We always promote our tournaments all over Facebook/SRK/Twitter/etc. Melee is the only game looking to have a ~10 turnout.

we have a tournament on that day in rochester too. what are the chances we can get you guys to come to it for marvel and SF?
We already have this date set with the venue and advertised all over facebook, we can't change it. Even if so, I don't believe any of us have the money or time for such a trip. :/

Is it a Dustbowl tournament that day? We're hoping to head up there one day to play with everyone.

Feel free to post there and start building hype, we actually need this one to be really really big, so we need EVERYONE to show up for that one.

2. Rochester is holding a tournament on the last saturday of each month. if thats also the consistent date that youve decided on, let me know now.

3. There is a still a tournament happening in Syracuse (closer to you guys than Rochester) on the 20th. the saturday before our events. Im looking up the info now and will edit it into this post

1. Thanks man!

2. Oh, that's good to know. Nah, we just hold monthlies, and that happened to be the date available to us by the venue.

3. Thanks for the info, I'll check em out as well.

4. I'm writing this before checking out the channel at all, but that sounds cool. Spread the word for us & more content for the channel is a good look. I take care of all video/media/etc so message me about it if you'd like. :D

It's unfortunate that this month + the summer in general are so crowded with tourneys, it's hard not to step on anyone's toes. Thankfully we're a good 5 hours away, so I don't think we'll take much, if any from each other. We certainly want to work with the community (Smash and general FGC) to have the most compatible dates for everyone, players and TOs alike.

Agreed.

The tournaments will probably get better after the summer as well. I dont know about your area, but Rochester is rife with colleges and the gaming events pick up greatly when we get the influx of new students.

Also, I will PM you the info for the youtube channel. Any matches you save of any fighting games, traditional, 3d, anime, smash or otherwise would be great to put there.

Oh yeah? That's pretty sweet. Not many travel-worthy colleges around here, so we usually lose out on entrants or stay about the same once school starts.

Thank you sir, I'll check that PM now.

I would've loved to come to this had I known soon enough to get off for work. I'll try to make the next one.
Ahh man, I didn't know you lived so close! lol nice comeback at EVO. :)

Hope to see you next month dude! We're looking at August 24th as a possible date so far, no definite arrangements with the venue yet, though.

I'll be there. Would've been at the last one if I'd known about it but that's my own fault really, I should be checking Atlantic North more.

Overall attendance, we get anywhere from 30-65.

MvC and SF brackets are usually 15-25 people.

Melee has only been like 6-8 so far, but now more people are finding out about it (Hax was nice enough to post it in the NYC SSBM FB group), attendance is looking up. TWebb is always there when he's not too busy IRL, Swiftbass, Alukard, and DJNintendo have come by before as well.
