    Quick question guys, I'm gonna be moving back to Korea later this year and this time I wanna bring my stick but will there be any issues at the airports? I doubt airport security know what arcade sticks are they'll probably think I'm some sort of terrorist or something lol.

    The event is completely free to enter. There is no venue fee as well.

    But if you're late for the event, you won't be able to enter the venue cuz its limited capacity.

    Hey, guys. I'll be spending my summer (from the end of May 'til mid-August) in Seoul. However, I don't know whether I'll be able to bring my stick. Would that be an issue if I were to visit ArcadeStream/Cong Tuh/any other console gaming center?

    Hi all. I might be visiting Korea for vacation in June. Does anyone play Marvel and/or is there a hub that would be good to visit for doing so?

    There's an insane amount of sticks. I never bring mine from home. You're all good!

    I play at Cong a lot and there's a tournament this weekend so come on by in June. There should be plenty of people ready to play you!
  • busyyuubusyyuu Joined: Posts: 14
    Hey awesome! Is the Cong in Seoul? I'll probably be visiting there the whole time, but I may only get a day to check it out. I'll be there from June 4th-11th, so is there anything going on around that time or should I just drop by on any day?

    YOOOOO WHEN'S MARVEL?!?!?!

    Dude, wish I could have gone to Korea when you were still around ^^

    Btw, I typically use a 360 pad. Would I need to bring anything to Cong or can I just presume they have stuff already there that I can use?
  • xero15xero15 Follow me on Twitter Joined: Posts: 4,069
    Take your pad just in case

    So I'll be staying in Hongdae this weekend (Fri / Sat). Hoping to finally get to visit Arcade Stream.

    Anybody going? I play GG Xrd (badly - would love some help) and was semi-decent at SSFIV, but haven't played for months.

    Hey guys. Mentioned I would be visiting Korea a while back, will be heading to Seoul in a few days now. I know people recommended that I visit The Cong for some umvc3 action. Anything special happening from June 4th-11th? Any other places one might recommend?

    No special events I know of, but I'd recommend hitting up ArcadeStream though.

    Awesome, thanks for the tip :) Any particular days/times when these places are most full? I'll probably only get one chance to visit each place (The Cong and AS) since I'll be vacationing with the wife, so I'd like to make the most of my visit if possible :)

    If anyone's around, going to try out arcadestream in the evening today, will probably try cong tomorrow.

    edit: Upon further research, so wait, is AS actually just a darts bar with occasional fighting game events? If that's the case maybe I'll try Cong today instead.

    AS has SF most days of the week, if you have Kakaotalk get at philly-one before you head out to make sure.

    RagingStormX, why does your name sound really familiar? I've been here in Korea for a few years already and I know some people on here. When I go to Osan here in November I will jump back into fighting games. Been out of it since I got to Korea due to DDR And Pump It Up hahaha.
  • SamsonSamson UNLIMITED Joined: Posts: 290
    Manny (and anyone else lurking in the area), there's a local tournament tomorrow here in Osan July 3 @ 1300 in the E Club ballroom. Did you extend in Korea?
    Relax and take notes.
  • MegamannyMegamanny Joined: Posts: 1,002
    Yeah. I extended in Korea. My follow on is to osan sometime in November (though I hear rumor that might change)

    Unfortunately I have a doctors appointment tomorrow so I'm staying in gunsan although I will be in osan on Saturday for a little bit.

    I passed word about the tournament to some buddies of mine here in Kunsan and they said they were interested so maybe they might show.

    I rarely pay attention to this thread since I'm usually too far away to go so I was unaware there was a tournament going on. But I will be at Osan in November/December for a year so I'll definitely be going more often.
