HCS Online Cup Live Stream: Watch The Top 'Halo' Pros Compete For Seeding Points & Prize Money Today
The first online cup for the Halo Championship Series is set to begin today, with qualified teams ready to take on the top pros.
This weekend saw other amateur squads fight it out for a chance to participate in today's Legendary Bracket, where the top eight seeds await. The tournament is set to kick off at 1 p.m. Pacific, 4 p.m. Eastern, and you can watch via the stream below.
Since it's an online tournament, pro players will be streaming their gameplay from home rather than using an official tournament stream. However, the official Twitch Halo stream will be hosting different pro players to continually give fans action from whatever big match is currently going. You can just watch that stream below to see the best action, or feel free to hop around between your favorite pro players.
The previous HCS cups were forced into cancellation because of an issue with Halo: The Master Chief Collection's servers. A new patch had given party joining troubles to players with big friends lists, and many teams simply couldn't complete matches. The problem is seemingly solved, and the rest of the season is ready to get underway. Following the in-person Iron Gaming Atlanta event, a series of online cups on the weekends are now scheduled until later next month.
The current team standings are as follows, with a cash prize more pro points on the line today:
1. Evil Geniuses: Snipedown, Roy, Lunchbox, Lethul
2. Denial: Mikwen, Chig, APG, Heinz
3. Cloud 9: FearItself, Hysteria, VictoryX, Pistola
4. Winterfox: Randa, Ryanoob, Naded, Arkanum
5. Counter Logic Gaming: Ogre 2, Snakebite, Royal 2, Cloud
6. Optic: Ace, Flamesword, Maniac, Assault
7. Noble eSports: Nemassist, Suspector, LifeStyle, Cratos
8. Reality Check: Suddoth 1, Suddoth 2, Septic, Tragic
