Haha No rules, anything goes... I guess Lenny could be on the receiving end of a beat down due to cheap ass loop thows  ;D

I'm also curious as to what kind of sticks they're gonna be using. Man the big pot is pretty tempting I must say.

Post by: CoMa on February 02, 2011, 01:55:45 pm
I was the one who told Nick about this one. I played the last one of these. Throw loops are fine. The sticks are MCA joysticks on original arcade cabinet which will be linked to some plasma screens in the club so people can spectate easier (50+ people trying to look over your shoulder gets awkward).

Last winner was a Chun-Li player who played Blanka player in final. Other two in top4 were Ken and Guile players. Defnitely think theres room for a good Dhalsim/Sagat/Ryu player to do well, if last time was anything to go by, the field will be flooded with Ken players and the odd Guile.

Hi guys Ive just signed up cause I heard some of yous are keen to enter hyper battle feb 16, we had one last year & competition was very close even Ben Lummis repped welli & made it to the quarter finals.
Ive decided to run another one this year due to huge interest from the last battle & also celebrating hypers 20th anniversary.
we have the official stages & yiphans champs entering from the early 90's, even some that lost in the finals are keen to revenge their lost 18 years ago... lol
Alot of us oldskool gamers still jamm hyper cause we own our own arcade machines & have not made the transition to super sf4 lol.
I had the honour last year to play super sf4 3d at the xbox microsoft convention at the grand sky city, was unreal playing with 3d glasses hehehe.
Would love to see some of yous entering the battle as some of these guys are world class, see yous feb 16...

Should do 12v12, NZism vs rest all characters vs all. Should be easy with at least 100 people going.

Haha that would be cool I think I've already thought of the team to represent lol

You'll probably find the majority of guys playing aside from the NZism crew won't use GGPO, having learned exclusively from playing on arcade machines. That being said, there will be a fair few guys who own their own HF machines. In any event, I'm sure there will be both NZism and non-NZism players who will do well.

I was thinking about this last night. Also will they need to reset the game after every match so the next two people will be able to pick new characters?

Yes, this is fine. Using your example, winner stays Honda and you can pick Ryu.

I'm really looking forward to this. I'm not great at HF, but it will be cool to see a lot more people who are good at the game. I'd love to get more of you guys on the site. Would be awesome to get good at HF.

Post by: massi4h on February 04, 2011, 02:12:48 pm
He means that we think they're all pushovers and vice versa basically. My original view was that there would be lots of people who can do fireball traps and anti airs and that was about it, while more of us study videos and watch pros and maybe even look at hitboxes and learn frame data. And alot of the NZism players are also just as old school as them, but actually I do think alot of these non NZism guys know what they're doing and they all play eachother in high level play.

12v12 would be a great battle imo.

That's a bold endorsement, especially in a single elimination format. I give respect where respect is due and if my very close friend Nick4now says the NZism crew can play then, to me, those are people that warrant respect as legitimate contenders.

However, to discount everyone else in the field, purely based on what you know about NZism players, is both ill-advised and somewhat cocky considering you know little to nothing of the skill level of all the other players. For all you know, they could have been sitting at home with the curtains closed and no job, playing HF all day every day since the 90's, studying all match-ups, counters/ranges/hit-boxes/frames/etc, recording and reviewing video and then compiling it into written form as a secret Street Fighter Bible.

This is what i mean when I say i think a lot of NZism guys are sleeping on you guys and vice versa. I think weazzy has unrealistic expectations of how good NZism will be compared to you guys.

I honestly think there will be some really good comp. These guys have been around for years and theyre going to be bringing all that experience to the table. Some of us will do OK, and some of us will get absolutely bodied by these guys. Im really looking forward to it.

And i honestly hope a lot of you boys hook up with us here so we can bust out some more awesome HF events later on.

Don't underestimate these guys. I've been told how good some of these guys are by CoMa and I definitely believe him when he says that they're good. CoMa and I went to Yifans (before I knew about NZism) in 08 and well he smoke my Gief with Ryu many times in a row.... What's worse is that I later found out that fierce punch wasn't even working when we were taking rounds against the cpu.

Sure I've leveled up since then but the chances are CoMa has too. And for him to say that these are guys are better than himself is a sign that some of these old school guys can play. I've also given CoMa a heads up as to which guys to look out for since I feel that we too are being underestimated. Too bad that half of the HF players aren't even going lol

And yer i think they are pretty good now too. I don't even know if NZism is good i just take a guess cos they are like kinda geeky you know. And the geeks always win at games.

Yeah man I used to play with those guys hardout, but I was there in 2001 so we prolly just missed each other hahaha!

Man I hope some of them go, I haven't seen them in years.  All great guys too.  I don't think I can make it in time to play in the tourney cause of work, but I will definitely come to watch the matches.  Shit.  Small ass world.

Haha hardout, you must have played with my mate Aaron (big guy with the big afro), Mafi and the rest of the boys. Saw Fono on the train couple of months ago, said he never plays anymore except for if he goes to buy fish n chips after I told him about the last one of these...but people like him don't take long to get back into it.

Yeah I remember them.  Was Aaron the guy they called Tulley as well?  Or was that a different dude?

Is Fono still an accountant?

Bro this and that Ben Lummis line reminds me of when my mates played scribe at ssf4 and he thinks he's like awesome as at it now haha. My mates are useless as.

Scribe played the ST cab at work when he was recording one day.. it was only a few weeks after we got it and i never ended up having
free time to play him but i watched him play one round.. he seemed good but my idea of good may have drastically changed since then.

Karl Stevens (ex-singer from supergroove) told me him and Che-Fu used to live on HF. He said one fish and chip shop let them both stay the night
in there so they could play until they opened again the next day. LOL. I wanted to play Karl but again too busy recording..

I think he said Che started playing SF4 but it was a while ago so i can't remember..

Not related to HF, but musicians playing fighting games, Dallas the vocalist from Fat Freddy's Drop plays a bit of 3rd Strike, or use too at least, has some sick Ibuki shit. Can't remember who else he used, if anyone.

Not sure if it's the same Aaron but he took a break from uni sometime around then. Fono is still working as an accountant. But yeah, he is Top3 people I've ever played, it took me forever to get a win against his Zangief lol He could SPD from anywhere.

edit: I just clicked who you were talking about...big Tali, yeah he and Aaaron are tow different guys =)

Yeah he taught me how to play gief, and I mained him for ages after that.  Were you there when the asian guy named Lou used to play as well?  Used Honda and got really angry when people threw him.

Hey bro I think NZ players usually jump on around 9-10. With your tourney just around the corner you can expect NZ players to be there training  :) Also nice Blanka, since you were using a pad it's hard to tell how much it capped your skill. For Corey he sucks balls on a pad hahaha

I'll be on in about 30-45min Ben if you're keen! HF or HSF2? Up to you bro  :D

wish i could figure out this ggpo stuff a bit to confusing for me changing ports roms ect wtf would love to play online nzism guys might be right about easily beating the old skool guys cause most of us havent even picked up a joystick in ten years a bit of fun but i guess the scene was a lot diffrent then arcade only and no vids and very little hitbox and frame data info but some of us did put the time and effort to learn the game properly i think the best thing about the old days is you could always get a money match down yifans with the asians and they were bloody usless and the worse thing was if you threw the wrong person to much they would try to beat you up lol so the risk reward scenario was greater i still have fun playing ssf4 online every now and again anint that good but i can beat some people with my dan and watch them rage.

The basics are at

but any further discussion of this topic should be in the PC Online forum - that's where all the GGPO talk is.

Hope you get it all sorted, it's a brilliant resource.

It's a shame alot of the good players can't come but hopefully there will be future events that everyone can attend. Don't stress if you're not a 'pro' HF player, I'm pretty mediocre, I just want to gauge where I am in relation to the better players....or be a cinderella story, fluke some wins and make a fairytale run to the finals bahaha

Filter: Welly
Doors: Welly
Barnstorm: Welly
Redtie: Christchurch
Me: Christchurch

Thats 11 names right there which is nearly our whole HF scene haha Ben is the only one who's lost interest because of mvc3 the sad guy lol I hope Sol hasn't either  :D

Guess it depends on where your emphasis is...one could play MvC3 at home before and after the tournament if they were so inclined . Coming along and playing is a good way to a) make new friends b) see where you're at in relation to other players c) establish networks/grow player base for future events...my 2c lol

This is why I'm forgoing the MAHVEL. And im basically the guy here thats the MOST hype for the game out of all of us. "OMG MARVEL 3 IS OUT" is a statement i can understand, but not one that I think is an excuse.

Post by: massi4h on February 16, 2011, 10:06:24 pm
OK there were 36 people. First round Ben and Dave played and Ben won. Bill lost with his awesome Balrog. Sol lost to a Blanka, he got like a perfect or near perfect in the first round, then in the second game he was 1 round up and lost it. Me and Simon both won our first games. Second round Ben won, I won, Simon lost to ThomasFoster.
Now we're top 8. I lost to Stafford (some guy who I clearly remember his face from 10+ years ago at yifans) and Ben won his game. I had to go, but Rory told me Ben lost in top 4.

Oh well it went alright I guess. I'm quite sad about the setup, the buttons were fine the stick was alright but it was side by side shoulder to shoulder and I couldn't get enough room to hold the stick properly. So many tiger knees instead of meaty tiger shots, etc. But na I got pretty used to it and the OG players were comfortable.

Had a good time though thanks DJ Reminisce/Blade for the comp. See you all next year if it happens again. $720 is nothing to laugh at.

Sounds like you guys had a mean time. Shot BLADE for organising this, Let us know when the next one is asap so that Redtie and I can come and join in the fun  ;D

Yeah lost to the guys Blanka. To be fair he was playing much better than me. I kept throwing stupid fireballs and he'd jump over and punish. Or I'd go for a meaty fireball on his wakeup and then get a jab and then do a fireball after and he'd jump and punish.

That was really cool.  Wish I could have entered.

Staffid was really good.  I thought that he was the best there and should have won it tbh.  Top 4 were all really good though.

Stafford is top notch, it was unfortunate he and David  had to play off for the last spot in the top4, tbh they both deserved to be there. Can't take anything away from David, he pretty much had the toughest run out of anyone considering he got paired against the winner of the last tourny in the first round then had to go through Thomas F and Stafford among others.

oh well it was great seeing some of the old guys again i will say one thing although there were some very good players everyone i knew was insanely rusty dropin combos mis timing throws hell i even jumped a couple of times trying to sonic boom dam shoulder to shoulder dont know how we did it back in the day the cabinets where even smaller than that as well the level wasnt where i use to be but everyone had a good time thanks jacob

i did feel for one of the nzism guys that made it to 4th i think thomas decided to pretty much kill him with one move only frd hk with chun (the neck breaker) over and over and over again sad but bloody funny to watch  a guy get hit buy the same thing like 10 times in a row ..

The tournament would have taken way to long if it was double elim, given the amount of people there. Single elim was the only way to do it really.

What, that you're not even interested in a tournament for a game that you think is probably one of, if not, the best fighting game ever? With more entrants than we had at Christmas Damager? Struggling to see your point TBH.

Single elimination just means you gotta be sharp, I know HF has some random shit (dizzys) but with best of 3 you should be fine. The fact it was single elimination was well known before the tournament and with a prize of $760 meant the $20 risk you take is pretty low if you are a good player.
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: LN on February 18, 2011, 08:54:45 am
The fact it was single elim was well known before the tournament, yes, and it was also well known before the tournament that I wasn't interested.

Single elim works in Japan because their tournaments have NO entry fees and also NO prizes. Replacing that with high entry fee and only #1 getting cash is in my opinion, ridiculous.  And only getting any payoff for getting first in single elim is NOT a low risk. You have to be fucking joking.

It's not like I'm saying no-one should have entered, just that I had 0 interest due to the format. Also it being on a weekday and me having to drive for 2 hrs at considerable expense didn't help.
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: Rorooze on February 18, 2011, 09:06:38 am
Well there is no need to come into this thread and rain on everyones parade if you're not interested in participating.

Assuming you are actually serious about the prize money and good at the game, roughly even in skill to everyone else at the tournament, then you could say your odds of winning is approximately 3.125%. If your paying $20 dollars to enter a $760 prize pot then the percentage of the pot you are paying is 2.63%, so yeah, statistically speaking it's a worthwhile risk.

If you know people at the tournament can beast you then it's probably not worth entering :p
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: LN on February 18, 2011, 09:10:42 am
...

So you don't think I should agree with people when they say that they would prefer double elimination? Especially if it was the main reason I didn't want to go in the first place? The whole reason of posting something like that is to say if the format was different I WOULD have been interested in participating. I'm staggered that you as a tournament 'admin' don't think feedback like that is useful.
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: Rorooze on February 18, 2011, 09:27:37 am
No, I think it is fine that you agree with other people that the tournament should be double elimination; but surely as someone who has run a tournament before you would understand that when you only have finite resources you can only do so much before the resources you have are exhausted.
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: LN on February 18, 2011, 09:38:36 am
As a player I don't particularly care how they do it. If they want a more attractive tournament structure then they can do some thinking, now that they know some people would like dbl elim.

As someone who has run tournaments I have a pretty good idea that with the resources they gained/had available they COULD have had some options that may have made it possible, had they desired. It's not my prerogative to tell them how to run shit, only to say that I would prefer other things. And if they act upon some of these requests, if they want ideas then they can ask some of us folk who DO have a bit of experience running tourneys. Most likely in allcaps.
Title: Re: 2011 Hyper Fighting Tourney
Post by: CoMa on February 18, 2011, 10:54:18 am
IMHO, single elimination was the most practical format in this instance. Given the six months between now and the proposed Nationals, I am hopeful that a double elimination format can be implemented for it. It is reasonable to expect that this will require a greater time commitment from both officials and players . However, it will be better for players as opposed to  'one & done'.

I am quite sure that with the right planning and promotion, this will be a very successful and enjoyable event for all involved. This is especially applicable for all the people who for one reason or another weren't able to compete this time around.

this will be bigger than the last comp, more players more money.

Let us know when you plan on running it blade.  Like I said at th end of that night, we can run it on XBOX360 and split the video output between lagless monitors and the big screens.  We all have experience running double elim brackets, and can bring software to make it easy.

Can rustle together dome Old Skool MCA sticks for all the OG's pretty easy and rock that shit hard.

sounds cool bro, wer do yous normally have yr tournaments????

we have one on March 12 but it's not hyper fighting because our last HF tournament didn't have much interest. We also jam SSF4 and MVC3 every second friday and on occasion some of the older games come out.

Normally we have it at Giga internet cafe up on wellesley street.  But I don't think that that particular venue would work for the crowd that was there on the night.  I thought the venue was actually really good for the game.  Felt like I was in a dingy arcade watching a bunch of the boys going hard.

When we spoke about our NZism Fighting Game Nationals, that is an entirely different event.  We haven't actually pinned down what games we will be having at that event, and I guess Hyper Fighting could definitely be one of them.  We had tried a Hyper Fighting Tournament at one of our previous tournaments, but the turnout wasn't very good.  When we saw how you managed to pull 30 something odd people into that place for Hyper Fighting, we definitely think there could be some value in it for Nationals.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you plan on doing anything like this in the future let us know.  We can help with equipment etc to help you run it smoothly, and in turn by helping you out, we get our site out to more people and grow our community.
