hoping I can get off of work and car pool down.

 

for those interested in watching I'm pretty sure our stream quality/layout will be a bit better than most of the other CE streams.

Looks like the list was already updated, but I'm able to go!

 

I will try to post a few updates regarding the tournament when I'm there.

@ The stream is configured a little differently this time.  For dual screen view (4 players) the audio for each screen is split between the left and right channels.  In other words, the left screen's audio will only be in the left speaker/ear piece and the same goes for the right screen's audio.  So if the stream is on dual screens, you can take the headset off of whatever ear that corresponds to the side you're not watching.  Just FYI :)

That sounds like some next level tech

@ There is only one mic per tv so it's more like listen to red team player 1 & 2 in the left earpiece and blue team player 1 & 2 in the right.  But yeah it's an option for those who are overwhelmed by the 4 screens going on all at once.

You should be able to mute one channel in the speaker settings on your computer.

Also I will be putting everything up on YouTube which will include 3 vids for each match. One of each screen and one of the stream.

We've been live btw, tournament is supposed to start tomorrow at 1pm. Still don't think many teams are formed as of now but

Poon and Jownz
Meg and Devilman
Gazzo and Myself

The whole set up here is legit in every aspect. Lots of space, amazing accommodations with plenty of stations. Stream stations are using some sort of CRT Monitors or something that look amazing and crisp. Haven't played on them yet though.

Tune in and let me know what you think. In all honesty this is the level of production I hope to strive for for BL6.

Tournaments over boys...

Jownz & Poonmaster beat Missingno & ixqlk 3-0 in the winners bracket finals.

1st Jownz & Poon
2nd Missingno & ixqlk
3rd Devilman & Meg
4th Klown & Wraith

Top 6 - Finny & C2 + Mudbone & BRB.


We'll be LANning all Weekend long, so be sure to stop back by. Hope you guys enjoyed the tournament portion! Was surprised how fast we went through it all honestly.

For the record, Devilman hosts these about twice a year but this is the first tournament. Massive props to him for numerous reasons, but it's amazing to see this level of production for Halo CE. He has a set up for two POV's, webcams and mics which in my opinion is a must have. He has it so one teams sound comes through one channel on the stream and the other team on the opposite channel. He also has a compressor for when Jownz and Wraith get on stream and yell. I'll be sure to try and locate that legendary series post it here. A commentary station set up, and webcams that show both rooms.

No problem! Always nice to be able and go back and check what went down in a tournament.

were currently playing some sweaty LAN 4v4's right now.

We capped like 3 or 4 last night and are about to play more. I think last nights was on stream but these will be uploaded later. Kinda funny to watch such serious try hard halo CE 4's in 2017

We knew you'd be tuning in. The last picture has two people shirtless. We would have asked 4 people to be shirtless for you but we know the quad POV can be overwhelming so we just limited it to two shirtless players per day.

In the video for the finals there was mention in the chat of xlan and a discord channel to find games. Does anyone have links to these?
