Still blows my mind that I knew 100% that silent shinobi is a ky player, yet when I sat down to play him in GG I was 100% convinced that a black man going by silent shinobi was going to play Chipp, and was actually very surprised when he didn't...

Finally recovered long enough to give a shoutout post. If I forget anyone I'm incredibly sorry, but there's really just waaaaay too many people to shoutout. First and foremost I want to give major props to Stickbug and Big E. Without these two NEC would not be as hype as it's always been.


Ama and Circ - Hanging with you guys the entire weekend from the car ride to the event and the car ride home and everything in between was amazing.

Jourdal - I wanted to play 2P Tales of Xillia with you, but DS was a big scrub and didn't bring his PS3 so we couldn't body his file together.

Troll Badguy - You make GG casuals 10x more gdlk than what they already are. We finally brought back MONDAYS in room 308 that weekend.

AxisTheBitch - #STFUAxis

Silent Shinobi - You already know the deal. It was great hanging out with you again and those 50 wings were gdlk.

Brice - Your fine taste in hentai has inspired me to follow in your footsteps...except futa...cause fuck that.

Tone, Dark Talon, NC Pain, SenXXi, Shynsin and Ninja_Boi_Dougie aka the realest niggas in room 720 - You guys are fucking godlike and I'm aiming for my runback at Dokopan Kingdom D:<

DSmoove - Even if you're not a real nigga you took the trollings everyone gave you like a nigga and I respect that...still a bitch though.

SKD - Shoutouts to pointing out how HOLLYWOOD I really am and causing me to underestimate how HOLLYWOOD I am throughout the entire weekend

Kaeru - Stay fucking godlike. I wish we could've played GG against each other again.

Pochb - Shoutouts to you putting Dora off the sticks at the bar in GG and good shit in the tournament. I had to get my salty runback from Summer Jam.

Pfhor - Everyone has their off days and I hope you'll be able to put your performance behind you.

XAQshinor - Randomly coming out of the grave after so many years T_T

A3Religion and Alzerath - You guys are too good. I too aim to be as old and gdlk as you guys in GG one day.

Fubarduck - Nice to finally meet you and play you in games

Aginor - Thanks for the ass beatings in P4U and then reminiscing about the old SRM days. .

Severin, Sanoshi and Guyman - Thanks to making our room hella hilarious and hella handsome

Leonil Requim - Randomly coming to my room out of fucking nowhere. Still suck at GG though :(

PBJ_Mixxa - It was great to you meet you again after 2 1/2 years

Doren2K - Fuck Doren

I'm really sorry if I forgot you, but let it be known you were probably godlike if you made it out to NEC and because Dacidbro. Shameless plug! Twitter

Shoutouts to stomach flu or w/e the fuck was causing me to throw up every 10 minutes on Saturday then dropping out of GG/AH3/MB to pass out for 14 hours (RIP). 0-10 matchup get fucked me.

But seriously, thank you Souji, Kirisame, and Dora coming out (Sponsored by stickbug). It was fun to meet you guys and try to help however I could. Singing America Fuck Yeah! To Dora whenever I could and convincing him to BBCT moneymatch me in a Bang mirror was fun. Souji's Teddie's was so careful and scary. Kirisame just RTSD'd everyone and fucked us up! So strong.

James Xie with those moba coins, and grats on top 100. Also you owe me drinks!

Alan and Eric, you made all of this possible, thank you!

SKD, another tournament of us avoiding playing each other!

Lich, good games in tournament. Wish I could have faced you without almost dying beforehand. Yay for rusty people and lol Dora NTRing Eduardo.

LPT you got your revenge on me D:, I'll get you next time.


Pain and DT, if I didn't get bodied by sickness, I would have FUCKED YOU BOTH UP IN AH3!

Everyone from out of the area, thanks for coming! You guys made this event what it is.

Fubar, you got everyone addicted to Zoo Keeper FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

Circ, nice to finally meet you. Too bad I only briefly talked to you at the bar.


Kurushii, nice to finally put a face to you instead of your twitter avatar :V...

Jourdal, (insert over 9000 joke)

There were a lot of people there, I didn't get to know everyone's names, but I do know most of you (like Brandino, Shinobi, Axis, Alz, Brice, and ehrik)

Black Guys - Yo there were so many there. If you said hi to me and introduced yourself, i'm sorry i still can't tell ;;; We only have like 3 black guys in WC Anime scene so it was super hard to tell. ;;; Except Huey is the tallest of them all.

Well what can I say,

I've enjoyed meeting new people like BatosaiJ, Shinsyn, Her_Omen, Dsmoove12, etc.

Played casuals with new people. Better then Netplay.

Losing against Souji for beating the holy hell out of me in BB. Best Arakune I ever fought.

Enjoying watching JP players beating us American players and Canadian Players on the big screen.

I enjoyed the hell out of this event. Best time in my life. I'll be back next year.

Shoutouts to TGS for being a spectator buddy.

Looks like no results thread, so shoutouts here!

First of all, the biggest shoutout in the world to the men that make it happen! Big E, Hubbs, and St1ckbug. Everyone knows about :st1ckbug:, but Big E and Hubbs have always treated us as well as they can, and continue to run great events!

Special shoutouts also to do those that helped us out with running the event such as Xie, for the quals, organization, and helping the Japanese, and Kurushii, 1500 miles up north to run a stream!

The Japanese got my shoutout on twitter already. S.oujiK.irisameD.ora...coincidence?

To anyone who volunteered to run pools! It's work man. Special shoutout to myself and Biscuits for running 5 on Saturday.

To those that were there to play their matches and easily accessible, for making everyone's life easier. Anti-shoutouts to Marlinpie basically in this regard.

Shoutouts to the Copa! Once there was space, oh man. Shoutouts to Tokyotea, official drink of NTR. Shoutouts to all the NTR.

Shoutouts to the guy I beat in Billiards at the bar! All Venom player tournament please!

To the roomies!

Amadeous for so much the driving, the ggs, and booking the room. I was worried when I couldn't stay with Alan and NY...well you never know sometimes. You had my back though

Circ, for designated driving, being chill as can be, and of course, new smileys.

Severin, for being entertaining as hell Friday night. And somehow, on the way back Saturday for Yakitori Boy, ENDS UP IN NJ. Well I hope they didnt pass Rape Valley then.

Sanoshi, for being hype as fuck with 0 or 4 drinks and the ggs! Bridget army is strong!

Dio, who is never sleeping in the same bed as me ever again. Fucker took up 70% in the middle of the bed and he ain't fat. Because of this, he did not top 8 in GG! But I heard there was some good shit talk, so I'll forgive him!

Moar shoutouts? Yes please!

How about some NY?

Biscuits, with the Blazgreen commentary of the century, and more bias commentary in general. Rides are good too!

Xaq, who stopped working for a weekend. For someone who hasnt been playing GG, he did pretty well...but May. Good to catch up! And god damn that phone is huge!

Zidane, for more bias commentary and a pretty KoF performance. And for bodying Dora, just because.

A3, for t8ing in GG, then throwing away CF tokens way too fast.

Mynus, for geting random'd out :(. But being awesome :D.

Liston for the ride to Yakitori Boy!

Braver, coming through from school to replace Mahouko as commander in chief of the Bridget army, and Jojos!

Travel buddy SKD, for the truth!

Other travel buddies, Alz (get bodied), Jourdal for being on stream, DigiOps for his stick and picking up GG, Kendrick and Kevin for VSav General, Apollo and Tenryo watching streams on the way back, and that guy from LI that said he knew me but I have no idea who he is.

Cab Smasher, showing up outta no where and old man general!

Nerdjosh for discussion and being the desiginated FIND KYOHEI

Bootyclappa for running A2!

To Chris G, because as he says, no one plays GG in NY. Afterall, it's not at Big 2!

The rest of the best, and to hell with the rest!

New England, including, but not limited to, Mindgam3, Bluenine (ITS YOUR DL NAME, DEAL WITH IT), that erractic Faust who bodied me, Tales, Noisetank, and rest, great seeing you all!

To Texas! Rob0t coming back from the dead and his awesome pendant (your girl is so awesome for that!), Saltydefense, my Venom brother in arms! You make 6p, 6hs look so easy, motivated me to practice that first thing when I got my new stick and PS3!

To Jersey! Sad Ril and Sogos didn't make it, but Jersey got in there! Especially to LK, who ran brackets, t8'd in both games, and dont discredit it, but put in the work against Souji in tournament!

To Florida! Senkei took GG, ggs to you man! DC for breaking restroom etiquette but acknowledging and apologzing. Maybe I'll catch ya at APEX, if not WB! Kurushii, you're the fucking man!

WEST COAST! Dacid, for still not topping on the EC, and taking all the shit we give him with a smile. Apologyman, because "I Have to play BB" GODLY. Great meeting my successor, SPOOKY BOOGIE aka Huey in person! Shtkn for being right next to me as I mention he's here, and explaining Blade's role on DL. Spirit Juice, for lifting his no fun rule for NEC!

MD! Rei for the SRW love, getting PTS during the tournament, and the ride to the Copa. Matt Coma for the t8! Good shit!

Fish sista Kendra (are you reading this even?) out from CO, land of legal Blazgreen, to do Vsav, and fellow fish brudda GBursine. All I lost to into VSav all weekend was Fish mirror...WTF?

PA! Damian and Rogue Yoshi...you guys didnt do much it seems from my PoV, hope to see you guys playing more! Superscience, as god awful as his spelling yet as awesome as his Combovid, go watch it, then kill him. Special shoutouts to Saphri for some hilarious stories. Hope netplay works out well.

Shoutouts to me getting in one picture, a pic Kendra took of me doing a Fish Bubble IRL.

Shoutouts to I NEED ONEGAI ROKU CHAN FOR MELTY *crowd erupts*

Shoutouts to AP and AH for coming through and playing.

Shoutouts to ANIME KOMBAT!

Good shit everyone! Will see you all somewhere again!

EDIT OMFG I can't believe I forgot Canada! Shoutouts to them all for always coming out, bringing 1,000 setups, being chill as hell. Shoutouts to me and Kaeru aka the solution to world peace theory fighting CP, and his girl for putting up with our manly conversation!

I'm honestly not sure what to say...

I was thinking about talking about past NEC's and how this year was out of this world. I was thinking about writing something about Eric and how godlike of a TO he is... but you know what? There's something that goes into making a tournament that people always seem to forget. It's not the TO's. It's not the prizes. It's not the rivalries, money matches, twitter drama, streams, or fake hype:

It's the players.

Frequently I tout NEC as the major to go to. Why? I'm not sure... maybe because I feel confident that Eric and I can run a good event? I've been to many bad ones, so I know what to try and avoid doing. I accept the fact that it's impossible to please everyone and that some people will leave disappointed. But you know what? Through all of my blunders as a TO, people still seem to come back every year. More and more of you guys decide to put NEC on your radar and make the trip out. Whether you're from WC, EC, PNW, Texas, Canada, New England, or Midwest, NEC has been an option and only an option. You could decide not to go, but each year more and more people decide to go. I can't thank you guys enough for coming out and making this event what it is.

Often we forget that players make the event. I could have the most godlike stream setup imaginable. Eric could put $5000 of his own money down as a pot bonus. Madcatz could give a lifetime supply of sticks for first place, but all of that doesn't matter if no one shows up.

I was hoping that NEC this year would be the first time that I ever got to see all of my FGC friends all in one place and I wasn't disappointed. Far too often are we split between events, regions and game choice.

Walking down the stairs at the Copa was the start to it all. I wasn't sure how many people were going to show up. It was kind of a far trek from the venue and I know a lot of people can't afford to splurge during a tournament weekend. It's things like this that make a start to a great weekend: a bunch of nerds in the downstairs of a bar all doing what they love. It was so packed that it was next to impossible to get from one end of the room to the other. Chants of "USA" and "Japanese" and yells of "No Future" filled that tiny room and it reminded me of why I started doing this in the first place: it's fun as hell.

I know I seemed irritated Saturday and Sunday, but that's because I truly care about running a hype event. You guys decided to come so it's up to Eric and I to make sure that you have the most enjoyable experience while at the same time staying within bounds of reality. When I have to make a decision that will obviously have a split of interest I can get irritated. Combine that with losing your car keys while having to take care of a few foreigners on little sleep and I can turn into a grumpy old man.

I was truly humbled that so many people decided to make it out this year. That's all I can really say. To thank each person individually would be a waste of time and it would take away from what you all accomplished as a group: you showed up.

So one again, thank you all for coming out and making NEC what it is: a godlike tournament.

See you next year.
