So in Japan, when TAP was the latest TGM installment, players would meet up for a "celebration of death mode". These gatherings, wholly unofficial, were simply a way assemble enough players together to have a vs death mode tournament, to share strategies, or even to just simply observe famous players in action. Awesomely enough, when machine translated, "celebration of death mode" turned into carnival of death. Hardcore. I'm looking to try and organize a carnival of death on the March 25th, or 3/25 by the American calnedar. The so called "torikan date". Activities could include: A death mode VS tournament. The lag is almost unbearable, but it should be fun. A death mode records thread restricted to that day. As long as you don't go to sleep, you can still try keep trying to improve your record of the day. A lot of discussion about death mode strategy. Probably lots of doubles play while we've all got online TAP set up. Do these sound like fun things? Items on or off for the tournament? If you're interested, vote in the thread's poll. Feel free to comment on any of my suggested activities, and of course share ideas of your own. There's no way this will be as awesome as the original carnivals of death, but I'm sure we can still have lots of fun.
