In Response To: Re: Hal 5 Multiplayer Vidoc (Revenant1988)

: That is the most contradictory thing I've read from you. MLG and Reach didn't
: pan out because of bloom and loadouts. Not abilities themselves, the fact
: that they weren't standard and have variations.

: Did you even watch the same videos dude? They tell you flat out they
: consulted with MLG pros to cultivate that market again. They implemented
: their feedback. The pros playing say they like it, and are glad.

This means precisely nothing. MLG pros played Reach pre-release and every single one of them said bloom was amazing and would add so much more depth and skill to using the weapons. None of them are even half as good at evaluating games as they think they are.

To put the nail in the coffin, the 'pro team' at 343i are all on the payroll now so you can trust what they say about the game about as far as you can throw them. OF COURSE they are going to say it's great, that is part of their JOB now.

If I recall correctly, many of the MLG extended crowd and self-identifiers hated on COD for being 'no skill' 'scrub-land' or whatever. Yet MLG dropped Halo and still have COD on the books. Which goes to prove what I've been saying for a while now about 'Esports' in that it's less about the players and the game and more about the audience. No audience = no prize money = no tournaments.
