qwerty, after this weekend, I need you to hold me to this; I want to get halfway decent at GG, which means I need to make it out to Rod's gatherings (or wherever else they are, if open invitation)

Any one I don't make it to that I could have, I need you to tell me I'm a dick for. That's really all I need from you, you down?

PS you can't spell n***** without gg

Those times SHOULD be accurate if PEOPLE SHOW UP ON TIME. Last time everyone was jerking off or something and showed up WAY later than they should have. Everyone showing up late is what caused people to GET MAD and CRY over how the stream went.

Ok I can see people having a hard time making it to a 10am ranbat like these started out as, but man, when people don't need to get here till 3pm, kinda stupid to wait on them if they can't make it by then unless of course there is notice ahead of time of said lateness for a GOOD reason, not "i overslept by a fucking hour and left people waiting at Willy's house" if people can't make it by 3 or 4pm for BB, fucking DQ them. I dunno how bad people are punctually for GG and Melty so I can't have an opinion.

Entry Fee for this iteration has been updated.

Tournaments are run on PS3 setups, casuals will be run with spectators on 360s.

Also, in regards to being on time; please come on the assumption I'm going to be strict. If we seek to become bigger we must start getting into the habit of holding a slightly more professional attendance hour than a holding for all friends.

That isn't to say there isn't any flexibility, but starting the habits should make things overall easier.

Do tell me what things should be altered in the future, but it's too late to shift too many things around at this point as I've also contacted a couple of other clubs in participation.

Umm for the 360's will we be able have to an active internet connection for a brief while? Because I believe you get locked out of DLC if you take your HDD to another console and have to connect to live. So we would have to connect to the internet start BB then we should be fine for the DLC. Not that this affects many people though if it can't be done.

This still won't work. The licenses for DLC are registered to your 360. You can only transfer licenses once a year thanks to Microsoft's stupid policy, so we wouldn't be able to get the DLC on the new 360s, unless you want to lose the DLC on your own 360... If you want the DLC, you need to bring your own 360.

You can use your DLC on another system as long as you're logged into XBL. You do not need to register your DLC on another system unless you want to use it offline. Not sure what happens when you get disconnected from XBL in the situation that Crosell is suggesting.
