Want your chance to compete for a prize pool of one million US dollars? Thought it was all a dream and that South Africa would always be excluded? Well, you already know your chance is here. Now you really need to prove you want it. And this is how you will need to go about it…
Be ready to play more Black Ops in one half day than you’ve ever done before, because from 3pm on Sunday 17 March you will be thrown into what might well be South Africa’s fiercest and most insane Black Ops 2 tournament ever.
Up for grabs for you and your four man team (no substitutions allowed) is an all expenses paid trip to LA to compete for the winners cheque at the Call of Duty Championship from 5 April to 7 April. As a little bonus, the winning South African team on Sunday will receive an additional $1000 to use as spending money.
The players in the team have to be at least 18 years old on Sunday, and you will all need a valid passport, as well as time off to participate. You will be responsible for obtaining your US visa and must be a resident of South Africa.
Sign ups are open to the SA qualifiers until [13:00 – Update] on Sunday, and as mentioned the games kick off from 3pm and will be run by Mweb Gamezone and a small army of admins, while being monitored by the CoD Championship organisers the ESL and Megarom. Each round is expected to happen every 90 minutes, but we suggest all entrants be constantly at the ready in case time your opponent is available a little earlier. The tournament will be a single elimination event, so bring your ‘A’ game from the start.
The rules and other information are now available via the ESL SA CoD website… or below.
South African console clans: your time is now, don’t miss out . Get registered now.
