Just in case anybody else here was interested in some Halo goodness.
I was pleased with how 343 Industries grew over the course of Season 1. Their commentators and presenters became better at describing gameplay, especially for all the new fans that had not ever seen competitive Halo before. The stream production value for the finals were also top-notch when compared to, say, the Launch Invitational.
As for the finals themselves, without spoiling too much, I'd say that the loser's bracket finals were the best part of the whole tournament. I actually got to watch it live and, my goodness, it was a close set of games. I'll let you watch it yourself so you can feel the same as I did.
Anyway, I just wanted to share with everybody. Anyone else watch the finals, too? I'd like to know who else is optimistic for Season 2.
