After looking through the other threads for information, I've decided to form a general thread addressing the MA fighting game scene - if only to stop others from posting new threads and such. In short, I'll probably be lifting information from the MFC's Facebook page and putting it on SRK for advertisement. Updates may include, but are not limited to, tournaments, stream links, news, etc. Hopefully, this doesn't turn out to be a bad idea.

    I’m starting a bi-weekly casuals session at my apartment, starting on September 16th. There seems to be either a dearth of Capcom players in the Pioneer Valley/Western Massachusetts, or there’s really nowhere for them to play. There’s the Quarters in Hadley, but they only have one ST cab that gets switched out occasionally for 3S or MVC2. And, that place doesn’t have a hardcore scene. So I’m creating a gathering spot for people to get games in, get better, make rivals, and build a scene. Hit me up for location details!

    I’m posting this wherever I can to get catch more eyes. If you can spread the word, please!

    Are the Noho Dojo casuals still a thing? Haven't seen any posts on their FB page in a long while.
