Red Bull is bringing back their Rise Till Dawn event on Saturday, July 13 for a Halo 3 throwback tournament, with a $10,000 grand prize on the line – here’s how you can catch all the action.

Rise Till Dawn takes its name literally, as the competitors will be playing through the night, ‘from sundown to sunrise’, from the Willis Tower in Chicago.

Last year’s Rise Till Dawn tournament was headlined by streamer Tyler ‘Fortnite took over the 99th floor of the Willis Tower, but just in time for Halo Infinite, the legendary Halo 3 is the game of choice for the 2019 event.

The tournament will begin at dusk, quite literally – expected to be around 8:30pm local time (6:30PM PT / 9:30PM ET / 2:30AM BST). In-keeping with the name, the tournament won’t stop until sunrise – approximately 5:28AM CT.

If you can’t be in attendance, the event is being streamed live on both Mixer and Twitch – we’ve embedded the Twitch stream below for your convenience.

To match the prestige of the classic game, some legendary names will be on screen too, with David ‘Walshy’ Walsh casting, alongside Tom ‘Tsquared’ Taylor, Andy ‘Bravo’ Dudynsky, Kyle ‘Elamite’ Elam and Jon ‘Fallout’ Kefaloukos.

Developer’s 343 Industries are partnered with the event, through their grassroots program, which was launched in November 2018 to support the Halo community directly, working with tournament operators and content creators.

What’s the format?

The Halo 3 tournament is a 2v2 event, with a total of 200 players competing in a Swiss-style group stage. All matches are best of one’s of Team Slayer, with points earned per win. 

The top two from each group advance to the bracket, where best of three matches will determine the eventual winning duo.

First place at the event will net themselves $5,000 to split between the duo, with $3,500 for second and $1,000 for third.

The full list of participants is not yet available, but we imagine some seasoned players will be in attendance at the Chicago event.


Cloud9 return to competitive Halo with star championship roster

Cloud9 have announced that they are re-entering the Halo competitive scene with a new roster stacked with experienced, veteran talent that has won it all.

The prominent esports organization had been absent from competitive Halo since 2016, as their third tenure in the scene was ended after several players left for Team Liquid.

Now, C9 are back in the fold, announcing a new, veteran lineup that’ll lead them back into the esport as the series’ next major title – Halo Infinite – is set to release in early 2021.

Cloud9 Halo roster:

  • Braedon ‘StelluR’ Boettcher
  • Zane ‘Pznguin’ Hearon
  • Kevin ‘Eco’Smith
  • Jonathan ‘Renegade’ Willette
  • Emanuel ‘Hoaxer’ Lovejoy (coach)

All four players formerly featured for the North American-based team Turning Point, which disbanded after all four left in May/June of 2020. The only player who was part of that lineup that’s not been included in C9’s new roster is Swift Kill.

StelluR and Eco, formerly of Splyce and Team Liquid, bring valuable championship experience to the squad after winning the Halo World Championship in 2018 and finishing third the year prior.

Renegade was also part of that Splyce team that won it all in 2018, and he holds the distinction of being the only player ever to have championships in both 2v2 and 4v4 Free-For-All. Last but not least, there’s Pznguin, who rejoins StelluR and Eco after the trio achieved strong success with Team Liquid in 2017.

Kevin ‘Eco’ Smith said in a video released by Cloud9 that he’ll be acting as In-Game Leader.

The team will be coached by Hoaxer, who’s been around competitive Halo since 2011. His coaching accolades include a third-place finish at the HCS Finals in 2018 and fourth-place at the 2018 Halo World Championship.

Cloud9 have yet to reveal the details of their plans to ease back into the Halo scene, so it’s unclear when this new roster will make its debut. But with Infinite set to release in 2021, following a delay, it’ll be exciting to see this championship lineup flex its muscles sooner or later.
