[
]Drinks (Usually bottle water and soda) are on sale in the venue, but in limited quantity. Prices may vary.
[]Arcade Wednesdays will be $0.25 per set. (varies with number of people in the venue) Winner stays on, loser waits back in line. Put your quarter up to get in line, wait your turn, and prove what you got!

San Diego, When and Where will you play? Vol.III
#2

I wish you the best with this! Go San Diego!


#3

good stuff RJT, count me in! i might bring my monitor because i’m sick of playing on people’s laggy monitors!


#4

when i host casuals sessions there on tuesday and we usuall get a huge amount of players that have become regulars plus i would like to play with you guys
but i think this might interfere with ttf and your casuals
since a lot of the sd fight scene people play at ttf on tuesdays

but i am not trying to step on no ones toes and hope you guys the best of luck and hopefully i make it out there


#5

specially since the ttf evo ranbats will happen we dont want no one to miss out on that


#6

^ no doubt, i have no intention of stealing players, i will encourage our regulars to attend yours as well, need to unite SD! the scene here is too small for what it could be! I had no idea your casuals were on tuesdays thought it was on wednesdays. if its tuesdays then perhaps we can change our dates

thanks for the support guys, and thanks for the EQ NewGen!


#7

If you need help hit me up on FB. I’ve been tryna create a scene in Mira Mesa for a while now but it’s only been me and two other people that actually play.


#8

sure thing boss, leave a comment on facebook with your srk name and ill know who you are!


#9

my bad man
i updated the site just now but yeah its been on tuesdays after evo


#10

also im the admin for teh sd fight scene page on facebook so feel free to add your self


#11

if you hosted any other day besides tuesday id go here and bring sticks (3+) and setups (2+). otherwise youll find me at TTF. Id like to play somewhere new though so please change the date!


#12

I respect your loyalty to TTF, and when I set forth to create this event, I was under the understanding that TTF was on Wednesdays. Unfortunately, a lot of things have been set in motion for Tuesdays for my planning crew and I, so I will be hard pressed to change the day of the event.

I apologize to unprotected and the TTF regulars, it was not my intention to run an overlapping event, and I will do my best to coordinate with you to spread out our tournaments, but as of right now, I am unable to change the day of the week that the casuals will be occuring on, and we will continue as planned, in hopes that many of the FGC players that don’t normally make it out to your casuals will be enticed enough to come to ours, and together we can make SD the FG scene it deserves to be. I look forward to meeting you all, and hopefully we can work something out.

-Ryan


#13

I should be able to attend the 15th is my girls birthday but if I do I can bring the following

One 23 in led
One 360 with sf4:AE (digital) 1 controller
One PS3 with skullgirls (digital) VF5 (digital) 1 controller
Street fighter vs tekken PS3 (disc)
UMVC3 (disc)

I also have a wii with ssmb and tesnoko vs capcom or what ever its called. I just dont have any gamepads for it just the wii motes.


#14

Tight, I live in Mira Mesa. I’ll be sure to stop by when u launch. I’ll bring what I can, but definitely willing to kick in some money.


#15

right on phony toast! ill add you to the list

sicckkk i look forward to meeting you! stay tuned to the fb page or the twitter too for updates!


#16

Id like to give this mira mesa meet up a try, but tuesdays, im loyal to ttf! it would be sick of the mira mesa neet ups were on mondays (nothing happens on mondays) and then tuesday for ttf (wed and thur ppl like to go up to super arcade for the runback and wnf) and fridays would be free for whatever. tournament days!


#17

good to see you’re loyal to your base! I’m sorry you wont be able to make it out, and I will take your suggestions into consideration. To be honest though, I’m locked down for this tuesday opening date, and hopefully once we have a few sessions, we can shift things over to another day of the week to not interfere with ttf. unfortunately the crew of people I am currently working with is only available to help me out on Tuesdays.

Stay tuned for more updates!


#18

I am also a TTF guy, but if you get started on a different day of the week, I will be there at some point. I can bring a 360 with AE, 3SO, HDR, and Skullgirls.
