H5 Pro Series - Season 3 Champions
Designing the Halo Esports Ecosystem
February 2021 - Role of Tournament Operators
Welcome to the second installment of our new blog series. In this month’s blog we’re going to do a deep dive into tournament operators. What’s the role of tournament operators? (outside of the obvious running of tournaments) What are the types of tournament operators we’ll be working with? How does HCS Grassroots fit into the picture?
Let's do this!
January 2021 - Our mission and goals
Welcome to the first installment of our new blog series - Designing the Halo Esports Ecosystem. The goal of this blog series is to detail how we are working to develop a healthy and sustainable ecosystem for Halo esports. If you’re interested in our philosophical approach to esports as a fan, player, team, tournament organizer, or even sponsor, then this blog series is for you! If you’re hoping to learn specifics about format and roadmap, stay tuned because that info will come as we get closer to the launch of Halo Infinite.
In the first blog we talk about our approach at the highest level, as well as our role in the ecosystem. The main focus is to set the foundation for how we think about the ecosystem as a whole, details of our mission, our overall goals, and more!

2021 Halo Tournament Update
MCC & H5 Pro Series tournaments return
As Halo Infinite continues to bake in the oven, we wanted to provide some updates on what to expect from Halo esports in early 2021. Since the announcement of the delay, we’ve been working as quickly as possible with our partners to provide competitions for players to keep busy with and sharpen their skills until the HCS returns for Halo Infinite. We're hyped to bring back weekly Open Halo 3 tournaments, as well as continuing to support the Halo 5 Pro Series in NA, LATAM, ANZ, and EMEA!
All OPEN tournaments have changed to Double Elimination.
