I was really unhappy with this tournament. We had to run Marvel on one machine for the most part due to lack of a technician on hand and having to run CvS2 on one machine when there were supposed to be 2 was just pure torture. Next time will certainly be better…
What did people think of the Third Strike tournament format? Did people like round robin ST? Just wanna hear some feedback for future tournaments…
ok, here are my complaints. overall, sin, combo, you guys run tourneys decent. problem areas: not announcing how many matches for each bracket?? example: 3s team tourney: 1 match then it becomes 2/3?? then it isnt?? wtf? cvs2: not announcing losers is only 1 match… then i lost to someone cause i totally fuck around thinking i can smoke this guy next game with my real team?? i dont know man… seems kind of wack…
Personally I preferred the Round Robin Tournament to bracket format. Here is a brief commentary of the ST tourney
We ran the ST tourney Round Robin, then Final 4 fought in brackets.
The Round Robin results were:
Dick C/Mike C: 8/3
Mike K: 3/8
David L.: Forfeit
Then we were going to have Number 1 fight number 4, and number 3 fight number 2 but we had a tie. So Dick C and Mike C duked it out to see who fights Watson in the bracket matches. And then the breakdown in the brackets was(best out of 5):
Watson - Dick C: 3/1 matches
Amir - Mike C: 3/1 matches
Then we had:
Watson - Amir: 3/1 matches
Dick C - Mike C: 3/1 matches
In this case Mike C lost and got 4th. Then we had:
Amir - Dick C. : 3/0 matches
Dick C. got 3rd. And Amir went back to battle Watson. He had to win 2 sets to win, and Watson had to win 1. Amir lost to Watson in the first set 2/3 matches.
This was the most fun I have had in an ST tourney, and I thought since it was round robin, it was a pretty fair representation of the skill level of the players, as opposed to the bracket format.
That would be me ^_^. But hey, ask some people coughCole cough; I’m not quite as bad in CvS2 as you might think.
Though I admit, during the last 4 games en route to third place I played like shit. Kept messing stuff up…that was dumb.
That tourney was cool, but yeah, they really needed more machines.
The coolest moment though, was Alex announcing “Ernest just pimped ID in GGXX! And it was only his second time playing” :lol: If you could post those vids online, that would kick ass…I want to re-evaluate my 1337 Faust tactics :lol:
yo man, i am seriously not here to diss you. you seem like a cool guy and all, but i was playing at a real casual level, and if i knew it was a one game match. you wouldnt have won dude. sorry man, im not bragging and all, just this fucken tourney was a little poorly run and shit was never set straight by the directors.
btw, sin, combofiend, i know you guys try, but at least get a working mic dogg!! fuck…
Everything was fine for me. I heard them announce everything. My only complaint is to hire people that know how to fix the sticks for MvC2! Man, they broke within the first couple matches and no on was able to fix it. That sorta slowed MvC2 down. But everything else was cool.
freaking a dude, fukn saif. u know i was sooooo pissed off when i found out that i had no ride to UCLA for the GGXX tourney then i kept callin ur fone but theres apparently no reception in the arcade. but wen i found out that the turn out was…well…not good then i didnt feel so bad hehe. I hope the Norcalerz will seriously go the next time they say they will tho. woulda been some great matches. PEace!
But I am pointing out that there was no reason for you to lose to me. I don’t even understand the game mechanics quite yet. I’m also being honest when I said that I would really like to see the vids, because I actually do want to re-evaluate my Faust game…playing in the tourney has actually made me consider taking up the game seriously
More so when Combofiend kicked my ass and later told me all of the weaknesses in my game
