Have you ever been to / participated in a public video game tournament?


Have you ever been to / participated in a public video game tournament?
EVO 2016
The reason I am asking this question is because... I am going to a fighting video game tournament in Las Vegas in about two weeks!

I'm entering the tournament to play Street Fighter 5 and Mortal Kombat X.

This is the Super Bowl of fighting game tournaments, and there will be pro and amateur players from all over the world in Sin City for all the festivities as well as to pwn each other. :-D

Have you ever been to a public video game tournament before, whether as a spectator or as a participant? What game (s)? How did you do in the tournament?

If no, would you want to go to one (either to play or to watch)? 🎮

  • No but I'd love to go to watch! I'm not confident in my own abilities on the account of lacking a penis.

  • One of my favorite movies as a kid was "The Wizard" (Fred Savage)... But no, never been to a public one. I worked in a few arcades, and while I don't get to play much, I'm a bit of a gamer at heart. I'd compete, but only if I good live and breathe the game to get used to it... But I would go if I had someone I could support. I don't generally follow the pro competitions, but it'd be fun.

  • At the time when I did the whole tournament thing, it was back around 05-09. I played quite a few tournaments with a doubles partner and FFA in Halo 2 and 3. I never played in the actual official MLG tournaments but I was offered a few times to play for teams. I always declined because I valued school more. I met a few pro's though. I got to play with a few of them and I was barely able to keep up with them.

    But now, i haven't been into video games like I used to for a few years now. I finally became burned out by them. I play mkx every once in a long while, but I just play to learn combos and that's it. But the best of luck if you're going to compete at the tournaments. They can be pretty fun. Just don't let your anger get to you if you lose

  • when I was younger I visited some smaller local LAN parties. Later I've been in a clan which organized some themselves and had also some professional CS:S players in the top German leagues (ESL Pro Series).

    on our lan parties I participated twice in turnaments... got both times second

    • but like I said those were small LANs... like 120-150 people at the same time there. no major events like Evo lol

    • but I've watched some of the big events of course

    • Asker no I am really alpha at those things though and usually I don't go cause the prize isn't really that much money.

  • I guess technically... The community center use to have video game consoles and held tournaments in the summer when I was about 12 years old. I beat about 50 kids back to back in the summer camp and other local kids/teens that showed up... Besides that nope, I never really had an interest in gaming tournaments.
