    and I'm now sure I will forever stay in Hunter Rank......
    this game is like a abusive relationship I'm constantly playing but I feel like I'm getting almost nowhere and I keep getting uber salty. I guess I just gotta keep going.

    btw now that I've bitched does anywhere know any good channels to watch for combo videos of multiple VF characters? or just good VF youtube channels? I got Max and Fingercramp for marvel and cross counter and 8wayrun for matches, but nothing for discussion of VF.

    I am at Barbarian rank right now. If I can do it you can do it. I've only been playing fighting games for half a year so I'm no expert. On the other hand, if you do not rank up, it does not mean anything. There are lots of button mashers/input lag abusers online. The fact that you do not do well online does not mean you are a bad player offline.

    Have you tried virtuafighter.com (VFDC)? I lurk there a lot and they have great info. The only reason I don't have an account there is the fact that I cannot access their site from my job LOL

    I got demoted for the first time this weekend (from barbarian to raider) because I kept playing an Akira that kicked my ass LOL

    On a slightly related matter, I have been promoted to deadbeat dad of the year for playing Virtua Fighter while at the same time attending to my 1 month old daughter's demands for attention. LOL

    Is Virtua Fighter addictive or what?

    So I played a ton of matches, and I lost a majority of them. Trying really hard to get better. I need to figure out what I can do to improve...I think one problem is that I need to be able to tell when an attack string is finished, but the only way to do that is to learn the other characters' movesets. I find that I've been punishing :d:P more often, but I need to find ways to maximize damage so that the opponent never does it again.

    Most of my matches have been against either Aoi, Lion, or Lei-Fei. Lion in particular pisses me off.

    Lion is mostly block low -> Profit, to be honest. I know theres the "good players will make you eat an overhead 90 damage combo", yeah I know, but theres not many in the early hunter+ ranks. Who do you use, king?

    You are lucky to find such variety. 50% of the people I play main Jacky. I'm kind of sick of the blonde cake mews...

    I've managed to improve my win/loss ratio to 50% but my rank tends to go down because I always rematch whether I win or lose, while people tend to avoid rematchs when they lose.

    LA Akira's going to personally give $50 to the highest-placing new VF5FS player at WNF. Also, they'll get $10 for each game they win against him if they meet him in the tournament.

    I like this a lot. You won't find a lot of people willing to put bounties on their own heads to attract new players. Hopefully it works!

    I'm strongly considering taking LA Akira's concept and applying it to a tournament here in AZ. Of course, I'm nowhere near as good player he is, but I just feel like I've got to do something to jump start a scene around here. Even if if it means I lose $20 bones getting bodied lol.

    You don't necessarily have to reward people for beating you, but offering a bonus to the highest-placing new player wouldn't be a bad idea.

    Alan: Soul Calibur 2? Dead or Tecmo? Laughin – nevermind. That’s a good point, there have been mentions of those games on the forums. Strange days eh, who’d have thought people play more than one genre of game… Ok, so what else in general has been planned for the next MLG event? Any other fighting games?

    Carlos: We have a lot of great things coming down the pipeline for MLG Raleigh. Obviously we touched on a few of the changes we are making to the broadcast for fans, casual setups, and exhibitions. In the way of games I have been actively been pursuing as many developers as possible. I was lucky enough to get to speak with the guys over at Tecmo for DOA5 and I hope we can come to an agreement with them. I recently began bothering Hector Sanchez over at Netherrealm studios about trying to get preview builds of Injustice, and we still have a strong relationship with Namco Bandai and they are preparing to release what I think will be the best game of this console generation with Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Currently we have 2 exhibitions lined up that will be at Raleigh that being Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, and Skullgirls. My personal goal right now is to get Persona 4: Arena on our circuit but who knows ;-P Obviously all these things are subject to change but I think it’s fair to try give an accurate idea of exactly what we are trying to provide at our events for the fighting game monsters.

    I hope a lot of VFers and Skullgirls players can make it out to Raleigh, but I wonder if it was the best decision to have that event as the "proving ground" so to speak. Was there no other upcoming MLG event this year that could have housed tourneys for those games?

    It's also on the same day as Summer Jam in PA which also has both those games (pot bonus for VF if entrants are high enough).

    I've read at VFDC about high ranked players, both on XBL and PSN, that seem to be cable pullers and cherry pickers.

    Nice to expose them as frauds.

    I swear in a few online matches vs Kage I couldn't punish some of those moves with a simple 2p. Gotta be pick and stick to 4+bar matches.

    Saw some heavy hitters in ranked today, I think Rodnutz is an Avenger and I saw LauVF from that old school VF site in the 56k days lol. Played a few highly ranked players and actually beat them but tbh I feel that they were at my level. I've been de-ranked from Defender 5 times but the ranking system keeps you on your toes.

    Online you have to count on some frames of input delay/lag.

    Rodnuts is a guy from VFDC so he must be pretty good.

    I've also been de-ranked from Defender to Barbarian. At least I didn't get demoted all the way back to Hunter like last time. It's all good as long as we manage to take two steps forward for every step backwards.

    There were some server issues last weekend, and I don't think it's been completely fixed yet. I had a disconnect last night and haven't been able to get back online since. I was connected to PSN the whole time, and my internet connection didn't crap out.
