[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Gaming will take place inside the Breezy Excursion warehouse and at Hurtswell Tattoo Co. (the suite next door). There is an abundance of parking directly in front of the venue so you won’t have to worry about parking your car far from the entrance.

Each game will have a maximum cap of 32 contestants per game.[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Frequently Asked Questions[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: I only payed $5 for the venue fee last time and now this time around it’s $15 for the venue? What gives?[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]A: Exactly. What gives? We give. Last BOTB every paying entrant received 2 magazines, a gang of stickers, free canned soda, free bottled water, and 5 raffle tickets that gave the entrant the chance to win custom hand-painted fighting game artwork, tee shirts, hats, and jackets. You can bet your sweet gaming ass that there will be even more free goodies, drinks, raffles, and more…[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: What system are we playing on?[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]A: Xbox 360[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: What is double elimination?[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]A: Say you lose a 2 out of 3 match set against your opponent, this will knock you into the losers bracket. This means you still have 1 more chance at going undefeated in a 2 out of 3 match set throughout the rest of the tournament to win in the grand finals![/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: What other sponsors will be at the event?[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]A: Fighting game paraphernalia such as tee shirts, hats, 1-of-a-kind custom fighting game artwork, posters, and more. Can’t spill the beans on all of the goodies![/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: What is the tournament max cap per game?[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]
[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]A: 32 players max per game[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

[FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial][FONT=Arial]Q: How do I know I’m going to have a good time at the event? I don’t wanna waste my hard earned money on a whack ass event!!![/FONT][/FONT][/FONT]

Santa Cruz
3/16/13 - Breezy Excursion 3rd Strike Tournament. San Jose, CA - Bay Area 3S come through!
#2

would you guys consider running marvel 3/5 throughout?


#3

I was told by multiple players that the 3/5 Marvel rules that I used last time were “odd” and that it made the Marvel matches much longer than it should have been. I don’t mind using 3/5 for Marvel if that’s what the participants want.


#4

yeah i don’t know who these players you are talking about are, but 3/5 is pretty much the standard these days for umvc3 tournaments. 3/5 would be preferred if at all possible
