KOF Top 8

http://www.twitch.tv/vgbootcamp

EDIT: Mystery game tourney is CRAAAAZY.

Also, Mike Ross got 4th place AGAIN and Valle won AE over Wolfkrone but it doesn't matter since Injustice started at 9. #BigBabies

The fuck was that nonsense on the stream just now?

#103 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

I have never touched a KOF game before, but if I did my team would be:

King - Kyo/Kim/Benimaru - Mr. Karate

They look cool I guess?

#104 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

THE DOG IS OP!

#105 Posted by NegativeCero (2988 posts) -

Someone please tell me the name of the weird Japanese mystery game on the main stream right now. I must know.

This mystery game stuff is fucking amazing. Holy shit.

Divekick on stream 1, Persona 4 Arena on stream 2

#110 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

Oh my god that P4A finish, could NOT have been more epic. HYPE

#111 Edited by RecSpec (3798 posts) -

That finish on Persona 4 Arena was insane!

#112 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

I love that they are stamping people who get Frauded on Divekick.

#113 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19321 posts) -

The P4A Grand Finals were insanely exciting. Shadow Labrys killing a Mitsuru in the last round with an Insta Kill? Amazing.

#114 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

Damn, I'll have to check the P4A GF on the archive, I've been fixing the Divekick wiki page.

ChrisG chokes in Divekick finals, and Sanchaz takes it.

Though frankly Proguerammer seemed like a better player than both of them.

He does have a slightly unfair advantage, but I still think it's shitty that he got DQ'd both times.

Bara Bari Ball looks neat! It seems chaotic in a good way.

#120 Posted by GaspoweR (2937 posts) -

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Soul Calibur on DDR PADS!!!

#121 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

Hahaha took the round for pausing.

#122 Edited by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

Oh man Soul Calibur on Dance Pads was nuts.

#123 Edited by MikeFightNight (1106 posts) -

OMG! I've been away this whole weekend and just turned on the stream to see this baseball game, it's fucking amazing! I'm dropping everything in my life and going pro in it. It's going to be the future of e-sports.

#124 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19321 posts) -

Lethal League is an amazing video game.

#125 Posted by RecSpec (3798 posts) -

Lethal League is one of the best things I've seen this weekend.

He does have way more experience, but it would've been nice if one of them would've manned up and risked it.

#127 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

wow wow wow wow

#128 Posted by TyCobb (1961 posts) -

Lethal League was friggin' awesome. That was so much fun to watch.

#129 Edited by GaspoweR (2937 posts) -

Lethal League is LEGIT.

#130 Posted by jewunit (1056 posts) -

OMG Itz Ranmasama!

#131 Posted by GaspoweR (2937 posts) -

I just saw Dave Lang COP A FIGHT STICK from the stage on stream. :D

#133 Edited by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

As much as ChrisG was shaking his head you'd have thought he lost that match.

#134 Edited by jewunit (1056 posts) -

Why is Fanatiq there?

Also, why is Unknown being such a goon?

#135 Posted by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

Chris G's sneaky glance over at Ranmasama when he equalled the score at 1-1.

"Yeah, I bodied you."

#136 Posted by TyCobb (1961 posts) -

Loved seeing Ranmasama win that last game by just destroying Unknown. After that bullshit Unknown pulled earlier, I was just hoping for someone to destroy him.

#137 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19321 posts) -

Soul Fist wins!

#138 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

ChrisG looking like Micheal Phelps son.

#139 Edited by jewunit (1056 posts) -

Man, I don't care that Ranmasama lost. He is an excellent player. Did anyone else see him stun Morrigan and Doom with the headbutt and then block the Hidden Missiles and try to go in on them? Fantastic stuff.

Also, Chris G can probably build his own Aggro Crag now with all those rocks.

#140 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

Depressing this is over! Fun Weekend~!

#141 Posted by StarvingGamer (8128 posts) -

It was like NCR all over again. <3 that Haggar play and the Dormammu swap was so smart.

Hypest shit ever.

#142 Edited by FLStyle (4648 posts) -

Awesome job to Keits, his dad, his staffers, Level|Up Series, VGBootCamp, all the commentators and Kelly (who luckily wasn't injured when she took a tumble off the stage) doing the photography work.

And another UFGT comes to a close, I'll chat it up tomorrow and update the thread when interviews and stuff start hitting YouTube. Otherwise, make sure to check out next month's CEO 2013 preview/discussion! The final stop on the Road to EVO!

Awesome tournament. So many highlights. Loved every moment.

#145 Posted by Marino (4643 posts) -

Lethal League now has a page on the site. That shit was intense.

#146 Edited by GaspoweR (2937 posts) -

Great tournament, great experience!

EDIT: Too bad this isn't entirely true because Injustice started at 9. Kappa

#147 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

@gaspower: Why the heck were so many people salty about the start time of Injustice?

Well, I'm not too sure actually. It probably had to do with them having third most entrants (though technically Divekick even had more entrants than Injustice) and then it was too early and getting the respect they deserve by having it at a much later sh etc. The vitriol on Twitter was just intense to the point that I don't even like CDJr anymore. He was talking mad shit about keits, UFGT and Divekick (e.g."ufgshit", "fuck keits, fuck divekick", "it's a flash game") and it just soured my impression of him and a bunch of other people in the MK community. They came off as very petty, very immature, and very entitled. The funny thing too is that I found this out while I was in the venue on Friday when I bumped into Dave Lang and he told me about it. I didn't even know at the time that people were pissed. The only other controversy that I knew of was the one involving Fanatiq and the AGE panel.

EDIT: On a lighter note, the hypest tournament moment that is actually related to fighting games was HOW Bananaken won the P4A tourney. That shit was completely BONKERS.

#149 Posted by Chibithor (574 posts) -

I went to sleep real early yesterday and the stream was laggy anyway, so I missed most of the last day. I'm watching P4A now and Divekick's crowd is so loud in the background I'll have to see that next. Should I just watch all the mystery tournament stuff? I'm assuming Lethal League and the DDR stuff was there.

#150 Posted by Demoskinos (14722 posts) -

@gaspower: I'm going to have to go watch this Persona stuff... I had first stream only running today.
