    Familyman doing Marvel commentary would actually be amazing.

    Also, a side note, but Bruce busting out that Kijiji ad to advertise an AE tournament is cool to see. Though, if it's somebody else entirely, then huh...

    Huh, well okay then.

    In that case, I don't know if this would interest any of you guys, but you might want to have a look or get in touch or something if you're interested, since I stumbled across this this morning:

    He's clearly trying to bait you out. Just don't do anything unsafe and you'll be fine.

    I actually wasn't trying to get people to go to that one instead of this one. Rather, I was trying to see if anyone that was going to that, would potentially also come over to this one (assuming they're on different dates) to get more AE entrants. Or something like that, or that would make things easier on you. I had good intentions, I swear, lol.

    To be fair, he got his ad up a day before your announcement. Plus he's a big name and all.

    Plus he is running just AE. Who needs all those other fun games to get in the way and cause unwanted problems and hype.

    Edit: Plus it would be a PS3 tournament like EVO.

    Has anyone reached out to him yet to tell him about algonquin and the current community?

    Um, I hate to double post and that, but somebody just brought to my attention that Bytown Brawl is actually the same day as Battle Royale VII, which is over at UofO...and that is having AE, and Injustice (as well as SSBM) there. Granted, with that it costs $20 to enter just 1 console tournament, and the first place prize for those is $50, while the 2nd place price is a $20 Best Buy gift card, but...it might be something to take into account looking at attendance.
  • PritzPritz Seriously?! Joined: Posts: 312
    Wait wait, I have to pay $20 to get into the tournament and second place is a $20 gift card to best buy? Seems legit.

    Hm, maybe I was wrong to think this was a concern? Also Pritz, could you maybe PM me your FB info or something? A couple of the Melee guys have a bunch of questions, and one of them wanted to talk to you to sort of have a better understanding.

    Anytime. I figured I should at least try to help out if I could, even though all I really did was point them to it, and make it known that it's there, haha.

    lol that might've been a concern if anyone was actually planning to go to battle royale.

    I know it's kinda disrespectful, but I feel like someone should just promote this event wherever they see Battle Royale being advertised so that whoever WAS going there will instead come to the better tournament.

    It's funny you say that, because when I mentioned this in the Smash group, I noticed afterwards that someone already posted an ad for Battle Royale so...that might actually semi be happening.

    $20 entry and $50 prize with no mention of a pot to play with the guys I see on a weekly basis? No thanks.

    just more regular meets, gonq is a great start IMO though we can use one or two more meets in a week, cuz the more we play the better we get. however this only can happen if we are motivated(shout outs to vergil) to do so other wise we r doing well with what we got.

    Wow. I definitely want in on this! From what I've seen Ottawa is pretty free so this will be easy money.
    Also, if you need any help I can lend a hand if you would like it. :)

    A league ranbat system or some means of running long sets against various people.
    A recording or testing station/area off to the side dedicated to discussing match-ups and etc,.
    More mini-tournaments. Team-based ones at that.

    Boiling it all down though, I'd call us strong if everyone had a strong familiarity against everyone else's main characters in any game.
    More out of town representation too.

    I don't think ranbats or any other tournament format will help the scene get stronger. It just comes down to every individual doing their part to both participate and get better at fighting games.

    I do agree with the out of town representation though. I'm probably going down to LANETS if anyone wants to carpool at the end of February.

    Okay there is officially going to be a ranbat tomorrow. I'm going back to the bracket style ranbats since the other methods were kind of ass.

    The total from all the ranbats we have done will be used for seeding purposes for Bytown Brawl.

    I think that this problem is a very difficult one indeed. I think its best to just try, and possibly fail, at new things to see what attracts and keeps new players. Getting better is just up to the individual but an embarrassing spot on a tiered system would probably motivate some. Maybe a dedicated website or something...hard to say
