I haven't seen the video yet but he also has godlike sindel execution powers. Cancelling levitation off of low pokes!

I'm always impressed with people who play ANY fighter on an Xbox pad. God, they're so awful. Smug has the best Dudley in the world and does it all on Xbox 360 pad. It's incredible.

Right but he is the most accomplished Kabal player.

Having good execution doesn't automatically make you good at fighitng games.

You need fundamentals, footsies, pokes, counter pokes, MU knowledge etc etc
That's kind of a really obvious thing to say. I mean, I'm not being a dick but what does that have to do with anything? Nobody discredited REO. The post is about execution and the poster I responded to strictly mentioned execution. It's not like I think combos are what decide how good of a player you are. And obviously REO is far better than any of the execution gods mentioned above, but he's not on their level in terms of execution. He still has great execution and he's the best MK9 player to ever play, though I don't see how that's relevant.

What is going on guys, Ya Boi Zyphox here.
Who is then?

IMO Doc Dark , TonyT , Check , REO and ETC McFly are top 5 execution INPO
there is a difference however between combo video execution and in game execution. REO does his BnB's in tournament, not saying Doc or tony t can't (tony t at Winterbrawl was sick) but in that case i think you can make a case for REO, Doc, McFly and tony t (haven't seen Check play a match only combo vids). in tournament i think Exblades has good execution too, and tyrant as well.

Yeah this is a good point actually. In fact TylerLantern, one of MK9's premier combo guys in the US is kind of a good example. He makes these godlike combo vidoes but one of his main problems, from what I've seen of him, is he drops a lot of standard BNB's in match. It could be just tournament nerves though, in fairness. It's not like I'm blowing him up or anything.

I was astounded when I saw Tony T not drop a single one of those max damage Cyrax resets at NEC. The man's execution is insane. I've seen DoctrineDark play casuals and his execution is still fantastic. The video above is bananas, by the way.
