    Thanks for getting out the word brothaman, I was busy for most of the day yesterday. I am down to host today, but let me know ASAP LionX if you can make it. If not, I'm thinking of just rolling over to golfland - I hear people will be there this afternoon/evening. Gots to practice up for NCR!


    edit: Post if you want to come over Wednesday.

    honestly, i'd rather go to sam's place for three reasons:
    1. It's free!
    2. There is a more homely atmosphere (as it is a home).
    3. We don't get kicked out at 11

    plus driving to mgl gives me the heebeegeebees ever since that accident :(
  • LionxLionx Do the Stun Super! Joined: Posts: 925
    @ I just need to know where.

    The advantages of MGL is that there might be more comp, and theres two setups. However Sam's place is good like brotherman said for other reasons.

    So just let me know whats up.

    There's comp at MGL? Last few wednesdays I went were dead...

    I prefer my place for tonight, especially since NCR is going to be console, I could use the practice on console. In the future, I don't have a problem with alternating sites to make things most convenient for people.

    GGs guys. All I have to say is 1 word: predilection. That about sums it up.

    Just to give everybody else the lowdown, the plan is SVGL tomorrow in a last-ditch tuneup before NCR. Fanime cats, you should try to come out to NCR on Saturday!

    Whew! After the small, but crazy-intense NCR tourney and getting my ass kicked in by great socal players the last two days, I was starting to feel a little burnout. Leave it to brothaman to bring on talk about Wednesday already. I agreed to host again if people want to come over. We could even start a little earlier this week because basketball doesn't start up again until Thursday (go Celtics!!!).

    Lol got vids? Tell me about it sometime.

    Watts/Johnny said we should probably play Wednesday sometime.

    Sorry for not being able to show up this weekend, Fanime was just too hype!

    So I played some casuals on Saturday at NCR. I was the guy using multiple grooves, usually with ken thrown in.
    I'm not sure if I played with any of you guys since the people I played weren't that good...only got around 40 minutes of play time as well.
    do you believe I would take such a thing with me, and give it to a police man

    Wednesday its either MGL or Sam's House for us, with Friday/Saturday having SVGL or MGL either or. :)

    Also, what Albert said...SSFIV is wayyyy too overrated.

    @wepeel: Put it like that, we probably did play on Saturday then. I'm not very good. In fact, I was probably the worst player to enter the tournament. :P

    @someaznguy: Its kind of a down time for the arcades these days - thank super for that. Street fighter 4, still ruining everything. My best advice is to keep an eye on this thread, so you can meet us at one of the arcades. Otherwise, you may get lucky at MGL on wednesday or friday, or SVGL on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday (not a popular day, but I've been going lately). You may not find a crowd on those days, but usually one or two people will come over and play you if you're on the machine.

    @albert_c: yessir. Good shit on getting 4th place. Did you beat crackfiend along the way? I was trying to remember if he was the one who finished 7th. Post up anytime you want to get some cvs2 games.

    Warzard: Yeah, I played crack. I use to play alot of CVS2 with him a few years back. I ran into Sanchez and beat him. Felt good cuz he's always beat me in CVS2 socal tournies. He's got a dope P groove. Also played Magic Don, he usually beats me in casuals. I guess playing sober in a tourney helps.


    I'm down to play, although it will probably have to be at KS2.

    Honestly, I haden't played in months. I was almost ready to give up on CVS2.

    But Damn, shits tight.

    Did any of the rest of the South Bay CvS2 crew play at NCR? Really wanted to make it out but this dumb real life stuff keeps getting in the way. I need to make another trip out to MGL soon!

    Everyone bailed for today, so I guess we'll play this weekend.

    @albert_c: I played a lot of games with sanchez this weekend, he's a real good player. I saw y'alls match at last year's ncr, that was one of the tighter matches I saw. I'm ok with coming to keystone 2 for cvs2. Just let me know when/where to go.

    @tobdawg: Yeah man cmon up, it'd be good to play again. Three of us made it to ncr - a lot of the others decided to go to fanime instead :( I got bodied, but I kept it somewhat close. Competition was insanely good for a small, 23-man tournament. Keep an eye out on getyourtournament for vids of the finals (and 2000_watts youtube for earlier rounds).

    I played two rounds against Tyram at NCR and watched all of you guys play at NCR. Great matches. Mr. Warzard, I think you were the one who lent me your joystick (modded Sfac?) for a bit. Thanks.

    I talked to 2000 watts about where people play since I thought the game was on a super hiatus in norcal as well. Are you guys going to CPS IV's MGL tournament? I'll be in the bay area again by then and entering ssfiv and I can bring a CRT and a ps2 for some casuals if you guys want.
  • Mr. WarzardMr. Warzard CvS2 Commissioner Gordon Joined: Posts: 785
    MGL it is then tonight.

    You're welcome noontide, glad you had fun. I'll be going to the MGL tournament for sure next weekend, so we can def get some games either on the cvs2 machines or on console, whichever.

    Hahaha, brothaman once again stepping in when I'm too lazy to post. Yeah, lets do cvs2 session: birthday edition at my place tomorrow, start around 8-8:30 as usual.

    MGL = milpitas golfland, a hive of scum and villainy. J/K, its right off the Jacklin rd exit of 680. 2 cvs2 cabs and a lot of people playing on fridays and occasionally on wednesdays (though it's been pretty dead lately).

    Hey Albert, could you please pm me your address? I'd probably be down to stop by after the NBA finals game tonight. Let me know also if I should bring a ps2 stick.

    Glad everybody could make it out last night, ggs to all! Until last night, I did not really appreciate just how much faster console is compared to arcade, fucken vega. K-groove guys, is there any trick to getting better at JD'ing? Or is it just something you eventually get the timing down for?

    As for this friday, well it's been a crazy cvs2 week. Played 5 times in 6 nights! I may just take it easy on friday, or go to SVGL for just a little bit, not a serious crack session. See you all on Saturday for sure at the tournament!

    About JD timing, its all about anticipation of when the other guy would strike or what blockstrings they do. Think of it as a pseudo parry, eventually if you really analyze the tendencies of other people, you get a ballpark sense of when to JD. Personally, JDing(and Parry) helps mind reading skills, after a while you not only get a feeling, but if you really actively think, you can probably think ahead of what the other guy might do based on the match.

    I'm free this week. Are any of you guys planning on going to MGL this Wednesday? If so, if there's interest, maybe we could session at my father's place on Wednesday instead. No one will be there due to some sort of vacation trip and it's only 5 minutes away from Milpitas Golfland so it's very easy get to. And we can get an Uncle Sam's from Pizza Box too. I have a PS2, CRT, an HRAP, and an american stick, so if we get one more CRT/setup, this could work.

    Anyone? If not, I'll probably be down for MGL/SVGL as well.
