As it's been several months, I had to back-read to see just where this mess came from. Seems to mostly stem from dialogue, shall we say, regarding Multiplayer elements being half-canon, specifically the canonical impracticality of Theseus - something that still stands, by the way, and a misunderstanding on your behalf regarding Jerome's rank. I acknowledge that Jerome was given the rank of Acting Commander (and bickering on this is pointless, clearly), however his depiction as seen in the multiplayer is less-than so. As I said, a "fully outfitted" Commander.Snockooz wrote:
Gods but this is tiresome.Quote:So Do you have any idea what that Backpack even does? Or are you just saying it not canon because reasons? I have already explained why that Mantis having a neural-link is very much possible. What proof do you have that a the technology to remote control a vehicle doesn't exist in the Halo Universe? They have Drones in the Halo Universe that aren't all that much different form Military Spy drones today. Do you have any proof to indicate that with the schematics of the Hydra launch(which Isabel would have) that the Spirit Of Fire couldn't make one?
There is no explination for his backpack. However as it does not show up in the campaign, it is essentially (that's the important part) non-canonical. If it shows up in Halo Wars 3 great! Then it's canon. But as it stands right now, canon is what we see from The Signal to Manifestation.
You have certainly tried to argue for how the Mantieses can have neural links, but as can be clearly shown from the Phoenix Logs, this is absolutely impossible. And we see Mantises in Spearbreaker, so their production and means of production is valid canon; Spirit of Fire is building them with scrap and reused parts, and they do not have neural links. Period.
I have also specifically argued against remote controlling a unit or vehicle from a neural link. Not remote control entirely.
Now, as you're so keen to demand proof, prove that Isabel would have schematics to the Hydra. Especially since it was authorized for widespread UNSC use after she was cut off from UNSC communications and networks after the Ark portal was shut down. And the Spirit of Fire would have nothing in the sort of communications from them. Do go on and prove that.
So then you agree that if the Prototype suit is to work in any biological operational capacity, it must be larger than a standard human to accomodate their entire body being housed within the torso structure of the mech. It must then be significantly larger than a Spartan, and at least as large as a Mantis. Which, given the already advanced production of the Mantis system, would render your Mecha obsolete and redundant. Marvelous.Quote:The impossible Hip structure of the suit is something that I have at no point ever tried to contest.
None of which indicate for size. And given that I've shown that if you put a helmet on the Green Machine you get the exact same look as seen in Halo Legends, the Midnight Into the Heart of Midlothian animated short, and the comics, your point is.... what? (And yes, you have been pushing for a two-legged mech. Be it a digitigrade structure or plantigrade, you've been pushing for a mech suit that would invariably be two-legged.)Quote:The Point I do contest is your assumption that the Armor in Halo Wars 2 is the armor In Halo Legend Prototype when we have 2 other instances of the Halo Legends design being used.
It doesn't matter who he's specifically talking about, the "heroes" of the story were made to look more human-like to make them sympathetic. Notice how all the "bad guy" Sangheili look just like every other Sangheili we've seen? Only the "good" ones fly in the face of established visual canon. Indicative, as I've been saying repeatedly for a year now, that the visuals of the anime is completely unreliable as canonically sound or consistent.Quote:In that Quote he is specially talking about the Female Elite.
P.S. We have seen a female Sangheili since The Duel. I direct you to the cover of Shadow of Intent, and the character of Tul 'Juran
