EGE 2016 | King of the Hill Details

EGE_King of the Hill_02

Are you keen to participate in a tournament but think it’s all about pros and you don’t feel quite up to their skill level? You may actually be wrong to think that way, but never fear, we have some opportunities for you to try out a few titles in short and fun mini-tournament that we’re calling ‘King of the Hill’ tournaments.

Some of the titles we will feature include FIFA 16, Street Fighter V, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, Rocket League, Overwatch and more. There may even be a Dota 2 thrown in, or another title and tournaments will feature winner-stays-on, knockouts and other variants and will be played on stage and on the floor. It’s all about seeing what people want. We may throw in a few 2v2s or similar, so you will be encouraged to grab a friend to compete with (or against). Every day over the three days, the titles will vary and we will let you know via social media and announcements in the venue. Entries per event will be limited and open to anyone at the expo.

Up for grabs will be Raru vouchers and sponsored products. The idea is really to get you participating, and winning isn’t everything because we will add everyone that enters a ‘King of the Hill’ event into a random draw for a Raru voucher. OK. Maybe winning is actually everything.

The Details
  • If you have any queries please email: info@zombiegamer.co.za

Zombiegamer operates a ‘fair play’ policy. No cheating, abusive language (or abusive actions to anyone at all) and activity deemed unacceptable to an enjoyable, but competitive tournament, will be tolerated. The Admin or Referees decision is final. Anyone who acts in a way not deemed in good spirit or clearly breaking policies will be immediately disqualified from the tournament. The player identification holders and lanyards are the property of Zombiegamer and are to be returned at the end of player participation in the event. Additional terms and conditions will be made available on www.zombiegamer.co.za. By signing this you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Please note that we will no longer delay the start of events indefinitely. Should you not arrive on time and have not pre-registered, you can not participate. Should you pre-register and arrive late for your scheduled match (attempts to accommodate will be made) your opponent will be issued with a default win. Should that be in the loser’s bracket, you will be eliminated.

Registration fees are non-refundable if you do not attend on the day. Players only qualify for a refund of their registration fee if we are notified of non-attendance at least 48 hours prior to the day of the event.
