Trenchtown Gaming Event | 26 September 2015

TT_Sep_01

Yes, it has been a while since we’ve hosted a Halo event. Well, not that long, but for Halo fans it probably feels like forever. We have however never run a Halo Master Chief Collection event due to issues with stability at launch, but now we feel the time is right.

But on 26 September, the gaming at Trenchtown won’t just be for Halo, but it will also feature two other titles in Injustice: Gods Among Us and (whisper it) FIFA 16. We will be severely limiting the entries to FIFA 16 as that is not the main focus for the day (there will be plenty more in the future), so pre-registration for all titles will required – especially if you want to join the FIFA 16 tournament.

For Halo – which will be Halo 2 Anniversary – we will be trying something a little different, and hoping that it works. While we will be hosting a ‘LAN’ at Trenchtown, any players outside of Cape Town will be welcome to join the tournament via online play. Please note that online players may have to accept some potential issues in trying this out, so if playing online, you will not pay a registration fee, but will be required to register. **UPDATE** Online component cancelled.

The Halo and FIFA 16 will each have an entry fee of R30 per player and there will be cash up for grabs and other items to be confirmed. Both will be played as a double elimination bracket.

For Injustice: Gods Among Us, entry will be R10 but we will be trying out a ‘king of the hill’ concept. R10 buys you in, and like the old winner-stays-on pool games, you will keep fighting as long as you remain undefeated. Defeated opponents can buy in again. The winner at the end of the tournament will be the player with the longest winning streak when we close the tournament at 5pm. There will be a few goodies up for grabs and a small cash prize.

The tournament will share the venue with a monthly market, so feel free to bring the shopper in your family, or more cash to grab a few unique items.

PLEASE NOTE: REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. WALK-INS WILL BE WELCOME ON THE DAY, AS LONG AS THERE ARE SPOTS AVAILABLE.

Pre-registrations will be a necessity for FIFA 16, while the others are to assist with keeping tabs on potential entries on the day. If you register for the FIFA 16 please have the courtesy to ensure you attend as numbers are limited and we have to turn people away once the cap is reached.

**UPDATE** We have hit our original 24 player cap for FIFA 16 and will add players to a waiting list, so they will get first option on cancellations.

  • Please note that by registering you agree to the ‘House Rules and ‘Terms and Conditions’ set out below.
  • Contact cell numbers will allow us to make contact with missing teams on the day and will not be made public.
  • If you have any queries please email: info@zombiegamer.co.za
  • A registration confirmation email may take up to 24 hours to be sent out. If after that time you have not been confirmed, please feel free to email us.
  • Once we hit 24 players for FIFA 16, additional registrations will be added to a waiting list and will get first option if registered player withdraws.

Zombiegamer operates a ‘fair play’ policy. No cheating, abusive language (or abusive actions to anyone at all) and activity deemed unacceptable to an enjoyable, but competitive tournament, will be tolerated. The Admin or Referees decision is final. Anyone who acts in a way not deemed in good spirit or clearly breaking policies will be immediately disqualified from the tournament. The player identification holders and lanyards are the property of Zombiegamer and are to be returned at the end of player participation in the event. Additional terms and conditions will be made available on www.zombiegamer.co.za. By signing this you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.

Please note that we will no longer delay the start of events indefinitely. Should you not arrive on time and have not pre-registered, you can not participate. Should you pre-register and arrive late for your scheduled match (attempts to accommodate will be made) your opponent will be issued with a default win. Should that be in the loser’s bracket, you will be eliminated.

Registration fees are non-refundable if you do not attend on the day. Players only qualify for a refund of their registration fee if we are notified of non-attendance at least 48 hours prior to the day of the event.

Where applicable, 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.

THE ADMINS RULING IS FINAL.
