HARDWARE
OKgamers will have 16 Asus “No lag” style monitors at this event for Fighters.
HxC LAN Center will have 16 setups.
OKgamers Community Leads will help provide consoles and hardware for their games.
Attendees that can bring “full setups” - aka no-lag TV, console and games will have organization fee’s waived, and high-5’s given.

HALO REACH HAS BEEN ADDED - however, it’s 100% “community provided”, aka HxC has worked with gamers to make sure we have at least 8 setups to run the event on showing up… BUT - we are paranoid; gamers lives change, etc - MAKE SURE if you are coming for Halo Reach you bring a hardware setup if you can! If we don’t have enough hardware to run the event, we do reserve the right to cancel it! (We should be fine; but help insure that by bringing your Halo Setup if you can!)

HARDWARE NEEDED LIST - coming soon

RULES for Tournaments: coming soon

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING AS A TOURNAMENT PARTICIPANT?
If you plan on playing in a tournament - your entry fees in cash and your own controller, as extra controllers will not be present beyond what gamers brought to use themselves. (Cash? Yes, sorry, no CC machine here guys lol.)

You mentioned bringing hardware.” - for those hardcore and/or helpful members of the fighting or FPS community, yes, we do have people bring hardware. Luckily for those 2 types of gamers, 4 to 8 setups go a long way, only requiring a few to bring hardware; if you want to help out, we’ll have an area on the pre-registration form to let us know!

NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK!
Why? While we will be there for a while, the good news is TCC Metro’s Campus Cafeteria area will be opened up to us! Plenty to purchase in snacks, drinks, and food! They may have hours they run their grill vs not, etc - just make sure to check in with them after pre-registration, etc!

TABLETOP / CCG’ers wanting a sneak peak can check out the planning thread; the official tournament thread is soon to follow this one!

We’ve been planning this event for months, but still have some sponsors and details to lock down; however we wanted to get this posted for you! See you in February at one of Oklahoma’s largest yearly gaming events!

Flyer IS ATTACHED - please spread the word where you can! Community Leads and Supporters, if you are wanting to do a big run, we do have flyers printed as well if you want to get those.
