Just over a year ago, I reached the milestone of #1 ranked Rose player in Canada on Xbox Live. While this was met with no fanfare beyond any created by me, it’s still an accomplishment I hold near and dear. As someone who can still vividly remember losing 20+ straight matches online when I first started playing Street Fighter IV, it’s a testament to how far I can go in a game if I put in the time and effort to get better.
Though I haven’t played the game with much vigor (or much at all) in 2012, I just crossed another milestone.
As of Monday, January 20th, 2012, I became the #1 ranked Rose player in Canada on PSN. Though I haven’t been playing the game all that seriously of late, I have been playing it a bit more for a Splitkick guide I’ve been working on. Once I realized I was in striking distance, I decided to go for #1 in Canada in earnest.
This puts me at the top on both Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, which is crazy to me. After I finish writing the guide, I’ll probably take another break from the game, but it’s good to know that I’ve still got it.
