Q&A With BravoMLG!

This past weekend I sat down with BravoMLG to ask him your questions! He has made a great name for himself. He's a inspiration to all of us and he's going to give you a quick insight to his life. Check it out!

For those gamers who don't know you, who are you and how did you get involved with gaming?

My name is Andy, some people call me Bravo, and I like Halo. I've been involved in the pro Halo scene since 2005. I've competed, coached professional teams, won some tournaments, and now I'm creating YouTube content and commentating professional Halo. It is a lot of fun.

How has gaming changed you as a person? Was this change, if any, good or bad?

In a very real sense, gaming and my experiences through pro gaming have tough me a great deal about the world.  I've learned a ton about management, traveling, economics, business, and more.  I've had the privilege of working in a fast paced event-driven industry, worked with some huge international brands, and I've sort of grown up at the forefront of professional gaming.  It's very exciting and I'm proud to have worked as hard as I have.

You have a large following on Twitter, YouTube, and other social media outlets. What advise would you give to others who are looking to get their name out there?

Hm. In reality, you just need to capitalize on your strengths and strategically deliver them.  When I started coaching, I tried to become the best in the world of pro Halo.  When I was coaching the best pro Halo team, I started to make videos about our experiences.  I started really building my YouTube during Halo Reach's decline, and now I'm still creating content multiple times per week, if not every day.  I worked hard and tried to capitalize on every opportunity.  If you're an aspiring Halo player looking to make it big, all I can say is network. Meet people who want to go pro, and go for it together. The worst that happens is you gain some respect and have a ton of fun along the way.


How can we get free samples of Gamma Labs through you?

Just head to , fill out the form, write in that Bravo sent you, and boom, free energy drinks! It would mean a ton if you requested some - it's free, takes a few seconds, and shows my sponsor that people give a sh*t about me.

How many events do you attend a year and how to do mentally prepare for them?

I haven't missed an MLG event since 2006, so I attend around 8 competitive events total, including smaller events. Back when I was coaching, preparation was usually around 2 LANs before an event in Chicago, Seattle, or California. Lots of traveling, lots of Halo, and lots of red-eye flights to catch my 8:00am college classes.  It was rough, but awesome.  Mentally I just made sure I wasn't worried about anything besides winning the tournament. Listened to lots of music. Now that I'm commentating, it's a ton of research, studying streams / VoD / forums (RIP) and making sure I knew everything about everything.  Total events I attend (including industry events like E3, PAX, Comic-Con) will probably be around 15 this year. Next year I hope to attend both Gamescom (Germany) and the Tokyo Game Show!

As many people know, you coached many teams to victory on the Major League Gaming circuit. Can you tell us about your favorite event?

My favorite event would have to be Anaheim 2009, when Triggers Down was the first team to win back-to-back Halo 3 tournaments.  Winning that event was a pretty good feeling.

In the past month or so you have been to E3, RTX, and SDCC. What steps do you take to produce your content for YouTube?

Disregard other responsibilities, acquire Halo 4. Kidding, but I literally booked around $2000 worth of flights and visited friends in between all these events (something I wanted to do when I graduated anyway) and I just look for good, unique content.  I'm currently building a content calendar for Halo 4, pre-release and also once the game drops. We're only just getting started!

What are your thoughts about the E3 build of Halo 4?

Fun, it feels heavier than any other Halo, I've said enough about PV, snipe is cool - I like how hard it is to use, Needler was OP, AR was very weak.  Overall, I'd be pretty content if Halo 4 final was on the E3 build, but it's awesome to see some last-minute balancing.


Do you have a favorite loadout and if so, what is it?

Awesome question. If I had to pick one loadout and use it, it'd be:


How are the grenade physics in the E3 Build?

They felt.... weak, and not very bouncy. I'd assume they'll be changed somehow in the final. I spoke with a few other people who played and it was hard to tell when they hurt an opponent. Maybe that was all.

How easy is it to stick someone?

Difficulty level: somewhere in between H2 and H3.

Where do you see "Pro Gaming" in ten years?

Mainstream and televised. Who knows what games everyone will be playing. It won't be CoD, and it probably won't be Halo either.

From the E3 build you played, what gametype did you enjoy the most?

Infinity FFA, cause I dropped a 73-29 bomb :)

What videos should we check out from your YouTube channel and will we be seeing more new Halo 4 content in the near future?

Let's see - I just uploaded a montage from Comic-Con, and here's a Halo 4 gameplay commentary!

Do you have any shout outs or plugs?

Big shout out to you, Implicit, for being the man, and everyone who watches my YouTube vids, thank you. Also, my sponsors - SONY Mobile and Gamma Labs. Lastly, if you haven't, check out my YouTube and Twitter, both are /BravoMLG!

Thanks for having me and I cannot wait for H4!


Thank you for the Q&A Bravo, we look forward to seeing more exciting content from you in the near future! Make sure you check out his Youtube and show him some love! If you have someone you would like me to do a Q&A with, post a comment below, tweet me @ImplicitMLG or email me

Elites' epicness - Community showcase

I'm starting something new and I want to see how this goes for a week or so. I'm going to showcase diffenrent post, vlogs, gameplays and more from the community. Want to see your stuff up here? Tweet me and tell me all about what you're wanting to showcase!

This Community Showcase is from @ "I was messing around with the "No Weapons" gametype and realized when you try and melee your Elite does something different, so I found a great backdrop and posed in front of it to try and capture the Elites' epicness."

Halo 4 Flag Comic-Con 2012

343 is in full force at Comic-Con San Diego! The Halo 4 Panel(above) shares some great new information on the new game!

RTX 2012 - Austin, Texas

RTX also known as Rooster Teeth Expo is a weekend event hosted by Rooster Teeth in Austin, Texas. RTX 2012 was their second and needless to say, it was a huge success. With the attendance well over 4,000, Rooster Teeth seems to be headed in the right direction.

Halo 4 at RTX!

343 Studios sent their elite team to showcase their E3 Build of their new game, Halo 4. This was the first time the general public had the opportunity to delve into the multiplayer. For many attendees this was the first stop on the list for the weekend. While waiting in the agonizing two hour line that seemed to last for days, you couldn't help but ask yourself a few questions.  

What guns am I going to use?
Does this feel like Halo?
How does sprint play a role in Halo?
Who's going to be my first kill?

No matter how many questions you ask yourself, you will never be prepared for your first match of Halo 4. The game will take you by surprise and blow your expectations out of the water. When you get into your first BR(Battle Rifle) battle and you see your hit markers light up just before your opponents lifeless spartan falls to the ground, you know Halo is back! With the addition of the hit markers, you never have to question if you shots are hitting again. Some people say this is to similar to CoD but I beg to differ. While CoD may have hit markers, there have been many other games before its time with this feature. Without question 343 Studies has really done a great job on the game thus far.

Halo 4 has been given a massive overhaul. The team is giving the community and fans the much needed upgraded we have all been asking for. This is only the E3 Build that was showcased at RTX so expect there to be changes. 
Pregame Lobby(E3 Build) - Boys vs Girls
Spartan Customization(E3 Build) - Boys vs Girls
Saturday I had the pleasure of playing on the main stage with my good friend Bravo against the girls. We were showcasing the new snow map Longbow. While it was a bit big for a 5v5 it played really well. The vehicles feel very balanced, easy to use and they look great.

Here is a quick snap shot(right) of the new user friendly pregame lobby before we started our match.

This is the armor and color combination I used for the game(left). The possibilities seem endless with what 343 has shown us in the E3 build.

While this match was all out of good fun, we gave the crowd and online viewers a good show.

Overall the game looks and feels like Halo but with some major upgrades! I can happily say I'll be getting the game when it comes out.
