Winnipeg’s Namco and 3D fighter fans are in for a treat with next month’s release of the highly anticipated fighter Soul Calibur 5. With that in mind, Chip Damage is proud to announce Winnipeg’s first Soul Calibur 5 tournament held on February fourth at the U of Manitoba GSA Lounge! Like all of our launch tournaments, the Chip Damage Soul Calibur 5 Launch tournament will have free entry. Our tournament rules are still largely the same as they have been for similar games in the past:
- All tournament matches are to be held on the Sony PlayStation 3
- Prizes (to be announced) are awarded to the top three competitors
- Double elimination tournament bracket
- Matches are best two of three with rounds running best of five
- As of this post, no characters aside from custom characters are currently banned*
* We realize that Dampierre is a pre-order bonus so if he cannot be obtained through means other than a game pre-order, he will most likely be banned. Stay tuned for more on that as the game launch comes closer.
For details on all our tournament rules please visit our forums post here. Feel free to take part in the community discussion about this event on our forums. Doors open at 1:00 for casuals and the tournament starts at 4:00. As usual, you can register at the venue on the day of the tournament. Details are subject to change, so make sure to check back again in the coming weeks!
Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there!
