    there's no arcade scene here (there are no real arcades here)
    also you most likely aren't gonna get a response from anyone here cuz they all decided that migrating to facebook and ignoring SRK was an awesome idea
    Which makes it hard for people like me who aren't always in Orlando to figure out whatever the heck is going on. -__-

    Hey guys, relatively new to the Orlando scene. I help coordinate the Orlando Barcraft events, and the main coordinator approached me earlier with the idea of possibly streaming one of the MLG fight streams or the NorCal Regionals during our MLG Winter Championship event (March 24-5). He asked me to poke around the local scene and see what interest there was, if any, in joining us that weekend at RG Brewskies in Altamonte Springs for food, booze, and streams of people playing video games. On the weeks we assemble at RG Brewskies, we have Starcraft on one of the four projectors with a usual turnout of 30-40. I'm told we'll have use of up to 3 projectors for the Winter Championship weekend, and depending on the interest, one of them could be a fighting stream. If you're interested in joining us, I have a survey - [URL='http://[URL='http://www.surveymonkey.com/MySurvey_Responses.aspx?sm=rjDVt3dnYaO+QlNcXVYxJ+oRZt0XsfIp1vOLddjdGSM='']http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/L7CGZMX[/URL] - to figure out what everyone wants, so we know how to approach this (disclaimer: I had to make it with a slight bias towards Starcraft, since that's the main focus of Barcrafts), and depending on the turnout for fighting at our Winter Championship event, we may be able to do more fighting stuff in the future. Again, I'm new to the Orlando scene, so if something usually happens for majors that we're encroaching on, apologies in advance - it's not our intention to steal people from another event. :/

    If you're interested in checking our what we do, check out [URL='http://[URL='http://www.facebook.com/groups/BarcraftOrlando/355787284462005/'']http://www.facebook.com/groups/BarcraftOrlando/[/URL] for details and feel free to join us next weekend at Gator's Dockside at Waterford Lakes (near UCF). We alternate between there and the aforementioned RG Brewskies. We post events in the Facebook group, on reddit (in r/orlando, r/UCF, and r/barcraft) and Team Liquid. If you have any questions, fire away here or PM me on reddit (same username as here).

    On an semi-related note, what kind of regular local events take place for fighting? I'd like to meet more people and step up my game since I'd like to start competing at some point in the future (too scrubby right now), and I feel like practicing exclusively on Live is a bad idea. I mainly play SSF4 but I also play UMvC3 and KOF 13, and plan to focus on SFxT the second UPS shows up with it.

    I'd like to know where the locals gather for fighting games as well. I haven't visited this thread in ages. Anyone playing this weekend? 3s or KOF? I'll even play Sf4

    Hey what's up guys? Just wanted to stop through and post up the info for the 2012 EVO Midwest Championships (MWC). That's right, we are an EVO qualifier this year, and are looking to make this the biggest MWC yet!

    This year's MWC will be held in Nashville, TN. Specifically at the South's premier arcade, Game Galaxy, which is owned and operated by OG tournament player and veteran game collector Jason "DreamTR" Wilson!

    All of the info on location, fees, and scheduling, is contained in the tournament thread, so I won't make this post overcrowded by including it all here:

    SRK Tournament thread - http://shoryuken.com/forum/index.ph...-june-22-24-2012-3-days-of-antioch-tn.152079/

    Be sure to RSVP at the Facebook event page - http://www.facebook.com/events/100263760101160/

    Also, follow Dream, Game Galaxy, and your Main Tournament staff on Twitter:

    Jason "DreamTR" Wilson - Twitter @DreamTR
    Richard "SlowJamzMixTape" Smith - Twitter @dbxbeat
    Chris "Negro Justice" Brown - Twitter @NegroJustice
    Brandon "GoldenOreos" Brocius - @CMK_GoldenOreos
    Jonathan "Milln" Conaway - Twitter @DPOnWakeup


    One additional note - there are some upcoming TN events in which you will have the opportunity to secure favorable seeding for MWC:

    The first is our "Games for Autism Speaks" event that is being held jointly with the Tennessee Chapter of The Modified Dolls. It will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2012, starting at 12pm. Facebook event page here - http://www.facebook.com/events/272080749529275/. Follow TN Dolls on twitter - @TNdolls

    The second is an event being organized by our good friend, OG Marvel 2 player, and the hypest commentator in the South, Jose "DGAGodlikeRushdown" Santiago! A lot of you saw and heard him do his thing at Final Round XV! You haven't seen anything till you come kick it with us in TN! "Memphis Bawse Battles" will take place on May 26th in Memphis, TN. Follow Jose on twitter - @DGAGdlkRushdown; and Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/GodlikeRushdown to stay current on his events!

    The TOP FIVE placers at these events will get byes or double byes (depending on turnout) in their respective games at MWC. So, doing well here gets you one step closer to those sought after EVO points!

    Finally guys, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE to contact the tournament staff, the arcade, post in the tournament or TN thread, send us smoke signals, carrier pigeons, etc for ANY questions you have. We are here to help and want to make this event huge as it's the last qualifier before EVO.

    Thanks guys!

    I'm sorry if this exists, but the only Orlando thread I found was a specific tournament.

    So I'm completely new to fighting games, just recently got SFxT and I want to find a good group to play with. Being Orlando, I'm pretty sure there's a group here. Anybody?

    Hello. I'm from Ocala (about an hour away), and the scene here is dead. So, I came here hoping someone would help me with SFxTK. My GT is SodaPopinski3 and I hope to play and learn from you guys sometime soon.

    The scene here is definitely not dead. There's a tournament at Family Fun Center on Friday. The dude running it is hosting at his house on Thursday.

    We're piggybacking on the Gainesville Facebook group since their scene is closest to ours. https://www.facebook.com/groups/266917783328408/

    I'm really sick of my scene in Melbourne. Anything interesting going on back in Orlando? I was a much more avid player when I was living at UCF than I am now (I feel like a recluse where I am as I don't think I get along well with the players at my local meetup).
    I'm a tryhard, big deal. I don't see why you care.

    If you think Melbourne is dead try Fort Pierce x.x can't wait to move to Orlando in a few months. I'm looking to get into UMVC3, hoping that entering tournaments could help me learn the game a little more.

    This is probably futile at this point, but is there anyone in Orlando that plays? I'm traveling out there next week for a work trip and would be available to play in the evenings. I am pretty much strictly KoF and Soul Calibur 5 at the moment.

    I think there will be casuals this Thursday. There are a few people that play KoF13, but they usually don't play SC5 there at all. If there is a gathering this Thursday, I can probably PM you the address and stuff, but I wouldn't know until like Thursday afternoon.

    Does Orlando have a regular weekly fight night or are there any weekly meet ups happening next week? I am coming down for vacation next week and would like to get games in SFIV if possible. Also I check the first post but it just has info about CEO.

    I think my Tekken Facebook group evicted me for mentioning DoA...I don't know if it was my "first offense" but I think I blew it with them regardless. Anyone around this part of the state to session some Tekken? If I'm gonna get TTT2, I'd like some real people to play with. I live in Melbourne (believe I mentioned that before).

    I'm reposting this in every Central Florida thread, most of you in Orlando already know me, but for the benefit of the ones that don't, I'm Chris, otherwise known as Canadian and I play KoF.
    Very recently, central Florida KoF has been struggling with attendance at events. A tournament in Altimonte was cancelled this week because we couldn't even put together an eight man bracket. Two weeks ago in Tampa wasn't much better, we drew eleven.
    That got some of the locals to talking about what we might do to save this game before it disappears outright. The conclusion we came to was that we need to network a lot better. Get central Florida on the same page as north and south Florida. Be willing to travel. Basically turn the smaller local scenes into one big Florida scene.

    Most of central Florida's communication is done through Facebook, and if that's the case here, if you could give me some names of the local KoF players I'd appreciate it greatly. If not, I will be stopping by the regional boards occasionally, more often closer to events, and I encourage you guys to do the same.

    Thank you.

    Hey fellas,

    Just wanted to pop in to ask a couple questions about Orlando. I'm going to be heading down there this weekend with a buddy of mine and we wanted to know:

    1. What are some good spots to eat for food (we're open to pretty much anything)?
    2. What are some good clubs to go to?

    Join the 2 Facebook groups I posted up a few posts above, that's where everyone communicates. There is something always going on, pretty much everyday, just post something up and you'll easily get some casuals going. However for the thanksgiving weekend, everyone might have gone home (most of the players are university students).

    ask to join both groups, and somebody will accept your request within the day. I don't play marvel personally but there is always something going on in orlando (nearly everyday), just post in the group asking to play casuals and tell your location, you should be able to find people near where you live. You can also attend the many tournaments in the orlando area. Just check it daily and/or post that you want to go to some meetups.
