DarksydePhil is the epitome of a bad loser

Now, let me clarify. DarksydePhil is actually a good player and he does have his following. But he is such a bitch about being beaten by obviously better opponents. I mean there aren't many "scrubby zangiefs" that can pull off standing 720's. This is just one of the more recent examples, but there are lots more in which he complains about "lag" or the other player being a scrub as to reason why he lost. Whatever happened to taking a loss like a man and just giving the other player a "good game"?

Also, I am not saying to avoid playing Phil online. Just be prepared to end up on youtube if you do.

At least he never quit though, have to give him that.


April 4, 2009 at 1:06 PM

Why is this being posted here? A guy can't rage losing to the easiest and scrubbiest class in the game? A lot of the time he overreacts for his audience, and there's no shame in that, it's very entertaining. He took the loss and lost his 74 points so who gives a shit how much shit he talks? This is pathetic.


April 4, 2009 at 1:12 PM

Apparently you cannot rage in the luxury of your own home without being labled a bad loser. He wasn't wearing his xbox live headset, and he took the loss, so why is this here again?

What makes this video any diffrent than a hatemail?
He beats lesser players and talks about how shitty they are, and what a scrub they are etc.
But when he gets beat, nomatter who by, it's the same exact thing. Shitty player, scrub, etc.
It's the same as a hatemail to the player he played. Only this is more indirect, and thousands more people see it. This blog has lots of post from losers saying something along the lines of "you are shit, scrub".
And really he's not raging in his own home when he posts in on youtube and puposely overreacts.

At the end of that video he says something to the effect of 'try that with me offline', which can work both ways. If he acted like that at EVO (which he does not) he would seem like an total asshole. I'm not claiming Phil is bad by any means, nor do I have any personal issue with him, but he needs to accept losses like a man, or stop bitching about them to the world on youtube.


April 4, 2009 at 1:56 PM

I lol'd heartily at this and the inevitable shitstorm that will take place as a result of it.


April 4, 2009 at 3:18 PM

DSP is hilarious: if he loses, it's lag. He can't win because everyone turtles. Jesus, like I'm supposed to let him hit me? Lag doesn't seem to be hindering that dude's standing 720s, or his other opponents in general.

I don't buy the whole "overselling for his audience" bit, he's got a natural style of whining that sounds all too familiar. We've all been there.


April 4, 2009 at 3:58 PM

"OMG Scrubby Zangief", all the lag I saw there...NOT. This guy moans about Lariats after HE GOES INTO THEM. And people actually think he's good? You must be joking.


April 4, 2009 at 5:52 PM

Obviously the Zangief player seems to be a better player.


April 4, 2009 at 6:12 PM

He deserves to be here. Holy shit I've never seen anyone complain as much as this guy.


April 4, 2009 at 6:35 PM

Honestly, I pity DSP.

He can be a good SF player, but when it comes to losing, he sounds like one of those annoying spoiled cheerleaders, who doesn't knows how to behave facing a "no" or a "fail".

For me, it seems like that he must be a person who has a hard time when real life is the current "game being played" in his "hard drive"(lol) - so he runs to hide himself behind a Ryu or Ken avatar in his fantasy fighting kingdom of perfectness.

Well, that is just my 2 cents on DSP.

Enjoy life, take care and happy gaming. ;)


April 4, 2009 at 7:02 PM

His channel is listed as "Comedy." Buy it or not, he does act like this on camera to get reactions from people.


April 4, 2009 at 8:07 PM

this is silly the only "lag" i saw was zangief kicking his ass u dont use blanka against zangief anyway u gonna lose everytime shitface stop getting mad about losing and step your game up real talk


April 4, 2009 at 9:16 PM

About time that scrub got on the wall.


April 4, 2009 at 9:53 PM

Phil tends to explain exactly why he's mad about a loss. Online players should realize that lag does cover up a lot of disadvantage situations, and if you're used to playing offline where lag can't cover for sloppy play, this stuff doesn't work.

If he plays someone good, he gives them their props.


April 4, 2009 at 11:01 PM


Lol yea phil, they are scrubs, but you got beat by scrubs, what does that make you?


April 4, 2009 at 11:09 PM

Scrub, he said... and lag, but he always says that in lots of matches. The Zangief player wasn't a scrub though. It's entertaining to watch some of his matches, but he does insult a lot. I just watched a match he had with a Ryu player who used focus attacks, and he complained about it. He's not a great player, just decent.


April 4, 2009 at 11:09 PM

another funny thing is, he complains he can't block on his other videos, and then you see "counter hit" comes on the other players side. LOL


April 4, 2009 at 11:15 PM

There was no lag what so ever. If there even was the slightest of lag then you would notice when Blanka does he jump back dashes it woulda lagged hard. Get off of DSP's dick for a second.

This fool simply can't take a loss. I feel really bad for him too. Does he have any friends or are they all "scrubs"? That's what he seems to use so frequently. It must have been something that was tossed around at him when he was a kid.

At any rate, this 'Gief player played very well IMHO. Green hand to ultra? HOW DO YOU NOT GET OUT OF THAT?

At 0:56 he did a Blanka ball into the Lariat. The sound was obvious, you could hear Z scream, then you could hear him button press into his ball.

At 1:44 it's even more obvious, he balled right into the lariat.

If that wasn't a troll video... then this guy needs to man up and take his loss.


April 5, 2009 at 2:27 AM

Well what do you expect from someone calling himself "the king of hate"....?


April 5, 2009 at 2:48 AM

How's this guy even the least entertaining? Fuck DSP, and fuck those who swing on his nuts.


April 5, 2009 at 3:07 AM

Phil is actually a super nice guy and a great Street Fighter player, he is new to Street Fighter 4 like the rest of us and is doing his best to learn the game. When he loses he gets mad. Don't you?


April 5, 2009 at 3:27 AM

If DSP think's it's funny to act like an asshole, then who can complain when he's featured on a website dedicated to people acting like assholes?


April 5, 2009 at 5:13 AM

I'd love to agree with you all about him complaining like a spoiled brat but in a lot of spots he DID have a point. Before many SPDs and Ultras he should have been able to jump out before the grab and he did complain that he WAS holding up in which case the ultra should of not connected and assuming he meant the same thing during the SPDs then yes he lost cause of lag


April 5, 2009 at 7:35 AM

He just talk too much, like "i need a better player or i'll leave the PSN ..." what's a better versus for him a win ? tss, just a classic complainer.


April 5, 2009 at 9:34 AM

wow lag and try it offline?
there was no lag. and this shit works offline.
blame it on the other player just because u failed to control space. of course if u let daddy gief close hes gonna rub his balls in your face.

lol more proof that some of these evo "pros" are just average players :/. your evo is not the whole world.
wake the fuck up already dsp


April 5, 2009 at 1:06 PM

As a matter of fact, Phil is the scrub here. He keeps doing the same two moves and expects to win.


April 5, 2009 at 10:49 PM

LOL phil is a ranked ST player. He's pretty far from bad.

Evo pros are average players, lmao you're bad. Go to evo and go get knocked out 0-2

Until you go to a well known tournament and actually PLACE, then you cannot criticize him.


April 5, 2009 at 11:58 PM

The only thing funny about this video is that after all his bitching about Gief players, this EVO scrub hasn't learned how to fight them. It's not lag. It's not online gameplay. It's his inability to learn that's the reason he hates Gief players. He's basically bitching about someone playing a character as it should be played.


April 6, 2009 at 1:10 AM

Stupid sonovabitch made me laugh, He kept jumping into Lariats and not jumping out of 360's when Zangief got near, then went all "oh lag, lag, i can't mvoe, lag. fucking Zangief scrub" please... be a man and learn to take a fall. At least he didn't pull the plug, must have been to busy moaning.


April 6, 2009 at 7:56 AM

"Until you go to a well known tournament and actually PLACE, then you cannot criticize him."

lol did u even see that vid?
get the fuck out of here and go suck his scrubby evo dick u bum.
laughed my ass off hahaha


April 6, 2009 at 10:06 AM

You post the video in YouTube - a public piece of communication.

Thus it deserves to be here.


April 6, 2009 at 10:55 AM

Darksyde Phil: D/F - HP. Works better against Lariats than GOING STRAIGHT INTO THEM.



April 6, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Aye, the scrub was the Blanka player, not the Gief.

Blaming Lag: There was no noticable lag. Getting SPDed or Ultraed from gief is not "lag" its called "playing against gief".

Calling others scrubs: Only a scrub denounces everyone else they play as "scrubs", and then proceeds to whine like a little baby when they get beat fair and square.

Blanka Balls into Lariats: ...... lol? I mean seriously, every time he did this, he either blamed lag, or called the gief a scrub. How delusional can you possibly get?


April 6, 2009 at 1:25 PM

"lol did u even see that vid?
get the fuck out of here and go suck his scrubby evo dick u bum.
laughed my ass off hahaha"

No seriously, you're stupid. If you think people play the same online as they do off then you're only deluding yourself. Phil can be a brat, but when it comes tourney time you can't deny his skill.

If you all honestly think you can beat phil, then go to evo and money match him for 1000 dollars. According to a lot of you people posting, that's a free 1000 for you.


April 6, 2009 at 2:09 PM

If that's the case, and people do play diffrently offline than they do on, then phil is still a bitch.
If online play changes how you play the game, you learn and adapt to that. The Zangief player did, and for the amount that phil plays online, he should have learned by now too.
Also, counter-picking is for losers.


April 6, 2009 at 2:42 PM

how? HOW the fuck do they play differently offline u bitch?! tell me. i want u to tell me! offline they dont go balling into lariats but online they do? logic. WHERE IS IT YOU SCRUBBYDICK sucking motherfucker!?


April 6, 2009 at 3:57 PM

Do you really play casual matches the same as you play tournament matches? I really doubt he mains Blanka to even begin with. Also, why would you want to learn how to play online? It throws off your timing when you play in off line situations. Online matches should be taken with a grain of salt.

In any case, I'm done with you. You can't argue without resorting to unfound insults. Bye Scrub. As I said, find Phil and money match him for 1000 dollars, since you think he's so bad.


April 6, 2009 at 4:21 PM

oh wow so now hes allowed to call the other player scrub just BECAUSE he doesnt main blanka?
logic. WHERE IS IT YOU SCRUBBYDICK sucking motherfucker!?
im not even gonna bother with the rest of your unfounded bs...

the insults come from the fact that you act like a cocky bastard and apply double standarts along with the ridiculous "go money him for 1000 dullarz derpity duuuurp a duuuuuuuurp!!!! and prove your point duuuuuuh" claim.

so on behalf of all the users here i bid thee good bye. may you someday become one with your penis young asslicker


April 6, 2009 at 6:13 PM

Phil is hilarious. I have watched all of his SFIV videos now and he gets so pissed when he loses, yelling scrub and other BS and then even when he wins he calls them a scrub. The only time I remember Phil not calling a guy a scrub when losing is when he was brown nosing to a "Pro" Zangief player....LAME!! but very funny!


April 6, 2009 at 7:05 PM

"No seriously, you're stupid. If you think people play the same online as they do off then you're only deluding yourself."

Funny, I've seen some of his offline matches and he still plays like shit. (Only difference being that he doesn't have the nades to badmouth his opponents when they're standing right next to him.)

Get off his dick already.


April 7, 2009 at 3:34 AM

Dude you got your ass beaten pretty badly. thats the bottom line. pick gieff then stop complaining


April 7, 2009 at 9:21 AM

I never saw any lag. The only time he seemed to complain about lag was the screen freeze during ultras.

Also that Zangief player destroyed him.


April 10, 2009 at 1:45 AM

Regardless of everything that happened in the match, if you whine about losing and blame it on the way the other guy played, you're a scrub.

No exceptions.


April 13, 2009 at 7:11 PM

DSP isn't that great at SFIV.. I've beaten him once with my Blanka vs. his Dan. He's very good at Super Turbo though.


May 9, 2009 at 6:21 AM

Hahaha, holy shit what a gigantic douchebag.

He complains of lag because he can't magically do something after being caught in a combo?

I yelled out loud at my monitor when he was crying "can't do anything there NOT LIKE I WAS HOLDING UP OR ANYTHING"

Not like Zangief's throws have great priority or anything...


May 17, 2009 at 9:18 PM

Need to repost this, badly... I want to watch this.


May 28, 2009 at 2:38 PM

"Until you go to a well known tournament and actually PLACE, then you cannot criticize him."

That's retarded. That's like saying "YOU CAN'T SAY ANY MOVIE SUCKS BECAUSE YOU CAN'T MAKE YOUR OWN."

And he does main Blanka.


June 3, 2011 at 11:12 PM

Man, people who rage are the absolute worst gamers I know. I mean, how hard is it to think that the other guy could have something trivial like lag, too. I used to live in Australia and over there they get speeds of 100kb/s downloads, so as someone who has lived in a country where gaming on-line is so hard it isn't funny - from everyone over the please, just shut up man...


August 1, 2014 at 3:48 PM

DarkSydePhil is the biggest manchild of the entire video game industry, lol.
