So, as the title suggests.

Carbonite is looking into an entry fee based gaming tournament (To pay for said grand prize)

List some games we could run as a tournament?

Entry fee would be either R100 or R200 per person depending on the response. (Yes, that means if there is enough response and entry, you could literally win a RTX3090 for R100/R200)

Poll is for numbers of people interested.

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY IN THE THREAD with your poll answer, just the games we could look at hosting.

(This comp would only be open to Carbonite members who have been here for longer than 6 months)

Modern Warfare deathmatch mode (Could warzone be made into a tournament even but I prefer deathmatch physics feeling)

Counter Strike Global Offensive

Would love this to include other aspects of gaming but not everybody simraces etc etc

Could possibly include Among Us if that interests members like @PC Rescue

Said comp would be fun to have it streamed with commentary to make it hilarious plus grow Carbonite even further

Could the champions of said tournament receive a badge of some sort stating their achievement for the fun of it, no I am not planning on winning anything so no badges for participation.

CS, Dota, CoD and the likes has been done to death! I'm just bad at them

I don't really have any suggestions but it would be nice seeing something else, more unconventional being played.

I think we can look into Free to play games rather? Give everyone a fair chance. Not everyone owns MW etc
Fair enough , CS:GO , Dota 2 probably the best free widely played games

@Ageless_ZA Warzone is free isn't it but I'm not sure how it'd be setup, could Apex be setup with a private server for a tournament? @huzidada get over here punk

If Warzone could be setup on a private server then boy that would be awesome, solo Battle royale would be top notch stuff.

Hmm... The problem with this is that the guys who have been playing the chosen game forever will have a major advantage over the rest. So if you pick e.g. CS: GO then only the guys who are nearly pro-level with it will have a shot at the prize. Personally, I know I don't compete at that level in any game, so I would not enter the competition.

If that is the way you are keen to do the competition then that is fine. But for a true level playing field among all Carbies, you'd either have to do something that isn't really done at the Pro level (is there a pro-league of Among Us yet? If not, could be an option) -

- or you'd have to do a lucky draw giveaway with the same 6-month criterion as above.

You're going way too deep, way too early.

I opened this as a feeler to see the consensus, nothing is written in stone.

We could just do a raffle type giveaway, but that opens legalities that are a pain to adhere to (according to ZA law)

Everyone is "Pro" at something, so I would guess take all the games mentioned, poll, play that? Also just to throw a second game out there, not sure how popular it is. Insurgency? It's not free to play though, but cheap.

When there is a 3090 on the line, everybody will very quickly become a tryhard...

Ja look, I am not trying to shoot down the idea entirely. Just my 2c.

Does a raffle fall under gambling law even if nobody needs to buy a ticket? Anyway (to use my favourite internet acronym) IANAL, so I can't really comment on the legal side.

COD MW Warzone is FTP for all. So thats an option. Magic The Gathering Arena is also FTP and great fun. Its 1v1, winners can easily be identified etc. Could actually work quite well..... Also, Im not farmiliar with the game at all....... lol
