(FINAL ROUND)XI "A Southern Tradition"
"Sponsered by ShinBlanka, and all of his friends around the ATL South community"

Date: March 15 & 16 ,2008

Location: Same location as the past 2 years.

Holiday Inn - Atlanta
2001 Clearview Avenue
Atlanta, Ga. 30340

Phone: (770)455-3700

This is a EMS/DigitalFrontier Phat Production


1st of all, I would like to thank all of the people that support the FR tournaments for the past 11 years and support the ATL South scene before if was even call the ATL South division when you attend FR3-FR5. I've met so many people over the past 11 years of running FR. My dreams of having a major tournament in the southeast region has come true and it couldn't have happend without you guy's supporting the FR tournaments back in the day.

I hope to see everyone from last year back for this year's event and drag some of your friends that didn't attend with you last year by the ear down to the ATL. The last FR event was the biggest ever and I hope everyone can make it back this year.

Alot of people in the ATL South don't get the chance to travel around the nation to play against top players, so FR is an outlet for them to play the best in the southeast and hopefully other regions top players will come down to the dirty south. The history of FINAL ROUND is based on the"Console Warriors" style tournament. But now we have arcade cabinet's at Final Round. We will have atleast 3-4 arcade cabinets on games that the console version are truly not worth playing on a tournament level.

Games like ST, and A3 will be in arcade cabinets some having Perfect 360's and other's having 8 way standard switch joysticks. The arcade cabinets are donated by different players in the southeastern community. I really appreciate all of the support from those that always help out me and the southeast scene. I will put a star(*) by the games that will be on the cabinet's and the rest will be on console.

There is a entry fee that is separate from the entry fee to each tournament. FRXI entry fee is "$20". (This fee is to pay for the VENUE, BADGES, NEW JOYSTICKS AND BUTTONS FOR ARCADE MACHINES, and FRXI PIMP CUPS) Like always i need FRXI to pay for itself.

The games, how much, and the days that will be played are as followed:

3v3 Team tournaments are optional only if we have enough time after every tournament is completed. $5 a head, 3v3 round robin team tournament 70/20/10. Also you can't use the same characters in that team. If one of your teammates uses a character you can't use that character. That's the set up for all team tournaments. No multi character use.


"Team Tournament's will be held on Sunday unless there is time after the main tournament is completed."

Rules: All game Double Elim.--Best 2 out of 3

On all console tournament games:

This is a (B.Y.O.C. = Bring Your Own Controller/converter or Joystick) tournament for all of the console games being played at FRXI. You are responsible for your equipment and we will not supply anyone with a controller or converter at this tournament for any console tournament. Last year I supplied the PS2 to PS3 converters and 5 of them got stolen. I won't supply anymore converter's for finalround. I'm tired of getting my stuff stoen by some people that don't have any home trainning.

If you hit the start button or a malfunction in your equipment happens during a
match that makes the game pauses or resets during a tournament match get the head judge in charge of running that tournament to decide what will happen next for that match. Replays are automatic if it's at the beginning of the match and you have played 5-10 seconds in the game with no one having an advantage in the match. It's not my problem if "YOUR STICK" malfunction's during a tournament. I WILL BE THE FINAL SAY ON ANY PROBLEMS THAT MY TOURNAMENT JUDGES CAN'T RESOLVE!

I have had alot of email's about "button shouldering/mapping" in certain genre of games. I don't believe in them due to me growing up playing 2d fighters in the arcade's. I want to keep FinalRound as close to arcade perfect as I can, but this isn't the way that most namco 3d players view button shouldering gameplay. So I came up with this solution:

"Button shouldering" will "NOT" be allowed at FRX in the following games:

All capcom 2d fighters and all snk fighters

(THAT MEANS IF YOU RESET YOUR BUTTONS YOU MUST PUT THE DEFAULT MULTI-BUTTONS ON BLANK!!!) So that mean you won't have your 3xkick button, or 3xpunch button. This applies to snk games also. Any default presets that are NOT like the arcade set up are not allowed. If you don't have a 3x punch or kick button in the arcade then you won't use it at FRX! We are trying to make it as close to arcade type tournament as possible and NO button mapping the traditional way to play capcom and snk games IMO. I don't care where you put them on your controler/joystick but you should only have the following buttons input's for the following games:

Capcom games that are on consoles will have only 6 button inputs allowed on your controller/joystick and they are:

1. Jab punch=light punch
2. Strong punch=medium punch
3. Fierce punch=hard punch
4. Short kick=light kick
5. forward kick=medium kick
6. roundhouse kick=hard punch

SNK-Playmore games on console inputs that are allowed:

1. Light punch
2. Heavy punch
3. Light kick
4. Heavy kick

"Button Shouldering/mapping" "Will" be allowed for T5DR and SC4 since it's pretty much accepted in their community.

No stage may be used twice in a single set if the counter-picking player has already won on that stage, unless the opponent agrees to use the stage again. (Dave's Stupid Rule)

Any Team Tournament rules: You "CAN NOT" have 2 people using the same character on your team. So you better make your team wisely.

If you are playing in multiple games you need to notify a organizer when you are about to play in another game, so they can skip your match on the brackets and come back to you after you completed the other tournament match.

Also once the tournament starts you are responsible for knowing when your next match will come up. If you have to go for a food or bathroom break, then "PLEASE" notify the judge at your station or "me" that you will be gone for a few minutes. The judge should beable to tell you when your next game will be and how long you have before your next match up. Just act like you have been to a tournament before people and everything will run smoothly.

Anyone that get's out of line inside or outside of the hotel will force me to call the police on you. I know everyone watches the "Boondocks" on the cartoon network. I don't want any "NIGGA MOMENTS!" at this years event. Keep that "Bull****" online or at home. I don't care where you keep it just don't bring that Bull**** to FRXI. Act like you have some home training people.

I have 50 rooms reserved for people/groups that are attending FRXI. We need these rooms sold for that weekend since the hotel was nice enough to hold those rooms at a reduced rate for everyone attending FRXI. So if you are reserving a ROOM at the hotel for FINAL ROUND, MAKE SURE YOU TELL THE HOTEL STAFF YOU ARE WITH THE FINAL ROUND GROUP We have a discounted rate set up for you guys, just like we did last year. When you call up the hotel, don't just say you want to reserve a room, say you want to reserve a room for FINAL ROUND. The rooms are $89.99 when you tell them your with the Finalround group. Otherwise you're going to get overcharged. The normal price is $129.99 per night. If you have 4 people that would be only $22.25 each day for the hotel room..

P.S.- There is a poll that you can vote for the last Game on the tournament roster ( forums). I'll let the people decide what the 10th game should be. Let's make this the best tournament of the year. Also we want to make a FinalRound Documentary and would like to ask people to make vids of them traveling to finalround. I thought it would be kinda cool to see someone trip to FRXI. The best one's will be put on the FR doc dvd. Also we will have some people going around the ballroom video interviewing peeps getting their views on finalround's impact on the fighting game community as a whole. I can't wait to see you guy's again. I'm already hyped! Better practice up and tighten up your skills because FRXI will be here before you know it shawty.
