I’ve written about this far to much to get into it once again, so I’ll leave you with the short version.
HIH has been my home for nearly 5 years now. It’s the reason that I got into tricking, and the main reason why I am still browsing Halo forums to this day. The community of that place is unrivaled, and is the only reason why I know of some of the great people that I think of as my friends, even though our interactions extend only as far as that which the internet can provide.
It’s a sad day for me to see the site finally come to a close; but I am grateful that I was able to be a part of such a great community.
I’m not that great at ‘goodbyes’, so I figured I’d throw together a quick video; so that I may leave the site with my final contribution.
(On a slightly more nostalgic note, it was an interesting feeling to see some of the first footage I ever collected, well before DWT existed, in the HIH MP tribute up on Waypoint. (I filmed the “player’s view” segment of HX2T’s ‘How to Drive a Warthog’ (HIH MP @ 1:57 - 2:06))
