    @bowlisimo Oh man I know what you mean. Mad kof’s play was like watching a performance art. From the technical side the precision of the pokes and the evasive teleport cancels to regain or alter the spacing of the match was mind blowing. From the spectator side the way that one match where they traded perfects of first characters and especially the reverse OCV that Bala pulled out near the end of the set was crazy. Even if you didn’t know the game the KoF finals were probably the best concentration of EVO moments this year. =D

    There was this moment after the reset when Bala just wandered the character select screen back and forth for almost a full minute. He was a broken man then and even someone who didn’t know anything about fighting games could see it

    Then for him to pull it together from that state for the reverse OCV was insane =D Great times. I worked most of the weekend so I’m still going over the archives. Legend has it SCV finals were Cervantes vs Tira o_O how crazy is that? =D

    (for anyone who wants to poke at the archives they’re http://www.twitch.tv/srkevo1/videos and http://www.twitch.tv/srkevo2/videos respectively, (sub streams were http://www.twitch.tv/8wayrun and http://www.twitch.tv/xiei for Virtua Fighter and Anime fighters respectively)

    @redswir1 Of course! If you’re up for some practice I’d love to get some matches with you =) just set a time and place~

    @shingro Thanks for the EVO heads up, I accidentally tuned in right before the Mad kof vs Bala championship match for KOF XIII. You know, I haven’t given a shit about fighting games since the MK/SF days, I don’t know what 99% of the lingo means, or know what the KOF series is about, or what any of the meters do, but man, that one match… I totally get it now. That series was insane and nail biting to watch.
