Our event is more about growing the fighter tournament community than prizes, that being said you can expect a few things:

1st Place: Full color metal sublimated images mounted on wood plaques!

Your name on our website for all eternity! Past Tournament Winners: http://www.carolinagamessummit.com/tournaments.php?sxViewPastEvents=true&page=1

Recognition on stage in front of 400 fellow hard core gamers! We put a ton of time into producing the best awards ceremony we can. Videos of each game, all teams/winners names shown on the projector while you are escorted across stage!

These are the reasons we want people to come, if all you are into is prizes well we have those too, free fight sticks etc, but we don’t advertise it because we truly want gamers to come out and show what they have for the fun of it! I know this part will put off a lot of amazing players on this site but I am just trying to be honest and up front with you all!

Went and got 4th in Street Fighter here this past February, i’ll be helping run tournaments this time around, specifically DOA5 and VF5. This really is a great event. Bring your friends out too, even if they don’t play competitively there is still plenty for them to do. You’ll meet all kinds of cool people that share a passion for video games, and there will be lots of great speakers and vendors out. It’s a good chance to meet people in the industry if your like me and trying to land a job. So, please come out and support this great event, it will be worth your time!

Do you guys know of any upcoming tournaments in or around Goldsboro?? I will drive to Wherever just need the time & place!! I’m dying for a challenge!!!
