We must have done something right on our first event at Trenchtown back on 1 June because we’re being allowed back. And by “we”, I mean you gamers, and the facilitators in the form of 2upGamers eSports.
On Saturday, 13 July, you should get your gaming face on for action in the shape of Black Ops 2 and FIFA 13, as well as the new addition of skull smashing of the virtual variety in the form of fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us.
This time around we’re getting everyone ready for the MSSA Western Cape Provincial Trials by running the Black Ops 2 tournament as a 4v4 competition. The number of teams will determine the format of the tournament. If you’re a lone wolf, we can hopefully help you find some team mates in the run-up to the event. The tournament will run on Xbox 360, and all equipment will be supplied, however, if you would prefer to bring your own headsets and controllers, please feel free to do so.
The FIFA 13 tournament will be 1v1 and will be played on both PS3 and Xbox 360 but not as played last month. This time players will play on their preferred platform in a double elimination tournament, with the winners of each platform going on to play each other in a grand final in a ‘home and away’ format. All equipment will be supplied, but players may bring their own controllers if preferred.
The fighting will be on Xbox 360, and while the majority of the equipment will be supplied, you can bring your fightstick along if you prefer that over a bog-standard controller.
Except for Injustice: Gods Among Us, the other games are MSSA sanctioned games and will feature in Augusts’ Provincial Trials.
Registration for the event is R50 per player per game – or you can pay R80 and get a margarita pizza chucked in. Cash prizes will be up for grabs as well as sponsored products. The minimum cash prize pool is a total of R2000. However, the more players that enter, the bigger the prize pool will get. The breakdown of prizes per placing will be revealed soon.
Apex Interactive have joined the rest of our sponsors for the day. The Gioteck headsets have been part of many a 2upGamers event in the past and Apex Interactive (who distributes the range) will be offering some spot prizes for us to give away to attendees throughout the day. Returning sponsors for the day is Trenchtown themselves, Red Bull, Jagermeister (only for those old enough of course), Relic and still more to be announced soon.
