-$5(or more) entry games: 1st place = 70%, 2nd place = 20%, 3rd place = 10%
-$2 entry games:** “WINNER TAKES ALL”**

-The Flat rate charge will let you play for FREE the ENTIRE night, including the tournament and casual matches later on. This way people can have a lot more matches in and be able to enter every tournament without worry about expenses (except the entry fee).
-Minimum number of players needed for each game: 8
-All the money made from these Battles will be put towards: paying off and buying more cabinets+games and keep these cabinets in the BEST condition they can be in.

Tournament Rules:
-Seeding will be based on your “TGA Ranking Battle Points”. If you do not have any points you will be seeded randomly. Also, we of course will do our best to seperate players from facing their local competition; that way everyone won’t compete with someone they always play against (i.e. @ home).
-DOUBLE ELIMINATION! Best 2 out of 3. FOR ALL GAMES (yes, CvS2 also.)
-Winners and Losers Finals will be best 3 out of 5 (CvS2 and KoFXI will be 1 match only in the Loser’s Bracket).
-Grand Finals will be 4/7 (CvS2 and KoFXI will be 2/3 still).

Match-up and Game Rules:
-You are not obliged to stick with the same character throughout the ENTIRE tournament. You may switch up at anytime except when you win a match. If you lost a match or your about to face a new opponent, you may choose to stick with the same character you’ve been using or another character.
-If you lose, you can change your team/character. Winner must stick with the same character until he loses.
-CvS2, you MUST stay the same order if you win.
-SF3s you can change your SA (super art), even if you win.
-MvC2 and KoFXI you can change your team order, even if you win.
-There are to be NO GAME FREEZING GLITCHES IN ANY GAME. If you do i’m going to kick your ass! Plain and simple.

:wasted: :wasted: :wasted:

Aww darn my other points didn’t count and that was the worst I’ve placed so far :frowning: Oh well I’ll have to take it back ROAR! I’ll be there, of course! And Chibi I can house you for both this if you’re interested and the Tougeki quals.

this sounds so dope goddammit

gonna make fools cry in ae

I won’t be able to make this.

Realllllllllly wish I could, but I can’t.

Dippy, hold shit down!


u sux gavin i’ll be in cali!! oh well good shit

hold up folks, before i leave today, i’ll see something about date changes… :sweat:

why the results in ae wont change

  1. bacardi

**Would anyone mind that we hold this tourney on April 14th instead?


cuz you’re name isn’t bacardi no maww, its WALTERCLOPS! AKA WALTERACOLYPSE! AKA WILD KITTY! :looney:

Yes plz, 14th sounds good :D!

so no tga ranbat feb and march? april is too far to wait i think u should either leave it or just push it up a week or 2 so we can atleast get a ranbat a month even tho there was no ranbat in feb

The GTASF will be at Montreal Annual Tournament on the 31st. The 14th is a far better date as I’m on vacation and would be able to come down with a contingent of players again.

dont say that unless you plan on coming down guaranteed

I’m telling it how I see it. I couldn’t personally make it down to TGA last time for a number of reasons. This time I have the vacation time and desire to make it down, especially after hearing how much of a great time the GTASF players had last time.

Well since everyone would be more than ready for a rematch then I guess a move to the 14th would be nice, now gavin if we could still have another tourney till the 14th comes around…


I say push the date up and have another one in April. That sounds better for business seeing how Andy is going to have to buy 6-8 tickets for japan in June.
My vote is 2 tourneys! Now I just need someone who all the gamers lookup to, to co-sign that!:wonder:

Fuck KOF! Do A3 and if people hate on both there is always Vampire Savior:lovin:

Wile I’m at it; Team tourney along with the singles tourneys won’t hurt.

Teams for

Who wants to be on my ac team???:lovin:
