--

Can't wait till Janurary for our big TCC event?  Come get your practice and game on at OKgamers last event of the year - the LAST THROW DOWN 09 - at Funhouse at the Riverwalk!

THIS EVENT WILL HELP SEED BRACKETS FOR THE TCC EVENT - so show up, prove your the best, and get properly seeded at the TCC event!

Tulsa Community College Super Smash Bros Brawl, Halo 3 2v2, Street Fighter 4, Tekken 6, and Blaz Blue tournament here

Why OKgamers also throws events?
Our primary goal - a resource for gamers in OK, however we also want to help out the gaming communities!  All events held by our volunteer staff of OKgamers is to get the word out about OKgamers.com as well - the site for casual and hardcore gamers and businesses in the Oklahoma area to post gamer related events and tournaments, get players together, and go to find out what's going on in our area.  Tired of hearing Oklahoma has nothing to do?  OKgamers proves things are going on all the time!  Want to help out the OKgamers cause of spreading the word, so we actually KNOW what's going on around the area?  -
 - Join our staff!
 - Learn how College and HS students can get community service through volunteering with OKgamers!

YES gamers, we expect if you show up at our event, to be familiar with everything this thread has pointed out :)  
(As, there is no way to KNOW about this event fully, without this thread.  Please take the time to read up!)

Location -
Funhouse at the Riverwalk
500 Riverwalk Terrace, Suite 100
74037
Map: Google Maps link


Games -
Street Fighter 4 - 1v1
SSBB - 1v1
     (SSBB - 2v2 - if we have enough time; did last time, may not next time, etc.  See below on hardware!)
BlazBlue - 1v1
Tekken 6 - 1v1


Times -
SSBB 1v1
2:30pm - 3pm - Setup and Sign up [HARDWARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 2:45!]
3:00pm - Tournament starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket [ WE WILL NOT WAIT!  Be on-time, back and ready @ 3pm please :) ]

Street Fighter 4
3:00pm - 3:45pm - Setup and Signup [HARDARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 3:50pm!]
4:00pm - Tournament Starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket

Tekken 6
3:30pm - 4:00pm - Setup and Signup [HARDARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 4:20pm!]
4:30pm - Tournament Starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket

BlazBlue
4:00pm - 4:45pm - Setup and Signup [HARDARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 4:50pm!]
5:00pm - Tournament Starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket

SSBB 2v2
AFTER SSBB 1v1.  If we can get SSBB 1v1 done by around 8, we'll consider doing a 2v2, after assessing interest, and hardware present; it all comes down to having enough machines to do it quickly - both the 1v1, and then the 2v2.


PRIZES -

THANKS TO Columbia Pictures, Screen Gems, Fox Searchlight, and Focus Features for the awesome Movie related prizes and swag!  We'll be giving 2012 Hats and T's, "THIS IS IT" the Michael Jackson soundtrack, and even more swag from movies like 9, ARMORED, Legion and more!

All games entry fees go into their game's pot.  then:

SF4 - 60/30/10 of it's pot
SSBB 1v1 - 60/30/10 of it's pot  
BB - 60/30/10 of it's pot
Tekken 6 - 60/30/10 of it's pot
(SSBB 2v2 will be free, unless all teams agree otherwise.)


Cost -
Like most events, there is a location fee, and tournament fees.  Spectating?  Free.

5$ location cost - for those playing in a tournament (Think of it as the way to give back to them for hosting us.)
This gets you 10$ in tokens. [Tokens are Funhouse tokens, to spend on DDR, Initial D, Time Crisis, Soul Calibur 2, and other fun video games, as well as ticket games they have at that venue.]

YOU ONLY PAY LOCATION ONCE AN EVENT.

5$ per tournament pot cost.  Any tournament you play in cost 5$, and goes into that games' pot for 1-3rd.

TOTAL? =
Playing in SSBB 1v1 or SF4 tournament?  5 for location, 5 for tourny = $10
Playing in both SSBB 1v1 and SF4 tournaments? 5 for location, 10 for tournys = $15

AS YOU CAN SEE - OKgamers makes no money doing this, that's not what this is about - go read our goals.  This is all volunteer, in the hopes of improving Oklahoma by networking through one site for gamers.  Don't abuse staff, or give us a hard time - as we aren't getting paid to put up with it :)  


SPECTATORS -
This is a public location, and of course watching is free.  However, only tournament entrants, and staff may use the machines.  Spectators may watch, but are asked to leave the machines to those playing.


Street Fighter 4 Rules:
Format:    2/3 Rounds, 2/3 Games, Double Elimination, 99 Seconds, No Handicap
Rules:    If the players do not agree on a stage within 15 seconds, the match will be random stage select.
Console:  PS3

Non-Major: Default Settings 2/3 prelims, 3/5 semifinals, 3/5 finals
Majors and up: Default Settings 2/3 prelims, 3/5 semifinals, 4/7 finals

This means there are no bans on any characters.

Banned:
Any infinite banned


SSBB Rules -
* 3 stock 8 minute time limit
if there isn't a winner by the end of the time limit, then the winner is whoever has the most stocks. If stocks are tied it is whoever has LESS damage.
* all items are turned off
* if there are teams then team attack is ON

* Remaining rules for SSBB can be found here - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php?topic=1770.0 *


Tekken 6 and Blaz Blue rules still in finalization - you can find them here:
http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,2654.0.html

**IF A QUESTION ON RULES ARRISES BEFORE A MATCH STARTS, FIND A STAFF MEMBER!**
Let us resolve the rules, and get you going again!


What you need:
We seriously suggest you bring your own controllers.  We may happen to have a few extra around, but it's always best to bring your own - less concern about your performance as well :)  

Can you bring hardware?  It would help out!  A "Setup" consists of a TV, console, game, controllers if possible and save data.  TV - 19" or above, tube preferrably, and remote if you can't change to input on the front.  SF and SSBB - FULLY UNLOCKED (SF = all available, SSBB 'more rules' and all 35 characters, and levels), and any controllers would be appreciated, however we encourage people to bring their own.  And of course, the game, console and any required cables.  


How you should act:
We are at a public arcade - please respect all around you, and remember your in public - so act accordingly.

Spectators and Players - absolutely NO interference during a tournament match.  No harrasing your friends or their opponent, messing with controllers or settings, etc.  When 2 people play each other, they are to be respected and observed, not distrurbed.  Please do not test us on this :)


What else can you do - Well, spread the word!  Remember, not everyone finds a flyer or knows about OKgamers!  

***REMEMBER, WE DO RELY ON THE PLAYERS TO BRING ENOUGH HARDWARE - what is enough?  At least 2 to 3 setups for SF4, and 5 to 6 for SSBB, 2 for BB.  We will cancel a game's tournament if we do not have enough hardware that shows up ON TIME.(We ask hardware to be there typically 20 to 30 minutes before the tournament is set to start, see times.)  Why is this? OKgamers.com can only organizes events, yet as the front page explains we are not a company, nor do the venues we work with have everything.  Help us help you have a great event!


We reserve the right on ANY game to make on the spot changes to the tournament rules, such as a change to Single Elimination if there is not enough hardware, or too many people show up ["Too many" only determined by us not having the hardware brought to meet the demand in the time we have - be sure you understand that].  We have to be done no matter what at Funhouse by 11pm, thus the concern.  [Will we change?  Only if we HAVE to.  Hardware and you determine that.]  


Sharpen up your game, we'll see you soon!

Go out to your blogs and your websites and your myspaces - and link back to this thread - it helps - trust me.  Also, check out myspace and add us!

HxC has started a thread about improvements - since it's the newest in this conversation line of improvements please take a minute to clarify what you were confused about there:

http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,2569.0.html

And we'll look into it.  We've already got some stuff in the works, but yea, will review!

As for what you are doing - I do feel it's pretty well explained in the Volunteer thread - http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,1487.0.html

Comment there if you would, thanks!

As I recall you've both done well at the last few events.  PLEASE DO come to both, but especially the Jan event - I spoke with hundred of students over the course of this week...

...and more than a few that'll be gunning for the title of "BEST" in Halo, SF4, SSBB, and Tekken - BB didn't have any verbal challenges, but trust me, the word is out, and OKgamers asks the "Best" from our previous events to show and rep for their titles.
