Alright, I included a directory in the first post. You no longer have to scroll all the way down to read up on certain information. Instead, click on the links provided at the top of the first post.
Also, there was a suggestion made regarding our Swiss format that I’d like to incorporate for this week’s event: we’re going to do a cut-off. Instead of declaring the top 2 players from the Swiss rounds our winners, we’re going to pull the top 4 players and place them in a single-elimination, best 2 out of 3 bracket. The finalists will then receive prizes accordingly (70/30 spilt). This suggestion is contingent on the amount of time we have left during the event and is subject to change. Let us know what you think.
…Oh, and one last thing. Rumor has it that we might have a guest from out-of-state, who came for NCR, attend our event this week (6/22 - MvC3). So definitely come out this week, folks!
AZ here. Looks like we’re getting close to our 32-man cap! I’m going to add you all (including the folks that R.S.V.P. on Facebook) to Challonge’s sign-up sheet.
It also looks like we’ll have plenty of set-ups to run the event smoothly. We have two extra ASUS monitors, though. So you don’t have to bring additional monitors, SuperIrvine, but we could use more consoles and games.
Everyone else, just do the good folks at UCI a favor and make sure you’ve read the rules and arrive on time. I’d hate to drop people, but I really have no choice as we have only 3 1/2 hours to run an event and I want people to leave early because most of us have school or work the next day. Also, please come equip with joysticks for both consoles or at least know people that are willing to lend you a stick for a console you don’t own a stick for. I will provide non-Sanwa HORI sticks for PS3 and 360.
Thank you all for taking interest in our event, and I hope you enjoy this slightly different format!
