    Just wanna thank all the guys here that tried to help me out and answer any questions I had, especially MP. Back in the states now and don't know when I'm going back but it'll probably be sooner than later cause of work. All I know is 6 hours on a bus and 14 hours on a plane makes me never wanna go back ever again, damn it was beyond brutal today.

    Oh I have to update my games list. Put me down for Killer Instinct and SFIV:U when it comes out. Elena is looking MARVELOUS!!! Along with all my other characters of Chun li and Rose and just maybe Poison.
    I blame... the new generation for wanting things to be easy :annoy:

    So I'm planning on going to CafeID and Con this weekend. No idea how to get there from Seoul from the bus station. Anyone possibly close that can meet up with me and guide me?
  • xero15xero15 Follow me on Twitter Joined: Posts: 4,074
    It's a long weekend and I'm wanting to play Marvel :sad: why does no one play???? I'm not sure where CafeID is so yeah I wouldn't make for a good guide. Whatever happened to that Kakao group we had?

    It's still there, but no one really talks in it.

    :lol:

    Cong is super easy to get to. I don't know about ID though.

    I was able to find ID at their old location, but it wasn't as straightforward as Cong. I couldn't find my bus back though, and wound up walking all the way to Shinchon station, which isn't a short trek, mind you.

    ID shouldn't be too far from Guro Digital Complex station though, but the weird thing is the address they post up on Facebook does not fetch results on Naver maps. If I ever find it on there, I'll post up directions. Maybe when I come back I'll do a video on getting to ID.

    Here you go guys, finally got you some directions to CafeId (This is coming from the Sadang/Gangnam/Jamsil direction on Line 2):

    Take Line 2 to Sindaebang Station (신대방역). Exit through exit 2, cross the street (If you walked toward exit 1, you went the wrong way!), and turn right. Walk until you get to Sindaebang Station Bus Stop (신대방역), and take the 6516 bus. Ride it for 4 stops and get off at Doksan 3(sam)-dong Residential Center (독산3동주민센터 정류장). Double back from the bus stop, and turn left at your first street. On the corner you should turn at, there should be an L Mart (엘 마트). Walk another block. On the corner to your right, you should see building #14. Go down into the basement, and CafeId should be there. Attatched to the building will be a drycleaner (세탁).

    I could probably get directions coming from Guro Digital complex, but strangely, this is coming from Miasamgeori on Line 4 and is asking me to transfer at Sadang instead of Dongdaemun History & Culture Park like I expect. I'll try forcing directions from Hongdae and see what it nets me.

    I could also do pictures off of Naver Maps of every key point after you get out of Sindaebang Station in lieu of the video for now if it would help.

    Ok sweet, got it from Guro via Hongdae.

    From Guro Digital Complex Station on Line 2:

    Exit through exit 1. Go to the bus stop in the street's median (Should be called Guro Digital Complex Station Transfer Center 구로디지탈단지환승센터). Take the 5621 or the Geumcheon 06 bus one stop to Doksangogae (독산고개). Cross the street, walk left, then turn right at the first street you come to. Walk straight 3.5 blocks and turn right (You should know where to turn because it's the first street you'll come to where you can only walk right.) Walk for one block, and you should see the drycleaners on your left (세탁). Just beyond that, but attached to the same building you'll see the sign that labels that building as #14. Go down into the basement and you should be at CafeId.

    Alternatively, Sindaebang is only one stop away from here on the subway, so you can go that one extra stop and take the bus the rest of the way from my directions above, or do this route).

    I'll do a video of whichever way people think would be best to come for the majority, if there's clamoring for a way from the other direction, I'll do that too.

    ID is a bitch to get to....and not very good to go play if you want AE/Marvel....If you play KOF or Tekken that's the place.

    I will probably be down to go to CONG this weekend though.

    I'm ready to be back and get some games in.

    Should have my stick fixed soon so I don't have to borrow them at Cong anymore. (Not that they aren't prepared for that :lol:)

    Oh word?

    Thanks for the tip, Manny, I'll change the OP to reflect that.

    I know for sure they'll let you run one of the consoles as AE if you ask, but if there's no player base and it's just you and your friends, might as well hang out at home, right?

    One thing that one of the players at Cong told me, and I'll tell you, is that if you double back like you're going to the subway, there is a Sauna near the subway that's pretty cheap to stay at overnight if you stay past the last train out.

    We just decided to crash at ID. Going to stay here until the morning before we headout.

    Also, change the ID section of the first post. The numbers are incorrect and it's 963-6 not 936-6.

    We had a little trouble cause the information was wrong.

    Not sure if MadKoF is the guy that runs the place or not, but he was there when I was there on Saturday and Sunday. Super nice guy. He actually drove my small party back to the train station and helped us find arcades in Korea we wanted to go to. He doesn't speak English but he used google translate on his computer to talk to us hahaha.

    If you plan to stay the night at CafeID bring a blanket and a pillow. They actually let you sleep on the couches there if there is room. (Bunks are in the back but it's right next to whoever is running the joint for the night) My friend moved one of the couches next to the heater and MadKoF actually covered him up in a blanket when he was shutting everything down for the night.

    There is also a tip jar for him that I would highly advise throwing some won in. I had a bunch of spare coins and threw some in before we left since it' literally a steal to house people in that area.

    But just to sum things up, Cong is the place you want to go to for AE. At least when we went there was a group starting to play AE. Of course people played a little bit of everything there as well.

    At CafeID it was mostly KoF and TTT2. A few other people showed up to play AE as well.

    I'd still like ID for TTT2. Tekken's probably my second best game at this point, but I haven't played a lot of TTT, so I'd love to go to class on that.

    For any of you new guys over here, be sure to bookmark this ish. when the coupon comes up on their site, download it to your phones or print out a copy and keep it with you. I suggest you do both, I had a terrible time last year trying to get 7 Elevens to accept the digital coupon from my phone. Lots of good shit you can get for a month after new year. I have been using this for the last two years, especially at the banks for exchange. (Although TBH, that old guy in the stall at Namdaemun Market gives better rates.)

    MP's pro-tip: If you're near the area, take this coupon to Seven Luck Casino at Coex (Only works if you're a foreigner, but if you're not a foreigner, you can't use the KGS coupon anyway). Go to the front desk, get a free bet coupon by presenting the coupon. Go to the blackjack tables, play one hand with basic strategy. Do well, get a little lucky, walk out with 10000KRW free. I did this last year, planning on doing it again this year.

    Rumor has it that there may be a major coming up in April in Seoul, with a $10k pot bonus for KOFXIII, and $5k pot bonus for AE.

    Don't know anything else, just that Lapchi, Air, Justin Wong, and Infiltration were talking about it on Twitter today.

    With those kind of pots, I'm sure there'd be quite a few travelers.

    Shoot, if there's no side action at the venue, I'd lug my Xbox around, maybe we could get someone to set up some salty suite action.

    According to the interview with kensouzzang on IPW, CafeID is planning a multi-game large scale tournament, but is not divulging details yet.

    Hmmmmmm...that grapevine looks pretty accurate.

    @xero15, I still need to get you on XBL. We'll do some AE training.

    If I wasn't going to be there too late to really help, I'd offer to promote a marvel tournament.

    It may even be more viable to get players from the Philippines to come, despite them still needing visas. I know Marvel's their main game.

    If you have people like Justin already coming, there may be a call to get some more Marvel players out. Maybe Chris G.
