This seems like a logical idea for sorting out teams: there are 72 players currently in, divide by 4 (the number of players per team) equals 18. So that's 18 teams.

Take the 18 best players - all from Tier 1, and the remaining from Tier 2, and make them the captains/leaders of each team. That means the better players aren't going be together, so you're not going to get a situation like in school where people choose the best players because they know they'll win.

After that, I don't know. You could randomly draw teams, or you could work down the list, assigning players while moving through each team. So for example, you'd send Zoso Achilles to Team 1 and Mister Negative to Team 2 etc. while moving down.

Forgot to say, lanned Halo 3 for about 6 hours yesterday from casual to competitive settings. Game still holds up very well despite some minnor issues with the BR spread, and jumping was weird.

I still think the tournament should be zero-bloom.

Are there really people here who actually prefer bloom?
There's no way you can keep everyone happy. Fracas should be given lee-way to come up with what he thinks is a best alrounder. Getting obsessed with which Bloom to use... could end putting a dark cloud over the thing.

Not trying to point at you, just don't want it becoming some Bungie Vs HaloGAF Humpday madhouse of everyone getting upset.

Any ideas as to why the netcode has gone to pot since the new year? Mulitple games in Reach sessions now are yellow/red bar, increased latency etc.

Decreased population is obviously a factor but there's over 2000 in snipes now, I always prefer good connection and I'm still playing 2 yanks on greenbar whilst everyone else is amber.

We haven't been told there is no customizable HUD. So the disappointment from building up hope at this stage is potential disappointment.

Would be very nice though. The Campaign has a different HUD to Infinity. HOPE.
It was heavily hinted so... HOPE.

I prefer ZB (locked rof DMR) to 75% bloom and 100% bloom but most people here have played more 75 and 100% bloom to ZB, it just makes more sense.

Kyle does have a point on map distractions. Been watching some Halo 3 gameplay and everything looks so sleek and clean.

Haven is doing a good job at doing this, but Adrift is atrocious.

What would be cool is if we got a suite of arena style, symmetrical maps with simplicity in mind. I'd love another training facility like The Pit.

I prefer MLG settings. It's literally everything Reach got right and none of what it got wrong. But most people don't play MLG. I think its only fair we make the tourney TU settings. Whatever we do, its not going to be 100% bloom.

Jazzy posted this over at THC today... for those that like montages and H3, it's a pretty good production.
That was awesome. I wish I could snipe...


I completely forgot how funny, clever and downright informative this was.
Best promo vid ever. I think I posted it yesterday ;)

I really want to try and get a signed one. That's pretty difficult, being in Australia and all...

We played your haven map yesterday, fantastic job btw.

Someone who was playing the game with us, and already has played on Haven, says it was quite accurate, in terms of everything bieng where it should be.

Although the scale is closer to Guardian, nevertheless, great job.
 
I'm going to play Halo 3 until Halo 4 comes out. Game is so much better than Reach.
It has some bad stuff too, but I don't think as much bad stuff as Reach does.

Narrow FOV, crappy netcode sometimes, inconsistent BR...

but then you compare that to bloom, nuclear grenades, awful vehicles, the banshee, sprint double melee, derp rockets, easy sniper (well not for me), etc

MLG Halo 3 settings are amazing though.


Good video.
