EGE | Advanced Warfare (Xbox One) Registrations

EGE_Flyer_01 (2)

As you may have heard, we’re heading to the heart of the ‘big’ city with our next Call of Duty Advanced Warfare tournament on Xbox One. It’s part of the Electronics & Gaming Expo and part of a slightly bigger competitive component than usual for us. Thankfully we have some friends in our endeavors, making this a real showpiece for zombie/human relations.

Herewith, we open the registrations for the Call of Duty tournament on Xbox One.

The tournament will be run over two days – Saturday 30 May and Sunday 31 May. A group phase will be run on the Saturday, with the top eight teams playing on Sunday in a knockout phase. Any players or teams available on the Friday may pre-register their equipment and themselves for the action on Saturday. Also on the Friday, we want to encourage community interaction with players, even allowing them access to play with or against some of the teams and players. Teams and players in attendance on the Friday will also be able to scrim in preparation for what lies ahead.

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:
