Don't you mean Bi(son)monthly tournaments? ... I'll show myself out.

Seriously, mind you; damn good work on this. I have taught you well. Been looking for an excuse to get back into SF, and this just might prove to be it. Count me in.

Only recommendation I got, as far as the format/rules go, is to per-maybe-haps clarify the lobby set-up system. Especially over longer distances; hosting might give you an advantage lag-wise. So what determines who gets to set this up if it is an issue? I could see some EU players wanting to participate being a little worried over this. And maybe a "button check" round before an actual match to see what the lag is like (if there is any) might be a good idea. Other than that, though; this all looks faaaantastic.

Also, I feel obligated to ask; any chance of starting this just one hour earlier so I can join without hating myself the morning after?

I've been waiting for this. Time to put my scrubby Urien or Alex to the test.

@fredchuckdave: I didn't build the house, Birdie did. But he lets me live there for cheap, so long as I don't touch his side of the fridge.

I might not be able to make it. I've been having internet problems that should've been fixed by today but the repairman fucked up somehow and now i'm not sure when it'll be done. I'll just go ahead and remove myself from the tournament for now.

God damn it! I was entirely convinced that this was happening today, and not, in fact, yesterday. Didn't notice until it was far too late. Well, dang it; I'll be sure to be there next time! Will give me more time to get back up to my earlier skill level as well! Hot going, though, @l1ghtn1n! You've been practicing!

@do_the_manta_ray: I also made the same oversight. I really should have put a calendar event for this.

@rickyyo: Well, I sure as heck ain't missing the next one! Been on a SFV hiatus since just before Juri launched, and I find myself really itching to get back into it. Let me know if you want to train up a wee bit before the next tournament! (Offer is available to all here, ofcourse), and hey, I expect to see you there!

@l1ghtn1n: Is there any chance we can run a smaller thing this coming weekend for folks who are interested? I realize that you're likely busy, but I know a couple of folks who wouldn't mind serving as admin for one evening. Honestly, these things are a lot of fun; and I'd like to do more of 'em if folks are willing.

Sounds like fun. Been playing the game since February yet haven't played in many tournaments so I'm sure it'll be a good time.

I haven't played any SFV since right around the time Guile came out but I think I'll join in next weekend. If anyone wants to practice their combos on me in the meantime, HMU.

And the tournament ends with a battle of the big bodies! Danggief's dang Zangief beat up on my (Jessna) poor Birdie in grand finals for the win! And Saft maintains a firm grip on his 3rd place position. An absolutely great turn out and great tourney! Hope to see you all again for the next one!

I haven't played at all this week, so this is going to go swimmingly! Time to tear myself away from FFXV and hop on that last-minute grind train.

@l1ghtn1n: Have you got any plans for the future of this here community tournament scene? Personally, I think it is a genuine joy each and every time, and it does motivate people to keep playing the game, and keep talking about the game, so I'd love if we could keep this train rolling. It'll be especially fun just post patch, when folks are still figuring out new tech, and everyone and their brothers dogs little sister are playing Akuma. What are your thoughts?

Reminder, folks; last planned tournament is tomorrow afternoon/evening depending on where you live.
