Last time, we were scheduled to start at 1:30 but due to location errors we extended to 2pm. If you are running late please call us so that we can enter you in the bracket. Also, I understand that some of us travel 2 and 3 hours, but that doesn’t mean show up and 8am when we are setting up. This year no one will be let in early, unless you are there to help and are personally connected to the ACT Staff. The event will start promptly at 11am with casuals going on until 2pm, which is the start of the first couple of tournaments. Want to register early if you’re already there? That’s fine. Want to register late because you didn’t show up on time? That’s NOT fine. In order for everything to run smoothly and in a timely manner we need your cooperation with this.

Outside food and drink are allowed, just please make sure that you dispose of your trash neatly. There are several restaurants around the arena and I will list them so that those traveling can pick something up before, during, or after the tournament.
Since it is Halloween(almost) costumes are allowed, just please do not distract the players or organizers.
Also, while coming to Aiken, please make sure that you are maintaining the speed limit. Cops in this town are dicks, it is a holiday weekend, and they don’t need a reason to pull you over.

Please bring your own controllers/sticks/adapters.

Please note while casuals are completely free, please do not hog a station, multiple sets are fine as well as warm ups, but give others a small chance to test skills and see if they would like to enter a tournament. Also, if a station is needed that casuals are being played on, we will ask nicely to stop your game so that we can accommodate tournament players and make things run a little smoother.

Also wireless controllers are allowed but please make sure you turn your controller off through the system so no one’s matches are interrupted.

All fighting games will follow the standard EVO rule-sets.

Stay posted for more news to come regarding rules, times, and prizes. See you in October.
