    Hey potential opponents, I just moved to Georgia and I'm looking for people to spar with in either Street Fighter or Smash. Let me be very clear when I say I am in no way shape or form "tournament material" I'm fairly new to fighting games (3 years of trying to find a community in Jersey was a bust) and I'm looking for some cool people to spar and grow with! I'm located in Warner Robins.

    ok FR18 is only a month and a half away so online registration will end very soon. Please go to www.finalround.org to register for you entry and games today so we can start on the pools. You will not be seeded away from people you travel if you don't pre reg. The registration button is on the top right hand side of the website.

    If you haven't reserve your hotel room the FR18 discount will end when the online registration ends in 3 weeks! Look on the top left side of the website to book your room today. Rooms are going fast since it's closer to the event, so get them while they last. Not only do you get a reduced rate on the rooms under the FR group rate but your parking is also discounted. I'm also going to work on a drink discount for FR attendance at the bar. I'll have more details on that later. See you guys in a month and a half!
    (FinalRound) A staple in the Fighting Game Community!

    Are there regular, sfv tournaments in the Atlanta area that anyone knows of? Any interest in a gathering at battle and brew.. Honestly I'm just looking to learn more than compete.
