GGs at GNG casuals. I feel that Cal (Zero_Ishtar) and Jason (Macrobeast) are improving! Just gotta get those combos down, punish harder and create a strong mix-up flowchart.

Thanks Des. It helps having the HYPEST MAXIMA IN THE STATE. #vaporcannanigans

Also GGs to Jason as well. I feel we're pretty similar in skill right now lol, it feels hype when we match up. That raiden be scary.

Yep and I actually think Alex and Sam has stepped up their game too.

For Cal and Jason, don't forget to use up your both HD and EX/Super meters. The EX/Super meters do build up kinda fast. Its a start for you two, I think just some more time with the game and the players and learning more on the game/characters, you two would get in the hang of the game.
Dat Raiden and Maxima!
I think it was good that you two played against each other on another set up to get more games and to get a feel from skill level.

Alex, you have a good amount of knowledge/experience with your characters, combo execution, and general knowledge on how we played. I think with the Crack Shoot added to your Terry is pretty good.
---IT PROVES TO SHOW---
After all the practicing and grinding and playing with us has improved your game play. I think its almost been a year you've been playing KOF XIII and I remember you said this was your first 2D-Fighter.

Sam, you have some Benny combo execution. Mature got me pretty good with spacing and used CD (Blow Back) as a anti-air and it was hitting me a good amount of times. There was some moments I saw with Kim missing some execution with the cr. LK, cr. LK, st. LK, f,f+LP, into QCB+K. Its alright thought, we all miss execution. Its happens to all of us (Even Me).
I think just some more games with us, you'll get the feel of it and used to it.

Good amount of players today, let keep that up!  ;)

Yeah I've been pretty excited to be able to put more time into the game lately and make it out to casuals on regular basis. Mad props to Desmond, Alex, Josh, Jacob, Tones, and Caleb who are always willing to explain the game and give tips to get better. Hell yeah to KoF for needing two set ups! Let's keep it up.

Cal be reminding me why I love that Maxima! ridic

It's going to be at a different venue and the nearest hotel is $67 bucks a night. Who is down to roll?

Yes I do. I had a great time last year, aside from the venue being way too small for the event. I just have to start saving up because I'm broke as fuck at the moment.

Would love to have guys come out to Chicago again. The new venue has a lot more room than nickel city, and the Chicago fgc usually gathers there every Friday. Also, FFVI is now taking pre-regs. I haven't tried it yet but I hear if you pre-reg you pay the discounted venue fee at the door. Something like that, I gotta look it up.

We will try to make it for sure. I'll talk to the other guys and see if we can all go.

Btw, I want to record some exclusive matches for the Dream Cancel youtube. These matches can be recorded by my Avermedia LGP in a hotel room or on a casual set-up before and after the tournament.

Sounds good. I'm down to play some matches that Saturday, Sunday, or whenever you guys arrive. I'm sure everybody else is down to play too.

Oh man super dope casuals again! 2K2UM for life. I didn't even get to play any +R, wish I had a clone to get in all the matches I wanted.

GGs to everybody at GnG today. Everybody seems to be improving, and having a KOF 13, Guilty Gear, and 02um setup all at once was a dream come true.

Yea, we need to run with that set-up more often. I think I played more 02UM than KOFXIII too. GGs everyone. MAD FUN!

I seriously picked the worst day not to show up to casuals, didn't I? :P

I'm also saying we should run some 98 up there sometime. Jussayin.

Anyone going to casuals tomorrow? There might not be casuals this Friday or next week probably post Youmacon.

Had to work late today so no casuals for me. Hope that if they happened they were flipping awesome again! I'll be there next week if they're going down.
