Part of the Pacific Northwest Road to EVO 2013
Organized by Chris Anderson and GameClucks
Community: Facebook Event / Facebook Group
Saturday Slugfest is currently the Pacific Northwest’s largest monthly fighting game tournament series. It is organized by GameClucks in Lynnwood, WA (just 25m north of Seattle) and sponsored by Another Castle Video Games, NOS Energy Drink, Plantronic Gamecom, and Eightarc.
Since March of 2009, GameClucks has been involved in the FGC with events ranging from weeklies to monthlies to our region’s yearly event, Northwest Majors. Most of the region’s top players have come to GameClucks events to compete or hang out including former EVO champions such as Jason “AfroCole” Cole ('02 ST), Spark ('11 BB), and coL|Filipino Champ ('12 UMvC3).
Players of all skill levels can be found at our events and we’re very welcoming to new attendees. This is also the best way to get to know your local scene and we can easily let you know where to find casuals or tournaments near you.
Most of the online discussion for this event happens on Facebook. There you can see a list of people who have RSVPed. There are currently 63 players marked as attending with the number rising as we get closer to the event.
Notable players include: SRKUW|Darryn (top 16 Canada Cup), *Hiipower *(formerly DrDoomKills, 33rd UMvC3 EVO '12/1st UMvC3 Saturday Slugfest VII), BG|Rattana (3rd SeattleVersus EOS 2012, sponsored by Blight Gaming), *Cam *(top 8 UMvC3 NWM4/1st SCV Saturday Slugfest VII), *Finelikewine49 *(1st AE 2012 Slugfest VII/SFxT 2013 Secret Boss), *Sam B *(1st AE 2012 Best Bout Beatdown/1st KOF XIII Saturday Slugfest VIII), SRKUW|Fawwaz (1st AE 2012 SeattleVersus Pot Bonus Battles), *R_Panda *(9th VF5FS EVO '12), *STB|Shujinkydink *(2nd MK9 NWM4), *Psylence *(1st TTT2 Saturday Slugfest VII), SRKUW|Shaka (1st Saturday Slugfest VII), and more!
