Get comfy, it's a long one.

This took two months to write. Sort of weird to see it done. Enjoy. :)
Wow that is long. I'll read the whole thing later when I have time, but just from scrolling through I saw the pie graph about the weekly challenges. I hate that there have been more weekly's in campaign than multiplayer and WAY more than in firefight.

Heading towards bed now, but I know what I'll be reading during my lunch break tomorrow. ;)

I really love how the jetpack looks/sounds/feels in Reach. The movement is very natural and it's great fun to use.

I just wish it was a pickup only. I absolutely hate what it does to map design when everyone can spawn with one in vanilla Reach.

Sikamikanico, you're playing on other rosters, right? Let me know if not.

Dani said:
Yep but so is Bagel. So we cant get in any Customs action?
Thanks, edited.
You can definitely play Customs, just not until your tournament community has lost and been eliminated from the bracket. I was compiling a list of people that were ONLY going to play customs. No worries.

Looks good Duncan. Do you need the Super team right now?
Super team just pulls members from Team 1 and Team 2, right?

Then no, I don't really need that at all.

I think I have the master roster compiled... it's a beast. I'll count it up and give statistics tomorrow. Bedtime for now.

GhaleonEB said:
When do the customs take place?
Should be happening at the same time as the tournament, so starting at 7pm.

I think right now we have 96 gamertags that are only interested in customs, so there are a lot of people hoping to join but not an unmanageable number. Especially if we can get multiple lobbies going.

I was kinda surprised, I figured the Customs rosters would be longer for every community, but many only submitted a tournament roster (and mentioned they might want to play customs if/when they lose).
GhaleonEB said:
I meant, what day?
Ah, lol. Sorry.

It's happening this Saturday (May 28) at 7pm EST.

Oh. For some reason I thought it was another weekend. D'oh.

This weekend is my anniversary with my wife, and we're away from home on vacation. So please take me off the customs list with my apologies.

Also, the Challenge article is now split into five even, logical parts, so hopefully it's not so intimidating and some stopping points are in place for those who don't or can't read it all at once.

Damn you, Letters. Just thinking about E3 gave me the chubbs.

If anyone is feeling constrained by the bounds of societal pressure, trying to do too much in too short a time, here's some comforting words. And in a time when technology makes us more connected than ever, we've never been so alone. Take the time to enjoy the people around you. I haven't been doing that lately.

Win streak extends to 44 (I wish Bnet counted past 25 like the beta)! The people in Squad Slayer are so awful, I really thought the big party restrictions would make that a pretty competitive playlist...

I just came to talk about Squad Slayer. Played with EazyB, nutter and ram tonight and it was just wape after wape. Same with objective. It makes no sense, but I like it. I won 26 straight tonight, 33-2 on the whole. Feel almost as good as I was at halo 3 a few years ago.

You guys need to trim that down to...just GAF, really.

Also, I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed today. Ugh.

I fucking love Squad Slayer. Imagine if they got rid of camo and jetpack, with 75% melee damage and 1 grenade starts. Believe.

I'm starting to really like Zealot, a lot more than before.
And grenades are pissing me off like no other lately.

I messaged you on XBL earlier. I'm thinking about pulling an all-nighter. I'm about an hour away from doing it without trying.

Also, I posted some really crazy things tonight. :lol

And people are emailing HBO complaining about their credit bans. Classic.

Just insert some CTF and Assault games, like 2-flag on Tempest, Anchor 9, or Neutral Bomb, etc.

Straight Slayer to me gets stale fairly fast. Doesn't help they have three full built Slayer playlists, two of which are just one more teammate and one less AA alike.

The melee is doubtful to change. Though to be honest I haven't gotten annoyed so much at double melee as I did to Halo 3's constant and berating simultaneous beatdowns.

So I have been taking quite the break from actually playing halo. Playing a single game in MM here and there for the last couple months. Today I'm going to see if I can still do a marathon. And then between games I will be reading Ghal's challenge article.

If anyone else is on just swing me an invite.

I'll be parsing this over the weekend from a remote mountain escape. 3 day weekends ftw. I expect vintage GhaleonEB analysis and having already spotted 2 graphs from a quick glance at the first page, disappointment is doubtful. Thanks for putting in the time and devoting such effort for the community's
my
benefit.

About the tournament stream: how are we going to watch team one dong undefeated through the entire bracket? Answer me that!!! Suffice to say that team 2 will be just as dominant I have no doubt, but it'd be nice to watch the TJs+ as well :)

The "crystal ball" section:

"The Ball has talked about November 15 before, but now it displays the following message: On 11/15/11, play the Anniversary."
Interesting. This certainly raises hope. However, crystal balls have often been nothing but, crystal. We will see!
