I don't know why they keep doing Halo 5 nights when Halo MCC is a much better option for them....

 

Well it was fun. First time I've played Halo in a while. Rockets and Shotties on Chiron were super fun.

I went over this. We played Halo 5.

Halo 1, 2, 3, 4, ODST Collection.

That's 5 Halos.

Halo 5.

Bam.

​This is the 3rd time a game has changed but at least the other times we got fair warning & could do something about it.  Really makes a mockery of the poll system maybe just go back to whatever the host has.

 

Not all of us have a massive harddrive and can switch between games so easily.

Time for external hard drive prizes? I think so.

Chief, what is an apostrophe doing in your plural of halo? :o

Well, we got through the MCC "fun". Seriously, I was excited for it after last time, but somehow we fell into the same very boring customs of old, and that's not my jam.

I can't believe people believed me about seige.., surely not, I'm just one man I have no authority. I'm not a host...

God it's me..

So some facts:

We did play Halo.

Yes we did play MCC in the end as we just started there.

The max amount we had was around 8 people. Most of the time was 6.

Had anyone else jumped online we would have switched over, heck if anyone asked to go that didn't have mcc event.

Dodgy for you I'm honestly confused why you uninstalled the game before we even had a chance to swap over, you did that at like 8:20, bit of a bosz move there which kinda back fired on you. Like even if we swapped you boned your self.


Also didn't see anyone else online either and when there's only 6 people playing a game you just keep playing.


Remember hop online, add people from nzgamer as friends, you don't need to wait for a invite, or have to send a message, jump in the party. Have a chat, ask "can I join? Can we do x y or z".
Everyone is good here, if people are doing hardcore stuff they'll let you know.



Absolutely if anyone else actually turned up and asked can we hop over to halo5 we would have.

Bosz got trashed with what sounds like a migraine, we started shooting in MCC for fun because he was late, he popped on and had to go and we just continued shooting there.

​Was the host there?  No. Was it the game posted? No.  As fun as they can be I no longer see any point signing up to these.

Yes, and Yes.

Its already explained; he came himself and then had to go, you can't really plan for a migraine or anything can you?

Idk man, you were in the party from the get go laughing and joking with the best of us, and like I said, I was literally going to say we should swap over now, you said you uninstalled the game. If you were just trolling me well done I believed you, I was going to shift if over for you, but then you did that... Everyone else had it and it was going alright.

 

Thats a significant point to make: because what if we literally went to halo 5 right then and there sir? You couldn't play anymore, would you still be mad?



Going by signed up as well we had 4 not show, 1 already said they couldn't.

So all in all I think the night went fine.

Yes because I want to wait another 10-30 minutes for you to possibly switch games.  Link also had it installed and didn't get to play.

 

Sane Idea:  Have a backup host

Insane Idea: have 20 games on your HD & we'll pick one at random call it Lottery Gaming Night.

I think the host was covered - mooser was there, bunny was there. I was spectating :lol:

Given the circumstances, I think that was covered as well as could be.  You all managed to round yourselves up fine.

 

As far as the game goes, 5 probably should have happened if that's what people were signed up to.  Hopefully it can be a learning experience, and if a similar situation arises in the future, there'll be an understood process for managing it. To uninstall the game in a huff so quickly tho, before anything was fully sorted out, is a bit of a dick move.

I guess what needs to be remembered is that, while this looked like it was mainly just regs signing up and it's easy to assume it's a casual thing and the flow needs to be gone with, these are sponsored and there is an expectation of some sort of professionalism.  For newcomers/outsiders it's a bit sloppy and not attractive.

 

 

 

Most importantly, however, I hope you're feeling better bosz   :thumbsup:   Migraines really are the worst.

 

 

 

ETA: Lottery Gaming Night actually sounds kinda fun :lol:

IMO Halo 5 shouldn't be one of the games for a game night. It takes up far too much space for what it is, especially considering MCC is also an option and provides a hell of a lot more options.

Call the whole thing off. It’s all going to be just Killer Instinct tournaments from here on out.
