Halo World Championship recap: How did the UK teams do?

The 2018 Halo World Championship has concluded. Jon Nicholson reports on the tournament and how the Europeans fared on the world stage.

 

SPLYCE DOMINATE THE OPPOSITION

The North American side of Splyce dominated from the outset and were able to defeat TOX Gaming with a dominant 4-0 sweep in the grand finals.

The event marks three straight tournament wins for Splyce, after taking home the championships in Columbus and Orlando respectively.

 

INFUSED MAKE TOP EIGHT

Heading into the tournament as Europe's top team, Infused were looking for a soild placement after two weeks of practice against North America's finest.

After making it into the knockout bracket, the Europeans were beaten 4-1 by Renegades to finish in eighth place, taking home $20,000 in prize money.

 

UK TEAMS STRUGGLE

The UK teams of Myztro and Vexed were hoping on matching the performance of Infused on the international stage.

Myztro rounded out the bottom of the standings after losing both of their games in pool play.

Vexed were able to finish 12th after defeating Team Immunity in pool play - a good foundation to build on for the remainder of the season.

 

THE FUTURE OF HALO IS BRIGHT

With currently no other information on upcoming events, the Halo scene is in a state of limbo until something is announced by the developers.

However, the grand finals hit over 100,000 concurrent viewers, partly thanks to Twitch superstar and former Halo pro Tyler "Ninja" Blevins, so it seems Halo esports is healthy and is well set for the future.
