Alright, I stayed home and trained two days ago, that’s all. Um, yesterday, I participated in a tournament called Ultimate Gamer, it was my first and from my experience I was pretty calm, I walked to my first match with a huge smile on my face lol. What I didn’t know until after the match was the guy that I was facing has a solid Sakura game from what I’ve been told about.
K, when I faced him, he was fuckin’ shaking after I bodied him in the first match, the last two matches he got lucky lol. I was supposed to backdash away from his shoryuken when I was low on health in the last match, but yeah, it didn’t come out. During the match there were people behind me watching, I knew they were there, but at the same time, I didn’t notice them watching me. And I was told after words they were asking about me, and my sensei/teacher/mentor/ Jimmy AKA JFierce told them that I was his student and that I’m the next Chi-Rithy. I still find it pretty flattering LOL! Once I reach Chi-Rithy’s level, I will exceed him.
After all that I went into my next match, I was playing a Dudley player. I DO NOT know this matchup, but I guess I did alright against him, his combos were on point and he never really dropped his links. And I lost, I was feelin’ a bit salty after that, but I brushed it off easily lol, at this point I was eliminated from the tournament. After that match I went outside for some fresh air, and this guy who ALSO plays Cammy came out MAD SALTY! Yo, this guy fuckin’ smashed the back of his head against the wall saying he “I want to bleed!” “I want to die” and he was just bashing himself both mentally and physically.
Luckily, I’m a nice guy and I talked to him for a while and I saw his issues. He had a huge lack in confidence, he said he had been a loser all his life, and that’s all he’ll ever be. I was able to relate to him due to the fact that I went through a really bad stage in my life. ANYWAYS back to the story, I told him to stop doubting himself so much, and to never give up if he is passionate about Street Fighter. I told him, that I get bodied at least 100 times a day but I still keep getting back up, WHICH IS TRUE BY THE WAY! And that in your Street Fighter career you’ll have times where you feel like giving up completely, but sometimes you gotta think to yourself “ I’ve gone so far in Street Fighter, do I REALLY want to give up now?”
Fast forward a half hour later, me and him were facing off and he beat me lol. But he’s got over a year of experience, man, his combos were on POINT! I noticed during our match he was rocking back and forth in his chair like he was on edge or something which bugged the hell outta me, seeing that this was a CASUAL match. After my loss, I faced up against an old rival lol. He used to body me constantly last month or something like that. But TODAY oh boy, that was a different story, I beat him 4 times lol, the 5th match he beat me and we were trash talking each other for fun lol. At one point he said ”I’m downloading you!” and after I beat him in one round I said “Well, it looks like your torrent is on hold!”
After that, we had an after party type thing after A&C World closed. I hung out with the big group of people that now recognize me as the guy who plays Cammy or Urban Ninja as some people call me. We were all talking about the big event that just went on and each of our experiences from our perspectives, some of us made it to top 8, some of us didn’t. I talked with this guy who is also my rival, who plays a damn good Ibuki, now he has both my cell number and psn so we can face off or train in Street Fighter 4 sometime. I guess we could exchange info on characters and stuff like that as well. He’s a cool guy! After all that we headed home. And the story ends there, the last thing that I could say was significant was the fact that I did a 540 kick outside while waiting for a bus, and as I was landing my shoe came off and my foot hit the concrete HARD. The bottom of my foot feels swollen er somethin’.
Alright, later DAZE fans!
