Welcome to ClassicMK's Summer 2010 Mortal Kombat 2 Tournament. If you are a CMK veteran, you know the drill with how these things work. This is a unique endeavor for CMK as we are now offering significant prizes to the players who best prove themselves and test their might amongst an elite group of kombatants. The best part? It's free to enter!

Tournament run dates: 8/23 - 9/7

This is a Kaillera/PS3 tournament; however Kaillera is the primary playing format. Explanation:
If both users use MAME/Kaillera, the match will be played via Kaillera.
If both users have a PS3, the match may be played on either Kaillera or PS3.
If one user has Kaillera and the other only has a PS3, the match MUST be played via Kaillera. This means the PS3 user will need to download the Kaillera software and use it for the match-up.

If you do not have Kaillera installed on your computer and/or need assistance with getting it setup, please see this link for detailed instructions:
http://classicmk.com/index.php?topic=1046.0

PRIZES
1st Place - $50 (or equivalent value) PSN/XBL/Wii card
2nd Place - $20 (or equivalent value) PSN/XBL/Wii card
3rd Place - $20 (or equivalent value) PSN/XBL/Wii card
4th Place - $10 (or equivalent value) PSN/XBL/Wii card

Since we are playing for actual prizes, the rules will be strictly enforced by CMK staff. CMK veterans should already be familiar with the guidelines; however if you are a newcomer we ask that you please read over these rules very carefully to ensure the tournament runs as smoothly as possible.

OFFICIAL RULES

We are aiming for 16, 32, 64 etc participants in order to get an even numbered bracket. If an appropriate number of players cannot be found, first round byes will be awarded at random
Best of 13 matches (not first to 7, therefore every match must be played even if you have accumulated the majority of wins). This will become important in tiebreakers.
Once brackets are posted, you will receive 3 days to complete your first round match with your opponent and post results of your match by 11:59 pm est of the deadline date.
You do not need to record your match, but please write down your scores (ie. 4-9 or 6-7) and character matchups if you remember them.
Tourney duration will be 2 weeks. If necessary, we can extend. Deadline for reporting scores will be posted. Please get your matches done ASAP to keep the tourney running as smoothly as possible.
To avoid unfair counterpicking, all matches MUST be done using random select.
In order to register, you MUST post in this thread and state you wish to enter. NO EXCEPTIONS. Do not message me on PSN.
If you have been previously banned from CMK, you are banned from entering the tournament. CMK staff reserves the right, at any time, to disqualify any participant suspected of ban evasion.

DISQUALIFICATIONS

If a player selects a character without random select that match will NOT count. If you accidentally pick Liu Kang or Reptile, then the match will not count and will be omitted. (If you need to message your opponent in game for whatever reason then let the timer run out on the character select screen)
If a player willingly quits than that player is eliminated for the entire tourney *lag exception see below
If a player no-shows a match or does not complete the 13 matches they are disqualified
If a player does not post results of their match they will be disqualified
If a person is lagging severely with several people, intentional or not, that player may be removed from the entire tournament.
Anyone suspected of purposely lagging a match to gain an unfair advantage will be disqualified.

POSTING RESULTS OF A MATCH

Remember to have a pen and paper ready when you play your games so you can write down your results after each match.

Example:
1= wazz56
2= smoke
3= wazz56
4= wazz56
5= smoke
6= smoke
7= wazz56
8= smoke
9= smoke
10= wazz56
11= wazz56
12= smoke
13= wazz56

LAG EXCEPTION

If connection breaks, then both players must restart the match with the same characters (prior round win is omitted). If the breaking connection is suspicious like breaking right before a victory than the player has a right to report it. (if you click the ps3 button you will see if the person is still playing mk2... if it doesn't than they've manually exited the game).
In the case of lag, keep trying. If after a few tries the connection is not good, please report back to this forum IMMEDIATELY and a new matchup may be made for you with another opponent, provided other players have not yet played their matches.
It is strongly encouraged to play some warmup games before the actual thing to test out the lag waters. Make sure the connection is going to be ok before you start playing.
*You will have up to the 3rd match to quit on account of lag if it is really unplayable without being faulted (after the 3rd match is played you must continue the rest of your 10 remaining matches even if lag begins to creep in.) You must notify your opponent you are quitting due to lag and must report this asap in this thread in order to get a new opponent other wise you may both be disqualified. Therefore it is best to play early in case you may need to swap opponents as there may be no available opponents left if all matchups have been played. This lag exception ONLY applies to non-prize round matches. Semi's and Finals must be played regardless of lag.
If a person is DQ'ed, and another opponent cannot be found for the remaining player, then a reserve will be used. If there is no reserve, than the player will receive a bye. Byes only allowed in quarterfinals. If a replacement player is needed in the semi's or finals, it will be determined from the previous rounds' highest scoring losing player. If there is a tie, then the winner will get to pick.

If you are playing your matches on Kaillera ,please DO NOT
have ANYTHING running on your PC aside from MAME or Kaillera
any 2.4 ghz cordless telephone calls

If possible, try to get a hardwired connection; whether the matches are played on PSN or Kaillera. The last thing you want have happen is get DQ'd due to lag. Remember, you are playing for a shot at some serious gift cards and you don't want it to just go up in smoke!

yer too funny, kraptile! i still love our Macs. besides... do these PC players buy special sticks / controllers? i couldn't imagine tryin to use a keyboard fer MK or any other fighter for that matter.

it is pretty dope of 'em to be offering giftcards as prizes, but i wouldn't want to be the cat tryin' to mod all the whinners who lost due to 'lag'.

eitherway...  best of luck CMK, & youz should consider takin' RAW up on their MK II challenge.

Parallels virtually runs windows, meaning you open windows op sys while being able to use mac os as main op sys, I believe.
Boot camp creats a partition on the mac drive and therefore boots up completely free from mac os.

I think virtually you have the benefit of using more ram power of the mac cause I have 4GB of RAM on the mac but stupid windows only recognizes 1. something, something.

Most people either use sticks or setup their ps3/360 controllers on their PC. Its pretty easy to do, lots of guides about if you want them Smiley

hmm... that's too bad about john, I really thought he would have made it far in this. I think if bt doesn't win it, he will definitely get some money out of the deal.
