HCS Finals 2018 Recap

DreamHack Atlanta represented a powerful moment in time for Halo and its competitive legacy. You had a showcase of the franchise’s early eras with the Halo 3 2v2 Showdown, and glimpses of plans to grow a brand-new generation of competitive communities and content creators with the HCS Grassroots program. And headlining it all was the final page in one of the franchise’s most competitive and impactful chapters to date with the HCS Finals 2018, showcasing the game’s top talent in a brilliant climactic act that saw TOX Gaming take Halo 5’s last title.
