Langenfeld 9 tournament

28 12 2008

This time it’s really hard to describe what happend.

So lets start in cronological order:

Game 1: Jan K 3-1
Jan was really nervous, and his leg did not stand still. He had a good 1st halve and scored a 1-0. In half two I fought back and scored 3 goals. Year, a hard game, a real derby and I won, that was great. So I knew that I will be at least the best hessian player today 🙂

Game 2: Oliver St 1-1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What a sensation, I managed to get no goal in the first half. Playing lockout whas really successfull. But then. I scored the 1-0 and until 20 seconds before the end I was still in the lead, when Oliver finally scored the 1-1 and the game was over immediatly. But I still can’t realise, that I managed a 1-1 against the german champ, and 7th of the last WC. Maybe my biggest success in a game ever.

Game 3: Wolfgang H 6-0
Wolle just got a 0-23 against Oliver, the new record in germany, so I promised to him, that this would be a more relaxing game, and it was I think.

Game 4: Klaus Dieter M. 8-0
I allways score a lot of goals against Klaus Dieter, so again this time.

Game 5: Dirk B. 2-0
Dirk is allways a hard to read opponement for me, so I scored two goals in half one, and that was enough

Game 6: Volker B. 1-3
I managed to score a 1-0 playing lock out again, but Volker returned with his fu…. kick off variation 🙂 and in half two I made a absolute wrong mistake, so he was 2-1 in the lead and finally scored the 3-1. Volker was better this time, but it was a better game of mine than last time.

Game 7: Guido H. 2-0
My jostick did not move to the right anymore, so I had to use my second one, and I can’t play with a competition anymore, so I was happy to score at least 2 goals 2 minutes before the end.

Game 8: Freddy B. 2-5
Jostick three was better, but also Freddy. I managed to score a 1-2 and a 2-3 but then I had not the luck I needed, and Freddies high balls are a class better than my kick off.

In the end another suprise was the 1-1 between Oliver and Freddy. Freddy copied my lock out tactic with success. So in the end Volker won the tournament. Even that he lost 1-9 against Oliver. So for the first time Oliver did not win a tournament this year.

That’s good for german kick off, because it shows, that all of us getting better, and that’s important if you have a look at our results at international tournaments.

Final words
Normally the best player wins, this was Oliver no doubt about it, but the winner is the one with the most points, and that was Volker, so concratulation Volker, and many thanks for your effords organising the tournament.

You are a real sportsman, and your new record (23-0) is outstanding

Great that you are back, I will try to beat you next year 🙂

Also great that you are back, hope to see you at the next tournament

See you at the next Training

Klaus Dieter:
Hope my tipp to play 5-3-2 will help you

Guido and Wolfgang:
You are really funny and friendly persons, hope that you will be at the next tournaments. Winning is not everything, and Kick Off makes much more fun with you two.

My dear Joystick:
Thanks my dear joystick, that you helped me to all the success this year. But today you was nasty! Not working against Freddy is not funny! Especialls because back at home everything is finde again.


German Kick Off 2 Rankings December

Der Heber Dezember 2008

This mounth Volker B. use the abscense of Oliver for a glorious victory at the Longfield 8 tournament.

Once again he managed to get a huge group of players together. Frank H. was present the first time, and he showed great talent. A player we will have to put an eye on in the future. Guido H participated another time as well as Klaus-Dieter M. After organizing 3 European retro gaming championships during the day, Thorsten B. was not in the best condition, but he did better than exspected.

The tournament and the fact that for the first time some results felt out of the table lead to some interesting changes in the German ranking.

  • Volker B. finally pass by Sascha W. and reached place 2. We will see how long it takes until Frank F. will start fight for this place.
  • Frank H. fires up to place 27 and we will see what will happen next.
  • Due to the lost points of some players, Jan K. left the 20+ places by reaching place 19.
  • Klaus Dieter M. won 5 places and reached place 31

German Alltime Rankings December 2008

My first time that I reached Level 1-2 in Turrican

6 12 2008

I know Turrican for years. Since years I also own an original of it. But I never got into the game.
Now because Turrican is played in the actual STOT round, I finally have a motivation to dig into it.

And so after years, I managed to finish level 1-1 and see the next one. Also saw the first end boss.
Once again, it was worth to spend the time for the STOT.

Thanks to dbug for the falcon patch.

First Kick Off Rhein/Main Training

Today we managed to do the first Kick Off Training after the German Champs in October.

Frank, Jan and I were playing for some 6 hours. It was a great fun. I managed to beat Frank in the first 2 games. Later he won all other games, but I was satisfied with my 15 goals against Frank. Jan scored altoghether 9 goals but lost all games, but he enjoyed the taining too. Frank beame better from game to game and in the end he scores 2-3 times a 10-x. We look forward for the next training, set to the 24th of Jannuar next Year.
