Trenchtown Gaming Tournament 21 September Details and Pre-Registration

Trenchtown 21 September_03

The Trenchtown Gaming Tournament on 21 September is a real you against the rest of the world event. On the cards for the day is a ‘Final Farewell’ to FIFA 13, a number of fighting games and a free-to-enter Forza 4 tournament.

The big focus will be FIFA 13, as a week later, FIFA 14 will be upon us, so we’re going out with a bang by offering a minimum cash prize pool for the tournament of R1000 and a copy of FIFA 14. As usual, the more players, the higher the cash prize pool.

The number of fighting games has also been increased for the event. This time there will be four titles available to show off your skills on – Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Injustice: Gods Among Us. Because we’re aware of the number of players that will play multiple titles, we will be dropping the entry fee for entering multiple titles, but this has meant a small reduction in the cash prize pool. We are however working with a sponsor, and hope to offer something a little extra still.

Forza 4 has been added, and while Forza 5 is still a long way away for South Africans, we thought we’d celebrate by offering a free-to-enter 1v1 racing competition. Up for grabs will be a hamper of goodies, and the racing will be open to everyone who fancies their chances. No registration is needed, pitch up on the day or announce your intentions to burn rubber and you’re in.
