or was he banned from the tourney?
he wasnt banned, but there were pretty much no goukens at evo, i was one of the few. one played on the big screen but he didnt do gouken justice at all. when i saw it i was like “hey its gouken” so i payed attention and then started yelling at the screen cuase of the what gouken was doing. I got some funny looks, once he lost he changed characters.
Hey I was there aswell and was truly dissappointed. What killed it most is that after getting slaughtered he immediately switched to Ryu.
To be fair, I would rather have him switch than make Gouken look even worse than he already did.
