B.net down.

I'm really not sure if it means anything, but I just thought I'd mark this as a point of reference.

:arrow: At the time of this post, bungie.net was down. Presumeably for maintenance.

Probably trivial, but any break from the norm piques my curiosity, personally.

you see this

you blame stosh?

Re: Weekly Update Message 2

Specifically the "boundary complex" sounds like one of the walls seen here on the Ark (the same structure appears in the terminal image here ) I don't believe I've studied the terminals as well as I should, but I'm inclined to agree about that message being in reference to the Ark. What I...

Re: Weekly Update Message 2

I still don't think "[delta site]" refers to Delta Halo, or that [kappa site] indicates that there's a Kappa Halo. REPORT: CONTAINMENT FAILURE LF.Xx.3273 research and containment facility; [delta site] has experienced catastrophic specimen containment failure. All apertures into facility ...

Re: Weekly Update Message? [General Discussion]

You brought up a big hole in the timeline that I've wondered about sometimes, and that is, how did the Forerunners have time to build the rings if the Flood was nagging them. I've tended to assume that the time between first finding the flood nd building the rings wasn't that long. They were really...

Re: Weekly Update Message? [General Discussion]

Well, IMO, each theory is as valid as the next. Bottom line for me though: the Ringworld installations could have either been originally constructed strictly as either population centers, research facilities, or rather hazardously, a combination of the two. True, 343GS mentioned something about Inst...

Re: Weekly Update Message? [General Discussion]

Well, the original purpose of the rings in unknown. Whether they were built specifically as "Swords" is unknown. Its not all that important of a detail anyway, in my opinion. Indeed. I'm pretty much just speculating wildly. (Rampantly?) Sry. :roll: Anyways, true, it would be of little con...

Re: Weekly Update Message? [General Discussion]

Oh, well ok then ;) Anyway, I just thought I'd take a sec and ask whether we know for certain it was really the entire Ark and Ringworld system that was constructed near the end of the outbreak war, or just the firing mechanisms... Maybe I'm just not quite as up on my reading, but I've always though...

Re: Weekly Update Message? [General Discussion]

Even if they did, what could they add? And would we want them to? I wouldn't. Halo 3 ended the story better than I could have imagined. I don't want to ruin that by opening it back up again.Why can't stories just stay concise and clearly structured like they did back in the day? Star Wars is an exa...
