We are at it again and this time with a new venue! We tried to keep it in Lodi but we werent able to do so. On that note we want to shout out to our new venue Gamers Etc. I will go into future plans later in the post but now for the nitty gritty.
Where: Gamers Etc.
6521 Pacific Ave
When: May 29th on Sunday, We will start taking registration for both games at 11am-1pm and start the tournaments at 1pm. We can give an extra 30min if you are running late to start at 1:30 but if you are any later YOU CANNOT BE ADDED TO THE BRACKETS, this isnt to be a d-bag but we need to respect the owners of the venue and the operation hours of the store.
What: Marvel Singles and SSFIV Singles. We will run both tournaments together and can easily work around people who are in both brackets so dont worry about that. It will be on the Xbox360 and we can provide extra sticks for you PS3 players. The tournament will be played on CrT’s and Evo monitors.
How: The tournament will be double elimination with a losers and winners bracket. Top 3 will be paid out in the usual 70/20/10 breakdown of the pot. There is a $2 venue fee which I will explain later in the post. (Most of the fee will be returned at the end of the season)!
So now that we have gotten the dirty work out of the way I want to talk about the future of our Scene! Starting next year there will be a point system for top 8 players that finish in the tournaments. The top three players with the most points will be rewarded with a prize that was accrued by the venue fee’s. I.E. Cash, T.E sticks, Apparel, Some custom arcade parts from sanwa, siemetsu or artshobbies website. First we need to get big enough to do this which is why i want to see what happens this year. So I hope we can start this next year. Another goal is to get live streams, in order for us to do this I need a good reason for Iplaywinner to come to the venue and spend some of their valuable time at our scene. We have enough room to do this.
I will be posting pictures of the venue. I know some of you have already been to their tournaments. What we have done is combined efforts to make it an even better experience. There will be special events where the actual Lincoln Center in Stockton puts on where there will be a night tournament outside with food, a car show and music etc. etc. We have a P.A system to make announcments and a projector so we can watch the finals and semi’s on a big screen! Obviously the players will still play on the T.V’ and not the projector.
Thanks again for all our supporters and lets look forward to a new beggining!
