Today’s feature at Wizzards Arcade was 3rd Strike, and a little something different in CvS2, entitled the Grudge Match Series. Basically, if you have a beef with another gamer, call him/her out in CvS2 in best 3 out of 5 (or whatever format chosen) and bring your ‘A’ game come tournament day. Winner receives $$$, Michigan entitlements (best Michigan Title, best N-Groove Player Title, etc), and good old fashioned trash talk, which Michigan is known for.
First and foremost, here are the 3rd Strike Results:
"Tournament Known Killa"
“Snake” aka "The Ghost"
Winners bracket finals feature TKK and Judgment Day. JDay loses the 3 out of 5 faceoff and plays Snake in the losers. JDay gets eliminated sending Snake to the finals shortly after a rough defeat in the winners by Wayne State University’s own Dorian. TKK defeats Snake, bringing the score to 3-1 and winning the 3rd Strike tourney. Thanks to all who attended, and congrats to Mario (Last Name N/A) who hasn’t been on the 3rd Strike scene in quite awhile, yet still came in 4th using Yun SA3, Alex SA 1+3, and Hugo SA 1+2. Great job

Snake (Same Team) v VDO (PGroove Raiden, Kyo, 2Joe) (5 out of 9)
Winner Declared CvS2 Michigan’s Best
VDO was winning 4-2, when Snake’s controls completely went out on him. Controls needed repair and will be serviced tomorrow, or as late as Tuesday.
Because of this, another Grudge Match may occur. I will keep the Michiganders in mind when the next tournament transpires or when the next Grudge takes place. You could be on the next fight card
A good time was had by all, and congrats to all the winners. Until Next Time.
