Brutality - August 2015



Summer Season 2015 is underway! This is Meet 2 of Summer Season, so that means there are only two more tournaments, counting this one, where you can earn ranking points for the Summer Championship in October!

VENUE
$5 - All Night Entry to Arcade Legacy

GAMES
MKX - PS4 - $5 Entry
KI - XBONE - $5 Entry

This is a BYOC event (Bring Your Own Controller). There are no guarantees that Arcade Legacy, PowerUp, or other players will provide you with controllers.

All players will be responsible for deleting Bluetooth devices from the PS4 that they are to play a tournament match on.

PRE-REGISTRATION

You may pre-register for the event, although it is not mandatory, at the following link: http://www.powerupfighters.org/p/pre-registration.html

STREAM

The stream will show exclusively MKX, unless we get 13 or more players in our KI bracket.

PRIZES

Entrance fees are divided amongst top placers based on the number of entrants in the bracket.

MKX Bonus Prizes
1st Place - $5
2nd Place - $5
3rd Place - $5
4th Place - $5

KI Bonus Prize
1st Place - $5

One random player who enters MKX and places 7th or below will receive free entry to the next Brutality event (a $5 value, cannot be turned into cash or credit). The same person may not win consecutively.

CHARITY
PowerUp is proud to have Brutality - August 2015 as an event where players and viewers can contribute charitable donations to Child's Play. Our goal is only $20 for this event, so let's make it happen! Be an upstanding #FGCitizen and go to the following link to contribute to Child's Play: http://www.powerupfighters.org/p/donate.html

POWER RANKINGS
Players who enter MKX will earn ranking points based on their performance. Players who earn points in the top 5 values will be invited to compete in a Championship Round Robin during Brutality - October 2015. There will be prizes, and there is the potential for a KI Championship as well, based upon further increases in the number of KI entrants.

There will be normal MKX and KI brackets during Brutality - October, and the power rankings will be reset for Fall Season 2015.

Players will be seeded in all Brutality MKX and KI brackets according to their power ranking. The first tournament of each season will always be randomly seeded. Players without a power ranking will be seeded as having zero ranking points.
