Shiki was badass tier in Battle Colloseum. Ain't no forgetting that. Solid AA, pressure and her divekick angles with those air slashes pressured like a boss. Her and Lee Pai Long was so fun to run together.

One of the most interesting characters in NGBC, too bad the best Samurai Shodown character never showed up in a proper SS game. :(

I've wondered what the deal is w/ youtube that makes them so rare- their streams are amazing because of the on-demand rewind. I know SCG is looking into them for MTG coverage.

Hey guys we're doing a live thread on NCR and HypeSpotting over on /r/StreetFighter.

If you missed the team tournament you can catch clips of the best parts and go over the results in the thread :)

/r/StreetFighter thread here: http://redd.it/31c087

Here are the last two clips:

lots more in the thread. we're doing this as a test but more importantly as a service for the FGC as a whole, please let me know if this kind of content isn't welcome, cheers!

Love the highlight video clips. Is there a way to sort updates so the oldest post is at top and you can keep scrolling down? I guess that defeats the purpose of a live thread but I can rarely catch these tournaments live and this way it makes the thread easier to read afterwards

It's because twitch streamer's audience is on twitch, the switch wouldn't be smooth. For smaller personal use like streaming for friends or so, youtube is so much better right now.

Yeah. Twitch is going to have to make some missteps for people to drop it in favor of youtube right now.

Didn't Spooky move to another site for a while because of payout-related reasons, then moved back to Twitch for the same reasons but worse?

that was owned.tv, the same guys who are running hitbox

they basically didn't pay out anyone they owed and peaced out, leaving some folks under several thousand dollars or something like that

hitbox lost a lot of support after it was revealed that they were run by the same guys

Ah, the lack of monetization, basically?
That's a huge part of it for sure, youtube did implement a donation feature recently, but it's US only so far I think.

I wouldn't say it's that bad already, youtube already have a bigger overall videogames audience than Twitch, if they manage to introduce them to live streaming properly, we'd have a real streaming services battle.

My hoped for immediate results (not the most likely)

Gamerbee beats Wong
Kazunoko beats Du
Strider beats Diego
Smug beats Poongko

Snake eliminates Ricky
Pnoy fucks up Momochi
Pugera survives Infiltration
Marq beats Bonchan, bc this is Bushinryu

That reminds me that that Bonchan v. BJUNCHAINED match was hot fire! ZONK!

Look as much as I'd like to drop $90 for MKX+DLC, it's 90 effin' Americanos for the PS4 ver.
I'm better off waiting for the retail ver. to get here and I knock its price down by trading in some games

In case anyone was wondering, MADkof and Woo were taken out by Sange Tencho from Japan. He was then taken out by Misterio.

The Chinese re-stream I was watching had over 97K viewers during the GF.

he already won Evo and IIRC last year's IGT. It's about time a South American shined on one of KoF's biggest stages. Misterio's team is too legit!

Very much agreed.

Gotta say, it felt pretty damn nice to see a team like Misterio's school all the tier whores.

That anti Kim anti-air HD block string with Yuri was insane.
 
no, I was stating a simple fact. I'm not saying you don't have a right to root for Xiaohai, but some people wouldn't mind someone else taking the big one.

People love their underdog narratives and OMG UPSETS huh.

I don't even care about Xiaohai in general, but whoever was commentating started pushing that angle and it just annoyed me.

Xiaohai was probably the easy favorite and for good reason. I mean, whose victory over him wouldn't be considered an upset? In a tournament full of killers, no less? Misterio has had a solid reputation for being an excellent player in long sets and he had a chance to further demonstrate his skill here in a single-elim stacked tournament setting. That, and the fact that his team is fun to watch, was my personal reason for rooting for Misterio. He's been one of my favorite players for a while now and he didn't need to be the perceived underdog for me to care about him.

there was a lot of Yuri stuff he did that was just mindblowing. And just the fundamentals displayed all around. I need to watch this again.
