Team Last Minute (#6) Runner Up
Everyone else, a hearty handshake

Info:
I had no idea what i was doing, so the event took much longer than it should of. apparently i was supposed to tally win/loss records (oops). so that explains the three-way face off. :confused:

I’ll post highlights and any other info i missed later in the week.


EDIT:

Highlights:

-Akuma predictics his partner will be (dum,dum,duuum) Everdred, due to their contrasting styles of play.

-C.O.B. too displays his psychic prowess by forseeing the inevitable (uuuweeeeuuu) 3-way tie in the early stages of the tourney. This was due to my noob-ness =.

-Katsu’s pixel-life Q REFUSES to succumb to Chibi’s (ibuki) air kunai xx sa1 chip attempt. He parries ALL but ONE hit. KNOCKOUT! The crowd went NUTZ.

-Shin Neo Snake(Q) and Katsu(Q) exchange like 5 blocked Dash Punches a piece. Wierd. Were they both afraid to go for the parry attempt?

-Akuma (hugo) swats the pesky Zar’s (ibuki) anti-air-option select: hugo jumps in, ibuki anti-airs w/ crouch fierce, hugo parries, ibuki super jump cancels off of the parry!, ibuki goes for the air throw attempt during hugos parry animation!!..Hugo…air-techs!!! Team Discovery later takes the set 2-1 :open_mouth: You had to be there. The shit looked so choreographed.

-Justin and KOFiend show up late and try to establish a team. Nice try guys =/.


#2

I used Alex too. …once.


#3

yo syid shout out to you for running the tourney very well


#4

GG to everyone I played yesterday.

First off to Katsu for parrying Ibuki’s SAI staving off death, even if for a short while. Sorry I had to take off man. Shit came up. But you’ve got a solid Q. Just turtle a little more.

Akuma: you have a solid Hugo. wake up 720 owns my soul. :looney:

Kevin: I’ve never been shut down by a nerco like that before. I’ll have to re-think how I play against him.

Shaun: Nice ryu. just get used to using SAIII some more.

C.O.B: I’m supposed to be the makoto of CF. :rolleyes:

Shin snake: Keep working on the Q as well. He has a hard time fighting makoto but he can still win.

Zaelar: Nice ken. Just try to use more c.lk to get people off your ass and less fireballs

Spooky: Work on that Yun man.

Chibi: Good Ibuki. Nice try with the daggers against my partner. :wgrin:

Zar: Two Ibuki’s on one team?!?! And the matter of the fact is that I had a harder time fighting you with all them cross-ups and such. Even more props for keeping the “offical” tourney together. :wink:

Everdred: You have an annoying Remy. :annoy: Soo much goddang turtling! :lol:

Once again, GG to all and I hope see most of you at CF when I decide to randomly show up after class. :wgrin:


#5

y is it that i c other ppl switch characters and i was told that i can’t. GG, can’t wait for the next. And props to spooky for giving me his share of the “winnings” or “entry fee back” and props to all!


#6

good games to all… that tourny was fun. i wish i didn’t have my issues till the end… (kofiend peer pressure is the same as his yang pressure, losing my wallet like a dummy)

next 2 on 2 I want Akuma on my team again his Hugo is going places.

Makoto Scrub I’m glad I finally played you. I was suprised to see you have a very decent makoto = sense of fear.

To the winning teams… You guys deserve that money… and I owe Akuma 5 bucks.

Arturo… money match me next time you at cf again. I don’t care if I lose as long as I play you in 3s.

haha… Justin and Kofiend on team together last minute late entry… UMMM NO.

  1. mad late

  2. not random pick

  3. Justin AND kofiend… need I say more?

Kevin your necro is beastly I wanna see you versus mutant xp when he comes to NY so bad!

Zar good matches… jesus christ… one mistake and a chunk of life… the game is fun!

everyone else stay cool and keep coming to these “get- togethers”


#7

^^ yo i felt like i was on family fued where the other team wins at the last second…you guys stole my food >_<

it was…dare i say fun…im actually dissapointed i didnt get to prove ken is hugo’s training dummy (due to a -shock- lack of kens) but oh well theres always next time

biscuit -bop- remember to record the W/L next time
C.O.B. I demand a recount…or a rematch or something
Shaun: Are you even on srk? if you are I also demand a rematch of you


#8

meh, if u used the char once, i didnt bother to list it. For instance, Katsu use ryu once. Did you win that match w/ alex? i stepped away in mid battle.

lol he hasnt played 3s since Oct 05, guy. Guilty Gear owned his soul! (R.I.P. Anarchcade) . Still did ok despite the rust.

arg. what i meant was , if you win w/ that character you cant switch up. sorry for the misunderstanding:sweat:

keep your eyes open for another 3s roullette 2v2 team event sometime during the 2nd wk of June.

GG’s to ALL

:encore:

Hey, you ran a good tourney.

Props to everyone I fought, having played CvS2 right before I played 3s messed me up a bit.

Q is fun. Have to work on Ken first though.

It was a good tourney and next time you might consider using both Cabinets for team tourneys. Nevertheless 25 matches + the faceoff in 4 hours isnt bad. Good job:clap:
