    What's up, everyone? I came to the SRK forums hoping to find a community in CT to meet up and play with regularly. Right now, I play only with 2 friends... we are amateurs but I really want to work at my skills with more people, and I know I'll meet much higher level players to train with :p.

    I've only recently gotten so into fighting games. I started watching videos on youtube of high level play of pretty much everything (3rd Strike, MvC, SSF4, KoF, etc.). Soon I got to recognizing big names in the community and seeing advanced strategies at work and now I need more!

    My main concern is, where do people in CT get to play? Smiles seems like a lost cause... and now that Chinatown Fair is over with I feel like there's nowhere to go :/

    SO, I know there are CT players here, can anyone help this lost soul?

    kenst4r right now there are a couple of scattered meet ups around the state. I am trying to organize that can hopefully become a weekly staple in stratford at a venue that is right off the highway

    Kenst4r, you should come out to Gaming Etc. soon and meet everyone. I just did it myself, last week, and was glad for it. Plus, it's not even a 35 minute drive. (I'm in Bethany.)

    Smiles seems like a lost cause...

    I've been hesitant to drive an hour down there because it seems like I would be playing nothing but little kids at a birthday party or something, is that accurate? It seems like they've got a lot of good games.

    There's nothing there. They have some machines, mostly broken down. They have a SF4 machine, but it sucks. On the other hand, there are a whole bunch of us in that area. Come out sometime for some offline matches. :D

    The security in this hotel is all a joke. They were going around to peoples rooms and kicking people out of the hotel if there was any slight amount of noise coming from the room and if there was more than 4 people in a room. This hotel is a joke.

    You do? My parents house is in North Haven....

    Kenst4r-From your username it sounds like you play ST?????? (is hoping) PM me man. We should play some stuff. I'll play whatever. I'm always down to meet new people. I'm available tomorrow if you have free time.

    EDIT: Spamming aerial roundhouse with cyclops is awesome. Learning about mvc2 is so fun.

    mg131 and TommyTwoTime77 - Smiles has CvS2 (which i absolutely love btw) MvC2 and Tekken 6. They took out guilty gear and sf4... pretty crappy place now.

    The Realyst and Dont Jump - i own ssf4, mvc2 and 3, KoF 98UM and 2002UM, sf: 3rd strike, tekken 6, and a broken copy of blazblue :(.

    my friends and I would definitely love to meet up and play with all you guys. I know for a fact you'd all beat our asses haha but learning from you would be great. It seems like i'll be checking out Gaming Etc. soon. And TommyTwoTime, where in that area do you meet up?

    All my fighting game dreams are finally coming true :D

    @Kenst4r: I know that Gaming Etc usually runs casuals on Fridays. I assumed that wasn't happening this week because of ECT. Bacardi has started running local tournaments out there on weekends, too. Check in here for more information. Rumor has it that a ranbat season is in the works, given enough interest.

    As to getting bodied: that's the only way to improve. It can be frustrating at first if you're ultra-competitive, but if you take the approach of a student learning a subject that you thoroughly enjoy then you'll have a blast -- at least in my experience. I don't think I killed a single character in MvC3 or AE last week, but I still count the day as a win.

    Randomly, I was wondering if anyone in here plays AH3 or is interested in playing it. The visual style turns a lot of player off, but I think the system in incredibly deep and interesting. I have a DLC copy. Let me know and maybe I'll lug it out for casuals one week.

    Casuals on Fridays in Hartford, there's usually AH3, he has retail copy/setup. There's a few decent players there.

    God shut the fuck up you flaming http://dontevenreply.com.

    Should I sig this?

    So I just noticed the other day that Yangs commands are different in AE compared to 3S. Thoughts as to why they did this???

    I loved this.

    Also; nah, its because they wanted scrubs to be familiar with how to mash w Yang too. lol.

    I can just see it now.......... "We have to mash DF now instead of FDF? What is that all about man!? Why did the command dash come out?"

    You can add people to ignore, and that goes for everyone. Keep it reasonable guys no need to be offensive to one another over a difference of opinion regardless of the disparity in between

    Honestly; IMO in order to truly understand and respect a game as being great or whatever it truly is you have to be able to laugh at the stupid aspects of it.

    Like, you're going to tell me that SSF4 isnt stupid and hilarious sometimes? You have never lost a match due to random bullshit? You don't think yun is stupid and easy? Wesker/Wolverine are hard characters to play in MVC3? Early sentinel in mvc3 wasnt hilarious in tournaments?

    You have to be able to laugh in your life and have a little fun with what you do. I think this new shits dumb and crap but i still play it because its fun. I'm here to have fun and play video games. It seems like EVERYONE on SRK is serious business 100% of the time.

    And to be fair, it's not like I am just saying I love old games and not taking action and initiative to playing them. I sold my ps3 and bought a ps2 to begin learning Third Strike for online, mvc2 because i love it and have found a thread on here to play people, (and been watching cammy, cyclops, and sentinel vids online and reading the forums) and began learning Rose and Sagat in Alpha 2 just for the fun of it.

    He asked why does AE have different move directions than 3S, I said basically because its not 3S. Then I just laughed at the funny link, thats all.

    So if any of you guys saw a sonic hat on the stream, that was me. Also skullgirls is fun as hell. Sfxt is too. I feel like sfxt will play like a poke fighter until someone lands a hit then the cool combos begin. You can do some basic ones easy but there was a chin who was doing some insane stuff. Rarely even needed the basic launcher. I really like kind and hwoawrang. Teams is gonna start soon. Get hype. Also shoutout to merkilo for making top 16 winners.
