Myself, Mike, and Team Sp00ky are not profiting off of these events. So the success of this, and future events lays solely in the hands of you and the community. We hope to bring other games to these events in the future, up to an including HDRemix, 3rd Strike, Vampire Savior, and King of Fighters.

Thank you guys for your support. And thanks again to John and Ben at Gamepad, and Team Sp00ky for working with us to make this happen.

Hope to see you all there. =D

iiiight good shit.

I’m there

I’ll should be able to make that. I like the bi weekly idea. How come it’s so late though?

How come it took so long for a bi-weekley, or the start time?

So yeah we’ll be streaming at this.

Melty Rules should be
Archtype earth banned.
Airport + Ryogi stages discouraged.
3/5 winners/losers/grand finals.

Loser may change character and moon.
Winner may change moon [only if loser changes.]
Think that covers it.

the late start time was agreed upon so that those that work can have enough time to get to the event. this is for you guys so we are willing to talk, work, and try new things to please everyone. so let us know. our numbers are on the first post and i will be setting up an email that both of us will have access to if you don’t feel comfortable calling.

By late I meant the time it starts. It’s not a problem for me at all but for the younger people it might. That’s what I was getting at. I def can make it at that time w/ no problem but I know some people can’t. I guess it really is a give or take kind of thing with starting times anyways. A lot of people maybe able to show up that late so it might be a good thing.

From what I’ve seen myself the majority of people that come to tournaments are 18+. If we started early those with a 9-5 wouldn’t be able to make an early start time. It’s sort of a lose/lose situation i guess. We’ll see how this start time goes, if need be we will make the necessary changes.

We looked into the turnouts and start times of other weekly/weekday tournaments and their start times. 8otb, level up, etc. And figured this would be the best imo.

may i ask why color 11 and 12 are banned?

Edit* I might be able to show up…

This looks awesome. I should be able to make it.

Because if we have a mirror match and people pick color 11, 12, and 1, people watching the match may get confused as to who’s who. Also, some people say that color’s 11 and 12 bother their eyes.

im there

Def making it out to this one, i might be late so ill give you a call booty to put me in for TVC & Melty

^ I’m showing up with this man. =D

last chance to get in some good practice before Road to Evo.

I completely support the banning of color 11 and 12. Thank you

The simple fact that its on a wednesday is reason enough that i cant go. on top of me having school the next day, i have church on this day, which starts at 7:30. Theres so many more reasons why i cant make these, but either way, i hope you guys get a good turn out
