Title: SoCal KoF
Post by: davidkong07 on July 31, 2010, 01:52:31 AM
Southern California!


Since Arcade Infinity in Rowland Heights seems to be the only place in the country where anyone can play KoFXIII right now, I figured it'd be valuable to have a thread here focused on it. There is an AI thread and a SoCal SNK thread on SRK, but it's probably more appropriate to talk about gatherings and whatnot here, rather than on a Street Fighter centric website like SRK.

If you are in SoCal and wanna play KoF, introduce yourself! I know there's a bunch of people who go to AI for KoFXIII on a regular basis, and it'd be cool if everyone started getting to know each other!

Last time I checked it only took quarters and not tokens :[ don't know if it's still like that though!

No wonder it wasn't taking any of my tokens. Good thing Ken was there to fix it.

We all should start sharing characters when there are long lines! =) Although it gets confusion who's turn it is when everyone does it hahah. I'll be at AI tonight

It would get confusing :3 I guess it would turn into a real 3v3 if you have 2 other friends, haha. How many people have been going on Fridays? I went on Thursday around 7, not that many people there :> Not that I stayed very long, anyway.
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: 4leaf on August 07, 2010, 11:49:06 PM
There was a long line in XIII so I ended up playing XI the whole time. Maybe I should just wait in line for XIII. XI eats up tokens fast.

Need to edit the instruction on how to team edit on the XIII cab. It said "press start and any button". It should also mention something about practice mode being the only option outside of vs. for team edit but "team edit/practice mode" is fine.

I don't go there for long on weekdays, usually two hours tops. Saw AntiK Dash there and we had some good games then Mr Kof showed up and we recorded some of his Robert in training mode. Haven't seen you, Bao or Brian there for a couple of days.

Ahh, Bao and I were there on Monday from 6PM-Midnight. Usually the three of us head there on Thursdays from 6-7 to midnight :3 Lately I've been trying to do mondays/thursdays, but I'm probably going to cut back to once a week again since it costs too much money to play @_@
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: Kane317 on August 11, 2010, 12:42:05 PM
You should do the share the character method, that way you get much more play time in for the same cost.  When the line gets to 9+, I'll share a character with Jon, RJ, Reynald, Duc or whoever and when it's my turn I'll return the favor.

Don't hesitate to ask us, we'll share a character with you.  Exposure is the only way to get better.  EDIT: Oops, missed that Ash mentioned character sharing in page one.

Going to head over for a few today.

Ah that sucks.  Surely, there's at least one KOF player in the area.  I know people come from East LA (which isn't Westwood, but that's a start).  Network like crazy, just get with a bunch of people and get them to like Chinese/Korean food and they should just head there all the time.

Yuhang Ng.  There's it out in the universe now, we're going to exchange Real IDs as well...(bad SC2 joke).

UPDATE: Tentatively it's set for a Ranbat, but if the the show up is too high, we might just do a mini-tourney with one round elimination out of respect for Scott's time (Direct Feed).   Lol, there will be commentaries so don't hesitate to help contribute otherwise Oscar and I will be stuck hearing each other for hours.

I vote that we need a feminine's touch so naturally RJ Steph needs to help out =).
Title: Re: SoCal KoF

Just join anyways, we're not likely going to have an entrance fee for the tourney (if there is one), and ranbats are free.  It'll be fun.  OT: It just dawned on me how this thread really is AI KOF vs SoCal but I digress...

Well besides from that.  Oops, I guess I should make that clear but I thought it was already.  I suppose if it's a paid tourney (unlikely) then it'll be set on free play.  The problem with a paid tourney is that it deters the casual gamers from trying it out (but I suppose at the same time it won't attract any out-of-town competitive gamers either).

So wrong, yet so right.  I always ended up regretting saving my gauges and cancels.  It makes it even worse when I'm sharing a character and I feel like I should pass on something at least (not just the opponent that I should have killed, but didn't :/ )

I'll be swinging by AI today after class, say around 3:00pm-ish, finally getting a chance to get a crack at the game; something that's been lover over due. If anyone's there around the same, I'll be the guy with the blue dickies shirt and black hat.

Was pretty fun and refreshing to being absolutely FREE to a new scene of competition. I'll be showing up there early this Friday to really lock in a good training session if I can get some time alone just for five minutes. Hella not easy trying to re-learn Vice after not playing this series at all since 2003.

Till then, Friday for sure, maybe a random stop at AI during the week.

Aww, I guess I missed you by 20 mins, I know The Answer saw you.  Did you come with a group of people from Ventura?
If you happen to come let us know, and especially if it's a regular, we don't mind if you go into training mode, just let us know so we won't challenge etc.

@Kane: I can't speak for Brian, but I totally had a renewed love for BlazBlue, so I sit back there to play/watch. I still play XIII, just not until way late into the night. Well, that and we're too busy playing XI, lol.
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: Clutch on August 24, 2010, 04:17:25 PM
I took off around a little bit before 5:30, which was a little earlier than I wanted, but I did roll in with one friend.  No where near Ventura, unfortunately, probably was a different / person group you confused me with?

It's not a problem that needs me to be in training mode for too long, just you know, familiarizing myself again with low A low B strings again, heh.  I plan on going to AI for sure Friday from opening time to about early evening. It's safe to say I got an itch for the game again, since the last time I was like this for KOF was about when 2003 was released.

It'll take some time, but I'll be playing this game almost exclusively at AI a few times a week.

It's safe to say I got an itch for the game again, since the last time I was like this for KOF was about when 2003 was released.
It'll take some time, but I'll be playing this game almost exclusively at AI a few times a week.

Oh we KNOW that itch :)  You'll fit right in :)

There's also another bonus, and that's that I played with a few of the guys holding down the fort with KOF XIII at AI, back when there was a group on snk-capcom.com doing the Garou / SNK casuals waaaaay back when. Granted I only showed my face a few times, but never the less.

And my plan is to head out to AI Friday to get there when it opens, so I can scratch the hell out of my itch. :]

That's probably Oscar (The Answer), it opens 1:00pm (but realistically 1:30pm) on Friday.  I'll try to make it out there.  About, not playing since 2003 (and this really goes out to Brian and Steph too), KOF is like riding a bike, you never quite forget it and once you get back into it, it all comes back.  

On another note, 4leaf occasionally screws up his timing coz he keeps playing XI and I keep asking him, what do you expect?  You spend so much time on XI, you can't expect to get good at XIII if you have one foot in yesterday-land ( I know XI can be fun, I'm just saying ).  I probably love XII as much as you guys like XI, but I know what's going to happen if I don't play the current one.  /rant off. =) (Only coz I care about the scene and I don't expect it to grow magically without everyone's help).

Oh, most definitely agreed with the bike comparison. There was one huge hurdle for me, and that was uh. Going from the 
 ;a  ;c
 ;b  ;d

format because I was playing Super SF4 for so long, you'd figure that'd be the better way to go with, right?  Apparently not, I was playing better when I switched to the classic Arc set up. Apparently my hand never forgot that set up for an SNK game, lawl.

I'm actually pretty excited for the game, just need to really commit to using the old Brutal Girl more, since I'm basically going 2 v 3 while learning the ropes. Looking forward to the play time on Friday.

Man I only played capcom games before this , learning the SNK layout was a bitch for me lol,  so when they put the extra buttons in it was a godsend the learning curve went from godzilla size to something slightly smaller lol, I think I'm the I'm the only one that I have seen use It,

but anyhow I'll also be there when the door cracks open on friday see you there dude

yo i totally use the square. hahah i remember the first day i played, and i thought i'd try out the arc because i play blazblue, and was thinking "oh this should be the same thing" and i totally could not figure out which buttons were punches and which ones were kicks. hahah the main thing that sucks for me is that throws in capcom games are rolls in kof, so if you ever see me roll right next to you, it's probably because i was trying to throw you hahahahha

Good to know you haven't...the Q word that must not be mentioned.

On related news, I saw one of the Chinese guys that I thought did, but he recently picked it back up and got quite good.  He said, he spent one day learning the game (and he's up to speed now).  Keep playing!

I haven't done the big Q word for XIII, I just got really (re)hyped for BlazBlue. I have a long way to go in both BB and KOF, so no Q words are allowed lol

Also, I really would like to stop sucking at kof sometime, so I need to keep playing, lol.

Like I said, you're more than welcome to share one of my characters so you can get in more game time.  All we care about is moving the scene forward.

If you haven't already, watch the XIII vids, including the Japanese ones, they help me with a lot ideas/improvement.  

I'll also add that if you ever see Ash (Duc) around, ask him to help you out as well.  He's one of the best teachers I know in any game (a good player vs a good teacher are not necessarily the same), very level-headed, patient, and good at analyzing things.
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: the_judge on August 27, 2010, 08:04:06 AM
Good to know you have a good Ash teacher. I will most likely be pestering him with questions if I ever meet him.
I'm pretty sure AI has a designated Ralf player? Who would that be?

Quick note. In the case I make AI. I WILL pester you if you are any kind of good with King/Ralf/Ash, and possibly Leona (can't think of other chars at the moment).
Otherwise, still having difficulty trying to get someone in my crew to randomly go to AI just so I can play XIII.

Right now Pizzero is the only Ralf player.  Reynald used him in XII a lot, and he's really good at picking up a character (I'm real slow, take my time, and try try try until I get one thing right--which is why you see me doing stupid crap all the time).  

As for the characters I don't know, I know a lot of technical knowledge (read about them), but don't have much experience with them.

I didn't know you were within driving distance to AI, where are you from?

Aw man, that was completely worth it, even if I had to cut my time short and right when Kane just came in. For what it was worth, that was a fun one game we played. Freakin' Chin man, annoying. LOL.

Got what I was hoping for and that was good time alone with the machine to work on execution and controls, even managed to knock out a couple of guys back and forth in a few versus games, so I'm content to say that I'm comfortable with the game. All that's left now is just time to work in more execution and combos until it's all second nature.

PS, working in Vice's shoulder to arm whip combo loop will be hella, hella fun.

Will try to be there tomorrow, if not during next week. See ya fellas.

And others from Mexico that can cross.

This way you guys don't need a passport and I can finally quench the need for vengeance that people like Alexis, Kane9999 want vs. John lol.

I gotta give my boss a budget though of what it is going to cost so I dunno let's do it like this, the winner of this KOF13 tournament October 17th gets a trip to El Paso in December paid on the house what about that?

Ciberfantico yes there will be a live stream more than likely.

Yo RJ, Reynald, John, yo guys I need you all to seriously do some homework for me. My Boss has given me the green light for a tournament in El Paso in December to be like the one in October last year, and I would like to recreate it again with you guys attendance and bringing more from Mexico such as:

- Ivan the #1 in 2002 UM in Northern Mexico
- Esteban

And others from Mexico that can cross.

I would suggest Reynald going down to El paso to play 2k2um and show everyone his one move kasumi!
Rj still has the skills for xi.
As for me, i'm going to stay here for now.

But I assure you John that won't be enough, they are demanding your presence lol.  What if I can get the them a bus trip to LA? What about that and we call it Nouveau Defi Epilogue 2010 in Los Angeles?

If we go this route I'd be taking Kane9999, Alexis, Fory, possible Zeus/Ismael (Passport issues) OR ESTEBAN and Ivan to Los Angeles...what about this?

Issue here is I am going to need some serious help finding a place to house this and help setting it up because I know nothing of LA, so help guys!!!

Oscar I will be calling you soon...

I got the title: Nouveau Defi Epilogue 2010: The Revenge of Northern Mexico In Los Angeles, California, like the weekend before Christmas.. and I can petition Scott to possibly stream the vids so that I can upload vids of that quality to my youtube account..and because I know of how much hard work that is, to make it worth Scott's while, I will pay him for his assistance..

Can you John/you guys in Cali/AI turn THAT DOWN?

Post by: Dark Geese on September 24, 2010, 01:40:08 AM
I'll call it Revenge of Northern Mexico just to spice things up lol, obviously if they dont get their revenge it's on them lol.

Well everyone Kane9999, Ivan, and Fory right now have their visas and are confirmed for this monster SoCal tournament, there are a lot of things going in right now that we need to confirm the date right now because there are a lot of tournaments, basically right now we have the option of the beginning of February (6-7) because of the fact that:

1. Some have to work the beginning of December
2. SoCal Regionals
3. Mexicans going to Torreon for KOF tournament week of the 17th
4. Obviously Christmas weekend isn't an option
5. So maybe the first weekend of the New Year or something..a perfect New Years tournament..
6. West Coast Warzone 3 in January

Good games tonight. Real healthy turnout, I think it was nine players total.

We should get some recordings in as I feel that everyone improved while I was gone for a week. Reynald picking up Vice and Shen is scary IMO. After playing two more new mature players (Romance and John) I miss Raiden lol.

I revised my hate-to-play against list in no particular order: K', Kula, Liz and Mature (Kyo fell off).

This upcoming tourney which I think we agreed to move to the week after the 17th (23rd ish) but we have yet to decide which weekend day it is-- is going to get real interesting.

GG's 2 all! Mature is pretty gay..but her infinite takes "some" kind of skill.
I miss playing Andy!
I do not miss RAIDENS drop kicks!..what i do miss is Oscars reaction when i hover over raiden on the select your character screen! hahahhahaha

Can't wait for the upcoming tournament to prove Terry as a viable character.

I'm also glad everyone is improving and trying out new HD combos! LEVELING up is important. In case i do not make it to the upcoming tournament...it's either blame work or putting in work. By default, Reynald may win with cheap ass yuri if he can survive the k's and kulas =)

Reynald knows i have the kryptonite to stop him....what he doesn't know is..i just beat him with just a rock in my pocket! YEE YEE!

Rant on:

GG's 2 all! Mature is pretty gay..but her infinite takes "some" kind of skill.

Going off the top of my head, I think it is definitely one of the easier ones, and takes very minimal amount of skill--for a KOF infinite. Any skill that is needed is negated by the fact that you can set it up with any of her three non-projectile specials (qcb+P, qcb+K, dp+P), hehe I'm bitter that I got hit by the full infinite+stun last night when I took Mature done to a 5% health and was up by 70% and then BAM!  Hah.

Angel's one was harder, Vanessa's one was harder, the Kim air step thing was harder, Joe's new infinite is harder, the '97 Yamazaki one was harder (way harder), Extra mode Kyo was harder, the Kyo '95 qcf+K one was easier but once again, Mature has more setups for it (and I'm not including the Ex versions of her specials which of course has invincibility and super good recovery--heck, Arcadia dedicated an entire section to teach how to counter Mature's Ex DP+P against every character lol).  I'm not counting any 100% combos coz they are too many.

I just remembered Oscar uses Mature as well *facepalm* (*runs off and prays for the Raidens to return*)--at least RJ has the decency and dropped Mature, speaking of which.  Props to RJ going 2 random+Shen last night and pulling off wins.  Respect, now go get some pineapple juice...hahahahahah

Hehe.

Rant off.

Abe, I feel ya man, I played so shitty last night it's not funny.  My new testing team (Mai, Hwa Jai, Clark) did better than any of my Chin+Shen last night lol.  We gotta level up!

It doesn't take too much skill....but it does require timing into getting the 99 hits down. Matures infinite isn't as easy as elizabeths 123  setup combo =P . i only picked mature to see if i can do the infinite...everything on my to do list is pretty much done

1.Beat Reynald (check)
2. Dropped kick everybody (check)
3.Mature infinite check

GGs to those i played last night, even though i got stomped on for the latter half. though there was an asian guy who was giving me a mad face every match we played. i think i'm going to retire my scrubby goro. i'm only useful with him against people who are terrible with footsies (how people almost got OCV'd by me basically doing s.D, i can't understand). i'm gonna try to stick with learning vice. i think shes a fun character. a lot different than her previous incarnations (i wish she had her qcb+K). after watching some good players last night, i feel like picking up king. i'm honestly surprised though that i don't see a lot of duolon. it was mostly k', andy, robert yesterday.

I'm definitely trying to go there all the time now lol.

I won't random against you anymore, it's tournament time :)  Oh and on that note, I was talking to Oscar today, we played around with the idea of post-poning the tourney if the patch is going to get here soon.  We'll see what the consensus is with everyone.

AI Tournament details has been updated again.  (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=230.msg2896;boardseen#new)
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: Kane317 on October 15, 2010, 09:44:47 AM
By request, I am setting up a survey to see what value we should assign each character as our perspective may differ from Japan's list (I wanted to setup a poll but it would only allow me to ask one question so we have to do it the old fashion way).

Per our conversation, ONLY the people that are participating should vote (which is the only way it makes sense).  I'll tally up all the values and if there's discrepancy for any character, the majority vote will win.  Here are the list of players that have voice that they want to be included and the rest need to get back to me ASAP:  Reynald, Kane317, Metaphysics, Chris G, Yoshi, Romance, Duc, The Answer

EDIT3: Revised list for usage.
Here is my list (with 5 total points)

5 K', Raiden
4 Kyo, Elisabeth, Kula, Andy, Iori, Robert
3 Shen, Takuma, Yuri  
2 Kim, Benimaru
1 Mai, Leona, Terry, Chin, Mature
0 Joe, Athena, Ralf, Ryo, Maxima, Hwa, Duolon, Clark, Vice, Kensou, Ash, Goro, King

Quick explanations: Reworked under mainly usage (objective) then any other reason like tier (subjective.)  Raiden was really the only one that was higher than his "usage" due to obvious reasons.  In terms of usage, I factored in how many players used it him or her mainly, BUT I also factored in how long they have used them (e.g Mai, a couple of us dab into her occasionally, but none of us her as our main except maybe Duc does, hence she's at 1) otherwise I've dabbed around with Goro, Hwa, Ash, Clark, Maxima a lot too and surely they can't be higher than 0.

Lastly, I re-looked over my list to factor teams in their permutations (5+0+0), (4+1+0, 4+0+0 and so forth), (3+2+1, 3+2+0, 3+0+0) etc... to make sure that, at least to me, they were still a solid team.

---
I really struggled with that list, I was going to just make it 4 divisions and change to total points but I think it'll just confuse everyone.  I chose 6 points 7 points as total since the 0pt section was so small and it wouldn't be fair for the K' and Raiden users.  For the record, my team is either going to be 6pts but most likely 5pts (so you can't say I'm being bias here).  Honestly, this system needs to revised a lot more but we're under time constraints.  I am open to any opinions.

EDIT: The more I think about it, that's the problem with moving everyone up, the total needs to be higher.  I might even change my vote to 8pts to make it interesting.

EDIT2: Hmm, something still feels off about it, the 0 category to should be much bigger and the total points can then be dropped.  I'll sleep on it first.

Wait why is Kensou 1 point when I'm the only one in this country that uses him? I thought this was based on character usage. He should be 0, that goes for Vice as well only Reynald uses her in the whole country. Hwa is another one, May should be 2 since there's atleast 3 people that use her. Maxima dropped to 1 no one uses him at all. Kim 3 since we have like 4 Kim users, Ash one only Duc uses him and RJ occasionally.

Well here is my list and I'm basing it on character usage, which I think that's the way is suppposed to be right? and I think 6 points sounds more reasonable.

5 K', Raiden
4 Kyo, Elisabeth, Kula, Andy, Iori
3 Shen, Takuma, Yuri, Robert,Kim
2 Chin, Benimaru, Terry,Mature,Mai,
1 Duolon, Goro, Clark,King, Ash,Leona
0 Joe, Athena, Ralf, Ryo,Vice, Kensou,Maxima,Hwa,

You know, halfway through making my chart I realized that when discussing the characters on the phone with the guys that we basing more on skillset, than on usage. I apologize, I'm going to have to rethink this again based on usage. So The Answer, I take it you're down to join us in this madness?

I'll revise my list when I get home. With that logic, Chin should be 1pt coz the only person who uses him is Reynald (and very recently too)-- not that it affects my team but...

lol good games to both of you guys, as well as everyone who showed up. after you guys left, we had about 8 players (some really good ones, though i didn't catch their names). i'm really surprised that out of my mains, vice did so well. people are really scared of the decide/splash oki. not sure if i'll actually make it out to the tournament (not that i'd do well after seeing my competition), but i'll try to make it out for a little bit. even when losing, i've been having lots of fun meeting new players and learning as i go along.

also, whoever it was that was using ash/kim/kula, please don't rip the stick out of the cab.

3kim,king,vice,iori,joe
2kensou,ralf,leona,mature,maxmia,chin
1ash,goro,ryo,athena,clark,hwa
(NOTICE THAT THERE ARE NO CHARACTERS RANKED AT "0")

my list is based on two things,character usage and character advantages.if you guys notice,the #4 section caries the strongest characters and i also think that these are the most commonly used characters at AI.so if its a 6 point tourney and if someone uses a 4 point character,then they'll be forced to pick 2 characters from #2 and below.so i strongly suggest for this tourney to be a 6 POINT TOURNEY.this way you will only be allowed to use one strong character.choosing a #5 character is suicide jajaja.

if you guys take some time to analyze what are the possible teams,then you'll find out that its pretty evened out.i think that this makes it more fair for everyone because no one will have the advantage of picking 2 or more strong characters.

well actually now that i think about it,hwa jai should be on the "0" section because if someone wants to pick a 5 point character,then they need to pick a #1 character and hwa jai. jajajajaja how cool is that.its actually a very dumb idea but in way its interesting.

Your list forces a K' or Raiden user to have to pick Hwa with no other option--at least give them 2-3 picks.  Also, Iori should be a 4 then.  If we decided with your list you should make the total 7 or make the top group start at 4pts and the last group 0 and the total coould be 4 or 5pts.  You're also missing Mai.

ok this is the list that yuhang and I worked out and I'll try to explain why?

5 K' (top tier character), Raiden (GOD tier character with DK)
4 Kyo (quite the few people can use him and he is a top tier character), Elizabeth(only I use her but you guys are gay and I know that she's a little stong :)), Kula (quite a few people use her), Andy,Robert ( too many people use both of this characters because they are soooooo basic)
3 Shen(again quite a few people use him), Takuma(I think he should be a 2), Yuri (enough people use her to be a 3 but thats it),Iori (same as Yuri)
2 Kim( I think he should be a 3 we have atleast 3 people who main him), Benimaru (only John and Rey use him so that's cool)
1 Mai (she should be a 5 just because Duc mains her now <3), Leona, Terry, Chin, Mature all this characters are seldomly use.
0 Joe, Athena, Ralf, Ryo, Maxima, Hwa, Duolon, Clark, Vice, Kensou, Ash, Goro, King (there's 0-1 person who use this characters on a regular basis so it's only fair)

So many lists. You guys have one y'all can agree on by tourney time? Hope the ppl who are doing this are prepared because if not, we'll see a lot of scrubby gameplay and or one sided matches.

Last week, I proposed that everyone post their list THAT night.  That was 4 days ago, it was meant to be discussed over the phone that night but by request, was asked to be posted on the forums.  It's a little irritating that it's taking this long but it's like herding cats right now .

@The Answer.  Let's roll with it, any decisive decision is better than none (oh and there's at least 2 other Liz players I just can't remember who now...I remember thinking you were the best of the three by far but there were 3.  Maybe that was weeks ago, oh well).  For the record, I agree with your tier listing although the sidenote of Raiden being GodTier I don't agree with, I think he's damn strong, needs balancing, but I don't think he's the best.  I think, TO ME,  K', Kula, Liz is more of a pain in the ass than Raiden.

EDIT: We decided to give the benefit of the doubt to the players that have yet to voice their opinion, but have said they are participating in the ratio system--to make it 6 points just so they have a bit more choices.  Note, 1pt and 0pt combined is 18 characters so that should be plenty to choose from if they choose a 5pt character.

4-Kula,Raiden,Andy,Elizabeth
3-Iori,Shen,Robert,Kyo
2-Yuri,Benimaru,Takuma,Kim(accidently put him at 1)
1-Ash,Terry,Leona,Chin,King
0-Maxima,Goro,Joe,Duo,Clark,Athena,Mature,Ryo,Kensou,Ralf,Hwa,Vice,Mai

I believe this to be a fair Ratio for everyone at AI.

I'll edit this later with a side note on the character placement.

Most of the characters i put into certain #s because I think thats where they place as a character in general (* and 4 mainly).

The rest would be character usage at AI.
<3>
Ioro- Should be at 4 but lacks usage.
Shen- Is where he should be as character even with the people using him at AI. (Don't see him better or as good as the characters ranked 4+)
Robert- I would've ranked at 2 but enough people use him to make him a 3.
Kyo- He is a solid character and has everything (xups, overheads, fireball, dp), but his character being very basic makes him predictable. It can be up for debate but I would have more problems playing against the 4s than Kyo.

<2>
Yuri- Only 2 people use Yuri, and only one effectively :) (no i wouldn't rank her at 3 because she isn't as easy to use as those in 3) If anything, I'd put her at 4 if everyone could use Yuri to her full potential.
Benimaru- Difficult to use, but the people that can use him makes him 2.
Takuma- I seriously don't see what the fuss is about. I've used takuma, even with his glitch, he isn't a very good character. He one of the worst defense while in the corner. If you know how to close in the gap correctly while hes playing keep away, he's cake.
Kim- Solid character but can be difficult to use in certain match ups. Only 3 people use him at AI so this would be a fair rank.

<1>
Ash- I would seriously rank as 3, but not enough people play him (and the ones that do aren't a big threat haha yes i went there)
Terry- Very hard character to use, even to his full potential he would be at most 1.5 because it does take skill to use terry effectively. (Just because Mr.KoF can use him very well, doesn't mean he should be a 2 or 3.... or dooooes it???)
Leona- Not enough people use Leona, I would rank her at 2 just as a character.
Chin- (refer to the comment about Terry).
King- King should be at 2, but not enough people use her...

<0>
Most of these characters aren't use enough. And others should stay at 0.

Getting Off Topic but, I was disagreeing moreso about the character versus Chin (not his ranking).  Terry has range, Terry has high low games (Chin does too but he has to get in first and with the lack of range+floaty jump you kinda lose half that game--he does have wake up hi-low games, I'll give you that), Terry has hit-confirmable two hitters with two command attacks (The Answer, metaphysics and I were just saying how some characters don't even have command attacks (Mai, Kensou etc...) while Robert and Terry has two lol), easier crossover due to range, real anti-air, a projectile, good pokes and so forth.  He's easier to use than Chin for sure, is he a "easy" character, not like Robert, Andy, Liz but he's still an easy character overall; most new players will try to pick up Terry due to his familiarity and ease of use.  (BTW, this is not to take away how well YOU use him)

Mature's pre-patch infinite > Raiden's drop kick. It seems like ppl are afraid of that kick because not that many people here can use him as effectively as my bro and jon. I'd prefer 16 seconds of not worrying about instant death than Mature's meter building/time consuming infinite. Too bad this game was patched up.

Totally agreed.  Mature's infinite was way worse than the DK.  I think he still needs some sort of balancing but I don't have a problem with people using Raiden.  K' is still, overall, worse. I know Ash disagrees with me as we had a lengthly discussion yesterday about Raiden vs K', one thing I just wanted to add is that I play against two K'es a lot (The Answer and Ash) and back then some Raidens, whereas you only playing against one K' user basically (I know there are others) so that's where my K' > Raiden perspective comes from.

not really relative to the running conversation, but i'll be at AI a bit tomorrow afternoon till whenever depending on the crowd. i want to try out some other characters just to see how that pans out.

also, i'm probably pushing my schedule by heading out there on saturday, though i probably won't participate.

It's all good, we were getting OT as usual anyways.  You really should participate, but if you're not, at least stop by and show your support :)  (Heck it's only $8 entrance fee, $3 of which goes to AI by default)

Played John 1v1 for awhile today, come to think of it I haven't played him like that in awhile and it's always a humbling experience as he straights you constantly.  I don't really say this enough, but Mr. Kof is damn good.  GG John. =)

damn it, yuhang. stop tempting me lol i'll consider it, if only to rep more vice and king. i'll let you have leona for the meantime (3rd pending).

i hope i'm able to play as often as i have been (once or twice every other week). i've been getting to get to know a few of the regular players and it's been pretty inspiring and a great experience to say the least. i hope you guys continue to build the scene to grow even stronger, though i wont be around to see it next year. i've been noticing a lot of ssf4 players stopping to watch a few matches, and i've been tempted every once in a while to introduce them or at least talk to them about the game. unfortunately, i'm not a very good draw since spectators constantly see me on the losing end lol

That's how it all begins, I remember when, Abe and I were strangers, Oscar and I were strangers, Cali-Mexicans, John, RJ, Duc etc...but that's how it all begins.

i hope you guys continue to build the scene to grow even stronger, though i wont be around to see it next year.

I must have missed it, why won't you be here?  I think you explained it to me but AI is too loud so it's hard to hear.

Nah keep at it, Abe used to lose every game in the beginning, but thru persistence and hard work he persevered (even some more experienced players quit along the way) and kept going.  I still lose the majority of the games to the regulars as well but it's always fun.  I also like the challenge to improve one's game so I keep at it.

I think a lot of how we list the point system has a bias on what characters we have the most trouble playing against. I'm sure the point system will change a lot once we figure out the weakness of each character rather than focusing on what the strengths of each characters are.

For example if you play a character and you know what your character's weakness is, you will rank it lower. However opponents may not realize and exploit those weakness, therefore still rank your character higher.

Pretty sure in time every character will converge to a closer rating to each other, but since there's a high demand of variety of characters in videos we'll partake in this point-based tournament.

Agreed, of course our lists have our biases.  Need I remind you out of the SBO 22 qualifiers in Japan (that listed their team here (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=210.msg2370#msg2370)) , 18 of them had K' on their teams, perhaps suggesting that whatever weakness they felt K' had, it wasn't big enough to stop them having him on the team--better yet, whatever weakness they felt K' had, it wasn't as bad as the weaknesses that Raiden, Liz, Kyo etc have...hence the picks (Then next popular were Kyo: 8 Elisabeth: 7 Kula: 7 Raiden: 6). You should take that as a compliment, we all find K' hard to deal with :)  On with our tournament (T-minus...)


-----------------

GOOD GAMES EVERYONE who came out to the tournament. The results are....












...wait for the videos. All joking aside, we all decided it'll be more enjoyable if people watched the videos without knowing the results beforehand. :)

Very good point I guess it was okay to PLEASE the people here on the forums that want variety, however I do feel like it was somewhat unfair for some people who can not affort to go to AI more than once a week and practice with other characters. As a matter of fact I would like to request for my matches to NOT be uploaded since my performance was shameful.

I see what you mean but I already know what the problem is in my case, I don't know how use any other characters besides K', Kula, Elizabeth and my Kensou is just too rusty. I haven't had the TIME or MONEY to do so and I hope my request is respected.

So how did that affect you, you were going to play two randoms ANYWAYS.  Or are you saying that your competition wasn't good enough?

WOW.  

Please the forums?  You got this all wrong, I never went into this to please the forums.  You know, the ratio system was OPTIONAL and you could have chosen your normal characters, EVERYBODY could.  I asked you, are you in for the ratio system, you said "I'm down." EDIT: (Found your quote and placed it at the bottom) Now I'm hearing complaints...too funny.  So you didn't play as well as you thought, (we all didn't) I still upload matches that I lose all the time.  From the first tourney there were a couple of upsets (Duc), their matches still got uploaded, they didn't complain.  Should I not upload my matches until I win a major tournament?

If you had won with your characters, you wouldn't be complaining.

Agreed. Time (and money in this case) is needed if we want to pick up new characters and be comfortable enough to put them in the lineup.

Urm, then choose your characters RJ.   I think this is a huge COP-OUT coming from the guy who chose two randoms and now feels like it was a bad idea.  You could have participating the "regular way".

I see what you mean but I already know what the problem is in my case, I don't know how use any other characters besides K', Kula, Elizabeth and my Kensou is just too rusty. I haven't had the TIME or MONEY to do so and I hope my request is respected.

Then choose your regular characters, nobody was stopping you.  I'm actually rather disappointed in the both of you, not in your performance, but your complaints like sore losers.  To me, it's more shameful that you're complaining like this than your actual performance.

I'm down for anything (no homo)

I'll add you to the list. Btw, I'm going today and most likely the last time before the tournament. EDIT: Revised my list.

Furthermore, we said it already, the ratio system is unofficial, nobody HAS TO participate--if you feel that ratio system does not serve you well you can still join the tourney and choose any character.  


---

Going back to WHY we did the tournament, if we just focus on the positive instead of the negative, we can watch they tourney and think to ourselves, "hmm this character is pretty interesting, or that character is pretty interesting--I should pick them up."  I think the secondary affects of the tournament is harder to see, but down the line I'm sure it'll spark the interest of picking up new characters.  If we did our videos to "please" the internet then we would have failed simply because anyone can see the KCE videos have higher quality matches than we do.

That's more like a responsible player.  I wasn't as prepared as I thought I was, but I'll take my losses, give credit where it's due (GG, to those who beat me, I'm trying to leave out the name so the match outcomes aren"t revealed, and work harder on my game.)

The reason I said it sounded like you were complaining is coz you said it takes time and money for people to learn new characters etc...once again, it was OPTIONAL to take part in the point system.  Maybe people was over-confident in their abilities to win with new characters.

It was for fun, (most ppl that stayed behind agreed it was so much fun) but I don't recall ever saying the results not being reported.  As for not posting up your video, I suppose you can talk to whoever you played because they have a right to have their match uploaded--of course if he or she agrees I respect any request (I suspect they'll agree with you anyways but it's more out of courtesy to both parties).  

On that note, I have to find out what Scott is doing coz he mentioned he's not going to upload them to YouTube directly this time, I think he mentioned something about uploading to a server and we get to download and upload the matches we want, I'll talk to him about it so we have more control over it.

ahh i assumed, since the quote you quoted was in response to something i said earlier, that it was referring to me. no offense taken at all lol. i just like misunderstandings to be sorted out.

on topic though, i can't speak for anyone else, but we all chose the characters that we chose. there are no excuses for that. if anyone wants to play competitively and footage is taken, that's just how things go sometimes. sure, you'll get screentime when you're at your worst, but thats part of putting yourself out there and putting your skills on the line. didn't like how you played or how things went down? play more. get better. when it comes down to it, when a "real" tourney comes around and you decide to play "serious", if you lose badly there are no excuses. when you come to play, you play.

note: this isn't directly aimed at anyone in particular. i just don't see a point to why there was such a fuss before and after this tourney. it's over. play the game.

Agreed 100%.  I think people knew that it would be recorded, they know they can choose whoever, then they should accept whatever consequences results from it.  I'm the first to admit, I get straighted ALL the time.  I've told Ivan and Abe several times I feel that I'm easily the player that needs-the-most-work out of the regulars (laymen terms: the worst), I'm ok with it.  Maybe I should use different characters, but that's my problem and I'll deal with it.

I will point out that The Answer has a valid point that he feels that there's no honor in playing someone handicapped, but that should go both ways--then it should be an honorable lost as well etc.

Well, I did feel that not everyone was playing at their best. But it seems as if some of the people who were learning new characters for the passed 2 weeks were having more fun using and finding out new things about those characters instead of using their same mains.

As for the ratio, I think it is best that we wait till console to do this. It's not like we're in Asia where there's an arcade in walking distant for me to go to everyday, or for anyone in that matter.

Yeah that was the whole point, it was fun as hell to try out new characters.  Half-way through the tournament Duc pointed out to me I could swap out Leona for Shen and still make the 6 pt cut (I think I got stuck in the 5pt mentality and forgot about it when we changed it to 6.) You even said the outcome probably would have been different if I choose Shen/Chin/Mai instead of Mai/Leona/Chin, but I wanted to have fun with Leona and I don't regret it.

i just wanted to interject on the videos and whatnot. at this point, AI, and you guys specifically, have established yourselves in the minds of the greater fighting game community as the place to play KOFXIII in the USA. the other fighting game sites, like Iplaywinner and SRK, post up these videos, and other players are getting hype about the game, which is necessary if we wanna see this game at EVO 2011 (which Mr. Wizard says is very possible, btw. check out the latest live episode of WakeupSRK).

so yeah, i personally believe that uploading as many of these videos as possible would be a good thing, and mad props to you guys for doing it. the community is looking towards you guys to show them how to play this game!

I've been meaning to post this up for ages.  Here are the stats for character usage from the data log for our XIII machine at AI.  Sadly, patch v1.1 only so it's was only 2 weeks of data tops (so take this data with a grain of salt since most of us were preparing for the Ratio Tourney), eventually we'll find the older one where it had 6+ weeks of data.  I'll try to see if we can get the data in 4-8 weeks to see if it's change.  EDIT: Sorry about the formatting.

Oh yeah BTW, me and Oscar are planning a big tournament next year with a Japanese player (for 13 of course) and Kula from Puebla, Mexico in Tijuana just wanted to give you guys a heads up, yes it will revolve around KOF13 and yes you guys will have the time needed to make sure you are back in tip top shape for KOF13.

Why is this? Well besides the usual stuff, Kula from Puebla, Mexico feels he can beat all of you guys in any KOF, this is what I have been told on the phone by Lecter many times, and so I will give him the opportunity to do so in Tijuana when me and Oscar have our tournament.

Dune will also keep me posted in regards to someone for 13 overseas that way we can stir the pot a little bit more...

Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop...

C ya later my friends!

Oscar told me about it.  I'm sure Kula could probably beat us, I know some may disagree but I feel that our level as a whole is still pretty low comparatively speaking.  We're high for the US and...that's about it lol.  Asia and South America where they actually have a real scene and competition (you don't have to drive 30 miles to get to), should have a higher level.  Duc and I were joking how nobody NEAR AI actually plays it, everyone drives 20+ miles in to play lol. EDIT: Spoke too soon, nice meeting you Norris Nores today.  Glad to see some new faces around AI that know how to play and from the old school era like myself.  GG.

also GGs to guy whose name i didn't catch. he uses mai/ash/iori. i've played with him a few times before. things were really back and forth for a while when we were both dropping combos and hitconfirms so bad, but once he picked up his game, i got crushed pretty bad lol

You really should hook up with Metaphysics, I dunno if he's going but it'll be worth it. So far Duc and I are going to be there along with Oscar of course. I dunno about John and Reynald and I believe RJ is out of town.

Can we Free play in between 10 and 5?

My biggest concern is that SNKP is going to be there and I wouldn't want them to think that we are fixing the signups specially since there's a cap.

SNKP is actually going to be there?  I think a bunch of angry 2k2UM  Xboxers are going to mob SNKP to complain about the netcode (again).

EDIT:


WOW.  Super fun night at AI.  GG to everyone and it was one of those days that you just WISHED you recorded the matches.  Cool seeing LainySky and Gorehound again and even Brian (button masher) was there.   So many close matches, awesome comebacks, energy was off the hook.

Highlight of the night was Reynald's Vice combo (WHICH I MISSED coz I was busy AIMing Homies over Shoto, just heard the screams and looked up but it was too late):
(anti-air) s.A, Ex hcf K, s.D, f.A, Ex qcb P, s.D, Ex hcf K, s.D, f.A, HD ---> (but opponent dies before he could finish)

Today was fun as hell Abe, I tried some of the tricks on Duc when he came but it wasn't as effectively.  Which brings me to my next point, I think Mai excels on characters that doesn't share her jump arc -- Beni however, has the same jump arc or similar enough.  Between his air throw, jump d.D, air.qcf+P his has the same amount of options as Mai lol, and he has the dp+K so I can't do the same mix ups haha.

GG Jon (I would said GG guys but we didn't really get to play each other lol), he didn't use any lube this time and he racked up a 39 win streak; haven't seen that since opening week.  Course Oscar, Cali-Mexicans, and Reynald weren't around but nevertheless impressive especially for using different characters most games.

On a very random note I was doing some thinking, I feel that they way John match-ups in SSIV with the US players would most accurately depict how he would do in KOF in Asia; He'd win games, streaks at times but I believe his exact words were, "too many good players" so it'll be harder to secure a "name" for himself.

My exact words were "there are alot of good players in SF4". Remember i am not playing at a competitive level in SF4. In KOF its not about the win streaks. It's not about championships won. It's about being deemed as the better KOF player OVERALL.

* I received the name "Mr.KOF" from the street fighter players.
* According to other fellow U.S. HK players they have said I have surpassed Ray and William in terms of being the best now. I still miss the days of playing with them on a  weekly basis.

I'll add my 2 cents (real talk):

As much as I respect your talents and recognize your skill -- I'm always here to keep you in check (heh), the Mr KOF title has always, will always be, pretentious if you ask me and it doesn't matter who gives it to you, especially players that don't play KOF.

None of the HK/Taiwan players in AI are exceptionally impressive including William and Ray (but they're up there), they're were good in their hay day but I've seen some monster players in HK, (and consider that I've seen and played against Ma'an and Salim among others good players as well). 

Don't get me wrong, I *know* where I stand (and that's average at best) and I'm not naive either coz if I had to categorize you, I'll say your play style is very unique, your fundamentals are as solid as they get, you have an uncanny ability to read minds and a lot of times your skill isn't apparent by watching 1 or 2 of your matches alone. =)

Heh.

Let me join this "real talk" with Yuhang as another senior (literally lol) member.

Back in 98' I thought I was good until the day I met Ray at GameX and proved me completly wrong, Back in 02' I thought I was good until the day I met RF at EVO and destroyed me.

I am not going to take any credit from Jon, I do think he is the best KOF player in the US at the moment, unfortunally he doesn't have enough competition to take his skills to the next level or international level. I'm sure that next year Jon will get to face a true opponent either from Jap or Mex (don't wanna take any credit from the AI players either) who plays to win and not just for fun.

Jon how good do you think you would be if some how you would be able to play against yourself on a daily basis? I know sounds stupid but it actually is possible unlike here in the US I know that in Mex there are tons of players who have very high skills and they get to play each other on a daily basis. Imagine you vs 10 more Jons waiting to play in one cab, how good would that one Jon who gets a win streak would be?

Miss you guys hope to see you soon...(maybe poker night at my new place :D)

I know the competition in the U.S. for KOF  is very scarce...but I'm sure i can beat the top players at a 50/50 level if we're both playing at our best. I'm not here to represent a country..I'm trying to win for myself. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and i can appreciate that =P

I'm sure I'd win without ease playing with players from other countries who play this on a  competitive level on a daily basis.  I know and understand there are a bunch of players at my level overseas. You can say that I am "Iron Mike Tyson" from back in the day who was a god...it just happened he was fighting in the wrong era.

Either Way thank you guys for your two cents. Let's all play KOF very soon!

That could have gone a lot worse, cool. Anyways, Giby and Nocturnal are making their way down here tomorrow so I'm going to swing by around 6pm.

EDIT:Turns out Giby is probably not going to make it, no word on Nocturnal though yet.  Still going to make it down.

EDIT 2:Ok Nocturnal is making it along with a friend and a small chance that Giby might still make it.

EDIT 3:Fail.  Noc's probably not going to make it.

In other news:  I hate to be the bearer of bad news but here's the update with AI per talking to Ken/Owner last night.  He said the county is giving him a hard time and want to renew his permit (which of course he has from back in the days).  He said he's not interested in the "price" of the permit that he's forced to renew (he's saying they're basically just trying to get more money) and if he was to relocate, he would face the same roadblock.

Basically he said, he's going to run as long as he can until they find him still operating without a valid permit now.  Don't quote me on anything guys, but that's the word.

Sucks to hear that, all of us need to get together one more time and take a memorable picture. Also hopefully we can work something out with Ken and the owner of Alex's Arcade so that we can get XIII in Orange County.

looks like january 15th is going to be AI's last day. will definitely try to make it out there a few times after new years. even though i haven't been there as long as most of you, it's been a lot of fun learning and playing and meeting all of you. for the most part, the arcade scene in america is dead relative to almost everywhere else in the world. yet, i haven't had this much fun going to an arcade in years. i would never have dreamed that driving through crazy socal traffic just to spend money and lose constantly would still keep me coming back for more. good times, good games. even though i wasn't able to go as often as i liked (thanks life!), i'll probably still make it out to other arcades that have the game, but without you guys and without the atmosphere, as they say "IT AIN'T GON' BE THE SAME!"

I haven't been playing KoFXIII at all (I know, I'm such a quitter), but Arcade Infinity is closing. Their lease is up the 31st of December, which means they could get kicked out anytime after that date.

The SRK post is here (http://www.shoryuken.com/f24/arcade-infinity-end-era-closing-jan-15th-216126/index187.html#post10014587).

Facebook Event (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=134465213280491)

This Thursday, I'll probably be there with some buddies, just to make sure i get some fun, happy times in before the end of their lease, in case any shenanigans happy. I think I'm going to scrub out on every machine in the arcade, lol.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

so I was wondering if any of you guys have ever been to Video 94? well there's probably no reason till now to go. Well it's alright for not being an arcade, however the joysticks are pretty loose, the ball top kept unscrewing and falling off lol, I had to tighten it numerous times, and the game felt a little laggy possibly? or different from AI, but the cool thing is since its so small, and it has SSIV AE, everybody else is watching Although I didn't get to play anybody, And its open earlier, plus for me.

I headed back to A.I. as soon as it opened tho lol

post from Kapwan13 on SRK:

"AI HAS BEEN SAVED.

At least according to Arcade Infinity facebook page. I hope this is true. Here is the message that was posted by Eddie Lehecka Login | Facebook

AI is being saved by the owners of Diamond Plaza. After seeing all of the public outcry over the closing, and how active this particular event page has been since the announcement, they've worked out a deal with AI to significantly help their operating costs and keep the arcade open for an unspecified period of time. While currently the arrangements that the landlords have made with the city of Rowland Heights regarding AI's business license will only cover them for 6 more months, they're working out arrangements to extend it up to a period of 3 years. We'll know the outcome of this sometime in March when the approval is made or denied.

Either way, thanks to the landlords we get to keep AI for at the very least a few months longer. After speaking with Ken, the first action they're gonna be taking with this turn of events is to put some money into getting 4 Super Street Fighter 4 AE setups running, beatmania IIDX 18 RESORT ANTHEM (possibly in a new cabinet), DDR X2, pop'n music 18 SENGOKU RETSUDEN, and a few other titles that he's has his eye on for a little while.

Also just to clarify a bit on the closing of the arcade, while a good portion of it had to do with earnings (or lack thereof) the nail in the coffin was actually delivered by the city of Rowland Heights. AI's business license was to expire in December, and the costs that they originally wanted the Tao brothers to pay to keep things open was just completely unreasonable for how much money the arcade was pulling in. The landlords have since worked with the City to make their license renewal a possibility, and have secured them an extension.

With all of this being the case, we still want to encourage everyone to make their way out to the arcade this Saturday. Instead of a last chance to play at one of the best arcades the US has ever seen, let's celebrate their 10 years of continued business and contribution to the arcade industry in North America!"

let's hope this is true.

I'm assuming Arcade Infinity is located inside a mall? If so, wouldn't it make more sense to use this time and money to locate a new area where they won't have to experience this kind of trouble again while also keeping the local populace happy and possibly attracting new people to their place? Like I said, this is all assuming they are inside a mall.

Oh wow, I think this answer the  other question I posed in the XIII Cabinet thread (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=123.msg9068#msg9068). 

Logically, if SNKP is going bad financially (just a hunch, although I'd be surprised if I was wrong), then they're probably not keeping the XIII production pumping overtime hence if there's a finite number of XIIIs floating around, and nobody seems to be reselling theirs; are SNKP reselling their 1.0s?

He said he did talk to Mr. KOF, so I am telling people that if they want to play with this guy just send me a message and I will connect you with him! It's rare you have someone of his calibur living in the United States! This guy Armando is Kula's trainer in KOFXI, in other words he is better than Kula in KOFXI!

Be that as it may DG, I think especially with consideration to SNK's current "state", I think it would be irresponsible as a KOF/SNK fan not to play XIII if they have access to it.  We can be all nostalgic and play all the older titles if SNKP bites the dust, for now, we should do whatever it takes to feed their lifeline.

We understand it's only natural to want to play the title that he or she is good at, but XIII is the future whether they like it or not.

I think it's super exciting to hear that XIII is popping up all over the place (how exactly, I still haven't put my fingers around it but that's another discussion altogether) and I think it's clear that we as a community need to seize this momentum and ride the XIII wave, it'll only speed up the console release if SNKP is making money.

I agree, he was telling me about how John only wanted to play 13 and SSF4. He wanted to play some KOFXI lol. But with that said yes you are right, I am going to tell him it's best to start learning KOF13 as well, and I'll do my best to handle him having people to play in KOFXI. He was disappointed though hearing that John wouldn't play him in KOFXI, he was looking forward to that!

Kula is focusing on KOF13 actually, so much that he feels his level in KOF 2002 has gone down because he hasn't played it in a while seriously, so the bottom line again is going to be determining when how and where to setup Kula vs. Mr. KOF in KOF13.

I do feel for him, having come all this way from another country only to not be able to play his game, but I'm sure RJ will entertain him and we'll probably setup some house KOF parties to play the older titles once XIII comes out as well. =)

Post by: Dark Geese on January 28, 2011, 05:02:57 PM
Well I'll tell him to get a hold of RJ, and yeah we could do Kula vs. John in 13 in Cali for a certainty, I was just thinking we were gonna do it at that torunament we were gonna plan Oscar, but hard to do that when we do NOT know when the console release for the game is going to happen!

In regards to him coming to the USA, remember it's much easier for us to go there, and by that it means we only need a passport, no visas!

Mexicans coming to the USA need a passport and a visa!  So what happens if we have all of this setup, and he gets denied a visa?

Also knowing Kula, he will play anyone...so he'll play Reynald of anyone!

Well I'll tell him to get a hold of RJ, and yeah we could do Kula vs. John in 13 in Cali for a certainty, I was just thinking we were gonna do it at that torunament we were gonna plan Oscar, but hard to do that when we do NOT know when the console release for the game is going to happen!

In regards to him coming to the USA, remember it's much easier for us to go there, and by that it means we only need a passport, no visas!

Mexicans coming to the USA need a passport and a visa!  So what happens if we have all of this setup, and he gets denied a visa?

Also knowing Kula, he will play anyone...so he'll play Reynald of anyone!

Exactly...

Just wanted to give you guys the heads up, Kula is going to come in here and he can write in English!! lol.

FYI he thinks he can beat you guys in 13 already, he feels the level of play in Puebla right NOW is very similar to the level he sees on the vids at AI in KOF13, he plays a lot of characters too!
 
Also hate to break it to you Oscar, but guess who Kula's best character is? RAIDEN. LMFAO.

I'm not surprised, i said it from the beginning when the day comes to play to win people will abuse that fat ******.

I have nothing against that thou, I'm all about "if it's in the game use it" but if snkp doesn't fix the drop kicks by the console this game will be another complete failure.

Raiden as a main? I hope he has other characters on par with raiden.....Good thing he watches the vids...but IMO I do not think Reynald will lose to KULA in  13.

Kula uses Raiden, Kyo, Elizabeth, Robert he says and others as well. I am very much eager to see Kula vs. Reynald and Mr. KOF in KOF13, you guys know me, I'm gonna be Don KING and Hype it up! LOL.

PandaChaos-What's up man? Yeah man Armando is very very strong as well in 2002, and yeah I think once he learns 13 we will have someone else very very strong in the game in the USA that is very very strong in 2002/UM/KOFXI!

You know, as long as its not K' (CHEAP), it's all good. But if he really thinks he can beat us watching older videos, then i would have the pleasure of accepting his challenge if he were to come down here. I play 13 only twice a month, so i hope he CAN beat me with all of his training.

Just a warning though, if Kula can't use Raiden effectively against me or John, then he's going to be giving us a free character win. But I'm sure there won't be any problems if he feels ready to beat us.

After talking to Kula right now online and talking to Oscar a few days ago, there is going to have to be a middle ground of sorts. Coming from Mexico it is hard to get a visa to get entry into the United States. However, talking to him now, he has said the owner of Puebla invites you guys to come to Puebla he will cover housing and food, we just have to donate something to him. Do not worry about that I will cover that and try to get a solid Japanese player over as well.

So you guys basically just need a passport, then we can setup a Puebla International tournament for KOF13 and make it very special!

Kula just told me in response to you guys:

Reynald- His game is getting much much stronger and he is sure that he is going to defeat you all.
Mr. KOF- He wants to play you in more than just KOF13, are you game?

Buttons and joysticks were American setup...Even my opponent made a remark about his arms hurting due to the joystick LOL.

Hey, I play at SFSU and can answer any questions if you want. The basics are it has a HD monitor so there's a couple of frames of lag according to the more experienced players. Parts are Sanwa. There's 5 buttons so you can choose either old school ABCD or the newer two rows, one is AC bottom is BD. It's a showcase cab that's similar to this one except for the parts and the decals etc. http://www.leisuremachinesdirect.co.uk/prodimages/110.jpg

       well first I want to say it was awesome to see almost all of the original A.I. KoF XIII players saturday it brought a big smile to my face, congrats to Reynald and John in the championship match and always reminding me that I'm a mere mortal lol.I wish there was a forum or stage For you guys to  display your talents and to show what you guys have been showing us for along time, that you both are truly remarkable players. for all the A.I. family I'm really gonna miss you guys, all of you taught me how to play KoF, even if it was whiffing like five Dp's in my face to gain meter and land fat ass combo's, or if it was just straight up ass whoopins to show me what's up, It all motivated me and challenged me to see if I had what it takes to get better.  I Really felt that Arcade Infinity was the central hub that brought all the players to an equal middle ground from opposite directions in all of So Cal.  I want to say thanks to all the players again

Oscar(THE ANSWER) Thanks for making it easy to be a party of A.I. KoF XIII I wish could've played your super tier team more lol

Yuhang(Kane317) your are a super straight up dude and I appreciated you always willing to help me out, your chin is godlike haha. The # 1 KoF XIII ambassador

Duc(Ash) I know you say you used to be hella good, but I still think you got it, props for not picking K at the tournament. and your small little tidbits of tips have helped out more than you know

John( Mr.KoF) man I have to say playing against you and losing 99.6 percent of the time has probably motivated me the most out of anything, you challenged my intelligence, indurance, and dedication. And to be honest I didn't know you were famous in the beginning but I always knew you were something great.I wish you the best of luck in your future, RESPECT!!

RJ(4leaf) I wish I had got to play you more, I'll never forget your performance at SoCalRegionals that shit was soooo tight

Ivan (Fatacon) man you better show those dudes what's up with AI KoF In Nor Cal man, it was great playing you and always appreciated all of your input as well

Reynald man you one talented dude to almost not play at all for months and then comeback and smash on people damn that was crazy, thanks for the great matches with John soo exciting

and to all the Cali Mexican dudes, you guys are so solid at Kof man I always appreciated how you guys never took it easy on me and I respect that a lot, AI wasn't the same without you guys.

Respect and Love to all I hope to see you guys somewhere in the future.

Reading your post Abe makes the reality really sink in that AI is going to be a thing of the past (just like SoCal Golfland where I met the majority of you guys).

There's not much more I can add to that post as I agree with every comment you made, and you Abe, sir, know how much we respect how far you've come in such a short amount of time.  This side of Reynald's freak-of-nature, there aren't many that can learn  kof in a few months and hang with the rest of us oldies--nothing replaces hard work and you're a shinning example of it.

Just wanted to reiterate that I felt that overall, it was the best tournament we had at AI by far, and short of the Raiden shennanigans in the end, it was a super exciting nail-biting tourney to watch.  Seeing all the old faces pop up one last time really did put a grin on my face and it's always humbling to know that the Cali-Mexicans can put you in check whenever they show up.

MVP character (yeah I know that doesn't make sense) is undoubtedly B.a.l.a's Duo Lon showing us what's up and how to really use him; if it's true how little he's played XIII then he really did live up to his reputation.

Also, it's good to finally see Duc (Ash) place in a respectable position in an AI tournament, we have no idea what happened to you the first two tourneys but I'm glad you're back in shape.

P.S. Special shoutout to StolenHope, I appreciate you showing up and it doesn't take a lot of nerves to wanna still participate when you know the odds are stacked up against you, keep playing my friend and get your friend to play too!

Good news! the KOF XIII board is staying in SoCal, as of right now is in my house serving as a door stop (loljk) and I'll probably have it for a few days before it makes it's way to Alex's Arcade (AA) in the heart of Santa Ana, CA.

I do not know if you all are aware, but there is a Japanese player named No. 17 from California that is attending a tournament in Puebla, Mexico this coming weekend for KOF 13, I do not know if you all know about him, but I thought I would bring that up because it is ironic that there will be two Japanese players in Mexico on back to back weekends and Kula will be at both tournaments (March 5th Puebla tournament, March 10-13 The KOF Cup with Hummer).

Kula told me first about this, I checked on Cx.com and I did see the thread with the guy posting up, so I thought you guys would be interested in hearing that.


Kula even told me he is going to give me the videos when I see him in Juarez, so that would be something I think good to talk to him about.

The Japanese player said he's not that good in 13 but I guess now Mexican KOF is gaining steam on an international level (I wonder why? lol) so Japanese players want to go play there!

There is the thread by the way, yes they are speaking in Spanish, but No. 17 is speaking in English, so you can see this guy is flying out from LOS ANGELES... (Yamato talks about it in Spanish about flying from LA to Puebla)

I will contact this guy on your behalf, I have an interview scheduled with him that people will do for me this weekend, I will upload it to my youtube channel accordingly and get in contact with this No. 17 player.

Lol, I got it, if you look above, but I put myself on a time-out for being inappropriate haha.

As for this No.17 guy, where do these random ppl come from?  Surely they've heard of AI if they play KOF.  Maybe he's like that one Moroccan guy that only plays on console but lives only 30 mins from AI (or where AI was *sob*).

Now that Alex's Arcade has the old XIII board from AI, it's interesting to see a new community grow and frankly pretty exciting. 

Just today we had a couple of interested ppl wanting to learn the game, I hope he registers here (Dan).   One step at a time but I'm confident we can get 5-6 new players in a month or so.

well then to continue with this discussion,once again ill post up what i said on the other forum.:)

whats up guys!!!i hear this weekend's tourney was awesome...i wasnt able to make it but im glad my crew was well represented.anyways,we were actually thinking of organizing a kof 13 tourney ourselves in japan arcade.but there are two things i would like to menttion before u guys tell me your opinion.the first one is that the game is played on american joysticks...and the second thing is that its the first version of the game(0.0 not 0.1 or what ever the new version is called jajaja).we've been discussing this for while now and i just wanted to know what u guys think.
   
like ramond said,we can probably figure out a way to place the game on another cabinet(japanese style of course).we can also establish some rules for the game since its the old version(like no mature or joe infinits,or smashing out of iori's super,etc....)

well then i guess ill just keep u guys updated within the next few days to let u know what we've done so far to make this happen.hopefully everything works out cause we are very exicted about this!!now that we have more access to the game i honestly feel that we've improved our gameplay.:)

by the way,thanks for the support!!!!

He said that there's not enough people to make such a big investment I know it doesn't sound like much but SANWA part are about 3X the price of american. I can kinda understand where they are coming from now that I know how much is to maintain a cab and how long it takes to make some money back.

UPDATE: They will be asking you guys in the next few days about the control panel, so make sure that ALL, ALL of you are in the same page cause if they response if 50/50 60/40 they are not going to do it, so spread the world and say that you are THE ANSWER's friends and if you wanna add that I'm the coolest person in the world that is up to you  :) ;) lol

Offer is much appreciated, but I think we have everything we need right now. I think I may need to pick up extra HDD considering the fact that capturing raw vid takes up so much space. We'll do a trial run with it this weekend maybe and see how it goes. Once I get the vids, I'll probably give them to Kane317 to upload if his Cox is fast.

Hey! Just curious, how are you guys in SoCal? Found a new home yet after the unfortunate events that went down at the old one ):?

The kof13 machine was bought by the answer and he's putting it at an arcade in orange county called Alex's Arcade, so it's even closer distance-wise for a lot of us.

On a side note, we have a news update for the live capture feed. Today after hours of trying and a bunch of different cable set ups, we've still stuck at a point where we can only output to the cabinet screen or my computer, not both.

It appears that the monitor for the cabinet only accept analog vga/component, and with that we're unable to capture in 720p. If we connect it straight to my computer only, it can take 720p but the monitor on the cabinet will have no signal. We're still in the process of figuring out what we can do to get you guys HD streams. Our next step is to get a digital -> analog converter (dvi-d to vga) which is fairly costly. The second idea is to bring a seperate tv that will accept digital and connect it there. Problem with that is that the tv would have to be on the side and we would need to get a convert for the joysticks to play on the side of the machine.

We put in a lot of time and effort (don't forget money) to get this working, so let's pray this works!

Here's a sample capture we took today (no sound, too lazy to hookup)

On a side note, over the weekend I drove up to Monterey Park to meet up with Scott our former AI direct feed guy to grab our footage of our last tourney at AI, which I have in possession now.  Needs loads of editing due to being de-synced and also some cutting of the rounds where characters were incorrectly selected.  Check in around Wednesday, just in time to get jacked up for this coming weekend!

Is it Wednesday yet?

The quality of the file is worse than I thought, it desyncs every now and then (file is over 2hrs+ long), too much trouble to try to readjust it, so I think I'm just going to upload it tonight.

EDIT:  Lol, putting up a damn watermark is a lot harder than I thought it would be haha.  I fell asleep on the table trying to research how to do it.

What prog do you use to edit your video files? Visible or invisible watermark? I'm guessing visible, which isn't too bad depending on what you want to do. I can try editing and fixing desync if you want.

I'll be free finally to go to AA sometime this weekend (most likely Fri or Sat), so let me know which would be a better day to go. Though my time in SoCal is slowly coming to a close, I really wish I had more time to play and practice to prepare for going back and playing the guys up north. Anyway, let me know, it'll be good to have some matches with you guys again. The time is always so long inbetween the sessions I play, I feel like I'm playing it for the first time everytime lol not really a good excuse though since Reynald never plays and he's up there with John at usually every tourney ;)

Visible watermark (www.dreamcancel.com logo that nilcam sent me), as for the desyncing, it's noticable at times but it fixes readjusts itself again.  The main thing is I want the video up before this weekend as we're already one tourney behind.

This Saturday is the tourney, Oscar will post it up if he hasn't already.

Those characters are still hard to fight against gimmick or not. I'd rather play against Reynald's Shen than his Chin.

Btw Athena is a good choice. I think I have an idea of what kind of characters you like to use. One with good mix up/mind games.

Since that tournament we've had 3 more that were recorded, AI farewell, and 2 at alex's arcade. All of them are on Kane317's youtube account.

I'm using avertv hd dvr to record on virtual dub. The issue we've been having the whole time was that to get 720p captured, we needed a digital signal, but the LCD there was analog only. Once we figured that out we just got a dvi-d to vga digital to analog converter.

you know I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if Arcades in So Cal were ranked by skill level. Like if all the arcades had a tournament for each discipline and whoever gets first would grant their Arcade with the #1 rank. And tournaments that would follow would be held by the first place arcade for home court advantage. So the title of #1 could change at any given tournament.

So say Japan arcade were to defeat the AA players. We would have to go to Japan arcade and win first place to get the #1 rank back. And each player may only represent one Arcade

That could work for any game and it would be so sick too because it promotes players to go to the arcade to represent

Alex's Arcade: #1-KoF XIII, #1 SSFIV AE, #1 MVC  just a thought lol

I think it's a great idea in theory, but only having 2 arcades with XIII is kinda defeating the purpose really (or at least 2 with ppl actually playing in it).  Furthermore, I know how the Cali-Mexicans feel about the Japanese sticks vs American sticks etc...  It's going to be a pain but I guess it won't hurt in trying.

I wonder how FFA is doing with XIII.  Now SSFIV and MvC3 on the other hand, I can totally see it happening.

Still wish we could have the NesicaxLive over here in the states, that's the only way I can see arcades remotely surviving after the console release; it forces you to train at home, but if you want your name on the rankings, then you have to play in the arcades.  I'm sure they can have a separate ranking system for console.

I wonder how FFA is doing with XIII.

I was actually at FFA on Friday (for MBAACC though lol). To be honest their setup is kinda... lackluster, I guess? They put it in a Super Megalo cab with a Westinghouse LCD TV and computer speakers hooked up to it. No joke. COMPUTER SPEAKERS. It was next to a KOF 2002 machine, which was getting significantly more play. Some guy was complaining about how XIII was 50 cents a game. I only played one guy who was semi-competent. He had decent fundamentals but he didn't know how to utilize the new system mechanics properly (drive cancelling/HD). I asked if it ever got busy and he said normally it did on Fridays but not that day probably because of Easter weekend. My opinion is, don't go there thinking it'll be anything like AI/AA or Japan Arcade for XIII.

Someone needs to suggest to make it a quarter, I understand that's it's an expensive game, and they need an ROI--but after 8-9months of release nobody is going to want to pay 50cents.  If it was a quarter, and there was indeed some challengers, I wouldn't mind going up there once in a while on a Friday.  For 50cents, no thank you (especially for such a setup).  Is it at least Japanese sticks?

Should be JPN sticks, the set up he's describing is the old BBCS set up.

How is the turnout for the game at Japan Arcade? I haven't been there, and I don't hear much about it even after Ralph bought the place.

Sanwa sticks and buttons. Probably needs a bit of maintenance though. 1P balltop kept coming loose after every few matches and 2P buttons were, at times, unresponsive.

Yes.  As a reminder, Gunsmith is arriving at Alex's Arcade at 5:30 this Friday (4/29), please introduce yourself to him and make him feel home; he has already arrived in LA already and texted me.  Since it's going to be a bunch of casuals I was thinking that maybe we should all share one of our character with him since he doesn't have a chance to play XIII (unless he hops over to France...damn imagine not being able to play XIII), I figured he should get as much game time in.

Beshimi is the dart throwing specialist of the Oniwabanshu and by far the shortest of the team. He was defeated by Kenshin and later killed by Kanryu's Gatling gun. His head was buried in a mountain forest.

So today Gunny's gonna showup, I heard the Jaime and Giby are swinging on by as well.  I suppose it'll only be courteous to put some sort of win limit so that the newcomers can play each other as well (sorry Giby and Jaime, you guys fit in that category in though you shouldn't), we'll just give whoever hits the cap a quarter back as the new person sits in.

I had a blast on Friday guys, Thanks to Giby and Noctural for making it down and of course Gunsmith and Delphine (sp?) for making it all the way.  We definitely should have recorded some podcast of us just shooting the crap--it'll definitely make some entertaining session.  I thought it was extra funny that our significant others were banded together complaining how we when we're not at the arcades, we're either watching kof vids, or writing about kof hahaha.  Good times.

For the record Giby, when we said put a win limit so the newcomers could play more we didn't mean we were going to go easy hehe, no disrespect, we just wanted to make sure you guys got more playtime since we get to play all the time.

Fun time as always!

It was great hanging out with all of you guys again. I didn't get as many games in as I wanted, but that's fine. A video/podcast of the 'event' would have been awesome, but you know, some of it would have to be cut out :p

I got about 3-4 games in I think, I know 1 with Gunny, 1 with Abe, 1 with Oscar and one more, but I forgot against who. Liz's counter super took me by surprise, i didn't even know she had it.

The ladies seemed to have a lot of fun, especially when it came to bashing their men :o

About the Neo Geo collector I told you guys about. I can't find recent pics, but here they are before going into a special room http://www.neo-geo.com//gallery/collections/flo.html

Kane, I just misunderstood what I read, I saw it as "lets not go all out" and my mind said "NO"

What do we do about those pics we took? I don't mind them going up, but I don't want to throw any up if someone doesn't want their pic online. Send me the pics you guys took, and let me know if you guys want the one I have. I really want to see Gunny's, that one looked horrible :o

Hopefully Jaime and I can come down again sometime soon. Its always fun getting with you guys. Maybe if Japan Arcade/FFA gets 1.1 we can try to get together there once in a while since its between all of us.

And to quote Gunny: "anything said at AA, stays at AA" :D

I got to play most of everyone for the most part. I really need to practice just combos in general. I still learned a couple of things as I played. I also wanted to thank Oscar and Kane for the the hospitality, ride and food. That fried chicken was pretty good. We'll have to do it again soon. I'll see about getting there earlier next time to get more games in. GGs all.

But i had some problems with the mexicans.  sorry dont know your names but hoping i would probably catch them on this board.  Ive seen them go to ai before and some of them were cool some of them were not as cool.  Even before at ai sometimes i go play street fighter while i leave a coin up at ai they jack my shit now if its 1 and it was a mistake but seriously i left coins up there like 2-3 times on the same day and it gets robbed like candy.  

But when kane , meta, mr kof and etc sorry dont know all your names and giving some shout outs at the same time miss playing with you guys but yeah my coins never gets jacked when i kick it with you guys.

Now today they saw me at japan arcade this afternoon started staring at me and started laughing.  not sure if you guys were laughing at me?  i heard chino and some other random shit sorry dont know spanish so i cant really assume much.  you guys act like you guys never saw a chino play video games at an arcade before. If you guys did started laughing at me thats some fucked up shit.  Never really had good vibes hanging around with you guys when i just wanted to chill and play some kof.

Jacking coins is what we specialize at in NorCal. Hey, if it's been on the machine for 5 hours it's fair game isn't it? If only AE and KOF 13 weren't 50 cents we wouldn't have to stoop so low =/

i heard alex arcade is a small place from yelp lolz.  i was gonna make a trip either this weekend or next whenever you guys go.  i wanna check it out but i was wondering does it get packed like AI.  oh yeah and are the kof and sf cab setups on jap sticks or bat tops?
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: THE ANSWER on May 05, 2011, 07:24:38 PM
AA is small place and it does get packed specially since there's only one KOF cab. All the newer fighting games have Jap sticks and the older games (mvc2) have american sticks.

I'm in SoCal for this week, until next Monday the 16th, in the Orange County area (Irvine). I talked with The Answer some months back about possibly meeting up if anyone's interested. I play 02og/um and I can play 98 too. I don't play on stick...so I don't frequent arcades much. :(

Also I'm a big melty fan in case anyone here plays that. =D

Good session with 4leaf and Ash today, got a chance to really use Mai and for 4leaf to practice his top tiers on me.

4leaf you should pick up Kula, I think you would use her really well.

I live in Irvine, it's best to arrange for one of us to pick you up and drive you.  Most likely myself as I live and work here.  When are you coming?

It is a great way to help payout the bottom placers. But i don't think the the sign ups for 13 will drastically change due to the exclusiveness. If anything , i really do hope there will be at least 60+ entrants and have TOP 8 streamed if possible to bring interest through the eyes of KOF'ers and SF4 peeps.. The reason i say this is because alot of SF4 ppl do ask me about KOF 13 and ask about my thoughts comparing it SF4. I've seen  players from SF4(who're not scrubs) try and experience the game. I often tell them when they ask me "why am i good in SF4?" i tell them KOF has taught me alot of things as of using the best Escape options and also natural talent comes into place. You can even ask Metaphysics who play's SF4 and KOF13.Same thing with Reynald/Mr.Green/Deadlyduo who also plays SF4 too. I know and Believe that in SF4 it's anyone's game. In KOF once you're on top you'll stay on top. That is the DIFFERENCE between the two games. I can be set as an example as those two KOF players who won SBO playing SF4 last year without the use of tiers.I've been thinking for a week now and am really considering in retiring if SNK doesn't do something by EVO or the end of the year. I've cross trained both games and earned popularity in SF4 and gained mutual respect from TOP SF4 players. SnK is where i originated....will it be my resting tomb????


On to other news...sorry for the long write up....
Don't Get hit By my......
ASH CRIMSON STUN combo! *requires only two power bars and one drive! Thank* CMD duc as well!
Takuma - Shoot...just don't get  hit or grabbed!!
Iori* in training *lynch CMD Duc for helping me
Robert Garcia- found out other diferent variations/ Bringing it BACK!
Chin Gentsai - You can lynch Kane31 for my bootleg Combo's
Yuri sakazaki- Working on new flashy combos for you guys as well as GREEn
Terry Bogard- Trying my best to beat you with nice style and take all your blood!
Other than that Joe...did not make the line up.......He does well keeping the opponents down...it just wasn't enough style....

Let's hope SNK gets their shit together by the end of the year, we all know that SF4 is where the money is at and I am sure that if you would dedicate your self to it you would get signed as a PRO player eventually and make some money. However we really need a guy with your talent and dedication here, I personally feel like I've improved a lot in the last few weeks thanks to you since we've been playing a lot together and sharing ideas even thou we disagree sometimes lol.

AA is so G that everytime I play xiii there i feel there's a fight about to erupt behind me whenever they're playing MVC2 due to all the slamming of the controls, stools being knocked to the floor with shouts of "No Mames"along with Puto Madre!

Hell it was even more G when I see a dorky looking ASIAN dude playing MVC screaming No Mames LOL.

place is so hood that when CMD Duc (Ash) Struts in and leans with it...Guess what kicks he's sporting???? Clean ass Nike Cortez! right out the Box!

I would throw away my game to Duc ....Fuck that shit imma about to get shot playing 13 next to a guy who drives a series and wears those kicks...i don't want people to assume i'm affiliated with the underworld.

Place is so hood that we have  a guy who i believe may be Kane317 strolling into the arcade with some black ass bare feet.....Freaking that's how crazy he is....thats some RYU shit right there!!!

Then We have  Oscar the Answer who plays 13 screaming  Oh my god!!! WTF??!!! Raging  when dropping combos scaring SF4 players into thinking KOF is some dangerous shit to play!

Then there is MEtaphysics who seems nice and quiet who says he doesn't smoke....but after playing at AA he says he feels like it  after playing 13 with me.....I can't be the one to blame...blame AA~!!!

Then we have Reynald who makes these loud noises and makes delirious  wretched faces while playing 13...Hell even the Autistic kid who does the pop and lock moves becomes normal when he watches reynald play because he thinks Reynald will do the Dougie!

Then we have 4 leaf who eats his kit kat bars and believes he can beat me.....that's just crazy! AA is just too Gangsta!

Last but not least you've got me........AA is so gangta that this place scared me str8! I pick the lowest tier character possible in all games so i don't get dogged down. heck , when i play Pin Ball i only use the Left flipper only to show that it is my weaker side. I'm so scared i want ppl to call me by John in front of the gangsters instead of "KOF"  because i'm scared they don't know the the acronym for KOF and mistake me for a gang banger.

GGs yesterday guys, I wish I could've stayed longer but had to take care of business at home.

Hey John I think b.a.l.a found a way to use 4 characters in the game so he can defeat you lol!!!!!

Funniest thing happened yesterday, I was playing with John and he was using his TORTUGA Ash, I mean *Defensive* Ash and some of the MvC2 players watching started yelling "cheap" that's so "cheap" I didn't think anything of it but then Abe said something like "do you realize Marvel vs Capcom 2 players were calling John cheap" then I thought about about again and I started LMAO!!! They were probably thinking "Man I'll take a few infinites and unblockables any day over that shit" lol

Way to go John, thanks for making KOF 13 looking like the cheapest game ever =/

Hey, you know "I'm not John's biggest fan", and I actually resent playing John only coz I like to play other ppl occasionally, but this is coming from the LIZ, KULA and K' user?  O.o .  I thought you automatically lose your rights to complain about anyone else once you use those =)

Heh. =)

If anything, we should be complaining about the Takuma and Ash stun combos than the long juggles.

I know what you meant by you'd like to play other ppl too. But it'd be the same thing all over again if Reynald was around too while i'm not there =) In other news  Oscar doesn't know what a turtle is yet because he'll have to understand the struggle with his new team relying on Offense. The Answer may not win with his new Team Kyo , Mai , Andy due to the fact they don't have counters and cheap gimmicks LOL 1luv Oscar woot woot!

Also About the Takuma  Stun Combo they should make it a requirement to do Stand C into forward B into Flying just to make the combo work! Apparently don't do the  "Are you Japanese?" (inside joke between me and Reynald LOL)
About Ash's Stun combo, It's not easy to do....also if you do mess up a  combination during his green mode...the player would then have to Improvise/compensate by burning more meter to try to get the stun combo. The Day I see Kane317, The Answer,Romance, Reynald, CMD Duc, and 4leaf  Master the Stun combo  while performing it in a real match is when I truly stop playing 13. I just can't see it happening.

Urm.   Just coz I choose not to use certain characters that can do long combos, doesn't mean I can't do them (remember me doing '98 Takuma's Cross up D, d.B x n, d.A, f+A, DM or the Heavy D! one and you were like WTF?  )  Give me more credit than that.  You also know your "challenges" don't work on me like the Raiden one either.

Ash's stun combo is more challenging, but like more combos in kof, isn't too hard with practice--we're not talking about '97 Yamazaki infinite here.

Honestly it's hard to do even with a lot of practice just to do it once training mode. Now to even get it off in a real game is an accomplishment. I'd doubt any of us would be able to even do it 1/5 times if that was the only thing we tried/trained to do. I've never seen anyone do it in any of the match vids or even attempt them even though it's been known for a couple of months.

I've never seen anyone do it in any of the match vids or even attempt them even though it's been known for a couple of months.

I'm not disagreeing with how difficult it is, I don't even know what the combo is exactly but have seen it several times, at the same time I do know what it isn't (like hard ass stuff like '97 Yamazaki infinites etc...) but I have been wrong on occasions.

I do want to point out that the argument is somewhat moot since only you and John have been trying to do it, and it was like only for the last 3 weeks for John at least, and he's gotten in real matches, but we haven't been recording for awhile so of course it hasn't been in the videos.  

As for Japanese matches a) you have to factor in how many ppl use Ash and b) how many ppl are attempting the combo.  Like I said, I can't say for sure since I'm not studying that combo in particular but I don't recall seeing them drop many combos period, so maybe they just either don't know it or just like to do it.  Now if we see them trying to do it all the time and messing up, I think you made your point.

Trying to do something that's considered difficult in a real match is very risky and usually not worth the attempt. We don't need to see them fail a combo multiple times to make a point on how difficult it is to do. I'd actually be questioning their gameplay if that was the case.

Hello, my name is Sam. I frequent Alex's arcade since I live just up the street from it (I'm the guy with the glasses who is starting to learn KOF). And I was just wondering:

Does anyone know the scheduling of when people show up and play KOFXIII? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I am assuming that weekends are empty?

I usually show up on weekdays (mainly on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but other days depending) from 3:30 till probably closing. Thanks for any incoming replies I appreciate it.

Hey John don't you think you are letting this get to your head my friend? Making this challenges to Kane317, Ash, Reynald My self and the rest of the Cali-Mexicans when you know really well that none of us will have the time practice at the moment. I know you mean no disrespect but sometimes you just need to be a little humble specially in a forum since people are reading and they might get a different idea. I want to think that this is your way to encourage us to get better but believe us man we are trying =) I'm pretty sure that you are starving for a strong opponent to test your full potential and unfortunately we are unable to deliver at the moment but once console comes out I'm sure we'll all get better, specially the Cali-Mexicans and actually I have a feeling that they will be your true opponents. I personally like that you are active in the forum just take it easy my friend ;).

Also, it sucks how this sticks situations at Japan arcade turned out. Specially how they are going to charge .50 cents now, personally I would be upset. Yoshi if you guys really want, I can get you a KOF XIII system for $2000 and I'll show you how to hook it up at home.

Like i said before when i meant the situation of getting it down in a match isn't saying you guys don't know combos. I know Team Infinity can perform combos well. I was merely saying getting that Ash combo down is hard to get due to the fact it's dropped often because there is never a time you guys just let me do it. At the same time Ash only has corner combos, so it's harder for a person to create that opening due to the fact that the opponent is knowing' to put up a bigger barrier on defense when they're in the Danger Zone *middle* screen. Any by challenges* it's not the I challenge you to a match thing. It's more of me saying i want you wear my shoes and trying to see it in my view. It had nothing of questioning of anyones ability to do combos. Oscar i will admit i can't do the Elizabeth combo double super like you  :) I will admit Kane317 chin in general will be better than anyone because he understands him inside and out. CMD duc knows more about Iori than anyone else. And cali -mexicans are very fun to play with along with everyone else at AA. I NEVER said you guys weren't  good competition.  We're more than just fellow KOF friends. I'd like for all of us to become really close outside of KOF.  Hell i want to get beers with you guys instead of playing KOF! I'd like to say something too about being humble. I am not as dedicated as The Answer who helps/tries to promote KOF and Kane317 who also put effort in taking time to make Videos as well for the community.And to Dark Geese who puts in effort in posting KOF videos. All i've done is played the game until you guys talked about me without me knowing anything about Forums and such. I would never mean to harm any of you on here. So, For the record I believe we're all in it as a WHOLE! Forgive me if anyone has any misunderstandings. To all my friends..you guys are "Mi Carnal"!!!

I think what Oscar is saying is Daigo and Tokido are hugely respected not coz they're one of the best in SFIVAE (I don't follow the scene but I hear there are a few better than them over in Japan that don't come to EVO etc...) but coz they're also very humble. I hear nobody really likes Kula in Mexico unless they're united to play for the country etc...(we don't doubt his talent either).

Of course you're not as bad as them, I'm just making a point.

Because I do know the combo and when he trying to go for it, I can see how many times its dropped, which is a lot more than you think. Even though we're the only two who play Ash, I believe I can make a more educated guess than you.

Welcome to Dreamcancel Sam and glad you got a chance to register since we see you at AA from time to time.  As for what days we go it really varies.  For the most part you can see Ash (CMD.Duc)M-Th from 5pm ish-8pm, Mr Kof/John goes there almost daily, and the rest is really random.  I personally try to make it once or twice week but I usually only stay 1h-2hrs.  The name's Yuhang and I'm the Chin user btw.

I was referring more to the point of not-in-videos=therefore-it's-probably-a-hard-combo point.

As for John dropping the Ash combo--I don't know the meat and potatoes but I know how it starts, and more importantly I know how it ends (stuns); that's not hard to see, and he's always going for it recently.  You do, however, know the combo better than us no doubt.

I reiterate, I'm not saying the combo is easy, I'm merely stating that whether it's in a video doesn't really mean anything.

Well, guys... it looks like due to personal stuff I have going on, I won't be able to make it out to AA before I move back up to NorCal this Thursday. I just wanted to say that you guys are all part of an amazing group of players, who are not only good at the game, but overall just a bunch of fun guys to hang out with. Though I didn't get to play or train as much as I would have liked to, I enjoyed each and every game.

Kane: The man who started it off. I remember meeting you at AI the first day I tried the game. You told me about DC and we played a few games. From there you introduced me to the rest of the guys and kept me informed about tournaments and just what was going on in general, so I really appreciate it. Taught me a lot about some of the little things about the game and we would often about things during downtime between matches. Tons of respect to you for being an honest and down to earth guy, Yuhang.

Mr. KOF: We actually played a few times at AI before anybody explained to me who you were. I remember just thinking, "Who is this guy beasting on everyone? And why does he play SSF4?!" I was under the impression that SF was your main series, because the nights I went initially, I would always see you owning it up with Juri and only occasionally toss up a token for XIII. I really admire that regardless of what people say or think of you, you play how you want to: WITH STYLE. If you end up retiring from KOF in the near future, I'm glad to have experienced some of your epic beatdowns.

Ash: I remember the first time we played at AI you came in at like 10pm or so, and I had been there since opening but no one had showed up all day. I was actually planning to leave, but since someone (you) finally showed up, I figured I might as well stay and make the most of it. I remember the matches being the most memorable we had even though it was pretty early on in my experience with XIII. I remember going on the boards the next day and saying I played some Asian dude who plays Iori, with Yuhang replying "it's probably Duc" or something like that lol. Thanks again for providing all the technical support lately. I know it goes on behind the scenes and a lot of people don't recognize it, but it really is appreciated. Lastly, I AM NOT BAD LUCK! LOL

Metaphysics: Good ol' honest Abe. Mexican/scientist with a French last name. Crazy. We had some good matches and good talks. Still surprised how well you adapted and performed during tourneys coming out of the SF scene and not having any experience with SNK games. I hope you stick with it, Big ups to the drive too. Your drives were a bit farther than any of the regulars, including mine, so respect to that and R.I.P. gas money lol.

Answer: I actually thought you always used to hella mug me when I would come to AI, but you turned out to be a pretty friendly guy lol. Thanks for working with Giby during events to get things done and pushing for the board after AI closed down. Otherwise we'd have to go to Vid94 (and you thought AA was ghetto lol). Also, gratitude and respect for hosting at your home. I know a lot of people don't feel comfortable about that so to know that you were willing to do that for all of us at a moments notice was pretty cool. Best of luck with your job and everything. You know how hard times can be.

Reynald: You're a pretty quiet dude, so we hardly ever talked, but you were always fun to play against. Don't break that Duo mechanic you and John got goin' on. Mad respect for protecting your girlfriend from Japan LOL

4leaf: Dude, I swear you were never around or you always had to go somewhere lol Was good getting some games in and i liked to watch when you played Leona since Yuhang stopped using her *cough*. Funny that the thing I remember from you the most was the conversation about Shen's far C to Kunio over dinner hahahaha

CaliMexicans: I will write about them as a whole since I didn't get to talk to them much, personally. The fact that they would show up, be as good as they were and as friendly as they were garners them respect from me. Whether it was showing up or leaving, they would always give a handshake or a nod even if they didn't feel comfortable speaking to me. Always fun to watch and play against. Special mention to Romance for playing those MvC3 matches at AI before they closed and shaking my hand lol GGs and for sticking with King even though no one else really bothered with her.

Random others: Thanks for the GGs. The SNK community is full of characters.

Just my way of saying thanks and acknowledging those of you who welcomed me into the SoCal scene, whether it was by words or matches or just being able to watch you play. You guys are all stand-up dudes and I hope to throw down again when I come to SoCal for visits. I'll still be on the boards, posting about things I obviously don't know anything about lol, so i won't be disappearing anytime soon. Until then, let me know if any of you are ever in NorCal and we'll hit up some good food joints!

P.S. If I'm forgetting anybody, my bad, just remind me lol

I move back up to NorCal this Thursday. I just wanted to say that you guys are all part of an amazing group of players, who are not only good at the game, but overall just a bunch of fun guys to hang out with. Though I didn't get to play or train as much as I would have liked to, I enjoyed each and every game.

Damn time flies, you're already moving back up?  What about ReveLAtions and EVO (at least EVO right)?!?

It's great to get a chance to play all these months Ivan and I know you'll help build that scene well in NorCal.  I'm just glad you actually stuck with it when I introduced you to DC and actually kept on playing and kept on posting.  You're a funny guy to kick it with and your stories are hilarious as hell and I'm sure we'll be playing each a lot in the future whether we drive up or you drive down.

It sucks that Ivan will be leaving us momentarily. But i look forward to the day on your visits back so we can all gets some games in or vist a bar. Either way we should all hang out when you do decide to come down again. I know we didn't get to talk to much or didn't get enough games in together. But i know you'll bring the love with you to North Cal. You've got plenty of war stories to tell in North Cal. Hold it down for us and wishing you ever lasting luck friend.

Welcome to Dreamcancel Sam and glad you got a chance to register since we see you at AA from time to time.  As for what days we go it really varies.  For the most part you can see Ash (CMD.Duc)M-Th from 5pm ish-8pm, Mr Kof/John goes there almost daily, and the rest is really random.  I personally try to make it once or twice week but I usually only stay 1h-2hrs.  The name's Yuhang and I'm the Chin user btw.

Thanks for the heads up man, I appreciate it very much! As a big fighting game fan, I really want to learn and enjoy this game! :)

Were you the guy yesterday that wore the white shirt and sunglasses that played an "extremely" good Benimaru? (I know you use Chin, but your Benimaru was, like I said, "extremely" good as well?) I was the asian guy that came in the afternoon with glasses wearing a black shirt and jeans and was using a team of Iori, Leona, and Shen. I can remember Duc using a team of Shen, Ash, and Iori. Sorry if I creeped both of you guys out by sitting and analyzing your matches for a complete 25 minutes before playing. lol

GGS to both of you, even though I'm barely starting out with my team of Iori, Leona, and Shen, I find these characters really fun but hard as hell to learn. Sorry for repeating this. (By the way, I'm dropping Mai for now since I have trouble figuring her out, although I do hear that she is a very basic character to learn.)

And to Duc, that Iori regular command grab that connected on Ash's Neomax (I think) was epic, even though I couldn't capitalize on that moment with a super. :( But I'll be sure to try harder next time. ;)

Sorry for the long post.

Trying to do something that's considered difficult in a real match is very risky and usually not worth the attempt. We don't need to see them fail a combo multiple times to make a point on how difficult it is to do. I'd actually be questioning their gameplay if that was the case.

I'm just saying it's hard to validate how hard a combo is just coz you don't see it; there's tons of combos that aren't displayed but it doesn't mean it's hard or easy either.  You just can't draw conclusions from that alone.  Once again, I'm not saying the Ash stun combo is simple.

Because I do know the combo and when he trying to go for it, I can see how many times its dropped, which is a lot more than you think. Even though we're the only two who play Ash, I believe I can make a more educated guess than you.

I was referring more to the point of not-in-videos=therefore-it's-probably-a-hard-combo point.

As for John dropping the Ash combo--I don't know the meat and potatoes but I know how it starts, and more importantly I know how it ends (stuns); that's not hard to see, and he's always going for it recently.  You do, however, know the combo better than us no doubt.

I reiterate, I'm not saying the combo is easy, I'm merely stating that whether it's in a video doesn't really mean anything.

I think a good estimate of the time I've watched John play, he gets that stun combo off about 30% of the time he attempts it. I'd gladly have him try that every time instead of his regular HD combo that works 90%+ of the time.

Well, guys... it looks like due to personal stuff I have going on, I won't be able to make it out to AA before I move back up to NorCal this Thursday. I just wanted to say that you guys are all part of an amazing group of players, who are not only good at the game, but overall just a bunch of fun guys to hang out with. Though I didn't get to play or train as much as I would have liked to, I enjoyed each and every game.

Kane: The man who started it off. I remember meeting you at AI the first day I tried the game. You told me about DC and we played a few games. From there you introduced me to the rest of the guys and kept me informed about tournaments and just what was going on in general, so I really appreciate it. Taught me a lot about some of the little things about the game and we would often about things during downtime between matches. Tons of respect to you for being an honest and down to earth guy, Yuhang.

Mr. KOF: We actually played a few times at AI before anybody explained to me who you were. I remember just thinking, "Who is this guy beasting on everyone? And why does he play SSF4?!" I was under the impression that SF was your main series, because the nights I went initially, I would always see you owning it up with Juri and only occasionally toss up a token for XIII. I really admire that regardless of what people say or think of you, you play how you want to: WITH STYLE. If you end up retiring from KOF in the near future, I'm glad to have experienced some of your epic beatdowns.

Ash: I remember the first time we played at AI you came in at like 10pm or so, and I had been there since opening but no one had showed up all day. I was actually planning to leave, but since someone (you) finally showed up, I figured I might as well stay and make the most of it. I remember the matches being the most memorable we had even though it was pretty early on in my experience with XIII. I remember going on the boards the next day and saying I played some Asian dude who plays Iori, with Yuhang replying "it's probably Duc" or something like that lol. Thanks again for providing all the technical support lately. I know it goes on behind the scenes and a lot of people don't recognize it, but it really is appreciated. Lastly, I AM NOT BAD LUCK! LOL

Metaphysics: Good ol' honest Abe. Mexican/scientist with a French last name. Crazy. We had some good matches and good talks. Still surprised how well you adapted and performed during tourneys coming out of the SF scene and not having any experience with SNK games. I hope you stick with it, Big ups to the drive too. Your drives were a bit farther than any of the regulars, including mine, so respect to that and R.I.P. gas money lol.

Answer: I actually thought you always used to hella mug me when I would come to AI, but you turned out to be a pretty friendly guy lol.

He must just get more nervous playing you or something coz he gets it off on me quite frequently (most of the time you're not there we he's doing it on me which would probably explain the discrepancy in our numbers).  Come to think of it, he just gets combos off of me all the time lol.

Well then I guess it's Oscar and I that are special and he chokes when he plays you.  I could check with RJ (and I know Ricardo for sure gets hit by it a lot) to see if he gets hit by it.  A lot of times you're not around when we play.

EDIT: Question, does John always go into HD to do the Stun?  I know in the Ash thread (http://dreamcancel.com/forum/index.php?topic=280.msg15859#msg15859), I linked a combo (dunno if a variant but I think it is compared to John's one) that doesn't require you to go into HD, so just 2 stocks and 60% drive necessary to start it up.

Hmm so I can't count now =(.  All joking aside, it doesn't really matter since if you get hit enough by it, it's still a stun combo at a low requirement (the one I saw was 60% drive, 2 stocks and doesn't require you to go into HD like I remember John needing to do), but of course, it's a challenging, but still practical, corner combo.

Lower requirement in meter usage, high requirement in execution. As said before I'd still rather get hit by the stun combo 20-30% of the time than a 70-80% combo 90% of the time.

I suppose it's preference, but I personally get hit by the 70-80% combo than the full stun one.  Even though according to you the Stun combo is less frequent, at least I have a survival chance if I get hit by the 70-80% combo for a comeback.

Just out of curiousity, what's the hardest part of the stun combo anyways (It's a genuine question and I'm not trying to be cocky)?  I know John does some dash b.D, HD, dash b.D which is a little bit tricky, but the new one doesn't require that.

Well if you figure the combo is dropped 70-80% of the time, you can say the same thing about survival for a comeback, except with more health.

There are multiple parts of the combo that's difficult, which is why it's dropped so often. Largest barrier would be near the beginning there two parts which require near perfect timing.

After the EX b~f+BD, you have to do b~f+C with no gap, if there is then they will drop out of the next time you do b~f+C.

After the first b~f+C, you have to do b+D with no gap, if there is, the next move will whiff.

After the b+D, you have a do a perfect walking b~f+C. If you do it even a couple of frames late, they'll drop to the ground.

After that, you have to do a b+D with little to no gap, otherwise the next move (dashing ABCD) will whiff due to the opponent falling to the ground.

There are two other points in the combo which require you to do walking b~f+C

Other than this, learning to do most of the cancels for Ash takes about 3 weeks time, whereas most combos take a day or two max.

Another thing is that there are so many inputs (30+) during the whole combo, there is a higher chance to mess up at any point.

You can't Stun someone using an HD combo IRC. It's not that i'm nervous, it's just that most of the time i'm trying not to hit the opponent from the very start of  the round and get them near the corner just to try and create the combo opportunity. I should just go for a easier longer link setup than just having to focus on performing the 100 percent combo. So it's thursday guys....Reynald will be there along with I.

GGS, to everyone I played at Alex's Arcade tonight (even though I was basically "free" the whole day and my skill level was not on par with everyone else's).  I apologize that I didn't play much more, later into the night. It was great to observe high level play. Not only that, but it was also nice seeing members of this forum in person and getting to know them better. Hopefully we can do it again next Thursday. GGS!  ;)

Well if you figure the combo is dropped 70-80% of the time, you can say the same thing about survival for a comeback, except with more health.

Yeah but when completed, one you die after it's done, but one you have a chance.  I guess we agree to disagree so it's just a preference kinda thing.

There are two other points in the combo which require you to do walking b~f+C

I guess everyone finds different things challenging like I find DL's rekkas lol.  It's just practice, I got that walking Ventose in one session of training mode.

Other than this, learning to do most of the cancels for Ash takes about 3 weeks time, whereas most combos take a day or two max.

3 weeks hmm...I hope I don't take that long to learn those cancels.

Some of the stuff you listed would apply to any juggle combo (like leaving too much gap would make the next hit whiff) so I dunno about those arguments.  

After tonight and watching the combo John attempts, the aforementioned one earlier seems easier but of course I don't know.  For the record, I never seen John miss so much period--Oscar joked like he's doing it on purpose or something haha.  When I just play him 1 on 1, he gets it off on me a lot more than tonight so I dunno--maybe we all can't count and maybe we're all lying about our stats, it's all perspective right?

Ultimately, I'm just going to have to return to this topic when I use him myself and I'm ok with being wrong as I have been in the past. =)

GG's last night. I think i've found a way to an alternate combo making a fourth possible stun combo with only 2 meters and 60 drive. I'll find out later today  ;)
You've got to understand i never drop combos....It's the Reset i go for hehehe. I would say it would take three weeks to performing all the combos to its fullest potential.

@ ESB : Don't worry, just have fun and remember losing is a learning process :)

@ Oscar: Yeah the video may describe how Reynald and I look when getting ready for big
HD combos. You missed out at night because I seriously thought the Autistic kid was playing 13 due to the fact Reynald was popping and making some noise. Heck, Even CMD Duc was jumping up and down trying to cause an earthquake when i was doing the Combo  LOL

@ Yuhang : Liked how you felt accomplished landing the duolon EX air strike on Reynald! Just remember you can't poke someone from your wake up =P

@Abe: Remember to e fully energized or drink your juice b4 playing =P

@Duc: I suggest you ask me a history question other than a geographical one. I can play Jeopardy and KOF 13 at the same time woot woot!

@Reynald: Even with the long line...Raiden *face palm* JK pretty fun matches still.

In our current state if we can't do HD combos consistently (90%+) in real matches, we'll be unable to do that Ash combo even with a lot practice (this includes me).

Also 3 weeks I considered is fast learning, unless of course it's on console. It would take even longer if there's no one to point out how to do certain parts of it, but only having seen the combo and have the combo in writing.

Which combo juggles can you give as an example that has the strictness or 1 or 2 frames, non-canceled that require a more difficult motion besides just doing motion for the move?

Actually I can count just fine. I count the number of times he drops his combo every time I go there. Yesterday was a larger amount than I normal. I think I asked Abe and he said he didn't see it happen the whole night.

Walking b~f+C is easy and anyone can do it by itself. I think I've already told you before it's completely different trying to do it in a combo because it because significantly harder. Especially in the part of the combo I described previously.

I'm fairly certain you'll come back and say it's a lot harder than you thought.

@ Yuhang : Liked how you felt accomplished landing the duolon EX air strike on Reynald! Just remember you can't poke someone from your wake up =P

I dunno if you know the back story behind it.  For some reason, only against Reynald, whenever I connect a j.CD my Ex air.f+AC misses.  He was actually the one that pointed out to me that he's only see it miss against him and he laughed about it.  Since then, it's bugged me every time it misses (and I think it happened once more or even twice after that too--only against him).

I suppose it depends on how much you play in 3 weeks.  John's 3 weeks of gameplay is a lot different from mine or Abe's.  If I had the machine to myself, I aim to learn it in 4 hours tops, and I'm overshooting it.

Which combo juggles can you give as an example that has the strictness or 1 or 2 frames, non-canceled that require a more difficult motion besides just doing motion for the move?

1 or 2 frames or .2 or .4 milliseconds is relatively the same in context.  You snooze you lose.  I'm assuming it's not like Shen's XII 1-frame cancels, but most characters if you pause/delay for more time than you should, you'll miss. I had to re-read what you said a couple of times but I'm assuming you're referring to the walk fireball, so if you're not then forgive me: All you have to do is to reprogram your timing to so that c.b~f+C, you press the C slightly later, this is the new "motion" for the move.  Then you factor in the tight window so you just have to time it earlier.  

Actually I can count just fine. I count the number of times he drops his combo every time I go there. Yesterday was a larger amount than I normal. I think I asked Abe and he said he didn't see it happen the whole night.

What we're getting at is that you're basically saying we can't count, especially when we're asking for the benefit of the doubt since we get hit by it a lot when you're not there.  Insult our intelligence all you want, we can only ask you to believe that we do get hit by it often enough to make a fuss about it.

Walking b~f+C is easy and anyone can do it by itself. I think I've already told you before it's completely different trying to do it in a combo because it because significantly harder. Especially in the part of the combo I described previously.

I do remember our conversation, and I cannot add any input until I attempt it in a combo so we'll revisit this point at a later date.  All I can attest to is the execution difficulty outside of a combo for now.

I'm fairly certain you'll come back and say it's a lot harder than you thought.

I might just do so, but I suppose we're arguing the wrong points since the underlying question really is:  Should they remove the stun combo for Takuma, Ash, Kula or is it just too difficult and too impractical to do in a real game and they should just leave it in.

Let's examine some old infinites like Kim's corner air stomp combo or Yamazaki's sandkick infinite.  Let's say we feel that it's super hard and we really don't care about getting hit by it since it's so impractical.  Let's say John practices and he gets it off more than 50% of the time on several ppl.  The million dollar question is: At one point is enough is enough?  How many times do you have to get hit by something "broken", for a lack of a better term, before they should change it?

I don't have problems with 100% combos, I think it's give and take.  If you feel like saving up all round long for a HD 4-5stock 100% combo, then the more power to you.  Chances are, you're not going to use much meter the other 3-4 rounds if you want to go that route.  With the stun combos of course, you can have lower requirements like 2 drives 30% stock for Takuma, or 60%drive 2 stocks for Ash.  Which means that the chances of them pulling it off more than one time in a match is significantly higher than trying to save up for 4-5 stocks plus HD.   Not to mention that you're gaining stock while doing the combos (Takuma's case being the most ridiculous).

Post by: Ash on June 03, 2011, 10:36:26 PM
First of all I am not insulting the intelligence or you other others by saying you can't count. What I am saying here is that you guys do not play Ash, therefore lack the character knowledge of knowing when he does try for it and messes it up. Simply put I'm telling you guys that if you haven't tried it, you shouldn't say it's as hard as I think it is. If you tell me about a character you play and I don't how difficult a combo is, I will take your word for it.

In regards to you and RJ getting hit by it a lot, I never said you guys didn't. I said he gets it off 20-30% of the time and that does not equate to you two getting hit by it a lot. What I did mean is that overall against all opponents, he'll get the combo off that often. It could be that when it did happen, he was in practice mode before playing you two, or just had better than normal execution.

Ok well let's just ignore the fact that it's a stun combo and take it as a 100% combo instead. It requires 2 meter and 60% drive gauge, as opposed to other characters who need 4 meter and 100% drive gauge. Yes there's an advantage, of 2 meter and 40% drive, but it does still require some saving and use of meter. As for the point about them gaining meter while doing the combo, we'll attribute that to saying that the requirements of the 100% combo is lower.

So we should compare the difference of damage of what Ash can do with 2 meter and 60% drive gauge versus other characters what damage other characters can do with the same resource. I think most characters can output about 50-60% damage with that, with a difference of an additional 40-50% Ash can do.

So is 40-50% damage justify the difficulty? That's debatable depending on how difficult a person thinks it is. Many games have BnB mid damage combos and higher damaging combos which scales with difficulty to do so - that's normal. I think in this case it's borderline since I do play Ash and know the difficult of not just being able to do it, but doing it in a real match.

You guys do go to the arcade more often now since it's down in OC now. So there's easy access to try it out. I would go as far as making a wager of $50 to anyone besides John (maybe Reynald) wouldn't be able to do the first 10 inputs of the combo 7/10 times in practice mode (not against a backward opponent) within the next month or two. The whole combo has 30+ inputs, but for this I'd only require the first 10 hits which is up to ABCD.

Edit: Do you remember when we saw the Kim corner step infinite? It looked easy, but when we tried it, it was insanely hard. Ash's combo isn't at that difficulty, but it is indeed a lot harder than it looks.

I think Johns have been dropping the combo on purpose or gets nervous when Duc is there cause like I said I've played with him a lot last week and he was getting the combos 90% of the time.

I agree with Yuhang that Ash and Takuma shit is bullshit and stupid. The takuma shit is so easy even Ricardo who goes once a week can do the full stun combo.

CMD Duc, would you say that the Ash combo is as hard as Whips 02 corner combo (the long one) or 02 Angels infinite?

Ricardo told me he goes 3 times a week. He can do the Takuma combo which is easier than Ash's and require less meter, but messes up somewhat often. And yeah Takuma's combo is a bit much and should be toned down.

For the combos in 2k2, I wouldn't be able to say since I haven't tried those. Those combos though involve quicker inputs, so it's a bit different. I would say that if someone can do those combos, they can do Ash's with practice of course. Although we all may be able to do difficult combos, it's another thing to get them down with consistency. I'm sure we all can do Ash's combo with enough practice, but not with high consistency.

If you tell me about a character you play and I don't how difficult a combo is, I will take your word for it.

Yes and no.  There are combos that I found real hard, and then we other ppl tried it they found it easy.  For the most part I do have a better understanding of Chin's combo and which ones I find hard, but it doesn't means everyone finds it hard too.  Having said that, I will give you the benefit of the doubt and believe you it's a challenging combo, but I did want to make that clarification.

I also do know how many times he's successfully stunned me, and again, it's enough make me feel it's worth engaging in this long civilized (thank you) debate we've been having--apparently others feel the same way I do too.  I pointed out this in my last post, ("Just how many times do you have to get hit by something "overpowered/broken", no matter difficult, before it's necessary to change it?"  If you get hit by it enough it's clearly feasible in a real match, and hence practical enough for an debate IMO.)

In regards to you and RJ getting hit by it a lot, I never said you guys didn't. I said he gets it off 20-30% of the time and that does not equate to you two getting hit by it a lot. What I did mean is that overall against all opponents, he'll get the combo off that often. It could be that when it did happen, he was in practice mode before playing you two, or just had better than normal execution.

Once again, see the last post.   We get hit by it enough to feel that this is necessary to discuss this.

Ok well let's just ignore the fact that it's a stun combo and take it as a 100% combo instead. It requires 2 meter and 60% drive gauge, as opposed to other characters who need 4 meter and 100% drive gauge. Yes there's an advantage, of 2 meter and 40% drive, but it does still require some saving and use of meter. As for the point about them gaining meter while doing the combo, we'll attribute that to saying that the requirements of the 100% combo is lower.

So we should compare the difference of damage of what Ash can do with 2 meter and 60% drive gauge versus other characters what damage other characters can do with the same resource. I think most characters can output about 50-60% damage with that, with a difference of an additional 40-50% Ash can do.

So is 40-50% damage justify the difficulty? That's debatable depending on how difficult a person thinks it is. Many games have BnB mid damage combos and higher damaging combos which scales with difficulty to do so - that's normal. I think in this case it's borderline since I do play Ash and know the difficult of not just being able to do it, but doing it in a real match.

I think, that's just it, the lower starting point is a HUGE difference.  The main difference is it's almost impossible, on a normal timer, to build 4/5 stocks + 100% drive in the first round (with the majority of the characters requiring 5 stocks+HD) whereas it's definitely plausible to build 2 meters 60% drive the first round.  The starting points are hugely different to the point where an aggressive player who builds up meter more, could essentially do two stun combos on players 1 and 3 of an opponent in an extreme case, particularly Takuma.  Most of the 4/5stock full HD combos are seen on the 5th round more times than not; the stun combos, however, can be execute at a much earlier point in a match.

Remember the difference between a 99% combo and an 100% combo is not just 1%.  A 100% combo leaves NO chance for a combo; a 99% combo could leave the opponent with a chance to comeback no matter how slim.  I think if someone wants to save up 5 rounds just to get a 5 stock +HD 100% off of someone, it's justified coz they have to sacrifice a lot more during the other 4.  The stun combo requires a lot less sacrifice for the same amount of damage (and once again a positive gain in Takuma's case), the principle of the stun combo is in itself, ridiculous.  Make them require 5 stock+HD, or 4 stock +HD to stun someone and it's still unfair since you build meter during the combo.  2 stocks and some drive is a little over-doing it if you ask my humble opinion.

You guys do go to the arcade more often now since it's down in OC now. So there's easy access to try it out. I would go as far as making a wager of $50 to anyone besides John (maybe Reynald) wouldn't be able to do the first 10 inputs of the combo 7/10 times in practice mode (not against a backward opponent) within the next month or two.

Edit: Do you remember when we saw the Kim corner step infinite? It looked easy, but when we tried it, it was insanely hard. Ash's combo isn't at that difficulty, but it is indeed a lot harder than it looks.

I thought we're not arguing difficulty anymore, I already said I can't debate that till try it myself.  The real debate is whether or not it should still be there in the first place.

As for living closer is really moot if my availability isn't as flexible as yours as other people.  

Let's say you're right, and it's deathly impossible to do.  Yet I've gotten hit by it, say 10 times in the last few weeks.  It still doesn't change the fact that it's a 100% combo that requires 2 stocks and 60% drive to start (or 2 drives but 30% stock for Takauma).   Since you're gaining meter back Takuma's really a negative 1 stock 2 drive combo (I don't remember how much drive he gains back).  That's clearly an unfair advantage that he has.

With the same token Ash's stun combo that I listed (I'm unfamiliar with the variation John and you use) takes 60% drive and 2 stock; the whole combo requires 5 stocks, but you gain 3 stocks back.

To put thing is perspective, let's say I have a special like O.Shermie's HSDM lightning, that requires 2 stocks and 60% drive to do, and let's say we use your 30% success rate, if it did 100% damage if it connects, even with a 30% success rate, would it be fair?  Remember, 2 stocks and 60% drive requirement only.
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: Ash on June 04, 2011, 12:43:31 AM
Ok, so basically the summary of the issue is this:

1 - 100% combo is ok if using saving up 4-5 power meter and 100% drive if difficulty is low/medium.
2 - 100% combo is not ok if saving up 2 power meter and 60% drive if difficulty is high.

We both agree on 1, but not 2 for various reasons. I can leave the issue at rest if this is the case.

About the Orochi Shermie thing that would actually be very funny and wouldn't mind if it happened on a first or second character. On the 3rd character, I'd probably have to start praying. But seriously, that involves just activating move, where as a long difficult combo is the enjoyment of getting everything executed correctly and benefiting from large amounts of practice.

One thing I've learned is it doesn't matter how difficult a combo is but if it's worth it a relatively usable in a match people will master it and abuse it. I remember the first time I saw Angeles infinite in Mexico and and people were saying yeah it's good but it's not practical cause its too difficult fast forward 2-3 years later every top player in Mexico was doing it, now days it's a minimum requirement if you wanna use Angel in Mexico. Just look at what happened to Hummer he went to Mexico with he's semi-decent Angel and not able to do the infinite at least 70% of the time and he got his ass handed to him.

In 13 acquiring 2 meters and 1 drive in round is not hard specially if his in 2nd position thus giving Ash a really good chance to do this ridiculous combo.

Actually 2k2 is a different game where there were not many mid/easy 100% combos. KOF XIII has quite a bit of them if you have the meter for it. Angel doesn't not require any meter to do that infinite (if she messes up, she can just try again immediately). Ash does require some meter, so he can't just do it anytime but but with lesser requirements than other 100%s in XIII. At most you'll only see Ash do it once per match. Since there are plenty of 100% combos in XIII, see what I wrote in the above post. Doing 100% damage in a combo itself is not ridiculous, it's whether or not you agree on #2.

I agree on 1. and 2. as long as you supplement 2. with builds meter while doing the combo where 1. does not allow for any meter building.  I think that's a huge advantage, and although Takuma leaves you with more than say Ash or Kula after the combo, it's just plain wrong by principle alone if you ask me.  

A 5 stock HD is a hail-Mary-all-out-attack.  It leaves you with no meter for a reason, and it doesn't allow you to build for a reason, but the stun combo "breaks" this rule.

But what Oscar is talking about is the level of execution in Mexico is higher, it's custom standard to be able to do these comboes like he is saying. Dropping comboes in Mexico=DEATH. If you get the chance to land a death combo, you better land it, or you basically lose. That's what Oscar is saying, so dropping comboes against higher level execution players like in Mexico only means you lose.

So basically he and I are saying you guys need to raise your standards for execution if you wish to compete on an international level in the future (once everyone gains access to the console version etc).

I would say you have to be able to do a combo probably 85%-90% of the time in Mexico regardless of the level of difficulty to be able to compete in Mexico.

For example, Duo Lon's in Mexico in KOFXI high level execution is also standard, you cannot be dropping your comboes at all, or it means certain death. You simply won't get many chances to land the comboes so you cannot drop them because they all know how to land them with a 85-90% accuracy rate.

So basically you guys need to raise your standards for execution if you wish to compete on an international level in the future.

I would say you have to be able to do a combo probably 85%-90% in Mexico regardless of the level of difficulty to be able to compete in Mexico.

And Mexico needs to move on from older games to compete on an International level =)

But the thing is they are-

They already play:
98UM
2002 UM
KOFXI

and 13 is catching like wildfire down South and it is in high demand for Northern Mexico as I get asked about it all the time.

So it is a matter of time before you see people in Mexico doing these comboes you guys say with little to no difficulty...

You can take my word on that.

Also Mexico vs. Peru is of high importance because it will be the Retiring Grounds for KOF 2002 in Mexico. (All that will be left will be taking Kula and a few to Japan/Taiwan etc)

I don't doubt it for one second that Mexico will catch up, but till then it's catch up is what they're playing.  

Japan has the highest concentration of high level XIII players, the current iteration; so we need to all play catch up with them.

In all fairness, you don't see me going on and on about ppl need to catch up to Chinese player '98 players either, right?

That is true. I find it fascinating the highest level of concentration of different games can be found all over the world, so you will see me in China soon just to improve my 98 game..

I say there is no one area people need to "catch up" to, because there is skill all over the world.

Wait a minute now that I see DG post I can see what the dilema is here. My standards for the difficulty of combos is higher than Duc's and that's where we are clashing. Yuhang, DG and my self have seen first hand what the level of execution is outside of the US and I think that's why execution is not even a factor in this.

This is precisely the point. Those that have travelled outside of the USA to KOF strongpoints have seen that standards for the difficulty of comboes in other parts of the world is much much higher than what it is here in the USA.

As we can attest to, there are many people of Mr. KOF's level of play all over the world.

There are about 40-50 of them in Mexico alone, and I am sure there are a similar amount in China, Japan and other KOF hotspots such as Peru, Brazil, etc.

So if you have that many people of Mr. KOF's skill and execution, obviously then the level of execution has to go up exponentially, thus meaning anything less than 85-90% perfection simply will not suffice.

The U.S. may not have many Mr.KOF's. But in the End only one person is needed to represent a country. Execution has nothing to do with a country's play level. It just takes talent and practice. So please, let's stop talking about Mexico or "Level"  because last time i checked i haven't seen a Spanish person win SBO for KOF. Technically we're in the same boat  ;) I don't know if Hummer, Bata,No.17 really did lose to great players or to other factors. I'm just saying my experience in 2k9 at NDP wasn't so pleasant as well. Only the people that were there know what i'm talking about, and i'm talking about atmosphere and conditions. I mean i think it's hard to get a Hispanic person's respect in the KOF world.
Title: Re: SoCal KoF
Post by: Dark Geese on June 04, 2011, 04:08:38 AM
But John as you know there is a reason why you haven't seen a Spanish (or more Politically correct would be Latin American, Hispanic, or South American, Spanish would be Spaniard) person win SBO for KOF-

Money.

Talent is not the issue, it is lack of money. It costs $3,000 for an SBO Qualifier...that is close to 35,000 pesos basically, no way a person in Mexico will have that.

Thus the premise of my World KOF Cup, the only true way to show people that there is more to fighting games than Asia...

and I think The KOF Cup 2011 has clearly shown that you cannot determine what is going to happen until things actually happen in person.

Those that even praised Hummer on GGPO are no longer to be found as I have done my research, so the message is getting across, there is talent all over the world, it just takes MONEY (and a lot of it) to unite these people under one roof..which is what I am trying to do so that people can open their eyes and stop focusing on the glitz, glamour and other stuff and start seeing the skill level they have been missing in other countries.

Mexico has at least shown they can hang with the tops in Japan in KOF 2002, and that is one small step to my big puzzle to showing the world that being "Asia centric" does not apply to a true World Championship.

Hummer himself told me that SBO is only limited to Asia, Europe, and North America, when truth of the matter is Latin America doesnt get an invite even to SBO.

Thus again creating this Asia-centric mentality that Asia=greater than the others in all things fighting games when that is quite an overgeneralization.

There are people like Kula, Zeus and others that may live in poorer conditions, but should not be denied access to competition based off where they live.

I am learning the same even in Peru and other countries, very high level players but may not live in the best conditions.

That is the way it is...and people in the USA due to cultural values have been limited to only the glitz, glamour, presentation of EVO, SBO, Duelling the KOF etc, and have forgotten that it is all about SKILL LEVEL...

and this is the exact reason why i dont get a lot of american players or posters in general (not directed at DC). some people talk about the sf2 hey days and how tomo or some other player/s was unbeatable or the best in the world. i grew up on those games and i find it hard to believe that in a time where there where no vids or worldwide tournaments from ALL OVER the world to just say, this dude was the best. ive never understood the arrogance of some of the people that say bs like that. ive seen these guys play, theyre just great players. and theres lots of great players in the world, and lots people nobody may ever even heard about. im baffled by statements like this because this was in a time where there where sf/snk cabs everywhere. how in the fuck anybody had the balls to say something like that, i still dont get. wtf where these people smoking, i want some of it.

I'm stating it on a worldwide scale, there are people like Kula, Zeus, and plenty others known and unknown that need to play, but there are many things preventing them from playing.

So I understand about the Tomo thing, how do people know he was "The Best in the World"?


I'm no SF expert, but in KOF, as I've said, there are people of high level skill all over the world. SF is like basketball, KOF is like soccer, thus there are more high level players in KOF around the world than SF.

The main reason I level up so fast is because I get to play very high level opponents all the time that may be known or unknown.


Rex Dart- I am trying to do this, there is simply too much skill in the world for us to ever focus just on one particular area, and the top 3 players from every country would probably be something like the World KOF Cup Finals or SemiFinals, I have it broken up how it's going to work there has to be a 2 year Qualifier process.

Geting someone to sponsor it?

That will be LDA Inc, but it will take time because there are many things like passports, visas, and a bunch of other things that make this a hassle to setup.

But it needs to be done, it started with Mexico vs. Japan series in 2002 that has gained international recognition with Bata, Danke, Hummer, has caused more international players to want to travel to Mexico to play, and now I am starting a new chapter with Mexico vs. Peru.

Slowly but surely I am building a world championship...

hi my name is jason and I'm new to the KOF scene. I'm from irvine, CA and I was introduce to this site from a friend. I also looked up a place to play KOF XIII (I only play KOF 99 to KOF XI) I rarely play on sticks so I'm slowly working on that right now.

 Tonight I played mr. kof (which I didn't know it was him til ten minutes later when I asked if he's from Dream Cancel) so yeah haha He introduce me to this forum, told me to post here (I'm not too sure if this is right thread) and so here I am. I hope to meet up with all of you guys soon.  

Jason, it's good that you're introducing yourself through the so cal thread since there will be many who will meet you at Alex's arcade who're from this thread. But, if you'd like to introduce yourself widely...you could do it under the Meet and Greet Section. Either way, it's a great thing that another person from Alex Arcade will join the KOF 13 family.You took me by surprise when you said you didn't want to wait for 13 to come out on console and decided to come down from Irvine. Like i said feel free to come on Thursdays when it's popping. I'm sure you'll be able to pick up a thing or two while watching. Remember to check out vids from dream cancel or check the KOF 13 reference guides. Have fun and feel free to ask one of us if u have any questions. :)

Though I had to catch the archived stream, great job at RevLAtions, guys. The commentary by Yuhang and Oscar was solid and informative. A friend of mine who doesn't play KOF said he enjoyed it and that the commentary made the matches easier to follow. I'm sure John and Reynald are most likely disappointed with their performances, but that's KOF sometimes. Bala was entertaining to watch. Props for continuing to rep the game and don't lose steam before the console release! I'll be looking forward to your performances at EVO!

It's okay for B.A.L.A. to experience the lime light because he has what it takes to become one of the four gods in KOF 13.  I'm happy that he won. If anyone who gets too ahead of himself/ or if anyone in general who thinks they've got what it takes to play for keeps....we can play like this  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Sr54ekOkTg

LMAO. I told you guys John now and days man I'm so sick and tired of all the talk man I play for retiring rights.

So yeah if I beat these guys talking smack they gotta hang it up for good!!!!

I never underestimate my opponent because I'm not Naive. I would treat Bala, Romance, and Reynald the same way.

Here is my view/rules for the Four gods to follow.

1. To be recognized as the best player is to defeat ALL 3 in FT10
2. Everyone is permitted to challenge a God to FT10 to Steal their rank.
3. Respect. Once it's broken then we have a problem.

Let's work together in seeing this through, because I want everyone to Level Up together and Unite when it comes down to it.

Who/what's the 4 gods? Sound pretty cool for those names


To Ash, The Answer and Sam (somethingCancel)

Thanks for teaching me about the game and gg as well. I'll come by tonight for sure (if work doesn't kills me first)

Also

is there a video tutorial about the KOF XIII system like HD Cancel or Drive Cancel etc?

The only thing I know was Max Cancel works like Dream Cancel from KOF XI


Thank you.

I kno this is kinda odd but is anyone going to Anime Expo 2011? I could bring my ps2 and KOF XI if there's enough people interested (Sorry I don't have a ps3 so we can't play KOF XII but if you do bring it then cool) and get some games in or I can just go meet you guys there at Japan Arcade and also get some games in as well.

if anyone else interested let me kno??

The Four Gods should set a good example of what a champion should be. Traits such as good sportsmanship while having the charisma to make the game look exciting. We won't establish who the four gods are until we all mutually agree who belongs up there first. After that, Immortality Take it, It's YOURS!

i'm probably like total scrub status now because i'm so behind, but if any of you guys ever head out to FFA on the weekends this summer, you'll probably see me there.

Thank you.

Drive canceling requires 50 percent drive per cancel. HD canceling is quite different which allows moves to be canceled into other moves during your opponents block stun where in areas it's not possible to drive cancel if someone has blocked your move.

Yeah this Game Is by far the best KOF ever in my opinion. Friendly enough for everyone to learn the game quickly with its fine and easy engine. It's great that it will be on console for everyone to level up on their own time.

Yes Yoshi, DG advised John to go play with you guys at least once a week if he wants to be able to keep up with Armando and the rest of team Chaos. I'm glad he listen to the advise of his KOF elders (weather he admits it or not) and is going to play you guys more often.

Get this FT50 or whatever recorded please..because trust me I have been getting calls nonstop about this stuff even from Mexico so please get it recorded and link me when done...

LOL no recording. Hush Hush match. I don't people to see me losing to BALA  ;) He's that Good!

you know john,if you were to play more often with armando and the rest of us then you'll be able to get a better idea of how we play.so when it comes to tourneys and all that stuff,the one who "surprises" the most is the one who will win.we would obviously know eachothers strategies and that will force us to upgrade our game to another level.you do this ill do that,you do something else then ill do something else....its like an escalator.im very sure you know what im talking about.:)

Yes Yoshi, DG advised John to go play with you guys at least once a week if he wants to be able to keep up with Armando and the rest of team Chaos. I'm glad he listen to the advise of his KOF elders (weather he admits it or not) and is going to play you guys more often. Unfortunately at AA we can not deliver the level of competition at the moment since we don't play as much.

Yes I did I told him you guys take for granted what you both have. I have no one remotely close to my skill level where I am (yes even Dallas, Texas) so I have to travel to even remotely start pulling out my main characters. I don't get to play anyone of skill until once every three months so I feel I am taking advantage of whatever opportunity I have. If I had access to you guys all the time and Mexico, believe me I would take the opportunity to play all the time in KOF13 and everything so I could get better. But you all must realize again not everyone has the same access to competition as the rest of you all.

But again that does not stop me from getting stronger, I just know if I did have access more than once every 3 months I would probably be about 40x stronger than I am now!

But with this said I know there are people that aren't willing to travel to get better in KOF, and then they must realize that they will always be playing catchup to:

1. Those that have access to competition like SoCal
2. Those like me that travel and do what it takes to gain access to their competition.

They could be playing KOF13 for a year and I could get it in a month or so and because I have access to more competition than they would have I would be able to defeat them! (Guys FYI for example I've only been playing SvC Chaos for like 5 months MAX.....)

So yes though more people will be getting into KOF13 unless there are a lot of high level dedicated players to the game I still feel in the bottom of my heart that things are going to remain status quo...

"Aka SoCal vs. DG vs. Mexico vs. Japan"

You're apeshit crazy. =)  I value my beauty sleep too much...ah the things we do for KOF.

CMD.Duc jumped out of a plane yesterday thinking of combos...

As for Sam ESB Cancel, if you're reading this, don't get intimidated and keep on playing man.  Jason DJMirror949 is learning the game too so he'll be a good sparring partner.

Post by: ESB Cancel on June 24, 2011, 11:13:48 PM
Wow, I haven't posted here in a while! lol

First off, I'd like to apologize to everyone for not playing "at all" yesterday. Especially, to Kane317, (when you asked why I wasn't playing) sorry man  :(

I'm not going to give up playing and learning KOF13 but I'm trying to take the learning process slow and not rush, admittedly till the console version comes out. Having summer classes sounds like a very poor excuse, I know, but I haven't got a chance to play or practice "any" games the whole week till yesterday night. After not touching the game for a while and coming back to it, it becomes very difficult, skills are forgotten, and I would have to learn some things all over again. In other words, I did not want to get killed by everyone when I haven't practiced for so long and nearly forgotten a lot of stuff lol But that's why everyone encourages each other to keep playing and practicing  ;) Also to Jason, keep playing man! Hopefully I can come down today to AA to get some games down with everyone.

All in all, I only have Thursdays and Fridays to play (depending) so the learning process will be "very" slow for me. But I still really want to play and learn KOF 13. Hopefully, when the console version comes, learning will be much easier. (Yes, it looks like I'm taking the easy way out  :( lol) See everyone soon! Sorry for the long post.

I can't say anything about that because I'm not the level where I can measure at them plus I never play Ash, Mr. KOF, Kane317, The Answer, Cafe Lu, ESB Cancel or anyone else in tournament
I only played them in friendlies/casual matches where they can try new stuff/mess around where I'm currently trying to work things like how to move my characters or do commands lol (I can't play stick) I know even if it's casual or tournament I still get rocked pretty hard both ways so I just do my best to work on my commands/combos on stick before I work on mindgames etc

GGS everyone. Ash was playing keep away with the ground all night. My turbo cB can't be beat, even when I'm losing, its winning! I should study some Takuma stuff so I get an idea of how to use him. I saw better options being used by a few people than mine, but I'm very set in my ways, and I have to change that.

AA needs to fix that Pinball machine! Abe is bad luck and needs to learn the old ways of of the arcade.

Hey everyone. I spent the entire weekend at Anime Expo. But more notibly the arcade room at the con. When I got there, I found a crowded KOF13 machine in the back with lots of people. (The cabinet looks like the big MVC2 that AA has, only with japanese buttons and sticks.)

I decided that I wanted to play people of different skills and see if I can still do ok as a begginer. I'm not trying to sound elitist or brag, but no one but 2 or 3 people knew how to play. Everyone else just chose to button mash so much that one of the buttons stopped responding on the player one side :(

But aside from that, this experience gave me the time needed to get "comfortable" and used to the game while playing the game at my own pace and test it against others that are equal to my level. (You guys were right, for beginners, playing people of equal skills does help alot.) I'm not saying that I got advanced, but just that I got used to the controls and the normal attacks of the characters I chose, probably some mechanics of the system too.

Sorry if this post is too long and/or doesn't mean much. I still have a long way to go, but I haven't given up wanting to have fun and get good with KOF13. Hope to play everyone at Alex's Arcade real soon! ;)

I know this is super ridiculous "OMG HAX YOU DOUCHE" last minute but I'd kick myself if I didn't hit about just every avenue I knew of...but any of you fellas gonna be in norcal this weekend?

Recently (we're talkin last night literally) I learned that IPW is super hype about a KOFXIII stream for this Sunday's ranbat at Southtown Arcade. If interests/attendance is up high enough then it's a lock for Sunday and we're gonna blow the roof off the joint.

These guys wanna take XIII places based upon what I discussed with Haunts and Roger. So I'm campaigning hard to get just about all the players I know of within a reasonable (and in this case somewhat unreasonable) distance to show up, or at least to be aware of what we're trying to do here and hype it up for some cats who may not know.

So anyway yeah, my knees hurt from all this groveling so I'll leave it at that, and thanks for any support in any form that anyone can give!

I feel like this and that thing that happened the other week is really going to give NorCal the push it needs to establish KOFXIII as a serious game. A lot of people are behind this and I'm doing my best to get more people to enter even if they don't play XIII. The response has been very positive so far and I am quite excited.

Wish I could be there this weekend. Sounds like it'll be a good event. If only I didn't have an extremely limited amount of income. But then again if I had a job, I would have an extremely limited amount of free time haha. Hope you guys get a good turnout for the tourney.

Sticking with Ash huh? I respect that.


Also the tournament that was planned for 7/09/2011 in Little Tokyo Arcade has been canceled since I  was not able to get a hold of the staff at that arcade. It will be rescheduled to 07/16/2011 at Alex's Arcade, let me know what you guys think.

We got it on Sunday because that's the day IPW was free for streaming, if it turns out well though I'm pretty sure they'll be open to future streams at Southtown, maybe someday a weekly, so there's likely plenty of opportunities for this to happen. Like Reiki said though if you've got free time on Sunday check us out, I will be on commentary, I'll do my best!

so apparently "Xian" from singapore is in my pools for ssf4 along with gootecks. But what you may not know is that Xian had placed top 4 in KOF 13 during last years SBO! He even placed top 8 in a recent SSf4 tourney in Australia. Hopefully him and I make it out of our brackets with ease without running into each other  :)

I should surprise him by not letting him know that a fellow KOF'er is in his pool. Will this be my undoing??

Hi!

My name is Champ and I'm a member of the CSULB club and also part of 2 Good Gaming

http://www.facebookc.om/2ggaming (http://www.facebookc.om/2ggaming)

we host biweekly tournaments at CSULB Long Beach, CA on saturday on various games and so far it's great! The social gathering and competition is fun ad exciting.

I was told by DJMirror (friend of mine since 06?) that many of the KOF players lives around Long Beach and that it would be a good spot to host events. So, I say why not?

I am here to ask you guys what you want and I will make the event accommodate your needs. I love the fighting community and I just want to provide help.

For now, my plan for KOF is to have in on the PS3 with at least 3 set ups with the ASUS monitor. We can also host it at 1:30pm or 3:30pm.

You guys can decide on the entry fee, ranbat, anything. I'm all ears and will take any feedback from you guys.

There are also a lot of CSULB students who are hype about the game and it will be great for you guys to show them the ropes and add new players too.

So yeah, feel free to let me know how you guys feel. I want to make this happen because I'm also hype about KOF myself haha

not sure if any if you guys heard of super arcade but its is under new management. mike watson an old school sf2 player works there now and hes doing a very good job and hearing everyone out. he is taking any request to help this arcade grow and i would like to see some kof up on this place haha.  after ai closed i dont really know where to go for the local KOF scene anymore.  But Super Arcade is taking in request and wants to hear the community on what games they want for the arcade.  So if any locals around the walnut city area wants an kof xiii cab or other games u missed at ai.  im sure they would love to hear what you guys gotta say on that.

Good looking out ChaSuiBao.  We OC folks has Alex's Arcade in Santa Ana but I'm sure Super Arcade will fill the void for those that lived closed to AI.

I don't think he would invest in a 13 cab, for the simple reason that is's a bad move considering it's gonna be super obsolete when console 13 comes out. However if they did have the console version there I would make trips out there from time to time since it's closer to me. But my homebase will always be the OC unfortunately lol unless everybody there moves

Post by: chasiubao on August 09, 2011, 04:16:52 AM
well if there is enough request if the community step up im sure he'll get the kof xiii cab.  The owner of Super Arcade is basically the owner of Jap Arcade and FFA.  Old man Ralph just wants to see the place grow so im sure he'll be happy to please the locals around even if console version is just around the corner.   Ralph seems like the type of guy who just wants to please the arcade scene.  plus they do have console set ups with sticks but im sure if u guys also request for console version once its out im sure watson will help you guys out if enough ppl request it.  Watson is a great guy his plan for Super what he is going to do is gonna be great.  He wants to start hosting Ranbats or tournys for all the SF games.  He will even escrow for you guys if you guys decide to money match like how ppl do it in marvel 2 LOL.  A lot of famous or actual really good socal SF players have been attending to see super arcade within the past first week and they had a blast with watson.  So right now only request has been going on with the Capcom fighter fans and they are getting what they want.  

Hopefully the KOF scene and various of other fighters like the blazblue players guilty gear and etc come out and actually let watson hear their voices.  because not just that he wants just an really nice beautiful arcade scene in the future.  its also gonna be a dojo for the serious players to come out and train.  Super Arcade does not look that good yet but its having a good start and a lot of games, buttons, sticks and etc are ordered and about to replace the whole arcade since everything was beat up there.  they even got alien vs predator holy shit when is the last time i saw that game in a freagin cabinet LOL.  

Well just putting it out there i miss you guys no lie when AI closed.  But this Super Arcade would like to grow and it could use anyones help or atleast tell them what would you like to see at this arcade.  :)

So whats gonna happen anyways once console version is out.  is the arcade gonna get the updates on the tweaks atleast?

I've heard conflicting reports, some of them say flat-out that there will not be any updates to the arcade and then No.17 reports that it's possible.  For now, take it as a no.

Went to Japan Arcade tonight to see the Kacho (from Game Center CX). Saw three dudes playing XIII, and played a few games with one of 'em. He definitely knew his stuff, and I had a lot of fun. Although that damn 4-gate joystick kept screwing me up.

I don't know if they're on these forums, but good times.

Let's just hope I can quickly apply them to my gameplay before I forget them and have to start over again lol jk But again, thanks guys! :)

And to Kane, if I'd have known you were stopping by, I would have came earlier. Would have been great to play you again. Oh well, there's always a next time. Hopefully, we can play each other real soon when console version drops! ;)

Just wanted to say gg's to Team Chaos even though i had a short stay at Little Tokyo. Too bad we couldn't get enough games in.
@ B1gblack: Nice to meet you and hopefully you'll be able to come out to AA sometime and try your luck with some of the locals over here.
@davidkong: I'm glad that you're asking the right questions on how to become better. The only definite answer is to take the beating and never giving up :)

The secret is out! Last night was the official welcoming to our new KOF Lord at Alex Arcade, YES! BALA the EVO Champion has moved to Santa Ana (5 min from my house XD) and will now a regular in OC events. His been leaving in SA for a few days already but per his request I've kept it a secret as he didn't want to make a big deal about it, but now I can lol!

I'm happy to have this great addition to the team as KOF has been gaining a lot of popularity at AA and this can only make it better, last night we have quite the number of players from other games (MvC2/3,SF4,) surrounding the KOF cab just to watch him play when they heard who he was. So next time you guys see him make sure you say Welcome! ^_^

Also shoutouts to BALA for staying with the AA crew till 2am when he had to work at 5am, I started work at 7am and I feel like shit I can't imagine how his feeling lol!

@jinxhand: Like Kane said we are all going to be somewhat busy this month so it's going to be a little tough going down there, but don't let that discourage you should still host a get together and play some casuals. Calmwarrior from the BoxArena is an old friend of mine who really likes SNK games, he was telling me that he might start doing some sessions there.

Also I have some friends from TJ who are able to cross to San Diego and might be able to join you for some tournaments and events, they are from Team Lago and they are also coming to SCR2011. I'll try to hook you up with them.

About Isaiah coming to SoCal I've talked Alex and everything is set up for Friday, there will be a $3 venue fee and we will set the machine to FREE PLAY so we can have or FT5 sets comfortably and have Isaiah stay on the machine.

Also Richard Kobra aka X-Factor aka Ricardo has a 4G hotspot and will be bringing it to AA that day so we will have internet available.

P.S. Checkout the SCR2011 thread we have a new sponsor.

Great news on eightarc sponsoring SCR! 

As for the 4G hotspot, I hope you're not intending to do some streaming event like last time (there were a lot of angry French viewers because you posted there would be a stream).  Wireless stream, for the most part, has failed more than it has succeeded and is not reliable.
