As some may already know, on the 15th-16th of November this year we'll see what is potentially the biggest competitive gaming event the Middle East. Game Evolution will be an international calendar event with USD $150,000 (AED 550,950) in prize money to be given away. The event will be held in the Dubai World Trade Center's Convention Hall, also called the Trade Center Arena. The people behind the event are Index Exhibitions, who have organised some tournaments in past in this region.
The event will have tournaments for 5 game titles, with the 3 PC titles being:
Format - PC division:
- League Of Legends | 5v5 | USD $60,000
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive | 5v5 | USD $40,000
- Dota 2 | 5v5 | USD $40,000
The matches will most likely follow a group stage to knockout playoffs format. There will be a limit of 20 teams for each game, with 4 teams being invited (so they don't have to go through registration and pay the fee) while the remaining 16 will be determined via registrations.
For the Middle Eastern region there will be a separate qualifying event for each game held before Game Evolution where the winner will receive an extra spot. So far this has been determined to be 1 spot in each game division.
In addition there will also be 2 console titles:
Format - Console division:
- Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 | 1v1 | USD $5000
- FIFA 13 | 1v1 | USD $5000
The matches will most likely follow a group stage to knockout playoffs format. The platform to be used (XBOX 360 / Playstation 3) will be confirmed here very soon.
For those wondering about the final version of FIFA to be used (since FIFA 14 will probably be out before the event), Game Evo will use FIFA 13 with complete updates regardless, unless it becomes essential to use the very latest version. If the version is changed then it will be announced in advance.
Registrations are already open and are open to anyone and everyone. They can be done by filling the forms on the official website (link at the bottom).
You can find them by clicking on the E-SPORTS section, clicking the game title you want to register for, then clicking on the Register Now button (which might be under the More Info tab).
The event will be open to any and all visitors although there will be tickets required for entry. Ticket prices aren't confirmed yet. Game Evolution seems to be aiming to be weekend entertainment in the form of an electronic sporting event.
All prizes will be paid on-site at the end of the competitions in the form preferred by the winners (including cash). Prize distribution will be announced soon.
Apart from the tournaments, the venue will also be host to companies from the gaming & tech industry with merchandise for sale and display.
There will also be a Game Career Fair with institutes and universities involved in education and certifications for those interested in working in the game development industry.
Several more details regarding all aspects are to be confirmed and will be forthcoming as and when possible. Stay tuned @ Gaming420.
