That Summer Tournament 7 – August 11-12

Visit TST.CHIPDAMAGE.COM for full info!

That Summer Tournament, better known as TST is Chip Damage’s biggest annual tournament we hold in August and have been for the last several years. Our roots are strong, comprised of our great community that has supported us through the thick and thin. But, this year, we are pushing it even further, making TST7 our biggest tournament to date. Bigger venue, more games, more prizes, more everything!

TST7 will NOT be taking place at the UofM as we have a NEW venue. Also, the event WILL be streamed all of Saturday and Sunday with the possibility of CDC Radio doing their 40th episode live! Be sure to follow us over at TWITCH.TV.

We got more good news!
TST 7 is an official Canada Cup 2012 Team Canada Wildcard Qualifier! The qualifier will be part of the AE2012 tournament that is happening at TST 7. This is open to Canadian players only.

If you win our AE2012 tournament, you qualify for the Wildcard 4 man tournament that will take place at Canada Cup on Oct 26th-28th in Calgary, AB. If you win THAT tournament, you will earn the 5th spot on Team Canada in the Canada Cup International 5v5 team tournament! Also, 50% of your plane ticket will be covered by CCG themselves!

Be aware that the Team Canada roster is comprised of 5 players with no character duplicates. This means if another qualifier tournament has run and a player using your character has already qualified, this automatically disqualifies the ability for the winning character to be used by anyone else. As CCG.Air is Team Captain, RYU is already locked. If a player using an already qualified character wins, the qualifying spot will be passed on to the next eligible placing player.

Just when you thought this couldn’t get any more hyped, we got word down the grapevine that there may be a little somethin’ somethin’ from Winnipeg’s very own Strata Studios! Our lips are sealed… just be sure to stick around, even when all the games are said and done.

As promised. This year’s TST will be taking place outside the UofM. It has been confirmed for Canad Inns on Pembina by the Tavern if you’re familiar. Here’s the full address and the room number:

Soul Calibur 5 Launch Tournament, February 4th!

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!

TST IV: Live IV the Fight (Aug 15-16)

TST4_700short

This is it the big Winnipeg major! This is the tournament where you want to perform your best, well at least for the ones not going to Evo. Shane again is the top player to gun down in several games. Russel is the defending champ at TST but Wilson has been running through him in the past few tournaments. Can he finally come through and win the big one?

Those are some of the stories going into the event. Be sure to get in the practice and lets put on a show! With some of the new games coming out we are planning to run tournaments for them. The list is subject to change depending on what you guys want. Remember folks that this tournament doesn’t run without input from everyone. If enough people speak up we will do what we can to compensate for it. On to the details.

  • Entry Fee to Site: FREE
  • Rules can be found here.

Please keep in mind that things may change between now and TST in August, seem keep your eyes on here and on the original forum post for TST IV.

The schedule for TST can be found below.

Fight for the Future 2 – NOVEMBER 22

Click here for directions to this event.

ChipDamage.com is proud to present Fight for the Future 2: Revived, a fund-raising fighting games tournament for a local charity, the Children’s Hospital.

Well, the first Fight for the Future II got canned, simply because of time and scheduling. So here’s the revival of it. This will be a fund-raising tournament, with most of the entry fees going towards a local charity yet to be decided on. The first one was a pretty good success since we raised 200 dollars from just 5 tournaments. This year, we’re hoping to raise a bit more with support from other players from around the nation/world.

Fight for the Future 2 Details:

Games:
Super Smash Bros. Melee: 2:00pm
Capcom vs. SNK2: 2:00pm
Super Street Fighter Turbo (HD-Remix if it’s out): 4:00pm
Street Fighter 3 – 3rd Strike: 6:00pm
Sould Calibur IV: 7:00pm

Location: Armes Building Science Lounge

Date: Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

Entry to the venue is free. Entry per game is $5.00. If you pay for 3 tournaments ($15.00), you may enter a 4th free of charge.

The prize structure will be different as we will be doing a raffle and will have only 3 prizes for the 5 tournaments. It will go as follows:
Everyone who enters will get a predetermined amount of tickets for entering. The more games entered the more tickets they’ll receive. The more matches you win will earn you more tickets. You may then distribute your tickets amongst the prizes that will be available. This way, everyone will get a chance to win when we draw out the prizes. Prizes will most likely be something along the lines of gift cards from EB (Electronics Boutique), Futureshop, or something along those lines. If you do not wish to wait until the drawing occurs, be sure to leave your contact info and we’ll try to find a way to get the prize to you.

Drinks will be sold and proceeds will go to the charity as well.
