Official Problem and Solution Thread
#2

No MK love?


#3

Hey Jay - no MK love. I want to keep it AE and MVC3, and adding a third game to the mix might cause some logistical problems for me. I’m not the most efficient TO, and I already have trouble sometimes wrapping up before closing time for two games.


#4

While people do bring the systems, we need to be sure everyone has the necessary downloads. There was a minor issue with one station lacking Jill and Shuma when one player needed one of em.

With AE nearing and being close to the date, that needs to be downloaded right away. If there are just four stations for example, it shouldn’t be hard. Please reply ASAP.

EDIT UPDATE: List of setups
Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition
Me!!! (Xbox 360)
Super Sick Case (Xbox 360)
Zim (maybe, Xbox 360)
Acegik (maybe, PlayStation 3)
Romeo (PlayStation 3)

Marvel vs. Capcom 3
Me!!! (DLC, Xbox 360)
Mamamosh (DLC, Xbox 360)
Super Sick Case (DLC, Xbox 360)
Xavier (DLC, PlayStation 3)

Monitor
Super Sick Case (Asus monitor)
Romeo (2x Asus monitors)
Pieguy (maybe, Asus monitor)
Acegik (maybe, LG monitor)

Misc.
200yen (Xbox 360, GAME???)
Super Sick Case (3 Xbox 360 TE sticks [one octo])
Command (Backup, no games, Xbox 360)


#5

I’ll get on that for my own PS3. Thanks for the reminder, as I have to ask for AE as well. But…

There seems to be more 360 players lately. What it comes down to, though, is the more dominant console + stick base of our area.

If you have a PS3 you can bring for tournaments and a PS3 stick or two to provide for tournament, please post. Also indicate if you have MVC3, DLC characters, and are planning to get AE by the time this tournament occurs.

If you have a 360 you can bring for tournaments and a 360 stick or two to provide for tournament, please post. Also indicate if you have MVC3, DLC characters, and are planning to get AE by the time this tournament occurs.

As always, I only have the information you guys post to go off of, so I will continue running PS3 unless I see a convincing enough reason to switch. Please post.


#6

I will bring my 360 as backup. I have Jill and Shuma and I plan to get AE day one.


#7

I shall bring my PS3. It has the DLC characters for MvC3.


#8

I might make this. If so I can bring a full setup with MvC3 and probably AE.

EDIT: Full PS3 setup.


#9

Hopefully I can attend. If I do, I have a 360 w/ Jill & Shuma.


#10

Thats cool Romeo. I would like to make it out there sometime, but I’m usually an hour away when it starts. I wish there were more players in placer area.


#11

Hey was my setup last time okay? I should probably get better speakers because I couldn’t hear them at TapEx.


#12

PlayStation Store is still down and if it obstructs the PlayStation Network release of AE as well as the tournament date (which occurs on the same week), consoles might have to switch to Xbox 360 setups. In case if it does happen, I want all PlayStation 3 setups being MAHVEL focused (PLEASE have Shuma and Jill if you can) while Xbox 360 setups be AE ran. I think I am being redundant.

Also please post if you are bringing a setup before E3/AE/tournament week as a precaution.


#13

Noted. Mind your tone, please.

If PSN is still down I will do my best to procure 360 setups for this tournament. Those of you reading, please be ready to make your console / monitors available if possible.

For 360, I have 200yen, PhantomNaut, possibly xMAMAMOSHx. Any other volunteers?
For PS3, I have myself, Acegik, Xavier. BlackNoob?Anyone else?
I have two monitors to contribute and possibly one more from Pieguy. Any more contributors?

Again, I will try my best to stick to only one console. However, if that doesn’t serve the tournament’s needs, I will do what I deem best.

Post if you can help out.


#14

Oh dude I don’t have a PlayStation 3. :stuck_out_tongue:


#15

Will be there, I have a 360 that can be used but I don’t have ssf4/mvc3 on it so would need someone elses copies and to get the dlc stuff done beforehand.


#16

Ah yeah I forgot… fixed

Mm, it’d be hard to jigsaw-puzzle things out… I’ll keep your setup in mind, but for now, I’ll let you know whether or not I need it. Thank you.


#17

Cant wait!


#18

I’ll be out of town again that weekend, my apologies.


#19

Brandon make sure to get my stick before ReveLAtions.

Oh yeah we also need sticks on the 10th especially for 360!


#20

Hey I’ll be there and I got a 360 if you guys still need it. I’m gonna get ae as soon as it drops, but I don’t have the mvc3 dlc. None of you guys probably know me, but if you were at the last gamer’s etc. tourney in Stockton, I was the guy noobin it up with dudley…
