So I’ve been learning a new Tekken character lately. I went to the character’s forum on TZ and started reading ‘top 10 moves’ lists. The Tekken players among you probably know that most of the top 10 lists posted on TZ are from personal experience of people and they can be really crappy sometimes. So anyways I was going through the posts and suddenly saw a list (+explanations) that made so much sense… it was so by far the best list in the thread.
Then I looked at who posted it- A top Korean Tekken player.
And I started thinking, “why stop here? why not have something like this for other games and more often?”
Imagine having Komoda write some Blanka tips for us, or having Kaqn explain the Ragna-Litchi matchup etc. etc.
I think when people get help from celebrity players who are considered the best of the best, it encourages them to push harder and get better at the games.
Contacting Japanese players and asking them to write stuff seems like an easy task for an organization(SRK) that can bring Daigo for events in the US, and establish an “evo championship” in Japan.
We also have enough Japanese speakers on these forums who can help translating.
What do you think?
