Ranking Battle Rules:

  • DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Best 2 out of 3. FOR ALL GAMES (yes, CvS2 also.)
  • The seeding shall be done by the Ranking Battle point system (i.e. the person with the most points in the TGA RanBats will be #1 seed, etc)
  • SF3s, you can change your super art after each game. MvC2, you are allowed to change the order of your team upon start-up. CvS2, you can change the order.
  • The points system will go as followed below:

1st Place - 10 Points
2nd Place - 7 Points
3rd Place - 5 Points
4th Place - 3 Points
5th Place - 1 Point

When the Ranking Battles are finished, it will be followed by a Tournament (therefore ending the season). With this tournament you will gather up all your points and see who placed “Top 3” in the Ranking Battles for each game. (The prizes will be announced at a later date.)

About TGA’s Arcade Line-up:

  • Arcade machines: 2 “head to head” Japanese cabinets (CvS2,SF3s), all other games are in single Japanese “candy” cabinets.
  • All cabinets and games are in PERFECT condition (knock on wood :sweat:)
  • All cabs have brand new Sanwa parts
  • The room is the size of “More Arcade” (the infamous arcade in Japan where players like Daigo, BAS, Dan, Mago, etc. play all the time).

(Ranking Battle Matches will be recorded, if someone has an extra camera or two PLEASE make a post or send us a PM to this username so that we can capture these matches for everyone.)

2 things

-10 bucks entry for all the games. (No pot)
…maybe adding a $5 fee(pot) per game, just so it attracts more out of state people.
