New England Fighting Game Community (NEFGC) - Was MFC

Update: MFC has evolved into --- NEFGC (New England Fighting Game Community - Not Nebraska!) (... I think)
This is due to the fact that the community now has members from other states, including Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Rhode Island.

After looking through the other threads for information, I've decided to form a general thread addressing the MA NE 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 NEFGC'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 will probably update* this post later when I remember other scenes and the like. There's another Rhode Island scene that does have anime as well, but I don't have the link (sorry). Also, there's a dedicated Boston Tekken, Boston Injustice FB page - but I don't have the links at the moment, so~~

The NEFGC members are also on Discord as well! While you can find each discord in the appropriate FB link, you can request them via PM or a post here. Though... I might get back to you on time.

*Updates are rare and far between.

Either PM or post here for more information.

    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.
