4/30 Ohio Midwest Classic 5 (OMC5) Results!


#1

CvS2 (a whopping 4 entrants)

  1. Popoblo (surprise!) A-Eagle/Bison/Blanka
  2. Chris Rose (SSJGogeta) A-Ricky, K-CBS
  3. Brent (Vega) C-Kim/Vega/Sagat (?)
  4. Dave (Ghettoontherise) C or K-???/???/Sagat

-We did round robin, and I went 3-0, Chris went 2-1, so we played a best of 7 set for shits and gigggles. I took that 4-0.

I’ll update everything else in time. The turnout fucking sucked, not gonna lie. MI usually supplies a ton of people, but they had some Halo tourney. Plus I’m guessing Cleveland was MIA for some odd reason, but they usually don’t come out for tournaments other than their own that are even in OH…

I left while 3S was still going on, and Juicy G beat Ghaleon in the winners finals, and brent, dave, and some others were still left. I eliminated D-Fly somehow, and I thought he would win 3S easy. I’m lucky that I have experience against Necro I guess, but he still should’ve beaten me.

peace


#2

OMG eagle finally won a major!!!

hopefully you won enough money to cover all the loses you incured at TS5 through money matches


#3

Actually 5 Cleveland players were there. So please don’t point fingers like we don’t travel to tournaments. Thank you.


#4

The highlight of the whole day was when someone pulled off a perfect in Marvel vs Capcom 2. :rofl: There were a lot of Ooooooohs, Oh Shits and, Oh Snaps.

Too bad there were no DBZ Budokai 3 tournaments though. :sad:

Or even Wutang: Shaolin Style!! :karate:

The rest of the games matches were nice though. Specially the Mortal Kombat Trilogy. Had some good Bomberman games too. :clap:

  1. Turnout for Capcom sucked. I’m sorry capcom players, and mostly Popoblo who was looking forward to this.
    Things to do next time:
  • don’t conflict with michigan halo tournies.
  1. Turnout for Guilty Gear XX #Reload Rocked. Even if I played like shit :slight_smile: I had a blast, it is always fun playing pruja (god i can’t spell your name) we didn’t have our money match :frowning: sorry dude i was so busy running bullshit. It was still alot of fun
    Things to do next time:
    -Please stop bitching about brackets, This is the last time I will change the brackets again when chicago players have to play chicago players, fuck you. :stuck_out_tongue:

  2. Turnout for Tekken was surprisingly decent…
    Things to do next time- Troy bring more girls.

  3. Sorry for things that didnt get run because not enough people entered. (IE CFJ=1 = Clayton, Soul Calibur 2)
    Things to do next time- don’t even post CFJ

  4. VF tourney looked like it was a great tournout and fun tournament too.
    Things to do next time- VF will probably never happen again.

Had fun guys thanks for showing up!


#6

don’t be that guy. money match at evo if you’re actually talking shit. i got a feeling you’re just being sarcastic for no apparent reason.

i guess NOBODY from cleveland plays capcom games then. it just fucking sucked to drive up FRIDAY afternoon to discover a room of chicago guys playing 3S and 2 ft wayne guys who barely made the cvs2 tourney possible.

but fuck it, roll cancelling is cheap.


#7

Fugee had 5 cops try and bust him thinking he stole TV’s from OSU.
Homo cops.

I hope he got off fine.


#8

Popo just drive to Michigan… summer is coming up, i’m sure somebody would let you chill with em. That way you can play your heart out. Actually are you planning on going to the may-n-event?


#9

Don’t get it wrong. I respect you as a player and even said you’d probably beat me with another character you played well, I just wish you would’ve done it. Getting beat by a boss character that is password unlockable in arcade only just makes me feel so cheated. Nonetheless, you’re still a better TRF player than me.

CFJ should’ve been run, I would’ve entered.

And that is FUCKING LAME.


#10

yeah turnout sucked ass. 4 people for cvs2 4 for mvc2, 10 for 3s? We’re lucky we didnt have more people cause SF only had 2 tvs. If we would have brought anymore more TVs we would have went to jail for sure LOL. Cop- Sir do you have a license?
Fugee- Yes!
Cop- Can I see your insurance Card?
Fugee- Yeah but check this. DO those fuckers think we stole TVs?! :stuck_out_tongue:

They must have felt STUPID!
Oh yeah and I was the one who got a perfect in mvc2 against marcel.


#11

Danny - I felt bad for ya because I know how it is to advertise try your heart out and advertise plenty ahead of time and do what you can to accommodate players just to find that no one shows or they show but don’t play anyway. :sad: I guess it happens from time to time so shrug it off and try again.

Fugee - I appologize for getting so short tempered with ya a few times late in the evening. I’m sure you understand in that if you were traveling a pretty good distance and were promised, say, a MKT tournament and like it got cancelled about 4 out of 6 times that you’d be rather upset too. And face it, I’m like Frank, that’s the main game I’m coming for. CvS2 (and Tekken 5 in this case) are to help pass the time for me so that I don’t get bored, and 3S is a game that I have chances to do well in but I’m never surprised if I don’t. Just please don’t lead people onto thinking there will be a tournament and then cancel it more times than not. If you post it, you better have it or people will get pissed, you’ll lose tournament director cred, and honestly some people will be reluctant about coming back. I’m sort of at that stage right now. I’m not sure it’s worth my time, money, and whatever to keep doing this just to be disappointed and angered over such a thing. I guess I have some serious thinking to do before deciding whether I’m coming back to these Ohio tournaments or not. Sorry.

George - Your royal Juiciness, thanks for the tourney matches. :karate: Can’t help but keep falling for this one Ken tactic in 3S. Haha. Marvel match for fun sometime? :wgrin:

Eric Collazo - Great seeing you again and yes, of course we played in all the tournaments that we both entered. DUH! That’s a given, sort of the same way with me and Domingo for some reason. Anyway, keep helping people to realize that we use joysticks, not button boxes. :rofl:

Ghaleon Chris - Your improvement in 3S simply amazes me. And from what you told us, your improvement in MvC2 is quite inredible also. Keep up the good work. You have a real chance to be a truly dominating midwest force.

Anthony - The honkster, thanks for the Feng Wei tips. They should help take me a long way to improving my play, that is, when I do play. Oh well, it’s still fun and still worth it.

Sakura Dogs - Nice meeting you briefly. Congrats on your T5 finish and we truly hope to see you at my friend’s (Dave, that King player) tournament. Saturday, May 21st in Fort Wayne, IN.

The girlfriend of Sakura Dogs - Heh, thanks for that combo with Feng Wei. Although I haven’t really sat down and tried it a lot, the only way I sort of got it to connect is when I did the finishing f +2, 1, 2 and the 1 actually whiffed but the 2 connected, and I didn’t even delay the final 2. Anyway, tell your boy to think about attending our local Fort Wayne, IN tournament on Saturday, May 21st.

Everyone else that I know or recognize - Nice seeing ya again and I hope to do it again sometime.

Getting lost on the way home, and then getting a $95 dollar ticket suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks.

Though sounds like fugee also had a pretty shitty time so hopefully he is ok.

Couple things to bitch about before I say how much I love everyone(well almost)…

As for the CVS2 sitution, I acctualy brought my stick thinking I might enter. But im glad I didnt as I dunno man, I dont see how you guys can play on those un even tiles or sitting on your lap. When I played a couple matchs its just to uncomfertable to play, and my stick keeps moving. I dunno if somehow you guys could get some thing else to put your sticks on so they dont move I might acctauly enter next time.(that is if no one from MI goes lol)

On another note I think its pretty unprofesional(if you can even be that in a video game world kinda sitution)that you say there is going to be a tourny on a certain date and then its not run. Now soul calibur is a whole diff sitution as I understand it was last second it sorta got added so thats not really you guys fault or anything. But as spoink says there were acctualy a few people that would have enterd CFJ. Now when i talked to drac he told me someone told him that the reason they didnt run CFJ is cuz no one wanted to run it.

Now thats pretty bs. I think you gotta realize that I mean some people acctualy came for the tourny. So to not want to run it is pretty gay. Now im not blameing fugee or anything as I talked to him about it. But whoever said they didnt want to run it or how they had no one that wanted to run it, well it just sucks. I mean CFJ belive it or not was one of the reasons I went. I dont know if I would have gone to the tourny to just play GG cuz I just dont care about the game. Plus not saying I would have won it, but I wouldnt have minded a few extra bucks to help pay for all this new car crap ive been having to deal with. Even if only a few bucks. Soooo ummmmm yea this sucked.

Also jason dude! CFJ had the most people last tourny 4 months ago or whatever! =[

On another note to whoever “Borrowed” my arcade stick. Dont you think that was a little rude? I mean I thought I had lost my stick, only for andy to say he found it on the outside. So someone must have just said oh well this person doesnt care, ill just take there stick. Thats pretty gay dude. The least you could do is ask or something.

Hrmm I think thats all I shall complain about I guess…

Anyway umm yea it was nice to see everyone again and all that kinda stuff. QSL was good as usual, thanks to G for waiting for us and showing us the way etc.

Anyway I guess props to the tourny go to george and mike as well you guys beat kenji and well I still think kenji is probably the best right now. So good job to you guys for beating him and stuff.

And I suck I still ask that my matchs not be put up as im ass. lol its funny I remember I told myself before the tourny “clayton… You know your not going to practice so your going to play this whole tournment only uses your mind, and stratgys tactics etc”… Guess I jinxed myself lol. When I acctualy started playing(which was basicly the tournment since i got 3 whole matchs of casual lol)I had forgetton everything I told myself, and was just playing and doing basicly nothing. I even told kevin to remind me to do stuff cuz I was forgeting about things, but he was gay and forgot to tell me lol. Oh well yea i suck, my execution was as always bad, and I had no stratgy what so ever. So yea do not put up my matchs. I already said that but im sure you will but I hate you so umm yea ._.

Annnnnnnnyway umm yea thanks to everyone that helped run the tournies etc, and thanks to travis, andy, and jo-el for driving. And good job to everyone that did well in the tournies.


#13

avi heres the last dateing game I played that you wanted to see…

http://www.tomy.co.jp/gamesoft/ichigo100/index.html

I dunno though theres no sex in it, plus its kinda shitty so I dunno if you would like it, but im sure you can get a burned version somewhere shrug. I still think you should play true love 95 though…


#14

so who were the top 3 in 3S and mvc2 so i can edit the first post with the results?

i really feel bad for people who drive super long distances (ie ft wayne and chicago) for such shitty turnouts. my apologies again, cuz that’s bullshit.

obot- i might come to may’n event, but me and arcade cabinets don’t go well together, so we’ll see.

nice to see everyone again though, we’ll hold off awhile for another one of these (before evo?) to make sure we find a way to have more TV’s and a better turnout.

and ghaleon, very nice shit in 3S. you stepped up your game big time, and it showed. i beat you the first time we played, you beat me pretty handily this time, so i’ll train and i look forward to the rematch.

and in case anybody is curious, my team scrub > fugi’s, and i took our first to 10 money match 10-4 for $20. BET IT.

PEACE


#15

All I can do is apologize to Capcom players.

#R,T5,VF had Great Turnouts, It was lots of fun, even if i played pretty bad. So please don’t read this thread and think this tourney sucked. It was really successful for everything not Capcom.

I had my hands full running #R,T5,VF,TRF. All of which was really fun and had succesful runs.

I am sorry it was just impossible for me to run anything Capcom.
Once Again It is very dissappointing that Capcom had a poor turnout.
I have no excuses or explantions. I wasn’t running Capcom, but I still wanted to make sure it would be there for players who wanted it.
I have no idea what happened with CFJ.

Had fun nonetheless. Until next time, peace!

It was a very good tournament, and I really loved the location. It just sometimes felt like the resources that were availible were not hardly being used. 2 HUGE projectors, and only 1 was used, and it was only used to for VF4 and TEKKEN(im asuming after I left the finals were actually put on there). I just got the feelings things were not thought out enough, and it was just kinda like OK GO! But, I had a good time and it was great to see some famliar faces…

Clayton- I was totaly with you on CFJ and I and Spoink were going to enter. But, what can you do ya know?

Popoblo- I was actually going to enter the CVS2 until I saw that it was the best players entered only. I played some casuals against you and Chris Rose and that is all I needed to know that I am tired of that game. And I am just getting in 3S so I didn’t enter it either. Sorry.

Fuggee- Always awesome to see you! That Rick James 3S intermission was awesome. We gotta find a way to get some more capcom players to the next one of these beasts.

Vega- I am with you on the AE boat. I basically came to enter that,CFJ, and CVS2. But none the less it was fun to hang out and stuff. Youve got a pretty sick Oro!

J1n- You password character in a tournament user you! It’s cool, first one, can’t expect to have all the rules ironed out just yet for TRF. But I was glad to see the projector come on for VF4 tht was awesome.

If I missed someone, Im sorry, not like my shout outs really matter. Anyways good tournament, but some things just seemed not well thought out. Although it was cool that there were 2 rooms, it really divided the crowd and hurt the overall experiance. But whatever, I still had fun.
Later

I guess I have some serious thinking to do before deciding whether I’m coming back to these Ohio tournaments or not. Sorry.

For the last time I HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PLANNING, ORGANIZATION, or ANNOUCEMENTS FOR THIS TOURNAMENT.

Now that I think about it there wouldnt have been any Capcom tournaments if Ghaleon and I hadnt supplied the Tvs last minute. On friday night I found out Jason and Popo who put this shit together only have 5 tvs for 10 posted tournament games…ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? I have always had fun running tournaments for my boys who have them but, at the same time when Im supplying if not all the equipment for the these tournaments to happen and they dont because of whatever reason Dont give me shit about it go to the ones who organized it and so called promised you these tournaments. Which wasnt I.

On the flip side it was cool seeing my peoples again from In,Cleve,CHi,Ky,Cin and Akron. I Feel for all of you because I knew the turn out would be weak due to other tournaments surrounding this one. However I didnt want to make it any worse then it already was by telling my niggas from Chicago to sit this one out, But we all know Bozac,Dfly,Dennis,Eric and G are all soldiers and are in for the games and the loot. Same goes for my boys Brent and Dave who always rep for Ft wayne.

Next time I suggest better planning and Location for Columbus turnaments. I mean its cool that osu gives us free rooms but parking sucks and now I see that we can’t even take our own tvs back without being chased down and stopped by 5 cruisers.

Bottom line is there needs to be a better incentive to come to Ohio tournaments period. Organizers need to understand that players come to tournaments expecting to play competetive players that arent in their own player base as well as the possibility of winning a decent purse. Therefore some kind of risk out of their own pocket has to happen. Like bonus money for 1st place or even bringing top players from other states to attract their fans and other top players. This even includes fronting the loot for a better venue as well. Until someone steps up and takes this risk…Im sorry to say it but Ohio tournaments will not grow.

And for the record Popo did get me 1st to 10 in our marvel money match but he pulled a BITCH move when he was being scraped 4-1. If you cant beat em join em.

On a good note Im going to ECCX to help run Marvel…so get at me if you are trying to caravan…Marvel,T5,3s,#r will def be huge there.


#18

AKA-GG’s,man…I’ll have to give it another try at MWC. Still, great seeing you again, man.
722-Great games to you, too. I fucking hate Bridget! I’ll get used to the matchup and we’ll play again. Keep that shit up.

Thanks to the tourney organizers for having this event, it was fun times, even though I didn’t play. Hope to see alot of you cats at MWC.

MEAT SOCKS!!!


#19

Sorry if it sounds like I was dissing the tourny jason or anything. I dont mean it to sound like that, im glad you and ed helped run it etc… Just sucks that CFJ wasnt ran(not blameing fugi etheir as I talked to him about it and stuff)but it kinda sucks, cuz well if something is said to be there, its like you assume it will be and like I said I dunno if I would have came if I read it wasnt going to be there ._.

Oh well I go bai bai…


#20

lung, were you the guy w the long hair playing K-???/bison/blanka or sagat? i don’t understand why more people would’ve made you want to play. you would have to play the best soon enough if you made it that far. it was almost better b/c you would’ve played the best 4 players round robin instead of just being eliminated by 2.

rematch? 1st to 10 for $20 at the next one?

you do have a point w/ incentives. i threw out $50 for cvs2 for the one in february, j1n threw in $50 for guilty gear this time, so we’ll pull our resources for next time. and props for supplying TV’s AGAIN, it really is appreciated. cvs2 would’ve taken YEARS if MI did show up.

i don’t know about a new location though, OSU is free, and parking is like $6 for the garage. get a full car, and it’s a little over a dollar a person. that’s pathetic if people can’t spare a dollar. plus if we’re already adding incentives, PLUS paying for a location, it’ll get too expensive too fast. and having an entry fee for the place turns a lot of players off.

but no MI means that OH tournies suck, it’s that simple.

i also don’t understand how people will take off work/devote a day to a tourney, then not enter games that they’re good at because they don’t have money. if you’re going to go out of your way to actually attend a tourney, it just makes sense to bring enough money to play in particular games. i KNEW i wasn’t going to win 3S, but i entered anyway to get better. if i didn’t have something to do saturday night, then i would’ve stayed for mvc2 also.

live and learn. we’ll have much better communication next time, and i’ll front money for the next cvs2 pot for sure. and i’ll bring a TV.

PEACE
