First Blood Poster
Standing Fierce, in association with Mad Catz and Tritton are proud to present the first tournament of 2014:


FIRST BLOOD 4!!!!!

Saturday March 8th

10am until 9pm

At the Auckland Rose Park Hotel (http://www.aucklandroseparkhotel.co.nz/)

$15 registration fee +$10 per game. Registration closes Friday 7th of March.

Time to get serious, Christmas time is over and it is a brand new year. That means: BRAND NEW CHAMPIONS

With the pending release of Ultra Street Fighter 4, this could be the last chance to be the winner of a Super Street Fighter 4 tournament!

Last year was quite a busy year for us and this year looks to be just as jam packed with events, so what better way to kick off then by coming along and jamming out and catching up with everyone.

Not only that, but we MIGHT* have some kind of raffle going on for something cool, but you need to be there on the day to find out.

We will be finalizing details about our stream which we will be running, this year we are hoping to run streams at all our major events, so if you have thought about being a commentator, come down and you might be one of the lucky few that gets a go at commentating matches.

So official tournament games will be:

Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012
Ultimate Marvel Versus Capcom 3
Tekken Tag Tournament 2
Street Fighter X Tekken
Killer Instinct*

As always if there aren't enough tournament entrants then we won't run a tournament.
Double Elimination Brackets
A required minimum of 8 people per game.
*A required minimum of 16 people are needed for Killer Instinct.

Registrations can be found here: http://www.standingfierce.com/forum/vie ... f=1&t=1050

Rules and Regulations:

Tournament Rules:

WHAT UP FGC! Kurt and Dave of Standing Fierce proudly present:

XMAS DAMAGER 4!!!!!

Date: Saturday November 30th
Price: $10 registration fee +$10 per game (Registration closes 28th of November).

Venue: Garrisons Public House, Sylvia Park Shopping Complex, Auckland

Well It's almost that time of the year again, and what better way to kick off the Christmas holidays than to come along to the fourth installment of everyone's favourite end of year tournament!

For Xmas Damager this year we decided, that along with our standard tournament setup, we would take shit back to the old school of hype with an exclusive Marvel vs Capcom 2 invitational tournament!!!
This features an invite only, 8 man bracket made up of some of the best Marvel 2 players this country has to offer.

SO IF YOU LIKE ROM'S, PSYBLADE'S AND OUROBOROS THEN GET HYPE!!!

Of course if you aren't a Marvel 2 aficionado you can still come along and enter into our Street Fighter 4, Tekken Tag 2 or Marvel vs Capcom 3 brackets!

And If that still hasn't caught your attention, then just come along and kick it with Dave, Kurt and the Standing Fierce homies over a couple brews while watching some hype matches!!!
 
Open Tournament Games (open to anyone):

Super Street Fighter 4 AE2012
Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3
Tekken Tag Tournament 2

Invite Only:
 
Marvel vs Capcom 2

Double Elimination Brackets
A required minimum of 8 people per game.

Make sure if you are 18 or older you bring along your ID and some spending money. If you are not quite old enough yet, don't worry you can still come along and join in the fun as long as you bring a parent or guardian over the age of 18.
