This will be the first of our BIWEEKLY tournaments at a new card shop in Greensboro, NC - Lucky’s Card Shop. I’m friends with Lucky and he’s been nice enough to give us a venue for the tournaments, EVERY OTHER WEEK! It’s all tables, chairs, and space. EVERYONE REQUEST OFF!!!
Dates for the tournaments are as follows (all Saturdays):
I would like to continue with at least one into August before EVO, but I gotta see what’s up with school.
To further the competition and shit talk, we’ll also have a Ranking Battle System in effect for all games. Players will accumulate points based on placing and the person with the most points at the end of the biweeklies is declared the winner. Other than possible seeding and tallying points, this won’t affect the normal tournament format. This may not amount to anything more than honor and being able to claim the title, but we’ll see.
Points are as follows:
1st: 10 points
2nd: 7 points
3rd: 5 points
4th: 3 points
5th: 1 point

Lucky’s brother is a Tekken head (was at FRX), and he knows a good amount of people around here who play, so T5 will hopefully be worth it. If someone is willing to donate a PS3 with DR, then we’ll run DR instead of 5, and your entry fee will be waived. If there is enough interest for Alpha 3 then we can run that too.
Time isn’t really much of an issue as long as we finish up sometime hopefully before 10. Lucky does have two nice LCDs, but of course we can’t use those, so this is going to be a combined effort again. He is going to help with a few TVs, and the rest (and PS2s) will be provided by us. We should be fine with 7 or so which will probably come from us around here, but we may need 1 or 2 more if people are willing. You can pull right up to the place, so it’s not much of a haul if someone could help. We’ll probably need one or two systems as well (I’m thinking 1 extra DC and 1-2 PS2s). If someone brings a needed TV or system of course their entry is free. Anyone willing to help run brackets would be appreciated. :lovin:
Any questions post-up! YOU WA SHOCK~! :tup:
