Hagerstown 11/23 - 2 man team marathon tourney results
Here are the results of the 2 man team Hagerstown tourney results. All tourney points were calculated for 14 players (7 teams)
Before I get started, I think that everyone should know that even though Shawn and Tommy officially won this tournament, they decided to donate their winnings PLUS 3 mas-sticks to the out of town players who travelled up for the tournament. Shawn and Tommy gave away a $150 arcade style table to James Paige and a $60 mas-stick to Will Martin for the great competition. The remainder of the out-of-town players THAT STAYED for the whole tournament each received a custom made mas-stick for the great competiton as well. (Hey Eric, I want that blue tinted mas-stick back. Kidding) Over $300+ in sticks were given out free of charge by Shawn and Tom. I hope all the generousity and hard work we put into these sticks is appreciated.
If you left the tournament early, you missed out on a free $60 surprise mas-stick just for entering.
Due to a large number of players being caught in a traffic jam, we delayed the tournament a few hours until most of the players arrived. If 12-16 players had already been there, we would have started the tourney on time. We didn’t want to start the tourney at 1:00 with only 6-8 players there at the time.

Only 10 players played. see Notes below for details.

Highlights - The match between Will (V-Akuma) and Tommy (V-Dhalsim) went to the final match with Will edging it out. Tommy got drunk by the end of the Alpha tourney. Damn you Tommy, why!!! Eric Lee pushed Will Martins (V-Gief) to the final round with his (V-Ryu) and just barely lost. Whew, real good match!
1st - Eric Lee - 1350 - (Ken, Ryu)
1st - Marc Pointer - 1350 - (Ryu, Chun Li)
3rd - Shawn Johnson - 1200 - (Necro, Alex)
4th - Dane Zacot - 1100 - (Dudley, Akuma)

8th - Will Martin - 700 - (Chun Li, Alex)
9th - Anthony - 550 - (Ken, Ryu)
9th - Toby Wantz - 550 - (Dudley)
11th - Joe - 250
11th - Corey - 250
11th - Matt - 250
11th - Josh - 250
Note: Joe/Corey/Matt/Josh left early due to the fact that there was no way they could catch up and win so they had to share the 11th-14th place points.
Highlights - Eric Lee’s team dominated 3rd Stike placing 1st and 2nd. Shawn Johnson’s (Necro) and Marc Pointer’s (Chun Li) went to the final round and inch of life with Marc Pointer winning the match. Anthony and Eric had some classic Ryu on Ryu matches with all the matches flip flopping back and forth. Shawn Johnson’s (Necro) defeated Will Martin’s (Chun Li and Alex). Will was one round up with Alex and had 3/4 life on the second round and Shawn’s Necro had no life left and Shawn’s Necro pulled a win out of his ass by coming all the way back and winning this round and the next for the victory. Marc Pointer and James Paige’s match went to the final round with James squeaking out the win. Note: Marc uncharacteristically uses Ryu the first match which may have cost him the victory?
Note 1: Tommy Newlin and James Paige were drunk at this point and were off their game. You guys crack me up.
Note 2: We switched Will Martin’s match against Eric Lee with a match with Dane Zacot upon will Martin’s request to make things more even. Shawn ended up having to defeat Will Martin twice and James Paige to secure the overall point lead.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You guys from out of town better start practicing Guilty Gear. It’s going to be a big part of future tourneys. Hey Drew, you have to get your butt up here next time and lay the smack-down on us with some of that vicitious Jam FDC.
Again, I want to thank everyone for coming and hope to see you again next time.
