Game X Change - Tournamet Ideas?
« on: August 30, 2010, 11:07:28 am »
We're starting to hold a tournament at our various stores one Saturday per month. We won't be having one in December because we'll be too busy, and if we have one in January, it probably won't be until the last weekend. We don't want to get stuck in a rut of CoD, Halo, SSF4, and SSBB, but we only have 2 or 3 people putting them together, and we have to balance awesome with what will actually draw people. So, we're asking for input.

What kinds of tournaments would people like to participate in?

We will be having a Marvel vs. Capcom 3 tournament after it comes out, but we don't know when or where yet.

Once we get some ideas, we might make a poll (on here and/or on our website) to see what the most people would be interested in.

We had a handful of Left 4 Dead 2 people show for TnT and it's not super mainstream. Also Gears, but it's always a toughy
GT: Eighty8keyes Haloez and anything else I might be playing.

Maybe you could do a SC4 tournament? I don't know about who all plays in Tulsa (i think i heard it was dying), but i saw a lot of people mess with the game at TnT. I played quite a bit too.

I would be down to go to that.

What kind of games honestly see tournament play around Oklahoma? From what i see, you've listed all the games that bring the crowds. Its tricky to think of more.

Maybe SFIII: Third Strike. I know a couple of people in Tulsa who played that seriously, and i love that game.

SC4, BB, and T6 - sadly - all seem to have just about the same level of interest in OK.

I'll also point out - the Gaming Gathering we'll be holding beginning of October area - will be a great opportunity to see if there's any games we are missing / should be supporting!

SSBB and SSBM. I'm sure there are still Melee players out there, and SSBB gets good turnouts.

I work at GXC, I just wanted to post with this profile so I could be clear when I'm not officially speaking for the store.

It's been my impression that SC4 has been on the decline, and I don't know much about Tekken's following. I would love to do a BlazBlue tournament, but we're kind of worried about the turnout...at least for our early tournaments. While we're getting our tournaments up and running we need to focus on games with more appeal to the general public. Once they're a bit more established, we'll try and and run some more fun ones.

I made this post to see if I was missing any mass appeal games (like Gears...thanks for that), and also to get some ideas for later tournaments. So, we might try for some BlazBlue, older Street Fighters, maybe some racing, or who knows what else, but those may take a while for us to get to.

I'm going to see if we can do a Gears 2 one in Feb or March, before Gears 3 hits in April.

Oh, and is there any demand for Battlefield: BC2? I know it's got a huge online following, and I think it's better than CoD, but I don't know if there's any tournament following or what the tournament rules for it might be.

SC4 was on the decline until SC5 was announced as a possibility and all of a sudden BOOM people are playing again, awesome. Tekken is one of, if not THE biggest fighting game IN THE WORLD lol so that's always a must.  While Blazblue seems to be exceedingly popular here in OK from what I hear from people
