I was ROFL watching that vid since they never caught on that it was Alex playing Gouken. Smart counter pick by Alex though. I have no experience against Gouken and it showed! :stuck_out_tongue:

Good Shit Valle and the rest of the level up crew. Tournament ran smoothly and the venue was on point.


#16

No, I was definitely a big supporter of theirs before and after Triple Threat, I even helped them set it up and take it down. I just wasn’t aware that they were still around, glad to hear they are though.


#17

Good stuff everyone thanks wish I would have done better , not that losing to bryant and choi are bad :slight_smile: but still!!! anyway for reals like i said earlier excellent tourney great venue very fun etc.

Hope to support this type of event again thanks everyone especially nor cal without people like champ I would have 1/2 as much fun as there would be no one to talk shit to :slight_smile: and yes I know I’m free lol

Thanks to everyone that was involved, had a great time. Beer + SF = instant win in my book. Also thanks to everyone being hospitable to us AZ folk and listening to our random shit talk while Juice was on stage =D! Just like Sabre said, we will be back for sure and we will be even stronger!
