EB EXPO is right around the corner. It's Australia's biggest gaming event, and this year the organisers have gone direct to the community to organise its competitive gaming section.

You have already heard about the tournament through the Qualifiers and know that big prizes and bragging rights are on the line. This post will maintain all the information you need about this event.



As tournament director for the FIGHTERS ARENA within EB Expo, I'm pleased to invite players, spectators and volunteers to come to the event. All of the community groups that run the existing tournament series that we enjoy are involved in making this OUR event within a much bigger venue with a big audience.
It's an opportunity to give greater exposure to our scene and show a much wider group of gamers what the fighting game community is all about!
Here's the official website listing http://ebexpo.com.au/index.php?page=e-sports

FOR FULL SCHEDULE AND LIST OF QUALIFIED PLAYERS SEE NEXT POST

SHOWCASE GAMES
Dead or Alive 5
Tekken Tag Tournament 2

As these games are brand new, they do not have a regular tournament, but we will be running special, prize supported competitions each day.  The format for each will be WINNER STAYS on and the top bracket of players with the LONGEST STREAKS will then compete for a major prize.  These matches will receive an exhibition stage presence alongside the other finals games.
If finalists from BAM and BUTTONSMASH are present at the event for these games, we will look at special seeding or separate Exhibition event.
TBC - there may be a prize each day.

Player Exhibitions

To showcase our top players and to engage the public attending the event, we will ask skilled players to volunteer for special exhibition matches during downtime in their tournaments. 
The schedule for this is to be determined, but may include exhibitions between players of different games, against top winner-stays-on players on the casual stations, learn to play showcases, and celebrity matches.
Stay tuned!

PRIZES

Full prize listing is to be determined but will be provided by EB Expo's many major sponsors and will be a high value mix of cash and product.  In short, it is going to be HUGE.

2 questions

1. is the pass a 3 day pass?

2. can it be sold, or is it tied to the qualifier's name?


thanks

I'll be collecting names and at this time those names will go on a list that entitles you two things:

Entry into the Homegrown Gaming area (not a full EB Expo pass) - it is for the 3 days though and a lot happens there!
Entry into the top 16 tournament

You won't be able to sell it, it's like a guest list spot you've earned.  You can only pass it down to the next available person in the top 8 of the event you qualified in, if you can't go.  I'll then take that name as the entry.

Its at EB Expo itself on the Friday as mentioned in the first post, and times will be confirmed shortly.  Plan is to have a qualifier pool every 2 hours until we fill our spots.

Yes, it IS still possible, if you are planning to attend EB Expo, attend on the Friday and there will be a last chance qualifier for all three tournament games.

Plus, there will be winner-stays on for DOA5 and TTT2 with top streaks entering an exhibition set.
