I know there are a couple posts some of the other staff members here at Chip Damage want to put up that have been in “draft mode” for well over a month, maybe even longer. So I thought I’d pick a calm and quiet night just over ONE DAY before the release of the greatest game this year, “Street Fighter IV“(You’re damn right it’s almost here!), to tell you folks my heart-warming story of failure and rise-to-glory. Well, maybe not. But it is my story nonetheless.
I’d like to state something to all the casual players and players just starting out in fighting games. Although I am considered a part of the “staff” here at Chip Damage, this does not mean I am automatically some uber pro at any fighting game. I am merely in charge of the website. Although I do have a very strong interest in fighting games(mostly the Street Fighter franchise), I only joined the scene about two years ago.
Over two years ago, I played quite a bit of Super Smash Bros. Melee, but I never really played it competitively. Back then I was completely unaware there was a scene in Winnipeg for that sort of thing. Anyways, I eventually outgrew it and became bored with schooling the same friends over and over, so I just stopped playing. One night, months later, a few my friends had a LAN, basically where we bring all of our computers over to one place and play games all night.
ChipDamage.com is proud to present Fight for the Future 2: Revived, a fund-raising fighting games tournament for a local charity, the Children’s Hospital.
Well, the first Fight for the Future II got canned, simply because of time and scheduling. So here’s the revival of it. This will be a fund-raising tournament, with most of the entry fees going towards a local charity yet to be decided on. The first one was a pretty good success since we raised 200 dollars from just 5 tournaments. This year, we’re hoping to raise a bit more with support from other players from around the nation/world.
Fight for the Future 2 Details:
Super Smash Bros. Melee: 2:00pm
Capcom vs. SNK2: 2:00pm
Super Street Fighter Turbo (HD-Remix if it’s out): 4:00pm
Street Fighter 3 – 3rd Strike: 6:00pm
Sould Calibur IV: 7:00pm
Location: Armes Building Science Lounge
Date: Saturday, November 22nd, 2008
Entry to the venue is free. Entry per game is $5.00. If you pay for 3 tournaments ($15.00), you may enter a 4th free of charge.
The prize structure will be different as we will be doing a raffle and will have only 3 prizes for the 5 tournaments. It will go as follows:
Everyone who enters will get a predetermined amount of tickets for entering. The more games entered the more tickets they’ll receive. The more matches you win will earn you more tickets. You may then distribute your tickets amongst the prizes that will be available. This way, everyone will get a chance to win when we draw out the prizes. Prizes will most likely be something along the lines of gift cards from EB (Electronics Boutique), Futureshop, or something along those lines. If you do not wish to wait until the drawing occurs, be sure to leave your contact info and we’ll try to find a way to get the prize to you.
Drinks will be sold and proceeds will go to the charity as well.
