Elite Battle Zone has provided hundreds of prizes to the winners of our sanctioned tournament events, and we have done all this without charging the end user a dime. Participants do not pay to play, and we simply ask them to register for our great forum community, submit an application, and follow the rules. We have had a few shall we say “Not so pleasant participants”. With online gaming, and the dominance online gamers exert we are happy to make as many as happy as possible. We know we will not provide enjoyment for them all, but we try. We naturally have to thank all our sponsors that have donated product for all of our great tournaments. We thank them for giving back to the online gamers that have given so much to the gaming industry.

Elite Battle Zone has provided many a great tournaments for games such as Socom: Confrontation, Socom: 4, GRID, Rockband 2, Tekken 6, Madden NFL 11, NHL 11, GT5, and others. We are pleased with the direction the gaming industry is going, and we can assure our current community members and future members that we will continue to provide excellent tournament for them to participate in.

Resistance 3: Operation Urgent Freedom ITGM Tournament was created for the gamers by the gamers. Teams will battle in two attacks per week for ten weeks or however long a team may last. Teams will start with three territories and one territory will be labeled as a Base of Operation, and teams Base of Operation may only be attacked once it is their last territory.

No teams shall be eliminated in the first week. Each territory will have a different Map, Soldier Count, and Game Mode to be warred by the defending and attacking teams. Soldier Count will be 4 vs. 4, 5 vs. 5, and 6 vs. 6 with maps being large and small based on territory size. There are no evaluation matches that must be played. We take all teams as being honorable until they violate the rules. The first 21 applications will get invitations to participate.

Teams will start out with a set amount of Battle Points, and they must use Resources once they become available to travel from continent to continent and inner continent land travel. Each Resource has a BP value to purchase, and a BP value to use each time. Teams are only allowed to control four territories at any given time, and once a fifth territory is acquired they must label one dead. Each dead territory will have a Death Symbol signifying it being dead, and which team controlled it. Teams may change their Base of Operation during week five, and it will cost Battle Points to do this.

A team is allowed one Leader and two Representatives. Each week on Sunday at 8:00 pm est. there will be an attack meeting using EBZ Flashchat in the forum. This tournament involves teams to think about who they want to attack, when they attack, and what resource they use. This is not for those teams that just want to war. This is for those teams that are looking for a challenge, something that tests the wits, and strategic mentality of the team. If you want basic playing than simply join online multiplayer, or create a room. We are more than just basic gaming.

All teams are welcome to submit an Application to participate. Application questions must be 100% filled out. We will only be inviting twenty-one team applications. Each team application will be distributed an Invitation. Invitations must be accepted by team leader/rep to be involved in this grand tournament. Attacking teams must submit Match Results, and defending teams must confirm. Battle Points will be tracked weekly for each team in the forum. We hope all teams that participate in this grand tournament enjoy it, and have a blast. Let the strategic battles begin!
