    In my experience helping w promotion of any offline tourney or online tourney I'm always reminded that we have a community that procrastinates like no other

    With that being said warning signs have been all over twitter recently, was a huge talk a UFGT, and we all discussed how the bitching will ensue as soon as it's announced it's booked and sold out

    If you haven't registered yet and you miss out on Evo please refrain from making threads, crying, etc etc because storms and Tim have done everything possible to keep you guys informed

    when it's sold out it'll be your fault ONLY

    You've only had ONE YEAR to plan for it

  3. me and denzell just registered yesterday luckily, also for the pot that WBput up for mk9, it would be disappointing if there were only like 200 ppl there.moh well, it will be at the faults of those who procrastinate.

    I'm honestly not expecting EVO to pick up MK9 next year, we'll have to wait for MK10 to be able to play MK at EVO again after that.

    Honestly, I go to EVO because it is a great experience every year. Watching all of the top fighting game players from all over the world. Participating is nice too.

    I hope to play hella casuals this year. Give me room numbers to go to!

    I was planning on going, and I probably was, but I have to wait for my grades to come in or my mom wouldn't pay... Today being the last day blows.

    It's not gonna be high... there's no way... there is too much against MK9 at this point

    - it's the oldest of the Evo games
    - (like above) ^ it's not a NEW game that many are playing to try it out
    - people want that patch

    + the players who are there will tear shit up this year
    + why are we complaining? MK9 made it to Evo a 2nd year in a row

    Well it seems I will have to start saving for evo next year because there's no chance of me going this year.
  12. When will brackets be up?
  13. I think tourney's will start having lower turnouts here on out. There's just too many tournaments for a small community such as mk to keep up

    After watching your UMK3 online footage and tournament fights for the last 5-6 years, I will finally be able to get a few games in with Konqrr.

    Im looking forward to it man, I've been a ''fan'' for ages.

    So officially by tomorow, we should be able to do a definite roll-call for everyone based on TYM that is attending, as it won't be a ''maybe'' by then.

    I bet there is around 100 people registered for EVO.
    Bet I'm close. And it'd be funny if VSM didnt register.....

    Cat This guy looks kind of tuff...

    i think ppl just arent sure.. and are not willing to throw out 80 bucks to a unrefundable event they might not be able to make last minute... and it selling out too soon makes things more difficult.. to be honest they shouldnt have sold spectator passes and saved those numbers for competitors only.. if theres like 300 spectator only ppl there.. thats 300 mk players that could of been there instead..

    but since i won this weeks tournament with the nice $300 pot bonus and turn out.. i went ahead and registered, even though im not 100% sure if im going.. cus i rather not end up going last minute and be out 80 bucks.. than to find out i could of gone but i didnt register in time..

    heres hoping for the best!

    Dude, I remember playing you in MK from even before the days of MKD. We played MK1 on the MAME emulator with Kaillera. Remember that? We need to hang out. I'll be staying at the Ceasar hotel. Don't know room number yet.

    Luckily I registered and booked about a month ago.

    My body is ready to get bodied.
  25. Lol I feel bad for the EU guys and whom ever donated to them. Showing up with no one to fight
    I wonder if evo is packed because of how many people think there good at marvel.
