Big Tournament Returns!

24 04 2012

After our week of downtime we return with massive news regarding big tournaments and plans for the next upcoming weeks.

Courtesy League of Legends.

The much hyped LAN Speed Games League of Legends tournament takes place this weekend, as well as a new ranbats announcement fresh delivered from Team Hazmat.

LAN Speed Games will play host to their LoL tournament on Sunday, where the prize pot nets the winning team $500. The tournament is set at a 16  (five-man) team cap and an entry fee of $20 per a person. There are still reportedly a few spots left for individuals to get in on some incomplete teams before the competition officially kicks off at 2 p.m. that day. For more info and to sign up, head over to the LSG event page.

The local boys Team Hazmat officially announced on Monday the start of their second season of “hazbats” will take place this weekend on Saturday. The new season will include ranked battles in multiple games including King of Fighters XIII, Street Fighter X Tekken, Soul Calibur V, Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (2012 ver.), and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

The team plans to hold ranbats on April 28th, May 12th, May 19th, June 2nd, and June 16th at their hangout in Laveen. The schedule and tournament specifics are as follows:

King of Fighters XIII ($5 entry) 1-2:30 p.m.

Soul Calibur V ($5 entry) 2:30-4 p.m.

Street Fighter X Tekken [Teams] ($5 entry) 4-5:30 p.m.

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition 2012 ver. ($10 entry) 5:30-7 p.m.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 ($5 entry) 7-8:30 p.m.

There will also be a venue fee for all participants. The team plans to stream only the winners bracket action for each tournament and has a specific breakdown for the divvying of points and prize pots.

The top three placements in any given game tournament will get a 60/30/10 split of the competition pot, while the top three ranked players at the end of the night will win the overall ranbat pot (25% taken from each entry fee for each specific tournament is contributed to this throughout the night) with a 60/30/10 split. For all the details, please visit the Hazbat event page.


It looks like the DEVASTATION crew will run another tournament at Centerfolds Cabaret on Sunday, but this time with Street Fighter x Tekken and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the bill.

Registration is set to begin at 4 p.m. with no entry fees and each bracket will be capped at 64 players. The winners will apparently get a $50 Best Buy gift card. For more information, check out their official event page.
