    Q. Is this the only Season’s Beatings this year?
    A. No way! Our main, fall event is also in the works, where we put together insane special-event grudge matches and our usual crazy FGC spectacle.

    Q. Isn’t this the same weekend as Shadowloo Showdown?
    A. Yes; we expect to attract talent from across North America as usual, losing only a few names to the Australian epic -- and SB and SS together will be a stream monster’s dream being opposite time zones!

    Q. “Summer Slam”?
    A. This event is replacing the annual “Summer Slam” regional we’ve run the last few years. Just refer to it as “Season’s Beatings” for ease and brevity. No relation to Summer Jam!

    We in there!

    Thinking of running the MK9 tourney in one day, on 2nd stream then run a special exhibition on Spook's stream on Sunday. Team Battle? For charity? LET'S DO IT!

    Trying my best to get up there. Depends on whether or not I can weasel a couple free hotel nights out of my dad's stockpile of them -_-

    It's the weekend immediately after finals for me so I school is not a factor for once :O

    Any way we can petition for MK to be 3 out of 5 games? MLG did this and I think a majority of the players prefer it to 2 of 3 games. Anyways, I'm trying to make it out to this one, and so is most of the GGA team.

    boooo. damn. Well, i am thinking of doing all of the MK9 in one day, but Sunday I'd like to do a special exhibition and I'd like you & D there for it.

    I am actually considering it, but if we do MK9 in 1 day, might be easier & faster to do 2/3. Keep on discussing it with me.

    I have somehow performed some sort of black magic trick where I am able to attend this event and stay engaged at the same time. I will either pre-register today or just register during Console Combat this weekend. Look forward to seeing everyone there!

    When will you know for sure that the MK9 tourney will or will not be run in one day? I only ask because if it's one day I'm almost positive I'd be able to go since college is out for me. Thanks in advance.

    Edit: Additionally, is anybody from Southeastern Michigan going to this? I'd love to carpool, but it's contingent on it being a one day event:). It's about a 3 hour drive for me where I'm at now.

    Man it would be great if it was one day! I'm broke as hell and this would allow me and Sivart to make it.

    bits of news:

    MK9 tourney will be a one day event on Saturday, May 5th.

    MK pools will be streamed, all the way through grand finals by Medina4life. So expect a godlike stream on Saturday!

    On Sunday, we'll be doing a special event (to be announced later) on Spook's stream, somewhere in the 12-2pm time frame.
