HCS Pro League Summer 2017 Teams, Seeds, and Discussion‏

I think Tashi just forgot that he said that MLG were going to put a halo event after worlds.. I posted the tweet here got over 100 upvotes so pretty much everyone here was pretty pumped for it.

 

I asked him again, he didn't respond, I asked someone else... Then I realized, 343 hasn't even got proper e-sports staff....

WTF is happening to competitive halo

 

I wouldn't hold his word to it since it's an open ended response - like yea it's possible they can work with MLG but doesn't mean it's happening.

The game is 2 years old, why would they care about their esports advertisement league.

He said he was open to working with MLG, not that an MLG event was confirmed.

I doubt 343 will work with MLG until Halo 6 or H3A (Which ever comes first) since MLG is currently in full force with the CWL OWL and Gears as of right now. With H5 being almost 2 years old, it wouldn't surprise me if they wait till the next game to host a tournament, or even better, a Halo Pro-Circuit like they are doing with Gears. 

 

But maybe we could be surprised

Since H5 Ladders are currently being hosted by Gamebattles, that could possibly of been what he meant by working with MLG?

 

I sure hope not.

FFA tournaments, yes.

 

Actual Team Ladders with HCS Settings were released in mid-May of this year.

I wonder if there are any competent online/LAN tournament organizers out there with past experience of running Halo events that could step in and alleviate the issues that have been plaguing the Halo community for the past 5 years...

That response he gave seemed like he was blowing smoke to save face.

 

It seems clear 343 is against working with MLG.

Unless 343 is throwing a shit load of money at MLG I don't really see what else they stand to gain by hosting Halo events at this point unless its a deal that includes future Halo titles. The games viewership and retention etc is in the garbage. If they'd allowed MLG to be around from the start so that they actually benefited through the exposure and allowed them to be the long term Halo TO it makes a lot more sense than "Hey wanna run events for my game now that nobody cares about it?"

I've been gone all weekend and my service isn't so good here in VA. Is there anything happening at this moment for the HCS on stream? Sounds like an am qualifier through millennial? Sorry if it's been mentioned a million times before, but I've been out of the loop and can't catch up on the pages easily.

Week 1 pro league player stats

I really like these graphics/pages/whatever. It kind of gives you a cool picture of things like the general pace that OpTic is playing at and how Victory/Trippey played Strongholds
