Default Anyone want to play some Halo 2 arena (MCC)?

I play ranked cause Iím not some weak noob. If anyone wants to join me for some fun, let me know. Iíve been playing halo for nearly 7 years now, so Iím pretty good.

I also have halo 5, but thatís not as popular, and I also havenít played as much of halo 5. Havenít even finished the campaign.

Anyway, join me if you arenít intimidated by a gamer girl who can 20-0 you in slayer

what does being a gamer girl have to do with anything besides you using this thread as an excuse to call yourself one

Sometimes I long to go back during the days of Halo 2 and Halo 3. Those were my fondest online memories, and it's probably why I enjoy the shitposting culture as much as I do today.

I had a good clan and everything, knew all the callouts for all normal + MLG variant maps, it was pretty great.

...Haven't seriously played the games for years now. Don't have an Xbox One and really don't plan on getting one just to play Halo. Halo's a dead franchise, which is a damn shame, but that's what happens when a dev passes on a franchise to another dev team. They completely ruin it and retcon some lore to appease the novels rather than Bungie's own bible. Not to mention the multiplayer is a mesh of shit that no one asked for.

It sucks thinking about it. It could've been something great, but once Bungie left, there was no going back. Of course the decline of the games started off on Reach due to Reach's mechanics introducing some pretty shitty gameplay changes for competitive play, but it was still healthy going from 2010-2012

Rant aside, I would love if I could relive the days of the old games through the Master Chief Collection. It's a shame though I would never EVER play the single player versions of those games. I don't care about "remixed" music or new voices for the first and second games. I don't much care for the changed cinematography for Halo 2 because I think the original shots and designs looks 100x better than the CGI they sprouted (not to mention extremely jarring). Halo 3 and Halo 3 ODST are really the only ones that don't change anything so I'd PROBABLY dabble in those versions just for the stable frames, still though...

What's better... doubtshotting in the distance or always trying to go for bxr?

Also, I was under the impression (when I bingewatched some streams of Halo 2 on MCC) that the techniques are still there (minus super bouncing) since the build is based off the Vista port which removed it. I think what you're referring is the "remastered" variants because I believe all those techniques are just gone in those modes.

Why? Because you actually have to use skill beyond a kill combo?

Ah, the good ol' arguement I remember back 15 years ago...

A shame too, because Bungie stated themselves that it was "cheating" but it was never enforced as it was all fair game as everyone had access to the button inputs.

And what I mean from that is... tournaments, or rather "MLG" events allowed the use of these combos.

Lmfao. I honestly wish I had a xbox right now. I haven't touched Halo since Halo 4 and I promise you i'd melt your face without any controller experience in over 10 years. My whole life i've gone with people talking so much shit about how good they are at Halo. Then I 25-0 them in a 1v1. If I get an Xbox I will contact you. Even so... Halo is more dead now than anything, which everyone else has already said. Which was the main appeal of an Xbox for a majority of people back in the day. Maybe Santa will be good to me this year though, who knows.

I can confirm. MLG allowed BXR. They did NOT allow double/quad shotting. Which was a shame because my team and I practiced double/quad shotting before going to Canadas first MLG event in Toronto for a good week straight. Good old days...
I wouldn't consider BXR a cheap tactic either. Extremely easy to pull off and basically becomes a reflex after time. Everyone had the ability to do it. Double/quad shotting was a little cheaper, as it was A LOT harder to pull off and i'd say a fraction of players could do this consistently.

Halo 3 was the best and worst time of my life
I seriously regret throwing a controller while my younger brother was in the room once
But I also do think that the game, and the mentality it taught me about understanding that losses are almost always at least partially my fault has made me a better person

I was definitely addicted though, and I probably would be again if I seriously picked up a shooter.

Never said it was cheating. Itís just a cheap tactic, thatís all.

there exists a game that came out before Halo 2

you probably have not heard of it since only the elite players of skill know about it.
