How to qualify

It couldn’t be easier to take part in 343 Versus The Internet. Simply head over to play343.com, create an account, register your Xbox Live gamertag, create a team and sign up!

Once you and your friends are ready to rock, take a look at the available time slots and sign up to the matches your team can make. There will be four playdays a week, with two match slots available per playday. No match days are mandatory and you can choose when you want to play, but activity is the key to success!

At the end of the two-week season the top five teams will earn a slot in the offline finals, where they will battle for 65-inch Philips UHD Ambilight TVs.

About the finals

343’s pro team will be playing live from ESL UK’s Leicester-based studio against the five qualified teams, who will be competing online. The teams will each play against the pro team in a best-of-three series, with the two highest-scoring teams playing an additional best-of-five series. The highest-scoring team at the end of the night will take home the prize!

The finals will be broadcast live on Twitch.tv/Halo on Friday the 13th of November from 19:00 CET. Richard Simms and Andy Dudynsky will be providing commentary throughout the evening, with Matt Andrews to discuss Halo 5’s gameplay with the 343 team.
