Though E3 is finally open to the public (in small numbers) for the first time this year, not everyone is going to get in, either because of money, availability, or a little bit of both. Battlefy, an online eSports service, has partnered with Nintendo to offer fans a chance to go to the 2017 Electronics Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles. The offer is attached to a Splatoon tournament that will be available to players 18 and up living in the United States. There’s no cost for admission—simply fire up your Wii U with a copy of Splatoon and play online for a shot to win.

There’s a little bit more to it than that, though, so we’ll let Nintendo’s press release break down the contest in greater detail:

“The qualifying round (Turf War) is on April 22 at 11 a.m. PT, but make sure to log in early and click the ‘Check In’ button an hour before tournament time. Once the bracket is seeded, you can set up your qualifying match using Battlefy’s Private Match Chat and then proceed to splat your way to hopeful victory. The top 16 teams in the qualifying round will then move on to the finals. In the finals, teams will play Turf War, Splat Zones and Tower Control in succession in single-elimination best-of-five play until only two teams remain. The Grand Finals will see the final two teams doing battle in Rainmaker mode to determine the winner. The finals will begin on April 29 at 11 a.m. PT.”

Got all that? Good! Now grab three of your buddies (and an alternate), register your team, and let the ink fly!
