Since the last VanStreetBattle was such a huge success (other than the slight overrun causing the tourny to end abit later than expected, WHICH WILL DEFINITELY BE FIXED THIS TIME), we have had many demand for a 2nd one. So me and a couple guys have decided to put the time into it and organize ANOTHER VSB, exactly a month away from the last one, it’s going to be on March 5, 2011 and once again, same setup, with a few minor changes!
Here are some minor changes that we have come up with for now:
- More organized and efficient running of the pools, especially during teams. We spent too much time running the team brackets because we insisted on running most of the battles on the big screen last time. We will focus more on getting most of the matches done until we get to Top 4, then we’ll play it all on the big screen. Same goes for singles, we will be making maximum usage of the small side stations. We will be much more efficient with time this time, so nobody would have to drop out of the Singles tourny just cause we’re going to be running till late night.
- Pregistration We’ve made Venue Fee’s $15 for those who are registering at the door and you get a $5 discount if you’re pre-registering, we will have a dedicated person to take care of this and we will spend much less time with registration on the day of the tourny. So please, PLEASE try and pre-register (we just need your name and gamer-tag). You will still be paying at the door, I we will give you a confirmation # after you pre-reg and tell us that # when you show up, it will speed things up by ALOT.
- Registration Cap
- I know we probably won’t reach this cap but this will help us build the brackets ahead of time much easier, we’re limiting the registration #'s to 128. (as crazy as it sounds, we had around 100ppl joining last time, both teams and singles combined, so 128 is a very realistic number :))
Vancouver Street Battle Vol.02, March 5, 2011 @ E-Spot Billiards and Arcades (Richmond, BC)
-Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your NAME, DESIRED GAMERTAG, or PM me. I will give you a confirmation reply once you’re on the list. (PLEASE DO PRE-REG IF YOU’RE CERTAIN YOU’RE GOING TO JOIN, this will save me ALOT of time. THANKS!) Please note its for VSB Vol.02 so we don’t get you mixed up with the old emails from the first VSB!
- We will have a joystick sponsor this time, officially. If you guys havent noticed last time one of our volunteers Jackson is actually the owner of his own Stick Modding/Retailing Business “Canadian Joysticks”, this time he will be an official sponsor, we’re still working out deals on what exactly he’s hooking us up with, but since he’s a part of the tourny himself and he’s very motivated to help our scene grow I’m sure he’s gonna HOOK IT UP!

A few other things,
Sorry guys but theres a no outside food or drinks agreement with the venue, they sell drinks and snacks at the counter at reasonable costs. Just like last time, we will have the Japanese Ramen and Sushi trailors outside the Venue (which are VERY DELICIOUS)and there are also lots of restaurants around the area that’s within walking distance.
Bring your own sticks! Or if you don’t have an Xbox I’m sure there’ll be someone who’ll be willing to lend you their sticks for a match or something.
All top8 Singles and top4 Teams Tournament matches will be recorded and highlights will be uploaded and posted. This time around we should have a live stream as well, me and the other co-hosts are working on pitching in for the streaming device, we are also accepting donations if any of you guys would like to help pitching in Help your scene grow!
That’s all the info for now, you may contact me via email or leave a msg on the facebook page if you would like to pre-register, or have any questions.
Oh and we can never have enough volunteer workers! Please do contact me if you’re interested in volunteering as a helper on the day of the tourny!
