  1. Seven years here huh, forever love this community.

  2. Took a while, but we've got some more news on the TV series. Announced in 2013, it got everyone hyped, however 2018 is the year all the dead hype resurrects. Here's what we have: 2020 premiere, early 2019 production: 2018's coming to an end, believe it or not, and as each day passes we're getting closer to the next year. Spielberg's series will begin production soon, and we'll see the first episode sometime in 2020, if all goes to plan. 10 Episodes for the first Season: I think this is a fair choice, 10 good-length episodes. A lot can be packed in, whilst keeping it all relevant. If the show isn't going so well (which I doubt), they'll be able to end it soon as well. Master Chief will be "a lead character": "a", so he may not be the only primary focus, but it's likely he will be. There were many theories before about what this could be about. Harvest, Reach, post-Human-Covenant War. Now we have a better idea of who will be involved, with John-117 taking centre stage. We'll have a few other big names working on the series, such as writers Rupert Wyatt and Kyle Killen. One of the best parts is that Showtime's CEO David Nevins has said the series is "futuristic, space-based science-fiction, it's not fantasy". I feel that they're working hard to make sure this series sticks to Halo's roots. Are you all looking forward to the Halo TV Series? Share your thoughts down below.

  3. Whilst it's true this community may not return to it's previous activity, or even near, the Halo community in general hasn't been this active for a long time. I wouldn't say many drifted away into other games for good, possibly just temporarily. Many are returning with the good news of Infinite, and especially with MCC + Reach coming to Steam (and simply Reach being added to Xbox One). I know many who are looking forward to that, some still playing Halo regularly and others not. Halo's saved, and more, the fate of this site remains undetermined though.
  4. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 105...yes, I'm really back for it. Please, contain your excitement. Hold your applause. Keep your underwear on. Unfortunately both Yoshi and Maestro failed to uphold my legacy with the Site Polls that I greatly invested in, thanks guys (love ya really ). Honestly wanna thank them both for producing five more polls after I stepped down, it was much appreciated. I can't say for sure whether I'll be doing these weekly like I used to, but you can expect one every now and then. This community had and will always have a special place in my heart, and it's all of you, the people, that make it. Speaking of this awesome community, let's dive into Poll 105. Will Halo: Infinite reignite the 343ICF? I joined in 2013, just over over 6 years ago now. When I joined, the place was starting to buzz with life. It was warming up again after a previous period of inactivity. I can't speak too much for the 2011 to early-2013 state of the site, but from what I made out, 2013/2014 was the peak of this community's activity. Members were like family with each other, I'd come back home everyday to join my new-found friends here. We all had something in common, various things in common in many cases. Remember the days of forum games? Now we can't even get a flowing convo in the shoutbox. I'm guilty of inactivity as well, the already-present growing lack of activity here didn't give me anymore reason to return and stay for long. I always end up coming back though, because there's truly no place like home. Now Infinite is shaping up to be impressive, and we're getting a sick port of Reach to Xbox One and PC soon (hopefully). The Halo community is still very active, and will only get more hyped as time progresses. But what about our community? Waypoint's a nice house, but it's not home. Do any of you think the upcoming Halo content, namely Infinite, will bring the community back to life? Will it potentially bring new members that'll be here to stay, or have older members return for good? A familiar face is always nice, and a fresh one with passion is just as good. Or do you think the community has had it's time, and will begin fossilising soon enough? There's always potential for life to be breathed into this old dog. If Infinite won't do it, Reach and the MCC port to PC may. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. As always, Spartan out.
  5. Nothing amazed me about it, but I liked it. It's good. What I like most, is that we start in the point of view a Pelican pilot, Echo 216's pilot. We get a representation of the average serviceman's struggle in this war. It helps grounds us. Instills the fact that these are just regular people in a war. People who suffer loss. Halo is what it is because of how grounded it's been in the past. The books do some things the games have never (yet) done, and that is put you in the shoes of others. Know what they're thinking, how they're feeling. Spartans. Navy officers. Marines. Civilians. Aliens. Halo Infinite has already had a pretty decent attempt, with just a few minutes of E3 footage. I see a bright future for Infinite. I don't expect, or want the same things we had in the first three games. We need change, it's necessary. But it has to be done right, and I'm confident 343 Industries will be doing it right when Infinite drops next year.
  6. It's been 6 years since I joined here, 2nd October 2013 was a date engraved in my mind, used to love spending my days and nights here with the community. Here's to another 6.

  7. I don't mind if we have to unlock emblems, I kinda like the idea of earning them as Drizzy said. What I don't like is the randomness of REQs, they need to go. Earn them by achievements? Cool. Earn them in random packs? No.
  8. Good news is that Halo Infinite will be available on Windows 10 for those of you on PC. Welcome back!
  9. Most likely just Xbox One and PC. It's been confirmed for Windows 10.
  10. Welcome to the community.

  11. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 100! Last week I asked who you all thought would win in a fight between Thel 'Vadam and Ripa 'Moramee. Thel came out on top by the number of votes, though Ripa did have his advantages and would certainly put up a good fight if Thel was to win. Click here to view Site Poll 99, and here for the Twitter responses. What do you like most about the 343 Industries Community Forum? Now it was recently 100 years after the official end of the First World War, may all those who fought rest in peace. Centenaries are big this year. Besides WW1, we also had the Royal Air Force celebrating 100 years since its formation just over 7 months ago. Another big 100 is this site's 100th Site Poll. Honestly this community has come so far, and it's great to keep things buzzing around here. Many thanks to Twam for creating and hosting this site, the same goes to all staff members who have maintained it, and most importantly the members who come here and post content, form bonds, and share information. We've been around for over 7 years, and I look forward to many more to come. For this special site poll, I want to lay off Halo's lore for a bit (which I'd rarely do on this site), and focus more on this community in particular. I'm aware some of you voting on Twitter may not be registered on this site, but now's the best time to do so! A new member is family from Day 1. For those of you familiar with this site and the community it's created, tell me, what do you like most about it? As always, I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Spartan out.
  12. Keep in mind though, Ripa may have been cocky with Forge simply because he's a human. As you implied in your post, humans are relatively easy to kill and aren't likely to do a lot of damage when it comes to fighting an elite. Put against Thel, sure Ripa may be confident, but I doubt cocky. He'd know his species is physically superior, and wouldn't drop his guard down as much as he did with Forge.
  13. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 99. Last week I asked you all what your favourite novel/comics were, the victory goes to The Fall of Reach. I'm not surprised that TFoR came out on top, though I did think it would be close. Strong competitors were First Strike and Ghosts of Onyx. Despite all Halo novels being great, Nylund's three were the most voted for. Click here to view Site Poll 98, and here for the Twitter responses. Thel 'Vadam vs Ripa 'Moramee? This is is not a poll for who you like more, it's for who you think would win in a duel. Any weapon(s) may be selected, but both warriors must have the same weapon(s). Assume both are the same age in this duel. There have been many threads and videos on this before, but I want to see what members of this community think, especially in this day and age. There are advantages each Elite has over the other, and they're both exceptional Sangheili, but who do you think would win? Let me know how you think it'll play out and why. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Spartan out.
  14. Welcome to the community.

  15. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 98. Last week's poll had us asking ourselves which Alpha-Nine member we liked most. This included all past and present members of the fireteam. There was a lot of competition, but Spartan Buck ultimately came out on top. Interesting to see who people voted for and why. Click here to view Site Poll 97, and here for the Twitter responses. What's your favourite Halo novel/comic? This was one of the first poll ideas I originally thought of, but wasn't going to do this one because I thought most people wouldn't have read any novels or comics pertaining to Halo. Looks like many people are well-educated with the lore and have read a lot material, especially with those on Twitter, so I've had a change of heart. The external media is what really defines Halo. The way I see it, the games are only a small add-on. Regardless of how good they all are, I'm sure there are some pieces that are more favoured than others when it comes down to person choice. Which novel, graphic novel or comic did you like most and why? There are many to choose from, and I can imagine it'll be a tough choice for those of you who have read a lot, so if you want you may list one novel and one comic/graphic novel. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Spartan out.

  17. Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 97. We had some nice suggestions on last week's poll, talking about a potential replacement for John-117. With Locke being a controversial option, Jerome-092 was a popular choice. Many others thought we should have a different protagonist for each game, as suggested in the poll. Click here to view Site Poll 96, and here for the Twitter responses. Which Alpha-Nine member do you like most? We may end up seeing the old fireteam back in the newer games, considering they're reunited now. These guys know how to get the job done. They make one hell of a team, but who do you like most? This includes former and current (as of 2558) members, ensure you avoid spoilers from the books. State your choice, and why (spoiler-free). Looking forward to hearing your thoughts, Spartan out.
