Salty has inspired me to come out and voice my distaste for the CC's. These are things I have thought since halo 4, and with time they only become more apparent. Lets start with the post by @Psychoduck in response to salty when he brought up concerns that maps not submitted to the 2v2 contest wouldn't be considered for matchmaking, and I quote "Obviously the goal is to get the best maps possible, and if that includes pulling some that weren't submitted to the contest, then that's what we'll do. The contest saw a ton of fantastic maps and it's unlikely that there are many others out there that are on the same level as the top maps from the contest, but we're open to seeing them. Perhaps sharing a list of these maps you're referring to would be more constructive than complaining about something which hasn't happened yet." How would any of us know that? Forgetting about the fact that duck replied like he was talking to an insubordinate child (a common trend among CC's) would it be so crazy to assume that because you guys didn't tell anyone about the playlist you were focusing on getting maps from the contest exclusively? Of course not. You people act as if we have access to all the same information as you do and because of that we are being ridiculous when we voice our concerns or seem skeptical. This is the reason we want to be filled in! So we don't have to be jackasses! Let us move on. I honestly believe that there is only 1 CC with the community in his heart. I gaurantee you can guess who I am referring to, which says enough. Let me explain further anyways. Warholic has done an AMAZING job helping out this community. He has started so many good things that have come to fruition. He is constantly in testing lobbies and posting on Forgehub. He is one of the only CC's who doesn't act like an entitled douche, and he is generally very receptive to feedback. Let's contrast this to literally every other CC but Nokyard and Ducain. The age of Duck and Fated started in halo 4, and has grown exponentially in douchiness ever since. I'm not going to go into more detail on this subject, but just let me say that every forger I have asked agrees with me outside of the people trying to get "in" with the CC's (i.e. martianmallcop, squally dabeanz etc.) Fated also started in forging in halo 4 and became a cc in halo 4. He didn't make ****, he wasn't a visionary, he simply sucked ducks **** harder than anyone else. These "community" cartographers post about once a month on the biggest forging website, and I NEVER see them in parties outside of their clique. Not only that, but they are generally very standoffish when it comes to feedback (see above qote). Maybe I'm naive, but I truly believe that the CC's should be working for the community, not coasting on the wind of status like they have been for the past 4 years. This brings me back to Warholic, the only redeeming factor in this whole shitstorm. I'm sure he is gonna come to defend the other CC's, or maybe just disregard this post in disgust, but I felt that I needed to voice my opinions while there is still someone who thinks critically in power. Anyways, congrats on your secured positions at microsoft. At least we are one step closer to understanding why (some of you) seem to be so complacent towards the community. Maybe you were just looking at the big picture! I really shouldn't care this much, but It's hard not to get pissed off when I see this kind of ****. I have already been losing my passion for level design because of the awful game that is halo 5, so I just don't care anymore if you guy think I'm a ****. It's worth having my opinions and observations out there. I have one more map I want to finish and test, but then I'm Audi 5000. P.S Trump 2016 P.P.S. Chunk is a generous God.
