1. How long have you played KOF? Which KOF was your first? Which is your favorite?
I’ve played KOF since the first edition came out. A good friend of mine introduced it to me after playing The Art of Fighting in a local arcade back in Juarez Mexico. That was in 1994. My favorite KOF edition is 2000 because of the gameplay and the good selection of characters and strikers even though many will disagree but thats my personal opinion.
2. Why KOF over all of the other fighters?
Back in Juarez MEX playing KOF is more of a tradition for young kids and there is more selection of KOF than any other games. Although my main reason for playing is because of the style of animation. Characters in specific have more style in moves and the gameplay pace is fast and combos look awesome with flashy desperation moves.
3. Are you a tournament player? If so, list your tournament rankings.
I became interested in the tournament side of the game because of the friends i met here in Colorado. I always played KOF but it was more of a past time for me since playing KOF happened when going on a trip to the corner store. When i participated on the last three majors I did not get out of pools.
4. Do you have a local scene or do you rely on online play?
Yes we have a very solid local scene here in Colorado we are known as KCO (Kings of Co) its a small scene but we hardly miss any of the two days we meet during the week. I also play online whenever i get a chance.
There are many KoF communities around the world. Some of them we have come to know quite well through their players and streams, but there are many other communities out there who love KoF that you might not have heard of. To celebrate the love of KoF around the world, we are starting a series of articles titled “We Love KoF” to highlight the different KoF communites, including the ones that you might not be familiar with. We hope that by exposing the stories behind different communities, you will be inspired to keep developing and growing your own local scene.
For the first installment, we head toward the scenic state of Colorado. Colorado is the home of a big FGC including a group of very dedicated KoF players. Most of the FGC in Colorado is organized by the Extra Fresh League, which consists of all fighting game players of Colorado. Read more
