Halo MCC Monopolized Achievement
Posted: Posted January 10th by Vandy

I've been working on this achievement for the past few months on and off. Got it last night.



Here are the times:



Most say that Gravemind is the toughest. But for me it was Regret. That awful time on Regret was actually just a rough run through to get the hang of the level. I decided it was maybe okay enough to squeak by if I could save enough time on other levels. I did Gravemind two times back to back and shaved two minutes off of my Outskirts time before I considered going back to do better on Regret. Which I never had to do, thankfully.

Once you get past the first section of Gravemind in a decent amount of time, the rest of the level really isn't that bad. Even the lift section where you have to free the marines. My first try got me 38 minutes. My second try got me the time listed above, 29 minutes. I lost about 5 minutes in the final section.

In its totality, it was more difficult than speedrunning Halo CE. I unlocked goat roped before even speedrunning The Maw with my original playthrough time being enough to get me under 3 hours.

Does the 3 hours have to be from starting with the first mission to the last mission in one sitting? Or can you play each mission and have the over all times add up to less than 3 hours?

I believe it's the total time has to be less than 3 hours.

Nice job! I also strive for achievements and I know that once I start MCC it will take forever to complete it. Some end up taking me a long time to finish.

It's total cumulative time. So you can always go back and try to get a better time.

@Fox Forever MCC 600 achievements. I think I have 337. :|

How active is the MCC multiplayer? I heard even when it was released that it was hard to get matches and there wasn't a lot of people.

"I heard even when it was released that it was hard to get matches and there wasn't a lot of people."

It had alot of people playing it, the problem was the matchmaking was broken, I mean very broken. I was such a big deal that the president of 343 had to apologize for it. It's since been fixed, and there are a decent amount playing it I think. ut not like there were when it first came out in 2014.

Certain playlists are well-enough populated, such as BTB, Team Slayer, and a few others that you can get into a match usually without much trouble. Some of the less-populated playlists can be impossible though.

Also a big problem in the game is that it goes to a vote between 3 maps of different games and Halo 3 almost always wins. So you end up playing Halo 3 the whole time. Hopefull that gets addressed in the updates coming to MCC this year.

Monopolized


I remember when MCC first came out and I was talking in MrMonopoli's stream about how cool it was that he got an achievement named after him. It's so weird to think that someone younger than me is world-class at something that I care about.

Yeah I think all of the speedrun achievements are named after record holders. Goat Roped from goatrope for instance.

I think the same often about sports stars and musical talents being younger than me. I think about how it never seems to take long for athletes to fall out of their prime. And I'm in the same boat. :[

I have 214 achievements unlocked. I need to go back and get some more.

Yes. Goatrope, Monopoli, DarkDevastation and ProAceJoker.

That reminds me about the Nak3d Eli incident. 343 named the achievement Naked Tyrant after him, then Microsoft banned his gamertag because it had the term "naked" in it. What a fucking farce.

Shit, really? That's super tame compared to a lot of the names that I've seen.

I had a person on my friend's list who had the name "Rapelli" and they made him change his name because it had "Rape" in it even though Rapelli was his middle name (weird name though I know). Nobody has that name now.
