Can somebody list the players who played on the CvS2 team tourney for me? I’m watching “SD - Texas Showdown 5 Part 4.wmv”. There’s some awesome guy running Ratio 4 A-Blanka and juicing people like a jackass all over the place. Am I guessing wrong, or did he beat Eddie Lee? I ask because there isn’t anybody else I know who plays Mai, R2 Vega.
C-Akuma, Guile, white shorts Sagat player is very, very good. Is that Hsien? I strongly feel he would of won if he only didn’t get impatient with the Sagat low tigers against Hibiki in the end. Anti-airing with the High Tiger supers looked like a mistake as well. He really could of used that meter versus the Hibiki low jumps. Yeah, Hibiki low jump MP is annoying as hell. Sagat was dealing with them the best he could though. I don’t think OTK does this, but always need to look for random qcf+MP or qcf+HP at the half screen footsies range so you can roll through when you have C-Sagat. It makes the low jump difficult to guard against. Being able to pull off that anti-low jump DP near the end made a great difference in getting OTK to stop spamming that garbage. Anyway, yeah. Good game. I wish the outcome was different, but C-Choi team player did the best he could against a tough counter match. He played a lot more patient that I probably could of played thats for sure.
-Probably the most obvious thing Akuma will do to you when you are cornered is to teleport behind you for the super quick launcher. OTK counter this brilliantly by knowing exactly what Akuma was thinking, waiting for Akuma to do it, and then countering with Kyo low shorts into a super combo. Excellent. I didn’t know that Akuma was vulnerable like that actually. I’m always blocking when I have a feeling Akuma will try to teleport behind me. I learned something new and am going combo every time I know Akuma wants to teleport instead.
Against teleport demon/dp, I’m not so sure. But I know there’s no invincibilty on those hurricane kicks and regular Akuma’s teleport has recovery as well. I don’t care if I get beaten every now and then, I’m attempting a low short combo every time instead of blocking now.
Brian Tyson? Yeah, the Texas Akumas and Sagats are beastly. Never underestimate them even when they’re playing a seemingly weak character like the C-groove version of Akuma.
-Wow, OTK did a full damage Shine Knuckle off the trap against a Sakura dive kick. That either takes lightning fast reflexes or a whole lot of anticipation. Either way, I was impressed.
-Why on earth was C-Morrigan being taped? No offense to whoever was taping (because I wouldn’t have so many other great vids if you didn’t tape), but this was fast forward material. :bluu:
-Actually, nevermind what I said negatively about the C-Morrigan player. He almost BEATS OTK for his first two characters in the pools. That would of been absolutely hilarious.
