Legend of Chun Li event+ Announcement Next Tourney announcement!
I wonder who she's kicking? Bisooooon?!
Mark getting real close to Chun...
The 'challenge' was underway...
And the winner of a brand-new PS3!
So the event did go ahead, and it was open to all walk-in contestants. Basically, we were allowed to choose any character versus a representative they had from E2Max who played as Chun Li. We weren't allowed to use our joysticks. =(
All winners got an invite for 2 to attend the Legend Of Chun Li gala premier this Wednesday! Lots of our sf4singapore guys managed to get their hands on the invites, so that event should be fun.
What happened after we won the E2max rep? It was extremely gut-wrenching to find out that 4 people out of the winning pool were to be chosen RANDOMLY by the 98.7 DJ's to face off against each other for the PS3! Arrgg...we were all really kan-chiong. And in the end, none of us were chosen. =(....>+(...XD...>_<
I'm pretty sure that if ANY of the SF4Singapore guys were chosen we would have won the big fish. But well, it turned out that 3 brothers, Mark's cousins, out of the 4 were chosen haha. So chances were good that the PS3 was going to their house, and indeed, it did! So congrats to Mark's cousins (I forgot your names, sorry!) for a brand-spankin new PS3. I really hate you guys now! Haha, just kidding. =D
Anyhow, it was all good and fun. I did pick up a few pointers on how to a big-scale SF4 event should (and should not) be run, and I'm really looking forward to the gala premier of the movie! We gonna be sooo gangsta on the day, we have a group of 10 at least.
Hmm, and this has all gotten me psyched up on how big SF4 can be with corporate sponsors. I hear that WCG might include SF4 in it's line up, so that will definitely be amazing. Please follow this link to go vote for SF4 @ WCG! In the meantime, lets keep building the community and welcoming new players so more big events like this will become a reality.
Speaking of events, our next tournament this Friday will revert back to the 2v2 format that was so loved by all who participated. Location will also return to Bugis Junction Virtualand. I really enjoyed myself organizing the tournament at Ang Mo Kio and it was really good to see many new players, so I'll be looking to still have another 1v1 there and @ other Virtualand locations in the future.
The full details for this Friday's (13th...again!) tournament will be the same, so check here. As always, if you cannot find a partner, feel free to post a request up in the comments section and I'll do my best to pair you up with someone.
