    I think this is silly to do until we got a list of attendees (and VERY silly to do 6 months prior to the actual tourney - who knows, maybe Infil gets unlocked or someone levels up mad during this half year?)
    Why.

    1) Daigo, if he finally decides to start counterpicking

    if not then

    1) Infiltration, because he will choose Akuma/Gouken/Hakan/?? appropriately to give him an advantageous matchup, although he doesn't seem to have a counterpick for Yun or Cammy yet

    exactly ... daigo if he finally decides to counterpick like infiltration does for years + daigo has a biger set of characterrs in the pocket ... he has one of the best (if not the best) Yun ,a strong akuma a fantastic guile,cammy ... so if he finally stops that character loyalty bulshit he could be the NM.1 again in the world
    .
    .
    .
    if not , infiltration's gonna take it easily again...i think he countered Yun with Hakan against Hugo101

    No PR Rog is the strongest. I'd be surprised if any other american player makes it to a better spot than him at evo. He beat Ricky and Dieminion with a character he picked up a month ago and both of them could also be called the best american player.

    hmmm i didnt folow the american scene lately... i just know ricky has a pocket cammy (which is allready a monster) , justin has a strong adon too ,pr rog droped barlog for fei long (but hes gonna use him probably in certain matchups) so its really hard to pick one as the strongest ...for my taste its sadly ricky ortiz

Gootecks, PR Rog, Ricky Ortiz and Filipino Champ ( not sure of ethnicity but brown), Justin Wong, James Chen, Infiltration, Dieminion, AfroCole, Alex Valle, Hugo101, Snake Eyez, Mike Ross.......... to be honest I can't even remember a white guy being there :D

    top 4 in evo2k13 in no specific order :
    digo
    infiltration
    tokido
    ricky ortiz

    I heard that one a stream a few days ago from kazunoko, that he's been giving Daigo tips on ae2012 Yun. And he also said that Daigo was using Yun at the arcade all day just the other day...

    my top 4 list
    Daigo Ryu/Yun
    Infiltration Akuma/ Gouken
    Kazunoko Yun/ Seth
    Poongko Seth

    Something tells me if infiltration runs into Daigo or Kazunoko before the finals, it will be good matches but i can for some reason picture seth killian saying " Infiltration looking alittle shaken after that last round and Daigo/kazunoko is sitting on almost full meter... infiltration looking like he's trying to stay clear of that standing strong range of Yun....... Ohhh wait speak of the devil!!he gets the standing strong into shoulder...!!( Yun voice, perferabally Japanese voice) Genejin!!! ay!1 yeeup yeeup yeeeup, ayyyyaa, yeeeupp, ayaaaa, ayyyy, ayy,, aya, K.o!!!!(fireworks) infiltration has been sent t losers bracket!! Daigo giving us that feeling of AE11 Yun nostalgia!!" James chen: yeah you said it, ahh yes, those broken days... next up Poongko vs tokido! Lol at my story but sounds true.

    PR Rog is of hispanic descent. His name is Eduardo Perez or something. As far as I know race in America is not characterized by phenotype but by ethnic heritage.

    As for FilipinoChamp, yeah the dude is FIlipino, I get it! I get it! As for knowing who colonized the Phillipines, eh, who cares

    Even as a foreigner I really hope an American player wins EVO this year, it would be nice to see the hosts win it at least once. If not, then lets see that European magic please!

    A few words on the players :

    -PR Rog has insane reactions and a good chance to go really far but I he will have a hard time competing with all the visiting stars.
    -Infiltration, well everyone will want to beat him at this point. Not too far ago Hugo specifically planned against his Akuma and I bet others are also making their own "notes". D
    -Daigo is still the best player in the world in my opinion even though Infiltration is up there definitely. He just needs to devote some time to Yun again and use the character for all those difficult match-ups (Dhalsim etc).

    Top 5 in no specific order : PR Rog, Daigo, Infiltration, Kazunoko and.....hopefully Dieminion just for hype!

    I normally wouldn't bother replying to something so mind-numbing, but... is that really your response? Just gonna call me a retard. Among the "I don't understand someone on the internet but I cannot formulate an argument" responses, calling someone dumb is maybe the least insightful. Somewhere below questioning their reading comprehension or simply typing "herp derp" like it means something. Just fyi, Hispanic is neither a phenotype nor a race.

    Anyways, Fuudo is top 3 or so in my book. The dude plays Fei. It's awesome that Dieminion and Daigo are doing their thing, and they can definitely make top 8 again, but the biggest tournament will not be won by Ryu or Guile alone.

    I think Daigo is the best overall player, hes got the best footsies, experience and reads on people but I dont think he can win it with Ryu. Ryu needs more tools, like what Akuma has.

    Anyway Daigo needs to counterpick if hes going to win anything.
    ·
  • chubbyfingerzchubbyfingerz Kore ga Saikyo-ryu da! Joined: Posts: 1,584 ✭✭✭
    I think Daigo is good enough and Ryu is good enough. He won Japan and he took 2nd to Infiltration on Capcom 25th. He beat Infiltration 3-0 before losing 6-0.

    He is good enough, his Ryu is good enough. But over the course of championship with 2000 people there are simply too many things that can go wrong, too many chances to do a couple of poor reads in a row.....

    When it comes to the top 8, if you exclude terrible matchups, it's pretty much a coin toss.

    I can understand Japan has the better arcade scene, and all that. However why is it most of the top American players are Asian as well? It's like when you go on the basketball court and some fit black dude walks on. You automatically think...alright watch out for that dude! Same thing with asians and fighting games it seems.
