What are the prizes for King of GGPO 2012?


#3

I noticed a weird rule about ping.

Like, where is the point of having 160 ping to? The midwest of america? Florida? Mexico?

It is kind of useless to just say “160 ping limit” when I could be checked by someone not close to me and get disqualed, even if my opponent was close to me and fine


#4

I would hope it’s Sabin and Kuroppi since they are on opposite ends of the US.

Good point.

Guys I know people hate reading and following instructions because it’s the internet… but if you can take a few minutes it will make the whole tourney goes smoother and thus less waiting for you.

  • Please follow instruction from tourney organizers on chat. (ggpo chat can be chaotic at times with 10+ ppl talking)

  • Follow the bracket and instruction on when to start your match. (as you approach top 8 winners losers, most likely every match will get streamed)

  • If your match is going to be streamed, please get connected and wait for confirmation that streamer has entered your game.

  • Once streamer got in, both players should go to the lobby (first room in the ggpo game list on the left). This will ensure that no more spectators can get in to introduce lags to your match

Detailed instruction in the link below

  • Spectators, please don’t watch games using ggpo client, watch sabin’s stream instead. It comes with colorful commentary.

Check your PM’s :slight_smile:

My Stick is broken… damn it.


#13

Are there videos and a results list from last night?
I don’t have a PC to watch it through GGPO, and my Kindle Fire doesn’t take nicely to Twitch.

EDIT: Found results… Derr, for some reason it didn’t come up in my RSS.
Now… videos?


#14

Can’t you just watch the archived footage off of Arturo’s twitch channel and just skip ahead to the matches?

Nice turnout last night with a lot of good players. Thanks to everyone for participating. Big thanks to Sabin for the stream, Papasi for his help running the tournament and Zaspacer for helping run the brackets.

Video: http://www.twitch.tv/nycfurby/b/331441880 (Starts around the 40 minute mark)

I recorded the matches but not sure how the quality turned out yet. Sabin should be putting the individual matches on YouTube sometime in the near future.


#16

I uploaded them in one set. Timestamps in the video so you can go right to matches of interest: Check the description for timecoded links
