Halogon 4: Polygon vs. The Community (Sun 11/11)


Here in the Polygon community, we like to try and organise frequent events amongst ourselves for those who are interested in playing games together, usually on a game-by-game basis. These are usually based around those games which can support large userbases, such as Vergecraft (hosted by our friends over on The Verge) where the Polygon community are enjoying a tense peace with the other factions. It's war, but it's also fun.

To that end allow me introduce Halogon, our homegrown 'Halo' community which is organised by Mintycrys. And we have a surprise for you this Sunday.

We have some of the Polygon overlords who want to play Halo 4 with you, the Polygon/Halogon community. That's right. This Sunday, we will have the likes of Christopher Grant, Brian Crecente and company online to frolic in a number of exciting online gametypes.

Are they any good? Who knows? But it's all about good, old-fashioned BTB fun!


Easy, just send a friend request to the Halogon gamertag at GT: "PolygonHalo" in order to play with us on Sunday afternoon! If the volume of people interested in playing is too large however, then we'll set up a second pool of players on our secondary Halogon account so we're able to accomodate large groups playing throughout the day.

Please only send a friend request to 'PolygonHalo' if you plan to play, this'll make sure we've enough open slots for folks to join throughout the day.

In the interest of ensuring that our friends around the world can join the fun and play, play time begins at 3:00 pm EST/8:00 pm GMT. We'll be setting up a number of custom games to include (but not limited to):

  • Big Team Battle
  • Slayer
  • Capture the Flag

So just send your friend requests our way, and we'll see you on Sunday! For up to the minute news on Halogon follow our event Twitter feed, alternatively comment below and we'll answer any questions you might have there as well.
