MvC2 didn’t get enough people, and nobody showed up for any other games, so we just ran a little 12 man CvS2 tournament. Still more than I expected though.
1st: Ricky Ortiz - K- Sagat/Cammy/Blanka2
2nd: John Choi - C- Ken/Cammy/Guile/Ryu/Sagat2
3rd: Oliver “Tricky T” Tavas - C- Ken/Cammy/Sagat2
4th: Eric Leezy - K - Kim/Morrigan/Cammy2, C-Ryu/Ken/Kim2
Pretty fun tourney. A handful of dudes from out of town (I think) showed up, but they left before I got a chance to talk with them. Seemed like nice enough guys though. Me and Kim both tied for 5th like the top players we are.
-First game of winner’s finals, Choi’s ratio 1 C-Ken beats Ricky’s whole team in like 40 seconds. Pure beasting. I think he guard broke AND dizzied every character Ricky had. Level 2’s were landed like every 10 seconds, and at the end of the match Ken is still at 80%. Nobody got it on tape though.
-Leezy’s R2 C-Kim vs Oliver’s R2 C-Sagat. Everybody is joking around like “OH SHIT DON’T LET KIM HIT YOU”, then like 2 seconds later Leezy lands the Kim infinite and takes the second game. Nobody got that on tape either.
-Random game freezing glitch happened in tourney. Again.
-Grand finals, last game of the first set, Ricky’s K-Sagat beats up Choi’s first 2 characters real quick, then takes a big chunk off of Sagat too before dying. Choi’s Sagat kills Cammy in like 10 seconds, then gets Blanka all the way down to 5%. Choi’s Sagat has 0%. Both are all the way across the screen from each other, Ricky’s raged, and Choi is throwing HELLA FIREBALLS. Ricky takes a couple fireballs and blocks a few to get all the way down to 0%, then finally gets within striking range of Choi. Choi blocks Blanka low short and alpha counters (to stall and for the mix up on wake up)… but Ricky blocks the alpha counter and punishes to take the first set. Ricky eventually wins the second set and wins the tourney.
