You have until Thursday, March 3rd to sign up. All I need is your PSN ID, let me know where you're from too, Canadia and US is cool but might be some connection issues with Asia, South America etc. Doesn't mean you can't enter, just want to play a few games with you first, make sure the connection holds up. While the tournament runs until March the 11th, you will be expected to complete your first match by Monday, March 7th. Failure to comply will result in the disqualification of both players. Do not leave it until the last minute, you may be available to play on Monday but your partner may not. If you can't make it don't sign up, no shows will be banned from all future tournaments (Unless you let me know 24 hours prior to the event.) I'll post the brackets below this post early Friday morning, I suggest you get in touch with your opponent asap. Good luck, have fun, and try not to get too salty.

No Sentinel? Ah man, now I can't spam moves like a jerk! 
 
Kidding! I'm not good enough for anything like that anyway. Nor am I available. 

#5 Posted by GlenTennis (3145 posts) -

Lol @ no sentinel.

#6 Posted by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@Axxol: I stole it, just did a little editing.
 
@MooseyMcMan: That's a bummer. 
 
@Everyone else: Don't be discouraged by your skill level, played most of the community and everyone is pretty ass, I'm sure they'll be someone worse than you in the tournament.

No Sentinel? Blah. . . That's pussy shit: unnecessary reactionary banning.

#8 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

No Sentinel!? thats Crazy Pessh!

#9 Posted by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: That's me banning based on my personal experiences and because I can, I don't have too hard of a time with him thanks to my character choice but he is a cut above the rest of the cast, no Sentinel means a more even playing ground, I don't want people having to pick Sentinel because the other dude has. But hey, if you don't like it, blow me.
 
@Mechwing: Haha, sorry. Might have to make an exception just for you =P You not playing?
#10 Edited by Mechwing (265 posts) -

i'm playing SIGN ME UP. its just Sentinel IS part of my team. so thats sorta a Fuck you to the ppl who have practised him atleast didn't put alot of effort into anybody else. XD

PS3... aaaaawwwww

#12 Posted by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@Mechwing: Good good. There's always Taskmaster lol
 
@DarkShaper: Yeah, only platform I play on, heard epicsteve might be doing some stuff for 360 though so keep an eye out.

While I don't agree with the banning of Sentinel, I understand why it was done. The community needs to learn how to not be dependent on Sentinel, it breeds bad habits.

#16 Edited by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@Skogen: Yeah, but by the same merit the community needs to learn to overcome him. Took the decision because this is the first tournament, want it to be fun, not a sentinel shitstorm.
 
@Jack268: Nice one dude
#17 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

Can I use Hazik?

#18 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

i dunno. Sentinel on Sentinel Action is pretty bat shit crazy, espcially when they both x-factor. XD

#19 Posted by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@dbz1995: Yes but no mandem-factor.

You don't need to pick Sentinel because another dude has. There are a lot of quick characters and good assists that allow you to deal with Sentinel. He's like the Sagat of SF4. He's good but not that good. In other words, your ban is unnecessary and in the end, bad for the least experienced players most of all.

That's alright, I'd only use him for his assist to which he changes the game to MW2
#22 Posted by Rhaknar (5939 posts) -

no sentinel? lol? I dont even use him as you know, but thats retarded. Hes in the game, hes in the game, deal with it

#23 Posted by Pessh (2460 posts) -

 @McGhee_the_Insomniac: Did the fighting game gods tell you that or is that your opinion? I'm assuming it's the later, in which case I couldn't care less, especially as you're not even entering. I play Viper and Ammy, I know Sentinel can be dealt with but I'm not everybody. I think no Sentinel means more fun for everyone, scrubs don't get stomped, people don't forego their usual characters for S tier just to win, Sent players learn someone new. If you don't like that go host your own tournament. Now I'd appreciate it if you stopped cluttering the thread with irrelevant bs. Thanks dude.

#24 Posted by JJOR64 (19051 posts) -

Lmfao at no Sentinel.  Sure Sentinel is good, but he is easy to beat.  Well, good luck with the tourney.

Talking about the format of a tournament in a thread about the tournament is irrelevant? Whatever you say "dude". But as you say, it's your tournament, and I definitely have no interest in entering.
#26 Edited by Pessh (2460 posts) -
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: @Rhaknar: @JJOR64: Wow, people really will complain about anything these days. Sentinel is free for me, I play Ammy, Viper and Dante, but I'm not everyone. I thought no Sentinel would mean more fun for everybody, and my tournaments have been fairly successful in the past, I think I know what will work. If enough people who are actually entering ask nicely I'll overturn it as I've done in the past.
 
@McGhee_the_Insomniac: Not if you're not entering, you're just bitching for the sake of it. 
 
@JJOR64: Thanks.

Alright I'm in, but I'll need a new frontman if Sent is banned. Maybe I'll try to see if I can learn Dormommy.

I would sign up, but I work on Fridays.

#30 Posted by ZombiePie (5731 posts) -

Alright that's enough. It's his tournament and his rules. Either sign up for the tournament or don't comment. There's no need to vent your Sentinel hate on this thread as it is helping no one.

@Pessh: I'm ok with the ban. Not that he's overpowered, but because GetEveryone and his grandma has him on their team and it would be nice to see some different faces. 
 
Like 20 Dantes.
#34 Posted by Doctorchimp (4078 posts) -

Haha, wow is this what the Giantbomb MvC3 tournaments are gonna look like? We're just gonna ban Sentinel and once someone has a good game with Dark Phoenix she's banned too?
 
I really hope not.

You chose poster 2, so sign me up :) 
 
This'll likely be my last foray into MvC3, I think...

WORDPLAY! 
 
I like it.
#36 Posted by StarvingGamer (8476 posts) -
@Pessh: Only on a conceptual level, but honestly I don't use him so I don't care. I mean it does suck if anyone has actually really been working on learning how to play Sent only to be arsed out of their main but I'll slice 'em up and pipe 'em up regardless.
 
If you ban Phoenix I'll be a little sad.
#37 Posted by Mrsignerman44 (1100 posts) -

LOL no sentinel. Y'all are some pussies. I don't even use him but I know that he's beatable. 
 
Learn to snapback and superjump over shit.

Akuma was 'beatable' in Super Street Fighter II Turbo-didn't stop him being banned. And saying what to do is much easier than doing it.

@Mechwing: Like I said If a few people actually playing want him i'll change it.

@VicRattlehead:

Yeah, that's just the internet I suppose. You busy or just not enjoying it like everyone else? And yeah, posters dope, wish I made it lol.

I'll finish the tourny for cool dudes like this
