Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

VOOT tournament is 5:00 Thursday? Gah, my flight doesn't get in until about 6:00. :cry: Let me know how things shake out. I have a Hori stick for the 360, and I have a Saturn stick with a TotalControl3 converter for DC. I doubt I'll have room in my suitcase for both. The Hori stick is higher quality...

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

I messaged Phantom on XBL and he said he's probably going. Playing against him without lag seems terrifying! :lol:

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

I'm registered and got my plane tickets, so I'll be there. My twin sticks just barely fit in my suitcase; not sure how safe they'd be in there, though. Too big for carry-on. :shock:

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

Okay, I got that time off work, so that's taken care of. Anybody else interested in going? Even if there's no VOOT to be played, I might go anyway. It looks like there's plenty to do and I want to go to one of these at least once just to see what it's like.

Re: MD/DC/VA MagFest - VO:OT & VO:F

I might be interested this year. I should have went in 2011 but didn't, and this year I wanted to go but work got in the way. I'm pretty terrible at VOOT these days, but it could be fun regardless. I wonder if Phantom would still be interested in going. Big ass Hori twins sticks might be a challenge...

Re: Weekly Best of 9 Challenge

Code: Select all

[Challenger: MechWarrior]
September 15, 2011
DaveRudolph (Specineff) vs MechWarrior (Dordray)
Public Port [any stage]
5-4
First loss for neo helbeast and first win for me. Finally.

Also, I just noticed that Menthol no longer has 200 gamer points. I don't know how I feel about that.

Re: Weekly Best of 9 Challenge

I would suggest playing characters that you do play and work on improving them instead of playing characters that happen to do better in certain matchups. I wasn't aiming for a favorable matchup; I was just cycling through all the VRs I'm familiar with. It just so happens that they're all good agai...

Re: Weekly Best of 9 Challenge

At least I've won more rounds each time. I'm like 3 more challenges away from a win!*

Also, I seem to have better success with my secondary VRs than Specineff in follow-up matches. Hmm....

*Assuming the challengers aren't Schooly, Phantom, and Aniking

Re: Any long-time pad players ever switch to twin sticks?

Yeah I thought it might be due to something like that. Is it possible to execute crouching attacks if the sticks aren't lined up perfectly (e.g., the right stick is pushed left and the left stick is pushed diagonally right/down)? It seems like you can and that it might have something to do with it; ...

Re: Any long-time pad players ever switch to twin sticks?

I've noticed that the speed boost you get from Specineff's walking cLW doesn't last nearly as long with twin sticks vs. doing it on a pad (at least when I do it). Does anybody have any theories why? Does it have anything to do with rowing? I'm not sure what twin stick movement the pad is simulating ...

Time for our Best of 9 Challenge? :)

I realize that actually playing the match is a mere formality, but I could be online then.

maybe we dont need to upload 5-0s? moral of this fight would be to warm up before fighting I think heh. bad map for spec as well. I just played poorly, no excuses necessary. :lol: I played some ranked matches earlier in the morning, almost losing to some scrubs (well under .500) several times. Did ...

Re: Weekly Best of 9 Challenge

I love being a wet blanket. Basically, every competitive endeavor we've tried since summer of 2009 has failed completely. Specifically, this kind of reminds me of Schooly's woefully underutilized ladder, which quickly descended into irrelevance at a time when we had more active players than we do no...

Re: EVO 2011

Phantom could've been in the MK one. I didn't realize any MK game was played competitively. :shock: I thought the whole series was considered a joke by serious fighting game players. I really hope that Sega releases a new VO 1v1 game... for both home and arcade. It would be so nice if there could b...

Re: Xbox Game Stats

I played VO4 for 300hours (3x more than VOOT) and the "community" plays VO4 as much as Halo Reach (10x more than VOOT) What how I don't think the bar charts are cumulative. :) When I hover over that chart it says I played VO4 for 23 hours (sounds right), and the community for 301 (wut).
