Good to see some other names from h5. Is snipedown gonna come back or is apex going too good for him?

IIRC there was something from a while ago (when we thought the game was coming last year) that he was going to be competing at least for a bit, but hard to say now.  I'd presume that he'll at least try to play for the first couple of events but if it's another H5 situation it's hard to say how long he'll be around for.

Snipedown said he’ll be back if the game is good. From what we’ve heard he put a decent amount of effort into trying to line up a team so hopeful he’ll be back. One of my favorite players…

That man is just too good at Halo to not at least give it a try. I do assume it would come behind any other responsibilities unless the money is right for a full return in whatever situation he finds himself in when the game launches

I found a solid apartment that almost has me hooked for $1275. The one issue is I'm one of seven people in the world still hosting Halo LANs (well, before COVID I was at least) and I'd be giving up a lot of space to move to it from the house I'm currently in.

Man, it's bad out here in Vancouver. $1275 would get me a cardboard box in an alleyway somewhere downtown.

I almost went to university in Vancouver but backed out due to the very very high cost of living and that was several years ago now. Can't imagine how bad it is in the present.

In the last 6 years I went from:

  • 1 Bed - 475
  • 2 Bed - 550
  • 2 Bed - 1025 (Really good side of town, better amenities)
  • 3 Bed - 1300
  • Same 3 Bed after 1 year: 1500

Huntsville has gotten so gentrified so fast, but man we've gotten so many new businesses and shit in the process.  DnB, Wahlburger, a new minor league baseball team, getting a Margaritaville soon, but most importantly, we got a KBBQ place.

I'm busy for two of the days, hoping to get in games on the remaining two or in between other things I'm up to. Not trying to be a downer, I am curious how long bots will be interesting for.

Can confirm I'll be sweating my ass off to hit clips on those poor, unsuspecting bots.

Looking at the gameplay, someone correct me if I'm wrong but it looked like camo was on a static timer like CE.

From what I saw, yes.  However camo has been nerfed to hell, looks like it only lasts 20ish seconds.

 

Edit: It's absolutely on a static timer.  In the full slayer match they showed it spawns at the exact same time as the skewer (6 minute mark of the VOD).  No way that'd happen otherwise.

Yeah, two minute timer for camo. Making it only last 20 seconds is interesting, I'm not sure how long it lasted in other Halos other than H1 which is 45 seconds. 20 seconds feels like a really short time although it could definitely be adjusted.

With the ability to use power-ups at will now, I think it was likely to reduce the likelihood of it slowing the game down too much.  I don't necessarily hate it, but if it feels too weak then it shouldn't be too hard to bump the length up to 30 seconds like it was in H3.

45 was the standard if memory serves.  I'd really like it if 343 gave us the ability to change how long the camo lasts similar to the custom powerup options from H3.

That's a fair point about triggering them at any point and maybe making them too good. I'm curious if that means we can expect a weaker OS as well.

I can almost guarantee we have that option considering the plethora of options we got in H5 for custom games. If I remember correctly forge is supposed to be insane this time as well so not having an option for camo time would be crazy to me if they didn't include it.

Something else interesting, it looks like powerups will fill your equipment slot - and you can carry multiple of a single piece of equipment (5:34 of the VOD player has 2 dropwalls).  So it stands to reason that someone can carry multiple camos or OSs.  Going to try and grab more than one tonight.
