I couldn’t agree more. Plus you guys were certainly not echoing these sentiments when he beat MOV.
I think haitani would have beaten kuroda in a ft10 at pretty much any stage of the game 2008 or later regardless of character. Secondly who cares, kuroda is great. One of the absolute best, but that’s it . So are Haitani, and Match. That’s the point. Just because he does sick shit and people call him some urban legend doesn’t matter when he is up against equally good players. Kuroda, Nuki, MOV, etc… they are going to beat each other and all the time spent arguing his case as the “one true 3s God” seems silly.
I feel like it unfairly inflates his skills both positively and negatively, while simultaneously dismissing the skill of his contemporaries.
Also unfortunately in the “inspirational” quote above it states there are two types of people while listing three.
Also I hardly think if Kuroda was bordering on homelessness he would be doing interviews and playing these sets and such. I’m being presumptuous, but not as much as you guys fearing your hero being tossed into the streets. I live in DC and while there are a multitude of variables to consider. I’d still say Kuroda doesn’t appear to fit the “homeless person” billing just yet.
