Trenchtown Gaming Tournament | Black Ops 2, FIFA 14 & Injustice Pre-Registration & Details

Trenchtown_Oct Event_03

The October edition of the Trenchtown Gaming Tournament is going longer than ever before. Two days in fact. We wanted to say goodbye to Black Ops 2 and welcome in FIFA 14, and decided, why the not do o over two action packed days? “YES!” we said to ourselves, and so it shall be.

On 19th and 20th of October, Trenchtown will host the Black Ops 2 and FIFA 14, and for good measure, we’ll chuck in a little Injustice: Gods Among Us too. We might add a few more games still, but if we do, you will be the first to know.

19 October

Black Ops 2 is the game of the day. We will be hosting a 4v4 double elimination tournament which will be the best of three rounds (Hardpoint, Search and Destroy, and Capture the Flag). The ruleset will be based on the familiar MWEB Ladders rules, and we suspect this might be the last time Black Ops 2 gets a LAN run in South Africa.

We will be restricting the entries to twelve (12) teams initially, but if our equipment increases as promised, this number will be extended to sixteen (16) if the demand is there.

Players entering are requested to bring their own copy of Black Ops 2 on Xbox 360, and while all other necessary equipment will be supplied, it is suggested that you bring along your own headsets, as the number available is limited. You can also bring along your own controllers.

The Details:

  • Date: Saturday 19 October 2013
  • Time: 10:15am to 11:15am – Registration. 11:30am until finished – Matches.
  • Where: Trenchtown, 92 Station Road, Observatory, Cape Town
  • What: Black Ops 2 4v4.
  • Cost: Pre-registered: R50 Registration, or R80 for Registration with a Margarita Pizza. If you register on the day, costs will be R60 and R90 respectively, however, we urge you to pre-register, as we cannot guarantee space for you and your team. Pre-registrations for the Black Ops 2 will close at 10pm on Friday, 18 October 2013.

Event Schedule:

  • 10:15am: Registration
  • 11:30am: Matches start
  • Expected completion depends on the number of entrants per game.

Of course, no farewell would be complete if there wasn’t a hello involved too. That will be Call of Duty Ghosts, and we hope to announce something special pretty soon.

20 October

FIFA 14 and Injustice: Gods Among Us are order of the day.

FIFA 14 will be played on both Xbox 360 and PS3 (double elimination for 48 or less players), with the top two on each platform playing in a home and away grand final to determine the top four placings.

Injustice: Gods Among Us will be a double elimination tournament on PS3.
