How to Beat Ishi...

Postby number6 » Mon Apr 01, 2013 2:57 am

Apparently this forum is still listing "how to beat Ishi".
Some may remember his Hero-clix-fu.

I recall his always turning dials to face himself, and then I'd turn them to face me, and vice-versa.

Of all competitive players, he was the most gracious in winning and losing.

Ishi-fu.

Ishi was awesome! I remember the first tournament I went to him quickly destroying me with Nova Blast Nirrod and then taking the time understand the team I'd builds weaknesses and improve my play after.

One of the best trips I had to Lacey Was with Ishii, and his pal with a glowing brain helmet as the main peice of his neato/weirdo supervillain outfit...

Patricia told me this Ishi fellow is one of the best players she's ever faced. Then she said he retired from HeroClix so he could dedicate more time to MMA.

So from 3-D board combat onto 3-D floor combat?

I have a donation bin with hundreds of carded figures for him to choose from.

Does anybody know Ishi? Would he come out of retirement to school a new generation of players?

I just realized that autocorrect made it look like I don't speak English. Lol.

I contacted him outta the blue over a year past his "retirement".
I didn't get anything sexy like choosing MMA over HC.
From what I got he had 2 kids, a wife, a job (as an animator = fun) and thus priorities took him away from gaming.
Although MMA makes for more of a cool legend :)

I dug him as he played to his opponent.
In static scenarios he wouldn't let anyone win, but he'd give you enough ground to progress and teach you along the way. As Cole Burns describes.
He also never played for the prize.
