I’ll be posting the actual location soon, it will most likely be at Northern Michigan University we just need to get some paperwork sorted out :P. Marquette is in the upper peninsula so i hope the drive isn’t too far for you xD.


#5

Bump, we now have information on times and location.


#6

Northern Fights will also be a Video Game Federation sanctioned event. For those not aware, the VGF is a ratings system designed to rank you to other players in the midwest! It’s for Super Street Fighter 4, so when you sign up for the tournament, you’ll have the option to sign up with the VGF ratings system. It doesn’t cost a thing, quick to do, and they’re many other good reasons to sign up. For more information, check out:

As primary spokesman for the VGF, just wanted to say hi and wish everyone the best of luck at this event. If I wasn’t running my own tourny for Tekken that weekend, I probably would have tried to make this! To add to what twintail said, the more people that sign up the more benefit for all. :slight_smile:

I check my PMs often, so if anyone has any questions, don’t be shy! Thanks!


#8

Bump due to it being this weekend Lol


#9

I had a lot of fun up there in the frozen tundra. Thanks for having me and my buds! I’ll definitely try to make it up again.

HYPER MARTH, WHY YOU SO GDLK?!


#10

Yeah man, hope to see you again. I really could use some work on that Gief matchup xD. We could always try to arrange some sort of MvC3 Mini-event but we’ll see :P.

Here is the link to Nar0th’s youtube channel, he should finish uploading pretty soon. The versions with commentary will be up later.
