This past weekend during MLG’s Halo event, an Xbox 360 failure may have cost a team a chance in the upper bracket finals. During the deciding moments of the upper bracket semi-finals match between Classic and Trigger’s Down, one of the Xbox 360 consoles froze. At the time, Trigger’s Down was leading the series by a score of 2-1. Major League Gaming rules state that if any equipment malfunctions during a game, the match must be restarted and replayed. During the rematch, Classic was able to take down Trigger’s Down and advance to the Upper Bracket Finals, where they were defeated.
The incident was caught on video and can be viewed here.
