With the vested interest in Ranking Battles among GTASF players, I am announcing the first GTASF RanBat Session.
GAMES: Capcom vs SNK 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, 3rd Strike, Guilty Gear Slash, Alpha 3
DATE: Every 2nd Friday starting January 26th (Check the GTASF Tourney Calandar)
RANBAT SESSION: Four Months
FORMAT: 2/3 Falls Single Elimination. There is a MANDATORY 8 player requirement in effect. The format is to create a quick environment for the tournaments so players can get back to either casual or regular friday evening plans.
ENTRY: There is a one time $10 fee PER GAME to enter the ranbats. After that you only pay for your games. The entries will be held by ORBIT management until the end of the RanBat session.
POINT SYSTEM: 1st = 10 points, 2nd = 7 points, 3rd = 5 points, 4th = 3 points. The points not only go towards overall ranking but determine ranks at the next tournament two weeks later.
PRIZE PAYOUT: The $10 entry fee will go into a prize pool. The pooled money will be given out at the end of the RanBat session in a 70/20/10 distribution.
This thread will be updated through the four month period.
I work every Friday and will have no participation in these sessions short of randomly having the night off. It’ll be up to the players to find reliable directors (I suggest getting co-directors in case one can’t show that week) to keep the RanBats running consistently.
Good luck to everyone.
