Great to have @@Hysteria back in the scene!!!

 

It takes a bit to get used to H5 after not playing for just a little bit... but even more so for over a year. He'll be back but it'll be awhile. I don't think he'll be back in time for Denver tho.

Hysteria was bad at H5 even when he practiced

Pretty sure he did really well at the first worlds on C9. Didn't he do the best on his team that event?

Oh my days. Has that happened before to anyone else?

 

Also was anyone streaming? I really hope someone was streaming. I love how hard players try when they see someone is about to goose.

Hey everyone, hoping that you'll join us for the live stream next week and come away as excited for 2018 as we are. This won't be the only news drop for 2018 HaloWC but more-so one in a series coming this fall.

 

Fingers crossed for big announcements. I think Denver will be a test to see where we are in viewership, its nice we're getting another worlds with more money thrown at it but I somewhat worry about the player base with the game going on its 2nd full year. Especially with WWII, Destiny(PC), PUBG on xbox,and more. Nonetheless I am rooting for you and the team for the success of Halo! :)

I fully expect Denver viewership to be down hard thanks to a lack of excitement generated over the course of the season. It simply wasn't designed or scheduled in a way that could create momentum.

 

I think Worlds 2018 is an opportunity to reboot interest, even if the game is 2 years old. Especially if they announce a format that is more welcoming to participants who aren't pro. There's also a chance to keep people interested in watching halo, even if they don't play it.

Personally I think that a lot of casual people who drop-in to watch HCS as a spectator sport get put off by what they see as a secondary weapon (a pistol) as the main weapon in the game. Most people (i may be wrong in my assumption) want to see some sort of rifle being the utility weapon of choice. This also has the knock on effect of having more ammo in a magazine so multi-kills are more likely to happen if they are available (entertainment value). especially if you have a pistol as a secondary to whip out. 

 

Its like watching the first rounds of counterstrike game for an entire tournament. They should make HCS, BR or DMR starts (at least for Slayer) and probably tweak the auto aim/bullet magnetism while they're at it too to increase the skill gap.

I don't think people really care about the shape of the weapon on display- just whether or not good plays are being made with it. Pistol fights are interesting to watch. the weapon is weak in the sandbox, but I don't think that has anything to do with any viewership issues.

i've definitely seen a lot of comments in chat about the pistol

 

but i think what hurts us the most with casuals is the inaccurate observer mode

 

 

btw can we all rally together and do something about the player outlines CONSTANTLY being on, the game is so much less dramatic to watch

Wow, why does @@Hysteria have a green name?

 

 

:lxthul:

There's a lot of players I hope get given a #washed blue name. Make it happen.

Player outlines work when a game is slow which doesn’t exactly apply the majority of the time in Halo. I wouldn’t have any issue with using them if there’s a standoff but they definitely need to be used sparingly.

 

My biggest gripe with them is the fact they’re too thick and the colour is too bright. Needs more subtlety.

Saw this video on reddit and couldn't help but think about how it could apply to Halo. 

 

 

 

 

I got shit on for this during the Great Pizza debate of 2017.  But Domino's is great for everything mentioned in that video.  The food is like a 7/10, but the whole experience is a 10/10.

Why is the picture sideways cratos?  WHY!? its a screencap, not porn!!!
