These teams will compete in a single-elimination bracket format at the X Games Aspen for not only medals, but also for a share of the $30,000 prize pool. While the teams will continue to participate in the Halo World Championship, the X Games Aspen Invitational will not contribute points for their placements in the regional finals.
