Joffo if you're about right now we can do this, other wise it'll have to be a fair bit later, going out for foods soon :(

Sorry i wasn't on last night until late, and i was stereotypically drunk at that. Played a match as Viper against a G1 boxer. Useless. :)

Jesus. Pressure, pressure!

I'm gonna be shitting it when I play Joffo tbf. And EXCUSE ME mr funtimedave, 'no offense' but you caught me out with your noob skills. I never realised jumping backwards was such an effective tactic! :D

teehee :(

You gonna be about later tonight Joffo? My skills are weak since I've been on the ffxiii for the last week or so, but let's fight: like gentlemen.


lol just seen this. Yes I have been called out on my jumping style before but with my lack of hand eye co-ordination I rely on human psycology more than skill, get you used to a pattern and then BAM a light punch to your face as I forget the buttons again ;-) The issue is, once my opponent has it sussed I have little alternative to my game :-(. But yes jumpy jumpy makes me laugh and is a fair observation that others who have played me will agree with.

Well, dood is out after a sound beating from joffo! :(

Balrog vs Viper was a funny match, I snagged the first round as joffo found his feet. It then decsended into a bit of slugfest! Except one where I was just throwing out random moves, whereas joffo kept just missing epic good little combos and ultra setups.. Balrog 1 - 2 Viper

Ryu vs Ken was, quite frankly, a whitewash. I could do dragon punches, jumped in at the most obvious of times and totally froze up when I realised ultimately I didn't know what the hell I was doing. Lovely combos from Mr Masters though, Ryu was pit firmly in his place! Ryu 0 - 2 Ken

The final match was the only one I was satisfied with, despite the final score. Chunners came out all guns blazing, keen to use her standing roundhouse to keep the fatman at bay. Tensions rose from then on though, and the next two rounds played out pretty frantically! After a lolwhiffed ultra juggle from me (followed by epic taunts) Rufus proceeded to smash Chun to bits in the final round.. Hate those nasty link block strings :D Chun 1 - 2 Rufus.

Good games though matey! :blink: I need to keep on top of my game or I lose the skills so fast! :(

Yeah, good games dood! I really loved the viper vs boxer match because it was so edgy, just picking away at each other. I had to take some silly risks and ate a lot of big face punches. I got really, really lucky to connect that ultra! Also, those throw whifs at the end of rufus vs chun were hilarious! You were very unlucky not to take that match; brute force was what saw me through, but you played exquisitely. Shame your ultra passed right under me in the end, because you deserved to connect after all that came before! Ah. Good times.

Sounds like some good matches. Impressed with Dood being so close against Joffo's Rufus - I seem to recall the fat man humiliating me when we have played (not that this is a judge of skill).
So last years finalist makes it into the next round - congrats

Dood did you find your headset adaptor?

Played Onze last night, I won 3-0.

I didn't have my headset handy Onze, sorry. I could hear you saying something at the end there but I couldn't make it out. Tried turning up the volume but all that does is pump up the lobby music, not much help. Great games, and a a couple of fun friendlies after (sorry I was a bit throw heavy with Chun, not my strongest).

No headset = less fun. :(

Good games, but you gave me a good schooling. Good pressure with all characters, I think I would have faired better if I'd of warmed up a little instead of getting straight into the action from work. Although I don't think it would have helped me too much.

At the end I was saying that friendlies need a headset and as lag seemed to creeping into the matches I decided to call it a night.

Congrats to Hegg - he is into the Semi Finals.
Just Psyduck and Sith to play and I can draw the next round. Well played guys - it is impressive to see the games turned round so quick and the doffing of one's hat to the better opponent. The Fifa thread is all about how the game beat me not the other player.

(We shall ignore my whinging about usb issues okay and if it wasn't clear dood was the better player and deserved the win - it is just fun to whinge)

Just played Psyduck and in somewhat of an upset I won!

Ryu 0-2 Blanka
Ken 2-1 Ryu
Balrog 2-1 Dhalsim

Very tight and tense stuff. Can't believe I won after not playing for several months.

Cheers mate.

LMFAO - Indeed. Bloody hell. I have been in meetings all day and just come back to this.
Don't get me wrong I had no idea how good Sith was before the match up and had never played Psyduck it was just he won last time and when he arranged the cross forum games I picked up he was tasty.

So congrats to Sith, commiserations to Psyduck and it seems we will have a new reigning rllmuk SFIV champion to hold their head high going into SSFIV.

I will do the draw etc this evening - sorry about that but got to play catch up at work.

EDIT - bollox to work. The semi final draw is live

Mr Hegg, when do you fancy booking your place in the final playing our match?

I feel like I'm in the final scene of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. I'll come out firing but there's not much of a chance of survival. :wub:

We have our first finalist. All hail the Hegg. Always looked like a likely contender and now has the chance to gain glory for his fighting prowess. Will Joffo make it to the final to revenge last time's defeat or will the surprise package known as Sith make it to the final game. Stay tuned for more exciting drame in SFIV on de bus.

Well done Hegg, bad luck Cale.
