Classic Halo Esports and HCS Grassroots 2021 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

PSA to everyone playing the flight: THE BOTS CAN CROUCH STRAFE.  Almost resulted in disaster a couple times for me tonight. 

 

Otherwise I'm liking the game so far, but we'll see what is exploitable once it's PvP.

You cannot hold more than 1 powerup at a time, tried it with OS.  You can activate it on the stand and pick the next one up.

New HCS blog released. Major points:

-Open bracket will be played on Xbox Series X

-Stream stations and pool play will be PC

-Events hosted by Esports Engine and it seems everything will run off their site and platform

-Grassroots events may award points

-M/KB and controller allowed at events

Probably worth pointing out that the Series X will be running the game at 120fps too. Sounds like it'll be a good experience for competitors from my limited perspective.

I'm super impressed, seems like they've nailed it.  Also worth pointing out they're giving players the opportunity to get used to PC if they have to switch there mid-event as well so that's nice to see.  If their approach to the settings is anything like this I'm actually starting to get a decent amount of hope.

To be fair, he's not wrong

If you can compete MnK vs Controller, ranked should reflect that

Allow people the choice to compete on an inferior input (mouse and keyboard) in pro play and also allowing those same people the choice to not play against superior inputs in ranked seems like it makes sense to me. Mouse and keyboard is horrible on Halo. Not one pro player would switch.

Changing the ranked settings would not make him happier. He doesn’t think mixing the two keeps competitive integrity. I think ranked should match HCS though.

It’s not your main weapon.  It’s your Sidechick.

Alright, so how's the outline system going to work in comp?  Are teams going to be required to sync up the colors they're using or what?  Cause I can easily see it being confusing to someone if 4 people are all using different colors. 

Waypoint article said each player will keep their customization/settings, but idk it seems like something that could throw people off.

I hear what you're saying, but I'd presume for comp we'd be using an observer mode and it would just be a Red/Blue outline system to denote teams.  That would make the most sense anyway.

Here's hoping that 343 developed a more robust observer system than H5's - not that it was terrible but there was definitely room for improvement.

LOL come on man it's the easiest weapon in the tech build besides the needler. And takes 1.6s to kill. Atrocious.

Don't think it was posted on here, so I do have some :intel:that I got from aPG's stream a few days ago. He said that there is a lot of movement with the orgs right now, and that there is one Org in particular that has picked one player and is building around them. He then said that we wouldn't guess who it is and wouldn't give us any hints. It must be an interesting pick because he said he was "happy for them" but surprised. 

Also ACE was dropped from his team somewhat recently (I think it was Bound, Sab, and Bubu?). Could be wrong on the exact team though.

Good video as usual.
My 2 cents: the Infinite BR felt really good to use, I really hope it's the starting weapon.

And if all else fails here's a crazy alternative: BR/Sidekick starts. 
Por que no los dos?
