[Jul 7, 2012] Rocket Punch 3 @ Arcade Legacy - EVO stream, AE, UMVC3, VS, SG,... (Cincinnati, OH)


So not all of us can afford to or have the time to get out Las Vegas for EVO this year (especially those on the East coast). Instead of sitting at home watching the stream on your computer, I offer this, our third annual tournament and EVO stream viewing event (on a 135" HD screen no less!). EVO live stream is always very hype and a nice way to relax between matches. Most of you already know this, but for those who haven’t been out to AL yet, your admission to any tournament at Arcade Legacy includes FREE PLAY on all of the 60+ arcade games and pinballs in the building! For this tournament, I am offering you all the option to come Friday, Saturday and Sunday all for just the normal one day admission price! Main tournaments will only be run on Saturday, but it will cost you no extra to come play all weekend long. $10 covers your entry for all three days. If enough people show up on either Friday or Sunday, we could definitely run some more smaller tournaments.

RESULTS - link posted after the event

When: July 7th, 2012
Doors open at 11am. Registration closes 10 minutes before each game is scheduled to start. The arcade closes when we are done, which should be by 1am

Cincinnati OH, Dayton OH, and Northern Kentucky: I have the best Wesker!

I’m gonna be there in my sentinel shirt putting on a sentinel rocket punch exhibition.


I can provide an xbox for almost all current games.


I should add that to the official list of events. Rocket Punch Exhibition! People would gather from all nations for a chance to show their stuff.


Jesse: you should add that if you are providing a station it should have all the current DLC. With that in mind, I’ll be there and I’ll bring my Xbox and KOF XIII.


I assumed that would be a given but I suppose I should add it. Thanks Phil.


I certainly can give of my PS3 and games.

And I approve of this gawdlike game list.


Good stuff on getting this going Jesse. I’ll do my best to make it to this. :tup:


What’s the venue?


What’s the venue fee


I totally forgot to post that. $10 venue. Thanks Matt.


I’m down to run KOF as always. Also we should have a Martial Masters tournament on either Friday or Sunday. Why? Because Martial Masters is awesome.


If there’s enough people here to do it on Friday or Sunday, I’m all for it.


Jesse: I’m pretty sure I’ll be there for RP3. If that’s the case, I can bring my copy of SC5 if ya need it from what I saw on the stuff you needed on the OP. :tup:


Got it Sluch. Thanks. Just let me know if you can’t end up making so I can find another copy.


I need some folks to run games for me. Run one game and you get half off venue + a drink. Run two games and get free venue + a drink. First come first serve on these.


No worries Jesse. Also, I’ll run SC5 if I’m able to make it there Jesse. I’m 95% sure I’ll be there for this. :tup:


I’ll take marvel Jesse.


If I can’t go to EVO, I might just make the trip for this, especially if someone wouldn’t mind me crashing with them.

Goddamn Cincinnati… making me addicted to that chili.


It’s too good. Which do you prefer? Goldstar or Skyline?
