#1

Let’s have fun and fire up the competition!

Location:
Gameware
3151 College Dr, Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70808
(225) 927-9411

Entry:
$5 (cash only) per tourney (built in $1 venue fee)

When:
Friday, September 16, 2011
6:00 PM - Registration Opens
7:30 PM - Tournaments Begin

Tournaments (Singles):
Marvel vs Capcom 3 (360)
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (360)
Street Fighter 3: Third Strike Online (360)

Rules:
-Winnings are split 60/30/10 (built in $1 venue fee)
-Double Elimination Bracket, seeded by location.
-ALL matches between players are a set of three games, with the exception of Grand Finals (3 out of 5)

-B.Y.O.C. (No controllers will be provided by the tournament organizers or Gameware)
-Wireless controllers are prohibited. This is due to syncing up with other systems and potentially pausing the players’ match next to you. This also makes switching controllers much faster. If you have a wireless controller, the battery pack needs to be removed and a wire needs to be used.

-Be punctual. Do not be late for your matches. I will be calling out names, so listen up! If you’re leaving or stepping out for a bit, let me know. Makes things much easier, but don’t disappear for undue lengthy amounts of time. I don’t want to have to DQ anyone, but I reserve that right in order to keep the tournament flowing as smoothly as possible.

-Pausing intentionally during a match is grounds for a disqualification/loss of that* GAME*.

In-game specific rules:
-Winner must keep the same team/assist types (MvC3)
-Winner must keep same character, may change ultra (SSF4:AE/3sO)
-Blanka Alt. Costume 3 is banned. (SSF4:AE)

Requests from the TOs:
If you have a setup that can be used for the tournament, PLEASE let me know. Shoot me a PM, email, or IM.
A setup consists of a display (CRT or lag free monitor–ASUS monitors are winners here) and a console (360 please). I’m going to try to have things labeled with blue artist tape around cords to keep track of things.

This info is subject to change! Check back for potential changes!

#3

birth certificate typos omg


#4

Quick update: All matches are 2/3. Grand finals is 3/5 for all games. Heads up!


#5

No fucking MK? No thank you.


#6

I guess that means you won’t be there if my detective skills stand strong :slight_smile:


#7

Looks like I’m gonna have to hope I can still do everything on a 360 pad. The PS3 -> 360 conversion isn’t easy to get used to, lol.


#8

If you have the resources, I know there are ps pad -> 360 converters and that might help out a lot.


#9

Nah, I’d like to be there if I’m in town; I’m just not gonna make it a point to drive from Lafayette. Would I at least be able to bring a casual set-up for MK9?


#10

Definitely if we can find some room. Going to try to have another table set up for some casual matches.


#11

That Gameware seems awfully small. How many people come on average?


#12

Well, we had 23 and 26 entrants for the two main tournaments (MvC3 and SSF4: AE) last month. That might give you a rough idea.


#13

I’m still going to go to the tourney regardless. It’s just that the only 360 experience I have is the last MvC3 tourney I went to (which was earlier this year). Well, I’m gonna have to hope I do as well as I did then. I’m going to enter AE as well.


#14

i hope this happens
