Abominable_K beats GENESIS430

This is from Typhron and a friend Abominable_K getting a few matches in last night before the patch.
I'll just say this to GENESIS430: If you think half the people playing online are cheap, you've already lost.

i can feel Genesis430's pain. though i would never pull zangief is the cheapest piece of crap in this game. you do not need skill to play him. spam some lariats and backfists, some ex throws and the opponent is dead. highest stamina, strongest attacks in terms of damage and priority (lariat stops many ultras). it just sucks if you know your combos, you are a good zoner and are able to counter but it doesn't matter against gief.

Low RH > Lariat.

One would like to point out this guy was using Sagat rather poorly.

And by poorly I mean there's a reason he lost.

Um, Sagat >>>> Zangief in that matchup. It takes a lot of effort for Gief to get in through a wall of Tiger Shots. Anyway, he lost because he didn't know how to block crossups and kept trying to reversal Tiger Uppercut even though I timed my splashes to beat it out.

If people can't block right that's not my problem; I accomplished what I needed to. If you'll excuse mer, I'm gonna go take that nap; I feel I earned it.

You can only complain about Zangief requiring no skill whatsoever IF you pick anyone else but Sagat. If you use Sagat all bets are off and you simply cannot complain.


April 24, 2009 at 6:05 PM

whatever. i don't have respect of most zangief players. and even if you feel like you earned something. i doubt 99% of all zangief players did.

zangief is cheap and i can understand genesis for suggesting to switch to another char.

I get Zangief=no skill messages all the time. If that were true, explain how I perfected your tiger shot spamming azz!


April 24, 2009 at 9:32 PM

The irony of a Sagat player calling another's character as cheap is hilarious.


April 25, 2009 at 12:39 AM

sagat is the easiest guy in the game to play with,,, what is this guys deal!!!!! Anyway did you take up his offer on the nap? You probably got worn out beatin his ass.


April 26, 2009 at 4:36 PM

As the others have stated this man plays with Sagat he has no right to complain about anything.


April 27, 2009 at 8:01 PM

Oh stop crying that gief is a scrub char. If hes so scrubby, dont lose to him. If you know hes gonna spam lariats, whats the surprise? if your standing when hes next to you, why are you surprised you got hugged?

Ive mained gief since alpha2 and this crap makes me sick. Ill go a whole round without lariats. ill go rounds without spds. let me see a ryu/ken go rounds without hadoukens or srks.
I beat on people with pokes and combos..
Come now. I perfect other Giefs because they think they can spam lariats and what not.

For those of you who think Zangief is cheap, most of you probably do not even know how to play a Zangief matchup and always get caught in his spd's, lariats, supers, or ultras.

Try using Zangief yourself against people who know how to play and see if it requires no skill. Believe me, I main Akuma and I have tried using Zangief. It is annoying to close in on people who know the matchup.

Romzen and all the other crybabies whining about Gief, STFU. Play with him for a week and tell me how easy he is to use.
