Tournaments

Gamers for Giving 2020 will feature an assortment of tournaments with cash and hardware prizing. All prizing is guaranteed. Sponsors and partners help cover event prizes so that attendee entry fees and donations are used strictly for Gamers Outreach charity programs.

Halo has always been a part of Gamers for Giving, and with the launch of The Master Chief Collection on Steam, we’re excited to share this year’s Halo tournament will be hosted on PC!

Our moderators intend to host an array of activities for Halo during the weekend – with a Halo: Reach FFA being this year’s headline event. Attendees who wish to compete in Halo will need to purchase a ticket in the LAN and bring their PCs as a LAN attendee.

Super Smash Brothers Ultimate will be this year’s only console title, and all equipment (except peripherals) will be provided for participants as in previous years.

Players are allowed to compete in multiple tournaments so long as it 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 adjustments can no longer be made, players may be forced to forfeit a match. Players assume all responsibility for such an occurrence.

Below you’ll find the full list of tournaments! We hope to see you on March 28th and 29th at the EMU Convocation Center!

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.
