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!

Registration Fee: $5.00
Yes, there is a registration fee this year. It’s necessary to cover the costs of the venue rental. However, if you don’t wish to enter tournaments, site entrance is still free and gets you access to casual play, exhibitions, and/or money matches.

Registration usually begins 1 or 2 hours before each tournament, so get there early and warm up some too.

If you wish to enter any tournament, you pay for the tournament entry fees on top of the 5 dollars.

This is largely a BRING YOUR OWN STICKS/CONTROLLER event but.
The console equipment will be labeled and registered to ensure its safety. However, please be careful with your sticks. Furthermore, if you know you’re attending and you do not have a stick to use, make sure you have a friend who can donate.

For pad/PS2 stick players, we tend to have PS2 pads and/or converters around, but don’t take this as confirmation of us having them there for you. Bring your own to be safe as opposed to sorry.


Let’s have a big turn out and see what everyone can bring to the table.

Saskatchewan usually has a presence at this tourney too, so if you want to see what they can do too without the horror of actually going to Saskatchewan, this is your ticket Wink.

Yes, we’re aware that it’s close to EVO but unfortunately it can’t be helped. You should come make back some of the money spent in Vegas and abound anyway.

Brought to you by the wonderful folks at Make sure to check back regularly for updates, or follow our Twitter account @ChipDamage to stay in the loop. We hope to see you there!
