T-Fest | 29 November Details

T-Fest_Nov 2014_04

On 29 November we mark the end of the 2014 T-Fest season with a bang. We plan to let you socialise, shop and shoot at Trenchtown in Observatory, Cape Town. And the best thing is that it won’t cost you anything.

As with all the T-Fest events, this is not a purely eSports driven events, and is a celebration of gaming, socialising, markets, cosplay and more, and we would love to see you all attend and support us, because without your support, there’s no reason for us to do the events.

The event will feature as many shooters as we possibly can, but we will also be showing off a few other genres for those that find the violence all a little too much to handle. Alongside the gaming, there will be vendors, a screening area, a surprise or two and a prize for the ‘best-dressed’ soldier or shooter-themed character…

As things update, we will let you know. We also suggest keeping your eye on our Event Page on Facebook where we may make a few reveals too.

Activities

Market

There will be a variety of stall holders all offering their own unique – and in many cases – hand-made items, including art, home-ware, jewelry, clothing and more that should appeal to you and your lifestyle.

Some of the vendors confirmed for this event:

Gaming

All equipment needed for the gaming will be supplied, so you can just arrive and play.

Free Entry Tournaments

Evopoints_220All the tournaments will be free-to-enter and up for grabs will be cash, products and vouchers consisting of Evopoints items, tattoo vouchers and more.

On 29 November, we will feature tournaments and high score challenges for the following games:

The Shooter Competition

This will (at least, we plan for it to) feature both Call of Duty Advanced Warfare and Halo 2. Both will be free-for-all and points will be awarded across both games (and a potential secret third ‘title’) to find the overall ‘Ultimate Shooter’.

Arcane Tattoo Parlour

  • Time:
    • Registration: 1pm.
    • Matches: 2pm.
  • Cost: Free.
  • Prizes: Top three will win cash, vouchers and other prizes.

**UPDATE**

Following tests on Halo 2 from the Master Chief Collection we have decided to switch to Halo 4 on Xbox 360. Unfortunately, Halo MCC has no LAN option currently and the matchmaking is not working well enough to play online. We will however have The Master Chief Collection on demo during the day.

Sunset Overdrive

It missed out last month due to an embargo, but we’ll put it on display for you to try.

  • Time: From 1pm.
  • Cost: Free.
  • Prizes: Just play it and be entered into a draw for vouchers and other prizes.

Xbox_01The Gunstringer

Pew-pew on the Kinect… because we can.

  • Time: From 1pm.
  • Cost: Free.
  • Prizes: Play the game to be entered into a draw to win vouchers and other prizes.

Forza

Not everyone likes shooting stuff, so set a lap time, and stand a chance to win.

  • Time: From 1pm.
  • Cost: Free.
  • Prizes: Fastest lap will win vouchers and other prizes.
General

We will also demo a number of titles, including Titanfall (internet and servers permitting), Destiny, Advanced Warfare running at Ultra HD and plenty more. You never know, you may just fall in love with a game after you’ve tried it.  We certainly hope that might be the case, so if you’re tempted head over to our affiliate and grab them for yourself.

Cosplay

Logo with Text_AWhile cosplayers will be welcome in any form, this month we really want to get to celebrate the theme, so the competition will be the best-dressed, most authentic looking character from a shooter.

We will judge the winner at around 5pm, and up for grabs will be prizes which include vouchers from Krafts By Witch Knight and more.

Other Activities

As always, we will set aside space for card games and board games, if any players arrive.

Rebel Monkey_01Rebel Monkey will again be hosting the popular colouring-in competition, which runs the entire day. Prizes shall be dished out to the person (or persons) most capable of staying within the lines.

Odd Customs will be hosting an introduction to drawing and those will be at 2pm and 4pm.

Face painting and nail painting will again be on the agenda, so if you want to look like a horror, then you still have a chance.

We will be featuring movie screenings throughout the day. Expect guns, explosions and probably some cheesy one-liners.

The Anime Trading Station by The Genshiken Society of UCT should be there too, so bring along a flashdrive. The gaming and anime quiz is also likely to make a return under their name and will be a team-based one this time. Minimum of two players per team required and expect it to start at around 4pm.

Raffles

On the day, and running until the close of the 29 November T-Fest event, we will be hosting a number of raffles. Up for grabs for your ticket will be Zombiegamer T-Shirts, hampers and more. This is the closest we will come to charging for the event, and is completely optional, but supporting the raffles will support the continued operating of these events.

The first hamper that will be raffled off – at R10 per entry – will contain a much sort after Zombiegamer t-shirt (in a size you want), a Zombiegamer mug, a game and a R100 Kalahari voucher. That is goodies valued at around R750 – if not more.

We have also decided to extend our C4 LAN fundraising efforts by continuing the raffle we ran at the Call of Duty event to this T-Fest. R10 per entry gets you in line to win a Zombiegamer t-shirt, Call of Duty artwork by Rebel Monkey, Call of Duty embroidered artwork by Krafts by Witch Knight and a cameo on a chain by Skullaby.

Food and Drink

tt logo_narrowThe venue offers plenty of food and drink options but it should be noted that no food bought outside of the venue may be consumed on the premises.

On the day, you can get a margherita pizza for R30, which is available to T-Fest attendees only.

Please note: the premises does serve alcohol, and no under 18s will be sold alcohol. Anyone caught facilitating under age drinking will be asked to leave.

See You There

Mweb Gamezone LogoWe will update and detail additional information as we draw closer, and hope to see you – both familiar faces and new faces – in attendance. If you also want to bring along your handheld consoles, feel free to, as we can offer you some space to play against each other if you like.

We will also take a break and be planning the way forward in 2015. Your support will drive those plans.
