  4. I was the Head TO for Final Round, Apple was the Pokken General. Some of the issues that arose out of that are entirely my fault. I blame no-one but myself for the mishaps that happened there. And for the two tournaments I ran, if there isn't major feedback regarding the event, I can't just go asking people to make stuff up. If there seriously wasn't an issue with the event, then so be it. I still heard my criticisms about the events, and took those to heart. Hell, I still hear about problems with DHATX17 today. These feedback threads have never been focused on an attack on anyone. They are intended for people to voice their opinions on issues with the event. People are allowed to voice their opinions with it, and now with the survey option, they can rate the tournament and provide feedback anonymously.
  5. SuperTiso, as i explained on Twitter, I have done feedback threads previously on here as an open forum. I intend to always offer options to submit feedback regarding my events, and people can be 100% truthful with me. This feedback thread is not anything malicious toward ANYONE. Without feedback, we have no way for us to improve our events. If there are repeat complaints, that means we as TOs overlooked something that should have been addressed. We should be learning from the mistakes, instead of repeating them. Again, this is not an attack on anyone. Not The Apple Boom, not the Big E Staff. No-one.
  6. For the sake of feedback, we will be sharing the anonymously submitted feedback given by the survey here as well. 100% anonymously, i have no idea who submitted what.
  7. Hi folks! We want to hear your feedback about the event! Discuss anything about the event, whether you're a player, commentator, spectator, etc.! Anything we can do to help improve future tournaments, let me know!

  9. Ladies and gents, When I stepped into the role for head of Pokken Arena, I was introduced to a back room channel. I began using this channel, instead of some sort of "higher-power club", as a leadership channel and as a project management channel. We began organizing efforts to improve things around PA, the main discords, etc., and the organization has worked well, I think. However, because it was a "back room", it has often limited our speed of progress on certain projects, simply because we don't have enough hands available in the leadership to help run with the potential projects. I want to change this. I'm asking for responsible volunteers to join us with projects to help better things around the Pokken Community. I need people who are go-getters, and can help us actually implement some projects, get some traction on them, and try to get them up and running as soon as possible. I need people who can bring new ideas to the table, and maybe even act as the project lead to help manage the project, and help delegate tasks to those who are willing/able to help with the project. If you are interested in helping with project work, you can join us on the discord channel here: https://discord.gg/XVvPdZV Please note that if you are in the channel, you are expected to be helpful and contributing something productive to the discord channel. Failure to be productive in the channel may result in removal from the channel. I appreciate your interest in helping with this community's development!

  15. Hi folks! With the buzz about Pokkén Tournament DX, we’re seeing more and more activity and new faces in our various locations in the community. We have reports 10x the usual activity than normal on the forums alone, and that is fantastic. Keep up the good work, everyone, and welcome to the community! We caught wind of a UK TV/twitch show named On the DDL, and thanks to @naysayerz, Rudafuda has now been interviewed twice regarding the Pokkén community, and the outlook on the game looking forward. This was a great avenue, since I was told that their TV portion nets near 40k viewers. An excellent opportunity, and Rudafuda did a great job talking about the community, the game, and our dedication to seeing this become something great. We also have a submission button on our Front Page! We have one Front Page Editor at the moment, Jetsplit, but he can’t have eyes on everything all at once! If you find something that you think is worthy of front page material, be sure to submit it to that box for Pokkén Arena staff to review, and you might just see it up on the front page! In other big news, @STDXALLISTER was selected to participate in the e3 Invitational and represent the Pokkén community at this event! This is alongside other youtube stars and some notable FGC players. That event occurs TODAY, so good luck to those participating! Nintendo seems very serious about getting involved with the competitive side of their games, and Pokkén DX showed as one of their first of three titles they are supporting! Also, OUR DISCORD IS NOW PARTNERED! We are recognized as an incredibly active discord, and being partnered is amazing. I look forward to the continuing days of growth on the discord moving forward. You can easily reference this discord link now by just typing in discord.gg/pokken into your web browser of choice. Invite your friends who are interested in the game! We also announced Battle of the Bandwidths 2! An North America online tournament that the winner will win a pre-order of Pokkén Tournament DX! You can sign up for this bracket at challonge.com/BotBW2 . Looking forward to seeing the competition there. Just yesterday, demo stations for the game popped up for select locations around the US, and a few of the Tri-state region got to test out the new content. It provided valuable information on the characters and the new support set, and it all looks incredibly interesting to poke around with. You can view the footage on twitter, @ReyDelEmpire and @MinsPokken. This weekend is gonna be big! We’ll have Tekken’s Harada at CEO (unsure if he will stop by in the Pokkén area, or if his focus will be on Tekken 7 solely), and also some big names in Nintendo watching, by the buzz going around twitter! With Dreamhack also happening in the EU, this weekend is going to be really good for Pokkén. Till next time!
