It’s been a couple of months since we were able to do a tourny, and I blame that both on my own schedule and the fact that we’re knee deep in the Evo qualifier season. Now that we’re back, I wanted to kick it up and bring something a little special. That being said, we will host this monthly as part of
FRAGFinity is a local LAN group that has been doing events for a while now. This is one of their yearly deals that is an all-weekend, free venue event. Best of all, they offer free prizes from their sponsors. For more information on the LAN stuff, visit the facebook link above as well as their homepage.
But you want to know about the fighters, right?
WHEN: June 23rd, 2012. Please note that the event starts on the 22nd and goes until the 24th, but our stuff is only on the 23rd. Don’t let that stop you from participating in all 3 days if you’re a LAN monster!
WHAT: SFxT, UMvC3, SF 2k12, SC5, KoF XIII, MK [all singles], and anything else you want to play. We have space for as long as we want, essentially, so we can run anything that anyone wants in addition to these listed.
Sign-ups start at 2 PM. I’m not expecting a ridiculous turnout, and since I have to drive a little ways as well for this, I see no reason to get everyone up too early.
SC5: 3/5 rounds, 2/3 matches until finals, then it’ll switch to 3/5 matches.
SSF4:AE: 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches until finals, then 3/5 matches.
SFxT: 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches until finals, then 3/5 matches.
MvC3: 2/3 matches until finals, then 3/5 matches.
KoF: 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches until finals, then 3/5 matches. [3v3 Team Battle]
MK: 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches until finals, then 3/5 matches.
Finals are considered to be Losers Finals, Winners Finals, and Grand Finals. Double-elimination for all.
ENTRY FEE: EF will be $5 for everything. Pot split will be standard 70/20/10 [1st/2/3], although I may take the liberty to round numbers to make the payouts easier.
RULES: For the most part, I’m not a stickler on rules for these things, but please avoid doing glitches and whatnot. I wouldn’t want to have to uppercut people for being lametards. I did want to specifically address systems, though. Generally speaking, we’ll be PS3 heavy, but officially we’re going to do a mix. I know the SF crowd likes playing on XBOX and 3d folks like PS3. So, whatever is available is what we’ll play on, which means bring both PS3 and XBOX sticks or converters, if you play on pad. Anything else that pops up I’ll make a decision on at that time.
PRIZES/EXTRAS: As I mentioned before, they do have prizes at this event. Although there’s nothing specifically for us FG players, they are working on adding our expected attendance to the overall attendance of the event to try to get us some additional goodies. Even if they don’t, though, remember that there’s no reason you can’t participate in the LAN stuff and get in on some of those prizes. If you are going, please mark it on facebook; it helps the sponsorship cause.
RANDOM NOTES: As always, if you can bring something, please do. Monitors are the best since they’re so fucking easy to move around and hook up. But, if you have extra systems/stick, please bring them.
