I was the chun li player. I think the controls were fine on 3S. I saw many people win on the side you were complaining about. I mostly played the 2p side (I’m a habitual player) , but I saw alot of people win on the 1p side. You say you were trying to block down-back… but you were getting hit with fierce, which only needs to be blocked back. You shouldn’t really have a problem w/ that.
Btw, don’t worry about charge partitioning so much, and worry about not doing sweeps and fireballs against Chun Li w/ meter. That’s what’s gonna kill you. I must have won like 8 rounds in the tourney to shoto sweeps alone, it’s one of the few moves I know that’s unsafe. I died to Jorge cuz I didn’t know what the deal with Remy’s kick move was. I think I might have played against Remy once in all the times I’ve played 3S.
Oh, and why are there three fifth places and three seventh places?
in a double elim tourney, it should go 1,2,3,4,5,5,7,7,9,9,9,9,13,13,13,13, 17,17. I also know this to be true b/c I won against edmond one round before I won against James.
Anyway good tourney. A few suggestions though.
1.Have brackets on clipboards instead on the wall. Walking back and forth to call matches is unessesary.
2.Have one person designated to call out matches per game, especially if the director is playing in tournements. I saw alot of slowdown b/c of this. It’s just a person to call out the next match and to write down who wins… any questions should go to the director.
3. call on deck matches. basically get the next people set to play before the current match is done.
4. Get some games to play casual. Only other fighting games there besides tourney ones were Sam Sho IV, KOF 99 and 00 (all in the neo geo cab), and T4/TTT. Not exactly a great selection for people coming to play capcom games. I mean, jeez, each of those driving/shooting games cost about 10 times more apiece.
It’s kinda pooey that Billy and I came mainly to play CvS2 and that was the lowest turnout. Mad props to James JDing and patiance, and Kevin’s RCing, Customs, and patiance. I lost so much life to those guys simply because they were more patient than I was. I’ll turtle for a bit, then go… “I’m gonna jump now!” and get hit.
Good stuff guys. See you soon.
