Podtacular’s Halo 3 Farewell 3v3 Tourney
Halo Reach is 7 weeks away and Podtacular hasn’t hosted a tourney in quite some time. So to break the silence, we are throwing a Halo 3 3v3 Tourney for everyone. Anyone can participate and there will be prizes awarded to the winners. Without further delays, let’s see the details.
• Any team of 3 can enter the tournament. You may have a substitute in your roster if you like.
• Feel free to spread this to anyone you know or other communities you may be affiliated with. We want a big turnout.
• Depending on how many teams register, gameplay will start on August 28th if there are more than 16 teams, September 4th if there are 16 or less. There is a max of 64 teams. Two rounds will be played each weekend.
• Tournament will run in a bracket style, best of three games. It is first round elimination: loose your best of three and you’re out.
• Games will be played on Fridays and Saturdays. Sundays and Mondays will be open for reschedules if teams need it.
• All players are required to use the Spartan Armor.
• Every round will consist of three matches. Each team will get to pick their gametype and map and the third match will be chosen at random. Gametypes and Maps will be put into a pool that can be selected from. Gametypes will be Slayer, CTF and Oddball. Maps and gametypes will be available for download to practice August 7th.
• In the event of a tie-break, a Slayer game will be played on a pre-determined map. The winner will be the team with the most kills after 10 minutes.

The match will be rescheduled for the agreed time. If they are unable, the team who could not make the originally scheduled time will forfeit their position.
