During Saturday's stream of a match in the Halo World Championship, an interesting occurrence changed the outcome of the tournament completely. We will cover the reactions of the players and what HCS decided to do about it.

Halo seems to have a reoccurring issue in its tournaments, and Saturday's match was no different. The classic shooter has had players rushing to Twitter to voice their dissatisfaction with how the referees of the tournament dealt with a technical issue.

The error occurred in the match between the American eUnited and the French Acend when the score was 7-7 in game 5. The error in question can be found timestamped over on Twitch at this link .

Bran was quick to voice his unhappiness and explain everything that had happened in a series of Tweets.

HCS issued a response to the player's complaints and confirmed that according to the tournament guidelines, the results of the game are final. They stated that the faulty headset was a "player-caused" issue and it does not require a game restart. 

The players did not like this response and were quick to point out that the arguments HCS used were inaccurate while the opponents, naturally, sided with the organizers.

Was the HCS right to give the win to eUnited or would a replay have been more fair? Was the faulty headset a player-caused issue or should HCS have taken responsibility for it?
