We're thrilled to announce the details of the first Diamond HCS Halo 2 Anniversary LAN tournament on Xbox One!

The event is being hosted by UGC in St. Louis over the first weekend of 2015, from the 2nd to the 4th of January. The prize pool is a guaranteed $20,000!

Event Overview

The #UGC20K LAN tournament will take place at the Airport Hilton Hotel in St. Louis, MO. The event is open to all participants over the age of 16 (a consent form is required for those under 18).

Pre-registration is now closed. Only teams who pre-register are eligible for the initial $220 team passes, with the pre-registration fee of $20 acting as a deposit on the team pass. This allows players time to secure a team before having to spend the full amount for a team pass.

Pre-registration is limited to 64 teams. Full team passes will go on sale once the initial 64 pre-registration slots have been filled. The $200 passes will then only be available to teams that have pre-registered.

Game types and settings are available here.

Event Passes

Team passes are only available to the first 64 teams that purchase them, on a first-come, first-serve basis. The event is capped at 64 teams, so once passes are sold out - they're gone.

The team pass covers a full team of 4 players for the duration of the event (3 days), including the FFA which is due to be held on the Friday. If your team has a coach, they will need to purchase a spectator pass separately, which is available below.

Team passes are not refundable unless the event is cancelled, however they can be transferred at any time up until a week before the event.

HCS Points

The #UGC20K is an offical Halo Championship Series (HCS) Diamond event. This means players are eligible for the the maximum amount of points awarded at an HCS LAN Tournament.

This is the current list of confirmed teams with rosters.

Teams will be seeded based on a combination of HCS and FFA points. HCS points are earned by teams from all official tournaments, both online and on LAN, and these are worth the most.

For this event, any teams that don't currently hold HCS points will have the opportunity to seed by FFA points based on player placings. Teams that do currently hold HCS points will have their FFA points added onto their HCS points. If your entire team cannot attend the FFA, your team will still receive a seed based on the rest of the players' results.

Seedings will be updated after the FFA.
