We are going to try to get through as much of top 8 as possible on day 1. For those of you that don't make top cuts, we will have plenty to do on Day 2! Stay tuned as ATLPiglet and I are planning something awesome!

We hope that everyone can come and join us for this event! This should be a very diverse and exciting tournament as it will be one of the first to use the new format (which is awesome!). We are expecting players from Michigan, New Orleans, South Carolina, and other top players from across the country so come on out and prove that you are the king of the South!

I also wanted to thank Jasco Games for catering to player requests and allowing this and the Bay Area PTC to use Post-Rotation! The format is a ton of fun and its really goes to show that this game cares about its players. Thank you guys!

Since its close to July 4th tickets are a little pricey but I am going to try to come. Just need to see if I can get Friday and Saturday off. I'll keep you posted also if I can go I'll need a place to crash who wants to show me some southern hospitality.

I'm in the same boat as Aaron in terms of getting the time off and needing a place to crash. If I can find a pretty cheap flight and can get the time off, I'm there

:( Jasco is letting us run it post rotation because the event is only 2 days before the cut off.

Danny and Aaron - we will do our best to make sure that you guys are comfy! Let me know if you guys find some affordable tickets and one of us can surely accommodate you.

Updates!

So we can tentatively house about 8 or so people. Out of towners looking to get a room for the Friday/Saturday, post up in here. There are several people that are looking for crash space and splitting a room is extremely cheap if we run out of floor/couch space.

The ticket link has also been added to the main page for those interested in Pre-reg. Make sure you that you pre-reg! It saves you money and allows us to have this event!

http://www.jascogames.com/tickets Go here if you are too lazy to go back to the main page!

SWEETTTTTT! We are 100% on this time. Can't wait!

New Orleans will have a room at a hotel for Friday and Saturday. Currently all the bed spots are taken up, but if you just need a floor and a roof we can probably house a guy or two.

AARON NOOOOOOOOOO! Sorry to hear that man. Next year then!

@Bo - THIS MAN IS A HERO! If you guys need floor space, hit up the NO guys. They are rad!

06-29-2014, 11:57 AM

Guess they gotta pick up their socks for gencon because right now it's obvious to me Michigan > Atlanta!!! BOOM!!!

Wow, I heard that echo off the great lakes. How does that even happen!?

Sketch
06-29-2014, 12:07 PM
I'll call myself out and say that I played like complete crap the whole tournament.

I have faith in the deck I piloted (Tim Keefe Water Blazing Storm/Deadly Precision) just misplayed it massively - lack of trigger time with the deck really hurt me in a few key moments, and I had a few brainfarts that put me on tilt for the rest of the day, which is rare.

Shoe and Piglet both hit T8 with Ben Shoemaker and Jack Lambourne, respectively.

Don't you worry Garett, I'll be back at GenCon to shut you up. :D

K' vs Vespera in finals.

dutpotd
06-29-2014, 12:29 PM
Oh, but I am worried ^^

Especially when I hear you say you have faith in a Tim Keefe deck.

You Atlanteans do best when you are playing Piercing Howl decks (Keenan last ATL PTC, you/Drew at US nats). Go back to what you are good at for worlds so it can finally get banned! Oh wait, I'm sure Ben was sporting it in him, he just - uh - I blame the weird doll thing.

And when will Piglet learn these throw decks just don't win tournaments - despite their guaranteed wins against suckers in swiss, they are bound to run into a deck prepared for them in top cuts :)

Smack talk is on, but my free advice is off, all I'm saying is Michigan is in your house stealing your prizes!

K' vs Vespera in finals.

Michigan is tier 2 next to Northeast UFS. You were there when Rochester alone took 4 of the top 8 slots in Michigan PT last year, now you see Penn taking as many top 8 slots as anyone

dutpotd
06-29-2014, 01:37 PM
You were there when Rochester alone took 4 of the top 8 slots in Michigan PT last year

And then there were none in top 4?

Sorry, but Michigan and Atlanta are still tier 1 and 2 as far as playgroups go. The cardboard results speak for themselves :)

Sure, you've (assuming you associate yourself with NE UFS) got on cardboard thrice, but twice you piloted my creations and the other was against me playing a fun deck - so I reserve the right to judge.

Don't worry, I am the caretaker of all the stats. Atlanta needs to pull up its socks, but this phantom NE UFS needs to put on its socks before it can be in the esteemed position to be told to pull them up!

Hehehe, hopefully this talk will make you guys up your game at gencon, if only to shut me up ^^

We may have less cardboard, but our lot is constantly taking a lot of spots at the top tables. It's time to end the old dynasties.

That's the spirit! But, with someone blessed with many second place finishes myself, I can tell you spots mean nothing if you don't convert. Tell your 'lot' to bring their A game to Gencon this year, I don't want to be disappointed :)

I think you failed to account for Tim Keefe. The rest of you need to take note -- we ran the Empire Circuit to keep ourselves sharp. You all just played locals and sometimes traveled to "majors". MAKE YOUR OWN MAJORS, spread this awesome game, and you'll win at cards and at life.

I don't disagree with the advice, but I didn't fail to count Tim Keefe. +1 cardboard doesn't mean that NE UFS is significantly closer to Atlanta/Michigan, and that is both recently and in the past.

Tim may have called the store to order the socks, but no one picked them up yet for NE UFS to put on. Maybe worlds will change my mind, maybe :)

Ha, I am cool with "Canada" being considered a region, like Michigan, ATL or NE.

We may be spread out, but our hearts are aligned through Tim's coffee and gold coins!... And horrible shipping rates & times for UFS product. We all share that pain, I believe.
