I’d ask for tips on Chun’s anti-air game, since that’s what troubles most newbies.

Edit:
From next post: “Do you ever play online?”
“Do you have a stick and button brand preference?”
“How would you rank all SF2 versions, in terms of your preference?”

I also have to encore Professor Jones’ question:
“Are there any particular roadblocks you encountered in your life as a ST player (for example, a character that you struggled against, a weak point in your game play that you had to overcome, or a player that was/is very hard to beat), and how did you deal with these problems?”


#3

Ask him if he thinks that guy “Random” is a fag. lolz.


#4

Ask him if he can sleep at night by playing Chunli.


#5

lol…<br><br>please ask what his personal tier list is, how he feels about players that use top tiers, what tournament settings does he prefer ( rowdy U.S. scene vs Polite Japan Scene ) if he does money matches in Japan. If so vs who and results please.<br><br>I’ll think of more later<br>


#6

<p>It would be cool if he could comment briefly about which were the best players from each chararacter he have faced as well as matchup tips… I dont even play chun nor i care about playing her, but i’m definitely interested to what a grand master has to say about such stuff.</p><p>We need a interview with Pony or Gunze… that would be awesome.</p>


#7

guys… you’re doing it wrong ASK QUESTIONS!.<br><br>example: “what is your favorite color?”<br>


#8

What are Chuns toughest matchups (explain with detail)? Generally curious as to what gives the toughest ST Chun in the world issues.<br>


#9

“Do you prefer ramen or soba?”  “Sushi or Sashimi?”  “Katsu-don or Curry?”


#10

what is his opinion about damdai, the best us player right now<br>


#11
  1. In what ways has the Osaka ST scene changed since the closing down of Nagase UFO? It seems that both Aniken and yourself, as well as many Kansai players are inactive in part due to Nagase shutting down and the scene being a lot quieter these days.<br><br>1a) Some Osaka players have moved to Tokyo apparently (e.g. Komoda, YuuVega) – did this impact your decision to go inactive?<br><br>1b) How long do you think the arcade ST scene will continue to last in Japan?<br><br>2) How did you feel about the recent East vs West (20v20) where the Kanto side won 2-0? Would the result have been different if you and/or Aniken were there?<br><br>3) Do you agree that MAO is the strongest ST player currently?

<font face=“Arial, Verdana” size=“2”><span style=“line-height: normal;”>I don’t know if you want to ask possibly, one of the best Japanese players, if they think another player is considered the best.

It’s really hard to understand how he overcomes his hurdles using one of the worst characters to go into tournaments with. At EVO 2012, he beat DGV, Damdai, and Afro Legends. All these guys use characters that are among hondas worst match ups. My experience in tournaments playing against mentally tough players, you can almost feel their will to win as a physical force pushing against you. How do these players attain the mental fortitude they possess in tournament conditions?</span></font></div>

#14

In your opinion, who is the best player for each character ?

Not to mention a ton of work for translators! <br><br>In what other activities do/did you compete with your brother?<br>What is Chun-Li’s biggest weakness?<br>If your Tougeki '03 team were to face off against themselves today, who would win?<br>What are your favorite uses for Chun-Li’s command normals?<br>What was your most heart-breaking loss?<br>

Not to mention he OCVed MAO just after he got back from USA in a 3on3 tournament. He also plays a fierce O.Ken, on par with his brother’s N.Ken.<br><br>An interesting question would be if he ever plays online and if he has a stick and button brand preference.<br>


#18

I thought of a great question yesterday that should be in every interview.<br><br>If you could only play one matchup for the rest of your life, what would it be? (You can play both sides, but only one matchup)<br>

These are great questions, especially 1a and 1b.  But <span style=“font-family: ‘lucida grande’, ‘Lucida Sans Unicode’, tahoma, sans-serif; line-height: 1.7em;”>I would probably suggest not asking question 3.  Maybe instead of asking that question about MAO, perhaps ask what he thought about ToL or more specifically the grand finals. ;)<br></span><br>I already suggested this to Philcito but he asked me to post it as well.  How he feels about playing in team tournaments vs solo tournaments (since team tournaments are typically the norm).
