    i should have phrased it as "i don't feel like louffy outplayed bonchan, and in that way do not think the better player won in this instance"

    It's almost like watching a vortex character back in 2012. Yeah, Infiltration put in a shitload of work and played like a monster, but there were SO MANY matches where the other dude made the right guesses, did the right options, then goes on to lose anyway. Obviously Rose isn't nearly as good as Akuma in 2012, and Rose isn't a vortex character. But watching that gave me the exact same feeling. How could Bonchan have realistically played that matchup better? He played such smart Street Fighter and wasn't rewarded for it at all. Luffy played great, don't get me wrong. He certainly went through a tough road. But goddamn if the finals didn't leave a shitty taste and feeling.

    So he's not Asian, not French, and he didn't really play Rose the right way because they buffed her so it doesn't count. So Evo was won by an empty chair with a PS1 controller sitting in it, apparently.

    Are you really going to strawman this argument by attacking some dude not even from the forums?

    To be fair, at one point Luffy ducked a high Tiger Shot from over half screen and still had time to dash in and fierceXXdrill before it recovered.

    That kind of made me cringe a little bit.

    I think it's kind of silly to say Luffy didn't "deserve" that win when he came through losers bracket against characters that are significantly better than Sagat (including dismantling Fei Long twice). It's not Luffy's fault Bonchan plays a shit tier character.

    Luffy is a golden god who I have seen win plenty of European majors with Rose before she got changed to be a character I don't enjoy watching, so I definitely think he deserved to win Evo. In fact, I think even discussing deserving or not when it comes to winning is weird because if you win you deserved to win because you won, so I agree with you on that. I simply wanted to vent some demons about how stupid and unsatisfying it felt to watch it happen.

    Luffy is the champ! No doubt!

    Is Rose the best right now? Maybe.

    Did someone who has been playing Rose since Vanilla SF4, one of the most bunk ass characters in the history of SF4, finally get some recognition? Yes.

    It comes down to feeling like good Street Fighter fundamentals weren't rewarded at all. And again, this happens all the time with bad characters and/or bad matchups, in pretty much any edition of SF. I know that. Just look at how helpless grapplers are in certain matchups. But that doesn't make it not suck to see, especially for such a traditionally solid character like Sagat.

    I really want to see a looping gif of those first 15 seconds or so of the very first round, with Sagat and Rose just bouncing fireballs back and forth without any other movement. I was dying.

    i feel like the things i clarified my statement to mean still basically equate to me feeling unsatisfied that he won and in that fashion

    louffy isn't bad by any means and i've been freaking out about him forever

    i specifically remember talking about the boner inducing excitement i felt last year in the ballroom watching xian vs luffy, 2 of my favorite players, in top 32

    people aren't used to a strong rose

    but he won 6-0 and he came out on top of a 2000 man tournament that many "sure things" didn't make it through

    he deserved to win the tournament

    but he did not earn that set imo

    Yeah. This is how I feel.

    I've never been the person to say someone doesn't deserve to win.

    But man...those finals were only behind Infiltration and Fuudo's Evo wins in how nasty they were.

    The moment of the tournament for me was still JWong taking Marvel, and his slow motion drill claw roll on the stage.

    Second moment was anyone, regardless of who it was, beating FChamp because seriously, fuck that punk. I don't hate many human beings, I don't even like the word hate...but man he's close.

    i don't think you are describing what you saw accurately.. rose's forward dash is 20 frames, cr.mp has 4 frame start up. high tiger has 31 frames of recovery. the fireball would have had to travel less than 8 frames on screen, which would indicate it was close enough that rose wouldn't have needed to dash in anyway.

    People need to chill about being unsatisfactory with the win.

    Bad matchup exists in fighting game. Rose happens to be way better than Sagat in this iteration.

    Louffy still did amazing.

    That is all.

    As much as people, apparently, disliked the street fighter finals.

    They were still infinitely better than the top 4 in smash.

    Because holy shit were those smash games boring.

    Duly noted, we will have to play sometime! Though right now is awkward for me, half my gaming stuff is basically in transit as in two weeks I move from Japan to LA after living here in Japan for two years, so half of my videogame stuff is in transit because shipping stuff takes fooooorever so I shipped it like a month ago, and they only let me bring so much stuff on the plane :(

    I disagree. Chris G has his moments, but I've never seen a cowardly punk like FChamp, who will talk the most shit when someone isn't around to respond to him.

    That said, I'm willing to acknowledge that Chris G has done some things I don't know about that raise his Dick Bag Level.

    Yeah. Not every win is going to be Justin Wong pulling off a Miracle with garbage characters against top tier bullshit. Just be happy it happened in one of the games this weekend.

    You guys do understand that FChamp and ChrisG are practically saints acceptable human beings compared to Marn.
