Attention all ZA Gears players, there’s a new Gears of War 3 tournament coming your way. Extending our relationship with El33tonline and #GearsWednesday we’re putting on a King of the Hill Knockout tournament. Happening this June, in fact it’s only a few weeks away because we’re that excited about it.
UPDATE: Note updated fields in green. Match Forfeit section added.
|Date:||23 – 24 June 2012|
|Registration:||Maximum of 5 members per team (4+1 reserve)
Please indicate who will be captain and who will be host
Those not in a team of 4 may register as wildcards (groups smaller than 4) and we will attempt to complete their teams.Register here (registration closes 19 June)
Each team is required to have at least one member with a 4mb ADSL line.
|Matches:||Prelims – Best of 5
Double Elim – Best of 3
All matches will take place on Saturday (23/06) and Sunday (24/06). Play will start at about 11am on Saturday.Allowances for breaks will be allowed but for the most we would prefer for all matches to be played as soon as possible, so that the event doesn’t run too late. Provisionally a 7pm cutoff has been set, all outstanding matches will need to be completed on Sunday before the final.
Wildcard registration is an attempt to get everyone involved even if you dont have a team. Wildcards will be randomly put together in teams of 4. Wildcards will be dealt with on a first-come-first-serve basis. No guarrentees will be made, so it’s best to find your own team.
|Points to Win:||210 pts|
|Weapon Respawn:||After Use|
|Weapon Swaps:||Server swaps|
|Misc:||Off-host team always gets choice of Cog or Locust
Team with the most points during the match will host the tiebreaker map
In the event of a rare tie, flip a coin to decide. Winner of the last map calls it
Each team must use different characters and no clones. Only ONE “Skinny” Character per Cog team and Locust team

The prizes pictured below will be randomly awarded to individual players. The figurines can be delivered via SAPO/Speed Services, the Lancer replica however will need to be collected in person in JHB or otherwise arranged.
