  1. Why are the targets irrelevant? If they are in front of them they are probably going to kill them if they ignore them and turn around. Even if they know the ball carrier is behind them, they may not have realised he's immediately behind them. Generally speaking the ball carrier is a less immediate threat than an opponent in front who is shooting at you. It is often better to remove the immediate threat then target the objective carrier. Playing the gametype well isn't about solely focussing on whoever has the ball. Regardless I don't really see why people playing a gametype badly is a reason to not have the gametype in a playlist. Plenty of people play Slayer badly too. Sure it can be annoying if people don't seem to care about the objectives, but it is equally satisfying to triumph against a team of people who are better at shooting through superior teamwork and coordination. It's one of the things that makes Halo great.
  2. The standard of opponents seems a lot lower in BTB. Must be where the more casual players go. Which makes sense, I would only play 4v4 if I have teammates because it's a much, much better game, but if I'm on my own I might jump into BTB because teamwork doesn't matter as much, because no one can properly coordinate in 12v12.
  3. Genuinely no idea how you could have played Halo 5, and have thought 343 are 'trash merchants', and yet like this. Unless you didn't play the arena multiplayer of Halo 5.
  4. I'm with you one most of this but why is it surprisingly good? Halo 5 arena multiplayer was incredibly good. Easily the best Halo multiplayer ever, and certainly a contender for best multiplayer shooter ever depending on your taste. This is very similar. I'd say it would have been much more of a surprise if it wasn't really good. I'm glad people are enjoying it but it is weird how many people seem not to have been expecting to. I wonder how many people just never played 5 properly, and to what extent the negativity about the campaign just blinded people to the qualities of the multiplayer. The general anti-xbox narrative at the time presumably contributed too. Seems a very good decision to split out multi and launch it early anyway. Regardless of how the campaign turns out, it's nice to see 343 get a bit of well-deserved praise for once.
  5. I would like Trambahn and LH Inland Port.
  6. Who's that guy? Is he credible? He's certainly annoying. Awesome news if true.
  7. Anyone doubting the health risk potential should read about EPO era cyclists having to set alarms to get up in the night to check their haematocrit levels weren't going to mean their hearts literally couldn't pump the blood round their body because it was too thick.
  8. Without antidoping a lot of sports become "who is willing to risk dying/long term health the most?"
  9. Played Kanban EV again with the wife last night. It might be the best game.
  10. That's the average for all penalties or shootout penalties? I presume the average is lower in shootouts.
  11. We've moved into a new house. It's a lovely mid 18th century farmhouse on a country estate provided by my employer, but the important thing is we now have a games room, and I can actually step back far enough to take a photo of my Kallax.
  12. I reckon maybe Timmo knew it was more than four polygons but was using exaggeration to make a point.
  13. Belated thanks @Mortis @Munkienut, I inevitably caved on the last day of the campaign and pledged all in.
  14. Do I want to commit ~£200 to go all in on the Everdell KS? On the one hand it seems a ridiculous amount to pay for one game. On the other people seem to love it and I am very much tempted by all the cute animeeples. Opinions please.

  18. Haha, sorry! I've never played the earlier editions but I like some of his other games and this looks good.
  19. Kingdomino £12.29 Kingdomino Duel £6.99 EXIT: The Sunken Treasure £9.99 EXIT: Cemetery of the Knight £9.99 Unlock 8! Mythic Adventures £21.79 Tinner's Trail KS £43 £104.05 Kickstarters we paid for last year don't count, right? If so I should be able to keep things sensible this year, given that I have Kanban EV, The Gallerist, Fruitticola, and Venice due to arrive shortly. Plus Perseverance and Wibbel at some point. If I count them my total would look a lot scarier. EDIT: oh and a LOT of Railroad Ink, but also paid for last year.
  20. So why aren't all first party MS games released on PlayStation?
  21. The absolute worst thing for PlayStation owners is Sony dominating another generation and Microsoft leaving the industry. MS being competitive forces Sony to be more consumer friendly. Sony will unquestionably screw gamers everywhere if they can get away with it. For this reason, assuming you agree that acquiring ZeniMax makes Microsoft more competitive, this is good news for all gamers. Unless you believe it's so good for MS that Sony stops being competitive, I suppose. But no one really thinks that.
  22. No doubt, but the discussion was why MS would spend $7.5bn and not make their games exclusive, and you suggested to get them on Gamepass. Clearly they want their stuff on Gamepass, but presumably that could have been achieved by using a pile of money that is big but not as big as $7.5bn. Basically I am agreeing that buying ZeniMax outright suggests their games will not be on PlayStations in the future.
  23. I'm not sure they would have had to buy all of ZeniMax if they just cared about getting their stuff on Gamepass.
