    Also to you other Soul Cal Peeps, we are planning our Soul Calibur 5 League in advanced. I know this is super early before the release date 1/31/11, but it's better for us to get this started now bc I felt that our SC4 League was great, but I didn't have enough time to plan everything, so the motivation seemed to be lacking in the end with some members. Not this time.

    Here is our Madison Soul Calibur 5 League!!!

    Our Soul Calibur Community will be doing Madison's SC5 League, which will start around 1st week of February. Everyone who will participate in our tournament must be a member of our League. You will become a member by paying $25.00 by February. However, if you pay earlier, you will pay significantly less for the membership fee.

    Here are the rates(a 1-time rate for membership); if you pay in the month of:
    October-$10.00 (OH NO, OVER!!!):sc2nm1:
    November-$12.00 (SS, CS, and then CF"D!!! NO MORE $12.00!!!!):sc1ivy1:
    December-$15.00 (Pay NOW, and if you're nice I'll only charge $10.00, NANCHATTE, HURRY AND PAY, or X and Lex will crybaby you forever!!!!!!!):sc1xia1::sc2xia1::sc2xia12::sc2xia3:
    January-$20.00(PAY NOW AND MAYBE I'll DECIDE to join the roster of SC Characters this time around....):sc2tal2: :sc2tal1::sc2tal3:

    Now many of you are asking, why this membership fee? What will we get out of this? This money will be used to buy awesome prizes. Like the last SC4 League, we will be splitting the players into tiers, Tier 1 and Tier 2, determined by skill of previous SC Tourneys and by primarily MysticBill and me. But unlike the SC4 League, after about 20 tournaments, we will have a Final 8 Tournament, with the 2 best Tier 1 and 6 Best Tier 2 players, where the top Tier 1 player and the top 2 Tier 2 players will win a prize, with the winner of the 8-man tourney getting to choose from:

    -HD 23" Monitor TV ($250.00)
    -PS3($250.00) OBTAINED!!!
    -SCVArcade Stick ($175.00)
    -Soul Calibur Collections-Artbooks, Figures, Trading Cards ($125.00)

    I put a guesstimation of how much would be needed, and $1000.00 should be an easy target for us. Any leftover money will be used to help improve our community and help tier 2's enter bigger non-Madison Tourneys like in Chicago or in IA. My proposal is to during a non-Madison Tourney, the top tier 2 players in the prior wk will get the opportunity to go travel with MysticBill and me to a bigger tourney. $10 will go towards gas, and $10 will help the top Tier 2 pay for part of the entry/venue fee; the 2nd best has to pay his/her way. Additional money or funds will help others buy equipment that they may be lacking such as controllers.

    THE FINAL 8-MAN Tournament:

    *It's important to note that in order for a tier 1 player to win any prize, they HAVE to finish in the top 3. If both Tier 1 players finish 1 and 2, only the 1st place person will win a prize and the 2nd place will lose.* IN addition, if you do not pay the membership fee, you will not only be ineligible to enter the Final 8 Tourney, you will also have to pay a higher entry fee in order to enter the tournament, however, you will be eligible to split the pot in the weekly tourneys. The higher amount that you paid will go directly to the Ultimate prize pack in the 8-man tourney, not the weekly money pot. The fourth and final prize will be the "MOST IMPROVED" AWARD to the one that the SC Community feels has improved their game the most, but did not get a prize during the 8-man tourney.


    Not paying for the membership will also affect your points that accumulate throughout the SC5 Series. The point system is going to be more complex than the SC4 tourney. Like the last tourney, you will be awarded points based on what your placement was: (example in an 8 man bracket) 7th place=1 point, 5th place-2 pts, 4th=3, 3rd=5, 2nd=7pts, 1st=9pts. That is still the same, but this time you are also rewarded for your wins. For each win in the winner's bracket you will get +2pts, but for each win in the loser's bracket you receive, you will only receive 1 point. Non-members will only receive half of their placement points, and one half of their points for their wins. To make it more interesting/strategic and to be forgiving of a possible awful performance in a tournament showing, anyone is allowed to pay $2.00 before the start of the tournament to double their point values ONE TIME ONLY, so think very strategically when you want to do this. This is like a lifeline. One what? ONE TIME ONLY!!! Also playing in a double elimination tournament, if an unseeded player beats a seeded player(4 seeds), they will get +2 bonus points. Seeds will be based on the previous week's results.


    The payout: most tourneys, it's planned to be $3 for the entry fee. The pot will be split 60-20-10 (10% of the pot going to the ultimate prize pool)in a 4-8 person tourney,
    but 9-14 ppl it will be split 50-25-10-5(10% of the pot will go for prize pool)
    and 15+ ppl will be split 40-20-15-10-5 (10% of the pot will go to the prize pool) (the 2 t-5th players must fight each other to see who officially will get 5th)
    Non-members will pay a $5 entry fee. (The additional 2 dollars will go to the Ultimate Prize pot)

    There will be bi-monthly $15 tourneys that will be split 60-25-10-5, none of the entry will be used for the prize pool.
    Non-members will pay a $21 entry fee. (The additional $6 will go to the Ultimate Prize pot.)

    I'm still not sure if I am going to have my own PS3 by then to help out with tournaments. But I will for sure have a copy of SC5 for use with league tournaments. If I can't Pouncer to drive me to the venue, I might need someone else to carpool me on over. Ex. Jimmy or Anduril16000 (if he still doesn't hate me and wants to) or someone else.

    I am sure you'll your copy of Soul Calibur 5 by that week. If I can't make it I will get a hold of Jimmy or Anduril16000 or someone else to see if you can be carpooled to the event. Give you money for fees and gas for your ride. I will be making it late (if I have to work that evening).

    Keep you all updated as time goes by (if I can or can't make it).

    EVERYONE, PLEASE REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR OWN CONTROLLERS!!!! This will be an enforced rule. It isn't fair for some to take advantage of other ppl's controllers, especially when these particular ppl DO have controllers, but are too god-damn lazy to bring them or they don't wanna pay $4.00 for a ps2->ps3 controller converter. You wanna enter our tourney, and scrap by by using other ppl's controllers, GOOD LUCK, but I cannot provide my controller to you guys anymore. 1 is broken, and the other one has a directional input problem. And that has all happened within a span of 5 wks. So I'm sorry to be an ASS, but I'm not letting some of you use my controller. If you can't play in a match bc there are no controllers for you, too f'n bad.

    I totally understand what your saying Jimmy. I would be too in the same mood if that happened to my controller. You must do what you need to do.

    Hey guys, no problem. We should be able to have 4-5 setups easily. We will need 4-5 of them to have a big amount of casuals. This is our first tourney, so everyone needs to set that good example of showing up ON TIME!!!! It does kinda piss me off sometimes that ppl are free and say they'll show up in 5 minutes, but they end up coming in 45 minutes or an hour or 2 for no reason. I won't be able to wait this time around. You're late, You're late, no waiting for you guys.

    This is also a thing that ppl will need to get used to in bigger tourneys. You can get DQ'd right away for not showing up, even if you are a couple minutes late for no reason or are not present for your next match, too bad.

    I understand Jimmy! I and mouse have to enforce that rule for our Yugi local and regional events. In the game this is how we give penalties (from the KDE tournament policy document): For example:

    Tardiness (T)

    T-Major: (Game Loss)
    * This Penalty is appropriate when a player is not in his or her seat after three minutes has passed from the beginning of the round.
    * A player must be in his or her seat and read to begin the round within this three-minute window.

    • A player is not in his or her seat within three minutes into the round.
    • A player sat at the wrong table and played the wrong opponent, and the mistake was caught after the three minute mark in the round, but before the 10 minute mark.

    T-Strict: (Match Loss)
    * This penalty is appropriate when a player is not in his or her seat after 10 minutes has passed since the beginning of the round.
    * A player should be in his or her seat and ready to begin the round at this time.

    • A player is not in his or hear seat within 10 minutes into the round.
    • A player sat at the wrong table and played the wrong opponent, and the mistake was caught after the 10 minute mark in the round.
    If I am late then I can accept a DQ for any of my matches.
