2upGamers Trenchtown Gaming Tournament 17 August Details and Pre-Registration

Trenchtown 17 Aug_Poster_03

Trenchtown has made it to its third month in a row, which is pretty impressive right? Following a hugely successful event on 13 July, which saw over 90 players in attendance, the 17 August event will offer more from the 2upGamers eSports crew and friends.

Due to the close proximity of the Western Cape Provincial event, the Trenchtown 17 August event will offer an alternative option for first-person shooter fans on console, along with returning favourites and some new additions.

On Saturday 17 August, you can join us for Halo 4 (Free-for-all on Xbox 360), FIFA 13 (on both Xbox 360 and PS3), Injustice: Gods Among Us (PS3), Street Fighter IV (PS3) and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (PS3). The Street Fighter IV and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 competitions will be operated by our good friends from Cape Town Showdown.

The choice of Halo 4 is due to the current ‘Global Championship‘ running which boasts a prize pool of a mammoth $500,000. We obviously can’t match that unfortunately, but we can assure you will have a fantastic experience.

All the games are about individual skills and abilities this time around, and if you happen to be one of those impressive individuals, you can share in a minimum prize pool of R2000.There will also be some sponsored products up for grabs in random giveaways.

Registration for the event is R60 per player per game, but if you pre-register, you will only be charged R50 on the day. For an extra R30, you will get a margarita pizza chucked in. To make registration run smoother, we urge you to pre-register (select the tab above to do so), and to bring along the correct amount for payment – that way your time in the queue will seem to fly by.

There will also be a cosplay competition happening on the day as well as a few stalls to check out, so you should be pretty entertained. The best cosplayer on the day (as voted by the participating gamers) will win a R100 voucher from Krafts By Witch Knight and R100 cash from Zombiegamer.
