The Venue:
Devry University
6600 Dumbarton Cr.
Fremont, CA

Ranbat Setup:



Parking Setup:
I have been informed that the parking officers do NOT issue citations on weekends. This means you are allowed to park outside the visitor parking lot.


New Addition to the Venue
We are adding Tekken 6 to the venue. We have extra setups and room for extra hype. If you beg to differ, then too bad. :kitty:

About Registration:
You will be asked to pay for the tournament, you’ll be playing in, before participating. You may be asking why I’m doing this and this is my answer, ‘Organization.’ If there’s one mistake I learnt from the tournaments I’ve hosted n’ attended - and read about - then it’s lack of organization. I will be giving the money, and the registered names, to those who will be hosting the tournament. Rest assured, I will take that fight money and rain it on you while saying, “HEY! THIS ISN’T A SCAM!”

Remember, upon entering the venue, I implore you to practice common sense! Don’t be a douchebag, don’t be a litter freak, vandalize property, steal equipment, and anything else that can constitute gambling. I don’t have the patience to deal with that crap and neither should you. So let’s have a nice clean fight. >:3

About Refreshments:
Refreshments will be provided as a compliment to the venue fee. The owner of Lab 17 is going out of his way to give us some snacks. Thank you!

Huge props to the following people:

  • OrionxElite

  • Ginseng
    Thank you for bringing refreshments. If you wish to join the cast of extraordinary gentlemen, or ladies, then bring something for us to munch on.

Tournament Entry: $5 Singles, $6 Doubles

According to PhaethonH,

Side Tournament Entry: $1 - $3
Here’s my rules on running, official, side tournaments:

  1. Setups being used, for the main events, must be finished prior to any side tourneys. The only exception is if there are unused stations being used for Jojo’s bizarre adventure or any other otaku fantasy (several people comes to mind >:3).
  2. You must have a minimum of 5 people entering the tournament; winner takes all.

Casual Stations:
Here’s the rules on running casual setups:

  1. Setups being used, for the main events, must be finished prior to casuals. End of story.
  2. If the tournaments are done, then you can grind those casuals till the chicken crows in the morning.

No Venue Fee:
[LEFT]As courtesy of a free venue location, you are responsible to CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF, NOT COME IN SMELLING LIKE A HOBO, AND NOT DO YOUR MORNING HYGENE! We are not your moms![/LEFT]

Notice to Those Who Arrive On-Time:
If you’re bringing a setup, then please try to show up, at least, 30 minutes prior the tournament time. Once you register, look for the person who is hosting the tournament. When they’ve, successfully, figured out the brackets, then the tournament will start.

Notice to Those Who Arrive Late:
We are going to be a stickler about starting on time. We’re going to be hosting two GGAC tourneys and MBAA on the same day; this excludes the side tournaments that are, likely, going to happen. I do not want to stay till midnight trying to finish up a double elimination bracket. Humans get hungry and have sadlifes. I understand that people stay up till 4am watching loli animu, or whatnot, but find the balls to contact me if you’re running late. I found it, rather, ridiculous that volunteers - from the community - busted their asses off to get the, free, venue prepped up on time…
[right]…only to discover that people showed up 3 hours late.[/right]

From now on, we will have monthly gathering EVERY first Saturday of the month. Since our first Revival session was a success, the next one will be a full on ranbat. WORD OF CAUTION TaoFTW will not be hosting this next tournament. Hence, I will empower you people, from the community, to create brackets, seeding, and organization. When that happens, I’ll empower you guys with bigger venues and host tournaments. Right on?

If you need carpooling, then be sure to post, and PM, your appointed drivers. Drivers are listed in Chapter 5

Last Minute Updates:
Alright guys. With the ranbat hype just a few days away, here’s some final pointers from TaoFTW and Ginseng:

  • We’re expecting 40 people, total, from the MBAA/GGAC community. I want someone to squeeze in an extra TV, plus laptops, for casual setups. If you have the power to bring any extra equipment, then I empower you to bring them! Post them here, on dustloop/meltybread, and I’ll make room for them. Even if we don’t use the TVs/PS2s, I would rather have a surplus of one - or two - TVs + ps2s just in case an accident happens.

  • Lots of people, with limited setups, means longer waiting time than usual. Bring a DS, PSP, and play shaq fu.

  • Do your personal hygiene before coming! I know this is self-explanatory, but nobody likes to take a wiff of heavy HOBO MAN JUICE! glances over at sprt juice

  • Last, but not least, have fun! This ranbat is, ultimately, about building new social networks within a competitive stronghold. I know half of the community, but have - yet - to hear from the rest of you flunkies. I have high expectations from you guys and you should expect the same from I.

Remember, I’m always open for constructive criticism.

I would like to attend for MBAA! I wanted to go to the April session, but forgot about it till that same night. Since this would be my first time attending, not sure what you guys might need, it’d be great to know if the hosters have any suggestions how we could help them. Knowing how busy putting together an event may be, I’d be more than happy to chip in somehow.

side note: I’ll be coming from SJ, and if people are lacking transportation, the offer is up.
