San Antonio: 19 (:rock:)
Austin: 4 (guess everyone went to MWC :arazz:)
Houston: 10 (:smokin:)
Brownsville: 3 people
Various others: 6
J.D**: Congrats on winning 3rd strike (again :tup:)
Toan/STFU: Can’t believe I kept throwing fireballs like a idiot wtf was I thinking:sweat: Oh well I deserve to eat a Chun super for that. Congrats on winning Marvel.
Spin4U: Thanks for housing people and helping to run matches. Now that we’ve finally met, maybe we can get some games in July.
Gene:** Quit beasting! Splitsies in CvS 2 and 4th in 3S. Good shit son.
Carnevil: Funny seeing you two years later. Good job on coming back from loser’s for second place in Marvel. They should have the new Roost done this fall at UTSA, so maybe I’ll start playing Marvel then.
Luiz and the rest of the Valley players: MAVEL BABY! Thanks for coming all the way up to San Antonio. Better post those matches!
Guilty Gear peeps:**
Pozer: thanks for being the #1 hype man yet again and congrats on winning.
Crimson D: nice to meet you. Thanks for the tips. Let’s get some games in next time.
Nick: Bleh Slayer is a bitch to fight. And I had to play you twice at that :wtf: Good games.
Skyking: Thanks for helping me run GG and bringing stuff. Let’s get in more Guilty Gear at UTSA this fall.
Tekken peeps: Jim, Ramir, Super Nacho, Homer Pimpson, and the rest, thanks for coming. Next time bring some PS3’s, I know we can get a better Tekken turnout in San Antonio.
Good games to everyone I played and sorry if I didn’t get a shout out to ya.
Final words from yours truly:
Aight, so I know it was a friggin sardine can. Sorry about that. The owner has a habit of changing the store almost monthly, and this is by far one of his worst layouts. Next time I have something I’m making sure it stays the way it was my Brawl tournament back in April, with much more space.
Now I have a better grasp on how to deal with running multiple games, I’ll divy up the brackets between 2 or 3 laptops so we can keep track of matches easier.
Finally, I am already taking feedback from everyone and I’m shooting for a follow up tournament in August, hopefully before classes start, or actually maybe one week after the first classes (nobody does anything important the first week :china:)
I have someone’s copy of CvS 2. I’m guessing it’s Nem’s or Skip’s, but when we took it out of the PS2, nobody claimed it. If it’s yours, please post.
This is the MC, calling it a night.
