To the members and friends of Gaming Society, this past week Japan has suffered a great tragedy. To assist in those efforts, I (ChaplinD) with the help of the GS E-Board, will be hosting a LoL tournament, and maybe others*, to raise money to be donated to the Red Cross. Event details are still in the works, as well as prizes support, however, the current goal is for this event to be held as early as the weekend after everyone gets back to campus.

Grifball Tournament

Gaming Society will be hosting a Halo 3 Grifball Tournament!

What: Halo 3, Grifball!

Where: UMass Dartmouth Campus Center Commuter Cafe

When: Friday, April 23rd, 6:00pm

Cost: Free for everyone!

Grifball is a sub-game of Halo 3 in which teams of 4 square off against eachother in a completely open square arena. The object of the game is to score more points than the other team by the end of the round. Points are scored by running the Bomb into the opposing team’s goal. The carrier of the bomb is slightly faster and has enhanced shields but no weapons. Everyone else is equipped with a gravity hammer and a sword.

Teams must consist of 4 players and teams will square off Grifball style. This will be a best of 3 game set with double elimination brackets, time permitting. If you do not have all 4 players for your team, fear not! Come anyways and we will find people to fill out your team.

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.

Rock Band 2 Tournament Rules

When: March 27,2009

Where: Campus Center

Time:  7:00 start, 6:30 registration
Format-Single Elimination, best of 3 songs

  • Team A will pick a song available on both systems
  • Team B will pick a song available on both systems
  • Gaming Society will pick a 3rd song, as the tie breaker

How to win!

Each rounds score, band notes completed percentage, and Overall performance* will be recorded.

*Note on Overall Performance- is ranked on how the band plays the song and quality of the song. This is a subjective ranking, that will be scored from 1-10.

You win a round by having a higher score than the opposing team, win two rounds and the battle is yours.


-Teams need to have a Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Vocals

– An Xbox 360 and PS3 system with Rock band 1 equipment will be provided.

-Players interested with playing with their own equipment need to are asked to show up on Thursday night practice night. (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.

****All rules are subject to change prior to the event, due to the complexity of the event.

This event is sponsored by Gaming Society, SAIL Weekend Events, Concert Tech, and DPO
