    TEA come on man. you know why i couldnt win. I had 1 kill left and was 6 above the 2nd place and i got kicked for connection errors 1 time and similar situations happened plenty of times….plus we are talking Fighting games, not 3rd person shooters dude. Dont be scared, i wont be mean and get perfects on you, ill let you hit me once.
