Airdashers Anonymous:
A fighting game tournament designed to help cure your addiction. You can only recieve help once you admit that you have a problem.

Hi, my name is Id_asz, and I play airdasher fighting games.

Seriously, though, this is going to be a big tournament. It will be held at FFA (Family Fun Arcade) where we’ve been doing bi-weeklies for BB, GG and MB for quite some time. The date Dec 19&20th is on a weekend right after Finals (for most colleges) and during Winter Break, so it’s the perfect time for us to hold a huge tournament!

Here’s the setting:
We’ll have 8 fighting games, and 3 Teams over the course of 2 days.

Location:
Family Fun Arcade
10363 Balboa Blvd.
Granada Hills, CA
(818) 360-0419

December 19th & 20th (Sat & Sun)

Day 1:
BlazBlue 3v3 Teams ($3 per entrant, [so $9 per team])
Guilty Gear XX ? Core 2v2 Teams ($1 per entrant)
Melty Blood Actress Again 2v2 Teams ($1 per entrant)
Eternal Fighter ZERO ($1 to enter)
Fate/Unlimited Codes ($1 to enter)
Twinkle Star Sprites ($1 to enter)

Day 2:
1 match between players; Double Elim bracket.
BlazBlue Singles ($5 to enter)
Guilty Gear XX ? Core Singles ($3 to enter)
Melty Blood Actress Again Singles ($3 to enter)
Hokuto no Ken ($1 to enter)
Arcana Heart FULL! ($1 to enter)

The times for each game isn’t decided yet, but they’ll be figured out soon. I’ll update this post when we do.

We’ll also be holding exhibitions and casuals for each game for those of you who don’t know how to play some of these and are interested. I’ll personally be teaching players how to play TSS . The most important thing to remember is to bring your own stick! The only games you can count on not having to use your stick will probably be GG and TSS, everything else will need your stick! Games will be on PS2, PS3 and PC so keep that in mind. I only have one stick to lend out, and I’ll need it for myself when I play, so try not to count on other people.

Let me go over the rules and info:

BlazBlue: [Possibly Continuum Shift]
BB 3v3 Teams (Day 1): $3 per person
BB Singles (Day 2): $5 per person

Singles:
2/3 matches, Double Elim.
Character changing allowed on loss
There will be a second station on a PS3, that station will be set to arcade style (So no AH’s or Bang Install music!)
Infinites are allowed, but not game-breaking glitches (I’m looking at you Rachel!)

Teams:
Pokemon Style (Winner stays, next opponent from that team comes up)
Double Blind selection available on request (and highly encouraged).

Hokuto no Ken [aka Fist of the North Star]:
HnK Singles (Day 2): $1 per person

This might take place on arcade, but don’t count on it. It will most likely be on PS2.

Arcana Heart FULL:
AH Singles (Day 2): $1 per person

This is AH1, not AH2. AH2’s PS2 port is horribly laggy and woefully different from the arcade version.

Casuals and exhibitions will take place before and after the tournament.

Twinkle Star Sprites:
TSS Singles (Day 1): $1 per person

2/3 Matches; Double Elim
Character changing allowed on loss
This will be on the arcade machine, so now console exclusive character (Marin, I think her name is).
Boss characters are allowed (Dark Ran, Sprites, Mevious and Memory).

Time ?:??
Casuals and exhibitions will take place before and after the tournament. I’ll be glad to show people how to play this.


I have no idea how many people will enter X game. So as a general guide, here’s how some things will be played out.

If there are 5 or less people, the tournament will be run Round Robin style.
Pot Split will be (not set in stone):
5 or less people: Winner take all
6-9 people: 75/25%
10-40 people: 70/20/10%
41+ people: 65/20/10/5%

I don’t play all these game (I play most of them, though), so if I missed anything in the rules (probably in F/UC and HnK) please let me know so i can correct it.

The times for each individual game will be filled in when I can get the data for it.
