TOURNAMENT DAY INFORMATION

(Detailed Tournament Day Info will be out 12th April)

All players must sign in at our COVID-19 checkpoint at the venue prior to entering due to COVID-19 restrictions.

All players must present their receipt upon entry, be signed in and assigned a station.

Equipment Provided (BYO allowed)

Venue’s PCs will be used | KB, M & HS Provided At Each Station

BYO Keyboard, Mouse, Headset and Controllers allowed. (Please bring a 1-2m cable for your controller if you’re bringing it.). Please fill your own peripheral details in during registration.

Extremely Limited Spots

Please arrive 15-30 mins before your session start time, to ensure sufficient time to get you checked in, signed in, setup and ready to go without any issues.

PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL PLAYERS KNOW THEIR EPIC-FORTNITE EMAIL & PASSWORD TO LOGIN.

We want to make sure before players arrive to the event on the day that they all know their Epic/Fortnite Email & Password to login. We have had past incidents where players who enter the wrong Email & Password too many times will lock out the whole UQU Network preventing other players from signing in. The only work around is if you ALREADY have linked your Epic Account through Facebook, Google Account, PSN, Xbox Live or a Nintendo Account. If we catch you entering your details incorrectly too many times, we will sign you in with our XP Esports Guest Fortnite accounts which means you will not be able to play using your own account.

Once your session has been completed, all BYO equipment must be removed for the next session.
