Hey, this is Biran (or Biron, as Robin misspelled from my first C3 almost 2 years ago and which I never bothered to correct). I told Krost and UltraDavid awhile ago that I would get around to posting regularly here once I finally won one of these things (as opposed to being perennial 2nd) so here’s a start.
ST was actually on AE this time since nobody brought a DC. So rather than cheesing with claw like I normally do, I instead had to… cheese with o.claw.
As an aside (AKA technical ST stuff ahead), it seems most folks on SRK don’t realize that AE n.claw’s faulty wall dive motion actually originates from o.claw’s motion in arcade ST. O.claw also has 1 recovery frame advantage on all his crouching pokes compared to n.claw but they sure don’t make up for the Scarlet Terror, super, more throw damage, picking up his lost claw, and non-crossup wall dives pushing out rather than pulling in. Still, getting the right wall dive motion takes a higher place than all the rest in my view.
Anyway, I’m always up for real life ST (as opposed to practicing on GGPO) so if someone wants to play ST casuals and lives reasonably close to Germantown/Gaithersburg, feel free to hit me up. I have the arcade CPS2 board and a supergun (with 2 Seimitsu sticks) so we can play the real deal if you’d like (although I don’t feel it makes a difference).
Props to Comeback and Josh for always making the long trip to get some ST action with their boxers (actually, that doesn’t sound right). Nice job to Jay for taking 3S. I’ll be off sightseeing the Olympics in August so everyone have a blast next month, have a “good time” at Evo, and play more ST.
