    What were the results from AE singles? Is there a place where this is listed? Wish I could have hung around and participated more but had to take off early unfortunately.

    Add me on Xbox Live if you want to play some HDR or HF. Tag is Chachi SRK (such imagination, I know). I would recommend doing a quick Google for GGPO or Supercade if you want a better online HF/ST experience.

    GGs at the tourney, I'm pissed about dropping shit (teleport mixup, houtenjin) but ehhhhhhhhhhhhhh good times (except for trying to do a 40 minute drive in 20...)

    @Deron: GGs in BB. Most derptastic ending to a tourney match ever? (You know what I'm talking about.) I think so. :confused:

    @FullBleed: YEAH 3RD PLACE IN TEAMS SO GOOD!!! :lol:

    @2am: MK troll sessions in tourney grand finals all day every day.

    @Nick1time: GGs, glad to get games in AE finally.

    @Le: GGs, need to fight that Fei more. BTW I'm interested in seeing the Tekken movie, though to make driving out worth it (especially if the weather and my car's AC stays shitty) would you be down for games afterward if Spicy Tuesday doesn't happen?

    @Anyone interested in MK: I mentioned this to some people at the tourney, but there's gonna be a MK hookup in (hopefully) a couple weeks, probably on a Saturday (probably the Saturday the week after Evo, so just under 2 weeks). If interested, lemme know and say what character you wanna learn so I can grind out some fairly basic starter stuff w/ the character (if I haven't worked on them yet). And since a certain guy who "retired" from T6 expressed interest in this, if anyone wants a 1 on 1 grind session sometime PM me and we'll work something out.

    Special shoutouts to all the kids that came in wanting to play in MK, only to not stick around for the actual tournament. I gotta hold out until they lift the ban on the new characters. I'll probably have to pick up a PS3 pad too, playing MK on a traditional stick layout feels counter-intuitive.
    You have to just play it enough it gets better.

    Shout outs.

    Axiom- Thanks for destroying me horribly in tekken but its all fun n games. Thanks for the advice also

    Le- Your fei's hit-confirm is pretty awesome and Knowing frames does make a big difference in a players play. Thanks for the guidence

    Deron - Fuck you! Thanks for the entertainment and laughter and making me look like a master blocker lol (thats all I could remember how to do in tekken) its a really fun game and possibly may pick it back up.

    Chachi- Playing you in the team tournament was kinda a mind fuck It was a mirror and I got out classed in every way good stuff.

    Blarg- Sigh thanks for presuring me into mk and trolling in grand finals kanno is annoying.( but isnt he like mid teir now?)

    Pj- wow, thanks for breaking down life for me and how video games n stuff fits in there your pretty knowledgeable about alot of different things.

    Samson- Watching your and axioms grand final set was intense it really helped to watch high lvl play like that.

    Stormin - Keep practicing that Rindokan karate your makoto is pretty good just need to not bank of karakusa. I like to use it as a mind game.

    To everyone else good games, This weekend really helped me as a player and your feedback and guidance only is going to help me become a better player its already showing. Knowing match ups and frames of my characters pays off. Although Still strugling with doing some option selects with my characters.

    GGs to InsertCoin in HF earlier. Pretty solid. Beat my Gief.

    GGs all weekend

    Ryan - LOL how dare you troll me. God matched me in arcana and you gave me the unamused face. Drunken Ryan is the most legit shit.

    John - You dont understand how bad i wanted to win that match. I had alot to prove to myself in that match. Cant say that im satisfied with the outcome, but im still getting better. Not even gonna lie though, its a good feeling to here from the bastards who use to troll you for free, actually acknowledge your progress. I hope that lil marvel convo gave you a better outlook on your gameplay.

    Blargh - GGs to you also good brotha. I was pretty pissed about that match. You could probably say that was the reason for me to stop bullshitting and get in that ass.

    Raith - Blazblue 101......Get At Me

    Samson - I havent had fun playing marvel in a long time. Those combos were saucy, plus you actually can play tron which always gets my thumbs up.

    Malcolm - Frame data, Option selects.........Learn it, Love it, Embrace it.

    Peter - Glad you came bro, its always goodtimes when your in the building.

    PJ - Dude need to stop beating me in blaz.

    Le - Just for being Le

    Boxy - Just for being Boxy

    Alex - Just for being EX Money Hand

    1time - Imma need the Sf rundown on my game sometime this week. You can tell me face to face or throw it up here. Im pretty much in the dungeon in all games this week.

    Everybody else goodtimes as usual

    Boxy losing to that guile player lol. Even I beat him HaHa. I mean really, who uses U1 with guile?
    More people should play MK, it is really good. Mileena needs Ivory cutter.
    Smakula - don't get discouraged. Keep leveling up in tekken. The nina vs hwaorang match up is very hard for hwoarang. I know jon believes every match in T6 is a 5-5 but it is not. The nina vs k-bob is 7-3 nina. nina is faster, has better pokes, better set ups, more reliable juggles, better wall game, and b1(the k-bob killer). You also have some bad habits that even an old dinosaur like me can pick up on, like you abuse d1. I just started to low parry or ss2 d1 when I knew for a fact you were going to do it. Also you don't break 12 throws at all. once I found that out I stopped doing the other throws and just did elbow smash. Those are some things you need to work on

    To be honest, I bet Z and DMAC will be bodying the hell out of most of the low-mid level players around here within another month or two. Bet it. Especially if they start coming out to hookups and playing the better players. I know I see DMAC at Wednesdays, but I haven't played him much. But Anthony (dmac) has great execution, which is a rare gift to have when you're first starting into a game. Reactions can be gained over time, but execution is a pain in the ass to master, and having that right out the gate is definitely a result of all that melee.

    I was surprised when I heard Z beat Boxy, but that's just because he JUST started playing Guile like... within the last couple weeks. He plays like an online guile right now, but we'll see how long that lasts.

    Unfortunately Dave.. you have been playing SF competitively as long as I have, and you are still pretty awful. I don't think I'd be laughing at ANYONE if I were you. :rolleyes:

    Cumulative list and speculation on all known, up to date changes (buffs/nerfs) in UMvC3

    I'll reserve judgements and comments till the game drops. I have my hands full with the current version. We'll see how the next few months go.

    Compiled a complete list of the ranbat points from the last 6 MO events. Here is the SF top 10:

    1) Rex - 35
    2) Axiom - 30
    3) Focra - 16
    4) Samson - 14
    5) Nick1Time - 9
    6) Smakula - 9
    7) Chachi - 8
    8) Boxbrosg - 7
    9) Kong - 6
    10) Kenshiro - 4

    Other events are from memory, but I am pretty sure it's accurate (minus the exact points)

    Tekken Leaders

    1) DatBoiSTL
    2) Axiom
    3) Boxbrosg
    4) Prod1gy
    5) Mr. Mister
    6) Count Smakula
    7) Ocie
    8) Donovan
    9) B1argh
    10) CPhame

    Marvel Leaders (started mid way through season)

    1) Rex
    2) DatBoiSTL
    3) MGF
    4) Focra
    5) Raith
    6) Samson
    7) GetThere1Time
    8) Axiom
    9) FG No Alias
    10) DatVip

    BlazBlue top 4

    1) DatBoiSTL
    2) Prod1gy
    3) B1argh
    4) Snipermav

    MK top 3

    1) B1argh
    2) Bobsmack
    3) Black Phantom

    Next season I plan to get trophies for top placers in respective games. I'll keep track of points, for bragging rights and trophies, but I'm still not going to do ranbat money collection.

    I'd like to bring back:

    -Raffle money matches
    -Older games for novelty (instead of mystery games, just do a popular game that is no longer played in most tournaments)

    As stated, we may omit some titles from the lineup. I'd like to continue doing hype/money matches, and team tournaments, so it may be prudent to remove our least played titles. We'll see what happens as far as interest at the season premiere next month.

    Minus our out of towners, we could probably consider these rankings the new 'tier lists' for local talent in each respective game.

    Also, Emerald made a good point at the last friday hookup. He mentioned that our front page could probably use a spreadsheet (directory) of each player, with their contact info (that they are willing to share) their name/SN and what games they play. That way, new players browsing our forums could see who they may need to talk to in order to get games in at a hookup. Just a thought.

    GGs to InsertCoin in HF earlier. Pretty solid. Beat my Gief.

    Ha, the old Gief is pretty tough to play. His 360 has massive range though. The last Blanka vs Balrog match was a good one. Other than that things weren't very close. I forgot how powerful throws are in SF. I'll have to practice a bit and get back into old form.... I think I can bring a better game... then we'll have to rematch.

    I mean really, who uses U1 with guile?

    Lots of Guile players (me included) are switching back to U1 for most match-ups because U2's damage nerf. U1 does tons of damage if landed. U2 not so much anymore. You can land a U1 if you execute it quick enough when your oppenent is in the air. You can also FA to U1.

    I had issues logging in sunday and was busy Saturday.

    @Chachi: Thanks for the MK games. Finally getting to play it against a person was fun, even if I couldn't figure out what the hell each button was.

    @Axiom: Thanks for the Tekken. I really need to play it more now.

    And on Friday, without my own setup with all the AE in action. I figured its time to stop fighting it. I'll play AE I guess. I have no idea who I'll end up playing or even how much effort will be done in it but I will try. At the moment, Makoto, because Rose is just asking to get dive Kicked into oblivion...

    I really like allot of the changes in UMVC3 right now especially cap having a double jump (which he always had in every game) and iron man losing his. Most of the OP characters got huge nurffs and allot of the cast overall outside top 5 got slight changes or buff that will cause people to change up their gameplay or god forbid pick new characters.

    I'm the best man. I deed it.

    The ranbat system without the hassle of taking money out of the pot each month is cool. Especially with the increase in parity at the top of results pages from both St Louis and Kansas City. I never got to see a raffle money match but i'd assume it would be pretty hype and give someone who lost exposure to playing in front of a crowd for prizes and the pressure that brings.

    Good games this weekend everyone! Street Fighter pissed me off...although at least I wasn't the only one...

    PJ - yeah you got me in that MM but our Arcana grand finals match was hella close. Good shit. I love that we are both lamenting the fact that no one in our respective scene plays the game...I'm gonna level up some other characters to use next time.

    Deron - God match LOLOLOL. In tournament, are you serious? You might be seeing that more with this Fire Elsa :badboy: Shoutouts to foreshadowing our drunk BB casuals: "Imma get these two seals, Imma get this FRKZ, and Imma win this round." And NO, you are not the Bang of KC hahaha.

    Blargh - I just need to get more games with you man...I don't play you enough. Good shit in BB though, and really good shit trolling Malcolm during MK grand finals, so hilarious.

    MGF - What can I say, I clutched out that match. Once I hit that command grab -> 5C -> 6D -> daifunka combo to kill you with my magic pixel of life left, that kinda woke me up and carried me to finish it out. Appreciate you playing in the tournament though, and we'll have to get more casuals in next time.

    Peter - "Yo Deron, where the hell did this guy come from?!?" Haha that shit was great. GGs in Arcana man.

    Le - Nuff said. Also, just got my PS2 today (only paid $15 for it lol) so I'm gonna get on that GG this week.

    To all you guys that say you want to play BB/AH3: Let's see it. I've heard a bunch of people say they want to learn the game but never actually get any further than that. If we don't start getting more players in those tournaments, we could lose them at Maxout. Hit me up if you have any questions at all in either game. I'll take responsibility for being the AH3 ambassador for the KC scene. Deron has already assumed that responsibility in BB, but I can help out there as well.

    Oh, and I probably won't be at the Buzz on Wednesday, got something else going on.

    Thanks to Axiom and Le for running the tourney.
    Thanks to Focra for perfecting me, haha.
    Thanks to Smakula for playing Claw, pretty jealous.
    Mr. Mister I don't remember playin you yet, and I'm pretty sure we didn't at Maxout.
    Boxy I'm sorry you took it so hard, but Yun man...Karma baby.

    Stepping into a new scene is weird, awkward, hard; but I'm glad you guys try to be as accommodating as we would for you in SSBM. A lot of hate for only being basic guile, but if I beat someone it's cause you fell for it? I've been in the competitive video game scene for years, and I've always played a street fighter on the side for fun. Just cause you haven't heard of me doesn't mean you can count me out, same for dmac. We haven't heard of most of you either until we got into your own scene.
    To be fair most of my wins were probably flukes, and I did lose where I should have cause I played poorly

    Z - I'm almost certain if you play Mr. Mister in SF, after you have had a little more time with the game, you will win. If you are in any way offended by his comments, feel free to put him on blast. The rest of us do it all the time.

    I said a mildly disrespectful comment during the tournament about how I was shocked when you beat Boxy because I thought he would be capable of handling a basic, brand new Guile. Apparently, I was wrong.

    Unlike most of these youngins, I DO know about you Barrio smashers and how much ass you guys kick in the national competitive Melee scene. I fully expect great things from you and DMAC in the months to come. Feel free to come to hookups, and ask for grind sessions anytime.
  • Only1zbroOnly1zbro Joined: Posts: 7
    Boxy beat my ass about a week or 2 ago on a Wednesday, maybe M.M too, so I see why there's a frustration there. Results matter, and although it costs money to get in to a wednesday hookup I think a monthly is more likely to drive up my competitive nature.
    I don't like to get into the trash talkin game, so shit like that doesn't bother me :P But people take losing to a random Guile personally :(

    I've only now started putting time into the technical aspect into AE, and I'm just awful at it. But yeah me and dmac will keep showin up as much as possible to gatherings, always fun times.

Soooo upset for missing Maxout, but at least I was able to chill afterwards. My Dante has gotten much better. I've been dropping fewer combos and improved on his spacing.
