XBL Service Outage affecting a 'LAN' Tournament and grinding it to a halt for over 2 hours. ✔️

Piss Poor Stream quality feat. Screen Tearing. ✔️

No webcams to see players. ✔️

No M/KB in the Top 16 at a PC First Person Shooter competitive Event. ✔️

Halo Reach. ✔️

Great start for PC Halo, absolutely flawless, 10/10 :weback::weback::weback:

I am. Adapting to a new input isn't nearly as hard as people think it is, it just takes practice and a month or so to really grasp it. Top controller players can swap pretty easily to M/kb, look at Lethuls clips. He swapped to M/kb and was doing exceptionally well with it after a few weeks, but he's still gone back to a controller. 

 

There's also the whole argument that running a PC League is fucking pointless if you can completely dominate it with a controller meaning that it will be the same Top 4-8 teams on both platforms. PC Halo comps should be run using PC's native inputs, and Xbox Halo should be run using controllers. It's really that simple. 

Just curious, would you tell a Street Fighter to not use a Fight Stick?  Would you tell a Melee player to not use a Gamecube controller?  I certainty would never tell a Counter Strike player to not use a Mouse & Kkeyboard.

I will die on this  hill saying that allowing controllers in PC Halo events is stupid when there are already console Halo events. If I'm going to watch a PC Halo event, I want to watch the top PC Halo players using M/kb, not the same 8 teams from console playing with a controller plugged into their PC, otherwise whats the point?

I agree with you but I don’t really care.  I just look at it as more events even if it is all controllers.  That’s how I’m used to watching Halo anyway.  

Walshy talking about who was best in your local are got me thinking that they should host online tournaments segregated by region.  The winner could be Warden of Area Five or something.

I just got home and started watching. Unlimited vs Incognito. Are these randomly assigned team names, or are these orgs that I've never heard of?

What a revolutionary idea.  Mapping Jetpack to jump while airborne.

If CSGOs xbox port was still supported and had tournaments would you really allow MKB? It would be completely pointless. 

Also instead of banning controllers just give them the same aim assist as MKB. More elegant solution and if people really want to stick to controller at least they don't get ridiculous amounts of aim assist for free.

Real question is if you would tell a Melee player to not use a broken Gamecube controller.

 

Also, Karma is at Dreamhack? This event is really the bane of Europeans with those broadcasting times.

I called it a night at ~4am, apparently right before they managed to get things going again.

I can't believe how different Karma looks and sounds now than he did in 2008. His voice is higher, he seemed less charismatic, way more humble...just seemed like a totally different dude. I was kinda disappointed. I really liked him the way he was back then.

I felt the same way about Fearitself when I saw that dude was playing Fortnite. As far as I'm concerned he'll always be a bunch of hair that leans in really close to his monitor.

Also, off topic, but apparently the MLG Twitch account was hacked and streaming porn earlier.

Google images and MS Paint. 

If you meant the MLG thing, I saw it on /r/livestreamfails.

Why on earth would you stay up? The best bit about being from europe is getting to skip the time between series and technical issues. Weekend mornings with a coffee catchup are the EU life, embrace it*.

*Until the championship match where you stay up far too late and it's really the only time staying up has consequences because you're in work the next morning where everyone can see you're shattered. Maybe you've got home issues they wonder, maybe it's drink, little do they know you just like watching the little red and blue men fighting on your computer screen for a bit of money and internet fame.

Roy is playing FIFA on Xbox as I'm typing this. Imagine if he and LBX reunited with Ogre 2 and Ola for one Reach event.
