*What makes a Halo CE server fun for you

Hi all,

Long time Halo PC/CE fan here. I would like to poll the community regarding the different variables that allow them to enjoy a halo server.

What weapon settings do you like? Do you prefer infinite nades or limited? What about shields, do you prefer shields or none? Spawning with heavy weapons, snipers, or standard vanilla weapon loadouts?

Do you enjoy slayer, CTF, or a mix of different modes all on the same server?

Personally, I do like to mix things up, but I prefer mostly vanilla settings. I think I would enjoy a server that has different gametypes, maps, and weapon loadouts all within one single mapcycle.

For instance, I think a good server might use shotguns only for hang 'em high, but the next time the map comes through on the cycle, it could be set to vanilla loadouts. To me, it could be fun to have things switch in minor ways every now and then throughout the mapcycle.

What constitutes a fun halo server?

Thanks for the replies everyone. The only anticheat I'm aware of so far is SAPP. Are there any others? Which one is the best? (I haven't been in the Halo CE server hosting scene since 2009, and needless to say, a lot has changed)

Can you describe what no-lead means exactly? I know it has to do with anticheat but what is it referring to?

I like:
•Fun maps coupled with fun gametypes. There are the basics that every server seems to play, such as Team Slayer, CTF, the occasional Oddball, but there are things like Assault and Infection that can be quite fun on certain maps.
•No Lead
•I generally prefer access to all the weapons that are supposed to be on the map (i.e. Flamethrowers and Fuel Rod Guns on Blood Gulch)
•If people feel like communicating and working together, relaying information, formulating plans, etc., those matches are usually exceptionally fun.

I don't like:
•When servers impose arbitrary rules like, "You're not allowed to fire rocket launchers at infantry," or "If you stand still to kill somebody you're a camper and the server is going to kill you automatically."
•Infinite grenades, especially on maps like Danger Canyon. They can make CTF almost unplayable.
•Gametypes that don't work well with the map.

Some interesting replies coming through. Glad to see I'm not the only one with a preference for vanilla/close-to-vanilla. Regarding teamwork, I know that my favorite halo pc matches were always with friends who could collaborate with me via teamspeak.

With the original halo pc, there were many unplayed maps I felt. Even still there seems to remain a big focus on a few of the classic maps.

While I have only experienced a fraction of the custom maps that are out there, I would say that I prefer the classic maps myself. I am sure there are a few out there that I should play with though. I am sure that with some time spent testing, a good mapcycle with certain gametypes and settings could be perfected.

I have a group of people put together who are working on bringing at least one server together. Hopefully we can even host multiple servers. We are planning to have some organized community game nights, anywhere from 1 to 4 per month. (Given real life commitments I think we could reasonably plan for at least 1 per month)

I appreciate your insight and will keep everyone posted about our progress. If you have any more thoughts to share please do so!

May you give your reasons why?

Well, the way he says it may be just a bad generalization, but the majority of spanish players are a bunch of teenage a$$holes.

I'm colombian, btw.

Yeah, which is why I asked him that question. To be fair most teenage players on any online multiplayer game are assholes. That's to be expected.

Yeah, but in the hispanic community, the percentage of a$$holes is bigger... at least in Halo CE.

Because they call out your name again and again and when you respond they shutup.

Also:

They quit the game before the PGC game shows up, so no one can blame them for there scrubby game play.

They are LAGGERS!

I'm not being unfair here but seriously, they roam around servers pretending they have the golden cock of lag rape.

It's not cool to lag other people.
In fact the Chinese have a hell for it.


And alot of the use wall hax.

Name one spanish player that you've found so far that doesn't speak the equivalent of village-idiot spanish who's fun to be around.

by village-idiot, I mean the four-word vocabulary kind of people who only ever say no mames, or boter when they die <

I found a guy who spoke Spanish but knew decebt English and was able to relay information from me to the rest of the team. So not only were we able to coordinate to some degree, but we were able to coordinate across a language barrier, which was pretty cool.

No lag, no lead (to have the option), no afk, a good anticheat, anticamping... But the most important thing is the people.

I love meeting females on HaloCE servers, delta ruins, inmure, extinction and hugeass are best places. I also love using broken french on Spanish speaking nerds in Bigass. But nothing beats a good evening playing Ewok with main man aLTis!
