The only downside is that some of the people who lost just left and never returned not paying attention to me saying it was double elim, but I guess it worked out well in the end, except for that one hairy idiot who could only mash C with Ralf :(

Oops, there were 4 ppl that knew how to play :)   My bad :) heh.

Mashing C makes Ralf top teir, but its still only 2-3 people. Chewbacca doesn't count :(

I was watching Metaphysics Kyo and was planning on trying some of the stuff he was doing, mainly the cB, cA, dfD into X, but I fell into typical habits. I also might swap out Ralf, but that might be in the future, when it hits console.

To be honest with you, I'm focusing more on the back end of things than getting good at the game. I'd like to get to the level I used to play 98 at, but that won't happen.

BTW, I gave Noc your contact info.

Hell a KOF centric podcast series would be awesome but thats just me wishlisting at this rate.

Hmm, that doesn't sound like a bad idea to me. SRK and Meltybread has their own, and they do fairly well and good interviews and news are enjoyable to listen to.

Hey guys I'm happy to hear that NCR was a success and I'm sorry I couldn't make it. I have to take care of some personal things but, I'll be around dc.com for sure.

Cool cool, tell him to text me first coz I seldom pick up numbers I don't recognize.  We appreciate your hard work on the back end.!

It's all good, we understand.  Just don't get too out of shape by the time we play next Oscar!

How was it received by the ppl there?

Juicebox mentioned it a couple of times trying to start a conversation while he was commentating on the stream, saying how good it looked and how he was definitely going to play it, but Mike Ross kinda ignored it both times.

And, from what I understood, no one showed up for the BlazBlue tournament.

Yeah there were quite a few people playing it and everyone seemed to like the game. Juicebox was there I got a couple games against him and the tourney went pretty well. Setup was pretty fine the whole time besides people accidentally pressing start and some monitor lag, but even with the lag people were commenting on how fun it was!

also gold fish mixups

Best not to look a gift horse in the mouth, right?

I've become a lot more comfortable playing KOF with a stick, (although the AC/BD layout can DIAF). I started thinking I might want to buy a stick for the console version, and discovered this. This is awesome.

I'm not saying I want to pay for it, but I want it none the less. I could even swap the button colors around, for that classic NeoGeo layout. If only I was a millionaire...

Glad to hear there was a healthy interest for the game. I know you guys decided not to stream the finals but the matches were nice so it would have done good. Watching that weirdo looking fighter (Jackie Chan or something?) stream, for a while, and XIII, not at all, kinda hurt.

XIII happened.

Hey there, welcome to DC.  Make sure you introduce yourself here as well

DC would be a great place to unite the interest of NorCal players, I know Mr. Soulstar is from Fairfax but I'm sure you know that already.  You guys should just arrange a day to drive down together, if you can get 4+ ppl the whole trip would cost you about $40 ish give or take (not including food of course) -- that' how much it would have cost us if we had 4 (one bailed last min).

Even with screen lag the game was sick, but if I'd known they were gonna have a tourney, and that I'd be facing Kane in my second round, I'd probably not have spent the whole day getting hammered XD

Anyway, a whole lot of Norcal players showing real interest in this game, and a few buddies I haven't seen since we ran XI back in the day. Did anyone get pictures of the crowd around the setup? I'd like to post them in an arcade thread on SRK since the cab provider's really skeptical over KOFXIII's possible popularity here.
