Ok it is time for another GVegas Beatdown this Jan 18th, we learned a lot from the last tournament and will be running this one a little different.

1:00 SMASH, STHD, 3rd strike

We could use some PS2’s, TV’s(no lcd’s for tournament play), and wii’s for tournaments but if anyone wants to bring more equiment we dont have any for casuals so that would be very very helpful.(please post what you could help bring, tv,ps2,ect…) Drinks and food will be availible for sale( also the store is beside a chinese resturant and a coffe shop so it is all good.)
Side tournaments will be allowed but I will not run them and you need to bring your own stuff ( please come early to set up.)

I can also help run any brackets you guys need.
And FUCK YES to $10 game fee!!!


yea we where always going to do a $10 game fee. I just did a 5 for the first one to work out the kinks.

good to know you are coming man.


How long does it take you to get down there Bryan?

Also…no TVC?


Are you trying to go? :smokin:


man wtf ima be back at school then, free $$$ for me in sc4 lol


John “UncleBuck” Shelby
Anderson, SC

I’ll bring my loaded PS2 again. =)


It is around 2 hours for me I think. Don’t know off the top of my head.


Any chance these tournaments will be held on a Saturday in the future? I would come to this one but my work schedule prevents that from happening.

Also, is SF2HDR on PS3 the preferred format? I would think most people are playing that on XB360.



I dont know about the prefered for SThd but I just figured it was PS3 because most sticks are PS3/PS2. but if the majority is for 360 we can do that as well.

Also as far as TVC I would love to have it there if anyone has copies of it and doesnt mind bringing it we will run it as a side tournament.

and Ted I have been doing sunday because people that wait tables bitch about it being on Saturday. but I will poll at this one and see how many people come if it is on a saturday.


OK, thanks for the feedback. Try and poll the players on this forum about PS3 over X360 for SFHDR. Do PS2 sticks work with a PS3???




no but most people have a converter.


Nice edit of the Final Round rules :slight_smile: Good to see we are the standard now :lol:


final round FTW


Soul Calibur IV (xbox360)

isn’t PS3 tourney standard ruling? im looking foward to entering as many tourneys as i can prepping for Final Round. Tekken and SC4 are my main focus, so wouldn’t it b better to play based on national ruling??? Can’t some1 bring a ps3 and/or ps3 copy of the game?


[quote=“ando1184, post:17, topic:52631”]

yes the PS3 is tourney standard but last time I had tons of complaints about it wanting it on 360, plus this place has tons of 360’s and several copies of it for 360 so all I will have to do is move the 360’s off of the LCD’s to a CRT, MUCH EASIER!!! so I am doing it this time on 360.

can I still put you down?



yeah go ahead, i’ll try an wing it. although i dont have any 360 controllers so ill need 2 borrow 1 from one of u guys. any practice is good practice after all. :slight_smile: put me down 4 tekken also.


360 vs PS3

console ruined everything…I miss the arcade!
