Skullgirls 2013 Tournament Season!!!

keninblackkeninblack Joined: Posts: 3,474
Whats up you cornflakey sons of bitches, with all the hype surrounding Skullgirls, and with all of the recent majors pulling the game in. I would like for this to be the hub for us to talk about all the tournaments, hype, money matches, format, cuddling before and after, etc. Sooo heeeere we go!!!

If you notice a major, invitational, regional, big gathering, that I didn't mention, shoot me a pm. It needs to be big though, I don't care about you having a gathering in your apartment. Also this list will be OFFLINE only. (Sorry Skullbats, I love you though.)

Majors (In order by date):
Winter Brawl 7
When: 2/24-2/25
Where: Holiday Inn Stadium, 900 Packer Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19147
Status of SG: NOT CONFIRMED, however, I'm going to work really hard to make sure a side tournament can take place. If we get the numbers it can happen.

Civil War 5
When: 4/19-4/21
Where: Comfort Inn Midtown. Richmond, Virginia
Status of SG: If we get the numbers, we are there. I talked to the TO (Robin) and if we can get 8-16 people or more the tournament can go. SO COME OUT, AND SUPPORT!

EXTRA NOTE: Pre reg to show the numbers are there, yes, I know it says 360. I've talked to Robin, if the patch has yet to be released on 360 the tournament WILL be ran on PS3. However, if the patch is out on 360 it will be played on 360 no question.

Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament 9 (UFGT9)
When: May 24th-26th
Where: Crowne Plaza Chicago O' Hare, 5440 North River Road, Rosemont, Illinois 60018
Status of SG: MAIN GAME BABY LETS GO! COME OUT AND SUPPORT!!!

Community Effort Orlando 2013 (CEO2013)
When: June 28th-30th
Where: The Wyndham Orlando Resort
Status of SG: Once again, its a main game. Please come out and show up!

Everyone, PLEASE, PLEAAAAAAASE, go out and support these. We need as many people to come out and enter to show that we aren't some poverty community. That we can show up and love our game and not just put money on a donation drive. Let's go!

I'm trying to hit all 4 of these, what are your goals?

    I'd love to hit all of them up... realistically, CW5 and CEO have the better odds, even though if I had to pick only one to go to it'd be UFGT.

    It mostly comes down to $$$ and/or if I can group with people in my area.

    I don't think I can make it for Winter Brawl either way, unfortunately.

    There is nothing in California. I will go to one if there is something close to me.

    Good stuff man, going to 2 as a goal is great.

    Realistically I'll be at Winter Brawl and Civil War for sure, working on CEO and UFGT is a maaaybe.

    Well when is Norcal Regionals? Anyone trying to organize a side tournament there?

    We need to create the forum as a soon as possible to capitalize on the new interests from the donation drive.

    Wrong thread?

    Also, I'm going to see if I can get SG added to my local tournament in July, but I'm not sure if it's a realistic possibility or not.

    Well Norcal regionals is on march 24 and 25. I have no idea if they are doing a side tournament there.

    Okay guys, working through it. Skullgirls is looking more and more probable at Winter Brawl.

    I will keep you all updated.

    I dunno how likely it would be for me to make any of those listed...hoping PowerUP does some SG action. As my Funds this year are pretty low so unless magic happens(SUPER SLIGHT possibility for CEO? MAYBE) , I probably won't be able to do too much...so using what I have, I decided to do what I can and AT LEAST, spread the word on another outlet.

    seems to be catching like wildfire... :D

    I talked to ShinBlanka and he has no initial plans on Skullgirls, unless someone is running something without his knowledge, it's not happening. Obviously, he can change his mind. So maybe the SG will be able to give it some coverage at FR. Regardless I won't be able to attend.
    Don't forget to add EVO

    EVO already has its own thread by Mike Z so I'm not trying to steal that thundaaah. If people want me to add the info I can.

    THANKS SO MUCH! :D


    ALSO! Seems like CEO and UFGT top placers WILL receive seeding points for the EVO bracket. To allow optimal seeding and a smoother ride to the top. Hopefully this can carry over to Winter Brawl, Civil War, or any other events.

    My first thoughts when reading the thread's title:

    "......wait, we have a tournament season?"

    SO psyched.
    Ms. Fortune is great. Everybody likes a little head action every now and then.

    Yeah, I meant the info. I thought this thread was just keeping all the big tourneys dates w/ SG in the first post.

    I'll be at CEO and UFGT for sure. I'm bugging the crap out of the TOs for Texas Showdown and Final Round to try to get it there. Of course, I personally see to it that any tournament in Mississippi has the game, which usually means running it myself. >.>

    I'm already confirmed for Winter Brawl, so if Skullgirls is there I'll obviously enter.

    I'll do my best to make it to Civil War, but I can't make any promises. Don't like pencil me in or anything. But I'll try to make it.

    Well, Texas Showdown has thrown down the gauntlet: If I personally show up to the tournament, then they'll have Skullgirls.

    CHALLENGE ACCEPTED.

    I'd like to attend UFGT 9 and CEO, but since all I've got would go to travel I won't have enough left over to afford a place to stay at (hopefully still enough to compete). If I could find someone willing to put me up or graciously allow me the floor of their hotel room then I would definitely head out. Would be my first major(s) too.

    I would love to attend all of these but I am in a financial rut and it would take the blessings of some money god to get me to any of these.

    Hell, I just want to go to commentate and run every one of these. I would love to do that.

    Well if you're going to Winter Brawl I could definitely use someone to help me run it! :) Also if you could pleeeaaaase bring a setup that would help very much, a TV too but just a PS3 works!
