    Hey all,

    I used to have casuals every now and again with friends, which was easy since we all lived fairly close to another. We still do, but since I've moved out, it's a longer drive for me to get to our usual place. I figured I'd try hosting some casuals here, now that I've pretty much got my place set up to be liveable and if it's possible, set it up to be a weekly thing on a certain day.

    Now, I'm just checking to see if there's enough interest and work from there. My intent is to have an open place for sauga casuals for people new to the community and havent had a chance to make acquaintances with the sauga regulars. I know there are some out there who`d love to play offline but are not comfortable with or have the time to commute to A&C. Making the commute shorter would hopefully drag some of you out into the open. With that said, here are the details:

    ==============

    Where : Burnhamthorpe and Hurontario (map), 20 minute walk from SQ1 bus terminal
    When : ??? (interested parties should post on the preferred day of the week. Time would be around 6pm-12am)
    Parking: There's free parking along the curb, but there`s only a few spots depending on time of day. Also free parking in the building but you have to check-in at the entrance as a visitor.

    Setup :
    - 1 x PS3 (P4A, UMvC3, SFxT, SSF4:AE)
    - 1 x TE Stick
    - 2 x Monitors (one 55" with about a frame of input lag, one 19" with maybe the same, i don't know for sure)

    (an extra xbox setup w/ 2 sticks may be possible. Jon, if you're reading this, let me know if its cool with you since you live across the street)

    Notes:
    - My dog stays over on some days, so must not be allergic to dog hair.
    - I only have enough space to seat 6 people comfortably.
    - It's a condo unit so noise levels need to be kept in check (anything below shouting should be fine)

    ==============

    So there you have it mates. Post up what day of the week you'd prefer to come out for casuals. Add me on PSN too if you want to play some online matches. I mostly play P4A but I don't mind switching games for a couple matches if you message me in-game.
    I would be really down for AE. I could bring a copy and maybe an Xbox, and forsure a stick or two (both xbox). Also if it does end up happening if anyone is in the Cawthra and Lakeshore area I can give them a lift as well, cause I would be driving from there.

    Let me be the first to suggest possible days then: Monday, Thursday, Sunday in no particular order of preference.

    Wednesday has casuals already at A&C, Friday and Saturday are usually days people go out to enjoy the weekend, and Tuesday is meh.
    If anyone is interested for this Thursday, just drop me a ping on 416 eight three eight eight four five one.

    I have mondays off school and Sundays Im usually free after work. So I would be down for some AE from time to time on those days.

    I think Thursdays sound cool, other than the person who posted above me, I don't know a lot of folks that have Mondays off school on their schedules, Wednesdays is casuals at A&C then people could just play some more the day after if you have it on Thursday, leaving Friday, Saturday and Sunday for people to go and hang out and party, work or whatever.

    If you do need an Extra Xbox I'll gladly bring mine, I live just off of Bristol and Hurontario which is about a 10 minute bus drive from SQ1 bus terminal, so the commute from my place to yours is literately just a straight line.

    I just want more days to play some marvel, waiting only once a week for casuals is very boring, especially now that I'v converted to strictly just playing offline :^(

    so far, i got a few who msged me, all wanting to play a different game, lol. would be better if we had more people, but i guess srk isn't exactly the best place to advertise. i'll probably start a fb group and post on the a&c and ttt groups to get the word out.

    meanwhile, today is still open if people want to drop by to play for a bit; drop me a text if you're planning to come. gonna confirm with my neighbor if he's still coming so there'd be at least one other person to play against (he's only into AE)

  • JapotsJapots Joined: Posts: 144
    70 Absolute (hurontario x burnhamthorpe). Details about parking and stuff are in the huge post i have up there.

    My friend confirmed he'll bring an xbox setup (ae, two sticks) after his work (around 8)
    People are welcome to come anytime after 5, send me a text on 416 eight three eight eight four five one for the Unit #.

    So far two confirmed via text to be coming around 6.

    cant have it this sunday as i have a bachelors party to go to all weekend. maybe next week again.
    there were 4 of us yesterday, umvc on ps3, ae on xbox. not bad for a start, hoping for better turnout once interest grows.
  • SiitchSiitch You don't know me don't bro me Joined: Posts: 237
    Im down for ae from time to time if there is like an actual time when people decide to go and what not, I'm usually not on srk enough to see when someone posts a "whoever wants to come tonight". I think the FB group might be a good idea too!

    Sorry guys spam help spread the news,


    7pm Thurs will be the last team Canada Qualifiers ($25 entry) then the round robin will be right after to be on Team Canada.
    There is a possibility that there is a 2nd Team Canada if Team UK doesn't make it which 70% chance they aren't going to make it. The winner of the qualifiers will be on team Canada or may have a choice to be Captain of the 2nd team Canada. And he can select his team, but CCG will confirm this on Weds.

    Also, we will be playing a tournament 7pm for Umvc3 top 5 will be on Team Canada ($25 entry) this is an exhibition vs USA, prizes tbv.
    One last thing you do need to be registered for the event to participate.

    I hope you continue hosting these! I'm somewhat new to the scene, been to A&C like twice, but I live nearby and would be able to come with consistency. A&C is a pain for me to get to, and most of my group of AE friends don't play much anymore. I need something like this to stop from slumping my remaining skillz into oblivion :/

    So yeah, I'd be more than down. I only really play AE and I only have a stick for 360 though.

    EDIT: Although I should add that I could also be the guy to bring my Xbox with a stick if needed. Wouldn't be a problem.
  • SiitchSiitch You don't know me don't bro me Joined: Posts: 237
    Yeah if we get AE casuals going consistantly, I would be happy to bring my stick as well! Would probably even be down to play marvel, but i definitely prefer AE.

    New to the AE scene, thinking of picking up Sakura. I'd be down for Casuals, I can bring my PS3 controller as well if needed. Though, this game isn't wildly respected here, I could bring Dead or Alive 5, if anybody is interested.
  • NanhouDropsNanhouDrops Joined: Posts: 17
    I can mostly make Thursdays. Don't know if anybody lives near dundas and fifth line. If so and can drive me that'd be sweet, otherwise I'll take the bus. What's your cell again?
  • Biting DogBiting Dog Joined: Posts: 3
    I can pretty much do any weekday typically, but Wednesdays and Thursdays would be best for me.
  • JapotsJapots Joined: Posts: 144
    It's nice that there's interest. Sorry I haven't updated since last casuals. I've been meaning to create a FB group since it's easier to spread the word there than to constantly check this thread for activity. I've just been stuck with naming the group (yes, I'm that shallow).

    This week isn't the best, what with the storm, Halloween, and what-not, so maybe on the Weekend or next Wed/Thurs again. I swear I'll get the FB made this week and post the details here. In the meantime, if you want to add me on FB, I can directly msg you there when I get around to it

    free to enter? wow! has this event been okay'd by the campus? last time we had a tourney held at a campus (York U), we got kicked out by campus security.

    considering it's free entry, i imagine a lot of people would go for a shot at 100 bucks.
