Re: Conway, AR - A.R.K. III - SSF4/MvC3/T6/BB/AH3/Smash+More! - 4/2/11

Rules/Formats: We try to adhere to major tournament standards with as little modifications as possible. Thus, the rules we go by are the same rules encouraged by places such as Evo and the Smashboards.

Universal Rules:
- All brackets are double elimination.
- Double-Blind Select can always be chosen to begin a match.
- The winner of a game must stick with the same character used to win for the following game, except in the case of Smash Bros. Loser can always change characters.
- Player's Choice: All rules are subject to be ignored if agreed upon by both parties, however due to time constraints, matches cannot be extended longer than their allotted time (i.e. cannot play best 3 out of 5 when supposed to play 2 out of 3, or cannot change timer limits to infinity)
- Please Bring Your Own Controller: While there will probably be many players willing to lend you a controller/stick, there is NO guarantee. You WILL be disqualified if you cannot start the match within the allotted time.
- Players have six minutes to report to and begin their matches and will be disqualified if unable to do so.
- It is the player's responsibility to notify a staffer over a dispute on rules.
- Staffers will be identifiable through the use of name badges.
- Button mapping and converters ARE allowed while turbo is NOT.
- Winners are required to notify staffers of the results of their match. This will speed up the process greatly and help us run a smooth tournament.
- Wireless sticks/pads/remotes will be allowed. However, we require that you pull out your battery when you are not playing to avoid disrupting tournament matches.
- In addition, pausing or restarting the game/match for any reason, except with the consent of the opponent will result in a forfeit of that particular game/round (whichever is smaller). This includes battery/controller problems.
- Every person is responsible for the functionality of their controller. A "button check" may (and should) be asked for prior to every match. A player cannot request a button check once damage has been taken and must finish the game (but may ask for another button check at the beginning of the next game). If a controller is non-functional or is functioning incorrectly, the player must receive consent from his or her opponent before pausing the match.

SSBMelee:
- 4 stock, 8 minute time limit
- 2/3 games, 3/5 games Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals
- Items off
- Games decided first by lives, then %. Sudden death is used to break ties.
- Stage Knock Out: Stage Striking will be in effect for the first match of the set. The player with the lower port will get to choose the first strike. Loser chooses ban before next match.
- Modified DSR: You cannot go back to the last stage you won in a set, unless agreed upon by the other player.
- Advanced Slob Picks: Loser may choose the next stage or select to go random. The winner may then change their character, followed by the loser.
- Controller Mods, Glitches (IC Freeze Glitch, Mewtwo Soul Stunner, etc), Wobbling, and tactics used to stall a match (wall-bombing, rising pound), are banned.

Neutrals:
FD
Yoshis
Dreamland
Battlefield
Fountain of Dreams

Counterpicks 1v1:
Kongo Jungle
Brinstar
Rainbow Cruise
Pokemon Stadium

SSBBrawl:
SBR Certified
- 3 Stock, 8 minute timer
- Items are set to "off" and "none"
- 2/3 games, 3/5 games Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals
- Players are allowed to ban ONE Starter/Counter stage prior to a match.
- At the beginning of the first game, players alternate "slashing" starter stages until one stage is left.
- Advanced Slob Picks: Loser may choose the next stage or select to go random. The winner may then change their character, followed by the loser.
- In the event of a dispute, controller ports will be selected by Rock-Paper-Scissors
- Port slob picks: On a player's counterpick, that player may opt to redo the port selection process with that player picking his or her port first.
- No player may choose a stage they have already won on in that set unless agreed upon by both players.
- Games decided first by stock and then by percentage. If percents are the same or both players die simultaneously, there will be a 1 stock overtime. Bowser's suicide klaw is exempt from this rule.
- If a game ends with Bowser doing his suicide klaw and it ends in sudden death, the sudden death will be ignored and that game will count as a win for Bowser.
- Metaknight's Infinite Cape glitch is banned.
- Stalling is banned. Stalling: The act of deliberately avoiding any and all conflict so that one may make the game unplayable. Running away from an opponent to reach a better position is not stalling, while doing an infinite grab endlessly against a wall is. Any infinite chain grabs must end quickly after 300% has been reached so as to prevent excessive stalling.

2v2 Teams:
Quote from: YOSH
I saw someone was wondering about teams in brawl if it's wanted and if there's time. The only change/s to the rules are that team attack is turned on, and the controller ports go as 1 2 2 1 (or 2 1 1 2), and again, if there's a dispute on port then RPS is played. There is generally a courtesy that if a team has a Sonic or a Lucario, then that team gets to choose the blue color because their red and green colors make it difficult to distinguish which team they're on.

SSF4:
Default Settings.
2/3 rounds, 2/3 games, 99 seconds (Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals are 3/5 games).
Player's must agree on a stage within 15 seconds or match will be RANDOM stage select.
Ties result in replays.

3v3 Teams:
Same rules as above except as follows:
Double Elimination
Single Game
Pokemon style

MvC3:
Default Settings.
2/3 games (Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals are 3/5 games).
Simple Mode: OFF
DLC Characters: ALLOWED

Tentative ruling on all game-breaking glitches which make it impossible for at least one player to continue fighting (such as the Zero glitch):
- If the instigator of the glitch is winning before he performs the glitch, the game is to be replayed as if it never happened. If he/she is losing, the game counts as a loss.
Other glitches (i.e. TAC canceling and damage scaling reset glitches) are ALLOWED.

3v3 Teams:
Same rules as above except as follows:
Double Elimination
Single Game
Pokemon style

Tekken 6:
Default Settings
3/5 rounds, 2/3 games, 60 Seconds (Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals are 3/5 games)
Player's must agree on a stage within 15 seconds or match will be RANDOM stage select.
No customizing colors, names or items at any time before or during a tournament match.

BlazBlue:CS
Round Time 99 Seconds
2/3 games until Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals which is 3/5 games.
Beginner Mode: OFF (Beginner Mode involves the use of the right analog stick to perform instant specials with zero effort).
Unlimited Characters in BlazBlue BANNED.
DLC Characters ALLOWED

Arcana Heart 3
Round Time: 60 seconds
2/3 games until Loser's/Winner's/Grand Finals which is 3/5 games.
4:3 Resolution
Simple Mode: OFF

Mystery Game Tournament
1. Each round will feature a different 1 vs. 1 game. Each game and the rules for each will be announced at the beginning of each round.
2. Due to the issues involved with configuring controllers for PC games, please use the controllers provided. If there is an issue with one of the controllers provided, please let the tournament official know.

Additional Details:
We encourage everybody to bring any and all equipment if possible. This will speed up tournaments and help everything run more smoothly. We request that all equipment be "checked-in" 30 minutes before tournaments begin to run the smoothest possible tournament.

We require all incoming equipment be labeled at Check-In to avoid theft and accusations thereof. Even so, we encourage all people to keep their sticks/controllers/battery packs on-hand at all times as we are not responsible for missing equipment.

Photography of the event and recording of matches is allowed and even encouraged. However, flash photography is not allowed during matches, due to obvious concerns of distraction. If you record videos or take pictures, please contact me and I will upload the videos to my Youtube account and pictures to my Photobucket account, accessible to everybody on the results page (credit given to you, of course).

The official ARK III stream will be hosted by Arkansas' own Rawkus with a separate recording station for the non-Capcom games run by GBS Giovanni. As before, stream station matches will be available for all to see via projector. ARK III is also proud to welcome SRK's Snoooootch who will provide additional media coverage.

For the major tournaments (except for SSF4 and MvC3), PS3 is the console of choice used due to compatibility concerns within the community. The 360 may be used for games that are not supported on PS3 (i.e. if Garou gets voted in) or if there is not sufficient equipment. CRTs and lagless LCDs are the televisions of choice for the tournament.

We appreciate everybody that travels and we know that players are just looking for competition. If you inform us of your party, we will do our best to ensure that you do not play each other in the opening round of the bracket (location-based seeding).

Attendees are encouraged to participate in multiple tournaments. The brackets will skip you if you are currently in a match.

Any game with sufficient interest (via vote-in) will be run as a minor tournament. We reserve the right to cancel tournaments at any time if there is no "real" interest. That is, if a game gets 20 votes and only 3 people show up to the event, we will not host a tournament. Please do not vote unless you think you are going to go.

Results will be posted within 48 hours following the event. Pictures, brackets, standings, and pay-out will all be posted accordingly.

Partners/Affiliates:
ARFGN - We thank the Arkansas Fighting Game Network for co-hosting A.R.K. III and allowing each iteration of the tournament to be a success. These guys are a dedicated group of gamers that are focused not only in improving their games, but also in improving the community. If you're an Arkansas resident, don't forget to join the ARFGN Facebook group to stay updated on local events happening around the region!

Conway Gaming Center feat. the Kwadkade - The other co-hosts of A.R.K. III. We thank CGC for the use of their venue and their ongoing support of the Arkansas Fighting Game Network. They have gone above and beyond what we've asked of them and they have worked hard to be at the place that they are now. I honestly believe that they are the best cardshop / LAN center in Arkansas and I encourage everyone to thank these guys at the tournament for doing such an amazing job! Also, make sure to like them on Facebook!

DFW Fight Club - The gracious hosts of the 'UPPER'-CUT Southern Championship have been excellent supporters of the ARFGN. We thank them for all that they have done, not least of which includes bringing eight complete SSF4 setups to A.R.K. III.

Andrew MacEntee of NewKind Designs - One of the first supporters of A.R.K. III and a very good friend, Andrew put up this lovely piece of work to help advertise our event. Thank you for all of your hard work, sir!

Snoooootch - Definitely one of the best out-of-state supporters of the Arkansas Fighting Game Network, Snoooootch has helped put Arkansas on the map in terms of national exposure. He recorded footage of us at Absolute Battle, he showcased one of Arkansas' best SSF4 talents, and he made the official A.R.K. III Promotional Video! Be sure to visit his official Youtube channel and subscribe!

Little Rock Game Con - Huge supporters of the ARFGN and A.R.K. III. These guys host Arkansas' largest and best joint Anime/Gaming Conventions. They have exciting news in store for everyone, so make sure to always stay updated by joining their Facebook Group!

For the hardcore, don't worry, he has over 32 lagless monitors (tested by ARK Misfit) each with its own headphone setup to help immerse the gamer. If you live in Little Rock or you just want to drop by, visit his site here for more information!

Game Xchange of Conway - A great company with a bunch of nice employees. They've always allowed us to hang fliers at their location at no hassle.

TEKKEN PLAYERS - take Solidus!  He's been a great help to local gaming, and isn't even competition for you guys, he plays Smash - so win-win?  :)


SmokeMaxX - make sure you guys bring some flyers for this out to 3/26 - will make sure to put them out like you did for us that last event I made it out to, etc.
