With the field of competitors narrowed down to sixteen, we took the tournament back to the original Xbox era. Halo 2 is one of the best console shooters of all-time and the online multiplayer changed gaming forever. Our host Blake "Electronic" Morse was joined by our resident Australian, Sam Chandler. Sam has quite a bit of Halo 2 experience under his belt as he remains one of our top boys for Bungie coverage at Shacknews. This round truly saw some standout performances from MegaMoose64 and KidColt45. With each round of the Shacknews World Championship, the pressure got more intense and that was very true of the first round of day two. Who advanced for a chance to take home a piece of the $50,000 prize pool? Please take a look.
