[QUOTE]This isn't a theory; it's a fact. If you use correct jargon and string the jargon together coherently, you can sound like you know what you're talking about, even to people that actually DO know what they're talking about. It's even more convincing against people that don't have sound knowledge. With the availability of materials and things online, it's very very easy to have "theory" knowledge without any actual playing skill. Most "debate" on tiers, matchups, etc. is conducted by people with merely average skills. On SRK, there have been a good few well-respected players that are nice enough to provide REAL insight on what's what. There's a reason why "theory fighter" has a name.[/QUOTE] Heh, I suppose I'm one of those. I'm only an average player in most fighting games I play, but if I like one of those pretty badly, like SFIII:TS or GGXX, I readily inform myself in whatever forums are the more appropiated, whatching vids, reading strategies, etc., and end usually being the best example of "theory fighter". I can go on on a discussion of how the teleport cancel affects Slayer's play, although I've never been able to pull the most complicated ones (and never in an actual match, only in training), or how charge partitioning with Remy is a must have, when I struggle to get it off everytime I try to use it. However, I for one never hide that aspect: Since I know I have limited skills (reflexes, etc.), I try to improve by knowing more (and I actually succeed by a degree). I guess my "theory fighter" sills are not to try to impress anyone, but because I like the game and I want to know more about it. And I think most people that plays "theory fighter" and is not an ass is the same as me: a poor soul withou enough skills to pull off all that stuff, but that likes the game a lot.
