Halo Survivor Announcement and Sign-Up

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Halo SURVIVOR!




Halo SURVIVOR will be a contest pitting members against each other in Halo 5: Guardians. They will have to Out Wit, Out Play and Out Last their fellow players in order to reach the final pairing. They will then have to rely on the very players voted off or eliminated before them to decide which of them will be the ultimate survivor, and take home the grand prize.

One of the prizes that will go to the winner will be a copy of Halo Wars 2! The top two finalists (including the victor) will also receive a $25 Xbox Gift Card. 
 

The basics of Halo SURVIVOR

 

This will be both a team and an individual contest that will test your desire to win. Depending on the number of participants, teams will have a minimum of 6 players initially and these teams will compete against one another in challenges. There will be a wide variety of challenges, or mini games, that will test players skill, ability to communicate and ability to work together as a team. The losing team of each challenge will be sent to a voting council and have to vote off one of their own members. Depending on the number of players, teams may be broken up and remade as the competition goes on. The contest will continue as a team event until there are only 6 players left. Then the challenges will become individual competitions that will leave only two remaining survivors. The final two players will take voyage of remembrance that will pay homage to all of the contestants that participated in the contest. Following this remembrance a jury made up of the final four players knocked out during the individual challenge and the last three players voted off in the team challenges will hear why each of the two remaining contestants feel they should receive the jurors votes. Once the jury has cast their votes a final ceremony will be held where the votes will be read aloud and the winner of Halo SURVIVOR is announced. The winner will then be presented with his or her prizes and immortalized in our very own 343 Hall of Fame.

 

How the game be played in general

 

Once we have a complete list of willing players, teams will be randomly selected. (There may be an uneven amount of contestants initially and the imbalance will be dealt with depending on the numbers.) Once the teams have been selected they will receive their Team names which will be based off of Halo lore.

 

The Team challenges will take place on the weekends: Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday, and at a time that best allows for members of all countries to gather and compete. The ceremonial 'Team Council' will take place in a specially forged hall that will be used for all of the SURVIVOR votes, functions and final jury voting. Depending on availability of players for each competition, one player of a Team may be allowed to sit out of a challenge if they are unable to be present to an challenge. A contestant may not sit out two challenges back to back. If a contestant is unavailable from one of the parties for a competition the opposing Team will be required to have one of their members sit out of the challenge so the participating Teams are equal in number. If a contestant repeatedly does not show up for challenges, they will be removed from the competition.

 

The challenges will have a variety of strategies required. Some will be skill based requiring all players to participate equally, some will require fellow team members to guide a single player through a blind maze and retrieve required objects, others will need your Team to work together and control as many areas possible within a given time frame. Each challenge will be unique from the others and fun as can possibly be. The individual challenges will fit the range of contestants competing in them.

 

How do you play as an individual in a team contest?

 

Players may want to join together and make pacts, or coalitions, with one another and formulate strategies to advance your group or eliminate perceived threats to your moving ahead in the game. You may choose to play lone wolf and hope that your self-determination and abilities will take you to the top. This style of play may even be used during the individual challenges to help gain votes should you be one of the two finalists.

 

There will also be a single hidden 'Immunity Icon' that will allow one player to use after the vote has been counted and before being voted off is confirmed. The 'Immunity Icon' will be hidden on "The Island" and a post containing a link to a map will be publicly made prior to the start of the first challenge. This post will also include some hints that will give each contestant a chance at immunity. There will only be one 'Immunity Icon' accepted and that will be determined by the player who first sends me a private message with the exact location and type of item used for the 'Icon'.

 

What will you get for being a participant but get voted off?

 

All contestants that participate and get voted off will receive an award for being part of Halo SURVIVOR. Some of the 'banished' contestants will be used to assist in some of the challenges that require additional support from our members. The final seven members banished from the competition will sit in on each following 'Party Council' and listen in as the remaining contests vote off fellow players. This group of banished players will not be allowed to engage the contestants during the council session.
