Halo Championship Series Pro League Invitational at Pax East


Just a few weeks ago, Team Allegiance and Counter Logic Gaming met in Hollywood, California to determine which team would stand atop the rest as the 2016 Halo World Champion. While only one team came away with the $1 million prize, both teams were to be invited directly into the HCS Pro League as a commendation for their incredible performance throughout the Halo World Championship season and final tournament. CLG’s dominant roster currently remains intact, but the members of Team Allegiance have completely disbanded leaving their spot in the league unfilled.

Today, we’re excited to announce the HCS Pro League Invitational at PAX East 2016 by ESL, which will determine the second team that will receive an HCS Pro League invite. Allegiance players who wore the same jerseys at the Halo World Championship Finals will now be on opposing sides of the stage, pitted against each other until just one team remains. After much practice and deliberation, the players have submitted their new rosters, and we’re excited to share them with you today.

• Suspector
• Roy
• Lunchbox
• Snip3down

• Naded
• Flamesword
• Maniac

• Cratos
• Huke
• BubuDubu
• Shooter

• El Town
• Rayne
• Mikwen
• Pistola

We could not have anticipated a more heavy-hitting lineup of teams, and can’t wait to see them duke it out on the ESL stage at PAX East 2016! Here’s a breakdown of the format for this LAN tournament.


  • Winner qualifies for HCS Pro League
  • Double elimination
  • Matches will be a “Best of 5,” until the Winner’s Finals, Loser’s Finals, and Grand Finals, which will be a “Best of 7.”
  • Teams will be seeded based upon Halo World Championship performance
  • Halo World Championship map and game type rotation will be used


The tournament will be held on the ESL stage at PAX East on Sunday Apr. 24 at 11:30 a.m. EST, and we invite all Halo fans in attendance to drop by and watch these incredible matches. For those who prefer to watch this star-studded event from the comfort of their own homes, you’ll be able to watch all day on Twitch.tv/Halo.
