As EVO 2k5 progresses, please feel free to use this thread to post all LIVE tournament results, experiences, and, of course, DRAMA! If any of you remember back to EVO 2k3, I did live coverage and I wasn’t even AT EVO, so this year will be no different, being that I’ll be in Vegas as of 8:30pm Thursday.
Developments so far:
-Players have sporatically made their way to Vegas today, while many others will be making their way to Sin City on Thursday. REMEMBER you MUST register Thursday if you have NOT pre-registered and PAID online ahead of time…if you are not going to make it, have a friend sign you up AND PAY or else you will NOT BE PUT INTO BRACKETS. NO EXCEPTIONS!
-Word is that anticipation for EVO2k5 is at an all-time high. In fact, gamers have been lined up for over 2 weeks in front of Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood anticipating Friday morning’s festivities. And EVO isn’t even showing at Mann’s Chinese Theater!
-The rumor is that some of the hotel rooms at Green Valley Ranch do NOT have the yellow-red-white audio-visual hookups for gaming systems, so BRING YOUR RF ADAPTERS JUST TO BE SAFE!
-CONFIRMED: Green Valley Ranch is requiring a $150/day safety deposit. This means that your charge card will be charged the rate of $139/day PLUS $150/day, and as long as you DO NOT DESTROY THE ROOM, that $150/day will be REFUNDED to your card after the weekend is over. So BE CAREFUL and make sure you have enough credit on your card to cover the entire weekend!
-The only mishap reported as of yet, involves Colorado’s own angry Puerto Rican, Bacardi J3di. Apparently his luggage was LOST at the Las Vegas airport. :lame: Sorry bro, hope somebody is willing to help you out if you need some cash for underpants.
Feel free to post your own EVO experiences as they happen! I’ll see you all in Vegas tomorrow!
