I wanna see Ace and aPG team up with a couple of other vets who are deemed not good enough for modern Halo, name the team "Get Off My Lawn" and outplace the young guns they're getting dropped for.

Ace, APG, Heinz, Eco... there's a good team. :ace::apg:

Did they clarify if the game is free on all platforms or only on the Series X?

I hate being the dream crusher, but with Heinz on the pro team he will be unable to compete in Infinite like Neighbor with H5.

What do people think about the idea of the ODST pistol being tested as the sidearm in H3 competitive? These settings need to evolve at some point..

I’m not surprised aPG got dropped no offence to the man as a player but it always seemed to me that the only reason he got on the team because he was friends with them and he certainly wasn’t as good as Frosty was/is as a player.

Yeah I mean I don't think any of this is wrong, even if it won't be admitted. No one was realistically going to replace Frosty, so might as well replace him with a great player who had H3 experience and chemistry with the rest of the squad. Definitely looking forward to an Ace+APG team, which feels almost guaranteed to at least be tested and could turn into a great squad with plenty of aggressiveness that a lot of current/future halo is missing.

In Halo 3, Halo 2 Anniversary, and Reach - APG was better. Howevewr, Frosty is the king of Halo 5 and will be king in Halo 6.

No, player contracts forbid it. However from my understanding, most CoD contracts were 1 or 2 years in duration and Frosty has been on the record as recently as June on his stream saying he prefers Halo. He could be bought out or just not renew his contract if it was only for 1 year.

I’ve watched Frosty’s stream a lot recently, and he has said that while he does prefer Halo, he has no intention of coming back to compete in Infinite unless the game gets close to COD-levels of interest and profitability. It just doesn’t make sense for him from a financial perspective.

Did they say $7 million for halo here? 

 

 

 

i feel like if @Clap and his team want to make this succeed, they have to come out swinging to get players to take the jump and draw spectators' eyes. if they can run this like they did the cwl, then we'll have a good scene on our hands

Shotzzy to Sentinels??? Although I think if Shotzzy would come back to Halo then it makes a lot of sense for Frosty to just come back. He also has been playing a lot of H5 recently...

Looking up CoD teams, there's a certain Huke fellow on Shotzzy's team too...

Unless there is drama we don't know about I'd assume that spot belongs to Frosty if he returns to playing Halo. Financially though unless MS really throws the bank at Infinite I don't think we will be seeing him again. The dude isn't going to just throw away money hes making for nothing

Look I know a lot of people are going to complain that we don't need any more H3... but I'm just happy that they're willing to put in the effort to tide us over to Infinite, and with a game which I enjoy watching no less. I stopped tuning in after the first couple of H2A cups, but I've been watching H3 streams pretty consistently on Twitch and I'm happy we'll get some measure of competitive tournaments over the next couple of months.
