Great news! We have found a solid location to hold smaller events in Columbia! To follow up on that news, we are pleased to announce that we will be starting a Ranking Battle (RanBat) for Tekken 6 and Street Fighter 4 starting on 2 January, 2010 (right around the corner!).
The venue is actually an old school which has been turned into a recreational center. The place is nice, it’s in central Columbia so it isn’t an unfair drive for anybody, the room is nice, big, and heated/cooled, there’s plenty of parking, there are places very close to get something to eat, and there’s even a jungle gym outside if you want to get your swing on. It’s also super affordable. The venue fee would amount to just a 2-3 dollars per person.
Here are the facts that are certain:
- All Ranbat dates will be Saturdays
- There will be a $2-3 door fee per event to pay for the venue. Any leftover moneys gets divided evenly between the two pots.
- Each game, Tekken 6 and Street Fighter 4, will have their own separate ranking points.
- Each game, Tekken 6 and Street Fighter 4, will have their own separate prize pool. The overall winners at the end of the season will split the pots 70/20/10 for 1st through 3rd for each game. Remember, both games are completely separate so you can finish the season with different placements in both games, you can win money in one but not the other, or win money in both, depending on your rankings.
- Detailed statistics will be kept and displayed on this website. This way you can easily see where you currently rank, get info on different players, and so forth.
We are going to announce full rules and further dates as soon as possible. We want this to be rock solid so everybody can count on knowing when and where this takes place so that the time can be set aside, you can get a day off work if necessary, etc. All dates will be on Saturdays, as most people have Saturdays off and most don’t have work the next day either. Stay tuned for more info!
