Four South Carolina players made the trip all the way out to Columbus, OH for Seasons Beatings 4. Matt (U-Volt), Dwaine (Award Tour), Keyon (Keyon), and Justin (SonGohanX) have now returned home and from what I’ve been told so far, the experience has been epic. None of our players made it out of pools (each pool was a 32 player tournament where the winners advanced to the Semi/Finals tournament) in Street Fighter 4 but that isn’t a bad thing because the competition was top-notch including many pr0-class players.
BlazBlue is a game that South Carolina is pretty strong in, however, and Keyon is one of our top players. Keyon placed 9th out of 85 players, apparently barely losing the match that would have put him in top 8 by some sort of “fluke”. Justin also did pretty well, taking 33rd out of 85. Considering the level of competition, those results are something we can be proud of.
Aside from the tournament, they got to go to a real arcade! No, really! They do exist! They spent some of their down-time at the arcade playing Tekken 6, making people like myself who eagerly await it’s console release very jealous.
Matt was kind enough to take some pics from the event and publish them via Twitter. For those who didn’t follow his Twitter adventures, here are some of the pictures.
