Naptown: Crossroad of Fists
Welcome all to another Indianapolis Tournament! We have consistently held events for the past few years and continue our tradition once again this August. Get in some practice before Seasons Beatings!!
Running the Event, what to expect
There will be a megaphone at this event to help me keep order. Please be patient with me and the other game judges, we will have to deal with alot of people.
-Show up to GameWorks
-Check-In and Sign-Up for a game (you will receive a wristband and must wear it, or risk having to pay again/being thrown out)
-Imperative that you Sign In, I would like to have an accurate count/location of the participants
-PLEASE LABEL YOUR STUFF
-PS3 Systems will setup on the upper levels of the room
-PS2 systems and all other systems will setup on the lower level of the room
-Game Sign-Ups will be closed 20 minutes before the start of a game, No Excuses! We will need the time to create the bracket properly. I am going to be a Nazi about these times, to make the event run smoothly it has to be done this way, sorry.
-Brackets will be created on the computer with the ALJ Software 2.1
-Before each game starts up some people need to help me get the brackets in order
-Introduction of myself and the Judges just before 1:30 PM
-At 1:30 PM will immediately begin HDR and BB on the PS3.
-ALL PS3s/Event Games that are available during the specific event will be used. If your system is needed for a game, it will be commandeered for the game.
-Evo Rule Enforcement & Disqualification. It will be disappointing to enforce this if it happens. Your name will be called a few times before you are considered Disqualified for not playing during your Match, probably over a 3minute period. It has occurred and one probably will at this event, so please stay attentive to what is happening.

Venue Fees and Registration
There will be a $10 Venue Fee and a wristband will be given to identify you have paid. If you are not wearing your wristband and there is no way to prove you have paid, you must pay or leave the event. This fee will be waived if you bring either a TV, System with Tournament Game, or are helping organize the event.
Entrance Fee Waiver (Waiver list is now closed)* is on a first come first serve basis, simply post in this thread what you can bring and a list will be made. Once enough items have been accumulated we will stop giving waivers. (note some have already committed to items in the Indianapolis thread so the list technically begins after them)
Pre-registration is not required but will make things easier for us so it is appreciated. Simply post the tag that you will be playing as and which games you intend on participating in (eg. Astral: 3s, SFIV, HDR).
Games & Fee (game fees will be solely used for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd prize $$. 70/20/10)

*There will be side tournaments as well as mad casuals the entire day, organized by others though, not by me. Any disputes arising from a side tournament shall be handled by the organizer of the side tournament
**MvC2 on DC. since it will be released on the PSN only 2wks before this tourney and there has been mention of bugs/glitches, I think it would be best to keep it on DC this time.
For all intents and purposes we will be using Evo Rules (http://www.evo2k.com/playerGuide/gamerules.php) as our Rule set for our games. I will open up the following item for discussion
-Payouts at 70/20/10 for all games.
-Double Elimination, 2 out of 3, Losers/Winners Final 3 out of 5, Grand Finals 4 out of 7
***PS3, PS2, & DC will be the console for event games, currently there are 7 PS3’s committed, but please bring a PS3 if you have one!! I will consider another waiver or two depending on how many people are showing up (and it seems like ALOT at this point)
Code of Conduct
Abusive/Offensive Language, Physical Violence, or the Threat of Physical Violence will not be tolerated. They will result in your immediate ejection from the premises, and you will forfeit all fees and/or winnings that you might have accrued. This will be at the discretion of the Tournament Organizers which means that we will not be ejecting anyone for a frivolous reason. Use good judgement and you won’t have a problem.
If you agree to a “Money Match”, and you being the loser refuse to pay the winner, you will be immediately ejected from the premises, and you will forfeit all fees and/or winnings that you might have accrued. This will be a zero tolerance policy. If you can’t pay up after losing, then don’t get into a Money Match.
The Code of Conduct will be readily available for viewing at the tournament; meaning that there is no reason for anyone to say they weren’t aware of it.
I believe that is all the information you will need but if I have forgot something or you have any questions do not hesitate to ask. I look forward to seeing you all there now lets get HYPE!!!
**Myself, Game Judges, and GameWorks will not be responsible for your stuff (tvs, games, systems, controllers, miscellaneous items) if they are misplaced, lost, stolen, or broken. There is a police officer in the mall who in the past checks in on our tournament to see what is happening. You are solely responsible for you stuff brought to this event.
