Halo World Championship 2018 is the third annual Halo World Championship event, taking place at the Century Link Field Event Center in Seattle, Washington from April 13 - 15, 2018. Halo 5: Guardians is played in 4v4 competition.

Overview

2018 sees the Halo World Championship hosted by Major League Gaming for the first time. The structure has been reverted to a format more akin to 2016, with the key difference being the omission of the Asia region for the second consecutive year. A total of sixteen teams are invited, nine from North America, four from Europe/Middle East, two from Australia and New Zealand and one from Latin America, based on the results of international LAN qualifiers. These sixteen teams compete for a prize pool of $1,000,000.
