[Sep 22, 2012] KOTC Fighting Game Tournament 2! (Morristown, NJ)


#1

Hey Everybody!
Its time once again for one of the biggest tourneys on the east coast, KOTC. Before I get into the nitty gritty, I gotta give a HUGE shoutout to the community. The tournament was a blast, from casual matches between old and new friends, to hype fights between pros like JRosa, FC Chris G, FNEX Madness, Flux, Grover and many others from near and far. It wouldn’t have been anything without yall, so praise where its due to the FGC.

As promised, this time its even BETTER:

Big Venue! Bigger prizes! And of coarse, the BIGGEST Hype!

EDIT* Due to popular demand for the fighters, we have decided to open registration for them at 10 am, while everyone else is to come and register at 11. As there are more fighting games then other ones present, we need more time to set up, so having you wait on line for long and then jumping into your matches without a warmup is lame, so we figured get you in early so you have time to get some practice in while we make sure the brackets are seeded as accurately as possible (this also gives the stragglers an extra hour to make it.) Hope to see you tomorrow!

p have question,ii need bring stick,o there can pay for 1,i play kof13,but i dont know if i need got my stick,please somebody tell me


#7

we always recommend to bring your own controller…of course there are going to be a lot of people their with their controller or stick you can borrow. but if you hold up the tournament too long waiting on an arcade stick you may be DQ based on holding up your match and tournament. there will be a company on site called Genius Mods who modify controllers, as of right now i dont think they touch arcade sticks but I did suggest it to them so maybe they will have a few. We will NOT provide controllers or any type of rentals. so best option would to just bring your own controller. hope this answered your question.
