  1. I do know something about ESL's business strategy. If Microsoft goes to ESL tomorrow and says "Hey our budget is $20,000 now," ESL will say "okay" and make a league that costs them $15,000 to run. ESL works with companies with much smaller budgets than Microsoft.
  2. I'm just here to play devil's advocate. I have no information really but it's much more fun to make bold predictions and try to rationalize them. That's what forums are for. I hope MLG does Halo again and I hope it's open bracket and I can get all my friends together again like that CoD commercial haha.
  3. I don't know anything about how MLG operates but it seems like maybe you have that extra bandwidth as you're preparing for OWL. Maybe you can do Gears and get some extra revenue there and maybe that can even continue once OWL launches. But HCS is another big commitment that ATVI probably doesn't want to be tied down with when their company's bottom line is riding on their huge investment in OWL. IDK. Maybe they will just hire people if it's really a sweet deal.
  4. I just came here to say MLG will never host another Halo tournament. Stop pretending. MLG Call of Duty Overwatch Heroes of the Storm Hearthstone Halo One of these things is not like the others, boys. I miss the good ol' days as much as anyone but I'm not sitting around trying to fool myself into thinking the impossible is possible. How desperate for cash would ATVI have to be to allocate MLG resources to a white label production of HCS when they have so much riding on Overwatch esports. Not to mention CoD. Even if MSFT is offering an insane amount of money, ATVI needs to focus their resources on their own products now more than ever, and I'm sure they would happily watch Halo putter out with ESL. Sundance is a great guy but he has tweeted misleading bullshit about potential MLG titles since forever. Don't buy in. EDIT: Honestly I don't know how involved MLG will be with Gears in 2018 but it's not the same lift as HCS. If they were to take on HCS on top of everything, they would be stretched very thin. I just don't see it happening.
  5. Haha I'm not too upset, I know it's in good hands
  6. I want it back dude! Awesome site, hope to get involved with the forum. Small introduction: Michigan guy living in Germany. Ex-MLG event staff, now ESL staff in Cologne. Halo 2 is the best game of all time. I had Totz on my friends list once.
