BAM2011
Welcome to another awesome year of Battle Arena Melbourne!
This year we're back with another huge finale to the Australian tournament calendar and more than hype about bringing a bigger and more exciting event to the heart of Melbourne this October.
We're back at CQ in Melbourne, hot off the heels of the amazing Shadowloo Showdown and shifting the focus back to our local talent and rivalries. More details will be coming in the coming months but for now, check out the details, lock in your registration and above all. Get Hype!



Date
October 1st and 2nd, 2011

Venue
Event Room 2: CQ, 123 Queen Street, Melbourne VIC 3000

CQ is located at the very centre of Melbourne's CBD. It is approximately a 5 minute walk from Flinders Street Station and a 10 minute walk from Southern Cross Station.


Website: http://www.cqmelbourne.com.au/index.html

Accommodation
We have organised an accommodation discount with the venue, so you can stay upstairs from the tournament, and simply (shower and then) roll on down in the morning to continue the action.
Prices are: $125 a night for a Superior Room (normal price $159)
$145 a night for a Deluxe Room (normal price $179)
Both rooms can include two king sized beds and thus can be shared
or for the high rollers:
$170.00 per night for a Superior Suite
$255.00 per night for a Executive Suite
Brochure here (see page 5): http://www.cqmelbourne.com.au/downloads ... it0909.pdf
To get the discounted rate, simply state when booking that you are attending for BAM and they will ensure you get the lower rate accordingly.

If you wish to opt for a cheaper option many other hotels and backpackers are within easy walking distance.

It's currently not planned, but if there's enough support for it we'll definitely consider it.  8)

I'd be interested to see that again too, if anyone else is too then let us know.  :D

Edit: Also it appears I've accidentally made two events on the calendar. If someone can delete the one without Terms and Conditions please that would be nice.   :)

I wanna see it, only down side though is it goes way to fast and marvel doesn't seem to fit as well with this format as SSFIV does.
Cause one mistake could cost you the whole game, unlike with SSFIV.

Maybe 5v5 best of 3?.. :P

should add a 'gallery' in the bam website.

That's a good idea actually. I'll definitely look into setting it up when I get a chance. In the meantime I'm happy for people to submit photos to the CW Facebook page.

I'm pumped for Bam. Hope we get a lot of interstaters able to make the trip to Melbourne again, it's gonna be a party :D

I should be rocking a new AE character, and will probably have a new MVC3 team...only Ali has seen my new MVC3 team, and he can attest to it's strength  :dpf: :p:
