Halo World Championship 2018 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

It’s a bit like professional poker in that regard. Luck prevails in the short term, but skill prevails in the long term. That’s probably why they do so many rounds.

 

A skillful player consistently minimizes the impact of having bad luck, and maximizes the impact of having good luck.

Exactly this. There's obviously a large element of chance involved in poker, but there are professional players who understand the game at a deep enough level to make millions of dollars from the game. It can be extremely entertaining to watch and play, despite the fact that luck plays a major part in it. Just like PUBG, if a game has mass appeal for players and spectators, there's going to be a competitive and professional scene for the game.

I just played for the first time and the frames dropped heavily every single time a gun fired. Has that happened to anyone else?

Was that your overgrowth game? Tashi was streaming it and I didn't notice any framedrops on his stream.

There's been times when it feels like my Xbox is underperforming, especially after having played multiple games in one go. Usually restarting it fixes it for me. Did you try restarting?

Now that Pistola is (allegedly) on LG, Ninja is gonna have to root for him.

 

That's pretty funny.

They got over that a while ago. They played afew games of Halo together on Ninjas stream back when Ninja still tolerated H5.

Are you guys intentionally calling the Kinect "connect" or am I just missing something here?

Noticed. Thought it was kinect but decided i must be wrong when someone else said connect.

Still no TO announcement?! With every passing day, 343 is destroying whatever audience we have left for the HCS. Get the damn ball rolling.

I don't see the viewership getting over 20k again. Too late in the h5 life cycle. Too many other good games out there that are actually growing their viewership. Imagine if h5 had launched as a complete game from the start.

@@TheSimms please dont ever give up on Halo, no matter how bleak the scene is. Please. You're already one of the most recognizable people in the scene.

 

However we're all really proud of how far you've already gone in the battle royale scene <3

Tashi said they're announcing it after thanksgiving. Expect it some time next week.

I would really like to see people's thoughts on Oddball on Rig, Truth, and Eden. I think those would be the most viable maps. Too bad we have to test them with garbage weapons to start and autos on maps.

Eden doesn't play as well as I'd hoped. Takes too long to get across the map with any degree of safety. Imagine Lockout if bottom mid was wide open.

Does anybody know of any good 4v4 forge maps? I went through forgehub two days ago for like an hour and legit only found one map I thought could work for HCS, it was called Divided. I'd like to see if anything could be put in for the future.

I can't personally vouch for any of these, but here are some that were recommend to me by some other people in the forge community:

Just got my first Fortnite win, my team mate died pretty early (but still kept the callouts) in the game and I somehow manged to win.

 

The adrenaline rush was insane.

Careful, the more wins you get the more addicting the game becomes.

The more I use the BR the more I absolutely despise it. Seriously you are so gimped with this weapon. It's not even like an "I don't mind if we start with it" kinda thing like I absolutely fucking hate it lol.

I just don't like how ppl always seem to get away.

It's been 28 days since the end of Dreamhack Denver and we still don't even have an idea when the TO will be announced.  This is ridiculous.

Yea that's one of the worst things. People seem to make the worst positioning plays that I KNOW I could punish with a magnum. But with the BR? Lol haha you can be in such a bad spot and you will never die to it. Your only hope is nades and melee.
