Weeks of blood, sweat, and tears have led fourteen dedicated Halo teams to the penultimate showdown at the Halo Championship Series Pro League! The Summer 2016 Season will kickstart on June 2 with only a week to prepare. North America and EU will be competing regionally for glory and a $250,000-per-season prize pool.
It's been a grueling competition, but now that the Last Chance Qualifiers have finished over this last weekend, the roster is set with a total of eight North American teams and 6 European teams making their way into the Summer 2016 Season. Teams will play three matches each per game, battling their opponents at least twice throughout the season. Some will compete in the HCS Finals while others will slip back into the Open Circuit, making way for new teams to claim their stakes in the tournament for Fall 2016.
