Xbox Wire had a chance to speak with a few of them to get their thoughts on the tournament—here’s what they had to say.

Eric “Snip3down” Wrona
Professional “Halo” player since 2008. Winner of multiple “Halo” events and secured the #1 spot at the RTX “Halo 4” Global Championship qualifier.

“I really believe this is a great opportunity for gamers everywhere.  I qualified at the RTX event in Austin, TX.  It is a great feeling knowing I will have the chance to play for something as amazing as this.  Although I qualified, I also competed in the online qualifiers, trying to get a feel for the gametypes and what I might see in the finals.  I also played it like I am trying to win again!

It was the most competitive playlist I had played in a long time, knowing that it might be your only chance to make it to the final event for the 200k first place in an epic 1v1 showdown! I am beyond excited and I tell all my friends about it, and they get excited.  This is the first time’ Halo’ has seen something this big, and we need to tell everyone. “
