Neither sticks nor pads or converters will be provided for anyone so please make sure you bring your own. We will not hold the tournament for anyone not having a device to play on so I suggest you get that taken care off ahead of time. All games are to be played on Xbox360 minus the mystery game which will be on a separate system and controllers will be provided for that.
If you are going to be late signing up for a game that has already started you will not be accommodated into the brackets unless the matches are still on the first round of the bracket and there is also a open bye to spot you in. If we are able to get you into the bracket then keep in mind that it will be an extra 5 dollar fee to the already 10 charge for whatever game it is you are signing up for. With that being said it is highly recommended that you please make sure to be on time to sign up and if you are gonna be late for whatever reason but have a friend attending also, have them sign you up and pay your fees!
