Shouts later in the thread


#2

Thank you to EVERY FUCKING BODY that attended this years event!!! It was hot as the devil’s draws in the tournament room, but I swear I put the AC on 50 for the whole weekend. I want to give some shout out’s and this may take awhile, but I have alot of people to thank:

FR9 Original Staff:
Thank you to KYAH, PHI, LEIGH, JEFF (from Fla.), JEFF in the ATL, ANT, CHARLES, JOE, FRANCO, KAMAU, MALIK, ALLDAY, LOS, ICEAGE, JORDAN, TED, MEL, SAM, and OF COURSE MY LOVELY WIFE for helping my dumbass run FR9. There is no fucking way I could have ran FR9 without ya’ll. The funny thing is “running” was the key word for me this year as I was running back and forth between every tournament making sure everything was cool. It was so much easier with you guy’s there. I think I lost 10 pounds this weekend asking is everything cool. lol

Kyah: thanks for not getting sick this year and helping out a bit. lol Also thanks for the certificate man. I almost shed a tear.

Phi: thanks for the help JET. lol Bring you 3s board down to the dirty dirty really helps sir and you work really well while drunk!. lol

Jeff from Fla.: Thanks for running everything that had to do with GG and getting people organized to come to FR9 from the bottom. I know you only had like 5 hours sleep that whole weekend dog, but you hung in there like a G. Good luck with your move to cali and always rep the south shawty!

Fugee: for helping out with everything. Running MvC2, helping clean up and being a cool as nigga. You always got a place to chill when you visit the ATL.

Jordan: thanks for being the FR9 tech this year. You took ted’s job this year, but next time look for the button that cut’s on the machine before you unplug every wire on the head to head 3S machine. lol

Jarred, Kamau, Franco, Koop, TED, and LEIGH: Thanks for being security, cleaning up, and watching over the money with my wife for me.

LOS, Jeff from ATL: thanks for helping in random tournaments when I needed you to help phi or kyah.

ALLDAY and ANT: Thanks for recording the matches at FR9, so we can make the FR9 DVD. You guy’s got alot of great footage this weekend.

CHarles: For running NGBC while you was sick as a dog. I know you always got my back.

Malik and ICEAGE: Thanks for running the shit out of T5 and SC3. Always good to see ya’ll at FR.

Sam and Mel: for helping my wife take the money and handing out badges.

And to my lovely wife: for loving a dumbass like me and putting up with me during this whole weekend.

FR9 recruited staff:

Eric Lee “ShinShay” :(ran the 3s team tournament great!!)

Koop and the MD crew: (help with unloading the cabinet’s from the truck, being security, and just being cool as nigga’s to hang with!)

VDO and all of the playa’s from the “D”: Thanks for helping run CvS2. Letting us use your PS2 for cvs2. Do you have the brackets or does phi? lol

DSP: Thank’s for the LIVE updates sir. I don’t see why people hate on you sir. Your cool with me and remember the key work for FR9 is “FUCK THE HATERS!”

Also special thanks to “EVERYONE” that lend me there TV’s, PS2’s, DC’s, games, and Arcade Cabinet’s. I can’t run FR without you guy’s lending a helping hand with your equipment and supporting the southeast fighting game community.

Phi, Eli, Adam, Jordan and Ted: for letteing me use your cab’s and cps3/cps2 systems for the arcade tournaments.

Highlight’s:

Phi: whoopin fool’s in the MvC2 team tournament drunk as fuck!! Phi=best drunk player i’ve “EVA” seen. Also our .25 ST money match. I want my .25 back damnit!!! lol

Me: For not getting last in every game I played in since I’ve basically been forced to retire. Maybe i’ll start playing again if I ever get the time to play against humans.

Everyone that came to FR9: Meeting so many new faces and old FR vet’s made me almost shed a tear. I had a dream about this tournament 9 years ago when I started FR. The faces aren’t the same, but the feeling was the same as this was the “PEOPLE’S MAJOR”! Everyone telling me this was a great tournament, but it was great because all of you guy’s showed love to a nigga call larry that’s from the ATL. I really appreciate the support FR get’s every year. Every year it seems like FR get’s a little bit bigger and better. I may get the credit for running fr9, but the players that attend FR9 are what made this years event the bomb shit.

Justin Wong: winning 3 pimp cups and giving 2 of them away to his friends. I don’t know why people hate on him so much. The kid is good at everything and cool lil dude. I hope I didn’t hurt you and leigh when I tackled you and leigh in the hallway. (Can you say GOLDBERG?!?!?!) Fear the spear!!! lol

Jeron: we didn’t play against each other in shit this weekend. It was cool chillin with ya though. Get some sleep hommie.

My GA. Peeps:
Epsilon: Getting a tie for 7th in 3S singles. I think you showed alot of people that your not all talk on SRK. You have gotten alot better than I saw you play last year at FR9. Your dudley is trill.
50morecents: representin the ATL to the fullest in mvc2!!! I thought you retired in that game dog??? Good shit, because there was some killa’s in that tournament.
All of my ATL Tekken hommies: holding it down every year at FR. Ya’ll away keeps it trill and hold that shit for the ATL.

Clint: well it had to happen sometime dog. I know you was fresh out of the hospital 2 days before FR, but you still came to FR. You tried to defend the ATL the best you could, but crow is a great player. Congrats to crow for ending the 8 year streak, but that means you have to start a new streak next year. :wink:

NC crew: It was good seeing all of my peeps from NC again. Lu and P-soul getting 1st and 2nd in NGBC tournament. You told me that you was going to hold that shit down Lu and you did that sir. Why do I always have to play again Eric P. at FR? Good shit sir and remember I didn’t make the bracket’s this year. We will continue our saga in ST next year. Orochi is off the chain and always cool to chill and talk with. RekkaKen came out of retirement and showed at FR9. It was good seeing you there bro. I hope you can make it back next year.

SC: It’s always good to see you guy’s again. You guy’s are growing up right in front of my eye’s. I’m getting old. Thanks for your support of FR every year fella’s.

NE: Simon, Jamar, and David are some cool ass nikka’s and it’s always good to chill with ya’ll. Thanks for your support of FR9 and i’ll see ya’ll next year shawty.
P.S.-Next time jamar if you got to go. Go out with your OG character “necro”!!!

H-Town crew: Thanks for coming out to FR9 this year. All of you guy’s are mad coo peeps and are welcome in the ATL anytime. Hopefully you’ll be back for FRX

OHIO Crew: Good to see ya’ll again owning up in all kind’s of games. Thanks for supporting FR and i’ll see ya’ll next year.

Pobolo from KY: Did I spell that right? If I didn’t i’ll edit it when I get the correct spelling. Nice to put a face behind the srk name. That was a good match we had in 3S sir. We have to do it again at FRX. I don’t know if cvs2 can be on the same day as 3S since both games take FOREVA to completem, but i’ll see what I can do about that next year.

Taz: Good to see you bro. I know living in the middle of Ky has you down, but your skill hasn’t droped a lick. I’m not going to think about playing you in SF Anny. You was beastin on everyone with “champion M.Bison”. Too fucking good sir!

Fla. crew: Thanks for your support of fr every year. It was good seeing all of you guy’s again.
Damn you peter and your X-Rolento! $5 Money match next year on my cab “BET IT SON!!! LOL” Damn kid’s think their taking ova the world. lol
The south is going to miss your leadership “Jeff”. Every year you get Fl. organized and ready to attend FR. Good luck in cali and everything you do, but ain’t no way in THE HELL I would drive to cali from miami!!!

Low light’s:

The funk that was in the ballroom:
I appreciate everyone that attended FR9, but if you have a room at the hotel and if you smell youself:PLEASE GOTO YOUR ROOM AND WASH YOUR ASSS SHAWTY! For that reason only i’m going to look into getting a sponsership from the following companies:

AXE body spray
old spice
right gaurd
irish spring
dail
scoop
aquafresh
fast acting tanactin
jergen’s lotion
and secret!

Also there was too much drinking going on saturday in the tournament area. Some kids walked into the tournament area and I walked them out before their parents came into the room. When I went out of the ballroom and came back in it smelled like a bar in there. I could have gotten arrested if one of those kids would have pick up a drink laying around and gotten drunk. Next year keep the drink’s in the hotel rooms please. :wink:

People stealing shit: I know some people can’t act right, but why in the fuck would you steal koop’s grey pullover when it’s 80+ degree’s outside this weekend?!?!? If we find out who you are we will put a bullyfoot in that ass! Believe that shit shawty!

If I missed someone i’m sorry. My brain is fried from this weekend, but I can’t wait to do it again next year. FRX is going to be off the mothafuckinchainshawty!

Thanks for coming out to support the southeast tradition called "FINALROUND"9. Be easy everyone and GOTO ECC11

man, some of these SRK names crack me up when Kyah had to call people for thier matches at the tourney. I dont think some of these people considered what thier SRK screen name sounds like when someone is screaming them outloud.

“NINE THOUSAND NINE HUNDREDED AND NINTEY NINE HIT POINTS!!!”

“SOL BLACK GUY!!” :rofl:

that was too much.

larry, you did it again. great job. ill be back for FRX. lemme know what happens w/ that cab. you’re a life saver takin that off my hands. :slight_smile:

jay, you’re well on your way to world domination. thanks for regulating so I could smoke all day. :rofl: you’ve come so far, its great to see u beat down on these haters.

simon, thanks for letting june n I chill out in your room. u fucking koreans smoke like a broken stove. I dunno if I told you, but after we came down from smoking this one time, there were all these cheerleader girls or something getting on the elevator. When they got inside they said “OH MY GOD IT SMELLS LIKE WEED IN HERE!!” and i walked back and said “SO WHAT”. They were like “were u smokin in here!?” and I was like “nah…” and they said “well, we want to smoke!”. I told them to go to room 341 or whatever it was… so if any girls happened to swing by your room that night, it was all because of ME. hah.

was great seeing everyone else. not going to go down a list, too many pppl, man a lot of fucking heads were there. lots of ppl getting better at 3s. what a massive tourney for a game that is so old…

first off, you gotta thank the man himself. larry, the tournament was too good. props you to and team EMS for hosting FR for the community. you’re damn right i’ll be back for FRX :slight_smile:

leigh - its a fucking burger. but it’s aiight. ill change it just for your bitchass. and yea, haircut. i can’t even argue that one. am i the only one who calls you LAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY instead of LEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?

simon yoo - you took my money >_< that final round was too hot. props to you for showing up to this one, cuz i can’t seem to catch you at any others. hope to see you and your crew at ECC, and im looking for that runback! stop empty jump srk ;(

jamar - good shit on 4th. i never saw you during the actual tournament, so our match was a surprise. you really outplayed me when you picked necro though. great strategic move…i was too frustrated by both him, and a situation i had in the winners bracket. either way, come to ECCXI! bring cam with you guys :slight_smile:

justin - i failed you :frowning: it’s aiight! ECCXI! this time, i can pick yun :smiley: once again, you’ve proven that you’re #1 in the US. nothing more i gotta say.

jeron - elena pride! you do really well despite not even playing the game. bug justin to show you more elena/chun shit, and you’ll fuck people up left and right. you gotta admit, 3S is hot. ill let you slide with ST being your main…but you know you can’t deny the power :smiley: good shit repping NY, and i HOPE you’ll change your mind about ECC.

jet phi - my viet brother! my bad for not defending you from those 3S bullies in the tournament. you should pick the game up! it’s too hot! i’ll miss your management at ECC this year, and i hope DSP can handle the load. if not, ill be calling for your ass lol :smiley:

eric lee - we both need to go into the training room. hopefully this tournament shone some light on exactly what type of mentality and play we have to have. hate to not be able to see you at ECC…i won’t let you down :smiley:

koop - good shit to see GT crew in another state. good shit to you for helping run the shit. you need to pick up 3S man i swear! :smiley:

nokato - it’s literally been years since any of us have seen you. i’m really glad you were able to come out to this tournament. good luck to you in school, and hopefully we’ll see each other again at other tournaments :slight_smile: tell us when you come back to MD so we can get some games in.

zeroG - practice that ken more~ for when you just can’t seem to use urien because of the sticks…you need a backup plan. like my yun and ken :smiley: definitely great to see you again.

flashmetroid - your yun’s starting to look like trouble. there’s still a long way to go, but im sure you’ll get there real fast. just watch more vids. go get evo 2k5 3S!!!

epsilon - nice to finally have met you. been too long since #capcom ahahah – good shit with your dudley. your game’s pretty solid. if you up it a notch and play safer, you’re gonna be pimping my quarters =P don’t worry about the hotel matches. all in fun and games :slight_smile: try to make it to ECC!

june roh - good shit playing you again. the sticks didn’t really favor you and your unblockables this time around. :smiley: yea yea…i got away with murder. how’s ECC looking for you?

haunts - i can’t believe your ass didn’t wake up til 3pm for the team tournament. at least you still got to play. great job showing peeps how gay makoto can be! rawr!

jae purvis - it was definitely great to play you. you’ve improved a lot since those mindboggle tournaments in NC. it was very disheartening to see your match with jamar, cuz you both were missing shit left and right…but those short jab shorts…focus!!! either way, nice ‘meeting’ you again, and come to ECC! you’ll have a lotta fun im sure.

joey - it was nice to see you show up. team magic stick misses those mindboggle tournaments :frowning: dudley’s a hero! hope you train up even more, but i know you NC guys don’t travel north :stuck_out_tongue: see you at next year’s FR

jose - your chun’s improved a lot. all you gotta do is look up to justin and you’ll find out exactly how mean she is.

alex roski - great to see you again alex. although have you been slacking off? you were VERY on point at vtyme. i bet it was the sticks. everyone seemed to have problems with them. oh well, that’s how it goes though. your makoto’s still hot shit though. coming to ECC? its console :smiley:

isaac graham - good shit getting 2nd sir. like i said, look on that stick. you’re my hero <3 good shit with the comeback against kevin. MSP king can’t lose!

icege - way to play 3S you whore. jkjk <3 it was great to see you again. come up and convince johan to play again :smiley:

fubarduck - first off, i want to apologize to you. i was pretty rude after the miscommunication between me and kyah. i had asked him before our match if winners semis was 3 out of 5, and he said yes. regardless of tournament precedents, you can understand how i would be frustrated since i was specifically told otherwise. it put me in a different mindset and changed how i would’ve done things. but it’s ok. like i said, you were the best player there outside of justin. no hard feelings, and hope to see you again in future tournaments.

sugarland - i saw your picture log on here a while back, so i recognized your face. nice to have met you and texas crew.

alex ennis - why wouldn’t i remember your name? im not a jackass :slight_smile: either way, good shit with the makoto. don’t be afraid of makoto mirrors! you did really well against cajunstrike. hopefully we’ll bump into each other again in future tournaments. im looking at evo :slight_smile:

crow - i didn’t really talk to you at all, but just wanted to say good shit on getting 2nd in 3S and 1st in T5. gotta bring home the pride for TX huh? :slight_smile: hope to see you at ECC again this year.

rpd rookie - you were probably the highlight of the weekend. meeting a cool cat on XBL offline, shit was cool. sorry about the whole arcade situation, but like i said, just practice with sticks! :smiley: hope you had a blast on your first tournament, and see you on XBL :slight_smile:

jesus christ…did i forget anyone? if i did, my bad. im having enough trouble remembering as it is >_< good shit to everyone!

Props and such

People I met in person for the first time:

DSP: To be the king of hate, you’re a pretty cool cat :slight_smile: Good luck w/ ECC.

Koop: I actually snuck in and ate the cheetos…you’re off the hook. Any friend of Leigh’s is a friend of mine yo. You need to live in Atlanta dog, your ass kept me rolling the whole time lol.

fatherbrain: Cool to meet you dog, your ST match where you PUT JAE PURVIS (ShinRyuX) OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT was one of the highlights, no doubt. We’ll be in touch.

Jeff (Heidern98): Mad cool man, mad cool. I enjoyed listening to the GG shenanagins going on next to my station, even though I didn’t get to watch much. You worked your ass off, dude - we appreciate everything.

Phi: Awesome to finally meet you man, you run one hell of a bracket and you’re a cool cat. You also worked your ass off, and it is much appreciated. I’ll be up to get some Breaksteaks soon :slight_smile:

fugee and Lao Su: Wsup ya’ll, sorry I didn’t put up a challenge in Trilogy, that shit is too
fast for my tastes. Both of you guys were hella cool, thanks for letting me chill in the room
for a while too. We’ll get up some games over Kalliera or something.

umthrfkr: sorry we never got to the money matches - I’m glad I found out your name was Pat, b/c I felt like if I kept yelling “you mother fucker” everytime you had a match we were going to get kicked out of the hotel :slight_smile: Good to meet you dog.

Dataika: we didn’t get to talk much man, but you seem like a cool cat. Be sure and edit my interview video so Leigh doesn’t steal my thunder LOL.

Mr. Bunn: FUCK WHITEY!!! I’m out!

People I hadn’t seen in a while:

NC, ATL, AUG guys: Always a pleasure fellas. Thanks for continuing to keep the scene alive. And Sora - don’t ever drunken hug me again LOL.

Tad, Fraley, and the Columbia peeps: Tad, good shit in ST - Fraley good luck w/ the Air Force, you guys are welcome down here anytime.

Rick Fn’ Stalvey: we only talked at the beginning, wasn’t trying to lay blame about the DC
incident or anything. Good to see you guys come up - take care.

Taz: sorry I didn’t practice up for MKDA - haven’t played it in a while, but you got me
wanting to get into it again. Good to see you as always man.

Eugene: you look good, man - keep that pizza out of your pocket lol.

EMS ATL fam and staff: good to see you guys again, we need to get together more often. Thanks to everyone for your help with everything!

Jered: Mad pimpery - I’ve never seen anyone change clothes 5 times in the same day. And I didn’t steal that chick from you! I swear!

And of course, my brother from another mother, Mr. Ronin Chaos: Eat a dick, bitch. Sorry I didn’t crash at the pad, just too much going on and I needed some sleep. We’ll see you at my birthday bash.

Finally, to the few people that came up to me the entire time and said “Thanks, you did a good job” (Rekkaken, Clint, and a few others), I REALLY appreciate it. It is usually a thankless job, but it makes it worthwhile to know that someone appreciates the effort.

The new hotel staff was DOPE - we came through and trashed that motherfucker, ran them out of Mountain Dew in all the drink machines, liquored up the halls, and smoked out the entire 3rd floor and they were still as nice as they could be with good service, clean rooms, and everything we needed as we needed it. I’m writing Best Western Customer Service through the website (bestwestern.com) - please take the time to do the same.

Bad stuff -

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, next year (and it appears that there will be one, as smoothly as things went) I WILL have a megaphone and YOU WILL be DQ’d if you don’t show up for your matches. This year was the worst I have ever seen for people not being available. If you are going to participate in multiple tournaments, make sure you let someone know you are playing. If you are not, please stay close to the area! And wear deodorant!
Had a great time everyone, can’t wait for FRX!

“Napkin not for eating on! Use plate!”

Good Shit to all who placed, won and just had a fuckin’ good time!!!


#13

Shout out time!

First, of course, hella thanks to shinblanka, BobSmack, roninchaos, LiquiTed, Phi, ShadowG, Jordan (I flee and scurry with my one win!) and everybody else on the FR staff that made it possible (and convenient!). Last year’s Final Round had us all planning to come back to this one to try and come back for redemption. This year has us wanting to come back next year just because it’s too much fun.

Neidel, Eli, and Jay S - Oh noeeees, 3S beasts! Sorry I didn’t get to chit chat with ya’ll more. Congratz to Jay for doing so well! I’ll try to make it out that way sometime soon

Tallahasee crew - Sorry for wondering into ya’lls room like that on Saturday night. I was told “Tekken is going on next door!” How do you know? “I hear King1” Oh snap! GGs to ya’ll, and good shit to loganx2000 for powering through with Jack-5 on Sunday.

9999hp, Jais, and Antonio “X” - Was good meeting ya’ll. I didn’t get to get any games in with ya aside from the chit chat, but in my book that’s more than enough. Don’t forget though X, try to set-up money matches on the plasma while talking all kinds of junk only to walk away crying about the TV lag afterwards. That’s how it’s done! :lol:

Bum’s house - OMG HI! WE MIZZ J00S! Get off that WoW and into some CoV/CoH! Thanks for not bailing just because it’s double honour weekend (KEITH I’M LOOKING AT YOU, I’LL EAT YOUR FACE). Bum levelling up irl was too funy. I also saw April with her little PSP trying to look all innocent in the attempt to sucker some poor sap into a money match. Matt needs to find me some T5DR glitches, Lester, it was hella good to talk with ya brah. Like the Georgia peeps, I gotta head up ya’lls way again :slight_smile:

Augusta - GGs Don! GGs Walker (I’m a horrible friend, I know :()! Nam’s eyebrows are stroooong. Kiyo is an alcohol-running monster. Mossimo is a silly tipsy. Sora is still pretty, and he’s gonna be my bishy bait if I go to any anime conventions. Big thanks to ya’ll for partying with us on Saturday night in celebration of that man Mike’s 21st bday! Also ups to the cat that hung out with us and had dinner with us on Sunday night who’s name I NEVER heard. I’m a bad person. Also hi to the other guy who I never saw up until dinner on Sunday night. The one who got the same thing as Nam. MINGY! I only got to see Raph once :frowning:

MD Crew (including Isaac <3 Graham) - We were in room 323. I didn’t know you guys were down the hall, or I’d have wondered in. Eric Lee and Khang are too strong at 3S, and good shit Isaac on running down MvC2. I’ma be in the area most likely on Memorial Day since I gotta wedding to go to. Hope you’re liking Charlotte, Isaac. You’re only 3 hours from me nao. :smiley:

GG players - Jeff (Heidern), Florida is lucky to have you. Both times I’ve been around you, I’e wanted to start playing Guilty Gear again. Your love of the game is contagious as sin. I’ll come back next FR and actually stay in the tournament since I plan on actually playing again. Blake, I saw that video of you ranting about Holy Orders Sol. I wanted to play him, but I couldn’t even do basic Sol stuff. How could I join teh Holy Order!? You better have played him >_<! Mike (kombatfreak), you are a kind and gentle soul. Every round you were about to perfect me (which was all but one), you’d kindly accidentally walk forward so I could jab you. It was like you were telling me I was pretty during the rape. It made it a bit easier to take >.>

Savannah and Raleigh - WHERE WAS YOU AT!?!?!?!

Justin W - EESE! EESE! EESE! EESE! Too good. Birdie says what’s up btw and that he’ll probably call you sometime this week. Where was that man FlashG?

jio - My big brothah Josh! What do they know about that girl Ling? Solid man. Hella solid. Big props for plowing through the winners’ like that. You and lcm were tearing it up. Take me to that parlour you get some of your DR tricks from, I gots to get me some of those.

Travis - You are the (silver) devil. Forget about the frame advantage, the juggle damage, the oki, the tech traps, the wall set-ups, everything. Lee is still lower mid because Blazing Kick doesn’t crush jabs as well and 4,3,3 is overrated… muffled laughter Anna tech traps are dumb! Thanks for the DR drilling. I sharnigan’d some of it to bring back home! We have the ugliest Mishimas on the planet :frowning:

Guardian - GET IN JEW! Always a blast when you’re around. I need to get you in the car with bacon’s extra and Lei Mana so we can have the most random talk about Tekken and other shit in general. Somebody that actually appreciates the chaotic humour! I heard you were putting it down on the other guys that came from Charleston with Bryan like they stole something from you!

Mr. Gamble - Congratz on your money match, punk! Let me know when you’re going to ATL again so I can try to head out. Also, let me know if you’re going to go to ECCXI.I’m most likely going and can probably get you a place to stay.

jackie_tran - I saw you taking Anakin’s milk money. You bully. I shoulda Gene Spliced you.

Anakin - Tran is a bullyface. You should’ve worn the glasses, that would’ve destroyed his soul like it did mine. GGs!

wing_zero & Big Boi - Was nice hanging out with ya’ll. Good shit Rich for rocking it out in the tourney. You’ve come a long way from what I’ve heard. Stick with Marduk, Big Boi. He’s solid, despite horrendous match-ups.

Da_Wasian & frends - Good to finally meet ya’ll. Hope everything went well on the trip back. We’ll meet up again

Texas - Good shit on repping hard this year. Alex with the Ling shenanigans, and Crow with his t-shirt hood of doom. I might be out Texas’ way sometime in the next couple of months. I’ll definitely drop a line when I get there!

Clint - Your reign of terror has ended :(. 2nd place after just getting out of the hospital and still being sick? That’s Godlike. Hope you start to feel better man, you looked like you were about to just topple over at any minute all weekend. You’re the ironman of Tekken.

RTD - I saw you running SC3 you monster, you. We must run the hustle sometime. How are my kids doing?

ShadowG - I’m sorry for disappearing near the end of the Tekken brackets. My throat was starting to hurt and I didn’t have anything to eat until just before I got put out of the tourney. Thanks a ton for making sure everything ran so smoothly.

Bane - Good to see you again. You by far had the best match of the weekend against Crow. That Heihachi is a freight train. Get some DR going! You’ll love him. I’ll have to steal some A. King tech from you after you’ve gotten some more time under your belt.

SC cats - I talk to you assholes enough as it is! We got our own thread for this! Baaahahaha! I keed, I keed. Dez, Larry, Mike, ya’ll are too good. It was a blast getting to hang out again. Larry, Dez says you’re a strip club connosieur. We need you to stay next time to be our guide! Additional what’s up to Kevin and Jae

Charleston - I see you guys every week. You know how it is :stuck_out_tongue:

If I missed anybody, I apologize hella. There’sjust too many people to try and pull out from off the top of my head. Even cats like Big and Lil Jay who I just want to say sup to (SUP!). We’ll do this again next year

I was the guy in the black Jack Daniels hat all weekend that helped run T5 brackets with ShadowG on Sunday, just in case people aren’t going “WTF IS THIS!?”

#16

Cant wait till this shit is on DVD.

I hope the Team matches are on there too…cant fucking wait!!!


#17

Yo Franco, I think the funniest moment of the whole tournament was when you walked up to me and asked permission to regulate motherfuckers that weren’t giving up the TV’s :lol:

What happened w/ the DOA guys? One dude came in acting all salty cause we didn’t know what was going on. He was like “IT SAID ON YADDA YADDA YADDA THAT THERE WOULD BE A DOA4 TOURNAMENT AND I EXPECT IT TO HAPPEN.” Was one of the guys that needed to be booted off the TV’s?


#18

DOA4? That’s what happens when you let Jinmaster try to take charge of things…he posted on the DOA Central forums that there would be DOA at final round, and look what happened…GGPO, relationship with DOA community.

Just want to say it was lots of fun coming down to FR for the first time, not only was the tournament well run but I had a ridiculously good time with casual play at the hotel. Best Western was a top-notch choice and probably the best hotel I’ve stayed in yet for gaming tournaments.

My ridiculously close and epic ST match with Justin Wong will not be forgotten…I hope nobody thinks that because I lost to him that I’m going to give up, because I’m NOT. Justin vs. DSP first round at ECC, what??? Seriously, Justin has some kind of SF magic that nobody can shake, he’s good at every fucking game, but I’m not a quitter…I’m going to come back again and again to face him until I finally dethrone him, because I’m a true warrior and I’m not giving up because of one close loss. ECC, BET ON IT.

Besides that it was also great to meet Colin (one of Cole’s OG roomates) and see so many ST players from down south. You guys may not believe it, but that was the most I’ve played ST since last year at EVO, and the most challenge I’ve had…I don’t play games at all unless I’m at a tournament because there’s just nobody left in Connecticut who plays. For all those who got spanked up, I want to thank you, because you gave me a warm-up for ECC and the EVO tournaments.

I also really enjoyed MvC2 even though I came up a bit short (DAMN you Taz, playing so damn solid). All I needed was to squeak by 1-2 more people to make top 5, instead I got randomed out by some random FL player who I’ve never heard of…dammit you guys are all pretty solid, I see now what happens when you dont’ play a game for 2+ years seroiusly, everybody catches up! I want to give mad props to everyone though.

I hope everyone from Final Round can make it out to ECC this year, no matter what game you play, you will not be disappointed. MvC2 on 4 cabs with brand new 360 controls, ST on switch-stick cabs for the more OG players, and 5+ console stations of CvS2/3s on the PS2. PLUS delicious breaksteaks and some interesting side events (Guilty Gear Slash, DOA4, Alpha 3 and more). Final Round was a great tournament and it gave me lots of practice, so fools best not be sleeping on the King of Hate come Memorial Day weekend!

P.S. Yeah, I’m really NOT an asshole, people just get that impression because I tell it like it is, and some people with big heads just don’t like to hear the truth. The reason I actually started calling myself the King of Hate was because I was “the most Hated player in the game” after I took so many controversial stances on things in SF. But after I created the Top-Haters (anybody who remembers that gets a cookie) the title King of Hate just kind of stuck. It was great to meet so many new people for the first time, I’ll take care of you guys at ECC if you come, hope to see you soon!

Whatever you do, just keep feeding me tips for Vega before my matches. That shit was hot. :tup: :lol:


#20

What happend was Jinmaster was “SUPPOSE” to attend FR9 and run DOA4. I was doing it as a favor since I saw alot of people on TZ.com asking to play it at FR9. He told me that “him” and “TOM Brady” would bring 2 tv’s and 360’s down to FR9 if I allowed him to throw doa4. I was like ok and I was going to cancel it because he didn’t tell me if he was coming to FR9 with the TV’s and 360’s. 2 weeks before FR9 we talked on AIM and he told me that he was coming to FR9 so don’t worry about doa4 because he will handle the entire thing. Then he asked me to put it on the thread and on the FR9 website as an official tournament game.

AND THEN HE DIDN’T SHOW UP FOR FR9 on saturday or sunday.:confused: :confused: Now what does that say to me? I’ve notice over the past few month’s he has tried to start tournaments in other area’s and not just in Va. I know he’s trying to throw a tournament down in the ATL and it got me to thinking. Did he not come because he had to work OR did he try to fuck me by having me list a tournament on the website and be fucked because he didn’t show?

I don’t know which one it is but he has my AIM name and i’ve seen him get on and off AIM alot and he hasn’t said shit to me yet why he didn’t show. Yea he may have told someone else some shit and it got back to me after FR9, but he didn’t send me PM or an E-mail saying my bad yo or something to that effect. I would like to say i’m sorry to “ANYONE” that traveled to FR9 to play in a DOA4 tournament only. It just something shady about the whole thing IMO.
