"I can care less whether I win or lose, cause I treat every tournament like a vacation. Because if you’re not having fun before or after matches with fellow players, and also enjoying the city/town where the event is, you missing out on a lot of possible fun at the tournaments."
- BBoyDragon

Whether he is competitively playing DOA at the biggest tournaments in the US circuit or lighting up the dance floor with his Break dancing, BBoyDragon always wants to put on a show for everyone involved. As he steadily progresses to become one of the top echelon players in the US, he plans to bring Phase-4 into the mix and bring his insane and highly offensive mindset to NEC.

Hello FSD, grap3fruitman with another retro DOA scan, this time it's Dead or Alive History - Team Ninja Freaks -. Originally published in the summer of 2004, this book is a collection of interviews, concept art, design docs and lots of "behind the scenes" stuff for the DOA series up until summer '04 and covers DOAs 1-3 (including ++).

Greetings FSD'ers!

This is a heads up that I'll be running a Kasumi stream this Sunday, November 22nd @ 8PM EST at this location: The stream session will serve as an opportunity to break down this reasonably complex character with the intent of being able to gain a better understanding of how she functions. People looking into potentially taking up the character will likely gain the most benefit from the session, though those interested in learning how to deal with her may derive some benefit too! The primary focus will be on how you manage this character during and throughout a match.

Some topics that are being looked at:

"In contests of strategy, it is bad to be led about by the enemy. You must always be able to lead the enemy about."
– Miyamoto Musashi

Next on the list is a player hailing all the way from the West Coast. He is one of the most notable and educated players in the game today. He consistently places high in almost every tournament he attends with his character, Ayane. He is also known for his patient spacing game. His name is HajinShinobi. Bringing along Ayane from the breezy air of Northern California to the chilly climate of Pennsylvania, HajinShinobi will be seeking his first major trophy at this year's NEC.

Why did you pick that quote over all of the others?
