In light of recent events with people preferring Guilty Gear XX #Reload over Guilty Gear XX, I would like to propose a team Guilty Gear XX #Reload tournament. This tournament will be 3v3 SBO style. There are a lot of Advantages to allowing this tournament to be apart of Evolution this year as opposed to the Disadvantages. Below they are stated.
A 3v3 tournament at this years Evolution would be the stepping stone to future 3v3 events that you might want to hold at other events. You could always go back to see how this years 3v3 tournament went and use those results to decide how the event would improve future Evolution events.
A lot of the community wants to play a different version of Guilty Gear than the one that is proposed. By having a 3v3 tournament in #reload along side the normal Guilty Gear XX tournament the combined total will definitely surpass that of what a single Guilty Gear tournament would produce. In light of the E3 rumor (Not sure if it really is announced or not) Guilty Gear XX #Reload will be released shortly after E3. At next years Evolution, this will more than likely become the standard. A 3v3 tournament may very well replace the 5v5 single EC vs. WC tournaments seeing how we can allow many different teams to compete for the strongest gaming community. An example would be that instead of EC vs. WC we could have EC vs. WC vs. Midwest vs. Japan vs. Northwest etc. etc.
A 3v3 tournament will require more televisions and Japanese PS2s. (Unless the American version is out by then).
An extra tournament will add to the time schedule of the finals if permitted. An extra tournament will require someone to run it.
I am willing to take responsibility for the disadvantages if SRK staff approves this tournament. I have run and helped run a lot of tournaments as well as major events. My credentials are helping run the Guilty Gear XX tournament in 2 Tips and Tricks tournaments which can be verified by SIN and helping run Guilty Gear XX at last years Evolution which can be verified by Tragic.
My credentials show that I am responsible and capable of handling this tournament at evolution. As you can see the advantages of holding this tournament will greatly outweighs the disadvantages that I am willing to accept responsibility for. If you have any questions or concerns please post in this thread. Thanks for your consideration.
p.s. if anyone has any advantages or disadvantages to add to this then please post them.
