IDK if i am gonna show up this year. These are v1 rules which there is v2 and with v3 coming out soon (possibly before this event) i just dont if its worth traveling 1300 miles to take part in my hometown event that doesn't even have the current rules on the website. Than again i expect the rules and all that to be different on the site than at the event just like it was last year.

if u wanna just say "We will use the current MLG rules come tournament time." that would be cool.

Ov3rKiL1,

I feel confident we have continually improved our halo tournament every year. With the addition of official headsets last year and gamefrog's sponsorship of the event this year we will have equipment comparable to that of MLG. ie Viewsonic Monitors... Without the million dollar budget.

That being said, we are not MLG. We may use their rules and their equipment specs, but that is not who we are.

Our rules will be as close to MLG as we feel we need to make them, as they have been every year. In addition to GameFrog's staff (who do this stuff every week) we will have liaisons who have run CGS Halo tournaments in the past, liaisons who I have every confidence will ensure our tournament meets or exceeds our past events.

They have improved to some degree every year. but these are v1 settings. Yall say u are gonna have MLG settings and dont even post the most up to date ones. it seems to me that the tournament director is just throwing up rules just to get get it over with. Other tournament directors from other games at this venue seem to show that they care by posting every rule and not changing them, so that their competors can be well prepared ahead of time. Last year tournament director had rules on the site and than changed them at the tournament. I could see that happening again this year and i am just not going to be in attendance this year.

Besides that this tournament happens in two weeks and a full team hasnt ever registered yet and with only 5 on FFA. doesn't look like a good turn out, but i guess will see what happens. Good luck to yall

Wow, ok not really sure what to say here man. You've helped us run tournaments in the past so you understand how insane it is to pull this event off every year.

You have played in the tournaments for years so you know the players perspective.

I personally believe we have decent rules posted and have made it clear that our intentions are to be as close to MLG as possible.

But lets say we gave you no idea on what the rules are going to be, you were coming in cold.

So is everybody else!!! Why would you skip a tournament just because you can't practice the exact settings?

If you are as good as I know you are, that won't matter.

Your skill will show, despite knowing the rules or not. Because everyone is equally clueless. It's not like we are giving the rules out to half the players and not to the other half.

Which actually we are because half the people come the day of without a clue what is going on ahead of time. So you automatically have an advantage over them.

Now lets forget all that and look at our event as a whole... We have bands, exhibitors, speakers, a free bag of great swag given to every attendee.

I'm really not trying to recruit you to come, you have to make that call. I'm just saying this will be an amazing year, we have more exhibitors than ever before, our speaker lineup is amazing and complete. We are selling more tickets currently than last year! Halo will fill up as it does every year.

We have more radio advertising than we have had in 2 years.

Also the one thing I really wish you would explain to me personally is why you are so critical about what we do?

We work our asses off. You of all people should know, you did it one year. And things went wrong the year you ran the tournament too. So I'm just confused as to why you are so critical of everything we do.

You should honestly be doing your best to build up this event. It's your home town event, come on man.

I understand if you want to bash us via email. Do it. I can take constructive criticism and improve using it.

But it just doesn't make sense to do it on the forums for no good reason. It truly seems like your just mad and want everyone else to be mad at us too???

We have zero budget, are 100% volunteer run, and yet pull off something 6 figure events can't manage to do half the time. Give us a break and just come expecting to have fun!!

Sorry for the rant, but man you really confuse me.

haha.
Looking forward to another great year at CGS. Should be better than last year and last year was amazing. ( :



@Overkill - I do believe that they changed the gametypes TO the MLG settings when we were at the tournament last year.

Do we have to have a wired 360 Controller?
And do we need to bring our own headsets?

@weldonboy8v2; last year they had their own wired controllers there. i do recommend bringing one however because I do not work for them and do not know what all is in store for this year. Headsets will be provided there because the tournament is sponsored, in part, by Vibras five.one.

@mxrider10997; usually the first gametype is a slayer gametype because it is the first round and they want it to move fast. Last year it was slayer on Amplified in Halo 3. No promises though. I would just run the playlist from now until the tournament and work on all of the maps and gametypes.

Your absolutely correct we will have wired controllers and Vibras 5.1 headsets like last year. These controllers are used just for this tournament and then boxed all year. So they should be in mint condition with only 1-2 days use on them. But BYOController is understandable and allowed.

I am very confident V2 rules will be used, we can't find v3 rules anywhere so I don't think those are an option. We are working out the map lists now. Look for an update shortly.

I think v2 settings should be used seeing as how the Sprint Armor Ability is a key factor in some games. The absence of Sprint might throw some people off.

UPDATE: v2 rules will be used.

There will be 8 screens dedicated to this event.
So first few rounds will be played 2 person split screen.

You can bring your own controllers if you want but they will be inspected before use.

Other then that. Hope to see all you guys tomorrow and cant wait to see who wins this event.
