Thanks to everyone that helped run the tournies(foxstep, C_M, Judgmentday, erik looked like he was helping out a bit as well and anyone else).

Of course special thanks to eugene(judgmentday)since well… This tourny wouldnt have been possible of course with out. Of course thats not to say I dont think he is crazy for putting up that kinda money lol. But it brings the community togther in a sence, and I suppose in a way thats what its for, so that was nice. So umm yea thanks to him as it wouldnt have been possible.

Woulda been nice if there wasnt as many stick problems, but then again I guess some of them may have been since its been so long since ive acctualy sat down to play or something shrug…

Whatever the case umm yea good job to everyone that umm did well in the tournies. And it was nice to see everyone again. And thanks to nick for letting me sleep at his house for the night.

fun tournament overall. ricky took ALL the midwest’s money and owned people in pretty much everything. cvs2 and 3S weren’t even that close, and the grand finals scores were 3-0 in both. this tourney made me realize that I’M NEVER GOING TO ANOTHER ARCADE TOURNAMENT IN MY LIFE. i thought i learned my lesson after going 2 and out at MWC last year, but i had to try again. it was so frustrating to miss reaction type stuff, like RC psycho crusher to a low jump that i always hit, but get a roll instead. getting random rolls w/ blanka instead of RC electricity is tight also. or to miss CC’s, that was mint. not being able to shosho against P-groove is tight too. for some reason i lose my patience playing cvs2 on arcade also and don’t go for guaranteed setups w/ sakura. instead i activate from far away and start w/ standing rh (like a scrub), which gets parried and i get fucked up. i lost to TKK in both the winners and losers. good matches, but i would’ve LOVED to have my agetec. i pride myself on my execution so much, and it’s super frustrating to miss basic stuff.

you’ll see the vids, that shit was pathetic.

MI is dope, and i appreciate the hospitality shown, especially after i was running my mouth in the MI is garbage thread. i thought it was funny how when i was playing TKK, people would talk shit and what not. for example, “i thought MI was garbage dog?” among other stuff. i deserved it, and i zoned it out anyways. MI is also dope b/c i never saw a single cop car w/ a radar gun while i was going 80.

shoutouts:

TKK- great to finally meet you. that P-groove is really solid, and you were a class act all around. trying to calm the crowd down during our match and letting me switch sides was very nice of you. i’ll get that ken in 3S someday also, lol. you gotta come down to the next c-bus tourney so i can play you on my own stick.

VDO- that P-groove is even sicker than before. if P-groove could red parry, i’d probably win 3 out of 10 matches against you.

terrell- thanks for the housing, and your huge TV and in-dash DVD player were tight.

ricky, cheese master, cullen, obot, kalonji, nick, ghettoontherise, julian, and EVERYBODY else, nice to see you guys again.

i’m bad on names and i’m sure i forgot all kinds of people, so my bad.

PEACE

Thanks for the props,I need to come and play with ya’ll in ohio some times (when ya next tourney is on) anyway Your a good player I"mma be honest I thought you’d be VERY weak but I was wrong you got a good A-groove game thing is I used to play that same team (ask VDO,JULIAN) I base my WHOLE game off trying new shit. I’ve been from A to N to C to K and now P all in tourney play,Pretty much whateva I like to play for the moment.

Ricky owned me in CVS2 and 3S I should have played him in CVS2 with a team/groove that I"m more comfy with instead of sticking to my P groove shit which I think I"m about equal to VDO with now anywho thats what it’s all about,Miss out on 1500 that day to learn to play better another day,PLus I look at it like this I lost to Probably the 2nd best player in the country that just came from JAPAN so everybody else got some shit to worry about when I play em.PEACE


#6

And I play C groove and sit on my ass.


#7

Ohio Mid Noon Mass 5 is coming up in July, keep your eyes open, its gunna be awesome.


#8

I am better than VDO in P groove cuz I play P groove like I play C groove… and C groove > P groove thereby… I am best P groover. (this is a joke… so don’t take it seriously).


#9

#10

lol, my bad. i had a long drive ahead of me and couldn’t find you after saying goodbye to everybody else. good shit in casual though, that P-groove is too sick.

me- “here’s MY P-groove hotness…” then i get nearly OCV’d…

VDO- “maybe you should just stick w/ A-groove”

LOL too good.

I cant believe I havent posted yet!!! Whats up with that?
Just wanted to say good stuff to everyone. I enjoyed hanging with everyone. I ran my mouth a lot, ran a few bets. I won every bet I made that wasnt on myself. Through betting Ive learned to never put money on certain people. At this tourney I learned that I am one of those people.

To everyone wondering about the footage I shot. Well Im probably going to give the majority of it to JD to host on his website… but only after I can get it off of the camera (which was my cousins) that I gave back.

Lets hope my cousin finished with his cam soon…

Also, if my random mouth running offended anyone my bad, you should have asked me to be “shhhh!!!” (Not that I would have done it, but it does increase your chances).


#12

Didn’t you lose a dollar to my friend George, when you bet against me when I played Cullen? =P It was good seeing you again Obot and it was good to play cvs2 competitively after such a long hiatus. Thought I had finally kicked tournament pressure, but it came back pretty hard at this tourney haha. Had a great time, props to JD and everyone that was running things.

Some random highlights, for me at least:

Seeing EGB(?) go nuts after beating Ricky in casuals lol (Obot, you better upload the vid of that one)

Seeing TKK play in person, your P-Groove is insane man, when you were parrying Vice’s lightning leg move I was like :wow:

VDO’s P-Groove is always a pleasure to watch, gets sicker everytime

Seeing a high level of play that I will never reach lol

Not going 2 and out for once

Anyways, that’s about it, hope to see a lot of you at the next Cleveland Tourney.

I wanted to give a final update on the ongoing game for the past month that’s about to come to an end regarding the song contest. The game is set as follows:

I have approximately 100 songs based on video games uploaded on my server in the form of a contest ( http://www.mayn-event.com ). The contest is known as Contest 1 on the directory of “Website Contests”.

Each song is assigned a certain amount of points. If that person correctly guesses the game title the song is from, he/she wins those amount of points. Points are divided as follows:
0100 = Very Easy
0200 = Easy
0500 = Standard
1000 = Hard
5000 = Very Hard
??? = Bonus

So as the points increase, the difficulty for guessing the song’s game title increases as well. The person who receives the most points at the end of this contest will receive $100 check in their name from me. As everyone who knows me, I will pay out once every thing is verified. The Top 3 will receive posters that were advertised at the arcade that I ran a couple of weeks back. For more info on that, look on the Main Page (after the splash page), or go to Promotion Packages.

Back to the game: The only catch is, this contest has been going on in increments of 10 songs per week, for the past few weeks…so there are people who’s already accumulated a lot of points. So I uploaded all 100 so that everyone has a chance to play catch up and download some cool songs to boot. The rankings are as follows:

1st - 34600pts - Nothxs - From Shoryuken.com
2nd - 13200pts - Shadow - From TekkenZaibatsu.com
3rd - 08900pts - Tribal - From TekkenZaibatsu.com
4th - 05400pts - Smeg - From Soundtrack Central.com
5th - 01900pts - Dhsu - From ???

Don’t let the points intimidate you; have fun with it. If you feel game to participate, submit your answers to contest01@mayn-event.com and I will respond as soon as possible regarding your guesses and additional details (accumulated points, rules, etc).

There are 100 songs total: over 200MB worth of songs!

When the contests come to an end, I will begin Phase 2 of my site. I would like to thank everyone for making this a successful run in my tournament tenure. Thanks to Panther, Foxstep, JTyme, CheeseMaster, TKK, VDO, and Earl for the tournament help while I was running around.

Thanks to Union Cane, Obot64, DreStinson, and Forgo for recording as much tournament footage as they could.

Thanks to Lea and Rook for their incredibly talented artwork. And thanks to all of the participants for making this tournament possible.
