WHEN: Thursday, October 20th 2011 @ 11 PM Central (12 AM Eastern / 9 PM Pacific / 5 AM London)
WHERE: The PlayStation Network / SFCCL Clubhouse (invite only)
HOW: Just be online at the above time to be invited
DETAILS: Members will assemble in a Tournament Mode lobby. First member to win 2 tournaments will claim 1st Place, while the 2nd Member to win 2 tournaments will claim 2nd Place. Members are free to use any of the 35 characters in SSFIV:AE. All matches will be 3-round matches. In the case of more than 8 members participating, two equal-numbered separate lobbies will be used to determine a final match. The first members to win 2 tournaments in their respective lobbies will advance to the Fall Brawl final match & face the winner of the other lobby. This final match will be the standard best 2 out of 3 3-round match. The winner of this final match will claim 1st Place while the runner-up will earn 2nd Place. Members will be assigned to each lobby (if necessary) on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once in the Tournament Lobby, the “random” matchup feature will be used for each tournament.
PRIZES: The member to win 1st Place will be awarded an additional "Win" for each of their fighters in the division standings (2 wins total). The member to win 2nd Place team will be awarded one additional "Win" for one of their fighters (their choice) in the division standings (1 win total).
NOTES: This year’s Fall Brawl tournament is very different that last seasons. Since we changed the format for this season, conducting a division-by-division tournament isn’t possible this season with the open format we are using. Therefore, to continue the tradition of playing live events within the various online modes this season, this year’s Fall Brawl will utilize the rarely used Tournament Mode online. For those that played last season, this tri-week event was not popular with some higher ranked members & created some embarrassing moments (for them…not me). :P
Since War Games took place on Aug 19th and the 2vs2 Tournament took place on Sept 18th, it only makes sense that the final event, Fall Brawl, take place on the 20th of October! The first event catered to the West Coast members while the second event catered to both the European and East Coast members. Only 8 members played in the 2vs2 Tournament, and only 9 members played in the War Games.
Finally, I plan on making an announcement about next season within the next two weeks. I plan to hold off posting anything until after the FALL BRAWL event as to give its proper recognition.
