**REMINDER - Under all circumstances, please do NOT bring outside food and drink inside. Finish it outside the venue before you come in. One of the owners has respectfully voiced her concerns about this, so let’s try to cater to our hosts’ concerns. If I see you with outside food or drink inside the venue, I will ask you to go outside and finish whatever you’re eating or drinking. Please remind your fellow players as well. Thank you.

Please post if you intend on entering. I like to get a general headcount to get a better idea of what I’m handling.

"Please post if you intend on entering. I like to get a general headcount to get a better idea of what I’m handling."
I plan on entering, so that’s one more than the usual I guess. I’m pretty bad at this game lol, but whatever it sounds like fun. How many people usually show up to this?
edit: This is only my second offline tournament ever, so excuse me if I’m a little nervous. I even get that way sometimes when there’s nothing on the line lol.


#3

Thanks for posting. We usually get about 16-20 entrants. I understand the nervousness - I’ve had it myself - but just remember that Street Fighter is supposed to be fun. Most people are usually pretty friendly, so you should be fine.


#4

It’s my birthday on this day. If I went to it, would the DAVIS CURSE START AGAIN?!


#5

Hey everybody, I dont know anyone that plays fighting games in sacramento and i wanted to show up. I would love to play but im pretty sure I suck and would not stand a chance. Can I show up just to spectate? Thanks


#6

Sup romeo, i would like to attend this tourney so consider me an entrant.


#7

hey romeo, are you thinking about mortal kombat tournament to?


#8

If i bring a setup do i still gotta buy a drink to chill round? I’m not really gonna participate in the tourney, just wanted to help out.


#9

Have a positive attitude! It’s ok to be realistic and know your skill level, but don’t self deprecate your skills. Regarding spectating, I’ll have to get back to you because I have to talk to our hosts about that. I’m going to push for something other than a one drink minimum, so please bear with me meanwhile. Continue to check this thread… I’ll keep everyone posted.

Hey - duly noted, hope to see you there!

Hello - not currently.

Hey Chris - same as above… let me talk to the owners first. The way I see it, I’d prefer something more like a $10 ( 8 pot, 2 venue ) fee, but… I’ll see what I can do.


#10

I will glady pay for a drink or two, thanks for the reply. Now I want to play but I have no ps3 Sticks but I have 3 xbox sticks.


#11

New to SRK, but I’m glad to see there are others playing SSFV in the Sacramento Area.

Would like to compete, but I only have a fight stick for an xbox and don’t get home from work in time. I’ll keep an eye out to see if any other event comes up.

Ditto on the spectating, can I buy a drink and watch a few matches?


#12

im still deciding on attending this. on one hand, its during the three day viet new year, and i might be busy. on the other hand, me playing on vietnamese new year will grant me extra powers from the vietnamese tet gods that will allow me to rape you all. decisions, decisions…


#13

If Tinh goes, Tinh will also have said powers o_o

Welcome to SRK. Keep your eyes on the Sacramento thread herefor updates.

Regarding sticks, you’re bound to have a stick to use; people don’t usually mind lending. Regarding spectating, what you mentioned would be fine. I’ll be contacting the managers tomorrow about those conditions, so if anything changes, I’ll post things here.


#14

it’s gonna be korean new year as well lol
but the year of tiger will end noooooooooo no more tiger power


#15

hmmmmm i think i should come hmmmm ??? 50/50


#16

If you do we’re going to jump you and steal your hori RAP stick. Yeah I said it.


#17

Damn, I wish I could come this Friday, I’ll be in Tahoe for the weekend. Maybe it’s a good thing since I haven’t touched my 'Sim in a month!

I’ll be at the MvC3 tourney for sure though!


#18

I’ll drop by as soon as I can (like 6pm), I’ll buy food.


#19

Ok guys, one drink minimum is waived; entry is still $10 - only difference is the venue fee ($2). If you’re spectating, please buy something if you can.

Google is amazing; TIGER RABBIT 2011

We should RPS again for a drink :rofl:


#20

Thanks for the welcome. I’ll keep an eye out, weekends are the best for me. Really want to make it to a local comp, just to test my skills.

If I have to use someone else’s stick, they hopefully won’t mind that I sweat a lot! haha. I got a nice Mad Catz Fightstick TE round 2, but for an xbox 360 but not ps3…

Will most likely not make it to this Friday, going to gym. Someone please record and upload. If I get out of gym on time, will drop by to get drink, support vendor and watch a few matches.
