“Halo 4” Global Championship Announced

343 Industries and Virgin Gaming reunite to launch the biggest ‘Halo 4’ tournament ever
with $500,000 in prizes

 

343 Industries, Xbox 360 and Virgin Gaming are teaming up again to launch the “Halo 4” Global Championship, a summer-long tournament that will give gamers around the world a chance to battle* for glory and win $500,000 in prizes, including a grand prize of $200,000.
Spanning multiple live events and five weeks of online competition on Xbox Live, the tournament is the biggest “Halo 4” competition yet, and will kick off at the Rooster Teeth Expo on July 5 and on Xbox Live on July 15. Competitors will test their skill and fortitude against one another in intense free-for-all matches over a series of qualifying rounds (based on average scores and elimination matches) for a chance to rise through the global leaderboards and win coveted prizes.
The tournament will culminate with a two-day Finals competition in Seattle, WA from Aug. 31 to Sept. 1, where players will battle to become the ultimate Spartan, with the top players receiving cash prizes.
Beginning today, players can register for the “Halo 4” Global Championship by visiting www.halo4globalchampionship.com and will be able to participate in two ways:
· Online Competition on Xbox Live. By registering through Virgin Gaming at www.halo4globalchampionship.com and selecting the custom tournament playlist in “Halo 4,” players will be able to join the competition for free on Xbox Live. Each week there will be a different free-for-all mode for players to enjoy.
To qualify for a chance to compete in the Finals, players will need to complete a minimum of 20 matches in the tournament playlist per week. At the end of each week the players with the top four average scores will be deemed winners and be eligible to compete in the Finals. Additionally, each week qualifying players will have a chance to randomly win** special prizes.
· Live Events. Players will also be able to join the tournament by participating in live competitions at the Rooster Teeth Expo in Austin, TX from July 5 to 7 and Gamescom in Cologne, Germany from Aug. 21 to 25. Six finalists from each of the live events and 20 from the online qualifiers will receive an expenses paid trip to participate in the Finals in Seattle, Washington.

So a confusing thing is that Major Nelson says you will be able to compete at Gamescon but there is nothing about it on Waypoint.

Interesting, you have to be 18 years old. There will be lots of kids pissed about this.

 

Also it sucks if you live in Quebec.

 you'll need to play a minimum of 20 matches to qualify. An average score will be determined across your 20 matches

 

 

We'll take the points you earn during the week, add them up, and then divide by the total number of matches you've played that week to calculate your average score

 

 

:bravo:

There are some crazy restrictions on this tournament, I couldn't believe it.

 

Online Tournament is open to everyone (excluding residents of AZ, CT, MD, TN, QUEBEC AND WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW) who have reached the age of 18 or the age of majority in the jurisdiction in which they reside. Online Tournament ends August 19th, 2013 at 9:59:59 UTC. Live Event Tournament is limited to registered Event attendees (excluding residents of AZ, CT, MD, TN, QUEBEC AND WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW).

 

Really? Why.

 

I'm eighteen so the age limit doesn't bother me, but that still cuts off a HUGE portion of the player base. Next, why is my state restricted? I live in Maryland, for what reason are these few states exempted. When is Maryland ever excluded from anything?

 

I'm happy that VG is finally doing something with the power that they have on this game, but little things like these are pretty irritating.

 

 

 

Could it be state laws getting in the way or something? Thats my best guess, its probably not their fault
