Sorry ahead of time if this isn’t that great of a place to post this thread, but I couldn’t think of anywhere better.
That being said, I’m a relatively new player to fighting games and the community in general. I used to be a big FPS player, and was somewhat successful there. One thing I noticed though, is that it’s quite a bit easier to get into the FPS competitive scene than the fighting game one because it’s split between online and LAN tourneys.
So my question is this, I know a lot of people that are wanting to take their SSF4 game to the next level, and you really cannot do this by playing ranked matches online(Let’s be honest, 90% of online players are scrubs that just want easy wins). So what can we, the 08-10’ers, do to get involved with the community and start building a solid base of people that we play with outside of XBL or PSN? What are the local arcades or get-togethers that the community goes to, and how does a new player go about getting to them? Who are the people that are good to know around the area? As for area, I’m talking around Western Washington, but it would be a good idea to compile a list of places a new player can go to in the generalized Northwest.
Thanks for any answers ahead of time, I appreciate the help, as I’m sure a lot of other people will!
