What? XBL is down, meaning they  can't play games because as far as I know they still need a live connection.

the confusion for me was they said they would play the matches offstream. But to play the game you need xbl. so it didn't make sense that it wouldn't be streamed but could still be played

Added in today's schedule and adjusted for team names. Not sure how much longer I can keep updating today, depends how much I have to work this weekend. I'll see if I can make separate posts for the 2v2s if enough info is released and I have time.

I get changing team name for sponsorships, but changing team names otherwise is annoying.

We have a RGB eSports and a RBL eSports? Let's hope they don't face each other...

Been hyped for this since he announced it  on his stream. Don't really expect much from him given he's only been back recently and has been mostly playing MCC, but should be fun to watch my favorite Halo pro of all time get back at it.

Wish Walshy and Puckett were around to commentate one of his matches for nostalgia's sake. IT'S CALLED TEAMWORK HOTSHY!

Original info post with updated stream schedule HERE.

Cool to see people like Twin Savior and Amish Acorns return.

Wish RBL eSports had a match on main stage. EU's top team vs. NA is a fun storyline and their placement in with Lux and Goldmembers makes their group the toughest to get out of (and I think second place out of the group has to play TOX first round of Upper Bracket).

Seeing Amish Acorns grown up without his bowl cut is just flat out strange. What a time to be alive

When I saw gab on lux w/o fantasy i just assumed fantasy just didnt go to this event. I only just realized hes playing on another team. Its weird not seeing them together.

@Noodle @Proto, don’t miss the first match. We’re starting off with Zyos’ POV in about 20 minutes.

Against Nacho/gazzo. Ouch, that's a tough round one, right? But I guess any matchup would be tough given there are only 12 teams.

I can't stand listening to anymore analysis/random talk. Just show gameplay. Why does it take so long to go from series to series?

I love how he is able to smoothly transition from analysis to play-by-play when speaking. I think it pairs well with @throoper, the two bounce off each other and take turns switching roles pretty well with RyaNoob cover lots of talk time so throoper doesn't have to speak past his point or awkwardly jump into the play-by-play when something exciting happens while the other caster is saying something analytical.

Not sure why UGC decided to change things up for the 2v2 CE from last event, but they should have stuck with those guys running it (if they were will to of course).  
 

Last time there was a PoV for both teams, timers for all weapons/power ups, and they had correct graphics on the screen.  

Feels like UGC  sort of threw it together this time just so they could say it was streamed.

I believe the CE stream from the last event was run by a production company/team involved with Hi-Rez Studios, the company Gandhi works for. He of course also casted that event and I'm fairly certain he had a good amount of involvement in terms of having Hi-Rez produce the stream. They did a really great job as you said with the overlay - providing timers for weapons and powerups
