After much thought over the past couple months. I have decided to run the qualifier thursday night(day before evo officially starts). I have also decided to cap the entrants for the qualifier to 5 people, per state. I know some people may not get in to vegas til really late, but unfortunately, we don’t have much choice. Especially considering that the main sf4 tourney is on friday. And with people running brackets or playing their pools/semi’s, it’s gonna be too much of a chore to hunt people down.
I havent decided the time for the tourney yet, but will keep everyone posted. But look for a 7pm rough estimate. It will be held in cigarbob’s hotel room, on a custom cabinet with japanese parts, of course you are more than welcome to use your own stick/pad.
The tourney will be single elimination. I havent decided if i should do 2of3 or 3of5 rounds yet. feedback is welcomed. we will play the brackets until top5 is determined. if there are duplicate characters in top 5, i.e. if there is a sagat in2nd and 3rd place, 3rd place sagat will not be on the team and the 6th place player is on. unless hes a dupe character as well. I know It sounds bullshit, but no matter how we look at it, there is no true way to get the best top 5 possible, and people will inevitably get screwed, unless I spend an insane amount of time. And let’s be honest, it is not worth the crazy amount of time, stress, energy spent for a “JUST FOR FUN” exhibition. So no, I will not do 5 tourneys to determine.
I will leave it up to fubarduck to determine the 5 best in texas
who from new mexico has a good understanding of their local scene and can assemble their top 5?
