While it is understandable that there are setbacks at a live event, the HCS Kickoff Major came close to breaking the patience of many fans. That’s right, the first great tournament of Halo Infinite got off to a rocky start with several technical delays, and the complaints were swift.
Almost every match in the first round was delayed in some way. In both the Chiefs vs. Bing Chilling match and the XSET vs. Spacestation match, players had to log out mid-match and play some maps again. For its part, the start of the Na’Vi vs Divine Mind match was also delayed by almost an hour.
Thanks for sticking with us as we work through these technical gremlins. We are turning over every stone to make sure we resolve the issue and hopefully the rest of the matches on stage go smoothly.

Before the annoyance of the assistants and the fans in social networks, the head of esports of HaloTashi thanked the viewers for their patience as the production team worked with the “technical gremlins” to make sure the next series of matches progressed smoothly.
Despite the complications, the first date of the tournament managed to come to an end on a good note, as the Raleigh Kickoff Major became the event of Halo most viewed of all time. That mark is sure to be surpassed when the playoffs are played this weekend.
Day 1 is in the books – thank you to the fans, players, and talent for your patience and support.
We took many steps to stabilize tonight, and we have a plan of attack in the morning to improve the show and experience even more. This team is working so hard.
Thank you. ❤️
