After a long weekend of quality Halo, many restarts and a unified support for our very own European team in attendance, a champion of the PAX Prime showdown has been crowned after a single best of five series in the finals!
From a marriage proposal to juicy details left, right and centre, the Halo panel had everything. Gently trickling out details to keep us satisfied until September, here's a recap of what was talked about.
Takes part on a fragmented part of the Halo ring from Halo 1.
Spins round a sun, during the day the temperature is too hot, and at night is cool enough to live on, hence the name nightfall.
The plot will take place within the 16 hours the characters have until the fractured ring turns towards the sun and heats up.
Starting at 7pm BST tonight over on Halo's twitch channel, will be a panel of 343i staff members Frank O’Connor, Dan Ayoub, Kiki Wolfkill, Paul Lipson and president of Certain Affinity Max Hoberman. They'll be talking about the world of Halo, upcoming projects and the future of the franchise, answering questions from the community about the Master Chief Collection hitting the stores this November.
Then, starting at 8pm BST will be the PAX $10k Halo:MCC tournament. A double elimination tournament, viewers will see our very own UK team, TCM, have a pop at our cousins from across the water as they battle it out for a share of a $10k prize...
One of the most debated topics since Halo: Master Chief Collection was announced is which game should be played at competitive 4v4 eSports tournaments, H1/H2/H2A/H3 or H4?
To summarise; Halo 3 + Halo 4 were quickly brushed aside, Halo 1 is a possibility but arguably plays better 1v1 or 2v2. Halo 2 gets the majority of votes, but which version of the game should be played? The original Halo 2 with 60FPS and button glitches intact or Halo 2: Anniversary with revamped graphics + maps but without button glitches.
The main concern with Halo 2: Anniversary being chosen is the current lack of competitive maps.
I didn't have a great varity in footage since events aren't as rowdy as they once were, I guess there's not as many rivalries anymore, it's all just A4D vs whatever team Warlord is on.
But anyway, I'm quite happy with the way this turned out, I love the song, and to me it makes the video show how much fun events actually are.
Naturally, VwS are worthy of Good LAN for Insomnia 52. Having won the entire tournament, and only dropping one map in the entire process, they smashed the competition and dominated the tournament. When met against Infused in the final, Infused were only able to hold them up one map before VwS were able to seize the Insomnia 52 (and potentially last Halo 3) title! Congratulations to the players and the organisation, let’s see if they can continue their dominance into Halo: MCC.
