    Great tournament so far with clutch matches and some amazing upsets. Cha beating Reynald, Madkof going early, White Ash winning over M'... Too bad Xiaohu couldn't make it to top 8, almost beats Xiaohai but dropped combos costed him the set. Finals are going to be great.

    Especially when the opponent was Xiao-fricken-Hai. It wasnt even brought to a reset.

    That was an amazing show overall by KOF 14.

    Extremely solid pool footage and excellent Top 8 and Grand Finals.

    With over 32,000 + viewers at Top 8 and lots of hype moments overall, I think KOF 14 should be good for next year's Evo.

    And I had either ET or MadKOF winning it all so I'm good.

    Props to XiaoHai for making it to the finals in such a difficult tourney but ET deserved the championship.

    ET has been on a tear from a couple of months back so IMO is good that the right guy won.

    Also, watching XiaoHai crying at the end of the Finals moved me a little.

    Xiao is a little smug but is obvious that he cares and loves KOF a big deal and more than Street Fighter.

    I don't think we would have seen the same emotions from Xiao if it was a Street Fighter 5 final.

    Hi everyone, I currently own KoFXIII on steam, and I'm considering buying XIV and I have an important question before I fork the 70 euro.
    Are combos hard? like how much buffer do you have?
    When I was young I used to play KoF and Guilty Gear regularly and I could do shit.
    Now I am much older and I've been away from the fighting games for a decade, I got back into fighting games with SFV and GG Rev2, but I play SFV exclusively right now because in GG and KoFXIII I have major problem doing even simple combos from trials, while in SFV thanks to the buffer I can do literally anything.
    Now I've heard KoF XIV is very beginner friendly so I was wondering where does it rank I guess.

    Also how is the netcode on PC and how hard do you think it woould be to find matches in the Taiwan Area.
    Afaik no cross-platform, right?

    kof 14 is as easy as kof is gonna get, 13 had some problems with overlapping inputs in HD combos for me like KYO and mr karate, generally it's pretty damn easy but i'm very experienced in lots of fighting games some of which are crazy hard, world heros perfect ff special kof 96 ff3, so maybe my opinion aint quite as valid as those who are new, i just know that in 14 there's nothing i cannot do because it's "too hard"
    AAAAAAAAS WE ENTER!

    Benimaru had a very strong presence here, much more than Iori and kula and I'm only going off top 8, not top 16 or 32

    Also Xiaohai crying, or at least I think he was got me emotional too. His "cockiness" came from his success in the series he loves, this success has been going on for decades since KoF '98. He has every reason to be confident and cocky on twitter, he played the heel so people would be more excited and want to see how the lore plays out.

    Any time he loses in SFV he doesn't show not even 1% emotion close to his loses in KoF especially to ET recently. I haven't watched him play SFV in months, because I know his heart lies in KoF and that's the franchise where he gives it his all, puts his heart and soul into the game Everyone in that tournament put their heart and soul into it, I want more KoF tournaments like this.

    I can't think of a time when KOF top 8 wasn't hype.

    I really hope this game makes a return next yr. Way too good to not bring back.

    Everyone's like "DAIMON WON EVO."

    Meanwhile Benimaru's just chilling off to the side after doing most of the work, "Yeah, I guess I'll just let him enjoy this one for now."

    People eat hype stuff. Enjoy the show. Most don't care about the technical stuff or real stuff. If you going off the gamerbee video, that wish me screaming the Daimon won Evo. Gotta sell the fake shit after all.

    Oh, make no mistake.

    KOF 14 brought it hardcore this year. It brought the numbers and the hype. It was even more hype than Injustice 2.

    If they don't put it in the lineups next year then EVO has truly failed.

    Easy solution, get rid of one of the Smash games. Two Smash games as main tourneys is too many.

    I wish Soulcalibur was back. Then we would have the perfect EVO.

    We humans love money, and those smashers sadly bring in that money. It really sucks to see 2 smash games there, when there's 1 KoF, 1 SF, 1 Tekken and so on. Its meant to be a celebration of fighting games, then again Mario Kart was at Evo at some point.

    I can help you with Mai if you have any questions or if you need details.

    For Angel... try to look for Alan Francois' videos on youtube. I also believe that Coliflowerz has a combo guide on her. I would provide links but I am at work.

    More like Evo is the E3 for fighting games. As I said a celebration for fighting games.

    Also seeing videos of the crowd for smash with empty seats, seats that were filled during Geese reaction trailer videos so that means everyone dipped when the announcer said "smash". Completely killed the hype. Also viewership dropping for it too, why they put smash after the amazing show from Tekken and Blazeblue ontop of insane reveals is beyond me.

    Geese look generic imo, he almost look like B. Fury. I'm glad this isn't the "realistic" style SNK's going for even with all the concept art they showed in the artbook. Anyhow, good to SNK's for letting Geese appear in other games where his roles in his own game (FF) has pretty much ended.

    I've been on the fence about Tekken 7 but I went straight to Steam and bought it immediately after Geese was revealed! I can't wait for winter!
