I live in Havre de Grace man, not sure if Elkton is also in Harford County, but we should game. I know of a couple centers in our area, and if you know of any I'll hit you up.

Hey guys! Just reporting in from the DC Halo event. About 30 people showed up, we played mostly v4 settings the whole night, and had a pretty hefty prize pool considering there is no entry fee. there were 4 main prizes up including an the new 360 E with Kinect, a set of Astro A50's, a Razer Sabertooth controller, and 2 other headsets (Turtle Beaches, maybe?). Also, the top 10 players received 1600 MSP, but I don't expect that to be a regular thing. Very cool of the store to do that though.

 

The map was Onyx FFA with title updated weapons. You could choose between the 4 primary rifles as starting weapons and maybe the AR was a choice. I can't remember since everyone used the BR anyway. Standard ordinances with Thruster/Hardlight/Hologram were used. Next one is in 2 weeks on July 19th, I believe. The prize pool is subject to change at each event and they don't pre-announce them, but they usually come through.

 

EDIT: Forgot to mention that they actually streamed this one! VOD can be found here: http://www.twitch.tv/dchalo/b/426306409

Getting back into the competitive scene, haven't felt like traveling to events for H4, looking forward to playing at the DCHalo Lans that are literally down the street from me.

 

Haven't played much H4, been living in the past and wrecking kids on H3..last MLG event attended was Raleigh 2011..feel free to hit me up to run anything.

Hey Everyone,

I'm the person who is in charge of running D.C. Halo. My apologies that it's taken me so long to finally start posting on here! After reading up on some feedback on the D.C. Halo Summer Throwdown FFA Circuit, I figured I'd answer some questions and clear up anything about my events that you may be skeptical about:

- Settings used for these events are indeed the V4 settings, but with a twist. What we've done was take the V4 FFA settings and add the following loadouts. These loadouts were implemented in order to help bridge the gap between both the Competitive Halo Community and the Casual Halo fans who'd want to compete in local events. While it's been a constant struggle trying to figure out how to do so, I found that implementing these loadouts keep the casual gamers interested, while giving the Competitive Gamers what they want with a BR Loadout and V4 settings.

 

Loadout 1
Starting Weapon: DMR
Secondary Weapon: None
Armor Abilities: None
Tactical Mod: Resupply
Support Mod: Explosives

Loadout 2
Starting Weapon: BR
Secondary Weapon: None
Armor Abilities: None
Tactical Mod: Resupply
Support Mod: Explosives

Loadout 3
Starting Weapon: Light Rifle
Secondary Weapon: None
Armor Abilities: None
Tactical Mod: Resupply
Support Mod: Explosives

Loadout 4
Starting Weapon: Carbine
Secondary Weapon: None
Armor Abilities: None
Tactical Mod: Resupply
Support Mod: Explosives

Loadout 5
Starting Weapon: Assault Rifle
Secondary Weapon: None
Armor Abilities: None
Tactical Mod: Resupply
Support Mod: Explosives

 

- V4 Onyx is the map that we're using exclusively for this Summer Throwdown Circuit. After a few events, I've realized that this is the most balanced FFA map available to us (And because Skyline is a DLC, unfortunately it's out of our budget and is out of the question).

 

- The Summer Throwdown Grand Championships will be taking place on August 16th at the Microsoft Store in Tyson's Corner Center. This is definitely an event that I've worked hard to prepare for and therefore am very excited about hosting! Boasting a pool of over $1,000 worth of prizes, I can say with great certainty that this will be the largest Halo 4 tournament that the DMV has ever seen before. Check out our Facebook page to find details about how you can qualify to compete in this event.

 

- Each event will be live streamed on twitch.tv/dchalo

 

Again, our next Summer Throwdown Open Event (#5) is taking place on August 2nd. This will be your LAST opportunity to qualify for the Grand Championships (August 16th). For more information on how to pre-register for this event, check out our Facebook Page!

Initially, you had to qualify by accumulating points D.C. Halo points from past FFA events. Because we're now accepting 40 competitors as opposed to the original 32, we've decided to open up the event to anybody who's interested in checking out what we can offer in an event!
