The first 200 registrants get access to game for FIFA. 84 teams will play LOL.
The IndiaScribes.com Online Gaming Championship (ISOGC) comes with a strict set of rules. Some of the rules are:
The tournament bracket for each game will be announced thrice a week. Once the qualifier brackets are out, participants will know their opponents and their PSN IDs, or the screen names they’re known by online.
Before you begin playing the game, make sure all your gaming gear is in working condition. If you are competing in FIFA, ensure that the power cable of your PlayStation 4 is fully functional, and that you’ve charged its DualShock 4 controller using a micro-USB cable. And don’t forget to power up your wi-fi for the best connectivity.
Sorted? Good! Now you can start the game by adding your opponent on PlayStation Network (PSN)
In FIFA, the player who scores the best of three against his opponent will be the one to go ahead. A word of caution here: Every team game of 5 players will be having 2 substitutes. A game will not progress without 5 players. If a team has 4 players and opponent has 5 players, then the team with 4 players gets automatically disqualified.
If you win a match, all you have to do is provide the screenshot or picture of the result on a pre-determined Whats App No and it will be updated automatically.
The Championship is supported by Mumbai-based Nevada Putman Foundation, social worker Rahul Singh, Raj Wadhwa of F B Diamonds and several other brands which will be announced later.
