  1. We are looking for two guys to team up with for this tournament. If you seem interested send me and Xbox Live message. My Gamertag is Foxtrot GRACE. You don’t have to be a pair we will accept individuals who would like to tryout. I will put up a new post/edit this post (if that is possible) when someone is added to the team. Thankyou

        1. Are you seeing just the text and nothing under Teams registered or something else? I went ahead and checked this section in a few different browsers and can see the list just fine.

          1. Yeah like when click it and it drops down I see the little paragraph above it but no teams below it…nothing

  2. Is an xbox live gamertag required to compete? My gaming team is based on pc but we would love to compete (and are also aware that only controllers are valid)

    1. You ~should~ be able to create LAN profiles to compete. I say should because we did have some issues with teams headsets not allowing any voice communication on these accounts. I would at least bring an XBL account that isn’t gold with you just incase. Shouldn’t cost anything extra to make.

    1. It doesn’t for this tournament but we are limiting the amount of teams. Paying for your team in advanced guarantees them a spot to compete in the tournament. Paying at the door runs the chance that we’ve hit our team limit prior to game day.

    1. You’ll be able to use them but eBash doesn’t provide any additional wires for stations. So you’ll have to bring any and all extra wiring you might need. We are using a few different build Xbox 360s at the location and some don’t offer any optical output.

  3. Did the $5000 Indy pop con invitational tournament get canceled because I can’t seem to find the web page for it anymore because of says it no longer exists? I would like to know as soon as possible so I know to register or not
