Hotel Reservation Link: https://gc.synxis.com/rez.aspx?Hotel=12552&Chain=5968&group=UPPER+CUT+CIRCUIT

UCC will be held at the American Airlines Training Conference Center in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. There will be guest rooms available for $69.99 per night (note: they will only accommodate two people as they are smaller in size). There are single bed and double bed rooms. Be sure to mention that you are attending the ‘UPPER’-Cut Championship video game tournament in order to get the room deal.

The main room has over 3500 square feet of space. There are other open areas as well for registration and sponsors that puts the available space over 5,500 square feet.

There is an onsite cafeteria with very reasonably priced fair, an onsite bar located just next to the outdoor pool. There are also other restaurants within a short distance from the venue.

Check out their website for all the amenities they offer. It is quite a spectacular place.

Just a heads up, for Soul Calibur 5.
A while ago the rules changed to everything 3/5, Viola’s back grab infinite is banned and Hilde’s C2B infinite was banned.

Well a double change has happened so that Hilde’s infinite has been UNBANNEd because it really isn’t an infinite, so ya.

For those who are wondering, the P4A Team Tournament is a charity tournament. This is held solely for supporting the game and fostering team-building your own communities. The hope is for you to have a fun time!!!


#17

Hey guys first time attending a tournament and was curious to know if I’m interpreting the schedule properly. It mentions Friday is the “sign up or else” day so does that mean even if I preregistered I still need to show up day 1 to sign in? If so I need to go make some scheduling arrangements with my job cause I only got sat/sun off thinking Friday would just be teams so I wouldn’t need to worry about showing up. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated =)


#18

Do spectators still have to pay the venue fee?


#19

It’s totally free for spectators


#20

This is not working for me.
