Thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could just hang out and chill. Use this thread to vent about Sagat and his bad matches, or sing the King’s praises. Talk about tournies, offline and online experiences, how people treat you when they see you use Sagat, anything at all.
I’ll start off. Took 3rd at 8 on the break last night. Only lost to Marlinpie’s Viper in winners and losers. Fine with that, since he is better and of course his char beats mine so it is what it is. But man offline is so refreshing. To see my OS’s work the way they SHOULD. All my meaty traps working and getting this hit confirms in to damage into another knockdown and now my opponent is in that same situation. And the compliments fell on me like rain water. Tigers are an endangered species guys. And it felt soooooooo good to be able to react and punish the way I want. Deejay slides at me. Uppercut. Random neutral jumps. Kara TU/Step roundhouse. Rose slides at me. low short xx uppercut. Deejays knee bazooka. Uppercut. Anything every that I knew was within the human realm of punishing consistently was punished.
It was fucking glorious. I also noticed that there are still things people just don’t know about Sagat. I was punishing things that people considered safe with Tiger Genocide/ (Sagat’s Super) Even blew up a Gouki players safe jump set-up with it. I was like yeah it’s one frame you didn’t know. He just shook his head in disbelief. Smh. I think thats kinda sad cuz it shows we as a community didnt even use half of what he could do in Vanilla cuz if we did people would know that one little fact about his super.
I tore it up in casuals. Had I think a 30 something win streak then I lost one match to a Gen and then came back and messed him up and continued to streak. Felt bad for this claw player. Kept wall jumping at me and never attempted to loop me. We know how that goes. lol.
Good shit to all my opponents though and I’m def gonna keep going to offline events.
