    Ekimris lives in olympia I believe, but if yo're looking for a place on the weekends to play.......and are willing to drive to Seattle @ night......come out to TournamentWars. We have casuals running after the matches are done, and it'd be a great way to introduce yourselves to the community. Plus season 2 signups will be happening shortly. So now would be a good time to check it out :)

    Me and a few friends are starting up a fight club for SF4 we need more players! We'll hopefully start meeting up once a week during the weekends in about a month (need to find a place to host ><) if you want in give me a holler we need to get better!
    I've been waiting for someone like you. On my days off, I can help trying to find somewhere to link up. I don't have my own place, so it definitely won't be at my crib. lol.
    Bmckay. That's my dude and he's real cool. Hit him up!

    Those matches we had were fun as hell, even though you smashed me up some.

    Whoa awesome. So your in Lacey? Do you know DJ rage quit? I may have found a place I need to check out. I'd love to go up to Seattle I hate that I just moved down from Seattle to Olympia and in my time in Seattle I had no idea there was anyone! But for now I need a place locally since I don't drive I'm sure once we have some matches under our belt we'll head up for a tourney! =)

    Nah, I don't know DJRQ. I don't know many people out there. I'm not actually from Washington. Still learning the ropes.

    You don't drive? That's cool. I do. Depending on where you're talking about linking up, I wouldn't mind driving around a while to get there. And if there is a kinda big tourney up in Seattle (NOT TW!!!), I wouldn't mind bringing you up if I go. Gotta see my camp. It's been a long time. lol.
    Yeah yeah yeah! I'm in Olympia. I live on campus at Evergreen and have been dyin' to get some people around here to play with.

    I'm down for whatever, homie. Evergreen... I'm trying to remember where that is. I live Off of Rainier Rd. Just past the QFC on the corner or Rainier and Yelm Hwy.

    Not that many of the members here would know where the fuck that is.

    Eventually I want to go up to Seattle and battle the teams up there, hell eventually I want to go down to cali and kick some ass there!...But first I want to start meeting up regularly and get better, we still need more people so far we only have four the other people interested in joining are casual which is fine I just want to take us to the next level! =)

    Holy crap I think I'm like...just a few miles away, I'm living on rich road off of yelm highway. ><.

    Anyway I'm looking into different places that can host while I'm still trying to get a place for myself. You shouldn't have to worry about giving people rides anywhere, and if you do end up driving around we can get you back on gas.

    What the hell, all you Olympia people been sleeping all this time? I'm totally down to play any time plus I've got a few friends here at Evergreen who play casually (read: scrub level) but I'm sure they'd be willing to work to get better provided there be a small scene around here.

    You bring a copy for 360, and I'll fuxwitchoo. I'm terribly bad at Tekken, though. So I'm gonna pick Lars to get that top-tier boost.

    Hey hey! We found a place! Thanks to DJragequit's efforts we're allowed to play at Olympia cards and comics on Wednesdays and Thursdays this location gives us some very strict guidelines however, we need to bring our own console, controllers and tv's I've got a heavy and bulky tube tv I'll bring along with my x box 360. Also and this is more important no cussing! Olympia cards and comics tries very hard to be a family oriented place if we get allot of people shouting and a lot of hype we may have to play elsewhere but at least we can get together and do something ya know? So what time is best for you guys and your friends? We'll take any level players and if anyone at the shop wants to play they can come in. I think I'm going to try and set this up for next week and hope we have a good turn out.

    That's what's up. I don't know where it is, but I'm aiight with the restrictions. It's whatever. Let me know what I should bring and what kind of space we have/need. If we got a nice card table or some shit, I could bring my monitor, speakers, 360, stick, SFIV, HDR, and Marvel, and Blazblue.

    Dope shit, bro. Dope dope shit.


    *edit: Forgot I had Blazblue. Lmfao.

    I've been to the store a lot in the past it's a great place for all sorts of geek stuff.

    Map here

    They should have tables and chairs for us here's a list of what I can bring

    TV (non hd)
    xBox 360 (loaded with sf2HD and MvC2)
    Blazblue and SF4
    SE joystick with sanwa stick but default buttons so if you use my stick know the buttons are getting kinda worn down.
    I might be able to bring a fight pad for general use.

    We need
    Surge protector (to plug in multiple tv's and systems
    At least 1 more tv and console so we can have multiple matches going on.
    Not necessary for play but I'd really like some way to record the matches so we can observe our faults

    Gross rules but I understand where they're coming from and a place to play is a place to play.

    I'll definitely be there at least one of the nights each week. Driving to Gameworks every week is getting old and expensive. Nice work setting this up, I've got a few friends on campus here that might be interested in coming out. They're definitely on the scrub level as far as our community's level of play goes, but if they're willing to learn and get better then they will if there is a place for them to do it.

    Just post up what time it's going to be at, I know I'm open for any time.

    EDIT: I can also bring a PS3 + TV + SF4 and Tekken 6 and 1 TE stick so if someone else has a PS3 stick to bring that'd make a whole setup.

    Just a heads up Cards & Comics move to a new location earlier this year i think January, so its not the same location as has been in the past.

    Is it going to be in the evening?

    Also does it have to be SF4? Not really a fan of it, im more of ST remix. Any of you guys play that? If so let me know, i can probably do Thursdays.

    I play it (terribly), but I'm bringing it, so we can use my setup for it. It's whatever.

    We're not doing it tourney style, so I mean, one setup for SFIV, one for HDR/Marvel, MAYBE one for BB/KoFXII/whateverthefuckelse should be fine.

    Ok cool, i never played anyone HD Remix offline. I dont know if i can compete w/ you guys in SFIV haven't played it since 1 month after it came out...

    bmckay you still got that free SE joystick you got from Gamecrazy? If i remember you used Viper...
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    Well that's kinda why i want the second tv and console so we can have the side casual games but my focus is on SF4 and trying to get better truth be told I don't really have any interest in anything but SF4 and Blazblue. I've tried the 2-d street fighters and they're really not to my liking, Although sf3 seems pretty awesome. Other older 2-d fighters can be fun but not really worth the time and effort to get better at em.

    I might be able to get a fight pad for the ps3 but no joystick, while I know DJragequit has a stick for the 360 and while i don't want to speak for him he probably doesn't have any problem bringing his console so if you can provide the tv and we'd let you use our sticks/pads we'd be set, I really wish i had that mod to let my stick be used in the ps3.

    The store did move but it didn't go any farther than a crossed the street from where it used to be the google map link should be where it is currently.

    I think we're going to try for Thursday's at 3pm till whenever they kick us our or we get tired heh. I'm going over there today to discuss our setup and see what the owner has in mind for us. If you have any troubles showing up or need a ride/directions give me a pm and I'll give you my cell.

    Hope to see all you there!

    I can bring a stick its american parts though...Do you have HD remix on your PS3? I think people should try to bring extra just incase of no shows or people leaving early...

    The only game I have on my PS3 is Flower.





    Which I'm totally down to play if it comes down to it...
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,411
    Setup 1
    360, SFIV, 2 SE sticks

    Setup 2
    360, ST remix/ Mvc 2/Blazblue (we need 2 sticks)

    Setup 3
    PS3, Tekken 6/SFIV, 1 TE & 1 Happ

    aburnflags, bmckay, ekimris, djragequit, & myself. aburnflags you said you have 4 people coming, so anyone else bringing anyone? If we only have around 12 people, probably just 2 setups would work best. 1 PS3 & 1 360. That way we dont need to find 2 more sticks...What do you guys think?
  • EkimRisEkimRis Joined: Posts: 256
    I think I'm going to be bringing one extra person as well.
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    The problem with having multiple setups is the lack of tv's as it stands for this first week we may only really need two set ups, bring whatever you have we'll eventually hook it up I'm sure. By the way make sure your consoles and anything you bring is clearly marked.

    I was planning on just having setup 1 and setup 2. I have a stick and a fight pad for x360. djragequit will have a stick for x360. So we need at least one more controller for x360. If you bring a ps3 with your stick I may also be able to get a fightpad for the ps3. We'll use whatever we got i guess. As for my friends they may not show up (work and such) so at least for this first meeting it will be rather low key, but i expect in the future allot more people showing up. I'm making up flyers to post around evergreen gaming club and various shops. If anyone has experience making sweet flyers your welcome to help.

  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,411
    So is this going to happen this Thursday?

    Man i put in SFIV for the first time in a long ass time...I remember how much i dislike this game...I tried going back to ST remix & my timing for Gief got all messed up...No more SFIV for me...

    Ill be there to play the other games...

    Hahaha, yup, I think got it. I modded it with Sanwa parts (dumb colorful), though. I don't really use Viper, since I found my execution threshold rather quickly trying to do some of her more important close combos. I'm all about Dhalsim now.

    So what's the deal, any updates? Is this going to happen this Thursday? Have you guys talk to Cards & Comics?
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    Yea it's happening this Thursday 3:00pm I've talked to the owner of Olympia Cards and comics and she's given us the go ahead. So Thursday bring what you can and we'll use what we can, we really need TV's and controllers. But even if you can't bring anything we will make due with what we have. If this is successful we'll try to do this every Thursday hopefully hone our skills.

    Still working on a flyer for us, I'm fairly bad at this ><

    Dang bro-tato. I'll be at work until 7pm. I was hoping my schedule would change to something earlier, but no luck. Depending on how late it runs, I might be able to swing through or something. PM to get my number so I know what to expect.

    I'm planning on bringing my PS3 and one stick and a tv, so unless you want a setup with a pad (and I sure don't), bring that stick along.
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    A pretty good turn out, five people came rcaido's Gief destroyed us! Good showing tho guys lets try to get more people for next time too. Next meeting won't be next Thursday as that's Thanksgiving so we'll do this next on Thursday Dec 3rd keep up the practice guys this definitely helped out my game I haven't really played people off-line so it really opened my eyes to how different it is, plus I had a serious case of the jitters when i started. I'll be waiting for next time guys.

    ggs tonight. It'll be nice to get some better sticks next time.
  • rcaidorcaido Dynamic Bayside Duo Joined: Posts: 8,411
    I decided to gut my captain america stick & put it in a smaller stick case...I tried it out last night & seems to be working fine for the PS3 & 360. That was my bad i should have checked it first...

    I'll bring two stick next time that way we have 2 setups going at the same time. Im guessing you guys want Japanese sticks?

    Cards n Comics is pretty cool, despite that one random trying to munch on aburnflags chips...Anyway is nice meeting you guys we need to meet up again soon. Hopefully we get more peeps next time....bmckay where you at?

    Making cake, homie! What time did ya'll get out of there? I ask, because my schedule is 10a-7p, so most of the fun is already had by the time I get out of work, or at worst, done and gone.

    The place closes at midnight, I assume we can stay until then.

    I left a little after 8 because I had some stuff to do, but in the future I'll be sticking around longer if other people do as well.
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    Instead of starting at 3 you guys want to push it later to like around 5? I mean if BMK gets off at 7 we'll totally still be around.
