    Hi there. Unfortunately, good vf3 comp in london has all but vanished. The closure of namco wonderpark in great windmill st, and the dreamcast release are the main reasons, I guess.
    There are some awesome players here, but getting them down an arcade has proven tricky. We managed to organise a small meet recently, and were privileged to have the uk #1 and #2 attend and dazzle us, but there were loads of other faces not present...and who knows where they've vanished to?
    The only place I can think of is Namco in County Hall, between Westminster and Waterloo. Hang around there, by all means, but don't think anyone else will come(!)
    I think your best bet is to find a friend and force them to play it with you, read a few faqs, and then go to Japan or something :(
    Whereabouts are you? I *may* be able to convince a few people to come challenge.

    yeh, i have the same problem of no competition. i live in the nw of england, but i go to london now and again, so who knows, maybe i'll play against you some time. what's happened to the arcades on trocadero? i.e. segaworld/segapark
    email me if you're ever near manchester and want some vf competition.

    the arcades in london have gone to shit, the lack of competion is starting to piss me off slightly, i work with someone who is a fellow vfer but i have not had a chance to sit down and play him, if you ever near london mail me and maybe we could have a couple of rounds.

    Would this be Ryan and Hatim? Any way of getting hold of either of them?

    I was thinking of spending a week or so in London in okt/nov. Would be fun to meet up with some VF'ers - esp. Ryan and Hatim.

    Hello,

    I am traveling to London at the end of this week and would also like to meet up with some players.

    I'm from Vancouver, Canada and I'm a decent player. I learned VF with fellow Vancouverite Mike Skupa (mutant) who played with the London crew and said they were the best he ever played. I'd really like to check out the amazing skills of Kick-Cancel Roy, Prince Hatim, and of course Ryan Hart.

    Unfortunately I'm only in London for a few days, and my g/f has got us going to the "shows" (yawn), leaving me only one night: Sunday, Oct. 1st.

    Sooo.. if anyone wants to hook up on Sunday, I'm lookin for some players. And even if you can't make it, post and let me know where a good arcade with VF3tb can be found.

    thanks,

    tellure

    Heya tellure :eek:)

    On a whim, I decided to try and give Prince Hatim a call... found his mobile number in an ancient email account I have - and he answered it!

    He said he'd be glad to meet up with you on sunday Oct. 1st.

    He mentioned almost noone plays it anymore, as the arcades have all died, but that the players are still good. There's one arcade left that does have it tho, and some ppl have the DC version.

    Anyways, I'll send you his mobile phone # so you can get in touch with him. He might make it on here to leave his current email addie for you too, he said.

    Have fun and good luck :eek:)

    Wow! It's been ages since I left a message on here. Well my e-mail is hatim@nippon.screaming.net and my phone number is (+44) 956 922 584.

    Whoever wants to come down, just give me a call. Don't expect there to be hoards of players. I'll contact as many people as I can, if 2 or 3 people turn up.....well it's better than a poke in the eye with a wet sausage!

    Those who want to come, CALL ME!

    Later.

    I emailed Hatim about a location but haven't heard back yet. I'm leaving tomorrow so I'm just going to give his mobile phone a call when I get there and see where this'll take place. Time will most likely be evening I guess.
