The meetings of the RU players in real life

Hi.

I wanted to tell you the story of my last week-end...

In Marseille (France) i participated this week in a competition on Do Donpachi and like i needed to learn techniques and patterns i watched the N°1's game of JUL even if i played this game a few years ago.

In this competition we had only 2 tries !! So there was no place for luck.

On saturday, i was qualified for the final reaching 10 Millions and i didn't find a real contestant. I won the free ticket to come back on sunday and i knew i will win a retro console :-)

On sunday, when i arrived, the organisators told me to not watch at the screen of the last player which finished his game to not be afraid. When i saw he made 35 Millions, i knew i had a real contestant and my chance will surely be poor.

Indeed, when i saw him writing JUL as initials i was wondering if he was the same person of the RU game i watched last night !

We began to discuss and YES he was the same person !!

What a wonderful news to see that i will play against one of the best occidental players of this game which has a 72 Millions score on RU.

He made his first score reaching 32 Millions so the pressure was high !

My first shot was at 11 Millions and my second at 12 Millions so i finally finished 2nd on the 4th qualified but i was so proud to play in these conditions against JUL that i will remember this moment forever.

Now, i know that JUL is on shmups.com and i know who he his ! An excellent player, fan of Do Donpachi !

Cheers :-)

It would be cool if WE could start doing this like once a year. Everyone from the site get together and have a real big tourney with drinks and food, It would be the REAL RU FAMILY!
