Additional info / FAQ :
Alcohol? We’ll try to get a license for the day.
This tournament is held in Canada, therefore, if you are not Canadian, you will need a passport to enter the country. Look into ASAP if you are interested, these can take a while to get done. You might want to bring Canadian money, but you can alternatively just go to an ATM over here, or pay with your card.
Also, when travelling to another country, your cellphones/smartphones enter roaming and additionnal charges will be applied for anything you do with them. Best idea is to turn off your data and we’ll see what we can do about the wifi at the venue.
Will I be OK if I don’t speak French? Yes, lots of people in Montreal don’t even speak French.
The event is only one day, why? On weekdays, our venue, MVA, is only open on evenings. The Friday teams are just our regular monthly. All main tournaments will be on Saturday.
Will I need to bring a jacket? No it’s actually warm here in the summer.
Are you working on a group rate for a hotel? No, but the venue is very close to downtown where there are a lot of hotels and hostels, and it’s easy to get to the venue by public transit. If you’re on a tight budget try asking if anyone wants to offer a place to crash, you never know.
How is the parking around MVA? You can park on the streets around the venue for free generally, just make sure to read the parking signs.
How do I get to MVA from the airport? There’s a 24/7 bus that passes often (http://www.stm.info/en/info/networks/bus/shuttle/line-747-east/60997), it goes from the airport to downtown, from which it’s only 3 stops away on the subway. Costs 8$ and generally offers free wifi.
When’s Marvel? No cab in the back this year, sorry.
Anything I need to know about driving in Montreal? Flashing green light means you have priority. You can’t turn right on red lights, tie your seatbelt, speed limits are in KM/h so learn the equivalences, beware of potholes, avoid the giant orange cones, and don’t drink and drive.
Can I help? Sure! We’ll need people to run the pools, check the door, and bring equipment. You can also help just by spreading the word so as much people as possible make it to this!
Why should I come?
note : the day of this tournament is our national holiday, Canada Day. Many government services will be closed, but restaurants and such should be open. Also, people here aren’t always super patriotic towards Canada, so it’s kind of turned into a sort of moving day for this city.
Rules : 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches, loser can switch character, winners/losers/grand finals are 3/5 matches, 70/20/10, no unlimited/gold/etc... the usual rules. +R Macro rules same as Big E tournaments : specify character choice, then ask the other player if macros are ok.
