East Coast Throwdown: Road to Evo 2012
Unknown vs. OMG Itz Andre was fantastic in this under card first to 10 match. Andre popped off around game 4 after going up 3-1 screaming at the crowd, “YOU BET ON THIS GUY?”. Then both players proceeded to take rounds off each other (and dropped combos) and it went up and down with Unknown coming out on top after getting two perfects in the final three games to win 10-9 and proceeded to get in Andre’s face. Staff members actually had to get involved and the crowd screaming. It was the definition of FGC Hype.
Then Fanatiq “PLEASE GIVE ME DONATIONS SO I CAN BUY A CHEESEBURGER” vs. RayRay was such a disappointment due to the one sided nature of the match despite there being quite a few games in the FT15. RayRay started out up 2-0 and it was looking like Fanatiq didn’t even want to try to go in. Then RayRay started throwing away game after game to Fanatiq’s BEYONZO. Fanatiq then picked up 8 or 9 games in a row before Rayray picked up another and not even the mouth on the mic Yipes could say anything. He was constantly being tormented by a patronizing Mike Ross and simply couldn’t say a thing. Fanatiq finally put RayRay out of his misery15-4 or 15-5 and he did not pop off. The crowd was mostly quiet and then the post game interview by Mike Ross with Fanatiq was also pretty somber. The whole thing was anti-hype.
So yeah, if anybody was wanting to know what happened with the money match, there it is.
