Classic Halo Esports and HCS Grassroots 2019 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

By variable conditions, he's referring to the "mud". When a box gets hot, looking around can feel sluggish, and shooting feels...bad. "Variable" is the perfect word for it, because it fluctuates pretty wildly. When NHE is working correctly, it's amazing, but when it gets bad, I've never felt that level of muddiness playing on-off. They're probably sidestepping a lot of complaints from players by running on-off.

 

I can tell you from firsthand experience, adjusting to playing NHE against players that are already better than you can be extremely frustrating.

 

Edit: Also, some Xboxes are just straight up better than others, and testing them to see how fast they are is quite the process. Another reason why Dman's LANs in Virginia are so stellar. He's done all that, tested all the boxes, and only uses the best of the best. His level of preparation is truly incredible.

 

For the people reading this but not discussing. There are two sides to this. Most of what hard way is saying has not been proven. The feeling of inconsistency is just players opinions after playing alot of Halo. I personally think that the hardware is not the cause of these perceived inconsistencies.

 

The second part about xboxes not being created equal is due to the silicon lottery.

Flamesword posted on Twitter that they weren't playing tonight, but I also didn't see them on the list at that time so I don't know if they figured it out afterwards or what.

They're there as sQ, and Ace said on stream that he would go to the gym to later return and stream the qualifier.

I wanted so badly to photo Roy and Lunch in Instinct jerseys for STL :(

Team Instinct brought to you by Reciprocity Gaming.

Also, it looks like Instinct is indeed going to be the Rec roster, otherwise this is pretty fantastic timing

Really pumped up about the ce tourney! I’m an old school player who enjoys halo 1 and 2 more than halo 3, so ugc stepping up and including halo 1 for people like me is awesome. Especially with how much effort must go into setting something old school like that up..shout-out teapot, devil man and all the other old school guys for taking time out of their days to explain all the new nuances of halo 1!

I wonder how many players and orgs are going to come back when the HCS restarts with Infinite, and how many we've seen the last of.

If there's money, they'll be back.
