There’s been a good amount of interest in seeing this tournament happen, so consider it ON! :rock:
Each region is appointed a team captain that will pick their team however they see fit. I’ll be coordinating this and working with people to make sure we have all the proper equipment and the space to run and record this thing.
Here’s the details:
Where: At Evo. Probably in the main room, but that’s TBD.
When: 7pm on Friday July 17th
Why: 'Cause SF2 kicks ass!
North CA - John Choi (Ryu), Graham Wolfe (Balrog), Sirlin (Fei?)
South CA - Alex Valle (Bison?), AfroLegends (Balrog?), Watson (?)
North East - Damdai (Ken?), Nohoho (Blanka), Sabin (Sim), Paul Wall (Bison)
South East - Mavrick (Bison), nothingx (Vega), MPR (Honda)
Northwest - Jason Cole (Dhalsim), Apoc, Julian Beasly
Midwest - Wes Truelson (Ken), NKI (Bison), Josh the Funk Doc (Balrog), Grog (Sim), Syxx (Cammy)
Southwest - Sabre (Ken?)
International - Thelo (Honda), Laugh (Bison), Psychochronic (Chun), ShinAkuma204 (Sagat), Ryan Hart (Ken)
Remixed graphics / sound
Whatever mode Evo is using - currently 4:3
Matches will run in Versus Mode, Speed 3, 2/3 Rounds
Akuma is banned
Each team is made up of 5 members
Each player must use a single character throughout the entire tourney.
Each team can only have one of each character. (ex. No all Bison team)
Players must live in the region they represent.
Double elimination per team.
Matches are done elimination style. So, team member 1 on each team plays a single game - the winner stays. When one team is out of members, they lose.
Teams *can *switch the order of their team members for each set.
The only major thing left to figure out is how to assemble the International team. I’d love to hear any ideas you guys have about this. Also, we’ll have to figure out who’s coming. NKI/Nohoho - do you guys have any idea who is coming from Japan? And does anyone know if any big names are coming from Europe, Australia, Canada, Mexico, etc?
If anyone objects to any of this or can think of anything that hasn’t been addressed, please bring it up!
Get HYPE! :woot:
