    I have a computer monitor i can bring w/ 360 VGA cord. Doesn't have speakers though, let me know if i should bring that too...

    If we end up playing on your monitor we'll need speakers. Also if you have a surge protector we need one since we only really have 2 sockets in the store to work with.

    Are we still starting at 3:00 tomorrow?

    I might be able to make it out for a little bit if so, but I'm absolutely swamped with end-of-the-quarter work. I'll bring my PS3, stick and TV, but like I said it won't be around for more than a couple hours.

    i'll see if i can find somekind of speaker, not sure if i have one though as i dont think i want to bring my receiver w/ my tower speakers....If someone has a spare to bring, please bring it or let me know ahead of time before this starts.

    3 360 SE sticks (djragequit, bmckay, aburnflags)
    3 Ps3 sticks (rcaido, ekimris)
    1 dual mod stick (rcaido)
    3 xbox 360 (djragequit, aburnflags, bmckay)
    1 PS3 (ekimris)

    Late response:

    Good games on Thursday night guys, I definitely saw huge improvement in Aburnflags' game.

    Hopefully I'll be able to make it next Thursday before the holiday break but we'll see what happens. I definitely saw improvement in everybody's game over the course of the night and it's only gonna get better.

    Jan 7th 2010 will be Olympia fight clubs first tournament. Double elimination best two out of three loser can change character. Starting at 8p.m at Olympia cards and comics (4230 Pacific Avenue Southeast Lacey, WA 98503-1115 | (360) 459-7721) if we get a good turnout we may have to narrow it down to single elim due to time constraints. Casuals before the tournament will start at 5p.m Come one come all!

    Just dropping in to let people know of 1 more Olympia player (and my group of 3 or so) :)

    Also, might be making the drive to Tournament Wars soon if I'm not swamped

    Last Edit: We also play over near SPSCC. Large Plasma, swearing allowed, usually too much drinking, 2 TE sticks. Just say what's up if you wanna get some practice in or just wanna mess.

    Man you guys should come down on Thursdays at Cards in Comics, we could use more people showing up...

    Also, when do you guys do your gatherings? I wouldn't mind having an extra day of fighting...Let me know when & the directions...

    Do you guys play HDR?
  • XeroxHandsXeroxHands ♫*Ahhhh* girl look at that Dudley♫ Joined: Posts: 212
    Only one guy in our group plays HDR. SF4 is actually the first fighting game I've put serious time into, so everything I know is roughly based on this system.

    Better ask aburnflags, he's the guy who organize the Fight Club in Cards & Comics.

    But i think sadly its just going to be SF4 at the moment. This is our first tournament & we are just doing this so we can attract more people to our gatherings.

    When there are more people & more demand then i dont see a problem having other games available.
  • aburnflagsaburnflags Zero counts as one Joined: Posts: 302
    Yea unfortunately none of us are any good with mvc2 tho we certainly play it on occasion when we get bored. For those at spscc you should totally show up Thursday but depending on when it is over there I'd be down to show up also if your worried about cussing apparently it's okay in moderation after 9p.m (which is why I'm starting the tourney at 8 it's late I understand but I'm guessing some cussing will be unavoidable) If my schedule permits I'd love to catch a ride up with you guys to Tournament wars I'd to organize going up as a group.

    Speaking of doing things as a group for those interested my friend is organizing a pre new years party (Jan 30th) the main event being playing a game called "UFS" or "Universal fighting system" a card game based on fighting games, him and I used to be way into it but it's totally dead now however he got a bunch of cards on the cheap and wants to do a booster draft (no fee to enter you just don't keep the cards) it's an easy game to learn for those who have no idea how to play, but outside of that he'll have a bunch of fighting games on to play between rounds not to mention his 3 full sized arcade cabinets giving us some old school fighting game flavor, if anyone's interested send me a pm and I'll let you know where it is.

    I don't know what it is about Oly Cards and Comics but damn I hate that place. I'll probably stop by some thursday to say hi and support the local "scene" or whatever, but I haven't been on good terms with the owner since Mirage was in Standard block lol

    OCC is nerd heaven, they got some amazing statues...Lots of cool stuff there. I dont see where all the hate is coming from. I think its cool of them to let us use there place to do our gatherings.

    Anyway, i sprain my left thumb...Its really hard/painful to play Street fighter. :sad: Hopefully i'll be healed up by the tournament in January.

    QFT. I know you guys haven't been out to our session yet, but it's not easy finding a place to play down south. If you haven't noticed yet there aren't a lot of players and none of them are at the level of the players up north.

    I get the feeling it's minor quibbles that are causing the hate and it would be the equivalent of hating on Best Western for charging 3 bucks instead of 2 for beers despite them giving us the place for free. Granted I've only lived down here for a few months, but I've had nothing but good experiences at OCC, it's a really great place to play despite the "family friendly" rule, but that's really nothing in the grand scheme of things. I'm sure whatever issues you have with the place or the owner are entirely your fault, because so far the staff seems pretty reasonable to me.

    Yeah maybe I'm lookin' at this too seriously, but I'm gonna defend the hell out of the only place I have to get any decent practice in without driving over an hour north to a session in Seattle.

    Rant over.

    So I hear there is a tourney comin up? If there are lots of heads (more than 10) I might pop down.....unless this is an Olympia thing.....otherwise it'd be fun to head down and meet some people not always in seattle or lynnwood....more the merrier...... more competition breeds better competition. I know mike and that's about it....

    I highly doubt there will be more than 10 heads, so I probably wouldn't head down to this one, Carlos. I'll definitely let you know what the turnout looks like so you can decide if it's worth it for the next one.

    Do you think your friends will come down? If so that's 3 right there, bmckay, aburnflags, djragequit, xeroxhands, that one guy who came by, sorry forgot your name, & myself...That makes 9, there might be some randoms too...So bokkin if you can come down & maybe bring some peeps with you, shit would be fun.

    I think the Tourney should be on the 14th though, we should have at least one more gathering so we can talk about it or set things up. I mean its going to be like 3 weeks since we seen each other when the tournament finally hits.

    I dont even know how much its going to be & anybody here know how to do brackets? Organization & first impressions are key to bringing people back for the second time. What do you guys think? Anybody who's done tournaments before give any tips/ advice?
