Dallas-Fort Worth Meetups
« on: November 09, 2011, 09:24:21 AM »
Hey! A bunch of us from dustloop meet up in Dallas(mostly in richardson, to be specific) to play fighters, and a bunch of us are interested in KOF13. Oldboy, Jet, Ronin and I will definitely play since we already enjoy KOF2002um, and i'm sure several others will learn the game.
Our most played game at meetups is Blazblue, but we also play tons of other stuff just depending on who's there. (Arcana, Guilty Gear, Third Strike, KOF2002UM, Street Fighter Alpha, Melty Blood, etc. etc)

Even if KOF13 has good netcode, if you're in the area you should come by to our meetups! Offline is awesome. We usually meet on friday or saturday(usually saturday), usually from 3pm-10pm. We usually meet at my apartment at the University of Texas at Dallas, but Frigid who is about 20 minutes away in Dallas proper also hosts sometimes.
Meetups are usually 6-13 people with 2-4 setups, just depends on who's able to come. We usually meet every week, but usually every 4th week or whatever nobody is able to host.

(The thread on dustloop is http://www.dustloop.com/forums/showthread.php?9422-Dallas-Fort-Worth-Thread if you care. I may sometimes post stuff a little sooner there than here.)

I'll be hosting the saturday after kof13 comes out, probably. Hope to see some KOF13 players from dreamcancel at meetups after KOF13 comes out! If you wanna come to an earlier meetup to maybe play some KOF2002um or non-snk, that works too.
If you live around Dallas and play KOF, AH3, BB, GG, or MB, PM me~

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: I'll PM my address(or the address of whoever's hosting) to ya'll.

BTW yeti, what games do you play? Oldboy and I will be there so we'll definitely do some KOF2002um if you'd like. I think the meetup's focus this weekend will be BB/AH3, though.

That's alright, I just want to check out how the meet up is like. I play anything except for bb/ah3/mvc3. I'm totally new at those games, but I might try it out.

I actually live in Dallas right on the border of Plano and Richardson so the location sounds great to me. Though to be honest I stopped playing BB ever since the CS2 patch came out. Discovering that all the Ragna combos I learned (and still trying to master) were changed kinda turned me off to the game. However, I am willing to give it another shot I suppose. I really love GG though I admit that I would be lying if I said I knew how to play it. My main focus has been on KOF, and I have been meeting up with Dark Geese (who lives out in Canton) to train up on that game. He's dying for some competition as well so I imagine I can get him to come along as well.

I suppose the bottom line of what I'm trying to say here is that I am interested, but I only just recently started playing fighters hardcore. Many of the games you mentioned I have played only very little so I won't be much competition for them. As long as you and the other guys there can respect that then I'm in (assuming family crap doesn't get in the way that weekend).

Glad you're nearby! I understand @ ragna thing. Anyway, people would being willing to teach/help you with whatever games, but you dont have to learn non-kof stuff if you dont want to. We usually have 1 setup per 3 people(i try hard to organize that, anyway) so chances are if there's 3 people up for kof then you can just play KOF.

Dont worry that you only started playing fighters hardcore recently. We have players who are fairly casual/new, we're a pretty welcoming scene. I'm relatively new too, I joined in late 2009.

If Dark Geese came to meetups, that would certainly be something.

Ok, that works. Like I said to MTM, if you want to learn something new someone will probably be willing to teach, but there's no obligation.

Turns out I will be able to make it for this saturday. I haven't had a chance to talk to DG yet, but I have another friend who already said he'll come. Just tell me where to go and I'll be there.

Do you guys play 2002um on xbox or ps2? Also, what system do you play BB on? Do I need to bring my own controllers?

We usually play 2002UM on 360. Jet has a japanese ps2 and we have played it on that before, but he hasnt been able to come lately, so oldboy and I have been playing 360 version. More convenient stick-wise anyway.

We play BB on whatever. Slight preference for 360 though when it comes to my place, since I dont have the DLC charas on my ps3 copy unlike on 360 and like 2-3 people play on 360 pad.
You should probably bring your own controller, especially if you play on stick. Also, I have converters that allow people to play ps2/ps3 pads, ps2 sticks, and ps3 Hori sticks on the 360, so that may end up convenient for you.  (Before I had a ps3 I actually bought a PS3 HRAP 3 because it was cheap, to my liking, and worked with my converters!)

I have a ps2 and a copy of 2k2um for it, so that works too if you guys use ps2 sticks. we'll make it work.

That's cool. Saves me the trouble of bringing my ps2, which wouldn't be fun because it isn't modded so I have to use swap magic.

Edit: Dark Geese will indeed try to make it this Saturday. He'll bring his own setup and a bunch of games. He likes to record his matches,  but I'm sure he won't record anyone who doesn't want to be.

Oh, damn, already? That'll be cool, though we dont have the practice to put up much of a fight in kof2002um, but i really look forward to fighting with him on a relatively consistent basis in XIII.

the replay thing is normally cool but strange in this situation because i hope he's not excepting decent competition in something that isnt XIII :1 Not that we mind getting our asses kicked, just sayin~

Nice to see you signed up on here, mightfo.  Good luck with getting things rolling in Dallas (though it sounds like that's already coming along nicely *laughs* )!  Got a few friends down in Texas, so I might come out there one of these days to get bodied.

I'll try to make it to the first weekend you guys play XIII since I'm not sure if it'll be the weekend of Thanksgiving or the weekend after. I'm not super great with my execution and I'm still trying to learn the basics so hopefully I'll learn a lot from this experience.

Honestly, I find that looking over matches I had with him to be a very helpful tool. It helps me recognize my mistakes so I can work on breaking bad habits. But I understand if this makes other people uncomfortable. I can ask him to not bring his recording equipment if that is what you prefer. I'm sure he's not expecting a lot of competiton, but he likes to teach others so it works out.

On the flip side I got him to play BB for the first time only a few weeks ago. Believe me, whatever he does to us in kof we will have returned upon him in BB.

I don't think anyone's worried about getting their egos hurt. I was just worried we'd disappoint or something, but I'm pumped to learn from people who really know what they're doing in kof/snk games.
