Halo 4 Global Championship Discussion

Recommended Posts

The leaderboards are pretty crazy now, we know GrayishSelf3 is Ninja, we know who Wettimage is, but who are the other powerhouses? I feel like at least one of them is probably another pro on an alt. account. I heard somewhere that one of them is Formal.

 

formal is smalishlion currently 4th place

Quick question, do I have to play twenty games each week or twenty games overall? I'm not a fan of Infinity Rumble

Each week is separate, top 4 from each week advance. You don't have to play all weeks, but to qualify for a week you have to play at least 20 games.

Oh ok that clears things up, so I need only play the weeks I want to.

 

Correct?

Yes. If you don't want a chance to qualify for a certain week, or win one of those weekly prizes, don't play in that specific week. Each week is separate from each other.

LiL Talent created some space between the 1st and 2nd place spots.

 

Preschool is a officially out. He'll probably make a new account and go hard these next few days with a random GT.

Who did Preschool lose to?

No one that's known in particular. It looked like he tried to quit out before the game ended, but I think he was unaware of how many "quits" he had left and went over the limit.

So at the moment the top 4 is

 

1. Lil Talent (contra)

(2. Wettimage [possibly being DQed for cheating/underage according to ninja)

2. Ninja (GrayishShelf)

3. eL Town

4. SBB BlizZzz

 

Formal is close behind in 5th

4. Formal (SmallishLion)

I'm pretty sure SB Blizz is a Euorpean player. El Town is currently playing and has 1 quit left. He will probably surpass Ninja to take the 2nd spot, if not 1st.

He was out before it all started. Hes too young to compete. Hes going to keep playing under his tag.

 

Talent is putting on some good numbers, but crazy to see how it is all pros near the top

What the hell, according to the leaderboard, Formal (smallishlion) is in both 6th and 9th place. Wth is this?

 

EDIT: Misread hahaha.... someone made a new GT called Smallishlion866, instead of Smallishlion886 (which is Formal)

 

Anyone know who this is? I'm guessing Ola.

 

2nd EDIT: Now he seems to have lost.. Formal is still in it but the guy with the other tag has disappeared from leader board

I can almost guarantee he is.  I mean, he already won an expense paid trip before through GameBattles Bic Flex FFA Online Tournament in Reach.

Damn, i just realized Cyren either listened to my suggestion, or changed the OP on his own terms.  Funny seeing "Snip3down, goofy, strongside then....TOXICNATE FOOTEDPANDA DALE967."  No offense to those players, props to them for securing an invite!

 

Also, lol at the pros and other players using 2nd tags for the tourney. Read the rules and many of these players wouldn't of had to do that!

Irrelevant point to bring up then. El Town is probably not cheating, just typical Twitch trolls spreading rumours as always.

I knew that already, I'm just mentioning it anyways on the off chance that 343 overlooks his age.

If El Town is being called a cheater because he pulls host all the time then "yes" he's a cheater... Kappa. Other than that, El Town is playing legitimately.

At first I knocked the ranking system because once you lost a game you were out of the competition and there was no longer motivation to play.

 

But in hindsight, that is why it is brilliant. It makes the competition almost like gambling at casino. Risk vs reward. Creates a lot if tension for players and is fun as hell to watch. And the big thing I hadn't considered, if you loose a game, was that you can just create a second or third account and try again. And like gambling, these secondary accounts are like the buy in at a poker tournamant for the $500,000 purse.

Also this Global Challenge has made me realize how much I miss leaderboards. They add so much replayibility and addictiveness to a game. (Trials Evolution is a prime example)

 

Hopefully 343 learns a lot from this tournament an can apply these settings to the everyday playlists. It would be amazing to have these Global Challenge tournament matchmaking settings applied to similar competitive playlists like Throwdown. As well as a tournament style leaderboard and ranking system instead of just a CSR ladder.
