Wow what an event to attend! Seriously the most competitive and remembered NCR yet. Not being in the scene for awhile, then watching your good friends still wrecking shop brings back good childhood memories. The best part was the TOP 8 which consisted of people I have spent much time with and trained with in their respected games. It makes me thankful I live in such a strong and TALENTED area.
These same individuals have worked so hard and spent endless hours pushing one another to strive to be their best. For me, it was priceless watching Ricky Ortiz win in his very own hometown. Milpitas Golfland is literally 5 minutes away, which is the arcade he played and grew up at before becoming the amazing fighter he is today. His victory brought back some notable flashbacks at that arcade. Witnessing players come together, especially the old SVGL regulars root for Ricky as he FINALLY took out Daigo was breath taking.
I am glad we are still around to promote raw and unparallel talent even if we are just casual players or supporters. I think every person contributes and like a Street fighter character each individual holds a significant story. I love the old scene but encourage the new because deep down we are all Street Fighters.
Boy I am tired! till next time…
