If we were going to have a halo3 torny (which i don't believe will happen)

We SHOULD use MLG rules and map settings
There SHOULD be a FFA and a 4v4

Reasons for such conditions are that these game types promote skill

Yeah! I love Halo 3, we should totally have a tournament at Fanime!

What does FFA and MLG mean? I forgot.

Provide me with standard rules and we'll see.

The problem with 4v4 is we don't have a network (to our knowledge) to use to hook up 2 360's.
We're currently looking into 4 player FFA and 2v2, both 1st to 25 games.

If you have standard tournament rules, please post them so we can modify our rules.  I'm helping organize all E-gaming tournaments.  We are looking into CoD4 and Halo3.  We, however, don't have the standard rules.

FFA mean Free For All
and MLG stands for Major League Gaming witch is a Gaming Circuit based around several games including halo3.
the rules go into detail but some of the basics are Spawning with a Battle Rifle instead of a Assault Rifle and some other minor changes.

Well i dont know what a network has to do with linking 2 360s because all you need is a ethernet wire
and if you get several routers, and ethernet wires you could life up several 360s.
by the way, if there will be a 4v4 tornament, dont put a entire team on one Xbox.

As for the MLG rules for Halo3:here (http://www.mlgpro.com/?q=node/192918)
These rules provide in game balance and will definitely make the tournament a lot more fair.

Looks like I'll have to spend some time pre-tournament going to all of these maps and finding these "cheat" spots.

Also, what is this ball that they're speaking of?  I'm not a hardcore halo player so I don't know the lingo.
Also, they don't state the standard map settings, which I would appreciate.
Only rules off the top of my head that I know are no hand weapons and no Power weapons.

The Ball refers to oddball, a game type in halo3.
You dont need to worry about this as im sure will only be playing  Slayer(Death Matches)
Also, they don't state the standard map settings, which I would appreciate.
Well your supposed to download the Map settings. You can download these settings by hooking up a 360 to the internet, making a Xbox Live Silver Account, which is free, going HERE (http://www.bungie.net/stats/Halo3/FileShare.aspx?gamertag=MLG%20Gametypes) and download the content you require. By the way, your window live ID is the email you linked to your Live Account. After this start up halo 3 while signed into your Live Account and it should download automatically

theres no need to download many maps because all you need is 1 or 2 (I suggest MLG Guardian v4 and MLG The Pit v4)
and the gametype MLG TS v4

If you have any other questions or need help with anything, I should be able to help

The MLG rules were listing stuff like you can't go to "top center" of gaurdian map or something, and other stuff like that.

I mean I have 2v2/ 1v1v1v1, 1st to 25, 7 minutes, no hand weapons, no power weapons.
Are these the correct settings?

Where did say that, that doesnt sound right at all.
do you mean this:
The fusion coils were removed from the attic as players will now be prohibited by rule from entering into that area of the map.
because if so, dont worry about it, MLG has all ready token care of it.
I mean I have 2v2/ 1v1v1v1, 1st to 25, 7 minutes, no hand weapons, no power weapons.
Are these the correct settings?
weapons on map should be default, as we should be playing MLG Variant Maps.
Do you understand?

try not to give out a bad prize for a good game bout!..
nearly every halo tournament i went to (convention wise), it was always a crappy 360 prize which they got from gamestop for 5.99! a free game yeah but sometimes its lame and you rather cash it out for a less prize money -_-!...
for once i would like to see a prize worth seeing like a made up HALO GUN! or a spartan helmet XD!....

before you can give me a lame opinion. I just wanna say (SOME good TOURNEYS must deserve a prize!) learn this from VGL, learn this from Fanime, Learn this the hard way after putting so much effort on both cosplaying and video games!)

I want it a mister chief helmet
I can gut it out and make it wearable!!!

What will we get if we win the tournament?

That one I want to know as well!!!!!
but since its too early for prizes....IM still getting more worried on what the prizes is going to be -_-!!!!!!
the helmet DOES sound like an interesting prize... (the dvd case i heard about)....why not use that..it can store all three halo games as well !!!!!!!!!!

otherwise i got this feeling the winner gets either a game of their choice.......or halo (the original xbox game -_-)!!!! would be better if its a XBox live subscription!!!!

The Helmet is pretty cool, and one of the extra disks that come with it shows Ling Lings Head!!!
Oh that poor dog...

An Xbox Live Membership is cool I guess. I wont have to pay for another year!!!

Gotta take into consideration that the prizes are most likely out of pocket since while "official" they (the tourneys) aren't sponsored by Fanime or anyone else willing to drop the cash for good prizes.

Unless I am wrong and have been reading it all wrong since this whole tourney thing started.

I would like to suggest for the tournaments to be either 2 v 2 or 1v1. Since you have to think about screen size. puting 4 people on 1 screen is a bit hard unless you have big screens. And rules be MLG settings and maps minus the power weapons on some map such as the rockets. 

I would also love to see griff ball but just for freeplay it would be really crazy to have a grifball tourny. Swat will be good also.

No, there will not be a tournament ran by Fanime this year.

However, from what I've heard, there may be a underground tournament, however I cannot confirm this, and it will be hard as hell to find if they dont post up any info on the forums.

I know what you mean...
I'm too poor to buy the maps, which sucks because I want to play the MLG Blackout soo badly, as well as play Blackout in general.

If I was going to guess compared to win the Heroic Map pack was released and made free, I'd say Late June to Mid July.

Personally all I need is MLG, as long as I have friends on who I would play it with I'm happy.

I find things like SWAT or Grifball or Infection fun, but like playing them only on occasions.
Title: Re: Halo3 Tornament
Post by: error00004 on June 08, 2008, 08:46:41 PM
I see.
All my friends are going away... as in, They only play COD4 and never play halo anymore
so Im losing friends D;
That might be why I'm soo bored.
Title: Re: Halo3 Tornament
Post by: TC X0 Lt 0X on June 08, 2008, 09:00:42 PM
It happeneds.

People go and play CoD4 because its FAR less frustratingly and easier than Halo 3.

It not as near as competitive as Halo, and it allows players to rank up to highest rank with no more than putting time in it.


Of course the game, while I do enjoy playing it, is as broken as they come. Broken spawns, broken weapons, maps that were cut and pasted from the single player game, you name it. But still, people flock to it for it easiness.

But whatever, in the end, those same people will move on to the next fun online game that will be out in 6 months, than to the one after that. In fact, for us who are left its a blessing. It means that those who are truly dedicated to the game will be the only ones playing, leaving stability.

Now to go play some Halo, after my 360 cools down. It just went 2 red bars (it overheated).
Title: Re: Halo3 Tornament
Post by: error00004 on June 08, 2008, 09:06:26 PM

Title: Re: Halo3 Tornament
Post by: TC X0 Lt 0X on June 08, 2008, 09:11:20 PM
I've had it on and off various times today.

As for how long it was on, 30 min. Yeah.

My room traps so much heat, and I have myself, a bird, a TV, a Computer and Monitor, and my 360 producing heat in it.

I've opened up my windows to cool the room down as well as my box.

I should be on in like 5 min.
