  1. Great Scotts! Good news everyone! Cant wait to get my grubby little sausage fingers on the beta for Ins 01. It looks amazing and it's been a blast keeping up with it in the thread as it progresses. Also congrats to our new staff member Maestro! Unfortunately for Zandril though... he got demoted to Trusted Members instead. Sorry buddy.... maybe next year. Lol but seriously he's trusted. All jokes aside and when that bug gets fixed it'll be great to have the two of you in the warm embrace of staff.
  2. Congratz rrhuntington. I knew from the time you turned purple that you would someday make a great MoM because I started to monitor your posts and realized that they were quality! Thats saying a lot seeing as most members don't start posting quality until silver. Keep up all the good work around here. And I hope someday you make it to the top of those stairs.

  5. I'm getting more excited for this than I was for my own birth.... Idk if that even makes sense but I don't care! Everyday they release something else that just looks amazing!!!
  6. By new ways all I meant was the little tactical jumps from under the base on the right side. And I realize that the middle base is just a rendition of the hill that was already there but I personally think that it will prove much more useful and as we saw in gameplay drive more combat to that area of the map. and I realize that infantry combat could have always moved down the middle of the map and you had to be more skilled but I like giving the sucky players that need a base for cover more options to traverse the map. So I can end up sniping them in more places than one.
  7. I think that bloodline has been created for optimal Blood Gulch playability. The redesign on those bases to take out the highly unnecessary bottom level and adding new ways into the base, brilliant. Switch out some trees for actual cover, amazing. Lastly, adding in bases toward the middle making a 3 path option for infantry to get across the map, astounding. All in all 10/10 would recommend. -IGN
  8. StoneTown....... wait wait wait..... Stone...... town..... You have literally got to be kidding 343. Not that a name matters much and that the gameplay and aesthetics should be the most important part but come on. Get a little creative with your naming. Zanzibar is an the name of an island of the east coat of Africa. You couldn't just rename it some other African town name like Pemba... idk... just seems lazy, but on a bright note Warlord looks pretty sexy.
  9. Primary Announcement: September 2014 Caption Contest Winner Sorry I'm a couple days late. But it's here nonetheless!!!! To celebrate this bright and cheery month of angels and healthy food... wait... I think I said that wrong, let me try again To celebrate this dark and eerie month of demons and candy (ya that's more like it) I decided to pick a non-halo picture but a picture that I personally found funny and I wanted to try using a picture that is more challenging. Now for the--- Rules: No inappropriate captions. Try to keep it PG. *Looking at you GreenMoonship!* One caption per member, so try to make yours really count. Please have your comment only pertain to the picture. Don't just comment saying "oh, I really like what Other Person Implode said. :hrhr: :hrhr: :hrhr:."

  14. I put it there so people can practice and/or look at it in forge to get an idea of the playing field. although this will only be one of 5 so it won't get you that much ahead of the game.
  15. UPDATE I have shiny things too. Everyone that participates in this event will receive the gamer award. And as an added bonus if you are on the winning team of this tournament you will receive a brand new award. It'll be smaller than this.... and if you are looking for some practice I've got good news! and as for the official 343i PB tournament game type..... lets see... Here it is

  17. For The First Time Ever In 343i CF History 343i CF PaintBall Tournament Is Here That's right ladies and pretty ladies an official tournament from your friendly Event Management Staff. Now lets get down to business (to defeat the Huns) ...sorry :right: :right: :right: TIME ZONE CONVERTER :left: :left: :left: When: Sat. Sept 13th 2014 Time: 2pm EST Game: Halo 4 Gametype: Paintball (duhs) The tournament will consist of 5 matches, with each match consisting of 5 rounds. (remember these are one shot, one kill rounds) The teams will be 2 player teams. The two player team with the most matches won in a set, will be the winner of that set. If a tie occurs (which is highly likely) the tied teams will compete in one 5 round match for the tie-breaker, to move onto the potential next set. The rounds will be 2v2v2v2 no more and if we have more people sign up for the tournament then we will have separate "sets" of matches. Somewhat like brackets work, so if we have 16 people sign up then we will have the first 8 vs each other then then the next 8 vs each other and the 2 winning teams from those matches will vs each other in a condensed 3 match 5 rounds "set". In between matches players will be given a five minute opportunity to go into private chats and formulate strategies before the next match begins. Team setup: Sign up individually, We will place you in teams randomly. This will help you to meet a new member that you may not have played with before. It will also give staff a chance to balance teams accordingly. (hopefully) There will be a staff member there (most likely me) to host the event, make sure correct maps are played and everyone plays fair. We will keep you informed on who is hosting closer to the date of the tournament. This will be a one day tournament since paintball rounds are so short, we will be able to get through all contenders in a small amount of time. Please sign up below, and remember I don't care if you can't make it. ​So don't clutter the thread with "I won't be there" It's unfortunately that you can't make it but I'd rather be able to focus on who can. :/ If you have any questions that I did not cover here, please feel free to post them below as well. Thx.
  18. What map is that in the weapon testing, remastered multiplayer map or a campaign mission? Well anyways, great find on the video and my personal favorite change hearing them compared like that is definitely the sniper rifle.
  19. You Can't Get Older Without Birthdays (or Can You?) So as I sat in my room this morning talking to BZ1, going through a bunch of old members I knew and what the forum looked like when I joined I realized something, among the excitement of my 24th birthday and the start of a new month with great events and activities: I missed my 2 year join day!!!! So BZ1 insisted that I create the thread to celebrate the occasion. In the past, I was all about shootouts to other members when I'd write these types of things basically just listing people on the forums that I had come in contact with. But I want to focus more so on the memories and times I've had. I'd like to start with my join. I had never once seen or heard of forums too much before I hopped on here. Quite frankly, I hadn't played too much halo for a long time. I maybe stopped playing halo half way between H3 and Halo: Reach. Then a friend showed me forge... Aww forge... It really pulled me back into the scene. ​Becoming so fascinated with forge lead me to find channels with helpful tutorials of forge, and beautiful map showcases. Thus, I found THFE as one of those and wasn't too frequent to their channel but I did see one video that caught my eye. That video happened to land me here because I saw a community filled with people that loved the game and quite a handful of people that loved forge. So I started looking around, and I will say I was completely lost... Had no idea how it worked and was utterly helpless like so many of our new members are, no offense. But over time I started to get the hang of it and how things were suppose to go. What gets you in trouble and what gets you praise. When I first got here (get ready for the first shout out) I hit it off immediately with 2 members one was our very own Austintinacious the other being Robius5991. Austin and I were somehow always on at the same time and always popping up in the shout box together. He joined just a mere 5 days after me and so we made a new member bond. As we both met new members he always seemed more dedicated to the forum than the others and now look at him I also took a stroll down Staff memory lane and realized that the staff when I first joined was completely different that the one we have now. Azaxx, Archangel Tyreal, Adamj004, EgyptianGhetto, Insignia, Undead, Luke, Biggles, Quantum, The Director, GSD, Total Mayh3m, One, Drizzy_Dan, Absolute Dog, Spectral Jester, and of course Twam. I mostly just liked these folks because of their silly colors. I immediately became entangled in this idea of how to make news articles and how to get them "featured". I'd stay up late just so I could find articles in the weird hours before anyone else. I felt like I tore my arms and legs off trying to get things posted to the front page and trying to get people to enjoy what I had written hints the colors and spacing and all that garbage. SJ and Archangel Tyreal Didn't like the way I posted. So I always had to wait for AD and Adamj to get online so I could ask one of them to post my things to the front page. I kept getting put in the shadow of a member by the name of ItzVplus2. At first, I really didn't mind but once I started to realize that I was getting much less recognition than him I tried even harder. Nothing against him personally, but I really wanted to achieve what he was achieving. He still has more awards than me to this day and he's not even active. :/ Once Halo 4 came out there was a major drop in news to be posted and I felt left out since I was never the one getting posted to the news page so I slowly peaked out. Definitely more of a sub-conscience decision than a fully willing one. I went on a hiatus of about 7 months..... I would come on once every.. oh.. Idk 3-4 weeks. I'd check my notifications and look around for a short bit then off again. Then for some reason I finally came back and I came back hard. Since september last year in fact. I came back and picked up right where I left off. I started to post news again as much as I could and at the time AD noticed and asked if I'd like to be apart of the staff I said of course. But I still needed to talk to our newest Site Moderator at the time RSR. RSR told me I was in, obvi. Shortly after I joined the News Group I realized so many tasks that the staff takes on and how much they are responsible for. Made me start thinking and I realized that I wanted something different. So I eventually made the switch to Events Management (then Promotions/Events) I felt that there was more need for someone on the events team as we are a community based forum where we like to spend time together. It's been great ever since and I couldn't be happier serving such a great and awe-inspiring community. As I bring this to a close, I'd like to take the time to do some shoutouts. To the people that make this community what it is and help inspire me to try harder everyday. Encouraging. Laughing. Punishing. I want to keep this list to a minimum but I have a few. BeckoningZebra1 To my main pal and fellow follower of Christ. You deserve your name at the top of this list You're always there and keep me company even when I don't want it. You correct my grammar even when it's just fast typing Skype convos. You've become a real friend over the year or so I've known you now. Drizzy_Dan My idea partner that never has a dull pen. You are so encouraging and motivating that when you are around I can never find a reason to stop moving. Thx for that. Always down for a good time and lending some of the biggest hands with projects that end up too big for me. RedStarRocket91 You use too many words and I don't understand half of them. Your accent is funny and as BZ one said earlier today "I love Red's Accent, Full Homo" You have become a good friend. We share a lot of similar dreams, real life goals and just general story except for the whole I'm in America and you aren't thing. It's been really fun to get to know you since we are similar age and have similar experience. Obviously makes for some easy conversation. I'd consider you one of the top. Appreciate you and your hard work. Couldn't find a proper image of you so: ya? I know these are only staff members but that's not because they are staff it's really just because these guys have made their imprint on me and I want to thank them for that. Good group of fellers right here. So in the end you will go through far too many changes with your time here on the forums, such as I don't know anyone except Austin that was active back when I first started. You will go through different eras of staff sometimes fast and sometimes slow. Lose friends that you thought were close and gain friends that you thought were distant. But in the end you can have some pretty swell outcomes. But who am I minding this story doesn't end! If you just spent the time to read this whole thing I applaud and thank you. This post took me far to long and I'm literally losing sleep over it. Thanks again for being a swell community over the past couple years.
  20. That is hands down either one of the best memories of member names and who they are or one of the most dedicated site searches for everyone you've come in contact with on this site. I have a good reason for not liking this post though I'm out of likes for the day.... So I'll be back. I always come back. Once again I'd like to say enjoy your month. I enjoy your passion for the things you love and that you always see things through when you give your word. Great job and stay pinkish. I wanted to attach a photo to my post and I came along this and could not resist..... xD lol
  21. Well well well. look what we have here, an AMAZING member becoming MoM. If anyone deserves it, its someone with amazing talent like you I mean just look: Let me celebrate with a bunch of dancing BMO's: Enjoy your month.
  22. You forgot my birthday. I'm more than more than pleased to see these return. <--- that's not a typo. Great content. I'm always upset that I can't correct you saying you forgot something because you always get it all. (except my birthday) Great job D_Dance ;D
