The FIRST sponsorship we can talk about is IGEL Technology who will be sponsoring the PUBG squads tournament, which starts on Sunday, Dec 2 at 11am. We may have a special guest lined up to play in this tournament as well, but you will have to wait for that announcement!
Loyalty is rewarded for your attendance and support in 2018. Each time you came to KCGameOn in 2018, you earned a raffle ticket that will be used in our raffle drawings at this event. In the next couple weeks, you can check your profile on the kcgameon website to figure out how many tickets you currently have tied to your account.
Raffle tickets will be earned for this event on all 3-day passes ONLY and make sure you are at each raffle because you must be present to win!
