    As a final send off to Halo 5 we have partnered with Podtacular to throw a fiesta before the highly Coveted Halo: Infinite drops this holiday season. This will be a two part endeavor consisting of a Forge contest and a tournament hosted by our friends over at Podtacular. We couldn't pass up on the great opportunity to host this combo with a grand total of $4000 at stake. I think it'd be hard to not enter for one last hurrah in Halo 5.​

    This will be a map building contest for Halo 5: Forge in which you will be designing maps for the Super Fiesta Game variants found below. Maps will be judged and the top maps will have a chance of being included in the Podtacular Fiesta Frenzy tournament that will follow after judging has been completed, In addition to winning some nice cash/prizes as well.​


    Below are the gamemodes and any differences from that of traditional variants. In addition you may be asking why are there no links to the gamemodes? Well due to a very interesting bug with waypoint and Halo 5 the gamemodes will not show up on waypoint so you will have to download them manually from within Halo 5. All gametypes can be found in the file browser by searching for Godzilla T or Foge in the file browser under gametypes and you should be able to find them accordingly.

    Pod Fiesta Slayer

    Pod Fiesta Oddball
    Carrier shield Percentage 120%

    Pod Fiesta Strongholds
    Scoring frequency 5 seconds
    Score to win 75

    Pod Fiesta 3 Flag
    Carrier shield Percentage 120%

    Pod Fiesta 5 Flag
    Carrier shield Percentage 120%

    Podtacular Super Fiesta Game Modes are meant for 4v4, so please build accordingly!

    Maps must be set up for all Podtacular gamemodes, however you will be able to choose the maps two preferred gamemodes which we will be judging the maps on. If judging decisions become difficult in the end, those 2 gametypes will be explored further into your non preferred ones so plan accordingly!

    Maps must be made within Halo 5 Forge on either PC or xbox

    3 Map submissions per contestant. (More can be submitted, however we will only be including the first 3 unless you specify otherwise)

    Maps can not have been released or made prior to June 29th, 2021. So only New fresh made maps will be allowed

    You will have seven weeks to finish and submit your map. When the submission period ends the judging begins and will end when we review all of the maps.

      Doesn't this put asymmetric maps at a disadvantage for game modes?

      Okay. No neutral flag, just 1 flag at each "base"

      Yep! I was assuming it was some variation of Stockpile from Reach that I was unfamiliar with in H5, but it's just referring to the caps to win. When I downloaded the files, both were 3 points to win so it was confusing to me, but they should be fixed now.
