Stand By: Tiger Direct to Host Titanfall Tournament June 21
The Titanfall team at last year's E3.
Stand by for cash prizes and giveaways!
The Tiger Direct store at the Mall of the Americas is hosting a gaming tournament featuring smash Xbox One hit Titanfall this Saturday, June 21. The tournament runs from 2 to 6 p.m. and promises to be a showdown between some of South Florida's best gamers.
The set-up for the tournament goes a little something like this: 16 three-person teams are going to duke it out in the game's classic Attrition mode. Sign-ups for teams are already full, but organizers say if you show up with a three-person squad ready to go, you might just be able to squeak in there in case of no-shows.
The top two teams will win Creative Labs gaming headsets and will vie for the grad prize of $1,500 cold hard cash. Second place gets $900, while third place gets $600. Not a bad deal.
Tiger Direct isn't leaving the spectators out of the equation--they're promising complementary energy drinks courtesy of BAWLS, t-shirts, and other fun goodies.
Can't make it to the store but still want to catch all the fun? The tournament will be livestreamed on Twitch.tv/therealtigerdirect where you can watch in your pajamas while, presumably, playing Titanfall.
