[Aug 26, 2012] Arcade UFO Ranbat Season 5 | SSF4:AE/UMVC3/KOF13/BBCS:EX | Evo... (Austin, TX)


#1

RESULTS Thread coming soon!

Arcade UFO’s Ranbat Season 5 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.

NEW FEATURES for this Ranbat season are KOF13 (PS3 version) and BBCS:EX (arcade version)! KOF13 will be paired up with AE, and BBCS:EX with Marvel. Since the season is happening on Sundays this time around, we’re going to start these events FIRST.

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

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!

Prizes!

The 1st Place point holders for SSF4:AE, UMVC3 and KOF13 will each face off with the grand champion of Ranbat Season 6, which will take place from April to late June. 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!

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 your hotel room (standard Evo rate, shared with at least one person) and we will reimburse your plane fare along with your owed portion for the hotel room.

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 and show us what you can do!

#4

brb, labbing until the 22nd.


#5

yes, now i have a reason to go every week (umvc and kof) :slight_smile:


#6

I heard fighting with conviction leads to victory.


#7

I would love to compete in the MVC3 and SF4 Ranbats! But I work till 830 -____- Any word when the sign ups close?


#8

We close em at 8 on the dot, so if there are any you want to sign up for, the best would be if you could have someone sign up & pay for you before you show up, that will get you into the bracket at least. At that point we can run your match as late as possible–if you’re showing up by around 8:40 we can probably swing this, but if it’s closer to 9, it’s going to be hard since the single elimination portion typically doesn’t last that long.

Of course there’s a chance we’ll start slightly late depending on how things go, but don’t count on it. Try to make arrangements & get there as soon as you can!


#9

Would there be any shame if i signed up but didnt show up on time? I’ll stop by after work tomorrow!


#10
