SFIV/SSFIV Laredo Player Rankings Updated! 8/22/2010

SFIV/SSFIV Laredo Player Ratings
Updated: 08/22/2010
Thanks to Joel Sauceda :-)
UPDATE 2: After looking though the ratings I noticed some people are listed twice. for example, yetiantics and Juan C. Garcia are the same person, so is Gustavo and Quack :s

I let Joel know and a corrected list will be done around Wednesday. so... THE RATINGS WILL CHANGE.
In the mean time, I ask everyone to look at the list and post any people that are listed twice.

Red box to start renting out games in the future?

I went to Walmart and decided to browse the redbox for movies when I hit the "rent movies " button, I was presented with a menu with options.  One such option was "games". After half a second it automatically chose movies category for me. :(

We had a great turnout this time around also, even better then last time!
16 players showed up.
thanks to pabbs, vic,goose, Addic, and Tano for bringing in food and refreshments!
I ran into some problems with the stream, during the live stream the audio was spazing out.

Due to this past weekend's successful fight night, people that missed it can't wait for 3 weeks from now. so i decided to be nice and host it again.

Everyone is invited again. We will have 2 setups for SSFIV(ps3 & 360) and 1 for Tekken 6 (ps3).

The event will be streamed from my phone.
