Road to EVO 2012: Civil War Tournament April 28-29

By on January 18, 2012 at 3:21 pm

Virginia’s annual Civil War Tournament is back for its fourth year, this time as part of EVO’s 2012 tournament season. It’s set to include all six EVO games, as well as five other side-tournaments. If you live on the east coast and plan on participating in multiple games at this year’s Evolution tournament, this looks to be one of the best places to earn those precious seeding points. The trailer and all the information you’ll need to know are listed below.


Greetings to everyone from and VCU Fight Club!

It’s time once again to announce Virginia’s biggest major, CIvil War!

We’re coming at you with all 6 EVO main games, as well as 5 more tournaments!

We’re also proud to announce that Civil War 4 will be a “Road to EVO” event for all 6 of these games, so if you want your Evolution seeding points and a chance to get on that big stream event, come to Richmond, Virginia at the end of April!

The date

We will be hosting it on April 28th and 29th 2012. That’s right, a 2 day event! Schedule is to be announced and is dependent on registrations, but plan on most tournaments taking place saturday, and top 16’s (or even 32’s) taking place on Sunday.

The venue

Comfort Inn Midtown Conference Center in Richmond, VA.

We will have two ballrooms with over 6000 sq ft of space! This is the same location we’ve had River City Runbacks and River City Bowl, with the added bonus of a secondary ballroom.

Room blocks have been added at an ULTRA discount rate of 59$ per night. That’s SUPER cheap! Book now, because it’s a NASCAR race weekend in Richmond, and those rates won’t last!

The price

Every game is 10$ to enter with one exception (more on that later).

Pre-reg venue fee is 20$ from now until April 18th.

After that, it’s 30$ from April 18th-26th.

Registration will be 35$ at the door Saturday morning.

Please, please don’t wait until the last minute. The tourney experience is always better when I have more time to plan for the correct amount of attendance!

The pre party!

There will be an event at our local Barcade: Strange Matter, the night before on April 27th. Expect old school tournaments, team tourneys, and just general games+bar merriment. Also, we will be doing pre reg check ins, pool assignments, and last minute (at door) registrations there.

River City Bowl!

Don’t forget about our upcoming tourney in 3 weeks: The River City Bowl! 2/4/2012!
