Since the launch of Xiled Syndicate, the Tournaments and Events Department has undergone a major face lift. Going from serving just the Xiled Gaming Network community, to serving Killjoy Network, Fallen Angels of Sorrow, and Banished Gaming Legends as well.
Members are always wanting to take part in the various tournaments and events offered, are wondering how they can participate, and what it takes. I had the chance recently to speak with XGN ISH 7, the Head of Events for Xiled Syndicate. Here Ish has answered all the questions you may have when it comes to participating in XS Tournaments or Events.
What qualifications do you need to meet in order to sign up for a tournament?
“Well, it depends on the tournaments. The exclusive tournaments, such as the annual events, have a two week minimum in XS. Others have no qualifications other than [that you] own the game.”
How many people can sign up for a single tournament?
“Depending on the size of the tournament, and how popular the game actually is.”
During the competition, how many games are played?
“On average about 5-6, but for larger tournaments it can range from 16-20 games. The last annual event had a total of 26 games.”
What rules are set in place for the competition?
“The rules are posted under the forums thread of the tournament when it is advertised. The Xiled Syndicate CoC always applies, on top of events guidelines that we have in place.”
How do you decide what game to play?
“We honestly take feedback from the community and randomly select games.”
What prizes do you offer to those who participate?
“The more exclusive events, such as the Annual Events, often have cash prize or perks rewarded to the victors. Our occasional tournaments are for bragging rights and fame.”
What prizes do the winners get?
“Some prizes may include Xiled Elite, Xbox, or PS gift cards, PayPal funds sent to your account, video games, or XS apparel from the shop.”
What are your goals for future tournaments?
“My goal is to keep activities going within XS on a day to day basis, and to keep up with the high demand of annual events.”
When is the next tournament?
“The next major tournament is The Battle for XS on February 2nd, 2019.”
What advice would you give to those who want to compete, or who are competing?
“Have fun, follow the handbook, and more importantly respect your teammates and competition.”
