That Summer Tournament, better known as TST is Chip Damage’s biggest annual tournament we hold in August and have been for the last several years. Our roots are strong, comprised of our great community that has supported us through the thick and thin. But, this year, we are pushing it even further, making TST7 our biggest tournament to date. Bigger venue, more games, more prizes, more everything!
TST7 will NOT be taking place at the UofM as we have a NEW venue. Also, the event WILL be streamed all of Saturday and Sunday with the possibility of CDC Radio doing their 40th episode live! Be sure to follow us over at TWITCH.TV.
We got more good news!
TST 7 is an official Canada Cup 2012 Team Canada Wildcard Qualifier! The qualifier will be part of the AE2012 tournament that is happening at TST 7. This is open to Canadian players only.
If you win our AE2012 tournament, you qualify for the Wildcard 4 man tournament that will take place at Canada Cup on Oct 26th-28th in Calgary, AB. If you win THAT tournament, you will earn the 5th spot on Team Canada in the Canada Cup International 5v5 team tournament! Also, 50% of your plane ticket will be covered by CCG themselves!
Be aware that the Team Canada roster is comprised of 5 players with no character duplicates. This means if another qualifier tournament has run and a player using your character has already qualified, this automatically disqualifies the ability for the winning character to be used by anyone else. As CCG.Air is Team Captain, RYU is already locked. If a player using an already qualified character wins, the qualifying spot will be passed on to the next eligible placing player.
Just when you thought this couldn’t get any more hyped, we got word down the grapevine that there may be a little somethin’ somethin’ from Winnipeg’s very own Strata Studios! Our lips are sealed… just be sure to stick around, even when all the games are said and done.
As promised. This year’s TST will be taking place outside the UofM. It has been confirmed for Canad Inns on Pembina by the Tavern if you’re familiar. Here’s the full address and the room number:
Ambassador Room A
Canad Inns Destination Centre Fort Garry

Welcome, fellow Chipee Dees and welcome once again, to yet another episode of CDC Radio, the official Chip Damage podcast. We will soon be coming up on our 10th episode and you know what that means! PARTAY! Enough of that now, down to business. No doubt, the gaming world has been slow and we slowly creep towards Q4 in anticipation for all things big and wonderful.
In this episode, we give insight to what we’ve been playing, share stories of Canada Day, and even roast some marshmallows around the campfire as we endanger our own lives by shooting off fireworks in an enclosed studio/sauna.
Please keep pitching us your ideas for a subtitle for TST VI. TST III was “Remastered”, TST IV was “Live IV the Fight”. Let us know what you think would be fitting by leaving a comment below.
