For those of you who live in the Orlando area (or even those who don’t), Hard Knocks is a local LAN center. One of the managers there is a Street Fighter fanatic, and with the recent release of Street Fighter 4 he pushed for the holding of an SF4 tournament. Being a tournament player myself in the area, I’m helping him organize the rules.
A couple of important notes: if people don’t start registering soon the tournament will probably be canceled well before it’s scheduled to be held (they need to know that enough people are going to show up for them to justify giving out prizes). The incentive is that Hard Knocks is notorious for giving out really good prizes for their tournaments. They want to bring in as many people as they can handle, so call to register if you’re even remotely interested.
Street Fighter 4 (Duh.)
Hard Knocks Orlando
5707 Dot Com Ct.
Oviedo, FL 32765
Registration Fee & Details:
$15, with potential discount. See links below for details.
Update: As of now, registration for the tournament may be done either in person or over the phone. This is to accommodate for people out of town who may be interested in coming. Yes, they’ve made these decisions a bit late, but there’s still some time left.
From what I understand, the tournament is most likely being capped at 32 spots, so put your names in as soon as you can if you’re interested.
Format & Rules:
The final rule set is as follows:
- Single elimination.
- Games set to 3 rounds, 99 seconds.
- Matches are best 2 out of 3.
- All characters (including console characters) will be playable. This includes Seth and Gouken.
- Players are allowed to bring their own controllers.
