Fredericksburg, VA -- Fight Thread
#2

SfxT should be 1v1 not 2v2, is there anyway you could add it to the venue. It’s not worth the pot and 2v2 only shows cooperative competition. Let’s see how people hold up in singles.


#3

If it’s good enough for Evo, it’s good enough for us. Most of the players still prefer AE anyways.


#4

…and what about the players that prefer SFxT? :confused:


#5

If enough people are willing to sign up for a 1v1 bracket then we will obviously run one. We aren’t going to plan on it, though. A large majority of players prefer AE over SFxT.


#6

You should gear to appeal for all players, not just a narrow field. 2v2 is fine and I understand where you are coming from on the EVO stance but I have already gotten a large review of people WHO ARE looking for 1v1 match ups.


#7

Moved the date of our tournament to the 18th to avoid Guild Wars/Summer Jam conflicts. Added 1v1 at the behest of several community members.


#8

Possible Persona 4 Arena side tourney if there’s enough interest?


#9

I’d definitely be up for a P4 arena tourney!


#10

Event has been cancelled.


#11

I’ll be there guise


#12

Good to know the day before lol…
