Tennessee Thread-" We Secretly Love 'Twilight'."
#2

I’m gonna be all over this! But the most important thing I got from this is milln’s real name. I found you out… Jonathan!


#3

Probably going to be making this


#4

Get hype guys, it’s going to be a blast! Make your plans now to come and celebrate MWC’s 20th anniversary with us!


#5

Sunday schedule is as follows:

11am-Signups
12pm-Persona 4 Arena (360)
12:30pm-Smash Project M (Wii)
2pm-Guilty Gear AC+ (360)
5pm-Acceleration of Suguri X Edition (PS3)


#6

Hey, Is the pot bonus games have plus entry fee if someone gets 1st place also?


#7

The most hype tournament at the event is going to Suguri. We are so in there.


#8

Whats the turn out looking like??? Whos Mahvelen


#9

this is a good question.


#10

is there anyway we can pledge a signup here on the boards? there are a bunch of us driving from KY, but getting there by 11am might be a really tight squeeze.


#11

I’d try to contact Jason Wilson directly about it through facebook. Just saying from experience that he runs great tournaments but he’s not the type of guy that’s gonna push a tournament back 2 hours without getting advance notice. If you let him know beforehand he will try and accommodate most likely.


#12

rad. do can you PM me a link to his facebook profile? there’s like a billion jason wilsons.


#13

Hey guys, just a reminder, Midwest Championships 20th Anniversary is coming up this weekend at Game Galaxy Arcade in Antioch, TN! All of the tournament info (games, fees, payouts, etc) is on our Facebook event page here:

We are also looking for some dedicated commentators for MWC this weekend for our awesome stream, which will be hosted by Panda Gaming on Twitch. Let us know on our event page if you are interested and what game knowledge you have.

We’re going to have pot bonuses, tons of games to play, as well as a large selection of arcade and pinball machines to play as well. It’s going to be a blast and we look forward to seeing you all there!


#14

Just a last minute reminder for MWC:

  1. The tournaments will start on time or 15 minutes after scheduled start time only if we are running late. If you are late entering/not at your matches when called, you will be disqualified or go into losers’ bracket. LISTEN for your name, and PAY ATTENTION. If you are called whoever knows you will need to get you; we are not chasing/waiting for anyone. If a tournament starts at 2pm and you are out getting food, don’t be surprised if you are called and wonder why you are in the loser’s bracket.

  2. Any “side” tournaments can not be on the main tournament area. Most of the stations are going to be running tournaments but we will move as quickly as possible so more casual stations will open up during tournaments. We can not “guarantee” a side tournament for anyone. There is one setup on the other side of the arcade that can be used for that if you want. BYOC or game(s), etc. We will be too busy to be involved.

  3. Please ask Richard Smith of any questions you may have during the tournament. Jason is very busy and the more interruptions he has the slower the tournament will go.

  4. Sharing sticks can be a cause for disqualification. Don’t get caught up forgetting to bring your own stick/pad. If you bring a wireless pad for ANY system you MUST turn it off IMMEDIATELY after leaving your match.

  5. Get practice on the TVS there BEFORE you play. We use standard ASUS EVO monitors, a Sony Trinitron CRT, and a VewLix Arcade System for our tournaments. These do not have lag. The Vewlix is a commercial grade high end Japanese cabinet. This is EXACTLY the cabinet played on in Japan for SSF4AE. I do not want to hear that you “can’t get your plinks out” on a CRT because you are used to the timing on ASUS. Get accustomed to the timing FAST if need be. If you request ASUS we can do that but request it FIRST.

  6. If you think you are scheduled to play one of your local area buddies early that you drove 10 hours with, TELL US FIRST BEFORE YOU PLAY. We do float based on region. We float randomly if this occurs. We seed based on skill/region.

  7. This is a smaller venue than what you are used to, so it will be packed and exciting at the same time. Play the arcade games if you get bored, don’t crowd the areas if you don’t have to. We purposely designed this with the “cramped arcade” in mind with all of these pinballs/arcades to play while you wait for matches.

We are going to do the best we can with our venue. We have 10-12 setups and 8 of these will be for tournament play throughout the days, but there are non ASUS casual setups and plenty of games to play in the arcade throughout the 2 days. We hope everyone has a good time and look forward to seeing everyone, but please adhere to our rules to make it a more enjoyable environment for everyone.

Thanks!
