VA Beach LAN 2018 + Halo CE Tournament: May 24th - 28th

Recommended Posts

Next Thursday my semi-annual VA Beach LAN will be starting.  There will be a 2v2 tourney with the FFA round on Friday (which will include a final round this time) and bracket play on Saturday.  Both Hard Way and Knighty Knight will be attending so I'm sure there will be plenty of great commentary for those viewing the stream.  There will be two stations that are capable of streaming so we shouldn't have too much down time for those people watching.  Also we will have a pre-release build of Halo 1: NHE v1.0 on all xboxes so it can get some testing before the final release..  It will include several new maps that have been made over the past couple of months.

I didn't realize NHE 1.0 had more maps than previous NHE versions. Are you planning to use more of them for the tournament, or will it mostly be Downrush still?

 

I'm excited to tune in, I'll be missing Saturday night sadly but hopefully I can catch a lot of the stream.

The tourney will be played only on the main 7 maps (HH, Priz, Dammy, Dere, DR, Creek, Chilly).  The winner's bracket matches will be best of 3 games played on the main 7 maps (in order).  Loser's bracket matches will be best of 3 (each team vetoes 2 maps).  Winner's finals, and if necessary the grand finals, will be best of 5 (each team vetoes 1 map).

Darn, still hoping for a 1v1 CE tournament to watch, but I guess FFA is a step in the right direction.

why no map striking / vetoes in winners bracket

 

Winner's bracket finals has map striking / vetoes.  But yeah I'm doing it like this for two reasons. 1- I want the tourney to go as fast as possible. 2- I want all seven maps to be played.

I wish I could cast a 3 day tournament the size of an MLG open. That was freaking blast. I really enjoyed calling @@Riddler (oh4)/Knighty vs Meg/DDS in WBR2 as well. It went to game 3 and was super entertaining, and I’m proud of my call on that one.

 

The FFA was a blast as well.

 

And casting with Knighty is something I’ve wanted to do for years, and it didn’t disappoint. He’s a great guy, and it was a thrill to cast this tournament with him.

 

Geez, what an awesome freakin LAN...

Big thanks to everyone that came out, those who casted, and also those who donated.  Can't wait til Beach LAN 7.
