For many years I've wanted to put on a four-panel dance simulation tournament in the Central Florida area. Up until now I haven't been able to do so, but with a little help from members of the dance simulation community it is now possible. First I need to apologize to all the four-panel players reading this as this is a five-panel (meaning Pump It Up) dance simulation tournament. This tournament is being held in celebration of Fun In Motion's newest dance simulation title, Pump It Up Pro 2!
Please make sure to read through all the rules and other details below. If you have any questions, please contact one of our event coordinators and we shall get back to you as soon as possible. It would be best to send a PM to Crevolous.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
The tournament will be held this upcoming January on the 7th and 8th at Boardwalk Bowl in Orlando, FL. The tournament will be double elimination style meaning once you lose the second time you're out. Please read through the rules below as they are explained in detail.
DATE & TIME:
Registration - Friday, January 7th, 2011 - 5:00 PM-7:30 PM

The registration fee per entrant is set at $10 if you register early. All money will be collected the day of the tournament and must be paid in cash. All entrants who register the day before the tournament (January 7th, 2011) will pay a fee of $15. Make sure to register before Friday to avoid paying the $15 price. Early registration can be done through our registration form.
Once you register for the tournament through the website, you will receive a confirmation e-mail notifing your registration was received. You can view the registration form here.
There are five possible qualifying songs, one of which will be chosen randomly the day before the tournament. The five songs are as follows:
EternuS - Sanxion7 (CZ 10)
Man VS. Mountain - Throwdown (CZ 10)
Miss's Story - BanYa (CZ 9)
Move It Groove It - Kaw feat. Sam-I-Am (CZ 10)
Rainspark - Sanxion7 (CZ 10)
The day before the tournament one of qualifying songs will be chosen at random. Once the qualfying song has been selected, participants will go up two at a time. This process will continue until all participants are seeded in the tournament.
The higher seed selects either their side of choice or song of choice before their match begins. I.E.: If the higher seed selects their side of choice, the lower seed picks the first song. The winner of the round will be declared after a player wins two out of three songs. If each player wins one song, a third song will be selected at random until the tie is broken.
The loser of the round will be placed in the Loser's Bracket. If a player looses in the Loser's Bracket, they are elminated from the competition.
Below are the official rules of the tournament. Anyone who breaks these rules will be first given a warning. If a second infraction occurs that player will be removed from the tournament.
1.) All songs must be played on the Crazy difficulty only.
2.) The higher seed must choose their playing side or first song. The first player to win two songs will move on to the next round. If each player wins a song, a third song will be randomly selected.
3.) Speed mods are set to the player's preference. Turn mods such as (left, right, shuffle, ect.) are not permitted. Players may choose to change their perspective if needed.
4.) You are not allowed to choose a song more than once throughout the competition with exception to the Final Four Round Robin.
5.) You are not allowed to choose the same song your opponent chose previously in the same match.
6.) If you fail or stop playing for five seconds, your opponent wins the song. If your opponent forfeits a song you automatically win that song and do not have to continue playing.
7.) Players are not permitted to skip the results screen until the organizer gives the ok. Players who bypass the results screen will receive a warning the first time. If a second infraction occurs that player will be removed from the tournament.
This is a co-ed tournament, meaning both women and men will compete against one another. There simply isn't enough time to split the tournament into two divisions. Also, the bar may be used during the tournament. We recommend players use the bar to avoid hurting themselves during many of the high speed songs found in the Pump It Up Pro series.
There will be an undetermined cash prize for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place contestants.
