    ggs to all, i had a very fun day.
    shame no injustice got recorded as some mega hype was missed, sure theres always next time :)

    thanks to ayjay and team for putting in on and like i said to ayjay thanks for letting injustice run 3/5, the way the game is meant to be played :D

    dunno full placements of injustice as lost brackets on way home but from what i remember...

    1.luke (zod/black adam)
    2.nutrient (superman/doomsday)
    3.lar (MMH,ares)
    4.1M3L (scorpion)
    5.bush (green lantern)
    5.coffey (MMH,black adam)

    roll on the next one :cool:

    Really think we need to do something about how we record IJ

    Xbox version seems ideal for convenience tbh


  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 25,868 Mod ✭✭✭✭Doctor DooM


    Great day, lots to think about!

    Recording IJ isn't that bad, it's just we were buggered for time.

    Hey guys, I just wanna say thanks to the organizers for the fantastic job, and thanks to everyone I played for the awesome matches. This was only my second tournament, and the first I had to travel to, but I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I would love to come back again for the next one and show you what the new generation of fighting game players can really do!

    Thanks to everyone for being cool to my little (big) brother. He had a great time playing casuals, getting on stream/mic and getting to find out what a boojum burrito is.

    Congratumalations to DT and Cog for winning UMvC3 and AE, and Luke for winning that game with Batman in it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 105 ✭✭MelficeVKM


    Had a good time, ggs all, thanks for putting it together! Looking forward to the next one

    GGs man (Cammy player from your group), your Honda is really solid, if you keep coming to tournaments you'll be showing really good results in no time.

    Also GGs to everybody else I played and to all the organisers. Well played to Chris for the victory and especially to Fergus - I honestly thought you'd win today Gus, you were playing the best I've ever seen you play and I hope you're still interested in AE because you are seriously sick at the game.

    I'd check it out... but I got a tenth stamp on my card today so I guess I'll just get another boojum one instead.

    Also, say what you will about the XGC's monitors, but having as many casuals as you wanted along with streamable bandwidth seemed pretty slick to me.

    Apologies again for my laziness yesterday but 3 hours travel each way on less than 3 hours sleep and a hangover was going to be too much for me. Really, really enjoyed the stream, though; excellent job by everyone running it and commentating. It stood up to any professional stream I've seen.

    Thanks man, I think one of my main problems is that I have very little experience playing next to people, it's all online, and I know how much that affects you during real life gameplay. As well as the fact that I've only really been seriously playing fighting games since AE came out, and I've yet to mature as a FG player, as evidenced by my abuse of reversals. But I promise you, I will return and I will be better!

    I thought you played great for your first proper tourney. I was the Ryu you faced in losers. Be careful of reversalling when someone is doing the same safe jump/OS on you over and over. You gotta learn to recognise it. That's a tough match though I thought you played it very well. Very patient!

    Gotta say, I was perfectly happy with my third place given that I put the winner into losers in the first place! I feel like that salt shaker needs to find a new home next to the angry face ;)

    Not salty at all, I can recognize when I'm being outplayed, simple as, had to do another GF in Injustice afterwards so it all worked out I guess

    You would have beat me too 3-0 had you not dropped ALL your combos.

    Hope can see all the Marvel players attend next time

    Likewise. I know plenty of folks often have their reasons for not showing up, but there were really only 5 UMvC3 players there. This terrifies me that UMvC3 will get dropped in future tournys. AyJay mentioned this himself and I'm not able to say such a decision would be unjustified unless there's players wanting to play it.
