I was thinking about going. It's a 2 hour drive for me. I read the rules and it has me a bit reluctant.

There is a 64 player limit and it is first come first serve, plus it says you are not allowed to line up for the event before 8 AM (I don't know if this will be enforced by anyone though). I can only imagine the chaos that it would be if you were not allowed to line up before 8, people would be waiting just far enough back so that they weren't on the property-then at 8 you have to race to the doors. Having to drive all that way and not making the 64 player limit would really suck.

Then there are the rules. 4 player free for all with items on? It is more based on luck then skill. Anyone could easily be knocked out in the first round.

Those prizes though...all expense paid trip to New York, 3DS, the game itself, and $250. It may be worth the 2 hour trip to have a shot at that.

This one is the closest to me. Might go and try out my Shulk there. Provided I get there in time.

no one seems to want to tell each other theyre going. Might be the most stacked local we've had, or could be a flop. Heads or tails at this point. Im checking this on wednesday

How was the turnout? I was under the impression people would be camping out in order to be one of the 64 entrants. lul
What would have been a 2-hour drive, plus my boss wouldn't even let me take the day off, all forces applicable preventing me from any possibility of attending. ;>.>

Ideal situation IMO would have been an evening tournament in Raleigh. I live in Wayne County, and driving to Fayetteville and back would have been a bit much for a GameStop tournament (especially at the crack of dawn)
