My first thought is how grateful I am that we got 16 people! Honestly I didn’t expect a very good turnout but it ended up being our best one yet! lots of new faces & a few familiar ones that I don’t see in Tekken often. A big Thank You to everyone that entered, especially if you thought you were going to get blown up but entered anyway. You have no idea how much that helps and how much it warms my heart to see it after putting so much work into getting people into Tekken.

There were definitely some hype moments. Contra vs the NB players, The rise of WillEWGF and his grudge match vs. old friend Killarcanz, The first in-person appearance by online regulars from Saint John WyldMoon and MoncolleKnight, NFLD champ Joey Duke showing up and doing respectably. Also, shoutouts to the awesome commentary skills of Legalic & Wingman.

My only regret is the lack of casuals we were able to find outside of the tournament. Understandably, we had 2 games running simultaneously before the tournament & a massive AE bracket after the tournament in a smallish venue so those take priority but it’s just a shame because that’s really the lifeblood of the smaller scenes. Being able to grab players that you don’t see often and sit down for some in-person gaming that they might not do on their own as much. Very thankful that I was able to sit down with the Duke and have a law-off.

On the flip side of that: Tekken + Blazblue + Jello shots + American Ninja Warrior was super fun.

I had a blast as always. Hope to see everyone at HTT in May!

Super Street Figher IV AE 2012

Shirts are going to be sold again – details on that very soon and a special announcement will be tied to that.

But for the “Main Event” we do every event, what would you guys like to see? With word that Newfoundland players may are coming, we are tempted to do a regional theme again. Let us know!

So Tekken Tag 2 makes a return! There are rumours of players from Newfoundland and maybe even Maine in attendance so it should be a good one!
