    Tell you what. Since I only got paid 50% of the pot for winning tekken 6 last time (aka 50 dollars out of 100 when there were 10 people who were playing at 10 dollars each, when i believe only 80 dollars was paid out in total...), let me enter the ssf4 tournament this coming saturday for free, and I'll be there for sure. I'll still chip in the 5 dollars for the venue fee. Then I'll be there for sure and be able to vouch for what goes down. I have absolutely no chance of winning because I suck ass at SF4 but at least it'll get be down there that saturday to scope out the venue and I'll vouch for you if things go like how they are supposed to.

    I feel like I at least deserve that when the last tournament where it was posted that it was guaranteed 150 for first didn't mention that it was ONLY for SF4, but I failed to mention anything at the time because I didn't start playing video games for money, but it coves my expenses at least for entry and travel and some food. But anyway.

    Deal?

    Well I didn't really have an issue with not getting the full payout, like I said I don't really play for the money, but it's nice to get my money back for entering and driving to the southside from where I live is a bit of a trip. I'm pretty good about stuff like that because I know how tough it can be starting out, and I never even mentioned how much I got to anyone because honestly it wasn't a huge deal at the time. But if you gave me free entry this weekend in my mind it would make up for it. I'm just looking for a clear yes or no on this one.

    Everything was fine at the tournament that you ran so there wasn't any real issue until the 2nd one. I'm sure people can understand if you had an emergency and had to leave but whoever was left in charge didn't know what to do after you left obviously, because the people who did show up couldn't even get into the front door. And it's not like there was any confusion about it because I know Aki (aka Zangief4Life) was at the first tournament and knew what building it was.

    And like I said, since I have 2-3 hour to travel to get down there, I'm sure glad that I didn't go last weekend for nothing. I know even though some of the people who did show up live much closer than I do, it's still a hassle to make time for the event, pay for gas to get there, etc, etc, and then have nothing to show for it.

    To be honest, there were 2 reason why I ended up not coming last weekend. One, because the tournament was never posted on the tekken web site, and two, because I was afraid that people who came for tekken last time would be unwilling to drop another 10 bucks just to give to me again. No one who entered T6 were serious tournament players and I just couldn't even see 10 people showing up again for Tekken just to give me their money again. No one else I talked to seemed interested in going when they could just stay at home and play but that's just how the Tekken scene in chicago is.

    So anyway let me know, if I could get free entry into the tournament for SSF4 this coming weekend (May 1) and everything goes smothly then I'll do my best to get your name off of the blacklist here because I think the tournaments you are running have a lot of potential but I don't want to waste my time giving up a saturday and driving all the way down to south side chicago for nothing, especially when there are so many other offers on the table of things I could be doing on a Saturday, but it's important for me to see other tournament operators in my area get off the ground.

    you know what intresting....i apologize....for a lack of communication...and every one still try to rip like im trying to scam people....

    to Bisonopolis

    syxx or j-money didnt say that they werent backing me...WERENT YOU AT THE FIRST TOURNEY AND IF SO.....DID it SEEM LIKE I was TRYING TO SCAM PEOPLE....or maybe that was someone else....

    but people are entitled to what they think....


    to shiryu22

    Heres the deal... we had that event planned before the one sat.....

    you know whats really sad every one acting like SH#t dont happen and there perfect..... no body wants to hear what I gotta say....

    Im explain this last time.....

    1. Set up early because i gOT CALLED ION EARLY FOR THE MILITARY...(LEFT MY STAFF DIDNT KNOW, THEY DIDNT OPEN THE BARS)

    2.) CAR ACCIDENT

    3. BROKEN PHONE...

    4. ARRIVED AT 5PM AND ONLY TO FIND LITTLE KIDS AT THE BUILDING...

    5. STILL WAITING ON ALL STATE TO SEND A CLAIM ADJUSTER....

    6. LASTLY AGAIN FOR THE FINAL TIME I APOLOGIZE.....

    Bisonopolis is from New York. He wasn't at your Chicago tournament. It sounds to me like you were reaching. Yes, shit happens, believe me, I know shit happens. In the future, if people still come to your events, use Tonamento if you have an internet connection on your laptop. If not, just use Tio. This way you can track all of the money coming in. NEVER make two different sheets for money. Sheets get lost, and no one's memory is THAT good.

    Also, don't go blaming other people for your mistakes. Bracket runners SHOULD NOT BE HANDLING MONEY. If it's YOUR EVENT, YOU HANDLE ALL MONEY. Simple as that.

    Oh yeah and AuhsojSivart will tell you I've been on the bum end of a deal, at the end of last year I went to some Tekken tournament in Indiana. This guy was running a tournament for the first time, and I think the turnout was much less than what he expected. I think at the most 15 people showed up to play. He wasn't even there when we got there after I drove all the way to NW Indiana. I met up with Josh there and eventually we got ahold of the guy who was going to run the tournament. He was running late but we did what we could to get ourselves as well as our systems and TVs set up over there.

    When all was said and done, I ended up winning. The tournament had a guaranteed payout of like 150 or 200, but since hardly anyone showed, as a sign of good faith he put like 50 bucks into the pot out of his own pocket. On top of that he spent a few hundred bucks to rent out the venue for a few hours to run the actual tournament. So knowing that what he ended up having to pay out of pocket, I accepted a much lower payout for the tournament, which was like 60-80 bucks I believe. Pretty bad deal but at the same time I never mentioned this to anyone outside of a couple people. I think we heard from the guy running the tournament like 1 time after that but then he disappeared after that. It's a damn shame when people are having trouble getting off the ground, but being a tournament orginizer myself, I know what it's like to go through the trouble of setting up an event and running it perfectly, but having less than a great turnout. And I know what it's like paying money out of my own pocket just to get people to show up, as the last big event I ran got around 40-50 people at the cost of me putting up around 300 dollars out of my own pocket into pot bonuses. It's hard sometimes and I think that you can hit a snag but you just gotta pull through and hope for the best sometimes.

    I withdraw my request for Illumation to be placed on the list. He ran a good tourney today; everything was on time. You'll have to ask Big Marcus and Scrimples about payout, though, since my humble 7th place finish didn't warrant any of the pot.
    Blah Blah Blah I am an insightful person. Here is my post.

    Illumination more than made up for his absense last weekend by offering free entry to several people who showed up the event only to find a locked building. He was just a victim of circumstance and what happened was out of his hands for sure. Excellent tournament yesterday btw.

    I'm gonna clue in anyone who posts on this thread about something I've been thinking ever since this man started posting in this thread.

    If you are responding to being called out on some shady shit, then you need to realize that it's because grown men who can read are concerned about financial matters (most likely). If you can't organize a sentence or take the time to spell properly, what makes you think there won't be people who read your replies that simply add you to their own mental list of organizers to avoid? The way I see it, this is a matter of business for most anyone who would be defending an accusation. As such, you should be making an attempt to look professional in the eyes of the community. After all, you came here to defend yourself to the community in the first place.

    p.s. How is Mike "Jinmaster" Brandt not on this list? If anyone would like, I can go dig up results threads and testimonies from entire communities of players he's screwed over in the past?

    Since you already have references and sources, I'd go ahead and post them up. It'd make things simpler and easier for everyone, especially Bisonopolis.

    I'm in the process of sending a PM to Bisonopolis right now. It's taking a long time to compile ALL of what I will be submitting, and I'd rather not turn this thread into a debate on questionable matters. Just going to be including verifiable facts for my submission. I really think the only reason his name isn't up here already is because nobody feels like taking the time to dig up all the info. necessary for it to happen, because he has still been responsible for legit events as well.

    I have never actually witnessed Jinmaster "screwing" communities. I've been to many of his tournaments, and EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM was run extremely poorly... but I do not think running a tournament poorly is a reason to be added to the list. Unless he screwed communities over by stealing money, or anything major like that, then I don't think he should be on this list.

    Edit: Posted on the " GAMME OVER" thread as well!

    SRK Community, Bisonopolis,
    I know this whole GAMME thing is done and believe me that I am not the person to keep things going. I do not want to Derail this thread more-so. I am probably going to be a part of the GOO-CCT. I just have a few questions! This is probably not the thread to ask so I apologize in advance for adding petro to the fire!

    However, I have a really bad taste in my mouth knowing that I had an entire trip planned for this tournament alone. Not only did I purchase Disney World tickets and Universal tickets and booked hotel etc..etc.. but I also had some buddies of mine visiting from Miami to come watch a " real big tournament!" These buddies have nothing to do with Fighting games or anything, they just wanted to see what this hype is all about!

    Now that we got that out of the way.....Is anybody going to talk to this Manny guy? Like say maybe the Cannon brothers or Mr. Wizard or somebody? I just ask because it's seems like Manny/GPX wants to get away with this somewhat on the down-low! If this guy is at MWC, then somebody needs to have a serious talk with him about how he...hmh....ROYALLY FUCKED OVER ALOT OF PEOPLE! I mean, not just money wise, (which is a huge deal on it's own) but also scheduling. I mean, I could be at MWC right now if it weren't for this. I could have booked shit for Devastation if it weren't for this.

    Is this guy really going to argue with a few key people and walk away like nothing happened?????

    As stated before, I do not want to start anymore arguing nor any salty situations, I just want for Manny/GPX to realize that what has happened here is nothing to walk away from so easily.

    Well Inkblot added him to this list and at this point I can't disagree with that decision. I know that a lot of people had at the very least their tournament fee's refunded through paypal but I'm not sure what can be done outside of that. It's really terrible that you and many other people put so much into planning for GAMME. I myself even took time off from work because I was supposed to be going down to Florida to help run the SSF4 brackets and now I've lost that money completely. The only thing that I can think of people doing is maybe taking legal action. But even with that I have no idea if that route holds any validity at all. I know that Keits will be at MWC but from what I know Manny and Keits are friendly so I wouldn't imagine anything serious getting accomplished. If I can think of any other ways that you can all get your money back believe that I'll be the first person to let you know.

    I don't see the issue with charging people a base $5 for coming to a tourney regardless of venue renting on the Blanka guy one. $5 is nothing and it's alot of work to run a tourney. So is everyone supposed to do everything for free? Weeks of planning, running brackets, providing equipment, etc. for nothing? For the community, so then what is the community doing for the people that are making all this happen?

    LOL, how dare you charge me 5 bucks when I just won a pot of 200 for the event you put the time into making possible?

    Are you talking about blanka707? I am more than happy to fill you in in detail with the shady things that he's done (even something unrelated to tourneys), but to keep it short, money he allotted for going towards renting the room did NOT go to the room. On top of this, he got the room for free, then lied to us saying that he didn't - after this came to light, he claimed he would get a receipt from the venue. After talking to the venue, it turned out Blanka was going to drop by AFTER THE FACT, donate the money HE WAS PLANNING TO POCKET to the venue, and then get a receipt, which he would show us.

    Feel free to PM me if you want any more information, but I suggest you read the thread more carefully first.

    And regarding "what is the community doing for the people organizing tournaments?" - as a tournament organizer myself, I find joy in people coming together and playing fighting games. Being able to facilitate that is joy enough for me. Meeting people, bodying cats / getting bodied, etc is a fun bonus.

    I agree, it's about bringing together the community and seeing people have fun but it still has to be professional in the sense that people need to be paid for their time and effort. It's not like homeless people are coming to tourneys. So if say EVO makes an extra grand with all considered they should distritbute the remaining amount back to the attendees since all fees have been covered and the only reward should be the players' gratitude. No one would run tourneys if that was expectation.

    The Blanka707 should have just came clean and said this is work and the 5 goes towards that and those that helped end of story. It didn't need to become an elaborate scheme. And often times people that just do it because it's for the fun of all, don't weigh all the variables in and run a sloppy tournament in the end. Maybe the Blanka707 guys is shady in general but IMO he shouldn't have to lie, just tell it is and tell the players if they don't like they can do it. Why else don't more good to top players run tourneys? Because they don't want hassle even though they would be generating their own revenue.

    If we want this seen to be recognized a professional form of competition there should be no need for people to just volunteer. If someone helps me run a tourney I pay them. If it was a good tourney why would people be upset about giving $5 to the TO for their efforts?

    Most tourneys charge a min. of 10 bucks to get in and I would be naive to think that all of that goes to the venue.

    So, PrimeTimeGamers apparently texted a group of people about his upcoming tournament in Lakewood, CA on the 22nd. These people, however, never gave him their number.

    When several people asked him about how he got their number, he didn't answer, and when pushed further, he deleted his own thread. http://shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=237218 (It's gone now, obviously, but it was in the Tournaments and Events section.)



    HOWEVER, I've been to one of his tournaments and had a very good time. I didn't notice anything shady and it was well run.

    I wouldn't say to put him on the list but he's somebody to watch.

    suddenly doubling all of the ranbats points for two weeks without warning except the first place player (who is the only one ahead of him in ranbat points). shaaaaaaaaaady.

    This is actually like 2-3 weeks late but better late then ever.

    Never go to a tournament with KOOPA1981 http://shoryuken.com/members/koopa1981/ involved. Ripped off players, wouldn't give back money, didn't give refunds, took brackets away during tournament, didn't know shit, admitted to not knowing what to do, pretty much told us in our face that we weren't gonna get the money he took back, let people with drugs in (seriously there was a spare room where his stuff was and his friends were back there smoking), etc this list goes on and on seriously.

    Was more of a local tourny but for anyone who visits and if this guy tries anything again avoid him. He disappeared for awhile but recently has resurfaced trying to get back in with the community. He is blacklisted by the locals fyi. His resurfacing is the only reason why I decided to finally put this in here.

    PZ at it again. I think it warrants some more looking into first but things don't look good.

    Fixed the Gamewars location. I didn't realize I put NY instead of FL.


    And the DiZE LAN issue's been mostly resolved. The issue seems to be just a big misunderstanding and they're most certainly on watch. They screw up again and they're on the list for good.

    im a local and i just got into the scene of SF4 but they are having another tournament since they are on watch id thought id let u know
    all the money is going to the winner "no Venue fee"

    The list has been edited. Since the owner of DiZe LAN didn't respond to Watts messages and seems to be ducking him they've been added to the promoters to avoid.



    May god have mercy on their souls.


    haha

    Thats not true. DFC SLayer did respond and Watts dropped it. You can even ask Watts.

    you have to understand that his tournaments are a one man show hosted in his house and its hard to be on top of srk pms the day of a tournament when everything he sets up is on his own.

    you're only one person and i, among all of san diego and a good amount of players from socal/la/oc can vouch that cody is a great tournament host. yes its tragic that you came from out of town and missed out but lets be honest you didn't fly out to socal only to go to one tournament hosted at someone's house.

    I hope you understand that most people here are indifferent to that cause of the way he behaved with the community.
    I know its common tradition to usually talk only good stuff about people who pass away, but the truth is that this community can't really forget what happened last year.

    If you feel sorry about it, then I guess you could actually continue Many's doing and try to bring Gamme to life.
    Until then, I don't think we should remove Gamme from this list. Not tryin to hate, but Im sure someone is gonna bring up the idea to take him off the list cause of that.
    If there are tourneys in heaven, I'd tell them to review Many's tourneys.

    First and foremost...J.D go fuck yourself. That is the most douchebag heavy post I have read all year. Congratulations.

    On a brighter note Manny DID NOT pass away. Some moron hacked into his FB, twitter, and myspace accounts and faked his death.

    So J.D now you have the opportunity to contact Manny directly and tell his exactly how you feel. :rolleyes:
