HCS Pro League Summer 2017 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

I had to watch like 3 times to get it. People kept dying insanely fast, and jumping really high and it seemed like someone was wearing like an overshield??

It's mind blowing that you aren't understanding a fairly basic thing. It's similar to King of the Hill but time ticks off when no one is in the hill. The scorestreaks are pretty standard and easy to understand - any points you accrue go towards your streaks. They have specialist abilities that accrue over time with kills, defends of the hill etc. It's really not that hard to comprehend if you watch more than 2 seconds and decide you're going to try and put the game down because it's not Halo 5, even though Halo 5 is a steaming pile of shit.

 

this. the success of gears and cod dont lower halo, but raise the bar of what we should offer. i wish it actually put pressure on hcs to step up. i know we have two dreamhacks incoming but if next season is like this one, its gonna be a rough ride

It would be really nice if HCS did something about the pressure. The high level of production from GoW and CoD make HCS lack of effort look even worse than it already is. Dreamhack will be good, but Halo is going to be a sideshow to everything else going on.

 

How can you people complain about H5, and watch that shit lol.

People complain about Halo 5 because it's a piece of shit. People complain plenty about IW, and BO3 before that, and certainly AW before that. People watch the Call of Duty events for the production value, the story lines, hype, and because their players actually go the extra mile to engage their fan base and relate to their fans. They create content and keep up with it. It makes a lot of a difference when there is a large fanbase that is emotionally invested in players, organizations, and stories within the games. Like the fact that this would have been Crimsix's 4th straight MLG Anaheim win. Or the growing rivalry between LG and Optic. Or Faze trying to prove knocking OG out last event wasn't a fluke. You get the idea here. There's a shitload more going on for Call of Duty than just the shitty game. I haven't played IW since I finished the solo campaign, but I haven't missed an event. The game sucks, but I enjoy watching the tournaments. As for Halo 5, I can't stomach the game, the casters are below average, the production value is very below average, and the players do little to nothing to engage with the fanbase on a regular basis.

Really? Now we're going to pretend our downfall wasn't Bungies fault for making the first of three turds? Without the Reach blueprint do you think 4 and 5 would have ended up the way they did? Think

 

did halo 4 have to shove in mechanics from a forced prequel focusing on a different class of spartans? no. not at all

God damn it Bungie why did you make Reach

Because they were done making Halo games but Micro$oft forced them to make it.They nuked the franchise on the way out on purpose clearly.

i love being able to hear the crowd reaction. it really emphasizes awesome plays and wins

lack of crowd noise is a pet peeve of mine, I can't help but feel like a weirdo when my gf comes home from work to me chilling with T2 and Elamite and his giggles. It feels really sterile. Like when you watch basketball and lebron dunks in an arena outside of ohio people still react viscerally, but when I see something sick in pro league and react to it it feels empty or awkward compared to when I see something on LAN and can hear a hundred other nerds oooh and aaah.

I dont care for bungie either man but thats irrelevant tbh

 

Bungie has nothing to do with 343 being the type of developers they are or the type of ppl they employe.

So I came to the realization tonight that no one involved in the direction of competitive Halo (343, ESL, Millennial) gives a single shit about competitive Halo. Anyone that does give a shit, doesn't really have a say.

 

EDIT; And that fucking sucks.

You guys say that you hate Halo becasue its far off the original formula, and then proceed to praise CoD and whatever that is, i dont understand what is even happening in the screen.

I feel u man, make sure to check it out when it goes back to ww2 it may look a little better to you,

I think hcs will get it

Together, halo 5 really isn't that bad, as long as they keep throwing money at it I'll watch, I feel like the hcs and bungie should delegate a little better, hopefully we see some of that with dreamhack

I hope this is a general sentiment for CoD. Honestly everyone is praising the circuit and production value etc but there's just that little niggle in the back of my mind that they're maxing out at ~50k concurrent even with all this.

 

WWII has hype behind it for sure so hopefully comp can capitalize on it.

You always gravitate to this but the only thing that kept daytona from maxing out above 10k was an optic/nv grand final. The big takeaway is that orgs flock to the scene and they sell out spectator and player passes

COD is going back to its roots with the next game.

 

If 343 announced that h6 is going back to being a real halo game I'd jump back in and support everything that is halo starting today.

Are you really comparing Daytona to an MLG open event? CoD has done much better in terms of viewership over past years. This event was bad in the less storied teams getting knocked out but viewership stagnation has been a potential problem for CoD for a while. It's not positive when it's standard for viewers to decline over the course of a game, the natural progression is they increase as the scene matures; GoW, RL etc. CoD imo should be challenging tier 1 status not scratching their heads wondering why their major events aren't showing viewership growth.

What are the chances that we will see a new G Fuel flavor called "Bubu's Dubu"?

 

If not then we are just missing opportunities...  Get me on the phone with someone over there.

It just hit me that Cratos did all that work to steal a pro seed and he got dropped anyway, damn.

 

 

That's what happens when the only pull you have as a teammate is an advantageous roster position.

 

 

I had to watch like 3 times to get it. People kept dying insanely fast, and jumping really high and it seemed like someone was wearing like an overshield??

 

literally none of that changes the fact that the scoreboard painted an extremely obvious picture of what happened
