WTF is right...

the worlds best halo 2 four man team, was signed in "Major Leage (video)Games" (how is this popular.... WATCHING other people press buttons... right :dodgy:) has been signed on a 1million dollar contract, i guess if you really pwn, it pays alot better than your parents make it out to be.... but seriously, who is cookin', cuz somehow, in the chain of events, someone in a high spot was cookin' and said yes to one of the following:

-make a pro gamer leauge
-put it on tv (seriously, its getting its own channel soon)
-pay people money
-what the heck, make it 1 million, cuz its an easy number to write.

heres the story

i never liked ghastings... it always seemed like an uber small version of cs, where everyone rushes, simply because its the best strategy.

on another side note, i knew the guy who did the first greg hastings cash tourny at the iao. www.gamebattles.com is his website.
