We’re now in the home stretch of Michigan Ranking Battles Season 3; only two more tournament to go! Now is the time for everyone to step up their game and reach for the top 6!!!
The final tournament for season 3 will be held in East Lansing on March 27th. This is your last chance to improve your rank, so don’t miss it!
Then…Michigan Masters 2
I talked to the Power Up TO’s and they said it would be good if I put together our 5v5 team for that tournament. The top 5 players in the Michgan Masters Exhibition will make up the team. If we have character duplicates in the top 5 we’ll figure it out at that time.
Welcome to MI Ranbat Season 3!

Rules and Money:
Each game costs $5 to enter at each tournament. The $5 goes straight into the prize pool for that game. There is also a $3 venue fee at each tournament, that goes to the venue. On top of that, there is an additional $2 that goes into the prize pool for the next Michigan Masters Exhibition Tournament. You can get $5 waived if you bring a console/hard drive/ help run the tournament/ you are Wolfkrone, Kenta or Haiguy (last season’s winners). Make sure to PM me about any of this. Don’t just assume you can get it waived.
That means entering one tournament costs $10, two tournaments costs $15, and all 3 will run you $20.
SF4 Singles will be seeded according to ranking. The other tournaments will be seeded randomly.
Teams will either be 2v2 or 3v3 depending on the turnout. Winner stays to play the other team’s next player.
If 5 or less people enter a tournament, it will be round robin. If 6 or more enter it will be double elimination.
The prizes are split 70/20/10 if 7 or more players are in the tournament. If 6 or less are in the tournament, 2nd place gets their $5 back and first place gets the rest.
We’re trying PS3s at the next tournament, but usually the games will all be played on Xbox 360. We’ll see how the ps3s work out before deciding on future events. Make sure to check back for updates. Please bring controllers if you have them, but if you don’t someone will lend you one for your matches.
SF4 will be 2/3 rounds, 2/3 games. If you win a game you have to keep your character for the next one, but the loser may counter pick. Tekken 6 is 3/5 rounds, 2/3 games.
No pausing and no button macros (3p and 3k style configs are allowed). No turbo (thanks Rhino).
Street Fighter is the only ranked game this season. The turnout for other games has been too inconsistent to bother. If you would like to run rankings for a game yourself, let me know and I will be happy to accept your help.
Points are awarded according to your placing in the singles tournament.
1st - 8 points
2nd - 5 points
3rd - 4 points
4th - 3 points
5th - 2 points
7th - 1 point
The rankings will be updated every tournament. The top 6 players at the end of the season will be automatically invited to the Exhibition Tournament at Michigan Masters 2 (date yet to be determined.) The winner of the Exhibition Tournament will receive a large cash prize (several hundred dollars) plus $5 off at every tournament in season 4.
I think that’s about it. I’ll be updating this thread regularly with new tournament info, and the rankings. Tell all your friends!
