General Tournament Information
The Mayn Event Revival Tournaments
Tournament Location is at American Fun Center
642 West 14 Mile Road
Troy, MI 48083
Note that this is the same location as The Ultimate Mayn Event from 2007. The arcade now has internet access for people who need to use the computer for tournament updates. We are pushing for all Friday and Saturday to be open until Midnight for practice and tournament play. Note that this will primarily be a Tekken based tournament as it was originally intended back in 2000.
General Tournament Rules for All Tournaments
My tournaments dictate promptness and organization to the best of my ability. All I ask is for you to show up on time when your name is called. Spero Gin can testify that we have disqualified numerous people due to tardiness. I have no problem doing this again.
This will be a 100% arcade based tournament. Tekken 5DR has controller ports and the staff is working to get controller ports for Tekken 6BR. By August, AFC should have upgraded their 2nd Tekken 6 machine for 2 total BR machines. There will be 2 Tekken 5DR machines available by default. Tekken cards for both games should be available.
No ties allowed. An automatic tie declaration will automatically forfeit ALL winnings and bonuses not awarded. Please read this rule again if you didn’t get it the first time.
All games will have default settings.
Any banned techniques will be addressed and listed here. They will be prohibited during tournament play once noted. Any use of a banned technique is subject to disqualification on discretion. Official disqualification in this circumstance will forfeit your match set. So if you’re in the winner’s bracket for using a banned technique, you’re automatically sent to the loser’s bracket. The same scenario for a loser’s bracket will eliminate you from the tournament.
ANY use of foul play, deliberate damage to the facilities, or action that causes you to leave the American Fun Center (or Oakland Mall) per staff will result in immediate removal from the tournament with NO refunds or rewards whatsoever. This rule is VALID from Friday to the very end of all tournaments.
If you enter any of the tournaments listed, it will require a one-time $5 fee. ANY award or incentive that refunds the player WILL NOT involve this $5 fee. And there will be numerous chances that multiple players will be able to attend the tournament at no charge outside of the $5. So remember: Whatever you’re awarded, if you want to enter ANY of these tournaments, you must pay a minimum of $5.00.
Good Luck Everyone!
