EVAC 27/06, 4/07, 11/07 – Early View of AVCon Competition

Posted by Alethea Lim On June - 26 - 2014Comments Off

Over the next few Fridays, EVAC will be hosting tournaments for Super Smash Bros! We’ve seen lots of Smash action lately and are excited to host pre-AVCon tournaments for both Melee and Brawl.

Tournament Schedule:

27th June: Warm up with Project M. The popular fan-mod for Brawl! Project M won’t be at AVCon but it’s a great spin on the Smash Bros series which lots of EVAC attendees have been enjoying as of late.
4th July: Melee. Melee is one of the oldest games we feature at AVCon and it still holds a strong following.
11th July: Brawl. AVCon’s largest tournament!

EVAC starts at 4pm and signups will start at this time. We will aim to start the tournament at 5pm but may need to do so earlier if we get lots of entrants. Late entries may be permitted depending on discretion of the Tournament Organiser. We’ll try and be done by 8pm but it’s very possible that we may run overtime.

Tournament rules/format:

Formats for each tournament will be decided on the day based on signups. But to give you an idea, we’ll likely evaluate which format to use in the following manner:

Tons of signups: Single elimination, best of 1.
Lots of signups: Single elimination, best of 3.
A moderate number of signups: Double elimination, best of 1.
Not many signups: Double elimination, best of 3.

Other rules:

Basically boils down to no extended/infinite combos (we don’t have all night) and no excessive stalling.
Where matches are played Best of 3 (or more) counterpicking will be used to determine stages.

Tournament Entry/Prizes:

Entry to all the tournaments will be free.
There will be no prizes but tournament results will be used to inform player seeding at AVCon.
We might also throw in some neat stuff for first place winners. Stay tuned!
UPDATE 27/06: Plans have fallen through for neat stuff. Maybe another time.

About AVCon

AVCon was founded in 2002 by EVAC (then known as AUVGA) and AJAS (the Japanese Animation society). Since then it’s grown into a massive convention! AVCon runs every year in July and over the years many EVAC regulars have dedicated their time to volunteering at AVCon.

About EVAC

EVAC is Adelaide University’s Gaming club. We meet every Friday from 4 to 8pm to play a variety of console games. We also love card games, board games and we’re probably the largest Mah Jong club on campus!

Everyone is welcome to attend weekly meetings. Club membership is not mandatory but costs $5 per year for Adelaide Uni students and $10 for others. Members get a cool buy-3-get-one-free deal at Pulp Fiction Comics and discounts at The Pad Bar and Lounge.

A map of the Adelaide University North Terrace campus is below. We meet in the Harry Medlin North, which is on level 4 of Union House.

EVAC 14/03/2014 – Jamestown

Posted by Alethea Lim On March - 12 - 2014Comments Off

Jamestown this week! Since this game largely co-operative we’ll award points based on participation. If you want to play on a pad you’ll need to bring it yourself, for now we can only guarantee keyboard and mouse.

Last week’s Halo “tournament” also turned into a participation-based reward system for points. Our points table will be updated soon.

EVAC 07/03/2014 – Halo 4

Posted by Alethea Lim On March - 4 - 2014Comments Off

We’re into week 2 of our Game of the Week challenge, for which we’ll be pulling out Halo 4. The last time EVAC held a Halo competition was back in 2005 (We were called AUVGA back then!)

Participating in our weekly challenges earns you points – current standings can be found at our 2014 challenges page.

We don’t tend to play much in the way of FPS games, so if you’re after some easy points now is the time to come along and paste all of the EVAC regulars! It’ll also be a perfect opportunity to get the ball rolling if you want to see more FPS games at EVAC.

Last weekend, a few of EVAC’s very own fighting crew took part in Battle Arena Melbourne‘s Street Fighter tournaments. Our very own Ali, Peter Lay and Rob attended the event and had a great time in Melbourne during the course of this event. Congratulations to Ali, who was able to get 4th place in Street Fighter IV singles. Read the rest of this entry »
