Some of the greatest 3S players to ever play, set in matchups some of us have wanted to see for forever, commentated by top players of those characters!
HAYAO the greatest Hugo of all time, played against Genki the best Alex of recent times!
HAYAO IS SICK
Hayao's got an intuition about his opponent's that is UNCANNY: you talk about how there are people who can grasp the intent of those around them, and Hayao has that to an astonishing degree. His ability to do 720 grabs in situations where most wouldn't even think it is an option is beyond belief. He is one of the greatest legends of the game, unquestionably.
The Kuni vs. Tominaga match is everything I imagine the people who worked on SF3 wanted when it comes to "a game where you cannot master the game perfectly through analyzing it". It was simultaneously pure random chaos coupled with tremendous technical skill, lighting reactions and mindbending improvised tactics. Nothing about it made sense and everything about it made sense. It is absolutely one of the greatest matches of 3S ever played, and nearly each game of it was a highlight reel of thrilling moments. Nuki was LOSING HIS MIND commentating that match with his characteristic excitement, which only made it better.
RX however, is someone who tried to master the game by analysis, being the one who was the pioneer of Urien's tremendous Aegis Reflector techniques, and getting to see him play a FT10 against possibly the most famous of all Necro players, Sugiyama, was suitably fantastic.
This entire event has been a carnival of dream matches for fans, and it still isn't over!
