Giant Bomb Fight Night

Posted by Coombs (3449 posts) -

So I've been wanting to do this here since I joined but have been to busy, What with X-mas and all.
What I want to do is organize a weekly Fight Night event,
The basic plan is to have a Big 16 man FFA match on HALO 3 Every Friday at the same time.
(I've done this elsewhere & its alot of fun) 

It would be 3 ten minute matches with no score limit, Whoever has the most kills after 10min wins the round.
Each round will be on a different map Custom made for these events (More on that later)
Once all 3 rounds are done the winners of each round go to the "Trifecta", 
In which only the 3 winners play and they each have 3 lives, The last man standing wins. 
 
And now some specifics:
The first match will be on Friday January 8th at 10pm PST  (Open to discussion)
All of these matches will be recorded and a highlight reel will be posted each week
 
Of the 16 player slots, 5 will be reserved: 
-1 for the winner of the previous week
-3 for the 3 people that made the maps that were voted for that week
-1 for me, Because Im organizing & recording everything
Which means there will 11 open slots for everyone else, First come first served basis.
 
If you want to be a part of it all you have to do is:
1. Send me a friend request my Gamertag is xAAx Coombs
2. Be online at the specified day & time (Invites will go out at EXACTLY the specified time) 
--Invites for reserved spots will go out 5 minutes before the mass invite
3. Be one of the first 11 people to accept the Invite
 
Map selection will be by vote:
Each week you will be able to vote which map you most want to play,
The 3 maps with the most votes will be the maps played that week.
 
Maps Custom Made for this: 
All the maps for this will all be custom made,
I could do this myself, But my taste in a FFA map and yours may be very different, And I want everyone to have fun.
So what I want to do right now is hold something of a contest, I need to enlist all the skilled mapmakers here,
All you have to do is make a map, you can use any map you want, Just set it up for  16 man FFA Slayer
Then PM me a link to the Bungie.net download page for your map.
I will check out all the maps submitted, any I think would work well I will make a short video of and put up on here for you to see,
We will hold votes to determine which maps will become the "Official"  GBFN (Giant Bomb Fight Night) maps.
We will end up with one custom version of each map. These will be the maps which are voted for each week. 
You will of course get full credit for being the mapmaker, and if your map is voted for that week, you have a reserved slot.
 
When submitting your maps they must fit this criteria: 
1. They must be named:   GBFN "your maps name"                    Ie: GBFN mybestestmapever
2. They must be setup for 16 man FFA Slayer                               Make sure your spawn points are setup properly
3. You must link the Bungie.net download page for your map   Ie: Foundry Canvas
4. They must be original or downloadable HALO 3 maps, NOT ODST maps
 
Happy mapmaking and I look forward to seeing what you guys come up with.
