Alright, So Cal held up pretty weak at Evo this year. As far as I remember, none of us even took top 8 in CvS2, and this is OUR home turf.
The problem, as I see it, is lack of practice. I can’t really think of many places for good CvS2 these days. The little time we do get to play is only at the scattered tournaments, which means we get our ass handed to us when it comes down to playing other regions.
I have no doubt we have some of the best skill in the world, but I also know for a fact we are just so damn lazy about it.
So Cal is like the Lakers; we know we’ve got the skill, but how the fuck do we lose in the finals?
So from now on, I saw we stop underestimating everyone else, and take our game to the next level. We need to start organizing practice sessions, weekly get togethers or tournaments, anything to get more practice in. I don’t care if its on home sticks or at an Arcade, we need to start practicing more.
So anybody else in So Cal who is interested in getting better at CvS2, put your input or ideas here. And let’s try to at least start some regular get togethers.
I say we try to throw 1 major tournament a month, at different locations each time. Family Fun, Regency, Powerstation, Golden Token, any any other place with decent CvS2. Then, every couple of months, hold invitationals based on those tournaments results. Putting together the videos from all these tournaments, and studying them, we should be able to kick our game up a notch or two.
