The Setup

This will be a solo gamerscore tournament, where each participant will be able to score from a single game starting with each letter of the alphabet, with a maximum score of up to a 1000:1gs: per game including DLC. In an effort to hamper pre-loaders, only 12 letters of the alphabet will be available for scoring. The randomly selected letters will be announced within 24 hours of the tournament's inception.


As a bonus, 3 letters will act as "bonus points." These are X, B and A (XBA). As such, that means there will be 9 letters chosen at random from a random number generator. For further information on the tournament's rules, please click the link below.


Here are your scoring letters: (Bonus Letters in Bold)


A, B, C, G, H, J, K, N, R, V, X and Y.

The XBA 2018 Tournament Trilogy

Trilogies are all the rage these days, so let's make that part of our tournaments, too! This will be part one of three solo tournaments in our 2018 trilogy. Upon all three tournaments closing, a Tournament Trilogy Winner will be announced and a unique forum award will be awarded to that member! Also, working with our Max Club and GFX teams, the Trilogy Winner will also be granted the ability to create a new multi-tier Challenge Club and accompanying awards!

General Discussion Thread

It's important to have a bit of banter during a videogame tournament. Some pokes here and some jokes there, but let's remember to keep it friendly y'all!

Thank you

A big thank you to everyone who was involved in this project and of course to our members who we hope to see score hard and win those forum awards and prizes!


A quick note on the controller rests we're giving away as prizes: These are a limited run being made exclusively for XBA and our tournament winners. 299 has a store on Etsy with many other designs and he does take custom requests. So, if you're not one of the lucky winners, you can still get yourself a consolation prize ;)
