EGE 2016 | Schools Day and Tournament Details

This year at EGE 2016 we’re really going to try and tap into the potential eSports and competitive stars of tomorrow by making Friday of the expo all about them. (Don’t worry if your school years have already passed, you are still welcome at the expo on Friday too).

The first thing to note is that all school pupils attending the expo on Friday 29 July will be allowed in for free as long as they are wearing their school uniform.

The second thing to note is that for a limited number of school attendees there will be special tournaments offered for FIFA 16, Hearthstone and Street Fighter V. Alongside the tournaments will be the full expo experience, Friday’s ‘King of the Hill’ tournaments and more.

Maybe if you enjoy yourself on the Friday (and fancy your chances of winning some cash in the tournaments) you will join us for the rest of the weekend by purchasing a ticket via Computicket or even staying the entire weekend by attending the 53-hour BYOC EGE LAN. Whatever you decide, we would like to see you at the expo, so at least mark Friday in your calendar.

The three tournaments on offer for school pupils will not offer pre-registration and interested participants will need to ensure that they are at the relevant tournament areas for registration and matches. Players participating in the Hearthstone must please note that they will need to supply their own device to participate. All tournaments will be limited to 64 entrants and will be single elimination tournaments.

Up for grabs are Raru vouchers for the top placing players.

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.

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.
