Just dedicate to going, dont stay home at the last minute. Im goin to SB this year and it will be my first tournament period. Hell, it will even be the first time that my opponent in AE is right next to me. But ive already reserved my hotel room and pre registered as a competitor, so with $300+ already sunk into the trip i cant just decide not to go.
Bottomline: Make it impossible to find a reason to stay home. Thats my strategy and im hoping it works :D

As soon as you walk in, try to draw attention to yourself. Always make jokes, no matter how uncomfortable you feel. Also, use a lot of fighting game lingo, typically anything you see stream monsters say in chat rooms. Although related to the last concept, make sure you use the term "godlike" more than any other word.

I don't have one. Our arcades consist of penny pusher machines and half broken lightgun games from the early 90s.

It doesn't have to be an arcade. Local scenes happen whenever any group of people get together to play games. Check out the regional matchmaking threads and tournament section to see if there's one near you.

I'll take a look some time. Just doesn't seem to be much interest in my area at least. I thought I'd find some people at uni but the gaming society is all babby's first fps players etc
