Iron Gaming tournament this weekend

http://www.twitch.tv/irongamingtv

This game is so messed up. People lagging out of games on LAN, matches that have to be restarted 3x in a row because the Xbox One's shitty controller connection stops working mid-game, players having to play as "IG Player 47" because they can't use their gamertag, game freezing up mid-match, matches that have to be replayed because hill time wasn't registering. The Counter Logic Gaming vs. Believe the Hype series took them 2 hours to play 3 games because of all the malfunctioning consoles and games.

I feel bad for the players having to compete for money on such a broken piece of crap. Good job, Microsoft.

I still enjoyed watching it. It's nice to see halo as it meant to be played. Aries from OpTic went off on reality check.

Who's Aries? You mean IG Player 53? He had an awesome triple kill on IG Player 57, IG Player 44, and IG Player 51.

1. CLG 2. Evil Geniuses 3. OpTic Great weekend of competitive halo. I picked EG to win it all and they came on second. Ogre 2 is still a freak.

Ogre 2 came up huge when it counted. 19-10 in the last game of Shrine TS, and 17-11 (I think?) in the previous Game 5. I was glad he shut up all the idiots in the twitch chat who pounce every time he goes a little negative.

Great games to watch when the game and console worked. It's always amazing to me how much faster the game plays at that level. The teamwork is unreal. Once you're called out, you're dead in like 3-5 seconds.

Currently Playing: 

MCC does not support lan, everything is network based, which is probably thee biggest fail. How do you hold tournements were clearly a player will have host advanatage. for average players its a big deal, for pro's its a huge deal, this is why you saw games were players were going plus 16-25 while everyone else was going negative. At this point why have a lan event? why not just do all of it online and save these guys the money of traveling . the prize money for first is only 8k, that hardly covers expenses and god forbid you finish 4th and get the 900 bucks. 

i watched the entire weekend and was exteremly dissapointed in the super long delays, it made watching the tourney almost unwatchable.

Tell me about it. 30-40 minutes between each game? Does it seriously take that long to get things to work on LAN? Or was Iron Gaming just trying to milk as much viewer time and ad time as possible? Not sure, but by Sunday night I was ready for it to be over so I could get on with my life. Waiting 30 minutes for the next game to start got old really fast.
