MTLSF’S UNDERGROUND HYPE XV (Ladies Night)
July 30, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 11:00 pm$10
MTLSF’S UNDERGROUND HYPE XV (Ladies Night)
We are back once more with our 15th tournament serie! For this next Underground Hype event, in the hopes of seeing more female players on the competitive scene, we are having a ladies night theme, where all ladies will have a free entry fee, meaning that it will only cost 5$ for the ladies to enter the tournament and receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize. Also, we are very proud to announce that the following three “MTLSF’s Underground Hype” events will be the official Canadian east coast’s seeding events for Canada Cup Gaming (See the “CCG Seeding” description below for more information). Take note that the tournament will start earlier than usual, it will start at 5pm so if you intend on being part of the tournament, please be sure to arrive before that time as there will be no registrations after that time. Once again, we are proud to have “Orange Maison” as a sponsor for our next event, which will provide free cans of “Base” energy drinks on this summer day to keep the hype going for the whole evening! As usual, there will be a interesting raffle prize to be won if you entered the tournament. Regarding the equipment, as our last events, we will have plenty of lagless monitors all around but are missing PS4 consoles. Anyone willing to bring a PS4 console to the event will receive a refund for their 5$ entry fee. If you think about bringing your PS4 to the event, please post your intention under the event or simply message one of the hosts in order to let them know what to expect so they can plan accordingly.
For those who already been at our last events or who have read the description of our previous events, the following is pretty much a copy-paste of the same description, however, be sure to check out the “CCG Seeding” section below for new information regarding the upcoming event.
Here is a resume of the main points of the evening:
-Ladies Night (Free entry for all ladies)
-Official CCG seeding event (1/3)
-5$ entry fee
-Open from 2pm to 11pm
-SFV main event starts at 5pm (5$ tournament fee – PS4 only)
-Hot-dogs available at 1.50$ each
-Free bottles of water
-Free cans of “Base” energy drinks (provided by “Orange Maison”)
-Raffles draw at 5pm
If you are new to this event, its objective is simply to bring the local FGC together where anyone is welcome to join (underage included). If you consider yourself a casual player, this event will give you the experience of participating in a casual tournament. Instead of fighting your regular friends or people you don’t know online, you will have the opportunity of fighting real local people, each with their own style and knowledge, who share the same hobby as you. Although it will revolve a lot around Street Fighter, if you play other fighting games, you are more than welcome since we will have several other fight games title available for casuals and you can also bring your own.
We are very proud to announce that the following three “MTLSF’s Underground Hype” events will be the official Canadian east coast’s seeding events for Canada Cup Gaming held in Toronto on October 27th-30th. This is something on the side that does not affect the regular progress of the tournament but only allows for a better seeding on the CCG bracket for the overall winners of the 3 upcoming events. For the following 3 events, there will be points associated to each final position in the tournament and a update will be made after each tournament with the addition of the points for all players who entered. After the 3 events, the top 2 players will be insured a proper seeding at CCG. After the first event, you can always view your points on the official MTLSF website at www.mtlsf.com.
The points will be distributed as following:
1st place = 150
2nd place = 125
3rd place = 115
4th place = 100
5th place (2) = 90
7th place (2) = 75
9th place (4) = 65
13th place (4) = 50
17th place (8) = 40
25th place (8) = 25
33rd place (16) = 15
49th place and higher = 10
Dualshock 4 pads, Converters and Legacy Controller Authentication
From the experience of past events, it seems as everyone got more familiar with the Legacy Controller Authentication which didn’t waste any time configuring and everyone had the reflex to check the paired controllers on the system before starting a tournament match, so we will still allow it at the next event. But please, before your match do not forget to unpair all devices that shouldn’t be there by going to Settings->Devices->Bluetooth Devices and select all of the DUALSHOCK 4 that are off and DELETE them.
Time, date and fees
The event will take place on Saturday July 30th and the place will be open from 2pm until 11pm. The casuals will start at 2pm and going until closure and the tournament for SFV will start at 5pm. An entry fee of 5$ will be charged per person to enter and an extra 5$ will be charged for the tournament entry if you wish to enter the tournament (explained in detail below) to help cover the expenses. Please note that the point of this event is not to make money, but to assemble the local Fighting Game Community together. As a matter of fact, once the expenses are covered, the extra money will go to the winners of the SFV tournament.
Main Tournament (SFV)
Other than the 5$ entry fee, an additional 5$ will be required if you wish to enter the tournament. The tournament will be for Street Fighter V and will be played on PS4 only. The tournament will be starting at 6pm and will be a double elimination style (Winners and Losers brackets). The tournament will be a best 2 out of 3 until the finals (Winners, Losers and Grand Finale), which will be a best 3 out of 5. The winning prizes will be the exceeding of profits over expenses made during the evening (100% entry fees + 100% SFV tournament fees – 100% minor expenses) and will be spread as following: 1st – 55%, 2nd – 30% and 3rd – 15%.
The local itself is situated at the main floor of a condominium and is usually used for war veterans meetings, so we only ask of you to treat it respectfully. The local was the best location I could find for the relation quality/price and will allow a bigger pot for the winner of the tournament. It can hold around 60 persons, so we would greatly appreciate if you could click the “Going” button under the event if you are serious about coming to help us keep track of the number of participants. The local is situated at 4885 Boulevard Henri-Bourassa West (corner Henri-Bourassa and Marcel Laurin), and is located at the BACK of the building. The entrance is easily identifiable with the big maple leafs stickers on the door and the mention LEGION written.
If you come by car, there is a train station right in front of the local which you can use for parking. I discussed this point with the owner of the local in order to not have any problems with towing since the parking spot is for the users of the train, but he assured me that there should be no such problems. He always refer to that parking spot for people who are using this local and had no problems in the past since there is nobody present on place nor cameras that verifies if you truly are a customer for the train. So as for the parking spot, it is only a suggestion and is at your own discretion. Note that if you park your car there, it will be easily visible from the local itself. The train station parking mentioned is the second entrance on your right, just after you passed Henri-Bourassa while going on Marcel-Laurin north, and not the first one, which is reserved for residents with a pass.
If you come by either metro or bus, I suggest you to use the STM website and the “Itinéraire” tab which will allow you to enter your address and the local’s address and will propose you different travel options which you can then choose the most convenient one for you. If you managed to come by public transportation and are willing to tag along until closing time (around 11h30pm), it will be my pleasure to drop you off afterwards to the metro or even home depending on where you live.
