If you fancy yourself a whiz with the M4A1, a crack shot with a .50 cal or your team’s designated tree cutter when a MK46 is in your hands, Southern Event Management is giving you the opportunity to put your skills to the test in a bid to collect a cool $2000. All you have to do is play lots and lots of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
You’ll also need to live in Melbourne, or have some way of getting down here. The melee starts in Chelsea (a bit over 30km from the city) on February 25, with tournaments running all the way up to June 16. The decider will be fought on June 30 at a yet-to-be-determined location.
The entry fee is $40, and payments look like they must be made via PayPal.
As an aside, my definition of Melbourne and that of the organiser’s differs greatly — Frankston, Shepparton, Ballarat and Geelong are hardly “Melbourne”. Heck, Shepparton’s almost 200km away from the CBD! Then again, I live on Flinders St, so I might just be a city snob (which I’ll happily admit).
Perhaps it’s the fringes where all the Modern Warfare 3 action happens, though I suspect it has more to do with hiring venues that support large amounts of people and the 360s and TVs they’ll be playing on without having to own an enchanted money fountain.
