WELCOME TO BEYOND THE STICKS

Millennial Esports is happy to announce the return of a time honored Halo tradition, the pre-tournament bootcamp. For Halo, bootcamps date back to 2005 when Team 3D invited up and coming Halo teams to train with them before major events. The practice grew and multiple top teams adopted bootcamps into their training regiment. At their peak bootcamps would involve as many as six teams, who would descend on Chicago to practice at the LAN Network compound.

OVERVIEW

Beyond The Sticks will bring two of the top Halo teams to Las Vegas for an all expenses paid training session. On July 1st & July 2nd EnvyUs & Oxygen Supremacy will engage in an exhaustive bootcamp at the Millennial Esports Arena. The teams will play four 13 game series in preparation for Dreamhack Atlanta. Fans will be able to watch all the action at twitch.tv/MillennialEsports. Millennial Esports will also be taking the players on two team building activities outside the Arena. Those at home will be able to follow along on Instagram stories. Finally all of the action will be hosted by two of Halo's greatest personalities, Ryan Towey & Tom "Tsquared" Taylor.
