#5

CALLING ALL COUNTRIES!

We are entertaining the idea of doing a Marvel 5-on-5 this year as well!

Thoughts?


#6

Yessir, we are strictly xbox.


#7

It would be nice to have a 5v5 Marvel tournament as supporting event for AE.

In reality though you would have to limit the teams to like 4. USA, Japan, Canada and another (Mexico, EU/AU or a World All-stars). And you’ll have to get the highest quality of players for each team so it doesn’t water down the tournament and just be a total blow out.

Maybe have a USA vs. The World if the 5v5 doesn’t happen?

2/3 per match to extend the tourny?

Unlike AE where all over the world and little known communities like Kuwait and Dominican Republic (two teams I hope you guys will have this year) can compete with the best of them, Marvel is mainly NA with some other pockets around the world.

If you guys can somehow get KuSORU to go to the event that within itself will generate a lot of talk. And there’s a chance too he’ll come if you give KuSORU the title of a captain and have him hand-pick his Japanese team. Having KuSORU at the event (with someone else like Rei-Chan if that’s even possible) and other Japanese in such a tournament would not have AE totally overshadow UMVC3. USA will be in an official 5v5 for Marvel, add in the KuSORU interest (and maybe Rei-chan) and possibly other countries like Mexico can really make UMVC3 interesting. AE can be really interesting as long as you have enough of the underdogs yet quality countries like Kuwait, Dominican Republic with the already obvious Japan, Corea, USA EU big does with other sleepers like China!

Canada Cup has the most potential after EVO to be the best event of the year! Hope you guys can pull off all the big guns!

Edit: Another idea is if you can get a sponsor to sponsor a special show match between F. Champ vs KuSORU FT15 that could be really exciting. ECT4 RayRay vs Fanatiq was the most exciting thing about it and though perhaps it wouldn’t be their own money or that it’s not a Canadian, it can still be really hype. Perhaps advertise it with interviews, analysis to build it up during the Road to Canada Cup. Just a couple of ideas if the 5v5 for Marvel doesn’t work out (=^.^=)


#8

Man I’m going to try my best to make it to this tournament. Sooo much hype every time.

#17

The biggest Canadian Fighting Game tournament will only have 2 games? And Marvel will not be 3/5. This seems really strange to me.


#18

Looks like it hasn’t been updated yet, our other thread is

There’s 5 games and working on the 6th game.
We’re still deciding on marvel,


#19

#20
