This week if you are competing in the war games challenge, you will be playing Regicide. A free-for-all game type where the king gets a target put on his head and if killed is worth more points than a regular kill. Keep in mind though, with everyone staring at the king it will be easy to pick off players that decide to just chase the king. You can win without killing the king if you focus on getting the most kills possible, and it helps if you look for players that are engaged in combat with someone else.
Remember, the cut off to get into the first tier to go after the top prize is on Thursday, Jan. 10th, 2012 so this will be the last full week you can play. You only have to get into the first tier to be eligible to win the grand prizes on Spartan Ops and War Games and after the cut off date, the leaderboards reset giving you a chance to win. That still requires you to play a lot of Halo but the most important thing is to have fun!
