Halo Spotlight: ATG (Anniversary Tournament Gaming)

I recently stumbled by ATG (a great Halo web site for Halo Anniversary tournaments) and I have to say I loved every minute when I was there. ATG provides gamers who love Anniversary to go head to head in tournaments. There website provides videos, info, great forums to talk your little heart out, and even sign your self up for a tournament! . I asked Derek (admin of ATG) to provide a little write up about his site which you can read down below, it provides great info and what you can expect from ATG. I would like to personally thank  the staff at ATG for this great opportunity to share their great website!

“Dear Elders.TV and Community,
First off, it’s an honor to be here today, featured as part of your Halo Spotlight series. We’re glad to be here, so thanks’ for having us.

So what is ATG Halo all about?

ATG Halo is entire website devoted to competitive gaming for players who enjoy the “Anniversary Classic” playlist (recently added on XBL under the gaming title, Halo Reach).

ATG Halo takes the Halo CE Anniversary experience to the next level. We provide gameplays, montages, forums, tournaments, cash and other prizes to the Halo CEA Community.

The Halo CEA Community at ATG has been growing rapidly. We recently concluded our first 1v1 tournament this past Sunday, January 22nd. Tournament footage is now up on the ATG YouTube Channel and at our Facebook page. We’d also like to take a moment for a quick shout-out to our first 1v1 champion, BC Conker! He faced a pretty intense match-up in the Finals against the player Pox EEEEEEEEEEE but managed to pull-through for the win. Overall, great gaming from both of these players!

With an upcoming 2v2 tournament this Sunday, and 4v4 plans on the horizon in February, ATG offers a variety of tournament sizes for players to choose from. On the ATG Forums players meet up for customs or work to develop the game settings and maps used in the tournaments at ATG Halo. Tournament maps include favorites from the Anniversary Classic map-pack as well as forge, user-created maps. For example, we brought back the long time classic and favorite map, Wizard (Warlock) for gameplay in our recent 1v1 tournament.

The ATG Halo website and our tournaments get the entire community involved. Whether it’s developing forge-maps, tournament settings, conducting polls, sharing video, refereeing tournaments, or providing website-feedback. The members of the ATG Community have a voice that is heard. At ATG Halo, we want players to enjoy gaming and tournaments to the fullest extent possible. Every tournament should become a memory and an experience. It’s not always about winning or losing. It’s about learning from every experience and having a chance to share what you’ve learned with others. This is how we all get better together, as a real community. But of course…a cash prize now and then for your work feels good too ;)

Sincerely,

- The Staff at ATG Halo (Frequency, NugZ, Pox, Remix)”

What do you Think: Halo 2 Anniversary?

Halo: Anniversary in my book was a huge hit, and it was a great way for 343 industries to tell Halo fans they got Halo under control. 343 has hinted maybe at a Halo 2 remake, but could this really happen? Halo 2 started one of the best multiplayer games of that time. Halo 2 was fun, amazing, and I think put Halo on the map. But will making Halo 2 Anniversary too much? What I mean is it a good thing for a game company to keep on doing remakes. I guess we will see in the coming years.
