This is the 4th installment of the Beachlan series hosted by McDick. Beachlan is the main annual event for Halo Combat Evolved. The teams were formed by pairing the top ranked CE players from the last beach lan with the inversely ranked player there. So 1st seed is paired with the last seed (36th), the 2nd seed is paired with the 35th seed, etc. McDick, Legend, and Droid determined the seeds of the unranked players. This was mainly random, rankings were really determined by basically "have I played with this person before; if not to the bottom." Most notably however was HalasterBlack was given the last seed, to spite Patch (first seed) since they don't get along that well even though Halaster is a pretty good player. The Grand Finals were not recorded due to an issue with the streaming equipment. The computer auto-updated during game 1 (hang em high) of Grand Finals which made the picture for Legend+Jrep just cease during an intense match. It was then decided that it would not be captured or streamed and the Grand Finals restarted.
