My vids from the event can be found in this topic:
http://nzism.alphaism.com/forum/index.php/topic,1432.0.html

Look forward to seeing pics and others vids soon!

Shouts to all I played:

StereoMonkey: Good match with your Bison bro, we need to play some more.
Guileguy: Your Guile is as beast as ever bro. Watch the booms against Chun though because good Chun's will dash ultra no problems.
Hue: The match against your Juri was pretty fun, I liked that you picked her both games. We couldn't be sure which character would have the advantage in that matchup so good job testing it out.
Kevin: I was hoping this match would of been my first win at a tourny against you, I was wrong. You adapted to me very quickly and pulled off some full screen SPD's, good job brother a well deserved victory to you.
Rob: You did great at the tourny man, and it was your first one too. Hope you keep playing. I suck against Boxer so I'm happy to get all the practice I can get vs him lol.
Andy: I don't know what happened there man, I've never played that good before.  But yes, you were right I did put alot of time into learning the Ryu matchup as it had always been one of my biggest weaknesses. Till next time bro.
Fong: Rock solid play mate. Your boxer is able to switch between his solid defence into calculated offensive risks very efficiently. I'm a long way off beating you in a tourny, but look forward to the day I might.
Hue again: I don't think Sagat was a good pick against me, I am very confident in that match up, and it's now 6-4 to Chun in SSFIV. I was pleased to see you finally pick C.Viper against me in the second game, even though she got beaten I am sure if you worked on her I would struggle against your Viper.
Simonfish: Bro we had a great match, down to the final round and with a Double KO in the final game! Talk about epic. I was a bit gutted I got that close and didn't win, but heck it's you I was playing! You can't really be that mad about losing to Simonfish haha, great match bro look forward to more, and good job on second place.

Chur.

Older post:
Thanks heaps Lenny for organizing, and everyone who was involved with running. Fantastic event and weekend.
Great play by absolutely everybody.. good games to everyone I played.

All good on the MM Hue, just let me know if you ever want one, I'll be keen.

Massive congratulations to Kevin! You really are #1 bro, you deserved it!!!

Big thanks to James and Chrissie for helping record my matches while I was playing! Gutted you didn't make it through to Sunday with us bro, next time it's all yours.

Good to meet you Nick4now and TheFlash! Shot for making the trip guys, hope you enjoyed yourselves. Awesome money match with you Flash, was closer than it seemed too considering you dropped a few supers which would of won rounds.. you played real well tho man. I hope the casino put out for you too  ;D

Players of the day for me in the SSFIV tourny go to Fong and Weazzy.
Fong, your boxer is perfect man, an absolute joy to watch, I can't even come close.
Weazzy, you sure showed everyone! Well done bro.

And of course, a big thanks to Mason for winning both of your money matches which I had side bets on you for!

Shot wellington for coming up and making the third strike tourny what it was, hope you guys enjoyed yourselves.

The buffet on Saturday night was awesome haha, shout outs to the U-Man for making the biggest dent in their food supply!
Props to Skycity Casino for letting me rob them of their $700 on roulette Saturday night too haha.

I look forward to the something epic up your sleeve Lenny ;] It sounds awesome bro, will definitely make it up for them.

SMOOF, BRO, now you can beast with balls out double Ds Q.

Ben, shot for running 3s bro, you kept it real smooth, and despite that small hiccup with the brackets everything was sweet. Sorry for actually playing decent when we played bro haha. Cheers for loving the game so much too, was a pleasure to play you all weekend. Hopefully I can get up more and play, playing you guys who are getting into it and love the game has made me fall in love with 3s bullshit all over again. for lyfeeeeeeeee

HEBBBB, my new top 2 favourite 3s players haha. oh shit gimmicksss. "DONT JUMP IM GOING TO FLASHKICK" "WTF WHY DID YOU JUMP I SAID DONT JUMP" good times.

But more importantly for me, I liked that you guys keep it real and aren't dicks about the game. Frankie bro, you're on another level. 2nd with Alex bro, what a stun beast! Thanks for lunch again, too man, if you find yourself down in Wellington let me know and I'll return the favour!

super was mean, marvel was awesome even though half the time i didn't know who is who and what the hell is going, but a big shout out to birry wong for tryna fill me in on whats happening lol

3s was so sick that it deserved to be mentioned on its own. can't wait to watch the video's of the top four esp simon's mak juggles into stun, kevin's nasty RX like urien (partial charge all day) and frankie's god like alex :o damn simon i was hoping you'd pull off that combo you do with mak, the one where you do her ultra then juggle then ultra again.......you know the one you did on me at yifanz yah bastard >:( lol

shout outs to the welly boys for coming up and to all the new faces too :)

p.s apart from predicting simon to take out marvel i got my other predictions wrong lol i had kevin winning 3rd strike, jacksmash to be our youngest national champ for super and lenny for HDR

Lol yeah I was proud of my performance against Jack up til that point. I play Jack online quite a abit and he usually thrashes me. Last ranbats we played he 2-0'd me so I'm stoked that I took one game from him. And how I got up before it was over, I almost did the same thing in my last game against Simonfish. Lol.

Was happy with that match as well.

Progress: Check.

Cant wait to see the Sunday matches uploaded.

Man, gutted I missed Nattionals this year. Glad it went off though :)

Cool to hear weazzy did so well. Shot bro! I always knew you were a beast. I always told everyone not to sleep on weazzy, when your focused you are a tricky customer. Congrats bro :)

Dunno how well Nick4Now did. But am stoked he did the mission up regardless and repped our scene down south. Good stuff. I really hope to make next year. Maybe team chch? ;)

Cool to hear everyone had such a good time. Did the prizes find you guys ok? Wondering who got what and how much cash.

Looking forward to the vids. Hope there's some behind the scenes style comments and stuff not all just matchvids.

3S sounded sick! Can't wait for more ggpo or 3S online when it comes out so I can get schooled.

Off topic a bit, though I missed nats I'm entering a 96 man ssf4 tournament in holland on Saturday. So at least I get to test drive my rush down Rose in a major this year. With no console I'm going to get schooled :( will try and rep nzism hard though.

Congrats for such an excellent event. Cool to see everyone come together like this. Warm fuzziesEspecially to Lenny, Rorooze, Bill, Ben, Grahame for tackling this mammoth task for the community. And of course Alan without this site we wouldn't be here.

Man Nats was awesome!!

Cheers to everyone who helped organize and setup. Really sorry to you guys for not coming on the Sunday. I was just really not feeling well and I didn't want to disappoint my fan (Birry Wong) by showing up with a half ass attempt El Fuerte.

GG to all who I vs there. I'll try to highlight the match's I remember

SAS guys (Nate and Manclaw keep going. I know you guys haven't had much exp with the game but it was good you guys made a showing. Kinda funny how we got matched and the GIANT GET OFF MY TABLE STICK!)
Hydro (You were not joking when you said "I beast El Fuerte". Just got taught how to play that game... Hunters for LIFE!!)
Blackstar (Just straight hype. I feel like we are suppose to fight till the end of time me and you... REMATCH!!)
Scribble (Awesome Makoto bro. That double uppercut thing made me go into training and try it. So awesome.)
Smoof (Great game. Never played a Sagat so I was pretty much winging it. Where was our SC2 game?)
Mobius (WoW just can't get Blanka down. Need more training against a Blanka as good as yours. GG)

Damn what an awesome event! It was great to meet everyone in person, Flying over from Christchurch was totally worth the experience! I was disappointed that I choked so early in SSF4 but luckily there were other dudes around who I could share my pain with and have a little group crying session ;D Fricken stoked that I got one round against Kevin in 3s  :P

Big shoutouts to:
Scribble: Again thanks for hosting us on Friday bro, big prop for sticking with Mak during the tourney! Also thank you so much for the Xbox 360, if I can get it fixed I'm gonna have to go and grab a copy of SSF4 and a stick  :) I owe you big time!

Skullator: Congratz on making the top 8 dude, I was really backing you! I think it's clear that you are the top Chun player in NZ. You're welcome for helping you learn the Juri matchup  ;D

Lenny: Shot for setting up an awesome event and just being an overall GC! Glad that you actually got to enter SSF4, would've been sad that you put in all this effort to organise something awesome but only to spectate. Thanks man.

Ioane aka KingPiccolo aka cheap ass tick throw looping bastard  ;D: Good to meet you bro, had to play you three times in the tourney. Talk about unlucky for me lol GGs man, I'll get you next time!  ;D

and Weazzy Mother Fucking Goldberg Efff! Shot bro going from not winning a single game last year to taking out Pool B undefeated was fucking awesome! W. Bison is the man!

Was also good to meet Flash, Bill, Smoof, Mason, Rorooze, Karizzma, Rumble, Genterror, my uso Wicked Ways, Toomeke, Paddy, CrazyMobius, Imagneto, U-man Flux, Stu and everyone else! Man keen to come back next year and actually place somewhere this time lol

Also somebody teach me 3s, the finals was so epic it made me want to get into it  :D

I forgot who initially asked me to come to the nationals but I have to thank them for bringing it up because I really enjoyed my time here. As some said it was nice to finally put names with faces and it was good to see the EVO APAC reps again!

Massive shoutouts

smoof - Team AV Premier and being my assistant over the weekend helping me with pick-up; accommodation; and drop off. Just need to introduce me to people next time I was a tournament virgin on the Friday night hahahah. And introducing me to burgers. House of smoof and Cat of smoof is too awesome.

BIRRYWONG - thanks for being so gutsy driving in the rain on the Friday picking me up and carting us around shame we didn't get to play like even one game though hahaha. We still have that one game of Transformers Escalation mode haha. And thanks again for manning the video station.

Orochi - shame we didn't get to play KOF at all and just just missed out on Tekken as well. Hope we can get some games in the future other than cvs2

BIBmeke - Relaxual Sex bro hahaha. Thanks for being the main driver over the weekend and thanks for listening to my old man nostalgic rants while in bed (no homo). Not to mention the advice in sf4 during the Sunday I think that really helped me out. sf4 gimmicks is low tier. 3s gimmicks is top tier hahaha.

I had a pretty awesome weekend/week. Had some good games, met some sweet dudes, learnt heaps of stuff. Cheers Lenny and Ben for running shit, Rory/Skull/Smoof/Ben for letting me use their sticks, Mason for showing me how not to lose my shit under pressure and convincingly beating my ass three times ( ???), and anyone who yelled when I did/should have 720ed.

Special thanks to Griz for putting me up/putting up with me and for running most of the matchups through my 3 day Hawk  ;D

good to see you at Nats Alan, great to have you involve with these events, you should try to make it whenever u have time.

One thing I would like to suggest is that this year's prizes wasn't all that great tbh, I think we really need to figure out something, maybe charging a bit more to boost the prize pot or something? even get some sponsors for us.....but then again sponsors are a pain to deal with sometimes.

I thought the amount of cash was fine considering our scene.  If we want to charge more, then we need to have a pretty premium event IMO.  You may or may not remmeber but I did alot of canvasing late last year and ealrier this year as to what people would or wouldn't pay, and that is how I came up with the entry fee.

The sponsorship stuff is honestly a huge annoyance to me.  I tried to make contact with sponsors several times.  I even approached you and other NZism members that had spoken with sponsors for previous events and even they had no luck so I don't know what to do there.

Having said that I think that the focus should be on the event and the positive feedback from the members, which barring a couple of things is what we have received.  The only way to get the pot bigger is to have more people enter, or to find someone to sponsor events that don't ignore my emails/phonecalls.

Post by: massi4h on August 26, 2010, 11:57:58 am
Yeah I thought prize money was pretty epic for an event as small as that. Kevin got over $200 for winning SSF4. Sure 3rd place for T6 was like $13 but there musta been only like 8 people in the tournament. We all know it would be great if we could get big enough prizes to get the attention of more overseas players, but definitely not atm.

Post by: zos'la on August 26, 2010, 12:05:31 pm
Its goign to be near imposible to get someone to sponsor teh event for near to nothing...
we maybe able to get Giga to sponsor the venue? but knowing the owner.. he is realistic when it comes to figures ahahah.
I agree that sponsors never reply our emails.. or maybe we just went through the wrong channels...

anyways with regards to entry fee, I think what we are doing is pretty damn good and we SHOULD charge more for the entry fee, even just $10 more will change the whole look of teh prize pot, thus will encourage more transtasman competitors or even further than that. Our scene are looking great from what I see and I believe the majority of the players skills have even up over the year, well for SF4 anyway. Also running 5 games is too much.... I think 3 is good enought...
anyways, I really think its a good time to start thinking with regards to further boost this even to another level.

Also I would liek to suggest that we need to get soem hardware for ourselfs, even just 2 setups that we can use for our tourny. Eg we can have like our usual rambats but charging a few dollars more, the money will go towards our hardware as teh session goes we should make enought... these hardware can we stored at Giga for as long as our Oganizers are around we can take them out to use? I think at this stage we should look at Monitors, xbox we can supply from our community.
In saying we should really start to strike a Deal with Giga for our future events, but let me know what you guys think.

the entry fee i thort was reasonably good, will can have a chat with some of the dudes at samsung (i deal with them tho work) no promises cause theyre cheap tight bastards, but keen to no when ranbats start so level my game up haha, but for the size of the communuty i dont think we can expect a huge pot atm, just need someone to win some lotto.

Post by: stereomonkey on August 26, 2010, 01:23:02 pm
Reasonable entry fee + More players = Good Pot
Slightly more expensive entry fee + Less players = Okay Pot

What i'm getting at is that the entry fee at the moment is able to pull in the players that want to get that tournament experience.  The moment you raise the price without a solid benefit to those players is when we start to lose the community and then in effect, gain a smaller pot.
Title: Re: "The Aftermath" The Nats 2010 Post-Tourney Thread!!!

yeh u guys have got a good point, though I still believe we should have 3 games, rather than 5 which split the pot and also very tiring to organize at once...

Hahaha yeah 5 games was frikking nuts.

I think 3 is a good number.  For me this year was like a good farewell to those older games.  Whomever is organising next nats should prolly just stick to 3 recent games like BB:CS, MVC3, and Super IV. Something like that anyway.

Yeah I even had to struggle to get that 20 bux lol. I nearly didn't even make it, was fucking lucky as.

I reckon we should stick to those three games too. Too bad Tekken don't have much players ay. I'm sure heaps of cunts play Tekken. Whenever i say to someone ' I'll own you at SF bro' they always go 'Bro i'll sass you in Tekken'. Must just be hard for them to get together i guess. I think they just stick in there small arcade community ay, don't really converse with any console players and what not.

I honestly don't even care about the money. It's all about the placing imo. If i won that 200 i would've just shouted everyone at the bar , straight up. And i'm a broke nigga (wonder why lol). 3rd place is pretty impossible to get for 90% of the community and it was only $45. But yeah, i don't care about prizes and shit, unless it's some limited addition gold te stick!

Heaps of folks do play tekken
we even sent 2 players over to singapore for an international tournament

However I think the tekken community is rather lazy since events have been organized for them by timezone and they dont seem to play if they have to travel or need to have their own stick

as above.  Also next day I went to Timezone to chat to some of the other regulars.  Some of them had work, or uni.

Also there are others like me who don't play as often, would've of been cool if they all knew about it/could make it.

I think it was t5 days when tekken was as big as ssf4 now.  during my competitive time anyway, i know tekken tag days were even bigger.  mmm... tekken tag

Well, I definitely think it's possible to get tekken pumping hard if people actually wanted it to be. I think NZ has the talent and the community necessary to do it real justice if people actually came together for it.

I haven't seen anyone prove they actually want that though. Everyone seems happy with how things are. Which I find strange.

I think this would be a cool idea. It's a popular game world wide. Games at Nationals looked pretty cool. I was a bit surprised no Blazblue at Nats either.

In regards to sponsors. They pretty much have nothing left to give away that's street fighter related. When it's not timed with a games release they really have next to nothing. Also it's the dry season for games releases in general so I can imagine even promo copies of any new releases are pretty  scant.

For capcom stuff it has to come from capcom Europe, then through capcom's distributors in oz then their leftovers get to nz. They promote the games and any leftovers we get. Anything else has to pretty much be begged for.

It's a shame our contac on the inside couldn't help us out this time around. I hope the leftover stuff for our events found happy homes though :)

Hopefully there's a huge marketing push behind mvc3. :D

On behalf of myself and Jack.

First of all, apologies for the late thank you post.

Where to begin? Basically both myself and especially Jack have put in alot of effort in practising since getting our beats at the last Nats hoping it'll pay off. In most ways it has but i guess we let ourselves down when it mattered the most which is the Nationals. *Stiffens up the upper lips*

Big congratulations to Kevin/Simon for once again showing true form when it counted the most.

Lenny - Too much bro, you run our ranbats everytime as well as plenty of other mini tourneys leading up to the nats and you seem to do with almost no help at all sometimes. I have no idea why you can even be bothered sometimes with some of the shit talk that happens but i know deep down you have true love for this "hobby" of ours and you just soldier on. Too meke brah.

Rory - I guess your still somewhat new to the scene but you've help out so much in our ranbats/tourneys etc, completely unselfish man. Thank you.

Stu - You somehow got your our ass from teh Tron to  help run this years nats and not only that you kept up a smile throughout the whole day. Thank you bro and awesome watching you beast in HDR.

Ben - Thanks for manning the 3S setup the whole day bro and shot for teaching me your in depth boxer knowledge as i dont think i would be able to play the semi stable boxer than i do now without it. Thanks whorey morey :)

Rob - Very very impressed with the boxer you displayed throughout the weekend dude, i kept thinking to myself unlike me, you've learnt how to win by using footsies and normals rather than most rushdown and random HB/OH boxers i see so often including myself to be frankly honest. Practice often  but productively and you'll go along way. Dont be shy to ask ppl what works with your match ups with them cos thats how we all progress and learn. If they brush you off...... Stand up and step them out! WATT! P.S Remember, when you turn pro, dont be a eat arse.

Andy - Our match felt just like when we're in OZ haha, except this time my randomness paid off,... just. GG's bro.

Hue - No offence but im glad i didnt have to face your Viper as i do really believe i would of lost. Hands down.

Allan - Thanks for coming dude, it was good to catch up with ya again and awesome to hear you drop those knowledge bombs regarding HDR. Nice.

Jack -  We got schooled by some fresh asian dudes again can ya believe that! 2 years now! Sad  :'(

Weezy - Brah, your Bison was mean maori mean!!! Im glad you heeded my advice and not come to the tourney krunk off you fucking face,... it paid off eh? Told you man. Oh hey do me a favour, stop sucking on Brodsta's cock you faggot your better than him now! You also owe me $20 for losing to Andy in the MM, so until you either gimme 20 bucks or come next years Nat's, you shall be officially known as "Fong's Bitch" Y'all heard it here first WATTT

Heb - Thanks for coming down bro was good to see you again. Hope you had a lot of fun :)

Thanks EXC355UM for the awesome write up.

Finally shout outs to all the people i missed out and apologies if i didnt introduce myself but there was just so much ppl there and i think everyone was in their own little zone anyway.


No disrespect.
Fong and Jack

Shot Fong bro but Brodsta would probably perfect Daigo yo, real talk cuz. He actually has a professional Boxer and underground kick boxer and pretty boy spanish dude with a claw working for him.

Really nice to meet you Simon, so good to play some 3s with you and I hope I'm back up in Auckland soon to get some more games in.
