Hate to be that guy who is negative but if you really want people from street fighter or other games to come play at your house you would have to move it off a day that TTF does its sf4 tournaments. The day when those two sf heads showed up was when ttf was closed for the night and they didn't feel like driving to clairemont to where sf4 got relocated for the night(every one else did I guess)

Vast majority of people willing to play other games only play them as a side game to marvel and sf4 and they are willing to stick to going to TTF. If you want some of those guys to come you'd have to put it on a day that doesn't already have a tournament or major casuals or something going on.(mondays, tuesdays,fridays,sundays are all taken I think) and you'd have to find someone that plays games with those guys they know and heard of to convince them to come out.

I don't know what the persona 4 arena community is like and where they play at in sd or where they post at.

Not trying to hate or anything. Personally I kind of like the small group of kof players we managed to get going there since its the main game I play and I don't have to pay a fee to lose all night to jason :) But I get why you really would like to expand a bit and if you really want that you would have to move things around a bit and get to know people who play those games.

Whatever you decide to do I am down for whatever tho. I try to go where KOF13 goes.

@Desmond: Here's the thing that I did not mention. The #1 resource for learning and talking about KoF for almost 70% of the answers was streams. So people are learning tech that they are not reading about. This relates to top players giving out info and informational videos from them.

This is important because they're big names and they know/do things that people see on stream. Some players post on forums, but a large portion of them don't so that's things they know that's never documented. It could be a language barrier or it could be they just want people not to know their gimmicks. The point is that it's something they see, but it's not something people can duplicate or learn about. Even if they do, the only thing out on video is combo videos. The wiki only includes, for the most part, basic info on moves, normals, and combos. Combos are great, but they're only half the game. Things like pressure, zoning, and basic tactics these guys use to get their combos and whatnot are not documented.

Anyway, Desmond, I've been trying to get organizers to check out this info. If you're interested, shoot me a PM.

I know I am kind of a random here but just wanted to post some points in support of the above.
Just want to say that as someone who isn't very good at kof 13 trying to learn the game over the past year, honestly the dreamcancel wiki is mostly good to read and get down basic combos in training mode with a character. The wiki doesn't help that much with other more advanced tactics or setups with characters.
Everything else I've learned beyond just basic moves and combos has basically been from juicebox's stream. He will spend a lot of time going over setups and strategies with people in the chatroom for a specific character he is training with.

With street fighter and marvel people have tons of resources to get real indepth knowledge about characters. Not just combos but useful tactics and setups. Help with specific matchups against certain characters and stuff like that.

Street fighter and marvel have constant media to help guide people into getting into their games at nearly every skill level.
For example, I just had a friend who mostly played other pc games competitively to finally decide to pick up fighting games.
First he found Maximilian's videos on his youtube page, Then he started watching team spooky weekly big2 streams, big event streams like Evo and other majors. Then he started watching cross counter/gooplay videos(gootecks commentating and talking to the stream while he plays sf4ae or 3rd strike online) and finally after the above happening over the course of about 6-7 months of being just a casual stream watcher he recently decided to become a player.

There was a progression for him to follow that dragged him into the community to the point where he recently grabbed sfxt and sf4ae and an arcade stick.
I've shown him kof streams whenever I can like I play winner and he will watch and enjoy kof at majors that are streamed. But you can tell he isn't as interested in kof as the other games.
