Previous engagement scheduled on tournament assigned day that I can't get out of. It is still early ComMando. Alot of the Heavy's could use a extra week to secure their travel plans. I propose moving Vector Strike 2 to the 30th. A day in which team Inflamed Virtuaroid could appear. Also the Labor Day holiday would give those Heavy's a planned extra travel day. Everyone could be a winner! Eh, anyway... Thank you for your consideration.

Does anyone second this tournament date change for your selfish reasons too?

Shot heard across the bow! One person's misery is another's reason to celebrate? Now, see a little light at the end of the tunnel. A glimmer of hope rises. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. No one said Last Call ! Yeah, yeah ... May be possible for team Inflamed Virtuaroid & this website host Mentholmoose to appear at Vector Strike 2! But we wait for now. Official announcement, if so will come.

I will also attend this! I was unable to attend the first one.

Since I am coming all the way from Washington, D.C., it would be great if anyone who is in driving distance could also attend so I can meet you in person. Also, I am a married man now, so my playing time has been limited and will continue to be, and this might be the only time I am able to "get away with" this. I hope to see you there!

Cool... new ringers are showing up for Vector Strike 2! I have a family thing I'm doing on date of VS2. Sorry, I won't get to this one. Let's just say, "we cut the fat." I just am hoping I able watch live. At worst will need to see the stream archive on IEbattlegrounds. Guess I'll have time concentrate on getting better at this, my favorite game series! VS3... Inflamed Virtuaroid will return!
I wish all that competes in VS2, will do their best!

The tournament was a lot of fun! I have to give a huge thanks to temjinalpha (@TemjinAlpha on Twitter) for running it and handling the stream! I tried commentating for the first time and really enjoyed it! I'll do it again next time is nobody minds. 8-) The venue, Super Arcade (@SuperDojo), is really great after the recent renovation (and it is still being improved). The new casuals setup is simply perfect for using Twin Sticks. The tables are absolutely rock solid.

The turnout for VOOT unfortunately was lower than expected, however, the games were all high quality. People weren't rusty like last time. Since there were only 5 people, we had a round robin. The top three were:
Schooly D - undefeated / 4-0
MentholMoose - 3-1
PhantomPhotonX - 2-2

Most games were really close. I couldn't do much against Schooly D, but I put up a good fight with PhantomPhotonX and just managed to take the win.

The games were a lot of fun, and it was great to play against Menthol and Schooly in person! The games against Menthol were extremely close. Too bad for the ridiculous flight delays and low turnout. Next time, let's make it even better! We discussed having a side VOOT tournament at the SoCal Regionals, which should be in the February-March timeframe, so you'll be able to get your fill of not just VOOT, but other fighting games as well! I would gladly go again if there is enough interest.

Let's hope I can talk my wife into going to CA again. Maybe she will even come with me next time. :mrgreen:
