    Time Flies

    Hello again everyone! As you may or may not have noticed, there was no update last week. The stars and planets alligned in such a way that it left our writing team occupied with events in the mysterious realm known as I.R.L. We have successfully made it back though and this week we're delivering a wide variety of content. Kick back and relax. Let's get started!

    The Will of The People

    The Alliance Testing Network is looking to hear your opinions on Extermination. They wish to make improvements, changes and they even want to bring new modes to the new community favorite mode. Contribute to the process on their open forum thread here.

    Everyday more and more awesome content gets created and it’s amazing what the community can do! Let’s take some time to highlight some of the latest and greatest from the past week.

    Fissure by N3gat1veZer0

    This Guardian inspired 4v4 map is sure to knock your socks off. Zero taps into some Halo 3 nostalgia in this map, all while crafting a layout and map that has one of the best CTF supports this author has ever seen in Halo 5. This is one well worth the bookmark. Check it out!

    The Matrix by JoeSubbi

    One of the most iconic scenes from The Matrix series makes an appearance in Halo in JoeSubbi's newest Fat Kid style map. Most people are familiar with the classic Halo custom game but now it takes a new twist as you make your way through the bank scene from The Matrix.

    Lone-A-Home by Mr YEIYN343
    If you're a sucker for attention to detail then you'll love this 70's themed house by YEITN343. This puppy comes outfitted with all the bells and whistles of a home from the era. Vibrant artwork, pale colored walls, carpets with gross designs and even an easter egg or two. A trip back in time is just a bookmark away.

    Ragnahalla 2 by HerrMittmann

    HerMittmann's remix of Viking by no god anywhere is sure to turn heads. This stunning BTB classic makes a return in this awesome thematic swap. Everything from the base geometry, the cool active scripting and the quality geography work makes this map feel like a true Halo classic reborn in Halo 5's style.
