Well I haven’t played against Hayao, but I traveled to gamespace Vegas a few times since I’ve been here, and the people that play there are very hardcore. It’s a really tiny place with about 6 3s machines going at any particular time. In particular, I got to play a set of about 30 with Rori, probably one of the best Dudley’s in the Japan. I won about 2 or 3 matches lol. My necro got shitstomped, but he gave me a ton of great advice. Cool guy.
ANYWAY, I asked about Hayao and he pointed out the Danizen board to me. Hayao is ranked in the group second from the top. Ridiculous considering he plays Hugo. Haitani, Rori, and a chun player were at the top (umezono maybe?).
Also, they had a board showing the days certain players would come. And Hayao’s name was up there. If you come and you want to play against Hayao, perhaps you should call the arcade first and ask which night he will be there. I should have :\ Next time!
