Insomnia is now hosting ranbats for seven different games! These are weekly tournaments designed to LEVEL UP your game and get you used to tournament action! Casuals are great, but nothing can replace the experience which comes from dealing with pressure and the need to read your opponent quickly and adapt.
Read below for all details and feel free to hit us up if you have any questions, suggestions or otherwise!
Entry Fees // Prizes
FEES $5.00 (venue fee) $1.00 (each tournament) PRIZES Insomnia will match the $1 for each entrant and add this into the season's prize pool. There will also be pot bonus amounts added by Insomnia if we hit certain participation goals: Guilty Gear // 120 players over 8 weeks // $100 pot bonus Ultra // 200 players over 8 weeks // $150 pot bonus Mortal Kombat // 200 players over 8 weeks // $150 pot bonus Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 // 100 players over 8 weeks // $100 pot bonus Smash Bonus tbd but likely $100 for Melee/PM with 120 // $150 for Smash 4 with 200
Players are awarded points as follows: 1st = 20 pts, 2nd = 15 pts, 3rd = 10 pts, 4th = 7 pts, 5th = 5 pts, 7th = 3 pts, 9th place and beyond will each receive 1 pt.
At the end of the season, points will be tallied for top 3 with the bottom two scores dropped (this allows for poor performance or absence). 1st place = 50% 2nd place = 25% 3rd place = 15% *Random = 10%
*Of the remaining competitors (4th place and beyond) who have participated in at least 2 ranbats, we will hold a weighted lotto where the number of entries you have is determined by the amount of points you have earned. This means that you have a better chance of winning if you performed well, but everyone has an opportunity to win!
Start times: Mortal Kombat X/Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (8:30pm), Ultra Street Fighter IV/Guilty Gear Xrd (8:30pm), Super Smash Bros. 4 (8:00pm), Melee/PM (7:30pm/8:30pm, respectively). We'll take no phone or advance sign ups. Whoever is in the building at start time is who we're rolling with!
