Arcade Scene Cooling Down . . .

Well part of the purpose for organising the MB tourney is also to gather people of the MB community again and see who are the new guys / gals around. I doubt there is any gals and it is always rare to even see one at all. I understand it is always the same few around but it was better compared to back 1.5 years ago where I was like the only one with David and Reiroy camping the old MBAC machine back at Bugis TKA Virtualand.

As the title goes, the scene is dying down quite a bit, even for more popular ones like Blazblue, partly due to the fact of online play / console. MB, AH2 and Daemon Bride has problems attracting new players due to maybe different mechanics, faster gameplay and lousier graphics haha. Well it is the last quarter of the year and I think most people are busy with their own commitments and stuff (I am also having more commitments now)

Friday nights seems to be the day with the most number of people popping down at the arcade, while Saturday these days are dwindling down alot. People come and go and we make new friends every now and then. I should also organise some form of weekend console gaming every now and then for the guys around my area, provided we have enough people interested haha.

And well HI PEOPLE, I know this blog is not very active for a while due to a lazy community leader of MB, and I am gaming hopping around too much for the past few months with other fighting games like TH 12.3, Vanguard Princess, Blazblue, Arcana Hearts 2.

And while updating, to our new players who are playing MB, please head over to and join us there in the forums.

MBAA PS2 Console version has been out for a week already as I post the information here. I believe most people would have gotten their hands on it and busy trying out various stuff. So I decided to get our second MBAA tourney going since our Sugarmilktea is heading overseas (correct information?) and there would be no AH2 tourney for a while and it has been like 3 months since our 1st MBAA tourney.

So I need help in gathering names for the next tourney to see how good the response will be.
The date tentatively would be the 1st Saturday of Sept, 5th or the 2nd Saturday of Sept, 12th. I prefer 5th of Sept myself personally. If we have a good amount of names, then it would definitely be a go. So let's get cracking and hit our contacts, phone books etc and get people to sign up !

And some late updating of screenies of the MBAA PS2 game can be seen just below. I also put the images up on sgcafe action gaming forums or round1 forums.

Okie, sorry for being lazy guys, quite alot been going on and i got the pics of our winners here =p

Our winners with the gorgeous announcer from Arcadia. =)

Our winners with one of the managers from Arcadia.

Our champion Farhan the pro white len user !!! \(^^)/

The 1st runner up Serge with his punishable shielding Nanaya Shiki (^^)╧

And our 2nd runner up Dneo with his Hisui Koha Maids Team <(^^)>

You realise Serge is damn pissed off for getting 2nd, he ain't smiling in all the photos which he is in lol

I will go back and upload the bracket pics before I keep forgetting about it. If there is a chance for another tourney, I will try to make it round robin, double elimination or something so that everyone has more chance to play with the other players.

And we really should have taken a huge group photo for the event. Scolding myself for not remembering it (T_T)

T-shirts for tourney next time ?

I wonder if we can actually make some t-shirts for any MBAA tourney next time ? That is a suggestion i got from Hotshot and some of the guys during the time when they were here in SG.

Well if they want a t-shirt made then cost will go up of course =p
We can discuss this further next time when we meet up.

Thanks for all the support for the tourney !

Well it is over, thanks to everyone who came down and gave their support to their tourney. Cheers to our 4 malaysian friends who came down specially for the tourney.

Congrats to Serge, Dneo and Farhan for winning the top 3 for the tourney. Cheers to Ervine who managed to hitch 4th even though he only got to touch MBAA for 1 day.

I will try to upload some pics from the tourney ASAP, will be getting it from Hotshot who is the only one who bought a camera on that day. We need volunteers to bring down their cameras, I don't have one and I asked people on hamachi and only Hotshot responded.

Sugar is getting another AH2 tourney again so in the meantime go train on AH2 first guys, then maybe we see if the schedule and people permits again for me to organise another MB tourney.

Updated List of People Joining for now.

Here is the current updated and so called confirmed list of people joining.

Yukarin with friends ( 7 )
Bing Lun
Ming Jun (Full Moon Expert)
Ming Jun and Bing Lun friends x 2
Kelong aka 電動翡翠
Kiske (Long Range Broken Shit)
Dan aka AH2 Broken Player
Farp (Punches and more)
Musta (too much WoW)
David (too much Sanguo)
Ah Di (too much KOF)
Joel aka Broken Shit
Jeff (friend of Jon and Dan)

Currently, we have 31 people in the whole list. We just need 1 more to get our perfect 32 number. GO GO GO !!!

If anyone still wanna join, please inform me through whatever means possible. If anyone seriously wanna join the tourney and no spots left, there are some people who are willing to give you the spot. =)

Finalised Details and Poster to be up.

I will put up the finalised details and poster once farp is done with it. All details are more or less in their finalised forms except for the competition format which will be Single Elimination.

I discuss this with some of the guys and came up this decision cause if we are really gonna have 29 people in the tourney (some might be bringing more), then this will be the more feasible idea.
Even 2 rounds out of 3 double elimination is still gonna take a long time to finish.

We have 2 guests from Malaysia, which is Powa and Ervine from SGMBAC hamachi channel coming over to view the tourney as well as to join in the fun gathering, so welcome them with open arms guys. \(^^)/

Ervine should be joining in the tourney too, and I will try to persuade Powa too. But as he is a keyboard user for MBAC . . . godly one at that too, I leave it up to him. =P

So watch this page for more updates and details again.

(editted : As promised, here is the poster for the tourney, again thanks for farp for all the hard work !!! )
Just an added piece of information to all you guys. If the turn out is too good on the day itself, I might consider changing it to 3 point match single elimination instead of double.

Reason being is that I doubt you guys wanna stay for 6 hours over and the whole tourney turns out to be a test of endurance instead of skills as one of my friends pointed out to me haha.

Currently as of my last update, tentatively . . . I REPEAT, TENTATIVELY, I've got like 29 names on my list, and that's including me. If anyone gets any of his friends to join, we might hit the perfect number 32.

Let's see how things goes, i will continue to update you guys as more info comes =)

Going to continue with the MBAA tourney as planned.

Most probably the date will be set on 16th of May as of now. Arcadia wise seems to be fine with it. Now i just need to come out with the advertisement poster, rules and regulations and stuff and email to their marketing department.

Need help with a simple poster Sugar !!! Or Farp !!! I got the pics, just need to stick it altogether. =P

AH tourney was a success overall, glad to see so many people came down to both see and play. Got the crowd going, but if we had a proper commentry, it might even draw more people haha. =P

Give some time to kilvear for him to rip out the videos and stuff. Really a huge thanks to him for recording and ripping the videos for us. Did it for both BB and AH tourney already. Really appreciate it alot. I think must treat him to go makan or something already. Also thanks for akane for coming down to assist in the tourney. =)

Grats to all the winners and hope everyone managed to have fun and got to know the other players better. =)

Organising 1st MBAA tourney in Singapore.

Well here goes nothing. After seeing Kilvear getting thru with the BB tourney and Sugar who also managed to push thru his AH2.5 tourney, I have decided to organise our own 1st MBAA tourney.

Is a little late I know, but I am glad to see that the community has grown much bigger compared to the first time I knew it. So therefore I am organising this tourney up to gather all the players for some funtimes and hopefully get to know others outside from our usual MBAA group.

Tentatively, I have around 16-18 names more or less 80% confirmed that they will be participating. The format will be 1v1, double elimination system. I know some people suggested for a 2v2 tourney instead, but given the amount of people and some of them do not know each other at all, i decided to stick with the 1v1 format for now.

I am hoping to get the tourney going on the 9th or 16th of May, 9th is Vesak day.
More details will be posted once I contact Sugar and Farp to ask on how to approach Arcadia regarding this tourney, hopefully things can be done fast and hassle-free.
