So following the thread I created to gauge interest on a Giant Bomb community event for Anarchy Reigns, I've decided to follow through and host a tournament. It'll take place on **Sunday, January 13th****at 4****:00 PM EST / 1:00 PM PST** (unless many have any objections). I actually don't know a lot of the finer details because I'm not *that* knowledgeable about the game yet, but regardless:

## Rules

The tournament will be divided into **3 phases**. Phase 1 will be Battle Royale, Phase 2 will be Death Match and Phase 3 will be Cage Match. The default settings for these modes will be kept and nothing's being banned (so all abilities, characters and stages are allowed). Assuming the maximum number of players **for the PS3 version** of the tourney show up:

### PS3 Tournament Rules:

## Phase 1 - Battle Royale [19 players]

The 25 players will be separated into three groups of 8 players. These three groups will then engage in a standard 10 min. Battle Royale. At the end, **the bottom 1 scoring players of each group will be eliminated** and will not proceed to Phase 2. If a group loses track of who the bottom 1 scoring players were at the very end, they'll have to engage in another Battle Royale match.

## Phase 2 - Death Match [16 players]

The 16 remaining players will be separated into four groups of 4 people each to engage in a standard 5 min. Death Match. There will be **3 rounds of these Death Matches with the same groups and with a point system being used for the end of each round** according to the final scores**:**

- 1st place gets 7 points.
- 2nd place gets 5 points.
- 3rd place gets 3 points.
- 4th place gets 0 points.

The single top scoring player for each group at the end of the 3 Death Match rounds will proceed to Phase 3. If a player forgets how many points they got at the end of a round, they'll just get 0 points.

## Phase 3 - Cage Match [4 players]

The 4 remaining players will engage in Cage Matches in a standard, single elimination bracket. It will be a best of 3 rounds for a set, with the loser eliminated from the tournament. **Only the loser of a round will be allowed to switch characters, with the winner forced to play with the same one.**

**Xbox 360 Tournament Rules:**

## Phase 1 - Battle Royale [6 players]

The 8 players will face each other in a standard, 10 min. Battle Royale. **Because no one will be eliminated in Phase 1, points will be earned according to final positions:**

- 1st place gets 8 points.
- 2nd place gets 7 points.
- 3rd place gets 6 points.
- ...
- 8th place gets 1 point.

**Keep track of the number of points you get so that you may accumulate the amount you've earned in Phase 1 and 2.** If you forget the number of points you've earned in the Battle Royale, you'll be given 0 points.

## Phase 2 - Death Match [6 players]

The 8 players will be separated into two groups of 3 people each to engage in a standard 5 min. Death Match. There will be **3 rounds of these Death Matches with the same groups and with a point system being used for the end of each round** according to the final scores**:**

- 1st place gets 7 points.
- 2nd place gets 5 points.
- 3rd place gets 3 points.
- 4th place gets 0 points.

The two top scoring players for each group at the end of the 3 Death Match rounds will proceed to Phase 3. If a player forgets how many points they got at the end of a round, they'll just get 0 points.

## Phase 3 - Cage Match [4 players]

The 4 remaining players will engage in Cage Matches in a standard, single elimination bracket. It will be a best of 3 rounds for a set, with the loser eliminated from the tournament. **Only the loser of a round will be allowed to switch characters, with the winner forced to play with the same one.**

### Additional rule: I'll pretty much disqualify anyone who isn't over at http://giantbombing.com/chat/ in the #GB_AR channel at the time the tournament starts.
