Battlefield Arcadia #1: Tournament Mode (Kings Games) 07/26/09


#1

Okay guys, I finally got back to the ARC and it’s 2:30am in the morning. I’ll post the top 8 of both tournaments. A copy of the results will be posted on Empire Arcadia’s Tournament results section.

Street Fighter 4

1st. Champion Sanford “Santhrax” Kelly (Empire) 10pts.
2nd. LI Joe 6pts.
3rd. Chris Hu 4pts.
4th. Kreymore (Empire) 2pts.
5th. Alejandro “Zohta” Chavarriga 1pt.
5th. Evil Rashaan (Empire) 1pt.

Notables:
**7th. **Tenchi (N/A)
7th. SNAKE (N/A)

A total of 42 Players entered the tournament. The tournament out was a success for our first Street Fighter 4 tournament. We look to push the tournament upstairs in two weeks were we can comfortably fit 150 plus players. Stay tuned for our next announcement.

Blaz Blue
1st. Champion Alzarath 10pts.
2nd. Twilight 6pts.
3rd. Mynus 4pts.
4th. Biscuit 2pts.
5th. Finest MGV 1pt.
5th. Shine 1pt.

Notables:
7th. Javier Sandoval (N/A)
7th. Jimmy Moreno (N/A)

The Blaz Blue community was a very interesting community to say the least. 34 players came out at a last minute notice. Which was a surprise. Next time we will work out a better PS3 and Xbox 360 cross community tournament. We don’t like to leave out communities of players that are on one system so we are already brainstorming how we can integrate the platforms and the players better next time. The same goes for Street Fighter 4.

We look forward to your next visit to our bi-weekly Battlefield Arcadia event at Kings Games. Until then.

Grats to Sanford for winning first in SF4 and Alcatraz for taking 1st in BB XD!

I missed the SF4 tourney so I couldn’t say whaddup to my folk in that community, but grats to the top placers Joe, Rashaan, Krey etc.

I was happy to catch the final couple sets of the BB tourney when it winded down to the top 8. It was great meeting mgvfinest finally and his pals, Alzarath again and the rest of the CTF BB heads there are mad chill Biscuit, Mynus, Shine, Blazue, DaiandOh and the rest.

So far I’m loving the NYC BB community I’m gonna try to be as active as ever…I wish I got to enter though : /.

Oh yeah shoutout to Leo and Homalon for making it out here…good sh** F*CK BRAWL! <3

And last but not least shoutout to Empire Arcadia for making it happen…thanks Triforce and Kaiba you guys rock!

I taped Grand Finals btw for the BB tourney if ppl wanna see Rachel vs. one her worst matchups.

Just got home after leaving my house at 3:30 pm…

First off good shit to Alzarath!!!
Good shit to all the BB players who supported the scene and came through on short notice.

The tournament should not have taken nearly as long.
I’m sure a few of the players would be more than willing to bring their systems if that’s what’s needed.
Ps3 seems like the preferred console for the game.

As for the brackets. You guys have a computer, get one of the tournament bracket maker programs and use it.
All you need to do is click here and there.
Of course I’ll be up for helping, anything to get things run smoothly.

Good shit to Alzarath for beasting so hard and getting that platter 2 days in a row!! U got dat fight money my nigga!! Still salty I couldn’t run it back wit u in GF.

Good shit to Twilight for making that comeback in LF and sticking wit ur char even tho ppl hate on u. With that said FUCK Nu!!!

Good shit to Sanford for winning SF4.

GGs everyone I played, good shit to the cf heads I havent seen in a while :o

Glad ppl came out to support.


#6

hahahaha WTF?

Good tournament, I had fun for the few hours I was there. Moving the event upstairs is definitely a great idea. Just one question, how did you guys actually run the tournament? I never once saw brackets, and Joe had to play 4 people
one after the other at the end. Unless you played every other bracket besides him
so he could run a gauntlet? I don’t really understand that one.

And as for running a tournament on August 9th, I wouldn’t really suggest it because there’s another tournament that was posted a few weeks ago that most attendees from this event already said they were going to (http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=199017). Maybe the week after might be better?


#8

^ did you try reading the first post? 42 entries. not bad for a first sf4 tourney in bk I guess. anybody record the finals? it was too crowded I couldnt see anything.


#9

Oh i thought that was for BB. sorry


#10

the tourney at Play N Trade wasnt going on so entries might have been less if it would

besides the play n trade tourney was posted LONG before the next one was announced


#11

I got them. Finals will be coming up tonight or tomorrow. Other random matches we were able to get / doc of the entire event overall should be done by the end of the week.

If I understand properly, Empire Arcadia will be working with Frame-Advantage to have a direct feed recording setup and a live stream at the next tournament. Get hype!


#12

This tournament was the truth im def. Coming back in two weeks!!!


#13

**FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE MET ME AND HAVE NOT ITS ERIN :wgrin:

I JUST THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND HOPE TO MAKE THIS NEXT ONE EVEN BIGGER!!!

WE HANDED OUT 740 IN CASH BUT I SAY LETS HIT THAT 2000 AND PACK UPSTAIRS2!!!

LOL THIS TIME WE WILL HAVE THE TOURNY PROGRAM AND WE WILL HAVE THE EVENT WITH MORE TVS UPSTAIRS INSTEAD (LOL DIDNT THINK IT WOULD JUMP OFF THIS WELL)

I FEEL THE LOVE THE COMMUNITY SHOWED TO EMPIRE AND TO KINGS GAMES WE WILL KEEP SHOWING IT BACK…ENJOY THE SNACKS:lovin:…SEE YOU GUYS ON THE 9TH AND THANKS FOR JUST BEING THE CROWD PLEASERS YOU ARE!!!


#14

You guys shouldnt run it on the 9th…sjc has been pretty adamant about runnin castle golf on the 9th for nearly a month now…it’ll be fucked up to even consider spliting up the community for such a decision…thats what you advoate right? Unity?


#15

good shit.after the tourny was godliek when we went to coney island.i say the bb tourny should just be runed on ps3 since 97% of the players have ps2/ps3 stick adn play on ps3 pad. o and i let borrow my stick way to much in this tourny. got frustrated after a while. next time im only gona lend it to ppl that i no or if i dont know u im chargin fuck that lol.niggaz needs to buy there own stick when coming to tournys real talk. other then that was fun. see u guys this sat at the pnt ranbat


#16

I agree. We’ll be looking into this seriously though.

Also for good consideration, this tournament was put together by Emperorshand. I just sanction the event because I’m the boss and I have to make sure that things are ran well and done properly. By running the event myself I can only blame me, because at the end of the day it will not be the Emperorshand that gets in trouble it will be me. I came to this event because I wanted to make sure that our first impression would be a good one and I wanted hands on experience in the event to make sure that the Empire did everything in it’s power to make the event an enjoyable experience for you all.

Although our next event has been posted, it is tentative, as there are new issues that have risen involving the community where I have to address and solve before making anything conclusive. If you have any questions you can post them to the Emperorshand and he will get back to you on them as quickly as possible. I look forward to seeing you all at the next event.

All Hail Arcadia.

well we do want unity but i also want to provide consistency for our community. If we continuously alter our every 2week event for other organizers it creates a loss in foundation. We will always do our best to provide the best tournaments for the community of gamers and after meeting you guys i have to say that if we could bring smiles on an event that was kind of crazy (it was our first so it happens) than on the next event we should bring even more smiles:)
we do not want to devide you guys we just want to run organized events

Tourney was fun. Kind of crowded but cool nonetheless. Good to see everyone there. The Boroughs is always hype.

Everyone is going to Castle Golf on the 9th. It’s not a good idea to have a tourney anywhere on that date, especially since SJC already advertised it a month ago.


#19

im pretty sure someone at this tournament said

“The community has spoken, the community get its”

a lot of ppl have said theyll be goin to CFN so it wont hurt to change this for a saturday for just ONE time at least…just my 2 cents

I spoke with Johnny Cage and after careful consideration of both the community and the patrons of our first event we are put in a dilemma where we are obligated to the community on Sunday August 9th 2009 but we’re also in the way of the community for Street Fighter 4. I have spoken to the Emperorshand and other members who make up the council for this matter and I have decided the following.

Our scheduled event will continue at the date set however the games that we will provide will differ. For gamers who wish to compete in Street Fighter 4, we have compromised this unique situation for 1 time only to accommodate in fairness and in good will with the community to continue our tradition in unifying the greater gamer community. We suggest that you go to CFN to compete in Street Fighter 4. In replacement we will be running a KoF12 and Smash Brothers Brawl Tournament.

This provides a service to the gaming community that CFN is currently not providing. More gamers will come out and everyone will be catered to. This is the best strategy that we have and I will see to it that the Empire sticks to it. In the interest of the Blaz Blue gamers that we promised to hold a tournament for at Kings Games, if more than 12 people show up we will host a small tournament for the game as you all requested. However we suggest that you join the bulk community and go to CFN.

Thank you for your time.

Empshand you have your orders.
