The last web2zone event that we threw was a SMASHING success. Over 70 players showed up for several tournaments and casuals. We had 3 tournaments with over 25 entries each! YOU THE PLAYERS came out and showed that we can really make shit happen.

-MORE space (we get to use BOTH upstairs and downstairs)
-MORE time (the event starts at 12 noon and ends at midnight)
-MORE official tournaments
-LESS lag (tournaments will NOT be held on laggy LCD tvs but on brand new tube TVs purchased for this event)
-A megaphone so we can actually call players for their turns and they’ll hear us
OFFICIAL tournaments/ranbats to be held:
-SF3: Third Strike (had 33 entrants last time!) $2 entry
-CvS2 $2 entry
-Super Turbo $2 entry
-Marvel vs. Capcom 2 $2 entry
-Guilty Gear XX Slash (entry TBA)
Also, Virtua Fighter 5 as well as Tekken DR will be in the house on HDTVs.
Doors open at 12pm, short time for setup.
Casuals until 2:30pm.
Tourney signups start at 1:30pm for OFFICIAL games. This means MvC2, ST, 3s, CvS2, Guilty Gear, and Melty Blood SINGLES (unless you end up doing GG teams instead).
Tourney signups end at 2:30pm. Brackets are made and all official tournaments start at 3pm. Guilty Gear/Melty Blood might start later as I am not running those.
After some singles events begin to end (which I foresee to be around 7pm) we can see how much time/resources we have left to do teams. I think that teams should be RANDOM to avoid ridiculously powered teams. However this is certainly open for debate.
Parking is next door and is $25 flat rate for all day long. There is also LOTS of good food in the area.
SPECIAL NOTE: if you are sick PLEASE PLEASE stay home. Last time a lot of people caught a nasty bug from someone who was sick and still came. This should be avoided this time since we will not all be crunched up downstairs, but still, please use your heads and take care of yourselves.
Also anyone who farts in the tournament area will be subject to immediate DQ/bannage from Web2zone. That shit was RANK last time!
I hope to see just as many people, if not MORE, come out for this event! This will be perfect practice for Evo East which is only 1 month after this event.
