Big thanks to KC for braving the drive down through the extremely harsh weather conditions on the highway. You guys were late, but your presence was most welcome.
Secondly, a personal apology from myself to John (Axiom) regarding what happened during the Tekken 6 brackets. You had every right to be angry pertaining to what happened during the tourney, and I 100% agree that it was wrong. I’m sorry for the confusion and brazen retardeness that occured from our side.
From my point of view, this is what happened.
Two players did not appear on the bracket, so I added them in as best as humanly possible to avoid conflict with the current results. I always stress for everyone to check the brackets to see if your name is on there, but sadly things can go wrong. That was partially my fault for not double checking. That said, as soon as something occurs I always want to speak to both players if they’re fine with the adjustments.
John spoke to Victor and Victor gave his word that he was fine with replaying the last round of the last set, since both parties played each other anyway (Petro accidentally okayed their match without my permission). Unfortunately Victor decided to change his mind after the fact and neglected to mention this detail to me, even though John went out of his way to talk to him and confirm it beforehand.
The silver lining here is that when all things were said and done, everyone cooled down afterwards and we were able to complete the tournament (albeit a little later than expected). I hope this doesn’t damper any future tournaments we hold, and iron out any wrinkles that might come down the road.
Apologies to KC for also not coming and hanging out after the tourney. I was pretty strapped for time and had to get ready for work right away. It’s always a pleasure to see you again Courtney, good luck to you in Seattle and keep in touch man! You are one hella cool dude and I’m sure KC is already going to miss you. Boxy, good shit for beating my ass in every game we played. You need to pick up Melty Blood so I can get revenge. Le, always a pleasure. Thanks for not trolling my ass with expresso jokes. ArkiveZero, keep at it in Melty man. Spread the gospel!
Big ups to Ricky for coming out despite what happened to you that day. Good shit, man.
Also big ups to Cuong for coming too; I could clearly see his hangover or whatever was left of it lol.
Thanks to Fuziun for helping run brackets and videos. You were supremely helpful.
Jude: Sorry you had to leave early and no one wanted to challenge you in HDR. Too beastly maybe? lol
Props to Ill Will for coming out and helping out with teams. Thanks for the wakeup call in Tekken warmups!
Big thanks to Ekie for the extra TV and helping me move the stuff to the venue. You’ll get 'em next time in T6 for sure man. WTF at 3rd place at SFIV though man, you don’t even have the game! lol
Thanks Andy for bein’ my teammate at T6, even though it wasn’t even decided by us (how the hell did we get stuck with the kid? dayamn)
Props to Ky for beasting me at our MBAA match. Was most hype. You too pro
More props to Duke, Tony, and Dominic for showing up. Old schoolers, unite!
Thank you as always to Petro for hosting this tournament and providing us with a venue. Without you, we wouldn’t be doing any tournaments at all in this city. Much respect. (Btw I have your PS3 USB cable)
SFCatGirlFanatic: I didn’t get to talk to you personally, but hopefully you had a lot of fun here. Come back anytime if you want some more games with us!
To anyone missed, GGPO!
Funniest thing at the tourney: Boxy trying desperately to pull off a ten string during the Tekken 3v3, only to get counter hitted ad nauseum by our 13 year old teammate lol. Did he just take a round!?
