Halo 5_SA_01

Are you a Halo 5 player in South Africa (or even Africa)? Then grab a friend and partner up for this 2v2 tournament scheduled for 9 and 10 April.

Up for grabs is R2,000 in cash split over the top five teams.

The tournament will be run online as a double elimination bracket with the best of three matches seeing the modes rotated between Slayer, CTF and Breakout.

The cash prize pool of R2,000 has been donated by two community members – Arrie “Zeus” and Kenan “Kanine” – which again shows Halo South Africa’s interest in growing their own community rather than waiting on others.

The prizes will be broken up as follows:

  • 1st Place: R750
  • 2nd Place: R500
  • 3rd Place: R350
  • 4th Place: R250
  • 5th Place: R150

To enter the tournament you need to tweet (yes, you need Twitter) @iBeIRISH or @SouthAfricaHalo with:

  • Your team name
  • Your players’ gamertags

You can also keep up to date with the tournament information via the Facebook event page, as well as register there with the same information as requested via Twitter.
