#5

I’m trying to register but it’s asking me to create a team. So how do I exactly register for the sf4 tournament?


#6

You have to make a team first then join the event (Street Fighter 4 in this case), though I’m not sure if you can join the event yet.


#7

Also notice at the bottom of Evil’s post that you can ONLY create your team for the event and you can actually JOIN the event on March 5th.

Sorry for the double post lol


#8

Hmm, well what about the IRC channel part? I don’t have an IRC channel. Why do I need a team if it’s single 1 v 1 tournament?


#9

Well CEVO is really for FPS type games that are team based (I think). The IRC channel part just put #<insert randy name> and there ya go, it’s nothing that needs a serious thought.
