By Official HCS -
After weeks of internal playtesting, and public playtesting with HCS players that joined us, the settings for the 2018 season of the Halo Championship Series are now locked in place and ready for competition! If you’re just joining us, you can catch up on the entire process:
- 2018 Settings Update
- Forge Maps & Abilities
- Testing of Outpost/Sanctum (Refuge)
- Forge Maps and Playlist Updates
Last week we announced the final map rotation but here is the list one more time:
- The Rig
Capture the Flag:
- The Rig
With settings now locked, the HCS 2018 playlist will be updated next week so that it’s 1:1 with what will be played in tournaments. Additionally, the custom game listing will also be updated with the very latest next week as well. Until then, you can download and play the official settings using the updated “Official HCS” fileshare.
Before we sign off, we want to offer a thank you to the amazing Forgers who created all of the maps that were testing during this process. Also, a big thank you to HCS Pros and Amateur players alike who joined us in playtests each day – Saiyan, Mikwen, Snip3down, Hunter JJX, Randa – to name just a few.
