Shaking hands before or after matches. i get it but...

    i dont generally go all out to shake peoples hands... i dunno, i find it strange, but i will most certainly shake a hand that is offered, its plain and simply a dick move not to.

    the one thing that can piss me off is when i get beaten and someone is all happy as shit that they won and then expects me to shake the instant they win... i'm generally not in that good of spirits after a loss and shaking hands is the last thing i want to do at that moment... emotions are taking over at that point, to me its kinfd of like rubbing salt in the wound to offer a shake after a win.

    but i dont treat it that way cause i know my opponents motivations arent like that... but thats still how it feels.

    i'm ashamed to say that i've given people cold receptions when they offer thee hands... and i've had the fucking idiots take it personally like "why arent you happy that i won and not you?" SERIOUSLY?

    wow, but yeah that shit happens all of the time even though ii actuall harbor no ill feelings towards my opponents... if they give me a minute or 2 to cool the fuck off, then they will generally get a much more enthusisatic and non bs congratulations from me.

    but in the moment, i'm liable to still be looking for blood and/or feeling sorry for myself or thinking back to why i lost so i can prepare for the next match... at which point i really dont want to interact with anyone. its like normal human behavor to be mad to not get something that you worked very hard to achieve.

    Look up the term "tourneyfag".

    This is what most people think of us.

    I didn't know most people posted on /v/. Thank you for alerting me.

    btw 3s didn't die. The old guys that run evo and all the other tournaments forced it into retirement because it couldn't turn up a nice enough profit for their mcribs and abercrombie jackets.

    ^nah, a proper handshake would look like an attempt for scissors, so rock beats scissors. i win still. now if he went for like a sideway hand shake, i might lose though.

    What if they FADC into paper?

    I feel the only thing you need to know is your opponents name so you can play them and that's it. Shaking hands just seems awkward a lot of the time to me, a good game or somethin (if it even was) is more appropriate. I mean when a dude let me use his stick and I beat him, I said sorry and handed it back to him, no shake. I mean he let me use his shit so I said good luck with the rest but outside of that, I really didn't want to shake his hand and put on a show when he was feelin bad anyway.

    And besides, how meaningful do you really think shaking hands are after any sporting event unless it's like... the Super Bowl and it was actually not a blow out? I know when I played football not a one of us gave a shit about gettin in that line and slappin hands or shakin hands or whatever. We just smacked those dudes around for an hour and a half you think we care how they feel?
    Sorry I am standing so far away...I don't want any of your game rubbing off on me

    Forget shaking hands. I spit on their shoes.. win or lose.

    Its a simple gesture of respect and friendship. I dont really like shaking someones hand after a match. Sweaty hand shakes dont feel so good. I do it anyhow.
    when I die... may there be friends who will grieve for me,who will carry our shared joys and pains, who will carry my memory
    This is the immortality of the spirit, the ever-lingering legacy, the fuel of grief.
    but so, too, the fuel of faith

    I'm meh on handshakes, verbal recognition that I'm playing a human being is my preference.

    Fist bump is a little too "UFC T-Shirt" for my taste. I'm also not a fun of the black dude "secret clubhouse handshake and half hug" thing. A respectful handshake suits the timelessness of Street Fighter.

    Also, you guys are trying too hard to relate this issue with video games. If a dude won't shake your hand on the street, they're probably an arrogant douche. If it happens at a tournament, they're probably an arrogant douche.

    This is only acceptable if you're Kuroda. Oh? You're not Kuroda? Get your head out of your ass, dude, it's a game. Games are fun.
    - it looked really annoying
    so I kept doing it

    Wow, I never really knew that a simple gesture such as a handshake. Really made people upset.

    Im that guy who always offers the handshake after the match. Win or Lose, when I get wiped out its harder to do. Cause I feel like I didn't bring my full A-game. But still, I man up. Accept the loss, learn from it, and offer a simple handshake...Although recently, I've been using the fist bump more these days.

    Oh come on your not giving blood FFS, what does it cost for a handshake? I've always try'd to be as chivilrous and polite as possible at all times so i wouldn't even consider storming off like a toddler.

    As for that tourneyfag BS, would that mean any professional player at anything applys to this? because sportsmen have always been respected, you wouldn't go up to an olympic gold medalist and call them a *** would you?

    This is clearly the correct way to act after a match.

    Just be like Kuroda and walk off, and don't acknowledge your opponent.

    Kuroda is a G.
