Well, I’m sick as a dog, but I managed to record the remainder of the MKII tournament tonight. It’s grouped as winners, losers, and finals, which contains winners finals, losers finals, and grand finals.

It seems like a couple sets are missing, if anyone who was there can tell me if I screwed up names or what matches are missing, it would be appreciated. I don’t have the patience right now, I don’t even have my glasses on lol.

Thanks again to all the players who showed. Next UMK3/MKII tournament is slated for February 27th, same location as NEC. So any players who said they would show and didn’t, you got enough time to get it in gear and show up, but it’s still close enough that it’s not a huge wait.

I hope everyone gets a good laugh at my MKII skills.

I also just uploaded the finals from the finish for ECT between me and Julian that we did during NEC. Not the greatest, more like BSing casuals done as a tournament. There is a partial infinite with Reptile, and also an uncommonly used Kabal juggle done to the frame so it’s entirely inescapable, several missed attempts at 4x axe with Nightwolf.

The UltimateMK UMK3 tournament took place December 6th, 2009 at NECX and the winner is Joe iloveu! Joe is a highly respected player for multiple fighters including SF3 Third Strike and SF4. He shows time and time again that he is dedicated to the scene, and we are happy he’s on our side.

East Coast Throwdown UMK3 Tournament was finished, Shock vs Julian with Shock coming out on top a couple matches over, also recorded.

19 UMK3 players participated in the tournament, with 25 in the house, supported by a massively successful turnout for NECX of over 650 players by Saturday night. Virtually the entire tournament was recorded, along with MKII. I will try my best to get some matches uploaded as soon as possible. To anyone who wanted to go but couldn’t, or said they would but didn’t, you guys missed out on a super fun, super great tournament. I hope to see all the players again soon.

There were 12 total players which was a pretty decent turnout, however several players did not show, which always disappoints me but I was very glad to see some new faces tonight.

There will be UMK3, MKII and MKvDC tournaments at NEC this year. The turnout last year for UMK3 was pretty good with 16 players for a virtually unadvertised tournament, and it’s already looking to be good again this year with approximately 30 players showing interest so far.

I will be there Saturday and Sunday. Sunday, December 6th is now the official day for the UMK3 tournament ($5 entry fee) held with the other major games. Casuals for UMK3 will be held all day on Saturday in the side game room, MKII will be held on Saturday regardless as of right now. Whatever the case may be, players should just show up. If everyone who says “I will come out if there are going to be players there” just showed up, there’d be players there.

Also, as an added bonus to UMK3 tournament, Arcade Ed from arcadeinabox is giving me at least a $50 and a $25 gift certificate for products on his site. We can determine how we’ll work that into prize money depending on the outcome.

Both UMK3 and MKII will be played on PCs and we’ll supply 4 (four) UMK3 format sticks to use for both games, so MKII’s will have a run button on them but that won’t make a difference. I do not intend on bringing any 360 pads with me, so if anyone wants to use pad they should bring their own. We’ll also have a couple SF stick layouts available if necessary. We will have 20″ and 24″ wide screen monitors for your viewing pleasure.

We’ve done a lot for the community over the years even before we made ultimatemk, and all we’ve ever asked if for players to get active and represent MK at tournaments, wherever they may be. We can’t be everywhere but we try to run as many tournaments as possible in our region. I’ve run tournaments in 4 states, in Philly this will be the 6th I’ve run, and 8th I’ve been a part of. There have been 3 UMK3 tournaments this year already with double digit player turnouts. They’d be a lot higher if everyone who says they would show, actually did. Tournaments are a great and fun experience, you meet a lot of people, and there are endless games to choose from. You don’t all play just MK.

Start up time either day will most likely begin around 4PM, and I would personally be willing to accept late entries until the first Round is complete, as I generally have leeway on tournament coordination. The later we start, the less likely the tournament will finish. No more 6PM or later starts.

Thank you players, hope to see you there.
