Halo Championship Series Doubles Season 1 Finals Prize Money

halo-championship

Fans of the Halo Championship Series have seen some incredible matches these past few months. Impressed with the level of play and commitment, tournament organisers have agreed to double the Season 1 Finals prize money, which now stands at US$100,000.

Meanwhile, community feedback has prompted a few league updates, as 343 Industries and ESL work together to provide the highest possible level of competition for Halo esports. Roster rules, production quality, standardisation, match replay rules and more are all things that league organizers are looking to further improve for season 2. The updated match replay rules for LAN events are as follows:

  • For Capture the Flag matches, the exact score will be taken from the time of the interruption. For example, if a team is leading a match 4-0 and there is a match interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “understood” score of 4-0, rather than a full 0-0 restart.
  • For Team Slayer matches, the exact score will be taken from the time of the interruption. For example, if a team is leading a match 35-30 and there is a match interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “understood” score of 35-30, rather than a full 0-0 restart.
  • For Oddball and King of the Hill, the match will be replayed with both team scores rounding down to the nearest 5 point increment. For example, if a team is leading 118 – 63 at the time of interruption, the match will be replayed with an aggregate or “understood” score of 115 – 60.
  • In all match replays, the match will be replayed with full time limit, but the aggregate score applied. If a match interruption happens before a team reaches 5 kills in a Team Slayer match, 1 capture in a CTF match, or 10 seconds of Ball / Hill time, the match replay rules will not be taken into effect, and the match will be restarted from 0-0.

All of the updates have been realised in the Halo Championship Series Handbook which is available here.
