I, personally, find the fact that people didn’t know who Fuudo was, prior to yesterday, a little annoying. Even the announcers talked about Fuudo like he just started playing SF4.
Dude was a Grandmaster Ryu in Vanilla, and he’s been the #2 Fei in Japanese arcades for the past 8 months. Why don’t people know that?
I don’t know if this is the right place for this, but what the hell can we do to make SRK focus more on real play?
It seems like there’s a new post on the front page about “Cool and Funny SF4 Moments #25432534” every other day. There are occasional posts about actual play, but if you looked at that, you’d think there were only 3 players in Japan (Daigo, Mago, Tokido), a few players in the US, and nobody anywhere else.
Why isn’t SRK focused on real play? I understand there’s a whole other aspect to things now, but why can’t SRK have a strong focus on the competitive side also? SRK has always had an advantage over the other SF sites, in that REAL players are involved, and back SRK. Why don’t we have more actual talk about SF on the front page? There was something up last year for like a week, that was really good, where there were a bunch of interviews with top players… but that’s it. Why don’t we have a Tournament Report kinda thing, like Wilson in Tips n Tricks, back in the day (I’m old)?
