Title: 2011 SSF4 Fortnightly Ranking Battles - 23rd April
Post by: Rorooze on January 10, 2011, 12:08:54 pm
2011 Fortnightly Ranking Battles

A new year and a whole heap of NZism events to look forward to! NZism will be continuing with the fortnightly ranbats at Giga on a Friday night in addition to other tournaments which will be announced at a later date. We plan to include games such as BlazBlue: Continuum Shift and Marvel vs Capcom 3 this year, in addition to continuing support for SSF4. It is not clear at this stage if the new games will also have double elimination brackets, like SSF4, or if we will be providing something else, like round robin, single elimination brackets or casual setups. Other games may also be supported, depending on their popularity and availability. BB:CS is likely to be run on PS3 while MVC3 will be on Xbox360.

Games Played
Super Street Fighter IV
Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Blazblue: Continuum Shift

Cost
As previously, the cost remains at $10 dollars, regardless of what games you want to play. Newcomers are given free entry for their first time to encourage people to come check out the ranbats, so if any of you regulars see someone down at the arcade or want to bring a friend along that’d be great!

Where
Ranbats will be held at Giga Internet Cafe, Level 2, 65 Wakefield Street, Auckland Central.

When
The ranbats typically run from 6pm through to 10pm and will be held on the following dates (subject to change)
28th January, 11th 25th February, 25th March, 8th 23rd April, 20th May, 3rd 17th June, 1st July, 12th 26th August, 9th September, 7th 21st October, 4th 18th November.

SSF4 Ranking Battle Format
Based on feedback from people within the community and similar events happening overseas we have decided to change the format of the ranbats to increase the competitiveness of the events and to prevent scaring off newcomers!

We will run two separate brackets with a promotion/demotion system. The top players within the community will all be put into the ‘top-tier’ bracket (16 players max) and the remaining players will be in the ‘low-tier’ bracket. Players who win the ‘low-tier’ bracket will be promoted to the ‘top-tier’ bracket and conversely, players from the ‘top-tier’ bracket that fail to win games will be demoted to the ‘low-tier’ bracket.

Initially the players will be split based on past tournament and ranking battle results. Newcomers will always be put into the ‘low-tier’ bracket. Under certain circumstances, you may not get promoted or demoted, this is completely up to the organisers.

Q&A
What do I need to bring to ranbats?
Arcade sticks are always welcome, we usually don’t have enough of these! Xbox360s aren’t usually required however if you are able to bring one along, please let me know so if we’re short for an event for whatever reason I can get in touch with you.

How do the casual setups work?
It’s fairly straight forward, find someone you’d like to have a set with (best of 3 games, best of 3 rounds), sit down and play. Once the set is over, both players get off. The ranbats is not an arcade, winner doesn’t stay on! This is so everyone gets a fair amount of games and to promote discussion between players. If you lose in the double elimination bracket, this is a great way to run it back.

That should be it, feel free to post your thoughts or questions below. At the first ranbats of this year we'll be doing the draw for a copy of MVC3, so make sure you're there!

SSF4 Promotions, Demotions and Top Tier List
28/01/2010: Dave and TommyHarmonic promoted, Smoof demoted.

question,
How do you determine who goe sit what bracket? also for those not regular, like myself, how do we get put into the brackets? i come once every 2-3 ranbats.
Title: Re: 2011 SSF4 Fortnightly Ranking Battles - 28th January
Post by: Rorooze on January 10, 2011, 03:48:39 pm
It's pretty simple how we've split the brackets. I've drafted up a table with results from 2010 ranbats (both seasons) and tournaments (nationals and christmas damager) and ranked everyone based on those. The top 16 are in the top tier and everyone else is in the low tier.

However, there were some people (such as Kevin and iMagneto) that didn't make it into top tier because they don't often attend ranbats, but because they [edit]placed well[/edit] in a NZism tournament I've put them into the top tier bracket anyway. So we have about 20 people in the top tier and everyone else is in the lower tier.

Now lets say I enter a ranbats and beast everyone in the lower tier, I'll get promoted to the top tier and someone who lost both their games in the top tier will be demoted to the bottom tier. Hope that's clear?

Man marvel gonna bring heaps of newcomers i bet. LIke sf4 when console release. I mean blazblue even brought some newcomers and everyone i know never even heard of it. I can't wait for marvel mane.

And that's a good format. Except that makes it sound like there's gonna be heaps of people there lol. I mean wasn't there 16 people all together there last time lol. Well that time i was there anyway.

Cant wait for this. Really like that S/A tier format, reminds of what I heard Valle was doing over there in the USA for his ranbats. Are there prizes for coming first etc?
Title: Re: 2011 SSF4 Fortnightly Ranking Battles - 28th January
Post by: Rorooze on January 10, 2011, 08:57:36 pm
We're trying to come up with some prizes for ranbats, without another new game on the horizon we can't rely on the raffle idea like last season. Once we have the details it'll be posted in this thread!

Yeah the S/A tier thing should be good, people can still mix it up on the casual setups if they wanted to play someone that wasn't in their tier as well, so no one should really miss out on anything!

In terms of prizes, let me put it this way. It's not a yes, but it's DEFINITELY not a no.

2011 is the year we start getting ambitious. It's gonna be a good time to be a fighting game fan in nz.

Get Hype people. That's not a request. That's BIRRY fucking WONG TELLING you to get hype.

Post by: [NIUE] BIRRY WONG on January 25, 2011, 11:46:48 am
Both, but bear in mind this part of rorys original post.

QuoteIt is not clear at this stage if the new games will also have double elimination brackets, like SSF4, or if we will be providing something else, like round robin, single elimination brackets or casual setups.

Basically, this will depend on numbers from week to week. Obviously, the more regulars we have, the more we can invest in BB in terms of time/setups etc.

If anyone wants to play BB:CS they just need to make sure someone brings PS3 sticks and a copy of the game in case we forget to bring one. We will definitely be happy to put on a setup for it from 7 till 10 if the demand is there (say, 4 people). As long as people bring the gear, we'll run the setup. :D

Yaaaaaaaaay BB. Like Graeme said, BB players better get on their shit and come. If you don't show your support for the game at things like this, then you can't complain when they cut BB out of tournaments and stuff right?

Don't be a hermit.

GG to everyone tonight, Especially Josh, Jack, Eru and Simon excellent advice and observations.

Yay as for making the grand final, but stink as for getting smashed by the power of Jack's Akuma in said final.
Props to Rory and crew for the well organized session. Can't wait for the next one.

These ranbats just keep getting better. GGs Lenny, Bill and James - welcome back. Congrats to Electric for winning the MvC3 draw. It was great to see alot of new blood and the splitting up of the brackets was an awesome idea. Congrats to Jack and TommyHamonical for winning their respective bracket finals.
Already geared up for the next one.

Now, back to the lab...

I'm really pleased with it. Fucking awesome turnout. REALLY happy with the bracket splitting. That made shit hype as. Hope you guys took your Livewire flyers. Thats 5% off all games FOREVER. GG's boys. GG's to Eru for backdashing into U1. You should've just given me the match there bro. Bad form. But nevermind. You can improve on your etiquette for next time. GG's rumble. Always fun.

Good shit to the first timers as well. Hope to see you boys more and more.

Best ranbats yet. By far.

If only we knew where our beast laminated brackets are...

One night after Ranbats we should just have a mean as piss up at Euans place. He could train in for ranbats then someone could give him a ride back and we all get smashed and sleep on his floor.
Bro, this master plan needs to be put in action.

And Jacks Akuma still smashing niggaz lol. Don't let him get seeded at the nats boys. A random gdkl T.Hawk might knock him out in the pools!

WHo went to play BB?

kungs singing the transformers theme did not help my other game, even if it was super awesome :D

GGs all.

James, I know Rose cant really do much about the vortex, but i think that you just need more experience against Akuma. Try putting what we discussed into play, i think that it will definitely help you out against him.

Good to see everyone leveling up so much. Especially Dave and Tommy. I think the 2 brackets system worked very well, nice work as always Rory! Shot for the ride there and to Simon for the ride home :)

boo Sol boo. My Yang wants revenge against cheap Honda on Monday.

Really liked how the new system is working with the tier and promotion/demotion. Where were the laminated brackets we usually have? Was cool seeing all the new faces as well.

Special GG to SOL, Lenny and James. James you really put me on notice with that Rose of yours crushing me into the ground. Clearly I need more training but cheers for the games.

Gratz to Eru (Not Really) for winning MvC3 and to the organizer team... Great first Ranbat.

GG's everybody,
It was a cool night. Its been a while since Ive come out of hiding and looks like my lab practice is finally starting to show :) Cool idea with the brackets, now I can always brag about winning a sf tourney at least once in my life. Only way it would ever happen, lol.
Great games Dave, the room sure seemed to get a lot hotter for our finals, or maybee I was just nervous as hell :-[ Those matches were uber close and you really seemed to adapt from our earlier battle, could have gone either way. Special thanks to those watching our finals for making it hype as, It was cool to hear people react to our play, and really gave it a high pressure atmosphere. Like an evo for scrubs ;D
Shot to Roryus and Bill for making it happen, To Jack for the nice things you had to say and for not wasting me tooo bad! lol, I remember you not demoning me on a couple of silly frantic jump ins of mine. Was almost offended :-\
Shout outs to the rest of you guys too, one name at a time, cool event, peace

Oh and sorry to James for showing up with your character and showing you how to win a tourney :-* JJ, your rose is super dope, enjoyed watching you play and took in a few things to. Sorry for borrowing your harlot, as you two appeared to have been exclusive before I came back

As usual, if the demand is there we will accommodate it. We'll just use an xbox for it, easier than bringing in a PS2 + CRT.

BTW if we get the same turnout as we did last time we'll probably try get another setup going anyway.

$2000 pot so far. That should be your motivation.

Have a hundred people entered already? Just for Hyper Fighter?

What are these guys doing right to get that many people that NZism isn't?

Yeah, but how many people did we have playing HF at damager? Or ST at Nationals last year?
Seems like there's an awareness/perception of NZism missing maybe..

A guy on facebook runs a random comp and gets that many people interested?

At the very least i would think the organizers would be taking a hard look at that.

Relax. It's not under my radar by any means. If that many people are into HF, we need to get them on the site and start running HF events IMO.

I think it's just networking.

Bingo. Look at this dude. Hes a reasonably well-known DJ with a lot of connections. He has FOUR THOUSAND facebook friends. He invited all of them. Realistically, the numbers hes getting are great, but we would get that much if we got our promo on to 4000 people as well. And also, a lot of those guys will probably ust be spectating. It will still be an awesome turnout, and an awesome tourney.

Don't worry Birry, i think if i was any more relaxed in life i would be dead. :P

Saying it's "just networking" is as helpful as saying "getting better is just practice".
But there's "effective practice" versus "just practice", and Mobius you know that which is why you did your defense system thing.

Look just above these posts.. Mason is foaming at the mouth at the chance of $2000.
There are a lot of things different about this from what i can see..

Hope the chance to learn something isn't wasted is all.

DJ Reminise has a massive amount of connections. If I even knew half as many people as him we would be pulling significantly higher numbers.

We are focussing heavily on promotions this year anyway.

And some of you guys need to give us some credit. We don't look at things like that like "OH LULZ LOOK AT THAT OH WELL NVM". We actually DO take notice of things like this. I've already put the idea out to support the HF community if it really is this big. I will also be having a good conversation with Blade on the 16th about spreading the HF love.

Yes. There are a lot of things different. The potential $2000 pot is one of them. But the bar they're using obviously isn't charging them to hire it out, presumably because DJ Reminise has connections with them, since he plays there quite a lot. As such, they can afford a pot like this. They already own the setups they are using, and the Bar's TV's and sound system will be used.

Currently the stuff that will be provided at this tourney is costing us quite a lot. And not only that, since our tournaments are a lot more regular, we try to charge you guys less so that things across the year are more affordable.

Furthermore, its winner take all. We generally split our pots for the top 3. This is a move i stand by as well. I prefer the idea of having more prizes, but i definitely see having one amazing prize like that as something worth considering and i have suggested it on numerous occasions before, but its just not something we can afford to do, unless we start charging a hell of a lot more.

I get your concerns, but we have been through all of our options in terms of running our events, and what we are doing now, based on the size of the community is best for us at the moment. When the site gets 4000 members, you might start seeing a couple of hundred people at events. We might even start charging more so that we can have sick cash prizes. But its a little way down the NZism road yet.

And can we end this conversation here please. PM me anymore you want to discuss. I want to keep the ranbats thread tidy from this point. I derail a lot of threads myself, but in threads like this, it needs to stop.

While I'm here, are the Tekken players going to be coming again this week? If so I'm sure we can arrange a tekken setup that isn't on a laggy 50 inch TV. Need at least 4 of you guys to make it worthwhile though so please post here and let us know so we can arrange an extra monitor. Were you guys playing it on PS3 last time and do we need extra sticks?

I'll assume the BB:CS guys will also be attending and we can probably get HF going on an Xbox so you guys can get some practise in for the tournament the following week.

We got spot prizes, so come along. GET HYPE YO.

Sorry weazzy no freebies, only completely new people get to come for free! Can't really let you in for free but charge everyone else.

BTW guys, looking at running 4 to 5 setups this week, one BB:CS setup, a hyper fighting setup (so you guys can practice for the tournament on wednesday) and the rest SSF4. So please bring sticks. We got PS3 sticks covered but need xbox sticks.

We'll be running a BB:CS bracket as well, maybe even HF if the demand is there?

fuck it is hot at giga. where the fuck did the air con go. retarded.

thanks hook for running sf2 hf, julz for running some bb:cs, hydro for keeping an eye on the setups down the back. the help was definitely appreciated.

good to see some more new players around, hopefully we'll see you all again. Just remember no booze is allowed at Giga.

Also please don't jump on the casuals if you haven't been knocked out of the brackets, there is almost nothing more frustrating than calling your name out for a game then having to leave a setup unused while you finish your game. Running brackets for several games at the same time probably didn't help, don't think we'll be doing it again. Ben, hopefully you do well at this tournament on Wednesday :)

Next ranbats we'll be jamming MVC3 and SSF4, undecided whether we'll run a bracket for MVC3 on the first night.

you should go. Sol should do really well too.

Thanks for running the event again Rory. Nice work on getting the spreadsheet mostly automated!

Oh what the fuck Ben just go! I'm confident you'll do well, hell I'm keen to spar with you some more to get you prepared just hit me up when you want me on! Might even pop over to Redtie's place sometime so you can play against the both of us for training  ;D

Oh yeah and cheers Simon and Hook for the HF tips. Sad that no-one watched me and James' final for SSF4, so much stupid shit happened. I wanna see that Viper though man. I wasn't trying to call her out cause I'm confident I'll win cause I'm definitely not I just love high level viper.

Shot Mason for taking the #1 spot. Though it sucks to be second for the second ranbat in a row haha. Your Sakura is crispy awesome. I promise some scrubby Viper next time bro lol.

Shouts to everyone I played, especially brother Rumble & Mason, tense as matches. GGs hard.

Good to see Lenny too, and Rory/Hook you both did a great job on the organisation bros, I'm happy to help out more should you need it in the future. :D

I didnt record the top tier grand finals as I was busy having some casuals with Sol (damn u lol). GGs to Mike, James and Jack. A bit disappointed with how my execution was after reviewing my matches. I noticed I missed a hell of alot of shit. I guess at least its something I can work on.

Good to see the new guys, especially GadGong. Mean as Blanka!

I noticed I missed a hell of alot of shit. I guess at least its something I can work on.

Good to see the new guys, especially GadGong. Mean as Blanka!

Also thanks Lenny/Rory for the tz card.

Thank u bro, did i plyed wif u last nite tho? lol

Bro, cool meeting you Naki boys. I'm gonna come everyranbat if you's are gonna drink. Drinking is my no. 1 hobby haha. That's why i miss all the ranbats haha.

Bro, you need to sharpen up mate. 'G, we'll skull our drinks on 3 aight?' 1.2.3..........hahahahahahahah shame kung. I still finished it. Just finished it in turtle mode as i can't afford to spew my food lol.

Bro, the heat was making me feel really fucked ay. I just wanted to throw my game against jack after my marathon of games is was not healthy. I wanted to forfeit the final between me and Kevin in BB for the same reason. And he would of tottaly demolish me aswell. But felt i had to respect him and play. I feel sorry for him cos he's in his own tier rank in that game hahaaha.

Mason you keeeint, ben practicing ay. First game you won cos i was like wtf? you said you can't play cunt. Your like me know the meanest combo but don't know matchup. I'm just lucky Bang combo take way more haha.


Congrats on your win in ssf4 Mason. Sorry i played scrubby against you, was abit tips ay naamean. Fcuk your combo exhebition on me was awesome though lol.

How did i not get spot prize. Got wasted. Made top 4 in ssf4, made final in BB. Best masher in marvel. talked heaps of shit about gay HF. Made naki boy spew.  And still no prize. kefe.

Fuck am still drunk.

Wicked - with that in mind, does that mean you can make a bracket now ? or is that a no go until people are confirmed attending/entering ? I think I just answered this question for myself, so feel free to ignore it

Post by: Rorooze on February 15, 2011, 03:04:54 pm
You answered your own question :)

That's why we are doing prepayment for First Blood 2011 though, so we can write the brackets before the tournament starts which means we don't waste time paying for venue and setups while writing brackets up, we can just rock up at 11:30 and start playing. Also so we can gauge how many people are coming so we don't write up a 16 man bracket then have to swap to a 32 man bracket to accomodate 5 extra people (happened for BB:CS at Xmas damager).

MVC3 will be at the next ranbats, how we're going to run it is still under discussion. Info to come.

GGs tonight guys. Pretty happy with second in both games. Tbh I didn't have a shot against Lenny in marvel. Gotta level up before First Blood. Awesome random select scrubby battle with Josh, then later the Ryu U2 mirror. GGs for Jack for beating me twice.

Good ranbats, Lenny's troll team is gay (I can say that even with Sentinel on my team).

Big ups to the guys that brought their gear and do so EVERY week.  Much appreciated!

TommyHarmonic and Weyden? (The Naki dude that uses a pad) were recipients of the $10-00 Timezone cards!  Tommy for bringing his gear, and Naki dude for his sick MVC3 play!  His matches were really hype.

Keep practicing guys!  First Blood in 2 weeks.  Might organise something for next weekend on Friday for us all to have a jam.

GG's to all the boys.

I like SOL's team. I can respect that awesome team.

Shot for peacing me out with cool shit i didn't know Mason. I respect that. And i learned alot from you too. First time i learned something from someone at ranbats and not the internet.

Fuck Lenny and his shit fucking rage building team. But i can honestly respect that. Cos it's built from chars i woulda never picked in a million years. Someone shoulda honestly taped that. I wanted to see what i looked like when i was getting trolled out. Bet it was pretty funny.

edit: And Mason. How the fuck do you always drop Sent combo's?

And I need to learn to snapback in matchups like Lenny and Phoenix. Also need to learn to block stuff like Masons drones and X23 crossups and drones and Akuma's teleport. Which i stole straight after i saw you do it lol.. So basic yet i never thought of it. Going for stupid crossup tatsu's haha.

Dave keeeint. Why you playa hate the rats tail g. Was pullin me mint ass trim in town that night nucka. Wait till it's ninetails g, you'll be mad jelly beechy ass hoe neggaa. And your Guile's got reading glasses g. Niga gets NO PLAY!!!

Weazzy the Sent combos I was dropping were mostly anti air S combos which timing is usually very strict or impossible. I did drop some normal ones under level 3 xf as well but that's cause I was going for too many hits and since he's heaps faster you gotta adjust.

Also I don't think I used him outside of DHCs and assists the whole tournament except against Lenny and maybe Ben lol.

Flash is in his own world. He got too excited he got to play his PSN idol IRL. Try stay on topic ay homo.

That was a rhetoric question Mason. I know why you were dropping your combo's. It WAS cos you were going for too many hits. I could see you were at the right hight for combo's every time. It's probably cos you never get to use Sent haha. Fuck X23 is pretty crazzy.

Bill, what's that website for that tourney bracket?  Shit was cool.  I wanna look at it, see what else it can do, see if numbers matter (in terms of the games won, points thing), maybe it'll give some more cool stats/titles at the end of it.  Maybe next time, lol...

I don't know much about brackets. But i won 5 games in Marvel. Toots wins 3. I come fourth he comes third. I'm not complaining cos i had fun no matter what. But it looks corrupt to me. I mean is that how it's supposed to be?

there has to be byes because there isnt enough people to fill out the bracket. Then it just becomes a case of luck as to who gets byes and who has to play the first round

Post by: Nick4now on February 28, 2011, 12:36:44 pm
Exactly. The only way you're going to have a tourney with absolutely no byes is if you have a tourney with exactly only 2,4,8,16,32,64,128 etc.. players. You guys had 19 which means you guys had no choice but to use a 32 man bracket with 13 players having byes (and 6 players being unlucky lol).

EDIT: Alternatively you could do pools where everyone plays each other for points but that would take waaaay to long  ;D

Yeah it's all good. Usually the top seeds get a bye but because MVC3 isn't seeded at the moment then it was just luck of the draw.

I take it one mvc3 ranbats isn't enough to justify seeds for firstblood?

Not that I care, but helping out bill on ranbats got me interested in this bracket running stuff, willing to help out when you guys get swamped trying to monitor results of each setup, making sure each setup is ready to go etc.

Maybe I can even help get players ready just before a setup is finished so they can just jump on straight away.  Streamline that shit!

Cool, you can imbed the bracket result as a picture, but I guess it would take up too much space...

This bracket stuff is cool

Post by: Rorooze on February 28, 2011, 02:47:42 pm
How/if we seed MVC3 has yet to be decided. First Blood 2011 is going to be quite different to our previous tournaments, much more organised (hence why we wanted as many people as possible to prepay). We'll have 8 setups going at once, so we'll need a few people making sure rules are adhered to and the setups are always being used.

BTW guys, I've posted MVC3 results up and we'll be keeping track of points.

Well the ssf4 didn't get seeded. The guy's who won last ranbats and the damager were the ones who didn't get a bye lol.

i was talking to bill today at timezone, and was discussing how every 2 weeks we have ranbits, but the week where there is no ranbits we should organise something for that friday for SSF4 AE in timezone for like 2 hours that day where there is no ranbits with a small entry fee? like hire it out or something the 4 cabinets for 2 hours? just a cool idea cause every 2 weeks is a long wait and people can up there skill in AE too and get used to the nerfing in it, like a little ranbits there or something

peace

Im personally thinking about ways to make ranbats better atm, and I do appreciate the suggestions that you guys give me.

Its definitely an interesting idea.

We're gonna keep running things as they are for the time being though. We've all got a fair bit of shit on our plates atm. I might have a chat to Alan at timezone to see what the deal with something like this would be for them logistically next time im down there.

There are a lot of factors which would potentially make something like that not work as well for timezone, and I really dont want timezone to be out of pocket or anything. (Since they treat us pretty awesome down there)

Im gonna keep this idea in the tank for the future. I think there are some issues that need to be smoothed over before we can do anything with it though.

big thumbs up , fuck 2 hours is  not long at all its nothing they will make their cut off us cause we will pay a small fee each, so in return they should have a large sum, fun for us more money for them? so someone quickly give them the boot so we can get ssf4 AE ranbits on the go

Its not that simple.

Look, this is not going to happen any time soon. Its as simple as that. We like the idea, but implimenting it takes a lot more work than just telling timezone were gonna roll up on a Friday so they need to turn the machines on free play.

We need to work out what there average revenue is on a Friday night if thats when we want to do it. We want to discuss whether or not a different day would suit them. Their local management needs permission from general management before anything can go ahead. If we have a night with a bad turnout then timezone end up making a loss, which would discourage them from doing anything with us in the future. We need to figure out an appropriate price. It just requires a lot more resources on our part than it appears. These are ALL things that need to be discussed and confirmed before we can even THINK about doing something at Timezone.

You KNOW I like the idea, but we can't do it right now. Thats just how it is. Come back in a few months and it might be a lot more realistic. For now though, its a great idea that we will be looking into. Just don't expect anything to happen with it in the next few months AT LEAST.

There was mixed reviews honestly. A few of the guys were keen for some bracket action, but there were just as many if not more that preferred the casuals.

We're taking all this shit into consideration. Ranbats is gonna be getting a decent overhaul over the next few months. Gonna be some trial and error though, so people need to turn up and hit us with some feedback.

Gonna be some trial and error though, so people need to turn up and hit us with some feedback.

Yah that and people just need to turn up even.  Shit is getting weak :(

Is this a busy time of year for people?

What, so last night was just a casual grind session? Those are 10x more fun than the usual ranbat formats.

Post by: Lennysaurus on April 21, 2011, 10:25:48 am
So I just want to make some clarifications in this thread.

The idea to move our fortnightly session to Saturday is due to a couple of things.  Firstly the sad turnout we have been getting on Friday nights, and secondly due to a different rate we get for hiring monitors on Saturday afternoon.

Also to clarify, the Saturday sessions at this point will be "Grind Sessions", ie they will not be a tournament.  Basically a bunch of casual games where you get to play each other for the time that we have rented the monitors.  There will be some structure around it on the day so that everyone get's to play, and there are no console hogs, and also an opportunity for you to challenge particular people for certain matchups.  The focus will be much more on helping each other out , as opposed to an out and out tournament.

The idea is that we run this for one season, and then return to the Friday Night Ranbats as they have run previously in the later part of the year.  So in a way you could consider the Saturday Grind Sessions as great time to prep up ready for the Ranbats later in the year.

Of course none of this is set in stone.  If we find that this isn't working, we can always change it around again.

Since this won't be a "Ranbats" anymore, I will make a new thread and unsticky this one.  We can move the discussion there.
