FIrst of all let me introduce myself. I am the manager of X3O gaming center in Rockville, MD. I have been playing fighting games since Yie Ar Kung Fu and have been a Street Fighter/Tekken fan…scratch that…fanatic since the first game came out back in the eighties.
I actually have JUST learned about the EVO2K Tournaments a few months ago. I absolutely love the idea behind EVO2K and the fact that it is REAL wih REAL players. I want to participate somehow. I know Im not good enough at the moment to actually compete in EVO, although I can hold my own, but I would like to sponsor someone to go. This would include registration fees, hotel, and airfare. Of course there would be stipulations and I would need for someone to prove that they have the skills to make it to the finals.
I am willing to consider players for any game that is hosted at the EVO2k6 tourney. Let me know what you guys think. I have PS2 versions of mostly all the games hosted at EVO2k.
I generally have a “Fight Night” on Wednesdays that people come in to compete for cash in mini tournaments ($15 entry, winner takes half, best loser gets his money back) in various fighting games including Tekken 5, Marvel vs Capcom 2, SNK vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter, etc. I actually just spoke to Jinmaster last night about putting something together (thanks man) soon. Hopefully this will work out for the best. Im excited about the possibilities and am willing to participate in the community in any way I can. Input is welcome but I need to start soon if Im going to have everything ready by August. Feel free to call, PM, email, post your opinions. Thank you all for your time.
