I've seen SFV streamers browse this site on twitch, so I thought I should post it here since it is relevant. I don't want to open it up at work because I don't want to get too distracted, but hopefully one of your peoples here will link up the pertinent SFV bracketing info.

Xiao Hai got put in losers early, and he had a target on his back the whole
time, but he kept making comeback after comeback.

He almost reset the bracket in Grand Finals, but in the last game and last round ET sealed it with the ill Daimon command grabs.

Xiao Hai ain't move from his seat for like two minutes.

Y'all don't care, because KOF and that shit ended at like 2 am EST, but it was dope.

I'm pretty impressed. I didn't know that game was that big and had that type of following.

14. "SFV: Top 8"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Winners
Punk vs. Itabashi Zangief
NuckleDu vs. Kazunoko

Losers
Moke vs. MOV
Tokido vs. Filipino Champ

Punk and NuckleDu have been the most dominant players of 2017 and 2016, respectively, so no surprises. Punk has a history of sandbagging in tournaments so good to see him stay in winners during his first EVO. Kazunoko nearly made top eight last year (lost to LI Joe in the qualifying match).

MOV making consecutive top eights in this game and with Chun's slight nerfs is impressive.

I'm a Sim stan so I'm happy to see FChamp make top eight -- he plays the best defense in SFV. too bad either him or Tokido will be out right away.

No Boxer, no Urien, no Laura, no Ibuki in Top 8.

20 out of 25 characters represented in Top 32 (4 Cammys, 4 Necallis, 3 Akumas).

Only Alex, FANG, Birdie, Ken, and Juri left out of Top 32.

In my opinion, only Juri would have been a surprise in Top 32. Gunfight's Alex, Mena's Birdie, and Dieminion's FANG all tied for 65th and could've gone further if coins flipped the other way. Two Kens (Big Bird and Chris T) made Top 64. Again, no surprise if they went further.

The highest Juri tied for 97th. That's some true overachievement.

This is a balanced fucking game. It's chaotic and unpredictable, but you can win with most of the cast and you can be consistent if you're a god like Punk, Du, or Kaz.

Go Tokido.

In response to Reply # 14


  

          

Maybe he can look at the tape from CEO and see how Snake did it, but I think Punk will probably win if he sticks with Karin.

Du should beat Kazunoko then get sent to losers by Punk.

I don't know much about Moke aside from what I've seen on the stream but I think he might win it.

Tokido vs FChamp is the most interesting one to me. No clue who is going to take that. Also, if you told me FChamp would be in the top eight at Evo I probably wouldn't have believed you.

as a result i was initially put off. after watching him over the past few months i've turned the corner on him. he seems to have few weaknesses but his spacing and reactions in particular are insane. i can't believe his how consistent and damaging his whiff punishes are. it's a joy to watch him fight

he made Grand Finals in winners AT HIS FIRST EVO.

he took home $150k from Eleague.

he's still in first in the Pro Tour standings by over 300 points.

he ain't got nothing to prove.

he has nothing to prove in the US
however; everyone and their mama knows EVO is the pinnacle of SF
it was pretty sad and amazing at the same time to watch Tokido just run thru Punk
the dismantling of Punk's game was damn THUGGERY
the only thing Tokido had on Punk was his years of experience and training with Mago
Punk although amazing, is still quite young and has a lot of maturing to do
Punk will rise up;no doubt he will, this is just the beginning

He's got a decade of 'professional' fighting game experience; and has mastered multiple fighting games along the way.

Thing is that at that high a level everyone can do the moves so it ends up being a mind match and Tokido's OG status just gives him more tools. Punk should be proud of what he's done in a short time, but SF has always been a sea of killers who at any given time will snatch your soul, he will build from this.

His whole body was shaking when he took a sip of water.

First Evo. Playing Street Fighter in the same arena Mayweather and McGregor finna be fighting at in a month. Live on ESPN. Mama and sister in the front row. All of America on your back.

Plus, word is Tokido had been eating him up in casuals. He even mentioned in one of the interviews that he expected Tokido to make it out of losers and wasn't sure he could beat him.

Punk didn't drop a single game before Grand Finals, and then got 6-0'd by Muder Face, and I'm not surprised at all.

but I'm guessing Tokido was where Punk was at last night in terms of either letting or making the pressure and whole big stage environment get into his head. On more than one occasion the commentators mentioned that Tokido started taking up either yoga or meditation to calm himself down. In addition to that, he was taking deliberate deep breaths after each round, win or loss.

Not saying Punk is going to have to take up Bikram Yoga or anything like that, but hopefully he uses this experience and the anguish he's is feeling and/or felt last night to mentally make himself stronger when the lights are flashing brighter. He was visibly nervous at the first set on Sunday night against the Zangief player; it's pretty remarkable he was able to get to the Grand Finals considering his nerves were probably shot all of Sunday night.

yeah he's won EVO in a couple of games and collects Top 8s like candy, but he never seems to get past the "top" player of the scene during EVO.

probably because I was never sold on USA winning SF in the first place. Tokido is as good as it gets, and what a performance he put on. That was a great top 8. I was also very happy about Itabashi getting in there and getting a W. I was bummed that FChamp wasn't able to close out Tokido, but I'm pretty happy with how everything unfolded.

Go America and all that, but I don't wanna see somebody who hates the game (Champ) beat somebody who praises it (Tokido) on the biggest stage.

In response to Reply # 40


  

          

the back-and-forth adaptation was too good. Champ's spacing on those "empty jump" drills? Champ's anti-airs against demon flip and the fucking yoga gale air-to-air reads? the parries and mix-ups by Tokido?

shit was beautiful.

way better than last year and a great redemption of the mess that was S2. if you didn't get excited watching those matches, get left behind.

Tokido is arguably the greatest fighting game (not just Street Fighter) player of all-time and he was executing at an insane level the entire night. also one of the most easy-to-root-for personalities in FGC history.

I gotta go next year.
