Makes me wonder if the team that lost was dealt a bad hand. Was the losing team treated fairly or did they lose to the heavy aim effect?? When you have this interfering with competitive play for money this is very serious. And do we really know that all the pros know about the heavy aim issue or effect?? Either way this opens up a lot of speculation in my book. Because of this issue alone this should default H5 from competitive play or tournaments until the issue is fixed permanently. How can teams truly play this with confidence knowing this issue could pop up at any time and even worse only start effecting one team before its already to late. Halo 5 should no longer be able to compete in tournaments in this nature until this problem is resolved..
The pros from out of state on station B were complaining about it and supposedly Jimbo (Out-of state pro) tweeted that it was only dealt with when a Top team complained about it. I think they had like a 40 minute intermission on stream because of it, sad really cuz this problem is also silently killing the competitive scene.
Thanks for posting that. I was guessing it was heavy aim because they wouldn't say specifically what the issue was, just that it compromised the integrity of the game.
So I've just been watching the HCS Sunday broadcast (No spoilers) and they had to have a break in the middle of the Losers Bracket Final for something like a half hour or more for an undisclosed reason. The casters where saying things like "With this much money on the line the game has to be consistent and fair". So I don't know if heavy aim was the issue. I keep seeing a lot of players during the stream pressing start and doing the crosshair twiddle thing people to do when their aiming feels off.Yeah a friend of mine went to that tournament, which was inside a tent weirdly enough ,and apparently the casters or staff had to bring dev kits because the game dosen't support lan and the other stations were having aiming issues while some people were fine, but other people had it pretty bad. Interestingly enough those same people were also complaing about input problems and spartans not moving as quickly on input.
As a few people have posted in here before at a previous HCS Lan event Optic complained about heavy aim and 343 went around switching off consoles to fix the issue. So heavy aim can occur on Lan and could easily have been affecting some of the pros.
I haven't heard any pros complain about it though which is odd to me.
I agree with you, but the issue with what you said and with this whole problem is lack of viewable evidence which shows beyond any doubt that the aim, on identical settings, behaves radically different from game to game, and is connected to specific, identifiable issues like RAM, server connection, memory dump, etc.
If that was available and made public, 343 would have serious liability running tourneys with million dollar prize pools played on a broken game, unless they took action or instituted different rules/parameters for tournament play. But absent that we only have a rather vocal group of complainers. Not taking anything at all away from Optic as IMO they are godly in their dominance. BUT
if the blue side of MainStage was having issues enough to stop for 45 mins and try to fix it that's not right. NV would stand a better chance of collecting their $500K by quitting Halo and going to law school.
This is an honest question. Is there any single, dominant, governing board or oversight committee for E-sports? Does it provide a vehicle to challenge tournament results? Or do players just have to accept disconnects in online tourneys and other problems on LAN? Is it just a bunch of promoters and devs making coin off these kids?
Like I've said before if you want to make plastic toys for kids, fine. If you want to make a competitive, balanced platform for serious competition, that's fine too, but it better work
as such and be fair. I've learned a lot from this thread and others. I'm using some of Wu Ip Man's info to try to tweak my aim, but it's just a game to me and I'll never be a pro. The young kids hoping otherwise deserve honest answers and fair play.
