How was that gloating? He basically said half of us are retired and I don't think one person from team 2 has showed any interest in this community match.

Which book are you on now?

I'm still on Clash of Kings...halfway done!

Letter's original post said Team 2's BS has to stop, lol.

That was not directed at any single post, (I hadn't even catched up with the thread yet) but at the thousands referring to it since that day. /still butthurt (edit- lol, ALSO hadn't read what pic above said before posting this)

Fair enough. I do nod in agreement to what you have to say most of the time, carry on with the occasional BS about other members' stealth edits. >_> <_<

People are so bad, feels so good.

Showcase number 5000 for why guests should be in their own playlist:

http://www.bungie.net/stats/reach/gamestats.aspx?gameid=606895667&player=TJ Ram

I would have broke my Xbox if I was the lone guy stuck with those 4 clowns.

Thought you meant this guest game: http://www.bungie.net/stats/reach/gamestats.aspx?gameid=606838645&player=AnArmorLockHero

Guests ruinin games. Ughh. Really needs to be some segregation done for guests. Make a select few playlists they can be in.

and GG plywood, shadowembracer, ram, thats about all from gaf i think. good stuff got another perfection raised my kd up .01 my win 1% and only lost one game due to randoms. Randoms are terrible. Been nice getting back to Reach after a huge BLOPS bender. Reach still has its problems but its not a terrible game, can't wait for FiOS.

You've gone full retard over this tournament, it seems. First of all, no one is dictating anything at all about this tournament; the most there has been is a few comments that were in a joking/lighthearted trolling manner about Team 2 (granted, the team is stacked with the best HaloGAF players, with the exception of EazyB, Plywood, Juices, Laughtrey, and BladedExpert*). Secondly, nothing at all about GAF taking on another community is even concrete - I don't think anyone has even been contacted about this yet. You're getting all up in arms over, literally, nothing at all.

*Don't go getting all offended now, HaloGAF. I'm not attacking you personally, or saying that you suck at the game, BUT based on what I've seen in Halo 3 and Reach customs, Team 2 and the people I've mentioned really are the best players in this community. IMHO.

Reading back over my posts from yesterday I did go full retard, and I understand you should never go full retard. I dont think my posts were brilliant but I was tired!

I personally aint even interested in being on the team, but I was just saying give everyone a chance to prove themselves if your going to pick the best for the team. I personally aint played with you guys much and it sucks that im lumped into badgaf based on that lol.

And I was right...

lawl at the people still pissed at Team 2.

Also, where has there been gloating from Team 2? I don't think I've even seen one person say that they want to participate in this thing. Chill out lol.

Glad I'm not alone in this. I check it for the second time this week, and it's just like a torrent of white noise to me.

Seriously, where does this "Team 2" come from, was that the team that did the last Gaf vs Bungie Humpday? So what is Team 1 then?

Got the LE cheap and this is basically my first Halo game. The bad voice quality and voice acting + slow start initially turned me off, but the career is very awesome now. MP is not really my cup of tea, but I take it.

A few quick points:
- I don't have a problem with Team 2.
- Friendly banter aside, I don't think the actual members of Team 2 have been gloating.
- I don't mind the discussion on how skill should affect team sorting for this new tournament.

- I do agree that the thread has been less than stellar lately, but it's been like that all week, even before the Tournament came up. This too shall pass.

And here's the most important point:
- We can have multiple teams in this tournament. One of those teams could very well be Team 2. If players are sitting out as conscientious objectors just to prove a point, fine. But I think that's ridiculous because there is no single Official HaloGAF Team in this tournament. It looks like we'll need at least 2 teams already, so there's no point in arguing.

Really, the entire thing started with "If we have 24 players, do we let one team be a duplicate of Team 2 and make the other two teams choose from what's left." That argument is moot if we only have 12 players anyways. Ideally I'd like us to have 3 evenly balanced kickass teams, but if that can't happen peaceably I'd rather we have 3 uneven teams and repeat the Humpday fiasco than have 2 teams and a bunch of pissed of old-schoolers.

Because 3 is more fun than 2.
Unless you're talking about Halo games. :p

TLDR: If you want to play, sign up. If the only way you'll play is to sign up as a team, fine. Sign up as a team. If you're not playing, please stop complaining about the teams. And everyone please stop complaining about people complaining (starting... NOW.)

Okay, how do you actually earn any credits in Firefight? I don't understand why I'm only earning 60cr after an hour-long Firefight game.
Play matchmaking FF not custom firefight.

But what if I want to complain about people complaining about people complaining!??

Sorry for shitting up the thread yesterday, I just got frustrated at how poorly I was getting my point across. Im not actually even aiming to be on a team lawl, timezones/ work and my general feelings towards playing Reach as a serious game puts me off. Good luck to the dudes who do play.

RedSwirl you have to play multiplayer firefight to get more credits, look in the multiplayer playlists for score attack or firefight limited/ arcade. Score attack is the solo mode which will still net you a nice cr bonus.

Have I mentioned Aerospace today? LMAO.

I think Aerospace could be Bungie's foray into publishing.

Edit: Detonator Games doesn't look up to par for Bungie. I'm going to pass on them being a client for BAC.

First of all, if Bungie Aerospace is a small publishing branch of Bungie, it makes sense for them to incorporate as a business.

Secondly, everything about BAC makes it sound like it's going to focus on mobile/downloadable games.

But, going back to my Crimson Skies point, here's a tidbit of info from 2009 GameSpot article on Weisman:

"As with MechWarrior, Weisman doesn't plan to have Smith & Tinker do the heavy lifting when it comes to bringing additional FASA IP to market. Instead, the noted designer plans to serve as a creative consultant on the games, leaving the day-to-day duties of developing and publishing the titles to Smith & Tinker's partners."

Well we know Bungie. When they say soon they mean "Soon(tm)".

I have a feeling Bungie day will bring some greatness. Somethings definitely brewing.
