I really like a lot of the ESL halo people, I hope we continue to see Elam casting halo, he's great.

I like him as a caster as well. Overall cool guy. Plus when Str8 played Cratos team at Worlds, Elamite was leading the hype squad on the str8 rippin side In the crowd lol Was awesome to see.

Hilariously, someone created a Chrome extension that allowed you to bulk sell as many different REQs as you wanted of any weapon, vehicle, power up, or custom filtered option.

 

It was removed from the Chrome extension page because of a complaint from (I'm guessing) MS or 343 because it had the word "Halo" in the name.  It was actually a beautifully built extension that fit the exact design style of the Waypoint site.  Sadly, the individual who developed it never re-uploaded with a new extension name.

 

TL:DR; A community member built a solution to solve a problem that everyone has complained about since day 1 - solution is removed because petty big company.

 

Edit: Also should add, if you already were using the extension and still have it in Chrome, you can keep using it.  If you delete it, you won't be able to get it back.

This isn't giving the full story. They removed it due to the name, sure but the creator was free to upload it again, he even posted on reddit saying he was going to, he was just busy with life.

343 are incompetent devs and the list of problems with Halo 5 is too long. Reach had a better a UI than 4 and 5.

Lololol

LOL what?

 

Season pass has historically always meant "all DLC released for this game during its lifetime"

 

And yeah, the UI (or UX if your hip) is sorely lacking.  Why do i even have to back out to the main menu to change from ranked/social/warzone?

 

The "sometimes i'm going to reload when you switch menu's and sometimes i'm not" is annoying.  Selling and opening reqs is annoying.  it takes FOREVER.

 

AND the big one, for some reason whenever i try to create a custom game i can NEVER find the KotH or Oddball options in the default gametypes.  Not sure how such a simple UI glitch has gone this long without getting corrected....

I don't think its a technical skill issue as much as its a time management issue.  I remember watching "The Sprint" and they made a comment about "dont worry about the UI, we leave that for last".   

 

Where i work (yeah i know its not game development but i fail to see how this particular concept wouldn't transfer) the UI is an iterative part of the whole process.  it kind of has to be so that it becomes a part of the testing process early and you can identify shit that doesn't work and still have time to improve it.

Pro-tip on switching multiplayer modes: use the left and right bumpers instead of backing out. You can switch between arena, custom games, and warzone instantly.

Idk how it happens either really I don't think a new UI should even be allowed until they can fully explain how the new UI is objectively better than what was used in H3/Reach. Lets be real for a second on the loading screens they have two different circular loading symbols in the same corner that play one after another. They obviously have no attention for detail whatsoever.

Same thing happens in Destiny too, but unlike 343i, Bungie said ' Go ahead ' and I don't see myself playing Destiny without DIM. It seems that 343i has plenty of learning to do still, which is sad cuz they have been classified as an ' AAA ' studio for over 5 years already.

 

 

The Multi situation is just sad, disgusting and ridiculous. Disagreement over things sparks discussion, and discussion is a GOOD THING. Unfortunately they just took the high road and kept their circle-jerk alive and well.

Pretty sure it's on the bottom of the screen? 

 

It did get added in an update (and was broken for a while after said update), so might explain why you haven't heard of it.

I woke up to 4 emails from different AAA studios with offers. This is so bizarre.

Go do Overwatch if they offered :> Game needs more good maps.

Lol must be.  I'm sure i was on autopilot by then.

 

Huh, I guess there is a reason you're called MultiLockOn...

 

OHHH bad dad joke.  2/10. I still like it.

There is no level of incompetence that won't be tolerated at a place like 343 Industries, as long as you look good and "professional" while there and always have a chirpy, ditzy smile on your face.

Congrats now go work for a real AAA studio and help build games that are actually good rather than soulless trashcans. Take everything you wanted Halo to be and create it elsewhere

I want to try out the Halo 3 Classic playlist, but that would involve installing Halo 5 as well as playing Halo 5

 

It's god-awful. Don't waste your energy even considering it.
