Good games to everyone that made it out on Wednesday. I think most of us are still adjusting to the speed and pacing of SFIV again. I'm still up for some Marvel or BlazBlue as well.

You make Dudley weep with your blasphemous words. I was wondering what happened to you. Shinobi also didn't make it out last night for some reason. I hope his internet did not suffer from the same arsonist.

GGs this week in AE. It's definitely weird going back to SSF4 after the rapid pace of Marvel.

Tokido is the CEO 2011 Marvel champion, taking J.Wong out in the Grand Finals. Huge upset. Incredible matches in the Finals and Grand Finals. Good show to ChrisG as well.

That Marvel finals was a really good set. It was really interesting to see how Tokido used his team with a lot of Lvl 1 X-Factor and not being afraid to burn the meter with his other characters besides Phoenix. It's like the complete opposite of what we've been seeing.

I'm tuning into the AE finals right now. If any of you guys are on, hop on to IRC.

Yeah, it was good stuff. Tokido was actually doing that over a month ago in Europe (Lvl1 Xfactor burn). And Justin was doing it too. This is just the first major in the U.S. since then, I think. It really only works with Wolverine for a number of reasons:

1) No other character is able to kill off another character in Level 1 X-Factor that quickly (leaving tons of X-Factor for the next character) AND
2) Pull off several 50/50 mixups in a row at super speed on the next incoming character (which could potentially lead to a second dead character)

That's why you don't see many other characters utilizing the level 1. And, of course, it's applicability and usefulness is dependent on your opponent's team composition. He is pretty unique in his willingness to use meter on his Phoenix team, though. That's been sort of a trademark strat for him.

I was really really cheering for Mike Ross at the end there. Amazing work he put in this weekend.

Yeah, I know the Lvl1 X-Factor is common with Wolverine for the reasons you mentioned - it's something I've seen a lot of people do including Justin & Noel Brown.

What I was really surprised with was Tokido's willingness to burn his X-Factor and meter on a Phoenix team. To this point, most Phoenix players generally:

1) Get 5 meters, put her in until she turns dark and tag her our so the other characters can use meter. Save the X-Factor for her
2) Save all the meter, keep her last, use the X-Factor for her.

I hadn't really seen him play since FR, where he was using Wolverine/Sent/Akuma so I wasn't aware of how he played the Phoenix team. It was an interesting strategy and obviously it worked. It's pretty amazing that he got 1st in BBCS2, MVC3, and AE and 3rd in T6.

I was pulling for Mike Ross too. His matches were all pretty exciting and he had a lot of clutch moments.

Well, another thing to keep in mind is that Justin's team was perfect for doing the Lvl1 X-Factor against. His anchor was Tron, obviously Justin's weakest link on that team. If Tokido managed to take out the first two characters, the match was already over. There's not much that Level 3 X-Factor Tron can do except throw out j.C's and hope for the best. Possibly catch a Lvl3 Hyper in a clutch moment. That's about it. I'm sure Tokido was taking that into consideration.

Tokido also seemed incredibly comfortable with regular Phoenix. Moreso than Filipino Champ or Viscant at this stage in the game.
I didn't even get to see BBCS2. Who was he using in that?

I didn't see any of the matches, I just heard he won it. Apparently there weren't a lot of entries. I know in streams I've seen previously for BBCS he uses Bang (of course). I'm sure he stuck with him in BBCS2.

I don't know when/if finals were streamed. It would have been Friday night or Saturday morning.

I remember him mentioning he was learning her back on one of his podcasts. Juicebox should learn more characters just so we can see more dances.

So it looks like right now Oni is the new Ken for AE. There soooo many of them and they're all mashing HK/EX slash. From mid range it's pretty easy to see coming and punish, but up close it's tough to react to. Any suggestions?

LK is safe on block, MK doesn't cross-up, is unsafe, but does cause un-techable KD on hit, and HK/EX cross-up. Is it best to try and hit them out of it for HK/EX or try and block then punish?

If you can react to it, a simple c.lk will knock them out of the EX. I don't think the move has any invincibility, though I could be wrong. It's just a gimmick that people are going to have to adjust to, and until they do, Oni's will get free hits. I'm not sure how punishable EX is on block.

There was a tourney where he was in the crowd and did a different dance for every ultra someone did. I can't remember what event it was and can't find any videos from it.

GGs to Guardian, bs, Kensei, Gouki, & Ozzy. Is Ozzy on CAG? He had a pretty sick Hakan, I was really surprised. I need to go back and watch the replays from last night because I felt like I kept making the same mistakes over & over. Lots of really close matches though and that's what's important!

I'm still really confused as to where my 200PP magically disappeared to, but at least this came out of it....

That was EVO 2009. I can't find the video of him acting out the Ultras in the crowd (I remember him doing Balrog's) but I found this:

Good games to Tom, et al. + Joe. Ozzy isn't on CAG, I don't think. He had a pretty good connection yesterday, but usually matches with him are kinda lag filled. He had green bars so he wanted to take advantage and get in on the lobby. Hakan can be scary since no one knows the matchup. :P

That really sucks about your PP. I guess now we know for future reference how to avoid it anyway.


Netcode in MK is still ass in King of the Hill. :( It's not too bad in 1v1 player matches, but I don't think any patches have been released yet. Message of the day is still "Welcome to Mortal Kombat"

Presente.

I've been practicing the third super secret special art, pre-game rage quitting. Through my practice as a punching bag, I've finally been able to successfully pull off this special art for two weeks in a row.

Work kept me from fight night a week and a half ago and this past week I've been sick. I don't know that I would've been able to join you on AE - I haz no points. Working to get an approval for an appropriation of gaming budget funds from the committee. I'll let you know what she says.

I hope to be on this Wednesday. Expect to be amazed with how terribad I am now.

This is a big part of the reason why I hate playing ranked matches. I like keeping my sodium levels at normal. Ranked does have it's advantages though since you encounter a lot of different fighting styles. Some of them complete garbage though, lol.

I don't know if anyone else notices, but I have to say that the netcode seems to be better with AE overall compared to vanilla SSF4. It's still not HDR status, but it's good.
