If the population simply isn't there to watch or attend why have a large venue? Seems like a waste of money. The problem likely isn't the venue being picked but simply the appeal of Halo and the interest level in watching it that causes a smaller venue in the first place.
The venue, views, and venue are pretty sad, but the narrative that this is 343's, or the tournament organizer's fault has me scratching my head. Halo is on the decline. It's not the big shooter on the block. 343 pours in money, hence a million dollar prize pool, and yet this is the best we get. A bigger venue would just mean more empty seats. The halo community pushing this story are only hurting a community already on the decline. What does this negativity do to improve or grow the scene?
For people saying, the venue is so small because Halo is on the recline, remember the main area seating tickets were sold out and the comparison to last year.
Everyone who was there last year is still interested in Halo 5..
We are not asking for LoL sized arenas, just for the same one from last year, and not fucking balloon tied to a stone
