This Saturday was the End of Season 2 Event of Friday Night Fights – the free Fighting Game Community event hosted by Xtreme Gaming Colchester.

At the end of every Season (16 weeks or so) we hold a special event with a tournament and give out prizes to the top 3 placed players as well as a raffle earned through a points based system.
This was my first full season as I joined the first in the middle and I feel like that made a world of difference.

Season 2 consisted of weekly tournaments of two games Ultra Street Fighter IV and Skullgirls. I went into the second season feeling a lot better about my chances as I now had Ultra Street Fighter IV at home and a decent Fight Pad to hone my skills.

I managed to finish 1st in the 2nd season check out the points break down below it is a league system with points for turning up on each night and for doing well in each tournament.

Season points results:
1) 82 Points, Kinneas
2) 69 Points, DW|Kuniku
3) 37 Points, MOP|C4IQ
And I won this for coming 1st.

Xtreme Gaming and Friday Night Fights has been a revelation for me, a very welcoming community and lots of people to talk to with shared interests and not just gaming.

You can find out more about Xtreme Gaming here.

The event featured a Mortal Kombat X and Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament I managed to finish 3rd and 2nd respectively.

Thanks to the offline practice I’ve been getting I managed to get up the courage to pit my my skills against top ranked UK players at a major tournament next week.

So definitely consider coming down if you’re based in the Essex area for a cool free night of Fighting Game Action
