HFFL Spartan Company Commendations as of 6-7-16

We’re getting much closer to unlocking the Achilles Armor!

The graphic below shows our Spartan Company Commendation progress as of this writing (6-7-16). I took the liberty adding the bigger numbers to highlight where we’re at and which one we need to focus on.

The level 3 commendations are the most important to get to the next level as that means we will have unlocked the Achilles armor.

HFFL’s Halo 5 Guardians Spartan Company!

With the recent announcement of Spartan Companies for Halo 5 Guardians, you just had to know that I would set one up for HFFL.

So here’s a little about the official HFFL company…

Special Halo 2 Themed HFFL Community Night tonight! 11/7/14

Tonight to usher in the Halo Master Chief Collection, HFFL will be holding a special Halo 2 themed Community Night. We’ll be playing on maps in halo 4 that have been dutifully made to look like Halo 2 maps.

I’ll have as close to Halo 2 settings as possible. While it won’t be the exact thing, it will be somewhat close. This is in part to get you prepared for the maps and again a way to honor the upcoming release of the HMCC!

Start time is 8 pm EST. I have this planned for 3 hours, however, if people want to continue on past that, I’m all for it!

I hope to see you there!!!

HFFL Community Night starts at 8pm EST tonight!

Tonight starting at 8pm EST, is the HFFL Community Night. We’ll start off with some of the newly revealed racing maps from the Community Forge playlist. Then move to other customs. From there we’ll go into matchmaking. The playlist we go into will be determined by the amount of people we have in the group. We run tip about midnight. If people still want to game, we continue on gaming.

This is a great opportunity if you’ve not played with the HFFL community to get in a game night with us. If you’re looking for a fun casually/competitive community, this could be the one for you. We play to win, and have fun doing so.

If you want to join in tonight, send me a message over XBOX Live and let me know. My gamer tag is: HaloFanForLife1 Let me know you saw this article on the blog.

I look forward to having some fun tonight and hope you’ll join me and the rest of the HFFL crew.

2nd Annual HFFL LANstravaganza update: Prizes

HFFL 2014 LAN logo

Yesterday, I received a small box from Mega Brands (makers of Halo Mega Bloks). Inside were a couple of prizes as well as the following 2014 convention exclusive figures.

HFFL convention giveaway

I was a little perplexed why I received Call of Duty figs since this is a Halo only site. I contacted Mega and they said the CoD figs were sent by mistake and that they’ll try to get out more of the Halo figs to me. SO for now I have 15 each of the Halo and CoD 2014 exclusive figs. I’m sure some of the fellas coming to the LAN would like to have the CoD fig. Whatever is left, I’ll give away, though not on this site. I’ll post details of that after the LAN.

2nd Annual HFFL LANstravaganza Schedule of events

HFFL 2014 LAN logo

Okay folks, were two weeks out from the LAN. So I figured this would be a good time to post what the schedule of will be. Before I start that, let me state a few things. Photos will be taken throughout. By coming to the LAN, you consent to have your photo taken without reimbursement in any form. Photos will be used for Blog purposes, such as the LAN recap and possibly as part of background images for the Blog’s home page.

Alcohol is bring your own. You MUST be 21 with a valid license to bring and drink on the premises. NO exceptions. If I feel you are unfit to drive, you are NOT to drive. Rather you will be instructed to call someone to get you, be that friend, family or taxi. (Cost to yourself, not HFFL). This is a family type gathering, so please behave as such. Remember, I have to continue to live here after everyone else leaves. Bad behavior will not be tolerated. Be forewarned that we have police as neighbors. Again, act respectfully. Okay, on with the schedule:

Smoking is not permitted on the property. There will be a receptacle just outside of the property fence for you to smoke by and dispose of your cigarette butts. (I have breathing problems, so please be mindful and respectful of that, thanks.)

No one is permitted to come to the LAN without paying full admission. This is due to the need to cover the equipment and food/beverages cost, as well as the cost for some of the prizes. Continue reading

2nd Anniversary HFFL LANstravaganza update.

I will be a special guest on Podcast Evolved tomorrow. They stream live starting at 6pm. twitch.tv/podcast_evolved.
