Hey guys I just got back from Vegas and wanted to drop a quick message.
Just wanted to say was good to meet all the Akuma players in person. Got to finally put some faces to the names. I met ShinAkuma204, Toxy, Tokido, Infiltration, and Divino. I also watch Kineda’s match but never introduced myself to him. I was busy watching a friend who made it out of pools and also Bokkin’s match.
I did get some games in against Infiltration and Toxy. Unfortunately I only got one set in against Toxy and we were planning on getting another set in, but our schedules just never matched. Still that set was awesome and I barely won it in the last round of the third match. Sometime Toxy and I will have to run it back. He is a really nice guy in person too. Much respect to him.
Against Infiltration I took a round against him, but in the end he came out on top. He didn’t let any whiff go unpunished.
As for how Evo went I can say I was disappointed with my play this year. I honestly felt like I was not achieving my potential especially considering I was making mistakes I don’t usually make. Part of that was my PS3 inexperience and the other half was I think my defense was not ready for how brutal my pool was. Someone did tell me I scared Marn into picking Viper because he saw my matches against Yun, but I don’t know if that is true or not. Still in the end it is no one’s fault but my own and I know how to prep for next year.
I did love the casuals though. I sat down at the set up and held it down for 3 hours on both Saturday and Sunday. I had a 64 game win streak before Infiltration sat down. Overall Evo was a blast. So much to do and see.
