Try being exceptional at a game, then losing to someone undeserving. In a game like super smash bros and street fighter 3rd strike which are coincidentally the only 2 fighting games I play, it is beyond frustrating.

I don't think anything tops daigo vs justin wong. I can only parry that special 1/10 times at best when i know it's coming. The speed of that particular special requires you to parry beforehand which is ridiculous intuitive gameplay on his part.

I sadly cannot find a good video of this but

There was a Match on League of Legends in which a team known as Counter Logic Gaming won a match with 4 people vs 5 people due to lots of Disconnects from one of their main team members. It was just all around impressive and no one thought they could pull it off.

Disagree. SSBB is soooooo slow, can't be epic when it's like 5 years between each move

Yup, it's not just slow it's floaty. Never got into Brawl -- beat the story mode (got all characters etc) played a bit of local mp and decided it's not for me.

I agree it is floaty (You get used to it after you play the game for awhile), but the game is good overall. Not amazing, but solid. The only bad aspect is tripping, Nintendo's horrible attempt at wifi within the game, and how Ice Climbers (Having infinites on every character) and Metaknight (The God) are pretty unbalanced. I am hoping Smash 4 will be the best of the series.

This is all opinion based but I honestly dislike fighters like MVC , SF and Tekken. I think they are extremely boring and something I would never play in my life again or watch streams of (I would rate these games 4-5/10)... I guess I'm just not a fan of bar health and side scrolling. In brawl you don't have a set death, and I guess that's what intrigues me more.

I can't hear any music worth a damn in this video lmfao.


Also I 100% agree about SSBB. I can't stand it. It is indeed slow and floaty. I dislike the stages and I hate how much *crap* is present all the time on-screen. SSBM, however, is pleasantly fast, has plenty of great levels, feels relatively balanced, etc.

Clearly I cannot speak for Daigo, but I suspect that the pre-timing/pre-intuition was not as risky a move as it seemed. Before the super attack, Daigo is directly mirroring/pacing back and forth against Justin for a couple seconds. In other words, he treats every other step *as if* Justin would launch into a special attack, so when it came, the parry would be ready. He probably made this decision around 2:39 in the video.

So it's not like he suddenly went, "Ok, NOW he'll launch the super" -- I think he was making that call continuously until it actually happened during those few couple of seconds. Since he had no life left, it was a safe bet that Justin would launch the super because only one hit needs to land for the match to end. In turn, Daigo chose to go for the full parry.

IMO it's amazing that he not only made that judgment call so elegantly, but he actually pulled off the timing of the parry itself with respect to each hit. It really does show how much strategy goes into these things at the top level despite the quickened nature of fighting games. Of course it's entirely possible that to expert players, landing a full parry is not all that hard (much like pulling off an 11-footer AAA is easy for us), but it's an amazing comeback either way.

Well yeah, of course he was, but that doesn't make it any less difficult to predict, because he still had to predict that it was coming. I play this game literally every day I'm trying to go pr0 with my ken purely out of addiction. I'm a BEAST at parrying and I parry people online all the time just to shove it in their face when something else could've been done to just end the match outright. All wong needed to do was pull of any form of chip damage. Even though daigo knew all it would take is one houyoku-sen, it doesn't make preparing for the spacing any less difficult. He still had to predict the moment she would pull it off because it literally takes a pre-emptive forward movement unlike any other special in the game. Basically what I'm saying is you can move forward and backward mimicing your opponents sway all you want, but when it comes to that particular special, you have to know when your opponent thinks it's best to use it, and that's what he did with such a long pause in such a tense situation with so many people yelling around him. Truly it is incredible.

To see exactly what I'm saying, download street fighter 3rd strike online edition and take expert parry trials. You will notice that all the specials are parryable semi-easily, besides that one. Even while knowing it's coming and the time it's going to come I have a hard time hitting the first strike, and I am a beast at parrying.

Anyone got a vid of the $80K Mistake? Basically, during a high-stakes ITG tournament, a dude was quadding the final round song and would have won had he remembered the mines. He didn't, other guy did, mines went off, cost him a huge purse. (The incident was apparently named after the difference in prize money between first and second place. I don't remember the exact differential.)

Got 3, all from Marvel

Marlinpie perfecting Fchamp his first time back in Vanilla (before he did it again in Ultimate)


Marlinpie changing it up with his Doom swag combos, can he do it in the middle of the screen?


And finally, MOST hype of it all, THIS

(Thing is I saw what his gameplan was in the last round, it was actually trying to PUSHBLOCK Pheonix into the trap, but he was SO CLOSE, luckily Fchamp went in it for him :V)

Marvel was made for hype. I love it.
