why are marvel tournaments so few and far between? Is it really necessary to wait 2 months before you hold this?

just anxious is all.


#3

I’ll be there as always, entering everything this time.


#4

No worries. Normally it wouldn’t take so long between tournaments. It was just bad timing with Canada Cup and Northwest Majors 3 happening, and also with Ultimate coming out. Not too many people wanted to enter a a tournament when the game was so new and also Dec is just a bad month with finals and people leaving for the holidays.

But from now on we should be able to do these bi-monthly.


#5

I will come and help if I can!


#6

good luck with this


#7

Yuuup, that’s the one.

It’s across the street from Metrotown Mall, on the second floor with the wiiiide glass windows that have NES sprites pasted in them. It’s above SHAMINS JEWELLERS (big dark red sign with white writing). There’s a Subway restaurant right next to it. The doorway/stairway up to the store is on the other side.

Here’s a Google Maps link.

(If you use Street View it’s the empty suite. Those pictures were taken before the shop moved in there.)
