#393310 Site Poll 94: Which Spartan-IV do you like most?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 01 October 2018 - 10:35 AM

This is really tough because they've introduced some fantastic characters in the extended universe. It's hard not to go with one of the studs on Fireteam Osiris but my favorite Spartan IV is a clear fan favorite - Gabriel Thorne. We saw so much development of his character through Spartan Ops and Escalation it's hard to not feel stronger for him than the other Spartans. He's every characteristic of a good soldier which is a wonderful setup for him to possibly make some questionable decisions against ONI in the future (he's already questioning some of the things they've done). 


I'd love to see some more Fireteam Majestic in the future.



#393304 343 Trying To Pull Players Back in With New Magnum Skins in Halo 5

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 27 September 2018 - 09:01 AM

Ashamed to admit, but I actually haven't! I just ran the numbers myself from what you linked in the OP, lol.


343's attempts to get people back into the game have always struck me as a bit... odd. I remember a while back (might have been HCS?) there was something where they publicly gave out a code for some special goodies during the stream. But I tried to redeem it about a half hour after the stream was over, and it had already expired. Just, why would you even put a time limit on something like that, let alone one so short? They should be doing everything they can to get people back onto Halo 5 given its dwindling population, especially for things like skins that they're giving away for free anyway. And yet they insist on hiding their incentives away behind a grind wall or ridiculous time constraints. Makes me wonder what the overall strategy is, you know?




And yea they actually still give out Platinum REQ Packs and Gold REQ Packs during HCS streams that expire after 10 minutes. It's more of a way to get viewers than to actually allow players to get the REQs lol. Their timing... I mean they just got MLG back January this year. THIS year. When everyone is all but done with Halo 5.

#393296 Weapons in Halo Infinite

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 25 September 2018 - 08:08 AM

If 343 wanted to make a good move, they'd include every weapon from previous Halo titles in multiplayer and Forge at least. If they don't make sense in the Campaign then that's totally understandable but give me back the Sticky Detonator!

Wow good stuff Moa!

#393285 343 Trying To Pull Players Back in With New Magnum Skins in Halo 5

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 21 September 2018 - 09:40 AM

Just when you thought you were done with Halo 5: Guardians forever, 343 puts out some very nice Magnum skins to lure you right back in. While some players have lost the resolve to play the game, I personally will be trying to get these just because I'm a hardo. 



The Magnum Skins are obtainable by winning games in Halo 5:




As you can see, the skins have wins attached to them which is a good sign for the future of earning cosmetics and commendations. These M6H-2 Skins are part of the new Targetmaster Commendation in Halo 5. Everyone starts at 0/75 from the first tier so no one is grandfathered into these.



And as a bonus, 343 Industries has also given us something far more appealing in a game that is much more popular right now: the Master Chief Collection! These special nameplates are seen on the player's GamerTag in the lobby of MCC and the way to obtain each has been conveniently listed under each of them.










So what do you guys think, should we have had theses Magnum skins a year ago when Halo 5 was thriving competitively? How are you liking the looks of these skins and nameplates? Discuss below!

#393271 How Do You Feel About The Future of Halo? (Quick Poll)

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 19 September 2018 - 08:40 AM

I have some faith that 343 will deliver us a fun new adventure in Halo Infinite and future titles but the track record has not been good. Especially after MCC got fixed and people are remembering how good the older Halos really were. Don't get me wrong, I like the evolved movement and Halo 5 is my second favorite multiplayer but I believe it to be in their best interest to take a step back. No one wants to go backwards when talking about growth but it's becoming more and more apparent in my opinion that this is what they should do. I don't think a complete devolution to classic Halo style is in order but something along the lines of the Halo 3 Classic playlist. Maybe leave Sprint, Thruster, and Spartan Abilities in the Campaign. 

#393269 Site Poll 93: Who's your favourite Captain/Shipmaster?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 19 September 2018 - 08:03 AM

I really liked Delpen's response honestly. However, as much as I pick on Yoshi, I have to say that his response is dead wrong. Palmer has the rank of Commander and this is specifically about naval ship captains or Shipmasters. Come on @Yoshi1176

#393246 Site Poll 93: Who's your favourite Captain/Shipmaster?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 18 September 2018 - 08:38 AM

My favorite ship Captain is that man you have pictured there, Captain Keyes. In the Fall of Reach you learn so much about him as a person and his tactical mind plays a huge role. As the inventor of the absolutely legendary Keyes Loop, he will always be remembered as the best to me.

#393237 Weapons in Halo Infinite

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 14 September 2018 - 11:22 AM

There's no telling how this game will go, who the enemies will be, etc. I want my classic weapons of course like the base UNSC set but for returning weapons I think I'd appreciate the Railgun making a return. It's strong, accurate, overall highly effective against most enemies except maybe the Flood. I'll take just a base Railgun. I actually hope they do away with the REQ variants of weapons. 

#393235 Site Poll 92: What's your favourite naval vessel?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 13 September 2018 - 04:04 PM

Not really my favorite, but definitely worth a mention is the UNSC Cradle.


If you've read the Fall of Reach series you know it as the flat repair station/ship that sacrificed itself and all the members win board from covenant attack by acting as a shield.


The ship itself isn't impressive, but what it did, and the whole naval battle that it was involved in really stuck out to me for some reason.


This is an excellent choice 

#393227 Site Poll 92: What's your favourite naval vessel?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 12 September 2018 - 03:47 PM

Nu uh, a ship's a ship yo. If I had a Navy the entire fleet would be Albatrossi.


Albatri? Albatreese?

#393224 What do you think about MCC now?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 12 September 2018 - 12:03 PM

I've been waiting to reply to this. MCC is BACK AND IT'S HONESTLY SO GOOD.


My friend and I love running Halo 3 like we used to. It feels just like it did on 360. The hit reg takes some getting used to because it's not as dead accurate as Halo 5 of course but when you do get back into it you can really feel it. The new menu backdrops are wonderful, you find games quicker than ever. I'm a full on Halo kid again.

#393223 Site Poll 92: What's your favourite naval vessel?

Posted by Drizzy_Dan on 12 September 2018 - 10:30 AM

My favorite ship from the lore is the UNSC Everest, a Valiant-class Super-Heavy Cruiser and the personal flagship of Admiral Preston J. Cole. We've actually modeled the ship for Sins of the Prophets, I'll include a link to an image of it and the 3D asset below, if someone on the mod team has an issue with it, please let me know and I'll remove them.



If you'd like to give the ship a more physical look here is a link to the Sketchfab model.




Beautiful work. I gotta admit, I'm very novice when it comes to ships. I thought that was a Halcyon class because it appeared similar to the Pillar of Autumn class to me.  :unknw:

Oh my this is difficult. These questions have been very stimulating lately and I'm loving it! I gotta go with a legendary Covie vessel: Rtas 'Vadum's Shadow of Intent
