I'm Grunt STG, I've been playing Halo since the original XBOX. Took a few breaks here and there, the longest being recently when I left after the release of Halo 5. I came back to find the whole clan landscape has exploded and everything appears to be different (I mean what the heck is Discord?).
Anyway I was slumming it with my brother for a few months but we kept getting stuck in lobbies where the 2 other team mates couldn't keep up and we couldn't carry them....and its frustrating to say the least. I figured a good way around that would be to join a clan or make my own. It hasn't really proved to be a "good way around" anything really. It looks like a lot of the clans that did exist "back in my day" either no longer exist or have moved on from Halo into other franchises. I see a lot of "role playing" clans, and I frankly don't even know what that means. So I put together my own clan, a website and all...And it has been a cluster ________. Recruiting is not what it used to be, at least not for Halo. Its been a struggle, but rather than give up I've continued on...
And that is what has brought me to 343industries.org. Looking for some good folks to team up with...I got a post in the recruitment forum, so if you are interested, check it out.
On a personal note, I usually play Halo a couple times per week. Usually right after the weekly challenges update and sometime during the weekend (if not on Friday night). I prefer SWAT to bang around in, but I'll play almost any casual playlist (especially to earn that XP from the challenges). I'll play competitive playlists as well, but the people in those game types are largely pieces of crap (sorry...not sorry), and frankly I'm not that good (but again, weekly challenges).
Hit me up if you're looking for a clan!
