HCS Pro League Summer 2017 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

It's actually incredible that no one from ESL or 343 has had the courage to respond to this fiasco, or that no announcements about the future of the HCS have been made.

 

I understand they are under no obligation to post here, but I find incredulous that they actively avoid the largest community by far, that is largely dedicated to competitive Halo.

 

I hope that we hear something from them soon.

343 is pretty inept when it comes to social media. It's kind of a theme, but outside of the actual game development part of their studio, they refuse to hire actual experts.

 

Like someone with experience in community engagement would FLIP THEIR SHIT, if they consulted 343 and found out no one from HCS interacted with this site daily. It's essentially a massive stomping ground their esports consumers, and they pretend the place doesn't exist. It's practically a gold mine.

I don't know what else to do besides tweet, but please guys don't let this get swept under the rug. Let the right people at Microsoft know this went on this weekend - you guys deserve better as a community. I hate to get preachy, but this was one of the few times I've felt embarrassed to be apart of Halo.

Hell, they hired a fucking NeoGAF regular to run their esports program.

The smash crew came out big time. The EMX concerts were sick too. The smash guys aren't the biggest dancers, but those that did had a blast.

 

Still love Anti for this walkout.

I've tagged them in every tweet from someone high profile, fuck knows if it even matters at this point.

 

I have a feeling I'll just get blocked tbh which is the sad part.

This event is ESL's MCC.

 

Great content: Terrible package. They probably just want it to go away.

Turf, but it now takes place on a Halo! Because a faithful remaster that pleases everybody just isn't 343 enough!

I don't really follow this thread so if it's been discussed forgive me. But does anyone feel like snipedown knew about that render glitch. Looked like he was pretty specifically staring at that spot

good call on tweeting phil too, I'm following your example. with how much he talks about Halo multiplayer and the Halo experience, you'd hope he'd care

Except for the Timo/Simms pro league fall finals announcement of Dreamhack, it amazes me that 343 have failed to capitalize on the consolidated viewership at the end of each major event stream to release new information and get the masses something to be excited about.  I saw it toward the end of the last thread but somebody basically asked, 'So...what do we talk about now?'  Even if they don't have any more info beyond Dreamhack, just remind the audience of that.  There were way more viewers for worlds than fall season finals.  Keep advertising the damn intel.

 

This kills me. In the post-finals interviews with OpTic, they were asked things like, "What's next for you? What's next for Halo?" and they gave faces like, "...um, you tell me."

 

This is a business that's most successful when there's a carefully crafted, constant tantalization for what's next. In the MLG days, after every finals the reaction was always man, I can't wait until the next event! and we knew when and where that event was and what was at stake. 343/ESL refuses to dangle the carrot; they opt instead for the balloon, and it's just so sad, seeing it float away.
