    WHO:
    Well, I like to know who achieved what. And a bit of boasting adds spice when it comes to fighting games. Let's hear more praise for all top players achievements then go into the technical analysis afterwards.

    WHAT:
    I like to know what they achieved, like 93 wins in a row is interesting. That was VF4 game play REALITY, not theory.

    WHERE:
    It's nice to know where. Just happened to be at Casino London UK.

    WHEN:
    Date and time obviously has some relevance.

    WHY:
    A little bit of VF4 philosophy is nice adds a bit of depth. Let's hear it from those respected players.

    HOW:
    Well, anybody who can get 93 wins in a row probably knows a thing or two about the game wouldn't you think? It might be worth trying to persuade him to share some of his knowledge although it is unlikely he will give away all his strategies to his opponents at this early stage, specially with a tournament coming up. In fact if anybody manages more than even 50 wins in a row in a full blown national VF4 tournament they got to be international class.


    To those very depressed and bitter people over there. Don't worry the game will be with you shortly.
    We feel for you. We want you to get the game so that we can share techniques and ideas with you then beat you badly. It's just the way it goes.

    Let's share.

    WHO?
    The Prince.

    WHICH?
    Stupid question! There is only one Prince, Prince Hatim.

    WHAT?
    well....he got a winning streak of over 90 wins on VF4. Loads of different people there with different styles. Button bashers, veterans, talented players, commited players etc....Must mention though, that Ryan was not there.

    WHERE?
    Casino, Goodge Street, London.

    WHEN?
    29th September 2001AD (post world war 2, pre world war 3 - maybe)

    WHY?
    Because I love VF. It's my favourite game ever. Derrick Lynch is my Don King. He pulled me into the VF world, so I owe it to him. I have been playing VF since it first came out.

    Because I'm no newbie who just joined the scene when VF3tb came out. I am a veteran and get no end of trash talk from people who say winning a VF2 tournament means nothing, that it's 2 generations ago, that I'm getting old and we need young blood. WHATEVER! I'm 26 years old, and even when I'm 30, married with children, I'll still kick your damn asses.

    Because I get sheer pleasure from racking up those wins. People say they play for fun and it's not about getting wins. So what the hell did people invent games for, and make the objective to win. The objective of any game as far as I know, is to win. There are other objectives too, but the primary one is to win. I don't get fun from losing, I don't know anyone who does. So when someone counts their wins and is happy , don't give him/her a hard time about it. They met their primary objective x times over.

    Nobody enjoys losing but we have to lose sometimes. I might go in next time and lose, that's life, but if I get another winning streak, you'll be the first to know :p

    HOW?
    I used Lau. I'm not known for using Lau, I'm normally associated with Kage, but at the moment I don't really like the feel of him. I tried various characters and I liked the feel of Lau. He has a few new moves, and is very strong against people who can't dodge well. In VF3 that was case, but it was so much easier to dodge. It is so much g#harder to dodge successfully in VF4 so it gives Lau a good chance to execute a well thought out rythm of attacks.

    It's good to learn how people react to certain attacks. When they work you out.....well....just change it. Constant variation is the key.

    Outsmart your opponent.

    Lau's strengths? Elbow, palm. Lunging spinning elbow (f+p+k) major counter hit, knife hand, p, p, sweep. Up knife , p, p, p, k. Strongest throw, d/f, d/f +p+g. Mix them up of course though. But don't mix up throws for no reason though. If someone doesn't reverse your strongest throw, keep doing it. Once they finally start reversing it, then use another throw.

    I gave mercy rounds and I almost died, so I'm not sure I'll be doing that again in a hurry. Ryan is right, if you give someone a mercy round and they end up beating you, they couldn't give care less most of the time.

    Concentration, try to focus on the game, there will be times when there is so much noise in the background you're on 49 wins and people are doing their utmost to put you iff getting that half century. I almost punched someone, after asking them so many times to keep quiet.

    Most of all enjoy it and stay calm all the time. If you don't enjoy something you'll never do as well in it, as when you're actually anjoying it.

    Be confident that you can win.

    WILL?
    Yeah probably.

    WOULD?
    Yes, I'll give you more info about Lau next time I post.

    That's all folks.
