There will be a Norcal vs Socal 5on5 exhibition for SSF4 taking place at both SCR and NCR. SCR will take place first on Nov 6th weekend. SoCal Regionals
The winning side will take home a championship trophy that will be up for grabs again at NCR 2 weeks later on Nov 20th weekend. NorCal Regionals
Like a returning championship belt, this will hopefully be the first of many more events where the trophy is up for grabs.
I will be overseeing the Norcal team selection for both events. I’ll post up later separately regarding NCR selection. This thread is specifically for the SCR event.
The team quals for SCR will now take place in at Hiro’s pad in East Bay on Mon night Nov 1st. If you are attending SCR and trying out for Norcal team, PM me for address and to confirm your attendance. If you do not PM me and confirm by Saturday Oct 30th, you will not be allowed to join.
Format is round robin 2of3 game sets. Character lock in effect. Maximum of 20 players can enter. Ricky Ortiz is now given auto spot. So top 4 will earn the right to be on the team. Cost is $2 to enter, all of the pot goes to the house for hosting the event.
NCR Quals will be held at the NCR venue on Friday night, Nov 19th. I’ll follow up with details after SCR.
There will be no financial gain from qualifying on the team. I’m leaning towards making it $1 entry with all the proceeds going to the venue. So hopefully this eliminates any funny business. Just good fun and Norcal pride.
Dizz and anybody else: As noted, I won’t register you unless you are going 100% and want to try out.
Note that due to popular request, the quals may be held at the Keystone event at San Jose Bar and Grill this Saturday the 23rd. It appears most of the team hopefuls will be attending that event. I spoke to Albert and received his blessing to host the qualifiers there. With the competitors present and plenty of setups to use, this should be a great opportunity to run it.
