FACEIT and 343 Industries are teaming up for the first time to bring Europe its first major Halo 3 event in nearly a decade. Introducing, FACEIT Ignite!
Located in the heart of London at Lock 4 within Twickenham Stadium, FACEIT Ignite will bring back the grit and grind of LAN events that Halo has always been known for. It’s no holds barred for the 32 teams that will be in attendance!
Additionally, FACEIT Ignite will also play host to a 2v2 side tournament in Halo 5 with many European players still competing in the game to this day!
Leading up to the main event, online qualifiers in North America and Europe will take place. The top team from North America, and the top 2 teams from Europe will be flown out to London for the event. Joining the rest of the field, the total of 32 teams will be split into 4 groups of 8 teams. In this unique format, teams will play multiple games in order to determine placement into a smaller double elimination bracket.
Teams will be seeded by the online qualifiers and groups will be divided based on those seeds.
London will play host to Europe’s first major Halo 3 open LAN in nearly a decade and you can catch all of the action live in person! Not only will Europe’s finest teams, players, and returning legends be in attendance – but also the top qualified team from North America!
Don’t miss your chance to be part of this historic event!
