That was actually the first time he had ever played it. S-Kill was saying on the stream that Daigo was asking him what had changed for HDR.
You could actually see it in action on the stream. The first match he played was as Guile against a Claw player, who kept doing the fake wall dive to bait out a flash kick. He kept using the forward flash kick, which I’m assuming is the best way to punish a regular Wall dive in ST. The claw player didn’t have to work too hard to punish his whiffed flash kicks.
He was playing much better in losers when he switched to Ryu, but he got knocked out by Graham Wolf, who used straight up boxer skills to take him out.
Anyhow sorry if I’m coming across as a fanboy, it was just kind of interesting.
Without a Japanese arcade release, its doubtful that this game will ever get any serious traction over there.
