[Jul 11, 2014] EVO 2014 SCV and SC2 Side Tournament (Las Vegas, NV)

EVO 2014 is rapidly approaching and much the same as last year we are not included in the main lineup. However, we are planning to host a side tournament for Soul Calibur V and Soul Calibur 2! @Revin122, TwinGalaxies co host @Jennifer Zhang,and I have all stepped up and want to do our best to make this a great experience for you guys. However to make this all possible, we are going to need your help. Yes, we need interest from you guys to be able to have this tournament. We need you guys to attend!!




I understand that this is all last minute. However, I still firmly believe this event will be exciting and is not an event you are going to want to miss. Similar circumstances happened last year and we still ended up getting great numbers along with a very well-run exciting tournament. I understand that this is a selfish request. Not every one of you will be able to attend, but for those of you who can please try your best to make it. We are trying our best to make this event as great as we possibly can. This is not an event you want to miss out on!



As many of you already know, EVO is the premier video game tournament for fighting games and is held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fighting game players from around the world are drawn together by their common universal love of fighting games. In fact, EVO's location alone makes this event worth travelling to. Like what was said in last year's thread; Getting some drinks and walking down the strip with your fellow fighting game players is always a terrific experience.






Finally, to make sure you guys attend and to help generate interest for the tournament I have asked some well-known community players for their support. @Ramon @Zane @Revin122, @Alex.J, @GreatOne1939 @Rikki_TikkiTavi and a couple of other well-known community members have all voiced their support and would love to see SCV at EVO. @Revin122 has even graciously stepped up and offered $500 in donations to the pot! (Big shoutouts to you my friend.)
@Zane has stepped up and offered ANOTHER $500 in donations to the SCV pot but only on ONE condition. We have to get at LEAST 60 players, any less and the pot bonus will remain at only $500


Current SCV pot: $650 ($1150 if we get 60+ entrants)

Current SC2 pot: $1000



UPDATE: Over the past week many members of our community have shown interest in a SC2 side-tournament. I promised I would add SC2 to the lineup if enough interest was shown, and to be honest more than enough interest was shown (We even got interest from Japan!). As a way of sparking interest for SC2, @Revin122 has once again generously stepped up and offered $500 in donations to the SC2 pot. To promote even MORE interest, @Jer has offered another $100 to the pot. To further support SC2 at EVO, @Talim JP has unselfishly stepped up and offered $100 more to the pot!

Good news, @banes has unselfishly stepped up and offered yet another $100 in donations to the SC2 pot!! Thanks to him the SC2 pot current stands at $800





$20 Entry for SCV
$20 Entry for SC2


$30 entry if you enter BOTH games. If you do this, $20 goes to the pot of the Soul Calibur game of your choosing, while $10 will go to pot of the other SC game. This is to help bond the community together and encourage cross-participation for both our beloved games!

If you are even slightly considering this tournament I ask that you please reply to this thread or use the RSVP system. Show us and other players your interest! I am convinced that this is going to be one of the best events of this year. For those of you attending, see you guys there!

EDIT: @Tomahawk has joined our team. However, he said he still isn't sure wether he will be able to help much or even at all. Nevertheless, I am excited to have somebody who has previous experience running an EVO side-tourney on our team :).

I seem to remember beating you every best of 3 we called over the weekend...Classic Jer trash!


But yeah...fuck...I always go to Vegas over Evo, but I haven't entered anything for a couple years, and was just going to totally ignore EVo this year (LVH, really?!) , but I got chance to play SC2 and, fuck, it was actually really fun (even though I'm old and shitty now).

I haven't bought the badge yet, but yeah, I'm in, and I'll put $100 to the pot.

I know we are planning on straming - how do the EVO staff feel about uploading vids from side tournaments? Cause I'll tape as many matches as I can, for posterity, and a head-hunting $5 bonus to anyone who beats Jer, cause seriously, fuck that guy (up to $30 total).
You can tape as many matches as you like. Also, thanks for the pot bonus :)
 
You guys should try to get the JPN players in this, especially Itazan. I'm sure he'll be there for USF4. Hes by far the best Astaroth i've ever played.
 
We're getting about 90000 players just for SCV. That's just an estimate though... we could get more. Also Ramon is gonna be there, that's all EVO needs cuz he's awesome
 
You gotta be shitting me.....the pot for SC2 is bigger than the pot for SC5??!! I might as well not even bother practicing SC5 since I'm gonna go 2 and out anyway, let me make sure my 'WATAHS' are on point.
 
I didn't know about the registration by date and missed it. They told me there are day passes available at the door friday and saturday. Can i still compete in Soul Calibur 2? Im flying in from canada. Bought my flight over a month ago This has been a real cooler...

If they told you that day passes are going to be available this year - then yes you should be able to.

This was literally the reason that I'm coming, when I heard Ramon was gonna be there, I didn't have any better reasons to not play.

Piggy I'll fuck up jer for you
Hooray!

Prac'd w/Shen (AKA Pad God) yesterday.
Asked him to go and get my $ back, haha.
He tries but may there may communication difficulties, please take care of him!
Have good gamez and fun, wish I could be there.
 
Nice, SC2 tourney lines up perfect with my TTT2 draw. As soon as I'm eliminated from TTT2 (and since my first match is against EBM, that'll be sooner rather than later), I'll head over for pre-tournament sandbagging/money matches.

I'll put up an open invite for a ft5, $20 with any international player in SC2 - it'd be great to play some new people.
