    Yes it's really happening!! Another PATS tournament! Last tournament was a huge success, with 45 singles entrants and 19 teams. The videos are all here. Let's make this one even better!!​
    Venue
    6025 Westheimer Road
    Houston, TX 77057
    We will have an entire rather large room to ourselves, plenty of onsite parking, and NO VENUE FEE (keep in mind that the venue is free under the assumption that some people who attend the tournament will buy food/drinks here, so eating here is highly encouraged. The food is great, I highly recommend their queso.)
    Doors open at 12:00, and tournament registration will end at 1:30, SO GET THERE BEFORE 1:30. The tournament will then start as soon as brackets are made. If you are running a little late, give me a call at 713 702 6028 and I will register you if you are reasonably close.

    Tournament Rules
    • The number of stock is set to 4
    • The time limit is set to 8 minutes
    • Pause is set to off
    • In the event of a dispute, controller ports will be selected by Rock-Paper-Scissors
    • Double Elimination
    • All sets are best of 3, except semi-finals and finals rounds (in winners and losers), and losers quarters, which are best of 5
    • FOR BEST OF 5 MATCHES- Dave's stupid rule: A player cannot counter pick a stage they have previously won on in a set. However, there are no bans. (there are bans for best of 3 matches)
    • Blind Picks: the first character selection of a set must be without prior knowledge of the opponent's character selection for both players.
    • Timed out matches will be determined by the remaining number of lives, then percentage of the current stock. In the event of a stock and percentage tie, a one-stock match will be played.
    • Wobbling is allowed except when used to excessively stall a match
    Stage List
    Singles:
    Yoshi's Story
    Fountain of Dreams
    Final Destination
    Dreamland
    Battlefield
    Counter Picks: Pokemon Stadium

    Doubles:
    Yoshi's Story
    Pokemon Stadium
    Final Destination
    Dreamland
    Battlefield
    Counter Picks: Kongo Jungle 64

    Entry Fee
    Singles: 10
    Double: 5 (each)
    NO VENUE FEE!!! (this means EAT AT THE VENUE)



    If anyone from out of city/state needs a place to stay, just post, there are plenty of Houston players willing to house people. Bring setups! Eat at the venue! NO LATE ENTRIES, SO SHOW UP ON TIME, DOORS OPEN AT 12:00, REGISTRATION ENDS AT 1:30. Let me know if I left anything out!

    Me, Dreoh, JGR, and Sincuroo will definitely show up. Any chance of also running a PM tourney if we can get set-ups?

    Possibly, time is the main issue right now. I'll see if I can find time for it, I'll get back to you on that.

    Remember to bring some extra pairs of thick denim for when I arrive, when we play youre going to need at least 4 pairs of jeans on to hold up whats gonna come down, and a fifth to clean up your butt afterwards. And all thats just for when I beat you once. So youd better get started on telling your mom that she needs to buy you 10 pairs of jeans (2-0) or you can forget about eating at the venue.

    Actually, with the way he posts, that wouldn't surprise me. If it is Mouf, then nevermind about the MM. lol

    I can also vouch for the venues food. They're god damn good

    Also, if we can bring part of a full setup should we bring it?

    There's a chance. I need to think of the most time efficient way to run everything so we don't run late, but I'll definitely try to squeeze it in. I'll keep you posted.

    Please do. This goes for everyone, please bring a setup (or whatever part of it) if you can, setups keep the tournament moving.

    Thank you. If there is Project M, then I'll definitely come with a dedicated setup and enter Melee as well. This venue has great food by the way, to anyone who's never been.

    So how about that Project M? I'd be willing to run the brackets if that would help.
    Side note: I'm ready to start moving up in Melee.

    Any higher level Captain Falcon players going to attend this? I just got back to playing this after years of not playing so I'd love to play Friendlies with you guys to learn some stuff

    Zhea plays C. Falcon. Strawhat might also make an appearance if P:M is there. I'm sure there will be plenty of others willing to help you learn some things after taking a hiatus.

    I don't think PM will be at this one, I think this tournament will be too big to run four events at. I hope you still come though! Who knows, maybe this time we'll randomly finish early and might be able to at least run PM singles. No guarantees though.
