The Aftermath Fighting Session (kind of like an After Party)
Following the tournament, there will be an after-event session (late night fighting game session going very late into the night).

Tournament participants get to play fighting games for free during the aftermath. Non-tournament participants can join in for a one-time $6 fee for the night.

The Session will end around 4am-4:30am for cleanup and closing. Closing will occur around 5am-5:15am (just before the first max departs Gresham Station).

Food & Drinks
Versis has a No Outside Food & Beverage policy as food & drinks are sold at the venue. Water in a see-through container is the one exception. Food & Drink purchased at Versis can be consumed at the gaming stations (but avoid eating food around tournament participants during their matches as that can be rude to competing players).

Tournament Organizer: Fight Night Community (Sam Y will be team lead)

Just a quick reminder about tomorrow’s Street Fighter IV Tournament & Fight Session.

Side Note: for the session, if anyone is willing to bring additional systems (or even just cables and power supplies for 360s), that would be great and help to have more stations going simultaneously.


#3

I got you if you need me, just call me to make sure.


#4

what system is the tournament going to be played on?


#5

Just got your message Nick. Sounds like a deal to me. I’ll bring my PS3 and Asus monitor for casuals or whatever.

Edit: and brackets too


#6

Hey Kurt,

The tournament will be played on 360 since last tournament as well as the fight night sessions have shown that a lot of the SF4 players in the Portland area are for it.

Also, because of our current setup, 360 is the best option for Versis. I just wish it didn’t have the controller changing issues…

IF YOU PLAY FIRST PLAYER IN YOUR MATCH, MAKE SURE TO SIGN OFF THE PROFILE BEFORE DISCONNECTING YOUR CONTROLLER WHEN YOU LEAVE THE STATION!!!

I’m not sure what Northwest Majors is using, but I’m sure most (including yourself) know.

I’m bummed I won’t be able to make it out tonight. I’ve been battling a nasty case of strep throat and today is the first time in 3 days my temp has been below 100 degrees. I look forward to seeing the results.


#8

dang… was really looking forward to seeing you there Slash!

Strep Throat sucks though… Dealt with it a lot growing up. i hope you’ll recover very soon.

Take good care of yourself, man :slight_smile:

I want to thank everyone who made it out to the tournament last night.

I had a great time, personally, and there were quite a few great matches!

I’ll post more details later, but for right now, congratulations to the Top 3!

  1. Lord BBH
  2. Fat Bear
  3. Rayblade X

Full Metal Ross has the brackets and results, look forward to getting those from him :slight_smile: Big thanks to him for helping the tournament run smoothly. Thanks to OMNE and Sam Y for their help with Ross in getting this tournament to run fast and smooth once it got started!

You guys and many others put on an awesome show last night and the fight-night session was great too.

Nice to hear the tournament went good. I do agree with Kurt though, Versis should start throwing some ranbat tournaments. Would definitely be some good stuff


#11

GGs, good tourney, thanks for the good times!

Special thanks to BBH for playing my scrubby ass 25 matches in a row, and Chanchai for hosting the incredible event and our in depth talk afterward.


#12

GG’s everyone, had a great time. Good shit to Sam Y in the finals, sorry for stealing your food money :sad:
