    • Joe

      I play 3rd Strike and have a group of regulars on my friends list who play. I'll probably invite you later this evening.

      1 · November 14, 2013

    • Joe

      Hey what's up, I think Knowledge is going to make it for this event as well for some 3rd Strike and Smash Bros.

    I have confirmed this event. If you're already RSVPed, please make adjustments to your RSVP based on the new details. If you still intend to attend this event, go to your RSVP and answer the questions whether you will enter one or both tournaments, or just come by to spectate, play casually, or mingle. RSVPs that leave the questions blank will be assumed to be attending the event but not entering any tournaments.

    Alright, looks like 3/22 this event will go down. That gives plenty of time to promote it on Facebook, message boards, and for everyone to tell their buddies and whatever. I just want to ask again what game(s) people want to do. I think we could do two main games and a side game or 2 main games and a couple of side games. I was thinking SF3rd Strike, Soul Calibur V, BlazBlue, etc. as side tournaments. And probably Injustice, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, SSFIVAE2012, Brawl/Melee/PM, Tekken Tag 2, or KOFXIII as possible mains. Other than that, what time of day on Saturday, 3/22, would be better? Early afternoon around 12 or 1p, or later in the evening, say 6 or 7p?

      Sounds wonderful I'd say afternoon ish would be best. Also as for prizes I think there should be some kind of entry fee like 5$ per game entered or something like that. Unless you have something figured out. Thanks for the update

      So where is it going to be at?

      February 3, 2014

    • Joe

      It looks like I've got a few locations. They're in Plano area. I'm going to have to push back any event for late Feb/early March. Most likely the Epic Gaming Lounge or Console Gaming Exchange in Stonebriar Centre.

  • Daniel Q. P.

    If it's on a Friday, I'd totally be down to hit up some Smash Bros (Melee or Brawl).

    February 3, 2014

  • Joe

    There is a new gaming lounge opening up in january in the allen/plano area. Might be cool to host it there! https://www.facebook.com/EpicGamingLounge

    December 13, 2013

    • Joe

      Yeah I checked them out. I think they could make a good option. I'll have to see when they open up.

    Would anyone be interested in Killer Instinct?

    1 · December 12, 2013

    • Joe

      Yeah, that's definitely on the table. I'm just trying to find the right spot to host these events and then it's a go.

      December 13, 2013

  • Shane C.

    November 13, 2013
