Evo is upon us again, and as always, we will host side tournaments for the games that aren't officially on the evo lineup! However, this can not happen without your help! We need full setups and volunteers to help run everything.
- I would like to have 8-10 full setups this year (last year we only had 6-7) to run two pool at once. If you can volunteer equipment (PS3s and TVs), please let me know! We will also need copies of the games as well.
- We also need volunteers to run pools as well, I can't do everything, or else I would collapse from exhaustion.
- I would like one stream station (ideally two) to showcase some pool matches as well as top 8.
Games and Format:
- Guilty Gear AC+R, Persona 4: Arena. Both are singles. Both capped at 128 entrants.
- All games on PS3
- All games are $5 per player
- Pot split each tournament is 60/30/10
- All tournaments are double elimination pools. All matches are best of three except grand finals, which is best of five
- All brackets will be randomly generated, no seeding.
- The top 2 of each pool advances to top 8.
- If we have time, then we can also run BBCP teams (no idea on format, open to suggestions).
- No EX, Shadow, Gold characters
- In-game button macros are allowed only if both players agree to it. If neither player says anything, then they are disabled by default. If someone notices they are using macros when they should be disabled then offending player forfeits the match.
- No programmable controllers
Persona 4: Arena
- No programmable controllers
This will be run on Friday since BBCP is being run on Saturday. I want to avoid that day since we will likely have the most player overlap with that game. Tentatively, we will take signups until 1 hour before pools start, then 30 minutes to create the brackets and post them, then 30 minutes for word to spread around, then start promptly at noon for gg and 4pm for p4. If that doesn't work for you, find me anytime the day before hte tournament, give me money, and i'll sign you up. I'm the 5foot 4 inch asian guy wearing a cowboy hat
Signups end at 11am
Noon-2pm: Pools 1 and 2
2pm-4pm: Pools 3 and 4
4pm-5:30pm: Top 8
Pools for P4Arena will start as soon as Pools for GG finish, top 8 for GG will still be running during P4Arena Pools 1 and 2
Signups end at 3pm
4pm-6pm: Pools 1 and 2
6pm-8pm: Pools 3 and 4
8pm-9:30pm: Top 8
No Online Registration:
Unlike last year, I will not be taking signups online. Nevertheless, please post in this thread if you're interested to help me gauge how much equipment/time we need to finish this tournament.
If you see me at evo the day before the tournament, feel free to tell me and give me your entry fee, but otherwise, no signups beforehand. No IOUs, if you don't have money, then I am not signing you up.
