As for my own thoughts on the tournament…

3 words: ISSAC FUCKING GRAHAM!

It’s pretty obvious that we need 2 CvS2 cabinets for the larger tournaments. The R4 Challenge is the fastest tourney you can possibly have in that game and it still took 3 hours to finish. CvS2 didn’t even finish until almost 1am and that was with single match losers bracket and less entrants than R4.

It was great to see Will.

It was also great to hang with Pete. We’ll have to play Tekken 5 again sometime soon.

I should have beaten Eric in the R4 tourney.

Taking requests on what to hit Nam with in CvS2 (requests were Roll Roll Flashkick, Vega Air Super and something else, I forget) and hitting them all.

Tylor is a JD’ing monster. Too bad I missed him JD all of Cammy’s Rising Super.

Dorothy is the future of shit talk.

Big thanks to Marc for coming in despite having what appeared to be the flu or strep throat or something horrible that didn’t all him to talk much.

Big thanks to Jason for stepping up and running CvS2 in my absense while I taped Marvel.

The R4 Challenge was a lot of fun once again. The back to back draw games were soooooo crazy. I’m hoping to put that footage up near the end of the week or maybe earlier when I get time to edit and put the matches in the proper order.

The 5 on 5 was enjoyable. There were a couple of things that really stuck out in my mind though:

Big props to CQ for being fucking clutch against Jon and Eric despite being almost completely out of the scene.

Chris/Matt/Gerjay vs ROC, along with Matt vs Eric are matches that immediately come to mind as those Sauga should have won but didn’t pull out for one reason or another. Those 3 early matches created a hole that Sauga just couldn’t dig out of.

Jonstar isn’t nearly what he used to be. He needs to shake A LOT of rust.

Nathan played like a machine. He should have beaten Bryan and clinched earlier with the Double Snapout that somehow whiffed.

I guess that’s it for now. I’m sure this thread will fill up quicky with shit talk and woulda coulda shoulda so I’ll read when I wake up in the morning. GG’s to everyone I played.

EDIT:

Alex is a 15 year old ORBIT regular who made a lot of people look dumb today with basic Cable/Blackheart lockdown.

Top 5 of the singles tournament and the entire 5 on 5 were taped.


#6

highlight of the night:

instead of shaking my hand after I beat Matt, Matt told me to “fuck off”.


#7

genei G3nN!!!


#8

yahoo! i only beat 3 people but i place all the way up at 5th!!

edit* i’d like to note “chun” has the gayest nick ever, gayer than mine, but he seemed like a friendly guy so it’s all good!


#9

#10

CURT system owns me for free :sad: … and can we get the full story on what happened between Marvin and Matt??? I didn’t watch the match, only saw Matt telling Marvin to fuck off. :rofl:


#11

Wow 5th at a tournament? You’re almost at my level now FatestPig.

That’s not a nick you dumb fuck. That’s his REAL NAME. Chun Ting Che of Team Waterloo!


#12

i have no idea what’s wrong… probably strep, cuz i’m not really coughin / sneezing? i dunno. i hate doctors, so i’ll just let it heal on its own

personal highlights:

losing to will several times, but beating him once eventually (i don’t think i ever met will in the first place, so it was good meeting him)

my one victory in ratio4 vs strider with the clutch super at the end (i want that vid justin)

s++ against arcade legend, after losing to him countless times in casuals at orbit (i hate ur ryu)

i hate jay

i didn’t have to fix that many games! it was amazing! js didn’t break a thing!

notes many thanks to ryan, will, jay, tommy, and whoever else ran the brackets for 3s. i know i was supposed to be tourney director, but on top of being busy at orbit, my throat killed. thnx guys


#13

Jiggabry!!


#14

yeah man, gotta give him props for this tourny.
At least all the shit-talk is done now…:arazz:


#15

:lol: I think it’s just beginning. :lol:


#16

np, hope you feel better

What teams were used in the 5 on 5?


#17

This is from memory so I may be off a bit…

SAUGA CREW
Chris = Cable/Sentinel/Cyclops
Matt = Sentinel/Storm/Commando
James = Sentinel/Cable/Cyclops
Bryan = Magneto/Storm/Sentinel
Gerjay = Sentinel/Storm/Commando

TOSF
Steven = Iron Man/Storm/Cable
Stephen = Blackheart/Cable/Sentinel
Jon = Magneto/Cable/Sentinel
G3nn = Magneo/Cable/Sentinel
Eric = Magneto/Cable/Sentinel

I’m a bit hazy on Stephen and Eric’s team but I think those teams are accurate.

EDIT:

I lost the CvS2 brackets and had to do the results from memory (re-constructed them at home). I didn’t recall seeing Ian vs Jason but figured that he’d take down Cyrus (no offense Stavros). I edited the results.

As for Marvin’s placing, I post the results based on where they were in the bracket. Marvin was the last match of the 1st round of losers so his result got posted last.

OMG how could I forget

“Excuse me. Yes excuse me. I just wanted to tell you you have a big head. I’m trying to watch CvS2 and your big head is in the way.” Eric should have got a punch in the face right there from Pererick. That had to be one of the most assholish things I’ve ever heard but fuck man was it funny. Kin and I were dying.


#18

Really fun tourney. Props to ppig for knocking me into losers in R4, Mo’s Alex and good games against Wing in CvS2. Saw lots of good games in all games yesterday.


#19

so he uses chun and his name is chun…


#20

3 questions

WHY is sauga so quiet?

WHY is CQ’s GF so loud?

WHY is JS Master so good?
