    Hello, my name is Chris and I am a King of Fighters player playing out of the Orlando area.
    Very recently, central Florida KoF has been struggling with attendance at events. A tournament in Altimonte was cancelled this week because we couldn't even put together an eight man bracket. Two weeks ago at TNS wasn't much better, we drew eleven.
    That got some of the locals to talking about what we might do to save this game before it disappears outright. The conclusion we came to was that we need to network a lot better. Get central Florida on the same page as north and south Florida. Be willing to travel. Basically turn the smaller local scenes into one big Florida scene.

    Most of central Florida's (at least around Orlando) communication is done through Facebook, and if that's the case here, if you could give me some names of the local KoF players I'd appreciate it greatly. If not, I will be stopping by the regional boards occasionally, more often closer to events, and I encourage you guys to do the same.

    Thank you.

    Maybe so, but until FiM comes out or Capcom miraculously puts together CvS2 HD, I don't have a game to fall back on. So I'm going to do everything I can to try to keep this game going.

    Hey guys, I am a fairly new player to umvc3 and am trying to find a local scene so I can play and get better without having to travel too far as I live in Sarasota and can't afford to travel every week to play casuals. I read there were weekly casuals at Livingston's a while back and was wondering if that was still going on.

    Perhaps 5-6 was a low number, but we get a decent amount of people coming out tues/sun.

    Yesterday we had 8 I think, all locals, sometimes Tong Lee comes through and brings some Tampa heads, also Sarasota comes up once in awhile.

    What time is a good time for Sunday at Serenity? Also what systems do you guys play AE on? Another thing , how often do you guys running tournaments there and whats that like? In Sarasota and apparently missed the bus on the Livingstons deal, this seems to be best thing that's close.

    Crazy, I actually still hang out and still game with few guys who used to KOF / Samurai Showdown hardcore at the lanes. If you were into the big games you probably knew me as OKY. Mainly played MK1-UMK3, SF's, SFvC, and the KI's competitively in there.

    Hmm sounds familiar. Did you used to play at Tampa bay center when it was still open back in the day?

    Yep religiously same games. If you were in either scene you would most likely remember me.

    I used to hang out with the Blockbuster Games crew a lot as well.
  • I$AACI$AAC did it hurt, baybee? Joined: Posts: 1,180
    Yeah I used to play damn near everything. Back in the Tampa bay center scene I was there every Sunday. I used gambit/venom back in the day. I used combo/cinder in KI, and combo in KI2. I also used and still use gambit in xvsf. I also played nfl blitz there as well.

    Doing the math here, and I just figured out something about Final Round. If my pool starts at 1 pm, I can leave Tampa at exactly 1 pm and make it just in time for my pool.
