A month or so back i found out that there was a Street Fighter 4 scene in my area after posting a bunch on the SRK thread I deiced to go (Really it was 2am when I found it and I had already decided to go). My first time going was less than amazing, I was still playing Balrog at the time and I didn't win a single match it sucked. Also going from Online where you see different characters every other game (and crazy combos) to a group of Sagat, Balrog and Ryu (Guile and Honda also made an appearance) was kinda depressing. I could not stand for this, so I went home dropped Blarog completely and went back to Blanka. This was due to there already being a Balrog there (2 even) and me not really liking his play style. Anyways I also orderd a glove the next week so that i can take my Blanka game to the next level.
Fast forward 4 weeks and my gloves have been here for a bit and my Blanka is back on top. Last Thursday I went to the meeting and payed the 2$ entry fee to compete in the tournament, my first match was up against a solid Bison (Bison is a bad match for Blanka) which kinda sucked. But hey that's life. I lost and went to losers, there I went on what I would describe as a rampage (not really) and beat 3 people (one of which doesn't play SF4 a lot) in a row. The last match (be fore finals) was against a very
solid Guile but I manged to beat him. Which bring me to the Losers Finals and I had to fight the same Bison. Here's a video.
Despite loseing I had a hige sence of pride, I had gone from free to third in the course of 2 weeks (starting when I got glove) I need to work on the Bison match-up as you can see but hey I'll eventually learn a few tricks.
Until next time, GET HYPE!!!
