DEVASTATION is back again for its seventh year and we have made some huge changes that will make it easier for everyone to play in as many tournaments as possible. We have finally made the transition into a true convention environment so now attendees need only purchase ticket for $35.00 to participate the entire weekend... and by participate we mean you can enter any tournament or contest that you can fit into your weekend schedule.

Video Games, Cosplay/Costuming, Rock! Paper! Scissors!, Push Up Contests and more!

EVENT REGISTRATION (Requires Ticket Purchase):




This year, every single tournament at DEVASTATION will have a preset prize amount for both the Grand Final Invitational Tournaments as well as prizes for each of the Qualifying Tournaments. All of the current prizes amounts are listed here; note that not all of the events have Qualifying Tournaments, some are stand-alone events. We also reserve the right to change the prize amount at any time. Qualifying Tournament Prizes are in Gift Cards or equivalent value.

DEVASTATION is, once again, raising the bar for tournament standards and setting precedents. In addition to every tournament and contest having a preset prize amount, many of the events will have Qualifying Tournaments leading up to the Grand Final Invitational Tournaments on Sunday.

In essence, each of these Qualifying Tournaments are stand-alone events; you can only enter one of the scheduled events for a specific title and there is a prize for the winner. The top two players in each of the Qualifying Tournaments will be asked to compete in a Grand Final Invitational Tournament. As the Grand Final Tournament is a stand-alone tournament, losses do not carry over and all the players have an equal chance to win it all.

For example: Marvel vs Capcom 3 will have four Qualifying Tournaments, two on Friday and two on Saturday. You can only sign up for one of these tournaments and, the winner of each tournament will take home a gift card or equivalent value in cash. The first and second place player from each of the four tournaments are allowed to compete in an eight-player Grand Final Invitational Tournament bracket on Sunday. The top three placers in the Grand Final Invitational Tournament win a portion of the $5,000 prize money.

To add to that example... if you and three friends attend DEVASTATION and want to compete in the Marvel vs Capcom 3 tournament, each of you can register in a different tournament and NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT PLAYING EACH OTHER! That is, of course, unless you each win and get moved on to the Grand Final Invitational Tournament. This bracket will be seeded as follows:
- Tournament 1, 1st Place Player vs Tournament 4, 2nd Place Player
- Tournament 2, 1st Place Player vs Tournament 3, 2nd Place Player
- Tournament 3, 1st Place Player vs Tournament 2, 2nd Place Player
- Tournament 4, 1st Place Player vs Tournament 1, 2nd Place Player

These rooms are at a discounted rate, but keep in mind that Phoenix in October is very popular and rates will be higher compared to previous DEVASTATION events that took place during the summer. We ask that everyone stay at the Hyatt and support our Event Hotel - it is by far the closet hotel at nearly 50 feet door-to-door.

You in San Jose? For how long? You should come play some offline games with me if it's for a while.
He's not old enough for offline, I would have played him by now if he was, seeing as how he lives 20 minutes from me
