    DnS_Faptain America and I had a blast out in Tyler. We were in awe regarding the number of people who came out to support the East Texas FGC. Team DOOM3DnSCR3WD (DnS) sincerely want to thank Mike O'hara for his leadership in putting that event together and we're sure Round 2 will be just as fun. It was a pleasure doing commentary w/ Arkanis, who is a badass dude, and look forward to doing it again if needed. A big shout out to JumpMan for winning UMVC3 and looking like a beast. Mike if your reading this, you can definitely count on me and Faptain for Round 2, also we have the following equipment to bring for use at Round 2.

    -2 Asus VH238H LED monitors
    -2 xbox 360
    -Folding table, 4 folding chairs-big enough for two consoles and monitors to be facing back 2 back. making 2 stations.
    -2 copies of UMVC3, 1 copy of SSF4, SFXT, TT2, and MK9 

    Our resources are at your disposal, Just let me know.

    Round 2 Update!

    Here's what I'm looking at presently for the Round 2 event:

    Tentative Venue: Lindale, TX Public Library (as much as I respect Mark and the crew at Geek World, that venue is too small for us)
    Date: April 6th, 2013
    Time: 11am to Midnight
    Venue Fee: $5 per person (if you bring a setup, that fee is waived)

    Will be seeking input as to what tournaments to host. Smash Bros and Project M are a given, so are Marvel and AE.

    (tentative) Streaming will be done on site again courtesy of Mattikus_gaming, with our Marvel commentators Whiskeydick and FaptainAmerica hopefully coming back!

    event page is now live for round 2: https://www.facebook.com/events/360270024082048/

    One thing of note though ... I got the release date mixed up for Injustice, so we will be substituting Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in it's place.

    All tournaments on the page are $5 entry (with the exception of any doubles or team tournaments), with 70/20/10 payout going to top 3.

    Email I just sent out to the mailing list follows ...

    Hey all,



    Just wanted to drop a reminder in about the event this weekend in Lindale. We will start taking tournament signups and venue fees at 11am on Saturday until 1:30pm, at which point signups for ALL tournaments will be closed. If you're not in line to pay at 1:30pm, you will more than likely not get to play in a tournament ... so if you are coming from out of town, make sure to arrive promptly so you can pay your venue fee and entry for any tournaments you wish to enter.



    Venue fee is $5, and if you bring a setup that fee is waived (to be clear, a setup is the following things: a monitor for a HD console and/or a complete setup with monitor/tv and a console. Tournament entries are $5 for everything except for Brawl and Project M teams, Brawl and Project M teams are $10 a team (or $5 a person).



    Here's the list of games that will have tournaments this weekend:

    Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition (XBox 360)

    Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (XBox 360)

    Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Playstation 3)

    Super Smash Bros Brawl (Nintendo Wii)

    Project M (Nintendo Wii)

    ALL tournament games (save for the winners/losers/grand finals) will be best 2 out of 3 games. The finals of each game (along with the Marvel tournament in general) will be best 3 out of 5 games.



    We will be selling candy, sodas (Dr. Pepper/Mountain Dew) and Monster Energy drinks on Saturday as well (these prices will be announced at the event). We also will be selling halves of pizza for $5.



    Payouts will be different this time, instead of 70/20/10 it will be 60/30/10.





    Hope you all can make it on Saturday!

    -- Michael O'Hara

    I've stepped away from fighters to focus on community related stuff. I run the Facebook group for the area as well, which is not very active at the moment but still gets posts now and again.

    I may come back soon for Tekken 7 and perhaps MvCI, but I have not decided yet.

    So I'm trying my hand back at the FGC, maybe I won't let travel costs get to me this time. Ha.

    Yo Mike, how's it been? I've lost contact with a lot of people, doesn't help when even Tyler is considered far by my standards ;w;

    If anyone is in the Longview area and wants to go for a few local games, I'm down for it. I can also play online at irregular times so ask for my gamer tags if you want.

    (Besides Mike, I would be extremely shocked if anyone recognizes me. Here is hoping they won't; rather be a literal nobody than be remembered as "that nobody".)
