    Hi all,

    Did anyone attend this? and is there anyone able to validate if the statement here about the darksoft boards is true: https://www.reddit.com/r/StreetFighter/comments/6oda0o/super_turbo_tournament_at_evo_was_great_proves/dlr16rm/?context=3

    Cheers!
    Darksoft boards are fine. They've been used at many ST events including Canada Cup and Combobreaker.

    Question not about meaties, must be an impersonator.
  • Re: Is Discord hurting the FGC?

    Facebook and Reddit were killing it in the same way first. Personally not a fan of any of those, including discord, for any serious discussion for a single reason: documentation. Anything put out on any of those formats are essentially lost in the aether. SRK remains relevant for me in 2 areas, tech talk is very active and full of quality info and the wiki is an indispensable resource.

    I've heard you can padhack one of those 8bitdo controllers, they only cost $30. I hacked a pro controller and you have to hit some pretty tiny solder points for the triggers, and it's $70.

    The game is fun despite its problems, interesting to see if Capcom is willing to patch it in the future

    Let me come over and test the game so I can legit hate on it.

    This is the correct answer, this game did everything it could to make me lose interest. I have a friend that bought it, but I don't even want to make an effort. They slowed it down, ruined throws and put in 2 edgelord characters and put in NO FULL CLASSIC MODE. Fouck outta here Capcom.
    Blind hate is dumb. So many people are just repeating the same false info that was reported in articles months ago. If you gave it a try you would notice immediately the speed isn't slower, and it's way too early to say throw techs ruined throws. Go play the game before speaking, fuck outta here with that ignorance. ST is basically dead right now, like it or not. Unless you're gonna put the effort in to run legacy tournaments and get people to show up, this is the best we get for now.

    ST had 117 entrants at Combo Breaker, I'd call that far from dead. Anybody that calls ST dead is really not involved in the scene in the slightest. It's actually having quite a renaissance right now. And yes, I have been helping to put on tournaments for ST on arcade hardware over the last year. Wednesday Night Fights in both Toronto and SoCal have solid regular turnouts, and Chicago has an active and growing ST scene. Throwtech completely changes the way some characters play and being able to tech out of mash throws negate their purpose entirely. Oh and people had it available to play at Combo Breakers and it is certainly slower. Supposedly it's Turbo 1 x 1.35. This isn't blind hate this is an honest dislike for the game. Sure it can exist as a separate entity from ST, but it's very underwhelming.
