Players: We currently have roughly 28 players signed up to play in this tournament. I say roughly because some players that have signed up are not 100% sure they will be able to/ want to play in the tournament come game day. So that means there are at LEAST 4 spots open before we reach a nice and comfy 32 player bracket! SIGN UP IF YOU'RE EVEN CONSIDERING PLAYING! FIRST COME FIRST SERVE!!!!
Settings: The settings are finalized, and everyone seems to agree on using AGL v3 settings, but with 1 minor tweak; making suicides -1 points. Other than that, the settings so far are AGL v3. The only change to the settings between now and game day will be the weapon balances 343 puts out on June 3rd.
Maps: As of now, we have the following maps as potential candidates for the tournament... Sanctuary, Simplex, Rail, and Skyline. All of these maps have been adjusted in terms of weapons and spawns in order to make for a better 1v1 experience. They are all still being tested and fine tuned, but I should have the final maps out sometime soon. I'm still taking suggestions on maps, but once I have them in my file share for everyone, they will not be changed, barring an unforeseen exploit. I will only have 3 maps in rotation, so at least one of these maps will not be used. I'll keep you guys posted on this.
Random Notes: If anyone has a really good Warlock remake, or any well known map that you feel should be considered as one of the 3 tournament maps, please let me know about it! Also, is there a way to reduce the overshield from 2 layers to 1 layer? I can't find an option to do this, and I've also heard a rumor that the overshield is only 1 layer in CTF due to some glitch with the gametype. Can anyone confirm this, or let me know where I can make adjustments to the overshield?
Other than that, things are looking good! Again though.... Sign up to this tournament even if you're THINKING about participating!!! If you need to back out, I'm sure someone else will take your spot. There are a lot of heavy hitters participating in this tournament, and If you would like to be a part of it, put your name on the list ASAP!!!
I played a few 1v1s with Fish earlier. I really like the settings and how he balanced the weapons on the map. I had my doubts at first about the tournament due to halo 4 sucking ass. but honestly, it's shaping up pretty good!

I think you'll have to use the V2 settings for the 1 layer overshield.
Play me on rail and skyline later btw
OOOH LAWD JESUS OH JESUS GET DA WATER *****! IT GOING DOWN! DEM MOTHER******* BOOTLEG FIREWORK ****! OH ****! wooo
I'm getting closer to deciding the 3 maps and the settings we'll be using for the tournament. Still some things to decide between, but I'll have everything sorted out by Tuesday, most likely. When I figure all of this out, I'll post a separate information thread, load everything to my fileshare, and I'll send everyone that's currently signed up a message on XBL telling them to download the maps and settings.
Things are shaping up, and 1v1s are actually fun again in Halo 4. Almost 1 full month until tournament day!
