Madison WI, Fighting Game Community

That’s fine, If you want to talk about that in person I don’t mind but I don’t intend to say anything else about it online.


#11

Also games at 5:30 tonight as always


#12

Yeah I don’t see this being much except a bump on Fridays, but maybe that could be slightly useful?

I’m sure you realize you had fault for starting that silliness too. Were any of the reactions necessary? Of course not, but sometimes stuff happens. If anyone is going out of their way to actually harass people they should be called the fuck out though. You’re never going to get everyone in a large group to get along perfectly with each other but that’s not okay.

Well, there’s not much traffic in the Milwaukee thread either. Or really just on SRK midwest boards in general. I don’t think there will be much traffic here either, but it should at least serve as a place to have easy to find information about gatherings/players for any possible new players in the area whenever that gets added to the first post


#14

My point is all info on gatherings etc could’ve been consolidated into one thread. I’d have gladly added Madison gatherings,tourneys and player info to the first post. It does suck that not everybody can get along. That’s the reality of the world tho.


#15

Yeah, we could have probably just updated the first post with more information about the Madison scene. I don’t think there’s really much of a reason for hostility between the scenes outside of a few people not getting along, but like you said that’s inevitable.

Honestly I’m indifferent to whether we have a separate thread or not, we definitely don’t have enough SRK users in our scene to generate more traffic than just sporadic posts, unless people here decide to start using SRK, which I don’t see happening. I don’t post here often because I don’t really know the few of the regular posters left from the Milwaukee scene, and don’t really have much to say really since conversations in the thread are either talking about gatherings I can’t make it to because of work, not living in the area, and not actually owning a vehicle or just people talking shit.

I’d personally like to see more crossover between the scenes, but we don’t even play the same games for the most part. We play mostly Marvel, and then shitty anime button mashers and a good bit of our scene just plays Smash. But yeah, most of our players would just rather go to Chicago to play Marvel since that’s where the competition is in the area. That’s basically it.

Having a separate thread won’t solve this, but I’d say just let it rock and see what happens. If this thread just becomes inactive and dies, welp we weren’t using the WI thread anyways so it doesn’t really matter.

i agree with matt. now i gotta check two threads to c if a tourney is happening. honestly we need more tourneys in WI. 2 in the last 5 months isnt very much. i would try host but i dont think ppl would make it out to lake geneva area. lets go WI fgc?
