    Hey guys I'm new to the site I'm in the Fayetteville area. Big SF fan
    Soon I will be trying my hand at doing custom fight sticks. I custom paint controllers. Anyone looking to play hmu. Any ST titles, guilty gear, MvC. I currently don't have my S3, it took a dump on me, in a few weeks I'll be back up.

    Howdy from Durty Durham folks!

    Since this thread is dead as hell, can anyone point me to some of these mysterious FB groups where NC folks congregate? Might be interested in getting out into the local scene (even though I'm kinda garbage but whatevs).

    Ok for those that have called the hotel to reserve the normal double bed rooms under the FR17 group rate $93(normally $120) and there are sold out so let me see if I can get some more rooms added! I TOLD Y'ALL THEY WOULD START GOING FAST! Give me some time and i'll call the hotel tomorrow morning to try and get more hotel rooms open for the FR17 group. If I can get more rooms added to the group you better reserve them when you can! We are probably going to book the whole hotel full of FR17 peeps! Also be advised that all rooms under the FR group rate will receive free wifi throughout your stay at FR17!

    "As of right now only rooms available online for the FR discounted rate are the following:"

    1 king bed = $93 per night- normally $119
    2 double bed executive floor= $119 per night- normally $150
    1 king bed executive floor= $113 per night- normally $150
    1 king junior suite= $133 per night-normally $245 ask Tray "Iceman" because this is what they tried to charge him per night without the FR group rate!"

    If I can gets some more rooms make sure you grab them at https://resweb.passkey.com/Resweb.do?mode=welcome_ei_new&eventID=10704122

    There's only 18 days until online registration is closed so you need to get that badge asap to save $10 on your badges. Register online for FINAL ROUND XVII and save $10 off the badge.

    I'm looking to see if anyone is in the Goldsboro or Mount Olive area to maybe get some one on one in online (xbox 360) or in person for mainly SF4 AE. Also if anyone knows of any upcoming tournaments in NC that would be greatly appreciated!

    Ive been gone for a little bit due to military constraints but it seems as if srk post frequency from everyone on just about every thread is down......did i miss something? 2005-2009 you could not go two minutes without activity on just about every thread. I lurked forever because I didnt need to post anything. There was so much activity my two cents was never needed!

    Arvy: heck yeah dude, we're all over UNIB right now. I'm waiting for my copy to come in.

    ribu: Probably that first one I linked, the Tierless Heroes group. About...two/three years ago I guess, those guys started up weekly tournaments at Triangle Town Center, but the venue got closed down. We still post in their group since it's the most active. Generally centered around planning sessions and Capcom games.

    Guy looking for games in Greenville/Raleigh: Seriously man, that's where the majority of the scene is. They just don't post here.

    Absolome: Asheville is pretty dry unfortunately, yeah, but there are a few players in Boone and the surrounding area. You may have to hook up with Charlotte or an out of state scene that's closer. It's kind of weird how Asheville never developed much of anything.

    Ed: Hi Ed

    Not much, have been going to school up north and traveling. Came back here for grad school. How have you been doing? James calls you Master Ed lol...

    Sweet, so NC is going hard on Uniel? I got to hang with a lot of the anime community in the North East, and their hype on the game kinda rubbed off on me lol...Definitely going to try and and make it out to stuff once I move to Gville....
