****** TOURNAMENT POSTPONED DUE TO CITY TECH COLLEGE NOT ALLOWING US TO CHARGE ENTRY FEES UNLESS WE RENT OUT THE CAFETERIA *******

Video Game Alliance will be hosting a Capcom vs. SNK 2 tournament in CUNY New York City College of Technology (City Tech) located on 300 Jay Street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

Here is the map of the exact location:

The tournament will take place in the Cafeteria in the Namm Building (entrance on 300 Jay Street) on multiple TV sets. There will be standard PS2 controllers available to use but BYOC/S (Bring-your-own-Controller/Stick) is recommended.

#3

I’ll try and make it to this. Have to find out where this place is relative to where I’m staying.


#4

Yea man come through! It’s gonna be a lot of fun and we’re expecting a lot of good competition. I updated the tourney info post with the location with a google maps link and the closest trains to the school.

Here’s the google maps link:

#6

Hey whats up man? Nah, I haven’t played it in the longest, and when I did I got raped by the guys down here lol.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ve only been to NY a couple times so I’m not too familiar with the area. Hope to see you there :tup:


#7

When you find out where you’ll be staying - pm me - or hit me up on AIM (sn: NyCz DominikinG) and I’ll tell you what’s the best way to get there.


#8

Ok it turns out I’m relatively close to the tourney, so I’ll most likely stop by. I don’t have a stick though, hopefully a fellow SRKer or someone there would let me use one of theirs (preferably not a Japanese stick).

How many people usually show up for these tourneys?


#9

Tournament got postponed to a later date. On behalf of VGA, sorry guys. The college screwed us over with the cafeteria so we don’t have another place to run the tourney (for now at least).


#10

That sucks


#11

so when is it ?? I will probably be there.


#12

I was kinda hoping it would still be later this week. I leave back to Miami on Sunday.

**Why not use the lounge in Polytech U?

Unless they have some weird reason why you can’t use it, then it’s possible to do so. All you need is ask for one of the A/V staffers to bring down several TV’s for the tourney.

Plus it’s just across the street and a couple of blocks down from Cititech so if anyone goes by Train or Bus it ain’t that far.

Get some ST/3S biz goin on there while I bring some GGPO ish for fun =P
