Columbus Bar Battles: Gaiden - Jan 22 @ MOMO2 - Justin Wong, PR Rog, Flash Metroid!

Columbus Bar Battles: Gaiden - Columbus, OH - January 22nd, 2011 @ MOMO²

Hello again! MrBlasty and myself are here again, on the road to Bar Battles 4 this Summer. Nope, this isn’t it… Bar Battles: Gaiden will be a…fudge it. It’s gonna be off the chain once again! The event will be streamed as usual, with commentary by Ailerus and other alcohol-fueled persons from Ohio and the surrounding areas. The stream will be brought to you in part by ScrubQuotes@Twitter. Shoutouts to polarity.

Dec. 20th update - Shit just got real. Things have changed, and we are accommodating in the proper fashion. No surprises there, huh? Here’s the lowdown:

[list][]We are moving the tournament venue to MOMO². I am getting a feeling of déjà vu…I’m sure all of you are familiar with MOMOs by now. Venue info is below, as always.
]As you probably assumed, the venue cap has been lifted. Space is of no concern. Tell your friends! Tell your family! Tell your kids, tell your wife! Get on the site and register because you don’t want to miss this one. Click here to pre-register!
[]The lineup is changing in the interest of time and…interest. BlazBlue, KOF2002UM, RPS, and the 6v6 gauntlet have all been dropped from the official billing. These games (and others) can still happen as side tournaments so please don’t suicide, but we are not guaranteeing that they will. In their place we are holding Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike singles and Super Street Fighter IV 3v3 teams (run by Noel ‘The Professional’ Brown).
]Justin Wong will be in attendance once again! Here’s another chance to have your shot at Justin at the biggest little tournament around. Fugee will be offering a $50 bounty to anyone who can send him to the loser’s bracket in 3S, and $100 to whoever can eliminate him![/list]

Dec. 22nd update - We have another special guest to announce – PR Rog is now confirmed!

Dec. 24th update - Yet another special guest, Flash Metroid will be in attendance!

Just like Bar Battles 3, pre-registration is mandatory, but free. If there’s players in your local crew that want to come, make sure you let them know as well. You must pre-register to participate in any tournament, period. Dec. 20th update: Don’t worry if you registered before, you don’t have to resubmit if you’re entering SSF4 teams or 3S.

Once again, we are holding the tournament at MOMO², well-known as the home of Season’s Beatings and our venue for Bar Battles 3 last August. There are great food and drinks available, including the MOMOs staple, bubble tea. Alcoholic drinks are also served for those of age (it’s called ‘bar battles’, right?). Please respect the venue – no outside food or drinks permitted! Keep the Cane’s at Cane’s.

In a set, winner keeps same character, loser can switch if they like, unless specified.
If a player pauses during a match or somehow stops gameplay in the following games:

  • ST, or UMK3, the opposing player has 2 choices: play the match over from that round, or unpause/whatever and let it rock.
  • SF4, T6, 3S, or AH3, the opposing player has 3 choices: Play the match over from the beginning, take a free win, or let it rock.
  • MVC2, the opposing player has 2 choices, play the match over from the beginning, or let it rock (encouraged because of DC blue screens, unless shit’s real serious).

See you there!

Cleveland Hype Builder #1, right here!~

The 6v6 looks mighty interesting. Good idea you guys cooked up.

MrBlasty: I think I’ll be getting one of those Marvel mixes sooner than expected. See you then. :slight_smile:

Suggestion: We should hold a tournament in the near future for people in Cleveland who want to compete in the 6v6 for either game.

I wanna Be part of the Cleveland Team For Super…LETS GET IT

Take out SSFIV and T6 and put it MK2 and SC1 :slight_smile:

BTW - if the venue changes to something bigger, we’ll do UMk3 on my cab. :coffee:

id just like to state that the venue will not be changing in anyway there is a cap on the venue period this is not BB4 this is made to be small …BB4 will not be :slight_smile:

toledo?!!! lol

i think you should be clevelands sf4 rep carl but thats up to them …toledo is close enough lol

Will someone bring an extra Gamecube controller?

Do you think there is a way to get the cab in there? not down the side door steps, because that wont work but through the bar, and down the stairs? if so we can get it there a day or so before etc. let me know

no fucking way the tourney will be on mame lol its just not worth any hassle

  1. Hells yes I’m making it down.
  2. I’m disappointed at the lack of HDR. Since I want to enter more than one SF2 tourney I’ll gladly run HDR as a $5 side event if it’s all right.

Toledo is Closer to Cinnci Actually so…No

its not a hassle, i have no problem getting it where it can be, i’ve just never been upstairs at Zeno’s so i dont know how big the doors are. and to be honest, Mame is more of a hassle. We can do one set up but i’m not doing the revolving controllers. either sticks or PSX pads. thats it.



We have to do our Vega Troll plan, man. I’ll buy/make the masks, and I’ll have someone record it. xD

here i got you a gift …see that city all the way at the bottom thats cincy …see the 2 at the top …those are cleveland and toledo

Just pre-regged, time to step the fuck up in KOF 2002 UM and get used to BBCS and ST again lol. See you there MrBlasty!

lol Andre – geography son.

Mad King, can’t speak for the TOs but I’m not sure how much time they will be for side games. I think most of the players coming for SF2 would rather play an ST team tourney or casuals than HDR at this point though honestly.

Who’s providing the Supergun btw? I was already interested in getting one to bring to regional tournies so let me know if I need to get serious about picking one up. I already have one set of PSX converters but it would be great if we could get two guns and someone else could buy a set.

It was a lot of fun just talking with Brent about an event we could do – we were both really excited to see this pop off. I think it’s a great way to stream some less popular games too – when there’s something on the line.

UMK3 on MAME is better than no UMK3. There is no way a cab is getting down there; if there was I’d def be bringing my cab.

no doubt homie thanks for the support ill stop trolling you now lol

Oh well, it was kinda fun while it lasted. These dress socks are amazing though.
