PLEASE EVERYONE! GO TO XSNSPORTS.COM, AND REGISTER IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY. WHILE THERE, PLEASE POST ON THE TOPSPIN FORUM, COMPLAINING ABOUT THE INABILITY TO PLAY DOUBLES TOURNAMENTS! IF WE MAKE ENOUGH NOISE PERHAPS THEY WILL FIX THIS. GO THERE NOW. THANKS.

 

Been recruiting for this tournament for a while. And we now have enough couples to start a 19 couple (38 person) tournament! Unfortunately, xsnsports.com does not yet support Top Spin (last time I checked). When it does, I will send out invitations to the list below. At that point, it wil be first come first serve based on the timely manner that people accept their invitation for the tournament:

Well folks, XSN still doesn't support Top Spin or Amped, and the rumor in the XBOX.com forums is that it won't happen until mid-November. I talked to Xbox support, and the guy told me that MS hasn't made an official announcement yet, and that he would not give me one.

 

Anyway, as soon as it is available, we will have the tournament. My wife really likes the game, and we are excited to compete. How are your wives hacking it?

At the moment I'm having a hard time tearing my wife away from Amped 2. I even had to bail on the LCVG guys last night so she could work on her career! So our Top Spin skills are not getting the attention they need. Still, I look forward to losing and having some laughs along the way in the tournament. I did ask about the male/female preference and the little lady is leaning towards male, but will be fine if we play with the ladies.

Tell the lady to open her mind, concentrating on males cuts her options in half. We've been playing with females so far when Top Spinning. Don't have a particular preference. We'll see what some other folks think before we make a decision.

 

Tell your gal that MY gal is ready to whip her good. Then afterward, we'll play some Top Spin.

Hey, so any ideas on how stakes can be applied to this tournament? Maybe something cheesy like posting a silly photo of the winning couple somewhere on this site. How do people feel about sending me your photos? Then I'll post that photo at the top of this thread. Or maybe there is somewhere on this site (the LCVG home page?) where they could honor tournament winners?

 

Maybe we can use PayPal to anti-up money for the tournament so that the winner gets a gift certificate to EB? Any ideas? Any thoughts?

Let's set a regular night for Top Spin couples games. Might I suggest either Mondays or Tuesdays at 9pm EST... My wife and I played our first XBlive game against another couple online tonight. We both got so emotional during this game (that we lost), we cannot wait to play again. It is tough to get couples to play without pre-planning.

The wife and I can do Mondays at that time.

 

Sorry I had to decline your invite tonight Keith, I was in the middle of getting trounced online. Unless you post otherwise I'll look for you at 9EST tomorrow night. I'll call the club and reserve court 3 (you know, the one by the pool) for us and the ladies.

We are extremely excited about the girl on girl action.

 

Speaking of which, has anyone been able to create an even slightly attractive female player? The hairstyle selection alone destroys the look of any girl in this game. Who wants to play with a orange haired girl with zig-zags shaved into the back of her neck?

Today was not my finest hour on Live. Got shut out in two matches of Top Spin and only killed one baddie in three games of R6.

 

My team will be available for more tennis tomorrow from 6-8 EST. Post here if anyone wants some. Thanks to Keith and your wife for the games today. I will take with me the knowledge that next time I (we) can only do better...

I worked on my career mode for a bit under an hour after inviting you. I guess that means I don't show up as being available to play unless I'm in XBox Live multiplayer. That kind of stinks. Amped 2 logs you in even when you are not playing Live so I assumed Top Spin would work the same way. Till next time,

I have set up the tournament. Unfortunately, the following people could not receive invitations:

YGM, Bat Bat, Auntie Muffin, Elmo, Peench

 

Also, it seems that XSN has some sort of restriction concerning GUEST accounts, multiple live tags, etc... that I haven't quite figured out yet. This could put a damper on our tournament.
