Vancouver Thread *Since old one has drastically collapsed*

SleepyHeadSleepyHead Joined: Posts: 6
Just in case, any mods delete if you don't want this up because of the recent happenings of the old thread, but I want to post something on behalf of the Vancouver's community. I am new here and I noticed two things: 1. Vancouver has a rich background in fighting games and as well as many gamers all over the Lower Mainland. 2. There is no formal meet ups anymore for small tourneys and/or even just casual gameplay and chat. I really want that to happen now since the Canadian Cup is well coming our way.

Like I know about the Vancouver Street Fighter Group on Facebook, but I want something routinely scheduled, like no random posts asking "espot?" or "vsb?" then just leaving the post from there. Like sure I don't know if people that said "yeaaaah" actually go, but I can only assume right? I don't know, but who am I to say the least, I'm just a newcomer. Sorry if I offended anyone with my small critique, but that's what I'm getting from my first impressions of the Vancouver scene :(

    I love how espot just went all cheap on them forcing the tourneys/meetups there to halt. Hopefully there will be something regular on the weekends. Fingers crossed!~

    Do any of the dudes from the Lester's/Movieland days still post around here? I wouldn't mind playing some 3S again sometime if people are down.

    The good days for me was hanging out at Pat's place for 12+ hours at a time with dude's like Yummy and Dan, getting my ass handed to me for hours on end and making good friends.

    Going to eSpot and CHQ for hours and laughing it up with guys while constantly digging for some wins.

    A mongoloid destroyed this thread and this scene for me. With that said, I've recently found HDR and it's an amazing game to play.

    I'd like to see the Vancouver scene expand as well. I'm from Pitt Meadows but I'd still be down to go to a weekly meet-up if there is one that starts up or something.

    Just wondering, what are the venues like in Vancouver/Lower mainland.

    Thanks man, and here I though Vancouver's scene was really small XD. Good to know that there are people out there, hopefully we can make it bigger.

    So is there any reason to check out MovieLand Arcade? I'm staying in Vancouver this coming week for a conference and was hoping I could find somewhere to get games in.

    I've already posted in the tournament/events board, but for all my lower mainland homies:
    Wednesday Night Fights at Play N Trade Abbotsford!

    I am super excited that this is a thing. Apparently it's been going on for about a year now but a lot of the non-Smash players cleared out, so I'm trying my hardest to get people interested again. Having a free venue to play at is great.

    Every week I'm bringing the arcade sticks, the PS3, we got four monitors free for not-Smash, and I am repping every game under the sun. We have some proficient BlazBlue players showing up regularly, and I play USF4, I casually play Skullgirls, Darkstalkers, Super Turbo, 3S and MK9, and I just started learning learning GGXrd, BlazBlue, P4A and Tekken Tag Tournament. Aside from that I am down for anything. I'm even trying to gauge interest in getting some Gundam EXVS/Other multi-monitor fighters going on.

    I was hesitant to make a thread specifically for the Fraser Valley, so hopefully this gets the word out.

    Wednesday Night Fights is HAPPENING! Competition for KI, MK9, BBCP, P4A, and 3S is HOT! We also support any other game you might be into.

    Also repping Vancouver Street Battle!!
