NEC XII Trailer


STREAM

As with all Big E tournaments, there will be multiple streams for the event, but less than usual:

Team Sp00ky will be the main stream, the place to go for AE, UMvC3, and (some) finals:

http://www.twitch.tv/teamsp00ky

8WayRun will be handling KOF XIII, Tekken and SoulCalibur, including TTT2 and SCV:

http://www.twitch.tv/8wayrun

According to Sp00ky, these will be the only streams at the venue. Some of the other events should be recorded however.

For those looking for a ways to watch multiple streams at the same time, there are few options:

http://teevox.com/#/fighting/teamsp0...ghting/8wayrun

That should give you a straight link to the Sp00ky stream plus 8WayRun in PIP.

My preferred site:

http://www18.atpages.jp/vf12360/chec...un/jc::8wayrun

Both streams plus chat, all with resizeable windows.


INFO

From the NEC site:

The Northeast Championships is a series of fighting game tournaments held on the first weekend in December in Philadelphia, PA. NEC is always held on the first weekend of December at the Sheraton Suites Philadelphia Airport Hotel. More information about the location is available on the location page. The Northeast Championship has grown so much over the years and attendence has increased to well over 700 participants. All participants come from all over the North American region and even played host to many players from Europe.

This event, now in its twelth year, runs a variety of tournaments for fighting games. These games run from the latest and greatest games (Super Street Fighter 4 AE, Marvel vs Capcom 3) to popular cult favorites(Blaz Blue: Continuum Shift and Melty Blood: Actress Again) to fighting games that have been competitively played for nearly a decade or more (Street Fighter 3: Third Strike, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo). Furthermore, players even run their own side tournaments and end up running a myriad of events, no matter how obscure or bad the game is. Garou: Mark of the Wolves, Super Puzzle Fighter, TMNT Tournament Fighter, and Shaq Fu are just a few examples of games run on the side.

One of the best things about NEC(and including Winter Brawl and Summer Jam) is the multiple stream setups. Multiple streams are set up so the player has a choice in watching what they desire be it 3D fighters, 2D fighters, or even side events. For the main room streaming services, which include SSF4AE and MvC3, are handled by Team Sp00ky. The 3D fighters stream which include Soul Calibur 4, Tekken 6, Virtua Fighter 5 and Dead or Alive is handled by Jaxel of 8WayRun.com.

Aksys Games
Atlus
Classic Game Junkie

There is a tourney for AE and MvC3 today (probably running right now), but I don't think it will be streamed. The main event is all Saturday and Sunday.

I don't really know all the specifics, but I'd guess it probably will be streamed, in some form.

There are a few sites that do this, the most popular one was originally made for Starcraft games, but I forget it's name.

There's a good chance that St1ckBuG will stream it, but honestly, with the billions of games at the event, it's really hard to say of what minor tournaments will have coverage.

There is going to be a stupid amount of HYPE and new TECH in this.

Oh and Weskers everywhere etc. although Wesker hype bores me. Too many scary characters to watch out for in this game and at any time anyone can get blown up in this game.

Let's see if DJHousen can bring the hype once again.

No Flocker or FlashMetroid? Sad. :(

Is it me, or is Wesker getting more hate than Phoenix right now?

And now that I think about it, I haven't see any Phoenix player for a while now... what's going on, were her nerfs that bad?

I think it mostly stems from the glasses buff on an already great character. He is bullshit. But not nearly as bad as DP imo.

Actually, I still hate Phoenix, luckily many people have abandoned her.

Glasses buff was bull shit of course. Wesker is just hella popular and kills team variety so he gets hate. There are better characters than him but no one has it as easy as Wesker in this game.

Phoenix is too hard to turn Dark and the fear factor of her in a team is gone. A lot of characters straight up hard counter her now especially like half of the new cast.

That should give you a straight link to the Sp00ky stream plus 8WayRun in PIP.

My preferred site:

Both streams plus chat, all with resizeable windows.
