This weekend, we are finally seeing a strong return of eSports in the competitive Halo scene. Since Major League Gaming ceased operations of Halo events on their pro circuit, we haven't seen a major tournament for the series in quite some time. Thanks to 343 Industries and the Arena Gaming League, all that changes in Knoxville, TN this weekend.
Watch the best Halo players in the country battle it out for $10,000 in prize money. The big story to watch out for coming into this event is team Ambush, who have managed to win 4 consecutive events. Will they finally be dethroned or will they continue their path of dominance?
Here is the schedule:
(Friday's festivities were the Gamers 4 Christ Free-For-All and All-Star game but we decided to share the stream today, when the big competition actually begins.)
Satuday (EST) - 8:00am to 10:00pm - 4v4 competition
Sunday (EST) - 11:00am to 7:00pm - 4v4 competition, finals
Also, I will be commentating at this event so now you're obligated to tune in (full disclosure: I'm working the event in an official capacity on behalf of AGL).
