No breaks, you'll pay with more urgency.  The focus from that will make you a GOD!  
 
Does anyone have a flowchart update for Super?  Im thinking of swappin my main to Ken, I hear hes god tier compared to cammy.  C/D?  
 
god damn I love SF4 board offtopic threads.

@Renahzor: I honestly don't have any details about Ken in Super, I don't even know if his new ultra is fadcable. 
 
Confirm/deny Ken>Cammy....DENY! You almost wrecked me months ago when we played.  A dude by the name of B0KKIN makes me cry tears of blood when he picks Cammy, and it is not even his main! I got your back about switching to Ken though, I have a feeling you would rep well.
 
And not cool for not letting me take breaks, holding piss causes cancer. True story.

I love watching this shit unfold! And Cammy makes me cry like a f*cking two-year old... Cannon Spike, Cannon Drill, repeat ad nauseum!

Like the man said NO breaks! This is a test of endurance.

@Adamantium: No kidding, what irks me is that those damn cannon spikes come out so damn quick, no matter how much I mash I lose to the damn things every time. Remember though, down-back>Cammy!

Do not listen to this mad man.  The best way to beat cammy is to never block.  True story.

Thought while this thread was here I may as well post some tips I gave to Scooper previously.
 
As somebody else mentioned, one of your greatest assets is fireballs, so I won't go into that. All I will say is that following up a fireball from not quite full screen distance with a fierce dash palm (or other strengths depending on distance) will sometime catch them unaware. Also, if you knock them out of the air with strong or fierce fireballs, be prepared to follow it up with a dash palm as well.

Cr.mp/hp is your friend. Both are surprisingly quick, so resetting after a back grab with either, then straight into demon flip dive kick can often catch people off-guard and net you an easy, massive damage combo (and likely put them in a corner). The combo to follow up with is basically what you should use whenever you can land it - demon-flip dive kick, st.hp, ex/dash palm -> dash, tatsu... obviously they will be expecting this, which is why mix-up is so useful with him, but this is his BnB. 
 
If you've already thrown this out, crouching mp links into hurrice/EX hurricane kick, as does crouching fierce, so you could try that. Demon-flip mix-up is a great tool at close range, so throw out the grab and low kick at close ranges to catch them off-guard. Be wary of SRK though.
 
Play around with different mix-ups. Jumping mp (if you meet in the air) to cr.hp works I think, and considering they likely haven't seen it won't expect whatever you follow up with ( sometimes just another grab to hurricane kick will suffice). Jumping lk then dashing will often find you on the other side of them as they land, which can be mega hard to prepare for, so if you can ever get that to come out in game its very useful.
 
Looking back over this, it totally makes me want to play him again. 
 
Edit: This thread has taken THE TURN!!1 I'm placing a bet on the first to 50. My money would probably go on SpecialBuddy/ I know for a fact after the gym I'm not capable of thinking, let alone playing 50 games of SF4. This game is thrown.

First to 50 is stoopid. Whenever I play that much both of us start dicking around with random characters and mirror matches.

Yeah, nobody is going to do that. That is way too much Street Fighter IV. Most people will get bored by 25 matches.

First to 50? Errr. It's your funeral.

#62 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Looks like the haters are out in full force! Last massive session I had was against the beast Flushes......yeah we know how that turned out.

#63 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -
@Stang: Yeah, he destroyed you.
#64 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -
@Scooper: In the sense he beat me twice out of like 35 games, you are right. I fucked up not shutting him out completely :(

Haha, dude I remember that thread! Didn't he try to blame it on lag and your "cheap tactics"? Lolz, funny stuff.
#66 Edited by Stang (4726 posts) -
@Adamantium: Yep, he blamed everything in the world besides his lack of ability. It is all good, in the end I have a picture that is capable of shutting him up in the wild scenario he decides to talk shit.
 
Hedgehog on the other hand is not an asshat, so there will be no shenanigans. He is known to rage quit though.
 
edit
 
Just to intimidate Hedgehog
 


YOU ARE NEXT SON!

I wouldn't get bored, but I certainly wouldn't be playing at my best. 
 
I played a 90 game session with a dude on my friends list once. After about the first 50 we just started doing Akuma mirrors, Abel mirrors, Seth mirrors, basically all the fun mirror matches in the game.
#68 Posted by Stang (4726 posts) -

Hedgehog ain't free, so there will be no dicking around. If there is, I will fly to Texas and swiftly kick him in the ass.

True, but he rarely ever plays seriously and he's been having an identity crisis concerning his main lately.

90 games? Are you fucking insane? I can barely do a first to ten (as we all know) much less even 50.

Hey dude I'll give you first to 10 with my 2 day old Seth. You have to be able to do something with that.

We'll do first to five one day, then first to five another day. First to ten is too much for me. I got bored the other day after like five matches. I can't do first to ten to save my life.

Nope, excuses are not allowed here, especially from him. If I pick Ryu the entire time and lose, can I blame that? He is not my main obviously. 
 
Hedgehog is decent with everybody, if he wants to pick Dan the whole time, fine by me. I will be recording all of them, so it is up to him. Street Fightin is serious business.

I might even stream this monster of a set if I feel like it. 
 
On the topic of how long this will go lets go to 20 instead. We both got other stuff we could be doing.

Yes stream please. When is this goin down?
#79 Edited by Stang (4726 posts) -

I need to clean a bit around the house, but I am good to go in about an hour/hour 30. I will be recording like I said.
 
edit
 
I will be on at 5 warming up, need 15ish minutes after that.

#80 Edited by lordofultima (6207 posts) -

I did best of 100 with West before, so you could say that's a first to 50 or something, even though he must have won 65 of those. and I've also got 79 wins on Gambit (not too hard to do).

#81 Posted by AniMoney (957 posts) -

First to 50 is totally the new first to 10. 
  
School got cancelled for me again for the next 2 days, so I can play people tomorrow if anyone wants to go first to 50. <3 snow 
 
That's a serious offer if you have a microphone and a good connection.
