The CobaltNova Halo League (CPL) has announced that the $30,000 Winter Event will be a 5x5 CTF event. The group expects the release of Halo for the PC in September, which should give players some time to practice before the event when the CNHL starts up in October.

The administrator of the Myth archive site called The Mill, is calling for users who have been seriously critical of both the Mill's management and the MythDev team, to remove their creations from the Archive. MythDev is the group responsible for the PlayMyth server and the recent patches that temporarily broke compatibility with rival Marius.net's metaserver. Clem says, in part:

If we feel that there are members of this site who have been taking advantage of our free services that obviously have philosophical differences with this site we will take it upon ourselves to remove said person's work from The Mill's archive. We will do this for them to save them from the undue embarrassment that is sure to come from allowing their work to be freely downloadable from a site associated with individuals that they feel so strongly against. We have the full right to do this where this is a private system. We hold the right to remove any and all work from any individual who we feel is not an appreciative member of this archive.

Clem notes that this situation affects those who have contributed to the archive, rather than those who only download from it.

firestorm225, who attended the recent Fanstock event, has put up a forum post at Modzone's gaming forum about the trip. IGN, he says, will have a more in-depth article later.

Some of the tidbits I haven't seen elsewhere: The rocket bugs that affect the Xbox version have been fixed. There will be a demo version available after the release. And coop play is still a possibility for post-release.

Thanks to CobaltNova who posted about it in the HBO Forum.

HomeLan Fed (an outfit that hosts gameservers, and also hosts Penny Arcade) was also at Fanstock; John "JCal" Callaham did a writeup. Thanks Louis Wu.

GameSpy's Sal "Sluggo" Accardo also has a writeup on Fanstock. More tidbits? OK. PC Halo will let you save multiple checkpoints per level. (Hurrah!) More thanks to Louis Wu.

We've collected a list of all the writeups we've seen in the past few days on our Fanstock Articles page.

Here's a list of links to items about the Fanstock event held in August at Gearbox Software's headquarters in Plano, Texas. HBO by Louis Wu Subnova by Shishka Battleground: Halo by Dark Helmet

Randy Pitchford of Gearbox, the man who provided most of the information about PC Halo during the recent Fanstock event, has been interviewed by Computer and Video Games. Highlights include the fact that playing as the Covenant-- originally a central idea in Halo's design, pre-buyout-- was discussed and rejected. And while bots will not be in the game as shipped, the possibility exists for something in the future:

One is that the network architecture was re-written, so if we were to do bots, we'd start it now, which means the product would take even longer. This may still happen - I mean BotMan, the guy who created the foundations for all of the Half-Life and Counter-Strike bots, he works at Gearbox! He sits in that office right over there [points]. We'd like to expose this stuff to mod authors to see what they come up with.

Adding to the list of writeups, Louis Wu has put up HBO's coverage of the Halo PC Fanstock event. It features quite a few photos, and there's a promise that in the next few days there will be screenshots as well. One particlarly interesting tidbit that I didn't see elsewhere:
