There is no, one final Street Fighter tournament. Teach other players to get better, you will see better play, you will make better players, you will have better games, It will be more exciting to watch, we will get to see comraderie between the players and… if somebody steals your tech, figures you out, takes home the victory? There’s always next year, man. And he’ll have given you the blue-print to master yourself, as you were not already mastered.
Far too often, I see guys get their backs up as soon as another player tries to offer them advice. Or, you’re watching a stream and you’ll see Strider101 giving advice to somebody and suddenly everybody is acting like this dude doesn’t know how to play Street Fighter, doesn’t know about any character’s weakness, just because there are two of them on the stage, and one he has not played with, against the other. This is a retards logic.
You’ve gotta set your pride to one side. It will make you better. I remember when this place was about teaching each other. Not just ripping the shit out of each other for man-up points. Those points are as worthless as your BP/PP. Teach each other, instead, right? That’s how we all get better. That’s how new players come back, because you give them a technique instead of leave them discouraged.
