For the admin: guard you stuff cause people suck. Maybe you can bring bats to Evo MLB bats hahahaa…
For the people:
1st: When you get there other than the giant crowd you have no idea if you’re in the right place.
2nd: The organization of when and where people get their camera waiver.
3rd: A different or at least more sealed off BYOC area/room would have been cool. I agree with the person who said that the MLG people were taking a giant portion of the TV’s for Halo 2.
4th: From what I’ve read ST should have been on DC despite what happened with Kuni and that one guy.
5th: Projectors for games on Friday or RCA some of the feeds to another TV.
6th: Use S-Video if you can manage it (obviously not necessary)
7th: Eliminate what ever you need to do to make the 2 out of 3 the whole tourney instead of one game although it was probably not the administrations fault.
8th: Tables for people who needed somewhere to put their sticks.
9th: Some sort of material that you can put the sticks on OR something that can be attached in order to weigh the sticks down.
10th: Check all the settings for every game before hand ex: mono vs. stereo with MvC2 hehe.
11th: The lights, it would have been really cool if all of them were turned off during the finals… But I’m sure they couldn’t :sad:
To fix the problems:
1st Signs or a map you can post online for people to print or whatnot.
2nd Two stacks, first everyone gets the waiver then when they enter they can see on a projector when and whom they play, but that sounds really hard. Im sorry
3rd Caution tape hehe Ropes or big signs for the area as for getting another room that is probably too expensive.
4th: That one is something I cant help with.
5th Projectors cost too much so maybe $30 VCRs to RCA the input to another TV where people can watch what is going on.
6th You can find cables on EBay for very reasonable prices.
7th Organizing is all I can think of, I dont know much on how you run things, and Im only trying to help.
8th Maybe you can get the hotel to lend some out if they can, put they probably couldnt or else you would have used them at least the chairs were an option.
9th There was some sticky rubber thing that a friend had to put the stick on the table and it never moved, I have no idea what it was though. The people who tied their sticks down to those crates had the right idea
10th A memory card for one of the adapters that Evo is using preset with everything you need.
11th That one is up to you guys, I have no idea how you can fix that one if you would like to fix it. Perhaps you can get more people to help run the tourney.
All in all Evo went great, there were a lot of +s to the event, for instance those big gallons of ice water and the mints in the cups, that was probably the best thing there hehe.
Those guys running around with air fresheners were pretty cool too.
Oh I just remembered I was dqd for not showing up, I thought you guys had the phone numbers of people incase you needed to call them? I am not complaining that I got dqd because it was my fault for not being there but I just want to know what happened to that.
Good luck with making the DVD.
Edit* forgot to thank everyone who made Evo possible. Thanks to everyone who did their best to run the tournament. And the aftermath to come.
