For people who asked, all Sunday tournaments were cancelled.
Apex should be up shortly. Although busy, I was able to send the results to Massu (I don’t have an Apex account). So it should be up today.
Start Button, if you are reading this, I was wondering if I can get some of the pictures you took. I want to submit them to the magazine of choice if it’s okay with you.
And right now since I have the opportunity, I would like to thank you; all of you:
–Thanks to Fly for stopping by and attending our little mini-tournament. It certainly wouldn’t have been the same without you. Even after all of this time, I still have a hard time beating you; some things never change, I guess.
–Thanks to Wizzards Staff for allowing me to hold the tourney, and enduring my requests.
–Thanks to Time Zone arcade for bringing the 2nd machine in.
–It was nice to see Tony from Flint again. Glad to see you got in the tournament; you almost made some big upsets; that “Barlog” is a beast…!
–Speaking of long time no see, from the depths of Michigan, Matt C! You had a very intense match with DreStinson, just like old times. Take care and hope to see you again soon.
–XXL: Very cool person, and a good representation of the gaming persona that is MTL. And he knows Transformers! “Dark our Lightest Hour”…! Quiet people, I know it’s backwards :lol:
–Cool to see Bryce again, even if only for a bit here and there. I don’t think I’ve ever beat you in a tournament, so that must mean we’ll meet again. Until then.
–Saw Final Showdown’s brother…It was a shame that the 5 of us didn’t get reunited as we should: Team Evolution–Zack, Me, AVX, Final Showdown, and Ghettoontherise…that would’ve been flat out stupid :lol:
–Always a pleasure to see Vega; the ONLY person who know where I got the jersey from! His match with Seph was one of the best tournament matches…! Good job, my friend.
–I would also like to thank Sutrcane for attending and contributing to the $500 tournament. Throughout the months, he is the only person I’ve seen outside of Ann Arbor and D-Town who’s made an effort to get better and attend tournaments as frequent as we do. It will pay off in the end, trust me; you have greatly improved since I stopped by at Game Hits in January, ten fold. Yes, I remember.
–Huge props goes to George Massu, who actually helped me run the tournament when I was either playing CvS2, 3rd Strike, or was just flat out tired. A lot of his tournaments served as good preps for Saturday…quite a few of us would be nowhere near as ready if the tournaments held by you and Cheese Master would not exist. Thanks again for volunteering to pick up and drop off ChoiBoy.
–Much like Massu, thanks to ArcticNinja, who ran the side tournaments on Saturday. Looks like I chose the right person for the right job!
–Major, MAJOR props goes to DreStinson, the person who recorded roughly 7 hours worth of the $500 tournament. I think we all need to give him a hand for all the hard work he’s done not only for Saturday, but for the past YEAR of recorded tournaments from our first CvS2 tourney, to December’s tournament, May’s tournament, ranking tournaments…the list goes and on. I think I speak for all of Michigan when I say Thank you.
–Thanks to RedDevil for holding a portion of the tournament while I was away, and for teaching me a lot about the fighting game genre since 94…8 years…You and I are like the only ones left from the original Mainstreet If you remember Milton, I have something to tell you when you get a chance.
–Thanks to WKDCLWN for bringing the tapes and repping for Indiana. I’m still watching that Zavar/VDO match and seriously thinking about putting it online…truly a classic and the quality was top notch.
–LioKaiser…Let me know when you find out who the silhouette is in my jersey. I see you later.
–Ali, hope to see you soon, especially in CvS2…I’m sure you want revenge from the last time, and I’m never one to back away from a challenge. Judgment Day will be here.
–Cool to see Ghettoontherise, as always. I’ve come to the conclusion that we are not related on the account that Michigan is too stupid And you still owes AVX $32971097309127039.92
–Thanks for Womack Brothers for stopping over. LowDown had one of the funniest moments in the tournament against Final Showdown, and Jinmaster Jr did an excellent job in the tournament, despite being what…10? 11? See you guys later. Big 'Gat Boy…!
–Major props to the entire AA crew: Cheese Master, Scott Yim, and the Karoukis Brothers. Incredibly good job to AJ who reached the Top 10 and being there for every match I called out with him in it…heh heh…!
–Thanks to TKK for all the support throughout the recent weeks, and the day of the tournament.
–Major thanks to Final Showdown for housing Canada for the weekend. I’m sure they’ve told you but I had to get my say in.
–Gary: Ah, Useless! :lol:
–Bizounce: Sorry you had to leave, but you are commended for your support after what transpired Saturday evening. A true friend, as always.
–Thanks to Start Button for bringing his camera, and doing very well representing Wizzards in the tournament.
–Nate: Excellent job despite being tired throughout the day. New Flint’s Champ? Hmm…
–Major Props to Best for entering straight into the losers bracket, and STILL placing the Top 10; in a business suit, no less!
Hey, you owe me an autograph! Otherwise, excellent job repping MTL. I see another rival in you and TKK. Time will tell in regards to how it will transpire.
–Thanks to Snake for putting the most time into the game as of late and reflecting that game to make us all better players. And nothing like a classic Snake/VDO match for a Michigan tournament, that’s for sure. There was like 8 heart attacks and 3 strokes from the tension that you guys had in the tournament.
–Major props goes to Arcade Kid for doing well in CvS2, and definitely 3rd Strike! Beating Choi in any tournament ( except burger eating, to which I am king) gets thumbs up in everyone’s book. Cool person in general, despite the Transformers incident.
–I have sent in an application to Capcom in JS Master’s name for the position of the next MvC announcer on their upgrade. That’s all I gotta say. Good job in the tournament, my friend.
–Words go without saying to VDO. Much like others, you made a major contribution to the weekend in question. From housing Choi to dropping off Jeron and Ortiz, and just being yourself in general. Thanks again, and let’s take the CvS2 title home when we get to Iowa.
–Jeron Grayson: Incredibly cool person; like visiting a cousin who came out of town to visit. Good job in the tournament, placing 4th, which isn’t too shabby, considering the level of competition at this point.
–Sotha Bun: Excellent job in the tournament. You seem to be a fan favorite among the east coast, and looks like you found a healthy rival by the name of VDO. Hopefully, I’ll get to see the next matchup between the two. Oh, and getting Soundwave is harder than I thought…you should’ve bought of the millions of stuff I had in my car…! Oh well; I’ll keep trying. Oh, and here:
–Thanks to Ortiz for visiting and showing his CvS2 skills, not to mention winning 3rd Strike. Eat all of your food next time :lol:
–Last but not least, thanks to John Choi for taking home the gold and ultimately showing all of us how the absolute best plays Capcom v SNK 2. Thanks for knowing WHO Galvatron is and accepting my eating behavior :lol: And thanks for being major cool as a player and person in general. We will meet again.
More Updates to Come
