The West Michigan GRAPSF Ranbat season kicked off with a bang this weekend at ULX. It took a while, due to obligations other than pugilism by digital proxy, but by the end of the night we had a very successful first run.
The results for the evening are as follows:
5th) Tru Talon
8th) Octopus On Fire
Which leaves the Ranbat points at:
Tru Talon (4)
Octopus On Fire (1)
The next Ranbat tourney will be the week after next: ULX will be hosting a Call of Duty tournament this upcoming Saturday, which means we’ll be playing somewhere else (to be announced soon).
Highlights from this last Saturday include Slappy upping his Zangief game enough to take the semi-final win from yours truly, in a one sided match that left my Blanka wondering just what the Hell happened. Also pondered was the size of Gief’s testicles, which poor Blanka could feel crushed against his face every ten seconds or so. It’s hardly conclusive evidence, but if Blanka’s face is to be believed, a certain Russian wrestler has been on steroids for quite some time. Singe blew all our minds by parrying Remy’s multiple projectile super “Light of Justice” in third strike, not once, but twice in regular play. His Ken did terrible things to everyone, losing only to my Remy (despite the ridiculous parry crap) and Urien (Go Die, indeed). Making this even more impressive is the fact that Singe had just switched from pad warrior to using a stick THAT NIGHT.
The final match of the evening was between Slappy and Smurftac0s, who picked Sakura to play against Slappy’s Godless Red Devil. Smurf pulled it off too, defeating Slappy in a close and fun match that had the place jumping. Smurf is a beast, and remains the guy to beat at GRAPSF.com.
We had some technical difficulties with Haypultone’s HAVA recording device, so there’s no footage of this weeks’ play. We should have it figured out by our next meeting, so look forward to HD quality footage of things going forward.
