It's speculated that this gaming challenge was spawned from Bungie's jealousy of the innate awesomeness Joystiq possesses and its urge to promote the upcoming release of the Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack. The challenge is simple: Bungie's best will battle Team Joystiq for ultimate gaming supremacy. But we need YOUR help.
The team that'll represent Joystiq will be comprised of community members, which is why we're holding an open call for the best Halo 3 players. Ultimately, we'll select nine community members to participate in the challenge. Each chosen member will receive a copy of the Mythic Map Pack and could be awarded Halo 3 Recon armor. Continue past the break for more information and details about how to represent Joystiq in battle.
Four of Bungie's most talented gamers, plucked from its very own development team, will go to war against Joystiq's team of community members in a Halo 3 showdown. This three-game fight to the death will be played exclusively on the new Mythic maps and is guaranteed to be a defining moment in video game history.
What's At Stake
For every game Joystiq wins (which should be all three), all members of that team will be awarded the highly coveted, ever so sexy and über-l33t Recon armor permutation. All participants are guaranteed a Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack redemption code just for participating.
On the flip side, each game Bungie ends up victorious, the Joystiq Xbox editors will be contractually obligated to promote the studio's greatness at E3 2009 by wearing Bungie-branded t-shirts for one day. If they win all three games, that would result in three days of t-shirt wearing at E3 and three days of extreme public humiliation.
