#2

If this goes will also Ybm will be conducting multiple tournaments during the next event.


#3

Does anyone know this guy? Mysterious tournaments sound sketchy… In either case, this isnt the proper forum to post it. Either post in our thread or on the events thread.


#4

Its legit trust me they are friends of mine. They work at Jamestown theater and they want to run a tourny. Now i was not sure of the best way to notify people so I told them (well common sense says) Post it on the MIDWEST HERP DERP forums.

If this is not the best way to notify the community what would be sir. I take it you mean the St louis Garbage thread is what they should be posting it in right? I also told them to post it in the events section of SRK also.


#5

How many setups are there going to be?


#6

There will be 4 stations at YBM Studios…And 1 Movie Theater Auditorium that holds 176 people, with a screen exceeding 70 ft.


#7

I know a random tournament out of nowhere seems like “OK, what is this?” My company has been around since Feb. 2009 & this IS the 1st gaming tournament I’m putting together. Which is why I’m making a guaranteed cash pot of $300 no matter what. Police, Security, Mall Officials, Media & Press will be there…so there is nothing to worry about as far as scamming goes. You are also more than welcome to call & talk 2 me if you have any further questions. P.S. I originally posted this in the Tournament section. My host posted a copy in this thread. I will also look & post in this St. Louis Section you speak of.


#8

hmmm ill be there its not far from my house im gonna see if i can put this on facebook or you guys should do it You guys should put tekken in if ya can that would get MORE people to comae also…


#9

Although I don’t play it, the Tekken scene is pretty decent here. You’re guaranteed more asses if you put that in.

LOL at them still calling Jamestown Mall a mall. But I’m intrigued. Should be posted in the tournaments thread. And the more you give away, the more likely it’ll be stickied


#10

If you live in MO, support this. Although we don’t know anything about it yet, It might be good in the future. I’ll try to be there.

If you need help , let us know. I don’t know much but I do know a lot of people in the scenes.

Some advices for your first tournament:

  • Reduce the entry fees for people with game system/monitor . This will help you with more set ups = smoother tournament
    -Add on a tekken tournament. Saint louis tekken is really popular. Split the cash pot between ssf4 and tekken.
    -If you’re not familiar with running tournament, let the player run the bracket for you. They’d run more efficent.
    -Don’t be shady with prize/money. Be clear about it. If you’re good, words will come out. More people will come out to support.

Don’t hestitate to ask us for help. We’re really friendly.

Q&a

Thanks so much for the support. Im posting a FB page & event Dec. 6th the day of sign ups. Add me on Facebook “Lilton Hookz Stewart III” my email is hdoubleokz@hotmail.com if you cant find me by name. I want to do dual games in the future. But since this is my 1st hosted tourney, I dont want to get to in over my head. Besides this will be a Bi-Monthy event with different games. So hopefully we can tap into the other games at the same time.


#12

Q&a

LOL, Jamestown Mall is trying to make a comeback. This is one of the attempts on my behalf since they have been helping my business so much. As I stated in the earlier comment. This is my 1st one, & I didnt want to over do myself & have errors & or flaws. Plus, Ive already got posters, banners, tickets, etc. I actually have the main post in the tournament section. My tournament host created this thread. But I appreciate all the support we can get. Im trying to make St. Louis a larger game community.


#13

Q&a

I REALLY appreciate the advice…And I really like the reduced rate for players with systems & monitors. That would be EXCELLENT! I actually have the tournament being set up by an actual GAMER who is also the host. If you check the Tournament & Events Section, I update it regularly & it has all the official breakdowns. Although Im to far in to add Tekken as a Co-Exist with SSF4. It may be an option for Bonus Prize Giveaway matches. If you can help me with getting the word out, shoot me an email to ybmgamersfest@gmail.com or call me at 1-636-336-2921 ask for Hookz & we can talk & set up more. I need all the help I can get. I want this to be BIG for the city. And again, Thank you.
