Halo 2 Tourney Nears The End

Worldwide Halo 2 Tourney Nears Finish Line Qualifying finalists from 22 of the 24 Xbox Live™ regions have been identified and will advance to the championship round in the world’s first global Xbox Live Halo® 2 tournament. The United States and Japan regional contests are currently underway, with the winners to be determined by the end of May. The winners from each locality will vie for the honor of being crowned Xbox Live Halo 2 World Champion, playing entirely online via Xbox Live. The global championship rounds will be played on Friday, June 10, in double-elimination rounds. The 24 regional winners will be sectioned into four pools of six players each. The top three will move on to the next round, while the bottom three from each group will move into an elimination bracket. Once a regional champion loses twice, the player is eliminated. Each round will last 10 minutes. The final matches will be played on the new Halo 2 map, Warlock. Local start times for the final rounds will be based on Greenwich Mean Time. Having all 24 regions participate in one global tournament is a first for Xbox Live, and the following gamers are trailblazers in a new era of online gameplay and competition. Because each Xbox Live region was guaranteed a spot in the final round, each country has crowned its own Halo 2 champion. Below is the list of the Xbox Live regional champions to date: • Australia: Cabel • Austria: Billykater • Belgium: Project BE • Canada: I DaMan I • Denmark: GermanFreak • Finland: Iw1K1LL • France: I theos I • Germany: Pr0gamer • Hong Kong: Runningboy • Ireland: TheBar0n • Italy: N3LucifeRLS • Japan: To be crowned • Korea: Oddwing • Mexico: MexLoco • Netherlands: King Tuur • New Zealand: Bob69er nz • Norway: ZpiKey • Singapore: tidusSG • Spain: IlopsI • Sweden: Shellman • Switzerland: Otcho Boy • Taiwan: I Kobegod I • United Kingdom: o0Lethal0o • United States: To be crowned In addition to the country champion prize package, the worldwide champion will receive a 50-inch Samsung Flat Screen DLP HDTV, a Samsung high-definition DVD Player, a personalized Xbox Live Halo 2 Worldwide Champion Trophy featuring a 24-karat gold Halo 2 game disc, and $1,500 in cash.
