[Apr 22, 2012] Arcade UFO Ranbat Series Season 6 (Austin, TX)


#1

Arcade UFO’s Ranbat Season 6 will consist of SSF4: Arcade Edition Version 2012 (arcade version) and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (PS3 version) as the main games, and take place every Sunday night over the course of 10 weeks, with 5 tournaments for each game.

Returning for this Ranbat season will be KOF13 (PS3 version) and we’ll be featuring Soul Calibur 5 (PS3 version) as a fresh new addition! KOF13 will be paired up with AE, and Soul Calibur 5 with Marvel.

We will be ALTERNATING weeks for each game. So, if one week is SSF4:AE / KOF13, the following week will be MVC3 / SC5.

Single Elimination

Why Single Elimination? We are doing Single Elimination for these events for several reasons: the frequency of the events, the cheap entry fee, and to keep the time-commitment low for everyone. This will keep the matches exciting and you won’t have to stay up too late to experience the whole thing!

Top 8

If you make it to Top 8, the bracket will be reset and become a standard 2/3 Double Elimination format. This is so we can get accurate point standings, and give it the feel of a bigger tournament!

Rules:

Prizes!

The 1st Place point holders for SSF4:AE, UMVC3 and KOF13 will each face off with the grand champion of Ranbat Season 5, which are Viet, GoX and Cupcake Panda, respectively. An exhibition match will take place between the two champions, and the winners will be rewarded with full sponsorship to Evo World Championships 2012, consisting of plane ticket fare + a shared hotel room with the other game’s champions. If you win both Ranbat seasons for SSF4:AE, UMVC3 or KOF13 respectively, you will automatically qualify!

The 1st Place point holder for Soul Calibur 5 will also be sponsored to Evo, consisting of a plane ticket fare + shared hotel room with the other game’s champions!

If you have already planned your Evo trip by the time the Ranbats have concluded in June (which you should!), you may show us a receipt of your plane fare and we will reimburse it.

We want the winners to represent Austin’s amazing scene, and will have our full support to perform your best!

We’ll also have some nice things for the runners-up, as always, so don’t give up if you’re behind on points. Come and have fun, and moreover, prepare yourself mentally for the pressure of a World Championship.

Thanks for your continued support!

Ranbat news!! This Sunday of course marks the final Ranbat of the Pre-Evo Season, with the games being SSF4:AE and KOF13. This is going to be a DECISIVE event, as Viet has forfeited his spot to Evo due to work.

POZERWOLF is the 2nd place point holder in SSF4:AE for Ranbat Season 5. That means he will face the champion of Season 6 after the final ranbat concludes to determine who will win the sponsorship. Blue Shirt is currently in 2nd place behind Viet with 13 points, which means that any player that currently has 3 points are higher has a chance of making it to the top of Season 6, since the winner scores 10 points!

This is a list of players in this category who still have a chance to win 1st place:

Blue Shirt - 13
Isiah - 9
INNOCENT - 8
Ray - 7
Dragoon - 7
Yatchinator - 5
Earthworm Vince - 5
Kenji - 5
JDragonX - 5
Carbo - 4
fubarduck - 3
Jerry - 3

In KOF13, Vishema (Ben) is the only one with a chance of taking out Cupcake Panda for the top spot and forcing a playoff situation. He must get either 1st or 2nd place.
