<b><br></b><b><u>Description</u><br>
</b>GameClucks Thursday Night Fights is a weekly event in the Seattle area. It is organized by GameClucks and is (often) held at Another Castle Video Games in Edmonds, WA (just 20m north of
Seattle) and sponsored by Another Castle Video Games, NOS Energy Drink,
Plantronic Gamecom, and Eightarc. We started out these events as just a place to meet up and get games, but have since grown to include weekly tournaments and a stream as well.<br><br><b><u>Who’s Coming?</u></b><br>Most of the discussion takes place on each week’s <a href=“http://www.facebook.com/groups/144680008921676/events/”>Facebook event page</a>. Invites are sent out to all members of the <a href=“http://www.facebook.com/groups/144680008921676/”>Northwest Street Fighter</a> group. Most players do not RSVP until the day of, but we typically have between <b>10-20</b> attendees. Every week we have 8-14 entrants for a $10 AE 2012 tournament. Our 8-man UMvC3 tournaments have been $2 entry until the scene grows. We have KOF XIII most weeks (discussion happens in <a href=“http://www.facebook.com/groups/213676815376479/”>KOF Northwest</a>) ranging from just casuals to $2 tournaments, to 8-man $5 tournaments. We recently held a 8-man $2 SFxT 2013 tournament. Finally, some players show up for P4U casuals as well. Most players do not arrive until an hour before their game starts, we highly recommend you do the same.<br><br><b><u>Community</u></b><br>You’ll find that attendees are very welcoming and we can easily give you
advice or let you know where to find games near you. Our players range
from some of the best in our region (such as <i><i>Riki-Oh</i></i>, <i>Finelikewine49</i>, and
<i>SRKUW|Fawwaz</i>) to players that are new to these games and
are looking to level up or just get casuals in.<br>

I’ll be there all evening with BotPM who’s not feeling himself after getting 3rd at the PAX tourney. Bringing the usual along with 3S OE. Definitely want to get Marvel in too.


#13

Good shit to those that came out last week. Didn’t expect that many! A few more and we could probably start running small tourneys. I’ll be there Thursday with BotPM to get more practice in before the tournament. Also have a MK guy coming with us who’s bringing a PS3 setup with the game. Don’t have any PS3 sticks, so bring 'em if you need them. Hope this’ll have the highest attendance yet!

Edit: BotPM and I will be there close to 3.

Me and Mike are going to start holding Fight Nights at AFK Tavern on Tuesday nights in order to spread out and garner more interest. If Mike doesn’t have to work tonight we should be in around 11pm.

#19

what kind of set up do they have for MVC3? im interested in going but i what to make sure they have tournament ready equipment.


#20

Xbox 360 with all the patches and DLC characters on CRTs. They have monitors as well, but my recording/streaming equipment is all SD. It’s the same equipment we use for the monthlies.

Edit: Just got word that GC is opening on time at 3. I should be in around 4:30.
Double Edit: We also have a guy bringing a PS3 now, so whatever system you prefer would work.
