I will be organizing the TT play, and so far we've got warhammer Fantasy tourney, WH40K tourney, WM/Hordes tourney.  Hopefully some good demoing of a few games "Heavy Gear Blitz; Monster apocalypse; Specialist games).  also I'm looking for players for the Pokemon, Yugioh, Magic the Gathering Tourneys.  Post on the TinTulsa forums and let me know.


thanks guys.

I don't like decisions :P

I'm really wanting to get a PC Lan going, but I'm sure i'll be checking out both of these events.

I so can't wait for this! Me and my friend are praying that there will be Gears of War as a game option. That's the one game that I can spend hours on! Can't wait to go! Oh and cheers for the anime too! ^_^

Info updated - 30 to 35 for ALL EVENT.

GoW - we'll have space for it.  Most FPS's have a "we'll provide space for it, throw a tournament if there's a need, but won't promise due to previous low turn outs" status.  I'll verify this Tuesday.

Tournament list updated!  Keep in mind, with the BYOC setup, there is also 'no excuse' for us not having your favorite game!  If you have the interest, we've got dedicated space for you!

Also, let me say something on FPS's.  You've fallen into the BYOC arena because we've tried our best at local events to HAVE FPS games be in our official tournament schedule - only to fall through.  We'll keep the space open, and be ready to run FPS tournaments - but we won't promise an event only to have the gamers be dissapointed.  You want GoW / COD / Halo to happen?  So do we - bring in the hardware, and we'll hook you up with competition!

(Keep in mind - OKgamers is a site to network gamers and let us know when things happen.  We have a volunteer staff that help at events like this? To help get the word out about the site.  We only own what we personally have, thus the 'byo' mentality.)


DID YOU VISIT AKON?  Let me just go on record as saying we have almost three times the space they had to work with.  We should easily be able to avoid the restrictions they had this time around.  I know next year will be even better, but don't worry about TnT - we've got the space!@#

(note - console and tabletop gaming are even in seperate area's...  We really do have alot of space.)

TOURNAMENT SOFTWARE?  We are firm believers in TIO - and use it.

RULES - will be the standards from the various respected communities.  OKgamers believes in running with what the gamers stand by, so feel free to link us to what you know of for your game, and we'll go with that.  Smash we should have from the TnT sponsored event, Halo from MLG, etc.

we can but no one ever shows....and the ones that post on this forum dont show either....dont listen to them if they say theyre going. ive been to about 4 tourneys in tulsa....none of which hade more then 2 teams in gears. and even if 5+ teams showed up ; it would be too easy for us anyways, i like having competition.

Just for the record, I have Arana Heart and can bring it if anyone really wants it there.  Also for the record, pretty good 3d fighter so it's not really a let down.
