  1. After a long hiatus, we’re back, announcing Ultimate Montreal Air Dashers 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RF6H-KNGYpM Presented by : When : July 1st 2017 (Teams on June 30th) Where : Mixed Virtual Arts, 2069 Rue Parthenais, Montreal, QC, Montreal, Québec H2K 3T1 Registration : https://smash.gg/tournament/ultimate-montreal-air-dashers-2017 Please pre-register to give us an idea for numbers, but there will be registration at the door, and all payment done will be at the venue. Main Tournaments : Blazblue Central Fiction (PS4) Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2 (PS4) Side Tournaments : Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax Ignition (PS3) Koihime Enbu (PC) Akatsuki Blitzkampf (PC) Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R (PS3) Tentative Schedule : Friday : venue opens at 5:00 PM 7 PM BBCF Teams 3v3 9 PM GGXrd Teams 3v3 Saturday : venue opens noon 2 PM Guilty Gear Xrd & DFCI 3:30 PM Koihime Enbu 7 PM BBCF & Akatsuki Blitzkampf 9PM Guilty Gear XX +R Stream : tba Rules : 2/3 rounds, 2/3 matches, loser can switch character, winners/losers/grand finals are 3/5 matches, 70/20/10, no unlimited/gold/etc... the usual rules. +R Macro rules same as Big E tournaments : specify character choice, then ask the other player if macros are ok. Venue fee : Friday 7$, Saturday 13$ Main games : 10$ Side events : 5$ Teams : Free Additional info / FAQ : Alcohol? We’ll try to get a license for the day. This tournament is held in Canada, therefore, if you are not Canadian, you will need a passport to enter the country. Look into ASAP if you are interested, these can take a while to get done. You might want to bring Canadian money, but you can alternatively just go to an ATM over here, or pay with your card. Also, when travelling to another country, your cellphones/smartphones enter roaming and additionnal charges will be applied for anything you do with them. Best idea is to turn off your data and we'll see what we can do about the wifi at the venue. Will I be OK if I don't speak French? Yes, lots of people in Montreal don't even speak French. The event is only one day, why? On weekdays, our venue, MVA, is only open on evenings. The Friday teams are just our regular monthly. All main tournaments will be on Saturday. Will I need to bring a jacket? No it’s actually warm here in the summer. Are you working on a group rate for a hotel? No, but the venue is very close to downtown where there are a lot of hotels and hostels, and it’s easy to get to the venue by public transit. If you're on a tight budget try asking if anyone wants to offer a place to crash, you never know. How is the parking around MVA? You can park on the streets around the venue for free generally, just make sure to read the parking signs. How do I get to MVA from the airport? There's a 24/7 bus that passes often (http://www.stm.info/en/info/networks/bus/shuttle/line-747-east/60997), it goes from the airport to downtown, from which it’s only 3 stops away on the subway. Costs 8$ and generally offers free wifi. When's Marvel? No cab in the back this year, sorry. Anything I need to know about driving in Montreal? Flashing green light means you have priority. You can't turn right on red lights, tie your seatbelt, speed limits are in KM/h so learn the equivalences, beware of potholes, avoid the giant orange cones, and don't drink and drive. Can I help? Sure! We'll need people to run the pools, check the door, and bring equipment. You can also help just by spreading the word so as much people as possible make it to this! Why should I come? http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/8805-umad-2014-results/ http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/6444-ultimate-montreal-air-dashers-2013-results-and-shoutouts/ http://www.dustloop.com/forums/index.php?/forums/topic/4860-montreal-air-dashers-apr-14-2012-results-and-shoutouts/ note : the day of this tournament is our national holiday, Canada Day. Many government services will be closed, but restaurants and such should be open. Also, people here aren’t always super patriotic towards Canada, so it’s kind of turned into a sort of moving day for this city.

    Montreal: Le Thread Generale Pour Weeaboo Fighters

    There are a few tournaments coming up in the next few months that some of us were considering travelling to. To split costs and make the planning easier, I've set up a few threads on Sankishin. If you're interested or have any questions related to these trips, please post there. Although there isn't a thread for it yet because I'm not sure when, we may also head to New York for a TSB at some point in the spring.

    Montreal: Le Thread Generale Pour Weeaboo Fighters

    Hey everyone, this week on Friday, we'll have a special guest, RIKIR, from Ottawa/Waterloo/Brampton. We'll take this opportunity to do a special exhibition, where he has to play everyone in a streamed 2/3 set. However, there will be a bit more to it than that. -First, we'll do a short "What hibiki does and how to fight him" lesson to make sure you aren't caught off guard by some of the more basic stuff he can do. (ex: what his drive does, what he can cancel it into. What his blockstrings might look like, where you can try to escape, what chains into his overhead, what it'll look like. etc.) -Then, everyone will play Rikir in a 2/3 set. Between and after the matches, I'll be offering optional coaching to both players. -Finally, we'll tally the results at the end. If Rikir has more losses than wins, he has to play me in blade arcus at some point during the weekend. We'll start around 8pm on Friday at MVA (venue opens a 6pm)

    NEC is the next major we are planning on travelling to. If you are interested in coming with us, so we can split the costs of the hotel and getting there (car rental, gas), please post your interest in this thread : http://www.sankishin.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=343&p=1763#p1763 Apparently they sold out a block of the hotel rooms already, so if possible we'd like to look into it by the end of this week. Feel free to ask questions in that thread if you are unsure of any details that aren't already mentioned in the event page. There will also be a one day tournament in Ottawa in late November, if you are interested in that, please post your interest in this thread : http://www.sankishin.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=348

    We are planning a BBCF Swiss Rounds type tournament Friday around 8pm, so we'll need many consoles, and don't forget to bring your own stick/controller. Also for those coming to Canada Cup, we will look at booking hotels and splitting rides for that Friday before the tournament, around 7:30pm. If you are interested in coming but will not be present, please post in the Sankishin Thread with your availabilities and preferences in terms of when you'd leave and return (ex: prefer Friday evening - Sunday evening, or Thursday evening - Monday afternoon). All singles tournaments should be Saturday unless something changes... http://www.sankishin.com/board/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=339&sid=a78c0ed3f7c90f9303c0c3a9df5030dd

    Speaking of otakuthon, if ever you play fighting games there and meet new players, please let them know about our group and events. We don't have many chances to reach out to other people, and this is one of the better opportunities. Also because our group wasn't on enough various websites and social media platforms, we now have a Discord : https://discord.gg/GWTcQSU
