- PLEASE remember to preregister at www.arktourney.com/registration BEFORE August 18th to save money and help ensure that there is proper seeding. This will also help us run the event on time.
- We are now sponsored by The Traveling Circus, Gamer Grub, Rebel Son Management & Entertainment, and 8-Bit Sheek. More sponsors to come!
- Wireless Controller Rule Clarification- You are REQUIRED to take out your battery (360 controller) or desync your controller (PS3 controller) after your tournament match. If you fail to do so and affect another player's match, you will be subject to forfeiture of your future matches.
- SkullGirls will be on PS3. The release date for the patch that would speed up the 360 version's loading speeds is still unknown.
- Soul Calibur V rules have been readjusted to conform to the updated 8WayRun Ruleset. Of note, Hilde's "infinite" is no longer banned.
- Most setups will be Asus VH236H "Evo" monitors. Some setups MAY be Asus VH238H monitors which have the same input lag as the VH236H model (confirmed in the Sub 1 Frame HDTV thread). CRTs MAY be used if necessary, but we don't expect this to be the case.
- ARK V Shirts have been ordered. They are limited run and first come, first served. We cannot "reserve" any without payment. We will have 12 Smalls, 12 Mediums, 4 Larges, 5 XLs. A mockup of what the shirts should look like is here.
- Proceeds from our raffle will go towards Child's Play Charity and the Forest Sharp Memorial Fund. Forest Sharp was an aspiring Oklahoma T.O. who was killed in a car crash. The memorial fund will go towards erecting a gravestone for his grave.
- Brackets will be primarily run on the Tio Tournament Organizer software. Challonge will only be used if time permits.
- Housing requests have been updated to the best of my ability. A lot of requests occurred when I was on vacation so I may have missed them. If you are not on the list and requested housing (or would like to request housing), please let me know. We will do our best to accommodate everyone and provide floors to sleep on, but cannot make any guarantees. We will try to let people know one week in advance if we are able to secure housing.
- Afterparty money matches have been updated. If you would like yours streamed, please let me know and I'll add them to the list!
Our previous tournament, A.R.K. (Arkansas Regional Knockouts) IV, had almost 200 people, over $4000 in total pots, and special guests EG Justin Wong and MRN Marn! A.R.K. V is gearing up to be bigger and better. Our goal with this tournament is to feature the best that the South has to offer. Not only are we trying to showcase the best players in the region, we are also displaying the talent that the South has in other areas. Interrupted Gaming and Boom Gorillas are collaborating to do the A.R.K. V tournament stream. The after-party will be a live broadcast of PandaxGaming's Pandagon. In addition, almost all of the local tournament organizers and their communities will be in attendance including players from Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, and several other states.
Please join us, get blasted, and hopefully win some big money! We are expecting approximately 200 people to be here and total prizes to equal about $5000!
