    I’d figure a games should be required to be balanced before it could even have a fair gaming tournament.

    I’m guessing all players must either use DMR or are banned from using it, being its the most broken weapon in that game.

    A word of advice to Microsoft : paying grinders to compete for money won’t earn you a loyal (healthy) community. Take the prize money, and use that to develop DLC for free. The fact is that COD is king, and the only way to make inroads is to provide incentives to your players consistently over the life of the game. I buy all Halo DLC, though I can’t use it due to the fragmented player base and dwindling community. Reward your players – not the pathetic grinders who play 20 hour sessions in the vain hope of winning big.

    I registered for this just for fun. I’ll play the weekly requirements when I can, it’ll help unwind after 8 hours of “Do you have Last Of Us in stock?” lol.
