Will there be SC2 at the TCC event or TiT? I'll read more posts later, meh.

Welcome to the site.  We are in talks with the same guys that did the Starcraft Tulsa Barcraft to see about having them out at TCC - if nothing else the 1/21 event.  Not sure - if you know a lot of SC2 players let them know we are trying to get this going for them; but need to see their support / attendance at an event before we'll support them at TnT, and other events where it'd be a 'main liner game' people would travel for, etc.

That goes for LoL too - and LoL players already have the challenge - show up to 1/21, and prove you exist :)  SC2 - still working on finding a community leader / community to work with...


You know a good game that never really got any rep was War for Cybertron. Really fast paced, chaotic shooter. Plus I mean, robot death match, come on!

In a way - these two questions are very alike.

Anyway, there are SO many good shooters - but if there is no local community to back, then OKgamers can't support them.  1/21 is a "open gameroom" for us - we can offer space to a lot of new or "in question games" like LoL, and if they show up?  We'll support them at future events...  Otherwise, there isn't much reason to plan an event for a game no one shows up for :)  (And frankly?  Is a risk - people show up for a Hello Kitty Island Adventure event - and no one else does?  They are let down, and may never return to the site / trust it / etc...  So - for Promotional Events - OKgamers staff do not work with anything we haven't already vetted through an event like 1/21.)

Not gonna lie this is mainly for me, but this exists and i'd like to see this happen.
It's asking TOs that are willing to step up and host regionals for Blazblue in rising for the Blazblue Revolution.

Do you currently attend the Wednesday fight nights?  If so, talk to Toucan, we can use some KOF hardware support.

Nobody cared about the racing tournament last year? Oh, so I don't matter. I see, I see. So I was the only entrant...at least I won. And that's not "nobody". Ok, I'll shut up now. :(

It's sad - I hear about gamers loving racing games - but no interest when we've tried.  Kinda the same with all sports games other than Madden...  Dunno; if a community springs up, we'll support it though!

Halo, provided Timmy's halo hardware sponsors hold out?  Will be there.  WARNING: I suggest you tell any of your Halo friends to bring hardware, because if we don't have enough to play, we won't.  We haven't "relied on Halo players to bring all the hardware" in a long, long time - be aware we add Halo as a potluck hardware situation - gamers show up with it, or it doesn't happen.


D3AD - I'm assuming you are requesting LoL.  There hasn't been an event for them to attend or online requests to put it over SC2...

...Starcraft 2 has a Community Lead, some hardware coming with him - and a base of players that have shown up to an event.  If TCC goes well, we'll be able to talk LoL; otherwise this is our FIRST PC event at a Promotional Event, and at an untested location for PC gaming for us, TCC. 

Everything goes well - we'll talk LoL at TnT.  But only if SC2 goes well, and we ever find a Community Lead that can guide us in those uncharted waters.

These event threads are up,  this thread is now going to be closed.

FINAL WORDS ON LoL:

Until 2/25 happens, and we see anyone will even show up for a PC tournament?
Until someone steps up and can actually fill the shoes of a Community Lead for long enough to answer some questions, and jump through such basic hoops?

Until at least these 2 things are met, OKgamers can not and will not include LoL as a suggested event to businesses, or game for any promotional events we organize.

Do not spam Tournament & Events forum threads without LoL - it won't get you LoL.
(Note, Koze405 - you haven't done this that I've seen; this response will be linked to future LoL players that might be doing this, etc.)


I appreciate your enthusiasm but from my side of things: until we can prove anyone will even show up to a PC event, and we have a leader who can help facilitate the needed "you help us help your community" that a CL does - there's no point in even trying, things don't work out otherwise.

As for LoL players, may I suggest you direct your energies towards useful goals elsewhere as well: http://www.okgamers.com/forums/index.php/topic,3931.0.html

With no internet needed, your opportunities for local events increase vastly.
