Is GEXCon still on?
While EA Sports has cancelled all future Madden Championship Qualifiers (including the one that was to be held at GEXCon), it was only one of our many tournaments.
GEXCon will be held this weekend at the Dulles Expo Center and will feature several Premier Tournaments, our F2P (free to play) tournaments, Free Play area, BYOC LAN, Arcade, Vendors, Artists, Virtual Reality and more.
We look forward to seeing you this coming weekend.
When / Where / What is GEXCon?
Can I re-enter the show if I leave?
Yes you can! Your admission allows exit and re-entry during show hours.
Is outside food allowed?
What games will be there?
In our F2P Tournaments Area (what we used to call our Battle Zone) we will have casual tournaments in League of Legends, Hearthstone, Overwatch, Fortnite, Dota 2, Quake Champions, and Paladins. Visit our Schedule for times. Sign ups will be done at the event before the start of the tournament.
In our Console Area we will have Super Smash Melee, Super Smash Wii U, Madden, and more.
If you can’t find anything interesting then come and join us in the BYOC area.
What is the difference with the F2P tournaments?
The main difference is the prizing layout. Things like FGC, RL, and CSGO tournaments all have a cash prize but require an additional fee to enter. F2P tournaments will have physical prizes: steam keys, t-shirts, headsets, etc. Another difference is that anyone that is at GEXCon can enter the F2P tournaments as they come with your ticket purchase.
I'm younger than 18, do I need a parental consent form?
Yes, click here to get the Parental Consent form. Print it.. get it signed… bring it with you… and you’re all set.
What about kids?
Children under the age of 8 can enter for free as long as they are accompanied by a paid adult at all times. Please understand that some cosplay might be considered “risqué” by some (but nothing more than you’d typically see at a local swimming pool).
What will I need to bring?
How much is it?
What about security?
Is the area sectioned off or isolated from everyone else?
Hold up, can I bring my own chair?
Can I bring a cooler and snacks?
What is the difference between buying my ticket online versus at the door?
Can I get a refund?
Why am I being redirected to another website for the CS:GO and Madden ticket?
Where can I sign up?
What are the prizes?
What will I be expected to fill out on the sign up sheet?
Free 2 Play (F2P)
Will I need a special pass?
Is there going to be a long line?
How long will I have?
We’re giving everyone 1 hour to play whatever they wish. That means don’t try starting two ranked matches of League of Legends!! What if I’m about to finish when my time is up? We’re all gamers, so we know what is close to being done and what isn’t. If you actually are almost finished, we’ll likely allow you to finish up, however if you started a second match and you’re not close or certain when it’s going to end we will kick you off. What if I want to play for longer? If there is no one waiting, you can start another session. If you think you’ll want to play for hours and hours without worrying about getting a system – you might consider a BYOC pass and bringing your own computer. You still get to do all the other fun things at GEXCon but can come and go in the LAN area as much as you’d like and never have to wait.
What games are going to be on there?
Will I have to use my own account?
