PREREG IS REQUIRED! CLOSES JANUARY 10TH!
Ending this season with a bang, PGH's first arcadian seeks to feature the best of the rest of PGH's rising star warriors! This explicitly Kirby-themed tournament will host Arcadian Singles, a Shark Tank, and Professional/Amateur doubfles — that's one PR player and one unranked player per team! Not to mention the venue's ensemble of all-you-can-play arcade, console, and tabletop games that the venue fee grants you access to!
There will also be an assortment of fun Kirby-themed side events like KIrby Air Ride, and people can run whatever they want outside of that.(crews? :eyes:)
While there might not be a PMF Birthday this year, PGH couldn't go without its annual winter party. The PGH Project M Arcadian: Knightmare in Dreamland is cut out to be the region's biggest event of the year, attracting out-of-region and newer players thanks to its unique events and kickass venue: Victory Pointe, Pittsburgh's very own arcade and cafe!
HOW WILL REGISTRATION WORK?
You're expected to reg for the events you're eligible for — it's an honor system. if you register for the wrong events (i.e. a PR player registers for the arcadian, two unranked players reg for teams, etc) then you will be removed from the event by a TO and have to register again.
Note that top 3 of the arcadian bracket will be able to participate in the shark tank as well!
WHAT IS AN ARCADIAN?
The Arcadian is a tournament for new players and up-and-comers. NO PGH/NEOH PR players will be allowed to enter the main tournament (arcadian singles), unless they are determined to no longer be close to PR-level by the time of the event.
HOWEVER, there will be a pro bracket for PR-level players (as well as the top 3 placers of the arcadian!) to enter that'll also have a $50+ pot bonus.
HOW WILL ELIGIBILITY BE DETERMINED FOR OUT OF REGION/INACTIVE PLAYERS?
Players will be evaluated by the TOs and PGH/NEOH PR panel for eligibility. This decision will be final, and not subject to being complained about on Facebook, Discord, or Junkmail's blog.
TOs: Lily Pearl (Vaporeon), Dandy Shawn (Dandy), and Ban Raspali (Lentil)

$5 Arcadian Singles/Shark Tank Singles
$5 Pro/Am Doubles ($10 Per team, $5 per person)
Fun Kirby-themed side events (Kirby Air Ride is near-guaranteed, and I've heard talk of some speedrunning races!)
The pot bonus will be distributed as follows:
$50+ Will go toward arcadian singles, distributed between top 3 60/30/10.
$50 will go toward shark tank singles, distributed between first and second 70/30.
Only unranked and non-PR level players may enter the arcadian singles bracket, while only PR-level players may enter the shark tank — the exception being that the top 3 placers of arcadian singles will be eligible to participate in the pro bracket (shark tank) and prove their ability.
If the shark tank reaches 16+ entrants it will be ran as a double elimination bracket rather than a round robin.
Professional/amateur doubles teams may only consist of one unranked and one PR-level player.
Venue opens to public at 12:00.
Professional/Amateur Doubles start at 2:00.
Pools begin at 4.
Bracket begins at 5:30.
Shark Tank Singles begin around 7.
All brackets are hopefully over by 11.
The event should close around 12.
Remember that the times aren't rigid and things may start early/late. Feel free to get here a bit early, and if needed, we can stay past midnight.
Also remember that this is a public space. Be respectful to the other patrons at the arcade and whomever else you find yourself around.
Venue fee ALSO grant you a wristband that includes all-you-can-play arcade games, console bar, and tabletop gaming! Did I mention it's BYOB? Their menu has lots of awesome sweets, ice cream, and milkshakes!
Additional food can be found all throughout East Carson and the Southside — there's a Domino's just about a block down from the venue.
Parking can be found on surrounding streets, along with a decent-sized lot that can be found off of East Carson Street and between 13th and 12th Street. If that's full, try some of the side streets such as Bingham or the various numbered ones.
PLEASE BRING SETUPS, as many TVs+Wiis as possible. There's plenty of space to put them. Primarily bring 3.62E setups — we can change them to such if absolutely needed.
«3.62E» is just 3.6 with the PMBR stages, which you can find a Legacy TE version of here: http://mediafire.com/file/00cikst46e7xvec/Unofficial_Legacy_TE_2_with_Smash_n_Splash_stages_%2528FIXED%2529.zip/file
