Last week on OCFTW, a local Street Fighter stream run by Joe Bakashi and Jason, Ganguro and I were privileged enough to be invited on to the show.
Ganguro played "First to 5s/10s (FT5/FT10)" with two relatively new players to the game, Koji and CrispyChris, looking to test their mantle against a seasoned player and champion of various Street Fighter competitions locally. And I? Well, I was basically there to sell Team Xialan like the true slut that I am... On commentary duties and hosting.
Ganguro came out tops in the series of concept matches, edging pass Chris's Makoto, 10 games to 8, then proceeding to deliver Koji a crushing 10-0 defeat, playing 5 games with Ryu and 5 games with Sagat.
Koji and Chris displayed much promise throughout their sets, showing glimpses of their potential at flashing moments and introducing some new mix-ups and setups even someone like myself, who has sat through many, many tournaments watching virtually everyone from the scene play, has never seen before.
Once again, a big thank you to Joe Bakashi and Jason for granting me free reign over the entire show, I had lots of fun. Shoutouts to Koji and Chris being good sports on the mic and even Chris having a go at commentary with me! And last of all to Ganguro for extending the invitation out to me.
