    It really did start in this thread. I never realized back in 2011 that posting in this thread would introduce me to the best crew of all time.

    If Snake Eyez is cool, ask him how to beat Gieft after the match. Use this to your advantage!

    We can always bring a PS2 setup at that game place on 56th street in Tacoma, or we can bring it to Dorky's (they have some CRT TVs)

    I moved to Texas unfortunately.

    Still, did you ever play CvS2 at the Olympia Tilt, or Gametrax at South Hill? I played heavily at both spots from 2003-2008, MvC2, CvS2 and 3S.

    Nah, I played CVS2 at a Mindboggle and at a Fun Fun Fun in Fayetteville, NC. and at SVGL, MGL, and Scandia (Rohnert Park), and at Hawaiian Brian's Billiard and Fun Factory on Oahu between 2000 and 2008...

    Money is the reason, really. Real life responsibilities are no joke, it sucks. And man, I do miss me some offline 3S! I play on XBL but it's not the same.

    Anyone still around in Olympia? I moved out here for the summer since my dad got a new job, and I'm basically spending all of my larger breaks from college over here. Wondering if any local events are still going on. Or at least a way to play some games offline.

    I play/can play SF, UMvC3, BBCP, KoFXIII, P4A, whatever. I'm not really any good but I'm trying to get a little better in Street Fighter, mostly. Haven't had a chance to touch Ultra since I mainly play on PC now.

    I don't live in Olympia anymore, but I can tell you that people do still play there quite frequently. A few things are going on right now, though.

    1.) a lot of the crew is at Evo and probably won't see this

    2.) a lot of the crew doesn't do SRK anymore, they have a Facebook group called "Olympia Mother Russia", it should pop up easily in search

    3.) from what I understand, the place that hosts the Thursday gatherings (Olympic Cards & Comics) is being remodeled currently and the gatherings are at somebody's house. There are also gatherings hosted by @rcaido every other Friday, if you introduce yourself and ask real nice you can probably attend one of those.

    Vilmon, aka Ryan and @aburnflags‌ here at SRK, he's the main guy at organizing the FGC in Olympia. He is the best person to contact, and he will take care of you.

    I've been a part of more than a few FGC scenes in the last 11 years, and I can say honestly that Olympia is by far the coolest. These are great guys.

    Hope this helps

    We'll be having casual sessions at Olympic Cards and Comics this Thursday from 7 to midnight! There's no venue fee, but the only drawback is to keep your language in check since the store is pretty family friendly. We will most likely be upstairs.

    Also, this is the only picture from EVO that matters.

    I went to the European room and beat quite a few players but I honestly couldnt tell who was actually from Europe or not lol. I also beat Mabusin from Japan in my pool, so I'm pretty proud! I also played alot of Japanese Kokonoe's in casuals and did pretty decently!! I had so much fun at EVO this year, and I'm really happy that I ended up picking up Blazblue!! I don't think I could have realized how fun fighting games could be until BBCP released.

    Gamebreakerz up in Auburn hosts tournaments at the end of every month! We also have "Battle For Seattle" up in Gamebreakerz at the start of every month too. Depends on which is more convenient for your schedule.

    Feel free to stop by the comic shop. I'm sure that we'd be down to play some old games with you. Hell, we've consistently had a Guilty Gear setup every week since I returned from EVO.

    Also, I'll be heading to Norcal Dogfight this Thursday with some of the top anime guys up north. Hopefully, I can pretend that I'm a top player too lmao. I think I'll be staying at DacidBro's house if I remember right.

    Also, Drew, have you played Under Night In Birth yet? This game is secretly the best game out right now. It's like playing a slightly more anime Street Fighter game. It really rewards footsies, smart meter management, and good blocking. I've never played anything like it before haha. I'm amazed at how well it's surviving after P4AU released. It's consistently getting the 2nd most entrants at PNW events. I'm also consistently top seed for the UNIEL GBZ tournaments here so I'm probably a little bias lol.

    Yes we still play at OCC on Thursdays, USF4, GG, P4U, and UMVC3 are the games that are being played right now. As for your mas sticks if you can bring one my brother and I can look at it and try to help you out. Also what is wrong with it them anyway?

    I still haven't played CvS2 at Gabi's yet with anybody if that makes you feel better lol.

    Every week there's always 2 setups min. 1 setup for USF4, and the other for Arcsys games. Marvel occasionally takes up a 3rd spot. We have yet to setup CvS2 on either, but all I know is that I'm supposed to pick Sakura bc you said so, Drew.

    If it's lag. It could be a number of things. It could be your tv/monitor you play on, if you are using a converter it could be that, something could be wrong with the PCB, parts becoming old/sticky/ect..., but what i really think is if your playing CvS2 on the PS3. Then that could be the real problem. CvS2 on the PS3 port was really bad and it had input lag. That could be whats going on. Your stick could be fine, but a bad port of the game could be your answer. The only way to fix that is to play CvS2 on a PS2 or a dreamcast.

    Yeah, or he could ask @rcaido to put CvS2 in his candy cab at Mother Russia and get the invite. If Ryan still has that game I know he'll be down to install it and play for a night, he seems to like it. Playing on an actual cab blows even the PS2 and Dreamcast versions away.
