    I think he was referring to focus fire seeing as its this weekend.

    Edit: Also just looking at the Frost Faustings thread, I doubt I'll have any interest in going to that. Not interested in SF4 or GG and it's looking like the 3rd game is going to be melty shit so yea.

    How'd Focus Fire go? I can see that Grog decided to show the world his Third Strike skills once again.

    I think it went pretty well. I placed second in both high stakes and regular ST, and even made Justin counter pick me in high stakes (though he learned my Sim during the regular tourney and didn't need to). My team picking skills in 3S are still amazing, I got carried to winners yet again. Not sure where I placed in Vampire, there were 8 people in it total I think so me winning one and losing two would tie me at 5th? I didn't play HDR, we decided to leave before it started due to the blizzard, we at least got our money back in it. If I entered I'm pretty confident I would've placed at least second. Also if you watched the stream ignore what John the commentator said, he blew what I said a bit out of proportion :tup:

    Congrats Grog.
    I really need to remember that this thread exsists lol.
  • GrogGrog discombobulatingly Joined: Posts: 3,618
    Thanks guys, don't forget Murph got 2nd in Vamp and Curtis also got in the money for randoms 4.

    Also just got a call from Rob, he won't be able to drive down this weekend due to work. To be honest after this last weekend I'm not in much of a mood to drive, if someone else wants to volunteer I'll chip in gas of course though.

    A tourney with hnk? That would be awesome, even though it would probably end up being round robin.

    Please tell me that hnk is going to be played on a cab...

    Well then, Congrats Curtis and Murph as well. Between work and holiday plans I won't be able to drive out this weekend. I would have offered otherwise, it's been too long since Redemption. Quick question though, anybody use a Tek case yet? The full Plexiglass ones that a tech talk poster makes?
  • VamperialVamperial Joined: Posts: 25
    Yay double post.
    On another note, anyone gather on the weekends aside from Rob and myself?

    I'm on the same page as the man formerly known as grog, I'm willing to throw in for gas if someone is willing to drive.

    And yes, I have a tek-case stick, its pretty nice, but not perfect.

    Ok, status updates on what's happening this weekend (that is if plans are still on). Who's riding with who?... When we leaving?... How long we staying?... that sort of thing.






    On a side note

    IN ONE DAY BEEEEEEEEEEYATCH! I'M THAT DAMN GOOD!

    ^Yeah.

    As far as I know, people going are:

    Me
    pbj
    Grog
    EvilZangief
    Blank

    That's enough for one car. Personally, I'm in favor of driving down and back same day since we have no accommodations and I don't want to spend the money unless forced to (due to weather). If that's the plan, when and where are we meeting/leaving?

    Also, I guess it's me or Charlie that has to drive. I know Charlie already said he doesn't want to, but I'd like to point out I've already driven to KC once and also to Minneapolis. But since I seem to have 0 authority around here, I'm guessing I'll have to.

    What say you?

    Blake you do make a good point that you drove last time, I'll drive but it'll still be there and back same day (well maybe stay Saturday if things get TOO late). There is one problem though, I won't be home on Friday night for the Ames guys to crash at my place. I'll be home around 11pm but is that too late?

    Oh, Thank you Charlie. I appreciate it. My gas payment will be generous.

    So we're meeting at your place Saturday, what time? I'm staying with Joker Saturday night, might stay Friday too, or else I leave at like 5am.

    Wait, I thought there was 2 cars?

    If it's just one then, no point in cramming 5 people for 3 hours, so I won't bother.

Figgy is riding with me so we'll see some honda bs in ssf4 for sure.

    Good luck in KC, guys! Kick an ass or two! :woot:

    Wish I could go, but I just moved into a bigger apartment recently, so I still have boxes to unpack. I also need to get some last minute gift shopping done.

    ... and now I'm hearing two cars again!

    Who's riding with who? This is something I'd rather get finalized within the next 1.5 hours.

    So who's riding with who? This whole time I was planning on riding with Rob but if we need a second car I can drive. Also again I'm out until late tonight (11pm is my guess).

    I would like to go, and ride with whoever is available. But if me not going means there only needs to be one car, I'll gladly stay at home.

    So my family is gone for 2 weeks and i was thinking of doing one night of casuals at my place in West Liberty don't know if this week or next week but its going to be either a Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday technically the living room can do 3 set ups and the basement can do 2 set ups. Right now its Me, Quadcore, our scrubby friend who now goes by the handle Pokemon Hero or Kanto Kid, and hopfully we Kemps can come. So I don't know if anyone else wants to come up to West Liberty.

    Don't worry Rob, I got dead last in BB for us! At least I tied for 9th in Super to make up for it.

    2011 is gonna be a big year, I'm planning on knocking people around like the old days.

    (where in, i knocked everyone around because no one played here!)

    CS2 - Dat Hazama chaining your ass
    A.E. - Dat Yang slashing your ass
    Mahvel - Whoever i think is cool, doing cool stuff to your ass!
    Gear - Lolz. Me in training mode, doing stuff to that training mode ass.

    Fear my return!

    How do I beat a good Hazama, my best strat so far is to throw a fireball and follow it. I don't know. Anyway 5th in the game LOLZ- purple grabs.

    Summary of the tourney for me, I got over nerves and didn't play like complete ass. Blank drinking Red Bull for the first time after 0 sleep the night before and making an all Iowa WF. I made Kurasa spend like almost $3.00 to kick me off the HF cab. Was the only person to notice that 85% of the setups lagged. Nearly died on the way back while Blank was sleeping. Thanks Sam for the support (Yeah 2D!) and the extra gas money. I really appreciate it and I always like our conversations about sf4 in the car that we always have. Heh.

    FREE SOUP!

    @Figgy, we got to run that back.

    Wait you drove? With Rob driving again and me and Curtis not going I thought that meant only one car was needed.

    Anyway good shit guys.
