The MS store mixer matchup tournaments do a pretty good job of highlighting amateur players.thetimewarptrio wrote:I like parts of this idea.BonaFydeODST wrote:Maybe we should have halo E-sports for casuals. Sounds like a great idea. I mean think of the possibilities, Halo could choose some amateur fans to make a team and have a pro player as the coach and have them battle it out. Almost like ultimate fighter but with Halo. Well it’s just a thought.
In thinking of things like the "celebrity softball game" held every year at the MLB ASG, you could do a 4 man tournament that consisted of 1 MLG player, 1 celebrity/343 member (ske7ch or even like Conan come to mind, fans of the game), and then two randomly chosen contest winners from the community to play through a tournament. That way you could see how the casuals play with the pro players, and throwing in the celeb or staff member too for fun.
Would engage 343 with the community, as well as kind of give everyone a chance to see how we would interact when playing with and against some professionals.
Perhaps they could do something kinda like what Gears just did with their tournament. They had a huge thing going where an amateur team wins a trip to compete with the big boys in Mexico city!
