Since the original thread is full of fanboys going “GODLY DAIGO DA MAN”. But let’s take a look at the match from a 3S player’s point of view.
Other options available to JWong
-turtle for another 26 game seconds
-cancel a jab fireball into the SAII
-go in cr.forward > SAII
-trade another hit
Now let’s look the first option. From the beginning of the Moment #37 video, (44 seconds left) to the random SAII (26), JWong roughly took 25-30%life of damage. Mostly because he was forced into the corner. Could he have survived another 26 seconds?
He couldn’t random super Daigo because Daigo still had sufficient life remaining, but that’s soon to be changed when the two crouching fowards traded.
At this point chipping Daigo to death has become one of the more obvious choice for JWong. I truly think cancelling a fireball into the SAII would make the parry more of a challenge. Trading another hit is also viable, but the decision was made.
The match was seemingly over, but there was ONE more thing-
Could JWong possibly super jump-cancelled the last (parried) hit of the SAII? Even the slightest of a lift of the ground would help.
If you pause the video at the moment of the last parry, the answer is YES. There was about 5-8 frames for JWong to jump cancel.
But of course, the crowd’s cheering probably overwhelmed him at the point.
Anyways, can’t wait to get the DVD and see some more of these amazing footages~ Peace.
