I think this should honestly be a 2v2 tournament. If you split the prize money in four, not that many people will show up for 25$. Seriously think about that please.

Honestly, most people that play Halo aren't from Tulsa and it's gonna take 25 dollars in gas to get there. A 2v2 would be a better for people to show up.

Not at all! I explained why... Trust me it's going to take 25$ in gas for most people in the state that play halo 3 competitive to drive here.

Well showing up for $25 for free is worth it but $10 for second may cause some to decide not to go. Either way its free and worth attending in my opinion.

I agree. It just seems like there is not enough players to host a 4v4.

Then again, I will have a team for this little get together if it's not changed to 2v2. So it's up to you, inCHAINS.

What's the equipment situation? What do we need to bring? Will it be split-screen? Will it be v8? How will you handle Foundry maps?

Sorry for the long wait to respond, but I just signed up for a week long online class. I'm behind badly, I have to finish by Wednesday, I started yesterday. Right now I'm at 60% completion. So, on to important stuff, gaming.

Equipment:

TVs - We have 4 32" LCD TVs. They will be played on split screen if we stick with the 4 v 4 idea. They're good TVs that shouldn't cause any problems.

XBOXs - We have 4 of these as well. They're all in good condition, and new, so let's cross our fingers and wish the RROD bon voyage. We'll be using HD Component, so we can connect each one to the switchbox (more on that in a second).

Controllers - We have I 8 (if some of our friends aren't stingy). However, nearly all of them are wireless, if you have a controller you prefer, PLEASE BRING IT. Like if you prefer wired, or just want to show off your sexy custom controller, or you want to make sure the controller feels right to you, but we have back-ups just in case.

Other Consoles - We will have a couple PS3s and a Wii that you can play around on while you're waiting for your next turn. Games like NBA 2K10, (Possibly Red Dead if we get enough PS3s), Brawl, etc. We're even gonna break out some N64s for games like Super Smash. So that'll be there if you want it.

Spectator Mode - We have a sexy projector screen that we will be displaying gameplay from two players at a time. This is why we're using component, we have splitters (similar to those used with capture cards) that will enable us to split the HD cables into the TV and a switchbox. The switchbox sends the signals into the projector, I'll be hanging around to see which players are hot at the time and switch to their POV. Also, there sound will be on the big speakers, so feel free to bring your headset if you don't want to hear that. Essentially, we have a very similar set-up to MLG, if any of you are familiar with that.

Gametypes - We will be using V8. With Heretic replacing the Foundry variants except for Amplified, because it's sexy IMO.

Tournament Format - When you arrive there'll be 5 sign-up sheets (FIVE WHA?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!) four of them are for people who came without a team. Each will titled differently, "Main Slayer", "Objective", "Support", "All-Around", and "Four Man Team". Sign up on the appropriate section for you and we'll find you a team, unless you show up with one, in which case, you play with them. 4 v 4 single elimination, with a first to 4 series, which will play out in gametypes like Slayer, CtF, Slayer, Oddball...if it goes into OT...it starts over again.

Reasons why $25 bucks isn't that bad - So, yeah I know it's not a ton of money, but it's free to enter, no risk at all. You can play other games.You get to prove your dominance. You can win a door prize for extra money. Free Food and Drinks. The reason we only have this amount of money is that we want this to be a service, not something where people pay to play. We want to put this on for you guys. The way we came upon this money was one of us sold our Wii on Craigslist. Yes, needless to say the grandma who bought him the Wii was kinda upset. If nothing else, just come and enjoy yourself.

The Day of -  The address I gave you is of the church next to the house. To be upfront, the four of us who came up with this are Christian dudes, but we're not here to proselytize you. We just wanted to host an event we would want to go to. So, if you pull up and see a church, don't be like, HOLY **** RUN!!!!!!! Just go next door into the field and come into the house.


Any other ideas, questions, or suggestions can be directed to me here or on XbL: EZCO inCHAINS. Or just feel free to F/R me. I'll be at the BA GameStop at the UFC tourney this Saturday if anyone wants to come and hang out. Just thought I'd throw that in there, I'll be wearing a green Skelly Serves shirt.

And before this becomes more and more like a Match. com profile I'll peace out...back to the grindstone.

Thanks for the support guys,

David

It's best to take Amplified out as well, on split screen the map is shiny.
