First off, I have been playing Marvel vs. Capcom 2 since 2000, and started playing the other SF games shortly after B4. I am under the complete understanding that Capcom fighting games are the most skillful of all fighting games.
I’ve been having somewhat of a debate with a friend of mine about the difference in skill level between Capcom fighting games (specifically MvC2), and Super Smash Bros. I told him that I remember a friend of mine telling me that at EVO 2004 or 2005 a good Japanese SF player only played Smash for a few weeks, and got top 8. I told my friend that would never happen in a SF game, let alone MvC2 (the most complex, and skillful of the Capcom fighting games IMHO).
So, I need a top 8 list of all the EVO’s if someone has that info stored somewhere. It would help in proving the utter retardation of Smash being spoken in the same sentence as a Capcom fighting game.
BTW, I have a $20 bet with him tomorrow over the two game (Smash and MvC2). We will play each game 25 times, and the person with the least amount of losses will owe the other person $20. If there is a tie (both 25-0), then we will have judges to say who had the most amount of dominating wins. There is also a side bet about my ability to take at least half of his life more times than he will be able to kill at least one of my characters. I will be playing Cable/Sent/CC.
Any added responses as to the hilarity of this situation are also welcome. :woot:
