Had some fun yesterday.
In the morning, played about 20+games online against a DJ player with Shaheen, did not win one match. He was good.
I had lunch and played with an OG tekken player and friend at my place yesterday for basically the whole afternoon, took a two hour break to just talk tekken, played some more. Then had dinner.
We played first to 5 sets…basically to keep it “intentional” and not just mindless play.
first game, I go up 3-0 with asuka against Jack 7, one of his mains, he runs it back 4 straight, I switch to Hwoarang, close match and lost.
He recently won a tournament at the soft opening of super arcade and took out Jackie Tran in the process.
Then he was pretty smart in taking advantage of hte session and asked me to teach him Hwoarang…as I’m one of the few hwoarang players in this area. So I taught him combos and basics and he wanted to play a first five set with his hwoarang and I was like ok… didn’t really take it too seriously cause he clearly was new to the character…to my surprise, it was very challenging and he was picking up real quick. I still won the set with DJ, who is Hwoarang’s worst matchup.
Then I asked him, “let’s do a FT5, but the other way” My Hwoarang vs your DJ.
Here’s the result. I put up a fight…fought with everything I had…did not go well though lol.
still some close matches.
This is the closest I got to winning one match.
