Oh hey Minnesota. If you’re free on 2/23 want to come hang out in our neck of the woods for a super sweet tournament? Check out the link in my sig.


#8564

How’s the MK9 scene in Minnesota? I went on Testyourmight.com and it looks like nobody from Minn takes MK seriously.


#8565

Johnny2D and Sultani over on TYM take the game very seriously. Somewhat surprised you missed them. We have solid Skarlet, Kung Lao, Cyrax, Mileena, and Kitana players. The regularly attending/playing guys round out with a Raiden, Kabal, Shang Tsung, Sonya, Sektor, and Kenshi.

We currently have an average, but growing, MK scene here. There are a few serious players, a couple above average, and a few guys learning the game. Monthly turn out for MK seems to waver between 7 and 16 man brackets in the past few months.

If you’re an MK guy within acceptable driving distance we’d love to see you come add to the group.

and Ermac :wink:


#8567

No Reptile or Smoke players? :badboy:


#8568

SonicBOOM (or anyone else): any idea when the next ComicCade will be?? Wrestling season is almost over and I may be able to make it out to the next one. Im about 2 hrs away in Northern Iowa lookin for mainly some high level Marvel 3. Information on gatherings will be much appreciated as well! Thanks!


#8569

Damn haha I got last in sf4, no practice for months whoops. Ninth in mvc cause my ride had to dip haha Ill be back for the next one. In the meanwhile…[media=youtube]7Dw04JVuLf0[/media]


#8570

Wait… Gill isn’t banned in the 3S tourney? I know who my new main is gonna be :wink:


#8571

We had a very solid Reptile who moved away last year. Locally we’ve never had a well developed Smoke.


#8572

Duke! I’ll keep you posted. The following month’s date is usually decided the evening of the tournament. We do our best to balance the date against other types of tournaments at the shop and national majors. I’ll have the info here as soon as possible and very glad to hear you might make it up. Good luck with the wrestling season as well, I miss my sports years greatly.


#8573

Ha! Oversight on the SRK post, but the usual Gill ban was up on Facebook. Sorry to trash your easy win hopes my man.

Why does UFGT always have to be over Memorial Day weekend? As much as I’d like to go (as I haven’t been to an out-of-state tourney in forever), I might have to pass yet again. Is there a large MN group planning to attend?


#8575

Keits plans UFGT intentionally over Memorial Day weekend each year. It makes the venue more accommodating to the tournament and does increase player attendance due to the lighter school / work / etc for most people. Definitely isn’t the best for anyone with perpetual Memorial Day family commitments, but thats just the catch 22 of such a thing.

I think a grip of MN was planning to go last it was discussed.


#8576

Anyone getting some casuals on today/tonight? I just saw Jono had canceled his. I just found out that for the first time in nearly two months that I have a Saturday available.


#8577

So apparently, I can’t delete my post…only edit it.


#8578

Any chance that anyone will be playing MvC2 or 3s at GnG on Thursday? It would be fun to mess around in one of those games again.


#8579

Registration for UFGT9 is now OPEN!

New venue, New theme, More filling!


#8580

We did a MvC2 Setup time to time.
