Sadly, the weekly events have just not been happening. I’m downgrading this to a monthly status, so it will happen on the first Sunday of every month.
For those unfamiliar with this event, it is Street Fighter 4 on the Xbox 360. I will provide controllers, but it is recommended you bring your own so you are sure yours works the way you want. It will be played on a large projector screen. That means it has some minor lag, but it’s tolerable considering how good it looks.
All characters are legal. Double elimination, each round will best best of 3 matches, each match will be best of 5 games (in other words, you need 3 KOs to win and have to do that twice). Final round will be best of 5 matches, but match size remains the same. Loser of each match may switch characters, winner must keep the same character.

So far, we’ve had David winning every tournament he participated in, but last week, I met one guy who just might have what it takes. He’s an Akuma player that definitely knows his spacing and combos. He needs some work in his defense, but otherwise makes a fine player that would make an excellent addition to our league. I never got his name. Of course, I can’t forget Nappy, Dan, the C, and Sterling, who consistently show us what real competition is about. Not that I can’t take’em, of course. Popular characters have included Ryu, Ken, Viper, Sagat, Rufus, Zangief, and Claw (though I still can’t get over the whooping I took from Dictator). It’d do my heart good to see someone take it all with a not-so-popular character like Abel, Gouken, or Gen.
You now have some time to practice up on your skills and don’t have to devote $20 per week to participate anymore. Hopefully, that means the meetings we do have will be much richer. Good luck, and I hope to see you all again.
