Congratulations to you. There was also a host of winners of Raru vouchers, and if you want to see the complete list, you can head here.

*UPDATE*

We’ve decided to add opportunities for you to stand in line and win this great headset. It’s also an opportunity for you to ensure that if you missed opportunities at EGE this past weekend to enter or the event itself completely, you won’t be in the same situation again come EGE 2017.

The entry options below will be added to the expo opportunities – the participation requirements – and a draw will be done for all.

ASTRO Gaming A50 Headset Giveaway

*ORIGINAL*

We’ve been lucky enough to really try and expand on things at the Electronics & Gaming Expo this year. We’ve added a few tournaments, added new elements, arranged a school’s day and more, and thanks to that our partners and friends have joined us in celebrating EGE 2016.

This year, the stage in the ‘eSports Arena’ will be permanently sporting ASTRO Gaming headsets that will be used for competitive matches and even in our ‘King of the Hill’ tournaments. And thanks to that, ASTRO Gaming have said we should give one of you a headset for supporting us, the event and ASTRO Gaming themselves.

Up for grabs is an ASTRO Gaming A50 wireless headset for the platform of your choice. These headsets retail for between R3,999 and R4,499 locally, so this prize is not something to sniff at.

Of course, you want to know how can you win this very handy and quite brilliant piece of kit? Participate. Every person that participates in any of our tournaments (Black Ops 3, Halo 5, FIFA 16, Fighting, Hearthstone, School’s events, King of the Hill and Racing) will be entered into the draw for one of the headsets. This includes everyone that entered any pre-expo qualifiers (online and LAN). On top of that, over the weekend of the expo, we will open an opportunity for those who can’t attend EGE or simply preferred to watch rather than try out things. We want you to play, but if you talk about EGE, that’s important to us too.

Details of the weekend’s entry options will be added to this post and announced via social media.
