      Top 16 was hype. Looking forward to top 8! Broad showcase of talented players and characters.

      Also, I'm convinced. GL Catwoman is 8-2 MU. There's our bad matchup
      :DOGE

      so im just going to say, Hayatei is going to be problem going further. That man constantly gets better every tournament. he's my favorite going in, if he doesnt face Sonic Fox's Red hood.

      Hell yeah!! Nice, diverse top 8. For a relatively small turnout, the killers are out in full force.

      Shocked Dragon got 9th, bummer for him

      Gross winner's side too 8 with GL!!! Fuck yes man. Gross' GL is my favorite character to watch. I hope he gets top 3.

      This notion that Robin is low tier is gotta die quick.
      Robin will be top5 once patch hits.

      Robin definitely isn't low tier, but top 5 is just as lol

      My predictions:

      Theo vs SFox - SFox wins

      Gross vs Hayatei - Gross wins


      WFs: SFox vs Gross - Gross wins


      Grr vs King - King wins

      Whiteboi vs Destroyer - Whiteboi wins

      Theo vs Whiteboi - Theo wins

      Hayatei vs King - Hayatei wins

      Hayatei vs Theo - Hayatei wins

      LFs: Hayatei vs SFox - Hayatei wins



      GFs: Hayatei vs Gross - Hayatei resets bracket but Gross wins in the tournament!

      As it stands there are no repeat characters in top 8(excluding pocket Aqua, Cat, and Adam). The variety is real in this top 8. Im curious to see if Theo can't clap back against SonicFox's red hood. Guess we'll see if Aquaman fairs better than Superman did at evo 17. So many stories to be unfolded, i can't wait till this top 8.

      edit: And i get a new episode of Game of Thrones to follow. what a good sunday.

      Yeah, really fucking hope this doesn't run late. Wanna watch the whole thing, but I ain't missing GoT

      Robin isn't low tier. He's like right above that. He's definitely worse than Flash tho. Hayatei is just that good. I know it sounds like i'm biased towards Hayatei, but Robin loses the same way Flash does but he's way less scary up close. Robin has better mid range neutral but most characters don't have to play that game with him. They just lame him out.

      Plus he has gaps people still don't exploit. People let him get away with b2 smart rang every time. etc etc etc

      Dragon repeatedly punished cancels into smart rang with b12, but Hayatei beat him nontheless. Hayatei is really good

      He got away with some vs Dragon too and I didn't say that he literally gets away with them every time. Just more than he should. Crimson always fishing.

      you did literally use the words "every time"

      but I knew what you meant lol

      Yes but I also used the words "people". There are definitely people he plays against who let him do it every time.

      Robin is a real weird character to me, he's good though.

      Easy there.. I was actually trying to back you up by seconding how good Hayatei is. Breathe Tweedy.. Breathe :p

      There's a dude in the third row trying to impress a chick by hating on Injustice.. And he's wrong about everything he's quoting about the game. Boooooooo... Hahaha

      Oh yay... another d1~trident rush to victory...

      Why is it that rushdown chars get downplayed like Flash & Robin but defensive chars like Aquaman get upplayed?
    23. shoshinsha

      The problem isn't offensive or defensive. The problem is how annoying the play style is. Deadshot is repetitive. So is Aquaman. And worse is that Aquaman's moves are relatively low-skill. His trait is simply a one-button combo breaker, and d1~TR is so easy and so safe and so much reward on hit or block. I love Aquaman as a character and really resent how shit they made him in this game. There's no reason for trident rush to exist as it does.
