Well for all 15 Marvel players who actually care to read this, I’ve decided on how the Marvel team will be decided. Some people may not agree with the people chosen, but I’ve received input and paired with my own beliefs have come up with this list.
For the first spot I want both Genghis and Junior. However, only one person can get the spot, so I request that these two play it out, 3 out of 5. Winner automatically gets the first spot.
As for the second spot, I’ve decided to have a 8 man invitional for the spot.
The loser between Genghis and Junior will end up in this 8 man round robin tourney.
The players are:
Genghis or Junior: I’ve been a fan of this fools play style for a while. Very solid. Has lots of experience at high levels and has also travelled a bit. Junior is one of SoCal’s best kept secrets. This guy is constantly improving and is very hard to beat. He’s also placed well over the last year in most tourneys.
Julius Jackson: This guy is still sick. I’m confident that at high levels his knowledge of matchups paired with his ability to put any and everything in the infinite will definitely throw off all out of towners if he makes it onto the team.
Mike Ross: After his lackluster performance at MWC I shouldn’t be giving him this chance. But he’s been doing alright and if anything, that terrible, terrible finish should have just made him more hungrier. Practice Mike, practice.
Ace: This guy did relatively well at MWC. He’s beat me down in like 4 tournaments already. Constantly improving. This guy has something interestingly new everytime I see him play. He’ll be hard for out of towners to fight.
Amir: This guy has some of the sickest combos I’ve ever seen. He does pretty well in most tourneys and would do so much better if he would just (*Hint) finish a combo.
Mag: Was on the 5 on 5 team last year. Did really well. Hasn’t been playing in too many tourneys this year, but that doesn’t mean the guy still isn’t on his game.
Last two spots: I’ll reserve judgement for these spots to a later day. There are a lot of fools out there who are MIA, i.e. Shady, Clock, David L, SiN. If these guys kick it up then maybe I’ll add them. If Deus, Ytwojay, and others keep improving, then I’ll pick one of them.
As for the tourney to decide who wins. It’ll be an 8 man round robin tourney held somewhere with consoles. Maybe at Pomona on that registration Thursday if possible since all of Cali has to be there. Anyhow, I would like this to take place on console since evo’s on console.
Also if each of the invited would bring some kind of song that we could possibly use for intro music, that would be cool. Can’t think of any songs right now.
If one of the invited aren’t present for the tourney, then I’ll assume they could care less about the spot, and it’ll become a 7 man round robin or less.
I’ll probably post here again later with the date and time and all that shit.
