for real


should be coming to this

dont know about nyc mb crew just yet

we’ll see

ALSO get darkstalkers up in this, fuk a3 / kof xi~


i’m there and i’m fuckin hungry for that top 5 again!


you should post current TGA rankings/point accumulations in the first post so people know who the “TGA champs” of each game are.

also after HSF2 ends I propose we swap out the board for ST WITH THE QUICKNESS and either do ST singles or ST random teams. Who wants it???

EDIT: I also agree on taking out KOF, nobody was playing it at all. Put something else in that cab, ANYTHING, and I bet more people will play it.


Chibi: We can console each other when KoreanDJ pizownors us in Melty Blood.

Get the rest of the guys to come up, I need to make up for stupidity.

Echoes of PAIN: I still have those old 3S DVDs heh, I have no idea WTF to do with them.

Also I worked out the issue with the DVR (media issues), and the new media I got has been working great. Should solve the problems you were having (as long as you don’t store them in a sandpaper sleeve).

RedBeard: I’m PMing you about something, get back at me.


2 CVS2s



Maybe I’ll practice for this one instead of saying I am and smoking/drinking practice time


i’m doing the pts as we speak, i just wanted to post up the next ranbat date so that everyone knows sooner.


Korean DJ fuck you and me up Dippy?


If NYC MB comes up that shit is free.


Rankings have been posted in the first post.

Team GTASF/Canada - Let us know what the deal is with you guys comin down, that way we can figure out housing and etc.

ST players - I really apologize for the inconvenience of no ST, I myself am in favor ST play becuz HSFII is pretty wack. But i hope you all understand that Andy did this for us; by buying this board and holding SBO quals for it he really would like to see you guys improve in that (as well as ST), but for now we would like you guys to concentrate on HSF with your full undivided attention. I’ll see what i can do about having ST in the KoFXI cab, we just need an extra B board i believe.

And a reminder, everyone check the entry fee details up in the first post; for this time only, we’re raising the flat rate to $20 instead of the usual $15. This is just to help us pay for the SBO tickets, none of the extra goes towards us, please be considerate and help support our future Tougeki EC Team! :lovin:


u would need an extra A board gavin the st software is the B board

i think u could grab it off of puzzlefighter if need be


Gavin you forgot to add the “dont get to hyped and shake the cab” rule


thank you sir

aka the walter rule




you should be banned.:annoy:


I can’t wait for the ranbat. I aim to rank in Guilty Gear again… and hopefully I won’t get my ass kicked in 3rd Strike like last time.


Having just read the Team Hate thread, if people think Melty Blood is so easy to pick up then why does anyone not put up some money on it?

From my past experience, any of the NYC players will be willing to put up any amount of money on it, from $1 to $1,000.

lol at ill_will saying he was beating the ‘MB regulars’ at TGA. That’s like finding the Loch Ness monster.


I’m up for betting on the number of Ciel’s to enter the next tournament.

And yeah, if NYC MB goes to this some MM with Team Hate and co are very much in order.



just because they think its easy to pick up doesnt mean they want to mm people

its not like theyre saying theyre beasts at it either

i mean im just saying
