    Yeah, we should have one out by you/Ontario region Hatman, assuming things pick up post KOF license releases and all. I know I'd be willing to help out the best I could from way out West, and I would obviously attend at the very least.

    The problem (and I'll keep this short because this isn't the thread for that) is that we (our playgroup) cannot run it as we have some guarantees that if it is done over here, a ton of well-known people won't show up and to be honest, I don't want to run a tournament for one of the biggest prizes in UFS if the competition isn't on the level. Bizarro UFS Montreal may be, but our track record in tournaments show that we're not playing the game proper.

    I'm not saying we couldn't actually help out in running the tournament - just that it cannot be held here due to various considerations.

    Still, grats on your win and grats on the Canadian Grand Finals!

    I believe in banning by example. Be the problem you see in the game so others will view it as a problem.
    Then, all you have to do is not lose.

    As you know, my favorite symbol too. Throne Room is a very good card and is essentially a +4 speed to your attacks if you sucessfully enhance with Amy on an attack with a block mod. HOWEVER, it is a huge double edged sword in the meta currently. Namely, any deck that runs those fancy attacks without enhance phases (see Concussion Blast) is super deadly once this drops, because it comes at you without an enhance phase at essentially +2 speed.

    I am trying to push Jason for a Toronto Canadian Nats. It think the competition would be very good. Michigan, New York/Jersey, and ATL would be there for sure. So, I think the competition would be fierce.

    Also, Congrats once again to all of the champions. But, heed my warning, next time, Rochester will not be bringing home second place prizes!

    As a frequent abuser of Concussion Blast and Knee-Capper, there are few things I like seeing more than my opponent plunking down a copy of Throne Room.

    Congrats on the win, dude!

    We'd definitely try to show up in force, potentially bringing most members of Team Phail if that were to happen.

    Nats was a great time. Legacy was a blast! The Muuuuj scrubbed out during teams and we had a harsh breakup. I pretty much told him I am leaving him for his older brother version. It was sad. Morathi had a tough tourney and barely missed top cuts. Oh whale.

    Good times.

    Phil Birch you're my boy!!!

    Tourney report to come...

    Hurricane out
    STAND BACK! There's a Hurricane comin' through!
