Im just gonna go ahead and confirm this event to be on January 2nd. I think it works best for everyone, including me.
Also, I think I would like to make this a one day event like last time so we dont have to have everyone worry about Sunday. Sunday tournaments always suck cuz people wanna get fucked up on Saturday nights and dont wanna get up early and for the out of state players, the gotta worry about driving back and flights and stuff so lets just do it like last year and run it all on Saturday.
Main games will be GGXXAC, BB, and SFIV. I plan to have all 3 start at the same time so that we can make sure the biggest tournaments all finish on time cuz I wanna run team tournaments once those are over. We did it this way last year and we had no problems finishing up in time before we had to leave the venue.?
As far as other tournaments go, I am fine with people running them if they want to. What that means though is if you plan to run something, make sure you can get some equipment for it, since I will be dedicating the stuff I provide mostly to running the main games. Once again it will be nice if people can bring equipment. I dont know what the venue fee situation will be like this year, but I will probably reduce event registration fee costs to those who can bring equipment.
The other issue is the whole PS3 vs 360 deal. We will be needing to run BB and SFIV on these systems. I personally dont give a shit which one we use. Perhaps it would be easier to run BB on PS3 and SFIV on 360 for example to maximize the ammount of avaliable consoles. Im sure there will be enough sticks around for people to use if they dont own a stick for whatever system.
This is all just brainstorming right now, please give some feedback.
