Maybe so, but I think the thread being here will give it more exposure since the HDR players will eventually visit here. Plus anyone could fly over and attend if they were interested in playing HDR as well as SF4, T6, etc.
Yeah, it didn’t go well last year. From what I gathered, they were allowing last minute registration for SF4 and they received more numbers than expected, so they spent the majority of the day knocking out SF4 on top of the other games in the tourney.
And so HDR didn’t get started until about 11:00 P.M. A few teams like Milo were tired of waiting and I don’t blame them.
The first day they used for the pool party, so the second day they crammed EVERYTHING in one day. The third day was top 8 in each game. Maybe if they used the first day to knock out games/registration instead of the pool party, then things would have ran much smoother.
It was a learning experience for them seeing it was their first tournament and I do believe it will be a whole lot better this time.
The tourney your talking about that HDR didn’t get played is the Activegamers tourneys. I think DGV, Afrolegends, and maybe a few others were the only one that went. According to James Chen, they didn’t even hold a tourney and didn’t give any heads up. James says it was a good thing people didn’t show up or else everyone would have been pissed.
