It's been just over a week since Denver bruh. Let them take their time and hopefully it will be worth waiting for.

Shouldn't they have been in talks for the last weeks or months?

They probably have been in many talks considering the logistical nightmare of running an entire esports scene. You can play armchair developer all you want but it isn't based on anything but your own wants and expectations.

 

As I said it's been just over one week.

Debating on doing a happy “Halo"ween stream tonight. I would play Halo while wearing my Master Chief helmet :D

Just don't play H5. Wouldn't be a "happy" time.

Yes but last week was the CoD reveal.  Don't want to compete with that.

Sounds like there are other non-halo reveals this week that we don't want to compete with either.  I think next week at the earliest.  It feels long because we are all waiting and hoping for some really good shit, but 2 or 3 weeks is really not that long.  Much longer than that though and we have a problem....

Just doesn't have the same ring to it, really not a fan of the renaming.

 

OpTic and NV looks and sounds 10x better and surly its easier for the fan base to connect with?

It was Blizzard's decision to force new names wasn't it?

Honestly no idea mate, just a personal opinion of mine. Not a big fan of the names and personally think it would of been more beneficial for the league and the teams been able to use their brand/name.

Blizz is trying to imitate traditional franchise sports ... for no discernible reason

Sorry I have no idea how to use the spoiler tag.

 

Patch Notes:
 

 

 

  • The update itself should start rolling out around 9AM PT on Thursday, 11/2.
  • Once everything is live and verified, we'll then pull the trigger on launching the landing page on Waypoint and will get the word out across our social channels.
  • At approximately 1PM PT, a few items requiring back-end configuration work will go live - this includes things like the Arclight being returned to its previous value in Warzone and the new Commendations.
  • Lastly, at approx. 2PM PT, the new Halo 5 Local Server app will be available for download via the Windows Marketplace.

Note that unlike prior releases, there are no new REQs being added to the pool with this update so there's no need to hold off on opening packs and waiting for that propagation to occur. But please do note that if you'd like to earn the new Commendations, those won't be live until approx. 1PM PT (we'll get the word out once the work is complete).Here's a look at the patch notes for the "Overtime" update:New / Updated Features

  • Fixed a rare crash players could hit if they died while picking up power-ups

Yes, because in th event optic has to sell the team, the new owner wont have to rebrand everything.

"-Flagnum Type: Set the type of Magnum (Standard or Gunfighter) that will be wielded when holding the Flag."

 

This tells me that 343 are really going for making the Gunfighter standard for Ranked CTF, which further worries me about the HCS gametypes.

 

@@Deez Can you please tell us whether or not HCS will still utilize Magnum starts, with no Automatics?

APG’s kd may not be the best, but you look at the assists he puts in and how far ahead the rest of LG is in the other categories because of him. He is one selfless player
