I’ve tried to use the search option for this topic and can’t find anything. (Actually every time I tried to search the screen would go white and my connection would time out) So if this has been posted before, I apologize. I just hope that I don’t kicked off. The rules are very strenuous in here, but I digress.
Since I’ve been on SRK, I have noticed the occasional mention of banned characters/fighters. My question is this, if a gamer is good enough at a game that they have played and practiced to near perfection, then why would it matter who they faced, even characters deemed “unfair” or “cheap”. I believe that if your good enough, you should be able to deal with anything the game and opponent throws at you.
I may be wrong here, but I think it should be about the skill and not what a matchup possibility says. (Possibility being the key word).
Granted if you intentionally choose a weaker fighter against the more powerful one, then shouldn’t you know what you are getting yourself into? Taking a character like Dhalsim against Sagat would be akin to pulling a knife at a gunfight, but if you are good with Dhalsim then you should stand a chance (I’m sorry if I offended anyone with this matchup, it just popped in my head). Finally, if you do choose the weaker fighter and get beat, then that’s just tough, you chose him (you probably like the character) and shouldn’t whine about it. There is no mercy in my pixelated dojo. :arazz:
So what does anyone else think?
