City Meet Ups! Non-tournament related gaming sessions between the cities in Texas.

JanJan Joined: Posts: 305Registered, Moderators
Don't feel like you have been playing a lot of out of city competition? Well City Meet Ups aims to change that. A City Meet Up is essentially a get together between the players from the different cities in Texas. It will rotate mostly between the major cities, being Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and *Kileen. They will be held at the various venues within a given city.

The 2nd City Meet Up will be on:

June 11th @ Proving Grounds - Killeen
Proving Grounds Tournament Gaming Center

28 setups, leather couches, projection screen, broadband streaming, pizza joint to its right, and hooka bar to its left.
$10 venue fee for the whole day! (normally $3.50 per hour, only charge when you are actually playing)

the following weekend, we are kicking off ***UCC*** 1st tourney for the next season featuring: MvC3, SSFIV, and MK.

-Rotendo

The other meet ups will be planned and the info will be posted up as soon as everything has been finalized.

    I was talking to some of the players. Joe seems like he really wants to help out me out and the guy from DFW fight club. If you need to speak with me about organizing this in your city just pm me.

    I really like this idea. The best part about any of the Texas tournaments I've been to is always the casuals and MMs IMO. This will be so sweet, a full day of casuals with different crews and a shit ton of setups that won't be taken up by any tourneys going on. :bgrin:
    at least im better at bust a move!!!!

    Man that's gonna be tough in Dallas since we have no arcades :( We need to find a place to rent out or some thing out here.

    It could all be held at one place. The reason I am trying to do it the way I am currently doing it in Houston is because we have all of these venues.

    Yes you have to drive outside of your city to play other people. The benefit though is that everyone else will do the same thing so you can play people from different cities regularly. And then there is always the month when the meet up is held in your city and you don't have to travel anywhere!

    I'll keep Rodolfo informed

    Yeah, Steve. This is what I was talking to you about, how Jan approached me with this idea. So I'm cognizant of the city meet ups.

    We may not have any arcades here in Dallas but we do have FC and we will have other places. Once I move into the new place we're trying to get setup, we can definitely host games there for any out of towners who want to come out and support the scene so I'm down for sure. This is honestly what is truly needed for us to develop into better players overall.

    This is a great idea! Ppl from other cities should arrange traveling plans and try to carpool to the city of the month meet. It's probably a good idea to schedule the meet day when there's no tourneys going on in other cities. Cus chances are ppl would rather stay in their city than travel. Just a thought. I like that is a 3 day weekend thing. Since I'm usually only available Fridays and I'm sure other ppl are only available some of those days.
    Just a thought: the first post can be updated with ppl from out of town who are planning to travel to the city of the month. With info like 3 ppl in one car 2 seats available for ppl who want to go. And they can all just pitch in for gas since it's like 10000 bucks a gallon right now. Bit yeah. Just a thought.
    Just saw that bar fights 2 tourney thread. I'm there! See you guys this Saturday! At Monsters Arcade! For the south shall rise again tournament!

    I'm liking this idea already. I always wanted to meet new players and level up my game. So I can't wait for this to come to Dallas.

    I hope a lot people come since Houston is godlike at marvel 3, and everyone who doesn't play marvel can play me in ssf4 and get abused by me ^_^

    I'm definitely gonna try and make it out once this will be in austin/san antonio/dallas because I haven't played any of you fools on your home turf.

    What he meant was that we (Waco and Killeen) have been trying to get a city and city session/tourney. It has been discussed on the boards and in person. Actually Steve has even went up to Waco to play. I wasn't available due to work. Where you been?
