    This coming Tuesday, MAY 19TH, 2015, AT 7PM CST, ON SKULLGIRLS ENCORE FOR PC/STEAM

    GET READY, AND GET HYPE

    And come on down for the most BRUTAL, the downright BLOODIEST, the BADDEST KNUCKLEDUSTING MARATHON to happen in PROBABLY MONTHS

    ZEPHYREL'S FIRST KUMITE @ http://www.twitch.tv/zephyreles
    BEST OF 5 (FT3) AGAINST EVERYONE
    The fine text (open)
    (...That I can get for this Kumite, which will hopefully be alot, but given it's literally two days to get as many people for this Kumite, I don't expect much. It'll be Best of 7 (FT4) or Best of 9 (FT5) [most likely] if I don't feel I have enough players.

    I am also looking for co-commentators, and looking to talk to players in post-match mumble of what we think and feel about each other? Anybody be down, let me know here or on Twitter or Steam or whichever, but preferrably here!

    Lastly, I do reserve the right to talk with the opponent and call the match off if we deem it not very well playable under lag.


    With Combo Breaker right around the corner, I want to test my strength and mettle against all the Skullgirls players I can possibly gather and muster for this Kumite. To gather the widest spectrum in players, styles, tactics that I wish to taste and experience and think about before CB. And to hopefully have enough players to prepare me, physically and mentally, for the wall I will need to climb in pools at my first major.

    Instead of scrounging for matches on the typical evening, I extend this invitation to everyone possible to test me, and I them!
    I want to get the wildest variety of matches I can get, instead of what's usually been fighting against the same folks, mostly out from SGIRC, being that everyone's busy and such all with other folks, all that jazz. I understand that people got their own pools of people to play against and that they like to practice. I had planned on doing this much sooner, had I not had controller issues (didn't have one at the time), but those issues are fixed as of yesterday, at Maxout! Whose thread is here http://skullgirls.com/forums/index....t-alamo-drafthouse-kansas-city-missouri.6757/ where I will later, late tonight, post results, and talk to people about play/with match analysis. I got 3rd, at least, with @Dhoppler taking loser's finals and @Fuzzy_Snugs winning. Again.

    So, there it is! You're all invited! Are you down to test my grit this Tuesday evening!?

    Co-Commentators:
    Midiman(!??)
    Dapurplesharpie(!???)

    CONFIRMED INCOMING:
    LuxadeSwag (Won 3-0)
    Fumako
    Shooon (Wins 3-1 with a pretty nice Peacock Band, Brass H assist)
    Shamanlord (Wins 3-2)
    Lawnba (Wins 3-0)

    Why would you ping the one commentator you don't want to have, rather than 15 people you can think of as options

    If I had to pick co-commentators that actually had PC Skullgirls, it'd be, @dekillsage (B&), @cloudKing211 , @mcpeanuts , @Kai (And he's a HELLA BUSY dad, so super unlikely), @Midiman maaaaybe @Elky_Dori, and I think I burned the bridge between me and @POS Industries (he has me blocked on Twitter) so oh wellll, not like it matters too much to me there. And I would kinda want to have @dapurplesharpie on there, but that's like mixing two chemicals together, you have no idea what's going to happen, but it'll probably explode and there'll be loads of shit talking and I don't want that. I would like thoughtful co-commentary and questions, with shittalk to a minimum except when someone really doing somethin' sliiiick.
    Also RIP in peace no bootcamp Skullgirls on @keninblack's Mac the dream is dead.

    So I'm literally tossing it in the air. Flush it go wild if you want in on commentary you might have a spot. And there's always player vs player post-match commentary.

    @Fumako As long as it's playable net, poverty or not, then yes! Haven't played you before.
    @Fosh Good luck with the final exam! And will do. Haven't played you in ages.
    @winnie Awesome. Never played against you, and glad that you're making it to CB. :>

    Ha, I wish this was a final exam. I've still got another month of class because of the quarter system.

    Kumites are pretty much a long string of sets in a row with one person facing a lot of people. So a kumite could be a set of 10 FT5's or 20 FT3's etc. run by one person.

    Sure. You can go first. I think it's a first time I'll be fighting you, too, if not at least it's been a long time. Get it over with though, hey, this is supposed to be a learning experience for either or the both of us, if it's a hassle

    Hey yo @dapurplesharpie... @Midiman says he'd be down, can I get you and him on the mic? You might not be the most accurate on commentary, but you are the most enthusiastic and lively and actually fairly hype. Also @POS Industries and @mcpeanuts, care to get in on commentary too?

    And are you still gonna join in for a set McPeanuts, or something come up?

    Don't. I started out wanting to have commentary that covered play and had insight but
    This is the Skullgirls community, where almost everyone is salty and shitposting every day
    Every commentator just about likes to yell and go nuts and do stupid shit on top of actually commentating play
    And I am an idiot for wanting something I can't possibly get
    Plus you're actually fun

    Sharpie, I apologize for what I said, cause even if it was meant as a lighthearted rib, I can see hurt feelings, and that's not what I meant at all. That came off as a burn and really I should get (spit)roasted for it.

    So, I'm serious. Can you rock this mic with @Midiman?

    Cause for all my attempts as of late, I'm apparently pretty terrible at being entertaining, hahahaha. And don't even play that people don't want you on the mic garb, people pack your streams something fierce because they enjoy you, myself included.

    Due to some complications getting people around, and all gathered up, we're pushing this to 7:30. My apologies.
    @LuxadeSwag I don't appear to have you on Steam and I can't seem to find you, either. Can you add me on Steam?

    Welp, didn't exactly go the greatest, that's for sure. Technical difficulties the streeeeaaaam Especially regards to matches. Lag City got turned into Duff City for me, Lobbies came from hell and kept screwing with our commentators and me and the players, and Skype kept on dunking us all outta the Skype call. Eventually I just kinda got impromptu entrants in chat, too, at the end, ha.
    A big thanks to Sharpie, Midiman, and surprise commentator and substitute, Wingzero, for commentating and keepin' on keepin' on and being with me 'til the brutal, bloody and nasty end.

    Shoutouts to the all the folks that stopped by.

    Impromptu LuxadeSwag (Won 3-0)
    Shooon (Wins 3-1)
    Shamanlord/Pickles (Wins 3-2)
    Lawnba (Wins 3-0)
    DawnHikari (Dawn111) (3-0)

    and Impromptu Midiman!

    I need to get the scores for this thing. I'll be uploading this video overnight so that you may behold all the glorious lagplay going and that it wasn't just the stream stuttering.
    And notes for the NEXT KUMITE and doing things like this:
    For the love of EVERYTHING HOLY I need someone else to host the stream during any and every Kumite I ever do in the future. Never using Skype again, using Mumble. Skype kept dunking calls, and dunking/switching my mic input for whatever reason that I needed to reset the damn thing every now and then, and especially after every dunk.

    I wish for a lot of things. That I was in a really good fighting mood (I wasn't), that I was focused (I wasn't), and the netplay was decent to fight with with all that going on and I just

    Time for a bit of trainining diary slipping in oh boy, don't read ahead if you don't want to get depressed
    Show Spoiler

    Today wasn't a good day. Not even that representative of how I play, and throughout all the lag I just kinda gained a "fluff this and fluff that I don't give a fluff fluff everything" attitude throughout it but I made a committment and I remained talking decently I suppose

    My mind is really heavy on what I'm going to do now and going to be doing then and later
    i'm stresssssed

    it'll be all better when I see everyone
    I hope

    I made it this far, it's too late to turn back now
    Because this is it
    The end of the line
    With my future, especially near future, so unsure atm, I can no longer be sure that I can really play and support Skullgirls and my local scene in KC, even, for that matter
    And I want to be there, but, for right now, this is indeed the end of the line
    Make this first major, this experience, count
    Don't fluff this up
    You are going to make it there to Chicago, by the grit of your teeth and tenacity sure, but you're going to make it
    And after that, you know what to do
