You need to state the prizes before hand, to give people incentive to come.

P.S. The current pause rule is too generous. This gives everyone 1 do-over per match. Need to be strict about this stuff. You pause, you lose the round.

P.P.S. Tournaments are usually best 2/3, double elim, with the finals being 3/5. You may run into time problems with everything at 3/5.


#3

Thanks for your comment. This is the first tourny im hosting so any advice on structure is welcome.


#4

I’ll be attending this tournament. Oh and what system will SF4 be on and will be there a stick provided to play on or we have to use pads?


#5

Haha, thats my hood I’m there!
-Will it be on ps3/360? Can we bring/use sticks?


#6

You may bring whatever controller/ arcade stick you like. Please be accountable for anything you bring label it to know that it is yours. If you wish personal belongings maybe checked in behind the counter. Also HD and SF IV will be on whichever system it is requested for the most ( I see it being PS3) SF3S will be on PS2.


#7

Ok cool


#8

So we have to be there @ 5:30 or could we just show up a few mins before sf4 time?


#9

Your starting sf4 at 11pm.


#10

Eh sorry I’ll make that clear in the revision. Please look above.


#11

Yes it is beginning at 11 PM. There may also be food for everyone at some point.


#12

is this still on or is it being delayed? word is gamecrazys across the land are delaying the release by a day.


#13

Yes The following tournament is postponed because of this delay until further notice


#14

So its not happening anymore? :wonder:


#15

the tournament is back on as planned although the prizes will be changed slightly


#16

What prizes will be changed?


#17

The SFIV prize will be changed since there will be no tournament sticks arriving for today. It will change into the dollar value of the tournament stick on a gift card. Also there will be no copies of SFIV for purchase due to the shipping delay. Also due to this issue SFIV will only be played on the Xbox 360.


#18

Ah no midnight release! :sad:
Do you guys know when you will be getting SF4 in? I have my TE and sf4 reserved at another game crazy and wondering if you guys were on the same schedule. :sweat:
-I’ll be in attendance though. :wgrin:
