[Mar 17, 2012] GDX & Next Level Lan Present: K.UB. - 5 Dollar Footdives... (Winter Park, FL)

-= GDX and Next Level Lan Presents =-


Kid, UR Bad: 5 Dollar Footdives Edition
(aka KUB)

5 Dollar Footdives?

This is a new tourney idea I’ve come up with to see how it works out. There is a lack of activity for brawl in CFL in general, and lack of cheap, credible tourneys in the FGC community. This series will attempt to combine them into a full day of fighting game fun and salt for everyone. Building the community, having fun, hyping dumb matches of games you may not even play, its what this tourney and competitive fighting games are all about.

Every 5 dollar footdives tourney will have 4 events. Two of the events will always be (obviously):

Brawl Doubles
Brawl Singles

The other two events will be FGC events, and will change the games every month. For this first one, we are going for maximum swag points with the inclusion of:

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Street Fighter x Tekken

For those interested, April will be Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition, and Soul Calibur V.

Location & Time:

Venue opens: 11AM

Registration for every game will end 15 minutes before Brawl doubles, and 30 minutes before all other events. Things will actually start on time (or as close to humanly possible on time as a videogame tournament can be). If you do not think you will get here before registration ends for a game, have someone sign you up, or let me know well before the time limit so I can put you in myself.

Start Times:
Brawl Doubles: 12pm noon
Street Fighter x Tekken: 2pm
Brawl Singles: 4pm
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: 6pm

At 8pm, we will start every individual game semis/finals. Every game will be played down to top 4-6 (depending on time constraints), which will then be saved for the finals section. They will go in order of tourneys: (Brawl doubles top 4, then SFxT top 4-6, then Marvel top 4-6, finished off by braw singles top 4. If marvel is not down to top 4 by the time its to be streamed/played, it will switch with brawl singles in stream/play order

Being 5 Dollar Footdives, you can imagine that everything is $5 each:

Door Fee: $5
Brawl Singles: $5
Brawl Doubles: $5
SFxT: $5
UMVC3: $5

For any singles event, if there are 16 or more entrants, payout percentages are as follows:
Singles Payouts A: 40/25/15/10/5/5
If there are 15 or less entrants, payout percentages are as follows:
Singles Payouts B: 50/25/15/10

For Brawl doubles, anything over 8 teams will have the payout percentages:
Doubles Payouts A: 50/25/15/10
For Brawl doubles, for 7 teams or less:
Doubles Payouts B: 60/25/15

100% of the pot will go back out to the players. Absolutely no pot rape of any kind. You pay the door fee once, no matter how many games you enter. Spectating is free, but friendlies/casuals will always have to be stopped immediately for tourney matches when necessary

If you would like to play on the PCs within the computer portion of NLL, you will still have to pay for hours.

Setups are definitely going to be necessary. I am able to provide a full setup for XBOX 360 and Wii. We need 4 setups at the minimum per game. If you have a setup, or at least part of a setup, please bring it. Next Level Lan has some CRT tvs that aren’t being used, so bring everything you can. I will have a disc of every game aside from the single consoles as well. This being Florida, I can imagine the 360 setups are much easier to produce.

Also if you have any spare PC microphones that would also help. My current streaming equipment only composite inputs, but I do have a cables for both 360 and wii to fit.

For those who do bring a full setup for any game, you will get entry into a drawing to where two different winners will get reimbursed their $5 door fee by me personally (which you can then use at a Subway down the street if you really want to :laugh: )

Misc Notes:
I will be putting the brackets on paper for every game. If someone could assist me with running a bracket for a game I may either not play, or may be busy with something else, it would be greatly appreciated.

Granted I’m able to get the microphones, commentary should be open. I only ask that you commentate a game to where you could do serious commentary if you HAD to (aka you play the game). Aside from that, just bring hype to the commentary and I’m good. This isn’t E-sports style

Any questions/comments/concerns feel free to post in here or AIM me at GameDragonX. If you get lost you can give me a call at 863-934-2355. you can also hit me up on Facebook under Keith Kelly
