Wow, what a weekend! Klassic MK is officially back on the map, and the thumbtack on that map is on Cincinnati, Ohio.
For this year's events, we had 4 featured tournaments - 1v1 UMK3 was the main event, with some EXTREMELY hype tournaments for 4 Player/Teams 2v2 Kombat, MK Trilogy on N64, and Randper Kombat! We were also able to get exhibitions of the latest release of UMK3:TE, and MK2+ !! We had a main stream and a Youtube simulcast. We learned a lot of about streaming this way and found out what worked well as well as means of improvement.
At one point in the broadcast, we were OVER 1000 VIEWERS!! HUGE thanks to Kombat Network - @Shock @Konqrr @Mikemetroid were all in the stream at one point. Props to @HellblazerHawkman for helping get the word out on TYM, and EVERYONE ELSE (forgive me if I'm missing someone, pipe up!) who helped up our view count!
Another big thanks goes to @YourMKArcadeSource for his donation to the pot bonus - He also co-owns a little place called The Arcade in Wichita, KS - you should go check it out sometime. We also had contributions from @Cienfuegos, Magister (shapeshifter), myself, Twin Paradox, @Trukuu777, the PostMortem brothers and ZPaul2Fresh8 over at MortalKombatPlus.com, and lovey01. @9.95 provided the trophies - excellent work as always my friend!
And I believe the BIGGEST thanks of all goes to our venue owner, Jesse at Arcade Legacy in Cincinnati. A SUPER LOW $10 venue fee per player that was good for 2 days, tournament and casuals use of THREE MK arcade machines that he wheeled to the venue space, full access to the arcade, all of his streaming equipment, and multiple setups for consoles and other items - absolutely amazing.
This year's cast of kombatants saw a mix of fresh faces along with the returning cast from previous interations. We had a total of 21 participants in this Event! He wasn't able to come down Saturday, but @THTB made the trip down for 2v2 and Randper on Sunday - awesome to finally meet him!
I'll let some of the other guys chime in as well for their input on the events, and I'll type up one of my own as well, but here's probably what you all wanted - the results!!
