Data Drop 82: What Have U Done W/ My Armor

Plenty of things to discuss despite no Community Update. Something always seems to find a way to irk the community, and 343 has found a way to do it again! This time making changes to Chief's signature look. But we've also got HCS settings updates, difficulty finding Halo stuff, and people not understanding that Trueskill2 is working exactly as it should.

Data Drop 81: Halo: Online/Eldewrito Controversy

I'm joined this week by CMT member Masterz1337, DH Happy Hour streamer TheLosBurger, and Mixer streamer DaddyTrax to discuss the Eldewrito controversy with 343 and the recent Twitch bannings for those who streamed it. What is Halo Online? Is it shut down? Was it ever legal? Where does Halo go from here? We discuss all this and the upcoming Summer 2018 season updates.

Data Drop 80: HCS Preview and Playlist Perfection

We're a few days away from the 2018 Halo World Finals in Seattle. Let's take a look at the remaining two groups and make some predictions! Tom "Tsquard" Taylor stepping in it again. The Matchmaking Update shows that the competitive fans aren't the only ones keeping Halo alive. We take a look at the rotational playlists by hours played and find some rather surprising results on which lists are most popular (it's not H3 Classic BTW). I take a look at the latest rotational list, H2 BR, and tell you why I think it's the "Perfect" playlist.

Data Drop 79: Yap Wars 2 & HCS Preview

We're 2 weeks out from the HCS World Finals in Seattle. This week we go over the first two of the four groups for finals. Unfortunately we got ghosted by Caster Butters, but I make some predictions on who places where in each group. A lot of Halo Wars 2 stuff from this past week, including the Yappening playlist from the weekend. We take a look at some of the insanity that resulted. The return of Oddball to the Team Arena Playlist, and one classic playlist is traded for another. All that and more on this weeks edition of The Bad At Halo Show!

Data Drop 77: LATAM Recap and Loot Crate Review!

The set is a happenin' here in New Phoenix. We're breaking in all the bells and whistles for the live stream, but we haven't forgotten the podcast crew! This week we take a look at the stream of the LATAM Regional Qualifier. A bit of a surprise in the eventual winners. Some production problems from the crew at Gamelta made it a bit of a difficult watch and we go thru some of those issues. The Let's Get Tactical loot crate is out in the wild, and I take a moment to rate each of the items we got for this edition. And last and most certainly not least, a return of The Running Riot segment on suggestions that the Halo franchise needs to be more to a specific popular streamers liking.

Data Drop 75: HCS From The Land Down Under!

I finally finished Halo: Silentium...thank god I never have to read those books ever again! We review the latest round of Gamebattles 2K tournaments, and the EU had one too...why? I dunno! But they did. We also take a look at the top (sort of) 4 teams competing for the 2 ANZ region World's Spots! Hopefully my boy Mantis doesn't let me down with my prediction. We take a look at the fixes to the Halo 5 LAN app and how that's forcing the weapons tuning out early. I talk the Halo 3 Throwback list and that I love it. And there was MORE news about the Halo TV series (YAY)!
