Well, I was pretty dissapointed. I had a good time seeing everyone, but everything else seemed to be a wreck.
The post for this event stated that the room would be bigger than the one at the GWCC, and that it would be “more than enough room” for everyone. Both of these statements were flat-out FALSE. The room was the same size as the GWCC room, and was set up so poorly and overcrowded that people literally couldnt get to setup b or c without stepping in front of set up a or d. I thought that was just incredibly poor planning and judgement. How are you going to run a tournament with out being able to get to the setups without disturbing other games!?
And then, the main issue was the heat. Dear god. Really, I had to pay 10 dollars to go into an overcrowded room with no air conditioning!? It was easily 100 degrees in the room. If I have to pay to play, I better not be sitting in a puddle of everyone’s ball sweat. I really think that the a/c was turned off just to make us buy drinks. That’s some shady shit right there. I had to pay to get in, then pay a buck for a soda?
I would like to thank the people who helped run and manage brackets to make sure games were getting done. Pokchop and anyone else who was helping with that gets a big thank you from me. Also a big thank you to Kiyo and Nam for making sure BB was getting done, as it seemed to be getting neglected by everyone else.
But overall, I left with a sour taste in my mouth and will not be attending any more Revivals. We were promised things we didn’t get, it was uncomfortable, poorly organized, and I didn’t even see the tournament organizer do anything but sign up players, take the money, and watch some games.
Oh yeah, Magnicious, if you give out your number for people to call you because they are running late, make sure 1. You pick up your phone and 2. Your voicemail isnt FULL.
