Fall Brawl is over!

November 21st, 2009.  Just another typical Saturday here in this quiet midwestern town.  Unbeknownst to the townfolk here, a large gathering of hardcore gamers descended with only one thing on their mind: winning.  It's a small story that most won't know, but a few will remember for a lifetime.

Kansas City: eleven people, three cars.

Oklahoma: five people, two cars.

Omaha Nebraska and Manhattan: two people, one car.

Our town: fifteen people.  I didn't count the cars…

The numbers don't look all that dramatic, but you couldn't find a better place to play some of the midwest's top players in games like Street Fighter, BlazBlue, and Tekken.  Every match was close, but all of the victories well well-earned.  Tough.  Yet respected.  Oklahoma came out on top for the Tekken portion, while Kansas City proved once again why they were the champions in Street Fighter.  BlazBlue also had a fairly unknown player from Oklahoma dominate some of the toughest competition with a typically unheard of character.

I'd like to thank everybody who came down.  I gave my shout-outs already, but I suppose it couldn't hurt putting it here as well.  We had the most successful showing yet, with over $100 bucks in the pot for first place.  The team matches were a first for this tournament, and it looked to be very successful.  I've never seen so much hype in person before; even more than what I'm used to seeing during singles tournaments.

Videos will be put up in the future.  We're working on it.

I had a lot of fun.  I hope everyone did too.  We'll be back in March to settle the score again.  A new rivalry is brewing that hasn't been touched sinced 2005.  It's gonna be big.
