Here we go guys! As mentioned earlier the new Ranking Battle season is about to begin! And a new challenger has arrived!
When: Saturday August 2nd, and every second Saturday after that, 1PM till 6PM
Where: MC Internet Cafe, 62 Victoria Street West, Auckland CBD
Cost: $10 per person
What games will we be playing?
Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and new to our roster Super Smash Bros. Melee
What are the prizes are up for grabs?
Each Ranking Battle will have spot prizes to be given away depending on the overall number of entrants. After each tournament, an overall ranking for each game will be placed on the website, and at the end of the season prizes will be awarded to the winner of each game. We have yet to determine what the prizes are, but the main focus of Ranbats is to just get everyone together and playing in a competitive environment. In this spirit, we will also be giving prizes out to at the end of the season for other accolades as well, including most improved, and most supportive members etc. So while we don't know what the prizes are yet, we do have some cool ideas!
Can we play casuals as well?
Absolutely. We have planned for enough setups so that once we have completed the tournament, people are able to play casual games until 6PM when we need to pack up the venue!
But I'm a noob! I can't even beat BIRRYWONG!
Then it sounds like Ranbats is the perfect place for you to start! We have plenty of experience in fighting games, with tons of people willing to teach you. All the brackets will be seeded each week, so that you will get to play people matched up with your skill level. In no time you'll be crushing BIRRYWONG like the dirty, filthy, mashing scrub he is!
What dates is this happening on?
August the 2nd, 16th, and 30th. September 13th and 27th. October 11th and 25th. November 8th and 22nd
Will it be streamed?
Sure will be!!! Every tournament will be streamed each week! Obviously we wont have enough time to stream every match, so will make sure we stream all the finals matches, and then split the streaming equally among the different games
Alas it is Central Auckland, so parking will be pretty bad. Given that it is a Saturday though, most should be able to cope! Parking shouldn't be more than $10-00 at nearby parking facilities. I'd suggest that people travelling from a similar area look at car pooling, and others could consider using public transport. Reduce dat carbon footprint yo!
