Earlier this week registration opened for the third Gaming Tournament at Trenchtown in Observatory, Cape Town.
The event will feature tournaments for Halo 4, FIFA 13, Street Fighter IV, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
To go along with the already announced cash prizes for the event, we have had some new sponsors come forward who will be sponsoring a number of prizes – both for specific events and for random giveaways. We have also fleshed out the cosplay aspect for the day.
The cosplay will be free to enter on the day, but cosplayers wanting to compete must be at the venue by 12pm. The players on the day will be voting for their favourite cosplay and we will run the voting until 2pm. While you can attend earlier if you like, voting will only open at 12pm and will run for two hours.
Up for grabs is cash and vouchers to the value of R450 for the cosplay voted as best on the day. R250 cash is being sponsored by Halo Clan ISLB, R100 cash is being sponsored by the zombies, and Krafts by Witch Knight is sponsoring a R100 voucher.
The cash prize pool for Halo 4 has been bolstered by the kind sponsorship of clan ISLB. The clan has offered an additional R750 cash to add to the current proposed prize pool. We will be splitting the cash up for the first three placings and the player coming in first will get R300 extra, while second place will get R250 extra and third place will score an additional R200. That means the minimum cash prize for first place will be R550, which will get more if more players join on the day.
The cash pool prize below is the base prize pool and excludes the sponsored amounts from ISLB.
|CASH PRIZE POOL PER GAME|
|1st Place||2nd Place||3rd Place||4th Place||5th & 6th||7th & 8th|
|Minimum: R500 cash prize pool (Requires 8 players at least)|
|16 Players +: R750 cash prize pool|
|32 Players+: R1000 cash prize pool|
|48 Players+: R1750 cash prize pool|
|64 Players+: R2500 cash prize pool|
|80 Players+: R3000 cash prize pool|
|96 Players+: R3500 cash prize pool|
Cheap Codes have joined our list of sponsors for the day and have offered a total of R400 in vouchers to use on their site. We will be adding a R100 Cheap Codes voucher to the first place prize in FIFA 13, Street Fighter IV, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Apex Interactive (who also supply the sponsored Gioteck headsets used by 2upGamers eSports) have kindly jumped on board with goodies for us to giveaway during the course of the day. If you are a player, cosplayer or are there to watch and support the gaming, you will be assigned a number for the random draws which will happen regularly throughout the day – as long as you are still there to collect your prize.
