While the return of fighting games in a big way is exciting, one title has a strong presence. Particularly, the fast rise of Halo is impressive.

These events are subject to changes over the course of the year. While it will be great to see all of these LAN events popping up, fans should watch out for changing travel restrictions before getting too hyped for any specific event here.
