TOSF:HQ - GTA's Competitive Fighting Training Grounds

DarkDragonDarkDragon The MurderFace MurdererJoined: Posts: 1,367
The idea of TOSF:HQ

HQ was inspired to us by what we saw in Montreal. Individually, we are all just students, some with no jobs, some with part time jobs, but together, we were able to pool enough resources to start a place like this. Our main objective of TOSF:HQ is to have a place that is ran by the players, for the players. In addition, We also would like to provide a location that will provide training with the best of the best players in the GTA.

All donations and door entrees paid by the players will be used to cover rent and expenses that comes with having a place like this. If there is any excess money taken in, it will be used for future development such as buying streaming/recording equipments and renting out a bigger place to accommodate more players. With that being said, we would still like to stress the fact that we are a non-for profit organization. Just like MTLSF:HQ, we are doing this for the benefit of the players and future growth of TOSF.

Who:

HQ is ran by a small group of keyholders and supported by many members of the scene:

DaDesiCanadian
DarkDragon
HQ - Quan
YRSF - White_R
YRSF - Raynex
KillaCam
STC - Eric Hai
STC - Js Master
STC - Mr. Trite
Team Sp00ky - Emlarr

When:

*HOLIDAY HOURS*

Everynight we will be opened til atleast midnight if you're coming by for the holidays!

The schedule for HQ breaks down to this:

Monday 5pm
Tuesday 5pm
Wednesday 5pm
Thursday 5pm
Friday 5pm
Saturday 5pm
Sunday 5pm

HQ is usually open everyday. If you would like to attend HQ on any given day and are curious of the attendance of that day please leave a post in this thread.

Where:
Please be advised that the location is at a storage facility:

375 Middlefield Road (Finch and Middlefield) This is a storage Unit

** Please note: If you use the parking behind HQ, please DO NOT block the two doors located on the right side of the parking. They belong to another unit holder that is very active and needs to be able to access those doors.

Directions:

By Bus; take 130 from Scarborough Town Centre and get off the 4nd stop after you pass Middlefield road. (Approximately 7-10 Minutes) Or take any 129 McCowan North buses and get off at Middlefield road. And it's a 5 minute walk from there.
*** Once you reach the gate, please txt DarkDragon for the passcode to gain access.***

Contacts:

Please check out our website at:

Dark Dragon - 647 887 4972


You can also reach us on MIRC. If you're not familiar with how that program works, you can access the chat room through a web based client called Mibbit. Simply head over to GTASF and or TOSFHQ ON EFNET (please take a second to bookmark it). On the dropdown menu you'll put in EFNET. You put in your username (no longer than 9 character) and put in "#gtasf" or "tosfhq" for the channel. After that you'll be able to access the chat. It's a great way to co-ordinate casual games online/offline and many players will attest it's a hilarious way to spend time as well.

Why:

To provide a fiercely competitive environment to level up the community; allowing every player that comes in to receive tips/advice from some of the best players in Toronto if not Canada. Moreover, our goal is to pull the community together. The best, and fastest way to improve is to have everyone train together. There will be no isolations, no personal hate; just a chill environment to play SF.

Though we do stress the competitive aspect of HQ, it is also a great spot for casual players and people who don't even play fighting games at all. Drop by, have a beer, play some casual games and relax.

Platforms:

3-5 XBOX 360s
1 multi platform system (runs NES, SNES and SEGA games)
1 Gamecube
1 Dreamcast
1 N64

We have an assortment of TEs, horis/HRAPS, pads and a ps2 converter if needed.

Games:

We currently have all new games on hand as well as the older games:

SSFIV: AE
MVC3
KOF:13
MK9
Tekken 6
3s
MVC2
CFJ
Alpha Generations
ST
And more..

Price:

Just a friendly reminder, please do not show up to HQ with no money for your entry fee. No one is responsible for your door entry but yourself. This is a non-profit project. All the money gained goes towards maintaining and improving HQ.

-Single Entry $5
-6-Entry package $20
-14-Entry package $40

*SPECIAL EVENTS*

Random Tournaments:

At any day we may run small tournaments for the more popular games depending on the turnout. Entry for these tournaments are usually $2-3 depending on the prize we're able to to scrounge up. We recently gave away a copy of the MVC3 Brady Games Guide, free snacks and HQ entries.
We will be looking to put up more SF related prizes.

Level up Mondays

This is pretty much an adaption of what JS and Ehai were holding in the past. Players who would like to gain more insight on their own game and receive constructive criticism and tips. For the now the game will be MVC3. We will have guest trainers we will come everyy so often to help out with other games such as SSFIV: AE, SF3: 3rd Strike and Mortal Kombat 9 and Tekken. The price for lvl up mondays is $10
The format will follow the old STC Level up format:

1-3pm will be casuals where the trainers point out current and potential weaknesses and take notes of how to improve your game while we play.

3-4pm will be training mode session where strategy and combos come into play. There will also be discussions on dealing with stress/pressure/etc...

4-5pm will be a mini tournaments amongst yourselves. This will be the last thing in every training session. Players will test their progress by playing each other in a tournament. You guys can decide if you wanna do it for money or not.

Trainers:

HQ - White_R
HQ - Quan

BBQs

We will be organizing a few bbqs over the summer. The price and Times are TBD. This will be updated ASAP. Expect MEAT, BEER and possible streaming events.

This will be the official training grounds of Team STC and many other top players in the scene such as JS Master, White_R, Spiral guy and Mr. Trite. What better way to get better then training with the best? Please keep checking this thread, as we will have specials on certain nights, and we are opening up possibility to run theme nights such as 3rd strike and MvC2 depending on player's interests.

*Special thanks*

A special shoutout goes out to those the helped HQ get on its feet and make it out so far:

Omega_Orochi423 and Omega Collectables
Jamin - stick innovator
ALLCAPS - HQ donator
PsychoChronic - HQ donator
Blitzman - HQ donator

    To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity. The easy way is also the right way, and martial arts is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.

    Mainly to organize everything into one cohesive first post, and to make it easier for people to read through to see when it's open.

    Weird question. Bit old school player from the HD Turbo days of arcade glory. Feeling nostalgic and picked up fighting games again. Wouldn't mind checking out the local talents, but I get the impression I am a tad old for some venues. Don't want to drop by and y'all looking at my 30 years old self and feeling like I should be kicked out. What is the feeling regarding the age of players around here?

    pedophile status? I'm pretty sure the gaming scene has also matured somewhat, so I doubt you'll feel out of place. You also wont be the oldest player around. But if you are, I'll be happy :)

    edit: What were the results from the Random Select Tourney on Thursday?

    Don't worry, I don't have plans to relinquish my Senior Citizen title any time soon, I've still got a few years on you. Age is all a state of mind. :)
