Call the hotel so they can pick you up with the shuttle. If you want you can walk to the hotel also. Get off the train and walk down to the road outside of the doraville train station. Cross over the road and head down hill towards buford hwy. You should see the doraville police station as you walk down the hill on the right hand side. When you get to "buford hwy" turn left. Then go until you get to a WAFFLE HOUSE ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE ROAD. You turn right at the waffle house. and you should see the Holiday inn in the cut! Easy if you want to walk from the station.

Introduction:

1st of all as always I would like to thank all of the people that support FINAL ROUND tournaments and support the ATL South Fighting Game scene. With the help of the community supporting (Final Round) every year it has grown into one of the best tournaments in the usa and a staple Major Tournament in the Fighting Game Community! The history of FINAL ROUND is based on the"Console Warriors" style tournament and this year we will usher in the NEW ERA of fighting games for the begining of the Major 2010 tournament season! New games like Blazeblu, King Of Fighters 12, and Tekken6 BR will join the staple fighters like Street Fighter 4, GGxxAC, and Super Smash Brothers Brawl to make this years event one to remember!

With that said, I grew up learning how to play fighters in the arcades. I’ve always want to keep that old school tournament feeling with FR tournaments. That’s why we have some old school capcom games that will be played only on an arcade cabinet at Final Round. We can’t forget our roots and I won’t let people forget how we use to play back in the day! We will have atleast 1-2 arcade cabinets on games that the console version are truly not worth playing on a tournament level. Games like ST and 3rd strike teams will be on arcade cabinets having Sanwa’s japanese sticks and other’s having 8 way standard switch joysticks. The arcade cabinets are donated by me. I will put a star(*) by the games that will be on the cabinet’s and the rest will be on console.

There is a entry fee that is separate from the entry fee to each tournament. FRXIII entry fee is “$30”. (This fee is to pay for the VENUE/Event BADGES) Like I always say I need FINAL ROUND to pay for itself.

OFFICIAL SIGN UP’S FOR BADGES START AT 9:30AM ON MARCH 12, 2010!

Rules
All CAPCOM and SNK games are Double Elim.–Best 2 out of 3
You can ask for Blind Pick!

CONDUCT
Players must conduct themselves in a reasonable manner. Permanent ejection of a player from the tournament is at the staff’s discretion. Any sign of cheating will also result in forfeit of the game. Any intentional forfeiting or conspiring to manipulate the brackets will result in ejection and possible suspension from future tournaments.

On all console tournament games:

This is a (B.Y.O.C. = Bring Your Own Controller/converter or Joystick) tournament for all of the console games being played at FINAL ROUND. You are responsible for your equipment and we will not supply anyone with a controller or converter at this tournament for any console tournament. I won’t supply anymore converter’s for finalround. I’m tired of getting my stuff stolen by some people that don’t have any home trainning.

If you hit the start button or a malfunction in your equipment happens during a
match that makes the game pauses or resets during a tournament match get the head judge in charge of running that tournament to decide what will happen next for that match. Replays are automatic if it’s at the beginning of the match and you have played 5-10 seconds in the game with no one having an advantage in the match. It’s not my problem if “YOUR STICK” malfunction’s during a tournament. I WILL BE THE FINAL SAY ON ANY PROBLEMS THAT MY TOURNAMENT JUDGES CAN’T RESOLVE!

I want to keep FinalRound as close to arcade perfect as I can, but this isn’t the way that some 3d players view button shouldering gameplay. So I came up with this solution:

“Button shouldering” will NOT be allowed at FR in the following games:

***All capcom 2d fighters, Tekken6 BR, and all snk fighters ***

(THAT MEANS IF YOU RESET YOUR BUTTONS YOU MUST PUT THE DEFAULT MULTI-BUTTONS ON BLANK or no function!!!) So that mean you won’t have your 3xkick button, or 3xpunch button. This applies to snk games also. Any default presets that are NOT like the arcade set up are not allowed. If you don’t have a 3x punch or kick button in the arcade then you won’t use it at FR! We are trying to make it as close to arcade type tournament as possible and NO button mapping the traditional way to play capcom and snk games IMO. I don’t care where you put them on your controler/joystick but you should only have the following buttons input’s for the following games:

Capcom games that are on consoles will have only ***6 button inputs***allowed on your controller/joystick and they are:

1. Jab punch=light punch
2. Strong punch=medium punch
3. Fierce punch=hard punch
4. Short kick=light kick
5. forward kick=medium kick
6. roundhouse kick=hard punch

This goes for the following games:
Street Fighter Four
Street Fighter III 3rd strike
Street Fighter 2 Super turbo

SNK-Playmore games on console inputs that are allowed:

1. Light punch
2. Heavy punch
3. Light kick
4. Heavy kick

This goes for the following games:

MOTW If we don’t play on arcade equipment
KOF12

“Button Shouldering/mapping” "Will" be allowed for SC4.

  • At the beginning of a set, each player may strike 2 stages from the available 11. Of these, only 1 can be from the 4 Neutrals listed above. You may however choose to strike 2 counterpick stages.

  • 1st match, characters are chosen with double blind picks. After that, advanced slob picks- Loser of 1st match pick stages, the winner of the 1st match picks character, then loser of 1st match picks character. Continue this as necessary until the set reaches completion. Standard sets are best of 3, finals or semi-fianls are left to the discretion of the tournament host, although best of 5 is recommended for time constraints.

  • All forms of stalling are banned. Stalling- The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. This includes MK infinite cape, excessive edge stalling, or any form of stalling under the stage (DK spin, sonic charge B, snake infinite down B teching, etc).

  • Any suicide KOs on the final stock resulting in sudden death will result in a loss for the user of this tactic. If it would be a suicide KO and the match screen shows a decisive winner, go with that instead. A Bowsercide final KO results in a win for the Bowser player.

  • If the timer runs out, the victor is determined first by stock and then by percentage. In the event of a sudden death, both players are to suicide IMMEDIATELY. No fighting with bombs @ 300. At the results screen, regardless of what the screen says, the player with the higher DAMAGE TAKEN is the loser. No exceptions. In the result of a tie, the match will be discarded and played over, same characters and stage. For teams, if this should ever happen, add the damage taken instead for both teams.

  • Any action that can prevent the game from continuing (i.e., freezing, disappearing characters, game reset, etc.) will result in a forfeit of that match for the player that initiated the action. You are responsible for knowing your own character, and must be wary about accidentally triggering one of these effects.

All other levels open for counter picks.

If you are playing in multiple games you need to notify a organizer when you are about to play in another game, so they can skip your match on the brackets and come back to you after you completed the other tournament match.

Also once the tournament starts you are responsible for knowing when your next match will come up. If you have to go for a food or bathroom break, then “PLEASE” notify the judge at your station or “me” that you will be gone for a few minutes. The judge should beable to tell you when your next game will be and how long you have before your next match up. Just act like you have been to a tournament before people and everything will run smoothly.

Anyone that get’s out of line inside or outside of the hotel will force me to call the police on you. Keep that “B.S.” online or at home. I don’t care where you keep it just don’t bring that drama to FINAL ROUND. Act like you have some home training people. I don’t want to break up any more arguements over dumb stuff!

I have 60 rooms reserved for people/groups that are attending FRXIII. We need these rooms sold for that weekend since the hotel was nice enough to hold those rooms at a reduced rate for everyone attending FRXIII. So if you are reserving a ROOM at the hotel for FINAL ROUND, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THE HOTEL STAFF YOU ARE WITH THE FINAL ROUND GROUP . When you call up the hotel, don’t just say you want to reserve a room, say you want to reserve a room for FINAL ROUND.

The 2 queen size beds in 1 room are $79.00 when you tell them your with the Finalround group. Anyone is willing to bring a tv+system+games I WILL PAY for your badge! You can never have too many tv’s+systems imo at a console tournament! Make sure they aren’t TV’s with lag. You maybe use to playing on them, but if they have lag I can’t use them due to everyone will complain playing on them! We will test them out before we give you the badge.

Anyone that plans on entering the SSBM and SSBB “regular” tournament needs to make sure they sign up no later than Friday morning. I’m trying to start SSBM tournament at 1pm sharpe on Friday march 12, 2009 if everyone is sign up on thursday night! That’s why I need the Melee and regular brawl players to sign up on thursday night or friday morning.

There will be an EARLY BIRD ONLINE PREGISTER DISCOUNT for those that want to pay early for a discounted entry fee. This offer will run for 3 months. $25 Venue fee if you pay for the early bird pre-register/prepay online. This will also help us make the brackets early and post the brackets online the week before the event. After 3 months the early bird special will end, but you will still beable to pre-register/prepay online. You will also beable to walk up to the door and pay the day of the event, but I would advise everyone to pre-pay online to aviod the pre-reg line at Final Round. You will have your name on your badge if you prepay online. There are “NO REFUNDS” on the online prepay, so make sure you will be attending Final Round before you prepay.

Final Round is 8 months away and it will be here before you know it people! Let the hype and games begin!

Will probably do 3s team as well.

Also: STHD should be out by then…STHD tourny maybe?


#9

GS Larry – keep the scene alive.

We might have to jack your Brawl ruleset for SBIII, glad you’ve got it all set – the Smash community has not been very helpful to us so far.

Plans TBA but I can be pretty sure OH will be back! Thanks for running this godlikely every single year.

I can’t speak for GG, but I don’t see the point of upping 3s to $20, esp w/ a $30 FR entry (which I don’t mind at all). Gas will be extra expensive this year too. I voted to keep those at $10.


#10

I was a little turned off by the $30 price just now, but now that I think about it… it’s 10 months away and I have plenty of time to save up. This may have been discussed before, but a 3 day event would also mean spending more for hotel nights also. :xeye:

Well I’ll be there regardless. Hyyyyype!

Damn Larry, it’s that serious? **ALREADY!?!?!?! **last years one wasnt even that long ago :looney:

Thought you were getting a venue change this year? did you get the tv issue resolved this time around?

also thanks for adding Arcana again to your major. Hoping AH2 is out on console by then (we have been running tourneys on Sp00ky’s consolized AH2 arcade cabinet, but its pf course a fucking hassle to take that setup with you everywhere. :sweat:

Any chance Arcana can have a more optimum timesslot this year? last year, originally it was on saturday (but moved to sunday), casuign a lot of players (who were there on premises, mostly GG players) to drop all together. but a lot of it was probably attributed to cvs2 running way over schedule on sunday (good shit justin/steveh :bluu:)

If not, it’s cool! Just hope we dont end AH by the time the venue is closing like last time. :lol:


#13

Final Round is the best god damn tournament of the year.

Can’t fucking wait. I didn’t even have to ask to have MB be considered. You are amazing Larry.

Tahir Alaka "TarkanX"
Minneapolis, MN
Games: 3S, 98UM, A2, A3, CvS2, RBS, SC4, SF4, SSBB, ST, VS, WHP

I don’t see RB2 on there, even though you have it on the rules (always thought 2 was better than Special), and it looks like NGBC isn’t there anymore (although its good to see that SNK games are getting the support they deserve). I had a good time at FRXI, and I hope to do much better this year… vying for at least 1st place in one game. ShinBlanka, our ST match was great, went to the last round in the last game… I want to meet you in the first round in ST if possible, I’m still thinking about that match and how I could’ve won., and it’s always great to challenge old schoolers.

On another note, didn’t you say that SS2 was going to be at the next FR?


#15
