Box Arena is on Tuesdays Jinx. Its canceled for next week though. I can ask around and see if they'd be interested in having KoF, but space is tight. The reason I brought it up was that there was suddenly all this interest on the FB groups out of nowhere. Seemed really weird to me.

Speaking of Box Arena:

I was there tonight and near the end people were talking about KoF. There is definitely interest and people may want it to be part of the Box Arena lineup. People are asking in the SD Fight Scene and Box Arena FB groups "yo what happened to kof13?"

I think you guys need to make a showing or get in contact with the Box Arena dudes and see whats up. People may have temporarily dropped KoF due to the release of SFxT, but now that people have decided that they want nothing to do with that game anymore, if you guys promote it, I'm sure people will start playing 13 again.

Those are on Thursdays right? I can probably make it out to them occasionally but not very often.

Anyway, do we have CO on Monday?

I'm in the area as of today. Anything going on in the next week and a half?

So Rhythmaxxed tried some netplay earlier. I felt it wasn't too bad but we got some crazy lagspikes sometimes. I added you as a friend on xbl Jinx, I wanna try some netplay with you soon, before I leave town, so I can truly determine whether or not my connection is ass.

And I know you asked on Dustloop Jinx, but I'll answer you here: I do play GG. It was my first fighter ever. I could've sworn I told you. Anyway, yeah, you can bet on me playing it again, for real this time, if it comes back in style. I honestly half expect it to get a final death like Third Strike did when the re-release comes around.

The video quality doesn't bother me but the sound feels really bad for some reason. If you could fix that, it'd be great.

Good shit. I look forward to seeing those vids.

Can't really make it to TTF. Now that I know my schedule for next quarter I can say that that isn't going to change. At least I don't think it will.

I didn't know there was gonna be a team madcatz major in april, though I'm pretty pumped about it now that you've mentioned it. I'm definitely going to spend a bit of extra time on KoF now that I have something to prepare for.

Last thing: I might now make it to CO this week. I've got a paper due anywhere from 7-10pm that day, so its possible I might be working on it till the last minute, though I hope I won't have to. Beyond that I'm going to be gone for almost two weeks after that, so I will definitely miss the CO meetup after this one.

A real tournament would require real people, and the sad truth is that we don't have enough people here who are committed to this game right now.

My thoughts on having a "legit" tournament is that this is premature. Unless it is an ungodly amount of money, the prize pot alone is probably not going to provide enough incentive for people to come. But if we do want to have a tournament in the future, we will need a few things:

- First we'll need a venue. It can't be somebody's house, it needs to be an actual place. Frubble hosted Valentine's Day Massacre and other Box Arena related stuff/tournaments, so I would say that is probably the best place in SD right now.

- Second, we'd need confirmed setups, as in setups that we know are going to show up no matter what. At least 4 or more. They would also have to have Asus monitors so that nobody could haggle or complain about lag or other such bullshit. The setups would also have to be all the same system, either ps3 or xbox.

- Third, we need people. 16 or more confirmed shows. Why? Because any less than that you get a shitty 8 man bracket or an even worse round robin format. The tournament could realistically be over in less than an hour if you have less than that number of people.

- Fourth, we'd need hype. Get some big names to show up. The prize pot also contributes to this, but as I mentioned earlier, its not the defining factor on its own. Mainly I think the prize should be large enough that people feel comfortable wasting gas to come out. We'd need to promote it not only on this site but on others. Maybe a fancy youtube video with terrible dubstep like most of the other trailers you see on youtube.

-Last, we would need to put it on a day that no major or other event, local or otherwise, is occurring. Is there is a KoF tournament somewhere else in SoCal, and that date conflicts with ours, I'm willing to bet that people won't show up for ours. In order to increase turnout, we'd most certainly need to put it on a weekend, either a Friday or a Saturday. Another thing is that we should not do it regularly. Biweekly events, in my opinion, tend to get less people total than a single event once every few months. This is because people say "oh, I can miss this one, the next one will be in two weeks anyway." You'll have a constant population of people who won't come because it isn't that special of an event.

All of these points are opinion only, I have never ran a tournament or have been intricately linked to one. But these issues come from my experience going to shitty Blazblue biweekly tournaments at Cal State Long Beach, and other scattered events in SoCal. In particular, I look at the event called "West Toast" that is held at Family Fun Arcade every once in awhile. I tried to go to bikweekly tournaments at FFA and it was just too far and too expensive, but to go out there for one day for a "bigger" event was worth it for me. It was worth it for a lot of other people too, as several high level players showed up as well as locals who spend all their time at FFA anyway.

The last thing I'd like to say about this is that, yeah our scene is pretty bad currently. Three dudes, that barely qualifies as a scene. But thats how BB started in SD too, I was there for it. It was 4 dudes instead of 3 and just by sticking around we turned that into almost 10 people now and that number is going up. It takes time for a scene to grow, so you just gotta be patient. I think a big problem is that people we see at CO always seem interested in KoF, but always pull out the "oh I'll just get wrecked if I play" excuse. It annoys me that it seems some people see a game whose combos are more than two hits and suddenly think that its too complex and they can't get into it. I think we should try being a bit more upfront about trying to get new people to play at CO and easing up a bit when or if we play them so we don't crush their self-esteem. I hope we can get more people interested, but it just seems to difficult to get people to turn away from Capcom.

I'm coming as soon as my class is over. I'll be there around 8:30. I hope I don't miss out on the tournament.

I leave on Saturdays. Friday nights I either go to or host a Blazblue event so my Fridays are busy. I usually go up Saturday and come down on Monday. That'll probably change when next quarter rolls around.

I am down for trying online. Admittedly I haven't played more than two matches online, and both of those were atrocious. I'm willing to try and connect with you guys to see if we can get some good games in, but if those connections are garbage we should stick to offline meetups. CO is what I can make it to most often. We definitely should work something out though. I agree with you that we need to see SD represent at the next major.

SD: When are we ever going to see you guys visit a UCI Ranbat?

When it ain't on a Friday.

I probably won't be at CO tonight. I have a midterm due tonight by email and another test to study for tomorrow.

Btw, thanks for the info Rhythmaxed. I got in touch with them and we're working something out.

I'm trying to find a new location for the Blazblue scene in SD. Me and another guy alternate hosting gatherings each week but much to our surprise the amount of people who show up keeps growing, were at about 10 right now, and its kind of making it inconvenient for us to host at our houses/apartments. So I'm trying to switch over to Frubble since they do the Box Arena too.
