Thank you to everyone who came out and especially all of you that brought monitors, consoles, or discs! All in all, we had a total of 70 players come out to compete last Saturday, on track for our usual 80+ if it wasn’t for the sounders game, finals week, etc.
- UMvC3 ended up being the main story of the tournament with Canada and Portland both coming up strong and a number of upsets happening in the bracket ending with BC taking home 1st place, the money, and the PNWR2E points. Portland also placed in the top 4 with Snowstorm!!! aka Chocomuffins taking 4th. The top 8 consistant of 3 players from BC, 1 from Portland, and 4 from Seattle. If you weren’t there, you missed out on one of the most noteworthy UMvC3 tournaments in some time.
- AE 2012 featuring a number of players who… weren’t exactly on the top of their game, with the main exception seeming to be Monica who came out for the first time in months and not only took 4th place, but eliminated last month’s champion in order to do so. I know many players weren’t pleased with their performances, but I hope you all had a good time placing side bets.
- MK9 finished its last tournament before Injustice’s release with double digit entrants. Knoterror, the first MK9 player to show up that day ended up in first place as well. Grats to him and the MK community for being so strong these past few months.
- TTT2 had a lot of confusion going into it, but ended with our largest TTT2 tournament in 4 months with Super Joe and Black Steve emerging from the shadows to take 1st and 2nd.
- SFxT 2013 went from 6 entrants last month to 8 this month with Portland taking 1st and 2nd. The community is starting to get more organized and I hope to see this game continue to grow.
- DOA5 held its first tournament with 6 entrants. This is another game I hope to see grow and I’m thankful to see that we were able to get a bracket together for it.
- While KOF XIII, VF5FS, and P4U could have held round robins, the players of each community opted to play casuals instead. All three communities made good use of their time refining matchups and leveling up.
We got a lot of support from Canada in UMvC3 and Oregon in a number of games. Shoutouts to you guys, especially Stabbotsford in UMvC3 and Kwyjibo in SFxT (I’m sure you did LordBBH proud).
Once again, Grand Finals for all tournaments were recorded!
Standings for the Pacific Northwest Road to Evo 2013 have been updated.
AE 2012: http://northwestmajors.com/pnwr2e/ae2012/current-standings
At this event we announced Northwest Majors V is taking place on June 7-9 at Highline Community College! More details will be announced in the upcoming months on our website and on Facebook on our event page.
Our next monthly, Saturday Slugfest X, will once again be taking place on the 3rd Saturday, April 20th. This will be our second to last Slugfest before Northwest Majors, meaning that even without any points, you still have a chance to qualify for the PNWR2E Invitational where we will send two players for AE 2012 and UMvC3 and then a third player decided by raffle (tickets earned just by attending Slugfest events!)
Until then, I will be attending the final SeattleVersus Pot Bonus Battles at Gamebreakerz in Auburn, WA. I hope that players will come support this last event!
