Pro League Preview Tournament Announced; GoldenBoy and Walshy Casting
Revealed through the Twitter of Kelby May, the Direct of Talent and Accounts at GoodGame Agency (who are owned by Twitch TV), there will be a Pro League Preview Tournament next weekend. Taking place May 29th to 31st, the event will feature a $5,000 prize pool and the eight teams who will be participating in the HCS Pro League. The format for the event is currently unknown.
Both Walshy and GoldenBoy have been announced as the casters, a surprise considering the situation that GoldenBoy has been in with the community over the past few days. Due to scheduling conflicts, the once staple HCS caster has had to announce that he will be slowing down as a caster for the foreseeable future in regards to Halo events. He has, however, made it clear that he still loves Halo and will look forward to doing the odd event such as this one.
Not only will GoldenBoy be casting, however, he is also producing and organizing the event. It will be streamed over his Twitch TV channel. The tournament will, as such, be of the online variety.
Despite not being hosted by the HCS, the event has been publically supported by the league’s Twitter account.
This event acts as a short term send off for some fans’ favorite caster, as well as a great preview for the exciting Halo we’ll be able to see over the course of the Pro League.
