Xbox Live Evolved, the fan-made site with a dedicated team willing to help you and your Clan, is starting its first Halo 2 League - Autumn 2006 - on the 13th of August.
You might remember Xbox Live Evolved
as the site which is there to help you and your Clan get some matches going on, get a website or some forums.
Well, Xbox Live Evolved
are starting up their Halo 2 Leagues for both single players and Clans. Set to start the evening of the 13th August, the Leagues will take place every week for 11 weeks, after which there will be a 2 week break before the Winter '06 Leagues begin.
The Rumble Pit League is expected to be the most popular League, with matches consisting of up to 12 people duking it out together in a range of gametypes, including:
Apocalypse (Juggernaut gametype)
On the other side, there are 4v4 Leagues as well - we are expected to see a few rivalries develop between teams as the weeks go by and the Leagues develop. Just make sure that all you team members attend, or you're most likely going to get owned in gametypes such as these:
Team Slayer BR
Team Slayer Covenant
1 Flag CTF
Multi Flag CTF
There is still plenty of time to register for the Leagues, which can be done either by the Xbox Live Evolved Forums
or by the Halo 2 Leagues page
on the Xbox Live Evolved website (currently under construction, so it might look empty!)
The Leagues also undergo constant editing by request of the players - adding new gametypes, removing others, defining rules, etc. - so if there is some part of the Leagues that you don't like, don't live with it - try and change it! Also, make sure to keep in touch, so you don't come back to a huge barrage of unexpected changes.
The first league match to be played will be the Rumble Pit League 1A match, taking place at 10pm CDT on the 13th August - hopefully you'll be playing!
