    Speaking of Halo Wars, they just posted a writeup on Blood Gulch.

    I haven't played much of halo wars recently, but its still fun.

    Also we keep an open door policy. Send us a friend request and if you see us in a party join up, If there's 8 of us already we'll probably just whine a bit and play customs

    also I should probably tone down on the late nights. Fucking killing my sleep schedule
    You guys need to play more late at night. I am on the night shift (watch 3) and I stay up till at least 3 AM PST every night. By then there are like 2 people online and they're the ones who left their 360's on when they go to bed.

    Ahem. Anyways....in the interest of on-topic: My truskill rank of 13 has been especially taunting me lately and I plan to slap it around the head and neck this week. So if anyone sees me subjecting myself to random shit-flinging retards in a ranked list, you're more than welcome to join in/save me.

    In which playlist? I have a 35 in Lone Wolves but I've been meaning to ask a group to see what we can hit in a team list. I'll jump in with you for sure.

    EDIT: Shit, no I won't, I don't have Mythic. Squad Battle is the only ranked team playlist I have access to. See you at the end of September, I guess.

    perhaps that is because it is 6 am when you are up at 3 am

    Internet gets hooked up tomorrow for my glorious return tomorrow night. Also, during my move I realized I buy too much shit. Must buy less games. Might do a gamefly thing. Or just
    make ODST the Game of Forever for me. Great OP and nice to see my new tag.

    Heh. Well, the actual info on ODST DLC is that there is no ODST Firefight DLC planned. For now.

    I wouldn't mind helping. My lowest play lists are:

    Team SWAT - 39
    MLG - 23
    Team Snipers - 20
    SquadBattle - 16

    Team Snipers or SWAT would probably be the easiest.

    Man, that area of Pennsylvania I was in this weekend was like going back in time or something. Felt completely isolated because it was a private housing development up in the mountains, but it's just five minutes from a major highway that you cannot even see nor hear at all. Awesome, but having an internet connection is better.

    I shall be on shortly, but cannot be on as long as normally since school starts up again tomorrow. First day of the second to last semester.

    So, I've been thinking about getting in on these Halo shenanigans, and to be honest I really only care about the multiplayer side of things.

    So, to get the full multiplayer experience my choice is either wait for ODST and get it for $60, or get Halo 3 for $35 and then drop $25 on DLC (already have 300 points on my account). But, even with that I'll still be missing some maps and I won't get access to firefight?

    So, the prudent move would be to wait for ODST?

    I might as well post it here, too.

    So here's a question for you guys:

    I used to play games with a buddy of mine, from home, while he was at college. And it worked fine; we had two different ISPs, he had DSL and I had cable. When I moved to Auburn, where he was in school, we couldn't play Halo over XBL anymore, seemingly because we were both on the same cable ISP.

    I move back, get cable here? We can play just fine. But as soon as he moves back into his old house, where they have DSL, and I switch ISPs, it fucks up again. We can't join each other's party, chat or join each other's games.

    So:

    Me (Pell City, Cable) - Him (Auburn, DSL) = Works fine.
    Me (Auburn, Cable) - Him (Auburn, Cable) = Fails.
    Me (Back in Pell City, Cable) - Him (Back in Pell City, DSL) = Works fine.
    Me (Pell City, now switched over to DSL) - Him (Pell City, still on DSL) = Fails.

    What the everloving fuck is going on? We both have open NAT settings, our routers are configured properly, but nothing works on XBL. Is this simply an ISP problem?

    Any ideas?

    Technically you could just buy Halo 3 and still have access to 5v5 slayer/objective, 6v6 slayer/objective ranked, and 8man FFA ranked.

    But yea, it would probably be better to wait for ODST for the full Halo 3 multiplayer experience + ODST campaign + Firefight, and the only thing you would be missing is the Halo 3 campaign.

    The Leitners used to have similar problems with parties and XBL, but I don't think I've ever seen it as clear-cut as what you've just described. You'd probably be better served making a thread in the tech subforum.

    see now thats a good answer but here's the thing, what is considered most active? play everyday? play at least once a week?
    Its been mentioned that the in jokes and off topic discussions (which personally I love) confuse or alienate possible new members, but what do you consider grounds for active membership and as an aside where is the big list in the OP of member gamertags?:? other than the photo'ed guys of course.

    We're not that formal. Anyone with an image in the OP is someone who plays fairly often and posts in here often. The images have replaced the big-ass list that was in some of the old threads, it's not like we have any sort of application process.

    What's your gamertag? Have you played with us before? Keep doing that, we'd love to have you.

    There is no membership. There's just playing Halo.

    Did you ever get your eagle in Team Slayer, Pancake? Squad battle is also good.

    Honestly, if you guys ever see me on at night playing Bioshock or Ghostbusters (which is awesome by the way) feel free to wake me up out of my single player stupor to get down with some halo. Wednesday or Thursday is looking like some good game nights for me.
