Well for me I have a couple great moments. moments you are proud of, or just moments where they’re super cool or something like that.
For me, I’ve had a couple double perfects. Those are always nice. Always make you feel good about your game, too.
In particular though, one time I had a fight at the tournament I recently placed 4th at, where it was winner’s quarter finals. I was placed up against a Guile, who is no slouch. I was also pretty poor at the Guile match up so I was somewhat skeptic as to how I’d do. What ended up happening was in the first match I lost pretty bad. At one point, he even air grabbed me out of an FBA and taunted. Everyone watching was getting hype, but I just laughed. Taunts don’t effect me, I just thought it was a funny move. The guile player was talking smack too.
Second match, and I lost the first round, (doing somewhat better) and in the second round I was on the ropes. He had a lot of health left and I had nothing left, really. At this point I still hadn’t use my ultra. I play this guy occasionally and he’s been caught by my FADC ultra trick once before, so he knows to be smarter than that. Basically what happened… I did it the other way around. I focused a couple sonic booms, and didn’t do the ultra, cause he was waiting for it. So then he throws another sonic boom, I block it, then just do a reversal ultra… what do you know, he was shooting another sonic boom! I hit him for huge damage and from that point finished the round… now I was pumped. After that, I was not going to lose.
So I didn’t! From that point on I straight up kicked his ass. Seemed to figure him out all in that one instant, the ultra must have mindfucked him really bad or something. He was really surprised that the taunts didn’t effect me, but I was too distracted cause normally when I play a matchup like vs Guile I think it’s more fun than intense. Against Ryu, a taunt prboably would have phased me. But yeah I ended up beating him and it was one of the most hyped matches of the whole tournament. It was intense and my heart was beating out of my chest for a while, but once I got into my groove and he couldn’t get out of my mixups, and couldn’t camp with sonic booms and not let me in, I was feeling really good. It was just a sick SF moment.
Also, the first time I showed up to ranbats and won on my first day. That was a shock for me, but it was a damn good feeling. I’ve never really won at anything other than SF, so to have my first ranbat win like that… pretty damn good feeling. Please share yo!
