#2

Wow. Freakin’ JR?! Where the heck has he been?


#3

heard geesemaster got 9th in tekken


#4

JR = Image right? That is hella hella random to me. Who knew that guy even played 3rd Strike. Haven’t heard about him in years.

P.S. - Thanks Mandel for bringin us the info.


#5

Evan, that’s not Image. JR Rodriguez is an Akuma player that’s hella raw. He’s been around for a while.


#6

Oh alright, that makes sense. That guy is a beast.


#7

I just paid 15 dollars for fucking internet here, so here’s some random notes:

Beasley was one match away from top 8, he was one pixel away from winning his match against Nuki, but his sky high claw whiffed and he lost :frowning: it was a heartbreaker

I lost to two Dhalsims (FUKCING DHALSIM WHAT A DICK), had a close match against Shirts, ended up 4th in my pool
looking back on it, I should have picked DJ against them, oh well

Kusumondo was in my pool, and he is fucking good. Like, really god damn good. I would have rather fought him than stupid Dhalsim though :frowning:

also, apparently Ryan Hart got rushed to the hospital on friday because he hadn’t been eating or drinking anything and fainted, he was back today though

edit: more stuff:
-fatbear was 1 match from semis in 3s, and was also close to semis in cvs2
-sf4 is awesome
-hd remix is lame (only 6 characters, no one is playing it lol)
-my ST prediction: nuki beats kusumondo in grand finals
-bang the machine was good
-julian blake sucks

EDIT 2:
ALMOST FORGOT RAYBLADEX WINS VF5 IN DALLAS

dude is crazy, flying all over the place, what a champ


#8

RBX!!! Nice Work.


#9

LOL @ 5 Chuns in the 3S top 8.


#10

is there any complete brackets? I want to see how far the people I lost to got.


#11

Yeah, even worse is that the chun’s placed 1st - 5th. Those finals must have been fun to watch.:confused:


The top 8 for Marvel looks all goofy too.


#12

I heard MegamanDS got top 8 with Megaman/Sentinel/Guile. That guy has some pretty good Magnus/Ororo combos, I don’t know why he doesn’t use them. I like how Zach would match up against that team.


#13

That’s a pretty beastly top 8, Dann. I don’t know if you could have cracked that.
:confused:

Spoiler

yup :rock:

There is definitely some question in my mind about how high some of those 8 would place at a local tourney with everybody showing up. shrug

When somebody from SoCal was mad at me they said that MegamanDS knew more Megaman tricks than I did, but I haven’t played him ever that I can recall. He’s fun to watch. One of my favorite things about him from my ignorant perspective is that he’s crazy and just picks whatever team he feels like. I have no idea how he decides whom to pick, but I’ve seen him do great with all sorts of madness. :smile:

I heard that some Colossus player came close(?) to qualifying - Pablo? VDO? Maybe even MegamanDS? I’m curious.


#14

That Collosus player was in my bracket (not Pablo). H Bracket was ridiculously easy. I went 2 and 2 in it so I’m not to dissapointed but I should have won my first match and I had a damn good chance of reaching semi’s. My last set was actually a good fight. For a guy who goes 2 and out repeatedly at Zach’s, that says something.

I don’t mean to disrespect any of the players in that bracket (Randy Lew was in there) but it was quite low level compared to the bi-weeklys at Preppys. Even the HUB. :confused: Any top Seattle player had a real chance this year of making finals.

I played a guy named Mono who has a really good Guile. I wanted to match up Guiles against him and see who’s was better, but I decided to go for the sure win instead. I picked Preppy’s team and clinched it. :bgrin:

Side Note- Fatbear won a 300 dollar money match against Kai in 3rd Strike 10-4. The whole thing is on video.


#15

Yeah too bad we didn’t come down for marvel. We might have been able to make some noise.


#16

grats to fatbear for his mm victory

also to Ray for winnin VF down in TX, even though I was pretty sure I posted that already, but I guess not.


#17

Congratulations to Frank, without him I couldn’t have created the best Astaroth customized character in history with the name Frankdadank.


#18

Okay, so like…why didn’t any of “the big names” head down to Evo?


#19

God damn. Congrats fatbear on that MM. 10-4 is rape. I’ve gotta see that video.


#20

Awesome seeing 9TNine and Pablo again though we didn’t talk much.

Met Airthrow and Brentobox. Real chill dudes.
Met Zass but didn’t really talk to him.

Met XTG as well. He liked me giving him rep.

All of them but Zass said they want me to move back so I can be apart of the scene again since I had kinda had a falling out due to moving and shit that has hopefully blown over.

I heard Kuenai and Paul Lee were there but I didn’t meet them.
