Can we start recklessly speculating who is going to replace Huke? If I had one guess I'd say Ace, but there's a lot of young talent.

I wonder who NV will pick up to take Huke's spot? The only player that is even close to a positive replacement is Shotzzy, but he may not leave Splyce.

 

Honorable mentions: Tapping Buttons and Saiyan

If it wasn't for the fact that they placed stupidly well this weekend I would have said Stellur or Penguin.  Then again, nV has a lot of brand power that could be enticing so who knows.

Ok so, super high level wish list for next season in no particular order:

 

1)Oddball to replace at least one slayer per series

2)Eden slayer to die a fiery death

3)Empire strongholds to die a fiery death.

4)Fix symmetry on Stasis and try it again.

5)MLG

6)Proper LAN open circuit (confirmed pro league is dead correct?)

7)Please god get this weapon re-tune right but keep it mag starts.

If you don't mind me asking. What exactly do you want from the weapon re-tuning if the magnum is still your choice for starting weapon? I'm not against magnum starts, just curious.

So I really haven't been paying attention to Halo 5, just tuning in for the odd grand finals here and there. In terms of the settings for next season, is no radar just completely out of the question?

I think if roy is really retiring and lunchbox is not, Tapping should stay with EG.  It also sounds like they handled his visa situation so its probably a lot easier to stay with them.  If i'm saiyan im not leaving LG either.  They handle their brand well which means if he handles himself well, he can leverage that for the future.

 

Splyce should absolutely not split up.  i would keep that entire team intact and work on using change of pace to throw teams off instead of just trying to overwhelm them with speed all the time.

 

Honestly i could see Huke leaving as a catalyst to break down Envy entirely and have those players (depending on contract situation) all end up on different teams.

Mainly i would like the DMR and BR to not just be straight upgrades to the magnum and actually require center-reticule to be on the head to get a headshot.  All tourney long you saw players picking those up and using them exclusively from that point on.  A proper tune of those weapons would also be an indirect buff to the magnum, making it fill its utility-weapon role better.

Yes.  I know the no-radar purists will argue this all day, but after having played both the ability tracker radar is better than no radar.  The radar is honestly the last thing i would look at changing right now.

Gotcha, so basically nerf the DMR and BR to make it an indirect buff for the magnum.

if huke leaving causes the current nv squad to break up, does nv stay in halo or cut their losses? i know that might depend on who is running the show but is potentially being a sub top 4 team worth the rebuild project?

Now with Roy retiring we could see a good EG lineup. Tapping, Fal, LBX, Snipedown/Saiyan

Why Snip3down?

This is just wrong. Now you get people not even paying any attention to their radar because people are just walking most the time. Radar in all aspects is terrible.

Depends how much money they made from skin sales....

Yeah, no its not. People still pay attention to it, they just don't stare at it. its an effective nerf to the abilities that break this game.  I believe the way i do from playing a bunch of all 3 types of games and ability tracker plays and feels the best to me. I knew i was going to get a response like this but its opinion vs opinion and i won't engage in this discussion further.  Further radar changes are off the table so its just not worth it.
