Halo: Reach Tournament First-Round Results

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

Last Friday's first-round of our Halo: Reach tournament went off without a hitch (except, of course, a couple late dropouts and one power outage). For three hours, the Bitmob community kicked the snot out of each other and loved it (except, of course, anyone who played against Sensei Squushy and his Alpha Team).

Here are the first-round standings and the scheduled matches for tomorrow's semifinals and finals, where Bitmob will be giving a copy of Halo: Reach Legendary Edition to each member of the winning team.

The winners of the finals should email me,, with their addresses. Dan Hsu of the Wolverines is not eligible for prizes, so if his team wins, the best player on the losing team will get his copy.

And thank you to everyone else for participating. No one should feel ashamed by their performance…those are four very good teams.

Halo: Reach

*The match between Bravo Team and Echo Team ended as a draw, as both teams won one match in the best two-out-of-three before calling the game because someone had to put their kid to bed…I mean in the name of good sportsmanship.
