London Meet IV... DONE!

Ohhh well, the meet was absolutely great. The best shmups related thing in Europe (and probably in the west) by far. The playing environment was something incredible, the Casino Arcade is probably the best place in the west to put your pcb in and practice every day with a lot of other good players. Anyway, here's a little list of the guys there for the meet. I'm quite sure someone's missing, so please tell my if you find any mistake:

+ Herr Shatten (Germany)

I had two decent ULTRA runs (default fire, of course) during the meet, and a lot of crap. But that's ok, I'm quite happy of what I was able to show (a run ended during stage 5, for example, another one was ok scorewise, nothing near my 200 mil record though). Have a lot of people behind you while you play is exciting. It can be tricky, but it's definitely great. In the end the only thing I have to say is that I'd like to visit this city and its playing environment again as soon as possible! Thank you all guys (in particular to our usual DEL), see ya soon!
