The plan is to have one row of TVs for casuals the WHOLE TIME, probably about 5. Then, on the other side of the room run the tournaments, with about 6 TVs. CVS2 will use ALL the tournament TVs possible, then KOFXI and HNK will cycle in as CVS2 ends. Same for all the other games. These will be all the official tournaments - anything else someone wants to run, do it on the casual side. If you are in a casual tournament and called for an official one, you must come to the official tournament or risk DQ.
This is a tentative schedule, but I think things will run a lot more smooth. I would do one tournament at a time, but with the entries it is probably not the most efficient thing to do. If everything works out, 3rd Strike (and all the other games) have a good chance of starting before their scheduled time. Also, the casual side will be open for whatever games people want, the whole time. So, if you’re just there for 3rd for example, you won’t have to wait all day to play.
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
Point totals from R1 and R2 will be posted in the results thread.
Tekken has been [EDIT: RE-ADDED]. It will be DR as long as Demorris brings the PS3. [EDIT: Any tournaments not on the official schedule may be run in the casual area if there is enough interest (ST, Alpha 3, VF5, SC3), and we’ll get you some brackets. Try not to use more than one TV however, to not interfere with the people who want to play other casuals before their tournaments.]
I think we were good on TVs last time [EDIT: We may need a few], so I’ll post up near the tournament if we’ll need some. We will probably need some systems and games though [EDIT: Modded PS2s and DCs please]. Constructive criticism and suggestions are welcomed.
