The Mortal Kombat stream is going to be twitch.tv/atlmk. If you follow bambamguitar on twitter(Pig of the Hut) he'll be tweeting updates and when they go live. Pools and top 8 will be streamed on Sunday and Saturday will be an all day stream of exhibitions and money matches. This is going to be the biggest Mortal Kombat tournament since Evo 2011. Over 100 entrants pre-reg and almost every top player is coming.

Final Round is run by ShinBlanka. Jebailey runs CEO (Community Effort Orlando). Not mentioning Larry in the OP is a pretty big omission, I'll update.

I don't want to see any drama on the stream. I want the stream to be just about the games and the players and that's it. The whole gaming community is probably going to watch and somebody slips up expect more articles next week.

Really wish the thread title had no reference to Cross Assault. What a shitty thing to be associated with. I feel sorry for Larry, hopefully this weekend is remembered for Final Round. And, not an abortion of a show.

FINAL ROUND...WHAT!!!

FINAL ROUND...WHAT!!!

FINAL ROUND...WHAT!!!

Edit: Haunts and Spooky you two are gods though. Keep on keeping on. However, real talk the show was fucked in many ways. An experiment that has hurt the FGC much more then help it. (Really Capcom done fucked up)

Also note that the SSFIV AE 2012 CAPCOM Official National Tournament in Japan will be running March 2/3, Day 1 of FR, though on a much different time schedule. There's also the big 5on5 the day before, as in tonight. Made a thread for that as well. Actually probably spent more time on that thread than this one, haha.

If there's a GAF meet-up going down, PM me your number and keep me in the loop. I'd like to get some Marvel sessions in if nothing else.

USD: Kurosu (sp?) is also attending. He won the JP qualifier for UMvC3, supposedly has secret Rocket Raccon tech on deck, and if I'm not mistaken was the guy who discovered the DHC glitch.
