Arcade Infinity Presents: THE LAST HURRAH! SSF4 Console Singles Tournament 1/9?


#1

The news of AI closing on January 15th, 2011 has been making the rounds on SRK.

Personally, I’ve been going to AI since 2005 (not for any fighting games back then) but it has been a great contributing factor to where I stand in the fighting game community, the people I met, etc. I can go on but this post is not for a personal statement… I’m sure, if you’ve ever been a regular at AI at some point in your life, it means as much to you as it does to me.

With that said, here we go:

This is the last time you will get to experience the OG-Triple-OG, longest-running, the most hype tournament action at AI.

Also, Shoo has returned.

** *** Arcade Infinity Presents: THE LAST HURRAH! SSF4 Console Singles Tournament *** **

Pre-reg on this thread to reserve your spot, and in-person registration & fee collection will take place at 1:30pm.

Entry fee:
$5 to the pot + $3 venue fee = $8 to enter

    Payout is the standard 70/20/10 for top 3 placers.

Rules:
Basically EVO Ruleset.

  1.  2 out of 3 rounds, 99-second rounds
    
  2.  Double-elimination, 2 out of 3 sets for both Winners & Losers Bracket; 3 out of 5 sets for Grand Finals. Losers finalist must win two sets against Winners finalist, while Winners finalist only needs to win one
    
  3.  No characters banned
    
  4.  Only loser may switch characters; however, you may change your Ultra at any time
    
  5.  IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ: As the tourney will be run on modified arcade cabinets with start buttons out of your reach, ***pausing the game will result in forfeiting that round**, unless:
    
  • both players agree to carry on by un-pausing
  • paused during Ultra animation that is not input-intensive**
  • input-intensive Ultras include Balrog (U1), Adon (U1), El Fuerte (U1), M. Bison (U2), Rufus (U2), etc.

**Seeding: **
Members of top-placing teams from the last 3v3 tournament will be seeded. This is final and you may NOT ask the bracket runners for seeding (aka DJ Vest) or risk PERMABAN from all events run in whole or in part by Shoo, DJ Divine, or other affiliates.

Questions:
PM me.

**UPDATE: I need volunteers to bring console setups (preferably PS3) to help run the tournament faster. Please let me know on this thread, by PM, or any way you know to contact me (phone, text, facebook, etc.) If you’re also playing in the tournament, your venue fee will be waived (for full setups only – partial setups will result in partial discounts for each individual). You still have to put in tokens if you’re to play on the arcade cabinet setup.

Station 1: “used to be vanilla” side-by-side cabinet
Station 2: “used to be cramped” side-by-side cabinet
