What can I do/you do to interest you more in Halo and Halo Events?

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys.I wanted to make this post cause of the recent declined interest in Halo events I am trying to not jump to conclusions as to why) since last year around october-november and now in January.I made a post in the Ajsa club last year after Halo events declined n stopped,and made a halo operation post in this forum where i got some replies from some people  who were interested and now that topic is gone maybe this stays as pinned or at least for members to see and know.Halo 5 Events may become a non scheduled event after February because of the recent decline and may become a operation or community event game .Whether you play halo mcc,halo 5 or halo wars 2 or a halo fps on xbox one I hope we can together help each other in growing the interest in Halo and/or any Halo FPS for that matter in the AJSA more often so we can play with each other more during events and off events whenever we are able.

I want and hope to play with old n new members, Halo mcc, halo 5,halo wars 2 etc regardless of your skill level as we have had a lot of fun and hopefully more fun too. So you can improve in halo whether you play halo for fun,skill or both I will create new/update existing topics such as a Infection subforum,Arena topics so you guys can get tips/tricks for infection,ranked n social etc and I hope you guys if you see those topics to either reply there,ask me when i stream or just ask me on xbox.Try to check the halo subforums every few days or so as I post halo news whenever i can find one.

if you have seen them(or one or two topics and what you think:). I know most of you play for fun(I do that too)but I also play ranked which is competitive and I hope i can get the interest in playing ranked with you guys as I have played with ajsa valkyric,obran wookie and scorpio,taypoon ,rune once or twice .We can also play modes like slayer,ctf,strongolds and other custom game modes and custom forge games like fiesta,snipers,rockets etc too.Basically we play ranked,social,customs(mostly social n customs) and warzone during Halo events.Please share this post with members that have Halo mcc,halo 5,halo wars 2 so they can add me/contact me whenever they have questions about halo events or halo in general.I will make a post in the AJSA club about this post so people there can check it out or let other members know.Remember if you have friends that are male or female gamers and they have halo mcc or halo 5,feel free to tell them about the ajsa,what we do as a community and if they play either mcc,halo 5,halo wars 2 and if they join the community this post can be made aware to them.I will try to recruit both but more female gamers as I know a few streamers that play Halo or other games.You can reach me the following ways.Thanks guys n gals.

I wouldn't mind playing more Breakout on Halo 5 during the events, that and Warzones, Assault (the bomb one, I think its been added to Halo 5 now), and Capture the Flag, tho I know those require larger numbers, which atm is a problem. Unfortunately although I own Halo MCC, I don't have it installed as I had to uninstall it to make room for For Honor, so I wouldn't be able to attend any Halo MCC events as by the time I re-installed it the event would be over, my terrible internet means it takes like 2+ days to install a game (I just tend to buy digitally now). I have Halo Wars 2 installed tho and would deffo be up for any events on that game as well as Halo 5 :) 

I'm thinking a big problem with the decline in numbers for the Halo 5 events is the new earlier start time and the short time frame between them and the Overwatch event, as I feel that it puts the event in direct competition and obviously most who have Overwatch are preferring to head off to Overwatch once that event starts. - Is there any chance of changing the day/time of the event  for a trial period and seeing if that makes any difference?

I'll deffo be attending the Halo 5 Event this Saturday, in fact I am looking forward to it. I had lots of fun playing Halo 5 and Halo MCC with the AJSA last year, I think the Halo games were the first ones I started playing with the AJSA and then that led me to join other AJSA events like Titanfall 1 etc. :) Now I can't wait in the week for the next AJSA event I can join :) = Highlight of the week for me! :) 

Really hoping attendance for the Halo events goes back up again - perhaps Halo wars 2 might be the new blood that is needed to re-ignite interest!

I always try to do a mix of modes like what you suggest scorpio depending how many of us us there are and what playlists supports how many players.I am always open minded about playing almost anything ranked,social,warzone,social, though I always give a heads up just in case a match may not turn in our favor cause so many of us are at different skill levels and each of us have played the game either more or less and so we just do our best and have fun.I just installed halo wara 2 so i recommend we could 1v1 each other and play together as i am quite new to RTS,maybe we can give our view/opinions in a video that i could stream via twitch.The decline could be what you suggested with the event starts etc though I have to take it up with rune in case we have halo 5 events again or halo wars , cause we usually had halo 5 events last year at 6.pm est,if people msged me or rune if 6pm est is better we could talk about how to work things out. Yeah we'll see with halo wars 2 reiginiting interest, i know you,me,joe,rune and obran has/will be  getting the game

If u ever wanna play today or another day on Halo Wars 2 just send me an invite - if I am on the game anyways I'll always be up for sum multiplayer :) I won a few more Blitz matches tho lost a ton more too, Blitz is pretty difficult, but even tho I am losing more than winning atm, I'm still finding the mode fun :) - I've seen theres a Blitz Firefight mode where two/three? of you can co-op against the AI so if u wanna do that or do a Blitz solo vs each other until we get better at Blitz mode then I am up for that :) I'll most likely play Halo Wars 2 Blitz thru the whole day today, up until the Halo 5 event :) * Fingers Crossed for the turnout to be higher for Halo 5 tonight :) Those Condors that kept screwing us over are a legendary power up card which only the UNSC can use - apparently it costs 300 energy tho, so dunno how the enemy were able to play 2 or 3 in a single match - they r apparently pretty unbeatable from what I have read, I think we have to use a Mac Blast, or some kind of BIG Weapon equivalent to beat them. I'll let u know if I get the Condor card, if I do I shall add it to my deck.

I was thinking, is there any chance of making the Halo 5 event next Saturday (presuming there was one planned in the first place) a Halo Wars 2 event instead? I just figure that it seems Halo 5 is kinda dead in the water attendance wise atm, plus the standard version will have been out a few days by then for people that bought that instead of the Ultimate version, so I figure why not give Halo Wars 2 a try in the slot of Halo 5 and see if that makes any difference to attendance? :) Just an idea :) 

I've been playing alot on the non blitz multiplayer modes too these last few days on Halo Wars 2, have to say had lots of fun on them - the maps are exactly what I wanted, decent size and full of tactical areas to conquer/fortify :)  plus u seem to get a lot more exp playing the other modes compared to the exp u get playing blitz, I suppose its coz Blitz matches r quicker maybe? :P Tho I do still enjoy the simplicity of Blitz mode :) - I even gt a few new cards, tho still not gt the Condor yet! :)
