Tried to play the trailer but all I got was music.

A3 but no XvSF?

:frowning:


#3

Update your Flash/Shockwave - there is a link below the video :tup:

Oh - do not get me wrong - there is nothing I would like better than to play some XSF! Especially if you and Sabre are around…

BUT

**I learned a lot from last year (reinforced from this weekend’s tourney)…specifically, to not try and do too much and have that shit run tight… **

**Even SFA3 is a potential tourney…an “if we have time” deal. **

That said…It is my intention to blow through the scheduled tourneys and then start up some more, with some of the extra set-ups doing casual play and money matches the whole time to keep the masses entertained…

You come man and we will play some XSF one way or the other…

Man I Cant Wait For This Tourney
Whats The Black Bag Tourney?


#5

**I can see someone did not spend the minute to read up on the site :looney: **

If we have time…I will throw 7-10 RANDOM fighting-ish games in a bag and yank out a title…whatever title and platform it is we play. I can only guarantee it will NOT be a title we are having other tournaments on…

Examples may include KI or Star Gladiator or perhaps your favorite…Project Justice…


Get on the site and get your butt registered…

A few people have mentioned they were not sure about the registration/pre-registration so I thought I would post up here…

Registration is to pay now (and save a $5.00 entry fee) and be entered into the tournament

Pre-Registration is to pay later, including the $5.00 slacker fee, and be tentatively entered into the tournament

Registration guarantees your place in the tournament and the other does not…and, of course, it makes our life easier if you register and pay now as it does not take so long to get everyone registered and brackets built the day of…

Thanks…

um… why would you schedule this tournament for the same day as ecc11, aka the second biggest tournament in america… it would be very wise to reschedule for at least a week later

Um, ECC has been on Memorial Day weekend since ECC ONE ten years ago…there was only 1 official ECC that was not on memorial day weekend and that was in the 90s…

It’s cool that you guys want to offer something to players in your area if they can’t make it to ECC, but you should probably offer it a week before/after the actual ECC event, so that anyone who might want to go to both events, can. I’m all for supporting the community, but when you make uninformed comments like this:

"Totally effen AWESOME… That is soo cool that they decided to host that shit on the same weekend this year.

Sweet."

You have to wonder.


#12

**You are right - that might have sounded offensive, but it was not meant too…It certainly was not directed at anyone - how could they know lil ole me was trying to run a tourney the same weekend. I will edit it out. **

I was really unaware it was the same weekend, I do not remember it so last year?

Thanks for the feedback. :tup:

**What do you guys think of EVO allowing the Anniversary edition of Hyper Fighting in? Every version of every character available? Should WE do that as well instead of SSFT2? **

For those who have not seen it: EVO Hyper Fighting Link

Opinions?

Three Weeks until Devastation 2006

That is right - just three more weeks until Devastation!!

The phone calls, PMs, and emails are coming in and people are STOKED. While the online registration is empty just like last year, we are promised a huge turnout.

If YOU are coming and have NOT registered, which is pretty much 90% of you, get on there and post up: Pre-Register

As an incentive I will let you guys know that in addition to the cash prizes everyone loves we have some other great stuff:

Comics
Gift Cards and Certificates
Figurines
Plaques and more…

#19

you should really consider moving the tournament to the next weekend man… everyone is planning on going to ecc or that big tekken tournament during memorial day weekend… thats the reason no one has posted interest yet. Even the AZ locals haven’t posted on this thread yet


#20

Yeah - but that is how they roll… they never post crap up but they all show up in the end.

Unfortunately, it is just not feasible for me to move it this year. Besides, I wonder how motivated people will be to go to back to back tourney weekends? Will all the peeps going to ECC and (Tekken tourney?) show up here the next weekend if I really did move it? Ya know?

Your feedback is appreciated by the way…
