Vite Ramen is generously supporting this tournament, which allows us to make registration free while offering a prize pool of at least $350 cash and product prizes. We plan to break down the prizing as follows, but may adjust if our prize pool grows:
1st place: $170, 9 packs of ramen, bowl, spoon, chopsticks
2nd place: $90, 6 packs of ramen, spoon, chopsticks
3rd/4th place: $45, 3 packs of ramen, spoon
We're still looking for more sponsors. If you're interested, please contact us on Discord or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We plan to again have a Swiss phase which feeds into a single-elimination playoff bracket.
We may adjust our format depending on how many players register. The final format and rule set will be announced at least one week prior to the tournament. We're happy to incorporate feedback and will be using the Discord server to keep players up-to-date as we make final rule decisions.
We aim to choose a format that is fun for all players yet competitive and fair. We encourage players of all skill levels to compete!
We will once again play from Gunrock Gaming in Davis, CA on the UC Davis campus. We recommend parking in the nearby North Entry Parking Structure. All non-meter parking will be free for the day (only the spots closest to the entrance are metered).
Gunrock Gaming has an entry on Google Maps with its exact coordinates. The address is 1 Shields Ave, Davis, CA 95616.
- The center has 27 powerful gaming PCs with 240hz monitors (click for more specs).
- Bring your own headphones as the center has a limited amount to rent.
- You may bring a keyboard and/or mouse but only if they are plug-and-play (i.e. do not require driver installation). You will not be able to install drivers or any other software.
- No outside computers will be permitted, and gaming PCs can only be used by tournament participants.
We created a Discord server to help coordinate a regional StarCraft scene in Northern California. If you're interested in being a part of that scene, we'd love for you to join: https://discord.norcalstarcraft.com
You can contact the organizers of this tournament (Tiki and Nigel) in the above Discord, or via email at email@example.com.
