The Brotherhood of Fighting: "Central VA. Showdown, The Beginning" Lynchburg, VA area tourney

We, The Brotherhood of Fighting would like to invite you to “The Central Virginia Showdown: The Beginning”

This is The Brotherhood of Fighting making their first appearance to the fighting game community of Shoryuken. If all goes as planned this will not be there last you will hear of us. Our members are the SizzlinPapaya, The Wondermann, and Country. First we will introduce ourselves then after introductions there is plenty of info, all that we have at this time, on the first tourney we are setting up in the lynchburg and roanoke virginia area.

The SizzlinPapaya is a master in training in the practice of Mortal Kombat with hopes of one day taking on the world in this artform. He has spent his life training in the dark arts with the mighty sorcerer Quan Chi. During training one night Scorpion made his way to earth realm and wreaked havoc on his home town and because of this The SizzlinPapaya is back to earth realm in hopes of one day finding redemption.

The Wondermann has been donned as the newest Avenger sent on a mission from Asgard to take on the world in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. With Thor down and Loki missing in action (thought to be working with the yeodinheim) Odin had to rely on one of Thor’s lesser known friends, The Wondermann. With the earth being in dire straights the only way to save it was take everybody on in Marvel 3. Due to this his skills are second to none and his energy is never in need of revitalization.

Country has a different calling. He is there to keep the above two member’s powers from growing out of their control. He is the brains behind the operation. While the others are the brawn. He has drawn powers from the greats such as Shang Tsung and M.O.D.O.K.

This is the first tournament we have put together but I promise you it will be a good one. There was no fighting scene in the Lynchburg, or Roanoke area so we decided to start one ourselves.

There will be tournaments in the following games:

  1. Mortal Kombat 9

  2. Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

  3. Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition

In addition to the tournament games we will have other games not strictly from the fighting genre set up for free play on a rotating basis.

There will be prizes for the top three placing participants of each tournament.

We are going to be set up with 6 47" HDTVs. Four will be used strictly for tournament play while the other two will be the free to play consoles. We are going to have 3 x box 360s and 3 Playstation 3s.
