Thanks for coming out everyone, we had a very good turnout with quite a few upsets throughout the day. Big thank you to Irben Entertainment for lending us monitors and extension cables for the tournament. Please check them out on 1389 Pembina! It was a pleasure to work with WePlayGames and collaborate for our annual March tournament. Also big shoutouts to the community members from both Chipdamage and WePlayGames groups that were able to bring stations and equipment to help everything run smoother.
Thanks again for supporting our events and we’ll see you at the next one!

Just wanted to thank everyone who came out to support our Street Fighter V Launch Tournament yesterday! It was great seeing some new and old faces make an appearance yesterday. Thank you to everyone who brought setups and for being patient with us as we worked through the growing pains of a SFV tournament. Thanks again.
Jericho is still running amok.
The tournament footage should be uploaded within a few weeks and check out our facebook page for images from the tournament as well as the bracket/pool images.
See you at the next tournament!
We’ll be hosting a launch tournament for Street Fighter V. The newest iteration in the most popular fighting game at our tournament events.
Like all launch tournaments that we do, there will be no entry fee as this is a free tournament. Keep in mind that this also means there will likely be no prizes. This is more of an early chance to get everyone playing the game.
Another tradition that we do at launch tournaments is we set up round robin pools to start things off. This guarantees all entrats up to 5 matches. The top two placers in every pool will then be placed in the tournament bracket later in the day.
This time around, if you do not qualify out of your pool, don’t worry as we have something else planned for you. Stay tuned!
Pools will start at 2:00pm so try to be there early. If you don’t make it in time or when you are knocked out of the tournament, we will have a casual station set up to use for the entire day.
Also, and this applies to all PS4 tournaments. Official wireless PS4 controllers are now tournament legal as there is now a desync option built-in to the PS4. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PLAYERS TO DESYNC ALL CONTROLLERS THAT ARE NOT BEING USED, BEFORE THEIR MATCHES. If any pauses occur that were not due to the players in the match but because they failed to desync the controllers, the players must play their match out. If you don’t know how to desync the controllers, please ask a staff member to assist you.
