It's been a long journey, but we're finally down to our final four contestants! KingNick220 and GreatCesar1 are set to duke it out for the Winner's Bracket Final, and in our Loser's Bracket we have Respectful verses cizzzats. The winners of these two matches will be declared champions of their respective brackets, and will then go on to face each other in the...
As we move into the Semi Finals, we have the map Noro by Tyrant. Forged on the Ravine canvas, this map boasts a bright and sunny environment along with some treacherous waters below, should you take a wrong step and fall to your death. Noro consists of three central atriums with many interesting ways to move about. With a sniper, concussion rifle, and speed boost spread out across the map, players will never feel safe in any one location. Constantly moving and staying on your toes is the key to success on Noro.
The end is nearing... a mere three weeks from now our 1v1 champion will be crowned! Who will be the one that holds their Gamermodz controller aloft? With just 16 players left in the brackets, we will have an answer soon!
We are still accepting submissions for the Top Ten. I'm sure you have all had some crazy...
Mmk, so what have we got for you today? Well it looks like we're down to our last 32 fighters. 16 in each bracket, 8 matchups per. Things are finally narrowing down, and if you're still hanging on you've got plenty to be proud of. Fortunately, by now, you're plenty familiar with how this...
Literally the very first image to come up on google upon searching "10,000"
Alright! Well! Today (give or take) marks a very special occasion for the HaloCustoms forum. Any guesses? Well I f*cking hope you don't f*cking guess b*tch because I thought I made myself pretty f*cking clear up until now.
So, back to what I was saying, we've finally reached 10,000 members. According to Wikipedia, 10,000 (ten thousand) is the natural number following 9,999, and preceding 10,001.
Hey everyone! Quick update on the 1v1 Tournament. It still seems as though some participants are having difficulty organizing their matches, regardless of the amount of time given to complete them. So, we're going to need to shake things up just a little bit!
The main problem arises when dealing with secondary matches. In several cases, players in the loser's bracket will have moved on to their secondary match for a given round, only to sit around and wait for their opponent. This is unfair to those who have finished their first match early and want to set up their secondary match before it's too late. So, here's our solution:
We've gone ahead and posted the last of the secondary matches for Round 4. This round has been extended to Saturday, August 24th at 11:59 pm...
Hello, Gents. These words officially mark the end of Round 3 of our wee little 1v1 Tournament. Things are ing up with only 64 contestants remaining! (Including myself. Be afraid. )
- Round 4 has now Begun -
Now, with Carbonite all used and abused, its onto the next map. Those who have been keeping up to date, already know what it is. But regardless, lets remind ourselves what is in store for Round 4.
You should now (or in the very near future) see a notification taking you to your match up thread. Make sure you have the following downloaded and organise a time to get down and dirty.
Hey there everyone, just a quick apology from us staff. Somewhere in this round, we missed out a few matchups in the Loser's bracket. Those matchups have now been posted, but we apologize for missing them earlier. Won't happen again, I swear!
In the meantime, Round 4 will be slightly delayed to give these six players enough time to finish their matches before it begins. The delay shouldn't be too long, but the players have until Friday at 11:59pm CST until they are automatically moved on to the next round. For those unaffected by this mix up, your matchups should be organized by the end of the day.
First of all
It's finally here! Yes, the Top Five have had some delays, but it's finally here. However, due to the somewhat low number of clips we received, the Top Ten has been bumped down to a Top Five. Additionally, since the amount of matches being played and the opportunity for awesome plays will only decrease as the tournament goes on, Round 2-9 will all have a single Top Ten released at the end of the tournament. So take your time, choose your clips, and earn something cool! And since the next Top Plays will be cumulative, we'll have some even cooler prizes to dish out as well!
Most of all
Congratulations to Z3R0FLAME for having the #1 best clip of the...
Herro everyone! This update officially wraps up Round 2 of our 1v1 Tournament. In this round both friends and foes were made (mostly foes) and 128 contestants are still up to fight for fame, fortune and prizes of course sponsored by gamermodz.

Let's keep this party started!
It is of course accompanied by an official video provided by TheHaloNetwork that gives you a great overview on what's to come. Personally, I will crouch through that window all day in my match (thanks Dax).
As always you and your opponent will be automatically matched in a thread, you will receive notifications when the...

Welcome, potential challenger.
A little while back we mentioned that we at Halo Customs are aware of your desire to test your skill, and face whatever your skilled opponent can throw at you. We spoke of discovering new arenas, and that fiery competitive need that drives every player. That is exactly what I'm discussing with you now.
Today, we would like to announce the HaloCustoms 1v1 Unity Tournament. After weeks of planning we have found what are, in our opinion, the best gametype and the best maps for this event. Our very own Dax, at the helm of his new Youtube channel The Halo Network, has brought in the help of a man known as Doju, the creator of the popular competitive...
