UC Davis SFIV 3 on 3 Tournament
When: January 23rd, 2010
Where: UC Davis Memorial Union Games Area
Who: Hosted by the Davis, CA Street Fighter community featuring live streaming by Thxyoutoo of IPlayWinner.com. Dress well + deodorant
**Time: Sign ups begin at 12:00PM and tournament play begins promptly at 2:00PM
-3vs3 SBO Format (winner stays, loser sits format)
-Single Game, Best of 3 Rounds, DOUBLE ELIMINATION
3vs3 SBO Format:
The premise of SBO 3vs3 format is winner stays on, and the loser is eliminated. Basically, you double blind pick the first match by telling the judge whose playing first. The character of the first player is already decided at sign-up so essentially, the first match is selected blindly. After that, your team is free to pick whoever goes up next if your teammate loses.
This is the exact opposite of EVO/NCR’s 5vs5 team tournament where matches are pre-selected (and where norcal got counter-picked to hell :X). Matches are done on the fly depending on wins.
This format has been chosen specifically to get America used to SBO/Nats format in preparation of next year.
$30 per Team
$25 to pot
$3 to UC Davis Memorial Union Games Area for the facilities and equipment
$2 to IPlayWinner.com for providing the stream and for future streaming projects/equipment. IPlayWinner strives to use money graciously provided by the community to provide top quality streams and commentary at future tournaments. (Buttfuckers/NCR/StrongStyle/Majors/Etc.)
Many people don’t realize it, but live streams are often done with little or no paid compensation. In order to keep things running smoothly and to keep the hype up, please show IPlayWinner or other stream teams some generosity.
The pots a little bigger this time around so make the trip and hopefully, get paid.
1st: Everything except 2nd place entry fee
2nd: Entry Fee
No money for losers this time around. All or nothing.
-PS3 Tournament + Japanese Setup Arcade Cabinet (6 button curved layout + sanwa JLF ball top)
-Teams will consist of 3 players
-Bring your own stick, or a TE can be provided
-No programmable pads/sticks/rapid-fire
-One character per team (No 3 Ryu teams, etc.)
-Sign Ups will require a character selection
e.g.: Player A Ryu, Player B Sagat, Player C Akuma
Before play begins, you tell the judge if you’d like to play player A, B or C and the other team does the same.
This will be Davis’s 2nd team tournament. Last time, around 10-12 teams showed up and the tournament was very successful.
In order to speed things up, pre-reg would be appreciated as the post below this one is reserved for teams planning to show up. Hope to see you there.
