Thanks to invitations extended by 343 Industries, this weekend at PAX, 8 members from the GrifballHub staff and community will be competing in the Halo 4 Global Championship. The top prize is $200,000.
Competing this weekend are:
Obviously, in order to be eligible to compete, you had to already be planning to attend PAX this year and be a member of this community.
Although he will be there, unfortunately TacoPizzaHunter is unable to participate, thanks to lame Arizona laws. You need to move, bro. I’m not entirely sure Dr Leo is actually eligible to win either, as he is employed by Microsoft. It should however be a great experience for him, as I’m sure it will be for everyone.
The odds are certainly against them all, since there are no hammers in any of the tournament’s FFA gametypes. That being said, let’s cheer them on and hope that at the very least, none of them finish last. Thus proving that Grifballers can play shooty Halo…sort of.
Live streams of the tournament will begin Friday, August 30th on 343 Industries’ Twitch Channel at 2:30pm EST. They will continue Saturday, also on the 343 Twitch channel, beginning again at 2:30pm EST. Finally the tournament will conclude Sunday night, September 1st at 7pm EST, streamed on XBOX Live via the Live Video Player.
Feel free to discuss the tournament, in this thread, on our forums.
