    Yeah I was thinking about Megabusing it to Atlanta from florida and then maybe catching a ride with one of the Atl crew if possible. I'll just try and see which one is cheaper for me.

    I know I'm likely bussing, but that's only from a couple hours away. But I'll have to find someone to crash with this time around. Don't have the extra coin for my own room.

    the last real tournaments I went too was FR7 and FR8. This looks like a good time for me to come out of retirement. sucks that I've been living in philly for 3 years now and just found out tournaments like this have been happening only 30 minutes away from me. I'll add my games and such at a later date.

    Does this mean no room discounts?

    There are room discounts. Eric was just saying to book as soon as possible as there is another event in the area. Once the deadline for these rooms pass (usually 20 days before an event, but it could be more than that), they open up to the general public. The discount will be available, but it'll be first come first serve for a room.

    When we do these events, we block off an amount of rooms just for our events. These rooms can only be booked with the (for example) ECT code. If you were to book it without the code, you wouldn't get the discount, nor would you be counted towards our group rate. Once the deadline passes however, the code is active for the discount, but that block of rooms is no longer exclusive.

    ahhh i c. im new to the fighting scene. sfxt was first game since sfii on genesis. i use the sfiv te arcade stick. im assuming can only be used on xbox. thanks for the info ill check into it. if i can make it work im going to this event haha

    A little late here, but if you're not afraid to open the stick and touch a circuit board there are some fairly easy options for modifying a 360 TE to work on PS3 as well. The Kitty should work on most (all?) models of TE. The Cerberus will work on most TEs except the oldest models. Head over to the Tech Talk forum and look around for "dual mod" for more information.

    Great job Eric Small on getting the EVO qual for the players of the NE! Your selfless efforts for the community for over 13 years should have never be over looked in the 1st place IMO and i'm glad the NE will have a qualifier for Evo2k13! With that said, rejoice NE as Eric has come to the rescue once again for you guys! With WB7 only 3 weeks away you better get those hotel rooms and pre reg online for the games you'll be trying to qualify for EVO2k13 and for "The FALL CLASSIC"!

    Why are you flying into AC and not Philly? Not meant as a mean question, but AC is really nowhere near Philly in terms of driving.

    Spirit Airlines only flies to ACY and plane tickets are about $110 cheaper if I can get a ride. I figure SOMEBODY has gotta be going from there.

    Where are you flying in from? Reason I'm pointing this out is that geographically AC is close, but you literally need to drive all the way north, go back into greater NJ, and then turn and drive south into Philly.

    Do you have to fly Spirit? Maybe I can help you find a different airline.

    Attention all players if your planning on paying at the door the venue fee will now be $45 at the door the day of the tournament.

    If you come Friday night and pay your venue and sign up for games, than I will still let you pay $40, that's just for Friday night only.

    Also you can save a ton on money and just pre-reg online for $30

    Sorry about doing this last minute :( (we're trying to get pools up online early)

    eric said:

    Ok players if you entering 2012, Umvc3, tekken tag 2, mk9, p4A and kof13, we will be taking registration for those games from 8am-12pm, after 12pm if your not in the line you will not be in the tournament SORRY.

    This must happen this way for everything to run on time.

    Remember you can pre-reg Friday night at the main ballroom door from 8pm - 11pm

    SO IF YOU KNOW YOUR ALWAYS LATE, THAN YOU NEED TO PRE-REG ONLINE ASAP.
