FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Why on <day>? Why not on <different day>?
Weekends tend to work best for these two titles as they will likely pull the largest number of entries and most people work during weekdays. If you work weekends, you know the schedule in advance, so please do what you can to get the day off!

You guys are running tournaments like, every week! You are crazy and I hate you.
I know, right? We want to try to make sure everyone’s got a tournament to throw down in, so, hopefully, you guys are happy!

Are you going to run Ranbats for other games? Primal Rage/Jackie Chan/Killer Instinct!
We might, someday. ;) Please stay tuned for more information on Ranking Battles for these titles!

Are you going to run regular tournaments? I don’t like Ranbats and/or I can’t show up to every round.
Just Ranbats for now, sorry!

Your dates/rules/payout methods suck and I hate you! Please die.
We’re always open to making changes and we welcome all suggestions/feedbacks! Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think! This is out first attempt at running Ranbats/Tournaments, but we are doing what we can to ensure the best experience for our Guests!
