King of the Couch Tournaments other than Madden
« on: August 13, 2010, 01:14:04 pm »
King of the Couch would like us to run some Halo Reach tournaments after it comes out.  I have never run a Halo tournament so either Skorcher will have to help or actually run these or we can just leave Halo to the experts HXC.  Let me know if there are any other kind of tournaments you might want us to run.  Thinking about some Smash Brothers, again, never have run one of those either, but just throwing it out there to see if anyone would be interested in either one of them.

Well, we are definitely running Reach events but we are not tied to KOTC at all.

I knew you would be, we don't want to run those, but we can put you on the KOTC web site if you are interested at all.  May get some more players from Texas that way.  Let me know

Thanks for the offer.

I think that we will stay with just running these on our own. KOTC is just not something we want to be a part of because of a few issues with GameStop.

But again we do appreciate the offer.

Well KOTC isn't actually sponsored by GameStop even though they claim to be. We have talked with a few of the district managers and they have been throwing away our HxC flyers because of that thinking that we were KOTC.

Tell KOTC to give us a call... there is alot of red flags about them that just dont sit right with us and the district managers. I dont want to mess up our relationship with gamestop.... look at this image

http://www.gamestop.com/gs/tournaments/kingofthecouch/default.aspx

First off theres a Gears Of War 1 tournament??? that makes no sense at all everyone knows thats not going down, not even a gears of war 2 tourney. Error number 2, they got games on their flyer thats not even out yet like Black Ops they dont know rules settings and connection issues, final and obvious error, Halo 3 ODST tournament? are you serious? Thats not even a competitive multiplayer game. Its obvious whomever did the flyer didnt even know what they were doing. So have them call us and we will talk about it. We are going to put you guys on our site and continue to push people towards okmadden events. Please do the same.
