Halo: A Legendary Series

Halo: A Legendary Series
Published by: forahobby on Monday, August 16, 2021
Tagged: Gaming,

If Nintendo has Mario, and PlayStation has Uncharted, then the most iconic game of the Xbox platform must be Halo. This was a game that would eventually become known as the definitive first-person shooter and many of those that exist today can thank Halo for their success. The first two installments of the game garnered a massive following and many praised their gameplay, music, and story. When the third and arguably best installment was released in 2007, it was grasped by a world in love with Halo, and even then, it managed to defy expectations and become one of the best games of all time.


Halo: A Legendary Series

As Halo is the standout game from the Xbox line-up, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to pump as much money into the series as possible. This is arguably what allowed the series to keep evolving and get better every year. The multiplayer of Halo is what sold the game for many though and many gamers should have fond memories of playing through the campaign of these games at their best friend’s house. This was the golden era of gaming and the use of split-screen in games was high as there was no Xbox Live to play against people online. Now that online gaming is a massive feature in most games, the split-screen feature has dwindled, meaning the future generations will not get to experience some of the amazing moments that come with gaming side by side with a friend.

In the US, Halo 3 sits as the best-selling Halo game of all time, and for good reason too. It concludes the epic story set in motion by the first game and many consider it to be the last great Halo game. Halo 3 saw the creators of the franchise, Bungie, depart from their IP to work on Destiny, a looter shooter that has its roots in the Halo engine. This allowed 343 Industries to take up the mantle, but every installment since has been met with a lukewarm reception. Many believe that Halo is inherently Bungie at heart, and much of the qualities that make the original games great are not present in the newest editions. This looks set to change though, as 343 Industries are preparing to release their newest, and perhaps last installment of the game.

DreamHack Halo Series 2019: What Do We Know?

DreamHack Halo Series 2019: What Do We Know?
Published by: forahobby on Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Tagged: Gaming, Xbox One,

November 15th – 17th are the dates every Halo fan needs to be entering into their diary this month, with DreamHack’s ever-popular Halo Series set to launch in Atlanta, Georgia that weekend. As part of the full eSports convention taking place across the same duration, the Halo tournament is one that Xbox fans can’t miss. The three-day event is a huge celebration of everything to do with gaming, all under one roof and while, of course, the plentiful events and activities are sure to keep people busy, it’s the MCC: Halo Series that we’re particularly keen for. But what is this year’s tournament set to bring? We’ve got the lowdown.

Dreamhack Halo Series

How Do You Qualify?

While qualifying has already taken place for this year’s tournament, the process alone is worth a look-in all the same. Seedings for the Halo Series are based on four different categories – Players from DreamHack Dallas, the Atlantic City Qualifiers, the Atlantic City Event and the Atlanta Qualifiers which took place on the 19th and 26th October, and the 2nd November. An online UGC Qualifier also introduced 12 teams into the second stage of the tournament (Pool Play) directly, without play in the Open Bracket. Esports betting sites are already setting the odds to determine the likely winner and with a $50,000 prize pool right at their fingertips, the pressure is on for the players.

The Schedule

As with every Halo Series tournament, the schedule will be split into three different stages, with an additional side event for those that weren’t able to secure their place in the main event pools. The MCC Halo 3: 4v4 stages are split up as follows:

Open Bracket

The Open Bracket is the place to be for those wanting to work their way up to the next stages – or at least if they haven’t already earned a slot based on UGC qualifying. This stage hosts up to 64 teams, as well as a double elimination bracket, and must win Best of Five matches in order to advance. Only the top four teams will make it to the Pool Play, while those that place 5-8 are put into the Elimination Bracket in the Championships Bracket.

Pool Play

This is the second stage of the tournament, in which 12 seeded teams from UGC qualifiers and the four winning teams from the Open Bracket compete. As before, all matches will be in a Best of Five format, with teams split into groups of four teams. This year’s pools are as follows:

  • Pool A – Tox Gaming, Reign, PBG Esports

  • Pool B – Lux Gaming, Believe The Hype, Chaotic

  • Pool C – Team Mantra, DivvyCloud, 8ighty 2wenty

  • Pool D – Simplicity Esports, Nfinite, Unllimited

Each pool will gain one more team before the tournament begins, according to the winners of the Open Bracket.

Championship Bracket

This is the final stage of the games, with 20 teams qualified through the Open Bracket and Pool Play. It once again has a Double Elimination bracket, and all matches are Best of Five until we reach the finals. The EB-, WB- and Grand Finals are Best of Seven matches and will determine the winners overall.

The Halo 5: Guardians 2v2

Each year, there is a small event that runs alongside the main one, and this year it’s Halo 5: Guardians 2V2. This is a sign-up-on-the-day event that can host up to 48 teams, so it’s a first-come-first-served process, but with a $5,000 prize pool to be split between 1st, 2nd and 3rd, it’s always a popular addition to the Halo Series. It begins on Saturday, but will only be open to teams that haven’t already qualified for one of the other tournaments, as they run at the same time.

Ticket Info

If you want to attend the event as a team, you’ll need to get a Halo team pass. Each pass will grant access for four people to the entire DreamHack Atlanta 3 Day Festival but also includes a single team sign up for the series. Currently, the team pass sits at $199.

For standard visitors, or any additional coaches or team supporters that want to attend, pricing will depend on how long you’re attending for, whether you’re bringing your own computer and the level of ticket that you want.

  • BYOC – $115 for 3 days 24/7 access, 100mbit Ethernet Port, 30” x 30” for your PC and Peripherals. Must be purchased in advance.

  • BYOC Premium - $275 for the above, but with 1gbit network uplink, a 48” x 30” space, an exclusive hoodie and a home delivery add-on. Must be purchased in advance.

  • BYOC Ultra - $555 for the above, with Gaming desktop loan, 120hx screen, maxnomic chair and unique, customisation badge.

  • Festival Pass - $79 in advance or $85 at the door for 24/7 3-day access to the whole festival.

  • Festival Premium - $189 for 24/7 3-day access to the festival, plus a premium hoodie. Must be purchased in advance.

  • Day Pass - $35 in advance or $40 at the door for 1-day access to the whole festival

This year’s festival is already looking to be an exciting one, and we’re looking forward to seeing which teams come out on top. Grab your tickets and head to the Georgia World Congress Centre to check out the competition.
