Thanks for showing up, and with Tekken 6 on the way soon (This being the game KC is strongest in) we will be restarting the ranbat season with pot payouts for next time, beginning in October. Featured games will be : 4, BB, 6BR, and GGAC.
Also, we’re in the midst of planning a major… I’d like to get a spot at the OP convention center. STL is doing their thing in November so ours will be in either December, or January. I’ll make sure it doesn’t conflict with anyone. A lot of my own personal money (and some of our crews) will be going into the guaranteed prize pots. KC has NEVER had a major, and being so central, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t. Our region deserves another one. (STL does a great job with theirs, but we’ve been wanting to throw one in KC for the last 5 years… this year, “The year of the Fighting game” is the perfect time to start planning it)
The skinny on the early cut out : One of the owners came up to me mid-way through the tournament and told me that he had accidentally planned a magician to come in and do a bday show for the other owner of the place, starting at 7 PM. The normal cut-off time for us is 8, so I was a bit startled by the news. He did NOT demand we stop, in fact he was totally willing to allow us to finish, but I didn’t think the remaining tournaments were really hype, or that anyone really cared that much anyway. He DID promise some kind of ‘way of making it up to us’. I’m assuming this means the TV will be in and running soon. So, look forward to that.
To the guys who I played in the tournament, good shit, I’ll give personal props later.
And to the ones wondering when the next event will be, we’re looking at sometime late September, but I will work with what the majority wants. I know that some people can only make it on certain dates, and whatever the majority wants, is what we will work toward.
Thanks again for the continuing support fellas. See ya next time.
