  • 2 DAY EVENT
  • ALL TOURNAMENT GAMES WILL BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF EACH DAY
  • THIS MEANS FINALS WILL BE AT NIGHT FOR EACH GAME PLAYED

Top 5 reasons why everybody should attend this event for both days, Sat. & Sun. (Dec. 11th & 12th)

1) You can find a Hotel in the La Crosse/Onalaska area for cheap (Around $50-$70 a night). Link up with 3 other people and that’s only $32.50 each for 2 nights if the cost is $65 per night. Also, the venue fee is only $5!

2) The tournament will be a fun place to meet up & play against other top level players. There will be area’s devoted for free play, especially for fighter fans! Feel free to BYOS & BYOC.

3) Watch some good old competition on Sat. & Sun., the SSFIV randoms tournament will get very interesting, get ready for some upsets! Also, play in some of the side tournaments!

4) Sponsors at the event will be giving away some cool stuff on Saturday & Sunday. When I say cool stuff, I don’t mean things like key chains, I mean good stuff like gaming accessories, consoles, etc. etc.

5) Focus Fire will be running a live feed at the event, you may get a chance to get on the live feed and show your skills off to the world!

Important notes about this event:

  • Sign ups will not be accessible online on December 9th as we will be starting to organize the many brackets.
  • If for some reason you do not pre-reg, don’t worry, we will allow people to sign up at the event (emergency sign ups), but the cost will be $20 per player.
  • The schedule can be found HERE.

Important Note #3 - PUBLICITY: There will be professional live broadcasts with commentary at the event. For now it is known that Keits & Okame will be 2 of the main commentators. There will be 2 main stages with 2 completely separate live broadcasts happening at the same time, one for the FPS games and one for the fighter games. We are doing our very best to promote this tournament. We anticipate full brackets for most tournament games and a busy stream. More information on the live feeds will be available soon.

Important Note #4 - COST: See registration details above for tournament entry costs. There will be a $5 venue fee for all players and spectators each day. Wristbands will be given to all tournament contestants.

Important Note #5 - PAYOUTS: Top finishers in a tournament will split the pot like so: 70%/20%/10% (100% payout from tournament entrance fee). or example, if 100 people enter a tournament, the total prize pool for that tournament will be $1000 ($100 x 10), paying out $700 to first place (70% of $1000), $200 to second place (20% of $1000), and $100 to third place (10% of $1000). More info on prizes.

Important Note #6 - PLAYERS: Super Street Fighter IV will be capped at 256 players. All other fighter games will be capped at 64 players except HDR w/ 128 players. Spots will fill up fast, so please do not delay signing up if you want to play.

Important Note #7 - BRACKETS: This will be a double elimination style event for all games. We will also try to keep players from the same state/ area from playing one another early in the tournament. If we do not fill up a bracket for some reason, BYE’s will be given at random.

Important Note #8 - SIGN UP: Sign up for as many tournaments as you’d like! The more the merrier.

Important Note #9 - V.I.P: There will be a special lounge area for V.I.P members only. Free food, beverages comfortable seating and gaming setups will be included in this area.

Players and spectators may upgrade their pass to V.I.P for a $25 additional fee per day.

Important Note #10 - EQUIPMENT: We will not provide controllers for the fighter game tournaments. You will need to bring your own. We are doing this to try and minimize down time (i.e. somebody waiting for a stick they can use). We will be using PS3 consoles for most of the fighting games.

Important Note #11 - SETUPS: If you would like to bring your own setup (BYOS), meaning t.v. and gaming system, there will be a small section with tables, chairs and T.V.'s that you may use. You may also want to host side tournaments as well, it’s up to you!

Remember I got a spot saved right? Sounds good but the only downfall is the whole checks for winnings over 600. Didn’t know we had that law in wi. Can you post the other games you’ll be running. I got some teams interested in coming down for cod


#3

sup munn3y

check Focus-Fire for info on all of the other events… we’ve got a lot of time into the site and hope it covers most questions, but anything we didn’t cover we’d be happy to answer…

Sports games include FIFA and Madden
FPSs include team Halo Reach and CoD Black Ops, as well as doubles tourneys.

TONS of stuff happening. We had a number of side games (Left4Dead,TF2, Forza) at the last one, and hope to include even more this time around.

Going to look into the logistics of having taxes precalculated and handing out cash… there’s just so many things to do :wow:


#4

Ok thanks. I’ve been spreading the word about this tournament to all the cod/halo/sf players I know so hopefully there’s a good showing for all tournys be run.


#5

i like it Evan I’ll be sure to make it to this one I’ve missed the last one because of weddings and family. I’m pretty sure there isn’t anything going on that weekend! last one was huge im sure this one will be twice as big !


#6

Ill be thereeee


#7

Oh shit. Jwong comin. I hope that wasn’t the big announcement? Is it gonna be setup like last time oir is there more space that u guys didn’t use last time.


#8

Glad to hear Jwong is comin. Justin needs to empty his inbox imo.
That wasn’t the big announcement… We’ve got a top secret meeting tomorrow.
We’re going to give fighters a LOT more room this go-around. Still have 18,000 sq ft… just going to arange things differently this time.


#9

I’ll be there as well. Is there a way to sign up before hand to save a seat?


#10

Registration opens Aug 18th.

edit reason: backend. paypal working no confirmation emails. sit tight.


#11

Hey. I think its best to have pre regs in mid to late september. It gives more time for ppl to see the posting and to plan accordingly. If you open it up to soon, the slots might fill up to fast and then ppl who find out later on won’t have a chance to register I.e. Some top player who found out too late and can’t register. Just and idea I’m suggesting. It just gives you more time to advertise and more time for ppl to plan.


#12

no hype? wow alot to give out this time around.


#13

@ munn3yx

Capping the tournament at 256 players for SSFIV & 128 players for HDR.


#14

Yeah. I think scrapping the 128 man bracket is good. That’s why I brought up the idea of holding off on the aug 18th registration til later. I talked to ppl at the gng championship this past weekend in minnesota and ppl thought the early reg wasn’t a good idea. I’m glad that its open bracket now so hopefully more ppl show up.


#15

lol sorry i will empty


#16

With that high of a cash prize, you should ask the mods to make a sticky.


#17

im sure it’ll be sticky its probably just to early too… no worries its gonna be hype… jwong calling it out he’s gonna be there… we’ll see if he’ll run over the competition or we’ll see someone step up to the challenge… it’ll be exciting


#18

Smooth, come to the shop more. I need some more practice and training.


#19
