The Birth of True Skullgirls Combat: Fugazi

On an undetermined night at Evo2012, a group of Skullgirls player stumbled upon a new form of fighting. Eschewing non-essential parts of the game such at "grabs", "hit-confirms", and "air combos", they have distilled the game into its most basic and brutal form: punching people in the face. Enter Fugazi!

Fugazi is played by both characters creating a two person team of Double and Cerebella. The Cerebella assist is set as forward + s.HP (Titan Knuckle) and Double's assist as s.HP (Fugazi Knuckle). Match time should be set to infinite since a pure game like Fugazi must not allow such petty things to interfere.

After the ceremonial shaking of hands and announcement that this is indeed Fugazi, select a stage and prepare yourself for in Fugazi, only the two mentioned moves are allowed to be used. Use of any other move that hits results in great shame and a free Fugazi by the opponent. Accidental supers (hit or not) result in the offender being Fugazied three times. Assists are allowed and encouraged to be used (should you actually know how to use an assist...). Raw tag-ins would result in moves other than Fugazi to be used and are banned from usage. However, alpha counters would result in the use of Fugazi and are considered Kosher and legal.

During the proceedings of Fugazi, it is encouraged by everyone (or elected representatives) to make random baby sounds and yell Fugazi at appropriate moments. Though not necessary, Fugazi does support the EVO economy through its money matches and is encouraged.

The following video shows the first official match of Fugazi, while play testing and brainstorming of rules was first done mid-match during Fugazi.
