SSFIV - Obvious Enough
Tekken 6:BR - You got to have this game in T11
Blaz Blue CS - This game should be out by then
Tatsunoko VS Capcom - Bring it
SCIV - maybe, if there’s room
Sorry but it’s time to let the old games die.
i.e. Not count them as Official Games anymore.
Last year, there was so many side games. We couldn’t spare equipment because of it.
It was also sucky that people who promised equipment bailed.
I’m sure side games will be possible but will be put aside until official games are done.
I’m looking at a few places right now. I’ve got a friend looking at a place in the Convention Centre but a date has to be formulated first. It seems that the best place would be TFNS since it’s central and clearly accessible to everyone easily. Unless somebody has another place that can fit up to 250 peeps. Send me a message if you know a place. Price reasonable as well.
You guys may think, TFNS is not big enough. I’ve talked to Vaughn and spaces can also be cleared to give more room. And no, not every game will be in the central room. There is the back area and upstairs as well. It’s seriously more than enough space once everything is cleared. He has a system that can run HD recordings and also Stream matches.
Need opinions on the following and remember, nothing I say here is final.
This is just to open a discussion to get the ball rolling. Summer is starting and i’m sure you guys know how fast that runs.
-Jul 31-Aug 2 (I want this date, please vote this date)
-Any Sat and Sun in August (meh)
-Sept. 4-5 (hard for schoolers)
2 days is more than enough.
-Which leads me to the next question, Do Teams or Not?
–I personally feel that Teams should not run. Teams takes too much time and effort to finish. i.e. People who disappear. A 16 team bracket will take the whole weekend like what happened in T10 which caused a few salty people to voice their VALID opinions. I say just stick to singles. I’m good for compromise. If you guys do want to run teams, run it after singles.
-It was hard to keep track of people last year who didn’t pay the Entry Fee. You know who you are. So i’m gonna do the venue fee ala EVO style. If you want to participate in a tournament, you have to pay a participation fee of $10 (pending) that will go to the place we are using. Then you pay for the entry fee of the games you choose. This way, we don’t have to hunt you down or check if you have stamps or some shit like that. Free to attend, Fee to participate. I felt bad for people who just wanted to check the place. I’m sure almost 90% of the people who attends will participate anyway so not really a big loss.
-Any other things that needs to be discussed. Please voice them now.
I’ll need Bracket Organizers for the games:
SSFIV - RXS has put interest but he’ll need an assistant.
Tekken - will be me with another person
BB:CS - will either be Nazir or Pui or together. I’ll ask them.
TvC - Davero? Brett? Anyone who knows how to run a bracket.
Last thing, if you found something wrong with T10 last year, please mention it so that it doesn’t happen again. I’m sure some of you have a lot to say about the SFIV tournament so here’s your chance to help us improve it.
