*Canceled*World Gaming Presents, "War at the Shore '09" *Details Inside*

9/18/09

**The tournament has been canceled due to no fault of our own. We were only hired to run the friday night events + Brawl and SF4 on Saturday. I got a call saying the tournament was canceled because the sponsors pulled out. The hotel said they wanted them to pay for all of the rooms reserved for the tourney($43,000 worth). The sponsors said no and canceled the tournament. I don’t know why they didn’t just cancel the reservations so they wouldn’t have to pay for the rooms and just have the tournament with out them. Sorry for the short notice guys To make up for this we might try and run a tournament in MD on the 3rd and make it as big an event as possible. Detailsfor that will come soon
**

Hello, this is VG BOOT CAMP, For those of you who don’t know us we are Matthew (Aposl) and Calvin (God-Is-My-Rock) Lofton and Alex Margaritas(Hat). (We are better know in the Smash Community). We have been hired to run Brawl and SF4 at this tourney and have not been put in charge of any other aspect of this event. We mention this only to alleviate any questions that are not in our power to answer, and any actions that are not in our power to change. We did not set the prices, we have merely been hired to get the event done in a professional manner. Thank you for your patience.

Rules

Super Smash Brothers Brawl

-Please arrive on time. If you are late, I can not guarantee you a spot in whatever tourney you are late for.
-There are no refunds.

  • Whether you are in a tourney or not, if you are in the venue you must pay the venue fee.
  • DO NOT LOAD YOUR GAME THROUGH THE HOMEBREW CHANNEL!!! . If you would like unlimited length replays enabled, I will use my own personal sd card to load the game (sorry I can’t trust anyone without knowledge of what codes they have on).
    -Trash talking is allowed, and is encouraged! We love the hype! However, please do not distract the players too much at their discretion. Respect their right to focus on a match.
  • Any destruction of anyone’s property at the venue will not be tolerated, and in the case of such an event, you will be asked to leave.
  • No drugs, alcohol, or any crap like that in there. If you have any, you will be kicked out.
    -You may not be a commentator on the live stream without first having consent by myself, or any other approved tourney helper there. If you are commentating on the live stream, please act professional. Focus more on the match at hand instead of giving people tons of shutouts in the chat. No cursing at all. By all means keep it lively and fun though. all have an awesome time!

Singles:

3 Stock

8 Minute Time Limit

No Items

If you need to add your name to change your controls, please remember to do so, and do it quickly. You should not quit in the middle of a match if you realize your controls are wrong.

First round consists of all characters being chosen by a blind pick. The first stage will then be determined by a stage strike method. Players take turn striking out neutral stages until only one stage remains, which is the stage that is played. After the first match is over, each player bans one stage that can not be used in counterpicks.

Match two/three will first consist of the previous loser picking a stage, then the previous winner picking their character, and finally the previous loser picking their character.

You may not counterpick a stage you have already won on earlier that set.

Neutral Stages:

o Battlefield
o Final Destination
o Smashville
o Yoshi’s Island (Brawl)
o Lylat Cruise

  • Counterpick Stages:

o Delfino Plaza
o Castle Siege
o Frigate Orpheon
o Battleship Halberd
o Rainbow Cruise
o Brinstar
o Pokemon Stadium 1

-The 50 Ledge Grab Rule will be in effect, until the community as a whole comes up with a set number, we will make the limit 50 grabs. If the game ends with the time running out and your stats show that you went over 50 ledge grabs, you will automatically lose that round. If both people go over 50, then participating players Who ever has the highest stock and or lowest percentage on that stock will win. If both player have the same stock and percentage when the timer runs out, then a 1 stock rematch will occur.

-Standing Infinites are BANNED which include (but not limited to) Dedede’s small-step chain grab.
-Ice Climber things are legal, as long as they aren’t used for stalling.
-If there is a dispute over controller ports, play Rock Paper Scissors for it (best 2 out of 3, no items, FD only).

  • Suicide Move Rules: (all situations are when both players are at 1 stock)
    o If a player successfully ends the match with either Bowser or Ganondorf’s over B attack by suicide, then the player who initiated the move wins.
    o If a player ends the match by swallowing with Kirby or DDD and falling off the stage and the game counts it as a tie the one who initiated the move will win the round

Doubles:

  • Same standard rules and stages as singles.
  • Chibo’s Color-Blind Rule: If a player on a team is using a character that might make it tough to determine the teams color (like Sonic, Lucario, or Pokemon Trainer), they are allowed to request control of a certain color to help lessen confusion.
    -Stock sharing is allowed.
    -Team Attack is on

#2

interesting. ill prolly be there for sf4.

sorry if i missed this in the post somewhere but are these gonna be cash prizes or random checks to be recieved 4 months down the line?


#3

The Blazblue Doubles sound good. Nice variety of games too.


#4

The SF4 matches on PS3 or 360?


#5

ps3, and we’ll prolly have at least 1 xbox setup.

I’m not sure if payouts are gonna be in cash or check form. If it’s gonna be in check form it will be delivered in 2 to 3 weeks though.


#6

This sounds interesting


#7

Make BB singles and im in this bitch.


#8

Since when were payouts ever not in cash?? :confused:


#9

Ninja Zephyr will be in for SF4 singles and doubles. From Philly!


#10

Thanks for the support guys.

But where’s the HYPE?!?


#11

this guy…
i can vouch for these fellas. helped them run one of their other tournies.
small tournout, but fun nonetheless.

as for the company hiring them, World Gaming, dont know who they are.
but for a $1k payout, why not?


#12

I maybe there, depends on if my Hero is there or not…


#13

I can be your hero baby

Dont worry im coming.


#14

I’m in there.


#15

Two things:

Why aren?t the SF4 matches on 360? There are more players that rock on 360 than PS3. That?s just comment sense.

Since when the pot payouts in form of a check? This has never been heard of and very its shady IMO. I think if you change those two things you may get more support. This is from experience of helping running a tourney.


#16

PS3 is tournament standard.

Check payout isn’t unheard of. It’s what tends to happen when you’re dealing with sponsors.


#17

who are the sponsors?


#18

sign me up for SF4, and who is going to be my Blaz Blue team mate.


#19

now accepting applications for my SFIV teammate.


#20

lol I need a teammate as well, I’m assed out :frowning:
