Just want to add my support for a3 as well. I’m really glad people are making the effort to bring it to evo this year (major fucking props to Sabre and B-izm). I’ll be happy to help run any side tournament for a3… but i think it would be really great if it could be added to the official line up of games. Since other people doing all the work to bring the boards, i don’t think it’d be too hard for EVO staff to help coordinate and give a3 ‘official’ support. I could see a3 getting a HUGE turnout if this happened (100+entrants), especially with japanese players there.
rsigley: Its kind of hard for ECC a3 to get a big turnout when a3 is always called an unofficial game that may or may not happen and its planned at like the last second. I mean, weekly break tournaments are fucking sad, but just because only 12 people show up for marvel 2 (counting myself and i don’t play, and a couple of others who don’t play) doesn’t mean the game wont get a good turnout at a tournament where its officially supported.
Temujin: Long time no see (gonna be even longer cause i wont be at ECC ). Glad to see you’re still playing a3 though!! Good point about the level of A3 play that we’re gonna see at evo. It seems that people see some of the acho matches and think thats the only way the game can be played.
Gandido: When are you coming to NY man? Glad to see you backing a3
I’m really looking forward to some good a3 tournaments this summer.
