I have been speaking with someone re: gaming competitions, specifically Call of Duty. He is 17 but says Microsoft pays for air travel / hotel to these conventions. If they pay for this, does the gamer need to bring their console / equipment? Do
they also require an adult to go with him?
Microsoft DOES NOT SPONSOR GAMERS the person your are speaking with is talking out this @@@. Please ignore him.
Also, you have to be 18+ to compete in LAN tournaments (most "major" ones)
I was under the impression that all you had to do was get parental consent to attend tournaments under 18.
@ OP, I used to be interested in going to gaming tournaments, and I don't think any are sponsored by Microsoft in the way you claim, and I highly doubt that they pay much in the way of travel expenses.
