Hardfought: TiT... is dead


#1

The TiT series of tournaments have been a mainstay in the fighting game community for the past 7 years, reaching close to 1000 gamers from all over the world. But as all things have a beginning, they too have an ending, and this year marks the ending of this great event as we know it…

As such, we are taking time this summer to say farewell to the series, and we intend to do so with a (flash)bang!! We are teaming up with the Hardfought online gaming community to run a LAN party and console/arcade fighting game tournament fitting of the TiT series. This event is to take place July 7th - 9th, and it will be run at The Guildhall at SMU, the premier education and training center for digital game development.

This event will include 2 rooms of tournament gaming, a casual gaming room, a PC room with a 36 hour LAN party and a lounge where people can hang out and chill after some stressful tournament matches, who have been up all night playing WoW or BF2, or for friends and spectators who just want to get away from the tourney crowd and relax in a social setting.

The National Video Game Association (www.nvgaonline.com), DFW Games (www.dfwgames.com), and the Hardfought online gaming community (www.hardfought.org) present:

Nearly a week away, getting pretty amped. I have a few questions though.

What time do we need to show up on Saturday? The only game my friends and I are going for is 3rd Strike. Also, a question about 3rd strike, all of my friends play pad and map punch3 and kick3 to L1,L2. Is that allowed in this tournament? I know evo allows it now but I couldn’t find anything about it on this one.

Thank you for your time.
