Hi. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask a question about this, and I apologize if it's not, but how can I garner interest and create a local fighting community? Or perhaps, how to I fix the one I may have unintentionally destroyed?
One year ago, when I first arrived at college, I made new friends and one of them eventually brought out BlazBlue. His stated intent was to have us play off one another and improve together. Interest early on was very high, and most of us were new to fighters, we were all pretty even and everyone was happy. However, that didn't last. I fell in love with fighters, and I began to get more serious about playing them. In short, a small group of three people within the group began to break away in terms of skill level, foremost among them myself. The growing skill gap tore apart the group, to the point where by the year's end only 4 of us still played on a regular basis. Even within that group, there was still internal issues, often over the fact that my play and attitude in particular was cited by the others as responsible for the group's collapse.
I don't have access to netplay because I lack my own television (and don't want to hog the communal TV), nor is there a more serious FGC near me. It would pain me to drop fighting games now, so resurrecting the local group is my only hope to keep FG part of my life in the next nine months. Can anyone advise me how to go about it?
