I finished 9th overall in my recent tourny which I feel is a massive jump from 14th place that I was getting consistently. My matches won’t be recorded as only the qtr finals and finals are recorded.
I lost my semi final match against an Abel player who knew the Guile match up really well. wasn’t a thrashing, but it doesn’t change the fact that I got outplayed and that Abel is still my worst matchup as well as Viper. Had tough matches against Akuma, Ryu, Rufus leading up to my semi final.
Against one of the top sagats in my 2nd round match in the winners bracket, I was fortunate to gain a lifelead and then playing in a disgusting fashion by playing the full screen fireball game until Sagat was forced to chase me with the clock winding down. AFter that, he said to me “That is why the match up is 6-4 in favour of Guile”, which I tend to disagree on.
Given Guile’s big improvements in SSF4, I felt I underacheived given there were 70 competitors. Next month I hope to make a push for the Top 8.
