    It's 3 am, I'm waiting for my washing machine to stop makes alot of I can't sleep..I'm I'll chip in again...( even though I haven't been able to find out any thing abt Napolean)

    I cannot tell u much abt's just that he's not from the tokyo district...

    I think many of the clips we've DLed on the WWW features Tokyo district players.

    But 2 months ago...Arcadia had a 'TINY' section in their mag dedicated to the tournament...

    Tetsujins such as Kyasao n 'special match commentator' bunbun maru( no, he's not the guy that kept screaming ' READY...GOOOOO in the clips) were asked to give their views on the tournament..

    both had very very very high praises for baigau lau....

    Bun Bun mentioned that full credit MUST be given to Baigau Lau for coming 3rd in the tournament... esp since baigau's from an area where VF players are quite limited..compared to tokyo. Kyasao felt that the best match during the tournament was Segaru vs Baigau ...where Segaru was almost defeated...n yet managed to send Baigau Lau to the losers bracket.

    not alot were mentioned abt Napolean. ( from memory..nothing was mentioned abt him)

    Obviously I'm still I'll type some more.

    For some odd reason..I kinda feel that some people have taken the view that Napolean is a Jacky player....(elbow, low p, backdash beatknuckle etc etc)

    If only footage of him winning Chibita was released. It'll blow many of u here away. It's not everyday u see someone repeatedly TE chibita's throw..not to mention seeing chibita making mistakes..causing himself to lose the match.

    the way I see it, Napolean's a fucking damn excellent player.

    Just using a very much hatred style (Playing Jacky to his fullest strength)

    I hate my washing machine /versus/images/icons/mad.gif

    yeah, his style is really ugly-looking (d+P... d+P~d+P) but i don't think his skills can be denied. some of the tricks napolean did in the final vs segaru were really cool, such as the f,f+K from max range to bait a throw attempt and respond with MC f+K. his dodge success rate was very high and his opponents also had little success in escaping his throws (even though he abused d/f+P+G), from what i remember.

    i'm assuming you own a video copy of the tournament, so is there any way you can capture and upload the chibita vs napolean match, then? please... /versus/images/icons/smile.gif
