Attendees: Please post in this thread to confirm that you are attending so I can begin a head count. Also, please list what games you will be playing. If can bring set ups, please do so, as it will speed along the process of the tournament greatly!

A lot of Shreveport people are coming. Like around 10-12, I believe. Will be bringing several for MK. Can I post this on Test Your Might to see if I can get more? Also, do you need any systems for MK9 and will it be streamed at all?

Any idea on how many people are at least confirmed to come? The drive is only 1 hr and a 1/2 for Shreveport, but it’s silly to drive and play against ourselves.

I’m sure the more setups they have, the smoother things will run. As far as streaming, I’m not sure what Deezee wants to do, but I’d like to at least get top 4 for MK. It really depends on what the schedule looks like.

The Facebook event page has 28 confirmed. I know the guys from Little Rock are coming for sure. Dallas is a maybe.


Well, if I get a guy from Oklahoma to come, he could bring his own stream equipment (and really if we can get enough people together) and we could have an MK devoted stream if you guys didn’t care.

I’m not sure we’ll have the bandwidth to run two streams. This will be my first time streaming from this venue, so I’m not sure what the upload speeds are gonna look like.

Central Arkansas is coming; we’re working on Dallas. Oklahoma SHOULD come, but apparently the entire state only has one car.

APPARENTLY this is true. lol. I’ve had this same experience talking to the Okies, but hopefully they can come. :slight_smile: I know for MK, several people are coming from Dallas and maybe Houston. Are the Arkansas MK players coming?

The OK people I know have confirmed they’re not coming. I’m hoping others come, but who knows. The Arkansas MK players have shown interest, but have not confirmed yet.

maybe ill come and play smash


Stream is live! http://www.twitch.tv/rawkusx

Always a blast to hang out with you guys. GGs all!
