Head count: Who’s all going to Cinderslam 2?


Because penis jokes are original…


On another note… you going to Cinderslam or are you still hibernating/Retired?

I’ll let yall know by tomorrow. I hope I can make it.

edit: is this a one day tournament?

Yes, on Saturday May 21st…

Nobody’s original post will ever be as epic as mine was.

i’m going



Where/when is it?

I am going as well but I need a ride as I wont have access to my car that day. So somebody let me tag along please.

Edit: GGs to Jas in random Marvel sessions

Of course I’m in…

Hey, is it just me, or does this look like 10x?


Orel, can you add the Powerplay MK tourney to the OP asap? It’s for tomorrow at 2:00PM, at PP lol. I think the entry is 5$.

Also, I’m so glad this day is almost over, its been a complete clusterfuck at work.

Anyway, see you guys at PP tomorrow, hopefully. Peace out.

Gg’s Sev.

I kinda like playing marvel with no assist usage,it shows me just how random and mashy that game really is when you can see what’s going on lol
Also fuck tech throws in that game lol

I’ll probably be there tomorrow for the MK tourney unless i have work to do during the day. I also need a ride for cinderslam if not then it’s star ocean for me all day that day lol

Yes… yes it does. Lol. Anybody hosting anytime soon?

I spit my drank out duckie LMFAO

i think at this point it is safe to assume that that is, in fact, him until someone provides evidence to the contrary.

@MemphisPlayers: Ratings have been updated for MVC3 and SSF4.

Quick notes: (1) Bonus points were awarded to the Ranbat winners (like stated before the season started) and all match points that were distributed earlier were adjusted to accommodate- if you don’t understand, just ask me at the next gathering; (2) Sorry took so long, had to add a bunch of events/players/etc… I really need to finish up getting this shit automated, getting there though…

Totally agree. After the 3rd time of actually looking at it, I’m going with a 100% “yes”.

Thanks for updating dude, I know how much work goes into that. I still apparently don’t get the formula, because I was WAY off on the point spread between 1st and 2nd, and where Jas and Sev ended up in the brackets, but I know it works.

I was NOT expecting 5th, btw. I feel like I just painted a big target on my back.
