SBO Style?
SBO style is a ruleset that is used for particular Japanese FGC tournaments. For this tournament, it will go as follows:
SBO style is 2vs2 teams, so find a teammate
Player 1 of each team plays each other in a set
Then player 2 of each team plays each other in a set
If both players of the same team win their match, then they advance. If one player from each team wins their game, then the winners of both games will play each other in a set as a tiebreaker.
This SBO style tournaments will be double elimination
If a game does not have at least 6 teams of people, it will convert back to a regular singles bracket

Location & Time:

Venue opens: 11AM

Start Times (Doors open at 11am):
SBO Brawl doubles: 12pm noon
SBO Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3: 2pm
SBO AEv2012 & 2-stock Brawl Singles: 4pm

Registration for every game will end 15 minutes before Brawl doubles, and 30 minutes before all other events. Things will actually start on time (or as close to humanly possible on time as a videogame tournament can be). If you do not think you will get here before registration ends for a game, have someone sign you up, or let me know well before the time limit so I can put you in myself.

Being 5 Dollar Footdives, you can imagine that everything is $5 each:

Door Fee: $5

If there are 16 or more entrants (teams), payout percentages are as follows:

100% of the pot will go back out to the players. Absolutely no pot rape of any kind. You pay the door fee once, no matter how many games you enter. Spectating is free, but friendlies/casuals will always have to be stopped immediately for tourney matches when necessary

If you would like to play on the PCs within the computer portion of NLL, you will still have to pay for hours.

Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Version 2012:
Default settings. 2 out of 3 games. At either player’s request, matches will be played on the training stage. This request must be made before the match starts. Loser may change character/ultra. Winner may change ultra after the loser changes characters, but before he selects his ultra.


Setups are definitely going to be necessary. I am able to provide a full setup for XBOX 360. If you have a setup, or at least part of a setup, please bring it. Next Level Lan has some CRT tvs that aren’t being used, so bring everything you can. I will have a disc of every game aside from the single consoles as well. This being Florida, I can imagine the 360 setups are much easier to produce.

For those who do bring a full setup for any game (tv/monitor and system), you will get free door fee for the first 4 full setups (first 2 wii and first 2 xbox)

Misc Notes:
I will be putting the brackets on paper for every game. If someone could assist me with running a bracket for a game I may either not play, or may be busy with something else, it would be greatly appreciated.

Any questions/comments/concerns feel free to post in here or AIM me at GameDragonX. If you get lost you can give me a call at 863-934-2355. you can also hit me up on Facebook under Keith Kelly
