I can't completely confirm on going yet even though I'll try my best to make it. But I was curious on the ruleset you are planning to use on SC2. All characters legal and 3 rounds? Anything else would make me extremely sad.
Level|Up Series Releases Registration Cap Numbers for SoCal Regionals 2014

While Valle stated that caps may be increased if they are able to secure further resources and space, it would be in your best interest to register for the event early if you want to compete in a game with a smaller bracket.

  • Soulcalibur V – 64
  • Soulcalibur II HD Online – 64
I might look into this. Would be pretty fun to go have fun and meet some new people. Would probably be the saltiest person their and the only one wearing a CM Punk shirt. XD
It is official- I will be in attendance for SoCal Regionals and I intend on winning again. I'm going to throw this out here, ya'll-


1.) AlexJ FT5 | 20$
2.) Signia FT5 | 20$
3.) Juece FT5 | 20$
4.) BlueBoyB FT5 | 40$ (Considering Juece is betting 20$ on you)
5.) Hates ft5 | 20$
6.) Tomahawk FT5 | 20$
7.) Never_Relent FT5 | 20$
8.) Zane FT5 | 20$
9.) MarkKOed ft5 20$

I'm open to any other opponents willing to play for 10$/20$. If you're newer to the scene, don't be afraid to approach me for some free sets, though. I also don't mind playing nay of the players listed above in casual sets, but would prefer we play a MM, still.

I won't make it to SCR. I have school that Saturday... unless Tomahawk (or whoever is running it) delays my match until I get off school.
You can always show up for an hour or so, not join the tournament, and play casuals. We can do our MM then, too.
Alright! Can't wait for this one xD
Zane if ya can make it for casuals I'd love a match agaisnt ya, I wonder if Snort gonna make it too
Yeah me too. I want to play against everyone, possibly one after another since I wont be there for long. I don't promise MMs though... gotta pay for school and all.
