    Hey everyone,
    I just got this game, for the third time.
    I keep loosing/damaging the discs, it is so much fun online still.
    Just wondering if anyone here still plays.

    Halo: CE or 2?

    I haven't touched CE in a couple years, and I played 2 yesterday at the 360 tour on campus after a few months. I pwned everyone there.

    I used to play on Live everyday for about a year :p At one point I was in the top 200 players list on bungie.net. But now I don't have a Live account because of various reasons.

    It's hella fun, possibly the best multiplayer game ever.

    What's everyone's favorite playlist? I'm a double team fiend :)

    We play Halo at our LAN parties. Only issue is some use **coughpiratedcough** versions and had a few duplicate cd-key errors.

    Cheap bastards.

    Our next one has a legit copy mandatory. I'm not going though that hassle again.

    I love BTB, haven't played in a while though. Got a new account with my 360 and had some fun with noobs :p

    Cheating killed it for me, you get to 30+ and every game is modders.

    I've never liked BTB cause it's impossible to get 8 good players that are willing to coordinate, and its always laggy for me.

    That's why I love DT - just me and my awesome partner :)

    And the cheating in the game once you get 30+ is indeed ridiculous. :( There are ways around it but its too much of a hassle to set everything up. The highest I've been is 37 on DT.

    I used to play with the same set of 10-15 guys so we had some good teamwork, back in its hayday it was the best.

    Glitching the flag through the ramp on Waterworks was awesome, I still think there was only a handful of us that knew how to do it, people would get so pissed :D

    Funnily enough I just reinstalled Halo to find out what this Halo CE:2 thing is all about. I've now installed Halo CE so I can play modded maps but I've yet to find out much about this so-called Halo 2 mod. Is it just a collection of multiplayer maps or is it single player/a total conversion?

    Anyone played it?

    I think the CE mod is an attempt to make Halo 2 more like Halo 1 (in terms of weapons and stuff).

    When I was referring to CE, I meant Halo 1 for Xbox.

    What Combat Evolved? :)
    I thought that was what you meant.
    Now everyone seems to have disregarded that this is in PC Gaming :)
    But its all good, i like the conversation

    Ahh I think I see the confusion. Halo: CE for the PC is an unofficial "collectors edition" that can be used to play user-made maps. It's a silly name really as it obviously gets confused with the 'combat evolved' tag of the original version of the game!

    Halo CE for computer is Halo Custom Edition.
    It is the thing used to play all custom maps.
    Some people have it, i like the standard maps though :)

    Lol, no probs :)
    You were clost to what it means :)
    I dont think CE is even a bungie edition though, i think people made it after the fact.
