Other Info

  • Please bring your own controllers/sticks/adapters, as we do not have enough to provide for everyone. If you are going to step outside and you are still in the tournament, please tell somebody so we are not looking for you. There is a 5 minute window before disqualification.
  • Currently we will have 3 tvs and wii systems for TvC and POWNZ is providing 4 stations for SFIV (HDRemix and MvC2 will depend on if they can get internet connection, which is still be investigated).
    Players can bring their own systems to set-up, but due to new university policies (aka…pushing tvs around in the snow), we may not be able to provide a tv for you.
  • With that being said, PLEASE SEND ME A PM IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE BRINGING ANY EQUIPMENT. If you have already posted in this thread about doing so, could you please send me a pm anyways as it is easier to track.

#9

there’s almost always 16+ people at the event, especially since our waterloo sf4 community is getting pretty large now (16 people is like our casuals during exam week).


#10

I will attend and bring Hamilton’s TvC skills over with me


#11

its been a while since I played in a tourney, the fact that this is a sunday secures my attendance. see everyone then.


#12

It is on a Saturday. Hope to still see you there.


#13

Marvel would be nice of course :slight_smile:


#14

Sthd! :3


#15

dont i feel like an asshole now.

Ill see what i can muster up then!


#16

Side games i’d participate in:
Tekken 6
BlazBlue
Marvel Vs Capcom 2 - your top tiers against my low tiers. LOL

Not my choice but if you guys run those games, i’ll certainly play.
I guess i’ll join SFIV too since not a lot of the good people are going.
I atleast know, i can beat a few of the good players.

Quick question about equipment

Will adapters be provided, or should we bring some? I’m not sure how many people play TvsC with pads or sticks.


#18

I would bring with you whatever you are going to use. As I’m sure some people there wouldn’t mind you using their adapters and what not, still bring your own if possible.


#19

We have only 2 PS2-to-GC adapters afaik, so anyone who has them should definitely bring them, if possible.


#20

I know there isn’t alot of support for melty and i might get shit on for supporting it but if it goes down, i’ll be there (and so will a fair number of others), and i would enter sf4, maybe tvc, and probably 3s or hdr if they end up there too.

also i would be able to supply at least one ps2 + game for mb, and know a couple other people who could also if they end up coming down for mb as well
