The Rules
These rule sets will be officially reconized by the staff of the Fort Worth Classic as the official rules for this tournament. Please read all of the information carefully.

Gemeral Rules

  1. Tournament formats will be determined at the tournament by the number of registrations for a particular game. Round Robin format will be used when there are less than 7 players in a tournament. Double Elimination format for 8-16 players, and finally the single elimination format for 20 or more.

  2. Prizes for each game will be distributed immediately following the tournament at hand.

  3. A match for all tournaments are best 2 out of 3 games(unless specified).

  4. I am all for casuals, but you must register BEFORE you play.

  5. Any grievous misconduct will result in you being removed from the premises without a refund and any prize money that is won surrendered. This includes, but not limited to, drinking, smoking(in building), gambling on matches(unless it is an officially sanctioned Money Match and only then it will be between the participants involved), and disrespecting and arguing with staff(for both The Classic and the venue).

  6. Hardware macros are strictly prohibited. You may only use the macros that are available in the in-screen configuration menu. 3x punch and 3x Kick options or any other similar options are not allowed.

  7. An accidental pause of the game may result in forfeiture of round at the judge?s digression.

  8. You must bring your own controller for any console that the game is played on. Converters may or may not be offered for any console that requires them(ie: PS2 to DC and PS2 to PS3. If you wish to play pad, you MUST use the console default, or an officially licensed controller(usb cables must be used on PS3 controllers). Even though Wii will be used for Smash, You MUST use Gamecube controllers.

  9. Wireless controllers are strictly forbidden. If you bring one, it will be seized by the tournament director and a corded controller will be provided in its place. Return of the controller will happen if you return the controller that was provided. Wavebirds are not exempt from this rule.

  10. There is zero tolerance for theft. If caught stealing, a police report will be filed with the proper authorities, and will be prosecuted to the maximum extent of the law.

  11. Double Blind selection may be called by the judge for any reason and any game may be replayed at the tournament director?s digression, even if it was the last game in a match.

  12. Equipment failures are subject to a three person panel that will consist of the Tournament Director, the head judge, and one person deemed an expert in the game at hand, using EVO standards as a guideline. If the equipment failure was reported by a player, and the panel ruled against him, the match is forfeited. Judges can report equipment failures on behalf of the player. If the panel rules for the player, the equipment is ordered to be replaced with a padded controller and the match is ordered to be replayed with the same characters and settings. Regardless of what the panel rules, if the judge convenes the panel for the player, the match is ordered to be replayed with the same characters and settings.

  13. Rules violations must be reported the instant the violation is made(within reasonable standards). The Classic will use the yellow card system when issuing rule violation penalties(Yellow card will forfeit the match and a red card will disqualify you). If a player falsely(or ignorantly) reports a rule violation, then they will be issued a yellow card. You will have a clean slate for each tournament.

omggggggggggggggggggggz not this again

Fuck off Scotty and go back to your Team Unblockable Thread. It misses its idiot.

The point is STAY OUT OF MY THREADS!!!

my god you fail so hard im not apart of team unblockable does my avatar even say unblockable on it? your a idiot

i dont think scotty has ever posted in the unblockable thread.

also better game lineup this time.

and i believe there is a group that hosts games at AFEST already… ill get in touch with them and we can collab on a tourney with them.

i will help you if you let me man but if you dont ill run it on my own.

as seen at recent akon alot of people play kof11 but not much other KOF games… maybe garou and thats it.

ggxx was most popular aside from SSBB and general capcom games.

You are more than welcome to help man. I’m always in need of judges, especially this time around. Also get in touch with those friends of yours. Collabing is a good idea.

well its not really collabing… see if they are incharge of the room this year… then its all up to them and this tourney could NOT happen. there will be tourneys but they try to run them too but its on the games of their choice.

I talked to the guy who is in charge of the room this year before I posted the thread(I can do my homework), and he is receptive to the idea.

-_- sigh

leave the kid, be. he’s enough of a joke. can’t hurt to try.

stubborn kid. remember his sensei is the great Dark Geese. lawl.

it’s sad that he makes it like a “us vs. them” scenario.
it’s pretty hard to like a douchebag. * looks around*

What’s the point of even posting here if you are just going to flame the kid???

Sanji, don’t bring Team Unblockable’s name into this when you don’t know a damn thing about us. I don’t know you, I’ve never judged you before, but don’t comment on things you don’t know about.

You are right, I don’t know you or who Team Unblockable is, but on the other hand, no one made a half assed effort to get to know me either.

When Dj_Matrix had his ranbats in the afternoon, I repeatedly asked for a ride to get over there. Who stepped up to the plate so that the new guy can get to know you even though I can’t play worth of shit? No one.

And if Scotty and Thai can actually can give five minutes of their time to actually get to know me, they will find out that I’m actually a stand up guy who can actually listen to good advice.

i already did. you chose to listen advice from someone else. we can’t help the fact that you chose to listen and sway your judgment to someone else who really has no voice here in DFW.

as much as i like the fact that you trying to promote these games, it’s going on deaf ears.

Sanji once again let me help arrange you with this…I just got some time on my hands now… ( I’m at the end of Grad School and planning for MWC)

So give me a call and I’ll direct you on it… You’ll probably wanna take out Fatal Fury 3 as RBS and RB2 are much improved versions.

Jorge- Dont even bother talking to Thai…Thai= Loser that plays Pokemon and Gundam Rise of the robots all day and fucks school kids :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:…we all know that so don’t pay the old fart any mind…

Sanji also man they are all copying an avatar of someone…they are not part of Team UB…

Also I can just let you use MIRA for the tournaments instead of KOF 2006 as KOF MIRA is a MUCH, MUCH better game than KOF2006.

Oh yeah and all those SNK games are mine FREE…I’m getting my entry fee back winning all that shit! :rofl: :rofl:

Only way I wont be able to make this is if I gotta help Spooky run our own Major around that time

Also Sanji hey man its getting almost time for OSC 2k8 yet again!!! (You know you coming! Thing with MWC is I’m staying with someone that he says he can’t make anymore room for anyone else to stay with him… :sad:)

…i’m sad that you actually care that I play Gundam games. and no, I don’t. Try Puzzle Quest, it’s a great game. Sad to say, you can’t really push my buttons on being a great teacher. can’t really say the same about yourself, kiddo.

And Chess, I’ve been playing lots of that. oh wait, there aren’t any exploitable dumb glitches in Chess for you to take advantage of some noob, so sorry you automatically suck on that game. :confused:

poor bipolar boy. take some meds, kiddo.

where the fuck is battle fantasia?! i said that for logan

You gonna bring the PS3/XBOX360? :rofl: :wgrin:

You live in way out far west ft worth if i remember correctly. Most everybody who plays live in the midcities or here in Dallas. Only Eddy lives in Fort Worth and thats the south side. You know how long it would have taken to pick you up from the outskirts of ft worth to take you to north east dallas then take you back. Whos gonna drive that far just to play for like 4 or 5 hours then drive you back and then drive back home.3 hours round trip at least for some of the regulars and on a work or school night because it was on thursday night.

If you wanted to play with us , you could get your own ride to take you or take a bus.

Just saying. You blame us for what? Nothing. Get your head out of your ass already.

Had to vent that out cause you and dark geese take every opportunity to hate on Dallas. Its getting old.

And yes I can understand some peeps coming in and taking a dump on your thread but its funny(sometimes). LOL. Dont take it personal.

oh man Cpu and Cpu 2 need to watch out !!

takes a shit in thread

But yet still the thing is if people are soo opening and giving you know they’d come pick him up…I went out of my way to take him to Oklahoma and back and even take him to Ft. Worth after a rough day when he came over… (and we didnt even get to play, so thats like 45 minutes and I already had to use gas to take him back!)

So like I say if you all really gave two shits you’d make it happen…

You telling me if a prominent Capcom or 3s/Marvel player like Justin Wong was in town and far away none of you all would go pick him up???

Also I dont have a problem with Dallas players I’ve just realized… alot of you all are cool peeps like DJ Matrix, Acie, Eddy, Tony, Gualberto, Binh, 2d Tony, OJ, White Rice, PMD, Brian, even you krush, etc…theres just one person I have a problem with really… :rofl: :rofl: (and hes on permanent ignore)
