Due to the mass amount of popularity for Rock Band 2,  please expect a certain amount of rule changes as the event gets closer.  Things set in stone at the moment include; needing to have all 4 positions taken up, Most points in after one or two songs will determine the winner, and Disqualification for any team that fails to allow the Staff member to record thier score.

As for everything else, we are working our best to figure out the best way to accomidate more than 16 teams at the event.

Free play will be available at the event as well.

(Errata- Apparently, Rock Band 2 allows for automatic configuration, and lag fixing. So you do not need to come on Thursday’s practice night if you want to bring your own equipment. However, please send us an email so we know in advance. )

– Automatic disqualification for any team that doesn’t allow the official to record scores for the song or set.
