Woah, I got a quote in the OP?!?! I support this even more now.

In all seriousness, this is going to be a tremendous series of events put on with the efforts and collaboration from the greater community as a whole. Props to HQ for taking the lead on this.


#3

Question concerning final invitational to TosfHQ, the date is December 17th, will you guys be keeping a 360 not updated for AE? Version 2012 is quoted to be released on December 13th.

Otherwise, I’m stoked for this, great idea guys!


#4

OMG GET HYPE I NEED/WANT TO PALY HARDCORE NOW


#5

great idea. except for the fact that we are character locked.
im not diggin the idea that 4days after the game is released i need to pick 3 characters and stick to that. sorry but that just doesnt sound realistic for marvel especially since its a new game.

please consider removing the character lock. im sure by week 2 of the release people will be changing characters like wildfire.


#6

your not locked for every tournament with the same team…each individual tournament will result to you be locked with specific chars


#7

oh alright, that makes more sense lol.

not to sound like an a$$ but doesnt it make more sense to have the finale in a nicer venue? maybe the first tournament should be at HQ and the finale can be at any of the other locations.


#8

subbing to check back later. I like this SBO style.


#9

quiet rae lol


#10

I never believed it, but the Darkest of Dragon donked up my name and he really means it! lol


#11

lol ok =(

just to be clear, is the pot handed out separately in each tournament? or is the pot handed out on for the finale tournament?
also if i win the first tournament, is there anything stopping me from entering another one and winning that? what if i win all 3 then what happens?

why stop at 2v2 when we can do 3v3 =)
just saying


#12

lol Rae you hungry!

I’m pretty sure the prize pot is paid out per tournament, and if you already qualified you can’t join the rest of the tournaments (it’s in the description) :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

Am I understanding this correctly that this is a teams only tournament?


#14

Darkdragon doing tournaments again. That’s awesome.
It is a team tournament.
