What does it mean to "ping" your location?

It makes your clan tag flash yellow.

I haven't played it so I don't know the specifics but it should give you an indication of where your teammate is. I would assume it should be used when they need help. Depending on how it's implemented it could be pretty useful, especially when you aren't searching with a team or running into players with no mics.

 

Uhhhh, does this not already happen when you're getting shot at? I legit do not pay that much attention in H5 so I have no idea.

I just ran around tyrant several times and I think I like it. Will take actual gameplay on it for a real opinion but it doesn't look awful. We shall see

 Hello Beyond!

Hey duder.

 

One thing you have to keep in mind is that 99.5% of the Youtube channels that generate a meaningful amount of revenue (whether through Youtube directly or things like Patreon) are actually "big" productions with several team members. This should clue you in that trying to be a regular, impactful Youtube enterprise is actually a lot of work, and especially if you're going to ask for Patrons, there would have to be some kind of incentive as @ said. Your channel's theme is also...tragically...a fairly niche draw, unless you were to seriously expand your coverage to a wide variety of different games and slap a nice coat of paint on it, with you as a kind of verified gamer critic.

 

I'm a fairly busy man myself, and that is ultimately why I don't put out videos of this kind very often. Like you, I would never want to ask for money to do something that I just enjoy doing (it's why I don't have a BandCamp page for my music), so to be perfectly honest? If you have to decrease the amount of content you put out, it's not really the end of the world. Obviously viewers these days have severe attention problems, so if you're worried about your viewer count, maaaaaybe it's a legitimate concern? I personally have never been worried about that, but if you're trying to cultivate a following, that might be a wrench in the gears.

I believe it does. I haven't played at all today so I haven't seen what the ping does. I guess it could be beneficial to ping your location prior to engaging in a battle though.

give it to me straight, does tyrant suck?

 

I ran around on it for a while in a custom game (solo) ... looks pretty good, vaguely reminds me of a smaller Monolith?  Not the greatest sight-lines though.  Definitely better than Overgrowth / Riptide / Torque.

The ping is much more noticeable than the standard colouration when you shoot or get shot. It repeats about 4 times and has ts own icon.

I don't think so. I haven't played any real games but instead I've just been running around figuring out nerdy jumps and stuff. I like the size of the map and the routes. I also like that taking the man cannon isn't required and is probably going to be a bad idea in most cases. This map will play 10000000000000000000% better with no radar or spartan ability only radar because of the intricate routes that will be possible when players can't see you through walls.

Until every kid starts using it every .02 seconds.

I wouldn't really want to say that yet. It might turn out to be too small or get really stupid with radar if they don't adjust it somehow while having 8 players on the map. I think it will be one of the best 2v2 and 1v1 maps H5 will have. Maybe the best.

I can't see it playing well. It's so small. You can get around it so fast. It might play well without SAs though.

 

The AR spraying on this map will be unfathomable.

 

Maybe i'll be proven wrong though.

I didn't know he negged you BUT, he hardly talks. But you may actually be wrong. And honestly most people here do seem to have a vendetta against 343.

Just a thought about SC. What if you can only do it with speed boost, but its a 1 hit kill?

I think I might redownload H5. I forgot about something when I uninstalled it, there's no other games to play on Xbox one.

 

I got a question, I know they took off the region lock so is there lag spikes like there used to be when there was no region lock?

Its probably roughly the size of the rig but a lot of that is map geometry/walls. The real scary part is that its very very similar to a Destiny map that also has the same aesthetic.
