    We have a very active scene with a high skill level overall. It's hard to determine which players are "well-known" but I know for sure we have at least 5 or 6 players in each fighting game that can compete at the highest tournament level. Let me know when you move to Seattle and I'll PM you the tournament event pages so you can check out the scene.

    Is there anything going on at Gameclucks tomorrow? And I have a PS3, not a 360, does GC have 360 sticks that I could use?
  • Riki-ohRiki-oh aka Emanuel Joined: Posts: 1,638
    Last week was a casual night but we should be running a tournament at Gameclucks this Thursday. They have extra arcade sticks for the 360 you can use.

    Here's the event page:
    Thursday Night Fights

    Seattle has zero fighting game scene. Ive asked time n time again and get invited to some meet in Olympia, to get approval to a arcade garage. Who wants 2 throw some casuals in King Co that actually knows how to play?

    axor you're talking about rcaido?
  • Riki-ohRiki-oh aka Emanuel Joined: Posts: 1,638
    LOL yo ax0r when is the last time you came to a session or a tournament in Seattle? Both North and South of Seattle has strong players and host large tournaments. We definitely have a scene. However, I cant speak for Olympia as I haven't heard anything from their scene in a while.

    I havnt checked the FB because i dont have one, i guess alot of communities use it now over SRK ?? I never meant to say that Seattle had no skill, but on SRK it seems like the community is dead. I dont know who RCaido is i guess the dude that runs the spot in Olympia? Not dissing the man in any way, just simply not down to drive to Olympia and run that mission.

    Can you guys PM me, or reach me on IG to see how I can get in on some games.


    i play A3, ST, 3S, I can throw down in CVS2 and 4 as well. used to play alot in South FL

    Also, the majority of scenes around America use Facebook or twitter instead of SRK or any of those other sites.
  • Riki-ohRiki-oh aka Emanuel Joined: Posts: 1,638
    The sad truth is that a lot of people have moved away from using SRK for FGC organizing. I wish everyone would try to keep the forums going but what can you do. Yugo posted links to all the relevant NW FGC pages on Facebook so that's a good start for anyone interested in trying to attend events or attend sessions.

    My biggest recommendation for anyone trying to get involved in the FGC is attend monthly events like Portland's Rose City Rumble, Vancouver's Vancouver Street Battle or Washington's Battleground monthlies. All of the best players from those areas will be in attendance, and it'll give you a chance to get to know everyone and practice your fighting game of choice.

    This is more for very casual & hangout with the Olympia/LaceyThurston County FGC. If you want to go to a business location, there is also Gamestar weekly. They have them on Thursday & now Tuesday. You bring your setup & play...Best thing is its free & lot more room. http://www.gamestarinc.net/Lacey Just ask for Chad.
