Care to explain what in your opinion wasn't right back there? -- Necrontir

Regarding the Brute discussion[edit]

Where is it documented that they got into fist fights you ask? Almost every piece of Halo lore depicts that there was rivalry between the Elites and Brutes in the Covenant Empire, how do you not know this? I can't dig up the exact quote where they got into physical fights (I'm not going to dig through every Halo book to find it, but it is there). Read the article on Brutes and on Elites in this wiki and you will find evidence that there was rivalry and resentment towards each other when they were both in the Original Covenant Empire. Where is it documented that they hate each other since day 1? Almost every Halo story takes the chance it has to tell the player the relationship between Brutes and Elites.

  • -Halo 2, clearly showed they don't like each other and you don't even play a mission with brutes helping you. Not to mention the Brutes ate the Elite Councilors.
  • -ODST mentioned they don't like being around each other.
  • -Halo Headhunters mentioned they don't work together.
  • -Contact harvest mentioned that they have an ancient feud and don't like being around each other hence them being on different ships.

Seriously I list my sources, its not that hard to read.

Most importantly, you ask me, "when is it stated Doisac was attacked by Elites?" Here, read/watch Halo: The Return ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1kUy8MmBKY ) The Elites are currently genocidal killing off the Brutes, that is a canon fact. You are just not up to date with the Halo lore. Elites have gone to the Brute Homeworld in 2559 and are mopping up the brutes in an attempt to make them go exctinct? Why? Because they hate each other. Watch the video or read the book.

So yes, all my facts are correct, please re-respond once you have checked my sources and acknowledge that my facts are right. But really, all you need is to play and pay attention to Halo 2's story to understand the rivalry between the Brutes and Elites, its a critical part of the lore that you clearly missed. None of my arguments are flawed, you are just not aware of the Halo lore between the Brutes and Elites rivalry. If you had known this, you would know that if Jul or Elites can't make peace with the Arbiter's Swords of Sanghelios (A fellow brother species), or the Humans, they would never have the mindset to forgive the Brutes, their most hated enemy of all.—This unsigned comment was made by SpartanEdit0r (talkcontribs).

Re: Kamchatka[edit]

I was just thinking about that, and yes, I think we should make a page with that name. -- Topal the Pilot File:Blueteam.png|20px]] (Talk|Contribs) 05:15, 1 September 2015 (EDT)

Covenant drop pods[edit]

Why did you revert my edits? The drop pod seen in Halo 2: Anniversary is clearly a Squad Breaching Carapace, look at the details. It can't be an Individual Breaching Carapace. Imrane-117 (talk) 22:28, 22 December 2015 (EST)

It was first sighted during 2553, after the war. Alertfiend - Team Chief 22:29, 22 December 2015 (EST)

I was thinking the same thing (given that the Type-51 designation matches up perfectly with the Battle of Meridian), however, looking at it now, the one at Meridian does look like a Type-53. The designations were given by the UNSC when the item was properly documented, so maybe the UNSC didn't designate the Type-53 until 2553. The drop pod at Meridian seems to have landed after the UNSC was already forced out of the system, so it could make sense. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 22:35, 22 December 2015 (EST)
You're mixing up three things: date of manufacture (unknown), date of first sight (unknown), and date of categorization by the UNSC (2553). Covenant weaponry has to be used on the battlefield, before it's even given a name by the UNSC. Also, check Halo 4 The Essential Visual Guide, it says the UNSC has very little knowledge on Covenant drop pods used during the war, implying the pods in Halo 4 were not new and were used in the war (eg: during the Battle of Meridian, etc). Imrane-117 (talk) 22:41, 22 December 2015 (EST)
Why would the Covenant only deployed the drop pod during the battle of Meridian and the UNSC never encountered it in-between Meridian and Earth, unlikely. Also do we have an image of a Type-51 that is open? that could help. Alertfiend - Team Chief 23:44, 22 December 2015 (EST)
Probably best not to take UNSC cataloging too close to heart. Less I bring up the T-32 Ghost, T-33 fuel rod gun, T-33 Needler, T-47 Scarab, T-50 beam rifle, T-51 carbine, T-52 plasma cannon, T-53 plasma caster, T-55 Kraken, T-55 storm rifle and T-56 Lich.Sith Venator File:Mega Blastoise.gif|20px]] (Dank Memes) 23:53, 22 December 2015 (EST)
Just Googled for images of the drop pods that are open in Spartan ops and there is no images so I will concede in this matter, I hate not having Xbox Gold. Alertfiend - Team Chief 00:06, 23 December 2015 (EST)


Cerny[edit]

Halo: Glasslands, chapter seven : Monte Cassino’s executive officer, Cerny, gave her the impression that he felt personally responsible for arriving too late and that he was now busy overcompensating.

House of 'Sraom Edit[edit]

You recently reverted my edit back to the T-26 Banshee, which is slightly problematic. In the source he is stated to have flown the banshee, variant not stated. In warzone he flies the T-54. Would it not make sense to state that he is a banshee pilot, but redirect to the T-54? This would keep the lack of variant ambiguous, but still redirect to what he is shown to fly.24.192.250.124 13:04, 24 January 2016 (EST)

It has been stated that he was a pilot during the Covenant war, and it would be fair to assume he did not pilot the T-54, the T-54 is was just added (IU) because it was new. Alertfiend - Warning, my comments may appear passive aggressive. (Converse) 20:00, 24 January 2016 (EST)

While I seem to recall something like that, is there a source that actually states that he was a pilot in the Covenant War? I mean, it seems quite likely but sources are key. --NightHammer(talk)(contribs) 21:33, 24 January 2016 (EST)
it's just said that he's a banshee pilot ace, not mention of when (blooding years or Covenant war). Garuda 01 (talk) 12:01, 25 January 2016 (EST)

Re:"What?"[edit]

The script for the terminal Beholden describes the main elite as a "Spec. Ops Commander", hence my edit on the Special Operations Commander page. I wont argue about the revert, but I don't think my edit was misplaced. http://www.halopedia.org/Terminal/Halo_2:_Anniversary#Beholden

Please be more polite in your edit summaries[edit]

I know you have a disclaimer saying that your comments may seem passive aggressive, but that isn't an excuse for being rude.

And there are other instances with other users as well.

Editors, even when they don't do the best job, are trying to help the wiki as little or large as that may be. Please try and assume good faith. Thank you Editorguy (talk) 18:30, 19 July 2016 (EDT)

A bit of harmless sarcasm is fine now and then, imo, but make sure you aren't insulting users with edit summaries. Remember to keep it clean! --20:03, 19 July 2016 (EDT)
Justified in the preview button, because it is useful when you plan to make a large number of edits. I said "wtf" because at the time I though I added it there from my previous edit so it was directed at myself. Using caps in a summary is basically yelling, we had just received the information and it was unnecessary to make such a comment, I was simply farcing you. The last one is a question about the amount of detail and lack of categories/templates/navboxes that where added.
If I didn't assume good faith I would hound you all over the wiki and look over everything you do, which I don't because despite what you may think I think about you and know about you, I trust that you are willing to do what is best for the wiki.

Battle of Earth picture[edit]

Despite how it appears in the game, you can clearly see that Europe is oriented the wrong way. Shouldn't the image be flipped, as I had it? -Japeth555

Open up a discussion on the page's talk page if you want to replace the main picture. Alertfiend - Warning, my comments may appear passive aggressive. (Converse) 23:14, 26 July 2016 (EDT)

Regarding Edit Conflicts[edit]

As per the discussion in the above link, do try to avoid getting into edit conflicts with your fellow users. If your edit is undone (or you undo an undo), please use the talk page to sort out the issue. Thank you and have a nice day.--Spartacus TalkContribs 20:39, 19 August 2016 (EDT)

ONI[edit]

The kig-yar base thing is not something I've just made up. Honest. --Jarr (talk) 17:50, 7 February 2017 (EST)

I am well aware you are talking about Operation: WHISTLE STOP. Alertfiend - Warning, my comments may appear passive aggressive. (Converse) 17:50, 7 February 2017 (EST)

Well good, that means in terms of motive you can see the relationship. --Jarr (talk) 17:51, 7 February 2017 (EST)
