    Well if Sanwa is the new standard I'll have to keep up with the times. My mistake, I had no idea they had switched.

    I think it's not so much sanwa is the standard now, more that it really depends on the event and arcade which one you get. Since sanwa is the standard in post-sf4 games I suspect it'll keep encroaching on our glorious seimitsu turf though.

    Those gotta be sanwa buttons. Seimitsus would not be more mushy.

    I'm not sure if it's a matter of feeling slighted or just disagreeing with my autonomy but it's senseless because the bigger picture gets ignored. The objective is to bring 3S back into a national level event where people WANT to come out and compete. To do that, I had to get a good distribution of notable players to be on board with this exhibition, and I think I covered a good range. How fucking great would it be to have 3S back on a national scale?

    For the longest time seimitsu was the standard, but last year coop changed to sanwa.

    Personally, as long as it works I'm money.

    it's such a picky thing.
    more important than that is how beat up the sticks/buttons are.
    Play more.

    Concerning the sticks, I've put in a lot of back and forth with the hardware owners to ensure the event will have proper streaming/commentary. As such, I'm less inclined to make a hefty request as new hardware for all 4 setups when factoring that their setups all work fine (I've played on all of their cabs over the past year a handful of separate occasions with no complaints). Don't hold your breath :)

    but I also took this chance to slip my name in among the greats and call it "3s Titans". This is so I can massage my own ego and hopefully people look up to me like I'm the same league as Yuuki, Nica and 5star.



    Yeah, I get the picture!

    Changing sticks would be too difficult. Requires totally different control panel.

    Oh right I totally forgot about this. When we bought our cab it came with Sanwa control panels and we had to do some soldering to get the Seimitsus to fit correctly. Alternatively we would've had to go track down the Seimitsu-compatible version of the control panel. So yeah whatever is in the cabs now is probably what we got.

    Damn this sold out too.
    However it was a risk since Jordan Brand T-shirts/clothing anything are some of the worst fitting and sized wrong anything in the universe. Some other Chris Paul ebay Jordan shirt 2011 All Star game in LA thing I do have is terrible.

    Out of 3 different colors of the same shirt, this one made the "3S" of "CP3" readable, legible, and prominent. And this probably came from some Nike outlet leftovers. Everyone wanted this: CP3 "BEL AIR" nonsense $35 rainbow shirt.
    Storytime..

    But how many people actually remember the events of this exhibition unless you are a 3rd Strike historian? Just about nobody knows this even happened,
    I remember reading Watson express his regrets for taking Vic's spot
    Anyways, placing top 8 here was important because I was only one of 3 Americans to place top 8 alongside Justin Wong and Hsien Chang. The year after, Evo was announcing another 3s Exhibition and obviously Justin and Hsien were invited as team captains. I felt a little slighted and used my voice to get on the USA team of 5 but I also knew deep down I didn't deserve it at the time. I didn't practice much and I didn't bother to stay at the top of my game, but my ego got the best of me and I felt that my past performances should validate my spot on the team. Instead of choosing me, the SRK staff chose a Dudley player by the name of Vic Vance. Had they chose someone else I probably wouldn't have gone through the extremes I did to make sure he wasn't a captain. A couple of my good buddies despised Vic and I figured I was killing two birds with one stone so essentially took his spot. We had actually worked out a deal to where we would have a playoff to see who earns the spot.

    So I drove up to Family Fun Arcade and warmed up a bit. I was also watching him play and boy oh boy, dude was beasting. Myself on the other hand, I was playing like trash and the rust wasn't going to come off in 5 minutes so I pulled a move I regret to this day. I just said F this and took the win, no playoff, just drive home and said it's mine. Vic played his ass off for almost an entire year and rightfully earned a spot on the team. To this day I have never told him face to face that I am sorry, but if I did see him I would. Before heading to Evo in 2005 I told his friends if he showed up he could have the spot because I felt guilty and because I wasn't in good enough game shape to represent the team. Well, he didn't show up and I proceeded to get perfected left and right by Team Japan....... Yikes..... Got my ass kicked worse than ever before and I deserved it. So Vic, I would like to publicly apologize to you for taking away something that I know meant a lot to you at the time and although I could never make it up, and at least know I was embarrassed not only by my performance but also for letting my ego get in the way of doing what was right. I'm sorry man.

    Another funny idea I had was bringing in dancers and porn stars to wiggle it in a cage or something. Just an idea to spice up the tourney as I had a close friend at the time who's older brother was making a ton of money selling non-mosaic japanese porn DVDs and also had the rights to a few popular stars at the time. Kind of a null fact but throwing that in there for your entertainment : )

    Looks like our team is the least documented on the Internet even today, no website, we played in this half court messed up gym, buddhist temple, and had to finish while this taiko drum team wants us to hurry up and get off the court.

    I've updated the rules just a bit more yet again. Huge changes surrounding the Titans event.

    -Removal of all challenges
    -Removal of "qualifying spots" from singles
    -Addition of qualifying event on Friday night ($30 entry, standard format)

    Essentially, there was too much contention about the qualifying spots being a prize in singles. Singles is singles, it was never intended to be a qualifier. But because I wasn't clear, people took it as a qualifier and so wondered why Titans weren't barred from entering. As a compromise, I have added a mini high roller event on Friday night, and will be awarding the 2 spots there (Standard 65-25-10 payout also applies). The Titans cannot enter the qualifier event.

    The time that would've been used for challenges has been shifted to the qualifying event, and so challenges have been removed. Aside from the time constraints, challenges were added in to appease the dissension from anyone who felt my picks for the Titans were not correct. But ultimately, that ends up undermining any respect that the Titans rightfully deserve, and so I've removed it altogether. I feel like it's the right thing to do.

    I pray to god I never "remember the titans", or at least none of the debate pertaining to them. That said I pre-registered for this event. 42$ later...here I am (I get it there is so much that goes into a tournament and so on... just sucks as I know none of that money aside from that extra 10$ is doing a damn thing to help the 3S players if I had to hazard a guess. Surely it will just bring more "Hype" to all the other awful games surrounding us).

    Nonetheless looking forward to playing this wonderful game with real people! Hope there is something going on before now and then as I sure as hell would love to play for real at least once or twice before now and then.

    Awesome stuff Andrew. While it's a shame that the event had such an "energetic" discussion, ultimately I think it led to good things. Following Andrew's lead, those of you who are definitely attending, I will remind you that pre-registration is not only good for you, but also REQUIRED for the event. It is up at:

    http://thefallclassicnc.com/tfc-registration/

    As for the bump, I have made changes to the Titans event. It will now be 2 FT10s exhibitions - the contenders are 5star vs Yuuki and Ryan vs Nica KO.

    So no round Robin? Why nica vs Ryan and yuuki vs 5 star and no other combinations? First! Haha

    Seemed like a sarcastic jab, but I'll answer anyway. No round robin. 5star specifically wanted to battle Yuuki, and New York doesn't feel like Ryan's any stronger than their own players, so Ryan vs Nica has a little more pride behind it. It's going to be hype!!!

    Seriously? After all that? What even prompted this 50th change?
  • exodusexodus anti-vid scrub advocate! Joined: Posts: 2,078 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Nica KO made a post on Junkies essentially saying that he didn't like the Titans format because he felt that the Titans should have to earn the spot fairly (somehow, up to 15 years of history isn't enough merit). It was a bit harder to run the event in good faith if one of the people participating speaks out about it, so I had to change it again...I know it's been wishy washy, but I think this is the final change.

    I was hoping to see ryan destroy everyone with that stupid bitch chun li and then proceed to destroy everyone in the round robin. I thought the shorter sets would be cool and I'm a little confused because there's pretty much no way in hell yang is beating chun li 10 times unless ryan is drunk.

    We'll certainly find out won't we? :) Ryan still has the opportunity to bash everyone's skull in in Singles. I really liked the Round Robin aspect; I plan on bringing it back next year (with the winners of this year receiving their spots).

    dawg... wheres Yuuki vs Nica?? You can't NOT have that on such an occasion where they're both finally at the same place
  • exodusexodus anti-vid scrub advocate! Joined: Posts: 2,078 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Perhaps if they both win their FT10s, I could propose it. But I think 3 FT10s is overkill, and the other matchups were requested. Had it been a single FT10, Nica Yuuki would've worked since there was buildup leading to it, but the players involved requested these matches specifically.
