An AWESOME Tourney Experience!!

Nice to meet you too. :) Well... Most of the competitive players are actually around Boston. There are, however, players from Western Mass, but they are not as competitive as the Boston Crew. We have people hosting weeklies, so you might be able to attend some meetings if you live close by.

Take care, man. :D


And congrats, Saikoro. :) Don't mind the TZers w/ their Saikoro punch lol. Most of us just try to find something fun in the serious forum like TZ. (The Saikoro punch does sound fucking awesome lol)

Edit: WTF!?! o.O" I saw that TODAY, 5 days later -.-
Guess you were bored :P
But I enjoyed the story too...read it ages ago though. You made me become active
again, Jem ^^

lol.. did I not tell you I'd written this? Hmmm.. guess not. I was going to when you got home but I guess we just had too much fun doing other stuff and I forgot.

What really happened was that I started writing the post and before I sent it, realised I was logged on as you and couldn't be bothered to copy it, log out, back in and then paste. That's just waaaaay too much effort.

I should have gone on a posting-frenzy and not told anyone it was me. Would have been funny (for me at least) But you know, I don't have the heart for pranks like that.

I competed in a Ranbat yesterday near Chicago.. It was my first human opponents in T6, so I didn't expect much from my performance.. I had a great time and met some really cool people! I had to take the train then get picked up by a cool guy I met on SRK to ride with him to the Tourny.. My first match was against Syxx using Asuka, he beat me 2 in a row, as expected.. Then I fought a guy named Dam using Baek, it went to the final match but I got the win.. That put me in line to fight the guy that brought me, he picked Bob at first and I beat him, then he picked Miguel and beat me the second two matches.. So I took 7th, which meant I met my goal of not going 0-2 my first time out.. Plus my placing earned me 3 points toward the next month's events! Overall, I think I learned a lot and hope to do better next time, and maybe get more casuals in!!

Congratulations on your T6 tourney Yoshimattsu! 7th is great, you'll definitely do better in the next time. Did anyone get recordings of the matches?

Nope, there was a guy recording his friend's matches, but none of mine were recorded... Thank you for your kind words!! We get by with a little help from our friends!!

I never got a chance to go to arcades when I was a kid, since we lived so far from a single one. So, I've always wanted to go to an arcade, but I'm only a casual Tekken player. I have a feeling that, if I go to an arcade, they'd all completely destroy me.

Isn't there a way a casual player like me can start the arcade scene so late and still have fun?

Well if you're in America, and in an area other than a large metropolitan area or California, you will have trouble finding an arcade that even has a T6 machine. And if you're in California, the competition at the arcades will be very tough and therefore a difficult place to start. That being said, trial-by-fire can be very effective, and I'm sure you'd have fun either way! Plus you can learn a lot from people you encounter!

Yeah, learn how much I suck at competitive video game fighting! :P

But regardless, thanks for the advice! I know of an arcade that's actually fairly close to where I live, and I told myself that I was going to go to their Friday Night Fights, but I chickened out. I was tired anyway. >.>

I never had the courage or ability to play against others. Only if I play for several hours every day, do I ever stand even a 1 in 3 chance of winning. Now I have no one to play against and learn from too. I don't have T6 yet. I was waiting until I had work and was settled in Germany before I took my PS3 over and bought the game. Maybe one day I'll get it.

Also, I was playing tekken a few nights ago and I really couldn't do a thing. I was never good but I can hardly remember anything anymore. I can't play online either because my ex boyfriend often used my profile to may rank is way higher than my ability.

Anyway, I say give it a go, be brave, don't worry if you lose and even if you do, just think, it could be MUCH worse!! :D

I am getting so Jealous here... Such Nice experience and So much of competitive gaming.......

Damn I cant find my self a better partner to play with.... I mean that guy is pit bull and uses law king and bryan all the time.....

I would rather live in some place of world where i can see tekken a lottttttt More :)

:-X

That was a very enjoyable read, thank you. I regularly host Tekken 2 tournaments out of my basement, it's very enjoyable. I would play tekken 6 except for the fact that my ps3 disk drive is broken and im running low on the cash. So ps1 it has been and we have been having a blast with the origins! I would recommend trying one of the older games and doing them in an in-person tournament, its a ride. Honestly, it sounds weird but it definitely worth it. Does anybody else do this?
