The Templin Institute : Attention Institute Staff! Did you know we have a Discord? Want to yell at Larissa and Marc in person?! Go here:

Spacedock : "You ever serve on a space-time ship all out in space? I was on one for years, but can't ever remember the name. I mean, how come we got such complicating ship-time names. Every time you make intel in a battle, the ship's probably blowed up by the time you finish, like "Sir, they're firing missiles pew pew pew at the CSS Pinnacle of Shadowy Gumption and—oh, yup too late! It's explodeded! Don't worry, here comes the Unyielding Double—pew never mind!" Gotta give ships littler names like Murder, Flip, or Bob! That's way safer!" - The Wisest Grunt Ever.

Lonewolfxx7 : Favorite thing about this video is the fact they use all the covenant names and not "Grunt, elite or brute"

Gerardo Reyes : The covenant is so interesting and cool. Templin institute you guys are amazing. Keep doing this awesome content.

Jimmy Seaver : Nice touch with having the _Infinity_ accentuate your point on how Mankind was poised to dominate the Galaxy.

Silenced Games : Can you do a video on the forerunners?

Arturo Reyes Cortez : The Covenant is basically what would happen if you mix Scientology, radical Islam, Medieval Catholicism, American Evangelism, advanced alien technology that they barely understand, and a lot of racism. Humans may have less advanced technology to fight back, but they made their own technology and have a military that doesn't require blind faith to continue fighting.

Alexandre Arrivé : *Time was your ally human, but now it has abandoned you. The Forerunners have returned.* What a game! Halo is amongst the greatest gaming franchise ever in my heart, the image of the Pelicans dropping through the atmosphere, with the music, oh man. Yet another great episode, continuez ainsi, Institut Templin !

Brandon Dinh : Wort wort wort

Silenced Games : Video starts at 0:00 you’re welcome

Moon Seal : Sangheili Major: "Brute ships. Staggered line! Shipmaster, they outnumber us, three-to-one!" Shipmaster Rtas 'Vadum: "Then it is an even fight."

Centurian128 : "When we joined the Covenant, we took an Oath!" "According to our station! All without exception!" "On the blood of our fathers... on the blood of our sons, we swore to uphold the Covenant!" "Even to our dying breath!" "Those who would break this oath are Heretics... Worthy of neither pity, nor mercy! Even now, They use our Lord's creations to broadcast their lies!" "We shall grind them into dust!" "And continue our march to glorious salvation!"

TheConquistador : *Remember Reach!* Never Forget!

Fulgrim2 : Any hope for a video on S.H.I.E.L.D. at some point?

Silenced Games : I love you guys!

SomeDudeOnaCouch : "But these are my elites, their lives matter to me yours does not." "That makes two of us." "Mmhh.." The original trilogy has so many quotable moments it's insane. Bungies writing was top tier back in the day.

LtCWest : UNSC Infinity plowing through a Covenant cruiser will never get old. ^^ Its actually kind of ironic, if the Covenant hadnt attacked humanity, we would have ripped ourselves appart in petty civil wars and conflicts. All the prophets had to to was to wait, maybe 10 years after the date of first contact, the Insuraction would have gained enough tracktion to openly oppose the UNSC. But the Prophets became greedy and paid the price for it...

Martin Conway : No mention of the Banished? Impossible! The Archives must be Incomplete!

beta wave : Wort Wort Wort.

Pyroskies : Considering how the Covenant referred to humanity as being a hellish race with ODSTs being considered imps and Spartans viewed as demons, I do wonder if any marines, ODST, or even Spartans took to play on the Covenant fears and made there armor look more demonic? Would make for a great story in Halo.

Avalanche : Humanity fought longer and harder than any species the Covenant had ever encountered. It was both the largest and most technologically advanced non-Covenant species they had met, and after 27 years of endless war they still held on to their homeworld. No wonder the Elites got pissed with the Prophets. They respect honour and strength, so after 27 years of genocide against a species that had long ago ticked all the boxes for Covenant citizenship they were really having a hard time justifying more losses. Throw in some civil war action and the breaking of the entire Covenant religion and... BAM. No more Covenant. Great video!

Erndem Sterff Prederctions : I AM TRUUUTH. THE VOICE OF THE COVENANT.

Clems First : Could you do SCP next pls ?(Secure Contain Protect) Amazing job with the video as always. This video seems to be way better than all the others.The voice acting was practicly perfect.

Darth Vader : AAHHH

Edgy Dad : "Were not gonna allow those alien bastards to take this giant metal hoola hoop!"

David James Ferguson : *Loud orchestra music*

Arcane_Rogue : Video on the C.O.G from Gears of War?

Alexander Ward : Please do *The Guild Of Calamitous Intent* from The Venture Brothers

My Hentai Girl : Hurray Even though i never even touch a Halo games, still interested in video game lore

SinDawg030 : “Who would doubt the Prophets? What have we foretold that has not yet come to pass?”

isaac navarro : I love the intensity of this narrator's voice. It makes the video engaging and feel as if she is reporting on actual events instead of lore.

The Imperial Propaganda broadcast : *Foaming at the mouth and shaking uncontrollably* SOOOOOOOOOOOO! MUUUUUUUUUUUUCCH! HERESY!

Covenant Canon : By the Prophets, this is by far your guy’s best video to date! As a Covenant nerd, you guys were on point with every detail! Utter perfection! Keep up the good work Templin. Covenant Canon supports your channel!

Gaming Dude : I sometimes wonder how the UNSC would have fared if the Covenant had been fighting a conventional war against humanity (merely trying to incorporate them into the Covenant, not commit genocide)

Josh Powell-Morris : “When you first saw Halo, were you blinded by its majesty?” “Blinded?” “Paralysed? Dumbstruck?”

Rinsablesnowy : Goddamn I can’t believe it’s been so long since I played halo

RubikPanda : Been looking forward to a video on the Covenant! Any chance of a video on the Earth Kingdom from Avatar: The Last Airbender?

Upmost animal 82 : Fire up the glassing beams!

Big D : if they came to hear me beg, they will be disappointed.

A05 ODST : "All who walk the blessed path will find salvation, even in death. Out of darkness, these blades will light our way. Glory and honor guide our ascension. On the blood of our fathers, on the blood of our sons. The true devotee honors our name with actions, not words. Victory is secured not from the throne, but from the frontlines. With this sacrament of blood we journey into the divine beyond."

Thomas Veerman : Oh man, this is a big one EDIT: after watching, one of my favourite videos from you. Would love to see one on the forerunners or even one of the smaller factions like the Insurrectionists, ONI or the Abiding Truth.

Mecha-san : Well, that ending sounded ominous. Until ONI has been given more oversight, I’m not that faithful in humanity.

Centurian128 : Wow, in 17 minutes of watching this it went from 27 likes to 242. I'd say you've gained quite the following.

The Sangheili : Blarg Honk

DrakeMarvell : Just remember.....#HumanityFirst

Daimon X : Remember REACH. Never forget! Never Forgive!

Tory Allen : To think Bungie had one masterminded this story. Now they make stories about how to buy loot boxes.

Jailbot Mark 1 : Reminder that glassing is mainly a psychological weapon and it would take even the covenant a ridiculous amount of time to completely glass a planet, but ONI concealed this and even sabotaged planetary evacuations to uphold the boogeyman that was glassing

Dark_ShadowYT -Handygames und mehr- : The true leader was YapYap the DESTROYER
