      This was a great top eight. Win or lose, @ForeverKing always puts on a show with some really exciting matches. Congrats to the top eight, and to Semij for taking it down.

      Seeing results for Sonic but didn't see him at all in top 8?

      Also wondering why Dominique McLean wasn't mentioned at all even though he was in top 8?

      So...I have counted 4 Starfires in top 8)))

      He had to make his DBZ pool

      Thanks for no spoilers, it was a good tournament. Wish there was more Grodd. I had PTSD flashbacks from the Brainiac vs Batman matchup in Forever King vs. Scar. King's one of my favorite players, I love Tekken Master and Forever King. Catwoman just doesn't do it for me as a spectator so GF wasn't really too hype but good for Semiij, great player. Everybody's play is getting better and better.

      These season 2 storylines are shaping up nicely. Hopefully soon info for the IPS finals will be announced. See you at EVO. Congrats Semiij!! Catwoman!!!!!

      Kudos to Semij for winning, really wanted Tweedy to win with Starfire though, or maybe Sonic with Michelangelo, or either Tekken Master or Bio with there Starfires (and also Bane from Bio) Still kudos to Semij, great tournament overall.

      No one got it :(

      Yea starfire is a little more bonkers than I initially thought.

      Felt like Semij was just making all the hard reads out of all of Starfire's easily available options. Like making a read whether to neutral jump on her wakeup or not, deciding whether to actually take advantage of your plus frames etc.

      Honestly idk what the weakness of this character is

      Also "In third place.... The Flash Lord God..... Biohazard!".....

      What’s broke about it?
    20. Cursa
      It basically ignores plus frames for free unless you commit to really hard reads

      It’s pretty much works like armor.. ignores star fires negative frames and the opponents positive frames and is stupid safe. Leads to like 300 damage on hit... honestly I can’t believe it’s taken us that long to realize how dumb that move is

      This top 8 was hype as hell, I was rooting for my boy Bio so hard. Everyone played great and showed just how much growth this game has gone through in a year. Can't wait to see how hard the players keep leveling up after this.

      About the starfire complaints -- Semij clearly labbed it and being able to beat all of Starfires wakeup options put him a step above everyone else. He was beating wakeup uppercut, charge, and hair flip. I bet other characters can do the same. Then there's her ignoring plus frames, it's just like chasing down a backdash. She loses the risk/reward game on it real bad, please lab more before complaining and learn what a read is. If everyone just sat there and blocked when it was their turn to block, Batman would win every match forever and Johnny Cage would've won all three MK9 evos.

      Not sure I agree so much with this statement, it's really matchup dependant considering if you make the wrong read then you are probably also eating a trait back to fullscreen while simultaneously taking 20-25% damage. Some characters can deal with that while others get hurt by it real bad

      I would also bet there is a good chunk of characters that have very few options against this, specifically those with kinda shitty normals. I'd say Bane would struggle with it if he couldn't also armour through the gap in BF2 MB.
    24. kevkopdx
      The move still doesn’t seem that great, you have to use meter to make it safe, so what if you misread and eat it? The move is only good on wake up or a good read, and on wake up it can still be stuffed. I’m failing to understand why this move should be nerfed. Her trait is by far a more interesting move for debate.
