#1

UPDATE January 22: Bloodline Rebellion is here and ready!

Where:
Game Galaxy
Hickory Hollow Mall
5252 Hickory Hollow Pkwy
Antioch, TN 37013
www.gamegalaxyarcade.com

Date: February 21, 2009

Registration will start at 10 AM. All tournaments will start at their assigned times below. For those of you who have been to a past KiT event, you know we are sticklers for promptness and organization, so be on time!

Tournament Games:
12 PM - Soul Calibur IV (PS3): $10 70/20/10
1:30 PM - Tekken 5 DR (PS3): $5 Winner take all
3 PM - MK vs DC (PS3): $5 Winner take all
4 PM - Street Fighter IV (PS3): $5 Winner Take all

Venue Fee: $10

The venue fee will cover each tournament and as a bonus Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion will be FREE the entire day. The arcade opens at 10 AM and will close at 10 PM, that’s 12 hours of Tekken 6 BR. That’s good even if you do not enter any of the tournaments and just want to pay the venue to get to play BR. Since there is a flat fee for all and this is a new game, we are capping win streaks at 3 games. There will of course be casuals for all the tournament games the whole day.

If you provide a PS3 for the tournament, I will pay your venue fee. There are a limited number of PS3s we can use, so post up first if you can provide one. We might need a couple copies of SCIV and SFIV as well.

Tournaments will be run standard double elimination, 3/5 rounds 2/3 matches. Winners/Losers Final 3/5 matches, Grand Finals 4/7.

Button shouldering banned in Tekken/Street Fighter, but allowed in SC4.

Algol/Yoda banned (SC4). Jinpachi banned (T5DR), Seth and Gouken banned (SFIV).

MKvDC:

  1. All infinites BANNED. using an infinite results in a forfeit for that round.
  2. Superman gets 1 free move after dd4*1+2 but it cannot be another promove ground pound.
  3. Flash reset is LEGAL but only 1 reset in the combo is allowed. if 2 resets are done then its considered a semi-infinite and you forfeit the round.
  4. Breaker combos are legal.
  5. Guaranteed hits/combos off of the unblockable rage activation are legal.
  6. Instant kill glitch BANNED. using it results in a forfeit for that MATCH.
  7. ALL characters are legal.
  8. Random stage.
  9. Winner must keep the character they won with. you can change characters after a loss.

Also, no Food or drinks in the arcade please! There is a food court right next to the arcade where you can eat. I know it’s tempting to get something and eat while you watch your friends play, but please respect the owner of the arcade!

Sounds like this will be a blast. Any word on controller restrictions? I have been practicing/learning stick over the past year but I am leaps and bounds better on a pad. The only thing I might do is map Punch*3 to a shoulder for ultras.


#3

I’m inclined to do it however Final Round is doing it. I’ll look into that.


#4

Sorry for being a noob, but what’s Final Round?


#5

Big annual tournament in ATL

They have a ban on shouldering. Hmm, I’ll say no to it then.


#6

Good call, macros are for scrubs.

Is it OK to run side tournaments for other games?


#7

No. Space is too limited in the back console area. You’d have to be able to set it up somewhere else on the other side of the arcade.


#8

Thanks fs :tup:

Guess I better get a ton of practice in. I still plan to come represent though.

Noob time again: What does KiT stand for?


#9

Kumite in Tennessee


#10

Damn, I just saw this! I just moved to TN and it’s been awhile since I’ve had any competition in a fighting game. I might have to start checking this stuff out on a more regular basis.


#11

Check the TN thread in the matchmaking section. Game Galaxy is the best arcade in TN, there’s a good number of fighting games as well as TVs for console play. You should go there whenever you have chance.


#12

I hope we have enough SFIVs…


#13

We should have enough.


#14

If you guys need more TV’s, SFIVS, or 360s. I’ll be glad to help.


#15

It says you are in Nashville. Do you come to the arcade?

We would only need a copy of SFIV if you have it for PS3.


#16

Yeah. Im usually seen hanging around the arcade. Im gonna get it on the PS3


#17

So will we have to bring our own controllers? Sorry if this has been covered. I checked the OP but didn’t see anything.

I ask because I own a 360, so i have no ps3 controllers, and I don’t plan on buying a controller/stick for ps3 just for this tourney.


#18

Yes, you will have to bring your own controller/stick. If you want to use a pad you can use mine. A stick might be harder to find, since I do not own one.


#19

Hmmm, I may have to use your pad then. I would actually rather use stick for this tourney for the practice, but I don’t have a ps3 stick.

One last thing about the Pads. If there is a button, say, Light Punch, mapped to a shoulder by default, is that ok? Like if i wanted to hit LP on the shoulder, then MP and HP on the face of the controller with my thumb, would that be ok?


#20

MK vs DC added to the games roster.
