    Had some fun on a 30 game rank streak with a Steve Fox player on my friend list...... we had a real good tag punish that was just sick and i got a headbutt team super once or twice. Trolling after suplex is fun too... just sit there on charged grab and play mind games.

    A user by the name of SouthSideNoobs on YouTube has started charting his progress with a Juri and Zangief team.
    He already has 38 videos and is steadily building up BP so it might be one to watch.

    Haven't watched too many yet so the ones above aren't the "highlights".

  • ViddVidd Joined: Posts: 524
    Ha ha, I didn't even notice! I was pleased to see a Zangief show Hugo who's boss. :D

    Damn, there's a whole lot of Zangief in this Box Arena tournament.

    Tune out the commentators unless you want to hear about how bad/"gay"/"retarded" SFxT is.

    I noted down some times as I watched it. May have skipped a few accidentally.

    Viscant: Bison and Zangief
    1:17:00 - Ryu and Guile
    1:41:00 - Rufus and Rolento

    Mr. Certified: Rolento and Zangief
    1:55:00 - Vega Rolento
    2:45:00 - Bob and Hugo

    Viscant versus Mr. Certified

    Bonesaw versus Mr. Certified
    Notes: Super goes through knife to catch Rolento.
    Hugo grabbed out of Super.

    Bonesaw versus Viscant

    Asuka and Marduk versus Zangief and Law

    Some really nice gameplay here in terms of Zangief play.

    In fact, here's another couple of Best1inlynn's matches:

  • ViddVidd Joined: Posts: 524
    Oh boy, some tournament play.

    Skip to 4:20
    A loss but some decent gameplay.

    Skip to 2:00

    Here's a video I made breaking down some solo zangief combos.

  • ViddVidd Joined: Posts: 524
    That is one great video, Rotondo. Really good. I'll have to practice these.
    I wasn't aware he was capable of that sort of damage from his own combos!

    Edit: If there's a consolidated strategy thread at some point, that video should be in it. It's a lot easier to learn combos when seeing them executed.

    Spoilers: Gieft loses overall but there's still some nice tag combos between Sagat and Zangief

    Anyway, here's some more of his matches. I haven't watched these ones yet.

    This match is awesome.

    DHS 2on2(Only teams :/) I played with my nerfed teammate. "Rufus" after not beeing tagged in the first game. We switched teamorder.
    Look at 17min, where we change order. Games starts at 15m I think this demonstrates how strong Zangief is in this game. The two opponents are also vgood.

    We got Third, behind Infiltration and laugh, and Ryan Hart and Taaha

    A previous match of mine against a Hugo/Zangief team. Made me want to sing "SPD Emergency!"

    and here's a video of me getting destroyed by a Vega/Zangief team. Ouch! T_T

    and another heartbreaking loss against Zangief and Raven. :eek:

    There's a lack of 2013 matches here.

    Gief is top tier in Norway :P We were both slightly drunk, though.

    Then again, playing videogames drunk is the equivalent of using performance enhancing drugs during a marathon in Norway.

    I agree, this thread needs more (quality, *cough*) videos. Would love to see what all the other '13 Giefs are doing.
