  1. First MCC Reach tourney was a success! Thank you to everyone who came out. Had a lot of fun hosting and racing! @Le Hefe @Mad Hatter @KINNZE @NukedIceCream @Populare @Rob @Sqeazu FULL RESULTS: Stream VODs: ( ( ( BreakNeck: NukedIceCream would grab the early lead on the first lap, followed by Mad Hatter, Rob, Camonized and Le Hefe. Nearing the end of the 2nd lap, Cam opted the shortcut jump, who collided with Rob on track re-entry, while Hatter lost control entering the lower pass into the split corridor before the tunnel causing a chain reaction pileup. Hatter and Cam recovered 2nd and 3rd respectively, Hefe emerged 4th and Rob 5th. Cam got around Hatter on lap 3 and gained the lead after Nuked also hurtled into the split corrider, Rob died and rejoined the race in last. Hatter spilled around the 2nd corner the following lap and fell back to fifth, Nuked bobbled through the split corridor and handed 3rd to Populare, Cam began pulling away. Hatter would crash twice more in the corridor, eventually handing 5th to Sqeazu. Hefe crashed out of 2nd with two to go and lost two positions. Cam cruised to the win, Populare climbed to 2nd after a last place start and Nuked gutted out 3rd. Top 5: Cam, Populare, Nuked, Hefe, Sqeazu Nuked (pink) struck first on BreakNeck Rob Chokes Gold Trails: Cam hugged the patch of land on the watery start to initially pull into first, only to throw it away 2 sections later. Populare would inherit the lead, followed closely by Hefe , Cam, Nuked and Rob at the end of the opening lap. Cam slipped past Hefe and the two began pressuring Populare, meanwhile 6th-8th were gridlocked in a tight battle. Hefe moved back in front of Cam the following lap while Rob trimmed his gap from Nuked. Populare retained the lead while Hefe and Cam dueled for 2nd, Rob eventually moved past Nuked for 4th. Populare endured the pressure all the way to the final checkpoint, taking the win and the points lead. Hefe brought home 2nd and Cam salvaged 3rd. Top 5: Populare, Cam, Hefe, Rob, Nuked Edward stole the show and briefly the points lead Kinnze (front) got his first taste of racing against experienced, stiff competition Xerosere: Rob avoided the chaos from the first turn to grab the holeshot. Shortly after, Rob relinquished the lead after crashing in spectacular fashion over the step down and rejoined the race in 5th, moving Cam into 1st, Hefe 2nd, Sqeazu 3rd and Hatter 4th. As the early laps played out, Cam and Hefe dueled for the lead, while Sqeazu and Hatter battled for 3rd. Populare continued to make his way up the field after the first turn carnage and passed Rob for 5th, while Sqeazu and Hatter's fight for 3rd allowed Populare to gain massive ground. A few laps later, Cam careened over a berm granting Hefe 1st, but a mistake by Hefe a few turns later immediately closed the gap back up, Populare moved into 3rd. Cam eventually got impatient and wrecked which allowed Hefe to get away. Rob would eventually overtake Sqeazu for 5th and Sqeazu fell to 7th. Hefe earned a convincing win, Cam recovered for 2nd, Populare made it back to 3rd. Points lead splits between Cam and Populare. Top 5: Hefe, Cam, Populare, Hatter, Rob Rob's starts were on point A classic Ionized track saw a classic duel between two SX thoroughbreds Epcot SX: Cam grabbed the lead and immediately created a gap from the field, with Hatter, Kinnze, Rob and Populare trailing through the opening lap. Rob made quick work of Kinnze and made it around Hatter the lap after, Populare also moving past Kinnze. Opening of Lap 3 saw Kinnze obliterate Nuked after passing him for 5th, effectively deflating his race. Kinnze relinquished 5th to Hefe and began to lose sight of the top 5. Around halfway through, Populare flipped in the whoops moving Hefe into 4th, while Rob and Hatter continued to duel for 2nd. Cam checked out and never looked back, collecting a dominating win and the points lead. Rob grabbed a stellar 2nd, Hatter 3rd. Top 5: Cam, Rob, Hatter, Hefe, Populare There was no stopping Cam this time Rob bested Hatter to earn an impressive 2nd place on a highly technical track Sandstone MX: Rob sprinted into the first turn to grab the holeshot, chaos ensued behind him and the top points holders in the tournament were scattered. Rob commanded the opening lap, followed by Sqeazu, Cam, Kinnze and Populare. A four way battle was going down for 2nd and Rob continued to pull away. All was well for the Chigaco native until he over jumped the water rhythm section and kart wheeled out of the lead in dramatic fashion. Cam gained the lead, Rob recovered to be neck and neck with Sqeazu, then Nuked and Populare. A brief mistake by Cam after the finish line created a four way train going into the first large hill, ultimately causing Sqeazu to bobble back to 3rd and for Nuked to flip, moving Hefe into 5th. Populare moved into 2nd the following uphill and kept within sightline of Cam for most of the race. Cam coasted for another win, Populare briefly came under fire from Rob on the last lap but still retained 2nd, Rob closely behind in 3rd. Top 5: Cam, Populare, Rob, Hefe, Sqeazu Rob raced a career performance despite crashing out of a convincing lead The freight train Valparaisa MX: Hefe got a killer jump on the gate and pulled the holeshot, but Cam took the lead and once again began to pull away, with Hefe, Populare, Sqeazu and Nuked rounding out lap 1. Sqeazu would make a mistake inadvertently causing both him and Populare to stall, allowing Nuked into 3rd with Hatter gaining on the top five. Hefe hit a rock and slipped into 3rd, but managed to get back around Nuked shortly after, Hatter then moved into 5th. Cam was gone in 1st, Hefe was comfortably sitting 2nd and a 3 way battle raged for 3rd. Populare and Hatter both navigated around Nuked. Populare held off Hatter in 3rd up, until the last lap when he spun out in the first corner, moving back to 5th. Cam crossed the line and clinched the tournament overall, Hefe claimed 2nd in the final race and overall standings, Hatter completed a come from behind effort in 3rd, taking 6th in the standings. Top 5: Cam, Hefe, Hatter, Nuked, Populare Nuked (pink) and Sqeazu (blue) mixed it up with the favourites once again Hatter (left) and Populare (right) duel for their standings in the final race, albeit for completely different standings Extras: Props to Kinnze for coming out and giving racing a shot! Ay, you-a pretty good-a, see you next time!
  2. For those checking in on the site, we now have a Discord! Join here:

  3. December 28th, 2018, marks my 10th year of tenure on HaloTracks. Instead of just recollecting past memories and stories I've experienced first hand, I want to take this opportunity to allow the community to reflect on the history we've shaped together and relate to my experience. It's remarkable just thinking about how something as trivial as racing 4-wheel utility quads in an FPS would create one of the most memorable experience of my life. The feats our community has pulled off have been nothing short of amazing. The intuitive terrain tracks such as Corners, intricate stunt tracks like Hammerhead, and everything in between, has truly been a privilege to experience, especially with some of the most passionate individuals I've met in gaming. From our website competing with ForgeHub plus other large Halo domains and yet still be standing, to being publicly recognised by both Bungie and 343i, to getting racing in matchmaking; we've achieved so much together as a community. Not just HT, but the racing community entirely. Back in 2008 all I ever wanted was to play RACETRACKS in lobbies where players didn't go backwards and enjoyed racing great maps. Mostly, I wanted to play with people who mirrored my passion and challenge themselves as much as I did. As I look back, I realised I got more than I ever asked for. I never thought I would compete in tournaments with real money and prizes up for grabs, let alone be doing it for a decade. HT has also played an influence in my daily life, as I've met some great friends on this website and I owe them a lot of credit for helping shape me into a better person. Some of those friendships even extended beyond HT and XBL. If it wasn't for HT back in 08-10, I probably would've resourced a pistol and blown my fucking brains out. Because of those extraordinary individuals, I was inspired to keep going, to challenge myself to be the best I could be. From the racers who pushed me to be faster, to the forgers who encouraged me to keep forging, those people taught me a lot about perseverance. Not to mention this forum also taught me a lot of important lessons about respect, discipline and maturity which I will remember until the end of my days. Not every lesson was glamorous and I was often left with a bitter taste, but most of all I learned to appreciate the perspective, even if it was blunt. From Travis (c u l8er) and Robert (killer200o), to Jeff (Le Hefe), Alvin (Masta Hippie) and Aaron (Mad Hatter), the entire HT Staff, along with every friend I've made on here, thank you from the bottom of my heart. I've gotten to play excellent tracks, raced in prestigious tournaments, met great people, made loyal friends and had a hell of a time doing it. It has truly been one hell of a ride and I'll be here until the very end. Until then, there will be another time. -Cameron/Cassel
  4. More pics from another HC tourney which I forgot to post a while ago. I know it's dated, but I figured it would be best to post it anyway. As per usual, members are encouraged to host tournaments on any Halo game. Anyway, here's the recap. Results: @Masta Hippie @Le Hefe @Mad Hatter @tote trays @xTheSully @UnknownRacing32 @Dumb As H3ll Another stacked field. Dumb As H3ll got his first taste of Halo racing on a ruthless stage. xTheSully (purple) and UnknownRacing32 (blue) where neck and neck all tourney long. Tote Trays performed adequately, finishing 5th. Mad Hatter (pink) would get the better of Camonized (gold) this time around. Hatter would snag 3rd over Cam by 2 points. Jedi Masta Hippie (green) had the tournament under control, while Le Hefe (orange) would rebound in dramatic fashion during the final race to tie Masta, giving them a split tournament victory. Sully showed the speed to compete... did UnknownRacing. Tote Trays, the people's wildcard. Dumb put in a valiant effort, despite his inexperience. TransFuzion HC is always a classic, providing great racing along the way... ...and the FUSION coils. The tight confines and sharp banks of Pyrosis HC kept everyone on their toes. R. I. P. in pepperoni. POW was the cheesiest track by far. Who wants to see it's appearance in another tournament? RECAP FOR HC TOURNEY 3 IS COMING!
  5. Unreleased tracks are usually are the original tracks played at their original length. They're either non-existent in the OST or condensed/modified for the OST. I prefer listening to these tunes in their full length, but that's just me. Killer sountrack, regardless.
  6. Been on an ODST binge lately. A lot of the unreleased tracks are pretty hype.
  7. Did someone say ‘Tournament’?

    1. NukedIceCream


      Nope, didn't hear anything

    2. Sqeazu


      I could use a good race

  8. While HT doesn’t officially endorse non-Halo or odd-Halo (Halo Wars) tournaments, they have always been supported for members to host and participate in. There have been tournaments for racing related games such as Forza, all the way to odd games like World Series of Poker. With that being said, I can’t imagine anyone having an issue with Indie Halo games having tournaments. I’m not sure what sort of popularity will arise from upcoming indie Halo titles such as i01, but I would encourage you to at least take a stab at it. I’m sure enough HT denizens are equiped with PCs adequate enough to run these games. Either way, if you find a group to participate in your tournies for these games, count me in. ”If you build it, they will come.”
  9. See you guys before the holidays! Heading back to the Carolinas today. I'll still be on the Discord and the forum. Adios!

  10. Another weekend, another tourney, different game. It seemed appropriate to return the spotlight for a casual-competitive racing experience that has unfortunately been left behind due to the limitations with the newer race gametypes from recent and concurrent Halo titles. Thanks to backwards compatibility, we were once again able to revisit those glory days. There was a tournament, carnage unravelled and 'twas fun. Hopefully get to host another one next weekend! Stream Replay (courtesy of @xEasyTargetx): Full Results: @Edwyrd, @Mad Hatter, @Masta Hippie, @Le Hefe, @tote trays Easy Target (blue) and surprise guest Tote Trays (red) proved to be worthy adversaries for each other. Tote would barely finish ahead of Easy for 6th overall. Jeff (orange) and Hatter (pink) were fast, but Hatter would often get stung by karma and Jeff's luck would run out. Hatter finished 5th, while Jeff finished 4th. King Edward narrowly edged out Jeff by one point in the final standings to take 3rd overall. Hardcore guru Masta Hippie (green) used his consistency and survival tactics to claim the runner up spot, but was bested by Cassel (gold) by a mere 3 points. Tote demonstrated that anybody can win in HardcoreTracks, as he cruised to an upset round win during round 1 of TransFuzion HC. The flying debris obstacles were bound to involve carnage wherever they were featured. Despite usually being redundant, battles for position were tightly knit more often than not. While he didn't dominate, Cassel was the only racer to post a perfect race score of 15 points on Sonic HC. As previously mentioned, Jeff didn't have the greatest of luck. Jedi Master, or the Tortoise from the Tortoise vs Hare tale? The world may never know the truth of the legendary Masta Hippie. What a race. Until next time, folks.
  11. Well I was going to use this screeny for a future tourney banner...
  12. I wanted to host another one of these following the H4BC tourney last friday, but didn't get around to posting another tourney or even get the results up for the previous tourney. It was an eleventh hour decision and the map list was improvised 45 minutes prior to the tournament. Regardless, we pulled a tourney together and everyone had a great time. We also had a bigger turnout! See you next week! Full Results: @Mad Hatter @Kat2BKittnMe @Bean05 @Edwyrd @xEasyTargetx @NukedIceCream Vroom vroom... In his original Halo 3 racing manner, Mad Hatter checked out for an easy win at Outbreak and would go on to be the only racer with 2 wins throughout the tournament. After an early skirmish with Kat2BKittnMe (red), Camonized would run away with the win at Whitewater. Bean05 (green/cyan) quickly made his way to the front early and took with a convincing win on Velocity, despite nearly throwing it away on the final lap. Terrain specialist NukedIcecream stole the show with his dominating victory on Sorrow, in similar fashion to his terrain performance from the previous tournament. Edwyrd (black/blue) emerged victorious after a carnage filled race on Breakpoint. xEasyTargetx (blue) and Kitty showed speed, despite going win-less in the tournament. Or at least Kitty did... A salute to the brave souls who sent the downhill roller-double every lap on Breakpoint.
  13. After quite the incognito period and tournament drought on HT, racing is back! The backwards compatibility update which dropped a couple of weeks ago has opened the door for a nostalgia trip back to Halo 4. Here's a photo recap of the first Halo 4 Backwards Compatibility Tournament. I'll try to make this a weekly deal for as long as I can; Saturday at 7:00pm EST for H4 racing. Hope to see you there in future tournies! Full Results: @Masta Hippie @Kat2BKittnMe @NukedIceCream @xEasyTargetx ...and they're off! Kat2BKittnMe (red) has definitely come a long way since his days as 'masterkitty17'. NukedIceCream (pink) leads Camonized (white) on his way to a wire to wire win on Solitude. xEasyTargetx (blue) going FULL SEND in the first turn of Lioness. With a lot of potential and a little tutoring, Easy could be a factor in future tournaments. That is when he feels like it. Masta Hippie (green) was leading the way for laughs the whole tournament and briefly during the final race on Killshot.
