I'm making this thread for all the airdasher/niche/anime/non-Capcom/awesome fighting game players out there in Southern Ontario. I know we've got a lot more players than we realize, but there's no central place/forum where all of us can meet each other, talk about our non-mainstream fighting games, and schedule offline meet-ups and events.
Do you play (or want to learn):
- King of Fighters
- Melty Blood
- Arcana Heart
- Street Fighter 3: Third Strike
- Guilty Gear
- Super Smash Bros
- or BlazBlue?
Do you live in:
- St Catharines
- or another southern Ontario city?
Then register here and join us! Everyone is welcome: more people always make a community more hype!
(Edit: apparently if you double-post in this forum, it simply appends the new post to your previous one. :P So pretend my next post is below.)
I'll start things off with a
quick long introduction of myself.
My name's Bill. I live and play in Waterloo. I've been playing FGs since 2007 (I played StarCraft: Brood War before that). I started with SF3:3s, then moved on to AH1, SF4, TvC:UAS, AH2 (yes, really), MBAA, AH3, and Skullgirls.
I've travelled to and enjoyed a number of US and Canadian majors, mainly repping Canada in AH3 and MBAA(CC). My eventual goal is to snatch 1st place at an American Major. I've placed 2nd and 3rd in AH3 singles before, but with many regrets I could not take 1st. I'm hoping I can reach my goal in P4U once it comes out. (Alternatively, if someone else from Canada took 1st place, I would also consider that a major victory for the community.)
I also enjoy doing commentary. :P I record a lot of match videos because a) I used to watch a lot of match videos, and b) I've found that I learn the most from watching my own matches and my own losses. Historically, I have a bad track record for not uploading footage promptly after an event, though (unless I did really well...) <_<;;.
Lastly, I hope that everyone who plays these games in southern Ontario can consolidate into one large community to challenge each other, hype things up, and generally enjoy these games a lot more than as individuals and small groups. Hence this topic.

Both tournaments are scheduled to have BB, GG, MB, AH, and Skullgirls. And Summer Jam 6 will also have P4U as a main game. I'm hoping to attend both.
Woo Canada is hype tell your friends and stuff
My name's Ryan! I started playing a little under a year ago, beforehand I played brood war and starcraft 2. My first game was Blazblue, then SF4, then I went to casuals and met Bill and learned about Melty Blood, and played that until Skullgirls came out Now I play both, but more skullgirls, with WINDJAMMERS on the side. Toryuken was my first major, and I got 3rd place in Skullgirls, losing 2-3 to Justin Wong. In P4U I want to use Labrys!

Hi guys! I'm Kelvin, I go by Hakami as Bill and other Waterloo-goers know. I don't quite remember when I started playing FGs, but it was quite a while ago. I've been through a number of FGs, including F:UC, AH2 (T_T), Blazblue, Guilty Gear XX AC, Street Fighter 4, AH3, Phantom Breaker, King of Fighters 2000,2002/UM,11,12,13, MBAC, MBAA/AACC, and MvC3 (in no particular order).
The biggest one however, would definitely be Arcana Heart 3. AH3 is what brought me to Waterloo to play with Bill and the others, and it's taken me places I've never imagined it would. The two trips that I did take with the Waterloo crew to New Jersey for East Coast Throwdown, and soon after in Philly for Summer Jam 5 were my first tournament experiences, and they were a blast.
I used to regularly head out to Waterloo on weekends to play with the guys, buy something happened and I stopped going :V I still dabble in AH3, but nowadays is mainly Gundam Extreme VS :V I fully intend on picking up P4U when it drops, so see you guys then!
Sup Ryan. GGs last night: I know I swore a lot (sorry for that), but every one of those swears was me punishing myself so that I'll remember not to make that same mistake again.
Sup Kelvin. Man, we haven't seen you in almost a year, now! You didn't mention the first time you tried get to Waterloo, via GO Bus, and the schedules didn't line up so it took you 7 hours to get here from just east(?) of Toronto. +_+ (Nowadays, a GO Bus trip from Union station takes only about 2.5 hours with a ~10 minute layover at Sauga.)
By the way, have you heard from Azer/Omegaryuji since last year? He got sent to Mexico by his employer, made 1 or 2 posts on Homingcancel from there, and then disappeared. I tried stalking him on Dreamcancel and didn't find any new posts by him there, either. :S

Shitposter Skub reporting in.
Waterloo at this current now, but from Toronto.
I like sticks more than I like fighting games.
I probably won't post here that often because there's already dustloop and UW's forums that are super-hype for P4U.
P4A is an anime, I refuse to acknowledge that the localized version removes "Ultimate Mayonnaise" from the title.

Haha, good times Bill. That trip only took 7 hours cuz:
1) I started in Oshawa
2) 3 hour layover in Mississauga
3) Getting lost for a short while at the Waterloo bus terminal
XD in short, I could have been there in about 3 hours, without all the shenanigans
Azer has been MIA for a while now, no contact from him whatsoever :V then again, I haven't really made the effort to contact him either lol
