It has come to my attention that there is not nearly enough mindless violence in our little community, and so with great anticipation, I present TYH, a tournament headlining Mortal Kombat 9!
The people have spoken, and I have listened.
TYH will now be hosting a King Of Fighters: XIII tournament INSTEAD of a Street Fighter: Third Strike tournament. Get Hype!
The tournament will be hosted at the XGC, with three side tournaments.
Those side tournaments will be a 2v2 MK tourney, BB, and KoF XIII.
Entry to the main tournament will be 5 Euro, with entry into any other side tournament being 3 Euro.
Alternatively, entry into all tournaments will be 10 Euro.
I will be at the XGC for about 11:30 on the day, anyone is welcome to turn up early for casuals.
Blazblue CS2 Tournament begins.
King Of Fighters: XIII Tournament begins.
Mortal Kombat: 2v2 Tag Tournament begins.
Mortal Kombat Main tournament begins.
Bear in mind this schedule is not concrete, and may subject to change depending on the running's of the day.
Each tournament will run the same format. Double elimination, with each match being first to two rounds, and best of three games, with the exception of the Grand Finals.
(With the exception of KoF, which will be best of one game only.)
The Grand Finals being best of five games, with the player coming from the losers bracket needing to win two sets of best of five.
(KoF Grand Finals will be best of three.)
Character change between games is allowed only by the loser of the previous game. If a player wins a game, they must stick to the character they used until either they lose, or the match is over.
(KoF will be character lock throughout the tournament, however order is changeable.)
Double-blind select is available if requested.
Button checks should be done before the match has started.
If the game is paused during a tournament match (accidental or otherwise), the player who paused will forfeit that game unless both players agree to continue.
Custom pads/sticks are allowed.
Custom button config/layouts are allowed.
For the MK tourney, if a player requires a custom button layout, please bring it to the attention of an Admin beforehand. (This is because of the awkward button config option in MK, which allows only 4 preset layouts.)
Concerning the MK 2v2 tournament; Partners will be decided by a random method. Certain players will be selected as "pickers", and the rest of the players names will be put into a hat, drawn out one by one.
Partners are not changeable/trade-able.
White Stage (KoF)
Chamber Of The Flame (MK)
Training Stage (BB)
The cash prizes will be divided up amongst the games in percentages as follows:
MK 1v1: 25% for winner, 10% for runner up.
MK 2v2: 10% each for winners.
BB: 15% for winner, 5% for runner up.
KoF: 15% for winner, 5% for runner up.
5% of the cash pool will go towards paying off rentals and community pot.
Test Your Hype will be the first tournament headling MK in Ireland, so show us some love folks!
So "Let's see what you're made of!" and "Show me what you can do!".
