We’re now into our sixth season of It Was Tuesday, titled: Mollywhop. The season begins May 2nd, and every Tuesday afterwards. Total fee for playing has been lowered to $6. $5 for House, $1 for tournament pot. WINNER TAKES ALL
What: Street Fighter V (PS4) Weekly RANBAT
Where: Phoenix Games in Concord, CA (http://phoenixgames.biz/) 4607 Clayton Rd.
When: Tuesday nights. First meet up is Tuesday October 4th, then every Tuesday after until December (we take a break Thanksgiving week). Sign ups open at 6PM, tournament starts at 7PM.
How much: $6. $5 goes to the house, $1 goes to the pot.
Cap: 64 players. First come, first served.
Pay out: Less than 8 players sign up, we run Round Robin. More than 8 players sign up, we run Double Elimination. WINNER TAKES ALL
Legacy sticks?: Banned until Capcom/Sony make it a non-hassle. You need to rock a wired PS4 stick/controller or a PS3/360 wired stick/controller using a PS4 converter (such as Brook’s PS3/360 to PS4 adapter or fight board. Essentially, anything that makes the PS4 think your set up is a PS4 controller/stick).
Stream?: Hopefully soon. Phoenix Games is working on some infrastructure issues (AKA the Internet service sucks) to make streaming a possibility.
Casual play?: If you pay the house fee, you can play casuals once I open up stations. That may not be until later in the bracket. Keep in mind that since we are in a game store that needs to open the next morning (and some of us gotta work in the morning), we’re shooting for clearing out at 10PM.
If you don’t pay house fee and just came to hang out … well … I have the Hyper Fighting machine set to 50 cents. Have fun with that. Seriously though, Hyper Fighting is good, so play it. Street Fighter V is good as well, so just pay the 10 bucks and play in the tournament.
Bring a set up: We only have four PlayStation 4 set ups at the moment, and eight is the money number to make double elimination run quickly and smoothly. If you can bring a PS4/monitor combo and we use it, I’ll wave your house fee.
Can you run X that’s not Street Fighter V?: Phoenix Games currently runs a Smash Bros. weekly on Wednesdays (coordinated by Trevor), which includes them fiddling around with Pokken. If Nintendo-based fighters are your thing and you’re near Phoenix Games, Wednesdays are your days and Trevor is the man to speak to.
As of right now, Tuesday is dedicated to Street Fighter V. Let me get that running smoothly, then we’ll see about other stuff.
This is where Sosage rants about the details: Keep in mind, Phoenix Games is a used game store first and foremost, so don’t do anything to jack up their ability to conduct business. If staff asks you to do something, be respectful and do it.
The store is a pretty good size for a game store, but it’s crammed with games, pinball tables, and arcade machines. So standing space may get tight. The 64 player cap is partially because that’s about how many people this place can hold. The big thing is to not crowd the play area. Let players have room. We’ll have the doors to the back alley open for you all to spill out, catch some air, and smoke.
Keep the smoking n’ vaping outside. If you reek of 420, bring a can of Axe and spray yourself before coming in. The owner of Phoenix Games and I don’t typically give a shit, but in the past customers have been up tight about the store smelling like a cannabis field exploded, and this goes back to the whole, “don’t jack up Phoenix Games’ ability to conduct business” thing.
The usual other shit that applies to real life applies here as well. Don’t go picking fights. No underage drinking. Don’t act like an asshole/cunt. Cops regularly patrol the back alley, so don’t do stupid shit. Come out to have fun. Etc.
Street Fighter V?! Where the fuck is 925X?!?: 925X was my monthly Super Turbo/Hyper Fighting meet up out of Phoenix Games. That’s still on hiatus until my SuperGun/CPS2 equipment situation gets better (or I give up on SuperGuns and just run it out of my garage).
