Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today…

To New York Comic Con that is! That’s right folks, Harry and yours truly are going to be in New York City this weekend, painting the town some crazy shade of red. If you haven’t had a chance to play the high-res, hand-drawn awesomeness that is BlazBlue, we got you covered! We’ll be running it all weekend, not to mention holding the first official BlazBlue Tournament of 2009, where you’ll have a chance to win some cool prizes. You can also be one of the first people to play Bit.Trip Beat and the first English version of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus. So, if you’re in the neighborhood come by and say hi, we might just give you some free stuff. See you there!

    is it a 3 day BlazBlue Tournament or is it a Tournament each day because I think I might not be able to be on Friday or Saturday or i might not go at all because I don’t have money and don’t know how much money it is to get in Comic Con. But I do really want to play all three games and try out Bit-Trip because I never played it before but I did play BalzBlue and Guilty Gear XX A Core but not plus. So I might go and ask some questions about the game

    Guys, I think you should consider holding the tournament on Sunday, since that’s what you posted on SRK well before you posted this. Lots of people are going to be screwed out of their tickets because they paid for Sunday instead of Saturday tickets.

    Don’t really care about this “tournament” anymore; just posting to say you should be more careful when planning events in the future. Aksys popped up on SRK a week ago and suddenly announced the tournament, then disappeared without posting up any other information. Even though it was sudden, people were kind of hype and many made plans (myself included) to head to NYC for the event. Soon after, the players figured out on their own that this tournament was going to be held at ComicCon, and would cost $30 (lol) to enter; but still some of us were determined to go. More questions went unanswered on the forums, and just now, 3 days before the tourney, we find out that the date is actually SATURDAY instead of Sunday…seriously? This event went from Hype to Fail in less than a week, but all of this could have been avoided by just communicating with the players; we are the ones who make tournies successful, after all.

    If any of you scrubs want to see real tourney level BB, I’ll be at CF over the weekend!

    solshido:
    what you don’t understand is that the actual people who play the game over at SRK and dustloop forums were told that the tournament was sunday nearly a week ago. Since most people can afford Sunday passes, that’s the day they paid for, so a weekend pass wasn’t necessary. However, now that they moved the tournament, these players are screwed over since they had plans for Saturday. Also, keep in mind that you can’t upgrade to a weekend pass for $20; you’d have to buy a brand new weekend pass for $50, period. What a shame, too.

    Basically, what jiyuna said.

    I paid 30 dollars for FEB 8TH because you posted in THREE DIFFERENT PLACES on fighting game forums (Dustloop, and twice on SRK), naturally, since I don’t know shit about anime cons, I bought a ticket for sunday on the internet, specifically to go to this tournament, because, hey, decent shot at free shit, wanted to have fun, cons really don’t interest me, fighting game tournaments do. Any BlazBlue tournament is a good way to get in practice.

    So now I find out, shortly after I purchased my ticket (Order Date: 02-feb-2009 20:40:31, from the email I received), that you’re holding it on a completely different date, so now I’m out 30 dollars because some PR dude can’t even bother to make sure he doesn’t piss off the community (IE what should be in his job description). If you had simply posted the 7th in one of many places where half the people expecting to show up would read, it would have been a lot easier to at least find the mistake, but this dude copy pasted in 3 different times and each time he made the mistake, leaving no doubt in my mind it was sunday.

    To top this off, you managed to put this tournament on the same day as an east coast major fighting game tournament which naturally, I wanted to go to because I play other games other than BlazBlue, I chose going to your tournament because of lack of communication elsewhere, which isn’t leaving me too satisfied right now.

    Now, I’m not expecting you guys to like, come out and just shove 30 dollars in my face, but could you at least somehow work shit out with the con to get me a refund, or offer me 30 dollars worth of shit for your own mistake, or say “Sorry” and owe me a favor?

    Shit happens, mistakes are made, and at the end of the day, everyone gets along, but could you give me a single compelling reason to support your company now? Like damn.

    Aight Kensk, come by the booth and I’ll hook you up a little. My bad on the post however, if there’s enough peeps that did buy the Sunday pass, I have no problem doing a switch and putting the BB tourney on Sunday. However, I maybe incline to do a Sat and Sun tourney if the demand is there. Hit me up either way on SRK Kensk

    Okay, thanks a bunch man. I really appreciate the fact that you’re fixing as little as a 30 dollar mistake.
