    Instead of continuing to talk shit let's throw down some money and you can prove your knowledge of the game that way

    Your 2005 skills are very scary dawg. Come play Let Blood Run.

    I found the hate from random guys from the FGC super weird and annoying. I read various twitters, articles, etc where people talked about "this is the time of the year where everyone gathers to pretend they like 3s" or "they just keep playing their dead game" or to remind people that American OGs didn't like the game that much. When you watch a bunch of players gather to play their favorite game and take it to new heights each year, and decide that the best use of your time is to shit on it, you've really missed the boat IMO. Either enjoy it or don't watch right? No one cares that you or some old guy from 1999 don't like 3s lol.

    I didn't mean to sound so defensive about it, but I just think there are quite a few guys who don't live in Cali who can do better.

    Yuuki, Frankie NY for example.

    I touched on this on mutants podcast today (check it out on YouTube soon!), but Justin would do terrible in Japan. He's an amazing player and arguably the best American Street Fighter player of all time, but Japan knows about Chun. If you don't know about the current game, you won't do well.

    Rom doesn't play 3s anymore at all too. :(

    Frankie3s was one of the best players, but he would need to show his dominance in 2017 to be considered imo.

    Pyro would do well in Japan, so I'd put him on the Dream Team if he were able to go.

    If I could make the best team for next year it would be

    Ryan, yi, yuuki, pyro, nica.

    Pyro might not be able to come, and I think Nica would choose his friends to team with.

    There has never been a team of the best Americans at SBO or COOP. The teams were always missing a key player (Amir, Vic) or had some guy who kinda snuck on (gootecks, kai).

    A true American Dream Team would do well at Coop.

    yeah unfortunately it's also an issue of expense, time, etc.
    reality is garbage sometimes. that'd be a really fun team to watch though. some old school and some new school!

    I'm talking to YOU. And I'm gettting better everyday, especially since I've started practicing mostly my execution. Come see me.


    And thanks for the clarification on that Ryan! To help strum up competition over here, I think it would be cool to do an annual rank of the top 25ish active US players, as decided partly by popular vote and by a panel of experienced players based on tournament results.

    In regards to "everyone gathers and pretends to like 3s", i think those people are referring mainly to the stream monsters and aren't really shitting on the scene. Those thousands of viewers that don't tune in any other time of the year have to have some among them. People that are experts all of a sudden and wave their knowledge dicks at each other in stupid chat arguments rather than watching.

    top 25?
    are there even 25 people who care about something like that?

    if you want to play 3S for super realsies you go to Japan. everything else is great and fun too but i don't think many people care about domestic ranking. it's 2017.

    We talked about a top 25 players list in xbl chat a few weeks ago and there seemed to be a lot of interest. Maybe it would bring excitement as players don't like where they are ranked and set out on a journey of destruction to prove themselves. And could give people outside the community kind of a guide of players to pay attention to.

    Personally I think it would be cool if someone thinks they deserve top 25, doesn't get it, and starts traveling to prove everyone wrong.

    I disagree with you on this. I think you're mistaken that people don't (or at least wouldn't) care about that sort of project. It's a nice motivation that wouldn't require a crazy amount of effort. I'm sure there is a small but decent handful of older and newer players that would appreciate the competitive glory brought by a national ranking system. It's most likely that population that loves the game and wants to prove their skill, but isn't in the position to drop everything and move to Japan, which is a vast majority of players. It couldn't hurt. There are plenty of other communities that have done so concurrently with consistent local tourneys and it has only strengthened those communities.

    people love anything in list format

    and people love arguing about old school vs new school players, or my scenes players vs your scenes players

    that's kinda what it seems like and what i meant.
    having a good game > placement on a list imo. they're not mutually exclusive it's more what you think is important.
    but this could all be because I definitely won't be anywhere near placing on such a list :)
