#2

Are there any prizes to this event?


#3

Prizes are based on pot split… If 50 people show up, its a $500 pot, split $350/$100/$50 for the top placers.

My events tend to be a lot about the AFTER-PARTY. There will be lots of alcohol and food present, so players who are not permitted to drink should be aware of this. We will take car-keys from anyone who drinks, and we won’t be giving alcohol to minors.

We are discussing rule changes for Soulcalibur IV currently.

This event is an 8WayRun.Com Exclusive SC4 Ranking Ladder Event!

The times for the tournaments have been updated…

#5

i might go if mr quotes wants to (and he likes soul calibur!)


#6

fuck that game

hell, fuck both games for that matter

but Crooked Jester is good times, so i’ll be there if all goes well.


#7

You guys finally have an SF game! I’ll try to make it to this… But if I recall correctly, didn’t you guys have weeklies for VF? Why not for SF4/SC4?


#8

A large base of SC4 players are from NYC, and it’s just not feasible to ask them to come out every week.


#9

he just mad cuz sakura sucks :looney:


#10

one of a few reasons


#11

Thanks for your response. It probably sounded like I was proposing a plan to have weeklies. Rather, I was trying to figure out if this was a side-event that was on top of the weeklies. I only read about the weeklies (maybe bi-weeklies) on VF.com a while back, which is why I’m out of the loop.

I’m just glad that there is a large gathering near Rutgers. Hopefully I can make it.


#12

We haven’t done “WEEKLIES” in a few years. We only do “Monthlies” now.

We dropped VF5 from our monthlies a while back due to lack of interest. Now we are just doing SC4 and SF4.


#13

I didnt know if you still make joysticks. I havent seen an update in your site for a while Jaxel. This tournament sounds great. There arent to many in new jersey.


#14

but i thought down back was your favorite direction on the joystick!


#15

fuck that shit i was born to constantly mash down every ambiguous situation


#16

The house fee technically got smaller per game (its $2.50 per game now, instead of $3). I could continue charging $15 per game, but then I would be collecting $6 in house fees, and people who enter two games would be paying $30 per person. By seperating the house free from the tournaments themselves, I only charge a house fee once, thus I am only collecting $5 in house fees, and people who enter two games would only be paying $25 per person. On the whole, I am charging less. Yes, the pots are smaller, but since there are two games, there is actually way more money going around. And as Ramon would say, its a local monthly and the cost is too much.

You guys were paying $15 last month for SC4… if you only enter SC4 this time, its still $15. Yes, the pot is smaller, but remember that if you want to enter SF4 as well, its NOT another $15… its only $10. So you only pay the house fee for the first game, while the house fee for the second game is FREE. On another note… if you come to one of my tournaments as a player, and decide to “boycott” for some reason or another, I WILL require you to pay the house fee; or you will be forcefully removed from my house. Its MY house, and I get to decide who gets in for free, or not.

If you got a problem with this, complain to Ramon for ruining it for everbody. I’m tired of his bitching, while he always tries to play for free; ripping off tournament organizers and forcing me to constantly hunt him down for his entry fee. And I don’t mean the house fee, I mean the ENTRY fee; he’s not just ripping off the tournament organizers, but the players too.


#17

Jaxel tournaments, are HOT if your looking to have fun and chill its more than worth the trip.

Good shit J.


#18

Ok, needs a bit more hype.

Is there a tournament on the same day I dont know about that is detracting from the hype?


#19

Okay… this is the idea we came up with this weekend. During this tournament, we will have a $1 winner-take-all single elimination random wildcard tournament. We are putting a list of games into a hat; games that dont have, or have ever had a tournament scene. When you play your opponents, we pick random games from the hat, and thats what you will be playing in! We’ve come up with a rudimentary list of games; and I’m going to need people’s help in bringing these games/consoles to the tournament…
