[Wollongong] Expand Gong - 2-3 April 2016
« on: February 27, 2016, 09:20:06 PM »
Hey everyone, I'm happy to share the news that Wollongong will be hosting its very first large scale FGC event!

EXPAND GONG
Wollongong’s first Major Fighting Game Tournament

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT & WHEN?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The University of Wollongong's Video Game Association (UOW VGA) and the Wollongong Fighting Game Community (Wollongong FGC) are proud to present Wollongong's first major fighting game competition - EXPAND GONG. This is a two-day event that will be held over the weekend of the 2nd / 3rd of April. The venue is in University of Wollongong’s own Building 11 - a spacious and comfortable function area within the university designed to hold gaming events!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHERE?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For those of you unfamiliar with the campus, here's a useful campus map (there is a convenient car park right next to the building!): https://www.uow.edu.au/about/campusmap/index.html

Wollongong lies about halfway between Sydney and Canberra, meaning that the best talent from both of these strong regions can meet and do battle without too much travel. Flights are also relatively cheap from both VIC and QLD.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GAMES?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following games will be running with featured tournaments:

- Street Fighter V
- Mortal Kombat X
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Singles)
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Doubles)
- Super Smash Bros. Melee (Singles)
- Super Smash Bros. Melee (Doubles)
- Project M

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TOURNAMENT ENTRY & COSTS?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Venue Fee - $20 (covers entry to both days)
Tournament Entry - $10 per game

The prize pool for each tournament will be comprised of that tournament's entry fees. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will receive 60%, 30% and 10% of the prize pool.

Come April, get ready to EXPAND GONG.
