Texas Showdown 6 Planning


#1

Yes, its that time again. Last years Tx Showdown tournament was the biggest and the best Tx Showdown ever! This year, we want to top that! Last year we had over 200 people compete at the tournament, this year we expect more!

Here’s some of what we are planning:

*** The Date is now set for March 17-19, 2006!!! ***

Games:
These are pretty much set in stone to be at Showdown as well as the platform they will be played on.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 (Arcade)
Capcom vs SNK 2 (PS2)
Street Fighter III - 3rd Strike (PS2)
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo (Arcade)

The following are proposed games that may or may not be at Showdown at this time. Some are due to pending console release dates.

Tekken 5/5.1/Dark Resurrection (PS2)
Guilty Gear XX Slash (PS2)
Street Fighter Alpha 3 (Arcade)
Soul Calibur 3 (PS2)
Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo (Arcade)

The pool system used last year was a successful experiment I think. This year we plan to use pretty much the same system. 8 round robin pools for the major games, top 2 in each pool qualifies for the 16 man semi-final brackets. Records for everybody will only be used in seeding for the bracket. All qualifiers will start fresh, meaning they have all losses removed.

Additional prizes will be given out, like last year we will have Qualifier dog tags for the top 16, shirts, posters, etc. We’re working on some new prizes to give out as well.

Unfortunately, due to rising costs to running a growing tournament, registration fees will have to be raised. Those who have been to previous Showdown tournaments should realize how much larger the event got last year and how much the cost must have increased. So with that explanation, the bad news is that registration will be raised to $20 at Texas Showdown 6.

People who can provide a TV(at least 20") or a PS2(preferably import) + games will have their registration fee waived. We will post up later exactly how many we need.

A couple of new wrinkles we plan to add are some additional games. This year we’re planning on bringing in a DDR machine and host a Beatmania tournament. Of course if we team up with MLG again(which I hope we do), then you can expect to see Halo 2 and Super Smash Bros Melee in action as well.

Check back to the first post for updated news about the tournament. A date and venue will be posted here in the coming months.

Already? Man Ts5 was THE SHIT. I’ve never had so much fun in my life. Sharing a room with my homies was just a small part of why Ts5 kicked so much ass.

#6

#7

What if Guilty Gear Slash isn’t scheduled to come out till maybe a bit later than that? Can #Reload take it’s place, or are you going to just totally eliminate Guilty Gear this year if that happens?
