    Thanks for coming out on Saturday, guys.

    Also, shoutouts to Brian, the guy working for the school magazine. Never played Street Fighter before, gets set up against Jimmy Bones first round.

    Everything was hype. Everything will be smoother next time. Next big event will probably be same time, same format (But more prizes) in February at Battle Royale. Headlining games are aiming to be Ultra, XRD and both of the Smash Brothers.

    I'll be awol for a bit for projects, and we'll be taking a break mid-December for Christmas.

    Thanks to everyone at the event, everyone who helped out and everyone who got us the equipment we needed. Also, thank you familyman, for sandbagging in KOF. It was the ego-boost I needed to get through the week.

    @ Krackatoa

    But the Thursday meetups are still on, right? What about around X-Mas?

    I was a bit surprised the stream had no microphone. Would have been cool to have some commentary.

    I agree, great tournament. Sorry I missed the last meetup BTW. AAK called me and said he was not going, then I was not feeling well.

    I'm going to be heading home sometime mid-December, so I'll leave the keys with Kingsley or William if you guys want. I'll have to talk to Gonq about dates, but we're probably closed closer to X-Mas.

    Looks awesome. I just hope that they don't fuck it up with over the top effects that make it impossible to see what's going on with your characters *cough*killer instinct*cough*

    I'm not playing unless Honda or Q are in it.

    And thank god I don't have to buy another stick now.

    It really does piss me off how they make all these paid versions and all these paid DLC packs and then immediately announce/release a new game. I know they gotta make money but it feels like SF4 never got a chance to settle down and be it's own thing because it was constantly changing. I'm not even gonna buy kappa Honda now because I'll never touch the game again after sf5 unless i mirror those 3s elitists and just play old games. Zzzzzzz

    I mean I'm playing it no matter what but the interesting part will be what new mechanic they put in. Hopefully no more focus attacks, maybe an updated parry system somehow? Who knows

    Woo PC master race! Although I expect everyone will be super hesitant considering the abysmal netcode that ultra on steam has. Hopefully they make it work better at the engine level.

    You're forgetting that the Xbox One has the only true competetive game (KI) on it :P
    Everyone plays that. Who plays SF or GG anyways. AH is where it's at

    I hope it has super sick training room music because that's probably the only track we'll ever hear in any tournament setting

    Announcement:

    Ottawa FGC Miracle!!

    What is happening:

    Christmas potluck for the Ottawa FGC at my house! This is happening [b]this Wednesday!!!![/b] (December 17th)in the near future (sorry for the short notice) There will be a few setups and space for people to set up.
    I'll be buying and cooking a turkey. You guys will have to coordinate together to bring the rest of the food.


    I'll probably be home all day (excluding grocery store and setup runs). I was thinking of having the dinner around 4pm. Let me know if another time works better.Earlier might work better because food will still be warm when you get here. If you guys want to get here earlier and play games/help cook that is cool too. If you don't want to make it ahead of time there will be limited shared space available in the kitchen for you guys to cook things.

    Because Carleton exams are going on right now and my roommates are all Carleton students we will have to wrap things up/relocate for 8.

    Like always bring a stick. A bunch of the consoles from Gonq are going to be here because we are updating them. I don't know if we'll have monitors or not. More information the day of. Text me for any information I missed.

    If Wednesday doesn't work for a lot of people we can just reschedule it closer to Christmas and be minus Jamel. All of you are welcome.

    Here's a list of what might make this a fun dinner:
    Sides:
    Cranberry sauce
    Stuffing (Adam is bringing a couple boxes and will attempt not to burn it)
    Mashed potatoes
    Carrots, peas, corn, squash, turnip, green beans, ect.
    Gravy
    Salad

    Drinks:
    Bring some
    (no drinking and driving:p)

    Deserts:
    Pie
    Cake
    Cookies

    If you guys want we could attempt to make gingerbread houses. :)

    I'll be putting minimal effort into updating this.

    There is still Gonq on Thursday!

    So far there are two people who want to reschedule to a later date. The difficulty with this is that Jamel will only be here for Wednesday.

    I would be open to wed (so i can get you those consoles from gonq) or friday since i don't work until late the next day.

    That being said, if it is on wednesday I'll have no time to prepare anything as I'm working all day tues and gotta take my mom xmas shopping in the morning/afternoon.

    Good cause I just read about it now, 2:01 AM on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning! I have never been to your place, Kingsley. 4 PM is really early/late for me, though. I might not be able to go just because I am such a night owl. I tend to sleep during the day.

    Maybe I can get directions when I see you this Thursday?


    In other news, here are the balance changes in the recent USF4 patch:

    http://shoryuken.com/2014/12/13/full-patch-notes-released-for-ultra-street-fighter-ivs-1-04-update/

    and a PDF of the Omega moves:

    http://www.capcom-unity.com/combofiend/go/document/download/139c60bf868500214145f210f9149572

    That Omega moves PDF is going to be very useful. Omega moves do not show up in the movelist if you pause the game.

    Gonq Holiday Meet-up
    Thursday at 5pm - 12 am +
    Student Commons, 2nd Floor above the Starbucks
    We have just the small room (as of now).

    IMPORTANT -
    I don't have keys to the office or power adapters for the XBox 360s, therefore, games will be dependent on people bringing set-ups. I also don't have access to the Benqs without Kingsley (quit dodging me).

    Thankfully, we have 1 Xbox station (thank you Joey) and a PS3 with Ultra 1.04. I WILL do everything in my power to try and patch the rest of consoles and download Elplet before Gonq starts. Please message me if you can bring a setup, live close to Gonq, or want to help. I'll bring my laptop if we don't have enough setups.

    Please, bring what you can! We're low on equipment and there's no guarantee we'll get the rest of the keys.

    Also, Jamel and James are in town. Shout outs to everyone who can make it out before we close for the holidays.
