What’s up good people! Jtrgmr and I have been talking for awhile on plans to make this happen! A California regional battle, Norcal vs. Socal! 5 of the best players from each part of the state to duke it out at Socal Regional’s, November 5-7.
We’re asking for $25 from each player for their chance to double up their money! That is only a minimum, so if someone on the team wants to throw more on the line, then we’ll try to get someone on the opposing team to match it…
We will try to hold this on Saturday after we get through pools.
#5: Honor Roll
The Battle will consist of 2 out of 3 games for each match, and the first team with Two Team Victories will win all the marbles!
The format will be similar to the ACHO style. For anyone not familiar with the style, here’s how it will go…
Everyone is going to play at least 1 match in this battle. Player #1 from team NC will fight player #1 from team SC, then player #2 from NC will fight #2 from SC, then #3 vs. #3 and so forth. The outcomes will be either a team had 3 wins, 4 wins, or swept the opposing team. This is a matter of elimination, so if a team was NOT swept, the surviving players from each team will fight again in their respective orders until a whole team is completely eliminated, therefore leading the other team into a Team Victory.
The players from NorCal will be labeled as A B C D E here
While the players from SoCal will be labeled as 1 2 3 4 5 for this example
First set: Team NC has A and B win, while SC has 3, 4, and 5 win
so the next matches are…
A vs. 3 (norcal wins)
B vs. 4 (socal wins)
A vs. 5 (norcal wins)
and the last match that will determine the team victory will be player A vs. player 4 then we start over with a 2nd set…
Team orders for the players will be double-blinded, written on a piece of paper, along with their chosen characters. Players may NOT choose different characters from what they have written down for their first match, however they ARE allowed to change characters if they lose a game. Teams may choose to change their orders/characters between sets…
So there you have it! It’s time to start training so we can see who will have the bragging rights!
Oh, and yes…and there’s something else on the line…!
Still More to Come
