Poverty Parties begins late this month (November), Tekken Tag Tournament 2 the game of choice

The fighting game community has spoken. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has won the vote to be the first game in the Poverty Parties tournament series.

Hey guys and gals! It's Munoz!

I'm here to bring you a new online tournament series called "Poverty Parties." This series will be featuring fighting games that I have in my collection. Why did I decide to do this? I've loved hosting tournaments since the old Super Smash Bros Brawl tournaments I ran back in 2009. After I quit the scene, I sorta missed hosting tournaments and decided to start them up again.

Now I know what you're thinking next, why online? What's in it for me if I enter? Since getting a venue in NYC is tough and people already run events at Next Level, I thought I'd run some stuff for the online players. What makes this different from any online tournament is the fact that I'm offering prizes (personally offered) to the winners of these tournaments.

The first tournament has been voted on and it will be Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT2) on the PS3. The rules for this will be tournament standard TTT2 rules, 2/3 to 3/5 top 3, double elimination tournament. I need about 8-16 entrants in order to give out prizes. Unlimited entries!
