About this tournament and who we are:

After a 5 year hiatus we finally have the facilities to once again run large tournies and are resurrecting the annual tournament for our region: Rumble in the Tundra (For awhile we were not able to find a suitable venue after the first one was closed off, large enough to house a large quantity of players in, hence the dormancy). The aim here is to remind people that there can still be "large" regional tournaments that don’t need to take multiple days, won’t be hamstrung by numerous delays/inefficient management and that won’t gouge the players by costing a ton of money just to get in the door. This event is truly all about the players having a good time and seeking to highlight the fierce competition in our region!

We were and still are The Largest Video Game Tournament in WNY!

This is how it’s going down and what you can expect:

- Pot bonuses worth traveling regionally for.
- Responsible and accountable tournament staff members.
- An extremely well organized and efficiently run bracket for each game.
- Brackets that WILL start on time and END on time.
- No hassles, 100% taken in from this event of the money goes right to the players.
- A large local player-base to compete against.
- Space for everyone, no more cramping in small venues. (Food/Drink options are available on premises)

5 Years ago we had a huge turnout at RitT 3 despite almost no pre-hype, over 100 players showed up in an era before tourney populations exploded, events got streamed and players got sponsored often. We plan on an even better turnout this time, for what is sure to be an electric event! Please come out and enjoy yourself!

Interested in Sponsorship or Helping out?
We are providing all the pot bonuses, expenses and other fees out of our own pocket, because we enjoy our FGC and want to reward players willing to come out and support us. However, if you are interested in helping out or potentially sponsoring this or future events with us, we'd welcome any offers/assistance/inquiries! Please contact me through any medium that is convenient for you. We'd love to help out anyone that supports the FGC and sincerely appreciate any offers to help make this a more memorable event, no matter how small or trivial they may seem to you!

We're not a major... and aren't pretending to be one. With future increased support from surrounding areas, perhaps we can look to one day becoming one. But for now, we stick to calling this a large 1-day event and hope that is good enough to garner interest for players within 'extended day trip' range :P

Thanks for taking the time to read the above statements, and I hope to see many of you curious onlookers soon!

I'll leave you with an example of the hypeness brought during RitT3's SF4 grand finals:

(RitT3 Results Thread on SRK)



If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to post up in this thread, if you would rather use PM- feel free to message me any time (I still monitor all FGC forums). If you’d rather email, please contact me at- rumbleinthetundra@gmail.com

If you are interested in overnight accommodations and/or crash space availability, I will be updating that information closer to the event as well.

Since this was announced so early, expect changes and update in the coming months, please check this thread regularly...
