GetHype and LAGza are bringing you the Sodium Overload 2012 tournament, sponsored by AnimeWorx and Comet Computing.
There isn’t a better way to kick off the New Year than having our very own Fighting Game Tournament. Get ready to see the salt flow as we kick off the year with a bang.
Sodium Overload will be taking place on Saturday the 28th of January 2012. There will be 2 tournaments held during the day, Tekken 6 and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. At the end of the day we will be hosting an Exhibition match for the new King of Fighters XIII, this will be an open event to anyone who wants to participate and will be a good way to see where the players interests are and possible bring the game into future events.
Entrance fee will be R30, this will give you entrance to play both games. The player is not required to play both games but we would like to encourage that all players take part in both events.
We will be starting the day off with registrations from 9:30am, regestrations will close at 11am. We will kick the day off with Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 starting from about 11:30am. This will go on till Grand Finals where we will then switch over to Tekken. We will then run both of the Grand Finals at the end of the day. The Winners and Losers Finals as well as Grand Finals of each tournament will be recorded and uploaded to the Get Hype youtube channel for future viewing.
Both of these tournaments will be double elimination best out of 3 rounds format. Tekken games will be 3 rounds per match. Finals and Grand finals will both be best out of 5.
