Where Can I Watch?
You can watch the entirety of the event on either twitch.tv/halo, mlg.tv/halo or WatchESPN starting at 5 p.m. EST on Jan. 28. For the first time you can also catch segments and highlights of the competition as a part of the ESPN telecast. Not every match will be seen via live television, but a good portion will be.
Players will compete for not only the X Games Gold, but also a portion of the $30,000 prize pool. The tournament will run in a single-elimination bracket format.
Teams were selected based on the current Halo World Championship (HWC) standings. The top eight in the standings will be appearing at X Games Aspen to compete. As a reminder, participation in the X Games doesn’t affect a team’s standing in terms of placement or points in the HWC, thus not affecting their placement for the regional finals.
