Halo World Championship 2017 (also known as the Halo World Championship 2017 Finals) is the second annual Halo World Championship event, taking place at the ESL Studios in Burbank, California from March 24 - 26, 2017. Halo 5: Guardians is played in 4v4 and amateur FFA competition.

Overview

The event was officially announced on December 10, 2016, during the broadcast for the NA Pro League Relegation. Many differences from the previous year's event were made apparent. This time around, only twelve teams would be invited, with the Asia region no longer being included. In North America, Europe and Latin America, open LAN events would be held to determine qualifying teams, rather than a series of online competitions deciding. In Australia/New Zealand, qualification remained online. For the tournament itself, the bracket format has been changed to double-elimination. The prize pool was revealed to be $1,000,000, with potential growth from crowdfunding.

Format

  • 12 teams invited as specified, based on performance in regional qualifiers:
    • 7 North American (NA) teams
    • 3 European (EU) teams
    • 1 Australian/New Zealand (ANZ) team
    • 1 Latin American (LATAM) team
  • Group Stage
    • Three-team groups
    • Teams advance to Championship Bracket based on Group placing
    • Best-of-5 series
  • Championship bracket
    • Teams seeded by Group Stage results
    • Bottom team from each group automatically placed in LBR1
    • Double-elimination bracket, best-of-7 series
