wheres APEX gunna b held?


#3

If it was like last year, New Jersey.


#4

Is there going to be a link or some kind of code to get the discount rate online, or do you have to call them?


#5

Yoooo Get hype. Lets try to spread the word around and get all of East Coast to come to this tournament.


#6

I’m in there. Please get the word out, everyone!

Also, I would definitely like to see Persona 4 Arena and Divekick at this event!


#7

All the events you go to you must know Keits. Make it happen! Haha, I’d love to try it.

I will make Kung Pao work. Low tier hero.


#8

To be clear, we only have to pay $30 to enter. The 100 dollar stuff is for hotel rooms correct?


#9

I second Persona 4 Arena

Correct


#10

i havent been to a tourney since november. but ill be going to this.


#11

Coolz. I’ll defiantly be going then. I live very close to Sommerville.


#12

I live an hour away. Sweet.

What are those other games listed for? Are they tournaments and possible tournaments, or just casual games? Also, does paying the 30 allow me to play in all the tournaments, or are there additional fees for each one I want to enter?


#13

Do you have a schedule lined up yet? I would like to try and make it, but I don’t want to take Friday off from work unless I absolutely have to.


#14

The games listed in the “Possible games” section are games that are being considered for tournaments at the event. The games before that are games already scheduled for tournaments. $30 is only for the venue fee. The games have separate entry fees (which will more than likely be $10 per game).


#15

Are the tournaments really starting on Friday (a la evo style), or is Friday for side games, team tournaments, etc?


#16

Upstate will be there


#17

Can we get some more details? What’s going to be on what systems? Dates of which games? This will decide whether or not I can go.


#18

I’m just gonna pretend I’m going to show up and then probably forget about it in a couple months

But if I remember, I’m in there


#19

Gonna be so sick…, What system’s are AE and UMVC3 going to be played on? I don’t think I seen anything.


#20

We’re hasing out the details as I type this. But do know that the contract has been signed and this is happening. We are very excited!
