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.

The SizzlinPapaya, The Wondermann, and Country

Got a license? This is an example of Valve games, basically it’s illegal now to have tournaments on a company’s game without a license. I’d play you on MK9 or SSF4 but that was awhile ago, traded them in for F3ar. Well other games along the way also. Have Arcana Heart 3 for psn if you care to play online. This picture is just funny. You can be that person.

yea we got a license. were you in the VA area or just talkin online about MK and all. I was planning on gettin arcana soon to check that out. I was psyched they got 3 out. i’ll hit you up when I get it.

but yeah… we had a lawyer go around with us and check on all the licensing issues that would be there and got it all handled. thanks for the thought though.

If you have Arcana Heart 3 for PSN I could play you online with that if you want. Downloaded it so can’t really trade it in. Though was pretty good with about 90% of every character in both MK9 and SF4. Just put your psn id and I’ll add you later.

word… i haven’t gotten a new one yet but i’m probably gonna start up a new psn id… mine is too plain and i wanna start from scratch on a few things. it should be a day or so. when i do that i’ll get back at ya.

Shuffled over to Atlantic North Regional board. When you have an actual event ready to go, post about it in the Tournament Events board.

I was planning on it. I was just trying to get the word out before hand so its never been heard of when I do that. Was it a proven that I posted this? My bad if it was didn’t think putting this up in a few places would hurt.

I’m definitely in there whenever you guys have a tournament ready. There’s a handful of guys in Roanoke that play that I’m sure would come support

awesome man, did you wanna hit up the facebook or either e-mail me and i’ll give you more info?
