DEVASTATION announces ranbats at MvC3 event

15 02 2011

The DEVASTATION midnight release party for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds went well received Monday night. Dozens of gamers showed up in attendance for the chance to play the game a few hours before release and win some swag from challenges.

The actual drop of the game however, wasn’t the only cool part of the event, as the DEVASTATION crew took the moment to announce something else as well.

Robb Chiarini, coordinator of the DEVASTATION event, and his team for the tournament passed out flyers and officially announced their Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ranking battles for the state.

Ranking battles, commonly known as ranbats, are a series of small competitions where players get points based on how well they finish in each tournament. Those points are then tallied up to crown the highest ranking player in that particular game, in this case Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Both the flyers and a DEVASTATION post detailed the schedule of the ranbats for the season. The tournaments are mostly bi-weekly and will be held on April 17, May 1, May 15, June 12, June 26, July 10, July 24, and August 7.

The cost to enter a ranbat will be $1 and the entire pot will go to the highest ranking players at the end of the season.

The competitions are slated to occur at 12 p.m. each designated day at LAN Speed Games, located at 6750 W. Peoria, which generally hosts PC and PS3 gaming on a daily basis.
