Tournaments

 Overview

All attendees participating in tournaments or the LAN must bring a signed waiver / parental consent form (if under 18). The waiver can be downloaded here.

Gamers for Giving 2016 will feature headline tournaments with cash prize pools. All prize pools are guaranteed. Sponsors and partners help cover the event prize pools. Attendee entry fees and donations are used strictly for Gamers Outreach charity programs.

Tournaments will be hosted for both PC and console gaming enthusiasts. PC gamers need only purchase a seat in the BYOC LAN to participate in our PC tournaments.

Note: Gamers for Giving console tournaments are separate from the BYOC LAN. If you wish to participate in both activities, you will need to purchase a pass for both.

Players are allowed to compete in multiple tournaments, so long as their involvement in said tournaments does not cause significant delays for other participants (at the discretion of tournament moderators). In general, moderators will accommodate players in such circumstances by slightly delaying matches or completing other portions of the tournament bracket. However, in the event that adjustments can no longer be made, players may be forced to forfeit a match. Players assume all responsibility for such an occurrence.

For those competing in tournaments for PC titles, please note the following:

  • All PC gaming tournaments are open to LAN participants. If you wish to compete in one of our PC tournaments, you only need to purchase a BYOC seat in the LAN. Team information will be collected at the event at a designated check-in desk.
  • Remember, activities and tournaments aside from the cash prize events will also be taking place during the LAN. Be sure to bring games to play casually too!
  • In addition to being familiar with the rules and regulations of your respective tournament, please reference the LAN page for information regarding what equipment you’ll need to bring to the LAN.
