you know you'll be eager to make maps and game types in Halo 4 forge, this
contest is for you.

a member already you must apply for membership to our group here: http://www.midlandbase.net/recruitment

failure to pay attention to detail.

Do you like Halo? Do you like LIKING Halo? Do you
need to be a part of a Halo group that feels the same way?
Then Midland Base is the place for you! We're a
group of mature gamers that specialize in making Halo what it was meant to be!
While we love to just sit back and play Halo, we first make sure that we create
a comfortable environment for all of our members. Imagine, if you can, Halo
without flame wars, ****, name calling, betrayals for weapons, or players
going AFK through the match. Instead, we have laughs, good sportsmanship,
camaraderie, and lively debate. Check out our mission statement here.

players who t-bag first. Hey, we aren't monsters!
