    @OrochiDemon I appreciate you and anybody who has posted any of these tourneys. I'm from Dallas so I try and make it out to Austin once in a while just for these tourneys

    @Rictorxix No problem, no one else was doing it, and Im really glad after going there for a few months that tournaments are starting up again. Seems like there was a sparse period of few tournaments happening.

    This is on the previous page, but it should be mentioned more often I think for now on. The FB group is way more active than anything else. https://www.facebook.com/groups/170184739744077/ I was finally accepted into it after I switched my fb accounts, dont know why. I messaged the admins, and they never got back to me, then I changed accounts due to some stupid stuff, and then I was accepted in like an hour. So if you try to join and they arent accepting you, you can tell me.

    @OrochiDemon Could you invite me to the Austin fighters group? I might come down there in January or February if there is a tourney for 3S or ST.
    It's hard for me to make plans to attend a tourney all the way in Austin on such short notice.

    If traffic from DFW on Friday wasn't so bad, I could come to both Super Turbo and 3S tourneys every month.
    Super Turbo for this month though.

    Might as well repost this here because of how lively the commentary is as the night goes on and more and more people pass around the mics. If youve never been to UFO and live in or around Austin this is a good intro to the great community we have here. Dont forget we have a 3rd strike tournament this coming friday, then theres the salty battles on saturday.

    Heres a tournament from Friday night at Arcade UFO. :)



    FYI, I played the red Chun Li. Ive only been playing ST casually for half a year. I actually practiced with Ken and O. Ken this week, but I went with Chun Li because I was nervous. I totally break down in my second match, but I did good in my first match. Last tournament Fubarduck and I played each other first also, and I did way better this time around.

    I know @orochidemon and @rictorxix post in the 3rd section so I thought id post here to say I'll be attending the tournament this Friday.

    Flyer saids random 3on so can't choose teammates? Is it character locked?

    Also if anyone in Austin wants to do a ft10 gachi that would be fun (not money match). I can play most of the cast (no Sean, twelve, oro, remy, Elena). I'd play any of my characters for the gachi depending on if there was a specific match up someone wants to play.

    Looking forward to playing arcade 3rd for the first time since August 2012! Lol

    Edit: what is salty battles on Saturday?
    Edit2: I suppose there's still only 1 set up of the h2h for the game so doing a ft10 might be an inconvenience during peak days/hours. so while this would be fun it might not be the best idea :/

    @yuuki If it's anything like last week's ST tourney, they (arcade ufo) will select the teams based on skill level (Example: 1 noob, 1 intermediate, 1 pro) in order to avoid one team wrecking everybody. Characters won't be locked for the entire tournament so you can switch it up each round you advance.

    Hello everyone. I will probably be visiting Texas within the next few weeks. I'm actually checking it out to see if it's a place I want to move to. It's really between Dallas and Austin. What the fgc like in Austin? I know it's one of the few places with an arcade. I play a little bit of sf4, a little bit of tekken and a VERY little bit of Marvel. How often do you guys get together for games? I'll probably see you guys when I visit.

    They threw a great 3rd Strike tournament last night, and Ray's Ryu brought the hype!

    Next friday theyll be doing a ST Ratio tournament.


    Here's how ratio tournaments work! (from strevival.com)

    - You have SEVEN Ratio Points to spend when choosing your characters.
    - Characters must be chosen before the tournament begins and those characters must be used throughout the entire tournament.
    - Character order may be switched between matches.
    - The same character may be chosen multiple times but there will be a character limit of four.
    - When you run out of characters, you lose the match. Double elimination.
    - Akuma is banned.

    for the most part marvel is not played anymore. if you want to get some sessions of marvel, post up in the FB group. Something along the lines of "hey i want to play some marvel, i'm available at x time, wanna do UFO or someone's place". we CAN get it in the machines, but GG is just more popular atm.

    I'm visiting from central Illinois for the next couple of weeks. Is anybody at the arcade playing GGXrd on weeknights? If not, what's the best time to find people there?
    When in doubt, mash it out.
    When life is low, it's time to throw.
  • phantasyphantasy Smash Journeyman Joined: Posts: 8,557
    @thesquelched thursday is freeplay nights, $5 for console freeplay from 6pm-12midnight. tuesday is our ranbats, this week is ggxrd but we alternate w/ USF4 every week.

    not exactly weeknights but fri/sat are other solid times to go, sunday is decent as well.

    Next month's UFO Stream will be on New Year's Eve. There was a good turnout then both at the tournament and on stream so I expect something similar this time around.

    Thanks for everyone who has been supporting the streams.
