Heroes World December Schedule!

December Schedule:

Wednesday Casuals 2pm to 9pm
(Includes December 1st, 8th, 15th)

Friday Light Casuals 4pm to 9pm
(Includes December 3rd, 10th, 17th)

Entry Fee:

$5.00 each Session
$15.00 gets you in for all 6 listed sessions (Must be paid first, cannot be activated retroactively)

You’ll notice this is only a schedule for the first 3 weeks of December, the final 2 weeks will be announced on December 15th (it’s safe to say there will be no friday Sessions in that period). I can also add additional dates to the schedule depending on demand…for example Tuesdays are possible if anyone is up for it. So if you are gonna be on holiday let me know and i’ll see what i can do cause i would love to get more gaming in! Also i’m trying to squeeze in a tourney somewhere…maybe Sunday December 12th

Badass, I’m not even in the area(Scarborough) but I partake in the Heroes World casuals.
GO YRSF!


#7

I wanna drop by on wednesdays after college. But website says i gotta register on SRK first. What do you mean by that? Can’t i just drop by and pay $5 at the door?


#8

Hi there,

You don’t need to register on SRK for Heroes World casuals. You’re more than welcome to just drop in and play.

The TOSF HQ is another venue that requires pre-registration as they have limited space. You can check their thread here:
http://shoryuken.com/f248/team-stc-presents-tosf-hq-its-here-toronto-256046/

Hope that helps.

you can just show up and pay 5 at the door and you’;ll be fine

Said it before and will say again, this truly is a good deal. Fellow SF junkies don’t sleep on the generosity Heroes World is offering up.


#11

Just paid the $15 today, very very good deal for regulars. My buddy(padkuma) doesn’t come that often and he paid it as well though I remembered it being $20 lol!

Also 20% off Second Cup coffee when I’m there! lol!
Never noticed that it was the preferred coffee over Mcdonalds(just noticed how many SC cups there were tonight!).

2nd Cup>McDonald’s
