Official Matchmaking Thread

#101 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Pessh: This is for you and hasi specifically : lets never talk of those matches again. Any of them. Especially the last one.
 
And I'm going to have to get a headset; felt like a spare tool typing while you guys were bantering.
#102 Edited by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@GetEveryone: The end of that last round was ridiculous, did pretty well up until that point though
 
Need to work on my D some more, anyone good up for some 1v1s this week?
#103 Posted by VicRattlehead (1400 posts) -

#104 Posted by Chubbaluphigous (571 posts) -
@VicRattlehead: I'll play, PS3.  My PSN is Chubbaluphigous.  Keep in mind that I am still very very new to this and a I totally suck.
#105 Posted by VicRattlehead (1400 posts) -

Good matches last night everyone in the 'No Jaditz Club'. You're all getting too good for me. Think I lost 8 in a row at one point.
#111 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: Dude you were tearing assholes apart last night, went on like an 8 win streak, what are you on about
#112 Edited by thegoldencat7 (1501 posts) -
@Pessh: 
Ach, you should have seen me earlier. Was playing so bad Vic started mocking me by spending a round doing nothing but fierce dragon punches.
#113 Edited by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: I leave at the worst times. As soon as these exams are over I'm going to spend a decent evening online. Some great competition we all get going atm though.
 
Tactical team mission to kill all the Balrogs?
#114 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@GetEveryone: All two of us lol, seems like no one plays him anymore.
#115 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1501 posts) -
@GetEveryone: 
Yah I came back on later and started using my main like a normal person. 
What? Everyone vs Pessh?
#116 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@thegoldencat7: Vic mains Rog too
#117 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Pessh: @thegoldencat7: 
Basically...yes :)
 
I don't feel great about using Ken in the games; I think there's this expectation to play incredibly well every time you use your main, so I've been enjoying just dicking about with the other characters. Offline it isn't too much of a worry, but if there's any lag (or anything else I can use as an excuse) I just get agitated.
 
Haven't played your Bison in ages though, so I might have to whip him out for some practice.
#118 Edited by thegoldencat7 (1501 posts) -
@GetEveryone: 
Know what you mean there. Even though they're who you're most comfortable with, theres an added pressure to do well with them. We did have a Bison/Ken match on day 1. It went the full distance, and was unbelievably tense. Thats probably why we haven't had any more.    
 @Pessh:
 
True enough. Was using Ken the last few times I've seen him though. Ive used Rog quite a few times now. Just copy your tactics and it seems to work.
#119 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -

Good shit this eve', gentlemen. Not sure about the whole splitting up the the crew like that though. Maybe do it randomly next time or something. Seemed pretty unfair and a little biased too. Scrubs and pros? We're certainly not the latter, that's fo' sho' (CONDOR!)
 
Anyway, there are still shite-loads of new faces to be initiated. Anyone know what happened to MikeFightNight? Haven't seen him on since the Ibuki carnage.

#120 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@GetEveryone: He messaged me for an inv yesterday, was afk though when he sent it. Doesn't seem to be on much, could be down to timezones. 
 
Thinking about maybe doing a tag tourney, but tournaments are bleh and exams soon =/
#121 Posted by Sweep (8986 posts) -

I am online right now, ready to fight. Anyone up for a brawl?

Can you put up my timzone?  I in Central Time or -6 GMT I think.  Since I have a goofy sleep schedule, I'm on Live in the afternoons.

#123 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@Pessh:  You were going to set one up? I say go for it. Ours have generally been successful, bar the last one I planned, but that was my own laziness/uni stuff. I'd be up for it. Do we have to organise our own teams though?
#124 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -
@GetEveryone: Dunno, guess people would prefer to chose their own partner. 
 
(If anyone asks Vic you're automatically banned)
#125 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1501 posts) -

I'm in favour of this plan.  
So its settled then I'll team up with Vic and we'll both use T.Hawk (costume 12.) 
 
Aye the only problem I forsee is imbalanced teams. Perhaps you could assign them based on seeding; experienced player with beginner, etc.
#126 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -

I'm going to see if Vegas is up for it/wants to partner up. I like his style.
 
*runs away like a schoolgirl*

#127 Posted by Pessh (2459 posts) -

I'll make a thread later then

#128 Edited by VicRattlehead (1400 posts) -
@thegoldencat7:  i honestly didnt mean any offense.. had that ken masters song on and thought id go along with it  and mash out some dragon punches
same if i pick dan i dont mean any offense i just like playing as him
:D 
metallica concert for me tonight so no sf games :( 
unless you lot are on at like 5 in a morning
#129 Posted by mubress (1517 posts) -

Online now for the first time in a while if people want to play. Going to be on for the next few hours or so.

#130 Posted by GetEveryone (4458 posts) -
@VicRattlehead:  I can't speak for everyone, but I don't actually mind fighting Dan. He isn't as shit as people make out, but it does throw me off a bit when I see him on the versus screen.
 
Enjoy the gig, dude.

Ach no worries. Am often guilty of simillar shenanigans with Bison. And I deserved it for my Fei-long sandbagging.
 
Its highly unlikely, but I'd never rule it out.

Good matches!  I always like the cammy/rufus matchup, its always exciting having 2 rushdown type characters.
#141 Posted by Chokobo (1228 posts) -
@Renahzor: Definitely.  It was a good time.  :)  Haven't played many Cammys so it's always good to get some practice in against a good one.
#142 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -

Anyone in the UK or around wanna play some matches. I might be able to record them if you want too.

#143 Posted by TheLegendofLuke (563 posts) -

I'm up for a couple of games, don't expect much of a challenge though.

#144 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -
@TheLegendofLuke: Cool. I added you. Hop on whenever you want.
#145 Posted by TheLegendofLuke (563 posts) -
@Scooper: Cheers for the games. Now to get on the replays and see where I'm going wrong. 
#146 Posted by Scooper (7881 posts) -
@TheLegendofLuke: You're not going wrong anywhere to be honest. I've just played SFIV for waaayy longer then you. For you only to of started playing not long ago you are great. You know the moves for every character you play which is 100x better then most others who have been playing the game the same amount of time.
#147 Posted by Kumo (126 posts) -
@Stang:  Haha, thanks. I'm trying. Still got a long ways to go, though.
#148 Edited by AniMoney (957 posts) -

I can't believe I'm asking this but does anyone here play a good Sagat? I haven't fought that many Sagats in super and I want to see how that matchup has changed. 
 
Edit: Also looking for a good Deejay and a good Zangief to spar with.
