    I can't find imegabeast anywhere. Just add everyone in the Ottawa SF4 group.

    Forest, I think you just have a backlog of notifications; no one has posted there in 18 days.

    THERE IS NO GONQ Tonight! We got canned at the last minute because 22 Minutes booked the entire building.

    Bar Fights
    We will soon begin talks on whether it's possible for us to host games in The Observatory, which sells food and alcohol.
    We don't know yet if buying something is necessary, but, we're starting a poll just in case.
    Will you buy food/alcohol? http://strawpoll.me/3570244

    Update on Ranbats
    Our first league-format ranbat will be ending on Feb 19 and we're looking for some feedback.
    How do you like it so far? http://strawpoll.me/3570293
    Do people want to split the league into A and B divisions? http://strawpoll.me/3570332

    Rules if it were to happen:
    - We will use the results of this ranbat to determine placement
    - The top 6 players will enter A league while the rest enter the B league
    - At the end of each ranbat, #5 and #6 in the A league will swap places with #1 and #2 in the B league
    - At the end of each ranbat, #3 and #4 in both leagues will play each other to determine who enters the A league
    - This ranbat has 15 participants. We're expecting slightly more people for the next one.

    Here are the number of matches left in the ranbat (keep in mind that new participants may jump in):
    Youssef - 3 matches left
    Will - 4 matches
    Adam, Bruce - 6 matches
    Kevin, Patrick, Kingsley - 7 matches
    Moe, Yang, Nick - 8 matches
    Joey - 10 matches
    Julian - 11 matches
    HotToy, Axandre - 12 matches
    Andy - 14 matches
    Forrest - 15 matches

    Hit this link to the spreadsheet for more details http://waa.ai/4h1M

    Thanks guys for the feedback! AKA chime in with your 2 cents or I'll ask you in person.

    Does anyone else notice that it is impossible to find Marvel comic books these days in corner stores or drugstores? I was in Chapters and I saw Simpsons comics and other cartoonish ones and of course the anime books but no new issues of X-Men or Spider-man. In the corner stores and drugstores they have gaming magazines and fashion magazines but not any comics at all.

    I know Disney bought Marvel recently...are they no longer selling comics? Or maybe I need to go to one of those nerdy stores that only sells comics on Bank St.?

    You could probably find them at Chapters. I'm not sure on Coles, but I know a few Chapters' I've been to have had whole sections for comics.

    There's a comic book store somewhat close to gonq off of baseline and clyde. Even an anime store right next to it.

    Yo, nice. I've been meaning to see if I can pick up Roberta's Blood Trail somewhere, but been too lazy to look.

    And on that Battle Royale thing, the poster totally got me all confused at first and had me thinking it was at Carleton or U of O randomly, lol. I can totally bring a setup with Xrd (minus Leo)/TTT2/Ultimax/BBCP if needed.

    I'm finally learning how to Mahvel...for the 20th time, haha. But this time I mean it! Still trying to find characters I like though. Storm on point of course, but besides Storm I donno.

    Thanks for the tips on comic books.

    I kept trying and giving up on Marvel after realizing there wasn't a fitting 3rd character to throw in with X-23/C.Viper to get a "Team White Girls" thing going (since Trish felt kinda meh, and I wasn't planning on using Phoenix or Morrigan) and not wanting to put the effort in to find a decent X-23 team since Nova/Doom/X-23 seems a bit limited.

    Gonq Weekly Meet-ups
    Thursday at 5pm - 12 am +
    Student Commons, 2nd Floor above the Starbucks
    We have both rooms this week. As usual, please bring monitors, controllers, and setups.

    We'll have more stations for Street Fighter than usual (without infringing on other games) to accomodate ranking battles. A big thank you to Joey, Andy, Justin, and Kingsley for bringing their setups.

    Pricing
    For this event, we're adhering to Battle Royale's standard $10 one-time entry fee. The venue fee for console fighters is covered by the general admission ticket for Battle Royale. There may be a discount for those who bring equipment (pending).

    So it will be $10 to enter a tournament and another $27.49 for general admission + bring our own setups?

    So a total of $37.49 + brining setups for Battle Royale SF4?
    (http://www.battleroyale.ca/br8/)

    And do we have to sign the waiver form?

    So. From what I understand from the console side if things, (Fighting games) BattleRoyale has a $10 venue fee plus the $10 entry fee for each main tournament you enter, or $5 for each side tournament.
    The entry fees go towards the pot + pot bonuses. The venue fee goes towards the costs of running the tournament. Any profits (if any) from venue are going to charity.

    This is pretty usual for fighting game tournaments.

    Blown up explanation for scrubs:
    So if you were entering ultra (main tourney) it would be 10 venue + 10 tournament entry. For a total if $20. If you also entered Arcana Heart+side tourney) you would pay an extra $5. For a total of $25. The $10 from ultra entry goes to the ultra prize pool. The 5 from ah goes to the arcana heart pool. The 10 venue goes towards venue cost.

    If you want to play some weird PC games you have to pay the full battleroyale fee. This covers your venue into both console and PC gaming. This doesn't apply to most of us.

    For anyone who was looking to jump on it, digital copies of Guilty Gear Xrd are 60% off on PSN from today until Monday. That's $20 for PS3 and $24 for PS4. Cheaper and more immediate than waiting on that "deal" that will never come. (You know what I'm talking about. ;D)

    EDIT: Also, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown with all the DLC packs for $6 (80% off). Come play with AAK and I, and level up that yomi.

    I'm so tempted to pick up one of those 3rd Strike Online's since it's $3 and $4. Though, no real idea what the difference between normal and complete is.

    There had better be Mahvel this Thursday! I found a team! Get rekt Ottawa!

    Why not put the profits from the tournament towards funding for Ottawa events like buying new consoles or monitors?

    I am thinking about pre-ordering MKX. Are any other Ottawa players doing the same? Aris from AvoidingthePuddle.com is really into MK and since I watch him stream so much I have gotten interested.

    There were hardly any Mahvel players at the last Ottawa tournament. I wonder if there will be some this time?

  • LivewireXLivewireX Joined: Posts: 5,635
    I might, but considering how long it took MK9 to load whenever you started it up on PS3, I'm curious on how long it'd take for MKX. Plus, I've only got 30 gigs on my 80 gig PS3 and am pretty much broke so it's tough to say. Maybe if I can land some work.

    As for Marvel? I'll enter if someone pays my entry fee and lets me use their stick, lol.

    Shoutouts to karlsson95 for bodying my ass and making me salty. It's good cause I need something to get me motivated again before Toryuken and Canada Cup.

    Didn't mean to make it sound like you didn't earn the win cause you counter picked. I need to hold that L to quote Mr. Ross.

    Also amazing set vs Mo! Last game last round was awesome.

    So gonq is gonna be open tonight?

    I played Julian yesterday and got bodied 5-0. I have to say, his Cammy is pretty damn good. I also have to say I suck at SF4.

    AAK told me there will probably be no Tekken Tag 2 at the tournament tomorrow...pretty discouraging. I might still go, but I lost confidence in my SF4 skill, I might not enter it. Heck, maybe I should just stay home. But, I will still go, probably.
