Le - Man, you are a good T.O. You are like a slave to your work. I notice your reluctance to give up your chair and take a break. A man of passion. Without your help, these tournaments would be even more stressful for me, but thanks to your efforts, we run these things like clockwork, every time. I know it’s stressful for you, especially the longer it goes, but you do a great job. Good shit. Enter more games next time.
Glen - You’re the man. Thanks for trying so hard for our scene. Bringing your guys out and having them show their stuff was really fun. The kings are training them very well, and it seems that even the STL A-Team (not S) is on top of us. We’re getting better too, so someday WE WILL REACH THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN! See you next week at Anime STL.
Scamp - SO beast. You sandbagged the night before the tournament didn’t you? I need to play your Sim more because it is CLEAR that KC can’t deal with Dhalsim, especially not one that controls space as well as you do. Untouchable in tournament play. Well done my friend. See you again soon.
Hector - Big dick fuerte was repping hella in teams. I watched a few of your matches. Our Fuertes could learn from you. Your shirt is incredible btw.
Edward - You will get there with Chun. Punishment seems to be your biggest problem right now, but that all comes with time and practice. Glad you enjoyed playing on the stage. I know I did. Hope you’ll come out again. Meanwhile, be sure to talk to Glen, Allen and especially Ramennoodle about Chun Li. He mains her, and he is local to you.
Torrey - You are a soldier. ALWAYS making our tournaments. I wish I could return the favor, but I’m still waiting on the next big one you guys host at Metagames! You’re very patient with Gief, that was a lot better than the last time you were here. Work on punishing fireballs on reaction with greenhand, and lariat vs ANY jumpins. Hope to see you next time.
Sang - Pretty damn good Viper. At least from what I can tell, having not played too many. Taking Kong down in the first match was the biggest upset in the tournament. I look forward to your improvement. Congrats for taking TvC.
Warden - We missed you bro.
GREAT showing fellas. A LOT of new faces, and the BEST and HYPEST Maxout we have had yet.
JSPoT - Thank you so much for doing all the work to set up that stage. That MADE this tournament. I hope we’ll continue seeing you, because not only does your setup clearly add to the hype of the tournaments, but your improvement in skill is becoming hard to ignore. The longer the day went on, the more I found myself less and less upset you beat me in teams. You are just better than you were before, and had little to do with me. Good shit. I hope we will see you in the top 5 in SSFIV.
Kong - EVERYONE has a bad day, even you champ. It was obvious you had a lot on your mind… Sorry you couldn’t perform as well as we all know you could have, but there will be next time. And hey, you’re going to be even MORE of a beast… SSFIV Chun. Chin up buddy.
New guys to the SF scene (Catgirlfanatic, Blargh, NickMito, KC Notorious) - glad to have you aboard.
Blargh - Excellent job taking BlazBlue. I’m still gonna beat your ass when CS hits. :lol: Your Seth is coming along great. I’m sure we will see you jump in skill quickly. Keep coming to hookups, and asking questions, and it’s inevitable.
Boxy - consistent all across the board. Just keep in mind what I said about improvement, and hey, maybe you’ll be WINNING the tournaments next time. Fun times drunken master. Fun times.
Eugene - What a scrub, trying to random me out with Panda. Almost worked too. You let Boxy take you down though. . looks like you two are due for a fight for that #2 spot. Next week seems more hype already…
Kevin - Best first tournament performance ever? Just maybe. 1st in teams, 2nd in singles, and the highest placer from KC. I suppose we have a new champ. Congratulations again, my friend. I routed against you quite a lot, simply out of spite for someone that could come out to their first tourney and do so well, but some people are just naturals. Next time, I’ll be in your corner, you certainly proved yourself. Come to more hookups, and continue making the tournaments. We could use your skill.
GetThere1Time - Nick, you continue to creep up to the top in KC. It’s inevitable. Great showing in teams. Playing last night was a lot of fun as well.
NotSake/Luminaire - As always, your attendance is appreciated. Without you guys, we probably wouldn’t even bother running GG anymore, and that’d be a shame. Clearly, you’re both improving at the game too. Had I lost to you guys this time, I’d even be practicing it again. Next time.
THANKS again everyone. If I missed you, I’m sorry. Look for the SSFIV premiere tournament of MAXOUT next month!
