SOS2’s SUMMER’S END Review
This tournament meant so much for me. All my efforts and hard work was meant for all the TRUE 3rdS massives in TOSF. From day one of the SF32I scene, I was determined to get everyone together to battle it out in tournaments. Back then it was
seriously hard, b/c the internet wasn’t mainstream at all. I had to do it in person. (I barely us it today) I’m so glad the TOSF is at the level it is today, with the help of everyone in the city. (ELITES and ADAVANCED players) This was by far the BEST FUCKING TOURNAMENT I have ever put together. T3 was such a crappy tournament which everyone was not in the mood to play 3rdS. Due to the NO SHOW from out of towners and the stress of the
low amount of entries for ever game, the organizer’s promises was not met and the owners of VA/VF were very dissapointed. The owners really worked their asses off to get everything setted up for T3.

We saw every element in SF today, from aggressive rush
down, turtling, safe, cautious play, “CRAZY” ass combos, insane red & normal parries and the best thng of all … the diesverse style!!! Even though there wasn’t as much of the big combos and insane parries as T2, the VIBE was off the hook. Everyone enjoyed fighting and watching the battles. The finals rounds
were some serious NAIL BITTERS for everyone. Right down to the last members of the team, the FINAL rounds showed a great deal of tension I have ever seen from the players and spectators. I was going mental from the stress watching these two teams going at it !!! Suspense and the finest !!! (Editor’s note: Jason’s team was sent to the losers by Steven’s team, and then they came back to battle it out by beating Steven’s team in the first set and bringing it to a 1-1 nail biting FINAL FINALS!!!)
Steven T. (Cool-Killer) - You earned the name once agian !!!Simply insane combos (Editor’s note: Makoto Reset AGAIN during the Round Robin matches!)
Kei L. - Pure SOLID gameplay today & the amount of damage you did was … freakin’ wicked man !!!
