Halo 5: Guardians Discussion

Recommended Posts

summit tried it and said the aiming was still trash and had FPS drops (visibly on stream too) while he played.

 

:/

We need him playing halo desperately

I'm just pissing myself laughing at Waypoints reaction to the radar changes. They're freaking out and all the radar "experts" are coming in to attack the changes coming.

 

"People can hide and camp harder now!"

"This hurts my aggressive playstyle!"

"Crouch is completely useless now!"

"Having working radar is ESSENTIAL for Halo's gameplay!"

 

Cry. Me. A. Fucking. River. Waypoint. A...Fucking...River.

Have the changes been applied to any playlist yet?

Nope. They will be enabled in a single playlist called Proving Grounds on March 9th and that'll be around for about a month for testing.

Mine paused itself at 48% and then resumed automatically after a minute or two, same for a friend. Just let it go on and it'll eventually say complete at like 80%.

When where are these arguments coming from? I'm not sure I believe any Waypoint users are all running ability radar customs right now.

Looks like the XBox servers might be down also.

Yeah, my update was going really slow and then it said it was complete at 43%. Weird

I got into an argument with such a person, albeit a lot more respectable. Wish me luck.

Killtacular! 

 

There was a point on the THC forums where I had the last response to every post on the first page. Not the proudest time period of mine.

 

Him not playing Halo is the best message he can give.

 

He wouldn't do it but calling them out about all the "fixes" they do that don't actually fix things would be nice.

...And there goes the last potential reason I had to play any more of this game. Aiming's fucked on console. Aiming's fucked on PC. How in the world they've managed both of those things continues to mystify.

Yea, aiming on H5 PC is better now but still trash. Not surprised. 

Better even with mouse?

Yeah the game still has the worst optimization I've ever seen and crashes freequently, but the aiming went from "full cancer" to "playable" with this update.

You mean 343 are incapable of fixing aiming issues even if they said so?

 

Worst part is its not the first fucking time thats happened.

Update days are the worst. Feels like I'm playing on a OG HDTV, the ones with 1/3 second of input lag.

I fail to see how this new radar would force people to camp harder, quite the opposite, should be able to move far more freely. Looking forward to testing it.

Yup. I felt like I could move around the map freely last night when playing a few customs against @@Infinity.

 

We would be 1v1ing and then he'd pull back and I'd lose track of him.

I would imagine it will have a significant impact on the crouching with autos effectiveness as well. 18m felt too short with sprint but at the same time 25m standard radar is just far too much info for the player that it becomes a crutch.

 

I think this is by far the best compromise possible, personally I didn't think no radar would work with halo 5's movement system, which might not be the most popular opinion around these parts though.

Since they're making sandbox changes hopefully they nerf the CE Magnum and remove hitscan. Deciding on a utility weapon in this game (even for customs) is already difficult enough as it is, ignoring that the perfect one is essentially in the game already and needs to be patched.

I'm surprised that after so many people have done it for literal decades they can fail to make aiming work multiple times. What are they drinking?

They aren't gonna touch it - it exists to be some super powerful Warzone weapon.
