I was seeing how far I could get with Sagat, and then I forgot his Tiger Uppercut motion and then it all went downhill from there!

Napalm you really need to work on charge management, and stop jumping so much Guile has a cross up sure that doesn't mean use it every time u score a knockdown. ugh...

@mubress:
Well it seemed like an entertaining match, did you record it?
#154 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: No I didn't record. Your Bison seemed a lot tougher this time around though, ggs.

Me vs Renahzor aka Chocula89. 1:46 for sexy Ken combo and 2:46 for punching Cammy in the nose which I thought was amusing.

GGs stang!  man, 5 months off really makes a difference!  Thanks for the ass kicking, as usual.  ;)

#157 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@Renahzor: Yeah, really fun games Renahzor. Ass kicking as usual, pssh. I have been grinding since our 10-9 set at the end of last year and you decided to actually have a bit of variety in your life. My nerdom > your nerdom. I have no doubt we will be neck to neck again when you get your groove back.

Stang is a scrub. Our FR team name says so.

This man speaks the truth. Everybody should money match me immediately, you will not regret it.

Thanks, I think. Yeah it was a good match. Every round seemed to be either very close or entirely one-sided. Shame you didin't record. Theres always next time.

#164 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: That wasn't meant to sound dickish. Just that perhaps you've been practising or maybe you play better over a longer format?
#165 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1489 posts) -

No offence taken man. Nah that was my second match since the tournament. Just less pressure I suppose.
#166 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Me vs NateD0gg Ltd. Some of you may remember him from that video thread he made a while back asking for criticism regarding his performance using Ken at a tournament. Dude has a legit Ken and I actually enjoy fighting mirrors with him, crazy I know.
 
 

 

I don't hit unneccasary buttons during strings anymore! Yeah for me!
#167 Posted by SpecialBuddy (1110 posts) -
@Stang: I still heard some button presses. Try again.
#168 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@SpecialBuddy: Yeah, you have to push the buttons to make the people on screen do moves. Scrub.
#169 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1489 posts) -

So thats were I've been going wrong...
#170 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@Stang: I find mirror matches suck to play but I don't mind watching them personally. Decent Ken player.
#171 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@mubress: I agree, generally I hate mirrors with a passion, mostly because I use a character that is used by mashing scrubs who do nothing but mash reversal dp/super/ultra every time you do anything. Nate is like me and plays legit, so it is enjoyable, albeit occasionally frustrating.
#172 Posted by NateDogg (465 posts) -
@Stang:  GG's last night, you managed to post the vids up pretty fast it seemed..! Good shit  haha. Altho i wish that guile match never happened. Total accident, I felt lost using him. *damn random select box too close to Ken* lolz
#173 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

Stang how do you post the videos so fast?

#174 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@NateDogg: Yeah man, ggs as usual, enjoy playing you. Sadly I got butt raped by an Akuma today so there will be some super salty vids coming soon.
 
@Jeffsekai: I compress them using virtualdub. Using the mpeg 4 codec I can shrink 1.6 gigs worth of video (1 hour of video) to about 550 megs and it still looks ok. Usually the sets are quick and end up being around 800 megs which will shrnk to about 300 megs, I can upload that quickly.
#175 Edited by Necrotrophic (261 posts) -

thats good info for when I start uploading matches.
 
whenever I decide to stop being a cheap bastard, and  buy a cam. Seriously someone could hand me a million dollars and ill be iffy about buying a pack of gum.

#176 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@Necrotrophic: I am the same way, no biggie. It pained me to drop $100 on my flip. I am using it pretty consistently though so I don't feel as depressed now :)
#177 Posted by Thrawn1 (1340 posts) -

I posted this in the FRXII thread but I doubt any of you go there anymore. So watch it and see me fail. it was recorded by none other than lordofultima. 
 
 
 
 
 

       
 
On a side note, FRXIII was great. Ultima and specialbuddy hung out with the dallas tx 2d group for most of the time. (Both specialbuddy and I are from dallas) We made a lot of poor food choices, played a lot of casual matches, got ocv'ed my marn's team, and we even ocv'ed a team. I'm not sure how ultima and specialbuddy felt about the trip overall, but I'm glad I made the 12 hour drive. PRO TIP: When playing against specialbuddy, always pick honda and you'll win no matter what. He's guaranteed to get mad salty.

@Thrawn: Once Tristen drinks a little cough syrup he'll start up the crunk machine, just you wait.

@AniMoney:  I was hoping you were recording our matches today.
Easily the luckiest ultra I've ever seen, oh man that was hilarious for me, and probably the stupidest thing to you.
Nice job destroying me though.
#180 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Me vs dacrinton. I could not hit my links worth shit the entire set :/ Life sucked today. 
 
 

 
  Good games buddy.
#181 Edited by lordofultima (6206 posts) -

Had some matches with demontium, sets were mostly even, but holy shit do I hate electricity combos. My Honda beat that GREEN ASS UP.

 Everyone should switch to honda. It takes a lot less effort to do a lot more damage than with other characters. Then we could do honda mirror matches all day. I pick honda to hide my scrubbiness.

dang wish i could get on this.  i don't know if you guys play on PC though. 
 
also...really digging those 8-bit character sprites some of you guys have for your avatars LOL XD

#184 Posted by dacrinton (9 posts) -
@Stang: Haha thanks for posting one of the few videos where I don't get destroyed. This set actually went much better than the last one, but I am still making a lot of mistakes. I need to get better at rolling away or blocking tatsu cross-ups. Good games.
#185 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@dacrinton: No problem, good games. Towards the end you began to use Abel's pokes much more effectively and it pretty much shut down my kara game. And yeah, your only glaring flaw was not being able to block the cross up tatsus, beyond that you played well. I on the other hand could not for the love of god connect a standing jab after a crouchig short, that was getting really annoying!
#186 Edited by mubress (1517 posts) -

Tie Break match in the GB PSN Rage Quit Demon 2 Tournament! between myself and our host Mr Staticfalconar. It was a 3 way tie so I also played VicRattlehead. However, as I have already uploaded the game we played earlier in the tourney and both me and him play like ass in the tie-breaker, I won't bother to upload that one. 
 
This game ends up being the crucial one in the breaker as both me and Static beat Vic. Match is best of 7 sets and best of 3 games in each set.
 
So prepare to be dazzled by my ability to block right after teleporting. Come for the missed combos, stay for Honda's buttstomp.
  
 

#187 Posted by StaticFalconar (4849 posts) -

lols, yeah I remember that match. Even though it was best of 7 it might was well been best of 5 since only the first 4 games did we have some back and forth action, then i took a ride on the mindfucked train and you can basically see I was out of ideas. Should have lamed it up with blanka or something

#188 Edited by mubress (1517 posts) -

This game against my PSN friend jlsjustice kinda sums up why I don't like playing against Blanka.
 
He doesn't turtle and spam electricity or Blanka balls, he's one of the better Blanka players I've faced. He plays a lot of characters well and I even enjoy getting beat down by his Seth. When I play Blanka though most of what I normally do doesn't apply.
 
I should play more like I do in round 2 the whole time. A Blanka ball to the face makes you nervous though.   
 

         
  
Just to clarify; I don't think Blanka is a bad/lame/cheap character. I just have real problems playing him and therefore hate anyone that uses him :p

#189 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -
@mubress: You played way too passive once you got in on him. You really need to use constant dive kick pressure and then once it hits go into a combo then repeat.
#190 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@Jeffsekai: I'm scared of getting hit in the chops by an EX ball!!! Plus quite a few of my combos don't work on a crouched blanka which is mildly annoying.
 
Your right though :)

Don't scare, Rufus has the health advantage and a easy to combo into Ultra you can still win even getting hit by an ex up ball every now and then.

Bait out the EX's , do an early divekick and block, alot of Blanka's think an EX ball is a get out of jail free but if you bait it out they're open for business.

Pretty much, crazy what blocking will do.

Well I do so fuck Blanka. Just thought I would throw that out there.
#195 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@SpecialBuddy: But do you mean you hate the way most people play with him, or his style of play?
 
I've tried playing with him and find him to be a hard character to use (against good players that is, not nublets)
#196 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

El Fuerte Champ Mode Match.
 
 

   
It's really strange playing with fuerte as you can die almost instantly, but so can your opponent so it's really fun. Perfect one round, destroyed the next.

Who is Free1up?
#199 Posted by VicRattlehead (1398 posts) -
@Jeffsekai: a bison player that puts a load of matches on youtube
#200 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -
@VicRattlehead: Chef Fuerte FTW! And yeah the name threw me momentarily until I realised that the guy you mentioned is called free1up, plus he's in G1 I think.
