just saying, i sat down and played many many games with mr. mikethetv at shadowlooHQ and he's a super cool guy and doesn't reversal that much at all

i am too late to this conversation...

Cody's pressure is vicious, but it makes me less panicked than Yun's in general. I feel more comfortable blocking more and reversing less in that matchup.

I was surprised at how effective cr.jab instead of was for you when we played live, it's surprisingly good against Dee Jay because it halts ticks and beats LK Sobat, though it does expose you to getting hit by tight frame-traps.

His Mega Man Spark Mandrill one was also really good.

We can play a non-MM FT10 instead.

You can't stop reversalling -- I did that for a long time and it became impossible to defend against anyone -- but you have to pick and choose your battles carefully. Renzuo said something like 15% of the time is good, I'd agree with that. At least, anything over 30% is going to be a handicap.

Sounds good. It's looking to be a busy weekend with me set to do some commentary, potentially interpreting for some of the European players, and background helping with the event, but I'd like to take you up on that. If you want to spice it up, a couple of drinks worth as a wager would be cool with me as well.


The same goes for your wake up raw ultra at the end. I'd like to say it was a good read (no I wouldn't, figure of speech), but considering it came from you, that's unlikely. You tend to 'just do it' don't you, and that time your pure guess work hail mary just so happened to save you.

You caught me with the throw -> dash -> meaty palm setup enough times earlier in the match that I was watching for it and the palm's 23f startup is enough to react to, but like you said, online might have facilitated it, hard to say for sure. Frankly, I thought you'd just chip me with EX Upkicks in that situation since you had the meter to, I was actually very surprised you didn't.

You're right that I do go to reversals more often than I ought, and I'm working on scaling that back, though habits take time and effort to overcome. When Shadowloo Showdown rolls around, while I won't be taking you up on that money match offer, I hope we can get some offline games in, get the true measure of each other, and that my play, with the benefits of time and practice, will earn your respect (and not just the grudging kind).

Anyway Mike, based on your reply I can see you're honest in your evaluation of the game and any errors in judgment are simply that - not some pretense to superiority. And FWIW I'm sorry I called you a dickhead etc, I obviously jumped to the wrong conclusion there. Though not the best player, you're clearly a decent person.

Thanks for that and apology accepted, much appreciated.

He wasn't free. We both struggled with lag, but on the whole he made me work very hard for that. On balance I'd say he made more good decisions than I did, especially early in the set. He exposed a big problem in my footsies game, and I exposed one in his divekick/overhead timings. While I think he was being a bit hyperbolic about how retarded my use of slide was, he's right in that the slide is not generally a good normal against Yun (save for limited spacings/timings). I made some good adaptations late and caught two of his bad decisions with Ultra (including a sweet dash ultra that was one hell of a relief to hit). It always could have gone either way, and when Alucard uploads the video or you check the stream archive you can see all of that for yourself.

Also, while there are parts of Soji's attitude (and to a lesser extent, yours) that irk me, I'd rather not be invoked or involved in the on-going dick-waving contest between the two of you.

I'll join the group; I've been wanting to learn more about SC since  a housemate recently downloaded a Dreamcast emulator and SC1.

I'm planning to play, and commentate again. I'm fried from teaching already, so if I digress and talk about art history instead of gameplay, deal with it.  8)

We used an endless lobby for the last one since it ran double-elim and was streamed as a full event. I imagine it'd be the same this time.

To my understanding:

If it's an XBox 360 compatible stick, unambiguously yes.

If it's a PS3 compatible stick, it depends on the USB chipset, it may work, or you may need to buy an external hub in order to make it work.

I should be up for parmas with people at BAM. I know a good place, way better than last year's parma spot.

I'm re-opening my OHN challenge to Reece for a money match since we couldn't get it done at OHN for lack of setups. Doesn't need to be onstage, but, $25 FT7?

Very disappointed by k7aven6er's sportsmanship and pham87's connection. Others tonight, ggs!
