Hey trannies,

One word: Awesome

Not everyone was there, but I got the chance to have a long session 3 hrs or so with Hidan and his Quan. I got more flawlessed then I got in a year playing online and you lot. :)
I think I just beat him maybe 5 out of 35-40 matches and those were extremely hard, and luck was on my side sometimes.
The things I learned from those plus the training sessions are NOT in any forum or TYM link, these guys are on a different level altogether. Forget about what you see on TYM because even the US pros don't explain everything. There are tips and techniques that never crossed my mind, ranging from MU to execution to general gameplay.

He played Cage without relying on f3s, go figure. The guy has his own philosophy on mk fighting. Totally different experience.

I am very glad I got to do AAs regularly, but he would always find a way to break a defense so it didn't really matter because I was getting floored every match.

Biggest problem I came about was defending against cross overs, and I gotta work on that.

I am having a session this afternoon as well, with a bigger group. Qwarkie will be there too (I hope) . Try to tune in to the live stream guys, we were on stream yesterday :)

More info to follow after day2.

I strongly urge all of you to seriously and doggedly search for offline scene, players, tourneys. Online is a toned down and easy version of the game with close to no high level gameplay exposure. Reaction times are key, and online it's non existent not to mention frame data shortfalls.

Cheers everyone, wish us luck today :)

Ok, this is what I don't understand...
Before I give the lowdown from my Day2 at the dojo and the good news that everything was recorded and will possibly be the attractive YouTube material on the BoP channel, none of you dear clan members even bothered to post a single comment on this thread.
Funny how silly threads get the most involvement and threads like Greek Dojo and all the goodies BoP getting from there gets jackshit.

I watched quite literally the whole time you were there. Suomi watched for a long time too.

I even put the stream on the front page of the forum.

We as in you? (:

Looks like you're still adjusting to offline, which is obviously understandable. But you held your own ;D

Have you learned anything from playing offline?

We as in us, BoP contingent :)

Yea, the reaction time is much less so you gotta be quick.
Knowing when to interrupt is key as well, some moves tho negative on block still leaves you with space to cover in order to make offense while in face you would eat damage. So emphasis is on spacing.
I can't stress it enough Shadow, try and go to the PND. Keep online minimum even if you go there like once a week.

The guys there are very helpful, all I had to do was ask no matter how silly the question was.

Plus, I'll make a full breakdown of info and tips after I'm done with my holidays. Got my final session tonight with Hidan. So there is Day3 to come :)
