    Sweet Alan Cross reference in the title.

    Jon's note kills me everytime. Also, FEEL THE RAFT!

    I got 8 video tapes here, only one is labelled (T2 3rd Strike - July 2001) but the rest except one is a Maxell video tape so it's all videotaped by Shawn (DrunkinB). One tape is the B4 tape I got from Doug (thx! BTW, I paid for the B4 tape but the Cannons never replied to my mail. lol, well one of them did and referred me to his brother who didn't reply). The other tapes are probably MWC, Texas and ECC. One tape is the first time MTL came (I don't think its T2) where DarkDragon destroys somebody with BBhood/Juggs and Banshee rips it up with Spiral. I'd be willing to give this to anyone if they promise to rip it digitally and share it to everyone. If not, I'll probably just buy a capture card and rip it myself.

    I think I also have the results for the first tourneys and pics somewhere in the old webpage we used to have. I'll post it later when I find it.

    I probably asked this before, but did you find your ECC4 tape? The one where BAS (?) was owning everyone with Guy in A3? I borrowed it last and I recall you mentioned you couldn't find it. I'm pretty sure I returned it, also I don't have it in my box but if you lost it I'm willing to re-imburse you for the original price you paid for it.

    If you grow up having to eat poutine and mayonnaise for every meal as well as
    having to write in both English/French all the time, you would be so traumatized
    your only pleasure in life would probably be tormenting other people by turtling
    out every videogame you play against them.

    I pray that one day I too can Turtle like the Canadian players do.

    Cause to be honest rush-down just doesn't work for me.

    You don't have to say anymore about it, but I will. I'm not hyped up nor crying
    don't get funny. All I was saying basically is you can't turtle everyone just
    like you can't rush everyone. I used to turtle when I played fighting games but
    I was a active turtle which is a dumb term for it but I didn't sit back a entire
    match and just look for mistakes I rushed too, plain turtling is fucking boring.
    Now I rush alot and it works against alot of people and against some people
    rushing isn't a good option. So my point is if that's your peoples' style, you
    better be able to adjust to different types of players cause soon or later
    turtling won't help your asses.

    Posted by Eternal Blue on 03:15:2002 03:18 PM:
    Turtling is the best. Here where I live, when good ppl play, its almost always a
    win by timeout. Just face it guys, turtling is too good. It breaks you down
    psychologically and its funny to watch the other guy almost start crying after
    you've been sitting and waiting for the whole round. The only bad thing about
    turtling is that your hand hurts cause you have to hold back the entire round.
    Other than that, its all good.

    Posted by CompassSaviour on 03:16:2002 07:18 AM:
    It's not like turtling is doing absolutely nothing. I think I'm an active
    turtle, as in I throw pokes, and occasionally jump in.

    Unlike MVC2 or Tekken, where if you turtle, you are pretty much dead.

    There's not a huge high low game in traditional SF games, so you can turtle as
    much as you want.

    Lol, Oh no, the *UNSTOPPABLE* overhead attack, oh no.......... impossible tactic
    for a turtler to defeat.

    ....... proceed to and link that into your favorite super.

    ............... overheads, does _anyone_ get hit by these?

    Freakin disgraces!


    does this qualify as canadian shame?

    Put those two in an anti-I-AM-CANADIAN commercial. They'd be like playing each
    other at dan's doing nothing, THEN some regular joe in the back is watching this
    and he's all like 'wtf is this shit?" and goes of to the nearest bar to order
    some American Beer all the while trying to cover up his team canada shirt.

    How can you manage turtling all day when an opponent can cause guard break after
    some point? How can you avoid that? Jump around on the screen with a the
    whole time? I don't see how that's effective..

    Well, I guess that's 'cause all I see is rushdown in the States.

    lol. you havent paid attention to philly tourneys lately, eh? u should have been
    at mm2k2, all people did was turtle against other.

    neway. to answer your question. people can turtle because there is less risk in
    getting guardbroken, unlike alpha 3. first of all, when you get guardbroken,
    your meter doesnt get reduced, it goes back to full right away

    and you can't always do big combos when you guardcrush. if they dont have any
    meter or anything, sometimes ill just let them hit me. OOH!. they get a fierce,
    big deal.

    if your guard meter decreased like in a3 every time you got guardbroken, people
    wouldnt be turtling as much

    that's one of the reasons i like a3, you're always doing something. there are
    rarely any moments when people are just sitting there, unlike cvs2. and turtles
    can be crushed

    but anyway i'm starting to ramble too much. bye now.

    Posted by hyt on 03:26:2002 05:05 PM:
    IIRC your Guard Meter does decrease when you get g.crushed... I'll have to check
    up the Guidebook on that one. What I know for sure is that you lose 10 g.crush
    points for every g.cancel roll and 15 for g.cancel counter. I forgot how many
    pts is the g.meter though :P

    Posted by Sabin on 03:26:2002 05:42 PM:
    hmm, really? I didn't know that. intresting. please follow up on that for me, if
    you can.

    but even though it gets decreased, it doesn't seem to change the flow of the
    fight THAT much, unlike a3..if you get guardcrushed once chances are your going
    to get GC'ed again..and again..and again..

    Posted by hyt on 03:26:2002 05:49 PM:
    Sure I'll look that up when I get home from work. In A3 you don't have the roll
    to create that extra option when you want to get out of a trap situation. Oh
    well, it also seems that when you get GCed in A3 the meter decreases A LOT.

    "Now, I'm going to mention the Montreal screw job. This may, or may not be accurate, as most of what I'm going to talk about is hearsay. But this is basically what I understood.

    JFL and Prez are in winners finals, and I was waiting to play the loser for 3rd. JFL mentions to Prez that he didn't know how to fight EX-Bison, but Prez did. So the deal was for Prez to lose to JFL, eliminate me, and then split the pot. Prez ended up destroying me, but when he went back to JFL and said "So we'll split the pot?" JFL ended up saying "No, let's play for it". They did, and Prez won.

    I gotten into playing streetfighter ,when i moved to john frasier highschool in grade 11. Before then, I loved video game but never actual owned a console ( super strict parents), and go crazy when I go to someone's house and see that they have video games there.

    When day of school at John fraiser, I didnt know anyone, so i decided to walk to the mall, and grab lunch. As i walked in and try to look for the food court, and i stumble onto skybox, lunch all forgotten, I spend the rest of my high school lunch and sometimes skipped class to go there.

    I mainly went there to play mvc 1. I sucked hardcore, and my quarters got sucked away by ken, calvin, and clayton. After 2 or 3 months, of semi button smashing, ken and calvin started to teach me the basic of the game. I end up learning spiderman and wolverine as my char. I still sux compare to them, but now that i actually learned to air combo and certain cheap strats, i was able to beat most of the other ppl that goes there. I end up playing 3rd strike while waiting in line to play marvel, since they always lines of quarters, and usually takes like 7-8 games before your turn. For some reasons, no one plays 3rd strike at that arcade, everyone was all about the vs games. There were 2 mvc1, 2 streetfighter vs marvel, 2 xmen vs street fighter, and 1 3rd strike game. Through out gr 11, I played the games there enough to be consider one of the good azn there, and ppl didnt want to put there quarters down when they saw that i was on the machine.

    Along came mvc 2. I picked spiderman since that was my main in mvc1. and picked juggernaut and guile as my other char, and sent when it became unlocked. I learned how to be cheap and was consider to be a top player at the acrade. then along came the rest of the sauga crew. They were starting to learn the game, and knew what they were doing. They all knew what the top tier char was, but somehow i was able to beat them with spiderman. After months of training their team, my spiderman, juggeranut, and sent combo was not working anymore, so the team evolded into team scrubs. but somehow i founded my spiderman, cable, and sent/ capcom was more effective.

    By the time cvs1 came out, i was basiclly losing almsot all my marvel matches, and decided to try cvs1. I loved it, and ditched marvel to learn it. And continue playing cvs2 when it came out, and forgotten about marvel all together.

    I graduate and went to waterloo. Where i found the cove, this is where i polished my 3rd strikes skills, and learn how to play dudley fom ben. Almost meet g3en there, and destroyed him with spiderman, in his early phase of his marvel game. Ocving many times with spiderman, wish i could still do that now. :wasted:
    I also meet kin in waterloo. answering to his reply of who goes to waterloo and play streetfigher. I think we end up playing for an hr, at a dollar of a game on cvs1, when cvs2 was already out. Kin though i was a super scrub and just used a sandbag team on me, when i started beating him alot, he switch to his ex bison, which i never played before. after 20 games later, and 20 bux later, i left, and only see kin during Toronto trny.

    Sauga sf scene was booming back home, while i was in waterloo, where there was no competition at all. i came back weekly to hit the arcade, and owned noobs, and played with the better players. During the summer, I learned that the sauga ppl were on a msg board, and was talking to ppl from tosf. There were playing on hosting a trny from skybox and ppl from tosf were coming. My first trny was a big disaster. I was overconfident of my skills, as i was consider top 3 in the arcade, after calvin and ken, in cvs1. After learning that the game was all about patience, and bread and butter combo, i reworked my game.

    Sauga began to host monthly weekly and dailies trny. I try to come back each week from waterloo to joined them. The earlier trny, ex_matt and I were in charge of running cvs2, while i belive it was gerjay and chris that was running marvel. Eventually ex-matt got too lazy to run it, and i end up running cvs2. This is the period where js master came each week. He comes and win marvel and cvs2, while me and calvin fight for 2nd place each trny. Eventually, the rest of the sauga crew catch up, since i was only able to play the game every weekend, and only to play trny, and became washed up.

    The first toronto trny i went to was t3. I was in dogberry car with afro rich, and 2 other ppl, i fogotten who. I enter only in cvs2, since that time, i pretty much given up on marvel, since i see ppl doing infinite and stuff, and i didnt have the patience to learn it, or the moeny. since i didnt own a dreamcast, i could only pratice in the arcade, which was busy all the time.

    First round was omindragon, and i end up roll uppercutting with sagat, and roll throwing with iori, and turtle with honda, for a 2-0 wins. All of tosf was shocked, as some no name guy from sauga just beated one of their decent players. 2nd round was someone from detriot, and i end up winning with ease. 3rd round was against wing, which nak destoryed me both games. i was send to losers. and waited like an hr for each matches. it was like 2 am in the morning, and dogberry wanted to go home. he expected taht everyone was done,( almost all of sauga went out the first round of loser or 2nd round of loser) and he was tire and sick of watching sf. I was busy playing cvs1 with afro rich and kin and i think hyt. I didnt notice the time. I told dogberry i was still in the trny. Dogberry was shocked, and ask how many ppl wehre left. I asked darkdragon, and he told me i was in the top 10. The very next game i lost to kam. Apperntly ppl didnt like downtown, and both tosf and sauga ppl were cheering me on. I think i die to a throw.:sweat:

    My first unlimted night at orbit was a fun trip. THe day started to a sf trny. and i wanted to join, but had work at bubble tease. So i got afro rich to call in sick for me, since it was my last day of work. After the trny i learned that there was a unlimited night at orbit. I told wing i drive him there, if he give me instructions. This was my first time on the highway by myself, but i didnt tell wing, cuz i dint want to freak him out. Lucky, or unlucky, there was major traffic, and i end up driving like 30-80 max on the highway the whole time. That where i also learned that to go to p-mall, u take the 404 new market and not the other exit, as wing lean me 3 times thru that exit, and then telling me to go back. I finnaly didnt trust him and took the other exit, and he realize taht this was the right way.

    The 2nd time i went to unlimted night, i drove team white boys. Chris and James. We end up 30 mins in the underground parking trying to find the exit. After hrs, there is only 1 exit open. and somehow when we were following hte signs, we keep following the exit signs taht leads to the door tat was close for the night.

    the 3rd and last time i went to unlimted was the most random things ever. I was coming home, when i bumped into gerjay, jigga, and anant i think. they told me it was unlimted night. i asked if they had room in their car. gerjay's mom was driving them there. I was also short 5 bux, and they told me they didnt had any extra money. i told them to wait 2 mins, i came back out in 1 mins, and told them i had the moeny. I walked to the hat store, which a frd was working there, and told him to paid me back 10 bux he owns me. But somehow after that night, sauga think i was some gangster, and i went and mugged someone for that 5 bux.

    During the summer of second year of unviserity, i was in hardcore mode for trny, travling to toronto for major trny, and going to sauga each weekend to play in the trny. I also was seeing a girl in scarbought, so i came to p-mall to play sf once in a while. I still didnt own a console, and my only way of pratcing was at the arcade, and hopefully with ppl and not the cpu. Skybox was not cutting it, skybox was not as pack as it use to, as ppl started to stay home and play on ps2, or going to arcade was not consider cool anymore, as they were less highschool kids gong to arcade as before.

    Then i discovered bbc. I missed a turn on derry and kept heading north, and somehow ended in braompton, bbc to be exact. I was like, wehre the fuck am i? so i decided to head to the mall and to ask direction and to eat something. There i discovered the wizard arcade there. It was like a time warp, back to highschool. The arcade there was huge, jsut like how skybox was, and there were packs and packs of highschool noobs. I went to play cvs2, and end up with 50+ wins steaks and left, as i remembe i still had to go home for dinner, and still have no idea wehre i was. Bcc became my new pratice ground. The kids there would continue playing u, regardless how hard you own them. noodleman, pete, gandi, steve, tehre were all there. None of them had any trny experince. At bcc i learned how to do a groove combo, and everything. since for 50 cents, i have hrs of free pratice on real players. I shared the sercet with ken and calvin, and the summer, instead of skybox, we travel to bcc to pratice up.

    Eventually I lost interst in sf, and interest in gambling, clubing, and raving began. Once in a while i join a trny, but wasn't as interested as i once was. I was disappointed that my skills got deteriorated so much, and that everyone also lvl up, and the gap was little now, and for some, they surpassed me. I missed out on the t trnys, and basic only play sf, when i need some time to kill while waiting for frds at the skybox.

    along came t5, or t6. justing decided to do pools instead of normal brackets. I end up with the most easiest bracket ever. The hardest players in my pool imo where freddyloo ( who i almost beat) and ex_matt.......(who doesnt even play tat game anymore) i came in 2nd and end up in top 16.........then i played prez, and got ocv twice. fun time.

    eventually skybox close down, which basicly close down the only place i play sf. I was not as close with the rest of the sauga crew. as they were not in my age bracket, and didnt go to school or chill much together, and never really ask to go to their casual or gathering.

    sauga sf basiclly became srk thread board, where ppl just talked, and hosted causal to play marvel. eventually that dies off from wow.

    somehow, sauga sf became to come alive again, even before sf4 came out, and with sf4 out, it seems sauga sf coming to full force again, or not. Calvin, ken, alex, been dragging me out to lovegetty to pratice sf4, and been bugging me about sf4 trny. so team fob from sauga may show up again for tosf trny.

    Nice thread. I never got into the tournament scene, so I dont' have much to contribute. I only played at Funland and would meet random TOSF players.

    When I started out, I would only watch players on the "good" 3S machine near the front of funland because I sucked and was afraid of looking bad in front of the pro players. I practiced on the scrub machine and would play on the front machine if no one else was there. I was there pretty often (a couple of nights a week) and eventually talked to a few players. People that I remember:

    Toan (short Vietnamese guy that played Ryu. Sometimes he'd pick Akuma, but mainly stuck with Ryu) - we became friends and hung out outside of Funland.

    Kei (short Chinese guy, kinda stalky, always ears a cap and fob glasses) - He was the best 3S player I'd seen and absolutely hated when you threw too much or did the same thing more than twice in a row. I think he got banned from Funland a couple of times. Never really gave me attitude but would sometimes roll his eyes or mutter stuff under his breath.

    Simon (Chinese guy that usually had a band-aid on his face) - played Elena exclusively, then switched to Dudley. Would always nod his head when you hit him or did a combo. Was a really nice guy with a good attitude.

    Drunk/High asian guy - he looked a bit older and played Alex. He was drunk/high every time I played him. I could never beat him at first and it took me a while before I started beating him consistently.

    A really big, tall black guy with glasses - played Hugo. Used to hand my ass to me when I sucked, but didn't see him much after I learned the game better.

    A tall black guy with a shaved head - played turtle chun. Turtled all day. Didn't do anything. I couldn't beat him at first but after learning his play style, it wasn't too much of a problem. By this time I had also switched from Ken to Necro.

    R_T_S_D - Eric. Akuma player. Nice guy, had a great attitude and never got mad while playing.

    Samir - One of the best if not the best 3S player I've met. He'd beat Kei and Kei would get mad and start cussing and threatening him, causing him to get banned from Funland.

    I'm sure there are many other players that aren't coming to mind right now, but I'll update if I remember any more.

    I stopped playing months before Funland closed and haven't played 3S since (well, a couple of games here and there but nothing serious). 3S was fun.

    Wow, that was an awesome read... Lots of history in our SF community. It's too bad I only found out about it this late...

    I Love it. Too bad Funland is closed now, I can't find time often to go to Lovegety. when there are people are actually there, I have to go because I have to catch the last bus home (Aren't most routes supposed to run till 1:00am now?) =(

    It's also nice to know the big names in the local tournaments aren't robots and are only human as well. Although they sometimes seem to be when you're an unknown. *cough* JayWang *cough*

    I'm definitely subscribing to this. I love these stories. Hopefully in a few years I'll have stories of my own to share.
    <quitjockinmystyle> everybody i wil approve what is cheating moves or not.
    Because very few ST players check SRK anymore. mostly it's the local facebook group and NHC.

    Hey BananaWeed,

    Do you remember the guy that plays Dudley too? i think he was Thai. Anyways, he used hang out with Kei and when they would play each other, its usually almost pretty even between them but Kei would beat him more times though. I think he won T3 in third strike, back "in the days". I could be wrong. He also plays twelve.

    OK so back in April I was supposed to wrap up 2003 covering THE LONDON TOURNAMENT and Christmas Eve at Gerjay's. Then... I don't know I forgot. In any case, someone just recurrected this thread so I've taken my tournament log (when I actually wrote them in detail) and have edited it with some perspective (italics).

    This one had been building up for a while so I was really looking forward to this trip. I leave around 10:30am and pick up Jason (Noodleman) who can't find his cell phone (despite my calling him not even five minutes earlier on that phone). We print off the directions we never used and Jason's mom says "call me when you get there." Of course Jason never calls his mom. We're on the way to BCC to get Steve (Original Gatsby) when I get a phone call.

    Me: "Hey Steve, where you at?"

    Steve: "Home"


    Steve: "HA HA! Yeah I know, I just got up."

    Steve may well be the WORST person to rely on when having to pick someone up. To put it in perspective, Jason and I live in the northeast corner of Brampton and Steve lives in the southwest. At this point he never had a license and we'd agree to pick him up from a Tim Hortons around Steeles & 410. The fucking guy was NEVER ON TIME! EVER! You tell him to be there and he shows at least 1/2 hour late if not way later. A lot of times I'd call and his mom would have to wake him up. But then he'd show up and he'd do the Steve laugh (people know what I'm talking about) and you can't stay mad. Fucking guy...

    FUCK! So we pick up Byron, who had been awake since 6am because he was too dumb to turn off his alarm clock. He looks like shit but coffee will fix that (he's left two Tim Hortons medium coffees at my house in two weeks. I swear he's going to die from coffee). We kill off 1/2 an hour waiting for Steve to get his ass in gear and head up to Sauga for Bryan.

    I got a chance to fiddle with my digital camera for the first time as Jason humiliates me over and over showing me how to use the most basic of functions I couldn't figure out.

    Me: "How the hell do you turn on this stupid light."

    Jason: "Maybe you should hit the button that says LIGHT on it."


    Anyway Bryan shows up and he's already eating McDonalds (every time I see Bryan he's eating fries). A lot of the new blood who's met Jiggabry may not know it but he used to be MASSIVE! I'd say Bryan was in that 300lb mark at one point in time. Back then he was an eating machine as opposed to the non stop walking + pot smoking machine he is now. If you want an effective diet that may or may not kill you, Bryan's walking weed diet will drop 100lbs+ in under a year for you. The trip was fun as Bryan gets into an arguement with the rest of the car over whether Red Apples are better than Green Apples. Then we pass an apple orchard and start going on about owners of apple orchards punking off younger owners. "What the fuck you know about apples? YOU AIN'T NOTHING BUT AN APPLE SCRUB!" Oh my God, twenty minutes of talking about apple scrubs and how you're not OG Apples unless you've been growing apples for ten years.

    We made London in an hour and 1/2, which is way less than I was expecting (I may go up a lot more now that I know it's so close). Please note I've never set foot in London again since this post in November 2003. What's the first thing we see? DARTH VADER vs OBI WAN FIGHTING WITH LIGHT SABERS ON THE CORNER! WHAT THE FUCK?! There were literally two guys completely decked out in Star Wars gear fighting with Light Sabres while waving to cars. I thought I was going to cry laughing. "Only in London." Then Steve spots this guy walking down the street with this brutal yellow hat and we're like "worst hat ever. Only in London." Jason do you remember this at all? I read my own log and can't for the life of me remember spotting a guy in a yellow hat. Everything else in the log came up instantly but this one incident. We scam the fuck out of the convenience store (their debit machine wasn't working so I decided to scam 2 batteries off Bryan instead of paying $10 for them) and finally reach the arcade. Or so we thought.

    First off the arcade we saw was closed down AND it was right beside a strip club. Byron was disappointed that it wasn't open until 3:00pm but I tried to explain noon strippers are horrible. Then we hit "Ace Arcade" but that's also the wrong arcade. However, I should say this now. WE MUST HAVE A TOURNAMENT THERE! Ace Arcade may be the most perfect location for a tournament. IT'S FUCKING MASSIVE, it has fooz ball, pool tables, a bar and tons of games. The only downside is that the controls suck. So basically they need to add CvS2, 3S and fix their sticks and it'd be the best arcade ever. Oh yeah, and there are people that sell drugs all day long so you'll always have a weed supply.

    FINALLY we hit the right arcade and Nassim is the only one there (real inspiring). We play a few casual matches (they have BCC's CvS1, CvS2, MvC2 and that stupid four playing side scroller that no one in Brampton touched except Pete) and then go to McDonalds. BRYAN FUCKING SCAMS MY FRIES while I'm on the phone and I have to get another one. MOTHERFUCKER! Slowest McDonalds ever. They had this freak of nature black guy with blond hair wearing a LIGHT BLUE LEATHER JACKET WTIH TASSLES! OH MY GOD! "Only in London."

    Thinking back, that arcade was honestly GOD AWFUL! It was more akin to a closet that just kept going. For some reason I didn't write down that aside from Nassim, we also met Eugene (his actual name was George but for years I've been calling him Eugene). You ever meet those people that are completely out of their mind but have juuuuuust enough marbles left in the sack that they're not committed? Yeah that'd be George. The most friendly scary crazy fuck you'll ever come across. On top of that, the bathroom in that arcade was tucked away in this odd corner. Steve and I got into a 15 minute conversation about having to defeat THE MINOTAUR that guarded the dark bathroom before being able to use it. Proper lighting is important people. It keeps nerds from making up Minotaur scenarios. As for the arcade itself, it had a lot of BCC's old cabinets and apparently they don't fix them in London any more than they fixed them in Brampton. I distinctly remember everyone trying to avoid the 2P side of the CvS2 cabinet because you couldn't low block. Nowadays you'd just borrow another stick, back then you were basically fucked if you started on "the wrong side" and you pulled the double switch on a loss. UGH!

    We finally wrap up around 8:00pm and Nassim takes us to this really great Pho Ben Than place and THE FOOD IS HUGE! Jason, Kin and Nass gets these bowls from I don't know... GIANT BOWL LAND and it's got about 20 pounds of noodles in them. HOLY FUCK! I had never seen actual Pho before as I was always getting Wendy's or fried chicken wings when I was at Pacific Mall. I get Curry Chicken and I wonder what the big deal about not getting rice is until I have a litre of curry sauce left over and get laughed at by the Vietnamese woman for asking for rice 20 minutes after getting my meal.

    The bar we hit was pretty nice but the live band FUCKING SUCKED! The waiter was useless and I just bought my drinks from the bar. I have no recollection of going to a bar in London. We managed to fit six people in my Altima (Lord knows how, good thing Bryan didn't stay because he's way bigger than Kin) and head back to Nassim's place. We played SF until God knows when while I watched MvC2 Grand Finals (SOOOOOO GOOD!). Nassim's place should be noted for THE DEATH STAIRS! We played casuals in Nassim's room but when Team Brampton went to sleep we were on couches in the basement. Unfrotunately it was like 4:00am and we didn't want to turn on lights so we talked down the stairs that you couldn't tell if they ever ended. Jason and I made it OK but Steve missed the last step completely and smacked up the wall. AWESOME! We headed back home the next morning pretty happy with the day's tournament despite the actual tournament being pretty brutal. How the fuck did Kin even get home?

    The London tournament was crazy. I still remember a few things about it and our struggling scene back then. I had to feel bad for JS, because George(Eugene) basically followed him around and heckled him the entire tournament. I remember Roger playing one of the bad regulars (imagine how bad someone has to be to have london consider them bad at that time) and smashed him numerous times with A-Blanka. Mihai lost to a kid who was terrible in 3s, and nassim and this kid hugged each other and jumped up and down. It was similar to homer simpson on the treadmill.

    Justin, do you remember t7? The car conversation about fighting a crocodile or a lion, Mihai forcing gerjay to play games with him all night even though he pleaded that he needed sleep haha. Good times.

    Hamilton SF,

    Anyways, Lime ridge Arcade was really busy up until a3/mvc2/3s was there, they got the new games, but nobody really played. The scene started to die when mvc2 came out. Everybody thought that the game was about big combos. Then some kid comes in (Vanny) and just chipped people to death. After that nobody would play him and just watch him play the CPU.

    I used to play at Limeridge every couple of days, if not more. I remember them getting most of the versus games all in a streak. One week they had Xmen vs SF, then the next week Marvel vs Capcom was already there. Then MvC2 finally showed up. I was a death metal kid then, long ass hair, and I used to have some damn good battles at that arcade. Made a LOT of people pissed off at me with Blackheart zoning. God I miss that arcade :(

    I remember no MSS teams, and nobody was doing any high level combos. Just basic BnB's all around :P

    Now the only 'arcade' left in this city is up at Mountain Plaza, and its mostly just older games, like Alpha.

    I absolutely love stories. The resurgence of this thread It reminded me of this thread: <- MUST READ!!!! from way back when. And also I decided to go through my SRK history and see if I could find other threads. found this one also:

    Hmm... I wonder if Kevin would be willing to share some stories here...
    <quitjockinmystyle> everybody i wil approve what is cheating moves or not.
    Because very few ST players check SRK anymore. mostly it's the local facebook group and NHC.
    PM me here or on facebook if you need a stick mod or repair. Same with arcade boards and superguns.

    I had to struggle to remember my srk login pword. All good memories. I think me and helio were the only down town guys from annex subs. That was my stopping grounds. Plus funland one quarter would last me almost a hour on 3s if kai wasnt there. i always use to beast on helio(gohan) in 3s mvc2 and kof98 then one day i just couldnt touch him and he told me he was playin with dudes in scarbz and going to tournaments at vf and va. So I joined him and started going to tournaments. It was pretty much like mr satan seeing the Z fighters for the first time. I met all the scarborugh people sauga people. Metro, orbitz, orbitz unlimited night, i think york u had an arcade at one points.

    3S was my game but played cvs2 for a bit then found out roll then throw gets you nowhere in a tournament, then i saw yellow s4 using p groove and figured i can parry just as good as him so i ex copied his P groove gief and walking 360ed the hell out of people.

    Out of the best parriers in 3s at the time pcat s4 and myself i guess i was 3rd best. I dont count the weird fobs. I remember people being surprised at a metro tourny when they saw my bait and parry skills. I remember
    marvins ryu kara throwing mix ups. I actually remember marvin not being that good when i first met him, then he just leveled up severly over the next few T tournys. Secret training i guess.

    Some tournament memories. I remember getting robbed by some hit box glitch against js master at orbitz, i had urien with no life left he had chun li and did a random sa2 wit chunli i jumped over and started pushing him to the corner. The last hit of the super hit me out of nowhere when i was clearly behind him and i lost the match. the whole crowd was confused. I remember nagata consoling me after and saying just leave it alone its a china mans game. till this day ill never rate js's chun, ever.

    I remember seeing mtl players for the first time at a tourny at vf. Grand finals cvs2 prez vs johnstar. The amazing thing about the match was that they both had A groove and no matter what johnstar did any time he decided to activate his cc prez would activate directly after. he did it on more than ten differrent occasions. I dont know what voodoo powers prez had but thats the best reaction timing ive ever seen till this very day.

    I remember kam and luu random guys who dominated with c groove and the whole mr.k conspiracy on srk. I seen kam grocery shopping a year ago. He looks exactly the same, but i doubt he could do a qcf motion to save his life now.

    The very last tosf tourny i entered was for s4 vanilla when it was still new someplace around sherbourne i was one of two gen players.

    I honestly didnt realize how long ive been in the fighting game scene until the past summer i was at A&C world playing helio in some cvs2 CCing like crazy painting up a storm wit bison and some s4 ae youngings were watching amazed at bison CCs one of the kids watching said holy shit bison can do that whats this game called?

    All good memories, but life goes on. Thinking about a serious come back for ultra .

    Wow didn't know you guys had such history in the game. i dont feel so bad losing to you now (nagata + rpg - i played you guys in hamilton about a month ago at super 1up)

    we did have an arcade in my town (from Cambridge) at SportsWorld (r.i.p.), but my brother and I were more console guys. I did get the chance to play at some awesome arcades around ontario (Mister Arcade in Peterborough, the arcade on queen st in toronto (name?), erin mills, Sauble Beach arcades, quinte mall in belleville)

    its a shame these places are not still around, its sad that now that we finally have the capacity to mobilize a community/events (internet), everyone chills at home to play online.

    There and back again: An ECC9 Log

    So we're on our way to ECC after meeting up with Roger's car at STC.

    We're making good time.

    And then, Tony decides to go pick up his friend Ed who all of a sudden decided to go too. So we tell Roger we'll meet up with him at the border.

    It takes us 45 mins to pick up Ed, who we find out later doesn't even play Street Fighter, doesn't join any tourneys, and spends the majority of the time passed out behind the pool tables at Eight on the break. More on Ed later.

    So we're off to ECC. Again.

    We reach the border after being stuck in Traffic before the border for about an hour. We call Roger who's at the Wendy's on the other side and tell him we'll be there soon. How wrong we were.

    We pull up the customs officer's booth.

    Customer officer: ID's please.

    We hand him our ID's.

    CO (to everyone in the car): Where were you born?
    Tony: Bangladesh
    Ed: Russia
    Wing: Hong Kong
    Ian: Umm I forgot what Ian said.
    Kin: Toronto.

    CO (to Tony): Can you prove you were born in Bangladesh?
    Tony: No.

    CO (to Wing, who is smoking): How old are you?
    Wing: 20.

    CO (to me): Do you have photo ID
    Me: No.

    So far we have a car with a person who claims he was born in Bangladesh but can't prove it, someone who is smoking but looks 12, someone from Russia, and someone with no photo ID. And it's memorial day weekend. Can someone guess what happened next?

    CO: Get out of the car and go to immigration.

    We spend an hour there explaining what we were doing and where we were going. When the officer asks tony what game he is playing, he goes "Capcom vs SNK 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, and GGXX, which is Guilty Gear XX." Jesus Christ, just say street fighter.

    Anyways, they end up tossing the car and opening everyone's bags. We had a bag from Roger's friend (Danny) because it didn't fit in Roger's car. Traces of weed. They let us go because it was only traces.

    So why were we stopped in the first place?

    Because Ed was wearing a T-Shirt that had a guy in a wheelchair smoking a joint. Good stuff. Then, as we are leaving, we pass by four officers, and they point and laugh at Ed's Shirt.

    Officer: Do you have any weed on you?
    Ed: Not TODAY.

    (Jesus Christ)

    Officer: What's in your pocket? Pull your hands out.
    Ed: Nothing.

    Ed: I know why you are wearing sunglasses, because you want
    to hide your eyes; so you can hide the truth.
    Officer: Son, my eyes are the truth. If we caught any weed on
    you, we would of charged you. Have a nice day.

    I swear to God, we were one step away from getting a full body cavity search. If you wanted to get raped by four guys, there are other ways to do it Ed.

    So then we leave for ECC. Does the ride get any easier?


    Do you know why? Because Tony has either ADD or a hearing problem. He has two volumes for his CD player: Super loud or super soft.

    So when we try to sleep, he starts blasting his music, and we all wake up. Then he'll put it really low, and we'll start to fall asleep again. And then, as if he forgot he likes his music loud, he pumps it up again. This went on for the whole freakin trip. Just kill me.

    Anyways, we're driving along making good time, following the map that Tony printed out from the Eight on the break website.

    We finally end up in Newark, New Jersey and start looking for Washington street and North Ave. We find Washington street and start driving up and down, looking for the intersection. No luck. What the fuck. We ask for directions. "Umm, North Ave doesn't exist." Oh good, this is going to be fun.

    Turns out, the tournament is in Dunellen, NJ, 20 miles from Newark. How we figured the tournament was in Newark is beyond me, but off we go to Dunellen. We finally arrive at the Break.

    Wow, the place is packed.

    Not because there's too many people, but because a lot of people were twice the size of normal people. Anyways, I start watching some random matches (because we missed the team tourny) and find out that Ricky Ortiz has chosen to be on a team by himself. R4 Sagat. And he's beasting on everyone. You'd be like "I'm hitting him! I'm winning!" Then he hits you with R4 Crouching fierce and you're done.

    That shit is broken. And he wins the tournament too. By himself. That kid is too good. Someone should sell him on eBay.

    So we meet up with the rest of the TO crew and head off to motel 6. We decide to stick 10 people in one room with 2 beds. And it ain't pretty

    I don't now if you know this, but after a full day being stuck in a car, people start to stink. And when you multiply that by 10, it starts getting fucking rancid. You could cut the stink in our room with a knife.

    Whatever, I played games all night anyways, I don't remember sleeping.

    Day 2 of ECC, Saturday:

    CvS2 and 3rd Strike Tourneys are today.

    Man, I'm hungry. What is there to eat? I see a sign for break steaks. What's a break steak? A philly cheese steak made at the break. Wow, how innovative.

    I swear I ate too many of those. I think I got owned by the break steaks more than I got owned in the Tourney.

    Anyways, they call my pool up for CvS2 (pool number #5). Oh goody! I get to play soon. So I wait around the DDR area. Half an hour goes by. An hour. An hour and a half. Somethings not right here.

    Then I hear : Ok, pool number #1 is starting soon.

    Why the fuck did you call my pool if I'm not up yet?
    Fuck that, I'm gonna eat another break steak.

    I finally play my match like 6 hours later.


    1st match. Kymah vs I forget.

    Toughest match I've ever fought in my life. The TO crew was gathered all around when they called my name up to the playing area. I hook up my DC gamepad, which is the sickest controller ever, configure my keys and............

    Wait. For my opponent. Who never shows up. And gets DQ'd.

    Whoohoo!!!! Fucking idiot. Who the fuck gets DQ'd at a tourny?!? They call your name, so fucking stay in the area. I was laughing.

    2nd match. Kymah vs Alex Nevarro.

    Ok, I had no idea who this guy was. But he beats Arturo Sanchez later on in the final 16.

    I pick C-Yun/Kyo/Todo-2. No really, this is my real tourney team.

    He picks C-Sagat/Ryu/Blanka. My yun tears through his Sagat, then loses to Cammy. Cammy beats out Kyo, but I was able to take her down to half life. Then Todo finishes her off.

    Out comes Blanka. Hop Hop RC Electrcity. Repeat x 999.

    Oh look, I'm dead.

    This is pretty much what happened the 2nd time too. My Yun takes out both Sagat and Cammy. Then Blanka takes out my team. Wow. Where did my life go?

    I hate Blanka. Because I suck. And because he's cheap. Anyways, losers brackets is where I am.

    Loser's match 1

    5...4...3...2...1...DQ!!!! I win again! lol stupid idiots getting DQ! Free breakfast.

    LM 2. Some guy I ocv'd with Yun

    LM3. Played Some guy from Ottawa. JR or something. Match went ok, had to switch to Sakura the 2nd time, because Cammy eats Kyo for breakfast. Lost to him with an inch of my life left.

    That's ok, I had fun, and showed people watching some Yun stuff.

    Anyways, I've been in this arcade for like 8 hours now.

    They called 2 pools of 3rd strike, but they hadn't called my pool yet or annouced my name. I thought I'd just go outside for a sec to make a phone call.

    I stroll back in feeling refreshed and energized.

    I see Ian.

    Kymah: Hey Ian, what's up?
    Ian: Umm...You got DQ'd from 3rd Strike.
    Kymah: HAHAHA DQ! idiots! hah.....wait...who got DQ'd?
    Ian: You did.
    Kymah: Shit.

    Yep, poetic justice. Goddammit, now I have to fight my way outta losers.

    3rd Strike

    Losers brackets Match 1:

    Some guy using Urien III.

    I hate Aegis. But some how I beat him with my Ghetto Yun SA III. All the matches were pretty close though. I had to activate Genei Jin and Shoulder tackle under his Mirror for the win. I thought that was cool. Someone was sitting behind us filming the match for the guy i beat. I turn around and there's this giant camera in my face. "Jesus!" I almost fell of my chair. I don't know why he was filming my face. I think they are going to find me and kill me in my sleep.

    Match 2 of losers.

    Lost to some guy's ken III in very close matches.

    So I'm all out for the tournys. Stuff happens, people qualify, then we go back to the hotel for some R&R.

    And then Jason Cole and Baltimore Chun walk into our room....

    In retrospect, I think they walked in the night before. When you don't sleep for 3 days straight, it all becomes one big blur. Anyway, that's not the point.

    Cole and Chun are two cool brothas. Not brothers, Brothas. Really down to earth. Cole's a laid back kinda guy. Baltimore? totally different spectrum. Especially when he's loaded. I woke up to a drunken conversation between him and Wing.

    Baltimore Chun: Oh dear God!, you are one skinny mother fucker!
    Wing: .....
    B-more Chun: I could fucking break you in two! Doesn't your momma feed you son?
    Wing: .....
    B: You know what you need?
    Wing: what's that?
    B: A black girl. A big black girl, who can feed you man.
    Wing: ....
    B: In fact, you're so skinny, everytime I see you, I'm gonna buy you a sandwich, and if you don't eat it, I'm gonna kick your skinny little ass!

    I decided to go back to sleep.


    US Food owns Canadian food bar none. A combo at taco bell canada is like 2 tacos, fries and a drink. Fries suck. In the us, taco bell doesn't have any fries. you get tacos on the side. Like I got a combo with a mexican pizza, 2 taco supremes and a big ass drink. A Taco combo has 2 tacos, 2 more tacos on the side and a drink.

    They also have resturants that don't exsist in canada. Like white castle. Combo #1 at white castle is 4 hamburgers, fries and a drink. Combo # 4 is 20 :eek: hamburgers and 4 fries. I'm suprised the entire US hasn't died off yet.

    *end sidebar*

    Day 3 of ECC (Sunday)

    Well, this is the day that Tony wanted to leave. First thing in the morning, because he claims it takes 15 hours to get back to TO. Tony, as long as you don't bring your crackhead friends, it doesn't take 15 hours.

    Anyway, it doesn't really matter because none of us qualified. But since I came all the way here, I wanted to watch the finals, so I was able to find a spot in Noodleman's van.

    I get a ride from Tony, because they deicde to grab a bite to eat from the break before leaving for Toronto. Not the greatest place to eat, but whatever.

    We arrive to find Nagata Lock II giving hellfire and brimestone to Demon Hyo. Apparently, Ian was knocked out of CvS2 by someone who had already lost twice. So Ian gets to play Josh Wong to qualify.

    Now, shouldn't that be great news? Something to cheer for? I think so. Tony, on the other hand says "screw you guys, I'm going home" and ditches Ian. What the fuck? So that means had anyone in his car qualified, they risked being stranded in NJ if they played in the final 16. Go play in traffic Tony.

    Anyways, Ian doesn't beat Josh Wong, and goes to sleep behind the pool tables. Oh, and Danny is there too. He's been there the entire 3 days, slumped in a feral position, as if he's been shot, Or maybe he had too many break steaks, I don't know what's worse.

    The CvS2 finals were quite exciting, especially with 4 Canadians in the final 16. Flo doesn't show up to his match with Alex and get's DQ'd. But Alex lets him play the match anyways, and destroys him. Flo, by the way, is huge. And he's not getting any healthier.
    When the Marvel final 16 started, it was so crowded that the directors starting taking away stools from the people watching, because there was no room. Flo HID his stool behind him. That shows 2 things:

    A. He's so fat he HAS to sit down all the time.
    B. He's so fat he can hide a stool behind him. They never saw it.

    But I'm getting off topic.

    I saw Veasna playing Justin Wong, and beating him with roll activate. That's text book Clayton. I saw Eric almost beat Justin Wong, and then almost getting OCV'd by him. Stop being scared of him. He won't eat you.

    Anyway, we went back to the hotel shortly there after.

    I'm staying in Team Brampton/Sauga's room. Which has no lock on the bathroom. I see Cate going to the washroom. Shortly afterwards, Gerjay goes towards the bathroom. Now I knew someone was in there, but I didn't know there was no lock. So I didn't say anything. And Gerjay opens the door. "Oh my God!" And then he runs away. Doesn't even bother to close the door.

    We had a random select tournament after, and Alex won that. By beating Roger. Who was so piss drunk, he kept laughing everytime he JD'd something. Actually, he laughed at everything. And still almost beat Alex.

    Monday morning, time to go home.

    That's pretty much the end of the road. We pass by customs with no problems this time, because out car has 3 asians, 2 caucasians, 1 black guy and a partridge in a pair tree.

    We play various games to pass the time, like the animal game, where you say an animal and the next person has to say another animal that starts with the last letter of that animal, i.e.

    Kin: Anteater
    Gerjay: Rabbit
    Noodleman: Tarantula
    Justin: Umm....Animal

    And the food game, same thing, just with food:

    Noodleman: Pop
    Justin: Pea
    Kin: Apple
    Gerjay: Umm.... Edible Food

    Man, there was just too much things that happened. Can't remember them all. Anyways, I had a good time. Everyone should go to at least one National in their lifetime.

    Well, it's getting late boys and girls.

    Speaking of girls, Empire Arcadia girls are like the town bicycle.

    Rice and Gravy.

    York Tourny Log

    This is by far one of the best tournys I've been to in awhile, so I decided to log it.

    Team Tourny

    Noodleman and I decide to team up with A-groove. Since it's only the two of us, we each have to pay $7.50. I give him a $10, and this is how the team name "you owe me $2.50 is born". Then Jiggabry wants to join us as well. So he owes both of us $2.50

    On to the tourny.

    vs. Team Hammer (Veggiebob2002/Fobhunter/WB!)

    Bryan basically waits for Fierce punch with sagat and kills the first guy. Then I come in with Todo and grab cc everyone to death until I get to Jaime, who plays Chun-Li2 as the anchor. I lose, then Jason comes in and.........gets combo videoed. Wow. That should go in the trailer. Wait, it wasn't taped. So I just switch to Mai, who counters chun-li, and Jason doesn't get to play Jaime. EVER AGAIN.

    vs. Team Cocky (Flightwing/JS Master/Ratio1beatdown)
    Roger is playing MvC2, and Wing and Eric, being team cocky, decide to play us anyways, with Eric saying we won't make it to Roger anyway. So Bryan comes in and punches the shit out of nak, leaving her with little life. Then I beat wing with a jump-back fierce, and then Eric comes in with Cammy. And gets cc'd and command grabbed to death. All I hear is Wing and Eric shouting, in the fobbiest and most annoying voices ever, "WOGER!!!! WOGER!!!! YOU NOW COME!!!!! YOU ARE PLAY NOW!!!!!" They hold back on the stick until Roger is able to scramble to the machine. He kills us, but I still thought it was funny.

    vs. Team Unleashed Fury (Nagata Lock II/Ack/Gerjay)
    Best 3 out of 5.
    1st round. Bryan plays Ack first and manages to kill him everytime with Sagat punches. Then Nagata comes in with Kim. And I rush the fuck away with Mai. He doesn't touch me once during the first round, and all I hear is "FUCK!!!! ARRRRGGGHHHH!" Then I take out half of Gerjay's A-Blanka. And then we lose.

    2nd round. Same thing. Bryan Punches, Ack Dies, Bryan get thrown, I run away, Justin snaps, I take out half of blanka and we lose.

    3rd round. We were actually able to win this match because I was able to put Gerjay down to 25% health.

    4th round. And then.....Justin switches to Vega. I hate vega. Vega claws me for free. And we lose.
    Fun tourny though, we got 3rd.

    Tekken 5
    I'm so go at this game that I......
    Get peaced out in 2.

    R4 Challenge!

    This was the absolute highlight of the tourny. Everyone joined. Ack, Stephen...even Antoine.

    Justin tells me to pick a character right away, so I'm like "Umm.......C-Yun"


    Now what happens next will forever be known as "the journey". It's the story of how a C-Yun climbed all the way to 5th place. That's right, C-Yun. Taking out Blankas, Vegas, Cammys, in the most exciting matches possible. Shall I describe them? No. You will have to get the vid.

    edit: found them on youtube.
    vs.Poke Guy vs.Darren vs.ACK vs.Gerjay vs. EX-S vs.X-Pac786 vs.RPGv2

    Marvel 2.

    I only remember 2 matches:

    vs. Noodleman.
    I play Amingo/Storm/Tron Bonne. All I can say is Amingo/TB Satellite is broken, and noodleman didn't have a real good AA assist. Does so much damage, and then I just DHC to storm and runaway.

    vs. Nagata Lock.
    He picks commando, and right away I know I'm gonna have problems getting in. Well guess what? The controller is kinda busted on my side, and I can't really jump forward, so every time he calls out commando, I'm safe. Again, Amingo-Satellite does a lot of damage. It comes down to Storm/T.Bonne vs Storm/Command. I randomly hailstorm, the screen freezes, and I see Justin's Storm doing Tri-Jump Fierce, and commando doing AA. So I mash the shit out of the machine and win. Giving me a 4th place finish.

    Oh yeah, there was 3rd strike too. Umm.....We lost. To get a sample of my 3rd strike skills, here's a snippet of a conversation I had with Antoine.

    Kin: "Hey Antoine, my Urien's pretty good, huh?"
    Antoine: (pauses)....."this conversation is over."

    So the tourny is over, and we all shake hands, and some of us go to kbbq. And pretty much just talk shit all night long.

    However, RPGv2 gets his ass handed to him by Fobhunter, because Rey is sitting on one end of the table, Fobhunter and the other, and Rey just keeps talking for the longest time, and Fobhunter is just like "uh-huh, yup, yeah, got it" And then Rey ends off with a question. Complete Silence. A tumbleweed goes by. And then Fobhunter says "Dude, I didn't hear a single word you just said"...........AHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!!!!!. Good lord, that was better than Justin engulfing Gordon at the last kbbq.

    Anyway, to those who went, it went well, the rest of you can go to.
