Call of Duty Advanced Warfare | 18 April 2015 LAN Details

CoD_Kamimodo_Apr 15_01

The time has come for South African console teams to once again show what they’re made of, as we invite you to join us at Kamimodo Esports Lounge in Observatory.

On 18 April 2015 we will be hosting 12 teams in a double elimination event where pride – and cash – will be up for grabs.

Entry to the event is R400 per team (R100 per player), but grabbing an ‘Early Bird’ spot and securing it by paying upfront means teams will only pay R320 – or R80 per player. Early Bird payments will be closed on 10 April, after which teams will be charged R400. No refunds on Early Bird payment will be entertained if you do not notify us by 13 April of your intention to withdraw from the event.

We will be supplying the 16 screens, networking, manpower, labour and area to play in, and players must please bring their Xbox One console and power brick, a controller, headset (or not) and copy of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Please note, that failure to bring the required equipment may lead to you and your team’s disqualification.

Spectators are welcome (and encouraged) and entry is free to watch some of South Africa’s best console Call of Duty players in action. We will host a raffle for R10 (which helps us keep operating) for a prize, so any support would be greatly appreciated.

PLEASE NOTE: A maximum of 12 teams will play on the day, so pre-registration (and final payment to secure you spot) is essential.
