T20 2015 Tournament
on 2/20/2015 6:02:36 PM
Hey GGA guys, you gotta promote this thing somewhere other than facebook :). Start spamming the arcade forums! 

T20 Tournament, May 28th through June 1st.

"Join us for a major arcade high score tournament at the Galloping Ghost Arcade! The main tournament will consist of 20 games that will be announced at the start of the tournament! Full stream coverage. Cash & prizes to the winners! This will be the first of an annual event. With Funspot unable to run their tournament this year, we hope that we can accommodate the high score community. In the future, the tournament date will be later in the the year as to not conflict with Funspots' established event. Do not miss this high scoring event!"

Hmm, interesting....

That tournament falls on the same date as John Jacobsen's Arcade Outsiders tournament.

Doc purposely put the tournament the same weekend as Funspot would have been, in order to give people an option in lieu of the ACAM tourney being gone.

I understand ACAM's tourney isn't happening, however there is a tournament in the works at Funspot at that same time.  I am even toying with the idea of a mini "Battle of the Arcades", but no guarantees.

Clint, we had no idea there was even a possibility of an event happening. The same week that FunSpot publicly announced their tournament cancellation, GGA announced this event. It wasn't intended to be a conflict.

I wouldn't say it's a conflict.

I just think someone local to that part of the country had the exact same idea you did and implemented it at the exact same time. :)

That's a good way of putting it.

The sad thing is that we canceled our reservation out east after the initial announcement, because we needed to do so ASAP to get our deposit back. I wish we had known something was in the works, because it's likely we would have kept our plans.

For those going to Funspot I worry about the state of the machines that may be used for tourney stuff. Gary and the rest put a lot of work prior to tournament time to get as many as possible running, that may not be the case this time.

The "official" Funspot tournament may have been cancelled but there is still going to be an AURCADE tournament that same weekend and at Funspot. It's going to be a John's Arcade Impossible Outsiders tournament. This was announced pretty soon after Funspot cancelled the tournament. Not new news. 

We have people flying in from all over the country for the event. It's going to ROCK!!

Aurcade referee Clint (Nashvillan) will be there.

Games to be announced. Prizes to be announced. 

Dates are May 29 and 30.

We will have no problem with the games for the event. 

Some details are here:

I am aware of this topic. I have had tournaments there before and everything went smooth.

I will do my best to make smart choices for the games.

I announced the Funspot tournament back in January. Well before the Galloping Ghost tournament was announced.

If you check the GGA Facebook page, they announced the T20 on Jan 30th.

I heard about it Magfest weekend around 24-26th Jan. Doesn't matter though, there's room for 2 events. Not like they are close to each other.

I can attest to the fact that the T20 tourney was announced AFTER Fun Spot officially announced that their tournament was cancelled on their web site. We all saw it... the Fun Spot tournament was CANCELLED and Doc Mack filled the void. It is great to see that John stepped in to keep the Fun Spot tourney running, but that was after the GGA announcement of the T20 tournament.

How recently have you been up there John? I'm not kidding when I say 50% of the games in November had an issue that affected gameplay. It's gotten much worse than usual.

Question for GGA people. The tournament is listed as running until monday June 1st. Does that just imply a late sunday night or actual monday afternoon stuff? Seems odd as most people would be returning to work monday. FS tournaments always had many people leaving even before the end of sunday to return home in time.

You guys just have to trust me on this. The game topic has been taken care of. The games will not be an issue for the tournament.

This is stupid to debate, but I announced the tournament on the 23rd and before GGA. I was told immediately when they announced it cause people were like WTF?
