People seriously underestimate the amount of passion people like Clap and Sundance had for the franchise in helping build both MLG and the Halo Community.

I think everyone realizes how much MLG loved (and still loves)  Halo. Halo was really the first game that put MLG on the map. Halo put e-sports on the map IMO. MLG was very good at working with what they had when it came to the Halo franchise. Obviously, people are more familiar with the tweaking that took place in games from H3 and onward (Forge and the ability to customize maps/games a little more), but it wasn't like they used H2's default settings. Things like removing Radar, removing the plasma pistol on some maps (the tracking on that thing in H2 was something else). Even something like making CTF games 30 minutes in H2 and H3 because Overtime wasn't a thing in those games yet. Even now when @Clap talks about Halo, you can tell he loves the franchise and the community. The Halo games dropped in quality and with the rise of PC gaming, Halo just fell to the back.

Someone did this for CoD, so I figured I'd fill one out for Halo too:

First Halo: Halo 3

Favourite Halo: Combat Evolved

First Competitive Halo:  H3 (When I found out about it ) / H2A (When I started seriously following it)

Least Played Halo: Reach

Favourite Gun:  CE Magnum

Favourite Map: Wizard/Warlock

Favourite Pro:  Gandhi 

 

*My experience with the games on the MCC is being factored into this as well.

While I love CE and H2 a lot more than H5 I actually almost listed Coliseum as my favorite map because of how much I enjoyed Coli CTF. It might have gotten in over Derelict if it wasn't for the fact that I never really enjoyed Coli Slayer.
