Gaming and virtual communication recently merged when Skype helped bring the HSC Pro League, and Halo fans close together though the power of a group chat.

Gamers united during the HCS Pro League Championship and joined a group chat where Nick “MaNiaC” Kershner of OpTic Gaming, and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins of Renegades answered questions from fans, and gave tips on eSports gaming. Thanks to the group chat the power of Skype, some lucky group chat members even won some cool Microsoft themed products, such as Halo swag and a limited edition Xbox.  In fact, the online crowd even had a chance to join a question and answer session with Halo Champion Tony “Lethul” Campbell from  Counter Logic Gaming.
