EGE | Advanced Warfare (PS4) Registrations

EGE_Flyer_01 (2)

**UPDATE**

Due to slow – and low – registrations for this tournament, we have decided not to offer the PS4 Call of Duty LAN competition. Registered teams have been notified, and they – along with other interested teams – can consider joining the Xbox One tournament. However, that is a bring your own, and we suggest that you contact the Xbox One teams to find out if you can loan equipment on the day.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused by this decision, but we could not see the number of registered teams increasing sufficiently to make the tournament worthwhile.

Why so few PC competitive titles?

  • The cost of the infrastructure and lack of prize pool dictated this. We had to also consider the likelihood of players and teams willing to fly to Cape Town in the first year of the event.

Why no 72-hour casual LAN?

  • Cost of the infrastructure and restrictions by the venue meant allowing attendees to stay overnight was not possible. This will be looked at in future years.

Why must we ‘bring our own’?

  • Unfortunately, we are but zombies (and friends) on a limited budget. To make this happen we decided a bring your own event would ensure enough equipment to operate the various tournaments successfully.

What if not enough players/teams attend?

  • We will be placing a minimum and maximum number requirement for each event, and in the case where the number is less than expected, the tournament will continue, but the expo organisers (Impact Exhibitions) reserve the right to reduce the cash prize pool in those cases.

What if I am underage according to the game rating of the game I want to participate in?

  • We will require your legal guardian to sign a waiver form which can be supplied.

What are the show dates and times?

  • The expo itself will run from 10am to 8pm on Friday 29 May and Saturday 30 May. On Sunday 31 May it will be open 10am to 5pm. The competitive area will have specific times and schedules that will be detailed in the previous registration details.

*FAQ will be updated as more questions are asked… and answered.

If you do feel compelled to make contact with us, we will do our best to answer you. Please be patient as there’s only so many hours in a day and we are also losing our workable limbs…

The following fine people will be working together to make all this happen:
