back from EVO

Lost pretty soundly at Evo, but it was fun. Some rare footage of Daigo getting seriously whooped:

  • Jeff Elrod

    I don’t know who that player is but he put the serious beat down on his opponent! I mean the serious beat down.

  • Nate

    Yup, it was murder. The Ryu (character without a shirt) is Daigo “The Beast” Umehara, many time world champion from Japan. The Akuma (character with the hood) is Seonwoo “Infiltration” Lee, a relatively new player from Korea. He just had Daigo’s card at every turn. Infiltration focus absorbed fireballs and dashed forward to punish, shutting down Daigo’s pressure, and I think that totally threw off his game. Multiple times Daigo threw unsafe fireballs and ate a jump in, which isn’t something he normally does. Daigo tried to punish the whiffed sweep at 2:10, but Infiltration cancelled into Raging Demon, which was awesome. Ending the match with another Raging Demon was just rude. :p
