since i only entered cvs2 singles because i had a graduation party to make that night (4 hours back home that is), i’ll write some more on that.
CVS2- 24 Entrants
1st- Daniel Cayse “popoblo” (KY), mainly A-blanka/sakura/r2 bison, with some A-eagle also (and some losing C-groove teams)
2nd- Julian Custard (MI), some combination of C-vega/yamazaki/geese/bison/sagat
3rd- Juan “VDO” (MI), some combination of P-raiden/zangief/joe/kyo/haohmaru
4th- Corey (MI), some combination of K-kim/chun li/sagat/yamazaki
5th- Massu (MI), P-joe/yamazaki/r2 iori (i think)
7th- Bhaskar “cheese_master” (MI), C-ken/rolento/r2 sagat
7th- Chris Rose “SSJGogeta” (OH), A-cammy/sakura/r2 blanka
i’m guessing chris and bhaskar tied for 7th, but i’m not really sure.
-I won the winners finals 3-0 against julian
-Julian eliminated VDO in the losers finals 3-1 or 3-2 (i forget)
-After going down 3-1 in the grand finals, i come back to win 3 straight with A-blanka/sakura/r2 bison to win the tourney, 4-3
i had a really good time at the tourney, and it sucks i couldn’t stay longer but i promised my friend i’d be there at 8 for his party(even though i got there at 10:30, oops) and i would’ve gotten owned in mvc2 and 3S. it was really nice to finally meet obot64, and to see a whole bunch of old friends, including fugi, david (ghettoontherise), brent, jason (zeidust), bhaskar, juan (VDO), julian, TAZ (!), eugene, moses, corey, ryan (infantry), chris rose, clayton (finalshowdown), mycah, and many many others.
sorry to mycah for not giving you that $10, but i honestly just don’t know if i’ll be to another tourney considering i’m hanging up fighting games after evo. i might pop up at a tourney here or there, but it’s not very likely.
big thanks to fugi for giving me a place to stay friday night in columbus (thus making my driving on saturday a whole lot easier) AND running cvs2 with mycah. you knew i had to leave early, so you did your best to get cvs2 done quickly, and i appreciate that.
sucks i couldn’t stay around and play more casual in cvs2 with VDO, julian, massu, bhaskar, corey, and the other MI guys.
PS- it’ll be a crime if my set against VDO or the finals with julian aren’t posted up somewhere. obot and the other guy with the camera, HOOK IT UP.
EDIT- taz is a beast in mvc2, i’m not surprised that he got 1st, and hopefully he used the “real” MSP- mag/SENT/psylocke:D
