Just saw the replay and went over my matches, great tourney.

@Char: you look hella on9 whiffing those command grabs.

@Reiki: good match you were definitely opening me up when your K' went in. Like Roger said I think you play a little too defensively waiting for mistakes, sometimes you have to force the opponent to make mistakes.

@Fixel: GGs rushed me down QQ. I need to figure out what moves are punishable or not.

@SoCal: it was good to get exposed to that higher level play firsthand. Especially Duc, he plays all the chars I like and his K' is sick, going to use that footage for hints to improve.

I understand what you mean. I'm not a very aggressive person or player so that probably comes out in my gameplay. I'll consider the "Make people make mistakes" advice.

Also, during our last match, I was aware of the time. I just gave up the match. Nothing I could do in that situation.

NEVER GIVE UP!!!! There's always something you can do, or something your opponent may not think to do, or may think to do and you expect them to do it and bait it out for the punish.

Yea, really nice pics. It seemed like you took more than that. I know every time I looked at you you put your camera down, trying to be a ninja with the camera? :)

Hey Freedumb!  Give yourself a proper introduction when you get a chance.

I'm finally caught up with work and can do some posting.  Needless to say, last weekend was amazing and so much fun we really wish we could stay longer.  You guys have leveled up and I've already mentioned it multiple times.

Fixel, nice pictures and check your PM.

STA Ranbats are so so much fun, see you guys at SCR (have integrity hehe and honor the bet)!

hahaha thanks man, I did took a lot more than that, but some turned out bad because I tried to be ninja like you said.. lol. And the rest are pictures of Jose doing something stupid because he's mad drunk. Maybe I should upload an album just for his pictures :P

Ash: what's wrong with being nerdy dude?! :P

That match was intense, but Christian's ability to learn is scary. 4leaf's Athena tactics he picked up in a matter of days. He's got a handle on teleporting and command grabbing. A week or so and he'll be switching at will between a zoning Athena to an aggro Athena.

Tell Eric to stop being a fraud and come to SCR already.  =)  You guys really have to witness some really strong players down here, Mr KOF, Reynald (who'll take us all to school and he's played less than all of you guys right now), The Answer, Team Chaos (6-7 of them), and of course Bala the beast.

Sorry school>fighting games. I was already in the process of making plans to head down for SCR when I found out I couldn't because of finals. I'm just retired from the ranbats for now but when I come back you guys are gonna be in for quite a few treats I think. I'm still working hard at KOF, don't worry.
