Team Beyond Launching FFA Tournaments
Team Beyond, the online hub for competitive Halo, has announced that they will be launching Free For All competitions in addition to their already existing tournaments. They will also be sponsored by AstroGaming and will award the winner $200, as well as an A50 Halo Headset.
The tournaments will support up to 128 players and will be using the same tournament platform that their other events use. They will also be live streamed, casted by Team Beyond’s usual commentating team of FrankTheShow and Clicked. The tournament will also be open to both players from North America and Europe. They will run every Wednesday following the kick-off on June 29.
Weapon starts and other gameplay balance is still being discussed and yet to be determined. While many fans would like to see a divergence from the typical HCS settings, others do not see the point of splitting off from the already existing and established meta.
Team Beyond has been running their team tournaments for several months, offering them in the 2v2 and 4v4 format. Many professional players take part in them, so hopefully the same will be true for FFA.
This fills the void that fans have been waiting for since the launch of the Master Chief Collection. Outside of one or two FFAs at LAN events, we have yet to see very much action in this department. Many of the best players in the game today saw their rise to fame through such tournaments and a scene without them is rather disappointing.
As previously stated, the first FFA takes place on June 29. Although there is no sign-up available at this time, it will be found here on their tournament portal when the time comes. Until then, you can check out their next tournament, a $200 2v2 on June 8, here.
