Sorry, that was a typo on the website. Here’s the registration schedule and associated costs:
May 11th - May 30th: Early Bird Registration($20 cover)
May 31th - June 27th: Registration($30 cover)
June 28th - June 31st: Registration CLOSED
July 1st 8:00 AM, Marriot: Emergency Registration ($45 cover)
$45 cover is fucking BEASTLY, I LIKE IT! So many gamers don’t understand how important pre-registration is and how much time it saves tournament organizers to know who is going to show up, and to be able to pre-make the brackets BEFORE the tournament, with only minimal adjustments after that on-site. Good work!
I’m disappointed that after numerous emails and conversations/ATTEMPTED conversations with more than half of the Evo staff, that despite being staff at Evo 2004 and trying to help out wherever I can in many other ways… not one of you guys were able to tell me before you posted it up here that qualifier dates coincided with the Australian nationals. Courtesy, guys.
So, the nationals only overlap the west qualifer, right? That’s not necessarily a big deal, how many people were planning to come to the west qualifer and not the vegas one? They’re like, what, over a month apart?
How do we know what games will be on what day? I’ve got some stuff going on through those days, but I’ve been looking foward to this all year.
I’m planning on entering MvC2, so I’d stay only long enough for that section of Evo West. Anyone?
What are the chances that a relative schedule will be posted any time soon? I understand that these tournaments take time and that often times the schedule will fluctuate. I ask because I need to let my team for Guilty Gear know whether or not I can make it to the tournament, and it will depend heavily on what time the Guilty Gear portion of the tournament will take place.
