I think Geom has a fine Guile. Admittedly I wasn’t much of a fan of the way he played at first. But over time, he’s become really solid. I think he could handle offline competition to a degree. But it’s much different when you’re playing online matches from the comfort of your home, and going to a tournament with serious players. Sometimes you can be taken completely out of your game due to external pressure, and sometimes it makes you feel better. Some just don’t have it, like a friend of mine. A great casual player who can hang with the best, but is lousy in tournaments. I wouldn’t call Geom the best Guile until he’s played quality offline competition. I think he gets a lot of people’s votes because he’s very flashy though,
In terms of the best Guile, it would have to be Dagger G or Yoshio. Both have grinded it hard, and have done well at tournaments. Nico Nico Mark is another noteworthy Japanese player. Within only a few months he got 40k + BP, and has placed well a numerous TRFs. Furasan is also good too.
Yazu is the mystery Guile. no one is sure just how good he is, but he is damn good. I read on youtube that his arcade does not releae videos anymore, so seeing his gamplay is very rare. However whenever we do see him, he does well. He also is the only grandmaster Guile. I know Hiko was a grandmaster at one time, but not sure if he is anymore. However due to lack of vids of him, it’s hard to make a real judgement about how good he is. He doesn’t live in Tokyo, so he probably can’t attend TRFs too often. I still think he may be the best Guile player in the world, but it’s very hard to see any of his stuff. He’s kind of like Guile’s version of Bouyan (the top ranked Zangief player that has no videos anywhere).
