Halo CE LAN 8/17/13 NJ Footage

Recommended Posts

Update: The LAN was awesome and always re-ignites my passion for real competitive gaming. We attempted to stream but both of us are rather new and had issues with the stream lagging and looking very pixelated. We apologize, but we were able to cap a bunch of the games. Only 10 of them are uploaded, but there should be about 30 captured.


We ran 2v2's all night, and switched up partners each series.

First series = Gazzo + Teapot vs Dr. Fun + Undertaker

Second series = Gazzo + Undertaker vs Dr. Fun + Teapot

Third series = Gazzo + Dr. Fun vs Teapot + Undertaker

Fourth series = Gazzo + Tone (Gazzo's cousin) vs. Dr Fun + Undertaker


Undertaker played all night with a blank name, where Dr. Fun went under Right and John Mclaine.


It was 5:30 and I had work at 8 so I left after the 3rd series.



Gazzo and Dr Fun are partners but are splitting up so we can get some balanced games in. These guys are good players just not known in the community, but for those who are familiar with other names, Gazzo carried Puckett through a series vs Hanz and Pistol and won.


None of the footage is on twitch, but uploaded to Gazzo's youtube, which has mot here. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCI1oZxF2x-bPCmHYUTmJASQ/videos


Spoiler = I get my ass kicked. For some reason I am able to hold it down on Battle Creek more so than the other maps (because it's rather simple) but struggle with priz, damnation, and sometimes on derelict. 


If it's a match in which I'm playing with Gazzo, I'm bottom screen and he's top screen. He should be top screen for the entire duration except maybe switching off with Dr Fun.


Things to look for :


  • Watch Gazzo control the weapons and utilize his knowledge of nade tricks to obtain power ups/weapons from disadvantageous positions.
  • The high lethality of grenades, and how much I die to them.
  • Look for one player to die, and watch how the player who is alive positions themselves. Most players know spawns are proximity based, and there are random spawns as well, but there are tons of locations on derelict and priz in which you can force your teammate to spawn level 2.
  • Look for how the pace changes and we switch of establishing control, especially in derelict and CO
  • How to obtain weapons when both teams are timing them and fighting for them
  • Anytime someone picks up camo, how they control it. (lots of burning camo though)





The first one showcase a lot of what I say. Top screen is Gazzo, I'm bottom screen.

1:00 watch me save OS.

3:00 watch Gazzo nade rockets and camo to himself from bottom mid.

3:15 anytime we stand under a light in a corner and jump we are trying to force a top spawn.

4:50 a double snipe which isn't too amazing but the only good clip I got on footage.

5:45 Gazzo gets two perfect TSK's for a double. Visually it doesn't seem amazing but it's fucking amazing.

6:50 double melee. I had two throughout the series on camo

7:02 how to deal with an enemy who just picked up OS

7:25 Gazzo does an amazing job controlling everything. No scope headshotted someone through port.

8:40 I think crouching saved me from dying from that rocket





I'll do a mark up for this later.




I included this one because I don't get destroyed in BC.


There's more to look for and pick up on. I don't know as much as the rest of those at the LAN, but even they learn something new. Gazzo for example learned how to nade camo and rockets down to himself on derelict.

We should be live from Kearny NJ tonight and have only have 4 so it will most likely be nothing but 2v2's. I doubt any XBC 4v4s, but if you want to schedule something, PM me here and let me know.


I've been running 2s all day on XBC. I will be available for a while tonight if you want to do 3s or 4s. Just send me a message on XBC if you need a guy.

Sorry for the delay. Everyone just arrived, and we're working on getting the stream up in a few minutes.



We're really just working on making it nicer. If anyone has any advice or experience streaming CE and can help us adjust whatever settings needed that would be awesome.



I'd say 9:20 we should be starting up

The stream was too choppy and definitely needs a lot of tweaking. We did record maybe 24-30 games though. Ill talk to gazzo tomorrow about getting them uploaded.


Spoiler alert. I get destroyed lol.


Dr fun and gazzo are up there with the best nj has to offer in my opinion

Would a mod be able to change the title to "Halo CE LAN 8/17/13 NJ Footage"?

Done :)

Thanks Moa!


I'll try to get the others updated, I included some things to look out for throughout the series, and even some specifics for the derelict game. I never have done commentary but might give it a shot considering I got a headache throughout the night due to how much effort I put into thinking how to play. It sounds dumb but it's 100% the reason.


Most people have heard how deep Halo CE is, and how much knowledge is required to play the game at a top level, but it only gets more complicated when you realize knowing random spawns and how to control and obtain power weapons is useless when you're playing against people who know everything you know, and are constantly thinking of ways to deny you. Essentially you have to be consider everything going on in game from weapon/map control, to utilizing the spawn system and playing selfless for the benefit or your partner, all while trying to out think, and out maneuver the enemy who knows everything you know + more.


edit: If you have any questions, ask away!


literally anything, spawns weapon control, overall tips and tricks, or why we made the decisions in game that we made.
