    Ok, so that tourney in Cedar Rapids got moved up to the 29th of January. Apparently Mt. Mercy doesn't approve of events that draw non-students or some crap like that, so we won't get a full room like we initially planned. Instead, we'll use the space that we normally play casuals at. Good news is, there definitely won't be any sort of venue fee. We'll probably have two setups to run our stuff on, but it might be dropped to one depending on how big Smash gets, and honestly that's all we need. Again, the thread with all vital details:

    Midwest Highest point in Linn County - Smash World Forums

    Also, what system do you prefer to have SSF4/BB on?

    There's really no information about the SF4 aspect of this event. Do you think there's going to be more specifics as time goes on because with an event 2 miles from my apartment, it's tough to refuse if only to meet with the players of the area.

    Everything about the non smash stuff-- either I've already said or we'll decide at the event itself. Not sure what else you need to know. It's all standard stuff, Double Elimination, best 2/3 rounds each game, best 2/3 games each match, any character, winner must stay with a character (but they can change ultra), loser may switch character. WF, LF, GF will be 3/5 games. As far as pot split, we can decide that there. I don't know what the turnout will be.

    I plan to go.

    As for system ---- I'm guessing that Xbox 360 would be fine? If it's not really gonna draw a lot of people from outside besides maybe smashers, it really wouldn't matter. Plus, most of us have 360 anyways.

    I'll be sitting this one out honestly. Having just spent more money than i intended to in chicago. That and honestly the only games I'll be working on in the foreseeable future are VS and ST. Once marvel 3 comes out I'll be all over that as well. But for now I'm dropping CS. I just don't care about that game with CS2 out there, especially since it is impossible to practice the changes to hazama in CS1.

    I may still pop in super now and again, but really i feel the same way about it as I do with CS now that AE is floating out there.

    All that being said, we should really plan some kind of gathering for MvC3's release.
    No one cares Syxx.

    This brought a tear to my eye.... I'm so happy!

    Let me know when you want to play either, on or offline.

    As for Marvel 3, I'm going to try and go in with an open mind to it. I can already say I'm not looking to compete and be the best at it, but I can see myself having fun with it. I still haven't decided on who my "ideal" third is. Right now it's Deadpool (I can't not play him, even if he turns out to be bad), Super Skrull, and *Blank*.

    I'm thinking of picking up VS as well since my Xox red ringed.

    For MVC3 I'm going triple Viper :P

    speaking of mvc3, terrible news! I'm starting to have some doubts about antman being a playable character.
    And the man formerly known as grog will use Felicia as his third.

    I agree, we need to have a release party of some sort. Also I just want to point out that I was saying this months ago in irc. Ask blake.

    Oh, thanks for replying David. And actually system does matter precisely because we might draw smashers. They prefer PS3 (obv. they play on pad), at least for BB anyway.

    ...Also, what system do you prefer to have SSF4/BB on?
    Do you have an idea of how many people might be there for SF4? I don't have any plans yet for the 29th, so I'll probably show up. $5 entry fee, right? Also, I'd prefer PS3 for SF4.
  • ngamer3kngamer3k Ground-Type Joined: Posts: 355
    Honestly, I don't know. That's why people need to POST and give me some sort of idea. And, if you don't have anything going on...come and bring others if possible. This is SOMETHING at least. People need to realize this more than anything.

    Speaking of SOMETHING, Joker's tourney is starting again the 15th of Jan, yes this saturday. I posted about it a while back, but yeah. Bryon, I implore you to come if I go.

    Well if it really wasn't clear to you Blake I can tell you for sure that I won't be going. I decided a while ago that I will never again go to an event where smash is the main draw.

    Edit: oh yea, I know you guys don't care about Tekken but Alex is holding a Tekken 6 tourney this weekend at his house. So if you wanted to come just to play on the cabs his house is open to you for sure this Sat, and if you wanted to stay late I'm sure you would be welcome to crash at my parents.

    I'd love to go play on the cabs but i spent way more monies this weekend than intended. Once the weather stops being less iowa like I'd definitely like to head out there sometime.

    I already knew that. Also, hope I can make it the next time something else is held there, because I've wanted to come for a while but since they never post here, I have no idea what the hell they're doing.
    Blake: Give me a TV and some free soup and I'll be there.

    I can't make any promises really. I have enough trouble getting space for one setup that isn't Smash. Blank will be there and he said he might bring a tv, but space is always an issue.

    where is this at i have the entire weekend off for once (stupid casino) oh and so now i guess my car consist of me, quadcore, kemps and our personal cheerleader for the arcade x console. We technically have one more spot left IF ANYONE WANTS TO COME. We are leaving early in the morning (around 7) and we will leave when the entire group decides to leave.

    For Joker's Saturday who all is going? Also what are we going to run? I suggest the usual $5 SF4 AKA Blake donation, but we always do a fun tourney afterwards, what do we want to do this time? We did $1 CVS2 last time i was there. Maybe we could do something with VS since it's getting pretty popular? I don't think there's a good console version of that though is there? I can bring a TV and my Xbox no problem. What do you guys suggest?

    The ps2 version of VS is pretty good if you have the dipswitches set correctly, but it JPN only. It also allows the VS2 characters, and phobos I guess is pretty OP, but you can always just ban them if you are worried.

    Also, I realize the odds are that no one is, but if anyone is coming down to alex's on sat and wants to play VS PLEASE let me know. Alex is currently planning on swapping the VS and ST boards in his cabs since one of the ST monitors is dead, so if we want to play VS I've gotta let him know theres strong interest.

    If someone else was considering driving i wouldn't mind going out to that deal to get some VS practice in, I'm guessing the odds of that are basically nil.

    I'll be there this Saturday once I get off of work at 4.

    Put something in the music threads, good chance I'll like it.

    Long as someone's picking me up from the bus station, I'll be at joker's. I will not be entering anything, though.


    If Keela's planning a gathering or something in the future, I'll be down. This one's just too short a notice.

    I think VS is a great idea or CvS2 again. It would probably be best to do whatever we do on ps2 since we'll probably have those available.

    @Latino- Joker's address is 2500 Bennett Ave Des Moines, it's the last house on the street on the left. If you want to come, plan on getting there after 3 or 4.

    @Curtis- Just bring your SPF2THDR skills so we can run that crap back. Rules: FT3, no Ken, $$ = TBD, oh and maybe another 360 pad for our halo thingy.
