Box Arena SSFIV 2v2 Ranking Battles 1.3 - San Diego, CA - June 26, 2010

The Box Arena is implementing a new battle system. To stray away from
the usual singles ranking battle format, we’ve introduced a doubles
ranbats system.

Current Ranbat Results

Season Pot to Date: **$630

**Point Totals:

[]ShadyK - 20
]Tatsu, Warahk - 11
[]Mike Ross, SannSann - 10
]Moval, Fuson - 4
[]Pimpbot, Steinmania, Yeb, Alexman - 1
Next Ranbat
* - June 26, 2010
**Sign-ups and Casuals- 5pm - 6:30pm PST
Tournament and Stream Starts on the Dot @ 7pm


In our system, the matches will be played SBO style; in translation,
Team A,B versus Team 1,2 where A plays 1 and B plays 2. If A,B or 1,2
both win their matches, their team wins. If One player from each team
wins they play each other for the game.

A wins and B wins, match is over
1 wins and 2 wins, match is over

A wins and 2 wins, A plays 2 for the game
B wins and 1 wins, B plays 1 for the game

As for team generation, anything goes. This is to further create more
possible strategies and intermingling. At the end of the ranbat
season, the one person with the highest points wins the ranbat season
prize pool.

Point system

We are running the Japanese Style ranked battles point system. Each
player from each team will be recieving these points based on their

1st= 10 points each
2nd= 7 points each
3rd= 4 points each
4th= 1 points each

Only (4) teams are getting points to ensure proper seeding for the
next ranbats. Therefore, only top (4) four will be seeded in each
ranked battle.


per ranbat the payout is 70% and 30%

additional prizes per ranbat include Madcatz merch and Gamestop gift cards(Courtesy of Lex of Gamestop in South San Diego)

$7/person ($14/team)

1st Ranbat joined is $12 (<-- initial $5 to season pot is added to usual buy in of $7)

$2 --> Season Pot

$1—> House

$4—> That events prize pool

In the case of more than one person having the highest score at the end of the season, the winners can decide to split equally or play each other for the winnings (if more that 2 a round robin could be played out)

Team Blue Dream

Watts - Combusted


A San Diego local had mentioned to me that the Box Arena used to run some HDR tournies and would consider adding it to the roster if there was enough interest. I wanted to confirm that this was in fact true? If so, I’ll definitely get the word out to some of the LA HDR plyrs to head down for this.


Shady K / Mike Ross - Secret Weapon

There has been a lot of interest ever since Willy’s skateshop had their ST tournament . Kui and Frankfresh are very big advocates of HDR in the box arena. As of right now, we are trying to gauge if there really is enough interest for HDR-only or HDR side tourneys during SSFIV tourneys. If there’s an audience, it all depends on logistics, resources, and man-power to run HDR. Our hands are all tied up trying to run the most efficient SSF4 tourneys so running a bad HDR tourney alongside it would go against our philosophy of forming the box arena.

Rest assured, we do have plans for it. But don’t expect anything till after EVO.

Sounds good. Thanks for replying back.
