I have to post this because after a long set with this kid, it’s obvious he was causing the lag on purpose. It only appeared when him losing was imminent and ONLY then. BlakDanielz in SF4 was definitely using lag tactics.
Our last set was Seth (yes he used seth and thought he was good) vs Fei. I utterly destroyed him, and at the very last second, the game locked up, and before I could move he did a wall jump towards me, but whiffed; and I got my last needed hit in. (It didn’t lag until JUST at that moment).
Another time he was TRYING to mirror me with Fei was getting rocked; the game started lagging hardcore (but he was moving more freely than I was) and he still lost, and those were the only times he used the excuse of “OMFG U WON CUZ OF LAG”.
After I called him out on it during the Seth set, we magically got disconnected.
I didn’t think this was easily possible, but I’m pretty damn sure he was abusing lag.
(Apparently this guy’s name gets around, sorry if anyone disagrees with me, but I saw it happen.)
