He was never officially banned because he is friends with several execs and because of some constitutional nonsense.

I'd also like to point out that 54 is terrible attendance.

hopefully it will increase with next semester's fresh meat. We need to just take games that are massivlely played and put them in the spotlight and put more time towards them.

Another thing we should try to focus on are rage quitters. We had a huge amount of Freshman ragequit on us during the first LAN of last semester and I know for a fact that they did not return for the second, which hurt us. We need to look into more options to fix this problem.

Why did they ragequit?

Considering that they were freshmen it would be a fair guess that they'd never played in such a competitive environment and that can be a major turnoff for those who came to simply have fun with friends. I know in the past I've ragequit console tournaments over ridiculously fanboyish rulesets so maybe it's time to take a giant step back and look at what will keep the students in the room. We don't HAVE to use professional tournament rulesets, those were created with the understanding that people would get pissed but there'd always be other players to take their place. We don't have that luxury.

IMO the execs need to look over the attendance sheet and try to track down the ones that left and politely ask them why they left, what do they think needs changing, and if there's anything you can do to get them to give us another try. That last one may look like begging them to come but trust me, it makes them feel wanted and when dealing with customers works almost every time. If they cooperate and give information that can be used to improve the club, offer them a discounted entry to the first event next semester. $3 entry or a "2 for 1" offer.

It had something to dO with the Call of Duty tournament, I believe it had something to do with surround sound headsets during the tournament but I'm not 100% sure if that was it. But asking them why they left would be a good idea. Does anyone here know those peoples names?

Are you implying console players should not be allowed to wear headsets? If so, why?

The console section is extremely loud and allowing the use headphones gives a distinct advantage that the common player will not have.

Like I said above, if your goal is to create an ultra-competitive environment to the point of having headphones on consoles you're going to have a hard time attracting those who just come to have fun, which is around 80% of the people that attend events. The more competitive something is treated, the less fun it becomes. That is true for every game on every gaming platform. Your goal is to find the common ground in the middle, where competition play is still fun. If you have players taking the win so seriously that they're bringing headphones to get it, you need to swing back towards fun a little. IMO, anyway. At that point the game has changed from "who is better" to "who's bringing the best equalizer" and while we've always had people bring their "special" or "good" controllers (lol yeah ok) we've never allowed players to so blatantly give themselves an advantage over the others.

What happens when someone brings a keyboard and mouse to a Halo Reach tournament? You've already started down the slippery slope, you'd almost have to allow it. Even MS said doing that would be unfair.

The PC section requires everyone to use a headset. Everyone is on the equal footing.

EDIT: Even with "inferior" hardware, the PC section is almost always skill based. I got my first premium headset ($75) at a LAN, won it using a $20 headset. Also got my first premium mouse ($45) at a lan, won it using a $15 logitech. Also got my first premium mousepad ($25) at a lan, won it using... nothing. Actually I think I was using a piece of printer paper but w/e. IIRC most of that was won using a laptop that was absolutely terrible. Nickname can attest to how horrible it was.

lol I know. I was referring to people who brought in off brands they thought were superior to officially-branded or those who bought in "new" controllers and then refused to share them. I'm guilty of that last one but after paying $50 for one of the original wavebirds there's no way I'm letting it out of my sight :) They're too damn hard to find now lol

Fightsticks are kindof an odd exception to my earlier comment because they don't technically give you any advantage. It's like preferring a GCN controller in mario kart wii or SSBB.

Yea fightsticks are an interesting breed of controller. In my opinion, it makes playing games such as SF4 and MK9 feel nostalgic and fun! I kinda want to get one for my Wii to try Smash on it but if it runs at the same price as the other two (MVC3 $150, MK9 $180) I may have to wait.

But getting back on topic, I remember some of the new people were complaining about the headsets because, as previously stated by MasterP, it gives an unfair advantage to people who dont have them. Someone gave me the example of being able to hear footsteps behind a person in COD4 or the firing of a silenced pistol (which should not be possible without headsets).

I hear that, I've got a $200 PC joystick. Specialty controllers definately increase the fun factor.

I've played CoD enough to know that I wouldn't want to be using speakers or a TV in an online match. Same with BFBC2 or HaloPC. You can actually tell when someone is using speakers because they're the ones that never hear you sneaking around or take cover when you snipe at them and miss. I have to say, I kinda prefer playing against people like that :D

I understand what you’re saying MasterP but if the gaming club is going to host tournaments they should expect some competitive people showing up. The competitive people are going to want to use the equipment they bought otherwise it would be a waste of money. If you want a non competitive atmosphere then there shouldn’t be tournaments, but rather just have free play. More people would most likely have an opportunity to play if all we did was free play.

As for the people leaving, they were just upset that they had lost in the tournament and decided to take their equipment and leave. It had nothing to do with using headphones during matches; they were some of the ones using them. This has been a touchy topic for me just because if I decide to buy a nice quality headset I would want to use it at anything that is video game related. Sure, I would get use of it at home but why would I not want to use it in a tournament?

This is all IMO. Maybe it’s because I have been around MLG too long, but I feel if you buy something for a specific purpose you should be able to use it.

Kaz if you want their names PM me.
