This is not the second largest Halo event in history - not even close actually. Maybe you mis-worded and meant within the last few years. This is attendance numbers up to mid 2017.

The chart I posted is LANs only. Moses' tweet is referring strictly to HCS events. The Halo Championship Series began in 2014. Halo history long precedes the HCS.

... yes, that's the point ... Or was OP referring to ALL MLG events, not just halo events?

All good mate, I'm not that worried about it. Still don't think the OP comparison is good though. If we're comparing to events that are also this era on XB1 (not just Halo) then I guess it's fair. 

Still, people are pretty determined to dump on this event. I get that we do that on here but would be nice to see that hype for H3 carry over into support for the TOs or at least constructive criticism.

“HCS history” is technically correct but his tweet is misleading and is making things seem bigger than they actually are. It’s a good showing for classic Halo, but MLG routinely (and easily) moved 256 passes in a few hour timespan in the 2007-2010 or so era.

 

Basically Halo Esports has never been back to where we were 10 years ago, even with million+ prizepools. 

 

Kind of sucks bexause most people who were around during the h3 days as teenagers are almost 30 now, and probably can’t commit to practicing / competing and newer generation of players (H4, H5) expect advanced movement and if you throw them into a game like Halo 3 they will be eaten alive.

Back to back 3-0 sweeps for REC. They looked kind of tense yesterday, but Instinct has fully warmed up.

GMS got humbled. Rec is on fire right now and Lux is flaming as well. Should be a great matchup.

Okay so just trying to make sense here because we aren't on the same wavelength here. You said:

Not a great comparison. Remember this is the second largest event in Halo history—89 teams. With a bracket this large there's only so much UGC can do, and when (not if) errors or issues pop up, they have huge ripple effects. 

So you're claiming this is the second largest event in halo history. This chart shows that isn't even close.

You made the accusation that this includes online events which it does not. Also moses's tweet is talking about HCS events specifically.

So I am not sure I understand.  Are you saying that MLG events are not halo events or are you specifically referring to HCS when you say "halo event"?
