Good shit Thelo. And here I thought the rumors about you retiring from the game were all true.


#3

What are the prizes? Not that I plan on winning…


#4

We’re splitting the pot 65/25/10 among the top three.


#5

What’s the schedule for HDR? Is the tournament gonna run both Saturday and Sunday?


#6

We’re still finalizing things at this point, but we’re very probably running it in full on Sunday. There will probably be casuals going on Saturday too, though. :wink:


#7

And it’s going to be strictly HDR, right? No ‘changing your minds and switching to classic ST mode at the last minute’ bs like Capcom did at the 25th anniversary tourny, right?


#8

Lol. :expressionless:

Yeah it’s HDR, obviously.


#9

Thelo, let us know when the schedule is finalized. I’ve added it to the calendar on the STR website but I’d like to add the details when they’re available. Yes, we focus on ST but we plug HDR stuff too. :slight_smile:


#10

Will do, thanks. See you there!


#11

Oh man, I just realized it’s running on Xbox 360…I can’t use those controllers at all. Can I buy a converter to use PS3 or is that not tournament legal? Anybody know? Sorry for the nit-picky question.


#12

Using a converter is perfectly fine.


#13

Here we go, this is the event schedule:

FRIDAY "beta day"
1pm: Pandante introduction and play
3pm: Codex introduction and play
Repeats of this later on as more people show up, probably again at 6pm.

SATURDAY tournaments
10am: Puzzle Fighter HD Remix
11:30am: Puzzle Strike
(break for lunch after one or two rounds)
5:30 - 7pm: manager’s reception (free food in the lobby for those staying at the hotel)
7pm: Street Fighter HD Remix
9:30pm: Flash Duel

SUNDAY tournaments
10am: Yomi
3-6pm: Grand Finals for all games (PF, SF, FD, followed by Yomi + PS at the same time)

So Street Fighter is mostly running at Saturday 7pm, with the grand finals running at Sunday 3pm. See you there!


#14

Hot damn!

I’ll do my best to show up if the powers that be decide to keep me employed for another year


#15

I’ll be there!


#16

HDR has been effectively dead for almost 3 years now, so it’s nice to see tourneys still being held for this game, the more SF2 tournies there are the better!

Also Thelo longtime no see you should get on GGPO sometime.


#17

I wish I could attend. :’(

Damn, if only it said Michigan instead. Nice to see some support for HDR.
