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.
Riding on the current wave of organisations coming back to Halo, Total eSports Circuit makes it's grand return by picking up the newly formed Outbreak! The team has a wealth of Halo experience, with many tournament wins under their belt, their line up is @Lethal, @Jimbossity, @Smithy LS and @Adamack, with their manager being @TheSimms!
I caught up with Jimbossity to give us a few words about this exciting opportunity!
Following our first tournament, the #RoadTo400 FFA, where over 250 players registered, we noticed that even though it was holiday season, players still showed their motivation and their will to compete.
It is for this reason that we want to organize another event in order to keep the competitive scene active until Halo MCC comes out in November.
We are announcing the 2v2 tournament #MyTeammate, which will offer prize money and will be organized by ourselves !
The total prize pool will be of 500€, distributed on two separate tournaments (Halo 3 & 4), the two top teams in each will receive money. Players can register themselves in both tournaments, the Halo 4 one will take place Sunday...
After players collided at Coventry in the FFA tournament to determine the 4v4 seeds, it seems a winner has been decided after 8 players battled through three rounds to determine the champion of the i52 Halo 3 FFA Championships!
In the wake of their recent win at gamescom netting them a cool $5k, and the news of TCM getting the opportunity to jet out to america to take on legendary teams such as Str8 Rippin and Triggers Down, TCM took the time out with 343i to talk about their time in Germany, and what they thought about the teams that attended.
Hey, TCM! Congratulations on winning the first ever Halo 2: Anniversary tournament! Tell us about your feelings and expectations coming into the Halo gamescom Showdown.
Ramirez: Feelin' good definitely, lot of confidence and excited to see what the game would play like, placement wise we weren't...
I managed to get a hold of UK Halo player Lethal, who was part of the VwS line up which came second at Gamescom in Germnay. He talks to us about what Halo 2 Anniversary plays like and how it comapres to the orginal version. I also asked him some of the community questions, featuring questions from Beyond, Haloforum.eu and SSRCG. And yes, I ask him who is better, UK Lethal or USA Lethal. Enjoy!
Im aware of my mic issue, it is something I need to replace as I think it is just on its way out.
