**EDIT: X3O is officially done with 5 dollar deal as of June 30th. ** Now this will simply be a thread to start house or other game center gatherings for newer and veteran players. If you’re crazy you can still read my post after this.

…thread. Made this thread obviously to keep X30 discussion seperate and the other MD/VA threads less confusing.
For those that don’t already know I’m trying to use X30 as a central place for offline SFIV and other fighting gamers in the DC metro area (most easily accessible to people who live off of 355 like myself). This is literally right off of a metro station so you young/poor kids who don’t have cars and live around the DC metro area can session as well. This is for those who are wondering what to do cuz 1337 player #432 won’t let them play with them or just doesn’t know where to play. No having to set up space in your house or getting people organized at someone else’s place and having to get comfortable with people. Just show up and C3 that shit and play.
We had a few tournaments run for 3rd Strike and a few other games a long time ago but it was run by Jinmaster and gang who are notorious for running disorganized events. What I most want out of this isn’t even concerning tournaments. I listen to stories of how a lot of the top players got good and it was by being able to go to a central area where they can play consistently no matter who they are or who likes them or what day it was or whatever. Most high level fighting gamers are always hated on by someone else any ways. It’s not about being liked it’s about people respecting your game. These kinds of players can just walk up and play and practice from day to day. This is kinda like a test to see if I can make a semi arcade scene out of console SFIV and other console fighting games.
This will also make it easier for people to get comfortable with each other and eventually set up more in house sessions just incase things ever get really crappy at X30. Obviously the main game we are playing now is SFIV and when more games come out that work decently on HDTV’s we’ll broaden things a bit. SFIV is dat game for now though.
**Address to X30 for the 2 people that don’t know. **
11640 Rockville Pike Rockville, MD 20852. Walk across the street from the White Flint metro station and you’re there. In a shopping center with a Papa Johns and there’s a Popeyes and Arby’s next to X30 just outside of the shopping center.
**We normally go Sun - Thur since they have a 5 dollar all day deal. Bring a Lincoln and ur in till they close. ** They have an hourly rate for Fridays/Saturdays/PC games but it’s not very recession friendly unless you sign up for their membership which is a once a year fee of 40 dollars. Then 8 dollars gets you in all day every day. Hopefully a few people may want to sign up for this just so that we can actually head up on the days where they stay open late. We can always just do house get togethers on those days though. We’ll see.
**Business hours are Mon-Thur 3PM to 10PM, Friday 3PM to 2AM, Sat 10AM-2AM, Sun 10AM-10PM. **
