Halo Infinite guaranteed best videogame ever then :intensifies:

At least as good as S8 GoT.

OK so now the question is: What the HELL does 343 have lined up to get these big name orgs so interested in Halo?

MS threw a lot of money at the the first few H5 tourneys. If it's anything in that ballpark, that's a few mil right there. Plus, H:I being on PC and Game Pass means the audience is way bigger compared to H5.

It seems strange to me that all these orgs would announce involvement if infinite was 12 months out. We must be looking at a spring or summer release.

That would fit the timeframe of when we saw major orgs like CLG and Evil Geniuses entering Halo during H2A. They were privy of the roadmap all the way to Halo 5.

Its probably just another HWC big prize pool with crowd funding off of skins or w/e. Everyone made money last time so they're all back for it when 343 hit them up

A F2P multiplayer game with cosmetic Micro-transactions.  Basically a cash cow in waiting and I would assume we're going to see team skins like H5.

F2P is huge. Just last night I was with a buddy of mine who pretty much only plays Apex. I mentioned how the next Halo was going to be F2P for the multiplayer and he was instantly interested. He probably hasn't played Halo since 2010 but will surely try Infinite now.

It's an unbeatable model. I've spent money in games I only played a few hours. Would've never bought em. I've also played a ridiculous amount of games I would've never tried had they not been F2P.

This is what Rocket League is going through right now.  Went from ~150-250K concurrent players consistently to 1.8M within a week of it going F2P.  Obviously it's going to drop down a bit, but if even a small fraction of those new players stick around then that'll be huge growth.

A little reminder of the Sentinel rosters (Royal 2, Snakebite, Frosty, Lethul) first time not making WBF and which roster was responsible.

(Mods, is this okay that I post this here? I know it’s not HCS related but.. lol). 
It’s pretty wild what Ninja has been able to accomplish from Justin.tv until this point. I genuinely wish Halo could’ve been the game that catapulted him into superstardom as well as a bunch of other names I’ve seen in competitive games like NICKMERCS from Gears and all the other pro Fortnite streamers that have gotten huge because of that game. I’m not hating on Fortnite or anything - opposite actually - I just wish it was Halo that could have the millions of players like it used to instead of the several hundred. Congrats to Ninja on this, that’s pretty big. Signing with CAA is pretty much going to transcend all things gaming for him, he’s pretty set for a long time.

Just peeped at CAA's client list. As far as people knowing your name that is the ceiling. Other than being Jesus Christ or the Pope.

Along a similar vein, I remember watching this live and wondering how the Hell he had like 200 viewers on a good day

My friend has spent $3200 on League of Legends. Like holy shit. I played 10-12 hours a week for a year and spent $49. I regret every hour but at least only $49.

$3200.

Another one of my friends has spent over $700 in those fucking Funko pop dolls.

I spent about 1500 on LoL in its first 5 years and about 50 since.  (Totally unrelated, this year marked 6 years with my fiancée)

The ninja post quota hasn't been reached in a while. Then again, neither has the standard post quota...

Ninja does not look healthy to me. The pastels he picks for his hair make him look 10 years older.
