Considering there's a west coast thread, I thought I'd post an East Coast thread, just to see if anyone even still is around!

So...?

Hi Rugal Falconstein! Been a while!

I'm still in Boston! It's still on the east coast!

edit: Man I haven't been down by your part of the coast in a while but I still tell people the "accidentally met a dude I knew from a tiny messageboard while waiting in line to play SvC Chaos" story to the .5-1 people who care per year! They may or may not be delighted every time!

Wow, pretty sparse, sadly! Anyway, would anyone around here be up for trying to meet up sometime in June?

Hi guys! I'm a new member here, and I was trying to find some sites to raise awareness for a KOF scene in the East Coast, and I stumbled on this great site thanks to IPlayWinner. Anyways, I'd love to extend an invitation to all of you to help the East Coast scene in KOF XIII!

Local Battles and Marco Polo, a player who has won KOF tournaments in the NY area, have created a show dedicated to KOF XIII called Drive Cancel, where I help commentate. The show is created mainly to help new players understand the fundamentals of KOF XIII and also help the scene grow by keeping everyone up to date with what's happening in the KOF scene. Local Battles, if anyone doesn't know, was the former sponsor for NYChrisG, a very well-known tournament player, and they were nice enough to give us their venue to stream our show. LB is located in Fort Lee, NJ, and the show is every Saturday at 8 PM EST. Of course, you're also welcome to drop by during the show and help out!

I really do want to help the scene that has basically helped me the past year, so hopefully you can guys can help us by watching or spreading the news. It all culminates in the Drive Cancel Regional tournament in May, where all the best East Coast players will attend to see who's the best.

I hope you guys can help me, the show, and the scene out! The stream is twitch.tv/localbattles

I'll definitely come here more often!

Welcome to the bbs, FMSway!

Since they weren't posted, here are the URLs for Drivecancel.

IMO this is going to be pretty important for the east coast, especially considering Chinatown fair is reportedly going to be a family oriented location on its comeback.

This is probably a fair assumption. I thought CTF.. WAS back in a sense, in Brooklyn as "Next Level Gaming" or something, but it was primarily console-oriented now or something. I dunno, I haven't had a chance to head up there since the real deal closed down.

Yeah that, and a different owner is reopening the previous location with... well, colorful walls.

Anyway, I reiterate: Anyone interested in a meet-up sometime in June or July, for the "good ol' times"?

Plus, I'm sure somebody is interested in seeing my collection... I know some old timers have to remember all the weird shit I have! Plus, it's always growing...

Yeah. Next Level.
http://nycnextlevel.com

not an arcade, but it's the only place for that competitive edge in NYC...

and yeah, the reports are true. some close in the FGC got around to getting info on what the new guy is doing, and a lot of the old cabs have been dumped. they're being replaced with ticket/prize machines.

I was always interested in the old meet-ups but never could make them. I know I'd have to save up which would take me a while (default to July?) and still not sure I could make it. Adding on to that is the desire to drive and the knowledge of the driving time involved. Just got back from the East Coast Game Conference and that can be draining when not prepared. Then again, NC roads suck.

That totally sucks, but it isn't too much of a surprise. I could postpone until July, if peeps are interested.

It's more like I wished they'd use a new name instead of calling it Chinatown Fair. It's going to be completely different to what it represented a long time ago, with the exception of people who maybe play DDR/ITG or etc. I'm not even sure if they're going to put step games.

While I know this is a good place for kids, calling it CTF just feels wrong lol.

And thanks guys who helping me spread the word about Drive Cancel. The guys at Local Battles set up a youtube channel, and I'm planning to add some content. Any suggestions KOF-wise? We'll also set up a Skype to talk to streamers and possible West Coast peeps~

Hi Oroch. I definitely AM interested, even if it's just one or two people. If I get any "yeah, let's try this some time in July", we can work out a definitive date.

Now that some of the cheapo bus lines have direct service from Boston to Baltimore, this is something I might be able to do! If someone can be my transportation when I get there...! July or August should be OK, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Let's and do this ~

Interesting luck. I come to the Cafe annually to check its current status (in memory of when this site used to be *the* place to go for JP fighting game news) and stumble upon this thread.

Hey red, this your favorite SF2 player. I haven't seen you for years now, ever since BlazBlue first came out on consoles and you were kind enough to host events, but I hope you've been doing well.

Same old, same old! I do want to host something again, it's been ages.

Edit: It just occurred to me, Ganelon... are you the ONLY American to ever win any matches in ST at all at SBO?
Also, dunno if you're in to it, but I'm getting Matsuri Senzo Kuyou...

I'm not too sure about Otakon anymore. I didn't get to meet you last year when I went (but I did meet another from UMBC...I think it was Dan...), and I feel I need to take some serious RL decisions.

If you have other planned meetups I'm open to hearing them.

Super sudden, but if anyone is up for playing some Gouketsuji Ichizoku: Matsuri Senzo Kuyou on the 3rd or 4th, post here and I'll figure out some way to get the relevant info to you.
