    the only people who play marvel seriously have either moved to different cities or stopped FGs altogether. Leaving us with Will's top tier hsien-ko and dirty noodles.

    that being said i got real mahvel on my setup and maybe i'll pick up cvs2 if people wanna get in on it. but i'm less hopeful about that than tek's attempt to get people into blazblue.
    I made you a combo, but I dropped it.

    Start watching at about 10 minutes, they talk about Capcom Pro Tour "wild card" qualifiers.

    They meantion Canada Cup, which is apparently, according to them, moving to Toronto?


    Sorry I did not come this Thursday. I have a sleeping problem where I sleep in the day. I slept in again :neutral:

    I got home and tried to find it on the news. I figured it wasn't actually a thing when I couldn't find anything on it.

    Alright I have completed my first draft of the league rules. The first official season starts this Thursday. I hope to have the basics of my league app completed by then. If not we can continue to record them manually until I get something done.
    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1sUfDh-ElH4gICH-85aB9FRbNMRWWZ9Gq-5s6EThpq_Q/edit

    There was also talk about getting some Ottawa Apparel done before Toryuken. I know this isn't for everyone but if we can scrap together a simple logo I can make the shirts. I did it before for Newfoundland Fighting Jam when we traveled to Halifax for a tournament. These were the results:

    LOGO

    SHIRT

    Let me know if this is something people are interested in. I had the NFJ crew supply their own T-Shirts and then I charged $5 per shirt to add the logo.

    Edit: I also made a facebook group for the Ottawa FGC. Feel free to join if you have facebook. If not keep on coming here. It's not meant to be a replacement.

    Doesn't really matter but rasters make it easier for me to edit before i print it if required.

    Super basic web app is complete to get us started in the league. If we continue this league I will continue to make improvements to it.
    Note: If your gamer tag is missing/incorrect leave a message with what you would like it to be. Thanks.

    Spamming today, sorry.

    Never too early to plan your trip to Toryuken. Putting together a document so people for organizing rides/hotels and share the costs.

    Size 2XL for the t-shirts, please!

    I think divisions based on how much of a scrub people like me are at SF is a good idea to prevent blowups and resulting confidence meltdowns, haha.

    I would like to go to Toryuken. I assume the other Tekken players Muhammad and Amar AKA Noctis and AAK are also interested. My real name is Marc, FYI.

    I hope there is Mahvel today. Have not touched it in almost 2 weeks tho TBH.

    Hey, so I'm looking to play Tekken 7 and I know that the movement is a pretty technical part of Tekken's system. My question is: is the best use of my time currently just to practice the movement in Tekken Tag 2?
    I really want to learn Yoshimitsu, I think its a pretty safe bet that he'll be in 7 but I'm not sure. Is there anything I should be paying specific attention to if i want to learn Yoshimitsu. Or is it even worthwhile looking at older versions of a character? I don't really know how to approach this game when it comes to training.

    Not sure now to answer that, bankshotv2, and I know Tekken really well. Everything is equally important in Tekken. Any weakness can and will be exploited my your opponent. Practice everything.

    I might pass on buying MKX, at least for now. I might play it at Algonquin when I am there though, since that does not cost too much unless your name is Bruce, haha. Sorry, but I did not think about how much it was going to cost...the struggle is real and I assume MKX is $79.99 + Tax? So almost $100? I have to buy a PS4 stick soon since old sticks do not work on it, plus tournament entries for Toryuken and other events. I think I might just concentrate on getting better in Street Fighter.

    I was hype for the MKX pad more than the game itself. I asked different game stores about it and it seems like Canadian game stores are not getting the MKX pad at all.

    Any recommendations for PS4 sticks? Madcatz is going to have new PS4 sticks in stock soon according to Markman at Final Round. I want a 6-button layout pad for PS4, too. Links appreciated. Is there another thread here on shoryuken I should be asking this?

    By the way I have not touched Mahvel for almost 3 weeks. I think my enthusiasm is gone for it.

    I'll play MKX at some point for sure yeah, but I obviously gotta wait until I get some money first, then I'll get a PS4 and all that.

    It was announced that MKX was going to use the Skullgirls drivers, so you'll be able to use your PS3 stick.

    Please check https://diluvian.ca/league/ to make sure all your matches have been recorded.
    League results for March are as follows:

    Gold:
    1st iMegaBeast
    2nd Hash
    3rd Remixed
    4th andydiluvian
    5th Moe

    Silver:
    1st Julian
    2nd FamilyMan
    3rd RickyTse
    4th HundredDollarBill
    5th Karlsson95

    Bronze:
    1st Krackatoa
    2nd Nick
    3rd Hot Toy
    4th Troy

    Copper:
    1st taidai
    2nd Forrest
    3rd Benson
    4th Dagwood

    This means the following players need to play to see if they switch leagues:

    Andydiluvian vs Familyman
    HundredDollarBill vs Nick
    Forrest vs Hot Toy


    The format will be a FT3. No shows count as a loss for this game TODAY. One day only. If both players are absent than there is no change.
    Any players finishing first or last in their division are automatically bumped for season two.

    Hey guys! Do any of you have a good local co-op fps game for PS3 I could borrow for the week. Like Borderlands or something. Somehow I only have 3 ps3 games that support couch multiplayer and none of them are FPS's. :p If you don't mind bringing a copy of something tonight you would be the best!

    Edit: For the week. I get the status back next Thursday ;)

    Good games today! So when do the next batch of ranbats begin? Before Toryuken, I hope!

    If anyone wants me to teach them some Tekken, PM me. Maybe we can set something up.

    Hey does anyone know if it is even possible to buy this stick online in Canada?

    http://stores.horiusa.com/real-arcade-pro-4-kai-for-playstation-4/

    On the "Express Checkout" it only has an option for "United States" as the "Country."

    I know Madcatz is releasing PS4 sticks soon...any other options for PS4 sticks or pads?
