ENTRY FEE

USC has a strict no-gambling rule, and they consider a tournament like this gambling if it involves money. As a result, we can’t charge a normal tournament entry fee that pools into a pot.

Instead, we are only charging a small $5 venue fee, and from there you can enter any of the 3 tournaments (MvC3, SSF4: AE, Melee) for free. You can choose to enter as many as you want, it’s up to you. If you are a USC student and have your USC ID, we will waive the venue fee.

If you bring a setup for Marvel 3 or SSF4:AE (games, hard drive and all current patches, unlockable characters and game files) AND WE USE YOUR SETUP, we will waive your venue fee. We already have the necessary monitors and consoles (sans game data). If you bring part of a setup (i.e. Only a hard drive or game) AND WE USE IT, we will take $2 off of your venue fee.

We will do the same for Smash Bros but on if you bring a FULL setup (non-laggy TV, console and game). If you bring part of a setup (i.e. Only a non-laggy TV, console, or game) AND WE USE IT, we will take $2 off of your venue fee.

Please PM me and let me know if you are bringing a setup, the more the merrier.

PRIZES:

USC ITP has been kind enough to sponsor prizes for this event, as we cannot have a cash pot prize. ITP will be providing $75 Visa Cards (which is basically the same as cash) for 1st place in each tournament as well as $50 visa cards for 2nd place in each tournament. Nos will also be giving a consolation prize for 3rd place in addition to free giveaways during the event.

If we could just do this tournament normally and give the winners cash from the pot we would, but USC is strict on their no gambling policy. That being said, if any of you want to do money matches, be discrete about it so that the TO’s don’t get in trouble.
