  1. Hi! For those outside of the Halo division who do not know me, I had been a member of it since March 2020, which was only about two months into its life. In January 2021 around when I became a Senior Officer, Zakspeeeed designated me to a Halo co-lead position with a primary focus on events. Outside of my IA from mid-May to late-June this year, I had been consistently active and supporting the Halo division, most notably but certainly not only with my hosting of a weekly Big Team Battle event/session almost every week since Thanksgiving week 2020. I had taken the IA to not only ensure I could get settled in with my first job in my field but also I had become very burnt out with OD for multiple reasons. In the middle of this past week, the burnt out feeling had returned to nearly full strength after having gradually built up again since admittingly shortly before I returned from IA. However, this time, I am not just burned out with OD. I am also burned out with being in a gaming clan in general. I know there’s still over 3 months until Halo Infinite launches, and I was planning to hold out until after hosting one last Big Team Battle session this upcoming Sunday to put in my resignation. However, due to what happened at today’s Big Team Battle session, I am just going to go ahead and resign now. I don’t hold a grudge against the person who BM’d me and I’m not mad at anyone, but I feel the time is right. I’m very sorry I couldn’t endure until Infinite’s release and that I didn’t really give any forewarning on my departure, but like myself and others said to Lightning at the beginning of the month when he resigned, I need to put the well-being of myself and my loved ones first. Gaming is something most people arguably do to have fun and unwind. Being in a gaming clan, even as the lowest rank member, has become no longer fun to me, and I don’t see that changing for a long time. Once I post this in #division-announcements, I will remove my roles on the Discord (decided on setting myself to Former OD Member instead of outright leaving the server, hopefully I do it right so no one has to fix it) and hand over control of Halo’s leadership chat by departing from that. That all said, I want to thank everyone who was or currently is in the Halo division, especially Geordie, JD, phoenix0fEmbers, PureSkooma, Raged, TimmyV, and Zakspeeeed, in addition to LightningWolves. Probably not all of them will see this, but I genuinely wouldn’t have gotten nowhere near as far as I have in the ranks were it not for their support and encouragement, and I learned a lot from the mentoring given to me by some of these individuals. More important to me than those two things, however, is for all the memories we made on The Master Chief Collection, Halo Wars, Killing Floor 2, and Golf With Your Friends to name a few. I will continue to treasure all the great times we had long after I close this chapter of my life. Perhaps we will cross paths again on the battlefield on MCC, Infinite, or something else one day. I hope I did enough on my part over the past 17 months to help ensure the Halo division goes into Infinite’s launch strong. I wish y’all the best and, as is the Halo-related motto on my Steam profile,... Deliver Hope -Jenkinns/Jenks
  2. Lightning, I very much respect you putting the well-being of yourself and your loved ones first, and I wish you all the best on this next chapter of your life. It was great working with/learning from you over this past year, and your Killing Floor 2 community events were good fun (especially that Survival Endless Hard one where we made it to Wave 62 over 5 hours). It has and continues to be nice getting to know you; I look forward to keeping in touch. 🙂

  5. Finally some gameplay with this Black Orcs Team Overview that just dropped today. The UI is a bit of a downgrade from Blood Bowl 2 for me, but it’s not a big deal. Plus, the art style is growing more and more on me. Hopefully they’ll be putting one of these videos out for each of the 11 other launch teams as well.

  13. I'm thinking a weekly shout out for hosters in general. Adding it to future Halo OD Info Roundups in the Events section right before the list of upcoming events would probably be one of if not the best ways to go about it. It wouldn't need to be anything more than something like "Looking to get into event hosting? Pop on over to #event-planning on the Discord. 😃".
  14. As I said in #event-planning earlier today, I see the value in having different event themes for different days of the week. @Geordie(OD), I do like which days you put the types of events which currently aren’t being hosted in your proposition. HOWEVER, I’d much rather it be a first come, first serve basis. If, for example, someone reaches out to start hosting Firefight events before others reach out to start hosting Infection, Halo Wars, 4v4/6v6 matchmaking, etc., and they want to host on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Saturday instead of Monday as well as make it a weekly thing, then why shouldn’t they be able to take advantage of taking the initiative before others? Plus, as I was just alluding to, some folks may not want to host on a weekly basis. The only days which have an event theme right now are Thursday (Campaign), Friday (Big Team Battle), and Sunday (MCC Customs). This is because they all currently have dedicated hosting by at least one individual on a weekly basis. Not saying it will, but if one of those days was to lose dedicated hosting on a weekly basis, then that day would clearly be open for a different event theme.
  15. Hello everyone! I want to start off by thanking those who voted on that types of events poll I put up last week in #division-announcements (18 people not including myself). I’ve been looking over the data from the results and there’s clearly a lot of interest in everything with the exception of FFA. There’s also been folks very recently expressing interest in Halo Wars MP, which, from hosting such an event last month on the Steam version (no crossplay with Windows Store/Game Pass version unfortunately), I’m pretty sure has around as much interest as Halo Wars Customs. If anyone is interested in getting into event hosting with either Halo Wars MP, 4v4, any of the other poll options, or something else Halo related, pop on over to #event-planning and we can discuss the deets and go from there. Remember, an event can be something as simple as a dedicated time frame to play matchmaking in a certain mode, as is the case with my BTB events. Also, for those curious, below is the breakdown of the poll results. One thing I noticed in particular is there’s a lot of overlap interest in 4v4 and Invasion/Squad Battle. Those being the modes the OD Halo Competitive Squad had specialized in back in the day, perhaps some among you are interested in bringing that squad back from the dead? If so, please reach out to @Larixal(OD) on Discord. Here's the link to that squad for your reference: https://www.overdosed.net/index.php?view=Squads&uid=314.
