    Air Throws are just not as good as they were in 4, which is a shame because I love them.

    Command air throws can be fun when they defy physics.

    bardock should definitely have one super that is him developing the fake moon light technology and then another that is him turning into the giant monkey (but it can only be done if he does the moon light science one first)

    Heads up Injustice people. Use your regen tokens before Thursday, as they are getting reset due to the Legendary Edition upgrade. Also, if there is room in a PA guild, I'd love to join one.

    Speaking of locals, is anybody here in the DMV region? Xanadu is closed until they get a new location set up, and it has me thinking I should find a closer place anyway.

    Nice! Long Beach would be a bit far for me (the northbound 405 during rush hour is not a thing I'll willingly subject myself to) but it's good to know there are other options. For perspective, I live 8 miles away from Esports Arena. One day it took me over an hour to get there. I *hate* traffic and it's the primary reason I don't get out to events more.

    I feel that all over

    Used to be cuz I was scared to drive and embarrassed to be seen in public

    Now I just don't want to drive and then pay gas venue and entry fee just to lose an extra like 25 bucks a week on top of time spent driving in L.A. traffic

    To get to Long Beach I only need to take the 5 to a stretch of the 710 so it's not a holocaust of a drive

    So apparently that's it for Final Round for the foreseeable future. Cause seems to be a lot of drama and personal burnout.



    Not gonna speak on the drama but a shame seems like that was one of the few big southern tourneys out there.

    The big drama is that lots of people dont feel like they get their moneys worth and the bad reputation caught up with them.

    By all accounts this past year ran great but it takes time to build back this reputation.

    The south has ceo twice a year which is run very well. KiT has become very popular as well. Not worried about the regional impact.

    Sad to see fr go bc i like Larry. Would prefer instead that he keeps improving fr but not shocked its come to this.

    Also Final Round as the start of every CPT in SFV was a cool thing, sucks to see it go.

    the internet told me that FR the year SFV came out was a big dumpster fire.. and i guess he tried hard to step it up, but he had to fight the headwinds of lower registration

    holding these premiers at big con halls feels a little... overkill, puts a lot of stress on the whole thing

    Yeah I only went to FR once like 4 or so years ago to play SC5.

    I remember at one point we were waiting an hour or two mid-bracket for our tourney to start back up. And I remember my brother also had bad experiences in the past

    But that was back in the day when many tourneys were ran kind of poorly(esp if your game wasn't SF) and I hadn't been keeping up with recent years.

    I can confirm your statement about the first year of sfv.

    He used a venue that had hosted fr for the last several years. Small area plus smashgg crashing that weekend was a perfect storm that was the last straw for a lot of people.

    Size never seemed to be the issue to me, tbh, but once again this was years ago before the CapCup numbers started.

    Problem always seem to be it was being managed poorly.

    Like we had to keep track of our own bracket at one point.

    My friends and I found the "24/7 BYOC lounge" at one point, it was 3 folks and a Wii. There was a VF1 cabinet and two non-functioning racing games, but no other TVs or setups, so it was bring a lot more than just a controller.

    Other than that, FR ran very smoothly this year--incredibly so, really--but it's my only point of reference.

    People have been hard at work on the Cross Tag Battle DLC silhouettes, and I am happy with quite a few of the discoveries.
    vuA5qTq.jpg

    Platinum
    Labrys
    Yuzuriha
    Mika
    Nine
    Naoto
    Hakumen
    Orie
    Vatista
    Jubei
    Izayoi
    Akihiko
    Aigis
    Carmine

    4 Silhouettes unidentified, that I can see? One has to be Kanji and Yang probably doesn't have one yet.

    Seeing people saying Terumi, Mai, and Mitsuru for the White, Pink, and Orangish? ones respectively. Though I don't think that magenta blob is Kanji.

    That would put the roster at 17/10/9/4 which is just unappealing to look at, and I don't see Akihiko and Aigis without Mitsuru, so probably swap out Terumi for, i don't know, Merkava?

    twice annual ranked grind evening complete, so i can get casual matches against people who aren't total gorillas. and certainly, the first super plat i got matched with played like a gentleman

    that was worth the two hours of sadness

    That said I will say one more thing.

    I think expanding after SFVs first year was maybe not the best idea.

    It was a new game and the first big CapCup. Hard to see what registration was gonna be at after things leveled off.

    I can't stress to you how crowded it was that first year. He felt tremendous pressure to increase the venue size.

    SNK Heroines demo on WNF... probably over with by the time anyone reads this

    can't put my finger on it but the game looks really good and smooth to me. its not "great" graphics, but there's something about it that seems distinctly higher quality than KOF, even though it appears to be the same engine

    since its apparently got tiny baby easy controls, if this game is even close to playable online, i'm fucking stoked

    they say it's basically pad only unless they find a way to bind the stick controls to an arcade stick before it comes out
