Halo 5: Guardians is available now!

Hello, and welcome to the HaloSLAENT Official Thread. Here, many like minded people gather to play, talk about, and hate on the number one game on Xbox, Halo. We are still relatively young, having migrated over from NeoGAF once the thread we had over there was closed up, but we're loyal to our new home.

Why Are We Here?
Halo has always been a great game to sit down with some friends and have a great time. Now, 14 years since the release of Halo Combat Evolved, it is a billion dollar franchise with a huge competitive scene and spans multiple mediums and platforms. We here on HaloSLAENT regularly get together and have weekly Throwdowns hosted by our own xCliQuEx. If you'd like to add your name to our list of people who don't suck, make sure you throw your name into this OneDrive hat we have here for ya: http://1drv.ms/1WntVyq

Reporting For Duty, Cap'in!
343 was kind enough to design a clan system for Halo 5: Guardians called "Spartan Companies". Each company allows up to 100 members as of launch and has no in-game counterpart, making it more of a super secret special club for you and 99 of your best Halo buds. HaloSLAENT was fast on the draw, thanks to the original founder, Ukumio, and we sit high and mighty on the front page of the results, but incase that's not easy enough for you to find, I've conveniently linked the original HaloSLAENT Spartan Company right here for you. You're welcome.

The FNG; The Rookie
This is important to us, especially now with Halo 5: Guardians right around the corner. We'd appreciate it if you'd take this time to fill one of these bad boys out. Shouldn't take long, and you don't have to be super specific, and I recommend you don't be. Keep it short and sweet, and we may read it after all.

Expanded Community
The Halo community is massive, and while most of us here like to think that we're the only ones in the world, we're definitely not. Places like Halo Waypoint, Halo.Bungie.Org, Team Beyond, Customs Night, and many more are all great places to meet and group up with Halo players of every kind. Be it Campaign loyalists, or Competitive tryhards, you can find any player you want on these sites, so make sure you check it out.

GetREQ'dclaimer Scrubs
While those other guys are great, no one beats the homegrown taste of Halo nerds. ReclaimerHub is a group of nerds who like to talk about Halo, so we got together and started a podcast called Reclaimer Radio, then in March of 2015 we rebranded ourselves as ReclaimerHub and began producing content in multiple forms such as write-ups, videos for youtube and more on the website. Check us out @ReclaimerHub on Twitter, at ReclaimerHub.com, and Youtube.com/ReclaimerHub.

Help! Help!
