    Format
    - Every player will play every other player once in order to determine seeding for playoffs
    - If there are between 4-7 participants, a 4-man single elimination (3 rounds) playoff system will be used
    - If >=8 participants, an 8-man double elimination playoff system will be used
    - Please see <a target="_blank" href=http://www.feixaq.com/bavf>bay area vf</a> for a better understanding of the competition format.

    Timing
    - League play will begin at 3pm(?) PST
    - Playoffs will start at approximately 5pm(?) PST

    Registration
    - Players can assure themselves of tournament participation by RSVPing to this thread
    - If you cannot make the 3pm time, please suggest an alternative time.
    - Alternatively, participants can register on the day itself, but no later than 15 minutes prior to commencement of the tournament

    Side picks
    - In any given LEAGUE PLAY matchup, side pick (1P/2P) will be decided by coin toss
    - In any given PLAYOFF matchup, the player that was seeded higher in league play will have first dibs at side selection. The lower-seeded player gets to pick the stage.

    Logistics
    - Machine will be set to Best 3 of 5 per game
    - Time = 45 seconds
    - Tournament mode = on (so the game ends once the match is over, even for the winner.)

    Prizes
    Okay, this is where I need feedback from the SVGL regulars. Would you guys rather have no entry fee and no prizes, or an entry fee of $5 that will go towards a pot that will be distributed 60%/30%/10% to 1st/2nd/3rd...? Doesn't really matter to me either way, but please let me know which you think is better. Also, we should try to get the tournament mode set up this time round... Tragic or Jackybrothas, could you help look into this...?

    I believe that the entry fee will stop many players joining the tournament. I prefer the tournament without entry fee.

    i talked with management today while he was switching the joysticks......after asking him to add another round i asked him if it would be ok if the machine will be set on tournament mode this saturday or anytime we decide to have a mini-tournament, he said yea but he or someone capable (supervisors) of doing it will have to be there not just any of the staff....
