Hey you guys, I was thinking of going professional with Halo 3... I've never played professionally before, and looked into it a few weeks ago... I don't like the fact that MLG has such a strict set of rules on weapons and shields and such... So I was thinking... Why not start my own league? The only problem, of course, would be the prize money. I'm sixteen years old, and I don't have money like that to give away. So why not have all the contestants pool their money, and winner can take all? Think about it... If ten teams of four players each entered, and each player put in 25 dollars, then the prize money would be a 1000 bucks. That means that the winning team would get 1000 dollars, which, for those math challenged people, is 250 a player. The only flaws in my plan are the following: 1. There would have to be alot of trust put into this for it to work. Seeing as this is going to be done over Xbox Live, people can get away with not paying up alot easier. 2. Also, if everyone is trustworthy, how to get the money to the winners? What if one team member lives in New York, another in Texas, another in California, and another in Colorado? Anyway, guys, thought I would throw this out there, see what you guys think. I would appreciate some help with the flaws listed above. Thanks! -r3d

if the games are done over xbox live than the integrity of the host will matter too much

3. If you're getting into this to make money for yourself, giving away all the prize money will leave your pockets quite empty... 4. Becoming a video game professional requires a lot of the same concepts as becoming a professional athlete. Different people are born with a different aptitude (reaction times, quick decision-making, thin slice recognition), and you can't just choose to become a pro.

Last year my friends and I started to realize we were getting pretty good at Halo 2 and decided we were gonna try to go pro. After a few months you realize how much time you DONT have to dedicate to getting as much play time as the pro's do. I was 22 at the time. With a girlfriend, a job, school, a life, it makes it difficult. you are young so i'm sure its not a big deal for you to come home from school everyday and sizzle on the controller for 6 hrs a day and not have to worry about a job and bills. If your parents aren't forcin you to get a job than go for it brother!!

Misconception #1: The pros play more than everyone else. Reality: The pros play 'better' than everyone else. That is, when pros practice, they know how to work on their game so that they get the most out of every second spent in game. All that shit you just listed? It applies to almost all of the top tier pro players as well. The OGREs? They're in college, they have girlfriends, and they have a job - their job is raping at Halo. Yours isn't, and a legitimate excuse is not "I have a life, I don't play as much as they do." Because they don't play that much, except in the week leading up to tournaments, when they ramp up their practice time to get ready.

So you're saying that the reason they make money in Halo is because the make making money in Halo their job...and they're badass.

3. That's why I got the idea of pooling the money together

4. Well, you can choose to. MJ chose to become a pro, Tiger Woods chose to become a pro. Granted, they are both very talented, but they weren't just born with that skill. They practiced hard, and often. Being born is only half of it.

Well, I do have a job, but I don't have to pay bills. I know I'll have to dedicate alot of my life to practicing, and I think that at least until I graduate next year, I can do that. Anyway, I think its worth a shot. Who knows? I may be famous one day.

The Ogres are 20 years old. They have been kicking ass since Halo 1 5 years ago. When they were in high school and had nothing else to do. Now they are in college (with internet access) and have girlfriends and Halo is their job.

I think to be a pro at Halo (or at the most very good at it) you have to go through a good "Rotting" period. Where you are playing for a ridiculous amount of time for 6months to a Year (just IMO) and of course finding teammates that play well with you

From that point I think you can manage with casual playing and some serious buckle-ing down 2 weeks before a tournament.

I agree.

Gamertags with the name Sniper in them make me cringe.

Try CO x R3dneck

First of all: Halo hasn't exsisted for fifteen years. Secondly: If I do become famous, you're right, the name'll have to change. The only reason I picked the one I have is because I'm from North Carolina, and I love to snipe (in games). When I make the change, I was thinking "Reaper" or "The Last Gunman"... Just thoughts...
