    Sup luvselina4. Yup, some of us know each other from playing past Capcom games like 3s and CVS2, some people on here I've yet to meet.

    The 'pros' at Bugis are indeed very good, but I believe that SF4 is an accessible enough game to learn the basics really quick. Which characters you play? Maybe I can hook you up with the respective 'pros' of that char so you can learn from him.

    yo~ icic.. i used to play cvs2 too~ Nvr liked 3rd strike though dun ask me why lol.

    Hmm I usually play Ryu and Blanka... tbh the timing for the combos are quite tough to make them all connect.

    What characters do u play?? =)
  • YagamiYagami NOT a KOF fanboy Joined: Posts: 235
    You played CVS2? Perhaps we might have played...I played K Maki, Rock and Hibiki back in the day.

    I wouldn't worry too much about combos. I'm assuming you're having problems with FADC cancel and link combos right? Don't worry, many of the 'pros' screw up their combos as well. Just keep practicing, there's no other way.

    I play Viper and El Fuerte.

    hi sorry to sidetrack abit.

    Do you guys happen to know if it is possible to get sanwa or seimitsu parts locally?
  • YagamiYagami NOT a KOF fanboy Joined: Posts: 235
    Jeremy knows the sanwa dealer here. I'll ask him for you.

    Just saying hi since Yagami asked me to.

    I play at Bugis and PS and if you see someone scrubbing it up with Rufus, making people shake their heads wondering how they lost to random Ex-Messiah kicks, yes that's me.

    Wish I could make it this friday but I can't. Prior arrangements. Will definately try to make it to future tourneys though.

    And yes, the Kiasu Singaporean "Why enter if I can't win" mentality pisses me off too. I'm thinking that's probably why the Versus League died out. Damn shame.

    Props to Yagami for keeping the tourney scene alive.

    Hey yagami. Srry didn't come back to check this thread for quite a while. Yea I do believe we may have played waay back during the days when CvS2 was hot :) Can I register for the tourney on friday itself? Its this coming friday right? 15th Jan? And you're right.. I'm having some major problem coming out Ryu's ultra after a DP -> FADC cancel.... everything comes out perfectly except the ultra LoL. BUT I can do an ex-fireball -> FADC cancel into ultra without a hitch. Definitely a pyschological problem I think lol.

    Heeeyy~ I think I've seen u around. Did you play at PS last saturday? Were you the dood wearing striped shirt and specs? A little bit on the plump side? Cos there was only one Rufus player that night and you fit the bill perfectly.. you kept throwing random ex-messiah kicks especially on wake up hahaha. There was a heavily tattoo-ed dude there as well, his zangief is wicked man.

    Well anyways if you're the person that I'm talking about I'm the tall skinny Ryu player. I asked you to continue playing even though I put a token on your machine after you lost cos my cousin was already playing :looney:


    Actually tbh, I'm kinda like the kiasu sgrean too.. but its not about not being able to win the tourney but more like if I enter the tourney and I meet a super pro in the first round wouldn't that be kinda sad lol. I know there's always an outside chance of winning and I would like to see how I stand against the best after practising for so long but in most cases I'll lose and I can't go furthur in the tourney anymore :arazz:

    Srry for the long post =P

    It's a shame that the SF4 machines are not set to freeplay mode for the tournament. I'll try to make it down with my scrubby Guile (or maybe Chun?)

    Don't remember wearing a striped shirt and am in denial that I am a bit on the plump side, but yep, think that was me.

    You were the Ryu/Boxer player and your cousin was the Blanka right? And yes, I remember you missing dp> FADC> Ultra a bunch of time (kept on coming out as Ex Shoryuken instead).

    Solid Ryu play and I look forward to playing you and your cousin again. And I promise not to taunt when your cousin turtles up :sweat:

    well I'll admit ur not plump actually.. just that its a little easier to describe u that way.. I bet those are muscles underneath :wgrin:

    yea i'm the Ryu/Boxer player lol.. My boxer sucks atm cos I just started using him like a week ago so his combos don't come naturally to me yet. Aww man dun remind me of those failed Ultras lol.. happens everytime actually :rofl:
    Solid Ryu play and I look forward to playing you and your cousin again. And I promise not to taunt when your cousin turtles up:sweat:

    Thanks.. your Rufus solid too.. those dive kicks and random ex-messiahs are bloody irritating lol. I din know you taunted my cousin but yea he's a hardcore turtle player sometimes lol~ Not to mention Blanka turtles are really tough to play against.

    Hope to see u at PS sometime again dude.. I'll probably be heading there today and tomorrow (Sat) at about 9+ or 10pm. Will be going to Bugis first to check out the tourney. Hope I can register for it. :rock:

    Thanks for the tourney Yagami. It was really fun! We definitely need more of such stuff again.

    P.S: Is El Fuerte your main?
  • YagamiYagami NOT a KOF fanboy Joined: Posts: 235
    Hey good to see you in the thread Acidic. I always find joy playing with people who post on SRK. You may not be the best player around the block now, but I'm sure you'll get better real quick because you read up and are in the know as to what's happening with SF globally. =)

    luvselina4: Thanks for coming to the tourney! I don't think I got a chance to talk to you, or if I did, I didn't know it was you. What name did you register as and who did you use?

    I'm glad you liked the tourney! It being fun is the highest compliment I can get, that's all I was aiming for really. I'll definitely be hosting the next one very soon.

    And yes, I alternate between El Fuerte and C.Viper, depending on who I'm confident with on the day. These days I feel my Viper's alot better tho...but I've got a bag of new Fuerte tricks I wanna try out next time I'm at Bugis so we'll see how that goes haha.

    Haha yea the whole tourney was fun~ I liked it being set in group stages.. gives u more chances to qualify for the round robin matches. When will the next one be? I read your blog and it said 2 weeks time.. should be on a friday night right?

    You did talk to me actually, you asked me where I played cos you hadn't seen me around b4 lol. I registered as Hanyi and I used Ryu. Was one of the last few to register lol.

    I see, I watched a couple of vids of your C.Viper and tot it looked a lot stronger than your Fuerte but that being said, your Fuerte's no push over too. Look forward to seeing ur new moves the next tourney =)

    My first post here, though not my first visit.

    I play at J8 most often, and a little bit at AMK.
    Plays Zangief mainly. I just started playing, so most people wouldn't really have seen me.
    Been losing to Sagat visitors from other arcades hahah.

    Known as Divine Artistry in a certain forum, and Artist in the others.

    I'm intending to play SF4 on Xbox Live as well.
    Came to post here because of the comment in the SF4 SG Blog.

    Anyone that I might have played with?
    I only played the last 2-3 weeks.

    Might drop by to play in the upcoming tournament in Bugis.

    - Ahh, I definitely remember talking to you. Thanks heaps for coming down, it's really nice when people from different arcades come together for an event. I look forward to seeing you again this Friday which means...

    The next tournament is confirmed! I'll be updating my blog in a few mins so do check that out for any details, otherwise the format, time and place is the same as two weeks ago.

    The Artist
    - I saw your comments on my blog, and I'm definitely looking forward to exploring ways our communities. First up I'll register on your forums as soon as I can, and I just wanna say I really appreciate the coverage that you're giving my blog on your forums. I'm looking forward to more arcade+console tourneys around Singapore!

    I'm looking to form a Singapore-wide community consisting of arcade, Xbox and PS3 players. As for bringing everyone into the BOB forums, I'm just worried that it will be hard to get PS3 users to feel 'at home' at a BrotherHood Of the Box forum if you know what I mean.

    What do you think of a Singapore-wide SF4 forum? Maybe you can moderate the XBOX Live subsection? Just thinking out loud.

    Haha, I don't own the forums, its just that they just started a new SF4 sub-forum, so I'm moderating it. Happened to saw your blog and the need for a new forum.

    Hee. The BOB forums have PS3 sub forums.
    I think we could have our very own SF4 forum for SG players, but I think the base is not very strong for a start.
    I suggested the BOB forums partly because its well maintained by a lot of people, over the last 5-6 years. Also, many of the regulars work in games magazines and companies, and many retailers as well.
    The server seldom encountered problems, and there are many useful functions.
    Perhaps it'll be good if you and some of your close friends register, then try it out, then decide on it. Unless you are preparing to create your own website, thus hosting your own blog and forums, this would actually help you more because those free forums have lots of maintenance stuff, and is usually less user-friendly. Hee.
    I have a few forums for my guilds/clans/teams in games, usually they end up too sparsely inhabited. Thats why I was thinking of BOB as a good alternative.
    I am also able to get SG Cardgames to host a unbiased SF4 forum, but I think its not as relevant as BOB.
    It would be great if you can get HWZ or Singtel to host, as the forums are already well innovated over the years. I'll be glad to help if required.

    By the way, i'm not a console player, rather an arcade player. Haha.
    KOF player from AMK FL in the 90s.

    Anyway, these are just my suggestions and reasons, you guys try it out and let me know. Hee.
    Will drop by for the tournament this friday. Probably register as Artist.

    I think once you have enough people (100 and more) a forum hosted by your own website would be good. You can also update the website instead of the blog. I think that is so cool, and you can always embed videos from youtube, so it won't be eating up your bandwidth. Hee. Maybe you can get all tournament go-ers and participants and maybe some of the viewers to register with you. Just an afterthought. Haha.

    I just wanted to say Yagami, that I too subscribed to your blog and am very interested in the Singapore SF4 scene! Though I'm not in the area, around it, or even remotely having want to BE in the area, I am still very interested in over seas play....

    All in all, thanks for running that blog so that people like me can see how other countries play!

    Hey Mickey, if there's no lag playing with you over Xbox Live, you may wish to play with us Singaporeans when SF4 is released on X360.

    These are the Gamer Tags available, all Singaporeans.
    Of course, if its laggy, then its too bad.

    Click here for the list of Gamer tags of SG Xbox Live players for Street Fighter 4

    Hee. Hope this helps.

    Hey Mickey,

    I just want to say I share your passion for SF in different parts of the world. It's what makes SF so special eh? No matter where videos etc come from, it will always be the same common platform, SF that you see and read people talk about.

    Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I've checked yours out too, good commentary+analysis there. Hopefully in the future, we'll have a chance to bring our communities together as the world grows smaller and SF grows bigger. Will you be going to Evo this year btw?

    I think it would be TKA Virtualand at Bugis Junction.

    It is quite central, but still considered near as Singapore is pretty small and the transport pretty efficient. You may have to take transport to one of the trains stations (subway), and the trains ride to Bugis should take you under 20-25 mins.

    Of course, should you require more detailed information.
    Go to www.gothere.sg , enter Changi Naval Base as your starting point, and Bugis Junction as your destination.
    As Changi Naval Base is a military base, it may not be shown on the map. Hence, you may be required to give a road name, on which is convenient for you to get to.
    The entire journey via public transport shouldn't take you more than an hour at max.
    The cost should be around $2-3 SG dollars, or around 1-1.5 Euros.

    Should you take a taxi, the fare would probably be around $10-15 Singapore dollars, or 5-7.5 Euros. It'll vary depending on the timing.
    It'll only take you 15-20 mins for the entire journey though.

    Have fun during your stay in Singapore, its somehow like Hong Kong, but almost everyone speaks English here. Feel free to ask around for directions, I'm sure many will be able and pleased to help you out on your visit here.

    Thanks The Artist:wgrin:


    man, virtualand is an awesome arcade experience. I didn't even realize how many fighting games they had in there. It took us awhile to find it's exact location until we ran in to the junction spot.

    i saw and had a chance to play s4 finally. What was goin on up stairs? i couldnt really see exactly what game was being played, but it looked somewhat like a puzzle game:confused:

    also, gg's to the guy's i played in marvel. Man you guys put up hands down tight matches. It took me about 5 games to finally adjust to the controllers there:sweat:

    you guys play like we do in the states. I'll try to make it there again tomorrow early around 12ish or 1 maybe 2. I hope to see you guys there again. gg's and nice matches. i need to tighten up my game play the next time we play.:rofl:

    Hee. Welcome.
    Glad that you enjoyed your stay in SG and had fun at the arcades.

    If you guys are able to go to the arcade mentioned on this friday, Friday the Thirteenth, there's a 2v2 tournament for Street Fighter 4.

    You guys might want to check it out.
    For more details, you can visit Yagami's blog, he's the one who started it all.
    http://sf4singapore.blogspot.com/

    Its not restricted to Singapore residents, tourists and visitors around the world are welcomed!!!

    i also checked out Yagami's blog and that blog is nice. very detailed and explains everything you need to know about the fighting game scene in sg. Thanks Yagami for having that up for viewing, wasn't for that blog, i may have not known about virualand junction spot. the blog actually inspired me to hit that arcade specificly up. thanks again Yagami for your enormous work in supporting the scene.

    Hey Desert Fox,

    i'm ken, one of the singapore marvel players. I don't think you've played me though, because i'd surely remember if i played against someone from outta town. Anyway I think it's been mentioned already, but hope you had a good time here and I really hope you can come down again (i'm itching for comp from overseas).

    what teams do you play btw? and maybe you could tell me who/which teams you played against? probably can give you a rundown/introduction to our scene and the top players (there's only like the same few unfortunately,haha)

    and lastly, changi naval base? dude you with the navy or sth?

    Even though I got my copy of SFIV for the PS3, still going down to the arcades because that's where the competition's at! Well, actually I just haven't got a arcade stick yet, lol. But nothing beats lagless gameplay and face to face competition yeah?

    I usually go to Plaza Singapura and Ang Mo Kio arcades.. where do you guys usually go? Will like to meet up and learn from you pros!

    Hey Desert Fox,

    i'm ken, one of the singapore marvel players. I don't think you've played me though, because i'd surely remember if i played against someone from outta town. Anyway I think it's been mentioned already, but hope you had a good time here and I really hope you can come down again (i'm itching for comp from overseas).

    what teams do you play btw? and maybe you could tell me who/which teams you played against? probably can give you a rundown/introduction to our scene and the top players (there's only like the same few unfortunately,haha)

    and lastly, changi naval base? dude you with the navy or sth?



    what's good Ken,

    Well, the setup they have over there for ruffly all the games, you can never tell who you've played against unless they come over and tell you. i was there on saturday(7th) and sunday(8th).

    yes, i will come down there to visit you guys again, but it wont be till probably mid summer or early fall.

    the people i played? well, on saturday i played against a variety of teams. the team combanations i remember vividly were:

    msp, storm/cable/cap, storm/sent/cyclops, scrub, mag based teams.

    But after awhile, i saw mostly mag based teams like msp and msc. that was saturday.

    sunday i saw someone that played me only with mag/cable/psy. he was also pretty fast with mag's and had a good cable.

    the other guy i played against used rouge/storm/tron which he played very smart.

    then the rest of the time i played s4 which got most of my time and money:wasted:


    yeah, i'm working a gs (gov) job so i'm all over the place. the cat i was with is in the navy and knew some people out there.
    pringles all day...
