    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
  • RomesRomes Joined: Posts: 18
    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.

    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.

    It is my personal opinion that once komradekraig gets his laptop and ROMs setup, we should abandon all other games and play Cyberbots exclusively

    Seriously, check out this shit. It's fucking Sentinel: The Game

    Dibs on Jin/Blodia!!

    Well guess I will throw a few up for your viewing pleasure: check out round 1 of this epic game that no one played (got it for dreamcast). Was that a flaming condor dive... into flaming tamohawk (T.Hawk) with a sword, towards the end of the first round??????!!!!!! All you Kraig!!



    Another one no one really played:



    Lastly a game so epic it had to be included at last week's Mid West Championships!



    @Richardo: Agreed 40 game Win streaks shouldn't be happening:shake:

    If you guys haven't been checkin out the live stream for East Coast Throwdown check it out today if you can. Finals start today but some mass players have made a pretty good showing; Craig Stevens T.Hawk nice! If anyone plays the Vanilla cast religiously its a good opportunity to see your characters played at a high level live. Just throwin it out there. Enjoy your Sunday all.

    Cyberbots looks killer. It's like armored core meets gundam (man I wish there was a good gundam game) except everybody is Sentinel. I think I have JoJo's bizarre Adventure--not sure if it works 100% but i know I tested it and I could play as some crazy ass bird thing. when I finally get my ass in gear and set everything up i can certainly make this stuff happen. I even have a sweet frontend (arcade maximus). Otherwise, if you guys have these things (they can be quite hard to find) hold onto that crap and I'll share all my stuff with you too once it's all set. Looks like craig stevens (gridman), merkilo, and paul wall all came in 33 out of like 340 peeps or something. badass.

    I shall be at the SaltMines this tuesday.

    The pilot actually doesn't affect anything in multiplayer Cyberbots!

    And Last Blade 2 was a sick game. I actually used to play it on GGPO a fair bit.

    I'll be showing up to the salt mines on Tuesday too, but I'm gonna have to leave early thanks to giving my sister a ride from the bus station yet again.
  • NewBloodNewBlood Mika Boyz Joined: Posts: 945
    Need to know how many BB players are coming because it's normally a SSF4 focused gathering. If there at least two people from the BB crowd I can make space for another setup since I have an extra tv (feel free to bring your own lag proof monitor if you have one). Regardless another setup will be needed if we are to have BB and SSF4 going simultaneously so bring an extra console/sticks at the very least. Post up with any other questions if you have em.

    East Coast Throwdown was ridiculous for those of you who checked it out, Finals was especially fucking crazy with non-other than one of the best (if not THE best) fei-long I have ever seen...and he's on pad. Look up Inthul on youtube (frame advantage.com)and I am sure you will agree once you see this guy. Defintely nice to see a lesser played character kick out a top player like Sanford Kelly and shake up the scene a bit. If anything it's a statement that if you know the ins and outs of your character of choice, matchups don't mean too much all the time. Congrats to the Mass players who represented, would be nice to see some NH cats head out once we are appropriately leveled up...

    So Salt Mines tomorrow! I believe we have 5 so far. Noob bring your boys and an xbox setup if you can to reduce the wait time in between your grudge matches lol! And for those who would like to come we still have some space so post up. My place isn't huge so please let me know in advance if you are attending tomorrow.

    I can already tell things are gonna get extra salty. Gonna be hot--like literally, we are gonna need that A/C or the windows open and a fan. And i'm already calling it--laurence is gonna be exclaiming at like 1 in the morning about how he's gonna be switching his main for like the 10th time.

    also, the wallcade tourney is this saturday. Anybody wanna go? Cause I know I do.

    yeah, being at work at 9 is the best... lol. I don't feel i played particularly well last evening (especially in BB with you Tim and you certainly deserve better than a flailing tager to face) and since everybody and their mom is gonna be away somewhere this weekend it looks like I'll have lots of time to hit up the training room. I gotta expand my mixup game with hawk, work on spacing properly, and get my other normals (like cr.mk) into those rounds. I realized that I'm actually keeping hawk too far back during most matches and trying to react too much and I'm giving up momentum by being outside the range of my pokes--so I want to work on staying at an optimum distance to stuff whatever they do and push peeps back to the corner. I'm also gonna pop in that BB and see if I can't bring my game back up. ggs.

    so laurence, who's your main now?
  • NewBloodNewBlood Mika Boyz Joined: Posts: 945
    Good shit last night fellas, I continue to enjoy the fact that we are actually learning (except when it comes to fuckin T.Hawk). Tim my apologies for not being able to provide some decent BB comp for you last night, we normally have a few more players who come; But thank you for throwing yourself in the SF fray even though it's not your main game! Rich like your ideas for growing the scene and definitely down for the Melty train whenever you guys are. GG to all I played; dropped tooooooo many Sak links that I am use to hitting, but dems da breaks...More training mode to beat it into my fingers. Kraig I am officially in it to win it with GUY for better or for worse we are bonded. Anyway I am ready to break him in on some endless match PSN style so hit me up if someone wants to get a shit ton of vs Guy...His matchups seem pretty horrible in this game (just a guess). Throw out ideas for next weeks SaltMine (bonus game:cyberbots?) event and remember we have Dragons happening next week so let's expect to have another crazy turnout like last week...clear your schedules!!!! Tuesday and Thursday night, Get your fuckin table salt, sea salt, kosher salt and get ready to fuckin sprinkle that shit Tuesday! Then Thursday bring the A game to Dragon's...WANT TO BE BETTER!!!!

    SaltMines Tuesday is almost upon us, so like every week need to know how many people are making it for Tuesday. On a side note I realize that the issue of lag came up during the last session and I would like everyone to have the optimum fighting experience so if you have TV of your own please bring it!!! I have a setup for PS3 and one for xbox so like last time I need someone to bring a tv and XBox version (SSF4) and sticks for xbox if we are going to have a couple of setups like last time.

    @capsule: Just saw your post about the game night you were having my bad man. I could have made it too, fuck!

    So if you have a tv again we could use it so post up if you can bring one and sticks for xbox! Btw Wallcade stream was hot for those that didn't get to check it out this weekend. Lots o talent there which was pretty cool to see. Let's sprinkle a little NH in there for representation sake for the next one. Enjoy the rest of the long weekend peeps.
