A scrubby bison player here who quite often play in GW, need some help from pros about bison vs abel matchup. I am a bison player btw.
Situation:
If abel roll toward you, will normal throw beats his tornado throws? ( I know it wont works if he throw ex- TT)
I always scared to frame trap abel because some good player know when to mash TT.Sometimes I am just clueless how to escape pressure from abel without wasting any meter.

my mind will be fucked up when encounter a good abel player. :-[

I don't know his name but GGs to the asian guy using Dan, pretty sure he was at the York st. gathering too.

I got harassed twice at GW in the early hours by drunk women. One was a mole wanting sex (she looked like a bag of shit) and the other wanted to play, lost then started trying to bash the cabinet. wtf.

cards from market city work at george street but the money you loaded at market city won't work at george street. it was either that or the card doesn't work at all with george street GW. ;s

Ex-TT is not throw invincible, but it is hit invincible. Normal TT is however, throw invincible, but is not hit invincible. You can also throw Abel out of his Marseilles Roll (all versions including ex). Are you talking about the Honkie dude with glasses? His Abel is pretty damn good.

GG's to all my opponents from 12:30pm-4:00pm. It was a serious Street Fighter binge. Not many players on Saturday during those hours hahahaha. I even finished the game twice...  and one guy just enters credit as I beat Seth... my $1.10. Damn.

I had my longest streak ever! (Broken by the damn game completion) of 34! About 10 of those were from kids playing for the first time and the rest of the players were quite casual, barring a Guile which was quite solid.

To that Akuma/Oni player, the amount of jump back fireballs was sickening!! Frustrated me into 3 losses when I promised myself to play solidly. Some of those air to airs weren't even reactive, they were mass fierce punches as you were leaving the ground.

And those demon flips into U1. Holy. I don't think you won once with your Oni and for good reason! I had to put my E.Ryu aside at the end, I just wanted to get in with Dudely and wreck face.

I guess I'm salty because I lost to a scrubby play style, which plays to win under any means. About 80% of those tick throws succeeded as well which all occurred after ONE jab, I will never understand why I got hit by those throws. That Guile player was leagues ahead yet your win rate was around the same. Seriously an Akuma playing spam fireball/double kick, then occasionally flipping in and adding in brain dead tick throws and whack U1 setups is comparable in wins to a Guile with developed fundamentals and game sense. I will never understand why this game rewards such bs, there was not one combo. You punished several whiffed shoryukens with mp.srk. Wat da hell.

I'm not half as mad as I sound, just posting my thoughts whilst they still fresh. Again, gg's, I'm enjoying local play immensely. :)

Hi I just want ask another question regarding abel match up here (bison player).

Let say the abel player do the step kick on you and you have NO METER, again this will put you in 50% situation again

1) you expect abel will do TT on you which , which one is preferable way to avoid his pressure? backdash, neutral jump? I noticed that some of the player purposely get hit by abel player, so they won't be in block string (how the hell they do it?)

2) he will do cr HP because he expect you to do neutral jump.Is there any follow up combo or ultra after cr HP.?

3)jump and hit you then dash forward..this shit again TT or... zzzzz

if he score you a knock down, the situation is even worse....guess game again. he can TT, cr HP , or overhead mix up...if no meter basically very hard to escape.

 Hopefully anyone can help me...really fed up of abel match up >:( . Bison cannot mashed teleport because they have OS to punish teleport (maybe will try once and never do it again). I think this apply to every characters when the player is meterless under abel pressure.

I could be wrong, but isn't f+MK dash neutral? If so, mash dat c.LK. It'll lose to tornado throw and possibly EX Rekka but it should pretty much beat all of his other options.

Off a jumping attack/reset, you are kind of forced into a guessing game between throw/button press and without meter Bison's options are somewhat limited. If he's tornado throwing, jump, if he's not just block... and try to save meter for those situations I suppose. Bison doesn't really need to use meter to extend combos or anything. If you play ultra defensively and SK chip away at him/anti air him as he tries to come at you I don't think it's too bad.

Lol there is a rather salty fellow there who plays Ryu mainly and does alot of random tatsu and typical keep away... he is slowly improving though with some cr.hp AA... he does look like he is gonna shoryuken the person next to him...

good games to everyone yesterday. was the asian guy playing ken, gouken, akuma and ryu.

on another note, while i was at time zone across the street from galaxy, some random homeless looking guy started raging at me because i joined in on his game, didn't even notice he was there until he stood up and started calling me a bitch, among other words i didn't catch because i was listening to music; looked like he really wanted to smash me hahaha.

I was just there and it seems there were no AE cabs? Only vanilla. Did they hide them or something.

But I was there a month ago (Market City) and it had AE. Not sure if it was 2012 though. They seemed to have changed the setuos around too.

Be that as it may, you're better off going to George Street. The sticks are pretty shitty at Market City, though having said that, George St GW's sticks are only a tad better, but 8 cabs, all updated to AE2012. Should be a no-brainer as to which one deserves your money more.

I was at Galaxy World George St until close, towards the end it looked like a homeless gang. I lost a couple games to them just so I didn't get knifed on the way out. One of them had a leg covered in dried blood! Then outside McDonalds like 2 stores over a bunch of street kids start trying to fight some drunk guy. Good times!

GGs everyone who was there yesterday. We probably had a few matches. By the end I was a greasy nerdy mess of a human being. Some dude playing Rose nearly hit a 50 win streak, mostly against me... I couldn't beat him to save my fucking life. Pulled off a nice super to ultra combo on me... It was nice. I was playing Ryu, Makoto, some Cammy, Akuma and Dan.

Market City had 2 AE cabs for a while, they got rid of them a few weeks ago. Just vanilla there now...

Timezone is $1.10 for best of 5... I go there every now and again... it's good for mucking around even though there's only 2 cabs. I lost my Gold card a while ago, never got it replaced, makes me sad.

There were 2 guys playing at Timezone the other day, a Bison and a Ryu, I watched your games and played E.Ryu after the Bison left.
The Bison guy was dropping taunts like a boss ahahaha. GG

Ahahahaaha... yeah some pretty salty people at the arcade, what can you do. Just play your game, STAY IN PUBLIC AREAS! XD

When there are some weaker players at the cabs, I normally play an alt, I think it works out for everyone that way. You improve with your alt, sorta.. and they have more game time.

that guy was salty before we even started the match, LOL.
we wasn't even all that bad, he knew how to block. haha
i gave him a round and he stood up and shook his head at me and said some other stuff that i didn't catch haha, couldn't help but laugh at his facial expression, think he saw me smiling, could guarantee he really wanted to drop me after seeing that :L
he actually approached me and said crap, still couldnt hear him half the time cause of my music LOL, then i guess he got scared away by the time zone staff.

i honestly dont even know why theres a GW at market city anymore, the only thing they have over george street is bumper cars, and who rides those anyway? haha. damn, they should just invest, renovate and expand the george street arcade or something

Had a decent session yesterday. Good games. Some asian guy playing Ryu, Evil Ryu and Akuma at 11:30pm was way too good. I think I won like 2/10 just by luck. I nearly cracked when I lost to Dudley on the final round when he was on 0 health! Fucking hell... Seriously Dudley pisses me off so much. Can you like do his exrush punch thing and juggle combo like 4 times if it hits finishing with Ultra? That's fucked.  ;D Quite a few good games. Got spanked by Chun Li and Sagat a bit.

Yeah, you can do his ex-duck straight all day long. Unfortunately it isn't too easy to do (and character specific at mid screen). After that many duck straights the ultra doesn't do much. It's all about the stun though, straights do a base of 200 stun. Dudley = Zangief with combos and no command grab, all about getting in, sometimes he just can't and rolls over.

I'll bring my E.Ryu and Duds during the week!

Play like shit today probably too tired, keep dropping combo, error execution and getting too predictable. GG to the players btw 4pm to 7pm today. To the players:
Cody - I keep pressing button--> eat big combo from you
Ken - My Footsies are inferior compared to you though I play Bison.Your Kara throw/ Shoryuken pressure is too good for me.
Dhalshim - Lack of MU knowledge..keep doing random stuff. Some of the matches i won purely by luck.
Yun - =.=..I am so FREE for you.
Others - GG

 Feel so demotivated now ..  :(

GG to a guy that looks like PR Rog, maybe it was him. He played Ryu and it was at another level. Sweet jesus. My E.Ryu got fished for a CH cr.mp, cr.mp, cr.mk xx ex-hado, U1. Went out in style. Still managed to footsie for 10 seconds and got 2 throws, but got psyhic dp'd when I tried to dp. Ate Ryu stinky foot jump in too.

Until we meet again pro dude.

Gg guy playing Adon, random jaguar specials and sweep spam getting rounds, lol I so bad.

Abel/Ken guy, we met again. Good games.

Posted this in PC feedback by accident LOL.

We need that 8th machine fixed. Wish I can plug my fightstick in lol.
Today I had a short watching session, Evil Ryu guy who used to main Ken, I'm leveling off some of your plays. Dash under crossups and cr.hp after FADC hado for a bit more reach. I never looked for dashing crap cross ups or paid attention to myself doing it. I also notice you buffer the SRK motion non-stop after lk.tatsu. Guess that works ahaha

That is all. Didn't get the chance to play XD

Ibuki and E.Ryu around 6pm were unchallenged. Adon guy I watched, not sure how to place you, you look a bit mashy and hands were all over the place/had such huge distance from buttons after doing stuff, but you pulled unlikely wins and had a small streak, I am confused lol. Saw some footsies and a poke end to Ibuki. Bison guy stop blowing up, E.Ryu got in so free, just block. A stun every round.. damn :(

tldr: I analyse alot, good play fellas.

Those sticks are dodgy at the best of times. My issue now is that despite buttons working, the surrounding base are sometimes broken, and they tend to dip to one side. Can't really blame that on the staff though good maintainance would see those buttons being replaced with new ones.

Indeed those cabinets need some button work!

GG's Chun... 30+ wins and still going when I left. Guy guy, Sagat guy and Bison guy, pretty solid!

@chun: Too bad we didn't get more games, would love to get in on that Chun! Howdy to bort, Pope and Renzuo.

Is that you Meeks? I need to attach names to you guys :D

Until we meet again!

Yeah that was me. I was watching you style with e.ryu and Dudley and was very impressed. I was also keen to get more games against you but the timing of our games just refused to coincide lol

I'll most likely be there again tomorrow so if you're there I promise to have a bit more of a chat :)

Hello. Just dropping by. Just wanted to express some....

BUTTON RAGE!!!!!!! Confirmed that 3 of the 'working' machines have absolutely horrendous buttons with their own minds (old news for some).

Wanted to have meaningful games with the strong showing there but that just didn't happen. It was like going into a fight with no arms and one leg. Feeling so retarded today, dropped links, poking with the plinked buttons... pride hurt. /end rant

Petition for better/more cabinets!! 12-way AE2012, yes please. GG's though!

It looks like as of today the 8th machine is back running BUT from what I noticed it's not networked to the other machines AND I don't think Evil Ryu or Oni are unlocked yet. Some unknowing guy used the machine and told staff it wasn't connecting to everyone else but they didn't do anything about it.

Sometimes I really wonder what's going on with management. They get 2012 AWESOME, but still have the same old same old crappy sticks and buttons which as Gamogo said wouldn't cost much to fix the problem.

I guess they care more about these players:


Than these players:


Anyway the machine on the Pitt Street side 2nd from the Tekken machines LP stops working about 1 in 5 presses. Sure I could of told staff about it but wasn't in the mood today. I admit I've been lucky some days and a staff member has fixed buttons straight away but other days they either never get round to it or look at you like a complete idiot, "What is the problem? It's working for me" is the usual staff reply.

Sooooooo maybe others should report here what machines they are having problems with so we know what machines to avoid.

The only three machines worth playing on are the two furthest to the right, facing George Street, and the one closest to the Tekken cabs, facing away from George St. One of them has a major sound and loading time issue though. The other machines feel are pretty mehh.

GGs to Rob and Kenshin tonight. Really fun games. And the Dictator/Abel/Rog player too.

Went into the arcade yesterday to kill some time waiting for people and sat down and played SF for the first time since vanilla, absolutely no idea what I was doing + never played on stick before. Luckily I was at the cab that wasn't linked to anyone  :P

Of all the characters Makoto easily stuck with me the best! I think I caught the bug now though. If you see a Makoto losing to CPU that doesn't know how to combo or ultra, say hi  :P

After class I always walk from UTS to Town Hall instead of Central for the exercise, so i usually pop in for a bit to watch some matches :)

I am not hard to miss.. I always have a beanie plus backpack on and headphones with a big ass chrome sennheiser symbol around my neck. The only problem is that i never take the games seriously so i waste my money constantly doing the same mixup no matter what for 2 games so the dude can learn how to punish it etc

Damn i wish we had the card system over here :( But then again it might risk having the price bumped up to TTT2 prices ... *shudder*

I pop into GWs either on a Wednesday or Friday (or both) if I can find the time to. I'm usually gone by about 5-5:30pm though. When Rob does grace GWs with his presence, he is usually there from about 5 onwards. Don't know about others on here.

GGs Rose player. Final round, your whiffed dp.. my cr.mp didnt come out, it was literally a Gouken whiffed tatsu and the button decides to die there. Ahhh /slams face to cab. Close games, closed out by your Ultra.

Rose U2, so nasty. Trying to remain composed and surgical with normals is so hard against the whirly death globes. And charging focus attack at sweep range then dashing into my backdash fuuuuuuuuu. lolol

Only had one game with the Gief there but I can tell I will grow to hate you too :D

PS: What's with the price increase - $1.20?!! I expect 8 new cabs now!! I got a card with $5.50. Sat down and saw the price. No wonder the cashier guy said 'Five fiftyyyy~?? Okay nps' Bastard. lol

I can't stand the loose sticks (there is a "that's what she said" joke in there somewhere) the most. Some of the buttons have crack "surrounds" so if you double tap everything it can actually make your fingers a little tender constantly hitting the edges.

Maybe if the machine printed tickets the owners would actually give a shit :P

On a side not, i'm not sure what the legalities are to this, but maybe printing a few flyers and leaving/sticking them on a machine or 2 informing of the next YSB ?

They now have a short stocky little asian dude (probably on minimum wage) running around pretending to fix the cabs, to create the illusion that everything on the maintainance front is just fine and dandy. They can now justify the price increase ...

I've had a really fun week at GWs this week. I've enjoyed learning Rose with Rob, and we had some great and intense matches (and also some fraudulent performances from my part), so hopefully we'll continue that rival, and continue to learn from each other some more in the following weeks if you're not too busy with work.

Also met some new people. Shoutouts to Chris, Kiang?!? (I think that's his name), and that guy who plays Dan and Guy (Sorry I forgot your name). Really a great bunch of dudes.

And Vince, I can't believe it's taken this long for us to put names to faces, but finally got to meet you. Pity, we didn't get to play any other games, but hopefully next time we'll get an opportunity.

GGs to all  ;D ;D

GGS Meeks, and Vince.  Meeks our matches are so close , love the chun vs ibuki match up , you push me to the limits.  That's the only way to improve.

Still loads to learn with Rose but she's very fun to play. 

The Dan guy is awesome, he has loads of knowledge, but i didn't know his name either.  And to the Dudley/Hawk guy, you're getting better and you have loads of potential to play even better.

His mate is even worse. The sight of him molesting the cabs violently is frankly ... quite disturbing. One can only assume that they are the ones responsible for the terrible state of the cabs at GW. After watching them play, I feel as though maybe I should cut the GW staff some slack. It's not their fault Neanderthals are treating the machines like punching bags.

Hrmm bald aussie guy... is it a Ryu player that plays extremely scrub like? Full screen tatsu's, mass jump back, jump forward stuff?

I vsed a guy on PC that plays EXACTLY the same, wallahabibi or something, I do believe it's him. I could be wrong but the playstyle IS EXACTLY the same, throw attempts, range of tatsu, where the tatsu breaks in the air lol.

Haha, this sounds hilarious and explains a lot.

It says a lot about the limp-dicked synapses of people who feel the need to swing on arcade sticks like rabid fucking gibbons and mulch the buttons into the control panel like folks pounding corn.

Then again, it is Galaxy World. Such actions are often required.

Unfortunately, no one working there has the balls to do anything or maybe even reach out to any authority figure who can threaten the presence of these apefools. Ironically, with the state of the world as it is, it's difficult to do something about it no matter how compelled you are to do so, in the likely event that you could somehow get hurt for trying to do the right thing. And these jerkbags don't look like the kind of people who might react agreeably to warnings about their misbehaviours towards arcade machinery.

Guess we'll just have to settle for the half-working loose sticks and broken buttons.

GG's, burnt $7.20, the competition is pretty strong, the usual guy that plays the shotos is there, he is always impressive, only got one game with him and he had a damaged cab. Damn.

Dan/Guile/Guy (hit and run playstyle lol) player was there, also a really strong Chun there today (my Ex snake strike fail lol). The person using Dudley/Guy had some bad luck, I seemed to guess right when it mattered quite a few times. 4 of the cabs there are good. If they were better I'm sure a lot more people will play.

Also I saw a sign for half price weekends? Might go on a binge at that time, didn't know about that.

Say hello, I'm Rufus/Duds/E.Ryu/Gouken that mass plinks between rounds and has dramatic reactions to random play/mistakes. :)

I will drop by next weekend and teach you kids how to play SF. I will be incognito and using secret characters no one's seen me play before. If there is a guy there who looks like he's trying to look like someone other than who he is, that'll be me, but you won't know it.

Wow that chun player. 60 wins? Seriously?


Must've been Meeks! I'll be bringing my Rufus to deal with those Chun Li's! My brand new fat man!

I normally consider the character ass but he's almost like a Xian with his knowledge of the character, and how he makes low tier characters good. Sorry Meeks I was eavesdropping on your conversation with that Dudley player lol

ps. if you plan on leaving, I think the best thing is to let others win. It's a waste of credit for the other player if you win then leave.

CFR mained Seth for the longest time, but afaik, he's playing far more Blanka and Gouken these days. I think he may have dabbled in Oni.

Yeah he also used Blanka and Seth on me. He said his main was Fuerte but his Seth was his strongest I would say.

It is quite coincidental.

GG's Meeks and Dave. My fight money!!! I had a ball, until next time!!

What I've learned:

Don't throw out Rufus cr.hp against veteran players.

Commit to a plan, spamming normals at different +/- frames can only get you that far.

OS can only get you so far (even if inputs don't fail lol)

Read and commit to what you decide!

Get them punishes on! Whiffed air attacks, I suck at blowing up landing frames.

Level links up.

Playing for those 2 hours I learned a ton. Fundamental players still eat me alive. lol

Do you try to throw your opponents as soon as they land from a whiffed air attack (only for the opponent to tech in time)?
Its common habit which alot of beginning~intermediate players suffer from.

Try to always be on point with your anti airs with Cr.mp, st.hp and ex snake strike. (Chun jumps are pretty floaty so you got more than enough time to react and land full hits).

Get into the habit of punishing whiffed air attacks with st.lk -> st.lk -> hitconfirmed into hp xx tornado OR target combo ultra. (these will hit if you do it in time, if blocked you can still continue pressure).

You can still use cr.hp when Chunli has super/ultra, just make sure you dont use it when she has back charge. Throwing it every now and then is pretty useful for baiting out fireballs, jumps and focus attacks due to the move's long recovery frame. Like in all things, use in moderation.

Against characters with really good back dashers like rose/chunli, its a prob good idea to start getting into the habit of always buffering cr.hk OS inside the hit stun of your front low/mid height dive kicks. It'll save you a ton of grief chasing them bitches :)

Level up and give my boy Meeks hell for me  ;D

Nah i believe you'e about -4 or something frames once you land from a whiffed air attack.
In sf4, the window timing to tech a throw is about 5~6 frames (dont quote me on that, but its something like that - thats why you can delay tech).

With that in mind, you can punish the landing frames with a 3 or 4 frame normal (st.lk, cr.jab etc... even easier if you got a character with a 3 frame normal), but if you try to throw them (3 frame) they'll be able to use that tech window timing to tech you. Try it in training mode and see for yourself.

Post by: sojiokitaau on July 25, 2012, 12:28:34 AM
No, you are right I'm sure. That throw thing is a hard habit to break in many ways, not just after a whiffed air normal, but also I find myself punishing whiffed DPs and such with throw when a simple 3 hit combo would take the round.

for sure. it took me a while to break that habit. i think it just comes from mentally disciplining yourself. maybe a good way to start is by playing some really low level players who are likely to throw out DPs on wakeup, then bait and punish until it becomes a natural reaction, rather than something you have to think about. 

with chun, i now pretty much always punish with cr. hp xx legs or sweep depending on distance (and the move that i'm trying to punish), and i think a lot of that can be attributed to playing lower level players in ranked.

At first I wasn't sure if it was you, 2 dropped st.hp links (nah can't be Meeks!), but then 100% afterwards.. ahhh I also started jumping (needlessly) again lol

Option selects were cast properly today!! 2 of them! But all blocked!! Sad face.
Not meaty enough I guess :(

GG's guys! Yun player. Damn, got up kicks? :D

PS: I sat in training room and also CPU'd against Chun for God knows how long lolol

Looking forward to more Rufus beatdowns  :p: Keep levelling up big fella.

I hate Yun so much  ;D Not to take too much away from that guy though, he played well, but damn, his stuff is so safe ... grrrr!!

Having trouble with dive kick OS sweep. With ultras and special moves, even jumps it's fine but sweep refuses to work. Can't combo it at all. It works with heavy jump ins but not with dive kick.. :(

Worked on jab, OS sweep with Rufus and Ryu. One day I'll OS everything, atm OS making me eat a lot of DP's because I get into the momentum.

Freerider, was that your Gouken/Fuerte?!

Good stuff - I also hope you didn't hear my salty comments hahaha Don't take any of it to heart. I make retarded comments to make light of the situation sometimes - shoutouts to Maxse (Dat big homo russian dude) ;D

And to all the other dudes I played against that I either don't know too well or have forgotten to mention. You guys know who you are. Play again soon.

Last time I was in Japan I made the mistake of going into the arcade at around lunch time after drinking all night, completely wasted.

Next time I went in there sober I got a lot of nasty looks from the staff.

GGs to all the usual suspects. Maxse your Rufus continues to impress. Scary how you improve on your matchup knowledge over 24 hours. Gonna hate playing against you in the next few weeks lol

Falco - That infuriating Gief ... grrr! I mean that in the best possible way  ;) So solid.

Rob - So fun to always vs your Viper. That comeback was so godlike. Profound sadness. Wished you brought out Ibuki earlier  ;)

Dave - instant win button wins again  ;D Keep baiting brother.

Guy/Dan player - you focus backdash like a crazy maniac. You should probably stop abusing this so much. GGs otherwise.

Ikuya - such good patience/defense and footsies. I need so much focus against you.

Some Random - Always fun matches. GGs

Let's do it all again soon  ;D

Just wanted to say the cabinet on the furthest right facing out to George Street is my favourite!

Please treat that machine extra nice.

oh and is ikuya the ken?

Yes, he farms counter-hits so well.

There was another Ken playing an hour-ish before him and that guy was even crazier/more shameless with the baiting, his ones involved many setups into shoryu. When he has meter, don't tech/press buttons -__-

Greetings y'all, it's Dave (Dudley/T. Hawk player) this is my first post on OzHadou, pretty excited to now be a part of this. Had fun tonight, good games to all the guys I played:


Ben - I know there's a glitch regarding Chun's low short against Dudley, I'll figure it out one day.

Max - Anti-air ultra, do it!

Rob - For starters, I need to take some serious time learning the Ibuki/Viper setups.

How come you have two names Dave?! Welcome aboard!

Looking for anti-air ultra weakens my footsie power by 100%. Maybe when I have a huge lead (wait I won't have U2 then... unless I focus a lot) and people get antsy lol

ggs Meeks, Falco, Ikuya, David, and the other David and everyone else i don't know your exact names.

I wish Falco we coulda had more games, but food will always come first haha.  Thanks for the ggs.   

Thx Meeks, your Chun spacing so good, especially against Viper.  After using Ibuki and Rose (especially Rose) I feel lost using Viper, but you're right.  That range outside chuns crHK is quite bad for viper.  I need to revisit her again and figure out what to do at ranges , maybe even doing nothing is not such a bad thing with her.

David, there are many setups , viper doesn't have that many setups , ibuki has about 10000.  I can teach you some of them and what to do next time i see you

Post by: thirdeye (Ikuya) on August 03, 2012, 11:23:50 AM
someone said he is a Japanese but i never talk to him.
He is always run away so it is chance when you wanna practice OS against back step and back teleport.  If you can OS, then he will stop using escape move and start using mash throw, cr.lk(down tec), super, and ultra.  I think Rufus is easy to win this part. 
If he choose block ur light move twice(cr.lp cr.lp with OS sweep), he will mash back dush again in middle screen.  Then u can do keep offence or push him to corner.  even front dash is work to him.
in addition, after he start blocking on wake up, you can do frame trap.  his down tec timing is not good.  i think just use EX Messiah kick beat everything.
also he always use throw after his cr.lk sliding.

how to get in against Dhalsim? i want to know lol

With Rufus it's not that hard, not against me anyway. Just instant air dive kick your way forward, timing it so you come down on any extended limbs. Plus if you have meter random EX messiah. What can Sim do to punish that, st.HP? So what, you just covered half the screen and are just outside the range Sim can hit you with any combos. Good trade for Rufus.

With Ken, FADC through the medium and heavy limbs, once you get into range, start roflcoptering. It's actually really hard for Sim to deal with if you get the trajectories right. Obviously, Sim's b+MP and up blast beat the roflcopter cold, but the question is will the Sim be ready to use those AAs? Usually not, since you're coming at a distance that would normally require b+HK or st.HK, plus the up blast needs to be timed fairly carefully otherwise you can wrap around. The trick is to condition the Sim by jumping in with just HK (a very good aerial normal anyway) it's OK if you get hit a few times closing the distance, worth it, then once you've trained Sim to expect j.HK, go for the roflcopter. It's always a WTF moment for the Sim player. And as you know once you are inside kara throw range it's game over for Sim, just need to have at least two bars of super. Random light DPs are good too. Again, Sim's only punish is st.HP. I would be willing to eat 2 or 3 of them to get one random knockdown.

Post by: maxsze90 on August 03, 2012, 11:37:26 AM
Ah, just had dinner with friends. Couldn't resist dropping by when I'm around now lolol

I did a few 'random' ex messiahs to get in, a few OS' worked, but I wasn't sure which to use when I didn't have ultra. Ex messiah worked as an OS when he tele'd, once I got close he liked to backdash after a block but I failed to OS sweep those :(

You have to walk a tiny bit at a time, when he throws fireball just walk towards it, delay the block at the fireball. Focus anticipated pokes or jump when you expect his 'slower' pokes. All about slowly grinding your way in. Having said that, the Sim was still so strong, anti-airing was so solid.

I can't help but talk shit sometimes, nah nah but all jokes aside, just wanna say thanks to you and Ben, you guys have taught me alot about defense/spacing and I'm still getting the hang of baiting, I think its starting to come through here and there, so cheers to you guys. Also, good matches to all the guys whom I've yet to get the names of:

The Ryu/occassional Dudley player who is now using Dan, and the Guy player I play with during the afternoons.

Lol I seriously thought you baited that cause you walked back into it. I was like damn I lose but somehow I got the throw on you. Other than that you're realllllly solid with chun li every round with Sakura was nearly a perfect for you haha.

Thanks to everyone for being friendly and having a chat with me while ive been up here in syd.I dont think ill have a chance to go to the arcade again before i go back to adelaide. GGs to everyone i played.

Meeks - Nice chun man. its unfortunate for you i get alot of chun practice against renzuo, bort, skullatorNZ(although not him recently, i think he got mad at me when i tried to do this retarded taunt ultra thing :( ) and a few others :) why are there so many chuns?!. he was telling me that you use to talk alot about the character with him. i still cant stand that match up, it drives me nuts.

Nostalgia - Keep at that dudley, the matches were getting closer and closer although t hawk aint bad against gief. if you didnt know, for some reason t hawk grab beats gief grab clean all day. So you can just stand right next to him and do spds and it beats everything including u1 cept backdash and jump. and wtf at you just going under all my guy elbows..not happy

Rob - I was so sad that time i was on a win streak and didnt have any money on the card left and you beat me. but then i felt better almost immediately when i came back and did the same thing to you haha. I think youve got me out footsied on the ibuki at the moment, i clearly need to work this match out alot better. The rose.. i dunno some games im on point with it and feel in control of the matches we have like on wednesday..grabbing the slide all the time etc but other times...you had my number on friday for sure. C viper feels so much easier then those other two :).

Ikuya - best ken ive come across so far, i love that you play right in my face and i love the footsie game that we play in our matches, i still need alot of work in the footsie department  but i think i can make a good match of it at the moment. That ultra you got me with in our last game was so bad. But its ok because i remember that time i just did a random u2 in the air to catch an early jump of yours and for some reason you did a backdash so...equally dumb wins haha.

Maxzse - we already talk on steam so suck it. Im glad you beat that other gief while i was watching..otherwise...all respect gone.

AtomicX - Keep working at that bison...ahh another match up i dont like.

Ill definitely have to come back and play some more games when i come back to syd.

Yo Falco! man, there's a Guy player who frequents early in the afternoons, and he loves doing the bushin flip elbow/power bomb, that power bomb is a nightmare sometimes, but I just recently discovered that you can simply crouch, but then you have to deal with a high/low afterwards, my experience with Guy is that there is a certain amount of guessing involved. Meeks and Rob had a bit of trouble dealing with that Guy player also. I didn't want to switch to Hawk, although I hear that it is in his favour, I still wasn't comfortable bring him out, also as hard as i is for Dudley, I like the challenge, it teaches you when to and not to press buttons.

No wonder this matchup feels more even than it should be hahaha Naww ... I like that you know this matchup really well. I get too comfortable with this matchup sometimes and like Maxse, I need to earn the favourable matchup (dammit Maxse .. your philosophy is rubbing off on me. I don't like it!  >:( ;D).

David you're improving a lot, keep up the good work, and we will send you the invoice for the tips, 10% off so should come to around $400.

And that Ryu/Dan player is Kenshin. If you're reading this dude, nice chatting to you today man. So easy to get along with and just overall good guy. Ohh ... and not a bad dan  ;) haha I kid. Awesome Dan  ;D ;D ;D

I know lol you got good revenge, I only had $2 then you beat me haha.  It's weird I've been using C Viper the longest but I am slowly playing worse with her since using Ibuki and Rose.  Ye Ibuki has pretty good normals, and the Tsumuji's can be a bit of a problem for Gief.  Rose is also kinda like the Chun matchup for Gief I would imagine, but not as bad.  U1 really helps her in that match to zone and punish.

Really good playing  you, you've put up some really ggs for us at Galaxy, best Gief I've played in Australia for sure.  See ya next time

Farewell Falco, it was great playing with you man, I was playing Hawk over this weekend trying to play better footsies like you do with Gief, Hawk's normals aren't as good though I think, man it'd be awesome if you lived in Sydney so we can all get more Gief experience.

Hahahaha, that maybe true Ben, but my smack talk will never be as good as Chun's low short. I'm finding it that I have same problem with Guy's C.LK, need to work on blocking low.

Farewell Falco, it was great playing with you man, I was playing Hawk over this weekend trying to play better footsies like you do with Gief, Hawk's normals aren't as good though I think, man it'd be awesome if you lived in Sydney so we can all get more Gief experience.

Hey Bif63r, are you the Cody user?

No I use Ken and learning Yun to cp Chun haha. but very scrubby still. Meeks said Yun is a very bad matchup for him so I hope to get to a good level so next time I don't get body by him.

No to hijack the thread
But speaking about the Chun Yun match up, how's Chun and Yang
I think it's in my favor (Yang) but I struggle so much, especially since the Chun players I play are definitely better players than me
So, is there things I should watch out for? Or aim towards in this match up?

Approach by ground. The strong Chuns will absolutely devour your jumps if you do it too much or are baited to jump. That already ensures you last a lot longer in the matchup to move towards Chun. Block fireballs late by walking into it.

I'm going by my Rufus experience. Threaten with your buffered slash. Build meter for ex-get ins. I think Chun does a lot of damage off your mistakes, otherwise she can't really blow you up too badly...

Try to bait out ex-birds, or do setups that outright beat it. I think moving her to the corner is always a good plan, weakens her fireball game and gives her no space to work with so she's forced to take risks in getting out. Reactioning her flip kicks just ain't working, I've learnt to just block it now. She's also at an advantage when she does lvl 1 FADC to you and after blocked legs I wouldn't challenge with a poke either.

It's probably a bit more even than you think. In my experience anyway. If anything, it probably only favours Yang ever so slightly, only because when he does get in, he can get Chun to the corner where she's very vulnerable and her options are more limited, but he does have to work hard to get her there.

I don't know if this is technically true, but it does feel like Yang's jump trajectory feels slower and more floaty, so his dive kicks aren't entirely as effective as his retarded brother. His super is also not as threatening as his retarded brother, and he doesn't have a retarded s.mp poke like his ... well ... retarded brother.

Overall, Yang is just less retarded  ;D

Cheers for the input guys

Haha his dive kick is slower
That's why in bluehouse Kilok just DPs every single one lol
Yeah I definitely feel the difficulty getting Chun to the corner, and even then I always seem to let her out because I'm scared of ex bird
Are there things that Yangs do that frustrate you?

lol just bait. And then maximise punish or ultra if you have it. I don't know if Yang actually has a safe jump after knockdown, but if there is, you should learn it. Chun has one of the easiest reversals to safe jump.

Yang doesn't have anything too threatening against Chun except dive kicks, which is why I find the matchup to be a little more balanced. His dive kicks are probably the lesser of all evils compared to all the other dive kick characters, but Chun still suffers greatly against anyone who can change the trajectory of their jumps. Maxse gave some great advice though. Gain ground by walking. I think Yang's walk speed is pretty good, so he can advance on her quite quickly.

I was gonna say, just spam dive kick, seems to work for me with Yun for the most part.

Not sure it works with Yang though, his height restriction is even higher and as you say he's slower to descend.

I think yang's better at reversaling Chun though. His shitty DP is actually useful against her, Yun's amazing DP just sails over spammed cr.LKs, get sweeped. Mash DP, rinse and repeat. Plus he also has the command dash to get away from her BS and unless I'm mistaken his command grab's exactly the same Yun's.

I don't know, it's a bit of a mixed bag with Yun. On the one hand I do play like a moron and get rewarded to some extent, but on the other I'm very limited in who I can beat.

It's not like AE were it was just a case of spending 5 minutes in training mode and start beating players 5 times better than you. It does take a bit of skill to use Yun well.

And I think to play well, especially at a high level like for example the level Kazunoko plays at, you have to work harder than a lot of other characters in the game.

I wouldn't put him in the same category of brainlessness as Viper or Seth, but he has a very simple offense. I would rank him together with Sakura, sort of half ryu-solid and half Viper-derp, but mostly solid.

At least Yun can be fended off and zoned to an extent. Fking Seth and Viper goes in when they want to. Full screen jumps and fireballs of their own. Eww.

here is only place that I practice this game, but I think not enough players/characters at GW.

So I say I want to start some new characters just for fun and improve match up for everyone.
(However If there are many strong players, I may not use subs lol)

plz vote if u guys wanna see my new sub characters! ;D

now I can use...
A Ken(main)
B Ryu, Akuma, Cody, Adon, Oni
C Bison, Claw, Evil Ryu, Guile, Dan
D Sagat, Zangief, Juri
E(almost never practice) other characters

any characters is fine, but I think I don't need to use some characters who other pros use. (I mean Ibuki is used by Rob, also many chun are already in GW...)

Lol Ben that must have been a tough match for you , using Rose against anothers Chun.  Just remember Rose is Italian, and like all Italians, she loves pizza.  Why should that make you use Rose more often..I have no idea.
Jon (AtomicX) showed me some video's of Rose which I guarantee you will make you want to use her more!

Post by: Dr.Hu on August 09, 2012, 10:31:56 AM
I dunno, I think many of you are just too used to my Zangief. TBH, I have a problem with eventually reaching a point of playing really stale, such that people can understand how I'm playing very easily.

It's like the time at one BAM when Nickerz OCVed Henry's team, after that I asked him how he could've lost, and he just said he completely did not expect what Nickerz was doing.

Also to Rob: yes, Ibuki CAN vortex Zangief. There is only one semi-reliable way to escape the vortex, and that is with EX Green Hand, which can get easily caught by neckbreaker. In the matches I play Cypherion, it usually goes down to first hit to keep the momentum forward. Many times he ends up perfecting me, many other times vice versa.

Not only this, Ibuki is probably one of the ONLY characters who can jump-in (kinda) against Zangief. His crouch Lariat doesn't work very well against Ibuki because her body is very small, the Lariat must be VERY delayed. There's a particular match with Johnny vs Aquasilk that uses a similar trick, but I can't find it as Youtube is banned in China.

Speaking of China, so far I'm playin at Beijing Xidan 77's arcade. For now I'm doing fairly well, getting 10-15 win streaks against most of their players, though I haven't been able to play the Beijing SBO rep as he is (obviously) away last week.

It's also funny in that the Beijing guys said something similar: their only Zangief player isn't that good, and overall they just not so familar with the way I'm playing They often fall for setups that I'm sure don't work against you guys anymore XD

Post by: Dr.Hu on August 09, 2012, 10:57:34 AM
Heh, really though, I just want to see how all of you would play against a good Zangief who isn't me. Sometimes it really is just a personal play-type thing, and always playing against one style makes it hard for another style.

A good example is Poongko vs Itabashi: at previously SS I've seen their matches and lament at how frustrating this matchup is. Then I saw a series of games between Poongko and Zangitan, and my jaw dropped at how hard Poongko got bodied in a matchup that I thought was impossible to win. This reflects on how different Itabashi/Zangitan played, especially because Zangitan's style looked EXTREMELY risky (things like SPDing at "impossible" ranges or using very unsafe ways to get close).

Ikuya - Not enough games tonight :( Wish to play your Sagat more.

Rob - Yeah ok I'll leave playing Ibuki to you and my brother. I put out some pretty horrendous performances using her hahaha

united2166 - You're the other Blanka/Honda player? My gosh, I got mindfked really badly in one of those games. Good play  ;)

Some Random - I know he doesn't post here, but I think he's got to have one of the best clutch abilities I've come across. Seems to always pull something special out of the bag when the moment calls for it.

Don't worry David we do have our bad days, I know them all too well.  It will fuel you to perform better next time, don't let it phase you!

George I need to test more on the vortex (with kunai).  I found if i do a meaty kunai, gief can KKK Lariat and beat ibuki clean (lower invulnerability).  If I don't do meaty kunai, PPP Lariat beats Ibuki clean (or back dash then spd).  I can use jump lk to beat gief clean on all reversals, including ex green hand.   I would love to see the setup Baz is using , I will ask him, but need to see it.

Meeks, let's get you on Viper then lol :P  Nah you did okay with her, I was the one who lost , trying that reversal U1 against uppercut FADC .  Keep at Rose she suits you so well.

OMG Ikuya would be a great Gief.  Good balance of "JUST DO IT" and "DON'T JUST DO IT".  lol

I used to play Heavy Weapons a bit on XBL, and I know that he plays the fireball game from full screen to near perfection. With Sagat, I think when you make Chun come to you, she has to take more risks. The tiger knee and s.lk, and s.mk are good tools to use to keep Chun out when she is around mid screen or closer. I dunno, I'm giving very basic advice. Maybe HWs or anyone who is a Sagat player can fill you in on much better tips in the matchup  :P

GG's to whoever played that Guy. We had like 20 sets... after you left I finished the game, 7 empty cabs... After having so many Guy games I've worked out he is absolutely free if he can't get momentum, his reversal sucks too. Guy has to risk slides for knockdown, and you really need to combo the overheads to make it more threatening.

First few games your cr.tech was holding up but then I blew it up when I realised it was the exact delayed cr.tech timing. It really taught me alot about breaking tech, but more importantly to read tech style quickly. I think you also caught on on my CH setups and your reversals came out better. Anywho, well played!

And the Dan player (you got me salty lol) fking fk. Nice setups on wakeups, kept it fresh. I tried too many times to beat half screen tatsu's. I think that's where I gave away a lot of health... :(
Nice dp trades to ultra, neat stuff.

Ahhh and that reversal happy Juri, baiting so much with an apparently dodgey senpusha --> ex senpusha. Lol so gay! Realised Juri's overhead is so trash. Blocking it is easymode.

GG's well played, had to leave. Where are my favourite fighters? :)

Just spam lk/hk during his dk pressure that'll slap the fat barstard out of almost every divekick. Of course throw in a good mix of ex devil reverse and ex p.crusher cant hurt. Matchups in bisons favour dont worry you got this :)

I got hit by a fair few ex crushers.

I completely lost my marbles trying to OS everything lol.

EX-PC sometimes let's you you out of my U2 after one hit and you recover whilst I'm still spinning... Also U2 only hits ex stomp once or twice so you get out too. I should just safe jump your wakeup... lol, I'd get way better punishes than having a an ex-messiah go wrong way, or crappy connect on U2...

Yeah I got a lot of free jump ins, I don't try to jump too far out, but when I do, I think some well placed st.hk, cr.jp, st.mk would've stuffed me. I think you should bait messiah's more, I literally got 95% land rate on them.

Bison has about a billion escape options, so you really have to choose your OS'es carefully. In a lot of cases, sometimes it's just better to try to safe jump his ex pc and then punish ex-crusher (if you have the toolset to do so), or his ex devil reverse on landing. Yeah, then he has that damned teleport (which will always leave you scratching your head as to why you didn't OS ... then you'll remember because he has 2 other get-out-of-jail card options on wakeup that will beat your OS's anyway).

Yep Meeks is spot on. Its pointless trying to OS a Bison with meter.. wayyyyyyy too many escape options to consider.
I would only ever OS bison when he's meterless - since thats when his escape options are limited to backdash/teleport. (OS - ex messiah connects both for u1 follow up).

Rufus doesn't have many tools in punishing ex P.C.
Usually the most you can do is cr.hp (from a blocked point blank P.C) and even then the timing is pretty tight.
After fooling around in the lab, i've recently found the new ex tornado fadc (ae 2012 buff) a good answer for maximum punish. It cost 3 meters though... so yeah save up.

Post by: maxsze90 on August 15, 2012, 10:07:56 PM
I love taking some risks on the OS. But of course it backfires too. XD

Having a lot of trouble with dive-kick OS sweep... I'm thinking of using dive kick OS jump towards in replacement but it seems to be very dangerous. I guess that's the drawback...

Take chun for example. If I dive-kick OS sweep (which will say, hit her meaty as a 5f safe jump timing), would her ex-bird still hit me? I'm confused as to whether:

1. The dive kick will hit her
2. The dive kick hits the ground, because Chun was invulnerable during startup and then Rufus proceeds to block
3. The dive kick hits the ground, missing Chun during invulnerability, but the sweep comes out, meaning I get counter hit by the now active frames of the spinning bird.

(I'm assuming timing of the sweep in the OS hit-stun can actually matter)

I'm totally confused about dive-kick OS sweep. With specials/ultras it's less of a problem, but I'm still confused to what will beat me.

I'm also a bit confused to jumping normals with OS. I'll make it easier by using an example of my jump toward fierce against Cammy using a 5f safejump timing. With OS-sweep, I will block a reversal dp, sweep a backdash and do nothing on ultra/super because of animation flash. That's fine and dandy. But with OS-Ultra 1, I get blown up every time - a dp will eat me alive because I don't think I can cast U1 and block at same time, unlike OS-sweep. I wonder if OS-U2 will be safe then? The casting motion has the block motion in it (most of the time), but I remember zgnoud pointing out that it was the startup time of the reversal verses the startup time of the move you choose. For example, I can use jump in fierce OS U1 against Bison, because EX-PC is so slow.

Now I'll compare this example to a 5f safe jump fierce on Seth. I'll most likely OS-Ex.Messiah against Seth, I'm pretty sure it'll catch teleport and it'll also beat regular dp. But in relation to above point, Seth's dp is 5f, my ex messiah is 11f. Will my messiah EVER come out against Seth dp's? Going by the first example, I believe I'd be blown up as in the case with OS-U1 against Cammy's dp.

To my knowledge, I believe my jump in fierce is hitting the 'invulnerability' frames of the dp, so I am hitting nothing and whiffing. I then land and RECOVER on the ground JUST as his dp begins, but since I hit nothing my Messiah should come out.

I'm sure my mind will resolve these matters in time with more random matches but any input from you guys might help me :)

Like ive mentioned a few pages back, no... Rufus OS ultra/ex messiah startup frame is too slow. If you try to go for it, you'll get slapped by the reversal DP everytime. What you can do is OS jumpin hp -> delayed downback cr.hk. This will ensure your safejump (blocking reversals on landing) followed by a delayed sweep.

This is however, pretty useless against Chun/Rose as their backdash is simply too fast for the delayed sweeps (Especially considering how slow rufus sweep is).

I will start do some anti OS technology that i never use before.looking for that :D
I got a lot of trouble when you do the near divekick pressure, not sure when the right timing to press something. spamming will always be my last option =.=.... Just want to find a legit way to beat that out especially in no meter situation.

zgnoud, thanks for your helping.
so spamming st lk (smartly)to beat near divekick pressure? for st hk I don't have much problem actually, the range is pretty similar to yun's divekick.

Spamming st.HK works on upclose dive kick pressure too... beats almost every single dive kick except for a super high one. Of course you cant always rely on this as spamming either of these moves will leave you wide open to throws and counter hit setups.

This is one of the reasons I prefer yun to Rufus. Yun's jump doesn't go that far and is quick, he doesn't float for long unlike Rufus. So you can empty jump to bait and punish those good anti dive kick normals easier than Rufus. Also st.MP lol.

Yea nice to meet you Maxsze, good to see Rufus at GW. Please kill more people with Ultra 1 as an excuse for me to do raise the Rufus.  ;D  (And GGs to everyone I played.)

Been thinking about my character selections and how there are several things Cody and Sakura have in common. They both have a great counter-hit / frame trap game, both do good damage, both have good to great anti-air and both are really fun to play (for me). This all comes at a cost though as they both have poor reversals so using either character having good defence (especially teching) is paramount.

My defence (or the lack there of) is one of my major weaknesses. I really need to work on and improve my ability to tech. I'm optimistic I can improve my defence though so using Cody or Sakura might be ideal as I will have to learn to defend well or die.

As for Bison I've used him since the start of Arcade Edition. Part my idea and part the recommendation of others. And I can see why Bison was suggested to me as he is a great beginner character. He has a strong pressure game, God like normals and a million reversal options so getting out of tricky situations is no problem. He is also the perfect character to kill other beginners.

Though his weaknesses really bother me. He has bad unreliable anti-air, low damage output, meter is useless for offensive purposes, two useless ultras against good players and no comeback factor. To get to the top with Bison you really need to be passionate about the character and be willing to chore it out hence I put Bison in the "easy to use hard to master" basket.

I don't think I care about Bison much any more and it has showed in the recent YSB ranbat season where I've gone 0-2 in most of the tournaments. Compare that to last year where I did "okay" and got several wins under my belt.

So right now I'm looking forward to using a different character in the next ranbat season. My two major criteria for selecting a character is I have to actually like the "character" and be passionate about them and most important they have to be fun to play.

LoL sorry for long reply, I think too much and I've been meaning to get this off my chest for a while.  8)

GG's Dave and Michael. Such a close final match againsy Rog, so good.

Further GG's to bald Chinese guy who plays Sim... and wait for it:

Chun Li!

Reminiscent of Meeks but so much more air throwy and ground grabby. Countless empty jump air throw, and neutral jump HK's on me which weren't messiahed, uh that was painful, I was mashing like a psycho. :(

Until next week!

for those who keeps wondering who that bald Chinese guy that plays sim is.........

he ain't Chinese for one, he's Japanese but he can also speak mandarin AND English

and he has a name called Masa

he use to come to tournaments back in the GGs days at Central

I've known him since Galaxy world had their first SF4 vanilla cabs the crappy one with the dual screens, two player seats and token operated days.

Good games tonight y'all. Ben, sorry about that last one, I have to resort to those baits in order to beat your Chun, you've played Dudley so now you understand. Masa, always have fun games playing you, I prefer to fight Dhalsim over the majority of the cast. And to the Balrog/Guile player, always fun watching you play dude, again you got me with jab jab into Ultra, that hurts.

to Some Random, I play Dudley and Hawk, also your Evil Ryu is pretty godlike.

Ahh you must be the tall asian dude with glasses yeah? Dave and I made the assumption that may have been you.

I think you probably don't know the matchup all that well. Bison has all the right tools to beat Chun ... (just ask ShangTsung lol) ... you did pretty well in some of those games. You need to make the most of your offensive pressure. Need to have better knockdown mixups. The ex-pc ambiguous crossup is a good one to learn.

who's who that goes gw regularly besides the people i know already?

Well according to Dave, I'm that Chun Li player that nobody respects. Because I play Chun  :( lol ... but you have a very slick Evil Ryu. Everybody I've spoken to is always intimidated by it - that includes me  :P

hahaha nah it was a "good read"  ;D Dudley is only fun when you can get in  >:( He's such a combo monster, but what's the point if he can't get in lol No future for Dudley Dave. Start practising high tier characters. Your recharge frequency demands it  ;D

And oh yeah, gotta love that Rog/Guile player. He'll go in no matter what LOL

Some Random Guy, your hado-anti air game scares me more than any other PC shoto. That E.Ryu st.hk is no joke. After versing you I keep imitating it with Ryu and forget OG Ryu's HK is not as good. I've invested a fair amount of time in E.Ryu but my gameplan with him is weak, OG Ryu is way better imo. It seems when I focus on OG Ryu, my E.Ryu becomes ass and can't FADC a cr.mk hado to bnb. Never got the jab links to DP either.

Where are the Sagat players????

What do you mean by PC shoto?

lol I was a sagat player for vanilla and standing HK was a big tool for him so kinda adopted this to Ryu/Evil Ryu and dp to AA is not that great with Evil Ryu it tends to trade quite often and trading is never good with the shorter life bar.

Experimenting more with Evil Ryu's U2 now, seems to be a great AA with a decent range. Trolled around with fireball fadc baiting a jump then catch with dashing into U2 .. seems fun ;D

Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: maxsze90 on August 24, 2012, 06:06:58 PM
Yes you got me with that U2 bait lol.

I was referring to the shoto players on PC. Normally I don't jump fireballs 2 days after they were thrown but for you I do. Get baited all day. Must be something in the spacing or me being impatient against E.Ryu, or the deceptive range on his AA's.

@Dave: Been practicing Seth and Cammy lol. Oh I have no shame. Ooo there's Akuma too...

But I'm rekindling my love for Dudley. Absolute combofiend, I'll go and bring you some new tech!

Good games today Ben, once again it was that last game. I do feel like some what of a scrub for doing those things just outta the respect I have for you as a player, though I gotta just convince myself that it ain't scrubby, and I can do that quite easily seeing how Chun seems so cheap before Dudley.

@Max, I ain't hatin', am I disappointed? just a little bit, today Ben gave me his opinions on who Dudley can do well against, he stated Cody, Dan, possibly Makoto and that was it! he also considers Seth and Cammy S-Tier characters. If you do go through with Seth, I will fight him, I'm pretty good at calling coin flips, hah.

@Dave - I'd almost think it was flukey if it didn't happen so often, but you're almost making it a skill to bait that whiff punish and then ultra punishing it LOL except when it beats my jabs, that's just unpossible!!  ;D

GG's GWers.

Is the Ibuki/Fei/Sagat guy here? Need to attach a name on you. Mr.Grabby will do for now lolol

Dhalsim appears to be a regular again. Love it. Dudley's a lost cause for that MU imo... unless you land psychic ultras.

@Dave: Need bigger damage! Hit confirms in a jump in!!? I know Dudley air hitstun/blockstun sucks but 2xcr.lp?!!! Need fw.mk too! Otherwise good play, SSB juggles, dayum.

(Dhalsim) you played a lot safer tonight, wasn't able to land many psychic uppercuts or ultra's so good stuff, I need to adapt. Also there was a good Gouken player at around 5-6pm? good games to ya as well.

@Max, I need to work on my execution, the jab helps me to hit confirm better. Glad you liked my SSB juggles, if you know your opponent is gonna do an uppercut during your blockstring pull out SSB, that shit is stylish.

The cabs need some serious maintenance. The amount of communication errors, buttons dying, fail link ups and freezes is kinda dodge. I've just recently got into the SF4 thing at GW and I've only been there 1/10 as long as some of the veterans there, but it's disheartening to see that players have to put up with it day after day (maybe the cabs were great back then). There is a guy there that takes care of the cabs, but I think there are limitations to what he can do and even though he genuinely puts the effort in to repair the cab, the truth is that the management at GW has to make the decision to invest in new cabs and replacement parts.

Yes, writing a post on the state of gaming equipment is quite sad, but SF is as valid a hobby as any other and it's no fun to be inconvenienced by something trivial like the state of arcade cabinets.

If it helps, I'll just keep using E.Ryu/Gouken/Guile at GW. SF4 revenue will skyrocket. But in all seriousness, I think it'd be grand to have small local tournies at GW just like old times!

Hey Afterdeath, good games dude. I was the Dudley player you were versing yesterday. Sorry about some of those dirty tactics I used in that last game we had, EX duck into throw, I needed to make a comeback, screwed up at the very last part (made the mistake of standing 3/4 screen intead of full screen, got SPD'd, hahahah nah kidding), your Zangief is scary and I have to take so many risks, kind of have to with Dudley though, but with the Gief matchup it's more than usual, hope to play ya some more soon dude, cheers.

That Tekken player makes me feel a bit better about dirty tactics. Although you did wash your slate clean when you did that OS Ultra1 on Cody.

Rob, I once saw a match between Ben and another player, Ben was significantly down in life, he got his first knockdown with a throw he then rushes in as the opponent is getting up, mashes cr.lk x EX legs and gets the 2nd knockdown, then rushes in again mashing cr.lk x EX legs and gets another knockdown, guess what he does the 3rd time? yes, rushes in and cr.lk x EX legs x Ultra2 FTW. The other player was decent, so why was he getting hit then it occured to me "ohhhh, unblockable", I mean at first I thought it was Dudley specific, but I've seen him hit you a few times with it as well. Sorry Ben but revealing these secrets helps the community, though I don't know if telling them cr.lk 3x is an unbloackable really helps since there's probably not much they can do about it.

Good games to Kenshin, Michael, Cody player and Dee Jay player.

Yep that can only be explained by it being an unblock able.  The only solution is to lose.  Chun Li is top tier, that unblock able is so good, for some reason Ben is the only one who can do it!  It works against everyone!  Don't you agree Ben??  Unblockable…Chun….top tier etc? :P

Hahaha, ahhhhh Ben... a good player can never truly be "conditioned", it was true that those reversals I threw out were horrible, by the time you thought you had conditioned me I just did that reverse thinking I tend to do often, e.g. go in when opponent has meter and bait when they don't. Also when I did that wake up, it wasn't really wake up, had it buffered on my wakeup I saw you still standing there and I thought to myself *heh fool, he's a goner*. I'm trying to be like Crazy FreeRider in sense where his completely unpredictable, at least when I play him he is, really like it since it tends to throw off opponents, so shout outs to Aaron.

Regarding AtomicX's comment about notifying players... though I'm like Meeks and is there at no set time, I think its a great idea to establish like one or two days/evenings where we all come to GW and play, I vote Tuesday and Thursday (for all of us who like free credits), also I've noticed that Thursday's natrually have a good variety of players who come after work, so thoughts y'all?

Tuesday/Thursday it is. Need to recharge too.

It's Sawnik bewm time. Going to get bodied, but it's ok, free credits.

Look out for a seriously free Guile. My Guile could be compared to how Daigo's Guile compares to Dieminion's Guile.

Game on!

Ugh just played a bit at GW, playing so impatiently.

After having a break from the game, the first person I verse is king mash. Fk me dead, lost like 3/15 games and just got too salty for conceding anything at all. Decent people came a liitle later and it felt much better. In the games though, I failed to block a few hundred cross up tatsus, the one and only time I blocked for tatsu, got hit by fierce. Losses felt so ass, I was breaking even on win/loss but was still too salty. Literally died every round after having a huge life lead when I ate one throw.

Doing stupid shit, dumb jumps, wrong safe jump setups. Missing links like a baddie.

Bad day. Head hurting like a mofo, probably should've just left but felt like catching up with the lads. Catch ya guys another time.

I'm pulling a Dave (lol), needed a vent. Glad you guys didn't see me in absolute rage mode.

Thing is, the decent players were playing legit but I was just not in the zone. So many Ken comebacks. Excuse my wahh, I'm on the rag once again.

Gg's to the players around 4-5, wp. Haven't seen you guys before, the Guile player was really legit, we had one mirror but I feel I'm heading in the right direction.

Ikuya not much Adon experience, but his style is similar to Cammy, but Cammy is stronger overall for sure, she's so good.  Those normals, and damage, and ultra opportunities … ridiculous.  I think she is top tier, alongside Fei Long. 

About Jon's comment, I think Tue/Thu are 2 good days to go galaxy.  I will try to go those days. 

GGS to George, Charles, BKSama, Jon, and Sahn , and everyone else. Good to see the Cabra boys there

Yeah Max, sounds like what happened with me, were you just mindlessly swiping your card between those games? I know that feeling, Ben and Rob witnessed how salty I was the night it happened.

Man, there was a really good turn out tonight, wished I could have gotten some games in, wasn't there for long and was unable to get a good cab. Hopefully Thursday.

Hello mellow people.

I AM SO SALT.  >:(

Links dropping so bad. I blame the cab that Meeks was using. Heavy punch was.... FUUU. Ahhhh that feeling when you're smiling at hit confirm only to be DENIED. My hatred of losing is growing daily. I'm a promoter of play to get better but I absolutely hate losing when I do everything as well as I can. Fking fk fk! Dave witnessed the salt.

Otherwise GG, there were so many good players at GW today, I'm thrilled to have had so many meaningful games.

Ok, so the pro Sim guy is Japanese apparently, ahaha we had good sets, I'm counterpicking you so bad lol I'll stop calling you bald Chinese guy XD

Let's see, gg's to Dave, Ben (Damnit!), Rob, Some Random, Vega guy, Mike(? Guy I sat next to early on), Atomic, Afterdeath, Guile and Rog guys. Good stuff, I swear we had fewer players like 2-3 months ago when I entered the fray.

lol I concede, that game was yours. But at least my dollar lasted a few more games  ;D

Saw unprecedented numbers today definitely. Much more than I'm used to. Had to wait 20 minutes for one of the cabs that I usually play on (Yeah I'm a cab snob. I steadfastly refuse to play on the 4 left cabs :P)

GGs to the usual suspects (and then some).

Afterdeath - You got your fair share of games against Chun today, and believe me, I never look forward to playing your Gief as much as you never look forward to playing Chun lol But having said that, you play this matchup incredibly well. Enjoyed our games immensely.

Dave - For someone who used to hate the shoto matchup, you're definitely climbing that hill with a lot more confidence. I saw a few new tricks I was very impressed with, but work on the damn Chun matchup hahaha It's not impossible, despite you thinking the cr.lk is unblockable  ;D

Rob - Don't be too hard on yourself. I think you should be at peace with the Viper character even though you think she's BS sometimes. But that win was thoroughly deserved. Really enjoyed our games. And play more Chun !!! ;)

Ricky - Chun mirror can be weird, but try not to be too hasty (yeah I should really take my own advice sometimes). Still, I like your Chun very much.

To that Joseph dude who probably doesn't post here. GGs, and thanks for the chat. GGs to everyone else whom I may have forgotten to mention.

Ben - Good games man. I think that matchup will always be a huge hurdle for me/Dudley, looking at all the Dudley and Chun matches that you and I have played, the matchup seems to be 9-1 so far. The times that I do win is when the risk pays off, and in this fight Dudley must take those risks in order to win, he cannot excel in this match based on footsies alone, as long as Chun has that cr.lk and s/cr.mp it just makes things so difficult. I also think that her fireball is really good in this fight due to it being slow, it kinda shuts down the option of Dudley's ducking, therefore you're able to control the space so effectively. Besides from my defense being pringles at times I don't think that I'm playing the matchup wrong, as in I know what's going on but its seems nearly impossible to prevent certain demise. I don't doubt that I can excel in this battle and the last thing I want is to be coming across as whiny. I've always been a 'small steps learner' kinda guy so I think it'll be from more time and experience playing you that I'll get better, same goes for fighting shotos, in the mean time I need to sharpen up my defense, most times you'll have me so focused on the ground game that when you jump in it's like I forget I have s.mk.

Rob - playing you really helps me focus on my footsies and defense, though playing Ben helps with defense as well but its that f***en 'handshake' that gets me everytime! I think confidence + good defense plays a huge part against Viper, same goes for Cammy.

Max - That cab got to ya so bad, I saw the salt! don't beat yourself up dude, you're a really player and with some of the nicest execution I've seen, you've inspired me to try different links and combos, though I haven't gotten the opportunities to use them so much yet. We all have days like this. Also just some random stuff, youtube "Mike Ross vs Mago" should be the first result, really good match. And youtube "welcome to America ssf4", select thumbnail with Akuma's raging demon... for one of Chris Hu's greatest commentary moments.

Afterdeath - I look so stupid when I take risks and they don't pay off against Gief, I need to improve my footsie game with Hawk. Goodluck in that tournament in Brisbane man.

Good games to all the other guys I vs'd, Xavier, Ikuya (didn't know Adon's jaguar kick is safe on block), Guy player from the afternoon, and Mike, was a pleasure meeting you, its rare to see a player who is solid and consistent with the variety of characters that you use.

Not sure if it's due to people reading this thread but the turn out for this Tuesday and Thursday was really good, let's keep it up guys.

In regards to the fireball game, you almost have to have a kinda pre-emptive reaction. Because her fireball is so slow, it's like Guile's where he has plenty of time to react to jump ins, though Chun's is the lesser of all evil. She actually has terrible recovery on her fireball, so if you're able to read it, jump at pretty much the start of her fireball animation rather than after the fireball actually leaves her hands. It's almost like reacting ultra through fireballs. Keep at it bud. You'll hone those skills and refine them over time  :)

Good to hear, you've really come a long way since I first met you, and your links are becoming more consistent = solid dudley. The thing that most people realise is that while Viper has some massive damage and stun, she also has big flaws defensively and she can be exposed if somebody knows how to play against her.

I think you show some good poise when playing, but like any new character you are learning, you are always going to be subject to learning how certain matchups work. Hope you get out of character selection limbo soon and find a main  :) GGs.

GGs Rob. I'm still suspect about whether that Rose u2 setup crosses up hahah ... I'll just say it borders on ambiguous, but showed me how Rose should be played. Thanks for the tips.

Ben I tested the setup, against  Ryu , it's cross up , against Chun it's non-crossup. WTF @_@.  Must be her hitbox.  As ex soul spiral can cause opponent to land at different ranges with rose (depending if it hits at the tip, or closer etc) maybe it affects the balls hitting cross up or normal , really need to test that.

ggs all,

special shoutout to the fellow boxer sitting next to me.
your understanding and implementation of his normals is solid, and your overall gameplan too.
Aside from small execution and defence issues, really just work on the decision making process,
while some high risk manouvres may pay off now and again, only do so when you have scoped out a conditioned habit from the opponent, there were quite a few high risk decisions that i winced at as they obscured your chances of taking an otherwise easily winnable match.

Also we both need to work on that close range DS punish :(.
I swear that punish was a little easier in super

Apologies if i seemed despondent while we played, i take mirror matches far too seriously, but i enjoy them profusely!

@Atomic: Guile is so much fun. I'm sure the Guile/Boxer guy is better than me, there are many things I need to iron out with Guile. He is quite easy to pick up though. I think once you've played a ridiculous amount you can pick up any character quite quickly.

I've been double P'd (I feel so dirty). It's over. I wish the other Yun player played like you instead of doing lunge punch, dps. 5 wake up dps in a row. Throwing ex command grabs everywhere. Dayum.

As always Gamogo, Dave, Ikuya, Atomic and Ricky. GG to Genxa too, only got one game with the Gen and I assume it's your main.

@Ikuya: Saltehh lol, uncharacteristic move drops. I can see the credit swipe rage XD I agree on your point about cr.tech. I'm conditioning you to frame trap so I can messiah! lol but ur right ahahaha

Solid footsies tonight Ricky. Max and Atomic, didn't get to play you guys I don't think. Good games to Ikuya, I sensed the salt from your games with Gamogo during our matches.

And good games to Genxa, thanks for those tips man. I wanted to ask you if there is a safe jump setup after the Hawk's lp.Mex Typhoon? I heard it involves taking a tiny step forward, whiff st.lp then into body splash, heard it shuts down 3 frame reversals as well, I tried it on you but I kept getting up kicked? not sure since I'm still very rusty when it comes to doing safe jumps but if you can clarify this for me it'd be much appreciated. Also with Yun's super in the corner against Dudley, think it was because the super ran out therefore the reset didn't cross up at times, cos I noticed when it did cross up the super was still active? I gotta be more vigilant next time.

GGs gents!

Apologies for being in my own world for most of tonight - I was playing right next to Seiya and even played a couple matches against him until I actually realised it was him! I'm so blind and stupid, haha. Evidently I zone out when I sit in front of a cab.

Also, was I imagining things or did the cabs start lagging out at one point for say, 5 mins at around 9.30? Is that a regular thing? It gave things some ye olde Xbox Live online flavour.

Feels great to play in arcade again.

Max - Actually Gen is my 5th or 6th character, but I really enjoy playing him cause it really helps with footsie game. Yun/Cammy/Abel would be my mains.

Nostalgia - Your Dudley is quite solid! I had to play super super careful.
In regards to Thawk safe jump, I actually don't know hahaha.
I DO have a pretty nasty 2choice setup after lp.tornado though, I can show you next time!

Gamogo - You are shit. That is all.

ggs max.  I know u have many moves but I felt you will do same moves at same situation. or your choice will be less.
Rufus's EX messiah helped your diffence so i couldn't much make good offence, but you can use other choice like back dash/focus back dash/mash LP/mash throw/jumping.  it will be good when you try other character, I mean diffence is not only down tech/mash DP.
I was really salty at Wed because I ate ur Guile's no matar flash kick twice and lost.  STOP IT, its not EX messiah!! If you keep using Guile, try to do solid diffence.

Ggs Dave, I always angry to opponent and me. mostly me. to shit playing and shit cabinet

@Genxa I never know you can do it.... fxxk you I will be careful it more lol

Lol flashkick with no meter is baus! Makes it more likely to hit. It's the same as dp no meter, you really have to pick your spots. I guess right, I get out and it's zone mode again, you block, it's 250+ damage and knockdown. I try to block long enough to see a pattern or to twitch to a slow move. It has such great horizontal range, I footsie with it lol

Rufus has more options as you said, but Rufus (focus) backdash is pretty damn bad, it's really free damage and more so with Ken, he can make that distance again with safe stepkick or kara-throw. Cr.lp is 4f same as cr.lk, I should use this more when I predict kara throw but I rather react to throw with tech, hopefully I can react with instant dive kicks one day. Next time I'll mix in buffered jab and cr.mk and be more spontaneous in situations. I do enjoy blocking for a fair while then busting out messiah.

In corner, next to you on advantage, jumping out is just bad, neutral jumping is bad. I do believe I do too many dive baits mid screen, but I do it against all shotos depending on how strong their AA is.

Will mixup more, I promise. Defence against your Ken is hard work. Frame perfect traps, tight links, crazy yomi, yeah nah yeah. Last few games you blew my tech up, I must trust in reactions and reads on the grab. Until next time!

random flash kick is different of DP. cus one knockdown will kill Guile. 250 damage is not only damage, especially Ken can do jumping after combo and then you must lose charging.  Yesterday I won to your Guile cus I blocked random flash kick.

Yeah Rufus's back dash is weak, I just recommend.  sometimes less choice is easy to prediction next choice or hole round game making.  maybe I will confuse when you start new choice?
Jumping is good if you read my kara grab.  just careful my DP counter>U1.

I think you can beat me more when you know how to game making, let to spend my meter after dive kick, if you have life advantage, just wait my jumping etc..

GGs to all today.

Dave - I finally know that Guy player by first name basis haha he introduced himself. Really nice fella. Felt a bit for him today. He looked a little despondent after our set but I hope he comes back stronger. He really has taken his game forward since the first time I played him.

Also, I think I'm slowly bridging the gap against the Abel/Akuma/Yang player. Either that, or he was off his game today. Had some immensely entertaining games with him.

Something must also be said, of my first meeting with Crying Freeman. I will be the first to admit that in the past, there have been ugly exchanges on here between us and I think we can finally put that behind us. I think it reaffirms my belief that offline, it tends to bring the best out of ppl, and Michael is no exception. It was good to meet ya bud. Maybe next time we'll get some games in.

Peace out!!

Haha hey Ben! It's me Jay, that asian guy who only knows how to play Guy, I was just about to introduce myself! I came across these forums last night after looking up YSB but wasn't sure if you were talking about the same one, but it seems to be so. Thanks David for telling me about the community, I think it's awesome that everyone at Galaxy World knew each other here.

And thanks again Ben for those games. Although you destroyed me 50 times (as usual!) I still had a lot of fun. I'll take your advice to heart about my diminishing pressure  :)

Also, GG to the Yang/Akuma player. It was only a few games I played against you yesterday and today, but your Yang never ceases to amaze me, it's like you know exactly when I'll be pressing buttons.

The infamous CH dp --> U1. I hate it to bits. But it's just like Ryu U1 I guess, can't eat that bait but Ken sells it so well.

Guile having no down charge is so true, I never thought of it like that. I always down charge regardless and just do the most last minute block. I think it's been helping my blocking immensely across the board. Successful flash kick for Guile means a lot, sometimes it's worth it just to gamble the round to reset player positions. But knockdown for Guile does mean you are forced to block afterwards... hmm

As for sitting on life lead, that is a good idea. I don't know why I continue to rush Guile's down after I get like 3/4 bar and just eat one flash kick. I feel obliged to get back in there..

I realise you don't abuse the crossup game that so many Ken's milk for all it's worth. Imo the jumping fierce/ex.tatsu is a true 50/50 that hits me 90% of the time.

Ben, missed ya all week bro. I'ma be working on more fundamentals when I get the chance this weekend and possibly option selects (I need to get Max off my back), so hard to please that guy. Max, glad you approve of my Hawk play, I actually played that quite well if I do say so myself, haha.

The two Ryu players made me so salty. I hate having to deal with turtle turtle, or jump jump jump, and when those things don't work, mash dp mash dp. The difference between that play style and the play style of someone who knows what they are doing (eg Rob, Ikuya etc..) is night and day. I only get enjoyment by playing against the latter.

And BTW I hope the American guy who went to EVO finds his way here so he can go to next YSB.

You just need strong fundamentals and patience against those players. You should get enjoyment versing those players too. Not taking any hit damage is satisfying. Just have strong defense, when you get your knockdown apply setups. Anti air everything, after anti-air reset, walk towards and block, it's a guaranteed dp against these psychos. I get kicks out of those games, you're proving a point to these players that baddies will be bad. They don't adapt or change, nor will they ever get better. Even if I lose the rare game, it serves only to improve me, whilst in their mind they receive a reinforcement that their method of playing is truly paying off.

When you look at it that way, even if you lose, you're really winning, and their win is really them losing.  ;D

Problem is Ryu Jump foward HK can beat Bison's stand HK clean. Guess for anti-air I need more mix of focus back dash and EX psycho crusher. I did too much pre-emptive jump forward MP wiff. So yea my anti air was bad so it just reinforced to the player to keep jumping more. One thing I hate about random players is they might never anti air, then all of a sudden they get a random lucky anti air into Ultra, grrrrr....

Ikuya already talk me through what to do against turtle, got to slowly walk them into the corner and keep them there.

Cr Hp, low PC for AA ?or just block since they cant do much? I am sure they don't do much ground pressure if they are so random. It is more likely they will jump.
I always get life lead and wait them make mistake. There is no point to pressure them in corner since they play it randomly. Plus they can't play fireball game too.
Do some true block string and wait to bait DP? :D
Cross them up a lot since they can't do late DP autocorrect.
Just my thought.

Post by: AtomicX on September 22, 2012, 10:57:54 AM
Thanks for the tips Louisn and 5ivestar. Yea I must use neutral jump mk more. Of course blocking but I hate when a Ryu player gets in my face from jumping in then I'm put into a lock down situation (because I've been holding charge) where they will poke then go for throw or Dp - FADC. Annoying I can't do the same to them as they will always be mashing reversal but yea in that situation I need to bait their DP more. This is why I'd always prefer to anti-air to keep them away from me but yea not always possible.

It's not really to do with being random or lucky imo. I think psychologically, when a player realises he has the opportunity to use his ultra, he is always better prepared for the anti-air than just looking out for the anti-air in general. Another anti-air option is to also use focus, but sparingly. If they catch on to it, you don't want to focus release only for a dp follow up to diminish your grey life and then some.

Yeah I have been really busy this week, so I haven't really had the time to drop by Galaxy World much.

Quote from a recent interview with Dieminion (Full article at http://www.brokentier.com/blogs/news/6609411-dieminions-experience-in-japan-during-sbo-2012%22 (http://www.brokentier.com/blogs/news/6609411-dieminions-experience-in-japan-during-sbo-2012%22)):

Quote
The other thing that I expected and saw from the Japanese players, is that they have total mastery of their characters, something that American players lack greatly. They know all of their setups on knockdown, have sharp execution and immaculate reaction time. So they are actually great players, but why did it seem like they just play "balls out"? This is something that I thought about and broke down since I left Japan. It was like being taught something your whole life only to find out first hand that it was all a lie. I thought about the differences in our scenes and I 'think' I figured it out.

When you compare our scenes, Japan being the arcade casual scene and America being the console competitive scene, you can see differences in our styles of gameplay and why we play the way we do. Japan's arcade scene doesn't allow for long term thinking and figuring things out because you have to play with everything on the line. You're spending money to play and if you lose, that's it, similar to the past arcade culture of America. The only difference now is that they have learned the game to the point where only winning counts now. They have to put everything on the line and play with their HEART and less with their brain. A lot less thinking is involved in Japanese play it seems, it's mostly bold moves one after the other which makes it look as if they are just going in or playing random. Maybe they feel like they have to play with no regrets. Constant courageous play make for a higher chance of 'miracles' to happen in matches, which is what we see often when we watch Japanese matches.

So people of Galaxy World have been playing the correct way all this time! Wait actually the most important line is:
Quote
they have total mastery of their characters
Majority of Galaxy World lack this including myself, just thought it was interesting that Japan has a balls out type of play (like you see at Galaxy World) when you'd expect them to be playing safe ALL the time. Who would of thought?

Post by: maxsze90 on September 25, 2012, 03:51:23 PM
Good stuff. I'm all for bold moves, I think it's all about taking the right risks at the highest level, players like Daigo minimise their risk at all times until crucial moments. With this is mind he forces players to break his defense and he has supernatural ability to punish whiffs, jumps and takes advantage of spacing and knockdowns before he commits.

I believe a few players at GW are not too far from reaching the potential of their mained characters. I think Dieminion's point on playing with your heart and not your brain can only ever be considered optimal when you have reached your potential in execution and MU knowledge. Needless to say many individuals at GW are still growing in this regard.

In comparing the arcade vs console scene, I think this is a very good point. When everything is on the line you have to play true to yourself and trust yourself to make the right decisions. I believe a perfectionist mindset will get you far, it's what I aim for.

GG to all today.

Ben and Rob, the advice you guys gave me about spacing turned out to be tremendously helpful. I'm now training myself to see each opponent's optimum range, and although I've got a long way to go (and Ryus still smack me with cr MK), I think Spacing was the one hidden answer stopping me from improving.

Thanks for the games too Rob. I didn't know you played Cammy as well, those max damage links were brutal.

Also, to the Gouken player with the glasses, I'm sorry for laughing, my intention wasn't to tick you off. Had I pressed a button split-second sooner, your parry would've smacked me hard, so the close call was what I found amusing. Sorry!

And GG again to the Adon/Yun/Cammy/Juri player. Your Yun is relentless, I think if you can improve on those crossup divekicks, you'll be a beast. And stop reacting so dramatically whenever Rob hits you with Ultra, you're making me laugh  ;D

All I know is, whiff punishing with Yang is so satisfying, and hitting those mantis slashes on every hit is awesome. Just before K.O. it's BAM, BAM, BAM!

Johnny Abel's Yang? Naw, if I was inspired, I'd be Abel. Dunno my character select icon hovered over Yang and he is just so much better looking compared to Rufus. That and his mixup is amongst the best and has a solid all round game.

The best thing is, Yang is hard work.

Might have been me. I had to go right when people were starting to show up. Played a Chun-li I just couldn't beat. Forgot Chunli's super can punish st.hk :-\  My brother has mained chun-li for the past 20 years in every sf game ever so I just hate that matchup. I had a blast there though. I feel that I earn the wins that I get and that I learn a lot when I lose. If its a quiet American usually wearing shirts of ridiculous color its probably me. Also I want to get some more games in today. What time is best to show up and have people there?

Edit: Just got back from Galaxy world. Don't know anyone's name yet, but GG's to the bison there. Hard to get in and open up. Killed me in the footsies. And GG's to the Cammy/Adon player. I am clueless in the Adon matchup so looking forward to being able to play you more.

That Akuma/Yang who was crushing everyone and who even beat that Sim who was crushing everyone too. Didn't get to play the sim but ended Yangs 19 win streak. I was the chun that played some Ryu/Eryu/Adon.
I see Meeks plays there too, hopefully I see him there one day and I can have his babies ^^

Yang makes my head explode, 2 full days into him and I've reached salt levels never thought possible.

Execution required is pretty damn high. Can't do hp rekka x 2, FADC ultra on 1p side, can only get it 50% on 2 player side... trying to learn shortcuts and it's slowly working... sorta... other things like juggle kick to instant whiffed divekick to U1, Juggle kick 1 dash instant U1 is pretty whack too. His super is fking dumb compared to Yun's, he has to cancel his normals into specials within 1 frame or something of the normal connecting.

To whoever that actually uses Yang proficiently, my hat goes off to you.

Man I feel like Day 1 Ryu trying shoryu FADC U1. I just realise that is like a 60 frame juggle or something whilst Yang's is like 3 frame. lololol.

I'll keep sticking it out, I want to show some Yang magic at GW.

Wandered in with the gf and had a couple of matches. One guy I didn't speak to and another guy called something like Lucky Hero/Hiro who is apparently from XBL. Heaps cool bloke. Feel bad for subjecting people to horrible play due to STILL not knowing how to use a stick. but arcade is always exciting. GGs to both of you dudes!

Also, introducing myself as Cervix Smasher is fucking awkward.

Also played some DDR. Man, I'm not fit enough to play this game any more. Time to start running again :|

Captain, was that you today playing Honda? I was the one playing Guy. The Honda player was wearing a black shirt, but I remember you saying something about shirts of ridiculous colors, so I wasn't sure.

GG again Rob. Honestly, I didn't expect myself to stop by GW, and certainly didn't expect you. It was fun to also play against your Rose and Cammy. I might come again Tuesday, so hope to see you there!

GG to the Makoto player as well. I only got to play against you 2 or 3 times today, but your matches against the Guile were entertaining to watch.

And Dave where are you? I miss you buddy.

GGS Silhouette, good to see some great players on a Sunday!  Ye I wasn't going to go , but I decided kinda last minute as I was going to gym on the way .   

GGS also to the Makoto and Honda player.  I feel bad for the Makoto player my button stop working (in usual fashion at GW) and he timed out 3rd round as a draw game when my button was being changed.  I asked the GW guy to give you a freebie credit.

Good games Aaron, and rest of the guys I played. Also nice talking to ya Vindk8, hope we can have a casual set one day perhaps at the next YSB, show ya Dudley and Hawk ain't free, hah.

It was cool seeing some new characters being used by the regular players:

Auxide - can't tell ya how happy I am to see you pick up Dudley and how you stuck it out with him through those first few loses, you can see how momentum driven he is once you start getting those wins. Good win against Genxa.

Ikuya and AtomicX - pretty solid Oni and Cammy from what I saw.

Max - your Yang sucks.

Yeah, considering how big SFIV is, I think even two or four more cabinets would be great, but I guess that'd also mean more maintenance jobs for the poor GW staff   :(

Tonight was an interesting experience, I've never seen a crowd as big as that before (since I usually play until around 5 latest). It was great to finally play against some more different characters, instead of just 80% Ryu. Never played against a Gen before, so getting beaten up by the flying old man was somewhat enlightening.

And I think I should play on more broken cabinets that don't have MP or MK. Focus attack is such a terrible habit!

Oh, and Dave, was that you using the Hawk that smashed me to bits? If so, good stuff! I see you're always going to be a very tough match for me  :o

If I'm not too busy, I might come by Thursday too, hope to see ya'll there.

Post by: Nost. ULTRA on October 02, 2012, 11:21:46 PM

Wasn't mine, you were playing Genxa's Hawk. I assume Guy would have a hard time against SPD characters, also not only the character but I find that in general players don't like fighting the SPD.

Don't cry for them. If they did any half decent job maintaining the cabinets, I could muster some sympathy, but they don't.

Hey now, can't 100% blame them! GW gets some of the roughest customers.

I once beat this one guy, who stood up and literally downward PUNCHED the buttons, like, C.Viper style. He then stared at me for 2 seconds and walked away. Those poor buttons.

Lol. That guy sounds nasty. But I've seen worse.

Just last week a pair of girls were dabbling in SF4 and were doing so many 360's and full yanking the crap out of the stick and pushing dem buttons like there was no tomorrow. She reached a point where the stick popped off. I mean, the panel lifted straight off and required an emergency maintenance.

Yesterday I realised there was a seemingly brand new stick on that exact cab.

Sure, there's damage from rage and then there are Zangief players and girls. They lift the cab up from the stick. Funny stuff.

Hey thanks again Ben and Dave for showing up today, it was a warm day, but sure was fun. Ben, I'm sorry to bring in that INSULT of a Dudley, but hopefully, someday, the three of us can have some classy mirror matches like gentlemen.

Speaking of mirror matches, they sure are fun! I really liked it when that one Fei Long user today, picked Guy. I know there's another person who plays Guy and Dudley, although I rarely see him around, truly a shame.

Post by: Meeks on October 04, 2012, 08:03:29 PM
Yeah the day was hot and mucky, but it was good fun. Don't worry, my Dudley too is pretty fraudulent. Only just slightly less than Dave's  ;) Naww I kid. Dave's Dudley is legit. Ultra whiff punishes jabs consistently. That's clearly a skill  ;D

Also, I hope those Yun players weren't too offended by my saltiness today. I know I'm pretty animated and show my disdain for the matchup quite obnoxiously, but I do not disrespect the players who use them. In actual fact, I really like them and find them a friendly bunch.

I think the match of the night though belonged to Dave and that Yun/Ken player. There were some crazy clutch moments in the Dudley/Yun match, and all 3 rounds went down to the wire. Really entertaining to watch.

GGs to all. You all know who you are by now  ;)

Good games everyone: Ben, Yun/Ken player, Jay (even though we only had one match, good job on beating Hawk), Kenshin, Ikuya, had some really games with the Akuma/Ryu player (Ikuya's friend I believe?), Johnny (Abel player), Ricky, Dhalsim player and Genxa.

Ben - think I need to introduce those tactical baits back into my game, notice how I haven't been using it much lately, my reactions have greatly diminished since I've learnt about spacing and footsies, still getting jumped in for free. Need to keep working at it. Also thanks for the One Piece eps man, I'ma be in next Tuesday most likely so I'll return the HD to ya then.

Yun/Ken player - had some awesome games with you, your spacing and overall ground game has improved quite a bit, I can see Genxa's advice coming through in your gameplay.

Genxa - need to work on my defense against Cammy, especially after them knock downs, my defense drops significantly against strong vortex's.

Used Cammy all week and only got a handful of wins. Seriously something must be wrong If I can't even win with top tier. The biggest problems I had was against the turtle style players and Rob. (Though from watching high level Cammy videos last night I should of been doing more derp derp dive kicks).

Maybe Cammy isn't for me? But it's so frustrating I'm *this* close to quitting the game right now.  >:(

Maybe I should just main Dudley and that will be the end of it.  ;)

You're taking more calculated risks on offense Jay, which is a good thing. You played superbly in that last game. Good stuff.

Dave, I think the more we play, the more I realise how much of a mountain you have to climb using both T-Hawk and Dudley against Chun. I wanted to pull out Dudley for a bit but unfortunately I couldn't stay for long.

Captain E. Honda, ggs dude. It was good to have a chat and a few games against you. It's actually good to play a Honda that's not mindlessly abusing butt slams for a change hahah Hopefully we'll get longer sets in next time. I need to learn how to deal with those oichio throw/buttslam mixups on wakeup  :o

Good games everyone: Ben, Jay, Captain (nice chatting with ya dude), and everyone else I played.

Ben - I'm not gonna put the blame on Dudley anymore, I just have to keep working at it. I refuse to give up on maining Dudley, I know he has what it takes to be a strong character, I think he is one of those characters who needs to be paired up with a strong player in order to be effective, and playing him will help me get better as a player, same goes for Hawk. At the end of the day I have fun playing them and that is what's most important, even though playing your Chun makes me wanna quit playing all together. I won't consider myself a good player until I've even up that matchup.

To Rob, Max, Xavier, Ricky, AtomicX... I wanted to get more games in but Ben took all of my credit.

Good games everyone: Ben, Jay, Captain (nice chatting with ya dude), and everyone else I played.

Ben - I'm not gonna put the blame on Dudley anymore, I just have to keep working at it. I refuse to give up on maining Dudley, I know he has what it takes to be a strong character, I think he is one of those characters who needs to be paired up with a strong player in order to be effective, and playing him will help me get better as a player, same goes for Hawk. At the end of the day I have fun playing them and that is what's most important, even though playing your Chun makes me wanna quit playing all together. I won't consider myself a good player until I've even up that matchup.

Ahh I wasn't implying to quit using Dudley or T-Hawk. I think it's admirable to chug away with your character and be the best that you can be. I was the same, but at some point, I had to concede that just some matchups weigh heavily in favour of another. It becomes more apparent then, that you really need to play two, three, four times better than your opponent to win.

I miss you Meeks mon'. Haven't seen you in weeks!

It has been awhile. I was at GW yesterday but I took off early. Chun needs a fat man  :P

Ben is right.  For the bad matchups, the player using the less favoured player really needs to know the matchup inside out, and needs to work harder for the win.  It's not impossible, but can be very frustrating and challenging.  I think Dudley's matchups are all starting from 8 .... in his favour.  Right?  So David you should be all good with every matchup :P

I admit Chun / Dudley is really bad. But it is winnable, you do need that occasional jump on that fireball and when you get the knockdown, you had better do something with it. A lot of the MU boils down to playing patient, I think absorbing the Chun offense until you get a read of when to hit your buttons is 3/4 of it. Any other time she pokes and prods she has too much advantage at different ranges. Dudley's oki game suffers a lot against characters with strong backdashes so you need to work on all your options when you read a certain wakeup, otherwise they run away for free (which already sucks because it took a lot of effort to knock them down >_<)

If you press a button it's a lot easier for her to mess with you than the other way around. Meeks is already on an advanced level and using Dudley in that unfavorable MU makes it about 10 times worse. So 6-4 feels like 9.5-0.5...

Dudley can definitely still come out close to 50/50 in most match-ups if you work for it. I know Dave of all people will stay true to Duds.

^ Absolutely this. From my short stint using Dudley, my observation is that Dudley spends 80% of his playtime chasing his opponents down, because when he gets in, he can do all the damage to really hurt them. But it's a mission and a half just to get there in the first place. Maybe that's why Dave feels it's a nice change to play against characters like Yun and Cammy. They actually come to him rather than him doing the chasing  ;D

Once again, GG to all! I didn't think I'd be able to come today, but I'm glad I got my work out of the way early morning. Today was really fun. It's always amusing to watch Ben and Dave go at it with their tag-team Dudley shenanigans ;D Speaking of Dudley, I think I oughta watch more games of him, because I'm still having trouble figuring out his methods of approach and defense. Same goes for Cody, I think both are really fun characters, so I don't want to give them up this early!

It's also been a while since I saw that one Asian Dhalsim player, maybe he just comes on Fridays? I was captivated by the games between him and Ben's Chun, had I a bit more time, I would've faced him. Hopefully next time.

By the way, did you guys see the Adon/Cammy/Juri/Yun guy? I walked past him on the way to the train, so I figured it was about time everyone at GW start teching a lot of throws ;)

And lastly, forgive me for not introducing myself, but the one Cammy player who came about 4pm, are you AtomicX? If so, hi! I'm Jay. The guy with the hat, that plays Guy.

Post by: Meeks on October 12, 2012, 10:07:14 PM
hahah Dave practically carried most of the games, although I was relatively proud of one performance against Sagat. I spent most of the other times allowing myself to be exposed as a Dudley fraud  :-[

That Dhalsim player usually has my number. I got away with so much unsafe stuff it wasn't funny. Don't get me wrong, I love winning against Sim, but I think in some regards, he played much better than I did. I took some idiotic risks which paid off which made it look much better than it actually was. But those games were fun.

Jon, I apologise for not specifying that unblockable setup earlier ... (yeah I cheated hehe), but winning against Cammy comes first and foremost before gracious sportsmanship  ;D You were putting on a whole world of hurt at the beginning though, but were unlucky to not sustain the offence for the rest of the game. Keep at it. I think you've got something with her.

Good games yesterday.

Ben - You aren't a fraudulent Dudley player, looking back on when I first picked up Dudley I was a lot worse than you, and seeing your performance I feel like that's how I shouldv'e approached Duds and his style of play instead of just mindlessly rushing in and desperately trying to fish out as much damage as possible. Though, you are utterly hopeless when it comes to mashing reversals, I really didn't know it was a skill till I saw how bad you are at it, hahahaha.

Our Dudley tag-team sessions I have to say are always heaps of fun, hopefully Jay can one day join us, possibly you too Jon 8). Our Dudley mirrors were also interesting, I think when I play those its more in the name of fun than anything, though I do heavily underestimate you at times. Still think it'll be cool if you and Ricky did a Chun Li tag-team, man! Check it > everyone should do tag!, I can see some awesome combinations, like Auxide and that execution/style heavy Rog/Guile player (Boxer tag-team), Vindk8 and the Japanese guy (Dhalsim tag) can be really interesting. Just imagine! how sick would that be... though it probably won't happen, 1. being the social/pairing up component and  2. also being there on the same days and time (this, I still think is do-able, like once a week, Tuesday!), come on, once a week! forget girlfriends, wives and all, we're gamers! we don't need that shit! or you can bring your partners along, Ben and I know one guy who does it, she looks like she's having a blast yeah? ::) ! let's go I'm hype!

Yeah, I decided not to tag in, because my Dudley is an absolute embarrassment. But hopefully one day, we'll join forces to create THE classiest trio of Galaxy World George Street. Dave should wear a monocle or something, just to show he's the leader.

Speaking of which, that random wakeup/reversal Ultra 2 Cody player, has improved a lot. I'm not kidding, the first time I played against him, he didn't know how to throw, but I did see him take some advice from another frequent Cody player, so now he's playing a little more patiently, he does often stop pressing buttons during blockstrings, just kinda chokes when under low-life pressure (but that choking usually pays off, I've seen that Ultra 2 hit some of the better players, almost like a 70% success rate). He's a nice guy, I sat next to him and played a bit of Cody as well, and he was giving me a couple of tips during our games. Although, he did say to me that Honda and Sagat are really broken characters...wasn't sure how to react to that, even though I'm terrible against both. I hope he doesn't stop playing the game, Guy vs Cody is an ultra fun matchup.

GGs again Rob. I might've looked a bit irked at first, because that one kid whose brother threw their GW card, was moving the AE cabinets around trying to find it. Also sorry for losing your Viper against his Yun! But that kid is better than about 90% of the random people who come by. He was also trash talking to me, saying he beat me with a character he used for the first time, haha. He came up to me every time he lost, and told me one of the buttons weren't working, or that he doesn't usually use that character, etc. etc. When he played Akuma, I was telling him not to use such unsafe DPs, and while I was looking at him, he input his Ultra 1, but I saw it on his screen and jumped over it LOL.

I'll owe you a credit next time Rob ;)

And like you said, I really just need to be braver in mixing in the throws, because my "frame traps" aren't really traps at all. But I think I'm slowly breaking away from my unsafe habits, I'm definitely using less run-overheads, but I should seek not to use it at all, because it has like a 500 frame startup, any decent player simply blocks it.

Post by: robsux on October 15, 2012, 10:41:29 AM
No worries Jay, if you don't use Viper, she is easy to lose to, and Yun is annoying :P  Now that kid things he is godlike lol.  You're frame traps are working good, but no point if you don't go for throws sometimes, otherwise opponent will always block and you won't be threatening.  The overhead kick is at least -2 on block, so beware of punishes (e.g. ibuki U1).  GGS and play again soon!

The next best Yun is a guy that tries to force 50/50's all day. Lots of true block strings, mix in some command grab. Tons of random up kicks. He can anti-air. Mixes in st.hk to whiff punish after pushing out with strings. Uhh, hate his style either way, he gets you occasionally but normally just gets blown up HARD when you play solid. Mashes like there's no tomorrow.

I think Meeks has a distaste for that Yun player too. Not sure, Meeks refers to Yun's safe bullshit, but there's nothing safe about the way the guy plays, could be someone else.

Aren't you teaching one of your friends how to play Yun? The guy who wears the cap. I think there's hope in him, I appreciate the way he plays. Nice guy, but he tries to chip out a lot of the time XD

His problem is, he doesn't have a feel for the game very well at the moment.
I find that he is just trying to emulate my style, and lacks a lot of key decision making skills.

All in all though, I also think he has the potential, hence I am coaching him.

Good games to all...

Ben, yet again, was a pleasure rockin' the Dudley tag with ya, fun level escalated once Max joined us, The Classy Trio seemed unstoppable for a while, all I have to say is cluuutch mohfuuucka's!. That Hakan player was a bit diffucult to deal with and had some really good setups, getting a lot of those spinny-throw thingo's off my wake up, shit man what the f**k?! and the two Fuerte players were also legit, was trying to throw out a lot of yomi dp's, just ended up killing myself but I'm glad you liked my showing of Dudley Jon, Max can also give you some great advice on the "how-to's" with Dudley, he maybe more suited than me since I'm still more of a feelzy's/f**k em up kinda guy, though I think you need that as a Dudley player, also Ben can teach you about Dudley's heavy punch  8).

Captain, good restraint on those headbutts today. Noticed that you're quite careless on those jump ins, gotta try and find the right distance since I was getting free anti-airs and anti-air U2 on ya quite a bit, one of the things you're gonna need to beat Meek's Chun.

Had some fun mirror matches with Kian? the Guy/Dudley/Sakura player. Xavier, thanks for the confidence boost when I accidentally chose U1. Kenshin, your Ryu and Meek's Chun match was very fun to watch, "real" edge of your seat stuff  ::), hahahah, nah for reals, it actually turned out really close in both those games (cr.lk for the win Ben).

haha that Dudley triple tag team performance was really awesome, though Max's Dud was probably the most fraudulent out of us three  ;D ( P.S. Stop respecting players at GW Max  ;))

I couldn't believe the amount of clutch moments you mustered in some of those games. So many times I thought to myself ... "ok this is over! Then ... COMEBACK!!" Not that I haven't seen it before (*cough* match against aggressive boxer lol), but it was so fun to watch.

GGs Kenshin. Chun-Boxer matchup is definitely a 1-9 matchup in her favour (But only when you play him ;D haha). But really fun matches with your Ryu (even though Dave damn well was near boredom, so much so he wouldn't watch the match hahah). Solid as usual.

And GGs to Xavier, Captain and a bunch of Akuma/Ryu/Yun players. Much <3

But against Abel the df, db mash jet upper is legit.

I think dp will come out either way if you mash with stick hugging the lower gate, just don't touch the forward or back or you gonna get fireball.

I've noted, Abel is always pressing stuff on roll mixup.

Dudley thrives on comeback, you aren't playing Dudley until you charge up full U2 and then going in. I love magic pixel with duds, people respect him so much.

Rob the cabinet you were using was garbage, MP bit faulty so can't focus consistently and the stick felt weird, I couldn't stand playing on it. Don't know how you lasted so long playing there!

The blue plastic cabinet is really hard to do dive kicks for the stick is so tall I kept not hitting the up-back. Played Cammy mirrors with the guy with the cap, most games were close but think I would of played better if I could dive kick consistently. GGs none the less.

Cheers Rob, I've learnt to stay bit more composed fighting Viper, your corner pressure with her terrifying. I have such a mental block playing your Ibuki, just when I've up'd my defense against Viper, here comes Ibuki, my defense has to be 100x better against her. Knowing her setups is one thing, but being mentally prepared for those inevitable knockdowns, and getting crossed up is so tough.

GGs everybody.

Yang/Akuma guy destroyed me as always, but it was awesome to get to play against that one Dee Jay player again. He caught onto me abusing cr MK and punished me hard in those last few games.

GG to the Makoto player. You only played two games and left, I was hoping to play you more!

GG to you as well Dave, I don't know about you, but I think our Dudley vs Guy matches are really fun (and epic?). Beautiful Ultra on my backdash. Also, I think the machines today weren't connecting properly, so fortunately your T. Hawk could not catch me today!

And GG to you Ben. Again, I think the machines were preventing us from playing a lot of matches, but when I fought your Dudley, I felt that you know me so well, that probably any character you use can easily defeat me. It was cool to see you pulling out several different characters today.

Honestly, I think the problem I have with Dudley is that he's a half-circle character, which I'm absolutely terrible with, it's also why I can never get Guy's U2 out when I need it. I guess I'll never be a cool rose smelling gentleman :'( but watching Ben play Cody was inspiring.

Good games Jay,  I highly enjoy our games! thought I'd let you know that before we officially met, I hated losing to you, I did not have an answer for all those bushin flips you were throwing out, took me long enough to figure out you can simply crouch it, pftthehehe, but honestly! your game has improved so much since then and today, I got outplayed, didn't know at what range to fight Guy since you weren't jumping all that much, personally I have so much trouble fighting characters with a chainable cr.lk and I don't know why!?

Ben, our Cody/Rose vs Dudley matches were so much fun, both can be challenging for Duds but I can't tell you how much I prefer fighting them two over your Chun.

Good games to everyone else I played: Max, Xavier, fake Johnny, Dhalsim player, Yun/Ken player, Hakan player, and Joseph (playing Cammy).

haha like you said Dave ... I can't play anyone but Chun. I am so shitty with other characters. Looks like you've improved a heck of a lot against Rose. Gotta up my game with her. Cody-Dudley was fun though. Both momentum characters I think.

Jay - I think it's just one of those days where everything I did worked against you. I mean ... Dudley's offense is fairly one-dimensional (when I play him anyway hahah Dave has some nice reset setups). I guessed a lot right, and took some risks that paid off. That often makes any player look better than they actually are.

Max - stop coming so late lol (or maybe I should stop leaving early) .... nahh the former  :P Our cabs just refused to match us today  >:(

GGs to everyone else. Shoutouts to the shit-talker who hasn't made an appearance in awhile. He's always good entertainment value  ;D

No Meeks you need to stay longer! Most people come much later.

Gee I wanted to try Cammy before Kbrad defeated Infiltration but now everyone is on the Cammy train. Cammy mirrors are just.. errrrr!
Then again I remember when everyone was on the Sagat/Seth/Yun/Yang/Fei/Sakura train and only a few people remained with those characters when the train left.

GG again people. Great to see some highly skilled players show up. I made it my goal today to minimize jumping, but that didn't pan out too well.

Anyway, thanks again Ben, for those games with silly ol' me. Against you and that one Guile player, it was exceptionally hard to get in. It's like, fighting wind. I strike only to hit nothing, but get blown away. :o

Max, where did you run off to? I went out for a bit for lunch then came back, and you vanished. Either way, cool to see Rufus again, there were literally four Ryus before you showed up. Speaking of Ryu, that attempt of mine to play him sure went apocalyptically BAD, but I can see what you mean about him being a good character to learn the game with. He's a versatile dude with all the tools a character needs.

Off topic question here, but anybody else tried one of those Easyway ice teas? There's one near GW towards Town Hall station. A friend raves on about it, so I went to see what the fuss is about. Pretty nice stuff. I tried a Mango black tea, and sucking in those pearls is really fun. It's getting pretty warm now, so everyone should keep themselves chilled while playing some intense AE matches.

My bad, my eyes were getting very tired from my contacts. Day 4 of wearing them so I decided to jet. O_O'

Your Guy has gotten a lot more impressive, I think every time you went for the CH shoulder thing, people would either get CH or you would trade. After the trade you always converted which is good to see. I do notice like most Guy players you are giving space away. I guess Guy can always wall jump and is good at feinting jump ins, so I can't really comment too much on what Guy's optimal spacing/placement is, but I always think walking forward and taking space away from your opponent is the way to go. I'm not too good at punishing some defensive options, so forcing opponents to the corner limits them and makes them a lot more predictable.

Forget Easyway, go Chatime. That's real tea. Easyway is sugar water.

Anyway GG Jared, it was awesome to see you again, although I'm sorry for giving you such shit games. Honda is just so difficult, it's like I have to play Guy as if he's a different character.

and so many Ryus today! Way too many, it's almost sickening.

By the way Dave, I tried a roasted milk tea at Chatime. Wasn't too bad, but I later realized I forgot to exclude the ice, so all my pearls had sunk to the bottom, so I had to suck them out raw lol.

That matchup has to be shit for guy. I feel like I don't have to think or try that hard to squeak out wins. You are over there doing so many mix-ups/combos and I just get a few headbutts for the victory. If the matchup was 5/5 I feel like I would lose 9 out of 10. Luckily for me Honda's fatass can take damage and deal it out with little thought. GG's regardless. I'm scared that after a few more sessions that I won't be able to win many more.

Hah! definitely the tea of champions. Come to think of it, Ben only started playing better with Dudley once I introduced him to this combination, its the grass jelly + lychee jelly blend, unlocks Dudley's mixup game, no ice = reactions.

Yes, I'm getting Chatime at my next Galaxy World session, haven't had it in a while, perhaps this explains why I've been losing more lately.

Rob, I was COMPLETELY wrong about Guy's turning shoulder. They all leave him on minus frames. Only the LP and MP versions are kinda safe (-1 and -2) but the HP version leaves him on a whopping -6.

Sorry for misleading, I think I got things mixed up when I was looking another character.

In all seriousness, only thing i would change is his sweep (cr.mk), if they'd make that faster OR give it a better hitbox, i'd be happy.
Better sweep = higher probability of UKD = more chance to implement high low mixups = more chances of winning.

Lack of midrange tools aside (only really has f.hp), he's definitely a viable character

This is just a poor transition from 3S to SF4.
Dudley didnt even need cr.mk in 3S, as his high/low mixup game revolved around him getting high dmg and heavy knock down from cr.lk and fwd.hk.

It's the game mechanic in SF4 that screwed him over.

LOL Dudley is top tier. If you gave him just one of these suggestions, the game would be completely broken. He already has no bad matchups as it is and his high/low mixups are unparalleled. He has high health, does monstrous damage and stun, best pokes in the game (st hp, forward st hp,) godlike st mk anti air, longest focus attack in the game, destroys fireball characters and can throw a rose for extra style points. If anything, they need to nerf Dudley to make the game more fair for the other characters.

What Dudley really needs is armor break on SSB and delete his lower hurtbox for the forward motion. As it stands SSB only blows up people mashing cr.tech like an absolute fool and it still beats SSB frequently. Grab invincible the whole way and + on hit, neutral on block. That's about right.

Less knockback on st.hk counter hit.

Faster overhead, 3f cr.lk would help in high lows for sure. Hitbox of Cammy's DP please.

Dudley complete.

Sorry man, didn't mean to be rude. Being a Dudley loyalist myself I just found it funny. Well...

Chun Li, Zangief, Bison, T. Hawk, Guile, Dee Jay, Dhalsim to name a few are all quite tough for Dudley. Due to their normals being far superior and faster (Chun Li, Bison), Guile, Dee Jay and Dhalsim have strong keep away games making it tough to get it, Zangief and Hawk can spd Dudley's HP on block at unsafe ranges, and spd all MGB's on hit excluding EX. Essentially Dudley has to take so many necessary risks and more often than not, against very skilled opponents Dudley will struggle, a lot. About his high/low mixups, I think his high/low's are strong due to that you can combo off of them, but I personally feel a good h/l game is a blend of that(being able to combo off overhead/launcher) together with the speed of the high attack or low attack, he is basically taking a risk everytime he goes for either, his launcher has terrible start up and I do think his overheard should be a bit quicker, his blockstings pushes him back too much that he is unable to utilize his high/low, he doesn't have very good frame traps either. I know Dudley is regarded as a high/low mixup character and that's where his strength lies, but the statement where they're unparalleled just isn't true, Ibuki is able to combo off of her overhead which lead to knockdowns then more mixups? I know her overhead is slow though I think she can use the speed of this move to her advantage, and also her sweep, though its not really comboing, I think?(someone can clarify this since I'm not 100% sure) she can sweep into her target combo which then creates reset situations, her cr.HK is much faster than Dudley's.

P.S I apologize to Rob for putting Ibuki on blast (not hating), hahaha. And to Galaxy World, I've turned this into a Dudley thread, and the only time we ever talk about you is to complain about how shit your cabs are, so yeah. Sorry.

Why high low game when people have crossups that set same 50/50 but also can be setup to be safe?

High low can be blocked on gdlk reaction imo. Most ppl will also just mash and fadc. The distance for overhead is also a give away and 15f? Hmm.

I got so mad today. Juri/Adon masher guy, well played indeed. Slammed my card against the cab like 5 times. If anyone got alarmed, you should be! A combination of random button functionality and the craziest scrub play set me off. I blew up like a cracker.

I wonder why I feel obliged to walk into retarded shit. I think it's just pure rage. By the end of my session I was putting ultras at the end of my neutral ending block strings and on people's wakeup. Makes me feel better. lol.

HAHA it's just like you said, there's nothing to be gained from playing that guy. Honestly speaking though, if I can get my throw techs to work consistently, I'm sure I can 100% beat that guy, but right now I really suck at teching throws. I can see him doing them a mile and a half away, but I just screw them up for some reason, and I just ::) as he throws me 3 times in a row. But he has definitely gotten better. He's actually mixing in a few frame traps, especially that Cammy. But that Adon? He throws like it's his BnB.

Good games last time everyone: Rob: *fake taunt*, Spencer, almost got that double P, I dropped that combo. Jon: why Ryu? Cammy or Dudley dude, let's get some games in at the next YSB. United*numbers*: do you backdash a lot to annoy your opponents? therefore causing them to do obvious jump ins? cause it works. I really need to learn how to fight Blanka, hate that character so much.

Can anyone help with fighting Blanka?

Post by: pham on October 27, 2012, 06:55:53 PM
yeah, majority of the time it's to either
a) lure you to jump in, I then probably do vertical ball or medium punch anti air
b) back away to ultra 2

I don't know, I seem to struggle when Dudley's get me into the corner & the reversal puts me off for my jump in cross ups too.
Yesterday was good games though, had some nice sets with Blanka/Honda heh.

To defeat Blanka, you must play with the mindset of disrespect.

If you aren't dping you are grabbing. That, and you need reactions to stop AA and hop shit/ball shenanigans. If you fall over, prepare to get salty! Jet upper to freedommmmm.

GGs to Akuma/Oni guy, you are like a rival to me, playing you is very fun.

GGs to Abel player, you really punished me hard for pressing buttons, it's been a while since I've played against someone who's willing to Tornado Throw so often, it really caught me off guard.

GG to the Makoto/Sakura guy with the glasses, I've always wanted to play you again but only was able to watch from the side. Your pressure is so relentless when you get it going. Hope to play again soon!

ggs I was the claw player you've improved tenfold since the lasttime I vsed you and killed you with only izuna drops haha

Haha yeah I still remember that, Flying Barcelona confuses the hell outta me, I think the Izuna grabs crouching opponents too? Anyway, thanks again, I'm relieved to hear that I'm making at least a little progress in the game.

Yes that was me! And yeah I don't think the cabinets on your side were working too great today, I had to switch twice because one had a faulty LK and another with bad MK.

Where are the GW staff anyway? Last time I visited, one of them with the long dyed hair was playing Yang lol. He also came by once without the uniform and played a couple of sets with me using Ryu.

Awesome, great to see you here! I was at a machine at the far corner so couldn't see the other players too well, was that you playing Makoto today? That EX karakusa is SCARY.

As for Nostalgia, I haven't seen him at all, then again I haven't really come in during the past few weekdays. I'm guessing he's also busy with studies as Max is.

That Rose player I would play so well and get him down to an inch of his life then he'd pull out the Ultra2 and the whole momentum changes. (Plus he likes to run away or throw allot hmm)

I've noticed that ever since I started playing at Galaxy World, the Dudley usage rate has increased by at least 20%, I'm not saying this is my doing but surely something has clicked and I like it.

That's how Rose is supposed to play, runaway until U2 for momentum change.

I lose to the Rose too, but I don't get salty about it.
I think about the match up in between games, and think of what I am doing wrong.

Rose Ultra 2 is scary.

You honestly have to just take her shit until it ends. Poking it sometimes works. 3/4 of the time I try to walk into it and try block them, never works half as well as I intend it to...

When low life and Rose uses U2, it's truly over lol.

Poking it sometimes works.

If your character has a sufficiently low and far reaching  normal, you'd be surprised how often you can snuff it out. When I'm mucking around I always poke at it :D

That reads kind of strange.
Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: AtomicX on November 02, 2012, 11:13:15 AM
Salty because it sort of feels like a free "I win now" mechanism. After chasing the guy down for 2-3 rounds and putting up with random drill and throws, I'm about to get the kill then the ultra2 comes out I've got no chance (if both low life). Though Zeke showed me you can meatie hit her out of it on start-up so I'll try that next time, but if he is on the other side of the screen (and that rose runs away allot) then it's hopeless.

I don't particularly like the match up, though I like Rob's Rose because he is rush down and gets the game over and done with like tearing off a band aid. :)

I think I feel particularly defeatist atm after having so many close games this week and then I choke at the last pixel. Nostalgia mentioned I need to focus more on staying strong mentally. I think I've been too focused on the win and I've forgot to "play to learn" has been a part of it.
Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: Nost. ULTRA on November 02, 2012, 11:14:35 AM
Walk forward and block (down back), careful of her low attacks as well when she has U2 activated, and rememeber to tech, usually people forget to just because orbs are guiding her.
Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: thirdeye (Ikuya) on November 02, 2012, 12:19:28 PM
Rose U2 is 5F start up (but this game any fireb ball hit box comes 1F faster than start up). and no invincible.  it cant use on reversal but other situation is mostly safe.
anyway it is still one of the strongest ultra in this game. 
Juri U1, Akuma U1, Rose U2.

then you dont need to feel salty.  you should be happy cos you could know how to fight that runaway style.

Yeah when Rose pulls out her U2 during my knockdown, it's scary, kinda like when proper Juri players set off their U1.

I try to get away as much as I can, until the Rose throws a fireball, which I then respond with a EX run-slide, for a free knockdown and cancel out her Ultra. It usually seems to hit either because the Rose is still in her fireball recovery, or she chooses to dash forward right after.

I caught Rob's Rose a couple of times with that, so he switched to Ultra 1 and destroyed me even harder lol.

Anyway, GG to all today. Ben, I only played you twice today, but it was a good wake up call as I realized I was playing really scrubby and my habits of mass Focus Attacks and cr LK were kicking in again.

Dave, I really do want to play you, and I would've done so today, if not for the promise I made to my workmates to have dinner. Hopefully next time. Maybe even tomorrow, depending on how busy things get for me.

And greetings to you Max, that WAS you at Chatswood right? Not some guy who looks like you, and coincidentally decided to greet me as a joke?

Speaking of proper Juri players, it was really awesome to see an actually good Juri player today. I don't know who it was sitting on the other side, but GGs, when you trigger Ultra 1, my heart just stops.

Also, I'm a complete idiot for falling for those reversal/counter hit EX pinwheels. ::) For some reason, I think I forget to block after my safe jumps, maybe getting a little too impatient on offense.

I was slightly less than sociable than usual, only because I have a mate down from Adelaide, so I apologise if I was somewhat lacking in interaction.

Re: Rose U2. Yeah this can be difficult to deal with at times, and when you're thin on life, her u2 is no different to Ryu chipping you with dp, or Seth chipping you with U2. If Rose activates her ultra from full screen. Play keep-away as best as you can, and if you're in the corner, block and be prepared to crouch tech. I'm not entirely sure why, but I also seem to have some success anti-airing her when she jumps in, so I suspect she's actually kind of vulnerable in the air with U2 activated. Use that with discretion though.

Anyway, GG to all today. Ben, I only played you twice today, but it was a good wake up call as I realized I was playing really scrubby and my habits of mass Focus Attacks and cr LK were kicking in again.

You weren't playing scrubby at all. I was more impressed that you are now a little less fearless playing the game just outside sweep range and using pokes to control the space between you and I. Just don't get too flustered when you are under pressure. You can obviously ride the momentum well offensively, but your defense goes a little awry when I can push my offense on you. GGs. They were fun games.

As for that Juri player. He takes some really unnecessary risks that sometimes pays off and other times it doesn't. He uses ex-pinwheel quite liberally off either a hk.pinwheel or as a reversal during blockstring, so if you read them, be absolutely prepared to punish him fully.

GG again guys.

Dave, a pleasant surprise to see you in on a Saturday, fun fun games. Trying to play a new character is hilarious after playing just one guy for so long. Numerous times during my Evil Ryu attempt, I expected him to pull off Guy's shoulder attack and Run, but nope. DP motion is so hard lol, the last time I did those is years ago playing Alpha 3 with friends. I was so good at it back then....I'd have Ryu literally move across the screen with just jab shoryus. Then again, that was on a PS1 controller, so mehhh.

Captain, it seems like I see you mostly on Saturdays, good games, I think I'm slowly getting the hang of reacting to headbutts, which I will also apply against Blankas. I think Honda is an interesting character to play against, even a Honda mirror match would be awesome.

You weren't playing scrubby at all. I was more impressed that you are now a little less fearless playing the game just outside sweep range and using pokes to control the space between you and I. Just don't get too flustered when you are under pressure. You can obviously ride the momentum well offensively, but your defense goes a little awry when I can push my offense on you. GGs. They were fun games.

Thanks, I think the main problem I have, are your fireballs, especially after I try a dumb jump in and get AA'd, I sort of choke from there.

I also think I'm having more trouble blocking frame traps the more I become aware of them, as well as their mix up with throws. That's how that Yang player always hits me dizzy, he honestly doesn't use a lot of throws, but the pressure makes me push buttons, then smack, swipe swipe swiiiipe

Hey, I've been promoted to a forum regular! I post on this thread WAY too much lol.

I finally finished Arcade Mode once, didn't even make it in the top 20, haha. Boss Seth is apparently weak against repeated forward dash -> Bushin flip. I just had to do it, otherwise he hits me with the most retarded SPDs and hyakuretsus. I think it's pretty cool that the game endings are now fully animated, rather than a simple slideshow, but I think Capcom could've picked a better rival for Guy, rather than Rose.

Today certainly wasn't his best day. His Adon is free, but when he pulls out Cammy, it gets a bit tricky, because she is such an amazing character. Or it's probably just me misjudging the hit space of Cannon Spike, and she's got a late wakeup.

Hey Max, it becomes apparent that when playing against someone like him, you realise you have to start playing the player and not the matchup. I remember playing him early on, and having the same disdain for his playstyle, but I think that mentality hampered my improvement rather than do anything positive about my play. One game which actually pops into mind is when I safe jumped him 3 times in a row and every time he woke up with a reversal. At that point, I just knew that the guy refused to be conditioned.  Blame the game that allows him to play in this manner. He is actually a pretty nice guy. He's just doing whatever he thinks will win him games, and this playstyle obviously gives him the accesibility to do so (at times). He obviously doesn't care whether you like it, and nor should he (just as that you have every right not to appreciate the way he plays). He's not the only one there that does it. Once you get your head around how he plays, you'll be better equipped to handle others who play similarly "random".

Anyway, not trying to tell you what to like and not like ... but just trying to put some perspective on things  :)
Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: robsux on November 07, 2012, 02:08:31 PM
he's a nice guy like Meeks said and we speak to him a bit, but it gets annoying if you play him and he reversal you during block strings  80% of the time.  He uses 2 choice either throw or uppercut/ultra.  Just block for the most part, and punish when he goes for the uppercut/ultra.  Late tech with caution, and it should be easier to play against.  Exactly like Meeks said you need to play the player , more than the matchup!

That's the one thing I hate about this game is when your vsing a player who is off the wall, or don't know what they're doing you have to dumb your game down and play by their rules. Eg if they mash dp the game turns into a wait then punish scenario. Or if they are random you have to be careful about hitting a button. The game should be the other way around where if you're the more experienced player you make them play by YOUR rules not theirs.

I've been dabbling in learning Tekken Tag 2 and in that game the better player can really toy with you and force you to play their way. You can really feel the difference between noob and expert. Where in SF4 with the easy inputs and ultras a noob can feel like he's daigo for a few games.

Post by: Silhouette on November 07, 2012, 06:03:55 PM
That's actually one thing I like about SSF4. It isn't simply dumbed down to who can hit the launcher first, or wall combo first. And I'm not just talking about Tekken, even 3S and Alpha games were really a contest of who can get poke xx SA, or CC to hit.

I think with SSF4, Capcom tried to go back to the style of Super Turbo, where the importance of fundamentals is truly emphasized. Mind games, pokes, anti-air, spacing, all those juicy stuff

But hey, that's just me, I could be completely wrong, I'm not even that great at the game ;D

Why have these self-imposed rules on how the game should be played. You're better than that Jon. When you start to expect other players to abide by your rules you concede that you are less inclined to adapt.

Post by: AtomicX on November 07, 2012, 08:35:11 PM
I think my post has been misread. Trying to suggest it should take some skill to control the flow of the match, and not be like "oh great this guy wants to dp after two jabs, so I got to sit it out, punish and repeat, boring!". The other guy should be like "Man I'm put into this situation where no matter how much I mash on the joystick I can't win! What do I do!?" etc.

I tried hyper fighting once on supercade and the feeling of hopelessness against good players is evident. Being locked down in the corner by hadoken pressure no way to get out, I enjoyed that! If I was put in the same situation in SF4 it's just "Hey I'll focus that fireball!" Or "I'll just mash something and eventually it will hit!".

Even in several Daigo interviews he has commented that the winner is not necessary the better player and that there's element of luck in this game.

Of course all for adaptation as it is a TWO player game. I just wish the game was built where a new or clueless player had zero chance of achieving anything. We're all human and I've seen even Rob get defeated by wake up Ultras and what not. But alas it is a modern fighting game after all and it probably wouldn't have the appeal if the learning curve was that strict.

RE: Adaptation. I'm probably going to counter my own argument here, but usually I would get very salty losing to a player who I thought wasn't very good. (Hence the above rant). Recently I've been trying to change that mental approach away from who is better (and all that nonsense) to break down the game to simple problem solving. So pretending the game is a problem or puzzle someone has presented for me to solve. Suddenly I find the game is 100x more fun with this approach. (Though old habits do die hard).

I rage then laugh when I beat or lose to those people or I just can't be f-word playing them and just have a perv at the shopping centre until they finish playing. Online I troll, kick them or leave the lobby. No point subjecting yourself to autism or down syndrome.

That's the one thing I hate about this game is when your vsing a player who is off the wall, or don't know what they're doing you have to dumb your game down and play by their rules. Eg if they mash dp the game turns into a wait then punish scenario. Or if they are random you have to be careful about hitting a button. The game should be the other way around where if you're the more experienced player you make them play by YOUR rules not theirs.
I completely disagree! Good players should be versatile!

Two choice style in the end does a knock down and 180 dmg tops, because he know that those players who are reversal happy don't do set ups to get more damage. Almost every character can punish a dragon punch for around 25% without meter, it's going to take around 6-7 DPs and maybe 7-8 throws to KO the average character. It's like betting on black every time.

Meanwhile, those mashy reversal guys taught me how to punish properly.

I reread what you posted, but playing a weaker player and playing a stronger player - you still have to make guesses as to what they do and that part never changes. I bet plenty of people are thinking: "Man I'm put into this situation where no matter how much I mash on the joystick I can't win! What do I do!?"
 
But more often then not their solution is: "Mash harder!"

Just block that BS and after the fight say, "Why did you keep doing that?" - You'd be surprised how many players I've seen improve upon realising this.

Post by: AtomicX on November 08, 2012, 02:39:03 PM
Fair call. Guess I'm trying to say I wish the game would make them realise this without you needing to tell them. Instead if they mash really hard they might get lucky with a dp that converts into an Ultra. Or if they know basic combo a dp that converts to FADC then ultra. So the game is designed to allow them to do what they want to do. Of course they'll get no where in the long run.

Yeah I understand and sometimes I think it's a big reason why our community doesn't grow as quickly as others'. We're not friendly enough to newer players. I remember starting 3S for the first time and wasn't welcomed immediately until I proved I could listen, in this case it was legendary Jacku who taught me:

"Don't do dat - you die!"

Strangely he also told me to EX Jet Upper on my wake up more  :Kappa:

If it's any consolation, having played you online a lot I think you play the game well. You can tell when someone is trying to learn and when someone just wants to win and your definitely a learner. I enjoy playing you.

I think having played this game for so long, the leap I took from being shit to decent was when I realized I didn't need all these wonderful options and advanced techniques to beat players. I just had to do what I had to, to get the job done. This game engine has so many situations that you can become swamped in options and forget to just do the basics.

I have no doubt that if there were ever a player out there that was brilliant at SF2 and picked up SF4 now, they would still be better than most players just using basic Street Fighter knowledge.

This sums up how I approach the game, and the challenges that it presents gives me something to work toward.

This game has taught me one thing. Never (ever) underestimate your opponent, no matter how scrubby they appear. Learning to beat randomness is in itself a challenge, albeit one that is easy to overcome with the right mentality.

I've made the mistake of messaging randoms online or even telling a friend in real life that you shouldn't do XXXX move too much because it's really unsafe and sure you might get lucky sometimes but in the long run it's not a good idea. I'd usually get a very defensive response equivalent to telling me to stick it where the sun don't shine. AND unfortunately they do have a point. Why should they listen to someone telling them what they did isn't a good idea when they can beat some players by doing that? Sure they probably won't win consistently, but those type of players are usually happy with the wins they do get.

Cheers I appreciate that! In the back of my mind I still think other's are thinking I'm a brainless scrub, especially offline actually where in the arcade you just get greeted by grunts and blank faces.

This game has taught me one thing. Never (ever) underestimate your opponent, no matter how scrubby they appear.

And to add to this:

Never (ever) consider a round over until you're KO'd. Comebacks are always possible in this game and I've witnessed (and pulled some of my own) many instances where folks have clawed back from slivers of health to take the round or even the game. This applies to your opponent too - just because you have them on the ropes doesn't mean its beyond the realm of possibility for them to come back and take you down.

I've also seen many players emit sighs of frustration long before they are toast simply because they ate something ridiculous or perhaps made a heavily punished error. Some folks mentally collapse and borderline give up. Even if you're significantly down and are forced to work with reduced resources to win but fail, it improves ones game a lot as you're forced to handle pressure and get creative with your attack. Frankly I think this is when people play at their best provided they keep their cool. They always make for the most hype moments to witness and especially to play through.

So many words of wisdom. I'm just naturally salty.

I can go 100-1 and still be mad against that guy lolol. But I was truly mad at myself that day, I did everything to make him open up and all it took was 1f error in punish combo to reversal Juri U2. Happened twice. Missing punish on whiffed air landing frames and missing 3 empty jumps grabs and then eating an empty jump U2 is really disgusting.

The infancy of my Yang really showed and it sucked to have someone capitalise the hell out of mistakes which are not meant to be there.

tldr: I hate screwing up. Lost to myself.

It's fine, I come back stronger and saltier each time. As I said to Silhouette there's nothing to be gained from versing him. Nice guy, but playing the game like... 6 pool. My apologies for stirring the pot. I keep pushing to catch up against Rob, Meeks, Shang, AD (falco too lol) and those who've graced Sydney with strong play. I've come too far a way to be thwarted by troll style 101.

If you lose, there's always something to be gained. All I'm saying is, don't limit yourself to a specific idea of how the game should be played. You have to be able to beat all sorts of opponents, whether they are random, defensive, or offensive. Be accountable for everything you do. Avoiding certain types of players can be detrimental in the long run. Use the GW matching system as a way to help you prepare for all kinds of opponents. At a tournament, you don't get to pick and choose your opponents. You are in a unique position to prepare for all kinds of players at GW with the random matchmaking between cabs.

Speaking of GW matchmaking, is there actually a system to it?

The Juri/Adon/Yun guy seems to think so. He is playing a game, but then he looks at the players next to him, and then swipes his card again. The one who entered the credit last is moved up/down on some sort of priority list? I don't know.

But as Meeks says, he's a friendly guy, he sits next to me, and points out some things I overlooked and tries to get some games in with me. I think we should all talk to him at least, or even introduce him to OzHadou, so he can look at all the nice things Max has said about him ;D

...or maybe he already is :o

If the machines are networked correctly whoever is waiting (vs cpu) then they are next in the queue.

I like an odd number of players then the match making rotates around as there will always be someone waiting where an even number you are locked in an "endless battle" with your opponent unless they take a breather and swipe much later.

Last few weeks the network has been horrible with some machines not connecting to other machines or some machines stuck vsing the cpu.

Imagine if we had the battle card system like Japan has, that would be so freaking awesome. But with dodgy sticks, broken buttons, faulty network we are lucky to have what we have lol.

And nice to see you again Adon/Juri/Cammy guy. I forget to ask your name.

Also, to the Balrog dude who usually plays Cody on a PS3 pad, you're doing very well! You say you're not used to arcade controls yet, but by around the 4th game or so, you were consistent with those links.

If your not on a machine that has dodgy stick or broken buttons then your on a machine that won't network with the rest of them.  >:(

I totally lose my concentration if the stick or buttons are bad.

What's a venue in the city that would want to host consoles? Anyone have a relaxed work place where they have after hours access? Anyone have a big apartment?

Is it realistic that the money we'd put to galaxy world each week we can pitch in and rent a space?

Maybe the solution is to write to Galaxy World on facebook in a polite and formal manner expressing that they need to replace their equipment. The Tekken guys have done that but it seems to be only a short term solution.

It's a real shame that GW is our only option for regular weekly offline sessions. Console sessions are a million times better. Not only better equipment and not pumping in money but I feel it frees the mind to experiment and learn the game better.

GW is an amusement arcade designed for amusement. It's not there so we can get better at Street Fighter. It's not there to benefit the community.

The fact that GW has a token style and there are set strategies to beat that style (Ask Ikuya) is also detrimental to getting better at the game. It seems you can only reach a certain point where you become the master of GW but are still no better at Street Fighter. (Maybe better at AA and punish but that's it).

Good to see some more players on a Sunday than usual.

GG Ajay (is that how it's spelt?) your Balrog is great, but I wouldn't give up on that Ryu and Cody, I think they're not too difficult on stick, compared to pad I mean.

GG Adon/Cammy/Yun/Juri guy, you've gotten heaps better again, especially Yun. I think knowing when to back off is good, because you seem to fall victim to mash DPs a lot when you're on the offensive.

Also, GG to you Mark, good to see you at GW again, it's been awhile. Or maybe it's just me not coming in during the weekdays. Guy vs Makoto is so scary for both sides.

Hope you guys don't mind me asking, but I've always wondered, how do you GW regulars afford to play there so often?

By not losing. Obviously Rob only spends $1.10 a day.

GG to all my GW brothers today. Great to see all the big boys come in on the same day, especially you guys, Ben, Dave and Max.

It was somewhat nostalgic, getting my ass whipped by the EX kicks -> kikosho, I'm so damn free ><

Dave, would've been great to have a few more games with you, and you too Max, there just aren't enough Rufus players around here.

Was hoping to play against the Akuma/Oni guy, but he sneaked away at some point. That yellow costume Yun player was really good, but I don't like the way he starts underestimating opponents once he gets a decent Win streak.

Also, time to do some research on Rose, lol.

Post by: maxsze90 on November 27, 2012, 07:26:07 PM
My Rufus has become flowchart fatty-101. Got no footsies and weak anti-air.

All I do is mash them divekicks, no gameplan, not even conditioning or adapting lol.

Ryu/Akuma player was godlike, I'd like a rematch! I'd need to get back in the zone before attempting again.

GG's to the boys. No games with Meeks makes me sad. :(

Jay you've gotten even better, I think you need to sit even closer but great pressure. Jumping a bit too far out, close jumps should work well with his ability to change arc, much like E.Ryu. But not sure if people will just go under... hmm. I have a habit of walking into E.Ryu's dive kick when they do a block string and jump.

Post by: Silhouette on November 27, 2012, 08:03:47 PM
Yeah, you're right, the space of my jumps are just bad. The comparison you made with Evil Ryu is interesting, although Guy's elbow drop sucks a lot more, seeing as the animation has his legs simply hanging there, asking to be smacked, one thing Meeks is ever so happy to do.

Thanks for the suggestion again though, what you told me last time about how Guys should be moving forward, that actually helped a lot.

Oh and by the way, that Yang of yours looked a lot more solid than last time, hope to play you again.

Good games everyone, was sad that I didn't get to play you today Ben, you too Max, we also didn't get a chance to assemble the Classy Trio. Jay, your Guy is constantly improving more and more, feels like I'm falling behind in that match up. Ikuya, your Ken was monster tonight. Ben, the Tekken smack talker was on overdrive today, it was a bit much.

GGs Jay. There were some really iffy moments that gave me the game, and I think you probably have to use the shoulder drop a little more sparingly, as it is quite easily avoidable with low crouching attacks. Try to minimise backward movement if you can too. You're still giving me space to move you into the corner and that is always trouble (in any given matchup).

GG's to the boys. No games with Meeks makes me sad. :(

Jump on earlier lol Too busy downloading me ;) I need the Rufus practise for when I next meet Zg  ;D

Ripping Dudley out is always fun. I never really know what I'm doing with Dudley. Even that win I got against that Sagat player, I was at a loss as to explain how I won LOL

As for the smack talker ... I know it's all in good fun, but yeah, sometimes I fear that I might find a broken bottle at the back of my neck someday  :pogchamp:

Man if you've been salty I bet you've never been salty as this guy...

The short Asian guy with shaved head and glasses who plays Juri/Viper. (He can do Juri ultra 1 combos but his game consists of spam pin-wheel / EX pin-wheel). I was on the other side and I could hear him ferociously smashing his cabinet before our game started (If I remember right) so he must have been salty about something previously (Was it your Honda Captain that made him salty?  :)  ).

I beat his Juri two games using Cammy and I could hear him go berserk on his cabinet, and according to Captain he kicked his chair all the way over to the dance dance machine! He then went over to my side and he stared at me then angrily kicked the cabinet closet to him then stormed off. I thought he was going to kick my head in!

I bet he was thinking “I can do Juri Ultra 1, I'm God like! How can I possibly lose to these scrubs?”. It seems it appears he doesn't know there's more to the game than doing combos.

Anyway if I see him again I don't think I'll play, it's not worth getting into a confrontation over a video game. Unless anyone wants to shield me, Ben, Max, Dave, Rob? :)

Ggs to everyone though. I must learn how to deal with Honda just to beat you Captain. And nice to meet you Michael.

'Really good at vanilla'? A 'top' player back then must really be crap... or maybe he was a top player in the first week of vanilla where shoryu FADC U1 was considered godlike...

Sure you guys talking about the same guy? I find it hard to believe that someone who spams unsafe pin-wheels, can't anti-air and doesn't use normals was once a "top player"...

Anyway to give credit to the guy he was probably having a bad day, but still that's no reason for him to take out his salt on the machine and especially other people.

When frustration hits boiling point the answer is always cool off, think about why you've lost, hit the lab, work on your faults and come back stronger.

Maybe he was trolling and didnt expect to lose. Maxsze90, some players understood the game a lot better than others when it first came out. Humanbomb is a good example because he dominated through advanced knowledge. Years ago for many of us we couldnt take rounds off Johnny but now I can name over 10 Australian Players who can win matches against him.

Zodiac was never a talkative or overly friendly player. Based on the physical description and character choices it sounds like to me (and Rob) that it's him. Sad to hear that he displayed such poor restraint

Oh wow, Zoddiac actually came out to play? I played him online quite a bit back during Vanilla/Super and he seemed like a nice guy (albeit only offline). Never behaved in a manner that suggested he was a lunatic as described by Jon hahah And he had a really mean Akuma too.

He had a look of complete insanity when he lost. He lost to a guy sitting on my side and stared down the poor guy while he started his next match. After losing to AtomicX he proceeded to practice his bongo playing ability on the cabinet then Bison standing heavy kicked the poor training stool so it could go practice DDR.

Anyway GG's errrybody. Hopefully I'll be able to stop in more next week!

Ggs Sydney.

Jon, it was def Zoddiac, I saw him earlier today U1 Juri.

The machines need new buttons and/or sticks. Inputs were way inconsistent. Dissappointed I topped up today without thinking that through. Was still winning some games but issues hit confirming and even blocking sucked the fun out and made for salty losing.

Want to step up before OHN but GW isnt the place for it.

Is your home big enough for offline meets?

The issues with GW are ever present and they won't go away anytime soon. It's up to us the community to arrange weekly offline meets if we want to do that.

My place isn't suitable for more than 3 people and I don't have the resources to buy more consoles and sticks and rent a space. I'll be happy to do what I can though.

As I've vaguely mentioned before if the money we'd usually put to GW each week went to renting space for offline games that might work? I have no idea where to start looking in the city though. Then there is the issue of monitors, consoles, games and sticks. *Sigh*

I wish the arcade had a rematch option. So salty I lost to the Ryu player who just wouldn't stop hitting buttons. Not a millisecond would go by without him not doing something, he must of been on some serious red cordial. I think I died from eating random Dps, tatus and ex fireball in amongst all his button pressing. After I lost I thought it's okay I've worked out what to do now, but then he was matched against someone else and then he went home so I never got my rematch. So frustrating!!!
The worst part is as I'm currently crying salty tears into my pillow he's probably at the pub with his mates laughing "Oh this one guy at the arcade was so f**king fray! Muhahahahahahha haha....ha"  :pogchamp:

Anyway what do I learn from this? My ability to adapt on the fly sucks, I need to get better at adapting to different play styles quicker.

GG to the Honda player who I could not defeat at all, as well as the Zangief player who was playing a bit of Fei Long later. Couldn't beat you at all either, that LP SPD range never stops surprising me. Gotta work on the matchup...

GG to the Juri/Rose guy who talked to me about YSB. I completely forgot to ask your name lol.

GG again to the Akuma/Oni guy, very close and intense matches we had there. It took me a while, but I finally realized I shouldn't be pressing anything after the far demon flips, in case Ultra 1 kicks in. Got caught by that so many times  :-[ Also, that pressure with the Oni, has improved tremendously.

Went to play a bit today. I think my Rose has improved a TINY tiny bit. The first machine had a busted MK which in the end actually taught me the importance of slide in Roses zoning as well as the throw invincible frame trap. I won against a Guile which surprised even myself.

Safe to assume his name is Robert?, though its weird cos there is only one Rob here and that's robsux, hahaha... just playing, for real though, ayyitsrobert's Sakura is pretty slick, it seems he's a very setup heavy player, he has some tricky stuff with Ken as well.

Yeah most good Sakura players are. She's got some really good ambiguous setups, and that lk.tatsu is such a good offensive tool

Sakura is like Yang on roids. Dem hit confirms turn into such ridiculous damage.

Might dabble into her for a bit, her tatsu can be used to destroy tech and is easy confirm to big damage and reset, hmmm.

ayyitsrobert making frequent showings now? Damn someone needs to expose him.

quiet max; or do i have to expose your 'godlike' oni with my day one oni again? :) :pogchamp:

GGs ayyitsrobert, your Sakura has tricky setups, I like that allot! I need to get better at frame trapping, my timing was off so I think I only got a counter hit once. hmm

good games, haha, i was surprised when i saw you playing cammy instead of bison.

Don't know if it was the same guy, but I played a Sakura player who really knew his shit. Quality player. Good games were had.


good games; you were the chun right?so strong. hahah; i think i only took one or two games off you.

Not sure if this is the right thread to ask, but I've seen some players jump over a knocked down opponent in the corner, and rather than go for a meaty crossup, they would throw in a jumping normal BEFORE the opponent gets up, and then maybe throw in a quick crouching normal once they land.

Is this simply to trick the opponent into blocking a crossup on wakeup? Or is there another reason. And also, does it make the jump safe?

Depends, some characters can hit the crossup really late so the decision to whiff it and then go for a low could be used as a mixup. But I do believe that you could block those with relative ease after you've seen the jump height and timing against the different characters (MU experience). There are 4 more additional landing frames before they could do anything if they pressed a button in the air so I would normally expect an empty jump low attack to work better.

Blocking what you mentioned should be a matter of just strong defense where the stick is moved to cover both the air crossup and low in the correct manner and timing (the possible window where you can be hit by the crossup and the proceeding low, factoring in block stun on a possible air hit). Empty jump lows is a different story however and should be a fair bit harder to react to.

Furthermore whiffed air attacks into lows/whatever for some characters can assist with some meaty/counter hit setups. Here, Sakura/Ken spring to mind... (maybe because I've been getting annihilated recently lol)

Dudley setup for fun after focus attack crumple (airborne state): overhead (on the crumple), standing jab, jumping hk (whiff), upon landing you may --> fwd.hp or cr.hk or overhead for superrrr meaty results.

I hopped on 4 machines and each had one button that did not work, could not believe it.

The staff guy gives me back 4 credits on one machine. Can not believe how crap the machines are now.

If I remember correctly the Tekken guys wrote a formal post on the GW Facebook page to get their buttons and sticks fixed. Any volunteers to do that for us Street Fighter guys? (Meeks your very good at writing long diplomatic posts... ;) )Or should we do a petition?

New sticks and buttons for that place are years overdue. I can't bring myself to play at GW a great deal due to the atrocious state of their laughable hardware - I feel like the reliability of the controls adds a +30% mix-up factor to my opponent's game (and mine). Its a coin toss if focus attack responds and its an added bonus if double-dash registers. Sweeps are optional, jabs only on Wednesdays. Jump forward requires a down-payment of four games, though you shouldn't be jumping anyway, right?

Its the only arcade I've played at where people actually perform button checks prior to the beginning of rounds.

GW doesn't give a toss though - there's still countless people happy to pay money to play a block-optional, int(rnd*6) button version of SFIV. I liken it to a taxi company owner who hasn't maintained his fleet since 1976, with the vehicles still plodding around the city coughing up smoke and trailing random parts with the drivers sitting behind the wheel muttering salty phrases through gritted teeth.

Galaxy World. The most unique fighting game playing experience in the southern hemisphere.

Remember how Daigo dropped into GW to play a few games a while back? How embarrassing.

That rant is way overdue and warranted. However, it's really the only offline option for myself since I cannot commit to weekends when YSB offline meets are often conducted. I have no other option than to bank in blind faith that something "can" be done about those buttons. Akin to an abused wife who just refuses to leave her husband in hope that he can turn his obnoxious ways around.

Even though GW are the ones taking our money unfortunately it's still up to us to let them know how we feel. Whinging here is good for stress relief but it won't do anything to change the situation. And we should make it clear that we aren’t talking about a simple button change when one is broken, ALL their sticks and buttons needs to be replaced with new equipment!

Lots of funny moments with broken buttons though. One time the MP just popped right out of the machine and the staff member just poked it back in again. Next player comes along it pops out again causing him to lose the match, so he picked up the button and threw it on the ground. Well done!

Another time after the staff member fixed Rob's button he said to Rob "You happy now? You win now?". Yea like we only care if a button is broken or not depending if we win / lose.  ::) Just shows the GW staff lack of understanding.

Most staff are cool with doing a quick button replacement but there is one staff member there that absolutely hates it. I told him a button was broken and he said he'd come up to change it and he never, NEVER came up to change it.

GGS to all yesterday.

Masa's Dhalsim is too good, I only clutched a couple of games because I slightly changed my style again. It's that thing I said about hard matchups, you need to make a lot of a risky changes while the other person just needs to make little changes.

But yeah the cabinets require much maintenance, sucks when my HP doesn't work 30% of the time which causes me to go LARIAT AH NI LOU MEH.

The battle network support is built into all arcade releases of AE and can be manipulated via the Taito Type X2 bios.

I recall the actual distribution of the data (name, points, stats, costume, colour) relies on a cellular network to transmit data for storage. There is very little concrete info on the central record keeping for the system however, though I believe it cannot be localised. There is also very little detail on the cards themselves (i.e. if they can store data or are merely an authentication system to fetch and relay to the aforementioned storage systems).

Interestingly, the Tekken cabinets at GGs supported cards and I believe they retained stats (wins, losses and personalised character names) on the actual cards themselves without an external network dependency.

So in short, the capability is certainly there, there's just a few unknowns as to how these data are actually stored and recorded combined with GW obviously lacking the required readers (and cards!) themselves.

Galaxy World would do better to repair their busted ass hardware before even considering a card system though.

Frankly I don't see this changing a thing. Despite people's continued complaints about the state of the hardware, they continue to play there day in, day out. Unfortunately a mass boycott wouldn't work either, as they'd just plain remove the cabinets.

A better a approach might be to mention to them that if they were to improve the hardware, they'd actually net a lot MORE regular paying customers. Last I went to GW I sat down at a cabinet with a faulty hk (Akuma nerf, haha) and the guy I was paired against couldn't jump diagonally. We played a single game and then we both left on our own accord due to the laughable state of the machines these fools expected us to pay money to play on. Prior to that I had a session at GW where I had a perfectly functioning cabinet and as a result stayed for hours, happily emptying my wallet into the card slot.

Another hurdle isn't so much GW's complete disdain for hardware maintenance, but the Neanderthals who feel compelled to bash the unholy shit out of the buttons and their mounting panels expecting hidden win-buttons to emerge from beneath all the while swinging off the sticks like caged gibbons on heat. For a while there I was entertaining the idea of a donation drive to pool some cash so we could purchase a swathe of sticks and buttons and hand them to GW to actually install. The intent gets a little lost though when you consider that non-contributors would continue to use the cabinets to pound corn, effectively wasting a community effort.

Perhaps some kind of "Dude, don't be a dick with the cabinets" sign is in order? I'm unsure how they'd police that though, as we've all stood passively and indeed had a giggle when we see some mouth breathing retard bashing the console like a whack-a-mole machine only to sober up once it registers that we may find ourselves using that very cabinet next.

Sure is funny at the time though xD

I know that 99% of the time it won't work but better than doing ABSOLUTELY nothing is my point. Like you mentioned we can come up with suggestions but there's always going to be an obstacle and in the end its frustrating for everyone that we are still paying $1.20 on a game that has practically been out for a long time... but saying that its hard to make them move in the end.

Oh yeah, those people who decides to put FU in our fun is extremely amusing to watch... but beware of them too, I once got into a real fight afterwards to being too good   :(

Till then I just think its best for us to express our opinions to them then just to whinge and bitch over here. That's all.


Anyone coming in later tonight?

well I've decided to stop playing there now entirely, so that's about $50 they wont be getting anymore from me each week. If they're made to understand that they can lose 200-300 each week just because they're slack at maintaining their cabinets it might very well make a difference.

Meanwhile staff attitude is kind of poor as well, they're paid to help the customer. When I was at GGs I used to fix and replace buttons as well in addition to all my retail duties and I was often working by myself. It wasnt difficult by any measure.

Inspired by a few players saying we don't have any xxx character at Galaxy World. I thought I'd a do a list of players and characters they use so we can identify what characters might be lacking at Galaxy World. (And this was mostly done for fun).

The rules I gave myself were:

Based on consistent character usage and consistent attendance.

I.e. The player came at least once a week and more often than not they used their character listed.

The list is based on the last two months give and take. Though I just went by what I remember so the list would need everyone's input to be more accurate. Please let me know of any errors and names/gamer tag if I've got you down as "something something guy" or feel free to copy n paste and update the list yourself.

I was hesitate to even put Max on the list as his attendance hasn't been that good recently. Though good point I will add Dudley and Yang. Though I've never seen his Yang at Galaxy World but I've heard rumours of a man who lost all his credit and was in great despair.

I'm not sure if he reads these forums but he has been at Galaxy World for a while now. Plays Guy/Dudley then Sakura/Yun/Cammy etc. He is friends with Joseph(?) I think.

I know which guy you're talking about. He's a very sociable character. I've spoken to him on numerous occasions. I think he is Malaysian Chinese like myself. He's very competent with all the characters you've suggested he plays.

Yeah back when I first started playing this game, he was the one and only Guy user and was putting up a good fight against even Rob. The first time I played after learning what a crouch tech is, he happened to show up with Dudley. I random ultra'd him, to which he smiled and nodded. He then picked Guy and properly ninja'd me to bits. I last saw him about a month ago, but didn't get to see him play as the only available AE cabinet was busted, GW style. Hope to have a mirror rematch against him.

GG to those who came today. Captain, and another Honda player who I think is United? Everyone is so damn good now, while I'm starting to miss the simplest combos! GG to the Zangief who beat me couple of games before I left, I think I started to get used to the matchup a bit, very different from any other, but also enjoyable in a Chess game way.

Jon, a pleasure to see you on a Friday though we weren't able to play, lets have a game or two next time. Loving that list by the way. Spam Flying Barcelona Attack guy HAHAHA

Zangief vs Guy is the hardest matchup (for Guy). Guy needs to play in a way that he takes absolutely NO RISK, and unfortunately for Guy there are way too many risky things against Zangief.

I remember when I play Phero in Melb, he sums it up as: "For this matchup, I cannot play my usual style. So in the end, it's like playing a match with a huge mental block."

When versing Zangief, you are playing Super Zangief Fighter 4.

It's a completely different game and an acquired taste. I think Zangief is unique in terms as a matchup for the whole cast. Barring Dhalsim/Sagat really...

Updated my list to add new Zangief guy.

GGs everyone today (Rob, Ikuya, Captain, Silhouette, New Zangief guy) Sunday seems pretty chilled. I used Ryu, Cammy, Sagat and Bison.

For those that don't know on any day you can pay $16 for an hour worth of play. You can swipe your card on the machine around every 3 - 5 mins so the trick is if you are winning or losing keep swiping your card often so when the hour is up you still have credits left in the machine.

Recharging bonus dollars on Tuesday or Thursday is still the better way but it's another option they have that I think is useful on the odd occasion. For the hour I paid I'm sure I used way more than $16 worth of credit. So a good time was had and money was saved.

ggs guys! 

Far out my hk don't work, then my hp don't work, then my lk don't work!  Maybe I push buttons too hard.  Why is my TE never having any problems!?!?!? 

One of the guys at Galaxy asked me for feedback on the machines and stuff, which I was really shocked.  I think he's Indian?  He fixes most of the machines.  So I'm thinking to tell him the 4 cabinets opposite each other on the right hand side are the cabinets most people prefer (the lower ones).  I'm going to tell him the screens are good, but the buttons have plenty of issues (either from the connector falling out, or they just break).  Also will mention the sticks need repair or replacement.  And finally sometimes the network stops working where machines won't link, and the far right machine (george st side) is laggy at times.

Any other 'constructive' comments welcome I will tell him, let's see what happens

Ikuya, are you the Ken player with the glasses? Very strong Ken, I didn't stand a chance!

And Rob, well...just the usual ass beating received lol. And yes, pretty much all the machines on that one side were busted. I was wondering why I kept killing the air in front of Guy with level 1 FA, and it took me a while to realize the MP was randomly malfunctioning. Argh.

GG to Captain, I thought you had left before I started playing again, so assumed it was someone else with similar tricks to you. Hilarious story by the way, were you alone when that guy threw the punch? No homo intended, but you're a pretty good looking guy ;) Can't blame the girl.

GG Jon, great pressure with Bison, I didn't realize the Ryu and Cammy were also you. Thanks again for the credit, I'll have to keep that $16 thing in mind next time.

And also, GG to that strong Hawk player, and the Zangief/Fei player. Fun games were had.

For the Zangeif player the last month or so is relatively new, I can't remember seeing him before that.

Yep see you next year Ikuya, your Ken so strong now, (You punished many things vs Ryu and Bison that other players don't punish. Though you ate allot of Cammy's stuff!) I look forward to playing you again! Have a good holiday.

nice to meet u Silhouette, yea I m ken player. r u Guy player right?
you are good to get back turn with 3F crLK, but i think you have habbit to use it too much.
after i noticed ur crLk timing is really fast then i punished it with frame trap, so you can make me confuse if u start delay tech too.
and DP, back dash, focus back dash... Rob has good balance to use that.

c ya next Jon plz be strong till i come back.
Cammy is damn strong that why I ALWAYS say "use her" for newer or players who want change character.

Great to see you again Dave, wasn't for too long, but GGs.

And to you Captain, I forgot to tell you, nice hat.

It was also cool to see more of the "execution guy" haha, I gotta say though, his Guile is fun to watch, but his Balrog is definitely more solid.

The Zangief/Gouken guy seems to be coming in more often these days, GGs were had, he's a very strong player.

Oh and GGs to the Fuerte that nobody knew how to fight, lol.

Yep it's true Galaxy World George Street has closed down!

I went to play games today to find the place closed even though I was just there Friday night.

So far the regulars have gone to Timezone. Timezone costs $1.00 (VIP) a go with best of 5 rounds, so not bad value of money. Timezone bonus dollar deals arn't as good as Galaxy World but I think you get more bang for your buck at Timezone. They currently have a School Holiday special of $30 and get $15 bonus credit IIRC.

Anyway had a fun time at Timezone this afternoon. GGs to Yun/Cammy/Adon guy, Ryu guy, Psycholicious and Rose guy who went undefeated with a 21 win streak! (Also GG Blanka guy and Akuma guy). I find everyone is more chatty at Timezone because you have to wait your turn and you're all united to beat the current winner. Just like Vanilla days!

So I hope to see you ALL go to Timezone. So far Market city doesn't have AE yet. Might just be a matter of time before they move the machines over BUT Town hall is a better location. Maybe we should come to a consensus if go to Market city or Town Hall? If Town hall should rename this thread Timezone match feedback.

BTW they are no longer Galaxy World they are now called City Amuesments. RIP Galaxy World 12/01/13.

TZ has an opportunity to rope in a steady stream of income if they had their finger on the pulse of Sydney's arcade scene.

They should pitch an offer to the former GW owners to pick up their cabinets and hit the ground running. Sounds like win/win to me. A guaranteed increase in business for TZ and the GW dudes get to offload some of their useless stock.

Then again, arcade owners in this city never struck me as the type to seriously invest in their hardware nor acknowledge the potential in a dedicated community of players. Also, SFIV cabinets aint cheap.

Skill testers and guitar games indeed.

Yes that's all true but we could also make a bit of effort buy hitting up their Facebook page to tell them we exist. If their Facebook page got flooded with people demanding Street Fighter they would have to pay attention no?

As I've said a billion times before it's all well and good complaining here but you've got to actually tell the powers that be. Here you are just preaching to the converted.

Instead you have xxx racing game fans demanding their latest game, then when it comes out I see hardly anyone playing it.... (Stay free Maxi Tune or whatever you are called).

But at least the fans of that game post on their freaking page.

 bad news

3 reasons why ''galaxy world george st'' new facebook account is fake;

1. log into yr oceania tekken-net account [if u have it], press arcade information, australia, and u'll see about 6 arcades locations WITHOUT GW GEORGE ST.

2.A regular tokken game player on ground floor said the former owner of gw owes the bank 1 million dollars, he is unable to pay the mortgage to the bank therefore his arcade is confirmed bankrupted. Liquidation inevitable, this tokken player use to have the key to enter gw private room , therefore he could be a former staff there as well as a regular player.

3. a former gw manager said he knows nothing about the ''reopening''.

 on top of this someone above said the premise is now up for lease. that makes it 4 reasons.

How do you know GW didn't have a solid enough turn over?
You severely under estimate the earning potential of token games and UFO catchers.

and no, "of course they didn't have a solid turnover, pft it's GW" is not a valid arguemt.
saying that you are OAF might be one though. 8)
Title: Re: SSFIV [SYD - Galaxy World] - Post match feedback
Post by: Gamogo on January 23, 2013, 04:47:34 PM
Perhaps. "Solid turn over" would suggest they'd be humming along however, with 'failed rent payments' not exactly being a trait of a successful business.

Still, deductive logic infers one of two things has happened:

1.) 1 million is a lot of money for them and it is enough of an upset to shut this branch down or it is deemed too much for them to satisfactorily recover through ongoing regular business

2.) The "1 million" dollar figure is bullshit and they are in the red a shit-load more, or there is more to their demise than has been reported

Frankly, I think the owner tried to play some AE and realised focus cancels worked once every 6 attempts, causing him to subsequently flip the table and shut the whole thing down if a fit of frothy rage. Either that or he ate his last wakeup Ultra.
