As I got to actually go to this one, I got to observe a lot more than I normally would get to:

  • Predictions for the 4 events, 100%
  • My joystick doesn’t work on PS3’s which meant having to use endure relearn how to use a controller on the casual machines.
  • The videos I took of the matches are coming up corrupted.  If I can fix them, I’ll post them.
  • SFxTekken cosplay

    Because we needed to be reminded about liking SFxTekken between every event.

  • Having only heard bad things about SFxTekken and never playing it, much to my disapointment, they were all true.  Watching hours of blocks followed by more blocks followed by combos that kept getting dropped, it’s no wonder 1/5 of the rounds went to time over.  Never have I seen this before nor have I ever been bored watching a Street Fighter tournament before.
  • Gamerbee seemed to have learned a bit from his loss to Infiltration at Evo2012 and with the homefield advantage, made for a much closer match.  Fewer Jaguar Kicks, more footsies and baiting out Wraths of Raging Demons instead of eating them almost worked.
  • Don’t test Poongko’s or Infiltration’s reactions, you will eat their ult.
  • Lots of Adon players in Taiwan, myself included.  I wonder why that is…..
