Battle at the Border 2 Results and Shoutouts


#1

Thank you all to everybody who attended this tournament especially those who came out from Houston, Austin, and San Antonio and helped support our scene. I’m glad I ordered the extra tags and what not because our tournament had an attendance of about 80 players. I apologize for the few tournaments that ran late, it was hard making brackets when I myself am playing in different games and so are my bracket runners. But without further a do here are the results for all 9 tournaments, none were canceled.

Someone fill me in with the info missing. It is marked with question marks.

Highlights:
J.D vs Nican 3S Grand Finals, damn I wish somebody recorded these. Nican coming from loser bracket goes up 3-0 and looks like he is going to reset the bracket and then J.D comes back and pulls off some very clutch matches and wins 4-3.

DEMONJIM vs Suavion ST came down to last match with all 3 rounds being won be pixels.

Brawl Grand Finals Team Sexy Legs comes from the loser bracket and resets the bracket. It comes down to the last match with all players at 1 stock and over 100% health.

Jan vs Pozerwolf GGAC Grand Finals, I started laughing cause Pozerwolf had a cheering section and they were chanting his name during the matches.

SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME MORE HIGHLIGHTS THESE WERE THE ONLY ONES THAT I SAW.

#12

Btw, people have a habit of using my account >.>

Though I pretty much said all that above anyways.

It was fun meeting all the good players, reminding me how far I have to go before I can get anywhere in these games, and had a great time. I’m glad everyone was already talking my upcoming June event (I wish I had a flyer but I think most people at least know others that post on SRK), and hope to see some familiar faces.

I’m going to finally picking up the arcade stick and throwing down the controller, and hopefully in a month’s time be able to use it. I hope to see everyone June 21st!


#13

I continue to have no answer for Houston in CvS2. Hopefully next time things will be different.

Good games to everyone in CvS2, Tekken, and that other guy I played in Arcana Heart.

Ditto on the hot dogs being awesome!
