a brief review of KOF 13 evo a repost actually from other threads
This year’s wsn’t as good but it didn’t suck either, it was just disheartening to see Tokido go down like that after he really invested in the game…
Now I’m sure Tokido will drop the game like a bad habit
and i’ve seen the comments from youtube and neogaf and such and it was all complaints about Karate, Iori, and Kim, but they ignore that we saw a clark, a daimon, a saiki, and a chin at the finals.
granted from a spectator standpoint the grand finals weren’t hype but for a specific analytical view (like the ones required to analyze say a Fei Long vs Fai Long match) it was rather technical, and seeing Tokido and Xiaohai download each other was in a way on it’s own more satisfying than Reynald just plow through Hee San Woo last year, of course reyna;d’s is better because of the entire story that was told in that top 8, and had Tokido won it would have been the same story.
Those complaining about No Bala, Reynald, and Romance are a bit off, this tournament is just as filled with Killers…
ET and Madkof (which is a previous evo champ) can body peeps like Luis Cha and Khanibalito which are on the same footing as Reynald, Kusanagi can go toe to toe with Bala on grueling and Tiresome FT20’s and guess what he didn’t even make it, Tokido knocked him off, Mr. KOF at any given time can be as good as Reynald (since they’re sparring partners anyway) and Tokido also took him out.
Still i wish for a Tokido vs Misterio FT10
But sadly according to a lot of people KOF had the worst Top 8 of this year’s evo, and call in conspiracy but i guess the stage and odds were really stacked against KOF’s favor, no sunday spot crappy commentators and a crowd of crickets from start to finish.
