If they used base 7, then the number of bits of data is wrong. log(7)/log(2) ~ 2.807 (it's irrational, so the decimal expansion is infinite.) Which means it takes ~2.807 characters to make one bit. There's no code hidden in the names, trust me. They are, for all intents and purposes, just intended to be different accounts that look like they have the same name, using two characters that look alike.

Luke was wearing a t-shirt with the Super on it at MLG San Diego.

Is wearing a hat normally not fashionable anymore?


Try asking the guy in the middle in the above MLG pic. You might get an ass-kicking for your troubles, but some questions just need to be put on the table, no matter the cost.

From the Cold Storage ViDoc:

And in addition to the Superintendent symbol at the end, a phrase also comes up for a brief second.

This is one of the things that the SI says on B.net.

I can't imagine what part of the Halo universe that logo would fit into. I mean, the only Halo-y thing about it, is all the blue. PS Anyone had a close look at all the text in the background yet? I had a look for any hidden messages but all I found was "<subliminal message 01>" in the bottom left. The really pale, small text just seems to be the phrases we've heard before in different languages.

As Bungie's countdown to 7:07:07am PST Wednesday grows near, lots of Superintendent stuff is popping up. A thread on B.net contains some newly discovered wallpapers. And some are saying that they've seen the B.net logo that was previously flashing the word "Tru7h," now flashing the Superintendent logo, although I haven't seen it myself.

Via HBO, a man presumed to be an Ensemble employee was seen wearing a Superintendent sticker in a Halo Wars interview video (29 seconds in).

I am becoming more and more open to the idea that this may be Halo related.

That guy works for 1UP. Apparently he's called Matt Leone. Maybe he got the sticker from Luke, since he used to work at 1UP.

Well, the superintendent logo had to do with the E3 reveal that got shot in the heart by M$ right? It was part of the hype?

That hasn't been clearly stated. Mattrick confirmed that Bungie is working on a Halo game, but he didn't say for sure whether or not it and the Superintendent game were one and the same.

This is very mysterious indeed, I'm curious to see how i turns out. Has anyone considered asking a bungie employee about the superintendants yet?

Mendicant, give the community a little credit. There are trolls, er... I'm sorry, they're people too. There are people on the Bungie.net forums constantly asking what the Superintendent is.

That said, I'm not aware of any major gaming rag or community (such as this one) approaching them with an interview about it.

I've asked Bungie guys about the Superintendent and they won't really discuss it. For example, after the MLG event where they debuted Cold Storage, I asked Luke about his Superintendent shirt; he told me, "Yeah, I got that at Urban Outfitters. I liked the pattern. : )" They're playing this one pretty close to the vest.

I'm pretty sure the press has been told not to ask about it, and they've been told not to mention that they've been told not to ask about it.

I'm pretty sure you weren't supposed to mention that.
