** Charlotte , NC , Oct 11th **


#1

I just rolled back into GA and it’s 1:15 am but I’m reasonably sure there are still quite a few matches still left going on in Charlotte right now in CvS2 , MvC2 and possibly still 3S . Turn out was great (especially for 3S :D) and the competition level was high with “surprise” entrant justin Wong making the trip down from NYC with Arturo and Josh Wong to heat things up .

I ran the A3 brackets which had a smaller than expected turn-out but it was fun and over quickly (unlike CvS2 which was forced to be run in single match brackets with more entries than any other game featured even MvC2)

Here then are the final A3 results…

1st Arturo Sanchez
2nd Justin Wong
3rd J (???)
4th Lamont Price
5th Eric Lee
5th Derrick Q
7th Kevin Michael
7th Nhan
9th Ted King (Dhalsim scrub)
9th DL Barnes
9th Sami Ackerman
9th Anthony Carr
13th Jordan Harvey

Thanks to the Mindboggle staff for another great tournament and especially for all the room deodorizer which kept the stench to a more bearable level .

Ted

…oh , and Zero in SvC goes beyond broken . Arturo had 40+ wins using Zero’s unblockable set-ups into the infinite and ‘cursing’ his opponets forcing them to eat 3 reppaken combos then hitting them with the slide super:lame:

damn sounds like fun… wish i could have made it. i would have loved to play a3! also would have liked to have seen art’s take on svc. i haven’t really touched zero yet.

congrats to the winners, hope i can make the next one…


#3

haha damn ted already beat me to it.:smiley: tourney was great i think. i mean it was really hectic when everyone was showing up. there was no room to walk anywhere. im surprised 3s ended first since it was the last one to start. but for recap and results i guess, we had 42 entries for cvs2, 37 for mvc2, 32+ish for 3s, and bout 11-15 for the other games. this is all i can remember.

mvc2
1.justin wong…too fuking good
2. rick mears…philly representing
3.isaac graham…kewl seeing u again
4. darick perez…good shiet man
5. julian robertson
5. perry griffith

cvs2

  1. arturo sanchez
  2. justin wong
  3. jody
  4. darick perez
  5. lucious clayton
  6. jason harding

thats i can remember. i’ll get the official results tommorow after work. watching justin ocving everyone was a blast. it just goes to show how much gap there is between him and everyone else. cvs2 took way too long to finish. 3 am is not a good time to end a tourney. the sticks were iffy but no one really complained. everyone had their fair share of fuk ups. turn out was crazy. i can tell u this right now, we are definitely not holding 6 games for the next tourney. maybe 4-5 but 6, too crazy.

new buttons and new joysticks are in the works. next major tourney will most likely be held around dec or jan. imma find an exact date so people can request days off and us not having to overlap other tourneys. good shiet guys. i hope u guys made it home safely.

lates.

well i forgot to thank all the people that showed up. especially ted and mike for helping run brackets. that took such a huge weight off of our shoulders.i would also like to say it was kewl seeing everyone again. espcially all of md, local nc, and everyone else. this tourney was way too huge. especially for a small arcade like mindboggle. im thinking the next tourney, we gonna hold mvc2, 3s, cvs2, and ttt. we definitely need another cvs2 board if we wanna do 2 out of 3 or wat not. but i hope the next tourney will be much better than this one. not saying that this one was bad or anything but i really wanna put mindboggle on the map. much love to everyone and see u guys next time.

That tourney was really good, exceeded my expectations… if you missed it, you missed a DAMN good one…

I’m thinking late January for next time (don’t do it all close to the holidays, plz).

Hope everybody got back safe; more from me later.


#5

Ya this was a great tournament was a lot of fun, can’t wait for the next one. As for me, I was dissapointed with my results, but hey can’t win them all!

#10

Damn… posting 3 of the same shit… must be desperate for some attention there guy…

The very first thing I’d like to do is take a moment to apologize to Eric. V. and Darick P. I made some inferences regarding their attendance on the last few tournies prior to this; it was done in jest, but I had no way of knowing anything about their desire/reasons as far as that was concerned. Those two really helped raise the bar in Charlotte before Art and others started coming down, and our scene was better off for it. My bad, fellas.


The tournies all got started rather late, but that’s the only knock I have on the affair… well, I guess next time you can spread the machines out more. I got to finally meet some people (like Koop & Gammadynamite) besides chilling with all the familiar & semi-familiar faces. Everybody was mad cool, I mean everybody… :cool:

Thanks to all of the Mindboggle staff, excellent job. Thanks to non-employees that helped too, like Stinemire holding down 2 brackets, RoTeNdO (& others) with camera work & Jim “RekkaKen” bringing the TV/console along, just to name a few.

Big up to my Durham headz, you all did us very proud. I’m the only one who didn’t really put in any work… :(:lol: Still very satisfying to test your might against your game’s best player in the whole wide world in casual. Darrell ( “Seor Cl!” :lol: ), Lu, Shaun, Chad, Jeff (“Paul Shell” - you crazy, man :lol: )… good $hit.


Art, it got too late, I had to go on home. We’ll do that tr33 next time.

Isaac, good $hit, and good to see you man. Thanks for the kind words on my match. :slight_smile:

Dan (GammaD), we finally crossed paths… stay cool, and thanks for the bigman tips! :smiley:

Koop, you are mad funny and a cool cat as well…

Jose, Yosef, good $hit in 3S. Charlotte Josh, rugged Shaun, Israel, Dee, Thra, Jimmy, Brandon & all the Queen City headz; nice work & a solid Marvel showing.

Fayetteville CvS2 is still the truth. Hickory repped as well.

Colin has mad all-around game; much respect. Props to Perry on his Marvel performance as well, very impressive.

Shoutout to Jay the security guard; him hanging around the 2nd half probably got the jakes (real & fake) to stop sweating us so much, & he turned out to be pretty cool.

SC, GA, MD, VA, AL, other NC locations… just too many people to shout out. Stay up, fellas.

Thanks to everybody for attending, from the “big names” on down to little ol’ me… see y’all next time.


BTW, for anybody wondering, I was the black guy with glasses & a white/beige striped knit shirt that was constantly smoking outside.

Okay, now that I’m home at 4:07 pm today!! (I rested over at stinemire’s crib when we got there around 7ish earlier this morning… before playing more marvel that is :D) POKESyou, Justin, and Arturo have a safe trip back to NY and tell that Speed Racer wannabe to keep it below 15 miles over the speed limit and be careful around those damn walls!! (Cops pulled some guy ahead of us over, the light came on and I was like FUCK!! lol, shit was close and he came out of no where. One more thing, Justin tell that fool POKESyou that if I hear he didn’t score any or anything on you guys out today, Imma bust his ass! We’ll take that Georgia trip some other time, lol. (this guy wanted me to run him down there after we just got back and it was 7am! Shi’t I was done with driving.
