Special Announcement:

Recently, Alan “St1ckBuG” Bakes of Team St1ckBuG has been dropping hints of a Japanese qualifier for the upcoming Northeast Championships (NEC) XIII. At Summer Jam 6 this past weekend, he officially announced the event, which will bring three players from Japan to compete at NEC XIII, December 1-2. H.H of Japan hasposted details for the tournament on his blog.
The event, called “Team St1ckBuG x OgreLive Presents NEC2012 Japanese Player Selection Tournament,” will take place on Sunday October 7 at Akihabara Clark Studio in Chiyoda, Tokyo. The games for the event will be Persona 4 Arena and BlazBlue Continuum Shift EXTEND, both on console versions. Both titles will use single-game, double-elimination format.
The 1st and 2nd place finishers in the P4U tournament and 1st place in BBCSEX will have both flight and room costs covered to attend NEC XIII this December. The tournament will be streamed on both TwitchTV and Nico Nico Live.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Special announcement 2:

It's been a long time coming, but TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 is finally here and ready for tournament play! Whether you're a veteran of the TEKKEN franchise or a new player altogether, the TEKKEN community is always welcoming players of all walks of life into their ranks. TEKKEN has long since been a part of tournaments across the country, especially here on the east coast.

It's for that very reason that we're very proud to announce the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 Circuit! This circuit will bring the winners of the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 tournaments from Northeast Championships in Philadelphia, PA, to FINAL ROUND XVI in Atlanta, GA, to East Coast Throwdown 5 in Morristown, NJ, all the way out to the EVOLUTION 2012 World Finals tournament.

The east coast is a huge place when you really think about it. Not everyone is able to travel up and down from Pennsylvania to Georgia then back up to New Jersey, especially if they come from states nowhere near these three. That's why we want to reward our winners with not only the prize money they've earned, but with the opportunity to go to a part of the country they may not have been able to see and compete in before.

The rules to this tournament circuit are simple. If you win the TEKKEN TAG TOURNAMENT 2 tournament at Northeast Championships 13 in Philadelphia, then you will be awarded a plane ticket to FINAL ROUND XVI. If you win FINAL ROUND XVI, you will be flown to East Coast Throwdown 5. If you win ECT5, you will be flown to Evolution in Vegas. If you're local to any of these tournaments that you've won a trip to, we will pay for your hotel room instead of the flight. The four of us from Big E Gaming, FINAL ROUND, and East Coast Throwdown want to make sure TTT2 is the most memorable TEKKEN for you guys yet, and what better way than to fly you around the country to represent your home turf?!

Now that that's all said and done, get your pads and sticks out and GET READY FOR THE NEXT BATTLE!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GAME RULES:
Unless otherwise stated all console tournaments will be played on PS3.

All singles tournaments will be standard format 2/3 games for normal matches and 3/5 for finals matches. (UMVC3 will be 3/5)

Team tournaments are single match the entire tournament including all finals matches.

SCHEDULE:

~General Game Rules~
Best 2/3 Games (Best 3/5 for Winners, Losers, and Grand Finals. Loser must reset brackets in Grand Finals before winning)
Default Time
No Handicap
Either player may request a blind pick
Winner must report match to a tournament organizer immediately after the match.
You are responsible for your stick, or pad, or hitbox. You are coming to a tournament, bring your equipment. I have to bring my stuff to run it, there's no reason you can't show up with what you need to play.


~Acceptable Controllers~
Any wired arcade stick is cleared.
Any wired PS2/PS1 pad with a PS3/USB Converter is cleared.
Any wired PS3 Pad is allowed. (THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE WIRELESS CONTROLLERS WITH USB CABLE)
The only allowed native wireless PS3 controller is the Dualshock 3. The Battery MUST be removed from the controller, you must bring your own USB cable.
If you are playing a game that is on PC, your controller/stick must be plug and play on a PC with no extra software (THIS INCLUDES MOTIONJOY). This means no Dualshock 3s, and no older PS3 TEs.
If you are using a Hitbox or keyboard style controller, your controller must be SOCD Cleaned (http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.php?threads/socd-cleaner-kit-now-available.148881/ will explain this).


If you have a question about a controller feel free to ask me.

~Arcana Heart Rules~
Winner is character locked (Arcana change o.k.)
Loser may change character, as well as Arcana.
Simple Mode is allowed.

~Aquapazza Rules~
Winner is character locked (Partner change o.k.)

They are, sort of.

I will be so hype if we can get an official UNiB build.

Other than that, has Melty singles been moved to Sunday? or is that just an inconsistency in the schedule?

I think they didn't really understand your request, honestly. Can we get someone to translate what you want communicated to French Bread in Japanese and then posted on Twitter?

Also: is this something that Big E asked you to do, or is this something you did on your own? Just curious.

This is something I was looking into on my own and wanted to relay to Big E if it looked like it might happen.

And yeah I know they likely misunderstood me, I'm working on getting help :P

As I stated in IRC after Summer Jam, NEC will be the last Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code major I run, as long as it's on PC.
 (If there is a PS3/360 port, we will revisit it. If It's a good port, we're back in there.)
Frankly, this port is ass. PC tournaments are a pain because I can't even get consistent lag across setups.
Because this is my last MBAACC major, I at least want to help things go out with a bang.
I want to get three setups that can run the game as perfectly as possible, that includes a monitor.
I want to get this settled in advance, so that we can focus on everything else.
1.)
2.)
3.)

Wait, if you're not running Melty Blood, then who i....

welp

Honestly, the most important thing to have is good monitors. Laptop setups are bad to play on specifically because of the display lag on laptop displays is somewhere between bad and horrific.

If my PC is still working, I should be able to provide that & someone I know maybe able to bring a monitor. Honestly though, I don't blame you, it's too much hassle & people that say it's not are either a damn lie or masochist that don't know what it's like.

If someone wants to run a Melty side tournament, beyond NEC, they're more than welcome.
I'd run this game for another 3 years, if it wasn't on PC.
It's a nightmare to have all of these non-standard setups, with different lag in different places. I at least want to make sure that NEC has proper equipment. Anime may have a stream going, more info on that later.

@dumba keep me updated, anything we can get is great.

Some extra info, more to come.


For those who want to see the venue:

https://www.facebook.com/events/512870628726577/
https://www.facebook.com/BigEGaming
http://www.holidayinn.com/hotels/us/en/philadelphia/phlps/hoteldetail

I really like where the venue is located. Parking is free. Chickies & Petes is down the street and going to be packed on Sunday for football. I'm getting some crab fries fasho.

http://chickiesandpetes.com/location/south-philadelphia/

They just built a dining & entertainment complex a couple of blocks away which will definitely be poppin on Sunday night for the Eagles/Cowboys game.

http://xfinitylive.com/

5 minutes away you can get beer, doughnuts, liquor, Popeyes, smokes, cheesesteaks, Burger King, McDonalds, pretzels, KFC, strippers, etc. 8 minutes away you can get barbeque, WaWa, Wendys, Chick Fil-A, iHop, pizza, chinese, etc.

I would suggest coming early and going out and see the actual city. $2 gets you on the subway and downtown in a couple of minutes where there's plenty of places to eat, shop, drink, go clubbing, and see shit. Don't just sit in the hotel all weekend playing games. Start planning.

There wasn't a stream last year & I doubt if there will be for this year, pretty sure if anything, people'll just save the archives & upload them in their free time.
