this was probably the most fun out of all c3s i’ve been to (this being my 3rd). a LOT of old faces but also many new faces, a combination that surprised me. although the turnout wasn’t as high as i’d want it to be for 3S, i’m glad that there has been more attraction to c3, as it already has proven itself to be capable of being a staple event in our reviving community.
skisonic - i won it for you lover. too bad you couldn’t make it, hopefully we’ll be able to get some games in this summer.
eric lee - good luck with EMS fool. hopefully you get it so you can make tourney appearances more often. nothing wrong with eric kim, but playing you in finals has always been a tradition for us. come back!
sparatik - what a surprise to find a hermit out of his hole! it was great seeing you again…i guess life goes on after SF. hopefully you find it in your heart to still show up every now and then. too bad you couldn’t stay long…i would’ve loved to rekindle our hugo/akuma relationship, ahahhah
nokato - another surprise! i didn’t know you returned from school, but it was awesome that you did. don’t get too upset over any games…things evolve when you’re not around anymore. but make an effort to play with us over the summer. 3S is hype!
koop - DEMORALIZED.
GT crew masaka/ookamooka - nice to see familiar faces again. makes me miss the ole GT days…jerry’s subs! play 3S you old bastards!
bmorechun - pick up 3S my stylish brotha
carlos/rugal - play 3S with bmore! cvs2 is godly boring!
jody the fucking don - i dont even know what to say to you. see you at the tables sometimes
steve terry bogard harrison!!! the man of the evening no doubt. no 1st places, but 2nd in cvs2, 2nd in ggxxs, and 3rd in 3s. very impressive for a man that got into a car accident, AND DONT PLAY GAMES. i know you have tons of potential with that chun. don’t get frustrated, and play your best. im always here to help man. your monologue was the highlight of my evening. ahahahhahahahahha
pvp - demoted sir. TWICE. you’ve shamed me.
eric kim - you know that makoto is as gay as my yun. don’t hate good shit though; nothing wrong with 2nd. keep playing…the difference between you and me is that i have a lot more experience under my belt…analyze your game more and take out what’s holding you back.
aaron - tough breaks man. a lot of close matches there…but don’t worry about it. with each defeat comes more enlightenment…keep studying that ken. i know you got it in you…come up and play with grant/phil/me again.
rockman - licking icecream cone. nothing more i can say.
ross - once again, im extremely sorry for that fuckup. as the person running the tournament, i should’ve paid more attention and at least double check my work. hope you can forgive me. as far as your game is concerned, your ibuki is pretty solid. patient and smart; you should play much more…get the VA head together! and make it out to more tournies! saturn/ps2 pad owns eric kim/rockman/pvp for sure!
paul - good oro man…i couldn’t stick onto dudley cuz im stubborn and oro counters dudley pretty badly ahahaha – you’ve got a good ground game and your tengus arent bad. solidy with more parries and chicken combos and you’re good to go. hope to see you more often at these tournaments…and of course, thanks for letting me bum your stick for a lot of my matches. very kind of you!
deviljin/bryan - you guys have something no one else has. someone to play with anytime you want to. use this to your advantage, and research as much as you can. expand your horizons with other chars…study match vids, etc. play each other and develop your skills exponentially.
marc g - FOR SHAME!
snookums - you’ve got a pretty nice alex. good to have met you. your girlfriend being there really made me miss my girl (she’s down south for the summer)…goddamn you both! anyway, alex. keep playing, keep getting better. we’ll get more games in next time! good shit on that steal of a T5 stick.
victor: who the fuck do you play 3S with? you’ve been very consistent with your placings…good shit man. although your chun is pretty rough around the edges, im sure if you put some effort into learning the game you’ll be a force to be wreckoned with…ever seen justin play? forget mvc2!!! ;p
nasser - don’t forget to call me so i can get your number. about what we talked about in the car, i’ll think about it. i guess i can always be the bigger man…but it’s hard sometimes when people are like that. but i know where you’re coming from. but about 3S this summer, you know im definitely up for it. just tell me whats up. your ken is still very solid btw!
marn - make sure you 3S with us while you’re still down here. tell tuan to get his butt out. he hasn’t called me yet. good shit in GGXXS…practice that chun! i know team texas has taught you how to hit confirm better than that =/
if i missed anyone, my bad. this took me an hour to write as it is…robin, billy, i want you guys to play next time. broke bastards. maybe the next c3, i wont be living at home, and thus, can stay for poker. WHATS GOOD. GGs!
edit: ross/paul - my chun mirrors with steve were casuals…thought i’d get some games in before he had to play against nasser. but his full parry definitely caught me by surprise…i knew he was looking for it, but didn’t think that i picked the wrong time to hit the kick button. looks like i pulled a justin wong
