Halo World Championship 2017 sets records

The Halo World Championship 2017 Finals broke records after three amazing days of competition between twelve of the best teams the world has to offer.

The Halo World Championship began with hundreds of teams and thousands of players competing in qualifiers, but only the twelve aforementioned teams were good enough to make it this far.

The Halo World Championship 2017 Finals by ESL broke digital viewership records across the board. At its height, the broadcast reached more than 135,000 concurrent viewers across Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, and Beam. In addition, more than 13 million unique viewers tuned in over the weekend to see competitive Halo played at its peak. For the first time in eSports history, 10.3 million unique viewers watched the tournament live on Twitter.

OpTic Gaming had arguably the two best players in the entire tournament, with Royal 2 posting an incredible 1.55 KD ratio. His teammate, SnakeBite, posted a 1.37 KD. Both were top two in the tournament.

Team EnVyUs went on an incredible streak, winning 16 games in a row at one point. After falling in the Loser’s Bracket after the first round, Team EnVyUs sent four teams home, including a very talented Team Liquid, before losing in the Grand Finals.

In the end, OpTic Gaming’s Bradley “Frosty” Bergstrom, TJ “Lethul” Campbell, Mathew “Royal 2” Fiorante, Paul “SnakeBite” Duarte and Coach Chris “Royal 1” Fiorante repeated as Halo World Champions.
