5 01 2012

If you couldn’t make the boot camp at Arcade-in-a-Box don’t worry, there is another opportunity with Team Hazmat to build up your skills.

The team is hosting their official “Hazbat tournaments” a.k.a. ranbats (ranking battles), starting off this Saturday the 7th at their hangout in Laveen.

Team Hazmat has officially announced they will be hosting a season of ranbats for both Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 ver. and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on every other Saturday for the first three months of the year. The schedule for them is as follows:

-January 7 

-January 21st

-February 4th 

-February 18th 

-March 3rd

Every ranbat will kick off officially at 2:00 p.m. for casual play and sign-ups, with SSFIV: AE 2012 battles starting at 4 p.m. and UMvC3 following at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome to enter, with a $5 venue fee and $5 entry fee per tournament. The entry fees will be split into a grand winners pot and a tournament pot, so if you win on any given night, you will also be awarded a pot prize as well as points.

Ranking battles is of course about building up your skills, so the team will award points to 1st through 8th places in each tournament every ranbat. First place will be awarded seven points, second gets five points, third gets three points, fourth gets two points, and fifth through eighth placers receive one point apiece.

At the end of the season, all the points will be totaled up to see which participant ranked the highest, not only to crown the best of the best, but also to award the ranbat grand winner pot.

The ranbats will also be streamed on Team Hazmat’s official channel. For more details, please visit their official event page.
