THE SOUTH WILL RISE AGAIN - The Houston Thread - Texas Showdown May 5-7, 2017

edited February 8 in Southwest
Things are changing in our city. Our player base is expanding and we have new places to play. There is a lot of talent in Houston right now and it is a good time to be a part of the scene! This thread will be for updating information about locations to play in Houston, tournament news, lessons, arranging get togethers, gaming strats, finding carpools to events outside of Houston, and other fighting game related talk. The joking and shit talk is fine as long as we maintain a focus on playing and improving. Don?t be disrespectful to other people posting as this does nothing but cause unnecessary beef and can get you banned. If you have personal beef solve it with them outside of the forums. Have fun everyone!

Weekly events:

University of Houston
Student Center

Fridays starting at 8pm

Listed below is the facebook page and irc info for all of those interested. I would recommend checking these 2 out.

    Hello my name is alex ^_^. I dont like to drive to far places but I play at Monsters whenever I can (although I have to leave by 10pm cause of stupid work). I play Dudley in street fighter. Add me on XBOX for some Dudley matches.

    But my true love right now is BlazBlue, and I have been secretly training to be the best Makoto Nanaya PLayer in the WORLD! She has the play style of Slayer and Sol if they did the fusion dance. I am realy looking forward to playing CS2, and I Hope they have Blaze in some form at EVO this year. add me on xbox for blaz matches too!

    As for MVC3 I am undecided if I will play seriously.

    My adivce on getting better:

    Play more against people that are better then you! If you beat someone more then 5 times in a row, you need to play someone else. (Unless of course you are the best and are helping out someone else that wants to get better. IN that case thank you for helping.)

    Hi, my name is Winchester. I mash a lot and get away with it quite often. I always say I'm on and off due to life and school, but that just means I'm off and I'll stop caring two weeks later. Maybe Marvel or Tag 2 might stop that habit, who knows. If you need any Sagat help or a Sagat punching bag to use in training mode, let me know. I may randomly show up at all three listed venues at their specific dates, but if you find me at Smileys or Planet Zero, I will be too intoxicated to be of any use. Admitting is always the first step to recovery :clown:

    Hello my name is Isaac. Been in the scene for a year now? You can say I main Chun-li in SSF4. You can say I am pretty good. All I can say is I am striving to get better at that poking, spacing and all around footsies. I'm most likely better than you at it! I also like to play anything else in existence except for mahvel 2, cuz mahvel 3 is coming. I enjoy Kof 2002: UM, TvC, Blazblue (the only noel in town i think....?), Super Turbo, and i'm dabbling into some Samurai Showdown. Anyway, I stay solid, and I will annoy you in-game for sure!

    Play me on Ps3.
    SSFII:HDR/ST - Chun-li
    SF3:TS - Ken, Chun-li
    SSF4 - Chun-li
    BB:CS II - Noel Vermillion

    The name's Jacob. I don't live in Houston, but my fellow Louisiana players go against you guys in tournaments every now and then so I'd like to go against you guys at least in some online matches. Gamertag's KumaOso and I play an annoying Fuerte (YMMV) and I always love a good challenge.

    I also like to play KOF 2K2 and BlazBlue a bit, but I'm still trying to find my mains. Looking into Guilty Gear as well with Bridget and Milia.
