SORRY GUYS IT'S THE 17TH MY MISTAKE!!!!
Some of you guys have played in the Sep. 1 Thursday Night Throwdown that featured 3rd Strike Online Edition. Are you good enough to win something against others? Come on down and participate in the first in a monthly community tournament series!
The tournament will begin on Saturday, September 17th. Ready time will initiate at 10:00 AM and the tournament will begin at 11:00 AM. (Pacific Standard Time, UTC -8:00). If you miss the cutoff time for your match (see below Rules: Connection), you are then automatically forfeiting your match and possibly disqualified later.
Every player in each bracket will be invite requested by the tournament organizer (The Phantomnaut on Xbox 360 and Scarace360 on PlayStation 3).
First place winners as of now will receive a prize courtesy of Vito_Raliffe. They have the choice to pick what's currently available in his Game Giveaway thread or a redeemable code for 1600 Microsoft Points or a $20 off in the PlayStation Network (depending on console winner, US winners for the XBL and PSN codes only). They will be PMed instructions a couple of days afterwards on how to receive their prize.
Currently, there will be no stream but if anybody can, please help assist in recording the matches! I will be talking to Raikanami of FinestKO ASAP to aid me in streaming if possible.
This tournament will be for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Everyone above 10 forum posts here are welcome to compete for free. So reply below with your XBL Gamertag or PSN username. The tournament player count is capped at 16 players per console BUT if there is demand, I will increase to 32! No replacement players for absentees sorry!
Sign-ups will end on September 16th at 12:00 AM PST. On the 16th, I will create the bracket on Challonge and everyone of you guys must read to know who are you gonna fight.
Recommended: Open the necessary ports for PSN or XBL if you have a router.
Xbox Live players will be sent a friend request by WMFightClub on September 16 and invites on tournament day will be by me!
For the PSN side, Scarace360 will be sending you guys requests on the same day as well. Stay tuned for more info!
