STAGE SELECTION / STRIKING PROCESS:
Players each strike one stage (flip a coin to see who strikes first if necessary), the remaining of the 3 stages is the stage that game 1 is played on.
Winning player bans a stage from the full list (neutral and CP). Losing player chooses stage. Winning player picks character. Losing player picks character.
(repeat steps from Game 2 if there is a Game 3)
VENUE FEE/STATION RESERVATIONS:
If you want to waive the $5 venue fee and help out STLBarWarz please register to reserve a station for your setup. Set-ups must include both a console and a screen. During tournaments STLBarWarz reserves the right to ask you to set your station to a particular game, however you may otherwise play whatever you'd like at your set-up. We may also be preferential to those who bring ASUS or other low-lag monitors vs. monitors which have noticeable lag. If you reserve a station in advance you have until the first tournament starts to get it set up or your space may be used by someone else.
For those who bring a set-up without a reservation you will be allowed to set-up on a first come first serve basis until all the spots are filled. We will also waive your venue fee. (Note: If you and a friend come up and one brings a console and the other a screen, only one person can claim that setup. The other must still pay).
