So lately I’ve been trying to learn all about Guy as far as match-ups and his frame data, OS etc. The reason I want to main him is for two reasons im a fan of Final Fight as well as a huge SF Alpha ( 90’s baby the good old day’s) secondly im pulling for a low tier to pull off an EVO win. But recently I’ve been looking at youtube videos and I’ve seen some amazing stuff from people like Kiryu Tsukimiya, Papatiwawa, also who can forget Obey and Combofiend. They really make Guy seem like the best player in AE and IMO i think he is. But actually playing online and casual gaming fighting communities others as well as myself make him look average due to being “noob” even so to the point that most online gamers just consider him to be low tier character not even having a chance to win big time tournaments. But I found out from advice and tips that Guy is really worth the character to be played. I was able to get on some win streaks online and also gaming network venues.
But the people that I mentioned above just sometimes make him look like a flawless character. A couple of these guy’s went against Daigo and won but the thing is it wasn’t at the big stage or Grandmaster level of play, I could be wrong cause I don’t have exact proof that a good Guy did win a tournament, but at same time I didn’t see any headlines either. I think he does have the right tools and a great mix up game, also the ability to escape difficult situations, as I’m coming to find out the more I play. I believe some players if not most, make him average because most are comfortable with Shotos and DP fighters and God Tiers thus defaulting him to average. I think it’ll shock most if a pro Guy player win’s it all with Guy, like Mike Ross has done with E. Honda. What do you think?
