For a lark I decided to see if my name had been posted here before, and surprisingly it had. One of the posts talks about my visit to NYC and playing with some of the locals. Here is my take. Adam was the Akira player right? I remember him well, he was very good. At the time we played, my thought was that all he needed was some more competition and he'd be up there in the top VF2 eschlon. He just didn't have the benefit of exposure to different styles of play. All that aside, his Akira was very precise and tough to beat. Honestly, I have no idea who won more matches that night. Adam probably did, if people that were keeping track payed attention. I remember playing all different characters to try and show the people there some of the cool things in VF that you wouldn't know unless you were part of the usenet groups. All I remember was having fun, except for when Hyun got his wallet lifted. That sucked.
