    Not exactly sure where are all of this GUY love is coming from (lame version of Ibuki if you ask me) with a horrible jump, and weak target combos (again compared to Ibuki). getting your execution down is great but I had a pretty easy time with guy and the shenanigans were very easy to escape. Admittedly with more time in the training room that could change, but all of my characters eat him for free right now...just my opinion. Regardless its nice to see our mains all in B+ range but then again tiers are pretty dumb and the senseless need to categorize everything is silly to me.

    I like the idea of Guy much more than how he actually plays. He's fun to use but man... he's not gonna be useful. know what i mean? I'm still prowling through the roster to find some other peeps.

    Hey guys I'm new around here. Wanted to check out the 5 dragons thing you got going on. Worst comes to worst I can always just get shitfaced at the bar lol. When is it and I hope I'm welcome. I've been grinding away at Abel and really want to get better.

    Thanks for posting up; the next event would be SaltMines (at my place in Salem) this Tuesday at 6pm. We have been playing as late as 2am lately so you will definitely get plenty of rounds in with a variety of matchups. This Thursday will also be 5 Dragons so bring your stick (controller whatever you got) and get ready. Last but not least...welcome! We are pretty crazy, talk a lot of shit and enjoy alcohol all pre-requisites for playing fighters in the first place so im sure you won't have a problem fitting in. So please let me know who is down for the Mines this Tuesday. Kraig's on Food and Drink duty this week:p

    Hey guys, I'm going to try to make it to the restaurant this Thursday. I have a friend who plays a bit of BB and SF and we want to check it out. See you there.

    Hey guys, I'm going to try to make it to the restaurant this Thursday. I have a friend who plays a bit of BB and SF and we want to check it out. See you there.

    that being said, anyone have directions from rt 3 coming from the manchester area? just so i can get a general idea of where the place is.
  • komradekraigkomradekraig Joined: Posts: 634
    Hey-Now, new people are always welcome (and the 5 dragons can make a good drink--just ask n00b). No need to be afeared. Looking forward to meeting everybody (and I'll remind the dudes from dustloop to actually bring a power cord this time for their setup). Looks like we'll have some good numbers for ssf4, bb, and brawl/melee this week.

    5 Dragons is at 28 Railroad Sq, Nashua NH. Go here for google map directions with a street view facing the building.

    And yeah, I'm on food+beverage duty for the saltmines tomorrow. 6 is the start time? man, what am i supposed to do when I get out of work at 4:30? n00b, if your car is still dead hit me up with a text and I'll get you on my way down.

    Unfortunately, I don't think I will be able to make it to the mines this week. Damn work. 5 Dragons on Thursday is looking pretty good for me so far though.
  • capsuletoycocapsuletoyco BRAD KAIN! Joined: Posts: 540
    are any other tv's or systems needed, i could probably bring one for blazblue, or whatever really.
  • NewBloodNewBlood Mika Boyz Joined: Posts: 945
    Sorry Kraig gotta make that money and I have a client at 4pm tomorrow, so won't be back until 545ish. I'll help out with drinks and food since I can't have only one person take on everything.

    @inthesto: PM me and I will send you the address for the "Mines" 5 dragons isn't until thursday.

    Anyone else who needs directions to my place tomorrow for "SaltMines Tuesdays" please PM me or speak out on the forum so I can get you here. Wuhwuh fuck work come tomorrow too! And someone tell Dan to get his ass here for atleast one of these lol. leveling up without him=p

    @richardo: Looking forward to having you and your friend come check us out on Thursday. It'll be good to see where a lot of us are at in these past 3 weeks.

    @capsuletoyco: we are always looking for more setups so pelase do bring one if you can. We normally have a couple of spare tv's. greatly appreciated. If you are open tomorrow night feel free to stop by the "mines" as well for a double dose of street fighter this week.

    PM sent, I'll bring in my system too if you'd like. My only warning is that my 50 ft ethernet cable has burrowed itself into my 360, so there will be a spare wire lying around for people to trip over
  • NewBloodNewBlood Mika Boyz Joined: Posts: 945
    Oh one last thing that came up...we play on PS3. I have room to setup another tv (please feel free to bring one otherwise I can may be able to use my tv from the bedroom) and console. If you have your own stick even better since not everyone likes HRap 3's and TE's. No excuses in the Mine ya'll. So if you have two sticks for your own setup bring it along if you would like. I think two setups total is enough depending on the turnout tomorrow.

    ok then, richardo and i shall see you thursday as i am working tomorrow, and it's my lady's birthday. count me in for bringing a set up.
  • inthestointhesto Guilty what? Joined: Posts: 151
    Whoops, only got one stick for my 360. I'll bring my PS3 stick, though.

    Lies! Everyone loves my hrap3! But it shouldn't be an issue. Newblood has a TE, n00b has a TE, i've got a hrap3, and it looks like inthesto has a ps3 stick as well, so should 2 setups be making an appearance at the mines, we'll be fine. Gonna be a big week this week.

    Romes and I have kickball on thursday but we should be there for 8-8:30. I'm exciting that some more people (read: capsuletoyco) play BB too.
  • RomesRomes Joined: Posts: 18
    Not going to make the mines tonight, as usual. My ultimate frisbee games are on Tuesdays from now until late June.

    Are we good for setups on Thursday? Not sure what the plan was after the one tv/ps3 scenario last time. Currently, I'm only planning on bringing my stick. And Kraig and I will be getting there late so not sure what will be there before 8:30.
  • komradekraigkomradekraig Joined: Posts: 634
    GGs at the mines last night. matches keep getting better. i gotta start getting better with other characters now before everybody wises up to t.hawk... and you know, keep my hawk game evolving.

    Yea they are getting much better, and as a result the salt is being turned up to the max. Should be a great Dragons event this thursday! Dee Jay and Sakura...T. Hawk killers?? Wakeup air Shinkuu ftw?? Yes my friends scrub tactics are highly effective! Inthesto nice to finally meet you and like that Honda. Maybe you shouldn't retire him just yet.

    just wondering what time you guys start tomorrow night? Also I can bring an extra stick if needed. I'm looking forward to this, my Abel is ready to get whooped.

    if you play brawl/melee you can show up at like 6:30 and Tom will be there. Otherwise, most peeps will show up between 7 and 8. A couple of us should be arriving around 8:30 (or earlier is possible) after kickball. Don't know when the ps3 setups will be arriving. who's bringing what this week?
  • inthestointhesto Guilty what? Joined: Posts: 151
    Good games last night at the salt mines. Maybe one day NewBlood will unlock the true power of Sakura's U2 and figure out how to do the non anti-air version, but that day is a long way off.

    I'll try to show up tomorrow, probably around 7:30 PM. I can bring a 360 with SSF4 and T6, but I only have one stick, so somebody's gonna need to bring another stick if we want to make use of it.

    Lol, not bad for "Day One" Sakura. Her ultra 2 has another variation??? pfft...no such thing as a horizontal shinkuu when it comes to epic Sakura play. On a more serious note, I will be around 6:30 with a PS3 setup so we need another PS3/xbox. Can we get confirmation for atleast another xbox stick so inthesto can bring his gear?

    Not sure why I am all of a sudden the only bringing stuff when everyone plays this game at home! I work too and drive most of the day and still pack my shit up and bring it so let's not start being lazy bastards. After all you need something to plug those modded-out sticks into correct?

    Anyway should be fun so those coming early can play me in some mvc2 or mark of the wolves. I also get down with tekken 6 and am always game. When the rest get there we start in on some SSF4 so get that last minute practice in!!

    don't be talking crap like Romes and I weren't bringing our shit to the 5 dragons before you even were a part of it, whippersnapper. Ping is gonna bring his setup I thought so i told phil to bring a tv for him. this means we can have 2 ps3 setups and if inthesto is bringing his 360 then that's 3 setups right there. should be good. i still wanna experience this whole MOTW stuff too.

    Not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, just stating the reality of the last six weeks (3 straight Dragons events) in which setups have been at a premium; just voicing a concern before it becomes a bigger issue. Regardless of however long I have been a part of this I certainly have contributed a fair amount of effort to making sure people know about this and will continue to do so until we have a scene on par with Mass, so don't take it personally (SaltMines is Tuesday remember =p). Thank you to those who are bringing setups tonight though it is certainly appreciated. Anyway Microsoft sucks and apparently MOTW is a 360 only download so its looking like that won't be happening. So in its place you can all watch me play Rocket Knight adventures (shame on you if you haven't played the Genesis original).

    See ya'll tonight and hopefully no one gets randomed out by my epic Sakura...just ask T. Hawk (buuuuuuurrrrrrrn!!!)

    lol, you know i <3 you laurence. i figured the "whippersnapper" would have given that one away--the webitubes has a hard time interpreting sarcastic humour (that's right, british spelling). i mean, who even knows where that word came from?
    See ya'll tonight and hopefully no one gets randomed out by my epic Sakura...just ask T. Hawk (buuuuuuurrrrrrrn!!!)

    don't fear the epic Sak, i swear that ultra only did like 200 damage.

    and microsoft does suck... or perhaps sony sucks cause they made snk/snkplaymore/playmore, whoever hate them and that's why the psn only gets crappy games like KoF99 or whatever. This does remind me, however, to finish my arcade emulation project on my laptop. Then I could just bring that and holy crap we'd have a lot of games to play.

    This thread is getting salty.

    I should be there tonight. Maybe 8:30ish. It sounds like we're good for setups. Maybe some more BB going on tonight then there has been.

    Looking forward to seeing some new faces. Hope you guys can make it!

    And, NewBlood is playing Sakura? Pick a main, man!!!

    Lol you need salt to keep the embers of competition burning!! Blank SUCKS!!!! Pretty mad now ain't ya?! Want to get in that training room and rip off those crispy links to perfection now too don't ya Romes?! See that's how far a little salt will travel and fortunately for you all I have a never ending stream of it to toss in your direction!

    Yep im looking forward to seeing some real BB go down tonight...Maybe my scrub Ragna will make an appearance, unless I get scared off from Kraig Tager 720's. As for my never ending search for a main Romes, that's been going since SF4...Not in love with this roster as weird as that sounds, but I think I hit the jackpot with Dee Jay. Sakura and oddly enough Ken are really fun too. I think subconciously I am just biding time until MvC3 comes out.

    correction =
    I am just biding time until BB:CS comes out.

    It looks as though it may still be a july release in US. All those tournament edition sticks already starting shipping so I don't think there's any reason to push it back. get on that hype train. CHOO CHOO.

    it was nice meeting everyone, see you next time, maybe we'll get a few more BB players.

    thanks, man. those resets into 720 are the utmost in hilarity and awesomeness for me. Your mixups are really good though so you do a good job of locking me down. looking forward to playing again.

    it was nice meeting everybody else too, lots of good times/food/and games. can't wait for the next one.
  • NewBloodNewBlood Mika Boyz Joined: Posts: 945
    I think I will get back to my BB training as well. Now that we have a small contingent gathering for it makes a bit of sense to actually practice it now. Good BB players are hard to come by hopefully those who play are part of forums in which we can get the word out to them to attend the next Dragons event.

    Glad everyone had a good time especially the new faces in the crowd. Hopefully it was better than you expected and please continue to come and enjoy! Great street fighter last night I learned a lot and finally found a main! Hey-Now looking forward to seeing how your Abel progresses and gg last night. Kraig your Hawk is still a gigantic pain in the ass and I am sure you are happy to see your mix ups and tricks work on even more experienced SF players.

    Lastly turning our attention to SaltMines on Tuesday, please let me know who is down to come by. I have room for more than one setup so if 3-4 BB players want to come through as well there will be room for you to do your thing also. As always we split food and beer expenses and play until 130-2am in the morning. Starts 6pm. Tuesday is a boring night for most so don't be shy about posting up if you want to come by throughout the night. I would say 8-10 people max would be the limit.
