BRACKET:

http://challonge.com/gbvsgf

Ok, so I've talked to a guy over at gamefaqs, and they totally wanna challenge us! Here is how this works, we get 16 people on our side, we all kill eachother off 'til we get to the semi-finals, and the person that makes it to the top of the giantbomb list fights the person who makes it to the top of the gamefaqs list (so, in essence, really big 32 man tournament).

Rules:

Simple, best 2 out of 3, SINGLE elimination, 99 seconds a round. This is an Xbox 360 tournament, maybe I'll host a PS3 one later depending on how this goes.

Sign up here:

1. demontium (gt = demontium)

2. OwnlyUzinWonHan (gt = OwnlyUzinWonHan)

3. FluxWaveZ (gt = FluxWaveZ)

4. the_hiro_abides (gt = Insomnia Fuel)

5. BeserkGamer (gt = oyatomo230)

6. slightconfuse (gt = elricthewarrior)

7. axman36 (gt = axman36)

8. Cross_Marian (gt = Kyokushin Jutsu)

9. Troispoint (gt = Darth Revan 666)

10. SamDrugbringer (gt = Nephrahim)

11. GlennTennis (gt = HotCheeseBandit)

Once I get all 16, We'll PM everyone the brackets, and you will get designated times to fight. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

...This is going to be taken in an incredibly friendly and relaxed manner right?

I would say yes, but I know I'm terrible at MvC3. But if you need a person to fill the bracket, then sure.

#33 Posted by rbysjti (354 posts) -

i don't know which team i will support Giantbomb or Gamespot? Hope the tournament will be awesome. : )

#34 Posted by OwnlyUzinWonHan (1478 posts) -

Here's to hoping Gamefaqs doesn't know how to air-throw

#35 Posted by gosukiller (2324 posts) -

Hope you pull this off, but I can't remember a single Xbox tournament actually happening.  
 
Xbox people don't tend to show up.

@OwnlyUzinWonHan: @FluxWaveZ: @slightconfuse: @BeserkGamer: @the_hiro_abides:@Troispoint: @SamDrugbringer: @GlenTennis:

this is gonna start monday and end wednesday. We'll lock it in monday, I can do an 11 mand bracket so no worries.

#37 Posted by GlenTennis (3144 posts) -

@demontium: I won't have access to the game until I go home (I'm house-sitting), which is like Wednesday at 6:00 PST. I wouldn't be able to play until then, but that would be coming in dry off of a few weeks with no practice. I would love to be able to do this Thurs. morning, but I can do it Wed night if completely necessary.

#38 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -
@demontium: Not sure what you mean by "lock it in", but I can't play Monday because of E3.
#39 Posted by demontium (4707 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: youll have 72 gours to do your match, i think it'll be good.
