Halo World Championship 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

On the 4th of Nov they announced it reached 1.5 and today the 19th they announced it was 1.7

 

So in 15 days we've gone up 200k

Not bad, and we can expect another big bump around xmas and then again with the hcs specific req packs.

I don't understand. Is the entirety of Season 3 just a leadup to the HWC?

 

No other LAN events at all?

 

*Edit*

Also shoutout to having 8 online events in a row again :\

 

Was just thinking about this. So many online events, they will be vital. So much money on the line.

 

Do we start seeing Team houses?

*Waits for the Sudds to announce they are moving to a different country to try to grab a HWC spot*

8 online events in a row are okay now that the game doesn't suck and its all on dedis

Oh mlg hasn't announced their stuff yet?

 

So essentially we could be seeing a pro league or big LAN events?

 

Also, no esl pro league I assume. Which is weird because aren't they doing one for gears?

If mlg does legit events I hope they don't have all the issues I've been seeing from them recently.

For those that didn't notice, according to the rules, Breakout now has shields. That should make it a little bit easier to watch for spectators.

Well that's oddly specific.

Probably trying to maintain the same kill times as before, but make it easier to understand from a viewer perspective.

Ayyy, no more 'locked in' garbage. Well, until you qualify for the HWC regional finals that is.

HCS Season 2 Finals Cloud 9 Stats

 

There interesting because alot of people see Hysteria as a big Slayer. He actually got the least kills and by far and away more obj

Good

 

 

Large prize pool will help with some hype (personally Ive never gave a crap about prize pools) with the tourney.
MLG back. They have their faults but them + work Halo creates buzz.

Multiple "wildcard" qualifiers.
Multiple partners involved

 

Bad

 

Lacking spectator details. Their big event is 4 months away and we still dont know where it, and the other regionals, are. Large crowds are becoming the norm now.

Lack of live events. Online only qualifiers with minimal LAN events (especially for NA) is a step back to even last years HCS.
Lack of consistent content, we will only see the very top teams in competition 2/3 weekends for the next 6 months (presuming they only need 1 qualifier)

Poor spectator mode ruins all the online viewing potential. Will they all be streamed?

 

I hope 343 are prepared for when foreign teams go to LAN events in different countries and they have VISA applications prepared.

Overall its good but the model seems to copying COD champs, a model that they ditched last year in favour of a more sustainable one.

Pretty underwhelming considering how long they waiting for announcements.

Frankly I would've been much more happy if they'd spread the money out through the qualifiers/regionals rather than just hoard it all for the HWC finals. $1,000 to win a qualifier? I won $250 playing in some bullshit tier-3 Gamebattles bracket back in 2008. And that's in NA.

I can only imagine that MLG will stream their Halo matches. Didn't they do that with CoD?

COD had a decent spec mode.
