[Jan 7, 2012] Madison SCIV Tourney #69 (RECRUITMENT VIII) 1/7/12 (Madison WI)

1st off, I want to apologize to you SC Players who look on the shoryuken website for our Madison Tourneys. I am having trouble getting on to the website, logging in at times, so I apologize in advanced for that. If you do or are interested in our tourneys, we are also on facebook http://www.facebook.com/events/269759053082418/?context=create#!/groups/9907214323/ or on 8wayrun.com as well. I will try my best to post on shoryuken as well.

OMG, the new year is gonna be coming. PPL who want to pay their league fees now, please do so. We will not be having another tourney until next month, which means the fees will go up to $20, OMG!!!

Also, please bring ps3’s or tv’s or controllers(cough cough Tomi-san) Any questions facebook me Jimmy Wingleung Choi or call me 608-886-8044(I’m the guys holding a rainbow umbrella for his profile pic).

Also to you other Soul Cal Peeps, we are planning our Soul Calibur 5 League in advanced. I know this is super early before the release date 1/31/11, but it’s better for us to get this started now bc I felt that our SC4 League was great, but I didn’t have enough time to plan everything, so the motivation seemed to be lacking in the end with some members. Not this time.

Here is our [SIZE=6]Madison Soul Calibur 5 League!!![/SIZE]

[SIZE=4]Our Soul Calibur Community will be doing Madison’s SC5 League, which will start around 1st week of February. Everyone who will participate in our tournament must be a member of our League. You will become a member by paying $25.00 by February. However, if you pay earlier, you will pay significantly less for the membership fee.[/SIZE]

Here are the rates(a 1-time rate for membership); if you pay in the month of:
October-$10.00 (OH NO, OVER!!!):sc4nm1:
November-$12.00 (SS, CS, and then CF"D!!! NO MORE $12.00!!!):sc2ivy1:
December-$15.00 (Pay NOW, and if you’re nice I’ll only charge $10.00, NANCHATTE, HURRY AND PAY, or X and Lex will crybaby you forever!!!):sc1xia1::sc2xia1::sc2xia12::sc2xia3:

Now many of you are asking, why this membership fee? What will we get out of this? This money will be used to buy awesome prizes. Like the last SC4 League, we will be splitting the players into tiers, Tier 1 and Tier 2, determined by skill of previous SC Tourneys and by primarily MysticBill and me. But unlike the SC4 League, after about 20 tournaments, we will have a Final 8 Tournament, with the 2 best Tier 1 and 6 Best Tier 2 players, where the top Tier 1 player and the top 2 Tier 2 players will win a prize, with the winner of the 8-man tourney getting to choose from:

[SIZE=7]-HD 23" Monitor TV ($250.00)[/SIZE]
[SIZE=7]-PS3($250.00) OBTAINED!!![/SIZE]
[SIZE=7]-SCVArcade Stick ($175.00)[/SIZE]
[SIZE=7]-Soul Calibur Collections-Artbooks, Figures, Trading Cards ($125.00)[/SIZE]

I put a guesstimation of how much would be needed, and $1000.00 should be an easy target for us. Any leftover money will be used to help improve our community and help tier 2’s enter bigger non-Madison Tourneys like in Chicago or in IA. My proposal is to during a non-Madison Tourney, the top tier 2 players in the prior wk will get the opportunity to go travel with MysticBill and me to a bigger tourney. $10 will go towards gas, and $10 will help the top Tier 2 pay for part of the entry/venue fee; the 2nd best has to pay his/her way. Additional money or funds will help others buy equipment that they may be lacking such as controllers.

THE FINAL 8-MAN Tournament:

It’s important to note that in order for a tier 1 player to win any prize, they HAVE to finish in the top 3. If both Tier 1 players finish 1 and 2, only the 1st place person will win a prize and the 2nd place will lose. IN addition, if you do not pay the membership fee, you will not only be ineligible to enter the Final 8 Tourney, you will also have to pay a higher entry fee in order to enter the tournament, however, you will be eligible to split the pot in the weekly tourneys. The higher amount that you paid will go directly to the Ultimate prize pack in the 8-man tourney, not the weekly money pot. The fourth and final prize will be the “MOST IMPROVED” AWARD to the one that the SC Community feels has improved their game the most, but did not get a prize during the 8-man tourney.


Not paying for the membership will also affect your points that accumulate throughout the SC5 Series. The point system is going to be more complex than the SC4 tourney. Like the last tourney, you will be awarded points based on what your placement was: (example in an 8 man bracket) 7th place=1 point, 5th place-2 pts, 4th=3, 3rd=5, 2nd=7pts, 1st=9pts. That is still the same, but this time you are also rewarded for your wins. For each win in the winner’s bracket you will get +2pts, but for each win in the loser’s bracket you receive, you will only receive 1 point. Non-members will only receive half of their placement points, and one half of their points for their wins. To make it more interesting/strategic and to be forgiving of a possible awful performance in a tournament showing, anyone is allowed to pay $2.00 before the start of the tournament to double their point values ONE TIME ONLY, so think very strategically when you want to do this. This is like a lifeline. One what? ONE TIME ONLY!!! Also playing in a double elimination tournament, if an unseeded player beats a seeded player(4 seeds), they will get +2 bonus points. Seeds will be based on the previous week’s results.


The payout: most tourneys, it’s planned to be $3 for the entry fee. The pot will be split 60-20-10 (10% of the pot going to the ultimate prize pool)in a 4-8 person tourney,
but 9-14 ppl it will be split 50-25-10-5(10% of the pot will go for prize pool)
and 15+ ppl will be split 40-20-15-10-5 (10% of the pot will go to the prize pool) (the 2 t-5th players must fight each other to see who officially will get 5th)
Non-members will pay a $5 entry fee. (The additional 2 dollars will go to the Ultimate Prize pot)

There will be bi-monthly $15 tourneys that will be split 60-25-10-5, none of the entry will be used for the prize pool, but only the those who previously had paid their membership fee will split the pot.
Non-members will pay a $21 entry fee. (The additional $6 will go to the Ultimate Prize pot.)
