ALBERTA BEATDOWN 2
IMPORTANT - NOTICE THE LOCATION AND TIME CHANGES!
We have an announcement to make about Alberta Beatdown 2 on June 25th.
Due to unforeseen and uncontrollable delays in construction at OverKlocked the venue will not be ready in time for Alberta Beatdown. OverKlocked & Edmonton Gamers have been hard at work looking for an intermediary solution to make Alberta Beatdown 2 possible! and we have Found it! We will be hosting the Event at the Ramada across the street from OverKlocked in their "Ridgewood" room.
Due to the network infrastructure at the Ramada, we don't feel confident that we would be able to run a SC2 tournament to the standards we want to apply. Therefore we have decided to move the SC2 portion of Alberta Beatdown 2 to July 23rd at OverKlocked.
We are extremely sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and we want to make up for it, so here are some things we are going to do for you!
1. We are going to cut the venue fee in half for both events! The Alberta Beatdown 2 Venue fee will only be $5 as well as the SC2 tournament July 23rd.
2. For Alberta Beatdown 2 OverKlocked will be giving away 4 Fightsticks during the event!
3. For the Starcraft 2 Event July 23rd OverKlocked will be giving SteelSeries professional Gaming Equipment including:
SteelSeries 7G Gaming Keyboard
SteelSeries Ikari Laser Gaming Mouse
SteelSeries 9HD Mouse Pads
SteelSeries Siberia v2 Headset
4. OverKlocked and Edmonton Gamers will also be providing other prizes to be given away during both events
5. As an extra thank you for all the support from the Gaming Community OverKlocked will be bringing in free pizza for everyone at both events. So make sure you stick around for the whole tournament, play some casuals and have a great time!
Stay posted for more information on the SC2 Tournament, which will be coming out in the next week.

The people from EdmontonGamers, are putting together a multi game tournament called Alberta Beatdown 2 and smash is going to be included!
- Location: 11834 Kingsway Northwest Edmonton AB - Ridgewood room on the 2nd floor
- A mandatory $10 door fee. This is a business we are using, so it needs to make money! Plus the lay out for this venue is pretty amazing. All the setups we need are practically given to us. Well worth the $10 in my opinion.
- $10 for singles, and $10 per person for doubles. SINGLES WILL HAVE A $200 STARTER POT DONATED BY EDMONTONGAMERS
- The flyer says we will be dividing the pot 60/30/10, but I propose we split it up how we see fit. Personally I think distributing the pot to the 5th places would be fair. These are details that can be sorted out in this thread.
For this tournament, I have decided to use the BBR-RC unity ruleset. This ruleset definitely deviates from what AB is used to, but I think it attracts more people than it drives away. This is also the ruleset major tournaments will be using, so it's a good idea for everyone to get used to.
Here is the link to the thread: Unity Ruleset 1.3
For Melee, we will just be using the MBR recommended rule set: http://www.smashboards.com/showthread.php?t=257229

Interest/Attendance List(This includes both melee and brawl players. Don't expect all of these people to enter both games):
* means interested
I will try to keep this up to date as much as possible.
Overall my hopes for this tournament is to have everyone from AB who can possibly attend... Attend. I also would very much like to see this turn into some sort of semi-Canadian national tournament. Hopefully the debate over who is better (EC or WC) can come to an end with this. If not, then let the hype continue to grow.
