Halo50k was one of the first major Halo events, taking place in Atlanta, Georgia from April 26-27, 2003. Halo: CE was played in 4v4, 2v2 and FFA competition.


Halo50k started out as an ambitious effort by fans to host a tournament with a $50,000 prize for the winners. As a result, entry fees started out steep, at $100 per person and $400 per team. In order for the 50k dream to become reality, the tournament would require 1000 entrants (250 teams of 4).[1] Unfortunately they fell far short of this, but Halo50k is still cemented in competitive Halo history for a multitude of reasons, its ambitiousness being only one of them. Despite not meeting the goal, it was still the Halo tournament with the highest prize payout at the time. It also featured the first appearance of the Ogre twins, Ogre 1 and Ogre 2, at a major Halo event. They came out strong, winning the 2v2 competition, the first of an unbeaten record in 2v2s. This set off a career of dominance that would continue for years.
