Over the weekend, North America played in their final Halo World Championship Qualifier! Despite its name, the tournament doesn’t actually award a spot in the final tournament, only Pro Points that contribute towards a spot at each region’s respective Regional Finals.
The tournament was single elimination and used team’s HWC pro points for the seeding. The winner received $1,000 split between the team as well as points based on the following breakdown:
1st – 5,000 Points
2nd – 3,000 Points
3rd/4th – 2,000 Points
5th to 8th – 1,500 Points
9th to 16th – 1,000 Points
17th to 32nd – 500 Points
33rd to 64th – 250 Points
These points totals are also rewarded to each player, meaning the first place team actually gets 20,000 points total.
Top Eight Results
1st – Counter Logic Gaming (Snakebite, Royal 2, Frosty, Lethul)
2nd – Allegiance eSports (Naded, Cratis, eL Town, Suspector)
3rd/4th – Evil Geniuses (LunchBox, Roy, Snipedown, Commonly)
3rd/4th – Team Liquid (Ace, a Pure Gangster, Heinz, UnLegit)
5th to 8th – SoaR Gaming (Sneaky Beaver, Jjx, Juicy Fruit, Winntur)
5th to 8th – Triggers Pound (Assault, Hysteria, Cloud, Danoxide)
5th to 8th – Renegades (Ninja, Spartan, Stellur, VictoryX)
5th to 8th – Noble eSports (Rayne, Swift Kill, Penguin, Calm Mentality)
