Hope to see You there!

All rules and information here may go through some slight modifications so check back regularly

Cool stuff! Hopefully I can make it out there for the one of your sessions! See if I can be a better player! What time does the sessions start on tuesday/thursdays?

From what I know 8:30 you can ask in the li thread in match finder people prob look at that more. I don’t live out there no more :sad:

Hey BigKilla we usually get things rolling by 830 9 and go anywhere from 12-2am, it all depends on the night but if you can make it down sometime you’ll def. be in for some GGs!

Sounds good!! Tuesdays i can’t make it because of work :sad:, but i can def. make the thurdays one. If you need any help setting up just let me know and i’ll come there early if you guys need any help. Also if you need a extra set up, i’ll bring my 360 and my tv (its a 19’ inch hdtv). Looking forward for some GGs!!

Not sure I can make it saturday. No money, no gas, no entry. but well see

i’ll try to be down there twice a week to support the scene. i really need some training though. im untapped potential (yea, right.:rolleyes:)

I’m in for Saturday

An extra xbox would definetly be appreciated Killa!! Plus were waving tournament fee for a game of your choice if you supply a system as well!

Why not make the venue fee 5$ and the pot money 10$ ? Would be more motivation more money in the pot

I’m coming only for MK9 and would like to see increased game fee as well to build a larger pot, regardless of what the door fee ends up being.

Hypothetically if you had 10 people enter a MK tournament with a 70/30 split for 1st/2nd at $5 a man to enter and a $10 venue fee, that would be $35 for first and $15 for 2nd. So whoever won would end winning 20 bucks, 2nd place would break even, and the other 8 guys would be out 15 bucks each.
