GameClucks Thursdays Night Fights
Part of the Pacific Northwest Road to Evo 2013
Organized by Chris Anderson and GameClucks
Streamed by Loz (tLozSEA)
Community: Facebook Group

Description
GameClucks Thursday Night Fights is a weekly event in the Seattle area. It is organized by GameClucks and is (often) held at Another Castle Video Games in Edmonds, WA (just 20m north of Seattle) and sponsored by Another Castle Video Games, NOS Energy Drink, Plantronic Gamecom, and Eightarc. We started out these events as just a place to meet up and get games, but have since grown to include weekly tournaments and a stream as well.

Who's Coming?
Most of the discussion takes place on each week's Facebook event page. Invites are sent out to all members of the Northwest Street Fighter group. Most players do not RSVP until the day of, but we typically have between 10-20 attendees. Every week we have 8-14 entrants for a $10 AE 2012 tournament. Our 8-man UMvC3 tournaments have been $2 entry until the scene grows. We have KOF XIII most weeks (discussion happens in KOF Northwest) ranging from just casuals to $2 tournaments, to 8-man $5 tournaments. We recently held a 8-man $2 SFxT 2013 tournament. Finally, some players show up for P4U casuals as well. Most players do not arrive until an hour before their game starts, we highly recommend you do the same.

Community
You'll find that attendees are very welcoming and we can easily give you advice or let you know where to find games near you. Our players range from some of the best in our region (such as Riki-Oh, Finelikewine49, and SRKUW|Fawwaz) to players that are new to these games and are looking to level up or just get casuals in.

    Good shit to those that came out last week. Didn't expect that many! A few more and we could probably start running small tourneys. I'll be there Thursday with BotPM to get more practice in before the tournament. Also have a MK guy coming with us who's bringing a PS3 setup with the game. Don't have any PS3 sticks, so bring 'em if you need them. Hope this'll have the highest attendance yet!

    Edit: BotPM and I will be there close to 3.

    Me and Mike are going to start holding Fight Nights at AFK Tavern on Tuesday nights in order to spread out and garner more interest. If Mike doesn't have to work tonight we should be in around 11pm.
  • Loz990Loz990 SRKUW|Loz Joined: Posts: 199
    I should be there between 3-4. Been grinding out a lot of training mode, so looking forward to some real games!

    Edit: More like 4:30.

    what kind of set up do they have for MVC3? im interested in going but i what to make sure they have tournament ready equipment.
  • Loz990Loz990 SRKUW|Loz Joined: Posts: 199
    Xbox 360 with all the patches and DLC characters on CRTs. They have monitors as well, but my recording/streaming equipment is all SD. It's the same equipment we use for the monthlies.

    Edit: Just got word that GC is opening on time at 3. I should be in around 4:30.
    Double Edit: We also have a guy bringing a PS3 now, so whatever system you prefer would work.

    I have no clue. Word has been sketchy if it's happening or not. I do know there's a tournament for AE going on at Reset Games on Sunday. If it's not to far from you, just come in Saturday regardless, sometimes people show up, just late and without notice. Our normal meets will still commence this Thursday on the 7th.

    Hope to see you there TWB. I also agree, we need more people to show up. GET THE WORD OUT PEOPLE!
  • Loz990Loz990 SRKUW|Loz Joined: Posts: 199
    There will not be a tournament this Saturday. Instead, the next GameClucks monthly will be held on November 5 at Dante's in the U District.

    I'll be in today around 3. To whoever posted earlier, Marvel always happens. It's the main game for two of us regulars.

  • CryoPlasmaCryoPlasma Joined: Posts: 7
    I think I will try to come this week really want to get some more marvel matches in before i go fail at NW Majors. would probably be around 5 or 6ish if I can get there.
  • GyaboGyabo Joined: Posts: 9

    Didn't know there was one of these going on in Lynnwood. I'd like to go but I dunno how it works. Do I have to bring my own stick? I only have a ps3 stick since I don't have a 360. Does the $3 venue fee cover the entire time span of 3-9pm?
  • Loz990Loz990 SRKUW|Loz Joined: Posts: 199
    What I have has been uploaded. Sep 29 was particularly good with Paul Lee, Riki-Oh, and Finelikewine showing up (ggs): http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL11E49F32F2FE5FE8

    Cryo, that's about when our best Marvel guy shows up too, so it's perfect.

    Gyabo, we play on 360, so don't worry about bringing your PS3 stick. As long as at least one other non-regular shows, we have enough for both an AE and Marvel setup at the same time. $3 covers it all.

    I'll be there early Thursday. Hope you both can make it.

    May be a few minutes late this Thursday, hopefully not anything to bad. Been working on some stick art too though I unfortunately won't be able to show it off yet =\
  • GyaboGyabo Joined: Posts: 9
    Oo the vids are all on youtube. I get to rewatch how free I am. XD

    I can make it again this Thursday but I might have to leave early, maybe around 6:30 - 7.

    We've been getting some questions lately and yes, you can bring in your own setups, that includes your consoles, specifically PS3s since we do not have any. The more setups that can be provided, regardless of system the better.

  • RavenOmniRavenOmni Joined: Posts: 40

    Also, starting this week we will start holding weekly Round-Robin's/Tournaments depending on who all shows up.
