With registration less than a week away, we’re excited to share news on our Gamers for Giving 2019 headline console tournaments! This year, we’ll be hosting two competitions across the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
If you’ve been keeping up with our blog updates – you already know Gamers for Giving is a destination point for the Halo Grassroots program. In our original announcement, we mentioned the competition would take shape in the form of a 2v2 tournament. However, after seeing the recent enthusiasm for 4v4 competitive play at the UGC Halo Classic, we’ve decided to alter the format of our competition and expand this year’s Gamers for Giving Halo 3 tournament to a full 4v4 tournament!
Additionally, we intend to stream the majority of this year’s Halo tournament as part of our overall fundraising broadcast on the Gamers Outreach Twitch.tv channel.
Consoles, games, monitors, and ASTRO Mixamps will be provided. Players need only bring their controllers and desired accessories.
Expect more news regarding our plans for Halo, as well as its corresponding prize pool and our production partners in the coming days.
Along with Halo, Gamers for Giving will feature a 1v1 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament on the Nintendo Switch. Consoles, games, and monitors will all be provided. Competitors need only bring their controllers and desired accessories. Settings will be posted in the near future.
Passes to compete in both events will go on sale Wednesday, January 16th at 12 PM eastern. You can find more information on all of this year’s competitions on the Tournaments page.
We hope you’ll join us in supporting this year’s fundraising quest on March 23rd and 24th at the EMU Convocation Center!
