I might can integrate single players looking for teams into the registration system. I hope to have it online this weekend so I'll let you know.

I promise they are out there, just not in our forums.

We had more teams sign up last year than we had spots for them.

Obviously did not get the tournament registration online this weekend, too busy working on our 20 page full color program and updating the website.

I do hope to get it up very soon, and I plan to email all registered attendees the second it is available and stable!

I was on team Icky People and was also confused on the whole "coach" aspect of team VVV. Well anyways UGS did a HORRIBLE job on all the tournies plus the lame prizes. All we got was a plaque, same for halo 3 4v4 and GH 3. Bawls was the only decent prize and everyone who placed in the top 3 got a case. In my opinion, and I know I'm not the only who feels this way, UGS should NOT run tournies at CGS next year because all the other tourney directors for the other tournaments had good prizes. For instance, look at DDR!?!?!?! 1st and 2nd place received high end prizes. To wrap this up many people drive many hours, took off work, paid for a ticket, and came out with only a plaque (which was kinda cool I guess). As far as the event in general is was pretty good and the award ceremony/select start was good as well (esp. select start).

PS: This is only half the story on how bad the tournies were ran, did I mention they were cut short????????

I've alraedy posted most of my thoughts in the comments thread, but it did suck how the Gears Tourny got cut short, There were still quite a few games that had to play, before it was supposed to be over, but oh well.

If you wanna play with me, hit me up, but tell me who you are so I can try and figure out which person from the tourny you are.

I was in the room for Gears, not as a player, but as a spectator between the quake and sc matches and watched vVv play.

Their coach was seriously annoying. If I was the tournament director, I would have dq'd them for unsportsmanship behavior.

basically everything that h240 and link v2 said.

This is all I will say, I was super hyped about getting to see some of the events at CGS and possibly winning some decent stuff at Gears of War. This was not the case for me. Because the Gears tourney ran so late and was so disorganized I didn't get to see any of the speakers or presentations and on top of that everyone who placed in Gears only got a case of bawls to SHARE among four people. A case of twelve among four people is three dollars worth of bawls. Gears and Halo were two of the biggest tournaments there and the prizes were extremely minimal. I know it is a bit selfish to gripe about prizes but when you spend over 8 hours in a tourney keeping you from seeing anything else at the convention. Honestly it feels like a put forth a whole ton of effort for a nice pat on the back and three bucks. Oh and we can enter another UGS tournament as a price, so we were competing for a buy one tournament get one free coupon? Honestly I wouldn't want to play in another one of UGS's tournaments which were poorly ran and organized. Honestly I think CGS would have been awesome this year, too bad my only experience was getting shafted out of the Summit experience and waiting 8 plus hours to play five games of Gears.

all I am saying is third place for every tourney got better prizes than first place for gears or halo 4v4. If UGS runs it again then Icky People will not be making a show again.

yea alot of people travel from different parts of NC to this event, and it was BS
we left early, since we had a 2 hour drive back home.
i would have been mad if i stayed all the way to the end and got a case of bawls.....
and yea im still mad about that " manager "
i guess if we go next year i'll take my mom, dad, brother, and every damn body to be our spotters for the tournament and tell us where the hell the action is

I also heard that coaches were NOT allowed by UGS in Halo 3 4v4. Why then would they be allowed in GOW 4v4...

Whoops forgot to mention this as well. If you go to UGS's website and look at their "rules" for Gears of War 4v4 you would notice they didn't even follow those rules. For instance, there's a no offensive language rule and the lady who was running the tourney was swearing more than anyone and her daughter (I think it's her daughter) was in the room to witness it. That's not MATURE at all. Why post rules if you, who's running the tourney, can't follow up on it. I'll be posting more complaints later, right now I want to try to enjoy games.

PS: Also, on a comment that Meatloaf said, I agree totally about being shafted on the event. Why pay $10 to come to the event if the free tournament that was run poorly takes up ALL YOUR TIME.

Technically, the 10 dollars is to be considered your entry fee for the tournament.
Or, at least, in my mind it is.

i dont even know why the charged $10 with there not being cash prizes. i guesss they did it to pocket the money because i know they dont have to pay the college since the frateity is from there, so where is the money going ?
yea the girls running gears was cursing like a sailor...

I know that Tanooki, that's why I said why spend $10 to get in the door for the event if the free tournament that was ran so poorly takes up all your time. Yeah I guess I could of tried to go to the keynote speech but why get dq'ed for being absent. My team almost got dq'ed because I went to the bathroom and when I got back like 2 minutes later the lady was like I almost dq'ed you because you weren't here... I mean come on it's not like they were calling for me forever and ..our time went ahead of schedule because ANOTHER TEAM was not there at the time but they didn't get dq'ed. Ironic isn't it. That lady was on a power trip in my opinion. I can understand that you are in charge ( I think she was. She better have been the way she was treating people) but she was not consistent with calling the rules what so ever. I heard this was true in the halo 3 4v4 as well.

Oh Tanooki, I mis understood what you said. The $10 was to get into the event that's why they took the money at the door, not at the room of each tournament. My fiancee had to pay $10 to get in just to watch. The money was for the event in general, not to play. You could play in multiple tournies if you wanted to.

I think you guys were sitting in front of me at the award ceremony. ^.^


And, the primary reason for going to the tournament is to play in some sort of competition, at least, for most people, so I saw the fee as "entry" to be eligible. And, I could see why they would make non-competitors pay, because if you let one person in free, than everyone will pull the "Oh, but I'm not here to play, just to watch." People suck like that.

It sounds like the person running it was stressed out. I think if they split up the high populated events (like how they moved SSBM away from the other fighters), it would run a bit smoother. They'll probably think of a way to make things less crazy for next year, it takes a little trial and error to figure out what works best.

Stressed out?!?!?! That's her job. If she is runnin the event oh well. Many people have stressful jobs. She has done this before so that is no excuse to be swearing in an event with a rule against that. She was more than stressed out, she could of even been bi-polar.

Yeh, the lady also changed her own rules multiple times in that tourny. Team Tron played 3 games of Gears that day an each time we played, the rules were a little different from the last time. It was really annoying. I also think we could have taken third in the Gears tourny if we had been able to finish it out; but Icky and vVv were better than us, however I think we did pretty good for just meeting our teamates for the first time ever that day. Plus I hadn't played Gears in about 4 months, Zechs in about 5 months, Matt had only played twice in his life, and Spenc hadn't played in about a year.

Hopefully we can be more of a challenge for Icky next year, if ya'll decide to come that is, cause I don't blame ya'll for being pissed about how disorganized everything was. I didn't even get to go down and look at any of the exhibits, well, we were in the H3 4v4 and the Gears tourny, but when they say your gonna be up in a few mins. and they don't call you until 3 hours later, it kinda sucks. But I gotta say, that it was an awsome experience where I got to meet some awsome gamers, and made quite a few friends and connections. Maybe we can play again some time Icky.
