Here is the new thread for PNWMajors. This first post will contain all the info relevant to Northwest Majors for quick reference. Hope it helps.
Quick Reminder. Try to keep posts in this thread related to tournament planning. It needs to stay organized so we don’t have to look through unrelated posts to find actual information. Everyone is welcome to contribute and participate but no negativity. Discussion is fine, but telling people their ideas are stupid or a waste of time doesn’t help. Stay Positive. :tup:
All the Reference Information is below.
Official Title- Pacific Northwest Majors. Call it whatever you want, but that is the official name when dealing with businesses and other organizations, like the UW. It is being held by the “Fighting Game Community at the University of Washington.”
Room Layout - If you want to get an idea of what the tournament is going to look like, check here. We can take out the tables in the center if we need more room. This is the actual room setup sheet from where I work, so the dimensions are pretty accurate.
Date - Saturday, June 28th, 12:00-10:00 or until finish
Late Registration starts at 12:00 PM
First Tournaments start at 1:00.
Marvel Vs. Capcom II
Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Guilty Gear: Accent Core
Virtua Fighter 5
Capcom Vs. SNK II
Cost of Entry-
10$ per game.
5$ late registration fee at the door.
Max Attendance- 150-175 people. The Walker Ames Room can hold 200 people standing, but we will have a lot of equipment inside, so we can’t hold that many all at once. The amount of games people sign up to play will determine how long the event will go and how many people will be in the room at a specific time, so we may have to start capping certain games if we get a lot of people registered. I realize it is lot more complicated then that, but we can figure that out in a bit.
The website has updates, driving directions, maps (coming soon) rules, games lists, a schedule (coming soon), and preregistration, where you can get a spot early, save 5$ by not registering the day of, and see who else has signed up to compete. Preregistering will also help us estimate the size of the attendance, and help us to plan more ahead of time making for a better tournament.
