Don’t come out here expecting to get paid a whole bunch of cash or having large turnouts per game (Unless you are competing in UMVC3). Poverty games rarely get large turnouts, they are passion games. So come out, casual players, pro players, oldheads or whatever and just have fun with everyone.<br><br>I repeat, you aren’t going to make any money here, if you win a few of these maybe you’ll make like 50-100 bucks, don’t come here expecting to play for the big bucks. It’s a poverty game because you’ll only get like 5-8 entrants.<br><br>Some of these games have prize bonuses, physical items given out to the winner. In order for the prize bonus to happen they must get at least 6 entrants. Depending on overall support of the event or certain games more bonuses will be added.<br><br>Non Poverty Tier: UMVC3 = 10 dollars (practice for Marvel invitational)<br><br>Poverty Tier: $5 Dollar Games<br>Arcana Heart 3 (PS3)<br>Aquapazza (PS3)<br>Guilty Gear AC+(+r) (PS3)<br>Street Fighter 3S (Xbox 360)<br>CVS2 (PS2) (Not guaranteed, dependent upon someone bringing a setup) <br>Skull Girls (PS3)<br><br>Super Poverty Tier: $3 Dollar Games<br>Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure (PS3) (Prize Bonus!)<br>King Of Fighters 2002UM (Xbox 360)<br>Vampire Savior HD also known as Darkstalkers 3 (PS3) (Prize Bonus!)<br>Neo Geo Battle Colosseum (Xbox 360) <br>Street Fighter II Turbo (Xbox 360) (Using HD remix and switching all modes to classical settings)<br><br>Ultimate Poverty Tier: $1 Dollar Games<br>Mystery Game (PS3) Round Robin, Capped at 4 entrants, winner take all. <br><br><br>In addition to the official games being run by KDP the NCSU Poverty Team will be running tournaments of there own as well.

Booo, no KoF A Spec =(

I’ma try to come to this though.


#3

It was really hard to determine that actually. Not something we just decided on, I actually talked to quite a few people in the KoF scene before making the decision and we all said it was best for now until the resurgence comes because A spec really is suppose to be for 16+ entrants and it’s been rare for KoF to reach that in these last months. Especially considering a chunk of those 16 entrants when it did reach near there were my crew alone which are in school right now.

As we said though next month man, if we get the KoF scene going again and they wanna show support for KDP you can damn bet we will be throwing in bigger pot bonuses and bumping to A spec.

For the record the pot bonus is only for this month (for now) but we hope to do more and more as time goes on and special events and such (like extra pot bonuses for specific games/bounty bonuses/so on).


#4

Sorry to ask but what is KDP?


#5

You guys are competing with Seasons Beatings YIKES


#6

Elite Zone was heavily mismanaged for a good few months after a major player stopped running stuff there and everything eventually died there so the date is mostly getting NC players out to realize that it’s back and we’re doing stuff right this time. Pretty sure there is only 1-2 people from NC going to Seasons Beatings if even that, haven’t heard any talk about it at all around here. If it’s easier for any out of state players to come then awesome, it’s only a 1 day event and 1200 dollars in pot bonuses. We actually have quite a few games that Seasons Beatings aren’t running at all that people are coming for as well.

Pretty much as I said though our main focus right now is the NC community but we have some people from Texas making it out too to for the tournament and a few other things here in NC so anyone out of state is welcome.

I’ll let the president of KDP answer this one.


#7

Good thing I decided to lurk the tourney events subforum; I’ll be there.


#8

It’s no problem, we’re a new group to running events.

KDP is the team that started streaming out of Fayetteville about a year ago. We’ve been wandering around, covering events, but in the void of a good TO in our city, we’ve stepped up to the plate by starting a tournament season. With our sister group KDS, we’re looking to level up the community with a few projects of ours. Stay tuned for a few announcements this Friday in regards to that.


#9

Looks like nobody is getting any of the pots now, will be great to see you beast everyone again as always. Still playing Viper?


#10

#11

Yea man it’s gonna be every month so any time. We definitely plan to do more large pot bonuses in the future but at that point it’d be more for specific games like a marvel/ae month or maybe a tekken month or so on as well.


#12

Sounds great to me. I look forward to see where you guys take this. I’ll probably mostly show up when it’s a pot bonus for Marvel and AE lol


#13

Yea it’s all about paying the players man. Feels good to get that extra cash.


#14

Alright guys we’re 2 weeks till the start date and more info on the S.E.E.D system has also been announced as well with one of the first battle card designs coming in from Mind Games Fight Club in Greensboro!

Check it out here – http://www.teamkdp.tv/?p=26 (first post)


#15

This is really cool. Can’t wait to get one.


#16

Nathan the Developer of the S.E.E.D system had a chance to sit down and discuss more in depth on the S.E.E.D system with the Senior Assistant Community Manager at Funcom and answered questions on why it’s going to revolutionize the way you enter tournaments.


#17

hey Alice have you posted this info to the NC thread on dustloop?
http://www.dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?9853-The-even-NEWER-North-Carolina-Thread/page134
I’m not sure if I posted in the right one, but I dropped info on the tourney at least so I hope it reaches them.


#18

We do have tournament threads there but we didn’t post in the actual NC thread itself. Thanks for that, the main TO Nameda/Nathan actually has an account there so i’ll let him know.


#19

Halfway there, estimated attendance is about 50-60ish which is pretty good. We just ordered more Asus 236s from Newegg so we will have those in as well and the current states that are going to be attending that are confirmed are Texas, Georgia, possibly South Carolina and NC (of course).


#20

im putting this on TekkenZaibatsu as well
