Alright guys, I’m going to begin making it more of a habit check in on this thread more often, and posting more information about what exactly the hell is going on. Also, I’ll take KatariDragon’s idea and post in the Southwest thread. If you if have suggestions for things that we should do or things that we should change, feel free to post in the thread to let me know. This includes how we should do ranbats (No, we aren’t going to host HDR tourneys ;D). On to ranbats!
So we had our first round of ranbats last thursday and we had an okay turnout - though some people need to get off their ass and make it to the venue =D
Since we are pretty much diving head-first into the whole hosting tournaments and doing ranbats thing, the best thing to do is mimic what other regions are doing. I like Arcade UFO, so I am suggesting we use their point system for ranbats. I’ll type out the rules we are most likely going to use for this “season” of ranbats to be held NEXT Thursday, 8-26.
From here on out, we will be using a setup provided by Rakuen – the same guy doing the brackets. It will be on 360 and has absolutely zero lag. Everything we do will be held at the Party Zone Clubhouse on Faudree road. I will post the actual address later.
The format may change. This is just a starting point and a suggestion. If it changes it will be posted in this thread.
Super Street Fighter 4
Single elimination - Why? To keep time-commitment low for everyone.
Top 4 will be in some kind of double elimination to have accurate standings. - Why top 4? not enough people to do top 8
Xbox 360 - If you use a pad, bring one. There will be 2 arcade sticks.
ITS FREE! SO SHOW UP AND SHOW YOUR SKILLS
Each match is a 2/3 gameset with the rounds also set at 2/3
Character switch OK but player cannot change mid 2/3 game set until they lose 1 game - This is very important
- Points are awarded as follows: 1st (10 points), 2nd (7 points), 3rd (5 Points), 4th (3 Points), 5th (2 Points), 6th (1 Point)
Schedule: (Every other Thursday)
November 4th - End season - Hope I didn’t put on one some kind of holiday.
As we are poor and not sponsored (lol), the prize is bragging rights!
As stated before, all this could change tomorrow. Also I suggest (to all of us organizers) that we restart the ranbats with the date above.
Sorry for super-long post. Tell everyone you know that the ranbat season is starting and we need to spread word to the midland players (if there are any.)
