EVENT OVER:

For results, and aftermath go here: http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,2143.msg28125.html#msg28125

----------------------------
NEW DATE!!!!  Note that the date has changed.

Details?  What's below should overall be accurate - will edit and make sure shortly - for now take as mainly right:

NOTE - we have switched out SC4 for SF4 - due to the Regionals just having happened after this date, and the interest in SF4 of course.

--

Event -
Funhouse and OKgamers' will host a Street Fighter IV & Super Smash Bro's Brawl Monthly Tournament!

This month will again have an additional $100+ in cash thrown into the pot!  Read more below.

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!)


Why OKgamers helps?
We want to help out the SF4 and SSBB communities!  Also, monthly tournaments are held by some of the Tulsa area staff of OKgamers to get the word out about OKgamers.com - a site for Gamers & Businesses in Oklahoma 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?  -

 - Learn how College and HS students can get community service through volunteering with OKgamers!

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

Questions about the new Riverwalk curfew?  Go here.


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!)


Times -
SSBB 1v1
3:00pm - 3:45pm - Setup and Sign up [HARDWARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 3:45!]
4:00pm - Tournament starts, unless setting up hardware/bracket [ WE WILL NOT WAIT!  Be on-time, back and ready @ 4pm please :) ]

Street Fighter 4
5:00pm - 5:45pm - Setup and Signup [HARDARE NEEDS TO BE HERE BY 5:50pm!]
6:00pm - 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 -
SF4 - 60/30/10 of pot
SSBB 1v1 - 60/30/10 of pot   
(SSBB 2v2 will be free, unless all teams agree otherwise.)

$100 will be going into the pots for these games!  Our first event 100$ was thrown in by Funhouse, and just 1st place for SSBB got over $200!  More people show up, the POT GOES UP!


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$ tournament pot cost.  Any tournament you play in cost 5$, and goes into the 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

OKgamers staff make 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:
TENTATIVE - we are watching what the SF community has to say.  For now we'll go with
Console - PS3 or 3360??  Hardware that shows up the most, wins this event.

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

This means there are no bans on any characters.

Button Mapping allowed before the beginning of the match(?)
NO PAUSING - MAKE SURE you set your controllers before selecting a character!!

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 *

**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. 

WANT TO HELP US CAPTURE THE EVENT TO PUT ONLINE?  Bring a VCR, etc!!


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.  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!

Might be there. If so, I'll bring equipment.

You know my track record with me actually making it to these. So again assuming that my ride doesn't flake, I'll be there.

The only two chars that I've seen banned in tournament play are Seth (in a handful of events) and Gouken (in and even smaller group of events) and they are still up in the air.  Everyone allows Akuma.

Akuma is broken no matter what and I dont know were you got the info him being not but shoryuken forums clearly states he is playable in tournements. So I really think he should be allowed along with seth and gouken. Heres a link on akuma.

We're not talking about older games though, this is SF4 and, though he is an 'S' or 'A' tier char on alot of people's lists he isn't ban worthy in 4.

As it stands I don't see any reason to ban any character as several tournaments that are happening around the world haven't really declared a tournament standard yet due to the Console version of SF4 containing new playable chars and not that much time since release to test them thoroughly.

...also you contradicted yourself between your first post in this thread and this most recent post...

Get that train of thought BACK on the rail mang!

So you want all three banned...

As of SF4, Akuma has been balanced by the amount of damage he takes. Also as of Remix, Akuma's super was toned down(Part of what made Akuma unbalanced).

On rules for SF4 - I'd like to have a call made in the next week or so - so if Mj and others can keep an eye on results / SF community decisions - I'd like to go with what they say.

And Akuma always being banned is REDICULOUS - game to game everything can change, why on earth would we take nonSF4 rules for SF4...  So yea, to make myself clear on the request, rules for SF4 from the SF community only, not old rules for old games...

the only character i could care less about is Seth himself, other than that everyone is a clean slate in my eyes.

SSBB Is what brings in the people. More players to satisfy, and it helps pay the location fee and all that jazz.
