The speed was set on default (speed 3). Which is what evo is using. So the speed setting is the “real” speed. It was posted in advance the speed setting and that we were using Japanese sticks. Yeah Josh and Som are really good, and would have played better on U.S. sticks.
I understand you are upset, but you should realize that you are insulting a whole community of players here. Why not post the IRC log so that way you can deal with just the people you feel talked shit about you?
