LET'S GET READY TO RRRRUUUUMMMMBLLLLLLE!

For the second year in a row we are hosting Portland's first single player style tournament. This two day Royal Rumble will consist of Swiss rounds on Saturday and a double elimination tournament followed by a knife fight on Sunday.

AND YES THERE WILL BE DONUTS!

On Saturday, four/five Swiss Rounds will be played, during which each player's team will be randomly put together (with the help of Podium) before the beginning of each round. At the end of the Swiss Rounds players will be ranked based on win/loss points. Using these rankings, teams will be created for the Double Elimination on Sunday.

At the end of the Double Elimination tournament, there will be a three-way knife fight to determine who is the Rose City Royal Rumble champion!

Like last year, there will be super dope prize for the person that has the best wrestler costume. Bonus points given to those who not only dress up, but take on the wrestlers persona.

Great prizes for the Royal Rumble champion, including the privelage to wear the Rose City Royal Rumble Champion belt for a year! Prizes for loads of other stuff as well!

Signed up

best format of the game since, ever.

Randomly the same? like last year? I suspect those kinks have been worked out?

Podium will help designate teams at the beginning of each round, but it will be put together a little more formally than putting everyone's mallets in the fence. There will be a dry erase board with names and magnets, and it will go a lot more smoothly, I hope. haha

Orson, if you're out there, I'm calling you out... my finger is hovering over the launch button of a thousand missiles of maximum payne! just come into cascadia and you will be the target of a thousand cruise missiles of kick ass. after I'm done with you, there won't be any civilization for a thousand years! ohhh yeahhh. Maximum payne awaits you!

(also try hitting up aaron hand, to see if you got your spot and he's on facebook)

It's Olsen.

I'm sorry... Orson.

You can't deny your commitment to the wrestler persona.

This thing filled up in less than 12 hours (which blew my mind away!) and there are already like 15 people on the waiting list. I really wish we had a set up that would allow us to host everyone. Maybe by next year we will have two lit courts!

BTW, I had a dumbs and bought plane tickets as soon as the tournament was announced without checking for registration details.

So I'm in the queue now... but I'd appreciate updated information re:registration vs. actual attendance as the date approaches, so I can fuck off to ECCC if there isn't a chance of getting on the court.

Love you guys, can't wait to see you all!
