God damn. That's impressive for anyone. Edit: There aught to be a (Get Off My Lawn) Medal, Skin and Emblem for registered boomers that achieve this.


MrJanglyness

I like this idea haha


Wanhade600

And im 21 losing to people in their 70a


drivermcgyver

*Presses F*


MrJanglyness

Come. Sit down. Now.. How does that make you feel?


ApolloHimself

Not fair, he had more time to practice


SlugmanTheBrave

this is actually accurate lol he has been exclusively playing the original version of halo ce on his old mac daily since it released in 2001. finally got him an upgraded machine so he can try the “new” ones!


plugifyable

What does he play? Are there still online servers?


SlugmanTheBrave

he was playing on a server called OTH (Over The Hill, meant for silver haired gamers). i don’t know more than that but it had a community!


plugifyable

That is absolutely sick the fact that’s even a thing.


Godz_Bane

yeah cool af that it exists in modern times, in 40 years itll be commonplace.


pro-jekt

That is fucking amazing I want to shake your dad's hand, he's a real one Also I want him let me play Mac OS Halo


SlugmanTheBrave

haha legit LOL out of me. kudos, he’d be honored


mxrider108

Ahh I remember the mac port of CE! Good times. I figured the servers for that are long gone though?


SlugmanTheBrave

it was/is all custom games but it is/was still active enough for him to play daily!


AceEvansVR

Not that it matters, but the Mac port didn't come out until the end of 2003. I'm guessing he was one of the many Bungie fans that played the Marathon games in the 90s on Mac who were then pissed when Halo came out exclusively on the Xbox in 2001. To make it worse, 2 years later it was even released on PC 3 months earlier than the Mac version 🤣 Anyway I hope I'm still going strong when I'm your dad's age.


SlugmanTheBrave

that all checks out! yes to all of the above, we’re both big marathon and Myth fans


Bandt143

I want to like, but it’s at 73 and that seems appropriate. Glad to know that it’s ok for me to keep playing into my 70s.


InitechSecurity

Wow.. send your dad our congratulations!!!


skatellites

wonder if he tbag+melee'd his winnings


ByAny

Man's over 70, he can teabag standing up.


SlugmanTheBrave

LOLOL


BTM65

LMFAO. good one.


johnny-Low-Five

I’m 39 and can attest that I’m much closer to that great moment in life than I was when CE launched!

SlugmanTheBrave

lol u WILL win that 1v1


OnlyOneReturn

Fuck his accuracy is better than mine bots or not


ALewdDoge

Seventy three and his back is still in good enough shape to carry people that hard, that's impressive


Paulius91

He actually got his stats recorded after the game? Damn lucky guy.


Szydlikj

Credit towards challenges? Green with envy


Kage__oni

With a frenzy and a +15 k/d, little sus for a first win. You sure he's not using wall hacks when you aren't looking?


SlugmanTheBrave

lol no but he is on mkb which honestly makes it more impressive


Kage__oni

You know, I play controller on pc. I guess I'm an odd one though because I play EVERY other shooter M&K. But for halo I just have to use bumper jumper or everything just feels wrong. I even tried going through campaign with m&k to force it, but it just feels wrong.


SlugmanTheBrave

yeah, part the way our brains are wired from playing them all that way originally and part the aim assist thang i think


Kage__oni

I think its just the muscle memory for me personally. It just doesn't FEEL like Halo without the controller to me.


mustykrusty89

You aren’t weird for using controller on pc, it’s what the pros are using. I use it, my homies use it. You’re good


Draig-dw-i

For me it is situational. For most weapons, I use controller because it just feels a lot better for me. However, for ranged weapons like the sniper or skewer, I use keyboard and mouse. The amount of kills I get with the skewer on keyboard is ridiculous.


mustykrusty89

So mid game, you are switching from controller to keyboard and mouse, depending on your load out?


Draig-dw-i

Honestly, yeah. Keep in mind, if I’m playing a normal game, 90% of the time I’m using a controller. But, if I am in the middle of something like BTB and there is a sniper rifle or a warthog, I can just switch to keyboard in a second. I mostly do it because they are both far more responsive and easy to use on keyboard than controller unlike most other weapons.


Kage__oni

It wouldn't be hard to do since you can literally just put the controller in your lap. I do that when I have to fly if I'm playing one of the older battlefields. I use m&k on foot but controller in vehicle.


johnny-Low-Five

Even if i learned and got as good with kbm as controller I agree certain games need to be played with controller. Halo and Gears jump out at me as good examples. Just the slightest little changes in my hands holding the controller makes each game feel just right. Titanfall is the only game I ever played with bumper jumper and I loved it but can’t break all the years of halo with (A) to jump.


Kage__oni

I made the switch to Bumper Jumper back at the launch of Halo 3. 10,000 games later anything else just feels wrong.


mcilrain

I used to play Halo Reach on 360 using mouse and keyboard using an adaptor. Not being able to aim just above people's heads to get headshots is the biggest difference not having aim assist (bullet magnetism in this case) makes. You could sometimes shoot people behind cover with it. SWAT was nasty.


_bosscrystal

i'm sure you've made some kids very upset


mcilrain

When I got put on an American server I did hear an American child complain about how accurately I was shooting but I'm not sure if he was blaming me or the game.


UJ95x

Pros use controller. The aim assist is OP.


ogrestomp

But I thought aim assist is off for pc regardless of controller? If that’s wrong someone please tell me, I want to switch over from mkb but I can’t compete against controller with aim assist on controller without.


UJ95x

Is it? My aim is considerably better playing with a controller 🤷


Thick-Quarter2783

Thats not how K/D works... Its a ratio. Ratios take one number and divide it by the other, not subtract. His k/d here is 21/6, or 3.5, which is not unheard of for inexperienced players


Kage__oni

I obviously meant he went +15 on his kill death spread lmfao. I never said his k/d ratio was a 15.0 Try working on that reading comprehension bud.


Thick-Quarter2783

I dont think I was being a dick in my comments, no need to be a dick. You put k / d .... kills / deaths .... 21 / 6. Its called k/d because it's literally kills divided by deaths, thats what the slash is for.


Thick-Quarter2783

The term for getting 15 more kills than deaths is +15. Because there's no such thing as a negative k/d since both k and d are always positive. You seem to have mixed two different terms into one... +15 k/d is not a thing. Either you're talking about their ratio in an fps (k/d) which is always positive, or you're talking about their spread, which could be +15 or -15 (that would be going 6 kills and 21 deaths) You should work on your comprehension. And not just reading, you dont seem to understand vernacular or math either.


Kage__oni

Wow guy it's almost like I said he was +15 and you chose to read it as a ratio. That's a you issue and if you had ANY reading comprehension the +15 obviously clues you in that i was talking about his k/d SPREAD. LMFAO.


Thick-Quarter2783

"+15 k/d" - you. Its ok to make mistakes.


Kage__oni

Yeah it wasn't a mistake lmfao. If I was talking about his ratio there wouldn't be a +15. But there is because I'm talking about his spread. Unless you can't do a simple 21-6, then it's incredibly obvious that was i referring to his spread. But you are thick and 3 quarters short of a buck so I'm not surprised that was difficult for you. It's obvious if we were discussing ratio I'd have said he had a 3.5 k/d ratio. But here you are.


Thick-Quarter2783

"If I was talking about his ratio there wouldn't be a +15" If you were talking about his SPREAD there shouldn't be a "k/d" in your sentence. If you were talking about his K/D there shouldn't be a +. You mixed the two things into one. And going 6 and 12 is a 0.5 k/d, not -12.


Kage__oni

And for the record yeah, you can have a negative k/d. If you go 6 and 12 you went -6k/d. Again the fact that you're reading / as a division symbol is a YOU problem. Context matters and you still need to work on your comprehension. Coming back the next day to make the same comment won't change that. Lol.


Thick-Quarter2783

Going 6 and 12 is a 0.5 /kd.


Kage__oni

K/d ratio sure. But not K/D spread which is what was mentioned and no amount of wailing from you will change that.


Thick-Quarter2783

Lmao you even got the spread wrong. Going 6 and 12 would be a -6 spread, not a -12 ☠☠☠😂😂😂


Thick-Quarter2783

Seems you need a calculator. Here ya go! https://www.omnicalculator.com/other/kd


30inDaClip

It was probably bots


SlugmanTheBrave

wasn’t


Viss90

He won with 21 kills?


[deleted]

I had a match where I was joint top with 18, it went into extra time and the other guy beat me 20-19


SlugmanTheBrave

the games have a time limit i believe


Viss90

Did people quit or something?


SlugmanTheBrave

don’t know man, proud either way


willyslicey

Lol this fucking guy


Viss90

Yeah lemme know when your next FFA ends at 21 kills with the leader getting a running riot.


Kneepsteegje

Big dog


IrishRepoMan

Handedly?


SlugmanTheBrave

yessir https://www.yourdictionary.com/handedly


IrishRepoMan

Ah, non-standard. It's a bit like saying irregardless, where people kept messing it up enough until it was just accepted (kinda...not really). It literally means just regardless. In this case the standard is 'handily', but it was likely one of those cases where it's confused with 'handedly' often enough that they just went with it.


SlugmanTheBrave

i’ll buy it


axjross

It’s likely handily, except wrong.


SlugmanTheBrave

okay https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/handedly


alucard9114

That accuracy and no power weapons nice!


DarkShaigo

That is quite impressive Cheers to your dad for his first dub


ecstatic_phlegmatic

Bro, this is honestly impressive. Did he play the previous Halo games too? Even if he did, bravo! Gives me hope for when I turn 70 hahaha


SlugmanTheBrave

yeah, he has been doing mcc multiplayer for a bit since he got this new pc.. he acclimated well!


MrJanglyness

wow congrats! That is awesome he is still playing and has been this whole time!


shilmista_

You get spirit awards cuz I don't have any but secretly they're for him.

BerithTasker

Dude please tell him I think he's cool as fuck 😂😄☺


BerithTasker

And with 41% accuracy, fucking boss


zitfarmer

. . . I quit! I fucking quit! (GG dad GG)


Ch3mlab

Absolute legend


Snark_Bark

Stop the cap


SlugmanTheBrave

super goofy that there are a few of y’all saying I’m making it up that he won… but I’ll bite. no it wasn’t bots, no it wasn’t a custom game. I’m an onyx player myself, I appreciate that the game’s hard. credit where credit’s due :) [here](https://ibb.co/b1rqjR9)’s another pic for the h8rs


ickies

Hey, add halodad on tik tok. I want to play with your pops.


Thick-Quarter2783

The term you seemed to be looking for was he went +15. The moment you put k/d, in English vernacular, you're referring to a kill death ratio. Otherwise you just say they went positive 15, or +15. Try working on yours ;)


DatClyde

No, no he didn't.


SlugmanTheBrave

nani?


30inDaClip

Sbmm came in super clutch for him
