S-C: I am with the tournament organizer NeoRussell a.k.a. Russell. Thank you very much for being with us today.
NR: Thanks Ra’id, thank you.
S-C: How do you feel that T12 is going so far comparing it to the previous T tournaments? This one seems to be a little bit on a higher level.
NR: The first T tournament that I touched was T10, and that was with DarkDragon and JS Master. I’m not gonna lie, there were a few issues at T10. It was a learning experience basically. We did not expect to have 32 teams for SF4 vanilla so that lasted for 2 days and it screwed us over. T11 was actually run really well because we had great staff. If you have great staff, you’ll have the best tournament experience.
S-C: Would you say you have that same level of staff for this tournament?
NR: Of course. We have a lot of good staff. For one, Vince, once he started the bracket for AE and Marvel, I didn’t even want to touch those brackets anymore because he has his own quirks so I left it in his hands. Other than that, we have the volunteer system and we passed out T-Shirts to those people who volunteered and waived the venue fee as well so that’s a good trade-off for them. It’s more organized because we were expecting 300 people.
S-C: We are here with one of T12′s main sponsors, Hideyuki of Omega Collectables. Hidey thank you very much for being with us. What are your impressions about the event thus far from a sponsors perspective?
Omega: This is an awesome event! As you know, Omega Collectables has been a long-time supporter of the Fighting Game Community sponsoring events in Waterloo, London, Hamilton, Toronto, Ottawa, Newmarket, and more. We sponsored MATVIII in Montreal earlier in the year which was our first major. Dare I say that T12 is even bigger and badder? It’s amazing to see all these people come together in one room, aligned by their shared passion and interests. Words don’t do it justice. Read the rest of this entry »
S-C: I am here with NYC Fab, thank you very much for being with us today. How are you liking your stay in Toronto so far? Is this your first time here?
NYC: Yea it’s my first time here. I always wanted to come but my job schedule sucks so I was lucky just to be able to come here for 2 days. But I’m definitely enjoying myself, I had poutine finally, it was pretty good.
S-C: Awesome. That’s usually number one priority on people’s lists. And how are you enjoying the tournament so far?
NYC: It was a good tournament. I like how it was run. It was run pretty clean. People out here are really nice and cool out here so I really enjoyed it. Read the rest of this entry »
T12 is Toronto’s 12th annual Canadian fighting game national competition that took place on the Saturday and Sunday, September 24th and 25th, 2011. The T-Series is one of Canada’s longest running series for fighting game tournaments that always attract the finest players from across North America and this year was no exception. Thanks to an incredible effort and contributions put forth by Toronto Top Tiers, the event sponsors, and several well-respected members of our community, this tournament was probably the largest Canadian tournament to date. Read on more to see how it went down. Read the rest of this entry »
This year’s T-Series fighting game tournament will be the biggest one yet, featuring several notable players travelling into Canada to take the title. Many pot prizes are being offered as well as a free trip to Canada Cup to the winner of the SSF4:AE tournament. Check out the trailer above.
Another year, another Evo. As long as fighting games are being played, you know Evo is being held. This year was the largest Evo to date. Not only was there a fighting game tournament, but there were several games up for beta testing and many, many panels for the the fans to enjoy. It was like a mini convention.
This was the biggest venue I have seen the show take place in to date. There was one giant hall for the tournament, and several little rooms for the panels. There was something to do no matter what time of day it was. The only problem was how far the event room was from the hotel rooms. I heard a ton of people complaining about the walk, which imo wasn’t very far at all.
The show was being streamed practically the entire 72 hours, From 8am-near mid-night every night on the two main streams, followed by an after hours stream provided by iPlayWinner, which ran for most of the off hours. Three streams may sound like a lot, but it still wasn’t enough to capture the entire event. Read the rest of this entry »
This was an amazing tournament where everything seemed to go better than one could have planned. Great stream, matches, and side events (from what I’ve been told by attendees). Many games were held, but not all results are up yet. Special thanks to Keits, the entire UFGT7 staff and Level-Up series for putting on a great show.
