EDIT: Our Ranbat website is back to being properly updated. It’s like we’re really running a tournament!
Fresno’s second ranbat series kicked off last month with quite the bang, bringing in over 20 people to a small boba shop for the sole purpose of pressing buttons with killing intent. A host of new faces, along with some old and busted ones, made the first ranbat of this season a great time. Complete with a run-in with my good friend Thunderbird, it was truly a day to not forget for at least a month or so. If you’re a Street Fighter player living in Central California, you’d be a fool to not show up.
What’s a ranbat you ask? Ranbat is shorthand for Ranking Battle, a series of tournaments in which players earn points based on their placings in each tournament. Want to prove that you’re the best in Fresno? Such a desire would raise questions about your mental health but, irrespective of your impending CVA, this is the place to prove it! Bragging rights, fight money, and perhaps even a special prize await you if you can acquire the most points this season. Simple enough, right?
