    I don't think I've ever seen a single person play Injustice at the Gonq. I heard it mentioned a few times though...

    Except for anime and Tekken, and with BBCP that's since it's PS3 only, whereas with Tekken, I think they bring their own consoles.

    People going to want to play KOF tonight? I'm rusty and in need of a fix, plus I know some of you jumped on the holiday Steam sale.

    There's not usually many PS3's at Gonq. When the Tekken guys came out before break, they had to settle for an Xbox. We usually have a PS3 that sees some anime play, but even I usually prioritise bringing a 360 for Guilty Gear because we all have Xbox sticks.

    TOURNAMENT ANNOUNCEMENT:

    When: February 22nd, 2014 starting at Noon

    Where: Algonquin College

    Games: SSFIV 2012, UMVC3, Guilty Gear, BB Chronophantasma and any other games people want to run on the side

    I'll post more details soon including entry fees, payouts and other things. I'll be streaming the event and wouldn't mind some volunteers to help run brackets and commentate on matches for games in which you are knowledgeable. Post here and let me know.

    I'll make a facebook event sometime today hopefully for those who are into that kind of thing. I'll also be making a poster if people could help stick them around their respective schools or whatever.

    Sweet, definitely making it out for that for the BBCP tourney, and obviously if the Tekken guys want to run one, I'll be down for that. Also, the Smash Bros people might want to run their own side tournaments there if they're allowed. If they bring their own setups or whatnot (as they normally do) and potentially have someone helping with their brackets, would anybody running it have any problem with them coming? I'd have volunteered to try and commentate on some BB, but I admittedly kind of assumed Bruce might have (and I really don't mean to make it sound like I'm putting him on the spot).

    This ain't my first rodeo. ;)

    Thanks for the advice though. No one shows up on time that's why you make an early start time. That being said if you aren't registered when I generate the brackets there are no re-dos.

    More feedback is good. Generating more info right now.

    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.
