Each game will have a maximum cap of 32 contestants per game.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I only payed $5 for the venue fee last time and now this time around it's $15 for the venue? What gives?
A: Exactly. What gives? We give. Last BOTB every paying entrant received 2 magazines, a gang of stickers, free canned soda, free bottled water, and 5 raffle tickets that gave the entrant the chance to win custom hand-painted fighting game artwork, tee shirts, hats, and jackets. You can bet your sweet gaming ass that there will be even more free goodies, drinks, raffles, and more..

Q: What system are we playing on?
A: Xbox 360

Q: What is double elimination?
A: Say you lose a 2 out of 3 match set against your opponent, this will knock you into the losers bracket. This means you still have 1 more chance at going undefeated in a 2 out of 3 match set throughout the rest of the tournament to win in the grand finals!

Q: What other sponsors will be at the event?
A: Just wait and see ;)

Q: What will be raffled?
A: Fighting game paraphernalia such as tee shirts, hats, 1-of-a-kind custom fighting game artwork, posters, and more. Can't spill the beans on all of the goodies!

Q: What is the tournament max cap per game?
A: 32 players max per game

Q: How do I know I'm going to have a good time at the event? I don't wanna waste my hard earned money on a whack ass event!!!
A: Read the reviews from the first BOTB. Click anywhere in this sentence to see for yourself.

Q: What if want to compete in (this game) and (that game), may I?
A: Yes you may, just make sure you check in frequently with the bracket runner of each game to see when it's your turn.
