Below you will see team pass pricing for each month and a link for settings, maps and game types.

LGU Points and FFA Seeding:
LGU Points serve many different things in your journey through our Halo Series. Each player will earn points based on how they place as well as points just for playing in FFA that help your seed for 2v2 or 4v4. Points stack. To get the most points in a LAN, you can play in all 3 brackets. The points will level your player card up each month which will determine your qualification in the top 8 team LAN at the end of the season. More details will be posted on this page later in the 2016 season. Points for team based brackets such as 4v4 are a combined total. If you have 20 points and I have 30 points, as a team we have 50. That’s how we do seeding for all team based brackets but the points are recorded separately just in case you play with a different team at some point in the season. Halo FFA will determine your seed in the 4v4 each month. 1 member per team will get a free entry into the FFA. If all your players play in FFA, you have a better chance of getting a higher seed each month as those points will be based on placings in FFA. 2v2 is based on LGU Points not FFA. All other LGU Points you earn will be recorded for seeding in the final top 8 LAN at the end of the 2016 season in October so start earning points and enjoy having competitive Halo back in Pittsburgh!!
LGU Points have the same break down as MES Points and are recorded as points to be used for any LGU sanctioned tournaments such as MES, KOTC, AGN and many others. If you used the free FFA pass from buying a 4v4 team pass you will still get LGU Points for the 4v4 bracket.
LGU Points ran from series points so if we announce the tournament is a 2K LGU Point Series, all 4 players on the winner 4v4 team will receive 2,000 LGU Points, the 2nd place team would get 1200 points per player, and so on. All participating teams get points based on what place they earned, and you will not get points for registering and not showing up. No-shows are removed from the bracket before points are distributed. LGU Points must be earned. Once the player profiles are available online, a complete break down will be posted on the website for players to review and plan a team strategy for earning the most points possible.
Player Rankings and qualifying for final LAN:
Each player earns points that will level up your experience bar each month. Once our new site launches, you will see were you stand. For now we will be recording your points and will try and get a basic way for you to see were you stand in our season according to individual player points. Rankings will be based on points not stats. This page will be updated once we have that up on our website.
Building your Halo team with points:
Once we get started with recording the points, you will see everyone who has the most to the least amount of points and a way to contact them when building a new team. This will be built into our new website under team builder. We are going to start recording stats for LAN only. That will help you in building your team and choosing players. Also keep in mind that if a player missed a month or 2 they will not be as high of a rank as if a player played who attends every month and played in every bracket. In this case, make sure to judge a player on there stats and reputation. Next to each player be sure to check if they are a free agent or on a team.

FFA- (Slayer) This is a slayer based game type that will help us determine your seed in the 4v4 tournaments. When you sign up for the 4v4 you get one free pass for one of your players to play in the free-for-all. All other players will be required to pay the 15$ pass to enter. How the seeding works is as follows:
1st place: 10 seeding points
2nd place: 7 seeding points
3rd place: 6 seeding points
4th-8th: 4 seeding points
The team with the most points put together will be the highest seed for 4v4 so it will be in your best interest to get as many players you can to play in the free-for-all. Only first place will receive a cash prize. These points are not the same as our LGU Points.
2v2- (slayer only) Team Slayer
4v4- (Variant) Team slayer, Capture The Flag, StrongHolds
All players will be charged a 1 time per event $5 venue fee on top of the team passes. If you are coming to spectate its $5. All players must pay before being placed on the final bracket. (Cash Only) at the door day of the event. There are no outside snacks or drinks allowed. Everything we sell is 1-5 dollars. we except credit, debit, paypal for purchases over 5 dollars. We do same day cash payouts so make sure team passes and venue fees are cash only. if you need to pay the venue fee with card or paypal you have that option.
FFA- $15 but one free pass with the purchase of a 4v4 team pass.
2v2- $50 a team
4v4- $120 a team
payout is upto $500. No matter what, you are guaranteed to win at least double or triple your money for 1st place. Meaning if you pay $100 for your team pass you will walk away with at least $200 or $300. 11 or more teams and we will start to payout 2nd place. As we said before, no matter what you are guaranteed double or even triple your money for placing 1st. The more teams the bigger the payout.
