#2

If you want to you can establish hosting multiple games unless that’s too much work, is there going to be a venue fee? I can vouch a PS3 set up as well.


#3

hype hype hype hype hype


#4

Count me in too. If necessary I can bring my PS3 as well.


#5

I’m still feeling out the multiple games deal. I’d rather have Marvel and SSFIV on the same day, but since I’m currently running SSFIV as a monthly, I still have to see how things will go. For now, though, for February 18th, Marvel will be the main event. Regarding the venue fee, FOR NOW the proposed breakdown would be $5 to the pot and one purchase minimum from the venue in lieu of a venue fee.

These things are still in development and may change, so check here for updates.


#6

Is there good internet there…?


#7

i might make the two hour drive from sf to play. might be transferring to sac state so lets see how yall get hyped!


#8

We probably already hyped! lol


#9

Can put me down as a “maybe”. Would like to go to more events in Sac but conditions aren’t ideal for me right now so I’ll just have to see as the date gets closer.


#10

I got to watch a high bitrate livestream just fine. I was the only one stealing their internets at the time. :stuck_out_tongue:


#11

Oh man. I am hella hyped for this tourney! :slight_smile:


#12

I’ll be at this tourney for sure!

Anyone know of any MvC3 midnight releases in the Sacramento/Elk Grove area?


#13

are we using sticks or pads


#14

Alright guys, $7 entry fee with 5 going to pot and 2 going to venue. One drink minimum is no longer in effect, but if you are spectating, I ask you to please buy something if you can.

Bring your own stick / controller. If you’re accustomed to 360 pad, you’ll have to adjust to something else. If you’re bringing your PS3 controller, please bring the USB cable so it doesn’t interfere with matches later. If you play on stick but don’t have one, ask someone to lend you one at the tournament.

Looking forward to it as well. See you then!


#15

Anyone from the SF/Bay Area gonna hit this up? I’m willing to pay for gas, food or whatever if ya’ll have rides =).


#16

Same :slight_smile:
I"m actually going to be in the SF/Bay area filming some interviews with Haunt’s and hopefully Seth Killian for series 2 of “3 Green Bars”:

Here’s the playlist for those of you who missed it on the front page of SRK:
YouTube - CptMunta’s Channel

I would love to come and cover this event and your local scene in general. The idea of the series is that I get an inside look at the local fighting game scene in any country/city I’m visiting so far I’ve covered: Hamburg, Berlin, Holland, London, Japan and just finished filming in Costa Rica. Another aim of each video is to encourage people to come down and check out their local fighting game scene.

I need to get a ride and a borrow a stick if possible since I’m travelling with my family and am all the way from New Zealand (via Costa Rica :slight_smile:

I might give you a pm Romeo if I can find a way there and back. I’ll be staying close to the Golden gate bridge on and can chip for gas. Will also conduct some interviews on the way if people are keen like I did in Holland on the way to their DN2 nationals.


#17

Love your documentation Munta! I had the same idea of asking various players at the event for the local college newspaper. Hope you come by!


#18

Only 10 more days away baby! Auhwee! XD


#19

No one minds if I bring a camera to record matches for Youtube right?


#20

That would be cool.
