=======What’s going down?=======
Hey everyone, Zaelar and myself here in NJ think the tournament scene is a little lackluster so we got together with a local console cafe to get some monthly tournament / ranbats / whatever going. Again, it’s console, so all you arcade go-ers suck it up and get over here! Pardon the fucking novel of a first post.
=======When’s it going down?=======
The day before mother’s day, SATURDAY, MAY 13th. I realize this is short, two weeks notice, but we just recently got things finalized to get it going.
Signs up will begin at 4 pm, and the tournaments will start promptly at 5 pm. Sign ups for CvS2 will start EARLIER, say between 3-4, and the tournament itself will likely start at 4. If there’s not enough folks we might wait a little longer. If you’re late, call the number at the end of this post to let us know!
=======What the fuck is down?=======
The tournaments being held are for GUILTY GEAR SLASH, THIRD STRIKE, and CVS2. NJ needs a GGS scene again, so we’ll do our best to revive it / provide it. And too many random fools play 3S /CvS2 so we got that too.
It’s $5 entry per tournament and a one time $5 house fee. Nice and simple. So if you enter GGXXS and 3S, you pay $5 for GGXXS, $5 for 3S, and $5 for the house.
=======How is it going down?=======
All right, here are the rules we’ve got going regarding round robins, double elimination, and the like.
3-4: Round robin, winner take all
5-9: Round robin, second gets 10, winner gets rest
[*]10+: Double elimination, 70/20/10, second/third getting bumped up to 10 at the expense of first place if they would be less.
Round Robin(RR) rules:
Everyone plays against everyone in a 2/3.
RR rank is determined by number of matches won. Ties are determined by number of games won. If further tiebreaking is needed, matches are extended to 3/5 for those involved.
In 5-6, the first two continue their match to a 3/5 to determine a winner.
In 7-9, the top 4 seed a double elimination bracket to determine the top two. All matches are reset, and are now 3/5.
Double Elimination(DE) rules:
Matches are 2/3, exept for winners finals, losers finals, and grand finals which are 3/5.
To avoid confusion, to make sure your controlls are correct soft reset (select+start+L1+R1+L2+R2 covers most games) and go into options. Don’t go into a game and pause to change your controlls.
Pausing during a game is basically a forfieture of the game(not round). If there is a clear advantage to one side or both players want to resume from the pause, a judge may decide a different outcome. If both players can agree on the same way to continue the game, it will probably be allowed.
Using turbo or macro functions on a controller is not allowed. You may set up your controller any way that a game allows. Controllers may be inspected by a judge.
Disqualification doesn’t mean you get your entry fee back.
Should something not covered by the rules come up, it is up to the judges to determine the outcome.
Programable controllers / sticks are not allowed.
I’m sure you all know the deal with NO KLIFF / JUSTICE / GILL / GOLD / EX whatever characters.
Winner stays with character, losers may change.
Winner may change Super art in 3S.
=======Where’s it going down?=======
7 Banta Place
Hackensack NJ 07601
phone # 201 488 7775
It’s our first tournament, so we’ll see how it goes. Just get your asses here on time!
We’ll also be rotating the games out each month, once we get a feel for how many folks will start coming. Hell, they might become bi-montly, but that’s all set for the future.
Lastly, we might do a ranbat-esque point system depending on the number of people that show. More on that at the tournament.
Directions to the place from NY will be up shortly (from one of the owner’s himself). Further corrections may also be made, so check this post for that.
Any other questions / comments / complaints, let me know.
