BRING YOUR OWN STICK THIS IS CONSOLE. someone asked me if they needed to bring there own pad/stick im sure someone will let you borrow one but yeah people prefer there own arcade sticks compared to other peoples
Hotel A is the one we are at. So when looking at the map choose A.
Basically just stay on the highway the whole way untill you reach brownsville. Then just look for and take the Alton Gloor exit. The exit takes you right in front of the hotel you can’t miss it.

‘’’’’‘DUE TO TIME LIMITES ON THE VENUE (gotta be out at midnight we might have to book a few more hours but that will be last minute) I WILL BE VERY STRICT ON MATCHES. YOU HAVE 2 MINUTES TO GET TO YOUR STATION WHEN YOU ARE CALLED OR YOUR MATCH WILL BE FORFEITED. NO REFUNDS FOR THIS EITHER ITS YOUR FAULT. I will try and go around missing players but if your not there and your match is holding things up DQed it is. Please let me or whoever is helping me run tournaments know if you will be missing (bathroom, other matches your playing in, etc.)’’’’’’
3S, GGXXSlash, and T5DR
At sign up of team tournament each individual of each team will be asked to choose a character they will stay with for the duration of the tournament each player must choose a different character then the one chosen by his partner (ex. TeamABC signs up for 3S, player 1 chooses Ken, player 2 must choose someone else that is not Ken and they must stick with these characters for the entire tournament)
