    • Team Hardcore: Stayin' alive

      13 years ago

      Now that we've launched our toughest playlist ever, Team Hardcore, we thought we'd employ some expert assistance to advise beginners on how to stay alive for more than ten seconds. The MLG's own Dolbex has some wise words.

      TopStorygraphicTeamHardcore.gif

      Team Hardcore, to the uninitiated, or fresh-faced player is a new kind of hell. It is the level of hell where sinners spawn, hear three pops and drop dead. Respawn, a fizz, two pops, drop dead. Respawn, four pops, dead. You get the idea.

      But there's more to Team Hardcore than spawning and then dropping dead. Allegedly. Our new pro-oriented Playlist has a lot to offer players both seasoned and virginal. You just have to know the ropes.

      Anyone who's played me knows that the only advice I can give is to grab the skull and hide in a corner, thrashing the melee attack button and peeing yourself. So I enlisted the help of a professional, all the way from Major League Gaming, better known as the MLG.

      We found help in the form of Dolbex, the director of communications for MLG. Don't worry, he's a gamer, not a paid flack. Dolbex (real name, Gary Williams) takes a lot of heat from Bungie and Halo.Bungie.Org. In fact, there's a tradition of insulting him that goes back thousands of years. You see, Dolbex is a hardcore player. So hardcore in fact, that at one HBO LAN party (playing Halo one) he showed up with a duke controller, fused, in unholy matrimony to a digital watch, so that he could time weapon respawns to the microsecond.

      Dismissing cheating accusations with the qualifier that anyone could attach a digital watch to their controller, he was henceforth never to be known as Dolbex again. From that moment on, he would become "Suckbex, Turdbex, Cheatbex, Jerkbex " and so on. It should be noted that Toolbex is not only extraordinarily good at the game, he's also extraordinarily pleasant and in real life, modest.

      Pleasant enough to sit down with us and give us noobz some pointers for the horror that lurks inside Team Hardcore.

      "I hope they don't attack us from space."

      Lots of folks misunderstand the relationship between Bungie and MLG. The MLG picks games that suit their tournament style, they don't design playlists for us, and we don't interfere with their tournaments. As a matter of fact, we have a very pleasant, friendly relationship. The fact that it took nearly a year to have a "Pro" playlist on Halo 2 matchmaking has much more to do with the reality of playlist design and the current makeup of players than anything else.

      Not that the MLG didn't want one. Crapbex explains, "I emailed Sketch and asked if it would be possible for MLG to have a playlist that we could have input on and update on a fairly regular basis. More or less like a practice playlist for our events. Sketch contacted me a few days later and gave us the skinny. Apparently it wasn't all that easy to update a playlist's game types for several reasons (B.net, stats, Xbox Live stuff, etc)."

      So we put MLG off for a bit, but a hardcore playlist was imagined from the very outset. However, putting one in at the launch of the game would have been a terrible idea. The barrier to entry for normal players would have been too high, and left most players with a bad taste in their mouths. Basically, we had to wait until this was something that could please the majority of players. But it was not designed simply for the MLG. In fact, we did wonder if the MLG would find our interpretation of a "pro" playlist to their liking.


      Smegbex assured us it was. "I think Dyslexia summed that question up very well in his recent write-up on MLG. While the playlist isn't a direct copy of the MLG tourney game types, it definitely has roots in what we are playing. I think most everyone is finding the playlist a lot of fun and enjoying kicking some ass with the weapon-set they know best. Just this morning I saw on our forums a post by TWISTED-BULLET that was entitled: 'Christmas Came Early! Matchmade in Heaven.' If that doesn't tell you people are enjoying it, I don't know what will."

      But we're not here to be patted on the back by Fartbex or the MLG. We're here to help you, the ruddy-cheeked cherub gamer, enter the black horror of Team Hardcore with maximum lubrication. That lubrication of course, being the slippery unguent of advice.

      Scatbex's first rule of Team Hardcore: Don't go there alone. "Definitely knowing who you are playing with helps. I never quite understood why some players just run into a game all by themselves not knowing anyone from the game. Taking in at least one friend will make a huge difference in how well you can perform."

      Cheesebex is of course correct. The more complete and cohesive a team, the less chance there is of your new teammates quitting, and leaving you to fend for yourself.

      But there's more to it than keeping a team of four in there with you.

      "Let's ALL get rockets!"

      "Teamwork is at a much higher importance with the settings on the Team Hardcore Playlist and you need to know how to interact with your team. So, before you jump into a game talk about what your strategy is going to be... what your role is. That way, even if it doesn't work you know that next time you need to take a different approach."
