Press Release from Bungie.net

"KIRKLAND, WA - April 1st, 2009 - Bungie Ultimate Ninja Gaming League Extreme™ is poised to become the first and only professional gaming league that forces players to wield the true skill-based weapons that Halo 3 has to offer.
Leveraging a massive, global online player base, the Trueskill™ Ranking System, and Halo 3's award winning multiplayer arsenal, including over one dozen pieces of Game Changing Equipment, B.U.N.G.L.E.™ is now the premiere and only video gaming league that features professional play using the blockbuster title, Halo 3, with cornerstone events planned in every major city the world over.
And regional play is only the beginning. With the annual Super Summ3r Jam Extreme™ held in the beautiful port city of Dubai, UAE, B.U.N.G.L.E.™ challenges players to put the final stamp on their season by entering a winner take all World Championship Event featuring the world's top-tier players and a once-in-a-lifetime shot at a Multi-Million Dollar World Championship Face Off, where fame and fortune will hang precariously in the balance.
Starting now, an all new set of Matchmaking Playlists, dubbed The New Matchmaking Experience™, will be rolled into Halo 3’s Multiplayer lineup. Over the next few months, teams will make and shatter alliances, scrambling to get an early handhold along the climb to the upper echelon of the Professional Gaming League, where fame, fortune, and licensing endorsements await.
You'll have to learn where every pair of Brute Spikers spawn, determine how to best utilize every Shield Door to your tactical advantage, and rework your map strategies to outwit opponents armed with Power Drainers and Radar Jammers. If you want a shot at Super Summ3r Jam Extreme™, you’ll need to test your mettle and might in these all new B.U.N.G.L.E.™ Professional Gaming Playlists first.
