EGE | FIFA 15 (X360) Registrations

EGE_Flyer_01 (2)

**UPDATE**

Games On Gaming Lounge in Rondebosch, Cape Town has added to the prizes for this event. For both the main FIFA 15 tournament and the schools tournament they will give the winner of each a 3-hour time voucher for use at their venue, and second place will each get a 1-hour time voucher.

**ORIGINAL**

The final tournament registrations are now open, and this is one for the FIFA players.

FIFA 15 will feature two tournaments over the weekend – one is aimed at players of school-going age only (on the Friday), while the other is open to everyone and will run over the Saturday and Sunday. All FIFA 15 tournaments will be run on Xbox 360 with all equipment supplied.

Friday Schools Tournament

No pre-registration is needed for this, but entries will be restricted to 48 players. Any school pupils wishing to participate must be at the registration desk by 1pm and matches will start at 1:30pm.

No additional fees will be charged – so if you’re at the expo already (whether by paid entry or complimentary ticket) and you are still a school pupil, you can play. The tournament will be a double elimination one and prizes will be product related.

Saturday and Sunday Tournaments

The tournaments we are hosting on the Saturday and Sunday will feature a cash prize pool for the top eight players overall. Entry is R100, and this entry includes your access to the expo itself for the day.

In a change to our original announcement – and due to a number of community requests – we will host four different qualifying events over the two days, with the top two players from each qualifier needing to play in a double elimination bracket on Sunday afternoon for their share of the cash. That means, the qualifying players from Saturday will need to be available on Sunday afternoon to play again (no additional entry fee will be applicable).

The four qualifiers will be limited to 32 players each, and have been staggered to offer more people an opportunity to participate at a time that suits them. Each qualifier (or pool) will start with a four-player (per) group phase with the top two players from each group progressing to a home/away playoff. The finals of each qualifier (or pool) will help determine seeding for the ‘Championship Bracket’ on Sunday.

Players participating must indicate which qualifier (or pool) they would like to participate in, but it must be noted that each pool has a 32 player limit. Players may sign up again if they wish to (and if there is space available in another qualifier) but an additional entry fee of R100 will be charged.

  4. In a specific round (and when applicable) you have to play both legs with the team that you picked for the 1stleg

Should scores be tied after two legs, classic extra-time will be played, followed by penalties.

No controlling of the keeper by means of the ‘Select’ button

No passing at the back. If you suspect your opponent of breaking this rule, pause the game and alert one of the admins. Should you wait until after the game, the result will stay as is, as there is nothing for the admins to rule on.

No cursing, shouting, bumping or distracting your opponent.

Pause the game only if you have the ball and have given your opponent a heads up if you are going to pause. Both players must agree they are ready to resume the match.

The ball must be passed back once before you can cross in to the opponents half, you cannot run in to his half straight from kick off.

If you set up your controller, please save it on temporary assigned slot.

It is up to you as player to check your controls before the game starts, the admins and organisers will not be held liable for controllers that are not set up.

Should a console freeze alert one of the admins. If it is still in the 1st half the game will be replayed full but the game continues from the score upon which the screen froze. If it froze in the 2nd half the game is restarted and only one half of the game is played and the score is as it was upon freezing of the console.

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:
