Double Elimination

Past Ranbat Seasons have been Single Elimination until Top 8 followed by Double Elimination for the Top 8. We are going to do away with that format this season, as I think we can finish Double Elimination in a reasonable timespan now.

Live Stream

All events will have select matches streamed live on Arcade UFO’s Twitch TV channel, and HD Footage will be made available at a later date on our YouTube Channel.

Equipment

UFO’s console setups run on head-to-head arcade cabinets. Joysticks are Sanwa JLF-TP-8Y and buttons are Sanwa OSBF-30. Equipment is maintained regularly, but for any of the console setups (all games besides SSF4:AE 2012) you may optionally bring and use your own PS3-compatible pad or joystick if you are more comfortable with that.
