Knight Slash 1.5 Bi-Weekly: New Brunswick NJ, December 4, 2010


If you are willing to bring a setup with you, mention that you will bring it in this thread and/or send me a pm so the club can make appropriate preparations.

***Edit: Now, we know this event is on the same day as NEC in Philly. So I’m guessing its safe to assume a lot of people won’t even consider coming to this event. We can try to change the event date, but Rutgers will charge us money to do so, since we have the rooms reserved for that particular time and day. However, if some of you guys can’t make it to NEC, feel free to come down.

Pretty dumb of us to lock in the room on that particular day and not realize NEC was the same exact weekend until the last minute. =/***

Counterpick Rule: The loser of the match first chooses the stage that the next match of the set will be played on. The opponent, then, makes the choice of changing character or not. than the loser of the match selects his/her character.


Pause Rule : If you pause during a match you lose a stock. The only exception is to call a TO over for a ruling or an issue. It is at the TOs discretion to decide if the issue is worth pausing over.

? Excessive "Stalling"tactics are banned.
? Controller Mods are banned
Violation of any rule is punishable by non-refunded disqualification.

In the event of a TIE at the end of the time limit, the player with the most stocks wins. If both players have one stock then it is decided by percentage. If both players have ONE STOCK and SAME PERCENTAGE the players will quit the SUDDEN DEATH, set the stock to one, and start a match with stage being the same as where they had the tie. This will determine the winner.
(later edits will be made if necessary)

Parking Info: Since it’s the weekend, you should be able to park right behind the student center. I promise you shouldn’t get a ticket. If you do, you can take your anger and aggression all out on me.
