I was bent on competing, but because of something that happened so abruptly with Hellion, I couldn’t go. My plans were ultimately ruined, and I couldn’t help but avoid contact with my folks and throw shit everywhere. I just needed that break from my surroundings in this boring and empty year, not to mention a new car to drive to college with. Reading about how fun Evo was on these boards just makes it even more depressing.
I’m slowly getting over this now after hearing of Dr.B’s match with Daigo, but what I’m still aching to know is what characters and grooves were picked besides, of course, the top ones. So whoever went to the CvS2 tourney, if you know of any interesting matches, and I’m sure there were a lot, please post 'em here. Characters, grooves, player results, what new strats you saw, helpful commentary from top players,… everything. And most of all, voice out what impact you think this has had on the tiers, if any.
All I definitely know for one is that S-Groove should be viewed with hella more respect now, from players in both the US and Japan.
