WHAT: An offline tournament scene is finally going to start in Texas! The event will include Playstation Allstars Battle Royale and Super Smash Bros. Brawl (which, already has a scene...) as the games played. There will also be Pokemon at the event as well. A stream may be set up so people online can watch the allstars tournament events. I will be running this along with xyro77 from the Smash community. As these go on they will only get bigger, but even if we start off small, we will make this as hyped as possible!
WHERE: Texadelphia 6025 Westheimer Road Houston, Texas 77057
This place is a restaurant that serves food such as chicken strips, hot wings, quesadillas, various types of sandwiches, etc. along with drinks and such so the food will already be there available for you. Website link at the bottom of this message.
WHEN: February 8th, 2014-A saturday, get here by 10 am as we will start early
BRING SETUPS!!! This includes Tvs, ps3s/wiis with cables, and controllers. People who bring setups will be able to get in the venue for free and bringing setups for both games allows you to enter one of the low tier tournaments for free as well!
Venue fee: $5
1v1 tournament entrance fee (both games): $10
2v2 tournament fee (both games): $10 each person
Offline side event (Most likely low tier tournament for allstars/both games) $5, but will only be held if enough setups are brought along to make the singles/doubles go fast enough to have the event. Low tier will consist of Toro, Jak, Radec, Sir Dan, and Spike.
Pokemon X/Y-free, just bring a 3DS with a copy of the game

A pokemon side event can be played for free at the tournament. The games are Pokemon X and Y 6v6 format standard smogon OU. If you want to do this, bring a 3DS with a copy of Pokemon and feel free to play it there.
1. BYOC and USB Wire(Bring your own controller): Players are expected to bring their own controller and USB wire and be prepared for every tournament set. A USB wire (the one that normally charges your controller) is needed to connect your PS3 controller to a PS3. Please bring your own wire to save lots of time.
2. In the event pause is left on accidentally and is pressed, immediately call over the TO. Based upon their judgement, the situation will be resolved.
3. Players who use the PS3 controller or fight stick must turn it off when not playing. If the PS3 controller or fight stick is still synced up to a PS3, you could unintentionally disrupt a match. If problems persist, a DQ may happen.
4. For the purposes of simplicity, please do not use a PlayStation Vita.
5. You are responsible for your own controller. Any malfunctions or errors that occur are your responsibility (including battery issues with a PS3 controller), so bring an extra controller if possible and always check to make sure you're using the correct settings BEFORE a match is played. If a match has started and the game needs to be paused to adjust controls, pause to change controls ONLY if the opponent is not comboing, and you have alerted your opponent that you must pause. Both players must agree with each other when to unpause the game.
6. Intentional forfeiting, match fixing, and any other forms of bracket manipulation are not allowed and punishable by the TO.
7. No substitutions are allowed for singles or doubles.
8. DQ Rule: Arriving too late for a match will result in a DQ. Player(s) will have 10 minutes to show up before a loss of the set. For doubles, both players on a team need to be present in order to play.
9. The tournament organizer has the right to save/record any tournament match if possible and has the right to upload said match.
10. Disrupting your opponent physically or intending to disrupt their play (through something such as screaming in a player's ear) will result in a warning. Repeated action will result in disqualification from the tournament and possibly ejection from the venue. Observers who physically disrupt players are to be dealt with as the Tournament Organizer sees fit. Disqualification is recommended if possible, and ejection from the venue is also a punishment.
The venue itself serves all kinds of food which you can check out on the website below the links section of the thread.
