Hey there, Ontario and Quebec. This is Bruce “Krackatoa” Szego of the FGC.

Apparently, Ottawa’s Algonquin College has a new, $75,000,000 building with all the electrical, networking, and space we need to throw a kickass series of tournaments. With the help of GO Gaming, the Algonquin Competitive Gaming Club has the equipment it needs to run every kind of tournament we can get players for.

I can’t even begin to say how awesome this venue is. You’ll have to come see it for yourself. It is SOLID, and the school will be providing as much electrical as we can cart from their IT department. This also means venue costs are next to nothing. Which means you pay nothing for attendance. Venue is free. Outside of the tournament stations, console stations are OPEN, with space for volunteer/BYO stations being provided. No alcohol is allowed on the premises, but there is the on-campus pub open until 10pm, and a local pub across the street.

We’re looking to run these double-elim brackets in a timely fashion, so you can get on with your day/go eat/go drink/etc. This will be Algonquin’s first big event, so we’re looking to make it a good one.

So there you have it. We’re keeping our ears open to the community to put on the kind of event you guys want to see. What you want is what we want, and we will bilk the Canadian school system for everything they’re willing to give us.

Come on down and bop some folks.

I’m hoping to play some KOF at the event. Should I bring my PS3 and game or will there be a setup for it there?


#4

If you have a stick / controllers please bring them!

See you all tomorrow!


#5

I’ll be bringing my KOFXIII even though I’m beyond terrible at it.

Also, MTL Melee is asking me about what time they should try to do their tourney. I told them Brawl was listed for 1pm and that last I checked Melee was down for 2pm. This leaves things a bit confusing in some cases. I’m thinking that should be fine, but if you guys have other set in stone ideas, please let me know.


#6

If there is signifigant showing for melee it will be run around the same time as brawl (1-2 PM). 8 player bracket minimum.


#7

Just in case it wasn’t clear, we were getting together for the Guilty Gear tournament at 1.


#8

UPDATE. e206 is the location in the building. Second Floor above the Starbucks.


#9

Hello everyone, I realize this is an old post, but I just moved to Ottawa and I am looking for a place to go into tournament play for SSB Melee- any suggetions, or will you be doing this again soon?
