HCS Pro League Summer 2016 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

Recommended Posts

we seriously need an "actual HCS Pro League Teams, Seeds, and Discussion" thread ... condensing the actual intel from each day.  I honestly don't have time to read through half-assed memes and silly discussion (sorry everyone).  I thought about starting this thread but figured it would get locked, maybe TB staff ...?  It would just need to be one post a day, simple.  

 

 

edit: I think the issue is that the Halo 5 Discussion Thread has been garbage for months and there's nowhere else for people to hang out?  I dunno.  

 

I love this thread, I love reading all the posts and the silliness, but it's a fine line. I completely agree that there should be a "serious" thread for people that don't frequent the forums. "Frequent" here meaning 1+ hours a day.

"Note: All qualification will take place on the same map / game type rotation as the Halo World Championship 2016 Finals."

 

So are they going to qualify with the same rules/maps as the HWC and then change them for the Pro League? Or is this basically confirmation that we are going to be watching the same game types for the whole league? This does not bode well for those who are hoping for any significant weapon tuning or changes imo.

Reading the pro league info on halo.gg it sounds like they plan to change gametypes. I'm guessing qualifiers will he season 1 gametypes because of time reasons.

Really??? That is stupid. I genuinely had no idea how it was distributed, I assumed all 8 would get paid! If the prize pool is 250000 it shouldn't be hard to distribute that between 8 teams lol...

"Additionally, 343 Industries’ HCS team is working with ESL on bracket formats, options for a picks and bans system, a newly updated focus and feedback group in the form of the HCS Council (including working with this group on updates to maps, game types, formats, and more), as well as exciting new opportunities such as in-game esports skins. There’s lots more in the works, so stay tuned. "

 

Whos on the "HCS Council"?

800>0, especially considering what the overall prize pool is now. The idea that only the top 4 get paid is outrageous to me.

Right, I saw that the prize pool is for top 4 only but why restrict it to that? These are probably the best 32 Halo players in the world, I don't see why the prize pool couldn't cover all 8 teams. I think a stabilized check for the 2 months you're in pro league + payout from season finals would do a lot to alleviate the players' current concerns.

 

 

Yeah but you still have to factor in Relegation. Top 6 maybe but there still should be a reward/exclusivity to being at the very top.

 

Hence why Salaries + Top 4/6 payout for Playoffs would be cool.
