Civil War V recap, shout-outs, and post mortem.
Okay. It’s been a week. I’m pretty sure I’m recovered. Before I go into analysis, I wanna give the biggest thanks to the staff at CWV. You guys are the best.
Senior Staff: Patrick, Dave, Adam, Matt, Blackula, Micheal, Josh, Colin, Millionz, and my brother John. Couldn’t have done this without you guys. Thanks so much.
Registration Staff: Karen, Jordan, Emily, Jessica, Jacob, Jake, Carrie, Loraine, and Becky. You guys were awesome! Reg went super smooth this year!
Other volunteer staff: Kyle, Min, Elisa, Damdai, Kev, Freddie, Mazer, Drew, Blake, Brandon, and others that I’m forgetting.
THanks to Big E for providing extra support.
Thanks to Spooky for streaming, and for Art for stepping up and getting the secondary stream duty.
Thanks to Tony for them cabs, they were great. Thanks also to Brandon Noel for contributing two as well.
Thanks to Brian “RockEmSockEm Tactics” Peck and NordicNinja from WHB for supplying the ASUS Monitors.
Thanks to our partner organizations: We Hit Buttons and Console Fighting All Stars
And thanks to our sponsors: Madcatz, Brokentier, CapCom, Monoprice, Lee’s, and Home Depot.
What went well: ( Nearly everything)
1) Events ran on time. Aside from a small Marvel/IJ hiccup at 7pm on Sat and a late start on Sunday, everything was pretty much on schedule.
2) Turnout. Numbers were up 30% overall from last year, and spectators included rounded it up to a cool 400!
3) Injustice! A 75 person event for a week 1 game was unexpected. The hype was also great! It was our 3rd biggest tournament and our biggest stream audience.
4) Stream was solid all weekend, if not a little on the low quality side. We got MANY more viewers than last year, and about as much as TX showdown.
5) Arcade room was awesome. All 4 ST tournaments were held.
6) Great crowd stuck around till late sunday, even though Marvel finals wasn’t crazy hype.
7) Great finals rematches! RyRy vs Chris and Unknown vs Chris were runbacks of last year.|
8)Crazy Raffle! I gave away A LOT of things! Thanks to Madcatz, BrokenTier, and Monoprice!
9) Power stayed on! Woot!
10 ) Swords and cannons? Best trophies ever?
What could be improved
1) Participation in Friday night events. Perhaps not doing a marvel 3v3 was a mistake, but there were a lot of people there on friday and not a whole lot of interest for team tournaments. Perhaps allowing for pre-registration would help? Maybe people aren’t that interested in teams?
I think having them be free with sponsored prizes could help a lot.
2) Stream quality. Not sure what do to improve this without changing the venue. It was solid, not spectacular. My focus is on the in-person experience though, because that’s what makes the event feasible from a financial standpoint. If people don’t show up, the event doesn’t run.
3) Low turnouts in non Capcom/IJ:GAU games. Everything other than those 4 tournaments had 30 men or less. However, these numbers are consistant with TX Showdown and NCR, so it’s not really a Civil War thing or a regional thing. Persona and Tekken both were solid at 30, but we had hoped for more. I’m open to suggestions, folks. To be honest, I don’t think pot bonuses work for getting the 90% of entrants who don’t think they’ll win.
4) Slight shortage on chairs on saturday, but not a huge issue.
5) could have used a little more variety in arcade games apart from Capcom/SNK… but know your audience, right?
Thanks to everyone that came, I’ll see you all at other tournaments and EVO!
Feel free to leave comments, thoughts, shout outs, and what you liked/didn’t like here or on Facebook.
Full results for other tourneys should be up soon.

Anonymous asked: Where can we see a schedule for what games will be on when and which streams?
Anonymous asked: I will be chaperoning my 15 year old grandson at the tournament but will not play any games. Do I need to purchase a registration? Thanks Alan Bobowski
You can purchase a spectator badge for $10 for the weekend.
Anonymous asked: When will the brackets be posted?
At the venue. While we have sorted people into timeslots, pools are fairly meaningless until at door regs come in.
We may be able to post timeslots
Anonymous asked: Quick question about the times. It says SFXT at 5 does that mean the Stream schedule or that is when the pools for that game start?
waltinho1730 asked: Hello this event I wonder if it will be broadcast on the internet ?
Team spooky and funkyP on twitch.
Anonymous asked: If I want to come spectate, what do I need to do?
Come to event, buy a spectator badge for $10 at door
Anonymous asked: Will there be an arcade stick players can use for people who don't have, for example, ps3 arcade stick, and only have a 360 arcade stick...?
No. You are responsible to provide your own equipment.
There may be friendly people there, there may not.
We do have a stick modder on site though.
Anonymous asked: Hi, The trounament it´s gonna be on stream live, right?
