General Rules:

You must take a round trip flight from the U.S., departing from and arriving back to one major U.S. airport of your choice. The flight will be to and from Narita Airport (Tokyo).
- Only the winning team will be granted this privilege, and the winning team must be available for the week of SBO to travel to the event and represent the USA.
- SBO is taking place this year in September 2010, but the exact date has not yet been announced. Remember to take the time difference and travel time into consideration.
- If you cause physical damage to any machine at Arcade UFO in any way for any reason, you will be ejected from the tournament and venue with no refund. If the person causing damage is on a team, the entire team will be ejected.
- In the case of a joystick or button malfunction, you must report the malfunction DURING THE MATCH. Once a match is over, it's done.
- If a joystick or button malfunction is reported, it will be tested thoroughly. If there is determined to be an issue, the machine will be repaired promptly and the match will be replayed. If there are determined to be no issues, you will be awarded a loss for the match. All rulings will be final.

in my defense, every single right facing atomic collider i dropped was because of CONTROLLER TECHNICALITIES

i tested it, DP to the right is more finicky than to the left, but i guess i shouldn't be so lazy with my DP's anyways. and now thanks to BBCS PC, which hates all motions unless they are perfect, i will hopefully drop fewer combos

so what are your thoughts on mu12 and DLC

i think mu12 is fine if she isn't proven to be broken, which i don't think she will... at least nowhere near bang or litchi

as far as DLC, i think each community and TO should decide on that one

and if someone comes out of state or something, and DLC is allowed, maybe they should get a practice round or two against anyone using a DLC character

Well for the DLC argument I don't care, i'd like them to be used since the arcade version will be getting a patch that will allow them as well, but in the future.  But if there is a difference than whoever normally uses one would have to abide by the rules, simple.

Mu-12 is a power hitter that looks like V-13, she can get good damage and all but she isn't that big a threat, HOWEVER her lasers interrupt active comboes which is stupid.
