    I don't want to pirate would rather just buy. If you know anyone selling early, let me know PM! Don't mind paying extra.

    I've never found (or even heard of) games being sold early in Chicago like they are in NYC/CA, unless Target or Wal-Mart accidentally puts it on their shelves.

    It is and it isn't. It is if you don't follow it and SRK is gospel for you, and it isn't if you're on it and follow stuff. It's a lot more efficient with organizing and contacting people, but there's always a little trouble when moving from one end to another. To say it's killing fg scenes is hyperbolic. There's pros and cons to both.

    Hey guys, getting back into fighting games and into the community for the first time. Currently trying to pick up MVC3. If any PSN players out there are willing to mentor me that would be epic. In the meanwhile, I'll be trying to come out and get involved and help where I can even though I'm still a newb right now.

    Also...wtf is up with these floods?

    GGs last night, Hero thanks for the SFxTK tips...after a bit more practice I've ended up mapping my last 2 buttons to lp/mk to cut down on Ivory Cutter drops, it's helping out a bit.

    How's it hangin' everyone? I'm a Ryu player from So Cal and I'm looking to room with people at UFGT 9 this year. I'm serious about competing and would love to see the city.

    I know it's so random, but the friend I was going with had to cancel last minute -.-.

    It was suggested I try posting on this thread for help. Please let me know asap if any of you or anyone you know is interested in rooming. Thank you very much I appreciate it!

    Chicago had 20 people in top 8 of main tournaments this weekend. And numerous others that were top 32-top 16. Very well done to everyone, we put up a far better showing this year compared to other years. Let's keep it going for next year!

    Hey there people that read this thread. Something cool happening tomorrow (7/8) at ignite:
    GM6NK82.jpg
    Here’s how it works: Starting at 8PM players can challenge one another to a 2/3 (3/5 for MvC3) match in ANY game. If you win you’ll get a raffle ticket for a chance to win some Ignite gift cards or for something free at the cafe. If you win TWO raffle tickets, then the ONLY way to get more is to Raffle Match, where you challenge another player who already has at least one ticket, and each person puts a ticket on the line. Make sense? Hope so.

    Evo TOO CLOSE
