Fap


#3

how is the kof scene over in michigan? is it worth the drive from chicago?


#4

Yaaaaaaaaaaaasssss

EVERYTHING GETS FUCKED!!!


#5

We do have players, but I don’t know that I could recommend you coming from Chicago JUST for KoF. I know some of the Console Combat guys are planning to come but I don’t know if any of their KoF players are. Also Banana Ken may come, but if he does it will be extremely short notice.


#6

I have arrived via SRK form. Prepare for despair.


#7

A lot of people RSVP 'd on Facebook


#8

Yeah our community is very Facebook oriented


#9

bumpage


#10

In there


#11

Going if I can get off work.


#12

Over 100 RSVPs on Facebook. This is going to be big, people.


#13

[LEFT]Hey everyone, just a note about consoles.[/LEFT]

[LEFT]Most of the tournament setups are going to be Xbox 360s, including the stream station. However Dead State Pavillion, who runs the tournaments for Youmacon, are going to be in attendance and providing some PS3 setups for us to use. [/LEFT]

[LEFT]Just be aware that if you have to play on 360 for whatever reason you may have to borrow someone elses stick/pad or converter. [/LEFT]

[LEFT]Also the entire Mortal Kombat tournament will be run on PS3, since the 360 version of the game has issues when it’s disconnected from Xbox Live.[/LEFT]


#14

—SCHEDULE CHANGE—
Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition 2012 will now start at 5pm

The chief of staffing at the venue dropped on us yesterday that we need to wrap up by 8pm, we don’t really know how much leeway we have here and we’re trying to work some things over, but to be safe we’re going to start AE earlier and run it alongside Marvel.

We apologize for the inconvienece and short notice.

Once in the Student Center building there are stairs and elevators to take up to the ballroom on the second floor. Make sure you enter from the front of the building too,


#16

What’s the cutoff times for tournament signups? 15 minutes to…? 30?


#17

We’ll be taking signups for the games all day, we’ll announce a last call probably around 15 minutes before the start.


#18

Well I’ll be cutting it close for MK9 but I should make it.


#19

We are godlike. Thanks to everybody who came out!


#20

Thanks for everyone who came out, it was a great event and a lot of fun.
