Im looking for a few great Halo fans to help here at HFFL!

Want to be a part of a Halo Community? Want to help make it grow? HaloFanForLife.com could use your help.

I’m looking for:

  • Talented video editors (Youtube) to help make videos for HFFL. These would include gameplay, news, reviews, and more.
  • Are you a writer? I’m looking for at least two people to write articles for HFFL. Specifically, I need someone who is heavily in tune with Halo eSports. If selected, you would be responsible covering all of the Halo Championship series tournaments. This doesn’t mean you need to go to them. Rather, you would need to post up to date brackets, commentaries on pro gameplay and such. As well, if there are any major roster changes for the popular pro teams you would be expected to report on that. Again, this will require someone who knows the pro scene well, not just someone who is casually interested.
  • Forge specialist. This position will require a person with extensive knowledge of Halo’s Forge.
  • Web Design. Specifically, I’m looking for someone who can design a great Forum. As I don’t want to have to pay for another site, you will need to be versed in how to build Forums using some form of free forum service. Continue reading

Warzone Turbo is back! (Through May 4th)

Via a tweet from 343:

I’m already done with weapons commendations, so this won’t help there. However, it’s a good chance to get some vehicle commendations done. I just wish being boarded wasn’t so easy in Halo 5….that is beyond frustrating.

Still, looks like I’m going Phaeton and Mantis hunting!

HCS European Pro League Details Revealed

This is a reblog from Halo Waypoint:

Just a few short weeks ago, the top competitive Halo teams from around the world took the stage at the Halo World Championship in Hollywood, CA looking to call themselves the best Halo players on Earth. While the entire tournament was rife with unpredictable upsets and shocking comebacks, in the end there would be no doubt as Counter Logic Gaming saved perhaps their most dominant display for when the stakes were at their highest, dominating Allegiance in the finals to take the crown.

Fan Made Pillar of Autumn made from Mega Bloks!

I saw this via twitter and knew I had to share this. Pics are unedited and used with permission by Dylan (and Tyler) Crossman the builder of the model. Any text added after this is his description, unless of course I use my “HFFL:” tag for it.

Hey guys i’m back with a MONSTER custom-Pillar of Autumn, this time, made out of 90% Mega bloks (10% was from the 2 big thruster I have to craft in cardboard and bucket

Pillar of Autumn was one of most well known ship in halo history and it also had one of the most important role. Back in 2014, Timmega made a poll on what signature series should they made, PoA was one of them but lost to a scarab by 100 votes and it got either 200-300 votes
Pillar of Autumn was one of the ship that I’ve been Waiting for from at least Goodwill Hunter and Carbon from Spartan bloks but since I never seen it from them, I went to give it a try
That build became the biggest, Best,harddest,most fragile, most challenging build me and Tyler (Halo Zone 24/ Zelot2468 ) ever accomplished
It took me 3 attempt to final made it (1 last year, 1 at 1 month ago and one about 3-4 weeks ago) When I made the 1st attempt, I lost interest and move on to Heavy Cruiser. 2nd time I got frustrated because it kept tipping over and crash. At my 3rd time, I decide to split to 5 parts and make it where I have to be connected by 2 clip-on pegs on sets like warthog and it WORK (Like others said:3 times the charm)

WARNING: THERE’S ALOT OF PIC FROM HERE DOWN

Halo Community Update3: Control Freak

This is a reblog from Halo Waypoint:

BY B IS FOR BRAVO

Hello, friends. We’re off to PAX East for the weekend, but stopping by with a quick blog this week. Across the studio, teams are hard at work on the Memories of Reach release, including updates to UI and matchmaking, new Forge goodness, sandbox balance, new armors and weapons, and more. Today, we’ll talk a bit about some new advanced controller options on the way, the new Super Fiesta social playlist, Waypoint File Browser, and other tidbits. Let’s get to it.

Last weekend, you eliminated over 147 million enemies over the course of hundreds of thousands of matches in the Warzone Firefight Beta. You have left the Warzone team with thousands of feedback posts as well as a multitude of data points that are undergoing analysis. Since the beta, the design team has been reviewing your feedback on difficulty, rounds, and objectives, and actively planning updates to the mode. Here’s a quick bit from David Ellis: Continue reading

HFFL: Man, I REALLY want these! 

Welcome back, ye stalwarts of story! Last week we set the table(top) with a hefty helping of universe-building goodness – including a full announce of Halo: Ground Command from Spartan Games and 343 Industries – as well as an inside look into the very cool Sins of the Prophets community creation. If you want to see more of what Spartan Games had on hand to showcase at the Salute 2016 show in the UK last weekend, be sure to check out this show floor recap from Beasts of War with one of the Halo: Ground Command game designers, Spartan Games’ own Derek Sinclair. There’s some pretty awesome glimpses of what’s in store for Halo tabletop fans in the near future, so definitely give it a look!  As we let last week’s efforts digest, this week will offer a lighter – but always tasty – portion of fiction-focused treats. Shall we begin? Continue reading

Halo Waypoint File Browser is HERE!

We’ve been asking for this from launch. Now we finally get a file browser. While not totally what we want, it’s a step in the right direction. The following is a reblog from Halo Waypoint:
